    crap, then even I would be fired!!!
    I haven't thinned the herd enough lately to get out all the weak and slow.


    Getting rid of single players DOES NOTHING.
    You need a better plan, like *who* you plan to plug in and what kind of adapting scheme you will use them in.

    This isn't an engine that you just put a new spark plug in.

    Fred Smoot just had two solid back to back games. All the missed tackles we had today & last week & you guys single out Smoot who had only 1 this week.
    I believe he had two. One on Gore, and one on Robinson.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Seriously ... could you get to the herd thinning?
    Coming on here and wanting to talk about the problems on offense ... what Troy can do to get things fixed ... if there are options other than BJ and all would be fun ... but instead ... every time we lose this board is FILLED with nothing but hate ... it makes it much less enticing to some of is that have been here a long time.

    Re: Players we need to get rid of for next year?

    not going to single out players, but we need to improve our depth at DB, we need improvement on the right side of the O-line.
    And we need a receiver to step up and make plays, which means holding onto the ball, especially when it means a first down.
    I think so far our D-line and LBs have been a pleasant surprise, as has our running game, when we utilize it. My main problem is the pass offense, it has done almost nothing this year, we need TDs through the air, we can't just rely on defense and special teams to get things done.
    I think we need to take a good look at getting better QB depth too.
    Perhaps bring in Matt Schaub, or some other QB that has some experience, in the offseason to compete with T-Jack for the starting QB job, if he is available.

    Thanks to PPE for the awesome Sig.

    Yeah Baby! I forgot about the Matt Schaub thread. I say, 'Let's get him'. T-Jack won't be ready, let Schaub prove he can be the man, and T-Jack compete. I love Brad, but not next year...please. Let him play out this season, he'll get us in the playoffs, most likely, but that's it. Don't traumatize T-Jack by forcing him in too soon. I had high hopes this season, but I always knew it was a long shot. Unless Bollinger is better than I think, we have no QB this year.

    The way Brad has been playing, I'm starting to doubt he'll be able to lead us to the playoffs.
    If we get there it will be because the Defense/Special Teams carried us all the way.

    Thanks to PPE for the awesome Sig.

    Concerns regarding our offense are not new, nor are they restricted to only being shared after losses.
    We have scored 3 points in the past 2 games.
    Our offense is averaging 10.5 points a game.
    To put it simply, we are VERY lucky to even be 4-4.
    Brad Johnson has never shown he could consistently run the offense since he has been our starting qb, even going back to last year.
    Brooks Bollinger will not do any better.
    In all likelyhood, neither will Tarvaris.
    The fact of the matter is, Tarvaris is the only one where we don't know what we're getting.
    With our season beginning to slip, I am not opposed to shaking things up.
    Seeing as how we are past the trade deadline and there are no good FA qbs, Tarvaris seems like the best option.


    If Tarvaris starts as a rookie next year, he won't play any better because he didn't gain experience this year.
    You can't tell me that Vince Young is more NFL ready than Tarvaris, at least Tarvaris can throw.
    Vince Young isn't crumbling under the pressure like so many people seem to think happens to all rookie QBs.

    My point is...with Brad playing so poorly...and Tarvaris being our future QB, lets see what we actually have with Tarvaris.
    Then again, it won't happen anyway, because Childress is about as undynamic and predictable as it gets on offense.

    Until then, I can say I'm looking forward to the 3 yard passes on 3rd and long, and the long bombs on 4th and short.
