In Topic: Running Backs - Handled Negatively

27 October 2014 - 12:57 PM

I understand Mack's worth to final numbers, but this Topic was about how "negatively" we've handled these guys ... when it was so easy to manage/coach them positively.

 

I coached (baseball) for many years and there is an art to keeping your players "up" and have them playing confidently. It's not an easy task, but the way this coaching staff has approached this position is mind boggling. 

 

I understand that Tate was the featured back and had the starting job un-questionably secured heading into the season, and I understand Mack's worth, not just to the continuity of the line and blocking schemes, but to his teammates and locker room ... but how a coaching staff handles situations when those two guys go down injured says a lot and so far it's not been handled very well and it started to go South even before Tate's return and well before Mack's injury.

 

Don't get me started feeding a feud in the press between Hoyer & Manziel and their long-term contracts or not. Complete assine to have that paraded out during the seasons high-peak to date. Professionals? ha!

Very good to see so many "old timers" respond to this thread. Great to still have a connection to all even though under such sad circumstances. I don't have the fire in my belly to post here much anymore, even though I still foot the bill, but seeing everyone chime-in on Kathy's passing sure is nice to see.

I'm sorry to report that our friend, Kathy Hutchins has lost the battle with brain cancer.

 

There is no question that yesterdays miracle comeback win by our beloved Browns was for Kathy (aka: KSHutchins) and at Kathy's doing. RIP Kathy, you will be greatly missed.

I hope you are joking. Hoyer has been solid and isnt turning the ball over. He is definitely not the reason we are losing games. You can hang that squarely on the D and special teams. 


Yeah, I was simply joking about Hoyer, but I did try to keep everyone grounded this week and focus on the fact that we still have a long, long way to go. Maybe we can put down the Pom-poms this week and discuss football.
