  • I really dont like willis. Dont ask me why, but I think our offense would be more effective with thomas. Willis is as talented as anyone, but damn, does he ever hit a hole?

      Agreed, I don't think we'll resign him after next year and I really wouldn't mind seeing a RB brought in.

      • I know what you guys mean about McGahee and I agree to an extent. Both the offensive line and McGahee are way to inconsistent for my likings but I would much rather improve the offensive line and stick with Willis than get rid of him and try and find the perfect running back for an average offensive line.

        Today Jauron really should have talked to Willis about hitting the holes or told Thomas to go out there and just plow someone to motivate Willis. I noticed that Willis wasn't afraid to hit somebody in the passing game when blocking for Losman, but he wouldn't run into them with the ball in his hands. He really wasn't hitting the line at a good speed today, but it its not like many other backs have done a lot better against that defense. Here are the top rushers against the Chargers this year:

        Week1: Justin Fargas 5/35
        Week2: Vince Young 5/24
        Week4: Jamaal Lewis 15/34
        Week5: Willie Parker 14/57
        Week6: Frank Gore 10/55
        Week7: Larry Johnson 28/132
        Week8: Stephen Jackson 18/84
        Week9: Reuben Droughns 19/36
        Week10: Rudi Johnson 18/85
        Week11: Mike Bell 20/90
        Week12: Justin Fargas 14/32
        Week13: Willis McGahee 16/26

        Yes, I realize ours is among the bottom of that in terms of production, but at least we put up a fight against this team. We also have one of the worst offensive lines of the teams on this list, either us or the Browns pretty much, the Raiders line isn't that bad at run blocking, just they never run the damn ball because they are always playing from behind. We also were playing from behind in that game so we couldn't let Willis run much once we were down by 17 at half.

        I agree that Willis hasn't been hitting the holes hard enough and has been dancing too much, but I don't really think that Anthony Thomas gives us a better chance of winning any games, mostly because in my opiniong Willis is a much better pass blocker and receiver, none of that matters as much if we are winning, but we are playing from behind A LOT and have been behind and coming back in the past three games.

        I think that we should stick with Willis for the future, DWhitner, do you think that everyone on our offense should be releases when their contract is up? I mean you are negative towards pretty much everyone on our offense and get your opinions swayed week to week. No offense bro, its just weird.

        I don't think we would do any better with anyone we pick up off the market or the draft in the next 3 years, maybe once Willis is around 3 years when Willis is 28, that is when we should look for someone else unless Willis develops a chronic fumbling problem or keeps on playing like he did today. But he has some really great games and strong preformances ever few weeks and you have to hope that he can consistently have games like those ones and hope that we can improve Losman's game to get up in games early and improve the offensive line to get Willis at least an extra 0.5 yards per carry.

          There's only two players I sway with and thats Willis McGahee and JP Losman, prior to the Houston game I really truly thought we were going nowhere with him but he really stepped it up. To me he's proven he's capable of being our starter and I'm alright with him as long as we get better around him.

          As for Willis McGahee, theres just so many high expectations with the guy and he really just hasn't done much. Sometimes he'll have a game where you just say wow. But as of late he looks like he's scared to get hit, he takes to much time, he dosen't hit the hole strong enough, he's really just inconsistent and not the back a lot of people think he is. That's just how I feel about Willis.

          What also bugs me with him is its always a gimmick, his 2nd year in the leauge, the first time he played he was awesome. But then with Mularkey he put on too much weight and "lost his burst", he proclaimed himself the best back in the leauge, he wasn't fully ready with his knee, this offseason it was all about him getting leaner and faster and he's identical to himself last year.

          Well I'm pretty sure Willis is a FA next offseason and I'm not so sure we'll retain him...

            This is where you lost me because he really isn't even healthy, he has broken ribs and probably should have waited until next week to come back. Coming back early is only making the recovery time longer, now his ribs probably won't be 100% until week 16.

            I think that he got way too many carries early. He wasn't able to adjust his game from what it was at the end of last year when he was over weight to what it is now that he is in better shape. Anthony Thomas should get 5-8 carries a game and Willis should get 18-24 in my opinion, this way neither are under played and neither are completely spent after 16 games, hopefully going into the post season. This will also lower the risk of McGahee getting injured and in turn Thomas because he has to carry the ball around 30 times if Willis is out because the coaches don't seem to want to give Shaud Williams any carries.

              It's always an excuse for Willis, I'm just tired of the guy I guess and I don't see us sticking with him when his contract is up next offseason.

              • The boys in black and white really gave us the shaft in that game. Every questionable call went in favor of the Chargers and at points critical mistakes from the referees really killed our momentum. Other than that I'm proud of how tough the Bills played.

                Earlier in the year they wouldn't have put up a fight but you can see a change in this team after the Houston game.

                J.P. Losman needs to clean up the little mistakes. He wasn't as good as weeks past but you can see little improvements from him every week. It's imperative that he gets better with each game.

                Our problem is that we don't have control at the point of attack. Hopefully Levy notices this and adresses our interior line problems on both sides of the ball.

                  I agree, I think the key point that needs to be fixed on the o-line is at Offensive Guard because we don't seem to get any push from them, Preston especially in the run game. It might be a bit much to hope for but I hope we can get Eric Steinbach in FA to play LG, maybe our first round pick will be Justin Blalock and he could play RG.

                            • Yeah I know McGahee has no line to work with and that he's playing with bad ribs and a inconsistent QB but it could be time to look for another RB. I'm not sold on him as a player and he's going to want a big paycheck at the end of next year and it'd be best if we found another RB in the draft a late first day pick where guys like McGill are going to land.

                              We might even try getting Michael Turner from the Chargers. He's a RFA at the end of the year and they might have to let him go.
