#2985979 Calm down people, Atlanta lost

Posted by rayzor on 28 September 2014 - 06:53 PM

as long as the other teams suck more we still have a chance. great. i'm not sure i like the idea of being the turd that floated to the top of a weak division, but hey...it worked for the colts, pats, and broncos...why not?

#2985886 How many of you felt this way today?

Posted by rayzor on 28 September 2014 - 06:40 PM

he's a traitor.

#2985870 Is there any chance at all that Shula will be fired soon?

Posted by rayzor on 28 September 2014 - 06:37 PM

Shula can't block. Not defending him, but he isn't the larger issue on offense at the moment.

management of the offense is one of the largest issues on this team.

management of this team as a whole is a large issue.

we can't block because we spent $15mil on a guy who refuses to control his life off the field and that lack of control put him and the team into the position they are in right now. then spent a 2nd round draft pick that could have been used to help the OL on a guy meant to replace that guy we spent $15mil on who can't get playtime with that guy he's supposed to be replacing suspended from the team (or exempt or whatever you want to call it).

and in fact we did nothing to help out the OL because gettleman was sure that he could go with scrubs on the outside of the line and expect them to give cam any protection in a year that cam has surgery on his ankle. that was dumb.

now with a weak OL, still hurting QB and continually beat up and overpaid RBs we call plays that involve the RB running between the tackles and passing plays that take several more seconds that the OL is capable of holding off defenders?

i'm sorry, but proper utilization of our existing resources is a pretty huge problem.

if your OL can't block, work around that. don't act like it's not an issue and call plays like everything is fine.

#2985778 Is there any chance at all that Shula will be fired soon?

Posted by rayzor on 28 September 2014 - 06:20 PM

he should never have been given the job.

they have the guy who should have the job on staff right now. they need to either move from shula to ramsdell or they are looking at another .500 at best season.

the defense needs some help from the other side of the ball and we can't get by on just cam's talent. we ned someone who can take advantage of it and get the most out of who we have rather than someone whose whole career has been bottom of the barrel offenses.

if it weren't for shula's last name, he wouldn't have had a job in the league.

if you want some encouragement for firing him, look at what the teams he was responsible for play calling and see how well they fared after he was fired.

#2985659 Smith: "I ran around those boys like they were schoolyard kids"

Posted by rayzor on 28 September 2014 - 05:46 PM

i hate that our defense got schooled by some short punk wide receiver. i don't care who he is or where he played. the defense had no answer for him and that was embarrassing. that shouldn't have happened. not to us. not to this defense.

we got spanked two weeks in a row and our defense has been torn apart by two very mediocre offenses. that's all that matters. we lost two in a row and heading into an even tougher part of the schedule.

steve smith is just another player on just another team that beat us and if we don't change things quickly we're going to keep being that statement game for other teams who prove we are that team that can't put together two winning seasons in a row.

The armanti edwards mantra

philly brown had more catches in one game than edwards has had in his career.

that is no exaggeration.

maybe he should write an email to the OC.

if he wears another jersey, he's the enemy.

#2966664 Luke's jersey is best selling

Posted by rayzor on 21 September 2014 - 09:39 AM

I might take the tags off his jersey I bought at Goodwill and wear it tonight.

don't do that. wear those tags like a badge of honor.

#2966480 a whole lot of kuechly love from the steelers (w/ a little for TD as well)

Posted by rayzor on 21 September 2014 - 03:07 AM

Well, Indy was going to take Luck and I highly doubt anything could dissuade Redskins from taking Griffin, so it's just the 6 other teams that screwed up by not taking Luke


i would say the redskins screwed up by taking griffin and moving up to get him the way they did, esp. when they picked up the better QB several rounds later.

i was bored and couldn't sleep and i found this gem while perusing through a thread on a steelers forum.


very good read, imo.




The Force Is With This One

Over the last two seasons combined, the Panthers rank fourth in the NFL against the run and fifth overall defensively.

Remember those good ol' days, Steelers fans?


Yes, while the Steelers were finishing up their era of elite defensive standing, the Panthers ranked 24th overall in the 2010-11 seasons combined.


The seemingly abrupt change in the Panthers' defensive rankings over these last few years is due mainly to the drafting of middle linebacker Luke Kuechly with the ninth pick in 2012.


The NCAA's No. 2 all-time leading tackler (532) in only three seasons at Boston College, the Cincinnati-born Kuechly came to the NFL with the following names attached to the awards he received after his junior season: Dick Butkus, Vince Lombardi, Bronko Nagursky, Ronnie Lott and Jack Lambert.


Yes, there IS a Lambert Award for linebackers, but it's not likely Jack made a personal visit to Boston College to hand Kuechly his trophy the way Butkus did.


"I played against him," Steelers tight end Rob Blanchflower said of UMass's 45-17 loss to Boston College in 2011. "I just remember being very impressed with Kuechly and how good of an athlete he was, always making plays, coverage, blitzing. He was good at everything."


"I don't remember too much," Steelers running back Dri Archer said of Kent State's 26-13 loss to Boston College in 2010. "But I know we had a big game plan for him. He was just like he is now, but he's even better now."


"He's a great player," said Steelers linebacker Sean Spence. "Him being in the ACC I saw him play a lot. I had a chance to play against him. He's everything that everybody says."




"Luke Kuechly is quite simply one of the best in the business," said Mike Tomlin. "I think he is legitimately in the argument of a J.J. Watt in terms of some of the most exciting young football players in our game. There’s nothing that he can’t do. He is good at blitzing. He is good versus backs when he gets on running backs. Backs have a problem from a protection standpoint. He is a sideline-to-sideline tackler. He has innate instincts. He can slip blocks. He can defeat blocks physically. He is great in the passing game in zones and man. There is really nothing he can’t do. He doesn’t have many holes in his game as a linebacker."


"And you've got Thomas Davis right next to him," said Haley. "Those two are really the cornerstone of the defense as you watch on tape. They're in the middle of the action down in and down out. Up front they have a great rotation. But I would say it starts with 59 in the middle."


Davis, the weakside OLB in the Panthers' 4-3, leads the team with 22 tackles, with Kuechly trailing by three. Last season, Kuechly made 176 tackles to lead Davis and the rest of the team by 25.

#2966460 bersin ......here comes your chance son

Posted by rayzor on 21 September 2014 - 01:41 AM

one of the funniest things i see regularly in the huddle (and i guess every forum has them) are those people who feel it necessary to tell people to "tap the brakes" when they show a little bit of enthusiasm over a player or the team. and then in an effort to show just how much more "level-headed" they are, they blow comments way out of proportion.

"i'm excited to see what bersin can do this week" garners the response "WHOA! tap the brakes you bunch of homers. let's see the guy perform before we put him in the HoF, guys!"

where would humanity be without those clear minded individuals who rescue us daily from the dangers of a little bit of enthusiasm and optimism?
