    that would require him to have a quarterback that doesn't consistently underthow him the ball. Schab has cost Johnson at least 3 HUGE TD passes this season because he wasn't able to throw it far enough. I'm so tired of seeing Andre having to wait for the ball to get to him. :mad:

    I agree with this, would be nice for once to see Andre catch a long ball in stride for an easy TD.

    I wish you the best of luck but at this point I doubt Kubiak would even know what hit him if you told him what you were about to do, showed him a picture of the stick, hit him with the stick and then showed him the picture again.

    We didn't catch a break by having this game against the Ravens being on Monday night this week. Since the Ravens played a tough, tough game on Sunday Night, playing on MNF gives them an extra day to heal.

    I think our best bet would've been playing the Ravens, after the played the Steelers, on Thursday night. Sadly, we didn't get that break this time around.

    That being said, we moved the ball ok in the second half of the Jets game. Ran it some with Foster (84 yards and 2 TDs on 22 carries) and spread the ball around some underneath to get some offensive flow.

    In my opinion, if we line up in a pro set and try to go vertical, we'll get squashed on offense. We'll need to spread the Baltimore defense out some and work the underneath routes. Dreessen/Walter/Daniels will need to step up and give Matt some good targets to help him protect the ball and himself. Matt's gotta be able to read and diagnose quickly and get the ball out before Ngata and Suggs collapse the pocket on him.

    We played the Eagles after they had a tough Sunday night road loss on a Thursday, and they still took it to us late. Our only upside here is that we've had a week and a half to heal up and get fresh. Mario and Johnson both needed that in a big way.

    Agreed that Schaub needs to have a 2.5 second alarm clock in his head.

    Currently in a 4-way tie for the #10 pick, and he's projected to go 6th at the moment.

    No chance we finish with anything "better" than the #7 pick, and with Tenn in a free fall of their own, I doubt we can creep beyond the #9 pick.

    As much as I like him, I don't think you can draft Julio Jones with a defense this atrocious. No other DBs are that enticing in the first half of the 1st round, so maybe we reach or trade back for Nick Fairley and end the Amobi Okoye Fall Back Experience.

    OD, having played the QB position, just gets matt schaub. He knows where he needs to be when schaub is in trouble. I think matt has missed Daniels more than we are led to believe. For some reason, he just doesn't trust the other guys going underneath. So many times he has dreesen open underneath, and instead goes to Andre who is being covered by two defenders. It's all on matt schaub. He needs to be ok with not going for the big yards all at once. I want D anderson in there every other play.

    Sadly, I think Amukamara is no better than Kareem. Almost seems like a Kareem 2.0 with a little more height.

    That used to not be a problem for Shaub... he's thrown some great deep balls, but not this year. I don't know what's wrong with his arm.

    he hasnt been able to step into a lot of throws as teams have been bringing the pressure more and more.

    ALso, a lot of the big plays are slow developing so by the time schaub is in position to throw, the WR is already a ways down field.

    That being said, Schaub just doesnt have a huge arm.

    ya, I don't remember having to see AJ stop and wait for a pass as much as he's had to do this season.

    We're at that point we're playing for the coaches job again.(See Seattle game last year iirc) 'Everyone rally around and lets win this game and/or the remaining games for Kubes!'

    I would LOVE Fairly in the first round..maybe draft a LB in the second round?

    Sign a veteran corner who can cover and pray that Ryan Broyles is there in the third round.

    Ha, let's not hope for that.

    Hey Arian, what if I told you a new coach could come in and take you 'there' next year instead of 2-3 years?! :p
