Thread: Blow It Up!!!!

    Re: Blow It Up!!!!



    Scam Cameron and Dean Piss have to go. I'm for bringing Flacco back for a short term deal and drafting a QB prospect to groom, but if Flacco is still looking to get paid like the elite QB he's not, he can go too.

    Re: Blow It Up!!!!

    Blow it up and replace Harbaugh with who, exactly? Who should be brought in? I wanna hear your ideas.


    The problem with this team that no one is mentioning is the lack of talent. Our offensive line consists of one elite player (Yanda), an average LT, two rookies and a 15 year veteran. The secondary has one elite CB (Webb), a solid SS, an aging and unreliable FS and a serious of scrubs. Ray is old, McClain and Ellerbe are substandard, Ayanbadejo cannot cover. The defensive line is relying on aging journeymen (Kemoatu) and recent, late round draft picks. Compare that to the Houston Texans or the Denver Broncos.


    For several seasons, we had a very good core of players that went under the radar and performed well; Grubbs, JJ, Redding, Scott, McAllister, Price and Gregg all spring to mind. As happens to lots of good teams, the salary cap has caught up with us and we are being forced to rely on several stars and hope that substandard players can perform at an average level.

    I'm not saying that this team is falling apart and that we should blow it up (although it needs to be said that the coaching isn't as good as it needs to be). Next year we should get various players back from injury, we should see improvement from some of the youngsters and can hopefully use the draft (or even free agency!) to improve the team. Flacco, Rice, Smith, Suggs, Webb and Ngata are have many years left in them, but the talent level simply isn't good enough this year to compete with the elite of the AFC.

    He may be losing the team. It almost happened earlier this year, he might have lost already or close to doing so.

    In Joe's first 2 - 3 years in the NFL, he would throw the ball away when the play wasn't there.

    It's not Joe, it's the way he's been coached. Get rid of Cam and bring in an OC who understands that in today's NFL it is paramount to design and run a scheme that is predicated on getting the ball out of the QBs hand immediately--no more than 4 seconds (unless it's a designed or improvised rollout--which is another part of Joe's game that we swa early in his career that has since been coached out of him)

    Pees...jury is out. I can live with him another year if Cam is gone. In fairness losing Redding, Suggs, Webby, JJ, Ellerbe, Ray, Smith blah blah seems like more than just a convenient excuse for the lack of performance.

    What quality coach would want to come here and take over this team knowing that 4 or 5 straight years in the playoffs is not enough?
    I disagree. When we played the Eagles and they lost their starting center, he didn't put any pressure on the new guy coming in. Today, the 'skins lost RG3 and he didn't put any pressure on the rookie replacing him. No killer instinct at all. Its almost as if he feels sorry for tham and wants to give them a chance.

    So basically when he wins its cause "he walked into a good situation" and when they lose its because "the clueless bastard is being exposed for his lack of X and O's understanding" .... You serious????

    Great situation? You mean a team with no starting QB worth a damn (Boller). A team coming off a losing season? A team that several other desired candidates looked at and said....ehhhh no thanks (Garrett among others)...
    You mean that good situation?

    Yea there was talent here, particularly on the D side of the ball. Saying it was a some kind of cushy job is just putting a revisionist spin on the job. IF you consider the injuries, the offensive struggles etc...I would say Harbaugh has had a rough year but despite that is still 9-4.

    Take off the purple glasses for a second, my friend, and think for a minute - two weeks in a row, our D has been taken to the proverbial woodshed by a 37 year old, third string Qb, and this week by a backup QB who threw the game saving TD, and also running it in for a two pt conversion. This is NOT about supporting the team, but rather 'seeing the light'! The Manning Bros are coming to town, and you better get ready for some serious offense by the opposing team!

    Let's not completely forget that Ozzie had a huge role to play in building this thin, old, marginally talented team.

    Ding. This team just doesn't have a lot of talent right now. I disagree about Ellerbe being below average though. He's been a beast when he plays.

    OK, I get it: Harbaugh is safe because of his post-season record. I get it. But Cam was the OC for each of those seasons, right? I don't like where this is heading, but if it works for Harbaugh, why NOT for Cam, too?

    I said welcome to the new Eagles when HARBs arrived.

    Bingo. I wonder what the Ravens would be like if Chuck had stayed.
