  1. Robiskie is playing checkers while others are playing chess. He threw out that nugget about calling doubles to keep the opponents guessing. Then he calls a play they've never practiced to throw off everyone. The offense is working as planned. That play had Jackson, fans and the defenders saying WTF. Brilliant.

    Did you say that slowly before typing it?

    Did Gabbert and Marietta switch bodies?

    There was another option that was pass the sticks and behind Davis. Mariota missed it
  5. Speaking of Kyle Shanahan. People think he started running more up tempo to appease Matt Ryan. That's only half true. The QB's headset is turned off when there's 15 seconds left on the play clock. Shanahan wants the QB at the LOS, so his assistants can get a look at the defensive sets and then he calls the plays accordingly. Shanahan did this in Washington, Atlanta and is now doing it with the 49ers. McVay is now doing the same thing with the Eagles. So, it's still an OC minimizing audibles at the LOS I guess Robiskie was ahead of his time in 2004. http://www.knbr.com/2017/12/01/sean-mcvay-receiving-credit-for-kyle-shanahans-audible-strategy/
  6. Kyle Shanahan is considered a young, offensive genius. Yet, two years ago, he did not like using the no-huddle offense. In his first year as the Falcon's OC, he clashed with Matt Ryan because Ryan loved the no-huddle tempo that was implemented by....wait for it........ Mike Mularkey. When Mularkey was the Falcons' OC, he noticed how effective Ryan was running the two minute offense and taught him the intricacies of reading the defenses at the LOS and started running more up tempo offense as a change of pace instead of waiting until the two minute warning. Here's a good article on how Mularkey worked with Ryan and tailored the offense to his strengths: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d80c77e5a/printable/mularkey-has-given-falcons-extreme-makeover-on-offense "The offense is a personnel-based scheme, where Mularkey and his staff tailor plays and play calls to the abilities of the talent. It's a system Mularkey devised as Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator in 2001 with fellow offensive assistants Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt, currently the assistant head coach and head coach, respectively, with the Arizona Cardinals, who, like the Falcons, boast a 6-3 record." "It started with us meeting and evaluating our personnel, and in reality, this system started with Kordell and worked its way down from there," Mularkey said. "We saw what we had offensively, player-wise, and said, 'Let's fit what we have here. Tinker some things -- don't even install things -- that we know our left tackle can't do. Even though it looks good or another team is successful with it, let's not put any player in a position where he is uncertain if he can do it.' "You want your quarterback to have success, but if one guy isn't put in the position to be successful, you can't run that play." The only real constants through the years in Mularkey's system have been blocking tight ends and tough tailbacks. The quarterbacks and offensive lines have had a variety of skill sets, so Mularkey has had a variety of ideas, sets and schemes.
  7. Gary Kubiak is considered a great OC. Prior to coaching Manning, unless you were in the two minute offense, he didn't allow audibles. He gives the QB two plays and he believes, there are counters in those two plays to handle anything the defense throws at the QB. The QB's responsibility is to be able to execute the counters. Not change plays at the LOS. So, knowing Garcia's first NFL offense was Bill Walsh's WCO, I'm not surprised he would find any other 2004 offense inferior. It's an easy shot to take at Robiskie. I would hope he has improved in 13 years. Also, this is still Mularkey's offense. If he didn't like what Robiskie was doing, he would take over the play calling duties.
  8. Trump and Israel

    Agree. This is the thing about Trump. The guy has no core beliefs, strong convictions or ideology. For example, on one hand he supports Israel and makes the evangelicals happy. However, he doesn't mention Jews at a Holocaust memorial and makes the supremacists happy. He doesn't immediately rebuke the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville and allows them to think he's on their side. Trump rails against outsourcing, buying Chinese steels, using migrant workers and that keeps his base happy. Yet, he built his businesses on those same principles and he gets away with it. This issue with making Jerusalem the capital of Israel has nothing to do with being pro-Israel. It's about pleasing Sheldon Adelson and other rich mega donors. They have been threatening to withhold funds. He delivered for them. Now it's an income stream for him and with Adelson now strongly in his corner, he can strong-arm the establishment Republicans who needs Adelson's money for 2018 campaigns. It's not that complicated. In Trump's world, everything starts with how it impacts him. It's all about Trump. That's why he frequently makes decisions in a vacuum and his impulsive nature should have everyone concerned.
  9. Trump's base

    That would be Donald J. Trump with the signature some people or many, many people reference.
  10. Trump's base

    Trump is boasting about this poll's 45% approval rating and disregarding that the same poll has his disapproval rating at 51%. What idiot thinks a 45% approval rating in his first year is something to brag about?
  11. In defending alleged pedophile Roy Moore, Bannon criticizes Romney by saying: “Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinkie finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA,” Bannon said in his 30-minute speech at Oak Hollow Farm. “You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity,” he said, referencing Romney’s Mormon faith. Out of curiosity. Does this rhetoric work? Especially when you consider Trump got four draft deferments. Three for college and one with letters from doctors for freaking bone spurs. How can anyone bash Romney when their hero basically did the same thing if not worse? At least Romney was off trying to make the world a better place. What was Trump doing during the Vietnam war?
  12. As the Russian investigation continues this is becoming another go to line. This from the same people who hated Obama so much, they screamed Benghazi even after the senate hearings, they called him a Kenyan, a Muslim, passed around hateful memes about his wife and kept their base angry by lying about him coming for their guns, liberty and destroying the American way. This faux indignation is hilarious.
  13. Flynn

    By his LOL responses, ignorance is truly bliss.
  14. It's kind of ironic that McAdoo probably got the HC job because of his work with Manning and gets fired because of Manning. By the way, when you look at McAdoo's resume, it's pretty weak. He's never been a HC at any level. He was the Packers TE coach for 5 seasons and their QB coach for only 2 seasons. He then moved on to the Giants as OC for two seasons and then HC. Talk about fast track.
  15. Shhh. Grownups are discussing what a POS Jake is. You will have time to show off your niggardly ways when the Salvation Army rings their bell when Christmas shopping.
