    Default The timing of Nix's comments...

    ......are eyebrow raising.

    Is this OBD attempt @ being proactive with their marketing? They realize this team will once again be on the outside of the playoff glass lookin' in, so is this their attempt @ trying to keep the ticket buyers engaged?

    Or is Nix feeling the pressure? Are grumblings FINALLY spiraling down from the top that the patience with our current QB situation has reached it's threshold? Is he trying to sell himself to our next potential owner?

    I mean....WE know we need another QB, this isn't exactly rocket science...but during the midway point of the season, I don't see other teams discussing their draft needs in the fashion that we suddenly have.

    So....where's the pressure coming from?

    I would hope it's coming from RW but I have my doubts that it is. More likely it's coming from Brandon worrying about how he will sell tix next year.

    as badly managed as this team has been, they seem to know when to do something to excite the fanbase -- even if it's just for half a year: Bledsoe, McGahee pick, Owens, Williams...

    they can sense when fans are reaching a bad, bad place and then they say or do something to hoodwink us again for a while.

    you have to admit, they've marketed turd like it was gold and we've bought it.

    Drafting a QB is their marketing plan this year.

    Every year they do one main thing to get the fans excited again. This year it will be drafting a QB.

    Hmm and I always thought it was "smokin' mirrors". I guess I was wrong. That's mind bottling....

    There is nothing calculated and smart about Nix's statement. It's just random bumpkin logic like everything else he does. Yeehaww.

    Honestly, that's what I've seen for the past few years since Nix/Gailey has come in. I'm shocked that more people haven't come to recognize this.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah Buddy. Back it up and pick the right guy. Concentrate now on telling chan to start winning (Sunday is the exception) or the pink slip will be delivered by UPS.

    It's like they plan on being bad. Pay Fitz mid season, tell Fitz his replacement is coming soon almost same time next mid season.

    I think the fan base smells a rat over there, we aren't buying the puke over there anymore, its too bad the fan base has awoken to see their crap after all their years of promising.

    TBH while I DO think he is 100% serious about this, i think he is attempting to call out fitz right before a game in which they will need him at his best. Basically this is all he can do about the QB at this point. Fitz plays better with a chip on his shoulder. Why not go out and put one there right before what is probably the most important game of the season? Win this game and at 4-5 and 1-1 split with the patriots the playoffs remain a possibility, especially going into the easier portion of the schedule with some confidence. Lose this game you are 3-6 and 0-3 in the division going into another division game with zero confidence on a 3 game losing streak. Even if thisteam squeeks into the playoffs and loses in the first round it shows that buddy is dragging this team in theright direction. If fitz goes belly up then it still gets buddy some fan approval and possibly saves his job with the knowlege that he is going to attempt to get a qb in tbe draft. That being said, if he doesnt i could see him getting fired the day after the draft.
