    Manuel is struggling???

    I thought he has been showing our players how not to play this whole time..... :shock:

    But yeah, to say Manuel is struggling is an understatement..... He has been a HUUUUGGGGGEEEEEEE bust.

    I don't think Schottenheimer is the best judge of talent.

    Manuel sucks and that's all there is to it.

    An Astute observation!!

    The author must have watched a Packer game this season.

    What about the miscommunication? Manuel according to Schottenheimer is the best communnicator.

    I note with concern that little was said about solutions, changes, or progress.

    MM seems to have chosen his words very carefully when talking about Manuel. Even acknowledging him as a very 'knowledgeable player' and 'the best communicator'. Ironic choice of qualities to list when miscommunication is cited as the biggest problem with the secondary. But on the other hand its also the same choice of qualities that TT cited for signing him in the first place.

    As I said in another thread, it would seem that Manuel is being judged by other parameters than blown coverage and being out of position.

    Is it just me or does he repeat himself alot? If he says it enough, maybe everyone else will start to believe it? Maybe he was still talking during those long plays. Being the "communicator" does not mean the one who talks the most -- Great communicators get the point across concisely and then move on.

    What professional player does not look at the fact that he is constantly getting burned until the end of the season? What happened to watching film and making adjustments? Is he 1) so arrogant that he does not believe that the mistakes are his; 2) too stupid to know that he is looking really bad; or 3) just so over his head that he does not know how a professional is supposed to play?

    "The Seahawks were interested in bringing Manuel back, but couldn't guarantee him a starting spot, and they had other priorities when free agency began."

    Hawks Notebook

    Did everyone know that? Given that his exit in the superbowl really hurt Seattle, not only would you think they'd want him back but would have him starting as well. But obviously we're not the only ones who have issues with him.

    The title of this thread is an understatement lol. But I think Shottenheimer deserves some blame too. The thing I'm most dissappoited in is MM cant fix the problem. He acts like he gets tired of anwering questions about blown coverage every week. Well, were tired of seeing recievers so wide open they can stand in one spot for 10 seconds, waving their arms before they catch it. Fix the problem already.

    well MM "IS" an offensive minded coach. Yes, he "IS" a HEAD COACH now, but he is a rookie, and he is leaning heavily on his defensive coaches, and mostly its not bad, except the secondary coaches of death.

    True. The frustrating thing is, that the rest of the D has been pretty good. Especially the pass rush.
