  1. I was shot down on here for saying Werner plays half heartedly when started but that's beside the point. Perhaps if we take a step back maybe we aren't good at developing/coaching OLBs. Jerry Highes, Werner, Freeney, Cole etc all underperformed here as OLBs.
  2. I personally haven't noticed but after watching Manning do it for years this is my belief. One it is related to their internal clock, I have to get this ball out. Secondly, it is easier to create motion while you remain in motion. Luck does miss on reads sometimes and they are most often short sideline options from running backs. We can easily see these things as we have overhead views. Luck on the other hand is ground level with players blocking his vision and motion distracting everywhere. Its easy to be a coach QB.
  3. Curious, so could a coach be demoted and be forced to perform new role or resign? Does the employment contract lock you into position?
  4. Bengal's Marvin Lewis is an example of a HC that has been insanely retained year-over-year and can't win playoff games.
  5. If I was to advocate a change in 2017 I would be 100% on board with Assistant Head Coach and let him get the Offense Organized and let Pagano focus strictly on Defense. Let him learn on the job and move him to GM in 1 to 3 years depending on how things go. This would be ideal scenario. Scenario 2 would be being him in as GM with major support and hire Gruden as HC and see where that gets you. I guarantee work ethic would change with Manning around to push them as a lead by example.
  6. If you fire the GM you are basically firing the coach as well.
  7. That's because you are playing with Monopoly money and emotion. Unless a can't miss becomes available I give it another year especially at GM. Now I don't think I would have grouped 2 unproven GM and HC in the beginning but my guess is emotions of Ravens Defenses got the best of us.
  8. So for all you let's cut X who is out there that is proven in the NFL that can come in here and turn it around? I am not saying I wouldn't make a change but only if it was a sure thing; otherwise, you are just starting all over again gambling.
  9. I don't think it was a coaches call. If you remember there are some liberties on special teams and I believe Pat saw the attempt to jump over the center and pulled ball and ran for it.
  10. Clark started well then struggled but overall good enough especially against that Defense
  11. I agree 100% on the short distance play calls I have been yelling about it during the games all year. Yesterday we outsmarted ourselves as we had the run dialed up with Turbin I believe before Houston called timeout and then checked out of it after letting them see the play. Should have stayed with the plan.
  12. He grabbed his arm, dropped his shoulder and just hit him he new the play was over.
  13. Walden should have got a personal foul roughing the passer really unnecessary.
  14. I am pretty sure his rookie contract will be up so no cut just no resign.
  15. I think our strategy is use up clock if possible to keep score under 60.
