Recommended Posts

So...with Olsen out Ian Thomas had been the starter...anyone want to tell me why he had less snaps than Manhertz? Less targets too..

The only thing I can figure is that his route miscommunications that led to two INTs vs. the Giants led to him getting leapfrogged by the vet.

    I would say it has something to do with the 2 miscommunications with Cam last week. Rookies make mistakes, but 2 in 1 game? And in crucial situations. (Yeah, we're watching you DJ.) Although they let DJ make amends for his mistakes. So it is interesting they did not let Thomas make up for his.

 

    Or...in b4 "Rivera hates him some rookies".

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's what I said. Only different.

Could it be that Greg Olsen is the catching TE is back and hence Ian THomas who is also a catching TE is on the bench, Manhertz is the blocking TE,

Rivera said that young talent was not on the field due to "schemes."  So weaponry like Thomas and Samuel rode the pine while Manhertz and Wright failed to achieve mediocrity. 

I  was very happy to see us go back to Moore  after the fumbles.  Steve Smith, as a rookie, had 8 fumbles--we lost 3 of them. The following 2 seasons, he fumbled 5 times each season.  After that, he averaged just over 1 fumble per season for the next 13 years.

Yes, I remember that.  It was definitely a wtf moment.  I guess they were thinking it would surprise the defense, but imo, might as well throw it to me.

Yeah, like how Shula would line Cam up at WR once a game and the RB would take a direct snap for a two yard loss. They'll never see it coming!

What fuging scheme? And what team in the NFL sits there playmakers do to scheme for a game? 

So Torrey Smith is more suitable for most schemes in the nfl then curtis samuel?? 

Its really becoming harder and harder to take serious the bull poo that comes out Riveras mouth. He blamed the damn weather too. .......GTFOH

The real question is why in the hell did they call a screen for Manhertz of all people. Olsen yes, Thomas, why not....Manhertz is not that dude though. That was a terrible play call.

A screen is the easiest catch in football,.. and you run behind the blocks,...

I guess the staff thought a “tightend”, even just a blocking tightend would catch a screen and get 5-7 yards, misdirection.

they wouldn’t see it coming because rightfully, no one would try to cover Manhertz—-

Norv won’t try that again— Manhertz choked his only chance.
