  1. We can make lots of excuses. Fact is 211 yards before any defensive player touched an Colt player. Our defensive line was blown off the ball more than half the time. Holes that you can drive a tractor trailer thru are not corrected with a tweak. Let's not forget that they completed pass after pass to wide open receivers. This was a massacre. The defense has been pretty good except for New England and , of course, last week. New England took advantage of our inexperience with Mosely out. Last week was something different. We didn't react poorly, overrun, or take a bad ang
  2. Good Move. Get a good read on Mike White against another top defense. Best chance to evaluate offense against a top defense. Need to be concerned about development of Elijah Moore, Michael Carter too. Wilson would be rushing back. Unlikely to succeed against a Buffalo defense at this point. Give him the extra week. Better to ease him in versus Dolphins, Texans and Eagles. Best case, we develop a franchise quarterback with a solid #2. That's what winners have.
  3. It's more than the move upstairs. Lafleur scripted the first 15 plays each week. In the first 6 games, that script was a disgraceful failure. It was conservative and predictable. This week, he came out throwing. He was unpredictable, creative and aggressive. Zach Wilson struggled but LaFleur was definitely not helping him at all. Who knows why? Let's hope LaFleur starts earning that rep as an offensive genius. Until this week, his offense was unwatchable. Further, it seemed he didn't even dial up until the second half.
  4. Mike White played one game at a stellar level. It doesn't mean anything unless he repeats it again and again. If, hypothetically, he torches Indy and puts a real scare in Buffalo against their top rated defense, I wouldn't take him out. New England built a dynasty on a backup quarterback taken in the 6th round named Brady. Dallas had a nice run with an undrafted quarterback named Romo. It doesn't happen often but you never know. Zach Wilson is not ready. He's had 6 starts to show growth and was not progressing. The game is too big for him at this point. That's why he misses wide o
  5. If you think we are going to the playoffs, you're kidding yourself. If not, they need to get a solid read on every player who has the talent to contribute down the line. How many bad interceptions and wide open receiver missed by Wilson but they run him out there again and again. Who said quarterbacks need time to develop but wide receivers are ready to go? All I know is good things happen when they get the ball in his hands. That's why you don't give up on him so fast.
  6. Let's be fair. The defense is being crushed , physically by an inept offense. You realize Atlanta had 24 plays to 6, starting the game? Finally, our DC needs be better. If you called a lot of soft zones and a veteran shreds it consistently, you either have no confidence in your talent or are too stupid to adjust. How do you have a defensive end on a TE, scoring 2 touchdowns? Last, these horribly penalties on 3rd down are killing them. Atlanta had a touchdown and 2 field goals on penalties called after successfully defending 3rd down. None of these glaring errors o
  7. I think Moore is more effective in the slot. Can see him wreaking havoc with his YAC ability. We need playmakers and Moore has that skill. I like Crowder and Berrios, but they are are not scaring anyone. Like to see more of Mims at the wideout too, for the same reason.
  8. Offensive game plan in 1st half stinks. Very conservative and predictable. Puts then in too many 3rd and longs. Open it up. We're not going anywhere this year. Try some things early. If you were the other team and saw how badly Wilson struggles, would you let the Jets establish a running game? They need to burn them in the passing game early. Back the linebackers and safeties up. That will open up some running lanes. We have ZERO passing yards in total over 5 games in the first quarter!!!!! Think anyone respects our passing game? Lafleur needs to let it rip.
  9. Until he matches up against a top # 1 receiver, it will be hard to tell if he can be a #1 corner. Regardless, he looks like a solid corner, who could be a top #2 at worst. Next step is for him to jump a few routes and get some big turnovers. Definitely a pleasant surprise so far.
  10. I like both in different roles. Mims can stretch the field and get open. Moore can make big plays when he gets the ball in his hands in the open field. Mims hasn't gotten a real chance yet. Moore was hurt but has explosive potential. He was wide open for a big play all the way across the field in the 4th quarter. Zach didn't see him. Jet receivers don't get separation. Mims and Moore have the ability to stretch the coverage. Their speed would create better opportunities for Corey Davis. Cole is a solid #3 wideout and Crowder is a solid possession receiver. It's too easy for
  11. I am very concerned with the number of wide open receivers and easy passes he has been off target on, many with good protection. Interceptions happen but you have to hit the wide open plays at least 90 % of the time. He's getting little help from the lousy 1st half offensive calls and the dropsie prone receivers. Can anybody adjust to the throw? Other teams catch balls a little behind or adjust to the throw.
  12. Say what you want. On a team when offense is scarce, the guy stretches the field. He gets open. He makes plays. He's in the doghouse, but it's time to get over it. We need playmakers and he will pull the linebackers and safeties deeper and free up opportunities for others. Some of those runs might be more successful if the linebackers had to drop in coverage. None of the other receivers scare anybody. Davis is a classic #2. Elijah Moore has potential but is still green.
  13. Getting a little concerned with Coles. He was very close to Chad and always made it on the field. From the day Chad was replaced, his leg injury became to painful to play. Alright, it happens. Now, we have a new QB, Coles friend is gone, and Coles is not playing and not practicing. It could be losing Pennington. It could be he's angry over not getting a contract extension. All I know is we need this guy to get reps with Favre and it's not happening. Holding him out of the exhibitions doesn't matter. Not practicing, matters. Cotchery is getting locked in. The Giants defense was beaten
  14. That's it in a nutshell. If Clemons can't beat out Chad, the point is moot. Chad is a measuring stick for Clemons. If you want to be a starter in this league, you have to play better than this. If he can't, he's not the answer. Chad may look ugly out there but he'll win 8 to 9 games on this team with this schedule. If Clemons stinks, he'll lose more than he wins. Remember how painful last year was? I'm rooting for Clemons but if he can't beat out Chad, I want a chance to win. Even if it looks ugly.
  15. We lost 7 games by less than 5 points. The defense will be better. The schedule is weaker. Favre could get us to the playoffs. The only question is the Patriots. Do you think they fear our offense. Favre threatens their serious weakness in the secondary. Has the savy to beat a Belicheck game plan. Don't know about a super bowl, but we'll be alot more dangerous. Ask yourself, can Chad threaten the New England secondary? Can Clemons beat a Belicheck game plan that baffles Peyton Manning? If Favre is available, they have to get him. Whether we win, 8, 9, or 11 games, make t
