What is our prime weakness?

82 posts in this topic

lol at anyone that says oline. cam has time to throw just NO WEAPONS.

 

Does brees have a great Oline. i dont think so but he has plenty weapons.

 

WE NEED TOUCHDOWN SCORES!!!!

 

complete recievers not just a speed guy, a ify possesion guy, and 89 past his prime

 

We need a #1 WR a #1 CB and a Hog Mollie RT somehow someway in the offeseason. if we get that we will be able to take the South and compete for championships year after year

Tonight's loss was not the result of one single weakness. It was a number of things that just came together at once. It happens.

 

Oh, and I see KendrickPanther is trolling up this thread as well. Couldn't wait to blame Cam for a loss as usual.

 

Some people will never like Cam, and only wait for him to make mistakes, and it sadly has nothing to do with how he plays football.

Yeah you can throw recievers open I guess, but when guys like Donald LaFell continuously drop key receptions it is kind of worthless. Or you have Ginn alligator arming deep balls. what else can Cam do? Yeah a good secondary would be nice but we all know we have needed wide receivers for years now. Josh Gordon has been a monster and hell Da'rick rodger had 2 tds. There is a reason Cam's passing numbers have gone down. Steve Smith can't burn guys deep and yet we are still sitting here asking why he is still our number 1 receiver. (Thanks a lot Hurney)

 

In all honestly with Cam's talent and our defense it should look WR>OL>DB>LB (Klein should have started and should remain the starter.)

Are you new to football? We have ZERO run game. Cam is constantly being chased and forced to change the play that was called. Our O-line is weak. But you're right about a #1 WR. We need that badly as well. Give Cam more time, AND a line that can protect his ass so he doesn't have to bail ... and a line that can open holes for a guy who used to be an elite RB, we'd be golden.

we have zero run game because teams are now stacking the box. we also have a lot of guys hurt on oline that will be back next year. if we had a legit threat wr we could make teams pussy for playing 8. our front 7 on defense is great but we need on #1 CB to lock down one side of the field our Atleast other teams number #1 wr. Cam had time to throw are poss blocking is good but our wr just can't get separation fast enough. you rarely get #1 wr outside if the first round. this year has a deep class do even with a late pick we could get a legit future #1 our Atleast a better long term option than LAFAIL. I've said this one before I trust gettlemens eye fir talent to find us hid oline men in the third round. if we want Cam to take the next level he needs weapons and if we want our D to be out signature we need a shutdown corner. I believe we could get a big mollie right tackle in the 3rd. my need list goes

WR/TE

Season is definitely not over. We're a great team but here is my honest 2 cents

1. Our secondary

If our front 4 gets to the QB early =》 our crappy secondary looks decent and our D looks scary

If our front 4 does not get to the QB early => field day for any QB and hello 2011 defense

2. Oline

We need to upgrade at least 3 positions. Skill seriously lacking in our oline

3. QB

Cam needs to learn to make quick decisions and step up in the pocket. Ya our oline sucks but he shares the blame on some of the sacks. Needs to clean up his accuracy

4. RB

We need to address the RB position if we're gonna be a running ball control team. We can't use deangelo on power runs. That poo is driving me crazy. Those plays belong to stew or fatboy. Our best RB (stew) can't stay healthy, and the other good RB happens to be our QB. Which brings me to #5.

5. Playcalling on offense

My only beef with McDermott was some boneheaded blitzes today. I'm cool with him this year. My problem is Shula who has decided to go late 90s Tampa shula on us. If we're gonna be a power running team, I don't wanna see #34 run up the middle. Why did we sign Tolbert again? For short yardage situation and to get those tough yards up the middle right? Then use him! Also, Saints were blitzing the whole game and there was so much green in the middle. We could have done slants, quick outs, passes to RBs in the flat.....I wanna be a shula beleiver, but I can't. Dude has no imagination

We're still on the right track. We need a better secondary and oline. The rest can be corrected by the coaches

# 3: Stop listening to Chris Collingsworth (or others like him) last night. He was all over the place in his "ahem" analysis. So take a lot of what he said with a grain of salt (plus they can't always see or know a reason why a play happens or doesn't, even on replay). 

