I disagree with you about Keenum, until Cousins puts up 13-3 season I will keep that opinion.
And it's fine you stick your neck out for Cousins he has a heck of a arm.
Yeah Keenums 13-3 season was great. But why is everything else he's done (or I should say, not done) in his career so overlooked? He already has double the losses he had last year in Denver right now. With 6 games to go still. He's gone back to the Keenum of old. He came back down to earth. Four games with zero TD passes and an INT? And he has talent in Denver. So why anyone thinks he'd be doing any better here with a new OC is beyond me. He doesnt touch the Rams this year, doesnt get the comeback Cousins had against GB, dont see him beating Buffalo given how bad the OL played. Maybe would've done better in Chicago given how bad Cousins played. Maybe done ok against the Saints. But lets not act like his accuracy was anything special either. Those pop flies he use to throw up hoping and praying cost us more often than not. It was a main reason the Saints came back in the playoffs. It was a main reason Washington was in a game with us last year (luckily we were already up by so much). He was horrid against Philly. He also lucked out having a Rodger-less Packers team to play twice that year. He ended up making Houdini type plays that sometimes worked and sometimes didnt.
Like I said before, not downgrading his season last year because it was awesome while it lasted but let's be honest, it's never happened in his career other than last year. It's drastically different this year on a fairly talented team. Last season was not ALL luck, but there was a lot of it that's for sure. The playoff game vs the Saints says enough as it is. If he was playing similar or even somewhat similar in Denver, then I could understand where fans are coming from. But that's not the case. He's playing like he's played his whole career, below average. I'm sorry but 6 years of well below average play, DRASTICALLY outweighs one good 13-3 season.
As mentioned I just wonder if Flip puts the RB's in position to succeed.
The RB's was getting 6-7 yards a run in the first quarter.Then Boom...Cook fumbled and that was pretty much the end of the running.
We had a few attemps after but 1st down and up the middle the other team knows what is coming Or Cook running a sweep for a 5 yard loss.
Myself I would like to see more of Murray and then Cook. Kind of like the Murray/Jet tandem last year. I feel Murray has been running hard this year. He's probably not going to take many to the house but positive yards would be a start.
They need to do a better job of getting Cook in space. Like Shurmur did with McKinnon. Cook is a stud. I truly believe that. And everyone knows I'm a big Murray supporter due to playing against him in high school. This could be a result of losing Sparano. He was our run game coordinator. Either way, these RBs are damn good. One of the best tandems in the league. It's not on them to figure it out. It's on Flip and Zim.
Everybody on the OL had a bad game. Every linemen got beat at least a couple times.
Compton got injured and Isadora come in.
From what I remember I thought O'Neill played fairly decent. The rest not so much.
My thoughts are I would like to see Treadwell demoted. Everytime Robison comes in he is making TD's, or even using Beebe more. Treadwell seems more like a head case to me.
Agreed with Beebe and Robinson. Idk with Treadwell. He's played better since early in the year.
A couple of WTF moments
Cousins missing Diggs for a TD.
Cousins throwing to a triple covered Treadwell for a pick 6.
Wilson's personal foul call.
Agreed. Same with Harry's penalty
Sometimes I think Zimmer is like Alice in Wonderland...he just doesn't get it.
Flip: it would be nice to give him a passable OL before passing judgment on him.
I get what you're saying. My only thing is, Flips playcalling in general just isnt great. Especially from a run standpoint. I called multiple runs during that game sitting in front of my TV. It's just obvious. There is no creativity there. And he's relying to heavily on Cousins.
Last thought...all the good teams puts up lots of points 40 - 50 points.
When is the last time we put up 50 points stomping someone.
Again, I hear ya, but those teams (especially LA and KC) have horrid defenses. Now I could be wrong but one think I like about Zim is his adjustments at half and his adjustments the second time we play a team. I remember a few years back Seattle WORKED us in the regular season putting up 38. We then hit the playoffs and we straight up shut them down. Same thing with GB that year. We get stomped at home by them and then beat them for the division at GB when our QB threw for 99 yards. Shut them down defensively. I dont see the Rams putting up another 38 on us if we catch them in the playoffs. Or the Saints given they scored mostly off of our offense effing up. Zim has Sean Peytons offense down to a science. The only reason they had more than half the points on us last year in the playoffs because Keenum tried his stupid pop fly throw and put them inside the 20. Then get a blocked punt which put them in our end. If you think about it, we've played the Saints 3 times in two years. How many TRUE drives did they have where they marched down the field on us from end to end and scored? Not many. Less than most other teams came close to allowing.
I still have a lot of faith in this team just because I know what they are capable of. Onto GB!
