    Play CornWash, damn it! If Shea only weighs 242, I can't imagine how a guy who is stronger, faster, and 25 pounds heavier can't outplay him. I now believe that there is something going on that they aren't telling us.

    It's no secret that Shea was "over-listed" at 260 to begin with, that he tried to gain weight this past offseason and couldn't keep it on, and that his ideal playing weight is about 245. The only ones who don't seem to recognize or acknowledge the obvious implications of this are Phil Emery and Mel Tucker.

    I think they will give him some reps soon. I hope so anyway.

    Meow. The way it's been going there hasn't been much to say I haven't already said but I'll say it again anyway just in case someone missed it;

    PHIL PHUCT UP!

    So now you can all agree or disagree again but as far as I'm concerned I think I called this one right months ago and I don't a phat phuck who agrees or not. I didn't then either but it gets boring debating logic with those who refuse to use it.

    Well that's because if you told Ric the sky was blue he'd tell you it was green and maybe in his world it is. From most of my debates with him I'm sure the two of us certainly live under different color skies. I got bored with his uber emotions and lack of logic so I'm out of it now. Though after watching McCown play a decent game on Sunday maybe I should call Col. Sanders and see if they can do a special 8 piece bucket for Ric with broasted crow. Original recipe of course. He played OK for a guy who doesn't
    even belong in the NFL huh? Just so long as we don't expect that to happen once teams get from tape on him we'll be fine. He won't embarrass himself that much I'm sure of.

    I'm not sure what the whole game is there but there's game being played that much I can see. There's nothing wrong with Pep and it isn't age it's a bad case of I don't want to be here. I commented on what he told the media when they asked him about the decline is his production in another post. After telling them the season isn't over yet he paused and then said it's being affected by scheme and the way I'm being asked to play. Hmmmmm, if it's the same scheme Lovie was running, and according to Tucker it would be (emphasis on would) then why is he being asked to play differently? Because it's not the same scheme? Probably. The number of sacks and pressures Tucker defenses in Jax put up kept them in the bottom ten of the NFL in all but one of his four years there. Think we might be on to something here?

    He's not a DLIne coach and he's never been one but wherever he's been sacks and pressures decline. Funny huh? Why would Emery hire a guy like that to coach a scheme whose very success depends on strong pass rush? This should make you even more concerned. When Lovie was here Gil Byrd was the Safeties position coach but Lovie was very actively involved with coaching them himself as well because they were so important in his bend but don't break coverage schemes. They were to keep the ball and receiver in front of them at all costs. That was key.

    Well Lovie is gone and so is Gil Byrd but guess what position Mel Tucker played in college? John Hoke is still the DB coach and works with the corners but they never replaced Gil Byrd or even an assistant for Hoke so who might we suspect is working with the Safeties? Can anyone else find a reason why Conte and Wright were considered one of the strong points of the defense last year and we all felt we were set at Safety for quite a while yet this year they can't cover your grandmother and we've already given up more plays over 20 yards in seven games than we did all of last year!

    Yeah Mel Tucker coaches DBs about as well as Mike Tice coached linemen and their skills as coordinators are about equal as well.

    I don't know what Phelonious Phil the Phuck Stick is up to but if he's looking for an excuse to unload a lot of aging high dollar talent next year this is surely the way I'd go about it and he'll have the media's blessing. Or at least the Trib's because they always pump up management over players. Halas bought and paid for that years ago the crafty old bastard. Now you know why I keep telling people forget what the media is telling you. What do your eyes see? What do your ears hear? I swear to God some dikhead writes and article about something and half this place just shakes their heads in agreement. Just like the Cutler hater's who only used their eyes to read articles slamming his behavior or criticizing his moods or expressions for four years. He's damn good football player and he's also damn intelligent so if they had to put up with the asshole OCs he did what would their faces look like and what kind of mood would they be in.

    Maybe I'm just pissed off at a world full of people who are so lazy that they don't bother to learn enough to think for themselves. They'd rather be robots and that's a very dangerous trend I see developing. It's just ridiculous the way the media controls public sentiment and with lies and half truths to boot. Their motto is never let the facts stand in the way of a good story.

    Well that's enough ranting to last for another month or so. I'm outta here.

    Tucker should be gone yesterday. One of the main reasons Tucker will keep his job is b/c of injuries. If Phil and Trestman are ok w/seeing McC violated like a parking meter when his hand in the dirt then good luck with all that. If a coach misuses a player with glowing weaknesses then what does that say about his ability to adapt? If that's the glaring ones what about the lesser ones?

    Nine times out of ten I'd give a coach another year to implement his scheme but the lack of fundamentals, players regressing, missed keys in coverage, and misused players it's time to pull the plug. But if I were a bettin' man I'd say he'll stay about 3 years.

    I know it's all too easy to "blame the coach when things aren't going well" but that's why he's the guy in charge. And Tucker is that guy. And he's totally mismanaged the DL, Shea especially. I want him gone yesterday and won't shed a tear when he eventually gets his walking papers.

    I repeat: THE D SUCKED BALLS FROM THE VERY GET-GO EVEN BEFORE THE PARADE OF INJURIES SET IN.

    Note to Chicago Bears management:
    Don't ever hire any coach who is a castoff from the biggest clown school joke of a franchise in recent NFL history---Jacksonville.

    He's a much better fit as OLB than he is as DE... I still think he was drafted to play as OLB in a 3-4 by Emery

    I still think his drafting was a major screwup by Emery since we don't run a 3-4 and didn't have the personnel to switch to one in the foreseeable future. Still don't.

    And I still think his continued misuse at DE remains an epic fail entirely on Mel Tucker.
