Posted 1 Dec 2013We haven't had any legit receiver tandem since we had Holmes & Edwards together. Kerley is our leading receiver and he hasn't played since week 7. That's pretty fvcking sad. This Salas kid has shown signs of being a decent target but he doesn't get his number called. It'll be an interesting offseason to say the least.
Posted 1 Dec 2013Good to see you Clutch. Your boys at least have the tie breaker over San Diego but need some help as Baltimore holds the tie breaker over Miami. There's no doubt that Miami simply outclassed the Jets in every form today. Pouncey being back helped a lot as the ONLY part of the Jets that actually showed up was the D-line but just barely. The sack-fest that was supposed to be managed to flip to Miami getting them.
Posted 25 Nov 2013Long read, but worth it if you take the time. Throw it out on the front page if you want. I love coming to this site because we can actually talk sensibly and even when we debate about shit, sometimes it may get out of hand but everyone normally at least makes intelligent points on both sides. I may be frowned upon due to certain viewpoints regarding my opinion about a former player but it is what it is. I still stand by my opinion.
I am concerned for Geno's mental health more than the INT ratio at this point. If he gets benched for the remained of the season, that can be tremendously detrimental to his development as he'll lose any self confidence that could be built after getting some success under his belt. 3 of our last 5 are at home with away games in Carolina and then closing out in Miami. A lot can happen in that time period. Yes.....some people here point out that he's got 18 INT's. I say big deal. Peyton Manning had 28 INT's his rookie season in a run first offense. Manning threw a pick for ever 20.5 passing attempts. Know where Geno is when compared to Manning? One every 28.8 pass attempts.
Don't get me wrong.....I'm not saying Geno is even close to Peyton Manning, but honestly, who knows? Drew Brees has had only ONE year in which he hasn't had double digits and had 22 only 2 years ago with 9 fumbles (only 2 lost). It wasn't until Brady's 7th season as a starter before he got under 12 INT's himself.
Geno is being completely bashed by some, but he's actually ranked higher then Aaron Rogers right now. People say EJ Manuel is better. Well.....NFL.com disagrees apparently. According to QB rankings on nfl.com, Manuel is 11 spots BELOW Geno @ #30 while Geno is #19 (sounds about right). Rogers, Henne, Schaub, Cutler, Kaepernick, Glennon, Bradford, Ponder, Pryor, Foles, Manuel, Weeden & Fitzpatrick are all UNDER Geno at this point. If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself.
Yes, he's throwing far too many INT's. There's no arguing that, BUT the loss yesterday in no way shape or form falls entirely on Geno. Our secondary had INT's bouncing off their facemasks. Salas seemed to be the only receiver who knew how to catch. Rex and company all but took the ball out of Geno's hands because they didn't trust him throwing into the wind on the road. What DOES fall on Geno is his refusing to run when the opportunity presents itself. We won a game with his legs already this season and now he's not scrambling for some reason. He is definitely having some growing pains and all of the turnovers are something he's not used to after lighting it up on the collegiate level but he's a work in progress. When he's on, he has some very nice games. When he throws his first pick, it gets in his head and he tries to overcompensate which leads to more turnovers. If Geno doesn't show improvement over the last 5 games, we're looking at Mike Glennon, Teddy Bridgewater, Tajh Boyd or Johnny Manzeil to be brought in to battle for the starting QB spot.
We're still in the hunt for that final wildcard spot even though it goes to Tennessee currently due to the better conference record as there's what? 5-6 teams all with a 5-6 record so our boys will need to fight and scrap for every point that can get on the board. Even if we fail to reach the playoffs, I honestly don't give a shit. If we manage to win 2 of the last 5 and finish at 8-8, THAT alone is a HUGE result when we were picked to finish dead last in the league. I'm not about ready to throw in the towel and say even this season is done yet. We've got 5 games left with 4 being very winnable IF the team can come together as a solid unit. We've got Miami twice, Oakland, Carolina & Cleveland. We honestly can't sleep on any of them because just as easily as we can win 4 of the 5, we can also lose all 5. Oakland was seen as trash but the McGloin kid or whatever the hell his name is has shown promise. Miami always plays us tough. Cleveland is a mirror image of us in that they win games they're supposed to lose and lose games they're supposed to win. Carolina? We're absolute underdogs in that one. Especially with the game in Carolina. So,we've got a realistic shot at 8-8 and possibly even 9-7 and a WildCard birth. How about we see some positive thoughts rather than non-stop "We Suck" and "Geno's the worst. 1 TD vs 10 INT" bullshit. I honestly don't give a flying fvck if he throws 100 INT's if we actually win the damn games. I'd prefer he doesn't throw them but in a pass first league, the number of INT's is expected to increase. None of this fantasy bull$hit that "rookie expectations are higher". According to who? If the attention to the vertical game has obviously gone up, so has the attention to defend against it, so no......it's NOT realistic to have higher expectations for a rookie QB. Stop thinking that Russel Wilson & Andrew Luck are the norm when they're the exception.
