Posted 11 Sep 2016Agree on the studs. Credit to the offensive line who did well too and helped the running game average 5 yards per carry.
Special teams, outside of Folk, played well to. Jalin Marshall added some spark to the return game, while Edwards had a couple of big punts, pinning the Bengals back. Unfortunately his best punt at the game, which landed Cincinnati inside their own ten yards line, led to them marching downfield on a nine play TD drive.
I wouldn't class Fitzpatrick as a dud. He was up and down throughout the game. We know he's not the most accurate QB in the world, but he kept some drives alive with some good throws.
Revis wasn't alone in the secondary having a bad game, which is worrying. That personal foul on Gilchrist was huge as well. Throughout the game we didn't have a response to the quick passes into the flats that the Bengals were running. We've definitely added speed up front, but our secondary isn't the most fleet of foot by the looks of things.
Posted 4 Sep 2016Overall, the roster is looking reasonably good. Maccagnan and Bowles have opted for youth and speed, particularly at receiver and linebacker, which is what the team needs. I'm excited to see what Mauldin and Jenkins do at OLB, though I think they'll look to get Wilkerson, Williams and Richardson on the field together as much as possible when all are available.
Bohanon was the only cut that I'd probably disagree with, and even then FB isn't the most important of positions.
We do look a little thin at CB and very thin at TE, which is where I think a free agent could be brought in. Cutting Sudfeld and Amaro suggests that TEs again are not going to feature heavily in our offense. At corner we have to hope Revis, Skrine and Williams all stay healthy, as Burris had an up and down pre-season, while McDougle has missed a lot of action again.
There's still at least three interesting roster moves to be made too.
After Richardson's suspension is over, I assume that Lawrence Thomas will be the guy who makes way for him.
Things will be more interesting when Smith and Giacomini are eligible to come off the PUP list.
At that point, assuming Petty doesn't go to IR, do we go from 4 QBs to three? Does Giacomini, who hasn't relly impressed in his two seasons with the team, get activated or released? Which receiver - Anderson, Peake or Marshall - is likely to make way for Smith?
Posted 24 Aug 2016Not sure about the roster but when is this team going to get a crushing dlineman? Bend but don't break philosophy sure as hell isn't working. F*ck bend but don't break.
I know it's preseason but but im really concerned about our dlineman.Except on the few occasions when Jenkins was healthy in 09,10 this team hasn't had consistent diline penetration in well over a decade.
It looks like it's the same damn thing this year. Everyone complains about the secondary but the core of every good or great defensive is good or great dlieman.
A team can have average corners, and safeties, if they have a dine that can breakup plays and constantly get penetration and pressure.A stellar linebacker helps too. We have Wilkerson and yet still this team always makes teams with decent online's and average qb's and even backup qb's look great with all kinds of time in the pocket.
Colt Mccoy is a backup that couldn't make it as a starter and he looked like a probowler against our 1st string defense last week.
Getting really tired of seeing almost every qb throw for 300-400 yards against this team every year.
As we play with a 3-4, it's the lack of a pass rushing threat at OLB that has meant opposing QBs have had so much time in the pocket.
Jordan Jenkins has looked promising at that position so far in pre-season, while Mauldin flashed at times last year, but it would be silly to place such high expectations on a third round pick and a first year player coming off an injury shortened rookie campaign.
If anything this preseason, we've looked soft up the middle against the run, which is worrying considering Snacks is no longer with us.
Posted 24 Jul 2016If Fitzgerald doesn't re-sign, then I think it's going to be Geno getting the nod.
Regardless of the question marks about his ability, Hackenberg was drafted to be the quarterback of the future and so I don't think it would be worthwhile to ship at least one draft pick to obtain either Bradford or Foles, neither of whom are top rate starters.
Seeing as it's his contract year and with the starting position currently being his to lose, Geno should be doubly motivated. For all his faults, I think he can do a serviceable job, particularly given the players around him. It should help that the offense is far better equipped than at any time during Geno's time with the team so far. In Forte, despite his age, there's a legitimate pass catcher and check down option in the backfield, which will make life easier for whoever is under centre. Then hopefully Jace Amaro and Devin Smith will stay healthy to add a threat at tight end and third receiver.
Posted 20 Dec 2015Studs:
Defense - a bend, but don't break type display. It wasn't the most polished performance from the defense, and yardage-wise it was one of the worst performances this season. However they made important plays at crucial points in the game, none more so than when Calvin Pryor picked off Moore with Dallas threatening deep in the redzone. To give up that many yards to a team and still only give up 16 points was impressive (admittedly it did help that the Cowboys used both Matt Cassell and Kellen Moore at QB...)
Powell - continued his great run in recent games. His TD was an authoritative run, while he delivered again in the passing game
Fitzpatrick - the INT aside, he again made the throws when they were most needed, and he made some good plays with his legs to avoid Dallas' relentless pressure
Decker, Marshall and Enunwa - our top two receivers can be expected to deliver every week. Enunwa stepped up massively yesterday though.
OLine - Fitzpatrick was under pressure throughout the game, and the run blocking wasn't particularly special either. In recent games, the offense has been terrible in short yardage situations, which shouldn't be the case when you having a bruising back like Ivory. Winters and Giacomini also got called for too many penalties, with one on Winters in the first half negating a big pass play to Enunwa that would, at a minimum, have flipped field position.
Ivory - struggled again, as did Ridley in the few carries he got.
Special teams - Bullock had his two misses, Quigley had one awful punt that gifted Dallas great field position (luckily Cassell ended up throwing a pick to Revis after it)
If we repeat that performance in our final two games, I'm concerned as to whether we'll be able to get the wins necessary to ensure of a playoff spot.
The first half in particular was worrying. To have forced two turnovers and had three redzone trips and then come away with just 9 points and be behind was not good.
Dumb mistakes cost us. Call me conservative, but I don't think the decision to go for it on 4th and 1 inside the Dallas 10 was the right one that early in the game.
Then the defense made things to easy for the Cowboys on their TD drive, with the penalty on Pace - harsh though it was - and Cromartie's whiff on Butler on the left sideline.
To compound things further, there was the procedure penalty on Douzable which led to the re-kick which Bullock missed.
At least second half we were better and only penalised once.
