Disclaimer: This is my first fanpost in my years on this great site. I will have syntax and formatting flaws but I will have less mistakes than my beloved team blinded me with Sunday afternoon, and I am not paid to do this. Hell there is a good chance I will do better as I actually care about my performance. Also, language may pop up, I'm still hot.
After falling into my Sunday loss blues, my only distraction was watching the shear joy on my Wife's face as the Packers won. A deep, and rarely felt emotion overcame me; jealousy. How is it that her team, week after week, injury after injury, manage to win? Talent? Hell, 90% of their receiving core is hurt and the replacements wouldn't make a good C.F.L. team. QB? Rogers is the best in the game right now but BB is no slouch. Defense? The Packers are missing key play makers. Ownership? The only team I put into the Rooney's stratosphere is Packer management. ( Note: the Chiefs install the GB assistant player personnel guy and look at the results.) So in the following ill conceived, written angry analysis I will give my two cents (or $1.99) worth.
Players: I will contend that our roster is littered with quite a bit of talent. Some very good, some H.O.F worthy and some past their prime. As for depth, we have a literal bag of flaming dog shit on our porch. Out OL has one, count it, I'll wait, ONE DAMN LINEMAN (DD) who would start on any other team! Yes I know, Valasco has filled in very well but he WAS cut by a team outplaying us. Yes there are injuries but the damn back ups, you know, the one's expected to maintain the "standard", would be practice squad on MOST NFL teams! Our second best offensive weapon is coming off of a terrible knee injury and is pressed into service because his f'ing replacement was costing us games. Our best WR is so damn impressed with actually doing his job that he has a celebration for getting 10 f'ing yards.............EVERY-TIME!!!!!!! Down by 20? Celebrate getting a first down, damn ridiculous. I so want Hines to come out of the stands and slap the taste out of AB's mouth when I see that shit! So I am seeing talent wasted (see; Roethlisberger, Ben. Bell. Receiving core) due to a line that couldn't start for Alabama and reserves that should be delivering my f'ing pizza. I am seeing diminished returns (see; Miller, Heath) due to injury and no viable depth. I am seeing lack of turn overs (see; Woodley, Lamar, Jones, Jarvis, Clark, Ryan). So what is next?
Coaching: I have too much respect for Coach Dad to be critical, after all (as a Chef) you can't make chicken salad out of chicken shit. Big Mac is either hurt or playing out of position. It isn't his (Coach Dad's) fault that Woodley ran down the line, ignoring his only damn responsibility, like McFadden was caring a Krispy Creme in his damn pants! Mr. Woodley, did you actually think that the other six in the front seven, along with safety help, was going to allow McFadden to walk though them for 93 yards?!? Good plan, ignore the only f'ing player on the field that could do that to, at best, help stop a three yard play! Now to the problem, according to me, HALEY! I can barely come up with the words to describe your viagra fulled love for the GD bubble screen!!!! There is a play I seen last night designed to get the ball into hiccup quick, small WRs. I believe, don't quote me now, it was called a "quick slant"? It was really weird. The receiver ran FORWARD and then, using his quickness and knowledge of the route, "slanted" at a 45 degree angle and caught the ball in stride..........past the line of scrimmage. I know, SHOCKING! I don't know if the Packers patented this move but it looked effective. Running game; Mr. Haley, if your "best" offensive lineman cannot even create a stalemate, much less a push, against the Raiders, how is it you thought it would be better sailing withe 60% of them out?!? Just another question from one of our little brained fans out here.
So, that's it for now. Sorry about the laungage, I tried to clean up the F bombs. Go Steelers!
P.S. Hopefully this time next year this will be the case: "How do you get Todd Haley off of your porch? Simple, tip him for the pizza, he will leave on his own!"
