every year, my birthday tends to happen during one of our worst losses of the season.  i'm really getting tired of that.  these last two years, meaning last year and this, we face the giants.  i fervently hope to see a gridiron crater created on the field where we leave their psyches after this particular encounter, as i'm that fed up of having the team i put my heart and soul into get embarrassed on my, uh, "special" day.  

 

that said, it's not like anything meaningful ever happens on that day anyway.

I have to admit that I wasn't overly excited about the Short pick. I was expecting and wanting a S. However, I wasn't mad about it either. I just thought that a very good S would serve us better. But I can see the Gettleman direction and I like it...

While assuming that we will make the playoffs this year based only on applying the changes we made this offseason to last year's schedule, with its own countless variables, is logically questionable, I do think that immediate production from Star and Short will at least result in better chances of making the playoffs because our run defense would be much better. Last year, I honestly think other teams' running games gave us more trouble than their passing games. Adding Star and Short will help with that.

Not saying we'll make the playoffs this year. I'm saying we would have made the playoffs last year if we had won those three games and that those three games would have been won on one play apiece with better interior defensive line play.

Playoffs will depend on the coaching and how our S/CBs perform. We have plenty of playoff caliber talent at almost every other position

 

Gettleman says load up on big guys and rely on a second tier secondary. 

 

We will find out how this philosophy works in a few months.

Our fate this season now rests with the OLine's performance. If we can open holes and run the ball, then we are playoff bound.

Not necessarily....Chicago was 10-6 and they didn't make the playoffs. Or have you gone through the tiebreaker scenarios with Minnesota? Unfortunately....10-6 is no guarantee in the NFC with all of the strong teams.

Yeah years from now most of you will look back and say, "anybody remember that one guy who lost that Atlanta game on the Hail Mary throw?"

Meanwhile the memory of me standing in my wedding tux surrounded by my friends huddled over a small smart phone watching that play happen just moments before I make the biggest change of my life will forever be burned into my retinas for all eternity.

That is probably true.
