    I guess I deserve it.
    I laughed. Sorry, I should have acknowledged the laugh... got distracted by real world crap.

      As sickening as that video was, I couldn't have been more relieved by it. Replacing a receivers coach is a hell of a lot easier than replacing a franchise QB you just locked up for the better part of a decade.

      Plus, any "Carson sucks" posts I may have written are still technically accurate and immune to any future geighbacking.
      This. There's no question he's been exceptionally bad over the last 2 games but at the end of the day he's also made the big throws that should have won this team a couple games earlier in the season.

      The Orlovsky video along with some commentary by former players (Bryce Treggs) was eye opening for me too. Thankfully this next draft is deep at receiver and it should be hard to miss if Howie takes a swing early.

      What infuriates me though is how quick Doug has been to get away from the run with how bad the receivers have been. Miles Sanders barely getting any touches in back to back 2nd halves is inexcusable.

      I'm worried they will only recycle position coaches and not cut the disease off at the head (Groh).

        Well, neither of us are being paid millions to professionally evaluate NFL talent so we get to say whatever we want, even to the point of being hypocritical. That's the joy of being a fan.

          The receivers are not recognizing cover 1 versus cover 2 and do not adequately react to the leverage being played by the DBs.

          Additionally they are failing to execute their vertical releases.

          Nor are they using proper technique when the safety opens his hips and runs to collision on an inside release, which should be countered by a speed release outside, to bait him and win back inside with a violent rip.

          They also fail to high point the ball at optimum ups.

          Its simple and clear as a bell.
          I didn’t laugh because you made as much sense as the 1000 guys doing “all 22” from their mom’s basement while proclaiming to be football savants. Kudos!

            In Wentz's case, we have an entire season of evidence that no receiver on this team has the first clue of where to be or what to do on any given play. At this point, coaching is looking like the most likely culprit. Carson Walch is going to be the first one pushed off the boat as soon as this season is over.
            The Patriots exposed McVay and Goff in the Super Bowl by changing their defense set up after helmet mike turned off. Now everyone does it.

              Interesting you say that. I remember watching something maybe last season showing how much communication Boy Wonder and Goff had before the snap. McVay might as well have told him where to throw it.

                  This timeline for the WRs in 2019 is staggering and really puts the blame squarely on Howie. I would also add to this list when they didn’t claim Josh Gordon on waivers...woulda been a low-risk/high reward situation.
