I love the "all this talent" argument.

We have a couple of good RB's.

A couple of good LB's.

One good corner.

One good DE.

One good LT.

One good C.

One good QB.

One aging but good WR.

The only player on this team that is a top 5 talent at his position is Kalil right now.

This team will turn things around when we start drafting superior athletes. Tall, strong, fast guys (Seattle defense???) and when we utilize a more consistent offense. Traditional sets can show up every week. Power running, play action, spread formations, boot leg....all those things we are capable of doing with our personnel....

Coaching Mistakes player mistakes

1. Benching A proven FS over a 4 backup FS that cant cover in the passing game. Martin had tackling issues last year but that can be coached if you want the man.

2. Dc is not a true DC and is no more than an assistant DC. End of subject.

3. The run option is crap. Last year it worked due to lack of scouting on Cam and what he could bring to the game. Chud needs to change things up each and every season instead of the same plays from last season. DC's have had plenty of time to scout our offense and they have built a good defense for it.

4. Homerun passes. This needs to stop. Yes we all love excitement. and we all love the big plays. However, you cannot come out and try to through the damn deep ball every single passing down. they need to start off slow with short routes to get came in a comfort zone.

5. Defense. Beason is just as guilty as anyone. WHERE IN THE HELL DID THE TACKLEING GO WITH THIS TEAM? Since when is anyone trained to do nothing but shoulder tackles, Where in the hell is the wrap tackles gone to!

6. Benching a 2 year starting CB over an unproven rookie that has since blown as many games as the 4 year backup FS. Captain may not be the best cover CB but he’s not afraid to tackle or take a risk to stop a big play.

7. Draft issues. We knew we had issues this offseason with the secondary and the Dline. But we draft a OLB which is the one position on defense we are deep with talent. Yes TD may not have made his 3 come back this season. But he had some good talent that setup last season and produced. Senn for one to me proved last season he can play this game at a high level and he’s better than just a special team player.

8. Running game is in the shitter. We paid these guys al this money; let them run the damn ball. We paid good money for a strong FB let him in the damn game and run block for a change. Yes we have issues on our Oline. Rookie RG, and a second year RT. Now our C is done for the season. There are ways to game plan around your weak points in any position.

9. Players... Players need to come together as a damn team and stop looking at each other every time something goes wrong. I see it all the time on defense. Those players are confused out there in the secondary. A lot of blown coverage and this includes the LB's as well. this leads me back to coaches. If the players are confused about what coverage they have whether it be zone or man, there’s an issue with coaching.

Ive been saying it for a while now - just cause youre gullible enough to pay top money to some average guys doesnt make them some sort of elite game changing superstars.

Every single person complained about Martin last year and how he needed to be replaced and now people are complaining that they tried to upgrade the position?

so we should applaud them just because they tried, even though they failed?

No, everything does not have to be polar opposites. There is a lot of room between applauding the results of a decision and complaining about the move being made. I'm surprised that people complain about benching a "proven starter" when hat "proven starter" sucked major ass.

absolutely.

better to have tried and failed than to have just accepted the status quo.

i hate people being dissatisfied with failed attempts to improve and then whining for the old days of mediocrity and the old status quo.

the only thing worse than failing to improve is not trying to at all.

replacing kasay with mare might have been the wrong move, but moving on from kasay was the right move. we just picked the wrong guy. people are arguing that replacing fox with rivera was the wrong move. i would say moving on fox was absolutely the right thing to do. whether rivera was the right guy to replace him with or not is still up for debate, imo.

replacing martin was the right thing to do. nakamura might have been the wrong one to do it with, tho.
