#1944333 So....here are my thoughts

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 09:33 PM

agreed on most of that...esp. that maybe rivera put too much trust in his coordinators. they need discipline and focus and he needs to give it to them.

both chud and mcd are smart guys, but they are also young and relatively inexperienced in their coordinator jobs. they need him to reign them in. it's his job to make sure that they are doing theirs. if he can't do that then he needs to move on as do they.

i think you're also right in that the dallas game is going to tell us a lot about this team...more so than the first five.

they screwed the pooch the first few games in a lot of areas. made a lot of mistakes. that happens, though. what matters is what you do with those mistakes. you either get better or you get worse. if they don't get better i have very little faith that they can at all.

#1943954 A problem we might be overlooking

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 03:19 PM

How many 3 and outs do we have?

basically this.

we don't have the passing attempts cause we aren't on the field long enough. not enough first downs. too many 3 and outs. we are 29th in time of possession with just over 26 minutes. 27th in number of plays.

number of passing plays is the least of our problems.

#1943819 David Gettis Practicing Again

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 12:41 PM

it all depends on if the game plan or cam can/will get him involved.

he's good enough to be on the roster but he'd still be behind smitty, lafell, and murphy. the fact that he isn't a returner isn't going to help him. we'll have two spots for returners and i don't see them putting adams away for long. they'll get him back in there soon enough.

the only spot he has a realistic chance of taking is AEs and i don't think they are going to cut ties with him.

i'd honestly be surprised if they kept him on the roster. they certainly don't need more WRs on the roster and i don't want to take anything away from any other position.

#1943777 Emotional Leader?

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 12:02 PM

I prefer a leader that doesn't pout.

the pouting doesn't bother me. the not being able to get over it is the problem.

#1943768 Should we blame Richardson and not Hurney?

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 11:56 AM

If what you say is true then there is no hope for this team. History will just repeat its self till something changes. IDK when this playing young players thing came along but its been worse then what they did prior to it. You will never make me understand how we can build from the draft all the while trading our draft picks away every year. Just makes no sense to me.

it isn't worse playing so many young players. there has just been no balance. it's been one way or the other.

the plus side of playing so many young players is that they are getting experience so you're actually building a team for the future. the problem with that is that it takes longer to pull that off than what we would like and involves quite a bit of risk taking.

the way it was before where we relied too heavily on old guys was that the window of opportunity was rapidly closing and it didn't look like there was any chance that another would be opening. there was no phase 2 to the building process. eventually it would have all fallen apart anyways. what richardson did in having hurney strip the team down was boil several years of decay into one nasty and painful band aid removal.

imo, the biggest problem has been on the defensive side of the ball. i think we brought in a good amount of talent on offense and from that point it's just a matter of cam maturing and the OC finding the right balance between trying to be innovative and disciplined. it's been the right balance personnel-wise between FAs/trades/draft picks.

defense has been way too lopsided in the way it's been put together.

to be honest...i have no qualms with trading away picks, as long as they aren't early picks, esp. rounds one and two. i just wish that we used those picks less for gambling on rookie low-risk. meh-reward prospects and more on vets who have a clue.

#1943448 It needs to be asked

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 07:16 AM

QB isn't the problem...at least long term.

we absolutely have the right man for the job for the next 15 years. it's just a matter of 1) letting him develop and grow up and 2) making sure he's got the right talent around him on both sides of the ball and the right coaching to help him reach the goals we all have for this team.

there may be quite a few places that we need help, but QB isn't one of them. we need as much help there as we do at RB. cam makes us stacked at QB.

so some of you have been looking at those things for 10 years now?

i've been posting on message boards for a long time and never saw that. not sure what kind of places you people go that it's commonplace...don't want to know. that's your business.

#1943427 It needs to be asked

Posted by rayzor on 11 October 2012 - 06:55 AM

squirrel just wants a WVU player here.

that's all this amounts to.

if you're trying to make the worst thread of the day you lost in a big way. i mean that's not to say this thread doesn't suck in a huge way, but there's just no way that it can hold a candle to some of the others, esp. fug's.

some dick.

#1942885 Should the team consider trading beason

Posted by rayzor on 10 October 2012 - 04:15 PM

i don't want to, but it all depends on what the offer is.

it would have to be reeeeeaaalllly good. i'm talking unrealistically bend a team over a barrel after we slipped them a roofie type offer from them.

#1942737 Hand pick you new head coach, gm and top 10 pick.

Posted by rayzor on 10 October 2012 - 02:52 PM

This is fun...both message boards I frequent want to fire the current coach for Jon Gruden.

I foresee disappointment x2

he's not who people think he is.

#1942733 Remaining Schedule: Who CAN we beat?

Posted by rayzor on 10 October 2012 - 02:51 PM

meh....still think we can hang with any of them.

i'm not expecting it, but i think we still can. it will always come down to finishing. i'm going to see what they do coming out of the bye before i give up.

#1942694 Who do we take?

Posted by rayzor on 10 October 2012 - 02:39 PM

wrong forum.

and not a cool story, bro.

#1942686 The Stakes Have Been Raised For Cam

Posted by rayzor on 10 October 2012 - 02:34 PM

what is poor is so many of you posters are giving Cam a pass and blaming on play calling and not even considering execution. That is lazy at best.

Play calling makes Cam fumble.

Play calling makes Cam throw ints.

Play calling makes Cam throw balls into the dirt.


Dislike it all you want, I wasn't even comparing him. He is being outperformed, period.

true. he'll get better, but he's got a good bit of room for improvement that isn't on the coaching staff.

they aren't off the hook, but cam shouldn't be either.
