#3146995 Now That We've Won, Let's Collectively Marvel At Norman's Incred...

Posted by xav8tor on 21 December 2014 - 04:14 PM

Norman and Brown both have a lot of upside in their respective positions, and are already performing well.  However, much of their play has been negated by immaturity, cockiness, and an occasional inopportune lack of attention to Football 101 techniques.  It's on the coaching staff to get their player's heads straight.  I hope that happens...quickly.

After this game we'll be ranked 32nd in the league defensively. So, whether Luke play or not we still suck. He's no difference maker for the defense.


Nah, having the DROY, DPOY, and NFL leader in tackles makes no difference whatsoever.

#3016220 Playing for the draw

Posted by xav8tor on 12 October 2014 - 04:31 PM

Last time I checked, .583 > .500, so would you rather be 3 and 3, or 3, 2 and 1?

#2985750 Are we going to completely ignore that Kuechly hasn't been playing well?

Posted by xav8tor on 28 September 2014 - 06:11 PM

Alot of people have no issues when it's Cam being singled out. And his situation is ALOT worse than Luke's


The world is full of idiocy.  Luke can improve on pass coverage and Cam on short passes and more quickly getting rid of the ball.  They are the glimmers of hope, not the problems with this team right now.  You need to look higher up in the food chain to see where the real issues are with this team.

This thread broke the needle on my Stupidometer.


No kidding.  This threads singles him out and plenty of others rag on him too.  Let's see here: The D is missing key players, others aren't showing up (to their normal/potential anyway), and he still shoulders the role of leader.  Nevertheless, Luke was one tackle shy of being tied for first in the NFL in TT, has three PD's, a sack, and an FF, and dang close to a pick six today.  


Has the DROY then DPOY done better than he has over the past two games?  Yes.  Has he missed a few tackles?  Duh, but most guys won't miss those opportunities because they'd have never been near the ball in the first place.  Can he do better yet?  Yes, that's the scary part (for other teams), and he'll be the first to tell you that he needs to improve in certain areas.  


Get real.  Luke's play is the least of our issues right now.  In fact, it isn't an issue at all.

Despite some good play calling so far, that last series is why I am not a Shula fan.  DA is hot and our WR's are catching everything tossed their way.  Runs inside and outside are getting stuffed. What is our OC thinking…or is he thinking?

#2563438 Drive of the week (nfl.com)- Cardiac Cats

Posted by xav8tor on 23 December 2013 - 11:35 PM

Wow... the Saints player #27 blitzing got a great jump, and really kind of just missed Cam.  That last drive was just awesome.  


He didn't just miss Cam.  Watch closer, especially the view at 2:09 to 2:10.  Tolbert got a piece of 27 and shoved him out of the play.

Nice move by US Airways.  Gotta give them credit.  Whoever put that bird on that leg deserves a raise.

notice Luke pull Captain up and back on to his feet and plow holmes at the same time.  I hadnt seen that angle.





I just noticed that too.  I wish I had that as a reply gif for the thread where guys were bitchin' about Luke's pass coverage skills et al.  Seriously, how many players at ANY position, at ANY level of experience, would have made that play?  VERY few. Doesn't show up in stats either, but you can bet every guy in a film room sees it and plays it back a few times.

#2519317 Need advice from Panther fans.

Go in tonite. Then "cough cough " leave early with cold


Show up on crowd shot during game, boss watching.  Go to work next day.  Then leave early with a pink slip and an appointment with the unemployment office.

This forum is hitting the bottom of the barrel this week with many of the threads, but this thread takes the cake.  Seldom have I subjected myself to reading such lunacy.

#2469430 Ted Ginn - Difference Maker

Posted by xav8tor on 05 November 2013 - 08:22 PM

I don't underestimate Ginn's potential and I damn sure don't undervalue good intel.  Time and time again, that has been a key difference between winning and losing, and I don't just mean in football.

#2468512 Who do we root for this week?

Posted by xav8tor on 05 November 2013 - 12:04 PM

I don't mind pulling for ANY teams that make our shot at a WC berth better (just in case, you know).  Think about it.  How cool is it that so many other games actually mean something to us?  It makes Sunday/Monday/Thursday a lot more fun!

#2466234 You have all week to come to terms with this.

Posted by xav8tor on 04 November 2013 - 10:34 AM

I don't care who is playing NO.  Whoever it is, I'm rooting for them to beat the Taints senseless.

Teams are learning to pressure Cam up the middle and collapse.  49ers defense is going to be in his face constantly.


Our OC best dial up something to handle that which won't involve 5 to 7 step drops.


They are going to need to run and run effectively and no turn-overs, not one.  Every scoring opportunity is going to matter.


As the defense, Vernon and Collin all day long.  TD on Collin and Luke on Davis and everybody else will need to do their jobs.


I would think this would be a great game for Ted Ginn to make them pay for getting rid of him  on special teams. 


Hopefully Ginn can show up on a few long pass plays as well as on ST.  With his recent experience in SFO, it would also be nice if we can pump him dry for decent intel on SF.  That's helped us before.
