Buchanon on FSSW

Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by SESupergenius, Oct 23, 2005.

  1. I was just watching FSSW and Buchanon was on basically saying that this system stifles his abilities to make plays. OMG, cut him now. He says we don't don't take chances on plays on defense and that we play too conservative, can't worry about giving up big plays, says he's the scapegoat.

    He's just speaking the truth. It's no mystery that the coaches lost their players a long time ago. If more players start calling out this pathetic coaching staff maybe we'll see some changes.

    while i dont particuarlly like p-burnt, he is right. he is a man cover corner who is very agressive and geared towards making the big play. outside of that though he is a medicoere zone man and average tackler.

    Another example of the inability of this coaching staff to adapt to the players they have and their skills. This staff wants to play how they think football should ideally be played. The fact that the players don't match their desires is of no concern nor does it matter. You have seen the end result. I keep saying the same think over and over again, its only the coaching staff that is a problem with this team. The owner is paralized, the GM is caught in a delima, and the Fans and Players are crying. Its really a sad thing to behold.

    Why cut him? He speaks the truth. We hardly ever take chances on either side of the ball, and our defense is too conservative. Our pass defense has looked horrible because it seems we are playing with the bend don't break mentality. Teams own us between the 20's. Our DB's are usually 5-8 yards of the line of scrimmage. I wanna see the DB's up on the line and some blitzes.

    That would be great. Dunta is a great blitzer.

    i cant believe anyone that isnt directly related to p-burnt is defending him. did yall not see the bills game? he was in man coverage and a rookie qb, who's since been benched, threw at him play after play after play. he's just not any good, nomatter the system.

    so by your basis he should be released or killed outright for having a bad game. since his benching(which he deserved) he has seemed to be one of the most sure tacklers on the field. he has made several open field tackles since then.

    Not 1 bad game but every game he has played in has been bad. So what if he has made a few open field tackles, it's the NFL they're suppose to do that. Buchanon is this year's Matt Stevens, but atleast Stevens didn't cost us what Buchanon has.

    i missed the first quarter of this game, but unless he went ray lewis for the 15 minutes that i missed ... i'm not sure what you're talking about. "sure tacklers" dont close their eyes and jump at the ball carrier with that fetal position dive he does. as for "a bad game" ... he's been a bust at CB since he got drafted. i hated deon because he's a wuss, but apparently he could cover his man. p-burnt's a wuss and cant cover.

    as to today's stats ... we spent the entire game in a nickel defense, of course the inside cb's are going to get tackles. however, how about you find the stats for missed tackles so that both sides of the story are told.

    sorry if i seem overly critical, but i'm not one to celebrate mediocrity. i'm on the front line of our campaign of "we have the worst coaching in football", but he was bad before he got here ... we didnt ruin him.

    Maybe but on one play in particular in the first half I saw him do a pathetic job of trying to cover his man. The announcers even mentioned it so I'm sure most everyone in here saw the play I'm talking about.

    I think that he might make some big plays in man to man but he's still not going to be even a shadow of what we have on the other side with Robinson.

    I'd cut his butt the day the season ended if it were up to me. Yes we'd get nothing in return but you can easily argue that we already lost those draft picks and for all practical purposes we got nothing in return then too.

    The number of tackles a corner has doesnt mean he's good. A good corner doesnt make many tackles because he covers his man too good to let him get the ball.

    Buchanan gets more tackles than Dunta because people can throw to Buchanan's man and get completions. That doesnt make Buchanan a good tackler, corners arent supposed to be the team leader in tackles, that's a bad sign, letting people get to your secondary a lot.