 

Cam did would he could last night, within reason. He certainly isn't one of top three needs, or reasons (as you're saying). Cam saves and extends way more plays in this offense than he kills. Remember that. 

 

The fact that, you don't have WR on this list (though this team has no legit deep, jump ball/50-50, or redzone threats) is telling.

Lol @ Cam being the weakest player on offense tonight.

The talent on our offense, outside of Cam, is garbage. Our WR's can't get open. And throw them open? Cam starts doing that then the picks are going to start coming in bunches. And when that happens, I guarantee Cam will get the blame for that. Our WRs are sorry, and have to be spoon fed the ball. The WRs we've got aren't capable of making difficult catches that you see other WRs around the league make. WRs have been scrubs for a couple years now, and a good portion of us have stated it. Cam didn't have a good game, but his OL was terrible and his wideouts didn't help out.

 

With RT and CB, I'm fine with grabbing a solid FA or finding someone beyond the 1st Rd.  We need a dynamic receiver in the worst kind of way.  We need a non-Cam playmaker, because we have ZERO otherwise.  Tolbert, Ginn, and Smitty are strong assets but we don't have a guy who can make the tough catches, jump balls, or what he needs to do to give us an edge.

Offensive line, no doubt.  Cam got sacked on some crucial third downs.  The line isn't built to give Cam a lot of time in the pocket to throw.  The team is built to run and play-action pass.  If last season was about double dipping the D-Line, next season needs to be about the O-Line.

As much as everyone is crying about the OL. We are one WR for Cam away from people praising the OL. People just see Cam getting hit and don't watch the play. It was even pointed out several times last night guys just failing to get open. Lafell would be 4th-5th string on any other playoff contender (Cam's big rookie year he was the 6th in receptions on team). He has Bad hands can't get away from defenders to save his life. The one thing that has been saving him here is his blocking and even that is dropping like Ginn trying to catch a ball hitting him in the #'s. More times than not Cam has been able get away from some pressure (see Miami game) and people eventually will get to him because no one can get open to throw to. You can have the best OL going against the leagues worst DL and they will still eventually get to the QB at some point. Bree's Wilson etc All have guys getting helping bail them out. Cam doesn't. Smith while still a top WR has lost a step making it easier to stop with a double team. Olson is Good but not one of those top 2 Graham and Davis who can make up for a #2 WR. Him as a 3rd option for Cam is ideal.

CB- Captain Munnerlyn is awful. Only way he should make the team next year is a spot on the "special" teams. As it has been noted on ESPN he has been one of the most targeted corners in the league. And it's easy to see why, the long TD and long first down vs miami the long 1st down pass vs Tampa looking lost at time last night. Him on the field has made his man an Easy bail out target for the other teams QB vs our front 7's pressure. After the long TD pass vs miami, I sat and watched Tannehill. EVERY time he would drop back he'd check over to Captain's guy didn't matter who he was covering.

Safeties aren't great but don't get any help from our corners.

OL-Gross has played Good this year and don't see why he wouldn't resign for another year or 2 the way he is playing and the way the team is winning. Guards down to our 3rd-4th string and still doing a solid job (see yards a carry last night). Bell is Bad but shouldn't be hard at all to find a vet FA or a 3rd rounder who will be better than him there.

Focus on WR's & DB's hands down need it the worse. Focus on OL in a year or 2 when Gross does retire and Cam starts to get a little older and into his 2nd contract.

Another note for the OL 1st beggers. Gawd forbid the WR's or DB's had the injuries the OL has had for the whole season, we'd be in a heap of trouble (think bringing armanti back as your #2 and Normans backup at starting Corner)

Well, Payton has won a super bowl... our guy had to get to 9-7 to save his job and just doesn't sound all that sharp in post game press conferences. I would say that they're not one in the same, do you agree?

 

Of course, I think Peyton has great job security, as he should. I just think it is extreme over one game.
