TO be honest, I agree. I said it a lot last season that our secondary was average at best and the strong front 7 made them look better than what they were. As far as Ginn, I saw a potential that I liked but would not have been willing to pay him anywhere near what he got from the Card's. Love captain, but Zod is right he blew coverage a lot.
Fans have to remember one thing. When Gettleman cam in we were about $16mil over the Cap and were are still hurting from the Cap. we still have players like Greg, Cam, Luke, Star, Kawann whoes contracts need the $$ to sign in the future. Right now we are going to have issues just giving Cam his 5th year extension let alone resigning him by the nest season. Look to see players such as Dwill and Stewart either being cut, traded or released next off season to try and free up more cap space.
Um we are not paying Gross anything. His contract was up as of this year. Either we resigned him or he retired or signed with another team. But we are not paying gross money for a contract that he voided the final year.
I would consider Nicks if the money is right. Other than that those guys aren't worth much. In my opinion James Jones and Eric Decker are a product of their QB. They will get paid but their numbers will go down. I would resign Donald Lafell if the money is right and draft a future number 1.
Cant say that about Decker. He was doing as good before Manning.
When we went to 4-10, I said thats the end of the drive and maybe the game. I walked out of the room to the kitchen to pull my home made hot wings out. Now a note, I left the game on. so I could hear what is going on. Just in case maybe a fumble or a good play on Special teams for us.
I start to pull out the wings from the oven ( i bake them and no longer fry them. Healthier and to me and friends they takes even better) I hear from the TV Steve Smith is still on his feet and still going. I dman near drop all of the wings and run back into the living room. Not knowing what just took place (in my mind NO WAY DID RR GO FOR IT ON 4-10 on our own 20) I hit rewind on the remote. I was amazed what just happened.
I criticized Smitty about 3 weeks ago with several key drops and wondered if hes losing his touch. Since then he seems to be back in rare form.
OH and a side note, I'm now on diarrhea detail. I put the wings down on kitchen table and not the counter. We have 7 dogs and 3 of them ate the damn wings!
Rams are 2-0 without finnegan who if you watched play this year was who every team targeted. As well as our new RB stacy who has also led to us being 2-0 in his 2 starts and Bradford is statistically in the top 10 in QBs this season with only 3 picks and 13 TD's (1 behind brees) a QB rating of 90...
Lets actually compare Newton and Bradford for a minute shall we.....
TD's Bradford = 13 Newton = 9
Int Bradford = 3 Newton = 5
Yards Bradford = 1432 Newton = 1127
Completion % Bradford = 59.8 Newton = 60.2
QB Rating Bradford = 90.7 Newton = 89.4
Sacked Bradford = 13 Newton = 16
So please o please tell me how Cam has been so much better this year? (less games and less attempts, yet more interceptions and sacks?
Um how is your run game going over there? When you have a team with a good run game, your QB's passing yards will be less compared to a team that has no run game and has to pass the ball alot to even have a chance to win games. Now add Cams running yards and running TD's....
