In Topic: We SHOULD win the NFC South

Seattle has the worst ever record making the play off at 7-9. So question is, can we make it with 6-9-1 :-)

In Topic: Clinton Portis on WFNZ yesterday....

Tagging him would be pointless. If it comes to that, just let him leave and get a decent compensatory draft pick in return. Forcing a franchise QB to stay when he doesn't want to is a recipe for an awful season.


Why is it pointless?

Can will still want a huge pay day. And signing a tag just to play awful is not a recipe to get it anywhere.

His choice is really a $17M tag or some $70M guaranteed and probably just as much non guaranteed.

He stays.

In Topic: Ron Rivera is still terrible at clock management

Also Ron Ron is not so good at the challenges.
I was listening on sat radio and it seemed the spot of the ball or something like that was not in question and meathead throws the red flag anyway.


It was fourth down, to much to win to not make that challenge, even if you have just a little hope to win.

In Topic: Ron Rivera is still terrible at clock management

Terrible clock management is a recurring theme in Rivera's tenure.

Right before halftime the Panthers are down 21-0 with three timeouts. They started the drive with about two minutes left at about their own 20. Shula calls two early running plays and the Panthers burn through two timeouts.

Eventually Kelvin Benjamin makes a great catch in the redzone with :38 seconds left. The Panthers had one timeout remaining. Rivera choses to not call the timeout, and by the time the next play is run the clock is all the way down to :12, which greatly limits your chances to score a TD.

Rivera HAD to call the timeout after KB's catch. No excuse not to. This is fugging basic football 101 knowledge you get from playing a freaking video game. Call the timeout and you have :38 seconds from the redzone. Plenty of plays you can run there.

It's incomprehensible to me how Rivera doesn't understand basic clock management and probably never will.


Ronmanaged the clock perfectly in this situation because he secured points on the board. Sadly we need that timeout because we cannot trust Cam not to get sacked so we end up with nothing.

Theat might not be a choice that you like, especially down 21 I agree with should have gambled for the 7.

So the issue was the choice, not the execution.

In Topic: Colin Jones Ran a 4.3? Huh?

21 October 2014 - 01:15 AM

I love Jones's speed but the fact is he missed a lot of tackles in the preseason. Being a gunner is your first priority is to cut off the angles before the returner picks up speed, if you make the tackles or someone else because the extra time you staled the returner is secondary.

At safety the runner already has full speed coming towards you so gunner skills does not have to translate into good safety tackling skills.
