    We've got a half decade of suck wating for us. If you can't hit luck we got problems.

    It also had to do with BB having faith in Brady to lead his team from their RZ or almost RZ to FG range. BB had a chance to win a Lombardi and he went for it.

    Kudos to BB

    If Gaine nails this offseason then this post could be wrong.

    What Odds do you give Gaine to nail this offseason?

    I lost faith long ago in casserly and rick. Protect Watson. If Gaine can help do that we're half way there.

    But if they can add 5 solid guys at those positions then they will have a much better (True Contender) I just listed the holes. Do you agree with the holes?

    WR or RB?

    Kubiak was way predictable in that situation but it kept working, TE drag route clearing 12+ yds of space. He was also predictable as hell just inside the red zone and it also worked a lot, TE (or Walter) post 3 yds shy of the endzone and let them fall in.

    I liked Gaine's draft a lot. Free agency not so much other than Honey Badger.

    Hopefully he nails this offseason. We'll still be handcuffed with poor coaching IMO.

    It was a wr screen. I dont believe in such a call on you own 1 yard line. I dont dislike screens - just the position on the field wasnt warranted.

    I'm not a big thread starter, but you should start up a thread that asks if fans think Gaine will nail this draft. I think after reasearching the talent he can find 4 solid contributors. Reid to Coutee type contributors. If this happens and they can find a couple of guys in FA then good time will be ahead.

    Forget about Coaching for the offseason and lets take an in depth look at the draft.

    Give us a few weeks to vent on coaching. It's months to the draft

    And someone needs to define exactly what "nailing the off-season" means.
    I don't know if you guys noticed, but goalposts tend to move a lot around here...

    Adding 4 Reid/ Coutee type contributors.

    Regardless of position.

    Re-sign/franchise Honey Badger, KJax & Clowney (trade an option) and get, draft or FA, 2 OL, 2 CBs, a 5' 10" 220 lb bulldog RB with vision & read OB the riot act on watching Pittsburgh & New England 24/7 until training camp.

    powda, austins23 & I are working on Devlin.

    so if Gaine adds a couple of WRs and DBs that make a few plays, but ignores the O-line, you're giving him an "A" grade on the off-season?

    While Coutee showed some promise from time-to-time, he had just 28 catches for 287 yds and 1 TD. That level of "contribution" should be easy to match. Until he shows he can play a full season Coutee is just another Will Fuller.

    Now Reid, OTOH, was a true "contributor"; three INTs - one a pick-six - a FF, ten passes defensed.... I'd like four or five of these "contributors", thank you.

    And at least two of them should be O-line guys.
    Or for me the off-season is a :faildetector:.

    Looked at as a season yes but that's cursory. Little dude (nickname for Sue) blew up 2 games for 110 yds. That talent level is not easily replaced. He's worth hoping this year was a fluke and bad judgment by the medical staff. He's like TY Hilton & Wes Welker had a love child.

    Gaine could've had a couple more gold stars on last year's draft class resume, had OB utilized the Jordan's instead of running Griffin's arse out there every week. The Jordan's will be effective when finally given a chance to play consistently.
