So I don't post often but Jesus Christ. How many people do I have to see run for a TD on a kick off or punt return. He should have been told to pack up his desk after the second special teams td today. Please tell me I'm not alone.

To add to this if we loose I put the majority of the blame on him and our ST's

Yeah, we look lost in every aspect. Our schemes just look like they are way behind the curve of the NFL. I'm not happy with any of our coaches this year.

The more and more I watch I agree with your sentiment.

He is so bad that CBSSPORTS had the score 26-13 with another KR TD even though it didnt happen.

You know you are bad when they just figure you will give up TDS

It's pretty bad when I would rather have Stan Kwan back.

We need to fire Crossman and we need to cut Logan. He is a waste of a roster spot. Also Jonte Green needs to get cut. He is bad on special teams and he is horrible at CB. Another waste of a roster spot.

Obviously we want someone to take the fall for this, but I honestly dont think hes the problem. Our approach is fine, which is all you can ask of him. We just have scrubs running down trying to make tackles.

I think you have to fire the coach. Maybe Danny Crossman would be a good fit somewhere else but our coverage teams are falling apart. It seems like they are afraid to really hit people. Someone said we should get rid if Jonte Green. It was the guy next to him that pinched in to early that created the lane. He mostly held his lane without pinching and has a huge mismatch just like last week. He may not be perfect but he is holding his lane. He looks bad because the players around him pinch too early and lose containment.

I agree.. Crossman can't control these guys missing easy tackles when they are in place to stop them. Obviously it's easier to blame the coordinator so he'll probably get the axe.

My dad and I were at the game today and he looked at me and asked what Stan Kwan was up to and suggested that we give him a call. It's sad.

This is clearly an organizational fail IMO.

It was telling to me when Schwartz was complaining about the talent he had at his disposal during the pre-season. That was basically him crying out for help at a point when our roster was beyond helping.

Mayhew fielded this talent, Mayhew hired Crossman. Mayhew is clearly to blame for our deficit of talent on ST's, and later in the season when our secondary begins getting torched at a record rate, you can pin that on him as well.

I'd fire Crossman though honestly I don't think it matters who is coaching ST's, the talent obviously isn't there.

does not look like Crossman is going anywhere. It will officially be a long year.

When Swartz was asked if Crossman will be fired:

"No. That's not a consideration," Schwartz said. "If we're getting out-schemed, if we were making continual mistakes; there's physical plays we have to make, and we're professional athletes, and we have to make them."
