Damn, missed the pick! Was reading about pissed off Cowboys fans because kens5 in San Antonio switched away from the game.

haha yeah well i wont talk bad about them cause we are on our way to 7-3 so keep it up :)

Oh don't get it twisted...I'm extremely happy of where they're currently at right now and as a fan, I'm extremely pleased. (how could I not be after watching them get their teeth get kicked in for 9 years)

But I'm not going to ignore blatant things that need to be worked on and fixed, because it's the small stuff that will bite you in the rear during playoff time.

So far there's a recurrence of simple mistakes that need to be addressed.

1.) Kubiak's ability to know how to use the little red hanky (or whoever is telling him to throw it)

2.) Chris Myers is still tipping off snap counts (granted not as much, but it's still happening...and playoff team WILL notice this and take advantage of it)

and

3.) Rackers has been very shaky as of late.. (I'm not as worried about this as long as we keep blowing teams out, but my confidence in him is a little shaken as of late, maybe it's just post Kris Brown jitters..who knows)


We've played excellent everywhere else though, but those are my 3 key areas that need to be addressed if we want to go to the big dance. (and yes, I'm passed just thinking about a playoff appearence...I'm thinking if we correct the "small stuff" this team can go all the way)

Given OD's knee scare, I am willing to forget about him for the rest of the game.

I can dig that. Joel Dreesen and Garrett Graham (whose talent is being wasted on the sideline). A lot of depth.

thunderkyss
11-13-2011, 03:02 PM
For the record, I do not believe the Bucs are real competitiors. I think 2010 was the product of a weak schedule for them. I said as much last season. I don't believe in Freeman, I don't believe in Morris.

I think Blount is going to be a challenge, we'll see if he is for real today. I'm leaning towards NOT!!

We're going to beat the Bucs...... badly.

This is where I thought the Bucs were. Not a very good team, 10 wins in 2010 mostly the product of a weak schedule.

Of course, this game could mean our defense is just that good.

I think it's a mixture of the two, but I doubt we would "dominate" a good team. The Bucs may be able to play well at times, but they just aren't all that.

No it's not, if you can fit the bill under the cap. You won't be tied to him long term in he gets hurt again.

I doubt Houston is going to be able to sign Mario longterm AND Foster.. Foster deserves the long deal, Mario is pretty much expendable at this point. Franchise him and rent him for another year, if he proves his worth and can stay healthy then go from there.

Yep. The Texans would be better than the Texans.

Seriously though, this idea that we are succeeding without Mario and thus can let him go is a bit silly. This is the NFL, aka Not For Long. We've seen guys have one good rookie year and never repeat that performance. Mario is a surefire dominant DE and was look like a all-pro before his injury. Reed looks solid, but not the level of Mario.

I agree with both points. Today was an absolute beatdown and the defense is fantastic.

But it would be even better with Mario. He was becoming a force in this defense before he got hurt.

Add Mario to this D with Harris, Carmichael and more draft picks.

How do you figure? We could have cut Mario in the offseason & saved the team $13 Million. That's why you back load contracts, they're never supposed to be played out.

If we franchise Mario, he will count $18M (or whatever) towards next year's cap. If we give him a $40M signing bonus, sign him to 6 years, we can manipulate his salary so his cap number comes to $10M or less.... basically we can guarantee him $10M/yr for the next 4 years, which would be a "fair deal for him"

The last two years of the contract would be high, salary wise. But it would give Houston the ability to trade him, because we don't want to pay him that huge salary, or rework the deal 4 years from now.

LOL, who told you that?

Two of the most successful teams who have been to the big dance over the last couple of years (3 if you want to add NE's dynasty) have all relied on blitzes.

NE
GB
and especially the Steelers

ALL BLITZ....So do the Jets who have also been a top defense for a couple of seasons now.

Good defenses blitz in this league and it isn't a bad thing...it's called being the aggressor and proactive instead of reactive. There's nothing wrong with blitzing.

Hell technically sending Mario after the QB is a "blitz"...the only difference now is the offense doesn't know which backer is coming, we're actually harder to defend against now since the offense doesn't know where the hell the pressure is coming from.

Agreed that they would be even better with a healthy MW.

But they blitzed even more with MW in the lineup. Didn't Wade say they were only going to drop MW into coverage 2-3 times a game.

It took a very long time, but the team we have now was definitely worth the wait.

Typical...

downplay a dominant win on the road, just because it doesn't support your "we can't do crap without Mario and we'll struggle without him" argument :rolleyes:

Dude, we're 10 weeks in now...we are what we are at this point and a blowout on the road where we dominate every facet of the game is a blowout on the road where we dominated ever facet of the game...regardless of how you want to slice it.

