your hundreds of posts constantly criticizing and harping on lebeau is just very degrading.
once your constant bitching about the man reaches epic board wide proportions it is no longer criticizing, it is plain hating. You think someone with a 48 IQ would know that.

I have said it before coaches coach, they develop, devise and put forth the game plan, from that point it is up top the players to execute. That being said at the end of the day it is easy to place blame on the coaches rather than the lack luster effort put forth by the players.

I ran my own business for fifteen years.

I developed my employees and I devised and put forth the game plan too.
But if something went wrong, the guy who took the heat was me and I didn't blame anything on a lackluster effort from the guys who worked for me.

Degrading to whom?

LeBeau?
I'm sure his skin is pretty thick in that regard.
(Besides, do you think he actually reads any of this crap?)

And you could say the same things about my hundreds of posts about Haley too -- that is until recently when I had a change of heart because I'm seeing some improvement (so far) in the attitude and execution of the offense.

Things don't look too good and criticism follows.
Things improve and criticism recedes.

That's pretty much how it goes with most things.

No.

Degrading to albert Einstein and sherlock Holmes.

That's fine if you have a bad case of hateritis but lady steel said it best

I guess I'll just have to work on that some more.
As they say in racing, "all the horsepower in the world won't do you any good if you can't connect it to the track." I'll leave it at that.

Which inevitably leads to a rather animated discussion about the tractive value of treads on tires and so on...

But the defense, to me, seems like more of the same thing - the too soft coverage, the predictable schemes and the inability to adapt to changing situations.

Yes I know it's "only pre-season" and it's "only the third game". But as I've said many times and as I'm sure most long-term fans know, there's a "vibe" you get from watching this team and a sort of sixth-sense of knowing when things are going well and when they're not. And that vibe is telling me that the the offense seems to be on the upswing, but the defense is still stagnant.
I'd LOVE to be proven wrong, but so far I don't sense that happening. I'm just getting that, "more of the same" feeling about the defense that I've had for the last few seasons.

We'll see...

I'm getting the same "vibe." I hope we're wrong....time will tell.

Haha...


This thread again?

Ben, bell, brown, miller, Wheaton, and even Justin brown all had great days and DRI archer, lance Moore, DH, or Bryant weren't even showcased.

I'm guessing Haley will either be extended or offered another HC job, long before he is fired.
