What is the huddle concensus terribly wrong about this year?

75 posts in this topic

No need for anyone to have a meltdown, but unpopular opinion alert incoming:

Cam might still have problems with losing properly next year. We all know it's true, we're just huge homers and are blinded to it at times. Cam is a sore loser, and it affects him in games when things aren't going his way. The second half of last season it seemed like he was finally maturing, but will this continue if we get off to YET ANOTHER slow start this year? Obviously no one knows for sure, but I do know this: Cam is the most critical part of this team. If he can step up both his play and leadership, he can take this team to a new level. If he keeps reverting to a sixth-grader mentality when losing or not playing perfect, this team will never reach its full potential.

tl;dr- We all want to hope Cam has finally grown up, not so sure if he really has. Time will tell. His development into an elite quarterback is what is holding us back from getting to the playoffs and making a run.

Another one I just thought of: don't expect Star and KK to be dominate forces in the first quarter of the season. I expect gradual progression with both of them. Rarely are DT's dominate in their first year in the league (exception: Suh).

I personally don't give a poo about Cam being a sore loser....bigger problem for years is we have had too many good losers.

Also, I think our DTs could frankly suck next year. DT isn't a plug and play spot. They get abuses often early. Not a talent issue as much as it is paid professionals being smarter and knowing more

True...every year we are super confident in something and it highly disappoints and a worry normally isn't that bad.

So based on the talks....either Steve Smith or the defensive line disappoint.

Either our secondary or someone not named Smitty is out most productive WR (with Smitty being decent)

not true a lot of people been saying we needed a WR this year because of smitty aging and could drop off big time at any moment

Defensive adjustments lacking.

Overall, IMO most people here believe Smith can carry the WR corp in 2013....like he has been doing.

Personally, I think the step backwards last year was much bigger than some realize. It will continue IMO

The guy hates to lose....again, I personally don't care he is like that. Rather that than the other way around. He has been like that since he was 5....I doubt it will ever legitimately change.

Cam is no more childish, in the context of football, than the 34 yr old Smitty who is praised around here is a leader of this franchise

Wait, answer is easy.

Just like other sub par coaches like Chud and Scott Shanahan....Shula will be labeled as the next mad scientist.

I am going out on a limb here. Everyone thinks Shula will struggle as OC.

I am going to say that he installs a nice balanced attack and the offense cones out clicking.

Hope Zod is wrong and I am right.

This team has many question marks heading into the season. Cam isn't high up on my list.

Are we going to let this douche hang around all offseason?

    • But we don't have the complete list.  We only know the players we have been linked to because it was released by the player or his agent.  The team doesn't release their contact list, and not all meetings get released by the player or agent.  Anyway, we also talked with guys at the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine game, and combine.  So most likely, we have at least had a conversation with every player that is a possibility.  And if the team feels comfortable with those meetings as well as what they saw on tape, scout reports, combine performance, pro day performance/interview, etc., then there may not be a reason to set up a formal meeting.
    • I don’t care if this is only 4 players, I think we should capitalize on the talent in this draft and get who we want.  Here’s 4 potential starters at critical spots:       Jamal Adams SS LSU 6’1 This guy elevates the defense.  Arguably more than any other player in the draft.  I know we want offense but Adams is hard to ignore if available.     John Ross WR Washington 5’11 188 4.22 I want a playmaker and this is a playmaker.  If Davis and Williams go first and he’s in the 20s, we’re trading up.  I believe this as much as raspberry milf juice.  This ain't just about 4.22.     Jordan Willis DE Kansas State 6’4 255 10” hands 33.5 arms Another defensive linemen? But we've got Peppers, CJ, and Addison! Yeah and now Horton and Delaire are going to be off the team.  This footballer is projected to go higher that a ton of people are surmising and has been having a meteoric rise (that is once online browser-writers realized how high scouts are looking at him)      Jeremy McNichols RB Boise State 5'9 214   I will call him speedy-rumble mctubberjackal.  Absolute ownage in many regards.
