Marvin, re: LMJ, I said the same thing towards end of last yr. I said the same thing at the start of this yr. Wrong twice. It would be nice if it is correct this time for 2nd half
I predicted we would win 1 of first 3 games. I didn't think the win was going to be GB. I hoped we would win 2. We didn't.
I said at end of last season, JH was going to make kap less mobile, make him a pocket passer. Well, in game 1 he wasn't and we kicked gBs azz. In games 2 and 3, it looked like Coach told Kap, "DON'T move" just stay in the pocket and don't get hurt". We lost both, and kap looked ,well, like a wooden statue who Coach had told ,
"Don't move. Stay in the pocket"...Ugliest part of that was the really ugly sacks he took. Basically, I guess he did what he was told and just stood in the pocket. Then game 4 and he got permission to move around again,, and next 4 games he looked better each game. Caveat: they were all weak sisters teams. Hopefully that kap improvement holds up against Cam and Brees and SEA. We'll see.
STs look like a group from a different planet this yr. Actually look like STs 2 yrs ago, which were super. These guys are terrific. Kudos to trent, and JH for putting together an A+ ST.
D minus Aldon has been impressive. Had no thots of him being gone. That is a hard pill to swallow. Hope he gets back before next week.
D minus Aldon has been impressive! just not many sacks.
Coaching has been way off from what I had expected. I was sure we would use LMJ, Baldwin(fantastic trade making lemonade out of a lemon, AJ)., Hunter, Vance, but no, Coach H has a hard head and he plays kyle...that was really unexpected. HaRo has cut way back on what kap had to learn to do , to achieve. I pray they get around , or he gets around to being facile with multiple reads, say FOUR. Right now it is one designated receiver and I never thot that would happen...but it did.
Draft just looks better and better, in the FIRST YR.....Eric Reid, I like vaccaro, but I was wrong. Reid is phenomenal. Vance has performed very well, but Coach will not put him down as designated receiver or as a 2nd read....VERY Disappointing....and especially same for Baldwin...we get.....kyle, yuck.
Knew I wouldn't miss our all pro safety and his incredible penalties, sometimes stooped penalities. Had no idea Reid would be way better. Impossible. But true.
I had us at 6-2 but had no idea so many teams would tank bad, eg, ATL, NYG, Jags, and Texans. I had Texans down as a loss. Oh well...
Bunch of other things but seeing lemonier, reid, vance, traimaine , even Baldwin on blocking, hunter back...and Boldin...cripes, what a deal. And lastly who would have guessed alex wins first 8 games, making that conditional a 2nd? Wow. That is one helluva season...and we only played half. Oh, as noted above I too am a bit concerned if SEA didn't get under our cap. I hope that is wrong.
