    DB depth is looking scary

    In fairness, not many teams have enough quality depth on Oline to handle missing three starters well. If they do, then they are probably lacking in other areas. DB's have been a problem since the Superbowl. We have drafted, with mixed success. Signed a few free agents, but nothing has really worked. Maybe it will work out this year eventually, especially if Gaulden and Jackson show something and Searcy can get and stay healthy. Might be the difference between a solid year, and being a legit contender.
  2. At this point in the season, I don't think we know what to expect from either team. So I would say Panthers win at home 24-17

    The Super Bowl is going to stink. Amiright?

    The Superbowl will be great if we are in it and win it. It will suck if Atl, New Orleans, Tampa, or Dallas are in it and win it. Otherwise, I will watch it, but won't really care that much. I vaguely remember watching a little of last year's halftime show, but would probably fail a multiple choice test if asked who was the halftime performer.
  4. I put it mostly on the defense but the offense doesn't go completely blameless. I don't really care about air coryell, and I think sometimes that to much is made of that. The forty niners invented the West Coast offense, but still threw plenty of deeper (15 yards or more) passes to their receivers. Our offense didn't get going until the game was nearly out of hand. CMC having nearly 40% of our receptions is not a winning option for the future. If we can't throw it downfield, we won't win many games, unless our defenses morphs into the east coast version of the 2012 Seahawks over the next few games.
  5. Its bad that we are throwing to the checkdown to much, and not throwing the ball downfield more.
  6. Couple of important things to point out I think. 1. Our pass rush was great in week one, terrible in week 2. It's just as wrong to say its non existent after one bad game against one of the best teams irt pass protection as it is to say that the pass rush was great after week one. 2. Atlanta is one of the least sacked teams in the NFL. They have a good pass protecting oline and say what you want about Ryan, but he tends to get the ball out quick. We are not going to have a six sack game against Atlanta.

    Does Funchess deserve a Payday?

    Its interesting seeing so many put Samuel ahead of Funchess. I hope Samuel is great, but he actually has to stay healthy and prove it a meaningful game.

    Run defense concern

    Haven't watched the Bengals this year, but I do remember Bernard running thru our defense virtually unopposed last time we played.
  9. Funchess and Moore are two different types of receivers. And Cam has some comfort with Funchess and is developing a comfort level with Wright. Funchess won't lose many snaps to Moore. As was mentioned earlier, the comparison should be Smith and Moore. And I do think at some point Moore will get more snaps, but I don't know when that will be. But there was never much of a chance it would be in game two unless injuries forced him into the lineup. And fwiw, that is true of most coaching staffs, not just ours.
  10. Personnel changes have been made in the past. In 2014, we made lots of changes towards the end of the season. This year, it might be harder to make changes, as we don't have that many ready replacements.

    Dj Moore $ Curtis Samuels..

    I am fairly certain Samuel actually has to be relatively healthy and active to play.

    Run defense concern

    Ok, I should have read the entire thread.

    Run defense concern

    Gaulden played about 25% of the snaps yesterday. He was a problem irt the run game, but he certainly wasn't the only problem. For example, Luke K uncharastically missed a few tackles that he would normally make.

    Run defense concern

    I think its more about focus. We focused on stopping Elliot, and did it. I think our focus yesterday was on stopping their receivers and we didn't worry as much about the run game. Unfortunately, Atlanta is just a bad matchup for us, with great receivers that our secondary can't match up against, so we didn't stop either the run or the passing game. I do think we will do better next time around.
