#1977465 How do you guys feel about the rest of the season?

Posted by rayzor on 03 November 2012 - 06:53 PM

I think everyone should hope Rivera can get it together.I would feel more optimistic if our OL is healthy
I am thinking we can beat the Chiefs for sure but outside of that we will have to play well.

we've hung in there right to the very end against much better teams than what is left on the schedule.

i think we're good enough to beat just about anyone remaining.

it's just about being able to finish.

no team left on the schedule will beat us the way the giants did. i don't think any team will outright beat us. if we lose it will be for the same reason we've lost most of our games this year and last year...we found a way to give it to them. we found a way to lose.

btw...our hurting OL did quite well against the bears, i thought. i'm not really worried about them against most of the rest of the teams on the schedule.

#1977273 Could Byron Bell be a franchise Left Tackle some day?

Posted by rayzor on 03 November 2012 - 01:33 PM

if he's reliable at RT, let him stay there. no gaurantee that he would be as good at LT. no gaurantee that bell's replacement would be as reliable.

if we've got one postition set for years to come, let's not screw that up.

i hate shuffling players around. if it's not necessary, don't screw around. if it aint broke, don't mess it up.

Go 10-6, get the wildcard win Super Bowl...next question...

i think some would be pissed at this or even just getting a wildcard because that would mean that the coaching staff would still be here after this year and they'd have to get used to a "stoic" (lol) HC that wasn't screaming and foaming at the mouth on the sidelines.

#1976736 How do you guys feel about the rest of the season?

Posted by rayzor on 02 November 2012 - 06:51 PM

Age old question. My answer? I want what's best for the team. Which means wins, confidence and a reputation of ass kicking that gets the rest of NFL scared for next season.


the best thing for this team is to win.

I don't want Rivera and his brain dead staff to keep their jobs, so fug it.

what if they get things turned around and the light comes on?

not saying it's realistic to expect that, but if there's some way to avoid another "rebuild" i'm all for it.

i'm officially pulling for the rivera staff to pull it together.

i don't care who is coaching the team. i just want wins and i hope that the guy we have figures it out so we don't have to gamble with another coaching staff.

#1976392 Michael Jordan advice Cam Newton

in this context jordan may be the absolute best on to be taking this kind of advice from.

#1976389 Would you like to keep Rivera

Posted by rayzor on 02 November 2012 - 01:13 PM

Has that EVER happened? I do not see it under any circumstance.

yeah, it's kind of a ridiculous notion.

rivera would have no problem finding another DC job after here. no need for him to stick around and the team needs a complete break from the old staff, esp. if they still like the coach (which i don't doubt is the case).

#1976054 The real reason why the media hates Cam.

Posted by rayzor on 02 November 2012 - 09:16 AM

winning cures everything...esp. winning rings.

cam has a strong personality and hasn't been pandering to the media.

the only thing the media loves more than slobbering all over some big winning player is tearing down someone that is struggling. they love kicking a dog while it's down.

once cam starts winning the media will be drooling all over him again. they are among the most fickle bitches on the planet.

#1975972 Defense for real? Sunday should say much...

Posted by rayzor on 02 November 2012 - 07:49 AM

i think we'll look good the whole game against them. in fact i think they'll lead most of the game.

it will boil down to what the panthers do in the last 5-10 minutes that will decide the game, though. if river & co. decide to play it safe on D and stupid on offense then we'll blow another game handing the win to the other team.

we're as good and as tough as any team out there. you put last year's offense with this year's defense and you have a playoff caliber team. the problem is that we just can't finish.

i really hope we figure out how to do it this week.

#1975699 No Trades... No better

Posted by rayzor on 01 November 2012 - 09:20 PM

you think an intramural head coach and an interim general manager should be handling multimillion dollar contracts?


need to look at as the clowns runing the show until the real GM and coach is brought in did nothing further to f*ck up the team contractually further or screw us out of any potential draft picks.

#1975266 Jim Harbaugh will not be available. How about David Shaw ?

Posted by rayzor on 01 November 2012 - 03:35 PM

Don't get me wrong, I love the spread offense. I'm not disputing that it doesn't work. What I am mostly concerned about is his offense being a spread rushing attack type of offense that is reliant on being much faster/quicker than the defense. Call me out if I am wrong (I don't watch alot of Oregon games), but that's what his offense seems like to me. You are 100% right about him having no NFL experience being a big red flag though.

i think that's fine.

in fact i wish we were a lot faster paced than we are.

people may laugh at this, but i would love to have gus mahlzahn running the offense with cam again. he found the best way to utilize cam's abilities because he really does tailor his offense around his personnel, but he's also very innovative but uses much of the same basic principles used by NFL offenses. the thing that i loved most about what he did, though, is his no huddle, hurry up offense. the key for it was snapping the ball no more than 5 seconds after the spot on every down. this wears down defenses, taking away chances for them to adjust to what's going on and creates a whole lot of opportunity for the offense.

i don't really have a dog in this fight as to who we hire after rivera, but i don't want it to be a predictable offense or defense and i'd rather them be innovative to make it difficult for the league to adjust to. the key, though, is going to be in adaptability and variety.

Yeah, I mean I have zero doubt that Kelly can coach a football team. He's an offensive genius, but is he a little bit too creative for the NFL? This might be way off base here (I don't know much about the guy), but his offense seems a lot like Chud imo. Doesn't he run a read option type of offense as well? All I know is that the offense he runs is strictly a college offense. Seems like his entire offense is based on having faster/quicker players and spreading everyone out, and I'm just not sure if that'd work at all in the NFL (although he obviously wouldn't run the same offense in the NFL). I wouldn't be against hiring Kelly, but I definitely have big reservations about it.

being creative isn't the problem.

being limited is the problem chud is having. he had become as predictable as jeff davidson.

read option is a good option to use....but only if it is a small part of a much more expanded playbook and playcalling.

spread offense works in the NFL, though. it's been working for years and most of the most prolific offenses have been using it and it's becoming more widespread.

chip kelly's offense would work...but him as a NFL HC wouldn't because he doesn't have any NFL experience.

i don't have a problem with him coming from the college ranks and the fact that he has HC experience puts him on pretty much equal level with any NFL coordinators w/o HC experience, but the fact he has no NFL exp. as a player or a coach is a huge red flag and he'd have to have a strong NFL presence on the rest of the coaching staff...including OC, DC, and Asst. HC.
