  1. Are we already years into the future? Well then pump the brakes, because Allen has plenty of time
  2. I keep trying to get my hair to look like that, but it just won't stay up. Genetics?
  3. I don't know about that. What I do know is that Tyrod worked with at least 3 different offensive coordinators, the last two (and McDermott) tried to force him into being a pocket passer, which he isn't. Tyrod's strength's are moving around in the pocket, creating havoc, and either running or passing to an open receiver. This is where I give Rex Ryan credit, instead of neutering Taylor, he allowed him to play to his strength's. Under McDermott, not so much. Taylor was a better QB under Ryan. I can see some similarities between Allen and Taylor under McDermott. Stay in the pocket, and if it's not there throw it away or take a sack, don't turn the ball over and let the defense handle things. At that time under McDermott, it was a game of field position low scoring games. Taylor listened, Allen is a QB with a gun slinger mentality. It takes him longer. IMO, Tyrod was given a raw deal, and I'd love to see what he can do under someone like Pete Carroll.
  4. They've been bad for at least 20 years, they just have to get better. And then get even better next year. In my opinion, with a lot of room for improvement
  5. The question is, how good did we think they were? I said all along that I'd love to see the playoffs. But just getting better and more competitive would have been nice, compared to the football we've seen the last 20 seasons. And in my opinion they are better. I know you understand this, but I'm going to say it anyway. When going through a rebuild, the aim is to get better with each season. Then in the off season you assess what weaknesses you need to address so that the next season you are even better. In my opinion, that's what McBeane are trying to do. It's not going to happen overnight. Get a good system or foundation in place, so that with each passing season all you need to do is plug a few holes. Why is everyone so impatient for the next super bowl? This team is better. Let them play, make mistakes, learn from them and get even better.
  6. Good, more room for me. Now I can stretch my legs out. Allen will be fine, and I will save your seat for when you return.
  7. But at the moment we're not getting both. What we are getting is wins. I like wins more. It doesn't mean that I don't think McDermott has problems that he needs to address. It's just nicer addressing those problems with a 5-1 record, instead of the exact opposite. Wouldn't you agree?
  8. They're driving me up a wall. This team is 5-1 because they are more balanced, and aren't throwing the ball 40 times a game. Are there issues they need to address? Yes. But they are 5-1. If they were 1-5 I might tend to agree with them ... but only to a certain extent.
  9. I agree with all of this. However, not one of us thought that Allen and this offense would be pro bowl bound. We knew that they had work to do. This offense is better than they were last year, and they get better moving forward.
  10. I'll be the first to tell you that I expected a lot more from this offense today, yet they still got the win. And at the end of the day, wins are the most important stat. Whats more important to you guys, 300 yards of passing and a few losses, or the 5-1 record? Might be a good idea to start using Yeldon a little more on screen passes, because if and when they make the playoffs, they have to be able to control the ball. My big complaint is where McDermott always seems to take his foot off the gas pedal, plays not to lose and puts the game in the hands of his defense. If Josh is going to get better at the NFL level, then they need to get in the habit of keeping the ball and scoring more points. It's obvious that McDermott feels that a balanced offense with little to no mistakes, and great defense is what will bring success to this organization. And it's hard to argue with that logic, since their only loss was due to early mistakes.
  11. They needed to win the game, and they did. I agree that I thought the offense would do more in this game, but a lot of that is play calling. Up by 10 with 6 minutes to go and your playing not to lose is unacceptable.
  12. that's what I said, only I shortened it to "shit call"
