In Topic: So tell me

20 January 2015 - 11:29 PM

I like the I Seahawks colors.  I really like your coach.  Beast mode is incredible.  Your secondary is nasty.

 

Two things tick me off about the Hawks.

 

First, I know being prepared leads to being lucky but good lord Wilson has thrown up some prayers and they seem to get answered every time.  I really wonder if he tags one guy to be the bail out man.  When the crap really hits the fan he'll just run around for as long as possible, then throw across the opposite side of the field to his bail out man.  

 

I can understand it working some of the time but good grief.  

 

The second is the thing that really makes me rage.  That 12th man garbage.  I've heard and seen numerous times where Hawks players call out there fans for not knowing when to cheer or that it's sometimes so loud the defense can't make their calls.  

 

Last week during the Packers game the Hawks are driving the ball down the field and the crowd is cheering.  Three or four Hawks in the huddle starting doing the settle down thing with their hands because the "12th" man doesn't know when to shut the hell up.  It's that fake fan that makes me want to put my remote through the TV.

 

Also, all those fans leaving before the comeback last week.  Just too much bandwagon.

In Topic: Ravens tell Smith to take a little time out

14 January 2015 - 01:09 PM

Sounds very similar to when I was a kid and my Mom told me to go to my room and think about what you've done and then come back if you decide you can act like a big boy.

 

Or the Ravens might bring in a fresh crop of new and young receivers and wants Smith's new role to be as more of a mentor.

Process Ongoing

 

I like this from both Ron and Gettlemen.  It seems like Dave forces Ron to be more results oriented and this will force Ron to take some of the emotion out of his decisions which is really good.  I get the feeling that Dave let's his coaches coach and do their own thing but makes it very clear where the buck stops and what his expectations are.

 

Taken to the Woodshed

 

I don't see Ron being dressed down as much as I see a very open line of communication between the two men.  But like I said above there is no question on the pecking order or things and what the expectations are.  I think Dave has been and will continue to be a very good influence on Ron, especially in the business of being an executive.

 

I didn't get the feeling Ron was defending himself as much as just telling it like it is.  I always get the feeling that Ron has to refrain from being too honest and tells the simple truth as much as he can without naming any player names.  I really see what the players mean about him never being too high or low.  He's always even keel.  Sometimes people take that as being aloof or not knowing what he's doing but I think that interpretation would be a big mistake.

 

For Whom the Bell Tolls

 

Completely agree with you here.  I suspect we'll bring in one of the top 3 FA tackles.  The line is really coming together with Bell being the only obvious weak link.  Definitely going to find us a new Target/Wal-Mart tackle.

 

Need for Speed

 

Again, completely agree.  Not being able to stretch the defense or being able to go over the top really hurts our offense.  Having some real speed at the 2nd WR position as well as Philly in the slot will do wonders for our offense.  It'll further open up the run game for the RB and Cam and make Olsen an even deadlier weapon.

 

Newton

 

I love the comments about how much Cam wants to improve and get better.  With his ability and that attitude, the sky is the limit.  Like Dave said, he's our franchise QB and he'll be resigned at the going rate for a franchise QB.  And for anyone who doesn't agree with that go look at the FA list of QB's for next year and tell me which one you want.

 

Greg Hardy

 

I didn't think Dave looked upset when talking about Greg.  I thought he looked more like a person who was thrust in the middle of an problem that didn't have an answer and people are constantly asking him what the answer is.  They had their hands tied behind their back by the media, the NFL and public outcry.  There was/is no answer to the whole Hardy situation except to move on.

 

My .02.

 

I love Gettlemen and I love how the team plays for Ron.  I also think Ron really pays a ton more attention to the defense so I'm not that happy about the strong possibility of Shula hanging around.  We need an OC that gives the same attention to the offense that Ron gives to the defense.

 

I also really took away the feeling the Gettlemen is in full control and is building the team and running things his way.  There is no question who is in charge.  He'll give Ron all the rope he wants but if he keeps Shula and we don't improve then it's his ass that is gone.  So, make all your decisions wisely.
