Re: Payton need to go?

I think we are stuck with Sean and I don't think we'd be in any better shape without him.

Problem with this team started years ago and its taking some time to right the ship. We have been sticking a bandaide on the Titanic thinking that is going to fix it.

Instead of drafting Ingram when we did we should have been addressing the O line. Yes its nice to have horses but when you can't block for them they will look like crap.

Re: Payton need to go?

I agree. I'm going to hold out hope that the offense struggled because they didn't get many reps in the preseason. That's what I'm telling myself at least. Unfortunately the Oline did play and they weren't one iota better than preseason.

I didn't get this one (Harris over Crawley) either. Sterling Moore should have seen the field a lot more than Devante'. He was exposed consistently in pre season .. we are playing zone inside the red zone. WTF? I'm no longer buying what Dennis Allen is selling.

And to think Jim Schwartz was available when they inked DA as DC.

Moore was active. They just didn't use him. Vonn Bell either.

Yes. Still scratching my head with that move.

And if Payton were cut loose now, I guarantee you that the 2017 Season would be done...
No one is discussing a mid-season letting go of SP. That would be silly. The issue with having optimism comes from the fact that this season and this game do not sit an isolation. There is a recent trend that provides enough supporting data to infer that it is likely not going to be a good season.

That said, I will be here each week through all 16 games just like I have since '04. Not meaning '04 with the Saints, meaning with this board. I hope this means nothing. I hope we come out and play like gang busters. I am just giving my honest opinion on what I believe will happen based off of the information I have.

Big Hitter, the Lama.

Re: Payton need to go?

I don't believe in this team, coaches or GM. How many loosing seasons will it take before big changes happen?

You got it. It all starts in the trenches. We've invested here and there but not nearly enough. No depth really on either side and watching what happened when Strief exited the game showed up quick.
