    slider got a reaction from AUTiger7222 in Just Say No to RM as HC   
    He didn't go for it this week precisely because he learned from last week. Makes no sense to say he made a mistake last week why didn't he make the same mistake this week. Going for it on 4th down is not a choice between 3 points and 6 or 7 points it's a choice between 3 points and one more play. Take the points. He did the right thing in my opinion but he was very close to going for it and called time out to kick it. He also didn't go for it in field goal position later in the game and it resulted in another 3 points. They won by 8. If you subtract any one or both of those FG's you're set up again for the loss. He showed me that he's learning. Last week everyone said, kick the field goal and take the gimme points, this week they say just the opposite. You can't go wrong by taking the points unless you have to go for it.

    See, I would've said just the opposite about Brees and the roughing calls. I guess perception trumps reality.

    What concerns me is how people actually think it's unbelievable that two people with such varying opinions could work together. It used to be what separated us from the rabble.

    I'm not an expert on comp picks but aren't comp picks offset by anyone equivalent you might eventually sign? In other words you don't automatically get a comp pick for Tak. I think they should trade him and not have to worry about it.

    slider got a reaction from egoprime II in Seriously? Seriously? Raheem says he didn't want Matt to take the knee and get hit.   
    Come on guys, what's he going to say that will soothe you guys after the loss.
    He had no way of knowing Gurley was going to make it to the endzone on that carry that I'm sure it was designed to be one of two dive plays before the field goal attempt. Even with that, the word is that it was discussed beforehand which shows at least that there was some coaching awareness of the situation. All this kneel down talk is Monday morning QB stuff. The normal thing is to hand off to the RB for positioning prior to the kick or to at least take an extra play to punch it in for 6. I'll take up by 6 with 1 minute left than down by 2 with 1+ left. Neither Morris or Gurley lost that game, Gurley put them ahead even. Stop somebody. Same thing happened several years ago at the dome vs. the Bears. They scored with 40 seconds left to go ahead and Ryan shredded their defense to win the game. This one's on the defense. 
    Amazing how a guy can be the savior one game and should be fired the next. I'm not necessarily big on Raheem but man, let's remember they have to deal with these decisions in seconds, we can run replays and breakdown every little nuance at our leisure before declaring what should or shouldn't have been done. I was pretty impressed that they had actually discussed the situation beforehand. That shows me that a bit more awareness is there than I saw the past few years with DQ. Also, Raheem said "Obviously if I had it to do over again, we do it differently", DQ would've and did continuously double down and tell us that we could always expect him to be stupid (aggressive in his words). 
    Let's give the guy a chance and realize that he can't control every outcome on the field.

    If you have a serious traffic accident on the way to work, after the fact it appears that not calling in sick was an egregious judgement error!  The error is actually working backward from the result to judge a decision.

    slider reacted to Monolith2001 in Matt Tells Gurley “Don’t Score”   
    So much mindshare spent on whether we should have had Matt take a knee or Gurley should go down.  We lost because our D could not get a stop they knew they had to get.
    QB did what QBs do (check) RB did what RBs do (check) Line blocked like they are supposed to (check) We got 8 points and the lead (check) We stopped them from scoring a touchdown before time expired (fail).
