    Ya...probably a 4th if playing time matters.

    I think next year is the tank year.

    Bring on Mason / Haskins.

    Draft in the trenches.

    Clear all the dead money.

    There have never been any reports about Rodgers faking his status.

    Seems to me that this means the team and the league knew about it. Which seems to agree with the reports that Rodgers followed...

    I thought that the O was generally better under Haley, but maybe I'm misremembering. The D wasn't as good though.

    Arians had a good offense. But it was killing Ben. Although maybe if we kept him...

    And who we would not have drafted.

    I think that's kind of the issue with vague comments like this.

    I've been pretty vocal about the specific draft choice of taking PF instead of CH.

    But I...

    I hope he doesn't go out like Noll. Because that would mean a long run of not so good teams.

    I agree that you can do well with an average (to maybe below average) QB on a rookie deal. They are just so cheap relative to real QB contracts that you can spend so much more making the team around...

    The Rats might not be all that. But they seem to be a lot better than us. Even if you're not a "you are what your record says you are" kind of person.
  9. I think we only let him come back this year...

    I think we only let him come back this year because (1) he took the salary cut and (2) having him on the roster allowed us to sign the dummy year contract and give his cap hit one final kick down the...

    Can you flesh that out a bit?

    How does coaching account for reduced accuracy? Or loss of mobility (which is what made Ben a special player)?

    He got old. It happens to all pro athletes (and...

    Can you please explain why you think that the playoff performance is mostly about the coach?

    Doesn't everyone who has any contact with football agree that it's a "QB driven league"? And that "you...

    To be fair, they were in the AFCC the year before. And they drew a playoff opponent that was a bad matchup for them (as shown by the regular season game where they dominated us). Their D got a...

    My understanding is that teams have to to spend to a floor of 89% of the cap in cash over a 4 year period

    I think the failing of the defense in the last two weeks (and more importantly in the playoff game vs. CLE) falls heavily on Tomlin.

    But people who blindly hate Tomlin think reasonable defense...

    The rebuild will be interesting.

    It's likely that success after Ben will not be as good as success with Ben in his prime.

    All HCs (except maybe BB) ride the coat tails of their QBs. Because QBs...

    It's funny how perceptions change.

    When Art II came into the front office and we started winning SBs, the Trib board was all about how Dan was soft and didn't care about winning. But not his high...

    Is there anyone who says the D hasn't been terrible for at least 2 weeks?

    This seems like a straw man to me.

    I think this is a reasonable question.

    I wonder if there are stipulations in the CBA about coaches and the rules they can impose? We know that they can only have a certain number of contact...

    And if the story becomes "the players aren't playing well", then we'd expect reporters to write stories about why the players aren't playing well. Which, if you want to talk about actual football,...

    But we're still scoring ~ 2 ppg higher than when Mason and Duck were at QB. That's more than an entire FG every 2 games!!!!!

    Hopefully Claypool can follow DJ's lead here and really elevate the parts of his game that are holding him back.

    I hope that he's able to see it that way too. It's probably a big reason behind trying to do what he's doing.

    And it's probably something he could share with players that don't have catastrophic...

    Yep. Just like the Juju dancing thing. All this crap is just window dressing.

    But when the product on the field isn't good, these kinds of things come out. Reporters are hunting for stories that...

    Saying: "We don't really expect to be competitive this year" isn't a great way for the FO to sell season tickets.
