  1. IMHO it is not a talent problem as to why this is a losing football team. Not every single draft pick is going to be a super star but if youre getting people who contribute then youre doing well. Whether you like it or not the majority of those players are contributing. Banogu is still playing out of position imho. Plus as it sits Ballard has still drafted better talent then Grigs ever did and better talent then Polian did in his later years.
  2. Lots of questionable calls and blitz's last night leaving the middle of the field wide open.
  3. How can you tell if he can read NFL defenses or not? The only regular season snaps hes played he got thrown out to play hero ball against one of the better secondary's in the league. Just because someone is religious doesnt mean they cant have something against someone gtfoh with that idea
  4. I think its way more of an indication of how much Reich utilizes a QB's mobility as a crutch rather then Eason's ability. Sure Rivers wasnt mobile but he had a quick release and years of experience reading coverages which IMHO made Reich look better then he is. Hundly can do only 1 thing and thats to scramble. Eason is a pocket passer. If you have faith in your O-Line and your receivers ability to get open then you start Eason 10/10. If you don't think your O-Line will hold up and you need time for coverage to break down so your receivers will get open you start Hundly. That being said I personally think Reich has it out for Eason. I felt that way back during training camp and preseason. Even down to the plays he would call for Ehlinger vs Eason.
  5. Atleast Wentz had a career game as well. Did we end up stopping their rushing streak?
  6. The ineptitude of Reichs play calling is the leading factor IMO. Luck and Rivers were able to overcome it, but it was apparent with Brissett and now Wentz. With players like MAC, Pittman and Strachan there’s no reason why we should have the redzone struggles we have had. Our defense plays soft by design. The scheme is designed to give up small gains but take away big chunks, unfortunately the defense has lost their discipline.
  7. This sort of stuff is largely why I blame Reich and not Ballard. I think we have some great players on this team but the usage of them is so head scratching..
  8. I guess I'm really kinda disappointed here. I like Mack and feel he has always worked hard and played hard for this organization. Why we have two 1,000 yard running backs in our back field and Reich is refusing to utilize either one to the point where one is asking for a trade is honestly just adding to my frustration of Reich
  9. Regretting getting season tickets this year.........
  10. 36% in the red zone................. Thats right 36% of the time we are in the red zone it ends up with a TD. How pathetic...
  11. We heavily rotate on DE, we also just spent a 1st on a guy so hes going to get the start. The others still get significant snaps. Our back up o-line is injured as well. Wont argue the Campbell pick, i hated it from the get go. Eason was drafted in the 4th and was basically red shirted for a year. Also Hooker walked in free agency he wasnt cut. Do you actually think about what you post or do you just let your brain have diarrhea all over this forum?
  12. Everything Reich does is kinda laughable at this point
  13. He was let go after saying some nasty things to a guy who’s brother died IIRC…. So yea *that guy
  14. I mean on the upside we will have our first round pick.......................................................
  15. I like Reich as a head coach. I think he is a great leader of men, the players respect him and play hard for him. Despite us not making the 4th down plays (we made a ton of them last year, we just sucked Sunday) I still like that we go for it and he puts faith in the players to get the job done..... I HATE Reich as the play caller for the offense though. I think he is incredibly vanilla and predictable. I was honestly in awe when we ran the exact same play back to back. Missed a lot of opportunity's with the play action pass. I honestly believe we have some seriously talented WR's but Reich does them zero justice. Its painful when you see guys being schemed wide open on other teams but somehow we cant do that. Let our OC call the plays instead of Reich and ill be happy...
  16. I dont think its been underwhelming at all... He's made a lot of good plays and plenty of good catches. Strachan kinda overshadowed the rest of the receivers because no one expected him to do what he was doing. I personally felt like him and Rivers never really developed a chemistry until later in the season and that showed...
  17. Nice to see Pittman getting some love from people outside of fans. I think these first few games are going to be huge for him, with T.Y out that puts him as our #1. Excited to see what he can do.
  18. Luke Rhodes is a capable linebacker. Thats why he was originally signed but changed positions to retain a spot on the roster and is a terrific LS. You dont mess with a long snapper though. A bad one can ruin games, so keep a good one doing what hes doing.
  19. I’m kinda with you with Reich. I love him as a person and I like him as our head coach. As the play caller I’m less then impressed. Very predictable with a lack of creativity IMHO
  20. I mean Eason had a whopping zero interceptions while Sam had 3. ill take the guy who threw for 1 td and zero int then the guy who threw 3..... Ill admit that Sam was the funner QB to watch and I understand why people wanted him to take over for Eason. However I personally want the steady consistent guy over a guy who's going to make a splash play here or there but makes a lot of mistakes in the process that end up hurting the team. Plus I think Eason can be a starter in the league, but i think Ehlinger's ceiling is a career backup.
  21. Sam was not hurt, he was benched. Go back and watch the vikings game after he threw his 2nd interception at 5.45 in the 2nd quarter.....
