    The Roaring Riot just blew my mind

    That first step actually is kinda complex for us.

    Ron Rivera: Just Average

    Take out all the Gettleman years and Rivera isn't even average. If you wanna stick with Rivera, you're gonna need a good enough GM to cover his weaknesses. Hurney isn't it. And frankly, if you're gonna change GMs, you need to not rehash the mistake Richardson made by forcing the new GM to stick with Rivera.
  3. #1 - NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (11-2) @ Panthers vs Steelers vs Panthers #2 - LOS ANGELES RAMS (11-2) vs Eagles @ Cardinals vs 49ers #3 - CHICAGO BEARS (9-4) vs Packers @ 49ers @ Vikings #4 - DALLAS COWBOYS (8-5) @ Colts vs Buccaneers @ Giants #5 - SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (8-5) @ 49ers vs Chiefs vs Cardinals #6 - MINNESOTA VIKINGS (6-6-1) vs Dolphins @ Lions vs Bears _____________________________________ #7 - CAROLINA PANTHERS (6-7) vs Saints vs Falcons @ Saints #8 - PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (6-7) @ Rams vs Texans @ Redskins #9 - WASHINGTON REDSKINS (6-7) @ Jaguars @ Titans vs Eagles #10 - GREEN BAY PACKERS (5-7-1) @ Bears @ Jets vs Lions #11 - TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (5-8) @ Ravens @ Cowboys vs Falcons #12 - NEW YORK GIANTS (5-8) vs Titans @ Colts vs Cowboys #13 - DETROIT LIONS (5-8) @ Bills vs Vikings @ Packers #14 - ATLANTA FALCONS (4-9) vs Cardinals @ Panthers @ Buccaneers NOTES - Someone posted a scenario earlier today showing how the Panthers could make the playoffs even at 7-9. That's great, but here's what sucks. The Falcons apparently have that same opportunity, and besides the head to head with us, take a look at their schedule vs ours. And of course, if they beat us again it'd be a sweep and they'd hold the tiebreaker. - The Saints and Rams are still duking it out for the #1 seed, though the remaining games on the Rams schedule are almost sickening to look at (more so if you're a Saints fan). The Steelers, who screwed us some weeks back, might now screw us again by sucking at season's end and making the road easier for the Saints to stay in contention should anything unexpected happen. - The most vulnerable of the current Wild Card eligible teams looks to be the Vikings, not only because they have the lowest seed but also because their remaining schedule includes two games against teams with winning records. To be fair though, so do we (sort of). - Among the also-rans, we're in a logjam with two NFC East teams who will play each other on the last week of the season. As mentioned previously, we hold a tiebreaker over the Eagles but not the Redskins. The Redskins, however, are down to about their 15th choice at quarterback, so it doesn't look good for them. The Eagles may be starting a backup too, but that was true last year as well. - Bottom Line: Any realistic scenario of the Panthers making the playoffs involves winning out, which means beating the Saints twice, once in their stadium. And even then, we'll still need help. Lose again, and the amount of help we need gets greater. Lose twice and it'd take a Christmas miracle for us to get in. Odds are we're gonna end up being told there's no room at the inn, though we do have a nice stable with a comfy manger out back and some lovely parting gifts. But hey, ya never know...

    Let's talk Saints...

    I've actually begun to think that the "four or five plays" philosophy may be part of the problem, but I'll probably wait and write more about that later.

    Updated Remaining Schedules

    So apparently they're Scorpion and we're Sub-Zero... (Fatality!)
  6. Mr. Scot

    Updated Remaining Schedules

    I've actually heard some people saying "Hey we beat the Cowboys before. We can beat em again." Genuinely believing that is probably a pretty clear sign that you're not really paying attention.

    Let's talk Saints...

    Yeah, mentioned it earlier. My nightmare is the Saints winning it all and then afterwards saying "Yeah, we were in a bit of a slump but that game against the Panthers helped us get going again"

    FYI: The Falcons could do it too. Their remaining schedule besides us... vs Cardinals @ Buccaneers
  9. Oher was actually pretty good till he got that concussion. Moton is potentially even better but ya know...
  10. Mr. Scot

    Let's talk Saints...

    This is why I hate stats and rankings.
  11. My guess? He says he's healthy but really isn't. (Lord knows it wouldn't be the first time)
  12. Mr. Scot

    Moton ranked in top 25 o-linemen

    Yet now that Chris Clark is apparently injured, the answer is to keep Moton on the right and put Marshall Newhouse as the starter on the left. Ron Rivera, ladies and gentlemen.
  13. And here we are again at the mercy of Ron Rivera's piss poor talent evaluation and roster management skills. If Chris Clark can't go, the most obvious solution to most of us would be to put our best tackle (Moton) on the left and let Marshall Newhouse backfill on the right. But no... Rather than put our promising young tackle back at the spot where he performed very well in the preseason, we're going to trot a 30 year old journeyman out there instead. Oy... Rivera reportedly "doesn't see Taylor Moton as a left tackle". This from the same coach who apparently did see Byron Bell as a left tackle. So I guess Taylor Moton isn't quite as good as Bell. Mother of...

    Depends on the player. Poe probably is. Torrey Smith also (when he plays). Likewise Davis, Peppers and others are probably giving it all they've got, but they haven't got what they used to have. This is likely true of others also. Are there some who are half-assing? Probably. But coaching is a major issue too.
  15. Amini is on IR. I'd take Moton left and Newhouse right over the reverse.
  16. Newhouse over Moton?

    Worst fear postseason quote... "We went through a rough stretch there, but that game against the Panthers really helped us get back on the path to winning it all."

    At what point in this process will you be sprouting wings and flying?

    I think they already are playing up to their potential. If we get drubbed by the Saints, what will you say?

    The Roaring Riot just blew my mind

    If I actually thought we were capable of doing something in the playoffs, I could get hyped up for this. The prospect of playing one game where we get our doors blown off doesn't really excite me.
  21. Mr. Scot

    2019 cap space what would you do?

    Put it in the hands of a better GM.
  22. The NFL didn't force Ron Rivera to go in with a dumb game plan. Neither did they hold a gun to his head and tell him that he wasn't allowed to make adjustments.
  23. I'm curious as to how many people are concerned about it at this point given the injuries and such. Have your estimates of how many years he has left changed?
