oh yes, an integral part of the all-world 2nd round hurneymagic team
traded for Armanti Edwards
That is pretty terrible, but at least there are a few decent picks in there, but the only one that has outplayed 2nd round status is Ryan Kalil. Foster and Marshall we're probably worthy of 2nd round picks. The rest are garbage.
Olson mic up showed us that. Both Stewart and Dwill could of cared less. Stewart looked like he wanted to be back on his exercise bike.
At least Stewart was running his ass off. I don't doubt that D-Will was trying his hardest too, but things just weren't working for him other than that one screen play. We've rehashed about a million times how these guys aren't worth their contracts, but one thing I've never doubted is their heart.
With Brees, that's an exception. With Newton, it's every play.
No. No it just isn't. The protection was very good tonight through the first half. Cam making poor passes combined with Shula's inexplicable playcalling and a couple dropped balls stalled all of our drives.
The protection is bad and has cost us in a lot of games. Tonight that was not the case. Cam is in a funk and needs to break out of it. But I think it may be too late for our season.
I think Rivera is losing you. How his decisions affect you personally don't translate into the locker room.
The common denominators in all the games we have had poor showings in: The 3-4.
Which says to me that at the very least, Shula is incompetent against the 3-4. Which I think is an inexcusable weakness in an NFL offensive coordinator.
I know it's not as simple as pinning it all on Shula - the players have to execute. But when the entire offense fails to function against all three 3-4 defenses we have faced, the head man has to be held responsible in some way.
No. Rucker only does our preseason games, and I definitely remember the Rosario Dawson incident was when Dante Rosario caught the last second game winner against San Diego to open the season in...I think 2008?
Can we stop with all the receiver talk? Could they be better? Sure. Are they the top issue on this team? Not even close. We need to fix the Secondary, the OLine, and the RBs before we even need to think about addressing the WR "issue".
Yeah, Cotchery dropped a game winning TD pass. It was tipped by the defender right before it got to his hands, but he should have caught it anyways. He didn't. It happens. Move on.
Just sayin all this Roy nonsense means squat to the Panthers unless they parlay those guys into a team to be reckoned with game in and out. We got fuggin beat like a drum on Sunday.
That is very true, but if you take a moment and look at the rest of our roster, with few exceptions (Kalil, Olsen, Davis), it's a veritable who's who of UDFAs, Bargain-bin FA signings, and overpaid veterans past their prime. The first problem will be fixed by the better drafting of Gettleman going forward, and the second and third will be fixed in tandem. As our overpaid veterans get cut and/or have their contracts expire, we'll have more money to sign one or two key free agents per season. Yes, even with Cam and Luke's contracts coming up.
If we're able to be a good team in the meantime, that's gravy. I think we are capable of that, but these last couple weeks have definitely been a setback. Injuries and loss of focus wreaking havoc. But regardless, this team will keep improving over the next several years as our young stars continue to mature.
