  1. It's funny...reading through this whole thread, nobody brought up Winston until your message...I was about to post that he's who I wanted to thunderous ridicule...To me, he represents hope if he'd learn discipline with a new coaching staff...If not, we bottom out and look to the draft. I prefer both of those to a 8-8, 9-7 stopgap year
  2. For me, Reich earned a lifetime contract in his first year when he went for the win over the tie in overtime against the Texans, which failed and we lost...20 years of elite QB play watching us pooch punt on 4th and 1 from the opponent's 39, pulling starters once we had a bye and coming out flat in the playoffs, basically coaching scared got a little old to me...I know Doug Pederson's star isn't high right now, but he had the best quote I've ever heard about football..."Playing not to lose is a good way to go 8-8" I think we're an exceptionally well run franchise, which actually ki
  3. Well of course you would...Reich is part of a grand conspiracy to keep Chad Kelly down, and I think he's doing something with Area 51 too
  4. I can think of a lot of coaches worse than him...Let's see...Jim Mora, Tony Dungy, Jim Caldwell, Chuck Pagano...20 years of great QB play wasted by playing not to lose. Yes Dungy is a great guy and won a Super Bowl, but didn't you get a little sick of pooch punting from the opponent's 39 on 4th and an inch with Peyton freaking Manning on the team?
  5. I didn't want Love, so I'm glad we didn't trade up for him, but I have a feeling we either tried, or spread false rumors that we were going to try. The Packers leapfrogged the Seahawks and Ravens to take him, and he wasn't going there...And GM's seem to have a lot more information than we ever know about other team's targets. It's the same reason we traded up 3 spots for Taylor (though that one is more cut and dry because there was a decent chance Jax was gonna take him). And we were the only team anywhere near that range that made sense to fear. Again, whether it was true or not, I'd bet t
  6. JB is clearly not worth his contract, or more importantly cap number. I understand why Ballard did that deal, but it is the biggest black mark on his record...But people act like we get all that money available just by cutting him. That's not how the cap works, we get minimal cap relief if any by letting him go. I've said it before, if Rivers heaven forbid suffers a season ending injury or opts out, I don't want to roll the entire season with Brissett. But if he rolls an ankle midway through the season or tests positive for Covid and has to quarantine for a couple weeks, it's nice to have
  7. The season is a total crapshoot, both in terms of opt outs and who might face difficulties with covid down the road. Let's face it, baseball is the bellwether here since they're actually traveling as the NFL plans to do, and they couldn't make it through their first weekend without an outbreak and cancelled (sorry "postponed") games. I want to see a full season as much as anyone but the tea leaves aren't pointing that way... That said, if the season does come to conclusion, and we happen to be the lucky team that stays safe and healthy, and even win it all, there's no need to wor
  8. I don't know enough about Eason to love him or hate him, but dear God, I hope we cut the cord on Kelly, just for the health of the message board. The dude couldn't get a sniff over a hobbled Brissett and a horrible Brian Hoyer last year. I just fear that 10 years from now as he enters his 14th season, there will still be people on this board saying "Guys, I think this is the year that Chad breaks through and wins that backup role"
  9. It's kind of how you interpret the question...If you're talking about who's under the most pressure to maximize team success, it's easily Rivers and Buckner. Each was brought in to stabilize their own side of the ball, and the only ones with enough talent to make a significant difference in such a way... If the question is who's under the most pressure from an individual standpoint, I think Rivers and Buckner are fine...Buckner has his contract, and Rivers can't do anything for his legacy but win a Super Bowl and I just don't think we're quite at that level...I think we're a good
  10. Fine I'm a troll and i was bored...That's the only logical conclusion that can be had from reading the incendiary parts of my posts and not the parts where I talked about how great Nelson is and how I'm glad we have him, and that I was totally wrong for doubting the pick in the first place. Oh yeah, just got done taking Quenton for a walk
  11. I was waiting for the first overreaction, particularly to the 2nd coming of Christ part...like I said, I love him, I'm glad we have him, but just look to the best player in football thread for the "nanny nanny boo boo, everyone except me said it was wrong to take an OG 6th" posts. Me personally I'll admit it, not knowing we would get Leonard in the 2nd, I probably would have taken Roquan Smith, with Nelson as option B, and I would have been wrong. I just like to poke fun
  12. To be very clear about this, I love Nelson, I'm not gonna say I threw a parade over the pick, but I was fine with it, he's obviously been great, and I now have a dog named Quenton but... It's gonna be kind of fun to see all of those who think he's the second coming of Christ react to the comment about Cam Heyward whooping up on him
  13. Ok, let's not get crazy here...I know we're in the height of optimism season (Taylor and Mack will rush for 1500 yards each, Pittman will catch 15 TD's, etc) and I know we're all supposed to hate Luck for leaving when he did, but come on... Rivers will be fine, that's what he's always been, but his career stats are based on longevity and durability. I'm not saying that's not impressive, but at his best, he's about the level of average Andrew. No Andrew wasn't Peyton but how spoiled does a fanbase have to be to think they're going to walk out and trip over another Peyton freaking M
  14. The list hasn't really bothered me so far based on the criteria he brings up with every unveiling...the ability to push the ball down the field. Always talking about these QB's taking the 6 yard completion when there's a 30 yard option down the field...He even said Derek Carr would be a better QB if he was completing 66-67% instead of 72-73% if it meant he was taking some chances. I do agree with whoever said Brady and Brees may end up making this list look foolish if for no other reason because the offenses around them are so loaded So for this list, Rivers is about i
  15. I can't say I'm super insulted by the idea that we'll be worse...My guess is we'll be much better in TOP so our ranking might be better, but... I think we'll hold up pretty well against the run, have a decent pass rush, and in Eberflus I trust, but unless Rhodes shows up to camp in a time machine from 2016, there's no part of the secondary i feel good about. I'm not saying it'll be bad necessarily, but everyone has a lot to prove
