In NY - Greene is looking like the "plodder" many claimed Jones was when he was allowed to walk. The splitting of carries between Charles & Jones is clearly working for the Chiefs and it's probably safe to assume the different styles makes the work easier for both guys. It sucks a big one for my fantasy team but Haley doesn't seem to care about that.

    So much for that strong start by the Tampa D. Facing Cleveland and Carolina sure can make a team look brilliant.

    Saying the Chargers slow start is cause for concern seems silly to me, though. It seems like that's the case every year. I'll believe they lose their death grip on the division when the title is handed out, especially since there's a good chance the Chiefs lose two in a row coming off their bye. Indy & Houston back to back . . . yikes. Chiefs fans must be thrilled to have Romeo in the fold heading into Indy. If only they still had Ty Law on the roster, too. ;)
    This man has been playing like a young Ty Law.

      Rayes offense was 2nd worst in the NFL after 3 games in points/game, only Carolina scores less.

        You can't have a new playbook now, it's too late. The whole team, not just the qb, has to learn it. It will be the same playbook, just a different guy calling the plays and making the adjustments.


        its off topic but u got all the answer around here so, our NT in our 3-4 gets blocked by one man every play can that be a direct correlation to why our defense is the worst in the leauge?

          I need to evaluate it before I can answer that. I gotta see if its a 1 gap or 2 gap 3-4 front.

          I haven't really put the eyeball on Hasslet's scheme yet. If the defense is playing that poorly, rarely its just one guy.

          Are teams running all over the Skins?

              Hmmm.

              I'll try to catch the Eagles/Skins game this week and I'll try to study that defense.

              I'll post my thoughts in the Skins forum.

                With the talent they have i'm leaning towards blaming the coaching. Every time i watch them it seems they're enamored to throwing to backup TEs and FBs.

                As for Peyton Hillis running for 144 against the Ravens i'm still scratching my head on that one, tells me their O-line is really good or Hillis is a lot better than anyone ever gave him credit for. Why again did Denver give up on him?

                  I thought Hillis looked like the best runner on their team by a bunch through preseason. The Cleveland Oline wasn't really a question mark heading into the year. They are a definitely a good group, so I think it's both. Still a head-scratcher to put up a game like that against the uber stingy Ravens, that's for sure.

                    Whether or not it's a one gap or two gap scheme, if your NT is getting blocked one on one consistently then it's going to be a disaster for your run defense. That means guards are able to get up to your linebackers cleanly, and IIRC your inside backers are undersized to begin with.

                    Sucks that Haynesworth is being such a turd. There's no reason you can't be a star NT in the 3-4, especially if you run a one gap scheme like Dallas does. Just look at Jay Ratliff.

                    The NT really is the cog that makes the entire 3-4 defense go. A lot of teams are going to regret letting Mt. Cody slip all the way to the second round.

                      The Browns gave him a lot of carries, blocked it up nicely, and let Hillis do the work. He went downhill and didn't do anything flashy. The gameplan was nice and executed very well. Hillis is no joke, but he is the kind of back who needs touches to get going and keep rolling.

                        Reading the Thomas Jones discussion made me think. Has their ever been a RB that has rushed for 1,000 yards with 3 different teams? Jones hasn't done it. But I guess he has a shot this year.

                          I have huge amounts of respect for the way Alex Smith has handled himself throughout his tenure in San Fran. You are absolutely right in saying that they did everything, literally everything wrong when developing a young QB. Throughout his entire career, he has been blamed and **** upon by just about everyone for the failures of the Niners, when in reality that organization deserves most of the blame. There isn't anyone who could of succeeded under those circumstances, and here he goes with ANOTHER coordinator. Best part about it all? He's just shut his mouth. There are a ton of NFL players who could learn several lessons from the way Alex Smith has conducted himself.

                            Rickey Watters is the only player to rush for 1,000 yards for 3 different teams.

                              Guys, Alex Smith sucks, why are we still trying to make this into something it isn't??

                              He's smart in a classroom, but he's dumbfounded as a football player, with a mediocre arm, and spotty accuracy. He can run a little bit.

                                I'm inclined to agree. He shows flashes, like against the Saints last week. If he were in his 2nd, maybe 3rd year, that game would be a really good sign.

                                Unfortunately, he's in his sixth. Showing flashes stopped cutting it years ago. He either needs to cement himself as a strong starting QB in this league by the end of this season or the 9ers should look at Locker, Mallett or Luck.
