- Big-Play Offense: Where's Desean Jackson's big-play ability been this year ? If he can't blow the top off the coverage then his value to the offense decreases drastically. So first things first, with or without a new contract, Desean has to become a bigger contributor for this offense to succeed. Shady and Maclin have been okay to great, so can't complain about those two. I think Vick has played decent so far, but I would like to see him run the ball and use his legs a lot more then he has in the last 2 games, his running ability adds a totally different dimension to the offense. So step it up offense, and stop effing around.
- D showing up for all 4 quarters: Stop giving up games in the 4th quarter when your team is up.... grrrrrrrrrrrrr. Alrite, first things first, I wanna see some production out of Nnamdi, he's supposed to be a shut down corner, but he's been just as good as Dmitri Patterson in the last 3 games, if he continues his ways then we have a long 5 years to go with him. I give him one more game to show up, he's officially on notice. The rest of the D is who we thought they were, just gonna have to make the best out of a bad situation, hopefully the d-line can still generate some pass rush with two of their fastballs out for another week.
- Coaching: (Deep Breath) There's enough blame to go around with the coaches on the team, get your act together and stop giving Owen Schmitt the ball twice at the goal line in one series. Be on top of challenging plays and save your timeouts for a rainy day. Work the refs and protect your Qb from all these borderline hits that most Qb's get the benefit of the doubt of. Juan, put Nnamdi in man-to-man and use your safeties somewhere else. Use one of your great cb's on the tight end this week and shut down Vernon Davis. Andy if you're gonna sit there and say that you have to do a better job at things, then do it, don't keep repeating the same stuff after each press conference.
At the end of the day, Just Win. Get it to 2-2 cuz heads might start rolling if we're 1-3 and fans will start freaking out and start watching baseball. If it gets ugly then I'm switching to the Phillies for October. At least they can bring home the trophy. (Random thought: I'm just wondering how our defense would have looked if we would have just re-signed Stewart Bradley to go along with Jamar Chaney... hmmmm, interesting concept). Anyways, I don't wanna hear any excuses after this one, give us something to celebrate on Sunday, especially your paying customers at the Linc. Over and out....
