Re: Jordan Love - Senior Bowl

Yup, disappointing how it worked out. RB fumbled the ball away on one of his possessions. One of the first comments was about JL's decision on one of his early plays, the RPO. That seems to be a the question W/JL. His decision making. They had a discussion late in the game where one guy said JL had ...

Re: Jordan Love Analysis

It's not a big deal what the McShay's and Kiper's of the world say. There are hits and misses that come to mind. One that sticks out because it hits close to home, both of them shredded the Seahawks for drafting not only Bobby Wagner but Russell Wilson as well. Someone will take Jordan in the first...

Re: Jordan Love Analysis

The Senior Bowl is huge for Love. He can really improve his stock. I'll say that if he really kicks a$$? He'll have a legit shot at the second round. Otherwise he stays in the 3-4 range. Only reason I don't think he has a shot at the first round is that too many people have said he a little rough an...

Smith better look in the mirror before he makes comments about other people. He looks disengaged. Teams take on the personalities of the coach, right? Those kids might be reflecting his attitude. Something is clearly wrong. It's his responsibility to fix it not complain about it. If it's injuries? S...

Re: Sanford headed to Minnesota

I'm not a Sanford fan by any means. Our coaching staff hurt us this year IMHO and that includes GA. I guess GA couldn't fire himself, so this was the next best option. Sanford probably realized he was screwed when someone decided to leave in Yost's offense instead of allowing him to install his own.

Re: A Synopsis of the Defensive Scheme Argument

The defensive scheme is most obvious when you count players typically dedicated to stopping the run game. Players "in the box." We played 4-3 or 3-4? you have 7 big guys "in the box." You go 4-2 or 3-3? Only 6 big guys are on the field. You see a trend now for teams to take advantage schemes leaning...

I'm not in the 1st round bandwagon. That might be because I saw all his mistakes. That's almost as bad as only seeing his highlights.

Love had his best game of the season. Too bad it took all year for that to happen. He pretty much slept through the year. That's coaching. I thought early on he needed some discipline.

Yea, that was a strange decision at the end. Our special teams aren't really that good where you put the "game" on them. How many missed game winners and how many returns against us? I didn't like that onside kick decision but we made 4 other turnovers during the game that were all equally bad.........
