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

Ficken is super pedestrian but it does actually get worse than him. Bring him back for camp on a deal worth a million and change (most of which he wont see a dime of if he's beaten) and keep searching. A fig leaf is better than being naked.

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

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?

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

This argument has been completely debunked.  The discrepancy in runs to passes was due to the 2 min drill at the end of the first half, their difficulty running the ball when they tried, and them getting behind and then trying to catch up.  Now if you want to take issue with where the runs were designed to go, thats another story.  

And fwiw, Gase took over a team that had won 4 games the prior year, had massive injuries and still will win 6 to 7 games.   

Im not a huge Gase fan but just trying to keep it real.

You are clueless??? Gase was the de facto GM?? Mac was the GM during drafts and Free Agency.  Gase took over for three weeks in the Spring and the one move he did was a good trade getting rid of Darren Lee.
