GAME ON THE LINE 2 WEEKS IN A ROW WE GO TO DAVIS AND SMITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!   BOWLES NEEDS TO GO FITZPATRICK NEEDS TO GO GAILEY NEEDS TO GO

Bowles just blasted Devin Smith

That's cowardly. There are so many things that have gone wrong with this team, and not just this week. So the player he singles out by name, through all this, is a rookie? How many passes have his expensive starting WRs dropped (Marshall in particular)? Plus the coaching gaffes. And he picks on a rookie? "These rookies get paid just like everybody else." First of all, no they do NOT get paid like the veterans are getting paid. Second, the very comment suggests if only the rookie(s) would play as well as his grossly underachieving veterans, then the team's problems would be solved.

This calling out, from the same HC who just a few days ago laughably suggested an awful Antonio Cromartie earned his starting job this summer, while he was widely reported to be awful before the sucky preseason games.

  • Will Cromartie ever sit if he's healthy enough to go? No. He gets defended because Bowles is the reason Cro is back here at a ridiculous $7M.
  • Will he call out Revis - who doesn't exactly get paid like a rookie despite Bowles' verbal equivalence - for getting his ass handed to him again (after only an errant throw and simultaneous mis-timed jump stopped him from giving up a long TD when he was beaten just as badly against Buffalo)? No. Bowles only offers up the flat, "He gave up a touchdown."
  • Did he call out Fitzpatrick for his multiple games of multiple late picks, or the open receivers he isn't hitting (or isn't even throwing to because of his incurable tunnel vision)? No.
  • Has he publicly gone off on and shown his anger towards Marshall, who's been dropping a key pass or two every game? No. 
  • Has he called out his ultra-talented DL, who have mostly been playing like one-dimensional run stoppers? No.
  • Perhaps he called out his veteran, multi-million dollar bookend tackles? Nope.
  • How about his special teams coach? Nope.
  • His offensive coordinator? Of course not.
  • How about HIMSELF? No freaking way. 

"It's about execution & understanding situational football when it needs to be played. We're not getting it done." Does he or does he not realize that his own words here are an indictment of poor coaching, particularly when he has a mostly veteran team out there on the field? No. 

A rookie wideout. Or the team's rookies in general. That's who gets singled out in his one public showing of angry emotion. Sorry, but that's a pussy move on his part.

Best season ever.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Darrelle Revis has s concussion. 

He's faking. Subjective symptoms are easy to fake, and this is like when he grabbed his hammy after Randy Moss torched him.

He was having a crappy day and wanted off the field, lest he get burned again in the same game.

 

OK, probably not. But maybe, lol.

Guys let's avoid politics. I want to avoid having to lock a game thread.

To be honest, every game that ends with a loss like that should have it's thread locked, archived onto a flash drive, and that flash drive stuffed inside llama's ass, and that llama thrown into a dumpster fire.

Simply the team doesn't appear to show up until they're down a score or 2. Possibly a function AGAIN of  a defense first head coach farming out the offense to a decrepit old man OC. Smith may deserve to be called out, but do it behind closed doors. Singling out 1 guy after this run, and a rookie at that, is crap. Don't want to dress him next week, fine. But this is a bad thing to do.

There are at least four statements in this post that are just patently false.

Which ones? I was on a roll.

Also I didn't actually see the press conference lol.

I figured. He never called out Smith "by name." If anything he went soft on him; he was asked directly about the dropped TD and deflected it with the comment about all the rookies needing to play better. He also very specifically called out Cromartie, Fitzpatrick, and himself. And now, back to the llama memes.

Well, he went off on "rookies" only after a question specifically about Smith's drops but everyone knew who he was talking about. He could have said he's not going to single out anyone, this is a team loss, the blame ultimately falls on him, etc. It comes across like he's pissed off the rookies aren't playing as well as veterans, when rookies rarely play as well as veterans.

Cromartie wasn't any worse today than in games before today. Days ago he suggested Cromartie had "earned" his starting job. Probably also recalling the Parcellsian "Players can't lose their starting job to injuries." (It went something like that).

Fitz's big critique was: "He had turnovers," Bowles said. "You can't have turnovers. I don't think we played great as an offense." So when it was Fitz, after saying the very least he could possibly say about him, he then quickly blurred the criticism lines by mixing Fitzpatrick's poor play with the offense as a whole. Smith - since he's the only rookie truly playing poorly, doesn't benefit from such deflection. Then, of course, he also added he's "still committed to Ryan." Still, he didn't call him out for his multiple games of multiple turnovers, which was what I posted. :) 

Calling out himself rings hollow when he's so busy blaming others. "This guy screwed up, those guys screwed up, and these other guys have to step it up. Oh, and I like have to do a better job and stuff because otherwise the team will get more screwing up from these screwups surrounding me."

When you see how Arizona's rookies are contributing in this game vs. the Bengals, he's right.  Our rookies do need to play better...

Well, hey now, Bowles himself is a rookie so... you know... maybe he's referring to himself? Maybe? I don't know.

 

Prolly not, tho.
