Pete knows Wilson can win with the quick passing scheme, but he refuses to stick to it because he wants to be run-first. I'm getting to the point where I'm willing to say that it's simply his pride, and it's hurting the team.


    This is everything, right here. He wants to win his way.

    So we agree :)

Figured we'd lose 4 on the year and the Packers game is likely one of the toughest scenarios we'll be in during the regular season. Hopefully -- and I'm optimistic -- our offensive line generates some cohesiveness and consistency against the Niners to get a head of steam going and we parlay that into what you're looking for and that's a high level of play week in and week out.


    Fair enough. In speaking for me (but I guess for others) the reason for the "panic" is simply because we feel that we have seen the picture before. The relatively good results is keeping the panic at bay but our offense has not clicked for quite some time. It is then frustrating to see the same thing over and over again.

    If they changed things up and it didn't work then I would get it. If RW was rolling out and got hammered then oops tried that bad idea, if we were using short quick passing game and it didn't work -darn (it did work last year at times), if we used some traditional screen passes and it didn't work then ok good try

    Instead we just keep doing the same thing.....

    Optimism for me is different - it means hoping that they change their ways. No matter who "they" are

  • Its not a knee jerk reaction when its being going on for a few years now. Like somebody else said, I didnt even expect to win Sunday, but I expected a lot more from the offense than what I saw. It was a pathetic effort against a just alright defense. Somebody else was correct in saying that beating crummy teams and feeling better about ourselves really isnt fixing the issues. Some want to blame last seasons problems on RW's injuries, but I didnt see much difference in our play Sunday. And to be brutally honest, dare I say, even when Russ ran, he still looked slow to me. I dont put all the blame on Bevell as I think he's a pawn to Pete, but its pretty obvious that Pete's offensive philosophy is stale and doesnt work with our personnel. Thats a huge problem. I'm one of those people that dont like the two and out in the playoffs. Something needs done. Lets face it, the Hawks need HFA in order to go anywhere in the playoffs (sorry but its true). In order to achieve that goal, we cant afford to have a repeat of last season in which we have 4 or so games without a TD and i'm afraid thats where we're headed.

    So we score a bunch of points on a horrible team and people will say - see it is all fixed and ignore that we are losing to elite teams and beating crap

    This is typical of the rotting culture of some of this fanbase -- actually describing a win as a negative attribute.


    You can beat up a ten year old and say you won a fight but would anyone recognize your win as a real accomplishment?

    That wears a little thin when starting poorly has tangible negative impact and a strong finish can't compensate for it.

    Or your All Time Great safety gets broken leg when you're trying to finish strong, that happens.

    I'm tellin you guys, a couple more games that look like yesterday, and it's all anyone is gonna be talking about. The noise will be too much.



    If we have too many more games this year like yesterday, Russ will be hurt and the season will be on life support anyways.

    Pete is loyal to his guys, sometimes even to a fault.


    Wasn't Holmgren's loyalty as he got older one of his greatest weaknesses also? I

    Unless something happens to this team, I do see any different team this year than last as far as playoff
    caliber-80% on the offense of course-

    Our "elite" D will be that much older and injured by the time playoffs come due to carrying a crappy offense again and we get bounced when we can score in the redzone.

  • Yep. Same shit different year, except the offense may have actually gotten worse, I'm not sure.
