Should have been there Week 1. Or any other semi-competent kicker. And we’d be one game out of the 6th seed.

Thanks Mac.

Gase signed Vedvik one week before the season

Myers isn’t having a great season either.  Not signing him wasn’t the mistake.  Not bringing another kicker in to compete with a mediocre Costanzo was the mistake

A mistake that cost us the season

This was Ficken’s first full season as a fg kicker he was not bad I think he can develop

The season?  Are you saying we make the playoffs if we win the first game?  Cause from where Im sitting that would make us 7-8 going into the last game in Buffalo and I dont think even 8-8 is making the playoffs

We would be one game out of the 6th seed going into next week with Buffalo resting it’s starters 

 

yes Gase signing Vedvik cost us the season

Djck nose sticken Sam Ficken could have beaten the Bills week 1 very true. On latest news: Kaare Vedvik has earned employee of the month at Whataburger.

You sure he can dunk the fry basket into the frier without missing it

Gase? not Douglas, the GM? 

Yeah I’m sure Douglas having been here for all of 5 minutes was calling the shots then

Yea, there is no way that the GM (who had been here for 2.5 months, btw) had any say in who the kicker was.

I get that you hate the coach, but some of your posts about Gase are cartoonishly stupid

You could make a better argument that losing Darnold to mono for several games or Mosely for the entire season impacted our won loss record and playoff chances but carry on about the one game the kicking game lost

if i remember correctly Myers helped lose us a game in his Pro Bowl season last year going 1/3 against Houston

We lost Darnold for 3 games 

 

Meanwhile other teams won games with backups and third stringers


and with a healthy Darnold Gase found ways to lose to the crappy Bengals and Dolphins

He came back from Mono in 3 weeks.  That didnt make him completely healthy and back to his normal self. 

We have had our already weak offensive line decimated by injuries-this past weekend we started a guy who had never played the guard position before. And this weekend we are likely starting another third stringer at guard.  The starting 3 inside linebackers are on the DL.   Our CBs are street free agents.  Seems to me we are doing a lot with very little.  

yes Pittsburgh won some games with back up QBs but they have a better overall team surrounding their back ups,  They didnt win with their back ups on Sunday!  Does that mean Tomlin sucks because Gase beat him?

Vic Fangio who sucks won games with both his second and third string quarterbacks

 

the Gase excuse making is in overdrive we are going 7-9 because of an easy schedule

Is it excuse making to acknowledge that our team, which was thin in talent to start with, was further handicapped by major injuries?

Arent the other teams we a re playing and beating NFL teams?  So why the asterisk?     Dont the Raiders, Pittsburgh and Dallas still all have a chance to go to the playoffs?  How do you discount those wins?

Bill Parcells took over a team that went 1-15 and went 9-7.  Gase was de facto GM for much of the offseason so please let’s take it easy blaming Idzik’s 2014 draft for the fact that Gase wanted to throw all day facing the league’s worst run defense in Cincy
