  1. A definite NO to Quinn. His defenses in ATL have been horrible since he got there. Does Kyle Shanahan have anyone in his coaching tree? His offensive schemes are outstanding, and opposing defenses always seem to be on their heels while playing him.
  2. Last time I checked, we still had 4 guys on the roster who are (were) Pro Bowlers (Atkins, Eifert, Mixon, AJ) We have a outstanding No. 2 receiver in Boyd. We have a shut down corner in WJII. These are nice pieces in place to build upon. A friend of mine who played in the NFL, told me that every team pretty much has equal talent (in most cases), but what separates great teams from good teams, and bad teams, is coaching, schemes and play calling
  3. His looks totally lost on the sidelines. Confused, bad challenges, no challenges, limited TE involvement in his offense. How about putting Tate and Eifert on the same side of the field, just once, please. He continues to run Gio up the middle for unknown reasons. Not having a spy on Lamar Jackson. I could go on and on.
  4. If it takes you damn near 8 quarters to score a TD, it's time to do some self evaluation.
  5. The NFL is all about schemes and match ups. Zac's offense doesn't fit our personnel. And he doesn't make adjustments on the fly. Mixon was killing them early, Vance made an adjustment, and Zac didn't. If you know the line sucks, call more quick slants and bubble screens. No more shotgun with one RB. Especially on 4th and less than 1. Lou's defense requires team speed, especially at the LB spot which we do not have. They should NEVER EVER have WJII playing zone. Bates is trying to do too much by covering up for the LBs mistakes. Preston Brown is simply horrible and slow.
  6. True, but ask any WR about ankle and toe injuries. They are never the same afterwards
  7. Who would accept a trade for him? His last two injuries, have been significant. He has a surgery repaired big toe on one foot, and a surgery repaired ankle on the other. No one will trade for him. Sadly, this is probably him and Dalton's year together.
  8. I'm not a Xs and Os guy, but can someone explain why they don't run more 2 TE packages? Seems like you could run, pass. or play action from them. Wouldn't there always be a mismatch with LB or DB on the extra TE?
  9. Seems like he is struggling with this defense. Remember he was a Teryl Austin guy. I know it's early, but he hasn't shown much confidence back there. Looks like he is trying to make up from miss coverages by the LBs, and playing completely out of position. Same for Shawn Williams, whose name I haven't heard much in the first two games.
  10. If I'm Mike Brown, first call I make this morning will be to Trent Williams and the Redskins. I'd be willing to part with 2nd and 4th round picks
  11. Can someone please tell me what do they have against starting Trey Hopkins at center and putting Billy Price at LG? Seems like such a logical move. Clearly Hopkins plays center much better than he plays guard
  12. RIP to Ced. That Bears game will be my fondest memory. Dude was on a mission and damn near unstoppable
  13. Wonder if this had to do anything with the new OL coach. Remember, dude is old school and a hard ass if I'm not mistaken
  14. Didn't see our scoring drive, but did notice a couple of things that really stood out. Driskell is not a NFL QB. Highly inaccurate in his throws. Would be very surprised if he makes the 53 Lippett struggled bad on defense. Doesn't read plays well and his pass interference call was justified. All he needed to do was turn around and he would have had the interception. Darius Phillips actually played well, but he definitely isn't a returner. Malone played well, but dropped a pass going across the middle. Tate played very well. I would love to see him, Eifert, AJ, and Boyd on the field at the same time. WR will be our strength this year
  15. As someone mentioned, it is rare that you find a very productive no. 2 receiver, who is willing to say with his current team, in the same role, rather than become a No. 1 and receive more money somewhere else. We have seen in the pass that this normally doesn't pan out. Housh, Marvin Jones, Dwayne Bowe, and Mike Wallace, are prime examples.
  16. I might be the only one who likes the touch of green on the orange and white jerseys
  17. On paper, we have just as much talent, if not more, at the skill positions as the Browns. However, I do feel that their running game with give us major problems.
  18. Next time I'll just refer to him as #13 for the Browns
