  1. You get a top end corner for 1.4 this season and 14M next with no long term money on the books. Average that out and you have about 7.5M spread over this season and next for an elite outside guy.  Let him walk after next year when his age is getting up there. Or....sign him to a Revis type deal.  Those are your options.
  2. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    Oh, I agree, just pointing out that a ring is no given, especially when you don't play for one of the "darling" NFL teams, no matter how good you are. When I saw Rodgers play his first few years, I figured we were looking at another Brady type thing...lots of SB visits...Nope. Just hope that we get a few more cracks at it.
  3. We need a DE... so whom?

    This Super Bowl will push teams to over spend on edge rushers.
  4. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    I agree and disagree at the same time. We are in a far better situation that this franchise has ever been in going forward, however...... All you have to do is look at the past to know that a Lombardi is a slippery little trophy. Were you to look back at Marino, Manning 1, Brees, and Rodgers, there just isn't a guarantee, no matter how good your QB is, that you are going to get multiple shots at a ring.  I hope we don't follow suit.
  5. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    It will likely be the "easiest" chance for us to ever get a Lombardi. Outside of KB we had almost all of our "core" healthy. We had homefield throughout. Denver sported one of the worst offenses the Super Bowl had ever seen.  
  6. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    This one. We actually played well in 03, and I can stomach the loss a little better if we put up a fight.
  7. I know it didn't happen, just pointing out that we didn't need Cam to be super man to win, all we needed was to limit the turnovers to 1 and we probably had a parade in Charlotte yesterday....they couldn't do it. BTW I'm in no way blaming this only on Cam, that's foolish, the entire offensive side of the ball couldn't do their jobs.
  8. Yes, 200 yards passing with 1 passing TD, along with only 1 turnover probably would have won that game.    
  9. Cam doesn't throw the INT, we probably win. Tolbert doesn't fumble, we probably win. Cam/Remmers don't get a strip fumble into the end zone, we probably win. Gano hits the field goal, we probably win. Cotch catches the ball inside the 10, we probably win. Any one or two of those happen, we probably win. That is 100% on the players.  Could the coaches have put them in better situations?  Sure, but had any of those guys do what they are paid to do, and we probably win.
  10. I somewhat agree.    Let's just say this, imagine that no changes were made at all, now we know that isn't the case, but just say it is. Would we have won the game with just 1 fewer turnover and the field goal?  My say is yes, we would have walked out of there with a win....you just can't turn the ball over like we did, and that is much more so on the players rather the coaches.
  11. No, it's not. A simple 200 yards passing with 1 TD and 1 turnover from the QB positon would have won this game, that's far from a herculean effort.
  12. I'm not making excuses for the coaches either....I just put about 70% blame for the loss on the offensive players, they just couldn't get out of their own way.
  13. Are you really making excuses for the drops, fumbles, overthrows, etc?  Or did you gloss over that part of the game?   The lights were too bright for this team, the coaches, players....everyone.  However the players were put in a position to be able to win this game, and couldn't, multiple times.  That cannot be overlooked or glossed over. Shula can't hold onto the ball, he can't catch a seam route, or pick up a free blitzer.  I have been critical of Shula for a long time now, but this game lies squarely at the feet of the players, and I think that Cam knew that as well.  Hence everyone up in arms over his body language, press conference, attitude, etc.  I don't get into those things, as I don't care, but the product on the field Sunday was lacking..not in ability, but execution.
  14. I'm not forgetting anything, and not glossing over the poor coaching job.  (I didn't like the gameplan either) However, the players miscues cost us this game plain and simple.  4 turnovers in the Super Bowl rarely gets you a win, this one is no different. Go back and look at some of the throws, some of the runs, the dropped passes....that is on the players, and it's the one thing that had me worried all week, and frustrated for the past 3 days. Big time players make big time plays, problem was, we only got them from the defensive side of the ball.
  15. Giants release Beason, considering retirement.

    Is that you Marty? We drafted Mayo to learn the LB positons and take over for Klein when he rides off for a good 2nd contract.   Also, can Beason play special teams?  If not, who takes over for that missing spot? It's just not a good idea to bring in another player at LB who is long in the tooth, when you already have TD on the roster. With Star, TD, Luke, and KK, I don't think that the defense needs anymore vet help.  The offense....that's a different story.
