The backwards pass by Lamonica in the AFL champioship and all the Baltimore mistakes in the Super Bowl.
Do you really want to witness this same sh*t next year? Getting yourself excited all offseason just to witness the same level of ineptitude on offense yet again?
Another year of deluding yourself into thinking that Sanchez only needs another receiver or two to develop into the player we drafted him to be?
Another year of Rex proclaiming that the current roster consists of the best team he has ever coached?
Another year of Tannenbaum making the personell decisions?
Personally, I'm sick of it.
Winning a couple of meaningless games at the end of the season doesn't do dick. It just delays the inevitable for another year.
How does losing the rest of our games fix your concerns? Not busting balls here I just don't see the logic of rooting for my team to lose in this case. Sanchez is coming back, just because we have money locked up in him does not mean he will be handed the starting job. Who knows what the offseason might bring.
You want Rex and Tanny gone? Unlikely with the money Woody still owes them both. If we turn it around next year, it is going to be with the same nucleus we have now whether we lose out or win out this year!
Deep down you know what I'm saying is true.
Sanchez is what he is, a mediocre at best QB with a knack for turning the ball over.
Rex is what he is, a very good DC who just isn't cut out to be a HC.
Tannenbaum is what he is, a glorified accountant masquerading as a GM.
If you think we're going to win a championship under these mooks...well, that's your MO.
When was the last time we beat a winning team?
Rex and Tanny will both be back, as will Sanchez. Tanny is the only one perhaps at risk of a demotion. All were, are and will get one more full year in some form before they're truly at risk of being fired.
And if Rex can go 2-1 in the next three, he'll be:
8-8 (Sanchez Starts Proving He's a Bust)
8-8 (Lost Revis, Lost Holmes and Sanchez finishes proving he's a bust)
Four years, not one losing season. And the most recent a year where we lost our unquestionably best two players and playmakers with Revis and Holmes, have suffered throgh one bad (but vital) pick in Sanchez (who we're stuck with one more season) and have a number of young players playing key roles who will ony get better (Hill, Kerley, Powell, Coples, Wilkerson, etc).
I doubt there is a single owner in the NFL who would fire Rex this offseason. Maybe Dan Snyder, maybe Jerry Jones, maybe Al Davis (RIP). Thats about it. Every other team would generally follow the Cowher Plan, and keep going with Rex till they either win, or truly suck and go 4-12.
I agree with your comments on Rex, Sanchez and Tanny... I guess if you subscribe to losing out will get rid of them your argument makes sense. However my fear is we demote Tanny and the rest stays the same. If you are going to make changes they need to clean house at the QB position, HC and GM. Unfortunately based on #6 contract and what good Rex has done. I don't see Woody doing it.
To get it fixed you hire a new GM and let him take care of it with no strings attached. 2013 will be the wrong year to let that happen. So yeah, I want them to compete for the playoffs as long as they are alive and then we see where next year gets us.
