Eric Washington monday presser/Olsen interview

Recommended Posts



I have to disagree with Coach Washington. We've been pretty consistent on D. Unfortunately, we've been pretty consistently bad. :(

Rivera and staff putting the responsibility solely on player execution is quite the trend. For a supposed "player coach" Rivera and crew sure are quick to throw their players under the bus in the media.

Here is what I saw--understand that I am a novice like all of you.   Our defensive backs were lost early on.  Alex Smith looked like Tom Brady. I saw Poe and Short--right near the ball-jump offsides at key times in the game---they are highly paid veterans.  Focus issues?  I saw Butler and Love penetrating on the back side of run plays, not sliding back inside to stop the cutback. In addition, they are not keeping the OL off Luke.  I have no idea whether this is their fault or due to some schematic shift, but I would rather have Luke and Davis chasing the RB than Butler.   Adrian Peterson of 33 looked like AP of 27.  Thompson was not filling back side cutback lanes. 

Those of you who want to see more jam and man coverage, you need to realize that the CBs in this defense are often contain--they have to face the LOS to do that. 

This defense is not focused / prepared, and that has been the case a lot this season.  Yes, I blame the coaches and the players.    If we lost to a better team, I would take my lumps.  But that team had no business beating us-even after spotting them 10 point.

Greg Olsen was asked if not being able to practice indoors last week contributed to flat start. He doesn’t buy it. Said it’s easy to say that. Panthers have dealt with the current set up for years. And the bottom line in this league? “Nobody cares.”

 

Take notes Ron. 

It's pretty pathetic when you've got players on this team with more of a backbone than our head coach.

This one is actually not on Ron, about the only one out of the presser 

 

Tepper already made note in one of his first interviews about the poor or lack of indoor practice facilities.  Theyre practice in a hotel/convention center etc.

You can put that on Ol Jerry trying to save himself some $$$.  Less spending on the team and more $$$ in his pocket.

 

Glad that old fug is no longer our owner

That damn offsides penalty on Poe was inexcusable.  That killed us.  We go from forcing them to punt, to them making a long ass field goal.  Those 5 yards were super important.  Also, the 2 times KK and Poe killed us on false starts they were lining up outside as a Defensive End.  Havent seen us do that much in the past, and I think we need to retire it.

It's on Ron for making this an excuse. In Ron's press conference today, he literally pointed to the elements as an excuse.

My point is, Greg Olsen has more of a backbone than Ron Rivera. Ron won't man up and accept responsibility of the way this team is constantly under-prepared and under-performs.

That's a fact we all know he should simply say I didn't have my guys prepared as best as possible I'll do better period. It's scary ignorant Samuel wasn't in on at least his winded 12 snaps based off last week I think they only saw Moore get busy last week somehow guys Ron missed our best route running yac ability play making WR because what did we need to practice in inclement weather, why couldn't we run one or two plays we know he can do successfully based off last week. Unless he didn't see the plays Samuels made last week in that case I completely understand his assessment.

I see the offsides penalties as players who know this D requires the DL to get pressure and they're frustrated because they know they're not providing it so they're pushing extra hard.

We are literally two plays away from being 5-0. But it's the coaching that put us in that position. The years we lost close games we missed the playoffs.
