90% is a sad number if Finnegan plays

He has been playing like garbage. You want your WR beating him not wrestling and falling for his poo

 

oh i think he'll beat him. both of them are sort of hot-heads, and there is a pretty high chance smith gets into it with someone anyways. my bet is finnegan.

You guys all know how I feel about this Offense. We have moved the ball against everyone, the Rams will be no different. When we limit the WTF? moments, we are extremely efficient. Maybe not as explosive as last year, but IMO, this year is a more aggressive attacking Offense. Shula is dialing it in nicely.

Teamed with our Defense. This Offense can lead us to where we want to go.

6 of our 1st 7 possessions against the Cards we were 1st and 10 inside FG range. And we scored 6 points. WAY too many of those WTF? moments. Drops, penalties, sacks, more drops, fumbles, and INTs all made their presence felt. We limit them to 1 or 2, and we score plenty of points to put the Cards away. Same with Buffalo. We had plenty of opportunities to put them away early, and WTF? happened. Seattle was a clusterfug of WTF? That whole game was filled with em'.

I don't know why we get them, I blame the Football Gods, but until we limit them, or better yet banish them, we will struggle to be everything we want to be.

We play WTF? free. And we can be dangerous. We keep Cam happy. We keep the Huddlez happy, And we get to keep Rivera. And there was great rejoicing.

You play your game, keep you smack respectful, and basically do your job. Smitty got no problem with you.

You break that unwritten rule. You usually gonna pay. And many times you will pay more than you bargained for. There is a crypt somewhere. Full of the bones and remains of the shattered careers wrought by a riled up Smitty.

Thankfully, there is always some young gun aiming to make a name for himself just around the corner. We face a lot of young Ds in the near future. I think it is fair to say, it is a stretch of games Smitty can have a field day. lol.

The best thing for our Offense would be for Freddy and Donald to be WR and let Smitty be slot. Force Cam to improve his short game by giving him Smitty underneath to target. Freddy can run every route, is willing to impede moreso than block, but he is trying, catches everything, and can take the top off the D. Leaving Lafell and Olsen singled, as well as the RB. Lots of potential targets.

Ok I'm done for the moment. Thanks, and carry on.

yeah but sometimes the smallest thing lights his fire (see: xavier rhodes last week).

 

and cortland finnegan is a little poo.

 

let's clear some things up here. ginn is having a pretty good year, but he is still just a burner. he is not some fantastic route runner, he's a player that relies purely on his speed.

Smitty is a smart wily vet right now. He knows what he can, and can't, get away with. He will push your buttons til you pop. Very few have ever owned Smitty. I'll take my chances with Smitty thank you very much.

Oh, but you couldn't be more wrong. Freddy has proven he deserves it. He has worked his azz off to earn his playing time. It really isn't a matter of whose #1, but more of getting Smitty and Freddy on the field with Olsen and Donald. With DWill, Tolbert, maybe Barner or Stewy out of the backfield. That is a formidable group.

We have weapons. We just need to find a way to not only use them all, but make them effective as well.

Hot damm, I love me some Panther Offense.

This season will be won or lost by our coaches. Not so much the players.

We lost in arizona cause our offensive players including steve smith, we playing terribly.

Coaches had nothing to do with that.

Dropped passes didn't help but we were still leading a half time. 

 

They adjusted, we didn't.  Plain and simple.  19-0 in the second half?   Little yardage?  Poor play calling because we didn't adjust. 

 

Obviously we aren't going to agree.  So I will stick to my point and you can yours.   Bottom line we lost.

 

Whether the coaches or players.  Especially in tight games HAVE to step up.  Play harder and make those adjustments.

I just hope Shula doesn't allow Bell to lose this game. He CAN NOT block speed rushers. Long will take over this game if Bell doesn't get some help. I know he's showing improvement, but he pretty much gave up the Bills game and much of the Broncos game last year IIRC. 

 

Shula can not allow one man to shut down our offense. I can't even blame Bell anymore. You know he can't block Long by himself. Please don't even give him the chance to prove that he can. A plan better be in place before kickoff.

Another thought... Ginn's had some experience playing against the Rams too. He's had some success returning against them. I look for him to run one back this week.
