I was going to post it last night, but I was too depressed to hit "add reply." But, with all of the talk about how bad we want to get rid of him, I have a feeling that we're stuck with him either until the all-star break or until next offseason.
I had hope that we could work something out with the Nets for Lopez or jj because no one else wants those contracts, so it's kind of a fair deal for both sides. If that doesn't work, we're most likely stuck with him. Either way, I'm not holding my breath that something happens soon. I think we're stuck with him...
That isn't the worst thing in the world. Lance is not really the problem. He just is not a great fit, and he has played better as of late. But he shouldn't be the guy everyone points at and blames.
I watch these games and I still believe these guys can adjust and figure it out together if it comes to that. The question is can coach Clifford adjust to make it work if it comes to that?
We can't try to be a half court grind it out team if this roster stays as is. We have to get out and run and try to score before defense gets set (even on makes), kinda like the Celtics are trying to do.
ETA: If I could fire Clifford and hire George Karl right now I would do it. His style fits our current personnel better than Clifford's
I don't know nearly as much as some of you guys, but I will say that I never see Cam get plowed like he does in the pocket when hes running. Sure he gets HIT but it doesn't look nearly as bad as some of those sacks he takes.
Also for reference see Cutler get sacked on Monday's game. Just damn.
Logan was talking about when QBS scrambled they absorb what I think he referred to as an angled tackle, where they are usually falling away from the defender and absorb the hit.
Think of it like a boxer who might take a hit but is moving his head away from the punch because he sees it. It usually doesn't do much damage. The knock out punches are usually the hits he doesn't see and his head isn't moving or his head is moving into the punch.
He said in the pocket they are stationary and when they get hit their body takes more damage because the QB is stationary, whereas on a scramble he is usually moving away from the tackle.
I don't know about that. Manziel really seems Clausen and Losman level IMO. People can bash ESPN and Hoge all they want but I think he's right about Manziel. He just doesn't really bring anything to the table as an NFL QB in my opinion.
Not pertaining to you--According to this board every sports media outlet and journalist minus a few at Grantland are idiots and never right.
Last paragraph does pertain to me because I definitely fall into that category
