#3095811 Jason Avant Cut

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 November 2014 - 03:09 PM

That's just your opinion and interpretation. I see it as the final straw for an older, stopgap player who wasn't producing and an opportunity to give younger guys some reps so we know better how to address the WR position in the offseason. I mean....it's a strong possibility that we didn't go after more FA WRs because we thought King and McNutt could do something. They never had game time to show one way or another. Avant wasn't going to be here more than two years anyway....and that's if he was producing. 

 

I don't think they ever actually believed in King and McNutt that much.

 

Per Voth, they knew early on that they weren't going to be able to pay what the best receivers wanted, so they'd have to go with role players.  And that approach is fine, if you use them like role players.

 

They didn't.

Do you think the coaches moving Godfrey from S to N was using him correctly? I don't. Regardless, Godfrey was bad at his job of being a N. 

 

There was no way to use Godfrey correctly.  He legitimately sucked.

 

With Avant, you had possibilities.  But instead, they tried to turn him into something he wasn't.

Which, honestly, is pretty much the kind of thing I'd expect Thomas Davis to say.

 

You're not gonna get criticism out of TD.

Shula won't be forced to do anything because Shula doesn't call plays depending on the roster. He calls the same plays regardless of situation, opponent, WRs, o-line, or any other circumstance with no adjustment whatsoever.

 

Which is how you wind up with Jerricho Cotchery on a deep route or Jason Avant on a reverse.

When he couldn't keep a spot with the Jets, that should have told you guys all you needed to know.

 

I've been as doubtful of Hill as anyone.

 

But with that said, I sincerely question whether or not this staff has the talent evaluation skills to know whether he's any good or not.

WWBBD ???

 

What would Bill Belichick do???

 

You think he would put up with criticism of him or his staff from an unproductive receiver ???

 

It is seriously not a question of whether Avant was right or wrong...Pro's keep dissension in house...they don't broadcast it for the world to see.

 

Bill Belichick has a winning record and reputation to fall back on.

 

What does Rivera have?

At a recent doctor visit, I got the standard question "Have you been depressed about anything lately?"

 

I responded "I'm a Panthers fan" :(

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 November 2014 - 02:21 PM

It wouldnt be so bad if any of them had the balls to man up and make changes to look for a spark but nah lets jus ride with the same team that has lost every game since the beginning of october. Fuggin idiots man. And its really pissing me off gman is silent in all this, he is a part of this too so why does his fat ass get to hide and let ron and cam take all the blame when he fielded this piece of poo squad.

 

Right now it looks like this bunch would rather mush on than admit to a mistake.

 

They want us to believe it's the players' at fault.  Not the coaches.

If he ever actually spoke his mind, probably Greg Olsen.




#3095614 Coaching Failure: Avant was misused

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 November 2014 - 02:15 PM

And let's talk about Philly Brown (as mentioned elsewhere).

 

Yes I know he was injured at one point, but after his performance in that early game, how could anyone not see what he was capable of doing?

 

I came out of that game expecting him to have a much bigger role in future games.  But then even when he did get healthy, the one true deep threat the team had stayed primarily a return man while the coaches had Newton throwing deep balls and flea flickers and running reverses to possession receivers.

 

They just do not know what they are doing.

It also looks desperate, which is probably an accurate description of our coach at this point. 

 

Doesn't change my opinion that its probably a good long term move for the team.  Especially if Rivera is not here next year, which is a definite possibility at this point. 

 

I think Rivera has to go at this point.

NFL teams indicating today with cutting of Jason Avant and Ben Tate that if you have the wrong attitude, you can look for work elsewhere.

 

Jason Avant having "the wrong attitude"...

 

Unbelievable :wacko:

 

He was signed here in the first place in large part because of his attitude and leadership.




#3095508 Coaching Failure: Avant was misused

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 November 2014 - 01:50 PM

You think he was misused? There is no way he went deep that much... they were too busy using him on end-arounds and option plays... lol mike shula. what a joke. 

 

Those were dumb too.
