  1. Offensive Tackles cost us the game.

    Sorry,  but blaming the loss on the OTs or really any one facet of the game is a bit short sighted.  It was 100% a team loss,  though the defense did better than any other part of the game.  The truth of the matter is that this OL is the best we've had in years and that includes the OTs. They were good enough to get us to  17 wins this year and the superbowl. Does the mean they couldn't be improved? Nope, but they were still good and not the liability the OP makes them out to be. Remmers will probably be replaced by big Daryl (whom I think is going to be an absolute stud) and Oher is reliable enough to get us back to the superbowl again, but if Gettleman does happen to find us a VET LT (which, if we're serious about getting back there this year is the only direction we should go if any change is to be made to LT) then cool. if we are looking at the fix to get us back to the superbowl this year being an LT we pick up in the draft, we're going to be disappointed.  you won't find that guy outside of the first 5, maybe even 10 picks and even then finding one that is ready to start at a high level right out of the gate is rare.  What we have is what we need....continuity on the OL. Changing out more than one part of that OL would set us back probably half a season unless we were able to pick up a couple absolute studs who perfectly fit the blocking scheme and we're in place by the earliest OTAs.  It's true that one might fall through the cracks and Gettleman could pick him up, but I wouldn't count on it.   The biggest issues to address is DE and the secondary. I think Early is ready to the over, but there are too many long term question marks in the rest of the group and in the secondary we have two old vets and one high priced FA that might hit the road. Aside from that,  though, with Benjamin comin back I think we aabsolutely have all the pieces in place for us to go back and actually win it all next year.  I've said before (as if that matters) that the reaso not we didn't come home with a Lombardi wasn't the personnel,  it was that the moment was too big for us and we made uncharacteristic mistakes that I think were rooted in nerves. All we needed to do was do one more tim ssomething that the Broncos offense couldn't do at all, and that was get into the end zone. and if it wasn't for that fumble cam lost that resulted in Denver' s only score we would have won that game ( not to put the blame of the loss on cam).   Point is that this team, as is, was good enough to win it all this year. They were good enough to have a perfect record, but their two lone losses this year can come back to not the other team being better, but our team not having their heads where they needed to be. And this is a good thing because it's the issue that is easiest for this team to fix. any changes in personnel (aside from maybe losing 24) is essentially gravy.
  2. Seriously wtf is this Charlotte?

    Moral of the story....bow to the media and be their bitch or they will crucify you. Media isn't a mirror of society.  media  molds society.  And that's referring to all forms of media, especially social. But these reporters really have an exaggerated sense of self worth to the world and they despise anyone who doesn't play their game and they will go out If their way to tear you down, which is a power they fully believe they have.  they can build you up and they can destroy you. The most unfortunate thing about It Is society as a whole are exactly the sheep the press/media needs it to be for it to have its control.      
  3. Big Congrats to the Carolina Panthers

    Yep yep yep. Lots to be proud of and we're really just getting started.   
  4. Who was at fault?

    Hard to read all that wall of text especially.  with a migraine but it was a team effort.  there is no one person to blame. grade A certified fustercluck  
  5. Is Philly made of tissue paper?

    his head slammed on the turf after an incredible catch....and this was after talib tried ripping his head off. dude got massive respect from me. no way am i not calling him tough after that.
  6. Big congrats to the Broncos

    thanks for being classy and not an asshat like every other bronco fan we've had show up recently.
  7. Bayless and Stephen A on Mike Shula

    it was just like the atlanta loss. they came in expecting an easier game and got kicked in the nuts and couldn't recover.
  8. Winning with grace

    and i hope we play the same way next year. i want to be the most hated team in the league. i want to be on top of that hill and be the target for everyone. and i think after this loss, we'll climb back up there only we won't be bullied off again.
  9. Jeebus...

    yep. hamsters were roided up pretty well.
  10. Jeebus...

    i should have thanked them for their dollar, though.
  11. Jeebus...

    i know a lot of the visitors kept monsta and me busy last night.
  12. Winning with grace

    i understand, but thats pretty much a rearview mirror type thing. right now its too close to be saying, imo.
  13. Winning with grace

    you should write a letter to the charlotte observer like the concerned soccor moms and self righteous seahawk fans have been doing.
  14. Snakebit, bad decisions and betrayal

    this game was lost AS A TEAM. our loss was mental. we were mentally beat and that carried on over to the score. we played plaxico burress-ball....we shot ourselves in the leg. the good thing is, we can get it right and we will. remember, we went into this season less than full strength...not just without our #1 WR, and with a rag tag group of scrub WRs and a promising rookie, but a very young team...OGs and a RG with very limited starting experience and a reclamation LT project and a secondary that was kind of sketchy with a few old guys in the mix. this year we played ball the way we had been hoping to. we were dominant and physical. cam got experience and confidence really leading this offense and spreading the ball around in a very impressive way to receivers that kept crisco on their hands (even though that improved somewhat over the year). next year we can come out with confidence and a bit of fire that was lacking at the beginning. they now KNOW what they are capable of. they haven't just seen it, they've tasted and had their hands on it before it got ripped away. next year they come back and take what should have been theirs.
