    got to believe Run D woes had a lot to do with him drafting Shaugnessy and Houston, I don’t think he drafted them to rush the passer, which is true , we can’t even get near QBs, Houston would do fine job rushing from inside

    Every Laker great says that Kobe is the best Laker of all time.. every single one ..I love magic but he didn’t face double teams every play of his career.. Hell I think magic is the greatest laker player ever but I kinda have to listen to all the greats.. I remember Magic Johnson like a superhero…

    ——–

    Magic Johnson also said the other day on the radio that “he just loves the way Kobe has handled himself off the cour his whole career”.

    Ummm…… yeah, so getting accused of rape is handling your business huh?

    Look, I know the rape charges were bogus. Im not trying to argue that crap. But when Magic says stupid chit like that, his credibility takes a hit in my book.

    All the Laker greats can BS whatever they want about Kobe. But we all saw what Kobe was when he wasnt surrounded by a EXTREMELY TALENTED supporting cast.

    Kobe has 5 rings. Kobe didnt play in the Jordan era. And Kobe wouldnt have any rings without Shaq and Pau.

    Magic won rings when he was the best player on his team. Magic was the leader and best player.

    Kobe wasnt the best player during the Shaq days, nor was he the leader. And during the last two titles, he was the best player, but far from the leader. That title went to Derek Fisher.

    There is a lot to be desired in Kobe’s game. Not physically. Not in his will to win or competitive spirit. But between the ears. That said, I know Im splitting extremely fine hairs there and I dont expect it to make sense to the average fan. The stuff Im pointing out with Kobe only a coach would point out.

    Im only critical of Kobe because he was just oh so close to be nearly perfect. Im even harsher on Shaq believe it or not.

    Drafting for ZBS or Power? Very important.

    POWER!
    ——————————
    That’s my preference, but winning is the bottom line.

    DMC, Veld and Wiz all progressed with the Power scheme, ZBS was Knapps idea and he doesn’t even do well with it.

    Yeah, he should move inside to the 3 tech. Shaughnessy can still make a comeback but he’s not an everydown player.

    Len,

    Norv Turner is one of those guys who is an EXCELLENT coordinator, but a terrible Head Coach.

    Romeo Crennel = same thing. hire him as DC if he gets fired by KC!!
    ———————————
    I hear you RR.

    I’d have no problem with both on staff.

    Agree.

    ——

    Yep. RRS is 100% right on both accounts. Its not opinion, he’s stating facts.

  • mcfadden20.

    Houston was a good pick but just stupid decision to start at DE , should hAve cut Kelly or Seymour to free up DT spot

    Anybody see where Goodel is proposing getting rid of kickoffs again.

    Instead of kicking off, its 4th & 15 from your own 30. You have the option to punt or go for it after a TD.

    I hate Goodel almost as much as I hate David Stern.

    Scream player safety one minute but then try to expand the season to 18 games the next while shoving thursday night games down the players throats.

    Houston was drafted 2 replace Seymore after Seymore showed him the ropes to being a pro,he actually was brought in to show the whole d-line but these guys just dont have what it takes.Seymore is an old dog,but 1 ruff,rugged n tuff s.o.b.And as you all see Houston is his pit in training and isnt shy about mixing it up.The rest are just some slouches,slackers and pushovers running in the pack

    Or give the Raiders that 200m toward Cap room and put a better product on the field. That would make the O.co a better experience. Rather than wasting it on new seating that no one ever sits down in

    It’s true, people used to say the game passed Al Davis by but really, the times and people passed Al by, not the game. The idea of lining up and beating the man in front of you is the best way to win football. Press man with natural pressure is the best way to play defense. Running and throwing deep is a good offense. Al’s problem was finding guys to do this, not his philosphies. Players have too much money with too much free time to dedicate themselvs to domination.

    Sadly though, even our players best isnt that much.

    The effort was there against the Browns. They played hard. Theyre just not very good.

    So its really hard to condemn DA based on the outcome. Measuring effort is so subjective.
