#3053560 Rivera: " couldn't find a left tackle to fit what we do"?

Posted by unicar15 on 29 October 2014 - 05:13 PM

DG told you it was going to be ugly for at least 2 seasons.

Do you take him as a liar?

This is the point that needs to be taken from every convo about personnel. Gameplan is a different story but personnel problems of this squad are due to one guy...Marty Hurney.

80 million is not a small price tag for a bunch of mediocre running backs who can't stay healthy. That's the cost for a franchise left tackle and Hurney just made terrible decisions.

#3047197 Troubling comment from Rivera

Posted by unicar15 on 26 October 2014 - 08:33 PM

He likely said that bc he didn't want to just completely throw Shula under the bus. Rivera is not an offensive coach which is even more of a reason that we need a stronger offensive coordinator. He isn't going to add much to that aspect of the gameplan.

Truthfully, I look for Rivera to make decisions having to do with game management more than I look for him to devise an offensive gameplan. Nobody is expecting Sean Payton to have a say in the defense when the Saints play. I see it the same way for Rivera. This is on Shula, Dorsey, and Cam as of now.

#3046139 Gettledog's plan

Posted by unicar15 on 26 October 2014 - 04:26 PM

If we continue to lose and miss the playoffs then IMO DG does several things:

1. Shula is gone. He'll bring in a different coordinator to see if Cam is able to succeed in a different system that he decides will benefit Cam and test him at the same time. If cam flourishes as would be the hope...Cam stays and gets a big deal.

2. He'll draft a QB early in case Cam bolts (assuming no new contract before the draft...which is the expectation). This will also put pressure on Cam to step up and be a winner as well as allow whoever he drafts to learn from the new OC who will have an offense DG approves of.

3. Draft weapons and bring in talented OL for Cam. This roster sucks. Outside of a talented TE, WR and center the offense is garbage.

Bottom line is that he's going to give Cam every chance to earn that cash but at the end of the day it's going to fall on Cam bc the guys holding him back (Shula, sucky OL) will be gone long before any contract talk is made.

#3044899 can we please fire this whole coaching staff

Posted by unicar15 on 26 October 2014 - 02:53 PM

Shula has to go...defense stepped up today but Shula had three possessions in freakin redzone and called ONE play into the endzone...that was successful if not for a drop by KB. Idk why the hell we have reverted back to a primary read option team since cam got healthy but it is killing his progression.

He has regressed since he got healthy and that is squarely on Shula. There is no reason he should have a job on Monday.

#3036868 The Seattle Seahawks’ Big Problem

Posted by unicar15 on 22 October 2014 - 10:22 AM

A lot of us are pointing to Hardy's absence on the DL, but don't forget that Frank Alexander is also missing from the rotation. Who knows what the problem is, but we also had a very nice/deep rotation on the DL as a whole last year. Doesn't look to be the case this year. This article has made me think a little bit. Although we're not Seattle we had a lot in common with them last year as far as our front 7.

Alexander and Hardy would have been our two best rushers. Firmly believe that...it's killing this D to not have them.

#3032664 Telling stat

Posted by unicar15 on 20 October 2014 - 09:35 AM

It is, and the lack of improvement is what scares me about this coaching staff

Truthfully I'm not surprised. Let's think about this...we have ONE starter on the OL playing the same position as last year, probably the worst two offensive tackles in the league, journeymen LG, and a rookie RG playing alongside one of those tackles.

Not to mention they are blocking for running backs that NOBODY is scared of making a big play. I'm shocked this offense has put up as many points as they have.

#3028501 the official "ron fuging sucks" thread

Posted by unicar15 on 19 October 2014 - 01:20 PM

The guy won last year when we had talent. We literally don't have a single player on the OL or secondary that another team would start with the exception being Ryan Kalil. You can win with a couple of those guys on your team. You can't win with half a squad of them.

We moved a crap RT to LT and converted a DL to OL and expect him to play RT at a high level.

We pick up three guys who got cut (bc they are old and suck) in Decoud, Harper, and Cason.

We try to convert an overpaid safety who is coming off an Achilles injury to nickel corner.

Melvin White...an upstart who played well situationally is counted on as our best DB.

And there is the often undervalued situation that is our DL situation which is missing our two best pass rushers (yes I believe Alexander would have been as good or better than CJ). Which is only compounded by the fact that 13 mil of our cap is going to a guy who has played one game.

This is the least talented team in the NFL right now and the only reason we are 3-2-1 is that our QB and LBs are superstars.

#3027395 Is this the worst secondary in NFL history?

Posted by unicar15 on 19 October 2014 - 12:28 PM

We lost some good players this offseason. I was wrong as I thought Rivera's D could plug and play almost anyone. Cason, Harper, Decoud, Godfrey in particular are absolutely terrible.

