That is a dead on outstanding post Celt, very, very, perceptive!

I do beleive that coupled with Williams has been the difference, I absolutly agree 100%, but that alone isn't enough to win a SB, we have to get going on offense, is it the playcalling? Is it the offensive line? Is it the lack of quality #2,3 WR's? Or is it Brunell? That is the question, something needs fixing if we are to take the big step to SB contender.

He was only here for one year, they would have gotten better, IMO, maybe not, cause Gregg Williams's D didn't get better this year, so I don't really know. However, Marvin Lewis is 10 times the head coach that Gregg Williams is and there's no arguing that. Williams took a decent team and they got really bad, Marvin took the laughing stock of the NFL and took em to the playoffs and hasn't had a losing season there.

IMO it's Lewis 10 times out of 10

Defiently a good case can be made for that, one thing I will say is this, Williams had the 10 cent brain and million dollar arm at QB in Bledsoe, but that was his own fault, Lewis has done a terrific job so far for Cinnci, but I would take Williams as my D-coordinator any day over Lewis.

Re: Free Agent WRs

Hard to decide because Lewis has done well and is still doing well but Williams made a good efense out of MUCH less talent than Lewis ever had. Our defense was ok when Lewis was here but it wasn't a game changing defense like it has been the last 2. I am not totally sold on Williams as a head coach but he can coordinate my defense any day.

Definitely. Somthing is wrong and it needs fixing. I hope Gibbs has a better idea than we do because it seems none of us agree much. Guess that's why were not coaches.

Put this idea on the scrap heap along with trading for TO and bringing Coles back.

Moss had a hard time getting the ball after Patton went down? No your right it didn't cross my mind because that didn't really happen.

Jacobs is worthless? Well so was Patton, I guess Moss didn't catch a ball after Patton went down? Who are you kidding? Moss continued his torid pace with jacobs in there as well, so this fantasy that some how Patton was providing this mysterious double coverage so Moss could rome the secondary with no, or single coverage is just pure fantasy.
on TJ, the coaches pointed out that he didn't play well in games and they didn't bench him because there simply wasn't anyone else to put in.

on patten, obviously you haven't done the math:
---BEFORE INJURY---
patten before: 2.4 for 24.1yards
jacobs before: 0.2 for 3.7yards
thrash before: 1.4 for 17yards
farris before: 0.1 for 2yards
Total before: 4.1 catches for 46.8 yards
---AFTER INJURY---
jacobs after: 1.3 for 9.5yards
thrash after: 0.2 for 5.1yards
Total after: 1.5 catches for 14.6 yards

moss averaged 104yards per game before patten went down,
and 73 yards afterwards.


that means that patten added 31(moss) + 32.3(others) yards and 2.5catches of WR offense per game.

and if you think the TEs and RBs made up some of that ground you'd also be dead wrong, cooleys numbers went down, portis's receiving stats went way down and sellers production died too.
---TEs---
Cooley before: 4.6catches for 52.1yards
cooley after: 4catches for 44.7yards

royal before: 1 for 5.2
royal after: 1.3 for 9.7

sellers before: 1.2 for 7.2 and 6 TDs
sellers after: 0.2 for 0.8 and 2 TDs

other TEs before: 0.2 for 2
other TEs after: 0.1 for 1.6

---RBs---
portis before: 2.3 for 18.1
portis after: 1.3 for 6.6

betts before: 0.9 for 8.2
betts after: 0.7 for 4

rock before: 0 for 0
rock after: 0.2 for 2.6

That means that passing production for WRs fell off by 63 yards per game, TEs by 10 yards (and a LOT of TDs), and RBs by 13 yards... that's a difference of 86 yards every game.

of course brunell's clutch play down the stretch :P also hurt, but patten's impact is the primary factor in a reduced passing game (moss's numbers immediately fell and were consistantly low until an outburst in the 2nd giants game).

Re: Free Agent WRs

wow, gusbus's thoughts on WRs are almost identical to mine and sociofan, in your #2 analysis, you listed torry holt, but i'm pretty sure he's a #1 and bruce is the aging #2 there

The best point I guess I can make is this, who was singing Pattons praises before he was hurt, most of the questions were whats wrong with him, he's not performing like he did in New England. Now if Patton was such a big deal to the passing game, why do we have post after post, and thread after thread on our need for a #2 WR? Obviously we have one already on our roster in Patton, maybe the thread should read who's going to be our #3 reciever. Either Patton is the goods, or he is not. I do beleive right before Patton was hurt he made a comment about his lack of use in our offense, for what ever that is worth.

If we dump Jacobs so be it, although I don't really know if his failure so far is all his fault but it could really be, I don't know for sure, obviously judging him by his production he's a big bust, and maybe he is, and probably defiently as far as we are concerned.

cause patten didn't seem to be productive and individually he really wasn't (and an upgrade to production while also allowing the skins to cover for injury and provide 3 good WRs can't hurt). When you look at the numbers though the overall impact is pretty big. The only play I actually remember from patten was that 40-50yard PI call he got... either way we do need more talent there since we saw how good our other options really were.

As for jacobs, his numbers are bad, he's lack of history of production means no one bothers planning for him, and after he stinks up a game (oakland) he says things like "one of their CBs runs a 4.4 and the other a 4.2, what do you expect me to do?" There's just no killer instinct there besides the injury history. That's not the only excuse he's made either, but its the one I remember the best.

Re: Free Agent WRs

Patten is a proven 3rd. Jacobs has scored less TD's than Darnarian McCants who plays for the Eagles now. Patten will be back, but we must add another WR and trade Jacobs for something; perhaps a gatorade cooler.

Re: Free Agent WRs

I think most of us had no idea what affect Patten was having on the passing game. It was only noticed once he was gone.
