Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

If we do get a top 5 pick and there's a QB there that is a potential franchise QB, i think you've got to take him.

If I'm the skins, i'm trading away players for picks, picks, and more picks. The more picks the more olineman we can draft. Maybe Vinny can hit on one or two.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

wow how things change around here. before the pre season everyone was thinking we were going to win 10-12 games. reality has set in and as it turns out we're not a real good team. i see 6-7 more losses in there.

I see 2-5 going into the Bye, especially with Samuels out this week. The only realistic chances for Ws at this point are Oak, Dallas at home & possibly SD. We're looking at 5-11.

With every setback or choatic situation comes opportunity. With an uncapped season looming next year DS must bring in Matty as GM. Matty, I'll E-mail my resume to help in scouting, film wherever you think is the best fit.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

What I'm really dreading is the 3 home division games are all in primetime. With our O-line situation I kind of feel like we're going to be completely embarrassed on national television 3 times, and that is never fun.

No, and we've had our share of national TV games where we haven't performed well.

You're right, but at the same time, I think the div. games will be close & we might pull out a couple.

Glad you have some optimism left. Mine got sucked out of me watching Samuels go down and seeing Mike Williams on the field.

We have no chance of winning more than 5 or 6 games with this OL. The sad part is that our OL problems were completely foreseeable. We fans have been crying for a re-build of the OL for years!

How many of us truly believed, based on their injury history, that Randy Thomas and Chris Samuels would make it through a 16-game schedule? I know I didn't. The FO had to know that the odds of both of these key players going down to injury was very high, yet this very real possibility was not addressed in the off-season through trade, FA, or the draft.

Sure, fire Zorn. He's truly clueless. I'll grant that. But as long as this pathetically inept FO tandem of Ceratto and Snyder continue to make poor player personnel decisions, we have no chance of becoming an NFL power.

And yes, it will get worse this season - much worse. Heaven forbid that we lose to KC on Sunday! That could send us into a free-fall.

Yup. Over the last five weeks the Warpath tone has completely changed.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

I admit, I was one who thought that we were going to do well this year. Now, words cannot express the depression that comes over me thinking about the Skins. I sense a return to the Spurrier'esque circus of chaos from which I see no hope for revival.

DS will fire Zorn, play the hire/fire a coach, find ways to infuse a sense of paranoia into management personnel, play favorites with some players (Bruce Smith, Arrington, Portis) while alienating other good players (B. Johnson, L. Coles - and now C. Rodgers). I just don't see an end.

I am not criticizing the talent aquisition (other than complete failure to address the O-Line for the last 2-3 years). Actually, we have some good pick-ups both in FA and in the draft. However, I have just read one too many articles with information about the mean, petty vindictiveness of Snyder towards those who displease him (ice cream to Mike Nolan, big screen TV comment to Coles) to think that this guy can find and instill loyalty without a Gibbsian type to influence him. As long as this attitude exists, we will return to and be mired in chaos.

We should pray for a victory this Sunday, otherwise we may have already seen our last win of the year.

I kind of hope we lose out, as bad as that sounds. Nothing short of abject failure is going to be sufficient to convince D$ we need football people making football decisions.

I have little faith in that but that's what it will take for this fan.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

Well I know I'm in the minority here, but I think we have some talented players but they need to play. If we start to really falter, like we're 2-6, then why not start Montgomery at C and Rinehart at RG the rest of the way? Neither Rabach nor Thomas (most likely) will be here next year. Same with Smoot, make him inactive and make Barnes your dime back. Start Jarmon and Orakpo on the line. Start Chris Wilson, Start DT and Kelly, and make Moss your slot receiver...and so on