Like Harlem said......we're going to have some money to play with in the offseason as well as a 3rd or 4th rounder coming to us from the Revis deal, we could end up with as many as 4 compensatory picks if all players lost qualify.
This is how we SHOULD end up in next year's draft:
First round – one pick (middle)
Second round – one pick (middle)
Third round – two picks (one early, one middle)*
Fourth round – two picks (one middle, one late)
Fifth round – two picks (one middle, one late)
Sixth round – one pick (middle)
Seventh round – three picks (one middle, two late)**
Overall – 12 picks
* Early third rounder could become an early 4th rounder if Revis is cut by the Bucs in early March just to avoid giving up the pick by being resigned considering they have no dead money by doing so. The only thing they take a risk with would be him signing elsewhere.
** One of the late seventh rounders could become a late sixth rounder if Shonn Greene plays a lot in the second half of the season
Still feeling really shitty about the team? I'm not. God knows we need help on Offense. The O-line still gets punished by some teams. We still have no legit #1 Wide Outs as Holmes has definitely lost a step. f***ing Greg Salas looks like our best hands at the moment with limited opportunities. Maybe we've got a TE, maybe not. Our RB corps is not as exciting as we'd hoped but it's still top 10 so it's manageable. WR is our biggest Offensive concern AGAIN since we've done nothing really to correct the problem. Hill is going to be lucky to be on the team next season. Salas has a better shot right now than Hill does.
Defensively, our LB's are getting old. Secondary? Milliner is not turning out to be the star everyone had hoped he'd be. Kyle Wilson is having a much better year in my opinion in the nickel. Cro is dealing with a nagging hip injury and looked like he did more damage to it yesterday. All of these things can be corrected. Our D-line is amongst the best in the league it not the best. The biggest question will be whether Woody sees that and will give Rex another shot at it or not by allowing him to stay on the final year of his contract and see what he does. If we fail to make the post-season this year and next, I'll join everyone in saying he needs to be canned as HC but retained as DC because otherwise, I think we move further away from the post-season than we would be with him. We're missing 3-4 pieces. Between free agency and the draft, there's no reason why we shouldn't contend not only for the post-season but also for the division. New England is not the regular season juggernaut they once were. Miami seemed as if they were going to be a lot more competitive and I honestly believe if it weren't for their inner turmoil, they could very well be leading the division. Buffalo? Well......that depends. If Rex stays on next season, Buffalo stays in the basement. If Rex is let go and the wrong person is brought in, we'll be taking up that spot.
Posted 24 Nov 2013Couldn't agree more.
All of this fire Izdik, fire Rex, Geno's a bum $hit is laughable. The excuse is "expectations are higher for rookies now". Really? So the expectations are now for a rookie second round pick QB to come to a team with a new OC, no legitimate WR's or run game, shotty O-line protection to succeed immediately on a team picked to finish last in the league.
We were expected to have the #1 overall draft pick. We'll end up with #17-20 & STILL have a shot at a Wild Card which is honestly truly amazing at this point.
Do I blame people for being aggravated with losing 2 in a row? Not at all, but it's non-stop negativity anymore, even when we win for fvck sake. Geno's not Luck or Wilson. Get over it. They're the EXCEPTIONS to the norm. NOT the fantasy norm that some people apparently believe exists.
We're a lot better than we saw today. Going into the game, we had the #1 run D in the league and number 8 run offense even with the rush game being shaky at best throughout the season. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next few weeks.
But let me ask a question.........would everyone expect instant success if we got the #1 draft pick and drafted Terry Bradway or whatever the hell his name is? If so, you're insane to believe it.
Posted 24 Nov 2013I honestly don't care who's behind Center as long as we win, but I can only hope that the team doesn't do to Geno what was done to Sanchez. Sanchez MIGHT have been able to be a better QB had he not had a difference OC pretty much every year and no consistency with offensive playmakers.
My wife asked me what player on the team I'd like a jersey for and the only players I can even think of would be Wilk or Richardson at this point.
