  1. TD selects Amari Cooper. Dan Quinn dies a little on the inside.
  2. Ryan homer syndrome. Everything is a slight against Ryan.#insecurityissues LOLOL
  3. TD really did a good job convincing the fan base that the 2013-2014 debacle was all Mike Smiths fault. It was Smith's fault that we brought in those players and that it was Smiths fault we neglected DEs.Yet prior to 2013-2014, personnel decisions were made "together"... Snakes will be snakes
  4. LOLOLWe are overdue for a Superbowl like we are overdue for a 0-16 season.
  5. people just feel threatened by him. Either that or just deep jealousy
  6. One day that defense will be gone so it will be up to Wilson but he may have 3-4 rings by that time. It took Brady a few years to finally take over. Wilson's just waiting for his chance
  7. can't wait till they give him a 1a wr and have offense run through himWilson - only does everything
  8. And still throw ball deep when it mattered to win game #boss

  10. Yeah but I don't consider their teams 'tough' teams in terms of physicality. They'd run, but I feel like only after they are up by a decent amount. Or the running game is just working out too well that day. But if the running game is so so, I see them err more on airing the ball out.
  11. Well Belichick is one of the greatest coaches of all time, and I know Brady, who's also greatest of all time, helps alot but I'm more impressed by his ability to adjust and just constantly change the offense up. With Moss and Welker, they aired it out. Then with Gronk and Hernandez he went to mostly two TE sets. Sometimes, Belichick feels like he needs to run the ball 40 times. Other times, he does what you say, substituted running game with short passes.I kinda treat Belichick as an exception.
  12. I mean just think Mike McCarthy, Sean Payton, Chip Kelly, and Andy Reid's teams and how they are built. Not generally known for physicality, ball control, etc...
  13. Impression has always been that DCs like to:-win the trenches -control the ball and clock -tend to be more conservative -preach physicality And thus, that generally translates to running the ball, pounding the ball down the throat, with a physical runner. Plus, ball control always helps out your own defense. I tend to think that OC's are more like -they probably don't preach win the trenches as much -they probably play to score points as opposed to control ball and clock -probably are more aggressive and risky when it comes to playcalling and offense -indifferent about physicality, not a big
  14. I think Austin was smart in pitching Gase as OC, assuming he'd defer to Gase. The risk is the HC starts telling OC to be more ball control, power run, (because that's his background and nature and the culture he wants to set), when our FO wants to air the ball out. Or if that HC in the draft room wants transform the team in one way while the FO wants it to go another way.FO sees the offense going through Ryan, not through a ground game. Ground game will definitely help Ryan but end of the day, it's Ryan to Julio and his many weapons.
  15. Ok that's a good argument and I think that's definitely true. Just annoys me that many people think we need a DC just because our defense sucks. The two are pretty much independent.
  16. Exactly. HC can defer their duties. So it doesn't really matter which position our HC has back ground in. It's more important that his vision, culture, and philosophy aligns with the FOs because that HC can always bring in a good coordinator and defer.
  17. Once again you are using Falcologic. I need it broken down.A bad defense does not necessitate a DC turned HC. There are many examples where a DC/HC has a bad defense and a OC/HC has a bad offense. Please explain to me the link between the two. I need a good cause and effect laid out for me that says, hiring DC as HC will improve defense. Because I don't see it. I see the vision of HC being the same as vision of FO more important. Because a HC can always hire a good DC. It's more important that everyone is on the same page from the top down.
  18. Our defense sucks, we all know that, but with that said, how does hiring a DC as HC make a perfect match? At the end of the day the HC will delegate duties to his DC, so in that respect, it does not really matter if we hire a OC or DC as HC. Rarely does a HC take over a coordinator's duties. What matters is the HC's vision for the team, as that will affect who he brings in as OC/DC. That will affect the culture of the team. Does the HC prefer to run the ball more, pass the ball more? Power run? Zone blocking. Focus on secondary or d-line? Man CBs? Zone CBs? etc... Can someone explain to
  19. That's smart. I'd imagine it would be for FAs that aren't well known so they can get get a shot to at least turn some heads instead of begging some FO to give them a spot at training camp.
  20. That is what I'm thinking. It makes sense given our shift in tone after Packers game in which we bet the farm on Julio. It makes sense when we sign Devin Hester - I don't think it was bad move btw.
  21. With TD/Pioli in FO, we are either hiring a YESMAN, or someone with the same vision as those 2. My belief is that their vision is to build the greatest show on turf with Matt Ryan as a Peyton Manning. Thus, whoever we bring in, must agree with that vision. DCs generally don't envision building a team like the late Colts. They envision building something more along the lines of the Seahawks, 49ers, Ravens, etc...
