The Inconsistent Eleven? Blue Charmin? Everyone's already forgetting we made Minshew look like a surgeon. We've played 3 bottom ten OLs, and today one without two starting tackles, and

How about the "It's to early to name our defense" defense?  Just a suggestion.  We played the Jags, the Vikings, and the Jets.  Hardly the top of the heap when it comes to offensive powerhouses.  I lo

I asked the Washington Football Team and they suggested "Indianapolis Defensive Unit".

It's all relative.  A defense doesn't have to shut down a really good offense in order to positively affect the outcome of the game.  Merely slowing them down is often enough to do the trick.

 

But that's why the offense is going to have to do its part in putting points on the board.  We're going to need more Red Zone TD conversions than we got against the Bears if we're going to win -- 19 pts. probably wouldn't get it done against a Top 5 offense.

Like I said, doubt we do it. I'll be happy with a win. I do want to see the O be given a chance to be more creative. I think they will have to be.

That's just it. We know its early, and we know our rankings will change sooner than later. Which is why we need a name before we're exploited by the better offenses.  haha :cheer: :headspin:

 

Btw, I'm liking Blue Steel, Blue Wave so far. Lol

It’s way too early but I’ll play along.  How about the Cover Blue?   Mike drop. Lol

So what’s yalls nickname for this great defense?

You mean the one that only gave up 23 points to a team that had been averaging 40pts/game? While not having their best player.

Quoting myself.  But not waaay overrated.  
 

Let’s admit it, Baker is good. 

I mean, I guess any sub par QB would look like a superstar when you have 4 seconds to throw to Austin Hooper OBJ Jarivs Landry and David Njoku and still throw two picks.

Let me axe you folks sumthin.  Had I told you this team would have a top 10 defense before the start of the season, would you have been happy with that?  Cause they do.  So I'm starting to think of nicknames for the offense.  The defense is fine.  And the ST might be the best unit of the three.

Mayfield had a 72.7qb rating in the game.

 

Hardly looking like a superstar.

 

We lost by 9. Safety(2) and pick 6(7).

 

Its a tie game.

 

One 3rd and 9 stop away from getting ball down 6 and having a chance to drive and win the game.

 

With most important defensive player out and probably 3rd or 4th most important offensive player out.

Still, nobody has reached the 400 yard mark on this defense.  And they just played arguably a top 5 offense.  And gave up 23 points.  The most they've given up since week 1.

 

How about (in a New York cab driver accent) "Hey, how 'bout a lil' help from the offense" Defense?

I mean I was kind of being sarcastic, but it was very subtle sarcasm.

If thats how u want to look at it.  I see it a different way. They played like trash in the 1st half. It forced Reich to get away from their game plan and lean of Rivers more. Stats dont always tell the story.

Same math we used with vinny last year lol.  You're right tho, aside from rivers it wasn't as bad as it looks.  I'm still optimistic but rivers has to be better.

Fair enough.  We see it different ways.  It's a discussion board.  What's new?  LOL

    • Oh yeah, I’ve read both of the SI Easterby features. More than once lol. Like I said, this is a guy I was hearing about 5 years ago or so when the Brady breakup rumors first started as a source of division in the Patriots organization. I thought that was so out of the ordinary for the Patriots to have a guy who wasn’t a coach or an executive whose name kept popping up when describing the growing rift(s) within the organization.    Somehow he got hooked up with McNair and he’s actually had a bunch of different job titles with the Texans, but all indications are that these major decisions are all being influenced by him, and him alone.    The hiring of Culley is definitely curious. The Ravens WR coach. The Ravens aren’t exactly known for having a stellar receiving corps. I talked to a die hard Ravens fan last night about him and he is indifferent to his departure at best. He told me that before coming to Baltimore Culley was in Kansas City in the same role the season the Chiefs went without a WR scoring a TD.    It really feels like this hire, and the Caserio one are because those guys are going to know their roles under him because they’ve bought the snake oil memberships from him.    And you brought up Andre Johnson about the same time I did. He’s been kind of a goodwill ambassador for the Texans in recent years, but even he’s raising the red flags as far as Easterby is concerned.    And you nailed it on Watson. McNair had told him that he would be involved in the process. Right or wrong is for conjecture. But McNair told him that he would be involved. Only to days later start making decisions that were news to Watson when they broke. They literally lied right to his face in real-time. When was the last time a team jerked their legitimate All Pro quarterback around like that? When was the last time a quarterback of Watson’s status went from being the franchise cornerstone at the end of the season to officially requesting a trade less than a month later? (Watson has made it officially official this morning.)   And what has been the one thing constantly mentioned in connection with all of it?   Easterby.    See? It’s an easily fascinating story once you start peeling the layers of the onion away.      The Palcic case is definitely weird, too. When that happened many in the media who worked with her through the years cited her as one of the better PR folks to deal with in the league.   Despite that she was just out of the blue fired one day. Because she was “no longer a cultural fit”. I mean a PR office has a lot of diverse tasks, but I don’t think conforming to a “cultural fit” is one of them. The PR office doesn’t have enough to do with actual football operations to need to fit anything.    Last I heard she was considering legal action over the termination.    It’s just another one of those instances where Easterby’s name comes up, and there’s a negative aura around it. 
    • Yep. Watson would be out of the division and conference, will be nice.   He will prefer SF or WFT over Broncos and Jets, IMO. Unlike SF, WFT's Dan Snyder is crazy enough to give up 3 first rounders while SF might just give the Texans 2 first rounders and Jimmy G in a swap. WFT really has no one to give in a swap.
    • That place is on fire putting it lightly. Everything seems to be stemming from this Easterby guy, seems to have some sort of influence on Mr Mcnair. Lot of people wondering how you go from a religious figure to an NFL advisory role directly into an owners ear.....make your own assumptions the word brainwash is out there haha. The racism thing is real too.
    • Predicted this last night in the Cully thread.   The perfect out come he is traded to SF is and out of conference and Stafford is traded to Colts and is out of conference.  
    • I think SF would be a frontrunner over the Jets for one of Watson's destinations.   Mahomes is a hindrance for the Broncos to go after him or Stafford, IMO. WFT is a dark horse and Dan Snyder is stupid enough to mortgage 3 first rounders and 3 second rounders for Watson, IMO while I feel his market value should settle down at 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders. Jimmy G definitely is slightly better in a swap than Drew Lock as well, IMO.
