Moving the ball, but JB still can't throw a wr open.... They all have to stop and wait to get the ball....

It's called sitting in the open spot of a zone.  All receivers do that.  That's how you get open.  Run through a seam in the zone or sit and wait in an open area.

He's done a good job. Injuries are killing them right now. The starting QB quit at a time they had little time to adjust.  But he has made some mistakes too, like sitting on all that cap money and not spending it on O and D depth. Firing the Oline coach after a highly successful season.  Too many people have overrated this roster.  This is a middle of the road team. 

Correct. Like sitting on that cap money. Ballard doesn’t really deserve praise, he hasn’t proven anything. I’ll give him time, but her certainly doesn’t deserve accolades yet. Reich as well. They had a nice season last year with an all world QB. Jacoby isn’t all world. I’ve watched this team for decades (just remembered my login lol) They are very far away. Remember when they were really good it was still hard and got only 1 chip. 
 

They are an average team so be it.

He looked unstoppable for a year, and rightfully so.... He def. Lived up to the early hype.... Long term? We'll see.... Pretty sure the rest of the league liked what Ballard did early too, not just fans who grew weary of grigs dumb %

Grigs just became so arrogant after the successful season and killed any hope of regaining respect of the team and then lazy and complacent with that really nice (at first) first draft. The rest of his time was awful and the success of the team got worse only to be capable because of Luck. Grigs definitely deserved to go and probably 2-3 too late. Some of Reichs choices and some of the picks of CB is starting to look questionable at this point. Time will tell.

I’m curious as to why  Wilkins in inactive and Williams is active. I didn’t think Wilkins had been to bad with the touches he has received.

Wilkins injured

    • Think he is saying odds are better then zero he starts which leaves us in a range from .1 to 99.9...lol
    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
