  1. Positives

    I think we might have something in David Montgomery. Even when he was flexed out at WR and ran a go route, he had a step on the corner. That's promising to me moving forward. OL improved but I'm seeing Leno get smacked around by smaller players (blitzing corner, heavier linebacker). That makes me wonder if we'll start seeing more bull rushes against him (not positive but thought came to me as I was typing this) Defense is elite... I feel bad for Nichols getting hurt but if that means more reps for RRH I'm all for it... curious to see how the kid can hold his ground in the run game. Eddie Money is the goods (he said that's his favorite nickname)
  2. In looking at this from a micro perspective, I think Nagy was protecting Mitch from Vic Fangio and Denver's environment (fans, fatigue etc). And guess what? We won. Hell of a job by Nagy. I think they're going to start opening it up more against weaker defenses. It's not ideal but we have to remember the name of the game right now is stacking W's.
  3. This is fair. I'm seeing a QB that is struggling reading coverages and operating this offense. That is not going to resolve immediately; it will happen over time, and God bless Matt Nagy for knowing this and taking things off his plate. At some point they'll find a happy medium, but *right now* we can win games by running the ball and playing great defense.
  4. Understandable, but again the coach has said it takes 3 years to master this offense. Might even be closer to 5. Why are those words ignored or not brought into play when assessing the offense? Again, if we look like this week 12-16 I'll be worried. Not weeks 1-2.
  5. Why? I'd ride the coattails of this defense until the cows come home. A win is a win is a win and I'm proud of Nagy for adjusting his offensive approach this week. It shows me he isn't stubborn or too proud to know when to throttle down.
  6. Sure did! And I'm so ******* proud of him man, kid is a stud
  7. lol Gladly! THAT'S A DUB BABY!!!
  8. Eddie Pinero? More like Eddie DINERO amirite?? $$$$$$
  9. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    It's funny to me how people's memories are so tainted by success found by these QBs later in their career. Nobody remembers the journey.
  10. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    @abstract_thought Luck was 81.5, by the way.
  11. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    Have you looked at their numbers? First two seasons rating, combined: Brady - 86 Brees - 73.1 Ryan - 84.3 McNabb - 73 Rivers - 87.2 Peyton - 80.6 Eli - 70.5 Carr - 83.7 Etc. Trubisky was at 87.7 for comparison.
  12. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    * I see numerous Hall of Fame QBs on that list -- and please, spare me about the "that was a different era" nonsense. QB play is QB play.
  13. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    Allow me to list the number of QBs who were average-to-bad, statistically, their first two years in the league: Drew Brees Peyton Manning Brett Favre Tom Brady Ben Roethlisberger Eli Manning Philip Rivers John Elway Warren Moon Matt Ryan Carson Palmer Drew Bledsoe Matthew Stafford Joe Flacco Donovan McNabb Matt Hasselbeck Jim Kelly Jay Cutler Troy Aikman Cam Newton Andy Dalton Andrew Luck Derek Carr etc.
  14. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    Again, 16 games total played in this system. He's said himself he's a reps guy... I don't know if he's the brightest bulb in the box but I have respect for any human being that knows what it takes for them to succeed. Mahomes has ridiculous photographic memory from what I've learned, I'm not so sure Trubisky has that -- which is fine -- but it just means he's on a different path than Mahomes. If you ask me... you have an elite defense and weapons all over on offense. Focus on running the ball and building off that while allowing the kid to work though the intricacies of this offense. It was one game... if he's consistently playing like this around week 10, I'll freak out like everyone else. Until then? I'm cheering on the kid.
