  1. When push comes to shove we are just not the better team when it matters...49ers huge comeback and falling short at the end of the game...falling short in NO on 4th and goal to lose the game...giving up a 80 yard TD drive to Ryan Tannehill and a mediocre Fins offense to lose the game There is a trend here and I don't like it...And before anyone gives me the Matt Ryan has more 4th quarter comebacks than anyone since he joined the league...ask yourself the question, why do we need so many comebacks? Cuz we can't put away anybody or we blow huge leads
  2. Yea that pissed me off...it was goal to go so why not use your timeouts and save as much time for your offense...either they kick a FG and you give your offense time to go back and score a FG...or they score a TD and you give your offense time to go back and score a TD...either way we were going to need to score IF we were playing to WIN and NOT TO LOSE
  3. The way we come out and play in the 2nd half pretty much every week is a disaster...most of this blame falls on all of the coaches...but i've defended Smitty for 5 years and don't have the energy or the conviction to back him up anymore
  4. Agreed...Pats aren't even playing well but still 3-0...They beat us by two scores on primetime
  5. How many teams has this been the case the past 5 seasons
  6. Guys, don't laugh...that was the best coverage he has played in his entire career
  7. You can vent all you want but the NFL isn't going to stop letting fans into the draft...and why would they when fans are willing to pay money for a ticket?
  8. Completely disagree...the NFL is geared towards fan enjoyment...the draft is what most people consider the start of the new football season...plus, all the players that were getting booed are about to sign contracts for millions of dollars...so i dont feel too bad that they had to be booed and i dont think they care either.
  9. I agree that the Browns had a rough go of it...They have a lot of issues and they are going for the quick fix, but i dont expect there offense to be much better with a rookie QB and a rookie RB. Plus, Weeden will have to produce almost right away due to his age.
  10. Not a whole lot of news here. Smith and the organization are obviously going to state that they are commited to players on our current roster. The only time we will see this change is the day they are actually cut (if it happens)
  11. What do you think the bounty was on Sean Payton when Jimmy Graham knocked him out of the game?
  12. As a Miami Alum i would be all for this...Finally give me a Miami (OH) player to root for outside of that trash QB in Pittsburgh. I can see why people are against drafting O-lineman, but I feel a lot of that sentiment is based upon our unsuccessful past drafts in regards to that position. Quality O-lineman usually don't reach FA because they are so difficult to find, and if they do hit FA they will be expensive. Have to infuse this team with talent on both sides of the trenches.
  13. OP is criticizing posters who don't want to bring back our free agents who may be overpriced, but he throws zero ideas out of his own.
  14. Abe - let walk (don't need to cut he is FA) Grimes - let walk (don't need to cut he is FA - wants too much) Lofton - keep (only at around $6.5/year - if he wants more than walk) Babinaux - keep (would save money on our cap but we can't lose all of our talent) Jerry - keep (doesn't save us any money to cut him) Ovie - cut (save too much money not too) Decoud - keep Baker - Cut This would give us a lot of room with Abe, Grimes, Ovie, Baker gone to upgrade our O-line, DT, and a cheaper DE as Abe seems like he is as good as gone.
  15. I think our O-line was worse than people think...you can't look at sack numbers as ryan did a pretty decent job just throwing the ball away and avoiding the sack...we tried reynolds, hawley, and baker all at RG and neither of them showed they can play at the NFL level...Svitek didn't allow many sacks, but certainly struggled at points and did not play well in the playoff game. I think we need a RG and a LT...Jury is still out if Hawley can replace Mcclure at C
  16. I really think the FO tried to get him signed, but the money is too far apart. It's his last contract and he wants $8-$10M/year. It's too bad we were never able to surround him with any talent, otherwise he could have been even better. He has been a big part of our success and he will be missed.
  17. I think if we add a DT to provide some pressure up the middle with Edwards fully healed from his surgery combined with Nolan's system we could easily do without Abe. I would give him around $5 M/year at this point and no more
  18. I am more skeptical about the Turner listing than I am the Abe...Turner's production relies heavily on the play of the O-line, which was poor for a majority of the season, but i do think he is overrated even though he led the NFC in rushing. Abe didn't have much help this year (let alone previous years), but the write-up on him is dead on...racks up numbers against poor teams and disappears in big games.
  19. Nolan has gotten a lot of great seasons from DE's with a lot less talent than Abe so I am not too concerned about the need to re-sign Abe. He has earned the right to go after whatever he can get. He owes this team nothing. We were never able to surround him with much or any talent, especially up front.
  20. Walterfootball.com list of their top 10 overrated NFL players. Atlanta has one of the top 10 (don't really agree with), and another that got strong consideration. Again, not my list, just something to read: http://walterfootball.com/mostoverratednflplayers.php
  21. Abraham is going to chase after every dollar he can get with this being his last contract before retirement and i don't think anyone can blame him. In my opinion, he isn't worth the $8 million, but i think a lot of teams will agree. He may go looking for top dollars but may find that the market for an aged DE who only racks up sacks against a surrendered Jags and Bucs team isn't worth $8 million.
  22. If you saw the post-season media session with Arthur Blank, you would know that he is not thinking that at all...and he is the one signing Koetter's, Hill's, and TD's checks.
  23. The odds of both of these guys turning out to be solid, starting caliber players, is very unlikely...maybe one of them, but if we go in to this season with our hopes on sid and matthews it will be a long season. Sid can be our JPP - come on now...JPP is elite, game-changer, freak. Sid finally cracked his way onto the field this past season.
  24. Somehow the discussion has gone to "is his play declining" to "should we let him walk," which are completely separate questions. I think it is evident that his play is starting to decline, but obviously due to the lack of talent and proven players behind him on our roster currently i, and many others, believe we should resign him
  25. Abrahams production is declining - there is no way around that truth...we should still try to bring him back for another year, but im certainly not going to pay the guy like a top 5 or top 10 DE
