#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.

So 24 year old men in the world actually act like this on the internet?

#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.

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.

#2029827 Petition to bring back Neg Rep

Posted by rayzor on 03 December 2012 - 05:53 PM

every post voted up counts the same numerically regardless of the voter's established rep.

which is fine really. before you'd get one or two jumbo reppers who could make or break someone in one fell swoop because of everything they accrued by posting breasts and buttcheeks. this is a much more balanced approach.

thanks for the update mods.

i don't know. i liked wielding such power. made me feel i was somebody for a little while.

oh well....

#2028931 Keep Hardy, Kuechly and CJ. Dump everyone else on D.

and replace them with who exactly?


fire everyone
hire reid

this guy knows football.


#2028461 Andy Reid and Carolina, match made in heaven?

Posted by rayzor on 02 December 2012 - 09:51 PM


do people not even question if reid's offense would fit here? if cam would fit it and if it would be best for cam? do people realize the amount of time it takes for ANY player to learn the WCO, esp. QBs?

ahhhh....he's a coach thats won a lot of games and i've heard of him. he had his job for a long time. he'll do. meh.....

a big FAT NO from me. nothing against the guy. he's just beat up from being in philly and esp. from life and family issues. he's damaged goods at this point. and i don't want that WCO around here. find something that actually fits the players we have. find a system that doesn't take 10 seconds to just call the play and has overly lengthy and unnecessarily long verbiage. and it's really not any better than any other offense out there...college or pro. let's find someone that brings an offense that's simple to learn, simple to run, and fast. let's find something that isn't going to be drastically different than any of our players have been used to. and lets maybe, just maybe isn't a system that's on it's way out the door in the NFL because no one wants to bother with it.

and again, i like the guy and i hate what he's been having to deal with on a personal level, but he's turning into a relic.

#2027611 Rivera believes he will finish out the season.

Posted by rayzor on 02 December 2012 - 05:20 PM

i can't fathom the meltdown that will occur if ron is given another year.

i think i'll become a 49er fan until rivera's gone (mainly because i like harbaugh).

seriously i hate the mentality this team has. until they can prove otherwise with their GM and HC choices, i have no choice but to believe that this is a soft team with no sign of having the balls to make themselves relevant.

i'm just pissed and tired of this crap. not sure how much more i can handle.

#2027600 Real reason we suck....more evidence

Posted by rayzor on 02 December 2012 - 05:18 PM

defense gave quinn a cushion all game. it's almost like they were trying to give the chiefs the game.

players were soft. the Dline played like crap. the play calling was soft.

oh...and rivera...crennell, the man whose head you can see from outer space, just let you know that it's ok to go for it on 4th and 1, you pansy.

i'm tired of bad soft coaching.

i'm tired of defensive minded coaches who play it safe.

if we hire another DC for a coach i'm probably quitting. i'm just tired of soft, risk averse, football.

it's time this team grew a set.
