Things can certainly get turned around...

We have three (3) highly regarded defenders still out with injury:
CB Keenan Lewis
FS Jairus Byrd
LB Dannell Ellerbe

Though limited, there were decent appearances made with two offensive weapons:

WR Marques Colston
RB C.J. Spiller

We have yet to utilize some of our new additions from scrimmage:

RB Marcus Murphy
OL Andrus Peat

And we had some young players show significant improvement and adjustment to the pro game...

LB Stephone Anthony
CB Damian Swann
DL Bobby Richardson

However, it seemed we were too slow at several positions for the younger Bucs...

OT Zach Strief
OG Jahri Evans
DL Cam Jordan
CB Brandon Browner

This season is going down fast and for it to be saved, Payton is going to need to reverse course on a couple of things...

He's got to get Marcus Murphy involved until CJ Spiller is up to speed...

He's got to face reality that Mark Ingram is a solid, short yardage back and was no where near worth his draft status, contract extension and should quit forcing him on plays he's not finding success...

He's got to get Kasim Edebali on the field as a complement to Hau'oli Kikaha, even if that means finally installing the 3-4 base defense...

He's got to realize what the Patriots already knew, CB Brandon Browner is only good in a specific role in the Seattle secondary and is another busted signing for he and Loomis and should bench him and allow one of his newer, younger acquisitions to develop...

He's got to get rid of some of these assistants who are incapable of developing, coaching talent like Joe Vitt, Greg McMahon, Bill Johnson...

However, the odds are long and Payton seems to be in a stubborn place right now...

I'm equally stubborn and still want him over any other head coach in the league...
Best post I have seen around here in a while.

Re: A sudden turn of events could help us

The turn of events required is for the each and every parts of our team to get in sync and execute; offense, defense and special teams. It matters not which of the opposition's personnel is or is not available to play.

I AGREE....It seems as if SP plays favorite to people a lot.

Re: A sudden turn of events could help us

The only turn of events we need is for SP to give up play calling duties. His plays are old, tired and predictable.

Re: A sudden turn of events could help us

It's funny how Gruden knows which plays we will run by just looking at our formations. You think opposing teams don't...

Re: A sudden turn of events could help us

Quite frankly a lot of the guys on this team look they were all out too late at the club....

The plays were very predictable.

Danno, it's not nice to call out my game in comparison to this Saints squad. At least I'm trying to improve.