Looks like another roster overhaul this offseason.

#3027095 Is this the worst secondary in NFL history?

Posted by unicar15 on 19 October 2014 - 12:12 PM

They are Undisciplined and heartless..hope none are on the team next year. Harper sucks and always has..

#2995047 LOL

Posted by unicar15 on 02 October 2014 - 08:43 PM

If we cut CJ we gave to keep hardy

Or sign other players...there is this novel concept called free agency. If your players are cut and aren't worth resigning then find someone else who will do the job.

Truthfully I'm not giving Greg Hardy a 70-80 million dollar contract after the poo he pulled. It's bad for the team and he's a complete waste of money. If I'm DG I'm focusing on developing the guys I have (Addison, KK, Star, Horton, Ealy) and spending that money on putting together a good offensive line and more weapons for Cam.

This defense is going to have to be rebuilt next year bc I can almost guarantee you JR isn't paying Hardy and CJ will be cut if he doesn't resign a VERY cap friendly deal. The future of this D is Luke, KK, Star. Hopefully we can find someone to rush the passer in the draft bc I think we are going to have to break the bank for some offensive linemen.

#2989343 A No Call That Bothers Me. WTF Refs

Posted by unicar15 on 29 September 2014 - 07:29 PM

Because he's big and physical. If that's Peyton or Brady it's a penalty every time. His size hurts him in that way...he takes way more uncalled hits than other QBs.

#2984956 Shula lead Panthers now 0-6 when opposing team scores more than 20 points

Posted by unicar15 on 28 September 2014 - 04:01 PM

Cam's running and an elite D have hidden Shula's inadequacy as a play caller. Personally, I don't think he makes it past this year. You have to adapt to personnel and with a terrible OL and zero running game he still continues to call plays that take forever to develop.

#2977501 Should we sit Cam?

Posted by unicar15 on 25 September 2014 - 10:24 AM

Id sit cam for the next three games...Baltimore, Chicago, Cincy. We'd most likely be 2-4 without him after those games. But if he is completely healthy after that then there's no reason we couldn't win 8 of our last 10 games like we did last year.

I also wouldn't put it past our defense and DA leading us to a win against the Bears at home.

The problem with playing Cam in this game against the Ravens would be:

1. A good shot from Ngata and he really could finish off that rib. Not unlikely given the struggles of our OL and Cams inability to scramble.

2. Davis probably isn't playing in this game...our defense is going to be a different unit without him. I don't give us a great shot of going INTO Baltimore without Davis and holding down their offense. He's too integral for what we do.

3. It's an OOC game. If you're gonna lose a game then these are the games you lose. They count less toward making the playoffs in the event of a tie. We have two of these over our next 3 games. There really is no better time for Cam to get healthy.

4. The Saints are 1-2 and at best can only tie our record this week. I'm not scared of the Falcons. I think when our D is healthy we can at least split with them.

5. Cam is not nearly as effective when he doesn't use his legs. The coaches are boxing us in by trying to protect him and not calling option plays. Teams know he doesn't want to run. It's putting him and the OL in positions of weakness bc the read option is so much of what we do.

6. Our OL is freaking terrible. Between the OL and the ST last week you couldn't have done anything differently as a QB and defense to win the game. Cam or DA..wouldn't have mattered with those two units screwing the pooch the way they did. I think our OL will have the same struggles this week. So why risk the rest of the season when cam isn't going to be enough to win this game anyways?

#2957247 PFT: NFL may suspend Hardy

Posted by unicar15 on 16 September 2014 - 09:04 AM

Hardy put himself in a bad situation but at this point it's "he said she said." The primary witness for the prosecution it sounds like is someone making a phone call from a different unit. Holder didn't go to the hospital immediately following the incident and there are no injuries on file (again just what I heard). That said...if the NFL suspends Hardy for something based on ESPN outcry and he is found not guilty by a jury he is going to have a mega lawsuit against them and ESPN for defamation among other things...

ESPN IMO has done a piss poor job of covering both sides of this story. But then again...if you did that you just wouldn't have as juicy a story. I have no clue if Hardy committed a crime or not...that is what is supposed to be determined during a trial. Seems like that is something that society has basically thrown to the side in certain issues.

#2795882 Hurney on ESPN Insiders now

Posted by unicar15 on 21 May 2014 - 03:12 PM

"See, in this league, you need running backs. Lots of them. Make sure you pay them outrageous contracts so your team can be in cap hell for at least four years."

The hilarious thing about this is that Hurney did this...signed in excess, huge contract RBs at a time where 99% of the rest of the league realized RBs were becoming obsolete and dime a dozen. It is the clearest illustration of his incompetence as a team-builder.
