Tired of the complaints and the platitudes from the players.


If this is them playing hard and still looking like crap then there are even bigger problems than I originally thought.  Jake Long is still not 100% I don't care what anyone says.  He looks terrible.  He's gettting blown away by D-ends and he's been made to look silly in recent games.  Lot's of pressure from that side that has really made Matt Moore's job a lot harder.  Reggie Bush could have been killed a couple of times having to chip or even fully block a LB'er or a DE.  Ugly line play.  But it wasn't really from the usual cast of characters.  Matt Moore showed some moxie and at times looked great.  Reggie had his second 100 yard rushing game of his career.  But other than that I was ashamed of the defense.   LB'ers were MIA and the Secondary was really good at running into one another and not making tackles.  Jimmy Wilson may actually have some skills.  I saw flashes of talent there.  But the rest of those goons are terrible.  Tired of the mediocrity and tired of the excuses and tired of guys complaining. 

 

1,  Complaining about the Suck for Luck:  I've heard several guys complaining about the talk for suck for luck.  If they would win some games there would not be the talk of it.  So win some games and the talk goes away. 

2.  Guys complaining when Reggie said "we're terrible":  You are terrible.  Reggie was honest.  Use that to push yourself in the gym and in practice.  You're a terrible football team.  Deal with that and don't criticize guys for saying what is reality.

3.  These guys are playing really hard for Tony:  Who cares.  If this is them playing really hard then we've got bigger problems than I thought.  Which is really troubling.  A.  Had they not been playing hard before?  B.  If this is them playing hard than almost the entire team is terrible.  C.  If Tony has this lockerroom under control then he should be able to get more out of these guys.

4.  On the Tony note:  Let's quit talking about what other coach are we going to get or when is Tony going to get fired.  It really doesn't matter.  I fear this is a wasted season.  If we fire Tony then we have an interim coach and things only get worse.  Say what you want we've put up with FG Tony for years now.  Firing him now is not really accomplishing anything.  So that's all I have to say about that.

5.  Ok.  Enough bitching now here are my solutions:  A.  Evaluate Jake Long and determine if he's hurt.  If he is then he's done for the next three games until he is at 100%.  B.  Move Cam Wake to DE and play him Opposite Odrick.  with Soliai in the NT role.  C.  Keep Matt Moore moving.  Let him go on designed rollouts and keep Reggie Bush near enough to provide a safety valve if no downfield options are available.  D.  Keep Jimmy Wilson in the games.  FS/SS CB whatever I like his spunk and let's see if he can be a starter.
