Rosenthal and Florio take on three hot topics

For the Wednesday edition of PFT Daily, Rosenthal has been making a guest appearance from the studios in Stamford, Connecticut (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap). 

We go through a trio of issues, and this week we talked about the Redskins-Eagles game, the Bengals offensive struggles, and the various challenges facing the Chargers.

And I didn’t have to wear a Jets jersey this week.  Or, given that the camera shows only the chest and up, pants.

    Yup… San Diego is a mess on all three sides of the football.
    #1 offense, #4 defense, #32 in special teams. PR #1 in passing yards. Running game is top 10 and a full yard more than when LT was here.
    You can knock the ST all day, but offense and defense?
    Why bother doing these TV specials if they’re going to be inaccurate? It just makes you look irresponsible and ignorant.

    Sure am glad the Bills didn’t get Shanahan. I’m not saying anything about Chan Gailey, but I knew that Shanahan was not capable of turning a team around. Finally, you guys agree with me.

    At first I thought it said ” Rosenthal and Florio take on Three hot Chicks” and wanted to read about their fumbling prematurity….but then I woke up and read again….they could never score 3 hot chicks…

    First let me say I cant watch the video because im at work so I dont know the arguments made by florio and rosenthal but the defense is #4 becuase they are never on the field because the ST is that bad. How do you expect teams to rack up tons of offensive yards and points when the offense doesnt have to take the field field because their ST scores?

    Shanarat is learning you don’t hold grudges against player(s) if you don’t have the support of the other guys. the players run the show there and you don’t just walk in and do what Shanarat did without first cleaning out the cancers. did you hear what DeAngelo Hall said recently? he said it’s his defense, he doesn’t care what the coach says, etc, etc. if you want to improve that team, get rid of Hall and Haynesworth yesterday. then find anyone who sympathizes with them and dump them too.

    looks like a small carson palmer statue behind florio..Looks like florio really likes Carson

    Florio’s Shanahan grudge comes out again. He literally can not evaluate the coach fairly.

    With respect to your comments on the Bengals and more specifically Carson Palmer, it is not some mysterious ailment that is plaguing him, or some diminishment of his arm strength. It is quite simply an offensive line issue. Whether it be the ‘stupid’ penalties, talent level and or overall inconsistencies, the offensive line is not holding up long enough to provide Carson and Ced Ben with some room to gain a rhythm. Football is about momentum and rhythm, especially on offense.
    With that being said, the line should improve as time goes on. Paul Alexander is a great coach, and knows what needs to get done. We will most likely be 5-2 and 2-0 in the AFCN by the time the Steelers come to town on Monday night and that is plenty of time to get things ‘in order’. I believe the Bengals have some surprise still left in them.
    11/8
    Mark it.

    not even a full season has gone by yet and u make this stupid assumption
    PFT is getting ridiculous

    Palmer = USC bust……again

  12. SuperNatti says: Sep 29, 2010 7:10 PM

    Carson’s fine.
    The O-line was a combination of under-prepared and ‘not quite there’.
    Ps- the weather wasn’t exactly great in Charlotte, either.
    I second Goetta-Head and high-five Airperuvian (Florio’s clearly sporting a Carson idol)
    Oh, yeah… Hey, Rosenthal! How many ‘th’s are in the word Thithy?

  13. Blackn'Gold says: Sep 29, 2010 9:05 PM

    Three games into the season these two are writing epitaphs? Rosenthal sounds whinny.
    The Redskins switch to a three four defense is not easy. It will take time to be good at it. Everyone is talking about Micheal Vick because he’s playing tremendous football. He’s becoming the complete quarterback we all hoped for. I don’t see the Redskins beating them.
    Carson needs more practice with the receivers. T.O. can catch underneath routes if arm strength is an issue. The Bengals should be running the ball until Carson and the receivers start producing. Carson used to terrify defenses because his passes were so accurate regardless of depth. Practice, practice, practice.
    Personally, I don’t care about San Diego. When the team goes 14 & 2 and then fires the coach, it’s unforgivable.

    KCFAN, you took the words right out of my mouth.

    1-2

    Lord of No Rings strikes again!

    He has been to 2 probowls and has 10 Bengals records. How is he a bust?
    David Carr, now that is a bust.
    Salma Hayek, now THAT is a bust.

    Do you even watch games?
    The Chargers ARE THE ONLY TEAM IN THE NFL that has an offense AND defense BOTH in the top 5.
    YES the Bolts ST are horrid
    YES they should be blasted for that
    YES it may cost them more games
    YES if it is not fixed then they will be 8-8
    But get a clue, Rivers is playing out of his mind. He had 455 yards passing last week and the Bolts defense held the Seachickens to something under 50 yards in the second half.
    ST and fumbles killed them and they deserved to lose, but if they correct ST, they might reel off the next 10 in a row.

    Really? Your defense about us being ranked #4 on D is because in three games we gave 3 TDs… so you’re saying an average on ONE SERIES A GAME is the reason our D is stopping people???
    ROFLMAO at that lame excuse.
    Enjoy 3-0. 2010 Chiefs = 2009 Broncos. EPIC FAIL down the stretch.
