I think this game Sealed Rivera's fate. We are starting to see why many teams passed on him with his multiple interviews for a HC gig. From what I understand JR didn't want him and he was Hurney's hiring?

The 90+ million backfield needs to be traded off mostly this offseason. I would re evaluate this entire OL including Gross. At least one of the RB's needs to be traded and we focus on getting one guy the meat of the carries to build a rhythm. Yeah we need a good backup, but not two starters and another overpaid guy.

DT's still suck, DB's not getting it done. LB is about the only quality position we have.

I just have to think losing at home the way we did to John Fox was the final nail in Rivera's coffin.

The entire roster will be evaluated and gutted. Prepare to see familiar names disappear

You know it's bad when you starting thinking about your first round pick and freeze up trying to decide what to address. LT? DT? CB? OG? S? WR?

You could make a good argument for any of those positions. We need so much help.

It's good and bad.

Bad - the amount of holes that need plugging (hahhh)

Good - you really can't miss on position

Upgrading our OLine just became the priority. Along with a playmaking safety in the 2nd round

Need more line help in FA

Ron Edwards is old and average. Dwan has been a pleasant surprise.

Also our depth behind these guys are Andre Neblett and Sione Fua. Yeah.

I was trying to be nice, you said it much better :-)

I gotta go with LT high first round. Gross is not doing poo anymore. If we can get him to take a pay cut/ restructure maybe his slow ass can play RT?

Center is fine, but the guards got blown the fug up today. Bad news is we are going to have to do all of it through the draft next year. There will be a massive cap hit from trading / Cutting Hurneys mess of vastly overpaying average talent.

Oh and a #1 AND #2 WR will be needed as well.

Fun times ahead!

We have so many holes that using Martys old method of drafting the best player is almost a lock to help us. The difference is who Marty thinks is the best player and who the rest of the league thinks is. Thank goodness he is gone!

I'd like to point out that Fua has actually improved this season even though we all know him best for his role in Boogie Nights as Heather Graham's co-worker

Why the overreatcion....this team has given away games....some nice additions, keep the coaching staff, keep Cam, get a quality WR and risk on mid round RB and keep beefing up the D....call me crazy but the team didn't play that bad today....The offense never got into a good groove, (1) the broncos D was awesome...it was (2) you have to run the ball....at least a tease to keep the LB's from tyring to kill the QB.

It goes back to Hurney's philosophy of "building through the draft." You just can't do that these days. You need outside help. Not every draft pick is going to be a winner.

I will never ever cling to that loser philosophy.

I definitely would cut Gross and Gamble, which is where our biggest savings will come from.

Oh, and It's good to see you finally evaluate other players on the team not name Cam.
