NFL Thread: Thoughts on the game south of the 49th

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

9-4 after in their last 13 with no running backs and the feature tight end injured . Not too bad for a guy who's too short . Odd how he is so despised by some . Not my favourite qb but he is probably in the top 10 at his position .

And that is it, he's in the well into bottom 1/2 of that 10. At <$1 million he was a hell of a bargain, at + $20 million he's a mediocre QB cap boat anchor. Wonder why they can't afford an O line?

That feature TE wasn't doing so well. DangeRunt is too short to throw those quick strikes into the linebacker seams without them being tipped at the line. Graham uselessness at blocking has been more a hindrance to the offence that his pass catching has helped.

No running back, so Lynch, now Rawls are the keys to the offense......

During the runts first season there was an article written that calculated the extra time a ball was in the air from differing release heights in order to clear the arms of linemen. DangeRunt is giving defenders time for an extra step or two to close on receivers downfield. No surprise that his deep ball success has come with the flat out speedster Tyler Lockette this season. The only other guy he's had like that was Harvin, who was miss-used in endless jet sweeps and quick outs. No wonder Percy was pissed.

Three wins this season were because of officiating errors. That 9-6 (convenient you omitted the first two games of the season to pad the stats) is easily 6-9.

DangeRunt followers love quoting the useless stat of QB wins while ignoring the reciprocal should apply. Losses then fall on the QB, not the O-line, defence or injuries.....They also ignore the defensive points and field position turnovers have given the Runt lead offence to work from.

Should we talk about red zone efficiency and third down conversion....LOL

So what teams has Seattle beat this season? Any real contenders. The only playoff bound team they beat was the Vikings who were without their key defenders all the up the middle, line, line backer and safety. They struggled to beat the Steelers in an offensive shootout and only broke clear when Big Ben went down and officiating started blowing calls to their benefit. The rest have been hapless patsies, ooo, Browns, 49'rs, Bears or injury riddle gimps, Cowboys, Ravens, Vikings.

I put a ton of the blame on John Schneider. He's become untouchable for his late round gem drafting, but what has he done with the easy first round picks? Why has he refused to address the weak O-line for the last three drafts? Why did he give DangeRunt + $20million?

The Seahawks are going nowhere in a hurry and DangeRunt is a major reason why. Running around in circles in the backfield while waiting for something to develop is not a game plan.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Fair enough . Who would you rather be the qb ? The guy was one play away from being a back to back champ . All the top 10-15 guys are 15-22 million annually . He is a good qb but not an elite one . His pay rate might be a bit high but it isn't crippling the salary structure.

I would have traded him after the first Super Bowl (the win) and drafted Bridgewater and still be paying a rookie contract.

.......and the first Super Bowl........the Navaro Bowman Rule......
