Loving the intensity of the SF/SEA game

 

Crushed??? Seriously?? Crushed....the purple haze fumes went back to your head :P

 

Then again I guess the pop-gun offense with no Ray Rice getting 14 points is a crushing :blink:

 

And I'm done with fraking lightning delays....play the stupid games already!!!

To many. To many penalities by both. Every other play. Two of the best teams in the league though. Will be fun to watch them again later in the season.

Already regretting calling the Bucs a sleeper. Josh Freeman sucks and it's amazing how many stupid penalties they take. 

 

Apparently him and Schiano do not get along at all, and Freeman wants a trade. I don't think many teams will want him but I can see him going to maybe Minnesota.

As non-special as Freeman is, I'd run to take him if I'm Jacksonville.  God, that offense is scary bad.

 

Then again, getting Freeman would hurt their chances at Bridgewater lol

The Jags should just get it over with and sign Tebow.

Bill Barnwell on Ron Rivera: http://www.grantland...ek-2-nfl-season

 

Ron Rivera did it again. After passing on an opportunity to convert a fourth-and-1 to beat the Falcons last year, a move that ended up turning a near-certain win into a loss, Rivera faced another tough situation Sunday and chose the most conservative option available despite the nature of his team. And let's be clear: That's the biggest problem with Rivera's decision-making at the end of close games. It's not that he's making decisions that go against the numbers, nor is it that he's choosing the most tentative, risk-averse option available to him. It's that he refuses to recognize his team's strengths and adapt his decision-making to incorporate them. This isn't Thank You For Not Coaching; it's Thank You For Not Learning.

 

In short, Rivera passed up another fourth-and-1 game-sealer to put his defense in a situation where it needed to produce a stop to win. With 1:42 left, the Panthers were up three on the Bills, who were out of timeouts. Carolina was facing a fourth-and-1 on Buffalo's 21-yard line with two clear options. The aggressive choice was to go for it, a move that would have allowed the Panthers to kneel three times and end the game, with the downside of allowing the Bills to tie the game if they stuffed the Panthers and drove for a field goal (or lose if the Bills scored a touchdown.)3 The conservative option was to kick a field goal and force the Bills to drive down the field and score a touchdown, at which point they would (barring a failed extra point) win the game.

 

What is unquestionably true is that the Panthers are a wildly successful team in short yardage. Since Rivera took over and the Panthers drafted Cam Newton first overall, Carolina has run the ball on third-and-1 or fourth-and-1 43 times. It has converted 35 of those runs for first downs or touchdowns, meaning that its break-even rate on those plays has been a whopping 81.4 percent. Newton, in particular, has been near-unstoppable: He is 16-for-18 on those carries as a pro. You wouldn't want to risk sneaking him on every single short-yardage play just for the purposes of keeping him healthy, but with the game on the line, you simply have to turn to Newton. And even if you don't, Carolina's backfield is full of expensive running backs; Jonathan Stewart is hurt, but the Panthers could just as easily have handed the ball to DeAngelo Williams or Mike Tolbert. Even if you want to accuse that data of being too small to analyze, what do you think Carolina's "true" success rate is if it ran the ball a million times with a yard to go against an average defense? Would it convert 60 percent of the time? 70 percent? Literally, if the Panthers had to sit down and write a résumé, the first strength they would mention is their effectiveness in short yardage. And yet, Rivera turned down another opportunity to use that strength to seal a victory.

I love Bill Barnwell and Robert Mays at Grantland (and also Chris Brown). Cool to see I'm not the only one who reads him/them.

 

MD2020: Agreed, between the long delay, the penalties, and SF doing zilch... I expected a lot better. 

 

Crash: I think the Jags were 6-point underdogs, which looked like the best bet of the week. Amazingly they couldn't even cover with a non-Gabbert QB starting for them. What a horrible team.

that game last night was horrific....least after the storm....the NFL has to do something about these lightning delays (not to mention there was no way to see the TB-NO game since none of the overruns picked it up)....and that game lost its nasty edge....and my interest after the hour delay.....then again an hour of Dull Patrick and Tony Dungy probably put half the country into a coma behind that wall of bland....

 

I really thought Henne could do SOMETHING in that game in a last chance thing....I can't remember seeing as bad a QB pair (well maybe Sanchez and Tebow but timmUHAY was never a QB in my eyes) as Henne and Gabbert......

Barnwell is the best football writer I have seen out there. He has nailed exactly what Panthers fans have been pissed off about for two years and two games with Rivera. He has no interest in coaching to the strengths of the football club at all. You can't coach like that. 

 

Barnwell brought up an excellent point I never really thought have. The Panthers were up 3 with just under two minutes left at the Bills 21.It was 4th and 1, and the Bills were out of timeouts. Rivera said he briefly thought of going for it, but liked the idea of making the Bills having to score to win more. But even if you didn't get the first down (the odds showing that's might be 15-20% for Carolina), most coaches with a young QB or even a veteran don't think of going for the win there. He writes:

 

NFL teams approach situations. In a three-point game, the Bills are far more likely to try to get into field goal range and set up for an easy attempt that would force overtime without risking a game-ending interception; down six, they'll have no other choice but to be hyper-aggressive and try to score a touchdown.

 

And that's the issue with Carolina. They have an awful secondary to begin with that is banged up and even a good pass rush gets very tired in the 4th quarter, Truly Amazing that Rivera has learned nothing. As Barnwell says, he is coaching the team like he has never seen them play. Pathetic.

About the only good news about Carolina is that they have the week 4 bye, so if they're going to make a midseason coaching change to save their season, now's the time.  Fire Rivera and give someone who's got the stones to run this team an interim tag.  It's a race between Schiano and Rivera as to which one hits the unemployment line first.

 

Very happy about a 2-0 Miami squad.  Atlanta is going to be a tough game, but I'm hopeful that our QB pressure can rattle Matt Ryan enough to pull it out this coming week.  

 

Baltimore looked bad, but Cleveland looked worse.  I don't want to shovel dirt on their year yet, but IIRC since the division realignment no team who's gone 0-2 to start the season has even made the playoffs.  

 

Was absolutely stunned on how the Philly/SD game went.  A WC team coming East for a 1 PM start and ran with what's supposed to be a fast Eagles team...well, it was fast, but their defense was sadly fast and loose.  SD may be tougher than advertiized, and it may be time to pump the breaks on the Eagles' resurgence (not to mention the Skins' repeat division title).  Dallas looks better and better for the NFCE each day.

We have a crap-ass division in which rivalries may trump talent when the Triumvirate of mediocrity (Pitt/Clev/Balt) play Cincy in divisional play. We could win the division at .500. Not likely, but a possibility.
