    reporter: How do you look at your ugly performance last game (Chiefs), because it seemed like more than any game this season you just missed some passes?

    gus: Yeah I missed some throws last game. And um, you know, you just miss some sometimes.


    miss some sometimes? :shakeno:

    wow, you'd think he'd be smart enough to come back with a generic 'we need to clean that up. We'll get that fixed'

    Believe it or not, Marino has missed some passes in his career too.

    Saban made a big mistake to think that Gus could go the whole year as the starter.

    Sounds like he told the truth. What's the problem? We know he's going to miss more passes than 20 other QBs in the league. So why shouldn't he admit it?

    Yeah the guy makes stupid a** statements like that. I remember his quote after throwing that pick in the endzone in the Bills game when he was staring Booker down. He said, "You take shots sometimes, and sometimes they don't go well." What a blouse.

    What is wrong with that? If you know the reason some of the throws that looked to be over thrown or under thrown were not your fault I see nothing wrong with that type of response.

    All I know is Gus is the preson who knows this offense the BEST and if a throw looks to be totally blown he is not the 1st person I would think of blaming.

    yeah but I would start questioning my Qb after if there were alot. Instead of just here and there. Just because he knows the system the best does not necessarily make him the best.

    marino constantly went after receivers that did not go where they were supposed to. And he also admitted fault when he screwed up on a throw.

    I'm sure Saban has but when you have what is supposed to be an ELITE WR on your team in CC QB will never be where the blame game will start or should ever start.

    I look back at Fiedler and his years with some of his receivers. The one that really sticks in my mind is Oronde. Oronde saved Jays butt many times. With many of his catches. if you ever get a chance . Look at Cards of wide receivers during Jays years and look at where the ball is. Especially Orondes . I would say 90 percent of Orondes cards are of him really reaching to get a ball. Now if that isnn't something that will get a receiver killed I don't know what will. And oronde wasn't even an elite WR. but he was good at catching balls that were high.

    Now this might not be the same kind of thing with gus but I would still be watching him real close.

    so of course, we should blame CC when gus misses booker or mcmichael or brown or welker or really anybody... yeah, that makes some sense.

    Exactly. The problem isn't just one WR. Its beyond that. Its the WRs/TEs/RBs that have all had to make diving catches/attempts to catch the ball. We'd have to assume that Gus is accurate and everyone around him is not running the correct route. That doesn't add up, especially, when Gus has a history of accuracy problems.

    cc doesn't have anything to do with passes not intended for him. i'm sorry your disappointment that he hasn't become the next (insert-elite-name-here) is clouding your ability to see clearly.

    ronnie's diving third down reception in week one was cc's fault. if chambers were an elite WR, brown would have caught the ball in stride and taken it to the house.

    this is fun!

    he doesn't deserve all the blame, but he is having problems with his game, that's clear. the o-line isn't helping a lot, and the receivers have made their share of mistakes, but there have been a lot of plays left on the field thanks to throws that just aren't getting there. saban must believe that sage can't do it any better. we'll have to wait and see.

    sports aren't played in a vacuum. there are probably 4 or 5 things that go wrong on every play for every team.

    a WR isnt always going to be in the planned spot at the planned time, but if he's open and the Qb gets the ball out cleanly, he has to make the pass.

    there aren't tons of plays the fins run that are dependant on perfect timing. if its a double move or a go route, the qb has to get the ball to the wr. or if the WR is open in the end zone, you dont one-hop it

    Clue: when a ball hits the ground 5' in front of a receiver, open in the end zone, IT isn't the receivers fault.
    When a receiver is wide open running down the sideline and Gus throws it 5' over his head. It isn't the receivers fault.

    what did you want him to say?

    "i didnt miss any, your just blind"...

    sometimes the QB does miss the reciever. that doesnt make him an idiot.

    Even in the games we won, half his completions were spectacular catches of errant throws. I mean wasn't his only TD in preseason caught by a guy who wasn't the guy he was throwing to?

    Yeah, he just misses sometimes.

    And some QBs miss more than others.

    We know Gus stinks, everyone knows the guy stinks ok.....do we need to look for every little thing to try and demean the guy. Give the man a break, he is trying to win football games.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Gus was never here with Wanny was he ??? That sounds like a classic Wanny, except he forgot to say from "his standpoint"....

    The operative word here is 'sometimes'...The qb misses sometimes, but not nearly as much as he has been. Besides this offense is predicated on him hitting those long balls more often and throwing the ball sot hat the recievers can get YACs, which he is not doing at all...no, he's not an idiot..just a subpar QB...

    What is it that you would have the guy say? He missed some passes. He has NEVER been a great QB. He's a stronger-armed version of Jay Fiedler with less mobility, and less interception prone. That's about all he has ever been, nothing more.

    But just what is it you would have the guy say in response to that question?

    That is a great comment! Do you even know football? What great WR in the game today does not have a better than average if not great QB? Name one! Please I need to hear this, because I am sick of the CC bashing.

    Who?

    Randy moss = Kerry collins

    Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitz = well someone

    Torry holt = Bulger

    Joe horn = Brooks

    Steve Smith = Delhomme

    To me thats all avg QB's

    but youll say that they all are above avg of the group I would take maybe Brooks

    So what’s wrong with this quote? It’s the truth – sometimes you hit, sometimes you miss. And it’s not entirely his fault – I’ve noticed all of the receivers, to include McMichael, dropping big passes this year.



    After a 4-12 season, did you guys expect a miracle?



    And to his credit, at least Gus can move around the pocket and dodge defenders …let’s see Marino do that.



    And one more thing – get over Marino. He’s retired. It’s time to look forward, not back.

    are you suggesting that marino couldn't do that? he certainly couldn't do that NOW, but moving around in the pocket was one of the strengths of his game. he just couldn't leave the pocket.

    True, sometimes you miss, but an nfl caliber QB should not miss on screen passes, and wide open recievers in the endzone. I think that was the point. I think everyone is also aware Dan is retired.

    All of those QBs are decent, much much better than who CC has had to catch balls from! Anybody who says they would take any of our QBs during CC's career over any of the above is NUTS!! :shakeno:

    i wonder does gus think that the wrs are screwing up the routes and the o line isnt giving him 8 seconds to throw and that's why his throws are off. seems like what saban is echoing.
