It's not shula, before shula we have had the same issue for past a decade, besides smitty and mushin we haven't had any wr worth a damn on the roster(maybe lafell). The lack of urgency in that particular position is baffling and looks like it will be that way for a couple seasons unfortunately.
Also i don't know what it is with us and hanging on to players longer then we should,it has became a big flaw over the years and continues to grow, that and less talented players getting reps
just a quick rant for the guys who are always screaming armchair gm's or i trust the front office, and so on, including the oh so classic "i'm glad you're not the gm"
my question to you is, then what is this forum for? is every single person on this forum suppose to agree with the moves made by the team?
even funnier is when those types go into other threads saying that but as soon as a Mike Shula thread pops up they're the first in there going ape poo, your trust with Ron and Dg disappeared that fast???
p.s. I still don't understand the Bersin and Philly Love fest
dumb dumb move, i'm really on the fence with ron or DG whoever is making these moves every-year it's the same song and dance, we end up cutting better players then the ones starting and/or playing players that have no business wearing a jersey in the nfl. Quit with the small town high-school football shenanigans
How does a guy like boykin get cut when you have a player like Brown having the preseason he had ??????
when we start playing the better players then we will have a shot at a superbowl until then our probability of getting there will be slim i don't know why Rivera has this small town football club mentality, doesn't put the best product on the field and has some strange loyalty to sub par players Bersin should be our 4th or 5th wr, we can't waste years of football waiting for players to catch on if they're not 1-3 round picks, we're the only team i can think of that let mediocre players linger on the roster several seasons before we cut ties
i'm on the boykin wagon, philly played bad this whole pre-season
i don't understand Rivera, i remember when David Gettis was busting peoples ass in pre-season but because he sucked in practice didn't get reps with the 1's,now philly is sucking it up in pre-season and continues to get reps????
to be honest if Rivera doesn't stop this bs soon i'll be convince we won't win a superbowl with him, you have to put your best players on the field........
verge of being cut and rightfully so........time to let other guys get a shot, we went through this song and dance last year with philly as far as punt returns, it's time to see things for what they are instead of waiting til he drops a game winning td
Hardy's play help elevate players around him on d, kb's play didn't imo and really isn't his fault since the other wr's failed to take advantage of that, this year seeing how ginn is playing so far he would have benefited the most from kb playing,along with funchess and boykin imo.
Hardy just took over games, Ny gaints and Falcons, his personality was great to, and even with the incident last season had majority of the locker room on his side. it's unfortunate but seeing our young guys step up and with the addition of shaq it's hard to not imagine what this defense would have been like with hardy still here.
we had to scheme mostly for missing hardy, our d couldn't generate any pressure with out sending a extra man, there was no more 4 man rush once hardy was out. KB did beast it, but majority of the season it didn't matter because our d kept giving up 30+ and we didn't have a number 2 because our gm keeps building the roster for the future instead of now
Hardy hands down, with Rivera being coach we always rely heavy on defense,to a flaw at times, so losing a pro bowl de(to some bullshit i might add) sucked last year and will continue to suck until ealy catches on and makes us forget
