I ------------ CAN HIT A 30 YARD FG. I can. I dont even have to do that funny little sideways lineup step off. I can hit from 30... easy.

BOTH OF MY KIDS CAN HIT A 30 YD FG.
The planet is not out of kickers.......however we are.
What about giving Moorestead a shot?

I am still stunned after that performance. We can't play fundamental football on either side of the ball right now. Our record is much better than how we've played. We could by all rights be 0-5.

I know injuries are a big issue, but so many new problems have also developed. Inconsist effort and mental preparation, clock management, turnovers and drops, kicking issues, etc.

There is alot of things to right before we are legitimately contenders again this year. Come on guys...please!

10-6. Wild Card. NFC Championsip. On the road. Cold weather. Gameplan of pass, pass, and pass some more. Maybe next year.

What makes me sick?

I'm tired of hearing the "We're the champs, we get everybody's best shot" rationalization.

I don't think it's a factor now. Every team in the NFL wants to win games. And we're not a trash-talking, rub-it-in-their-noses type of team. Last February is a long-time ago, no one cares that much that we got the last Tiffany.

As a Lakers fan, I know this "excuse" only holds water for the first few weeks of the season. Then nobody cares what you did last year.

I've been cool with trick plays that didnt work, the (not really) double-reverse, and such. But with 6 1/2 minutes left and a 10 point deficit, its time to go hurry up. Its time to start going no-huddle. It is not time to run up the middle.

We have got to learn clock management. The clock is such an important part of the game, and to this date, apparently only Tom Landry really ever understood the Time concept of football.

1. (ask John Madden) "I am the only Raider that can call timeout." Madden did not allow his QB's to look at the defense, and throw up their hands and call timeout. I HATE HATE HATE when QBS call timeout at the line of scrimmage. How many times do you lose, not because the other team has beaten you, but because you have run out of time. How many times could an L be turned into a W, if you just had 30 seconds. WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD do we waste timeouts???? Do not call timeout at the line of scrimmage, just because you dont like the defense. Take a delay of game penalty, throw the ball away, or improvise. Brees wasted two timeouts yesterday on a drive we didnt even score on. Basically he gave the defense a breather.

With all your timeouts, after you've just scored 7, you have the option to kick downfield, and stuff their obvious run, or hope they'll try to pass, and maybe fumble --- like they did.

2. Kurt Warner noticed it too. Where was the sense of urgency when you're down by 10?

3. Jeremy Shockey, when you catch a first down, and then beautifully juke a defensive back, and youre down by 10 in the 4th, your next destination should be the sideline. In this situation, an extra yard doesnt matter. An extra 35 seconds does.

You're going to get beat sometimes by stronger faster players, and pumped up home-field defenses. And we have a history of making obscure QB's look like Johnny Unitas. But we have the guns to mount
a rally anytime. If we only had the brains.

Clock management will win games like yesterday's.


rep for you my friend!!

It stopped being a factor after Minny, if it was even a factor then. That is just something the media dreamed up and they say it every year.

I am mad because we are better than this
greed is a terrible thing. The boys did what they said they would do, when no one thought they could or it was even possible. I don't need another ring, I'll just believe in them.

As for the problems facing the offense well you really didn't go into that, so this is my counter rant
