#3086356 Two Words: "Nick Saban"

Posted by mwright350 on 14 November 2014 - 09:46 AM

I'm amazed that some of you guys are still discussing how good he'd be as our (or any NFL team's) coach.  Or how he was at Miami.  Or how the NFL and college games are different.


That's just not the point.  Holy crap reading comprehension man.

Ask a Dolphins fan about Saban...


He was pretty clear about not wanting / hoping / advocating Saban as our coach.  Right?  It's in the first line of his post...and what he did in Miami isn't relevant without that.  The post was fair and the point being made is valid (if maybe a little narrow considering all the things that go into a football team being good)...the quality of a coach matters.  Replacing a poor one with a good one makes a huge difference.  


Noone is denying that Saban is a douche or that he fuged the Dolphins without the benefit of a courtesy reach-around.  It's undeniable, though, that Saban is a better college coach than Shula and that he was an upgrade in Alabama.  He remains a good example of an upgrade to the coach being an immediate impact.


His merits as an NFL coach (or even a decent person) just kinda don't matter in this situation.

This thread is 78% better


79%...no...scratch that...80% better.

#2625206 Official Bring Geoff Schwartz back to Carolina Thread

I could get behind this - especially given our need to try to spend intelligently / not having a gazillion dollars to throw around making our weak points less weak.


He'd be an upgrade over what's there now.

#2614928 We have had every other blame thread so heres mine.

Posted by mwright350 on 14 January 2014 - 10:49 AM

It was my wife's fault... she didn't watch the game with me (and sleep) like she usually does...


Come to think of it... everything is her fault.


See I was just thinking it was my wife's fault because she DID sit in the room and sleep through the game with me instead of doing something else like she usually does.


There's a lot of wife blame to around here...

#2547633 Is Ron Rivera Job 100% Safe?

Posted by mwright350 on 16 December 2013 - 08:30 AM

For the first time all season I really didn't expect to see this thread.


At the *worst* we will win 10 games this year. We've had our first winning season since 2008.  We tied our franchise record for a winning streak.  All this while having a secondary with more holes than a strainer, a sub-par receiving corps, and an OL that...well...it's just our OL.


Even if we fug up and go 10-6 Rivera should get a contract extension, and I think he will.

I think it should be noted that the MANY that wanted this RISK FREE stud are no dummies, just as front office personnel aren't perfect.

Quite frankly, I hate the Colts and hope he sucks, but he was a risk free stud at a position of need, period.


Holy poo man...are you really this butt-hurt because you wanted to sign a guy and the rest of the world didn't agree with you?  You're kidding right?


Let's talk about your definition of "risk free" for just a second though.  [movie trailer announcer guy voice begins here] In a world where roster spots are limited and teams cannot keep every guy in the world on their team....every transaction has an opportunity cost and thus a risk [end movie trailer announcer guy voice]


See here's the thing. Maybe if we could just sign all the players (there's a meme for this right?) like we were Gruden at a QB buffet you have a point. But that's not how the NFL works.  The people who didn't agree with you (including our front office) made a decision that based on what they knew of [insert player name here] (I'm thinking of making this a form post...yay generics!) and decided that signing said player was not worth whatever player they thought they'd cut to keep them around.  Clearly you think the risk was worth the potential reward.  Clearly other people did not.  This is a difference of opinion, you'll never be able to prove yourself right, and you don't have nearly the volume of data that would be needed to come close.


Them's the breaks bro.  This league is full of players who we could have signed / drafted / traded for and not everyone will want all of them.  Don't let the butt-hurt be so strong.  poo's not healthy.

I read his name and I think "who the hell is this?".


To me...that is indicative of how many fugs I should give about his opinion.

#2470551 what 49er fans are saying

Posted by mwright350 on 06 November 2013 - 04:01 PM

Well his QBR is 4th in the league compared to 15th for Cam Newton. QBR account for throw aways and drops. 


FYI  both of their career completion percentage is right at 60%. Which is average


QBR is a silly stat invented by ESPN to make QBs like TinyTimmy look better than they are.


It's not worth quoting, looking at, or putting any effort into unless you're ESPN and you want to make your made-up stat look better than it is.


I'm not taking a side one way or the other on the QBs because I know I'm biased and I know poo about Kaep except he's a weird looking dude...just pointing out how awful the stat is.

Not one thing about this is OK with me.


Dude is awful.

#2468371 Week 10 power rankings

Posted by mwright350 on 05 November 2013 - 10:42 AM

take care of business vs SF next week and nobody will give a poo about the records of our opponents before that game.


Pretty much this.  Beat SF in SF to go to 5 straight and who we beat prior, no matter how badly we beat them, doesn't matter.


On the flip-side lose to SF in SF and, no matter how close we come to beating them, we're going to catch a whole lot of "see I told you you were no good!" from a lot of people.


The reality, in either case, will be somewhere in the middle.

The "You can only play who you play" mantra we're all holding onto to run off people who bitch about our strength of schedule works for KC too. 


They played who they were scheduled to play, backup QBs and all, and are undefeated.  They may be the worst team ever to start 9-0 but they *are* 9-0.  IMO that deserves top of the list...or at the very least higher than 6.

Why not.  I'm not going I might as well spend some money to help send someone else!

#2459479 Newton/Dalton taking back the spotlight

Posted by mwright350 on 31 October 2013 - 11:32 PM

Wow, Dalton didn't do himself any favors tonight...  That was pathetic.  You cannot let a game end by you getting mollywopped on a safety. 


Mollywopped is my new favorite word...

#2455950 Was Losing Godfrey The Biggest Step In Turning The Defense Around?

Posted by mwright350 on 29 October 2013 - 01:38 PM

Before we lost him I would have never agreed with the idea.


Seeing how our defense has played this year after being sure that our secondary was going to cost us basically every game?  I think losing that entrenched starter and allowing the coaches to play around with the secondary to find the best group of players has been a welcome surprise.


We certainly don't have an all-world secondary but they've getting the job done more than they're not and it'd be hard to argue that Godfrey's departure didn't help that along.
