From weeks 5-10 they can only flex 2 of those 5 weeks. I would think they would want to hang on to using those for something really good. Plus the Eagles free falling still makes for good talk if they continue to lose
Need Brown. If Ginn goes down you need at least one person who can pretend to play WR that can actually run fast. That is why Brown is active IMO each week. Play a game without Ginn or Brown and it alters opposing defenses. We have zero over the top threat. Philly at least presents the threat even if he can't catch
Simple. Cotchery comes back and you deactivate either Bersin or Norwood. Next game is Seattle. Norwood may actually have some purpose there as he knows the Seattle DBs better than anyone on our roster. Going forward the last spot probably comes down to practice and matchups.
not gonna win many games when the refs do to you what the refs did in the first half of the 49er game....we outplayed them in the first half and were losing b/c of bogus officiating. That was the ballgame after that. This Seahawk matchup is a coin flip IMO. There rush game has taken a step back.....and that impacts everything b/c the last two years that has carried their O and allowed the D to be elite
I wouldn't call Martin a big back though... Carolina was one of the few rain games as well so weather alone was going to impact tackling Sunday. I won't put too much into them trying to hammer guys vs the run in that type weather. Both RBs require you to wrap up that played (including Stew). Can't just thump them. Both RBs shed guys all game at first contact.
I think most people realize overall Dave is a defensive minded guy... which his tenure overall would show a slant to IMO. I think a lot of WR lacking teams are kicking themselves for not bringing in James Jones. I realize Rodgers is throwing him the ball but it is clear he can play... 13th in yards and 1st in TDs.
Ron has never had a team ready after a bye even vs an easy opponent. I don't think Seattle is that good but based on Ron's history I wouldn't wager even someone else's money he will win @ Seattle after a bye (a tough road game even when Seattle stinks). then we play 3 teams in 15 days. That is a lot of football and means we aren't gonna have time to be as prepared for all games....so I think schedule makes the GB ugly for us. would have been tough under better circumstances. I think they dismantle us. Rodgers is a beast and we will be physically tired and not as prepped as needed Eagles and Colts? Us healthy on D? I think we got those. So I think we go 2-2 the next 4. I think everyone would take 6-2 if you were told that the day we found out KB tore his ACL.
No. Plus, Norman wants straight up elite money. Gettlemen probably sees a young talented kid....who still gets thrown on all day b/c opponents see a guy who still gets beat on routes often and overplays routes. So they throw at him....and to date when they have made the throws Norman has been on his game. But it is hard to ignore why teams are throwing at him b/c they see plays their offense or ones they have studied prior could of had on him. I just think Carolina and Norman currently aren't on the same page. Once the season ends I think a clear picture will help get a deal done. Norman leaving would be bad for Norman. Bad for us. Basically a Demarco Murray type situation at CB IMO. It works here. But it works for many reasons.
