#2036382 Rivera identifies himself as the problem

Posted by rayzor on 08 December 2012 - 02:28 PM

I was going to say this ^.

Nakamura proved earlier in that game he had absolutely zero ball skills on the td roddy white caught earlier. Sure nakamura had a pick in the game, but just about anyone could have picked that ball in that position.

When we had them pinned deep like that we should have had coverage personnel in, especially at safety. Nakamura completely lacks athleticism, speed and ball skills, these are 3 things Martin has. Makes no sense why martin was not in on the play.

yep. it was no secret that nakamura was lacking in the coverage department. so why put him on the field on obvious passing downs in the first place, esp. in that situation?

sure, it was nakamura's fault that he didn't make the play, but it was a play/situation that he shouldn't have been involved in to begin with.

but even getting to that point was on the coaching staff. it was 4th and 1. atlanta's strength was it's offense, esp. in clutch situations. it's weakness, esp. that day, was the D which we had been scoring on a good bit. so what do you do? you give it to the offense.

i'm sorry...but a punt is a bad play in short yardage situations. it's just weak and i hope the next coaching staff has some balls.

Posted by rayzor on 08 December 2012 - 12:57 PM

balanced, unpredictable, abusive, opportunistic, and very fast paced (no huddle/hurry up offense).

that's what i want.

Well, to be fair, and I'm not defending Rivera (I think he's dreadful), 2 of our DBs including Nakamura were still in a position to make a play on the ball. Not much our coaches can do to prevent Nakamura from just missplaying it.

having nakamura on the field instead of martin was a big error of judgment.

#2036295 What are the chances of getting Bill Cowher

Posted by rayzor on 08 December 2012 - 12:46 PM

maybe if we hire omar khan.

don't know that cowher is the best or most ideal man for the job.

i'd rather have him that just about any coordinator, esp. D coordinator or that mike mccoy guy.

it just depends on how forward thinking he is and allows the team to become. if he sticks with a ground and pound run heavy scheme and isn't looking to take advantage of the rules protecting the passing game i don't think i'm all that interested.

i'm not interested in any brand of football that opts for ball control rather than scoring early and often and putting a ton of points on the board.

you're really going to blame that on the coaches?

a safety that does get deep enough and mis-plays the ball by mis-timing his jump........

is the coaches fault.

which coach exactly was at fault?

the one that had gamble rushing in on that play instead of...i don't know...covering a receiver?

#2036171 George Kokinis, Marc Ross, and Dave Gettleman being pushed by Accorsi for the...

Posted by rayzor on 08 December 2012 - 07:42 AM

I think I may be the only one that has Dave Gettleman as his current first choice :lol:

I'd be happy with Marc Ross too, though.

ross is the "sexy" pick, probably because he's younger but i think gettleman might bring more to the table. i'm not crazy about his age, but that's not a deterrent to me.

like you, i'd be completely happy with either.

#2035639 An article that gives hope for the future

Posted by rayzor on 07 December 2012 - 02:40 PM

great read...but what is he thinking that parcells would want to do here? coach? GM? run the show?

don't particularly want parcells. don't want gruden unless he's grown up and is less of a putz than he was at tampa. as much as i don't want gruden to come, i don't want another DC turning into a HC. i've grown so weary of that it isn't funny. we need to go aggressive. we need to go offensive.

love the article, tho. "the biggest sleeping giant of the last 20 years". love it.

once this team figures out how to win, it's not going to stop.

#2032889 Hardy: Panthers are better team than Falcons

Posted by rayzor on 05 December 2012 - 04:45 PM

i love the attitude. need to be thinking that every week. they just have to show it at the end of the game.

#2031688 Chip Kelly as New Head For The Panthers

Posted by rayzor on 04 December 2012 - 09:13 PM

My only stipulation for our HC is that he was a successful HC in the BCS or higher. I'm not saying just anyone who fits that description, but that should be the first filter when the GM is screening candidates. Coordinators adjust quickly to the HC job often enough, but I don't want to go through the same thing we did with Rivera again. I think adjusting to the NFL is easier than learning how to HC.

No failed HCs and no never-been-HCs please.

that's kind of where i am as well.

i want someone with experience managing a team, but good experience and i'd rather have someone on the upside of his career rather than the downside.

if the guy is coming from the college ranks, what is needed is good assistants/coordinators with a lot of pro level experience.

the win/loss record is important because they have to have a winning culture, but they don't have to be perfect because they won't be perfect here. they just have to know how to win and manage a team.

well that was quick.

#2031100 Gross

Posted by rayzor on 04 December 2012 - 12:07 PM

not without a solid option to rely on.

you don't cut unless you KNOW you've got someone at least as good or better lined up.

and no...that's not easy to do.

#2031020 Ron Rivera's first press conference - a summary

Posted by rayzor on 04 December 2012 - 11:11 AM

He went on to say his football philosophy is to be aggressive on both sides of the ball, as well as running a balanced offense. He said not just balanced from a run/pass perspective, but rather knowing when to run the ball, knowing when to pass the ball and attacking your opponent's weaknesses.

this is where i feel we were lied to.

i think they were pretty aggressive last year, but this year he just crapped all over that aggressive thing. he's essentially picked up where fox left off as far as aggressiveness and playing not to lose.

it's what i really expect from defensive minded coaches who tend to prefer more ball control games and not really being aggressive. i thought that rivera was a break from that mindset, but i was wrong. the organization was wrong.

we really need to go a very different direction this time around and we need to get someone with a track record of being aggressive and running an aggressive game.
