Who's Idea was it...?

To use a read option as our base offense? Did they not notice what our offense was able to do last season?

And I thought the best thing to do for a struggling QB was to make it simple for him. Run the ball (the right way), screen passes, you know stuff to get his confidence up. Didn't Stewart catch a ton of passes last season?

Ahh I guess that makes too much sense...nvm

McDermott should also, but Chud threw away one of the best offensive schemes in our franchise history in favor of a college system. Huge colossal fug. While both should be gone, Chud fuged up the most.

the thing about the screens is that every screen pass is horrible. and if it isn't horrible, one of the three backs is dropping it or completely whiffing on the ball.

probably the most annoying thing about the offense besides the whole too-much-option thing.

Yeah I think our backs have dropped every screen pass thrown to them this season

Watching Rivera's pressers are becoming extremely hard. It even felt like he threw Cam under the bus in his presser today.

Did anyone catch his excuse for not running a QB sneak? He actually had the nerve to bring up the size difference between Kalil and the Seahawks DT's.

We ran the ball undercenter with a fullback, maybe once all game, and we expected Seattle to bite on the playaction fake on 4th & 1?

Rivera is in over his head, and that's the bottom line.

We need to clean house. I'm actually a bigger McDermott fan, than Chud fan at this point. I actually think if it was up to McDermott, we would see more of that attacking style defense that they've been talking about.

i think part of cam's regression is that he's pretty much learning an entirely new offensive system in his second year. instead of letting cam build on last year's offense chudz has basically burnt it and started fresh.

keep last year's playbook, couple it with cam's familiarity, and we're talking a completely different offensive showing in a number of these dud games.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
