  1. Great question but I’d honestly have to believe that a real discussion has to be had with CB after the season is over. He just has the pattern of being poor for anything more than 1 half. It’s literally Jekyll and Hyde all season. Make all the excuses you want. Refs, poor lighting, Reich was distracted by butterflies etc... but neither FR nor Flus has proven they can coach full tilt for 4 full quarters, regardless of all the tape he can look back at and see his own faults. He is on the chopping block imho. CB may think differently but I and many others feel he isn’t growing enough to
  2. Uhhhh, his actions suggest otherwise. He is a super nice guy but isn’t making good coaching decisions. That = and avg coach. We can do worse for sure (that Texans Coach O’Brien for example) but we can certainly do better.
  3. Is this defense a product of Eberflus going limp or is it a directive of FR telling his coordinators to stand down on aggression and just play to use clock? Basically try not to lose the game by playing aggressive and giving up big plays, however, it tends to lead to big plays and either a loss or a nail biter. When CB figures out who is making these adjustment calls, then he can relieve the appropriate person.
  4. Can we look back and count all the pressers in which crappy outcomes are blamed on him with a self admission? Perhaps he is just not a good coach and needs to be replaced with someone who can go 4 full quarters without severely overthinking every play call. I’d fully expect this from FR, it makes him feel better about it by stating the obvious fact. if CB does an open, honest and fair assessment of this coaching staff after the season is done next week, he will see that FR is not the guy to keep leading this team. Halftime games coached well isn’t enough. Cant keep playing poorly or
  5. Why is this shocking to you or anyone who has watched this team? You should have known it was coming. They are one half wonders, all year long. You just never know which half it will be but definitely ain’t getting 4 quarters from this team on offense or defense. It’s pretty well documented in their play over time. FR isn’t the leader this team now needs. It’s time to move on from him like we did back with diddly-poo Mora.
  6. No, I meant who said the loss was on them? I don’t out people for a typo.
  7. Who is still concerned about another team stealing Flus away from the Colts? With his awesome strategy of one half good and the other half meh/trash, yeah, nobody is taking that on.
  8. At this point, the Colts are just a marginally better version of the Raiders with nicer people in the building.
  9. It’s been about every game, win or lose the games. This team is unable to make correct in game adjustments since FR arrived. It’s either a great opening or closing but when has this team done both? I think people have to come to terms with Frank Reich being just a middle of the road, really likable type of guy? If this team were to win a SB under his leadership, it would be a flipping miracle. That’s not a post game rant, I’ve been harping on him since last season when he continued to ride JB in spite of a garbage output of play. Too loyal, too stubborn, given more credit for fantastic play ca
  10. Cant disagree too much here. All we need is no penalties from these two new position players at tackle whoever it is and to give just enough interference to allow a gap for a RB or a split second for the quick 3 step drop pass.
  11. Based on showing an increasingly poor output in yards given up as well as points and big plays over the past 4-6 weeks? I wished I could share in your enthusiasm for the middle of the pack (at best) defense. you watch your filthy mouth sir lol Anything is possible in an NFL game for certain. We need to see a score from the defense in pick 6 or fumble recovery for 6 and a few take aways. What can’t happen, this defense can’t allow long, time sucking drives against them for points. Flus has to be brilliant in this game plan specifically. He not only needs to come out of the gate
  12. I liked Pascal over his career so far, he is an overachiever. A physical guy and works harder than others. Stays healthy too iirc. The question is, what really is he? Is he a comparable #2/3 or is he a product of others making plays and the defenses forgetting about him? 1. TY 2. Pittman 3. Campbell 4,5,6 pascal, Pittman, Dullin, Harris (btw, is Harris on the team still?) It will be nice to keep him but I’m. It sure he will ever be that #1/2 guy for the team so as long as his $$ reflects that, I’d be fine having him back for a 3-4 yr deal.
  13. I agree. I’m definitely not one who is on this Flus is gonna get a head coach job because he is so awesome. He has shown to have many warts on his resumé. He needs to play a smart but aggressive game plan. Zone coverage seems to get them killed and driven on for long drives. Aggressive has potential for mistakes but either score quick or out. Just needs to get his guys disciplined to play aggressive.
  14. Just reading the post game and looking at the stat sheet. it appears D Buck had an excellent game Our kicker can hit past 50+ JT has a nice avg/run TY came back to earth and I suspect who he really has become Pittman with another penalty and a non factor in the game the Defense may be stout in the run but that pass defense is trash. Are any starters out? D Leonard made a game saving play. Needed the turnover at the end of each game played. That’s not playoff winning football. did AC play today and if so, how d
  15. Has Rhodes been a game changing CB this season? It seems he has been pretty good for sure but his impact isn’t felt like a PR or even a TB or a Buckner. These guys have changed their teams ability. It’s true that TB has a loaded FA team but he has still mostly produced and made into a potential SB contending team.
  16. Agree with all this. I didn’t mean to always have the 3 backs in at once but to see some odd combo packs on some occasions to keep that defense thinking wth are they going to try with This combo, that would be great. Give me some creativity that McVay and Payton has shown and Reid and Shannahan as well. Maybe we just haven’t pulled out the guns yet. Let’s hope they have them built.
  17. Can you imagine the creative sets the offense could have used with Mack, JT and Hines on the field together? I seen that play with Hines and JT together for the score in the wildcat formation (I think) and that was creativity I hoped for that hasn’t really been seen here as much with Reich. it’s possible that FR has used JT sparingly because he was such a workhorse in college. Give him a slower entrance in while also allowing him to play longer into the playoffs with less wear on his body. With 3 reg season games to go and the playoffs looming, it’s now time to have JT play the cowbe
  18. I’d think the team would have to have some degree of him on film outside 4-5 snaps to determine Q has what it takes to transition into a solid/spectacular LT. That takes a new skill set to take on those pass rushing ends with tons of speed and agility. If anyone on the team has the capability to transition over there, it would be big Q but I too have my doubts that he would be as successful at LT as he has at LG in his time. I’ll follow this thread for others analysis of Q and what they saw Sunday.
  19. I found it interesting to hear that Henry was ranked # 2 in speed this week and JT and Hines were 3&4 respectively. That 2 fast horses on our team and JT isn’t little. That Henry dude is unreal with size to speed ratio though. Dang!!
  20. CAn you call them and get them to be more aggressive lol
  21. If this team wants to improve on its passing defense, they are going to HAVE to figure out a way to get consistent pressure and sacks on these teams. Houston with 3 sacks last week show that was definitely an anomaly and not the season norm. Turay sounds like he isn’t fixed and imho, he may never be from that ugly injury he had. Hopefully, his is more playing shape and needing reps but from post game comments, it sounds like he doesn’t have the burst that makes him special. Now he is just a guy and a smaller guy at that. We just seem to have a bunch of guys who hasn’t progressed as a pass
  22. So is this type of changing plays at the line something new for rivers so far this year? Has he been changing plays at the line all year and it just not work out as well as it should or is this seemingly a new action?
  23. True but again, has anyone asked that question to the coach? We can all assume that’s the case but when PM played, he was easily able to dissect the defense and put the team in the right play, pass or run at least. We have seemed to come to the line with a stacked box of iirc from the board reports and we still ran the ball. You can’t tell me that Rivers isn’t capable of detecting a stacked box and staying with the run? That tells me he isn’t given full authority to change plays at the line. Maybe they’ve changed that up from early in the season, I don’t know.
  24. Lol that’s good stuff for a dysfunctional team.
