i honestly dont think ive seen competent qb play since todd collins came in for those last 5 games or so years back ... before that brad johnson. too long weve gone without a clearly competent qb.
Well lets give Beck a chance. He deserves a shot.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

I know i'm way too late, but yeah, rex was pretty much awful, and john beck has 0 accuracy, so the hole at QB is looking terribly big right now.

I love how people here spend years bitching about how conservative we are, how we never go for the big touchdowns, how awesome teams like the Patriots don't settle for field goals.

But when we go for a big play at home on our first drive of a 0-0 game, then we want to talk about playing the percentages

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

If we had better play at the qb posistion , I would love the play calling . However , after losing two linemen , and having a quick /big play offense as the opponent , I would have liked to see more of an attempt to pound the rock on a poor run defense . We also need to work on the run Defense .

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

I normally don't like to point the finger at one guy but Rex just killed us yesterday. Each pick was worse than the one before. I think he was pressing and trying to make something happen, I get that, but you can't just keep tossing balls up for grabs. It's Beck's turn, he can't be worse than Rex... can he?

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

A smack down on the bye. It is only supposed to last for one week. Ours lasted for at least two weeks. Few people showed up to play.

Mcintosh was "Bad Rocky" yesterday. He took bad angles and had his feet in cement. Ive seen this numerous times with Rocky, where he will be in position or in his gap and then when the ball shows up he waits to tackle instead of being aggressive, McCoy just runs around him after making a move. WTF

D Hall gave up the play to Maclin which he had position, but got the ball ripped from him which was Carlos-like. But Hall interception was huge right outside the redzone, but then Rex...

Receivers were getting open, sometimes very open, on most of the passing plays. Problem was that by putting our selves in such a deep hole by not running we forced Rex to rush his reads and try to make big plays, coming from behind. And that's not his strength. That said though, Rex is a veteran starting QB in the NFL. I agree with playing to your QB's strengths, but there's a fine line between that and coddling.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

I think there's a fine line between blaming playcalling and blaming Rex for bad execution/decision making. I lean more towards blaming Rex. Seems like these past few games he got away from having any patience and went back to the Rex of old thinking he can just chuck it all over the field.

It's like the deeper into the hole he went, he just kept making things worse and ended up burying himself.

Um Rex Grossman is our QB. Being aggressive is fine. I'm all for it. But when you have a QB who throws multiple int's a game then you can't be aggressive. He should've had at least 4 more this year cause guys flat our dropped picks that hit them dead in their hands.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

It evens out, there were interceptions that never should have been. Grossman has also thrown deep completions and TDs, so to say we shouldn't have been aggressive at that point is just 20/20 hindsight

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

I have to say that I'm very disappointed in Kyle's game plan that featured so little running plays against a team who ranks very low on run defense. If you aren't going to game plan against weaknesses, then you won't be coaching in the NFL long.


Rex. Sweet baby jesus christ on a cracker. Dude should have been pulled at the half. Was absolutely horrible. I've said it time and time again about Rex. His pocket presence and mobility are absolutely horrible. Beck did a much better job in relief with just those two areas alone. I think it's time to put the Rex starting gig to rest now, and just let Beck roll with it to see what the kid has. If he craps the bed, we just draft a QB position and go from there. If he's much better than expected, we win games and possibly keep him as the starter until we can get somebody to study under him.


1st half defense. There was none. End of story. I hope Shanny makes these guys work their asses off next year's bye week because they surely sucked balls coming out of this years.

WRs- Not helping much at all with the costly drops. It's definitely time to upgrade this position.


I say our only bright spots were Gano, Rocca, and perhaps Fred Davis.

The defense played sloppy the first half, missing tackles, completely whiffing when trying to jam a receiver (c'mon Barnes!), not diving after tipped balls. Seemed like Rocky was just standing there on the Celek tipped catch. And a makeshift OL for the Eagles, and we got almost zero pressure. I'll give them a stud for turning things around, but early on they looked ugly.
Yup. People want to excuse the defense for its studly second half performance and, instead, focus on the ineptitude of Rex. Okay, we held the Eagles to 20 - but we spotted them those right out of the gate. You don't think that effects how the rest of the game is played? A pass happy KS is faced with a 20 point deficit - you think "Okay, time to resurrect the run game" is running through his head at that point? We all knew that, for the team to succeed, Rex needed to be put in a a caretaker/game manager mode.

The defense came out and got torched putting all the worst elements of the team's offense to the forefront. 20 points over 4 quarters is acceptable. 20 points in the first half - including two long drives for TD's - is not. Good job turning it around, but that first half was abysmal and set the team up to lose. The ineptitude of Sexy Rexy did the rest.
