In Topic: Can we ever become a great team with Rivera at the helm

Yesterday, 09:58 PM

Not to compare Cam to Michael Jordan, but I've long thought that Rivera was our Doug Collins. A good coach but not a great one, that could win but would never get over the hump, and that in order to get the most out of Cam, we have to find his Phil Jackson.

P.s. I'm not going to lie, I thought that guy could have been Chip Kelly before the Eagles hired him.

I really really hope that the signing DeCoud and Harper has at least some benefit when we get to the division games between Atlanta and New Orleans.

I expect to win at least three of the fours games because their intel and familiarity. If we don't then those signings go from bad to horrible in my book.

In Topic: The Traditional QB Still Rules the League

Yesterday, 12:03 AM

So we have Peyton Manning, perhaps the best QB ever, Aaron Rogers, perhaps the best QB currently, and Andrew Luck, perhaps the best QB of the future, and because Cam may or may not reach that level of play we should trade him?

People seem to have no idea how hard it is to hit on a quarterback. We could trade Cam for all these picks and end up drafting the next Tim Couch at quarterback, and then what?

I hope and believe that Cam will end up being a top five quarterback in the league, but if he doesn't we can still win, and win consistently.

Anyone else think the Lions look like us from last year?


Yup, Stafford is a little more interception prone, but yup.

In Topic: Is this the least Talented Defensive Unit in the NFL?

I think it might be scheme based. There comes a time when the same ol cover 2 no longer works.

I've also noticed it in Tampa. Lovie's tampa 2 is getting picked apart.

Maybe offenses just know how to beat it?

Problem when we run man we get beat as well because we don't have the talent to run it.

I think we play a lot cover 3 as well. Which is a scheme that protects against deep routes, but it's weakness is intermediate sidelines and short passes.

The thing is, it's not really long plays that are beating us (in the passing game) I think the one to Nelson today was the longest of the year. Teams are marching down the field on us, and it's not just Rogers, it's Flaco and Dalton and Big Ben and Cutler. Not to mention Stafford looked pretty good too its just that the Lions self destructed like they always do.

I just have a hard time believing it's the players, not when you get beat like this over and over. It has to be scheme. To go from #2 defense to #32, that has to be a scheme issue right? Maybe I play too much madden.
