#2956597 Watching the Colts Eagles game

Posted by amcoolio on 15 September 2014 - 10:26 PM

The Eagles stole Sproles. He would have been great here with Tolbert and Williams. Should have pretended Stewart didn't exist regardless of his contract and swallowed that pill

Posted by amcoolio on 13 March 2014 - 05:22 PM

It sucks, but we are so laden with dead money and bad contracts there is nothing we can do about it but purge for a few seasons and draft well so that we can resign cam, luke, hardy, star, and other homegrown talent 

 

Blame Hurney for causing our RB position to be tied up with 15 million+ in cap room for two RB's not currently in the top 25 in the league. And Beason's 9 million and he isn't even on the team. 




#2612416 Something upsetting about next season...no running game

Posted by amcoolio on 13 January 2014 - 09:55 AM

There's nothing we can do about Stewart. We are stuck with him for a while.

 

Deangelo's about as good as BenJarvis Green-Ellis. I like the guy but he isn't worth his price tag. There are more efficent runners playing for playoff teams on very little contracts. 

 

Both our RB's are getting Peterson/Lynch/Foster money with half the ability, and it's killing our money towards our WR's and DB's.




#2611601 Final Thoughts

Posted by amcoolio on 12 January 2014 - 10:58 PM

I don't think the future is that bright. We are cap strapped and laden with big price contracts for older players, will likely lose mainstays like Gross, Williams, and Hardy, and our only way to really improve (which we need to) is by hitting multiple home runs in the draft and pulling off a big trade. Tampa Bay is going to be a lot better by default with their new coach, Atlanta will likely address their defense and New Orleans will still be strong. A lot of the NFC will get much better, particularly our 2014 opponents, save for Seattle which is in our situation and will lose a chunk of their players as well.

 

That's what makes this loss particularly painful. Its highly unlikely we'd be a bye again next year, and probably not likely we'll be in the playoffs. We had our opportunity and we killed ourselves, because SF wasn't a better team.

 

I'd also like to point out that it appeared we had the same exact game plan on defense and didn't change a thing. What the hell were they doing the past two weeks. At least every single player on defense was not prepared or out of position on a specific key play. If they had been able to stop a mediocre-to-bad offense, it would have given our mediocre offense a few more possessions to make something happen. What did Andy Lee only punt two times? Ridiculous




#2574750 Analyzing our Potential Matchups

Posted by amcoolio on 30 December 2013 - 01:53 AM

You guys are insane. Its obvious we want SF and New Orleans to win so SF will have to play a 10AM cross country playoff game. We stop the run, there is no chance SF can beat us at home at 10AM.

 

Want no part of GB. They are very well balanced on offense and could put up 30 depsite our defense.

 

Philly would probably be too green and can be stopped with our D. Also we can put up points on them




#2519530 Not giving up on HFA = rooting for taints?

Posted by amcoolio on 30 November 2013 - 09:16 PM

Its highly improbable that we'd be able to get the #1 seed at this point. Even if we finish 13-3, Seattle would have to go 2-3 in its final 5 games, and they are 10-1. Do you really expect them to do that.

 

Winning the division would be gravy right now because its a 1st round bye and a game at home. If we don't win the division, we have road games against N.O. and Seattle in the playoffs if we are lucky enough to get by in the 1st round against NFCN winner (Lions have enough pieces to beat us in a game, Chicago and GB do not)




#2474797 NFC Teams you are afraid of?

Posted by amcoolio on 10 November 2013 - 03:35 AM

You guys sure are optimistic about San Fran. They are like Carolina but with upgraded offensive line, pass rush, and coaching

 

I'd be thrilled to keep it in single digits




#2465870 Early Vegas Line CAR @ SF

Posted by amcoolio on 04 November 2013 - 02:53 AM

I love the Panthers but i'd be shocked if we come within a touchdown. This is a bad matchup for us, and San Fran is putting people away in the first half lately whereas we can only turn it on after halftime. I think it will be a 23-10 type game




#2406723 josh Freeman released..Bucs free fall continues...

Posted by amcoolio on 03 October 2013 - 02:24 PM

I would pull the trigger then. Freeman gets a chance to get back at that stupid franchise, pushes Cam in camp, can run the offense in the unfathomable chance that Cam gets hurt and he seems like a likable guy anyways




#2379591 Looks like we're facing the 0-2 Giants next week

Posted by amcoolio on 15 September 2013 - 06:19 PM

The spread can be Panthers +11.5 and I'd still bet on the Giants, we are going to get our asses kicked. Manning might throw for 600 yards




#2379507 Tampa wins and we're only 1 game back.

Posted by amcoolio on 15 September 2013 - 06:11 PM

With both our safeties out for a long time I don't see how we come within 20 of the Giants.

 

This season is over. It came and went that quickly




#2379120 Game Grades - Panthers at Bills

Posted by amcoolio on 15 September 2013 - 04:38 PM

I thought Cam was really bad. But then again or right side of the O-line was really bad as well. But Cam just doesn't look like a good QB right now, regardless of O-line. He is staring down receivers repeatedly, extremely late on throwing the ball, and overthrowing by a wide margin when he does throw it early. He needs to quit worrying about the possible interception and make a damned decision with the ball when its in his hands. There are several examples recently of QB's with horrific O-lines who are still effective because they get the ball out and make quick decisions.




#2365724 Watching other games today

Posted by amcoolio on 08 September 2013 - 11:08 PM

I don't get how teams not known for passing, like San Fran today, Miami, and others I watched on league pass, can make running quick slats for 7-10 yards look so easy and common, whereas for Carolina it is a rarity and damn near impossible. Either Cam really cannot throw the intermediate pass and we threw it out of the playbook, or Rivera/Shula/Gettleman are stuck in the 1800's, doesn't watch other NFL games and see how to take a QB like Colin Kaepernick and put up 34 points with a similar supporting cast

 

How do you not even take a shot down field with Ginn or Edwards, at least once. Wasn't Cam one of the best deep ball throwers his first two seasons?

 

This season has 7-9 written all over it. In this NFL you have to be able to put points in the board, first and foremost. The Saints may have a much, much shittier D than our awesome front 7, but they have a much better chance at the playoffs because they can score when they need to. Just another depressing season

Posted by amcoolio on 25 August 2013 - 03:38 AM

Who are we going to trade for a OL that would make an impact. Our 1st rounder? Greg Hardy? Star? Olsen?

 

We aren't exactly swimming in trade assets. This isn't the NBA




#2338210 Cam and his accuracy issues.

Posted by amcoolio on 25 August 2013 - 12:50 AM

He's missed at least 5 wide open receivers this preseason, some of them simple throws.

 

Its concerning. He needs to be nailing these throws in his 3rd season...hopefully he comes out of it like his rookie year preseason
