No.  He sucks, has sucked, continues to suck, and until they get someone else, it will be a mindless reputation, by the team, QB, and fans....lol. 

 

I'm his harshest critique, but would love for him to light it up, make crisp throws, read the d, call audibles, and go through his progressions..... For the last two quarters.

Have fun being negative. Hey it's a forum so say he sucks 1000 times. At this point I who should care really. lmao . Some have a weird definition of sucking. To me sucking is Curtis Painter for example.

It's the scheme.  Outdated. Eberflus isn't Reich guy.   I would make a change like KC did last season and now their D is coming around.  Absolutely hate this scheme.  Good QB eat our lunch. 

Scheme doesn't seem to be able to adapt to not having stud PR.....that's the biggest issue I have with it, seems like it's impossible or hard to disguise coverages or blitz outside of 23

Why does Marlon look like Gale Sayers some weeks and a 3rd string JV High School player in others? I'm honestly perplexed. 

 

Some teams sell out to stop the run. And some teams, like the Jags this year, can’t even stop the run when they know it’s coming.

If Ron Rivera doesn’t get a HC job, we’ve got to look at him for DC, IMO

Which weeks did he flame out against other than top flight run defenses? Honest ?  I can't remember..... He struggled more once teams found out our best passing game option was a lateral....it seemed anyway

Hadn't thought of that, but I'd be down for that.  I know Carolina used to run 3/4, not real sure we would want to shift gears yet again on d..... But I thought Rivera was a 4/3 guy originally for some reason.....must be remembering buddy Ryan days, not 4-3

Can't argue with that lol.

 

Just seems to me like some weeks he's stuff arming dudes to the ground, hitting holes with authority, and elite looking, and in other games he seems average at best...idk, maybe it's all in me head, mate.

I've thought of this and echoed the same thing, the D has regressed not creative, proactive and aggressive in so many levels.  Flus just regressed as well, the D appears not motivated, could be part of not making the playoffs nothing motivates them to play for the prize....Sad!!

Panthers do run a 4-3 but Rivera coached a 3-4 with the Chargers and 4-3 with Bears, he’s done it all

Most players don't like playing in this scheme.

The only problem is that it is not all on eberflus. Ballard want this scheme

    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
    • Supplement with draft picks. Ballard has had a few rookies playing significant snaps every year...so we could assume the same this year. Plus...you have some  younger players who could take a step forward next season.  Also...there’s player for player swaps that can be explored.   I think you could easily replace everyone on that list except Houston and Rhodes. And I would keep MAC as a cheap TE2.   A big FA contract will put a strain on the cap...which is why a rookie QB would be huge. But I also think this is their chance to spend on a premium non-QB position or two.   But another way to burn cap space is to re-sign a bunch of outgoing vets...essentially paying more money for the same team components (in many cases). If that was a list of FAs...I would probably be interested in a few of them at most. But that’s just me...and I am sure other teams will be interested in each of them on some level...so this seems like a great chance to shift some cap space to quality (instead of quantity) and accrue some comp draft capital...even if it’s mid-late Day 3 picks.
    • Ok.   Appreciate the response.   I thought you were going to say they were typo’s, but apparently not.   Alright, we see it differently.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s what makes the world go around.    Thanks again....
    • Some team will gamble on Hooker. He will only be 25 and he’s a former lottery pick with huge talent. A $7M AAV would put him just inside the top 15...just ahead of guys like Ricardo Allen, Vonn Bell and Tre Boston. I think a team would look to lock in a second year team option of sorts...but maybe not. Either way...he should have suitors and will have an opportunity to at least get a good one-year deal to rebuild value. Edit: Obviously this is assuming Hooker has recovered and can pass a physical. If not, then he probably gets half that and possibly might not even be signed until during the season.    Rhodes was a top 10 player last season...at a premium position. He produced a ton of value on his cheap pillow contract...and now he gets to cash in. With a very good track record (even at his age), he is going to command a nice 2-3 year deal to finish out his career. A $12M AAV would pay him just outside that top 10 range for CBs...and this deal is similar to the one that Haden signed with PIT after having a late-career resurgence.  Knowing Ballard...I am sure he would structure it in a way that they could get out after one year if Rhodes fell apart. But given the current state of the CBs...they almost have to re-sign him.
