  1. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    That's all well and good. Historically however Alex Smith is a average QB that has needed a good/great defense and a good/great running game. He's had both basically his entire career, and his best season as a starter is a average Cousins year, will less turnovers. His average however is a far cry from what Cousins produced, and Cousins has had no help from the running game and from the defense. I know everyone wants him to be great, but he's not. He's a good game manager that needs help from the defense and running game. He can't go back and win shoot outs. And he's going to have to be able to do that here. And I don't see it happening.
  2. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Biggest stat for defense is points. KC was 15th, 'Skins were 27th. If KC was bad, 'Skins were worse where it really counts. Alex smith, with no running game and a defense that can't stop teams from scoring, is going to be in a situation he has not been in before. I also think last year was a anomaly as far as his production is concerned, and if you look at his full body of work, it most certainly is. I don't think he's going to be nearly as good as last year.
  3. HapHaszard's Passing

    Jesus, I come back after not logging on for 9 months and see this. This......this is horrible. I'm so sorry Arthur. This is a huge loss for everyone here. Everyone.
  4. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Yep. And brought that hammer down on his hand, breaking several bones. Good job Bruce.
  5. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Hey ladies and gents. Nice to see some familiar faces. Ok. I know I have not been around at all since we didn't give Kirk a LTD back in what...May or something. And.....I really didn't watch any games this year. But I saw this literally on youtube and was like "what kind of bull**** is this?" Because, there is like no WAY we are THIS stupid, right. So, I logged on for the first time in like 9 months to squash that dopey rumor. Boy, was I wrong. Again. At least I'm not invested like I used to be. A 34 year old game manager that this team might wing 5 games with. For 23 mill a season? Smells like a Vinny move. And that does nothing but stink. Oh well, back to what I was doing. Sorry fans have to go through this.
  6. This. And do so in a fashion that drags him through ****. **** you, BA!!!!!
  7. I'm referring to Scot asking for that in 2015
  8. In before close! Also considering why I should follow such an inept team anymore.
  9. If that is the case, then everyone in the FO needs to be fired. Because this would mean every single one of them is incompetent. We didn't have to. We chose to. If we wanted' we could have had him for 20 million. Be the FO gambled, lost, and still is pinching pennies. They didn't even have to tag him. You have no clue, apparently.
  10. Then maybe the FO should put out a market value offer. It's all on them. Next year the market value will be closer to 30 million. Because we have idiots running the show.
  11. Or the contract that was offered in May had like 40 million in guarantees and the FO did nothing else. This is 100% on the FO. And they deserve everything they get, and more. We don't have either.
  12. RGIII. He's still young and he would be a home grown player!!!
  13. The actually go back and forth, they were a 4-3 3 years ago, played some 3-4 and were kind half and half this year. It seems to depend if they have a real NT or not. Personally I would ditch the 3-4 NOW. It's been a huge failure and it schematically has issues against the run. We are in a run heavy, physical conference. I went and looked on Murphy, and it"s hard to tell. I see him listed as both. Some areas had him as a DE, some a OLB, and some as OLB/DE. But for the sake of argument, let's say Murphy was a 3-4 OLB for at least his 5th year senior season, which seems to be the case. You have a point about certain guys being small, but 4-3 usually has a smaller, quicker DE on the weak side that is a pass rushing specialist. Andre Carter, for instance, was only 265 and was our weakside DE. The issue with converting DE's to OLB is coverage. Most have not done it before, and usually are not good at it. Kerrigan, Smith, Murphy are all a huge liability in coverage. And that is the problem with making DE's OLB's. And then there are times when they just are not real comfortable standing up, even as a rusher. This doesn't happen to everyone, but I have heard it be an issue for some players, and the adjustment never really seems to happen.
