Does the fact that some of us are just hoping to hang around in the Texans game and not get blown out already sum up what kind of team we are? Houston is a .500 team. Good teams eat .500 teams up for breakfast. We must not be very good if we're worried about getting blown out in Houston. We don't scare anyone. You go into Green Bay and you think, "Damn, we have to put up with Rodgers and the crowd." Philadelphia you think, "Hopefully McNabb and Jackson don't kill us." Patriots make you think, "They'll destroy us if Brady gets going."
How about if we were to play the 49ers? "Damn, hopefully Andy Lee doesn't have a career game and average 60 yards a punt."
We don't scare anyone. Our offensive line is pathetic. Our QB has the arm of a teenager and can't even make half the throws that are required from an NFL-quality QB. Teams just think, "We'll blitz them until they choke." They're aggressive against us because our offense is anemic.
Sorry for the negativity, but I'm not seeing good things from this team in the next two games. I'm seeing a couple blowouts, embarrassment, and a lot of changes coming up. Only then will we be able to turn the season around. We just don't have the right guys in right now, and the guys that should be in are either on the bench or no longer with the team, sent away for nothing. We've made horrible decision after horrible decision.
1)The hiring of Raye.
2)Starting Shaun Hill. I see no potential. Even if he guides us to some wins, he'll eventually be replaced by someone better. Why waste time?
3)Drafting Coffee, who is similar to Gore in style, but a far worse player.
4)Starting Bruce despite him showing signs that he's lost it.
5)Using too many 2 TE sets
6)Using Delanie Walker on kickoffs
7)Keeping Jason Hill, probably one of our best WRs, on the bench
8)Not using one of our shiftiest WRs, Michael Spurlock, in any other fashion besides "The Tazer."
9)Getting rid of Sheets for absolutely nothing, when he's probably better than Robinson and Coffee. He would've been a great change-of-pace back to play behind Gore. He's like Charlie Garner. But, why keep him? It's not like he could help us. After all, we're a running team. What good is a running back on a running team that runs? Nope. 'Cuz apparently, there's more to a running back than running, because we don't want our precious golden-armed QB going down with injury since Sheets isn't a good blocker. That would be disastrous to our season.
10)Having 7 freakin' WRs on the roster, despite being a running team.
I could go on, but I think you get the point. It starts from the top. I'm starting to get the sense that this team is run by a bunch of airheads. Good teams make good decisions. Bad teams make bad decisions.
I love this team, but not who's running it right now. Hopefully, something happens, something clicks, a light bulb goes off, or ANYTHING in Houston. We need this game badly. I'll be rooting for my 49ers, but I'm not expecting much.
