Guys...we are not making the playoffs

85 posts in this topic

But it doesn't matter. We were never going to make the playoffs and we weren't trying to make the playoffs. This season was about building for the future and it's working. This is an extended preseason for this team in hopes to be ready to roll next year.

This team looks very promising but we do have many holes to fill. Our QB has two more years before we have to decide anything on him but all signs point to it being a good pick, as long as he doesn't regress like many do. Our receivers area a threat with Smitty, a promising Gettis returning, and any one of the other young guys stepping up. TE is one of the strongest parts of our offense and Olsen is young, Shockey is a leader, and Barnidge will be given a chance to prove he's worthy of being in the lineup when the time comes. Our backs are as talented as they come, despite their utilization in this offense. We have as many weapons as anyone else in the league.

Defense is another story. This draft should be defensive heavy with the exception of a possible stud WR or T. Our young DTs will have an offseason to get stronger and prove they weren't just quantity picks, but quality picks as well. We'll get our leader back in the middle. We need a #2 corner to develop and it would be nice to see improved safety play.

Despite this team looking for it's 5th win of the season and no real trademark, quality wins thus far, we are a threat to almost anyone out there and next year looks even better.

That whole "In The Hunt" graphic ESPN had up really messed with my head. I almost spit out my beer when I saw us on there.

If you want to focus on that, so be it.

C'mon. He made a level-headed and unbiased post and you're still going to call him out? There was nothing Cam bashing in what he said. Yes, he comes off as a troll most of the time when dealing with Cam, but there was nothing negative in his post. He said "IF". He didn't say he would. He even said it looked like a good pick.

Nothing groundbreaking, but a solid post, nonetheless.

I feel dirty giving TRD pie....but that was probably his best post since the Cam era began.

    • I'm somewhat concerned over Cam's shoulder - but the LB group really has me worried. Luke's concussion really has me freaked out still... and I pray that TD's ACL continues to be strong.
    • The best part about trying to discuss racism or privelege with people is how when you mention these terms they immediately go to "I've worked for everything I ever had, nothing was ever handed to me", demonstrating that they don't understand what privelege is and how it's not an accusation. And instead of listening to what you say, they're in defensive mode and spend the entire argument denying that they are racist, dominate the conversation, and don't learn anything, and you never even accused them of being a racist to begin with. It's exhausting.
    • The KB hate is ridiculous. Blaming him for hogging targets that should have gone to Ginn? First of all, Ginn had more receptions and yards in 2016 than 2015. Sure he went down in TDs, but I'd expect KB to always have more TDs. Second, how do people forget that in his first game back from ACL that he was our best offensive weapon against the vaunted Denver D? We scored 20 (should have been 23) points against Denver with KB and 10 in the SB without and our offense was actually -5 based on turnovers.

      It gets tiring to see the revisionist history trying to blame KB for our offensive drop because he was a target hog.

      I'll throw out that if KB played in the SB we would have won. In 3 games against Denver Cotchery and Ginn had 7 receptions for 96 yards and caused an INT/muffed a huge pass before the step sack for a TD, regardless of replay officials. In 1 game against Denver KB had 6 receptions for 91 yards and a TD.
