    Instead of telling t
    he media to screw themselves which does nothing,  stop clicking on these articles giving them exposure. That is the only way to impact them

    First of all the run games includes everyone. It includes wide receiver reverses it counts quarterback runs and traditional tailback and fullback runs as well. Several of Cams big runs were on designed runs, if you include them then you include the broken plays as well. We run the read option folks. Cam is not a QB on those plays as he never throws the ball. He runs it so he is runner pure and simple.
    Taking him out as a runner when that is a big part of his game is like deducting passing yards thrown on screens or dumpoffs to running backs because they aren't traditional receivers.

    All I know is that in years past we would have lost to one or more of these teams. We often played up or down to our competition. This year we are winning the games we should. So far this is awesome and we are enjoying the best start of the Rivera era.

    Not surprising at all. I was on his bandwagon all off season and told folks he was going to have a good year and be a great addition. Until Benjamin went down I wasn't counting on being a number 1 but I said he could be a number 2.

    This conversation is very premature. Let's see what happens the rest of the year. I do see us asking for a pay cut next year like we did with Gross. Not sure he would go for it. I would love to see some others break out this year which enhances our options.

    Exactly.  If you are glad you have him then say so and stop qualifying with left handed remarks or criticisms like he isnt a great football mind.  Because he is which is why he won coach of the year in 2013.

    The holding calls and facemask penalties that were not called far outweigh the ones that were called.  And yes I know that holding penalties could be called all the time but when they impact the play and allow quarterbacks to escape obvious sack opportunities it feels like BS. One of the main reasons we have so few sacks this year  is a number of times our front four got pressure but were pulled down from behind or tackled

    Stopped reading at you cant say that Rivera is a great football mind.  If you can't see that Rivera is a very good coach who understand what it takes as a player and a coach then anything after that is wasted. He is considered one of the best defensive minds in the game.  And if you know defense inside and out you obviously have to know offenses as well or you wouldnt know how to limit opponent's opportunities,

    So if we arent good at gameplanning and making adjustments then why is the offense always better in the second half and why doesn our defense get better as the game progresses.

    He kept Shula for exactly the reasons named.  He knew Cam would need consistency and instead of trying to learn different systems, become proficient in one system.  Cam's improvement from year to year is a direct result of playing in the same system and learning to master it.  Or you can have guys like Alex Smith who go from system to system and struggle.
    His loyalty to his coaches and players is why guys like Jared Allen wanted to be here and why this franchise is considered a good place to land.  Shula is learning and developing as well. Rivera holding onto him is a recognization that the issue isnt playcalling so much as getting Cam to be a master of this offense and surrounding Cam with enough playmakerrs to run Shula's system. Funny that Cam is getting recognition for carrying the team despite a lack of talent yet Shula doesnt get the same recognition for developing plays that mazimize what Cam does best and developing the guys he is given into being the best they can be.  Otherwise why is Ginn doing so well in our system yet sucks elsewhere. Maybe Shula is doing a fairly good job at taking marginal players like Bersin and Ginn and making the most of them.  Instead of criticizing Ron and Shula we should be praising them for doing a lot with so little.

    The problem with stats is lack of context. For example a 25 yard drive where we score a TD is worth a lot more than a 70 yard drive that nets no points. But total yard stats would disagree. 
    The only stat that matters is points for versus points against for any given game.
    Maybe turnover advantage for each game is a good predictor. 
    Cumulative stats and averages don't really show matchup results which is what matters in individual contests.

    If it were up to me I would want as many easy games as possible. It isn't as if beating bad teams gives you less of a win than beating a tough team does. 
    I bet the undefeated dolphins in 1972 had a few easy games along the way. All people remember is how many they won not who they played.

    This is exactly what we hoped for going into the bye. I like this team mentality. Grind it out on both sides of the ball and do whatever you have to do to win.

    Even casual fans can see the defense won this game today not the offense

    yep. Plus the defense has been good when it has been close. Truth is that many of the yards and even points were when we were sitting on a lead playing zone.
