  1. The only problem I have with Quinn (besides the Shanny fire) is the substitutions. We need to put our best 11 out there and the lack of 3 lber sets. I think the D has played decent until today.
  2. Worrilow made the play by catching a ball that was thrown directly to him. He didn't make any outstanding athletic play. He did what he should have done and caught the ball. Glad he made the play BUT his position needs to be upgraded asap.
  3. This guy is way to cute. He needs to go!
  4. ASSUMING the new GM hit on the picks which is a big assumption I wouldn't be opposed to it. I would rather build a great team than invest heavily into 2 good but not great players.
  5. The holding penalty was bad but I agree No Gimmicks you run the ball right there because time off the clock is more important than a fg. After you had one bad thing happen you don't compound it by throwing the ball which could result in an incomplete pass and no time off the clock. I would have preferred a kneel to throwing the ball. All I know is less time equals more pressure on our opponent and you never know what would happen.
  6. Actually doesn't make sense to call the timeout. They were still piled up and additional time would have ran off if we didn't call the timeout... it would have made the Lions hurry with whatever decision they made. If they spiked the ball it would have been hurried...if they rushed out the FG unit it would have been hurried. Either could have led to penalties or Lions' mistakes but the FG attempt would have been from further out no matter which they did. Calling the timeout led to the Lions getting 4 plays in 25 seconds (running play that led to defensive holding and 5 additional yards, kneel, spike and then the FG attempt). As usual we did our best to not put pressure on the other team.
  7. Right there with you. I was physically ill after I left the dome after the NFCG in 2012 and I decided I was too vested in this team. Pretty sure I am done with year.
  8. I was a Nolan fan but I must admit I am tired of him and the whole regimen. This one play sums up my frustration with the D coordinator. On the draw play that started around the 6 the personnel on the field was 4 DL(all DEs- Goodman, Osi, Mass and I believe Kroy), 1 LB (Worrilow) and 6 DBs ( 3 corners and 3 safeties). I said before the play they are going to run it because of the personnel and BAM TD. I have watched this for 3 games now. Stop getting cute and play the best 11. We don't have the talent to do this type of stuff and even if we did you don't do it there. The coaching staff appears clueless. Frustrating!
  9. Decoud has always been horrible. He made the pro bowl because he had 6 ints and they went off stats but if they watched every snap like we do they would know he didn't warrant pro bowl contention. I have never seen a player take the angles he does and do the negative things that don't show up in stats. He is poor in coverage, loses contain when he should force plays inside, miss tackles in the most futile manner ever(I never seen a pro player continually missing tackles at the ankles) and try and jump around contact instead of influencing plays with some physical play(even when the blockers are receivers). I can't figure out how this guy is on the field.
  10. This is amazing. I don't think Blalock is even avg. Even with Sam Baker this line isn't better. You let guys like Clabo(would have played better here) and Dahl go and have this for your line. Still not sold on our young defense though.
  11. I will play. I don't hate TD but I think he is overrated. His 2008 draft was by far his best but it is average at best. Ryan is the only slightly above average to good player from that draft. His 2009 draft gave you only 2 avg football players in Moore and Jerry(avg means they should be on a roster not necessarily starters). His 2010 draft maybe 2 avg again Peters and Weatherspoon. His 2011 draft a good player in Julio and an avg player in Rodgers. His 2012 draft has been horrible no avg players. The 2013 draft looks like 2 avg players again in Alford and Trufant. Even in his decent draft picks can be scrutinized because of what he gave up to get them. Now if you want to look at free agency you can say Gonzo and Turner(held on to him 2 yrs too long) were good but that is it. You also have to look at what he re-signed in Baker, Moore and Decoud and didn't re-sign in Dahl, Clabo, Abraham and Grimes. Like I said I don't hate him but I believe he doesn't warrant high praise and I lean more on the side of not trusting him to fix the lines on this team.
  12. One can only hope and pray but I thought this before and they re-upped him
  13. The fact this guy is still on the field is one of the issues I have with this regimen.
