Re: Release Josh Morgan or else....

This pisses me off even more knowing what Morgan said earlier this week.

Rams defensive player to watch: CB Cortland Finnegan


Quote:
“He’s the ultimate competitor, a great competitor,” Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan said. “He’s one of those guys that plays—you know how they say play to the whistle? He’s one of those guys that plays until you walk back to the huddle…He’s just got a little extracurricular with him, you know.”
Quote:
Retaliating, Morgan said, could result in a costly penalty.

“You don’t want to be the second guy because the second guy is going to get caught,” Morgan said. “He’s going to come at you and he’s going to be the first, second and third guy. You’ve got to remind yourself not to be that fourth and fifth guy, and throw your hands up and walk back to the huddle.”
****ing idiot. You knew it, talked about it, YET still did what you did.

I understand everything you're saying, but this whole game was the exception to all logical thinking as far as discipline, emotion, and behavior from everyone involved.

I mean ( and believe me I understand but) its even weird that you're using fisher and the titans as an example of disciplined behavior.

Everyone has to first calm down. And then try to put everything into context.

Exactly what I said right after it happened. Don't cut him yet, but make him inactive for a sufficient period to sent a message to the entire team, and to allow Morgan to think about his gaffe.

I feel sorry for the guy. The referees were F-ing idiots. He had a break out game and I think he will have learned a lesson. By the way RG3 was frikin crazy good again.

Just bench his boneheaded ass.
There's no evidence of this, and in fact no reason to think it would be the case.

Re: Release Josh Morgan or else....

Morgan's temper isn't his problem, it's that he doesn't have a head for the game and at this point in his career very unlikely to develop. Don't really buy that Finnegan had much to do w/ the outburst either...Morgan was reacting to himself from the same play. When he caught that ball had he turned inside and upfield a 1st down was a near certainty. Instead his (bad) instinct was to head toward the sideline, maybe because he was thinking about the clock, but the thing is if you don't get the first down the clock doesn't matter.

I think it's very obvious why SF (who is awesome good btw) didn't mind seeing Morgan go. Sure he's got the physical skills to be a starter, but he doesn't have the mental focus/football IQ.

Josh Morgan Reportedly Set To Sign With Redskins, 49ers Getting Worse At WR - SB Nation Bay Area
But, but, but they found the money to go out and sign Manningham lol! I think Harbough and san fran play it classy by saying they would have liked to keep Morgan. Did they make a real effort? Nope...

I'm not saying we cut him. Benched for a game certainly, although how do you bench a player for basically emulating the head coach? Mike didn't maintain his focus, and players followed suit.

Excellent point. I WAS impressed how Fischer kept his cool when his team got a rash of bad calls early in the game. He never once lost his cool. In the second half of the game when the bad calls started to go our way, Mike was so red I thought he was going to have a heart attack.

There is quite a bit of overreacting to the Josh Morgan outburst. Yes, it was inconceivably stupid, but he's still a very good and valuable player for this offense.

Re: Release Josh Morgan or else....

Morgan definitely pissed me off, but let's not jump the gun here. He's still going to contribute to the team, he just needs to have a sit down with some players. I mean he should know to control himself, but all game things were happening (not that it makes it right).

What pisses me off almost more is the fact that he decided to turn around, rather than just running and falling for the first down. Had he done that, none of the other stuff would have happened.

I understand trying to make a play happen, but in that type of situation, that late in the game you MUST go forward. Plain and simple.

If this was a D Hall thread you'd be all about this...

But yeah this and the "can we sweep the east" thread really highlight how stupid fans can be. Horrible mistake by Morgan, but I would be very disappointed if they cut him

Josh Morgan should have known better. Maybe the coaches might reduce his playing time in favor of Dezmon Briscoe. I'm surprised that Briscoe hasn't played one down on offense in the first two games.
