Joe needs to stick to coaching and stop making personel moves. Danny is in no way going to say no to what Joe is asking for, whether its a good move or bad move. Joe is a great coach, but very few great coaches can be both a coach and GM. and some have failed miserably. Once we get a front office in place the team will show some improvement, but as long as Danny, Vinney, and Pepper Rogers are making personel moves, we will continue to falter the way we have since Danny took over. GMs are highly underrated in todays NFL, but look at how well teams like New England, Philly, Dallas, Chicago, Cincinnati, Giants are doing. All those teams draft talent to build a team, then maybe add a key free agent here or there. Not 6 to 7 started on both sides of the ball every year. This year is the first year I can remember we didn't actually go out and sign every big name out there, but we did not draft too well. We needed a #2 receiver and Mike Williams was available, we could have drafter a corner with our 2nd round pick. Even if you wanted Campbell that bad, he was still going to be there in the 2nd round. Look at the two or three DE that were available when we picked. Look at what they are doing in Dallas. I rest my case, we need a GM.
Cincinnatti drafted Carson Palmer and now their GM is a genius? Those are the tough decisions that great front offices make, huh? Also, we didn't have a second round pick. I rest my case, you don't know what you're talking about.

With the same personnel, same blocking, Betts and Cartwright seem to run harder at hit the hole at full speed and have better success. Neither Betts or Cartwright are breakaway runners so these runs very rarely go the distance. Portis is a breakaway runner. He is not hitting the holes hard. I see him avoiding contact, falling prematurely and running into the back of his blockers. In the fourth quarter, Gibbs called his number repeatedly. He didn't deliver. I saw Marty do the same with LT and he delivered.

Absolutly! Nice job H2.

I wouldn't say that losing those close games means that something is extremely flawed. If we lost those games by 14 points or more, then I would say something is extremely flawed. Losing games by 2 or 3 points, late in the fourth quarter is distressing, but I don't believe it means that something is way wrong. This team is still going through transition, like it or not. I believe we're expecting this team to be Super Bowl champions right from the start.

Maybe saying "extremely flawed" was a little, well, extreme.
However, something is wrong, and it seems to be getting worse in the past couple weeks. Trust me, I do not expect us to go to the Super Bowl this year or next. I just want us to continue to make progress toward that goal. Unfortunately in the past three weeks, we've moved in the wrong direction.

We are making progress. Not all progress is going to show up as wins unfortunately.
