lucas has had a bad season, tonite was just the icing. i think we will cut lucas in order to sign peppers and maybe gross. too bad marshall hasnt played very well, but at least he is cheaper.

It may be a blessing in disguise that Marshall's play has dropped off a little this year. The front office should jump at the opportunity to extend him while they have a little leverage.

Lucas looked terrible and Gamble didn't light it up either. Marshal looked lost when he was on the field. CJ Wilson might get some playing time sooner rather than later.

Great win tonight, and I am thoroughly enjoying it...

Howevah....

Our next three opposing QB's are Cutler, Eli, and Brees, all of which can light it up. Our secondary needs to get better quick, all of em.

good point. i cant beleive how cheap he is playing for right now though. i think i saw a website that says he makes around 500K a year right now. I'm sure lucas is making almost 5x that amount.

Bryant looked good because of Lucas' crappy play. Playing 20 yds off receivers is bad enough, but to sit there and argue with the ref while the guy you didn't cover walks into the endzone is unthinkable.

Denver will likely come out and try to do 4WR sets all game long, it is kind of hard to believe that we locked down the saints passing game earlier this year.

We are going to have to put one of those up on Denver.

Yea, what happened Fox?????

I don't know if it's fair to put all of the blame on Lucas. There was no safety over the top on most of the big passes he's given up, which leads me to question if Godfrey is getting out of place too often. Don't get me wrong, Lucas isn't playing well but neither is the secondary as a whole (with the exception of mostly good play from Gamble).

yea, its brutal. but i admit i do like the practice we will be getting while we are getting ready for a playoff run. i would rather play tough playoff caliber teams than creampuffs right before the playoffs. maybe the secondary will have a chance to get some good game film to figure out what they are doing wrong.

Good point. This last tough stretch is at least preparing the team for playoff caliber teams.

Re-watch the highlights. On both big plays, Lucas was one on one. And he let him get in the endzone for the 2nd TD. He was getting siked the hell out of on the fakes, he was falling down/couldn't keep his balance. He was getting picked on, and still couldn't do anything

Then got benched

THEN DANTE WESLEY CAME RIGHT IN AND GOT BACK TO BACK INT'S, BUT DROPPED THEM. THATS EMBARRASSING FOR LUCAS TOTALLY

Im not putting all the blame on him because our pass defense has been horrendous since ARI game

Lucas and Marshall both bit on one of the long balls. So not all of Lucas's fault. Lucas's awareness on another one was all his fault. He slipped, but made it back to Bryant and could've easily had an INT... but once again looked lost as hell.

He doesn't seem to be able to make any plays on any passes, QBs could throw anything his way uncontested. It really confirms my suspicions of it being him when Wesley comes in and defends 2 passes for almost INTs.

I say we stick w/ Wesley to start next game and see how much of a difference that makes. It's just becoming way too common of Lucas getting killed out there and I hate to see the trend continue this late in the season.
