  1. Once they surpassed the books, it went downhill and the last season was a joke.
  2. I love that even when it’s a guarantee that they are going to run right up the middle, we still won’t put a second ILB in the game. I just don’t understand the unwillingness to play two ILB’s. We barely did all game.
  3. Week 9 Games

    Luckily we play them after our bye week, albeit on the road. Even if not needed as much as the 49ers, a guy like Sanders is exactly what this offense needs, a quick twitch type of wideout that can get open very quickly. Also, even though Sanders seems like he would be strictly a slot type wideout, he can lineup anywhere and run every route effectively.

    Man, wonder what the result would be if Kingsbury doesn't call that timeout at the end of half when the Cardinals made the 4th down stop.
  5. I was thinking we might try and play man initially. Jaire on Hill, King on Watkins, and Brown on Hardman. With Savage over the top and one of Martinez/Amos/Sullivan on Kelce. Clearly wasn’t the game plan.
  6. While I am happy we came away with the win, I was disappointed with the lack of pressure we put on Moore, especially with them having two starters out on the o-line and another one get hurt during the game. I haven’t seen grades for the game and I know the Chiefs offense can make a lot of people look slow but Preston Smith really looked like he was stuck in the mud out there. I know Pettine likes big edge players and all that but it would be nice to see a quick twitch, speed guy out there just to switch it up some. Somebody better than Fackrell.
  7. Crappy zones, not playing two ILBs on obvious run downs, and not blitzing a guy who was coaching high school football a few months ago. Great defensive plan.

    He looked the same when he got a lot of snaps at Michigan and in the preseason. You could argue that if he was better he would get more snaps. The Smiths are good but they aren’t prime Von Miller or Khalil Mack good where they can’t come off the field. It could actually end up hurting later in the season if they end up wearing down.

    Bradley Chubb looks like a way more fluid athelete in my opinion. I don't think anyone is thinking these are new things, there are a good amount of people who didn't like Gary coming out and didn't want to draft him, myself included. So far, his play has just reassured people like myself of those concerns. This is also a thread about Rashan Gary, I find it strange that nobody is allowed to comment on the current status of his play without being a "hater" or having some kind of "agenda". Some people are discussing evidence that has actually occurred and some people are talking about an imagination they have of what Gary will become.

    I actually agree with that but besides a lack of production, he doesn't look good at all when he is on the field.

    It could easily be both. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

    ummm an entire off-season and preseason with professional coaching. Nobody is saying he needed to be completely transformed but there isn't a single difference.

    I honestly think the whole "athletic freak" thing is kind of overrated with Gary. He might be able to run in a straight line fast and jump high for his size but he doesn't look like a fluid athlete to me, doesn't have any bend, and has a very inconsistent burst. He reminds of a guy i went to high school with that was nerdy growing up and then about Sophomore year in high school he started working out a lot and taking some creatine; he ended up getting big, strong, fast and started for the high school team where he held his own but you could tell he wasn't a natural athlete. I think there is an IT factor that just can't be taught. I am not sure a certain type of bend or fluidity can be taught, nor can a certain type of aggressiveness/tenacity that I am not sure I see in Gary. We will see though.

    I don't think a lot of people expected him to come out and kill it in his first year and if they did, they didn't watch any of his college games. He was the only player I didn't want the Packers to draft honestly because when I watched his college tape, I saw exactly what we are seeing now. I expected him to not be good but I actually expected him to be a little better than he has shown. Even as someone who didn't want to draft Gary, I don't think anyone should throw in the towel until at least two full seasons and I think everyone here hopes he becomes an all-pro player but it is difficult to be optimistic and I think we can still have a conversation about his current play. I also have concerns that there are some things that you just can't teach.

    Talk about a false equivalency.
