#2108167 OK, so if no heir to Smitty is in our draft plans, or in the draft at all,the...

Personally, I want to build up the defense with the first picks so we can compete highly in our division. We have one of the toughest divisions to compete in when you look at their offenses. We need a defense that makes them cringe when they see us on the schedule.

no, we need to be able to score more than them.

that is the key.

you have to be able to win shootouts, because regardless of how good you think your defense is, you're going to be involved in one. and you have to be ready to have them in the playoffs. no team in the games last week scored less than 28 points and there were only 2 who scored 28 and both of them lost. 49ers scored 45 points against the packers 31 points. the ravens had to score 38 to beat the broncos who had 35. point is...these games can get pretty high scoring and you have to count on your defense not being able to stop them.

i keep preaching this, but you CAN NOT trust your defense to stop a team from scoring. i don't care how good you think they are, you can't act like they can. you can't put them in a situation where they have to stop the other team. it puts too much pressure on them and the league makes it easy for offenses to come back from behind. the rules protect the deep pass. the QB has a cushion around them and the WRs can't be touched past 5 yards and have to be allowed to plant their feet before you hit them. good and smart offenses take advantage of that.

it's good to have a great defense, but you are shooting yourself in the foot if you don't have an offense that can beat any defense through the air. none of those teams get into the playoffs without killer offenses and good receivers. none of them get there without being able to put a ton of points on the board. none of them have any hope of going the distance without a great offense.

btw....falcons lost today (yay)

but they've made it to the playoffs every year since smith and ryan got there and they inherited quite a disaster when they walked in.

they didn't have to wait for years and build slowly. we can laugh all we want at their collossal choke, but at least they got to the playoffs. where have we been? making excuses.

the ravens....john harbaugh and joe flacco walk in and they take a 5-11 team and they get in the playoffs every year since.

jim harbaugh takes a team that hadn't been to the playoffs since 2002....hadn't even had a winning season since then either and what happens when they get rid of that former chicago bear linebacker and pick up a HC that has a clue? year one NFCCG with the has been/never was bust of a QB in the first year and then go to the superbowl the next year with another QB.

it only takes a long time to build a winning franchise if you aren't very good at it.

teams that can win find a way to do it. those that don't make excuses.

you hear that?

its my tears falling on the ground.

no really....it is.

so what if its because I'm laughing a little. classy? who cares?

#2107423 Who is Jim Harbaugh?

Posted by rayzor on 20 January 2013 - 08:16 PM

how many probowlers did they have before he got there?

when was their last NFCCG prior to him getting there?

how about their last playoff win? or their last playoff appearance? or their last winning season?

how long did it take for them to find success after he got there?

maybe all they needed to do was figure out that the major thing holding them back was the former '85 superbowl bears Lb they made the mistake of hiring as HC and they just needed someone who had a clue.

#2107227 Just a question for the huddlers.

Posted by rayzor on 20 January 2013 - 06:53 PM

I didn't even know what to say to that...

you agree with it.

kaepernick opens it up and makes that offense better. he's a playmaker. smith was just a game manager. they were more limited in what they do offensively with smith. still good, but with kaepernick they are better.

#2107161 Who is Jim Harbaugh?

Posted by rayzor on 20 January 2013 - 06:39 PM

I don't know who Jim Harbaugh is but I sure know how to draw up one mean pie chart. -JR

Meanwhile our team is festering in mediocrity.

I'd say we were aspiring for mediocrity.

In before fieryprophet tells us he's not that good


#2106768 What must Cam think watching these games

Posted by rayzor on 20 January 2013 - 05:49 PM

frikkin mike shula.


#2106161 JR would have said hell no to this

Posted by rayzor on 20 January 2013 - 03:18 PM

he wouldn't hire someone not part of the NFL regardless of how good they are and i doubt he'd hire another offensive guy either.

doesn't matter how much it was going to cost, JR wouldn't think outside that box.

#2105571 Talent or Coaching?

Posted by rayzor on 19 January 2013 - 11:35 PM

oh...for gettleman what i would do is take game management out of rivera's hands if he didn't make better decisions in games. i would hire a game manager....not a game manager QB, but a coach who is an actual game manager. is any other team doing that? i don't know, but they should because that sure isn't one of his strengths. if gettleman wants to keep this staff, but give them the tools to do better, a game manager would be it.

#2105200 What record would keep Rivera here after next season?

Posted by rayzor on 19 January 2013 - 05:55 PM

10-6 or playoffs, but i would go beyond that.

i don't care how good they look at the end.

if they have a losing record heading into the bye week...he's gone.

3 losses in a row and he's gone.

losing can't be tolerated at all. if the players don't like him being under the gun like that...too bad. they better step it up.

if he manages to pull off a run in the playoffs or 10 wins, thats not enough for a new contract. he's got to have two winning the seasons in a row to get a new contract. if he can't then we move forward without him.

screw the process...it's time to see results.

#2104656 For everyone that thinks our offense would be top-tier if Chud stopped going...

Are you getting tired of writing the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over?

not as tired as i am of this team failing to have a winning season over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

shula's well deserved reputation is that of a bad play caller. bad and uncreative decisions that take too long to get to the QB.

no one doubts he is a good guy. no one doubts his chemistry with cam. it's his proven record as a playcaller. it doesn't matter who you have on the field or how great the playbook is if the coaches making the decisions on the field can't be trusted to make good and/or quick decisions.

giving this team the benefit of the doubt is all we do because all they do is give us reason to doubt. at some point you start noticing that giving them the benefit of the doubt has only paid off four seasons out of 17 and regardless of the studs we have at QB & MLB, you doubt the coaches ability to pull the best out of the players. you doubt their ability to make good consistent decisions, esp. when it matters most.

promoting shula did nothing to make me feel better about this coaching staff's ability to make good game time decisions, in fact it made me have less confidence in them.

I'll cheer for them and hope this works, but i have faith only that this team will continue to do what it's evidenced itself to do...blow close leads (that i think will come less often now) and lose games until the end of the season after the team is eliminated from playoff contention.

am i wrong? i hope so and it sure wouldn't be the first time, but until they can prove they can win when it matters instead of just trying to save their coach's job at the end of the season, i will not believe. i won't be suckered into believing in them again until they give me proof it's worth it.

#2104301 This Franchise is on the right track

Posted by rayzor on 19 January 2013 - 12:25 AM

lol i done been preached at by the REAL panther fan.

tooo funny. "what gives you the right to disagree with these guys who have been in the league for a million years? who are you to say anything bad about them? who are you to have an opinion?"


#2104235 Get ready for Cam to give us the middle finger and leave...

Posted by rayzor on 18 January 2013 - 11:38 PM

Our fanbase is the most self loathing goddamn fanbase in the country.

having a team that can't figure out how to win and that constantly and has to have excuses made for them about losing so often instead of fixing problems will have that effect.

or it could be that we are the most gullible one for believing in them with so little in return.
