"Cook" it up!
Like I said, you earned your name.
@Bunyan speak now forever hold thy peace.
Well, McGloin's Total QBR was like 99.3, so I think it's safe to say that we should win the Super Bowl by 2 scores.
Next week in Denver, against a formidable secondary and pass rush, with Phillips throwing all available bodies to stop the run, we will see what chance, if any, McGloin gives us in the playoffs. Not gonna hold my breath. But we beat them last year with Carr not doing much, except avoiding turnovers and converting in the redzone.
That last bit...
Is that still part of the offense?
If that last throw to Cooper is any indication, McGloin's gonna be slinging it. Just hope the Redhead's on time and on fire. He's certainly not afraid of small windows.
Merry Christmas by the way.
You dare challenge me, sir?
Merry Motherfucker, motherfucker.
I'd include a "Happy New Year", but I'm simply not that optimistic.
This is a great opportunity for McGloin, in part because the expectation most will have for him is -- FAILURE.
I mean, the big MVP hotshot went down. He was the straw that was stirring the drink. In steps the backup and and he's just little Matty the yard gnome.
When the expectation for you is failure and you're at the wheel of a pretty decent offensive operation, that's not a bad spot to be in.
Will be fun to see how this turns out.
He should at least be able to scramble...having kept away from Sandusky at Penn St. Hopefully McGloincloth doesn't expose himself...
Oh I see what you did there ....
All he has to do is win one out of the next two games. If he gives us more than anyone can do Carr''s job. MVP indeed.
Mcgloin will be throwing it up when he feels pressured. Again it'll be on the WR's to save him. Funny thing is that they have proven to have that ability as shown when Carr takes chances(he's gotten so good at reading defenses that he hardly takes as many with his arm deep as he used to).
The problem is that they better be really really good on those jump balls.
Mcgloin can at least throw a good seam route. I know I just complimented his Brian scalabrine off the bench ass. Fuuuccckkkk it!
I always get them confused...is that Siegfried or Roy
We are going to need to simplify the offense to run heavy play action basic(pretty much the pick and roll of the NFL).
Earl Morrall saved the Dolphins season in 1972, their undefeated season. Griese also suffered a broken fibula
"For a second time, Don Shula resuscitated Earl Morrall’s career. Now the Miami Dolphins’ head man, Shula spent the $100 waiver fee to snag Morrall as his backup quarterback. Set with All-Pro QB Bob Griese as his starter, Shula was just looking for some insurance and he remembered what Morrall did for him back in ’68. With Morrall newly installed on their bench, the Miami Dolphins began the 1972 season as the defending AFC champions. Griese picked up where he left off the previous year and guided his team to a 4-0 start, but early in the fifth game disaster struck. Griese suffered a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle. Amazingly, for the second time in his career a future Hall of Fame quarterback went down and backup Earl Morrall had to come in to the save the day for a Super Bowl contender. The first time it happened, in 1968, Morrall lost but a single regular season game. This time, he ran the table. 10-0.
What did Morrall’s teammates think as he stepped onto the field that first time? Well, center Jim Langer claimed to have no doubts about the new QB's ability to get the job done, saying “We felt Earl was prepared and moved on.” But other players were perhaps a bit more candid. Tight End Jim Mandich said: ''I remember seeing Griese lying there in pain, with his ankle all contorted and here's this 38-year-old man with a flattop haircut coming on the field, and I thought, Oh hell, it's all over.'' An understandable reaction, but turns out it wasn’t over after all. To put it simply, Morrall played brilliantly in relief, averaging 9.1 yards per attempt, earning All-Pro honors, and winning the NFL’s comeback player of the year award at season's end.
The wild card.
He gonna scheme shit up. Ugh.
Good news is we've built an offense capable of getting 3-4 different backs 100 yards... bad news is I have absolutely no faith in Groin... he simply doesnt take care of the ball, and it's going to cost us.
He's capable of winning some games... doubt we can get past the AFC Championship with him around our neck..
Anyone else want Labron to die on Christmas on national television?
