Hm, that is a really good point. But I guess we all expect Wade to be successful.

Before we start preaching about how he's only the coach and he can't tackle or catch the ball, I want to take it a step further.

Those things are absolutely true. But I think he reacted too slowly with integrating Rocky McIntosh into the starting lineup and making other defensive adjustments. By all accounts, thus far, Rocky could end being a gem. Another thing, how is it that Tiki Barber has a career game against every time he plays against us? Where's the game planning? Where's the mentality, if you beat us it won't be with Tiki rushing for over 200 yrds! Why not make Eli Manning beat you with 40 passes?

In my opinion it's the coaches job to "polish" off the talent that exists. I didn't get that impression from Williams last year. Another thing, defensively we didn't play with any fire or urgency last season. You say this was the players fault. I say they didn't whole heartedly buy into what the staff laid out for them on Sundays. These guys are professionals and they have to strap it on every Sunday, I understand that. It just seemed to me that Williams was more interested in doing post game interviews on Comcast rather than make radical adjusments and hold his staff accountable for poor performance after poor performance.
McIntosh "could be a gem"? By what accounts?

The only fault I can find with the coaches is their apparent role in personnel decision making. Williams' system didn't change from 2004 to '05 or '06. The only thing that did change was the age of the players, specifically along the defensive line. Then there was the injury to Springs. Again, that's a testament to personnel decisions -- your pass rush shouldn't hinge so heavily on one cornerback; the D-line has to step up and get pressure when everybody else in the secondary sucks so bad that they can't blitz. No coach can "polish" has-been defensive linemen into effective pass rushers.

I don't think it's out of the question that Rocky could be a gem. The accounts I'm speaking of were reported in WP. He was pretty good on teams last year, and the one game he did start was a solid outing. I think two young backer to watch in our division this season will be McIntosh and Bobby Carpenter (Cowboys)

You're right, no coach can "polish" an aging player, but he damn sure can help him with technique, which can improve pass rushing skills.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted other, and have to agree with freddyg12 on Brandon Lloyd. With Moss repeatedly having to deal with nagging injuries, Lloyd must bring a game in order to continue justifying his being. He was clearly the most dissapointing player on the offensive side of the ball last year.........Needs to step up his game "Big Time"

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted Rodgers and not because he had a percieved bad year last year ... I think had he had Darrell Green or Deon Sanders Champ Bailey or even a healthy Shawn Springs i doubt he would be in this discussion...

The reason I voted for him is because we need to know that if we cannot go with Springs this/next year we have a legitimate No1. CB

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted Other. I think Jason Campbell needs to step up and try to do something similar to what Vince Young did last year. The QB makes the offense go and if JC steps it up the offense will go.

True...but Jason Campbell was the one ineligible in this poll. Because we all know he's vital to this team's success. If he was an option it would have been a landslide

Honestly, the only thing I want him to do Vince Young-related is to win. I would honestly be pretty pissed if he put up the stats that Young did.

Aside from him, who would you say? Imagine you were to follow the rules of the poll, who would you vote for?

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted other because I think Griffin and Springs are the leaders of this defense and when they go down the whole D goes down. So I feel both of their levels of play have to improve to the type of play we saw in 05. I think the rest of the D will follow when these two step it up.

I'd still vote for other and its the coaching staff. They need to figure out a way to put the players in specific and the team as a whole in a position to succeed. IMO, I dont think they did a very good job of that last season.

Better answer. And an interesting one, I hadn't really thought of that one

He probably did do everything he could to help the technique of his guys. I tend to agree with Beems though, it isn't going to help all that much.
