    Keep drafting nothing but QBs every year until we get it right.

    DR did zip as WR coach. Now this season, IMO, there has been a noticable improvement across the board with this guy

    Every reciever on the team is better. Even the bench guys produce when given snaps. Hell SJ got a rookie not only starting but producing for the Titans - the TITANS! Unheard of stuff there


    2011 and 12 were not exactly seasons where I looked at the WR/TEs and said. Wow that there is a bunch of guys who look better now than they did last year.



    YMMV

    LOL exactly

    2013 the WRs actually look like they know what they are doing. And the young guys are producing

    Fucc that. It doesn't matter who the qb is when were dropping back to pass 60+ times to pass in a game after spending millions to develop a "running identity". Play calling early in the year was waaaay too predictable. Run, run, pass, punt was all too common in the KC n Seattle game. Locker has flashed signs of being capable of making plays but is clearly not our answer at QB. I'm so ****in tired of hearing jets n giants fans (I'm from NJ) talk **** about our team because we have the talent to win this division and fail multiple times. We need to draft a QB 2nd-3rd round and sign a veteran who has playoff experience although I better be careful cause pick 6 hasselbeck technically had experience. Btw anyone ever notice how much of a fagg his brother is on ESPN? Lol but seriously were a quality QB away from a deep playoff run with all else in place

    This and and a decent HC with a good OC calling plays we can make a run. We haven't been creative at all either, I have yet to see a reverse or flea flicker. Gadget plays may not work all the time but 1 or 2 times a season is worth a shot imo. We need some creativity damnt! I can't complain though because we have been running some PA passes the last few weeks and I guess that is creativity at best when all 31 other teams are already doing that lol

    That is the difference maker. A star QB. Two types of QBs in the NFL. Star QBs and guys who are not good enough. If we have a star and he stays healthy we are easily a 10 win team. Can say the same about a lot of teams. Buffalo and Cleveland for example.

    Jim Rome once asked Barry Switzer what the biggest difference between college and the NFL is. Switzer said that in the NFL you need a star QB. In college you can get by without one but in the NFL you need one.

    in all honesty KB is a nuttcase comming off injury for what - forever now.

    yeah he has clearly underperformed and has been a dissapointment, but he was that under DR as well.

    And outside a handful of games KB has not been a dominant WR in the NFL.