Carr Bomb man you are the one who was saying how much better A. Smith was than mario, and that Mario had nothing to do with his sacks. Well bud Smith as 0 sacks since mario went out.

This D would be even better with mario. Its Wades scheme that is getting us all these sacks, not specifically the talent. Look at Marios stats before wade, and who he had a as D.C. Mario is one of the best players on our defense.

I mostly agree but I think this win does mean something.

Tampa isn't awful but we made them look like that today.

Other than beating the Saints, who did they beat? Going back to last year.


We should have beat the Saints. We dominated the Saints for 3 QTrs & 5 minutes, go look.

Saints & Bucs are in the same division.... I'm sure that has something to do with it. The Falcons just gave the Saints the game.

The domination tells me they aren't shit.... They've lost 4 of the last 5. Good teams don't lose 3 in a row.

Or you could cut him if it really comes down to it.

Exactly.... give him $24 Million up front, with two Roster bonuses for 2014 & 2015 at $12 Million a piece... that would be reported as $48M guaranteed. But we could cut him after 2 years... we would be stuck with about $20M of dead money... but I think Mario is going to dominate on this defense (with all the help he's got) over the next 4 years.

The funny thing is IF this team had Mario we'd STILL be the #1 defense and possibly better.

I'm excited thinking about how good this defense will be next year if they can bring Mario back. With Reed, Barwin, and Mario rotating it will be a great pash rush. Reed's getting some valuable experience each week.

To dominate against the Bucs (imo) isn't that big a deal.

When you consider everything else, it really says something about our team.

They've got two built in reasons to lose this game; Aj is hurt, MW is hurt. But they dominated from go on both offense & defense.

The Bucs were 4-4, one loss really hurts them in their division, effectively taking them out of any post season talks... it was a must win for Tampa.... & we had them quit somewhere in the third Qtr.

The just lost two games. I do not want to play a great team after a loss. Great teams do not lose two in a row. I do not want to play a good team after two losses, good teams do not lose three in a row.

The way we played today, eases my worries about facing a good team, or even a great team. We're going to play our brand of football regardless.

Brian Cushing had 0 sacks before MW went down. He know has one in every game since he left.

I wonder how Wade is making up for the loss of Mario.... hmmmmm

I try and look at what the other team did offensively and defensively before they played the Texans. We held the Bucs to 100 yards below what they had produced per game in the first 8 weeks. Regardless of how good or bad their offense is I think that's doing your job. On the other side we had about 20 more yards of offense than they averaged. Both of these improved our yearly average as well. You can't do much better than that.

This is the thing I worry about.

When Andre comes back Kubiak may get too pass happy. I like our chances running it with Foster and Tate, not passing much, and playing great defense.

It seems when we get into shootouts things start to get get wild.

I wasn't the only one who said that, but regardless I still don't think Mario was the "only reason for those sacks". Did he draw pressure...yes he did, but Smith is a good player in his own right and he can make plays on his own. He's still making play regardless if he's not lighting it up in the sack department.

I also never said Mario wasn't "one of our best defenders"...I said he isn't the be all end all on our defense like other posters tried to say...and guess what. We have the #1 defense without Mario, so I was right...he wasn't the end all be all on our defense. Other posters acted like nobody could even make a poo without Mario holding their hand and that simply isn't the case...clearly.

Kubiak is smarter than a lot of folks give him credit for.

He's not perfect, but I don't see him being so dumb as to start ignoring the run game when it has worked so well and try to force to dre fresh off an injury.

Arian had 4 catches for 102 yards. Jacoby had 2 catches for 87.

I think Kubiak will be expecting similar performances from Andre. He's a playmaker, a game changer. You don't have to air it out for him to get his numbers.

Playing the way we have since Tennessee, Andre would have got his numbers on 5-8 catches. I don't think we'll change much. Arian & Tate would get more of the big runs.

Not true

I just have my doubts about Garys ability to think under pressure. 6 yrs has stained me. Hopefully he's learned the error of his ways.

That or Wade told him that he will handle all of the timeouts/replay challenges.

You're not the only one who still has doubts and nightmares of Kubiak's past screw ups. For me though, they seemed to have gotten past their old 5-7 habit with much success. So I'm giving Kubiak much leeway here even though in my heart I still don't trust him.

Kubiak has coached many good games in a row. He hasn't tried to get cute, he hasn't made any real bad playcalls, he has the players playing to dominate. There haven't been any real glaring failures aside from throwing the flag yesterday (and who cares? what a dumb rule anyway)

Obviously later in the season and potentially in the playoffs is a different story, but he's on a real good run right now.

He deserves credit. Phillips deserves credit. The entire ****ing team does.
