Week 15

I figure write this while all my ideas are still in my head. Jets laid an egg tonight in Philly. The ONLY bright spot of tonight was the special teams. They didn’t turn over the ball and gave the jets good field position all night. Defense couldn’t stop a nose bleed to save themselves. Vick threw all over us and once again hurt us with a tight end. Eric Smith isn’t a good safety at all and has to go. The defense didn’t take away the edges to keep Vick contained at all. He ran all over us and even got a TD against the “vaunted” jets defense! McCoy dropped 100 yards rushing on us and 3 touchdowns. While that helped me in fantasy football it was pathetic against the jets. Offense was a flat out joke tonight. Schotty did nothing to help Sanchez out with the protection. Hunter and Ducasse can’t play football at all and it was showed. Babin destroyed the right side of the line which is where Woody use to play. PUT A GOD DAMN TIGHTEND OVER THERE TO HELP OUT!!!! They had free rushers taking shots at Sanchez all night. Today’s goat is Holmes because of his bone headed plays. Now some people including myself can’t fault him on the fumble because the guy came flying it and hit the ball with his helmet. The touchdown celebration was uncalled for and should be punished. This crap HAS to end now because this team won’t go far in the playoffs playing like this. Schotty has a game plan that works and just gets rid of it. I read online this past Friday that Miami may be interested in Schotty I think any fan can hope he is taken.

Desean Jackson

This one may spark a controversy but I think it’s worth talking about. A lot of people have gotten on Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson for his play this year. He has averaged 1,000 yards and 5 TD’s in each of his first 3 years. This year he is supposed to be under both those numbers. I may be one of the few people to defend him on this topic. First look at how badly the Eagles screwed him over. He was drafted 49th overall back 2008 by the Eagles. Over the next 3 years he has shown he can produce in the NFL time and time again. We all remember the Miracle at the NEW Meadowlands when he took that punt back. This year he wanted a new contract but the Eagles would give him one. He came to camp and said he would play to show he deserves one but other things changed. They signed Asmougha, Rodgers-Cromartie, Young, Jenkins and Brown. They all took decent contracts to come and play. As Jackson id be sitting there saying well I’ve have been with this team for 3 years and produced. These guys can just walk in and take all that money? He is annoyed at the team. Secondly I believe they aren’t using him correctly. At the NFL combine in 2008 he ran a 4.35 40 yard dash. That same year Chris Johnson ran a 4.25 40 so Desean has some speed in him. What they should be doing is telling him to go on a long streak up the sideline and bomb a deep ball to him. With his speed all he has to do is adjust to the ball and get it. During the course of the year I have seen him on little short routes which is not what he should be used for. He is a deep threat with speed I don’t think anyone can touch. Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis had 4.38 40 time at his pro day in 2007. Desean Jackson may be one of the fastest guys in the NFL today yet they aren’t using him for the deep threat.

Coaching changes 2012

With 12 weeks of NFL football over with. Here are some coaching changes I believe will be made during the offseason. Included will be already fired head coach Jack Del Rio. I predicted he would be gone last year but they kept him on a year too long.

Jack Del Rio – As a head coach he went 68-71 over 9 nines and 1-2 in the playoffs. He never led the Jaguars to a division title in his time there. I truly believed he would be gone after last season but I was mistaken. They haven’t had a winning record since 2007 and I felt his time was up.

Tom Coughlin – I apologize to any Giants fan reading this. If this season ends without a playoff berth I truly believe he will be gone. After last year’s debacle where they gave up a 21 point lead to the Eagles then took a complete beat down by the Packers, I truly thought he would be gone. The Giants kept him on staff but I think this is going to be it. As I said IF this team doesn’t make the playoffs for a third straight year. Ever since the Super Bowl run they had in 2007 here is what the Giants have done. 2008 they finished first in the NFC East and overall 1 seed in the playoffs with a 12-4 record. They were one and done in the divisional round of the playoffs verse the Philadelphia Eagles. 2009 they finish 3rd in the NFC East with an 8-8 record and 2010 finished second in the NFC East with a 10-6 record. It should be noted 2009 and 2010 they failed to make the playoffs after late season collapses.

Andy Reid – Yes I said good ole Andy Reid. In the regular season he is an amazing 122-81 but in the post season he is only 10-9. He is known to have great teams through the years but this year was supposed to be magical. He had a “dream team” of players and I thought would at least make the playoffs. At 4-8 they are all but done now. He also made an offensive line coach his defensive coordinator. He should have just called me up to run the defense. I need a job Andy, hook me up man! He was known for going to 5 NFC Championship games in his tenure. That is an impressive stat but at 1-4 I wouldn’t be talking about that. He also lost the only Super Bowl he ever went to.

Mike Shanahan – In only his second year with Washington he has done NOTHING to improve that team. He basically pushed Mcnabb and Haynesworth out the door when he got there. He wanted nothing to do with Mcnabb and it was evident all season long. Shanahan may have had a point though due to the fact Mcnabb is current unemployed. He never used Haynesworth to his strengths, Shanahan wanted a yes sir kind of guy and Albert wasn’t going to do that. I think they will be fed up due to the fact they have been terrible both these years.
