Thoughts from the day after~

02 February 2015 - 08:36 PM

Random thoughts..

 

Al Michaels (?) seemed to think Sherman was calling out #24 of the defense- I missed the cut to Sherman...was he calling him out or just that they now had 24 points?

 

Lots of talk on the poor play call.  Seems that going for in with 6 seconds left was more of a gutsy/dumb move but since they made it no one talks about it.  Maybe it was a 'dumb' call but thats Seahawks football and it has worked for them.

 

Are the penalty's for players escalative in nature?  How long does Marshawn get to behave like a 12 yr old?

 

Do we think the Wilson slurpfest is now over or will we be subjected to more years of it....?
 

 


I wish I could hate Seattle ~

Truth is I like them.  I think they have awesome fans - at least from 2012(!).  I like their coach.  I like Wilson - tough guy with lots of character - I like how he says 'Go Hawks' at the end of every interview.

 

Lynch is OK - just when I wish the media would leave the man alone though he does something stupid like grabbing his junk.

 

Sherman though - he's the one guy I can't stand.  Every since that post game interview all I see is a thug.

 

I don't hate Seattle - but I hope that either the Packers or the Cowboys beat them.  I hope that i don't have to listen to another Seattle slurpfest by the announcers as well.

Still in for Rivera~

19 November 2014 - 07:16 PM

I realize that I am no doubt in the minority for still believing in this coach.  I won't even say I am the 'silent majority'...but I believe in Ron.

 

Here is why:

I don't know if the play calling is his fault or Shula.  It seems to me that this is a critical area that needs to be better addressed.

Alot (everyone?) has jumped on him for his handling of playing for a field goal.  I will watch the game again - but what I saw was:

            A kicker that hasnt missed under 50 yards.  Close to automatic as you get.  Why NOT trust your kicker?

            As Cam says...hindsight is 50-50...   :)   Anyway...I didnt mind the play calling.  I think he would have been flambeyyed (s?) if they threw a pass and it was intercepted.

 

I remember last year.  Very well.  Many fans (right here) wasnt happy with Ron and the same old witch hunt was on until they started winning.  I refuse to believe he is not the same guy.

 

Consider- consider what we all know.  Handcuffed by the cap, poor play, injuries, and a thug getting paid doing nothing for you..how would any of us play the hand dealt to Ron?

 

I am all about the blame game and wow -there is alot to go around.  Oline, Shula...Gettleman to an extent (misfires on who he brought in this time...)...Cam (love him....but he hasnt been the same this year...Shula's fault?)

 

Anyway- I don't want Ron's head.  I think he can lead us to where we all want to go.

 

(nerd alert...this makes me want to say "I believe in Harvey Dent".../shrug).

Rough Meltdown ~

28 September 2014 - 05:06 PM

Was hard to watch this game.  My own thoughts (post rage).

 

1.  Defenders seem afraid to tackle / wait for someone else to make the tackle.  There is no 'hunger' to destroy who has the ball.

2.  No rush at the QB.  Hardy isn't here - next man up.  We need to put pressure on the QB.

3.  Annoyed at the coaches.  If I am sitting here knowing that they are gonna get the ball to Smith, and I also know they are going to run the ball because of last week's fiasco - why not have a game plan ready for this?   Double up Smith and load the box.

                Of course that doesn't matter too much because we seemingly forgot how to tackle.

4.  Cam not running.  Two games now where he is sitting in the pocket.  On the one hand it's awesome, but part of what makes him dangerous is his ability to run.  FREE CAM

5.  Kelvintron is obviously a machine...keep feeding him.  Cotchery balled.

6. Our hog molly's on both sides of the game have been embarrassed now 2 games in a row.  Where are their balls?  Start smashing pukes in the mouth already.

 

Extremely happy for Steve Smith.  I wanted him to catch 4 TD in a losing effort - I hate they won but happy for the best Panther of all time.

 

Gettleman needs to get to work.  He is known for making the calls no one else wants to - start cutting the perrennial injured bastages and bring in people that want to play.
