In Topic: Has any player talked up by Riverboat worked out well for us?

Cool let's keep hoping Armati takes that training camp all star trophy to success. .

 

Armanti is cut. Nakamura is cut. Cason is cut. Frank is an unknown for now.

 

We make our changes when we can. While those guys are around we don't want to tear them apart.

I thought we didn't want our coach to throw our players under the bus and bad mouth them to the media? Is he not allowed to do the opposite either? We want to encourage players to do their best, where's the incentive if they read headlines and quotes from their coach saying, 'nah he's not really starter material, we only brought him in to be on the bench and spur the other guys on.'

He was talking about Cam getting an extension recently... what a fool.


In Topic: Gettleman on Sirius NFL Radio 3/24/2015

hearing him talk about Oher gets me excited. i really hope he bounces back here. 

 

no doubt our coaching staff and locker room is strong, look at how hampered we've been the past few years and how we've managed to compete despite it. we've been winning the South with one hand tied behind our back and standing toe to toe with Seattle and other top teams. the determination is here and the winning culture, never say die attitude is here, wait til this team gets unleashed in the next few years.


In Topic: Hardy negotiating with Seattle/Tampa/Dallas

17 March 2015 - 12:25 PM

The annoying thing about a thread like this is we have so many people who always have a grass is greener mentality and think everything we do is a bad move that deserves harsh scrutiny on here. As if every team were in our exact situation and all Gettleman should do is follow what the others would do. It has been stated millions of times why Hardy is not going to be back with this team, we have a legitimate reason for moving on. Even before this he didn't seem to be in the team's long term plans. If our team really thought he was the future for us, we'd have found a way to make it work. If we were scared to ever play against Hardy we'd find a way to keep him. There's only so much you can do to keep a player and we can't afford another franchise tag year on Hardy. 

 

Seattle is a great team but adding Hardy or Jimmy Graham doesn't make them invincible. Dallas has done a great job drafting lately and is making good moves. The Bucs have so many pieces without a QB, if they draft a winner this year then we'll have to consider them as challengers to the throne, be they're still a step behind us. Greg going to any of these teams doesn't mean we'll automatically lose to them next year.

 

Contrary to the belief of many, we are able to recover from this. We've already recovered from Greg leaving last season. We draft very well now and we have great coaches to bring our young players along quickly. Lets get this compensation pick and get another DE with it.

 

Don't be afraid of being a team who can reload without missing a beat, it's who we are being built to become.
