Topics I've Started

Hardy, Florence, Bell, Olsen & Wharton can go ~

26 January 2014 - 02:13 PM

Probably not popular opinion around here - but hear me out...

 

Hardy-

Had 1/2 his sacks in 2 games.  I didnt think he 'showed up' every game.  He is good..I LOVE him..awesome personality and scratch that..very good.  I just dont think he's worth the $$ some other team is going to pay for him and I don't want us to spend it.  I also think he has been 'so' good because CJ95 has been on the other side.

 

Florence-

I haven't seen a lot of talk on this guy, I just keep seeing him blow by Kaperdick on his TD run.  I am not impressed with him at all.

 

Bell-

Not sure anything needs to be said.

 

Olsen-

Another great guy.  GREAT hands.  He has NO YAC though unless the few times Newton catches him in stride at full speed.  Too often its catch, turn butt to the goal line hugging the ball and being tackled.  Just because he's one of 2 (?) Newton's options in the passing game shouldn't have us keep him.

 

Wharton-

Another guy thats just so-so.

 

 

Anyway - these just are overrated and/or under impress.  Keep moving the bar forward and get away from mediocrity or settling.


Friggin incredible...In-laws Christmas on Sunday.

Just venting...Family > Panthers but seriously who plans family get together on our biggest game of the year??  NO way I can get out of it.  SURE- I'll be DVR'ing it but I'm going to hate going over there and 'half assing' watching the game piece meal...THEN I get to go thru the whole "dont say anything about the game" and hoping none of my friends friggin text me until I get home "God knows when" and watch it.

 

sigh.

 

 


Poor little Saints ~

"Too soon" to go over there now...

http://saintsreport.com/forums/f2/

 

Let's see, they blame on the road, Oline, Brees, Coaching, Kicker.  I saw one point where they actually gave credit to the Rams kicking their ass.

 

I honestly can't tell if I want redemption/revenge or just want to see them whine more next Sunday with a win.  I predict a close game next week, but I also think we have more tape to watch on what to do / not to do then they have on us.

 

We should do a bounty on their fans coming here...Pie for whoever trashes Alice.


Opportunity for our coaches now ~

08 December 2013 - 11:57 PM

Quite a few areas exposed tonight.  Now it is up to our coaches to create some solutions.  Quick things I saw during the game:

 

1.  Olsen can't break a tackle after the catch.

2.  Saints still dirty...they all but raped Smitty every catch.

3.  Not one sack.  Our whole game (to me) rested on pressuring Brees.

4.  Overshooting / not keeping tackle lanes.

            - We KNOW they are going to screen / flip passes...should have known anyway.

5.  Cam not running enough.  

            - I saw one designed run and it was poo.

6.  Dwill & Jstew?  Sorry...i've been fans all year and they are on my fantasy team but they cant get it done.

 

The sky isn't falling, and if I remember back before season started not many here predicted a 10-6 season.  No matter what happens our team did better then most everyone thought they would.

 

Oline has to improve.  

DB have to improve...get taller or faster or something.

Playcalling this game didnt seem to put us in a position to win.  I agree with the field goals early - that wasnt the place to go for TD imo....sure, in hindsight - but no, not then.

 

Most dissapointed in our Defense.  Not enough pressure, and worse?  I kept waiting and waiting for an interception or fumble...nothing.

 

We are still good...and one thing for certain I wouldnt want to be the Jets next week.

 


Legion of WHOM~

07 December 2013 - 11:42 AM

Listening to 'that other' sports radio 99.9 here in Raleigh and the guy asked the question "what is the single position that needs to step up for Saints game"

 

For me it's the DB...or as Gruden said "The Legion of Whom"....guys no one heard of.

 

Our DB's were suspect at the beginning of the year, then we lost Gamble.  Amazingly (?) we have done better than OK with some INT.   We have also gotten burned on the deep ball...(Wallace, Vjax).

 

Thoughts:

We beat Brady by getting pressure with our front 4.

Patriots doesn't have the WR that NO does.  We locked up Gronk we need to lock up Graham.

Seaturds have elite DB, they shut down Brees.

We have elite LB...going to have to beat NO thru our defense but counting on pressure and sacks instead of coverage.

 

What position or position group do you feel is the #1 most important piece of the puzzle Sunday night?
