    It would certainly be difficult for us to have less Patterson.

    That's what amazes me the most about this franchise in recent years. Our inability to find a way to use our best weapons in the game plan and on crucial downs. I mean at least get them on the field so the defense has to account for them. But I suppose it's hard to get creative when all that passiveness is in the way.

    I would have had this kid run flood patterns every chance I got on pass plays to clear the back end for Simpson and Jennings. He is not up to speed on timing routes, but he is STILL a "big gun" used properly.

    Of course, Ponder would have to show he can hit Patterson deep for this to work, so maybe it once again comes back to our QB...

    I have a FEVER! And the only prescription is MORE PATTERSON!

    How about some better blocking schemes? More Patterson would be great, but Simpson and Jennings were open; Ponder just could not hit them.

    Agreed. I'm beginning to think Musgrave is part of the problem, not part of the solution. How different would this offense look if someone like Sean Payton were coaching them ?

    Look at my posts when Musgrave was hired. He was not the kind of cutting edge coordinator the team needed. When Frazier said we are going to still be a run first team, I knew we were in for a few long seasons.

    Sean Payton would have been great.

    I remember those posts. I also remember being happy when Musgrave said he was going to tailor the offense to take advantage of the players strengths rather than trying to make the players fit a system. He said he was going to take advantage of mismatches.
    Has he delivered , or is he failing once again ?

    Yeah, or that Bevell guy in Seattle. He has assembled a pretty Kick Ass offense over there.
