  1. A legit question to ask is how did this team always fall behind? They did have a fantastic defense I believe. Also, that team had a superior established backfield compared to our “on paper” backfield potential. Our line was superior though and wr’s Meh, I’m not sure if the actual isn’t a washout or not. Time is going to tell though what Rivers has left if they let football get played. I still can’t see FB getting really started at the season opener.
  2. And when you get that solved on all sides, well, it’s just not realistic to think you can fix that across the board. Bad people are just bad people. Much like the gun debate, guns kill not people or vise versa, people are racist because they are simply terrible people inside, you can’t fix bad people imho.
  3. I miss the days where sports were just about playing a game, watching an actor was about movies and where news reported the news not tried to simply steer the narrative. None of this is present today. It’s maddening!! It was always about white America. Period! Once backlash hit early, they wrapped it into a “its not disrespecting the flag and vets, it’s about evil police. nonsense! As for the revenue, I hope these bad evil white Americans stop attending, watching or buying the merchandise. We shall see if the little misbehaved children are stepping in and replacing these nfl pocketbooks with their government payments. I’m not naive enough to believe that racism doesn’t exist in the world and certainly in our country but what angers me is not once, not one time since any of this mess, has any media or talking head ever brought up the question of is their any reverse racism occurring. Maybe I’m wrong and every black man or Asian or Indian or (insert race) only has love for white Americans. i have and will always place my opinion of people based on how they act and treat me and those around me rather than choose based on their color. Many of the issues that is being railed against White Americans currently is being reverse engineered. Insane!
  4. It appears the first of the dominos have fallen. The HOF game is cancelled as well as the HOF induction. Sadly, I still see this as a pressure campaign to shut it all down. It may be on the wide open campaign or more lobbying behind the scenes but I feel like there is a push from many to just shut down the entire country until we have a cure for this. We may never find one, who is to say. I can’t believe we are in this state of panic and fear. I still don’t buy the fact that the MLB will play either when it gets down to it.
  5. It’s not easy. The NBA, MLB, tennis even, all these groups also have lots on the line and have been shuttered pretty much. Heck, couldn’t even run nascar, where a guy is in the car by himself for weeks. They may have procedures they’ve planned for but in a full contact sport like football, I’m concerned they will give into the public peer pressure of cancel culture even if the risk is minimal. Personally, I think we’ve gone super overboard on the entire quarantine part of this issue but we are where we are and of all the sports, these guys will be all over each other for at least 3 hours a day during the season. If there is a risk of the major sports, this would seemingly pose the highest risk contracting the virus from another.
  6. Just the cancellation of the season due to covid-19 concerns, but other than that, I’m sure we will stumble upon something to cause us grief. glad everyone is signed, now, I just hope they get to play football and the season doesn’t become a season of protest and political statements.
  7. At least he wasn’t going to be able to play early on anyway so his signing isn’t such a big deal and I’m sure, like all the other 3rd rounders before him, they will get it done on time.
  8. If he balls out, he has a chance at being a Colt in 2021 if he fails, it’s time to see what Eason/Kelly have If he is just above avg and Eason develops quicker than thought and he wants bigger dollars, Eason (maybe Kelly) gets the nod if the team gets a SB win, I’d agree with the above poster, he calls it a career and we see the next guy up regardless of fully ready or not. A SB buys a team a couple years of development of players.
  9. Yeah, I watched the pats/colts game and then the SB game on YouTube. It was nice.
  10. It’s what some people enjoy, looking for anything to tear another down. If we all the capabilities or care to go searching for an ignorant comment we’ve made, most everyone has a skeleton to hide. Everyone has made a comment or statement they wouldn’t want out in public. This is a small droplet in the sea of water we live in.
  11. Yeah I watched the game mostly and heard that line. PM is pretty funny. Even TB was pretty humanized during the match. It just comes so much more natural to PM than it does for Brady. I’m not a big golf fan but that was worth the watch yesterday. Blew away watching nascar later on. The circle cars are just puke!
  12. I think by adding Buckner to the Dline, you’ve upgraded each other mans talents as well along the line, he was that good. I think with Buckner and Stewart pushing them middle back, it’s going to create enough gaps for lb’ers to shoot and for the ends to reach the edges as the QB won’t be able to take 7 steps back and survey the field most every snap. Lewis May even show why he was drafted this year if he has increased his raw production and is healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been saying dump JB and his remaining cap hit and pick up Clowney for a year or even Griffin. That money would be better spent there as opposed to JB and clip holding. But adding Buckner alone has improved the ability of the Dline tremendously with just the guys we have imho.
  13. Yeah, I knew where you were coming from. There is going to be a group that says we won but 25 million for 175 is stupid to pay a guy for that production while not being able to see the whole concept and ability. Running it effectively is waaaay safer than throwing it 20 yards downfield plus it allows your defense to rest and stay off the field. I thought we were going to be getting that style game from JB last year in just managing the game to long, drives with clock controlling game plans but he couldn’t make the defense respect his passing abilities. At least Rivers has that game built in to his reputation already. I don’t need to see a 60 yard bomb pass but I’d love to see a quick hitting 5 yard pass become a 45 yard TD on occasion lol.
  14. I see us using the short passing game like the run but also being able to use the run off that as well. What will be critical is for Rivers to be able to hit those intermediate strikes and get those chunk plays to force DC’s to loosen up their defense and not play so tight near the Los as they were able to do with JB. I’m very curious to see if we have truly acquired a FB to incorporate big with the offense this year or if it’s going to be just a goal line/short yard offense package. id love to see a package where we come out with TY, Paris/Pittman and Hines at the slot with both backs split in the backfield. Is it a run, a screen or a bomb to TY?
  15. I’d tend to agree with your thinking here. We don’t need Rivers to throw for 300 a game but what we need to have, is a QB with the threat of doing so if needed and not just when we are 30 points behind in catch up mode with prevent defenses. What will set Rivers apart from JB is hopefully his ability to read and process what defenses are setting up for against us. If we can successfully screen play, run and the occasional chunk play, I would welcome a 200 yard performance in the air with 150 on the ground and 24 points avg/game. Having a QB who can scan and process the field quickly and get it to the right guy is where having a smart QB will be worth his salt. seeing what Rivers did with Eckler last year makes me very optimistic for Hines and the short pass and YAC game. JB couldn’t get that game going for Hines, coaching, game plan or inability to make the correct reads, I’m not sure why but knowing that Rivers has already done that with an unknown source last year, I feel like that will be the power to the engine of the beast for the year. If either of Mack or Taylor shows he can catch the ball out of the backfield this season, we should be able to put up 30 often with some big strike shots imho. I wonder what our redzone game will look like without a Ebron (2018) type guy. I know Pittman has the size but not the game experience yet. We will see.
