Mr. Scot

Roster changes?

49 posts in this topic

What should happen:

Norman to start

Thomas benched

Williams on ir

New lineman picked up

A. smith released

Most likely:

No changes

I didnt hear Norman's name once, but I am watching from a feed.  It looked like they replaced Thomas with DJ, was Norman getting any PT?  Also, Capt is kinda iffy too.

. Captain is more than iffy. I hate seeing cb's tackling their man. I'd rather see a pass deflected or int. captain was getting lit up by r.w. . But I guess it wasn't as noticeable.

That might be #1 but a close second is throwing a hail Mary instead of trying a 50 yard field goal to end the half against I think the Bears last season.

 

True, an RR said he did not want to pressure Medlock in this situation. Unbelievable. The past two seasons had their (coaching genius) moments.

While I am continually annoyed by playing with such a large cushion by our DBs, Josh Thomas didn't lose the game.  The offense did.  It's been said pretty consistently by others (and I agree), that when you hold an opponent to 12 points, you really need to win.

 

So let's look at the offense:

 

-Cut Cam because he didn't hit LaFell when he was running free, AND he played it safe the whole game?

-Cut Williams because he fumbled at the end?

-Cut Olsen because he had some major drops (where did these come from?)

-Cut the coaches because they weren't aggressive enough?

 

The Knee-Jerk reactions are the huddle are hilarious.  I appreciate the depths of fervor for our team, but we also need to respect there are certain realities.  When you don't make plays, or the other guys make'em; you're going to lose.  (possible misuse of semicolon!)

 

My take away from Sunday is:  Don't play to not lose.  Play to win (like our D did most of the game), and take some risks when you have someone out pacing the secondary (Ginn).

Josh Thomas gave up a QB passer rating of 158.3 when being targeted by Russel Wilson.

Since everyone mentioned Garry Williams I will look elsewhere. Whether Thomas or Norman starts depends on whether we will play more man or zone. Or whether Normannhas improved in zone coverage. He is much better in man coverage but struggled in zone coverage. If he has improved he starts I think. I think Scott starts at guard I just don't know if it is right or left. I think Ginn gets more work at wide receiver as we throw some deep. I think Ormond sits a game.

Did anyone else catch Panthers Talk yesterday?

The player guest? Josh Thomas. Lol...

Who better to have on for the fans than the guy that gave up the GW TD by looking absolutely horrible in coverage? Yay!

And Rivera seems to really like Smith. I doubt he's going anywhere.

I doubt they do anything other than sign someone on the line for depth to replace Williams' spot.

If Josh Thomas is starting the next game then that is a clear reason why Rivera needs to be sent packing.  Wilson had a PERFECT QBR against him Sunday.  PERFECT.

Armond should be gone, but he isn't going anywhere

That's the point I've been making all along with him... aside from his horrible decisions in-game, he seems to make personnel decisions based on something other than on-field performance.
