    So on to the draft threads.

    At least we weren't talking draft in October!

    Always a Rams fan!

    Great season capped with a three-point performance in the Super Bowl. One of the biggest let downs I can ever remember. This year was like watching a great movie with some horrible twist-ending. Ah well.

    Thought we might show out a little better than that.

    Never anticipated the option that gave “3” points

    He looked fine. He had several explosive runs. The lack of touches is inexcusable.

    The biggest adjustment that we need to make that I KNOW we will is vertical pressure used to defeat our ZBS.

    After the last decade, I'm unbelievably in a celebratory mood. We had a fantastic season.

    We didn't win the big game, but other than Gurley who we're not sure if he's injured, we're injury free and set to be dominant next year.

    And if ANYONE thinks that McVay won't learn tons from this, they're cracked.

    That's how you vent, right? Positivity, love and support.. yeah?

    Cool.

    They didn't have to know the plays. THey just kept running the same sets and McVay wasn't adjusting. Blythe was an f'ing TURNSTILE all night. There was ALWAYS someone in Goff's face within 2 seconds, and it was always coming from a giant gaping hole on his side. It was the same thing EVERY TIME.

    The solution to stop it was dead freaking easy: Give the ball to Gurley and run the other way. Or dump the ball to Everett, given how the dude running by Blythe is leaving a tight end open. But where's Todd? Oh, he's over sitting on the bench for no reason whatsoever. Where's Gerald? Sitting by himself with his johnson in his hand. No adjustments whatsoever, and it didn't take a boy genius to see what was happening.

    Then that touchdown drive...same play three times in a row? They were even lining up the same. They were rushing to the line and not even making it look like they were audibling something else. Call a freaking time out because the line was obviously completely gassed, and give Wade 30 seconds to figure it out. Naw, that makes too much sense, let's let them walk in.

    Yeah we were ascending in 1999-2001 also... I hope I'm overreacting..

    Super Bowls are just impossible to get to.. unless you are the Patriots.

    Embarrassing! Worst Superbowl of all time.

    McVay should be embarrassed! Aweful OL, no run game, no separation. Seemed to me McVay was overwhelmed by the Superbowl.

    Well, if you'll remember, Martz did his own drafting, and our front office/GM was garbage. I think we're a better run organization now, and we likely won't succumb to the same pitfalls. This is a good team, with a good coach, good GM, and we're moving into a palace that's SUPER attractive to quality free agents. I think we're good for a while. However, even if it does all fall apart, I'm just gonna continue to appreciate what we have now. Focusing on things I can't control, or worrying about things that haven't even happened - it just doesn't do it for me anymore.

    I didn't think I would be this disappointed. 3 points. Goff threw way to late on the deep ball to cooks. What was he waiting on. Then he throws to a totally covered cooks when woods was open by 20 yards in all directions over the middle. The Pats D played great, but we could have beat them if Goff...… I'm not blaming Goff, our offensive line could have blocked better. The play calling. Obviously we need to come up with a short passing game and learn how to beat Zero coverage or any blitz. Anyway, it was a great season and I enjoyed all of it except the Bowl. I really didn't think I would be so disappointed by my Offense.

    The refs called a crap game and so did McVay.

    That said, the defense was amazing and so was our team all year.

    This hurts but I can live with it since I know this is just the beginning.

    But they didn't know our plays.

    It just took Darth Hoodie 19 years to finally get a decent bead on the ZBS. Pretty sure McVay will be able to compensate MUCH quicker than that... as in 19 weeks.

    They did what the Bears did and we didn't have an answer and that's unfortunate for today, but it won't be forever.

    Ok. MCvay didn't call a good game. Goff got his ass kicked all day.

    Goff didn't play well.

    Oh. And Gurley really is still hurt.he cant walk without a limp.
