Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

But it isn't credible. Prior to last game we were dead last in rushing. We still didn't have someone break 50 yards rushing in any game, Eagles, Bills, Packers etc. Holding on to we had 3.8 yards per rush in a game where we had 77 total is assinine. As I predicted, we would rush the ball well again...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

Its sad when 3.8 yards is considered respectable. Why do we always think that good enough is ok until it bites us in the #### come playoff time? 3.8 YPC on the road against the #2 rush defense is respectable. As for whether "good enough" is enough, it depends. If the rush threat is credible, if it ...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Couple of comments on the game - Nice to see some explosive running plays. Yes, Arizona sucks at run defense, but the Vikings managed to exploit that weakness and remained dedicated to running even when the Cardinals managed a few stops. Murray was very effective. - I've seen some comments about Cou...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

How about do nothing with the offensive line? That might sound like heresy, but it is an option, and here is why I don't think it is a terrible option. - As Kapp pointed out, swapping offensive linemen in, out or around for non-injury reasons during a season is a really bad sign. That means the guys...

Re: Where is the Elite Defense?

Elite defenses are a thing of the past and I think is a poor strategy for long term success in the modern NFL. The only way you can sack a QB these days is by having the defender tear their ACL to avoid putting weight on the tackle. Hell, you don't even need to tackle the QB to get flagged! The ill...

Re: Where is the Elite Defense?

Here is my opinion: Something changed in the playoffs last year. Teams are not trying to play us slow. They taking risk plays to get chunk yardage. PHI did this in the NFCCG. NO did it in the Divisional Round in the 2nd half. Rams did it on Thursday. Something is off with the D. Pass Rush just "wat...

Re: Where is the Elite Defense?

I think the solution starts with the scheme. They might have to switch things up and play a little more zone or something to protect those LBs. The question I have is, what sort of a scheme even allows a WR to run a route covered by a LB? I mean, on the one play against the Rams where Cupp beat Bar...

All Hail the Mighty Bills!

So, a week after the Bills offense came to Minnesota and had its way with the Vikings defense, and the Bills defense had its way with the Vikings offense, the Bills went to Green Bay riding high, looking for another stunning road upset against a flawed and seemingly overrated opponent. The results o...

Re: A Quick Comment on Tre Waynes

The biggest thing i take from this is, shields is a better cb than waynes so with that being said why hasnt zimmer moved on or found a better cb? Wasnt shields a f/a this year we could of got? Instead of asking why this players make repeat mistakes ask why the coaching staff hasnt found better? Ram...

Re: A Quick Comment on Tre Waynes

Watch the deep TD again. Waynes had excellent coverage was was looking over his left shoulder as the ball was approaching. Hand was right on Cooks chest too. If Rhodes was in that position it would have been no different. It was a better thrown ball and catch than anything. Even the announcers said...

A Quick Comment on Tre Waynes

Anyone else scratching their head after watching those 2 TD plays where Waynes was in coverage last night? On the deep TD where Waynes was in solo coverage, it sure looked like he had the position to swat the ball away. I mean, it was a great throw by Goff, but as the ball came down I was sure Wayne...

Re: Kirk Cousins is setting franchise records and Adam Thielen just broke a Randy Moss record

We've played one good defense all year and scored 6 pts in garbage time when we did. I would love to see this offense take it to a legit D at some point this season before I get on board the Cousins bandwagon. Even Keenum beat up on bad D's in this offense last year, and he is a backup. Rams have a...

Re: Rams Postgame Thread

Philly is going to be tough but I see us beating them. Especially if this offense continues to play like this. Philly's offense is nowhere near comparable to the Rams. Philly is 19th in total offense right now. Dont have much of a running game. Wentz is back but didnt look so hot against one of the...

Re: Rams Postgame Thread

Pondering, I respect your opinion. You always have something helpful to say and make a lot of good points. But saying this defense is even average at this point is a bridge too far. They are being exposed over and over and over again. I mean, just look at the success Gurley had using simple cutbacks...

Re: Do we give up on Treadwell or nah?

Here is my issue with Treadwell. He was a first round pick, but when he's out there I find myself happy if he just catches a short completion. I don't see him doing much to alter a game. He's not making contested catches, not walking the sideline on a tough outside throw, not going up and over on a ...
