What do you want to see in the final 4 weeks?
« on: December 04, 2018, 10:46:14 AM »
Considering that we're all but mathematically out of the playoffs, what do you want to see in the last 4 weeks of the season?

Remaining schedule:

vs. Atlanta
@ Chicago
@ New York (Jets)
vs. Detroit

1.) I want to see some pride. I want these guys to compete and take their frustrations out on their opponent. Tanking is a losing mentality.
2.) I want Philbin to open the offense up more for Aaron Jones and the young receivers.
3.) I want to see more short passing plays, slants, etc. Rodgers needs to get into a rhythm right from the start.
4.) I really want to see more of Kumerow with Rodgers.
5.) No more "coaching scared" or "give up plays". Let it all hang out.

Some of you may say "it doesn't matter" but I firmly believe "tanking" or even the perception that a team is doing so is a dangerous, dangerous mindset moving forward.

Well, since Philbin has 4 games to "audition" for the HC job, my guess is you see his best foot forward.

Will the team respond? That's the $64 question. But, I hope so.

I'd like to see Cobb sit (he's not here next year), and play Kumerow from the slot

I'd like to see more of Robert Tonyan at TE. Give this kid more reps to see if you need to draft a TE high, low, or at all in 2019.

If an injury occurs to anyone, IR that person and bring up Kendall Donnerson to play OLB. Get him some game reps and ST's reps.

Up tempo game plans on offense. MVS had a couple good plays on end-arounds. Throw in some jet sweeps. Put players in motion. Stack WR's to one side. Show us some creativity, because with a 600 page offensive playbook there's got to be a lot more to use than what we've seen for the last 2-3-4 years.

Show us some 4-3 looks on defense.

Zook canned and the audition of a new ST coach the next 4 games.  I'd hire Iowa's Levar Woods before someone else gets him. Likely not realistic but sorely needed.
Agree, sort out the TE to see if we need to look at a high pick for Fant.
Some "real" screen and draw plays with Jones.
Better 3rd down plays/execution.
Better use of time outs, whether that means not running the clock down so tight or better use of challenges.
See more of Campbell, liked him coming out in the draft and think he's a player.

If Philbin is not the guy, 0-4
If Philbin is the guy, 4-0 with an outstanding running game and breakout performances by all the young WRs, MVS ESB JK RT, with Turnovers on defense.

As a bonus, a new Special Teams coach (unlikely)

Tonyan get some snaps at TE.
Burks, Looney, Donnerson, Adams, Lancaster showing some hope. 
Rodgers has been so very inaccurate; I'd like to see some accurate throws. 
Spriggs looking less bad. 
St. Brown, MVS, and Moore showing more quickness and professionalism and play-making excitement.

Some fight, a road win

Someone stepping up in the secondary and becoming a playmaker. The team has 6 interceptions on the season. 3 were by Clinton-Dix.
