And now, he is just a complete liability. He's never in position to make a play on the ball, and when he needs to make an open field tackle, he either whiffs or just falls down.

I'm done talking about "what if" with him. I don't need any more convincing that he is a bust. That's unfortunate, and very costly.
I think Gruden even used those words, "complete liability", on air last night. They had him lining up 25 yards deep just to keep from the team from giving up the big play and yet they gave up big play after big play.

Maybe being called out on national T.V., by name, might just be enough to light enough to light a fire under his a@@. I wouldn't hold my breath but at 0-3, and a defense held together with ace bandages and surgical tubing, wishful thinking is the best thing we've got going for us.

I'd sure like to see more of Erik Harris...

I'd also like to see Brian Dixon brought onto the active roster so Del Breaux doesn't have to be on the kicking coverages...

Who would we cut? We're already thin just about everywhere.

I wasn't complaining when Rob provided results but I think the stories about Payton "taking over" and changing what he wanted from the D are legit, he is still trying to copy Seattles D and won't admit that the experiment has failed.

Our D in 2013 kept us in the playoff game, it was the offense that cowered in the face of Seattle but Payton will never admit he was wrong.
yep, should have got wade, he would have known what talent to draft

I'll clarify my statement by saying I'd promoted Dixon before signing Webb...

Dixon was a standout on kickoff, punt coverage and we still have the same results in pass coverage because of an anemic pass rush...

True, every teams 5th CB and down are basically excel on special teams, and can spot play occasionally in a pinch.

Our 5th CB and down are being asked to start on gameday, with no depth behind them. It kills our starters AND it hurts special teams. These guys can play both all game every game.

I'd like to see Dixon back up as well. We can always play the roster shuffle

One major problem is that we have several players injured that are not on IR. You can't sign anyone to replace them without cutting someone.

Loomis.

There. I said it.

This franchise (business) has been completely mis-managed for the last 5 years (at least).

I'm over it.
