Default Re: It's Scheme, not Talent.

talked about this, at great length, on the last podcast....the "schemes" arent fooling anyone.

We're not seeing blitzers coming free...and with respect to the constant 8 yard cushion being given by our CBs

The scheme isn't based around any two players. It may seem like that because they are pretty much the only two players who give full effort in each game.

Didn't Clark recently say the defense is predictable?
Yes, he did, and he stated the obvious: "We're predictable... predictably great, year-in and year-out." And he's right. And please don't give me this "paper defense" non-sense. Numbers can be misleading for a while, but after 16 games you have a pretty accurate picture of how good or bad a defense is. After eight years the picture is crystal clear: Dick Lebeau knows what he's doing.

Our only talent is Woodley and he gets double teamed. Or they have an extra blocker waiting for him to get through to pick him up. Our LB's need to stay back becuase our CORNERS Fing suck, including the great shut don CB Ike Taylor. All this leads to no pass rush again for the 2nd year.

LB's "staying back" opened up the middle of the field.

Any corner can look terrible when he's constantly asked to give receivers 10 yard cushions. We took away the deep ball, but the Raiders were more than happy to go underneath and middle. Just as Denver was.

Wow-- somebody has anger issues, not to mention denials about his age....

"Old foggie" refers to those of us that have been around long enough to know better. 34 is probably older than a majority of the people posting on internet forums, not to mention the guys playing the sport on the field.

I am sorry if your masculinity was challenged by me caling you "old", but so you know where I am coming from-- I turn 35 in November.

So what you are saying...is that you want to rant and rave like a fxxking 5 year old and not listen to anybody else who tries to make things easier for your simple mind to comprehend. I got ya.

Somebody already pointed out to you, that Goodell is not single-handedly changing the rules of the game-- there is a committee that does that. But don't let facts get in the way of your willful ignorance, Twinkie.

Your dog got run over in the street? Goodell's fault.

You went bankrupt? Goodell's fault.

Wife left you? Goodell's fault.

"Brainwashed slaps"? Wow, not only are you totally ignorant, but you are as about as articulate as the average Klingon, and obviously failed the reading comprehension portion of the SAT. You are the pride of Appalachia, for sure....

I quite clearly stated that I am NOT a fan of all the new rules changes. You seem to have a problem discerning the difference between 'stating the facts' and 'agreeing with the facts'.

Again, nowhere in my post did I say anything remotely hinting that I agree with all the new rules changes-- I simply corrected your misconceptions and ignorant assumptions.

I personally could not care too much less if they all get brain damage. Again, I was simply correcting your misconceptions. You want to blame Goodell for everything under the sun, but the fact is that the NFL is trying to make itself less liable in court by looking serious about safety. And the reason they are doing that is because some 3400 lawsuits are currently in the systrem right now, filed by former players who spent all their $$$$ and claim the NFL didn't warn them properly of the health consequences of colliding with each other some 1100 times per season.

Now go smash a beer can on your forehead and eat a good book, Twinkie. I think I have taxed your brain enough for one day.

OK. OK.... Let's bring it down a few notches here. I don't want a perfectly good thread getting derailed by personal attack ping pong.
