  1. A hot take from the Patriots message board

    If he thinks our offense is simple that is his first mistake. The only thing simplistic appears to be understanding of our scheme and our players. The problem for example in using man coverage on us is our running game which is described as the most complex in the NFL. And the list goes on. Seems their fans really don't know much besides their own team.
  2. Along the Sidelines - The book

    I like the idea of a pictorial book depending of course on the price. I suspect it will cost quite a bit. I bet an online version you download would be easier and much cheaper. The coffee table ones are great to have and gives you something tangible. They just seem to cost a lot for a good one. And I doubt you would settle for anything that wasn't good. 
  3. Old School Football

    I have always wanted us to have a Jim Johnson blitz happy aggressive defense. Truth is that McDermott and Rivera may have put together an ever better defense. We still blitz but we seem to be more selective and don't give up the big plays that Johnson's defenses often did.  
  4. Watching first take (skip Bayless)

    I think it is funny to watch our critics have to talk in circles to justify their past positions. Adam Schein, Skip Bayless and most of the talking heads are eating crow. On the other hand guys like Gil Brandt are looking pretty smart. There is a reason he is one of the talking heads I actually give credence to.
  5. We are not "legit"

    Respect is earned not given. After going 7-8-1 last year in a crappy division it is understandable that we are not thought of as that great. Add that our receivers and Oline were bad and it is understandable that we have to prove ourselves. I have no problem we are being called the worst 11-0 team in history. Maybe they will call us the worst 19-0 team ever although we will have been the only one to ever go 19-0.
  6. J.Jones.... Karma is a bitch

    Hardy was good as a player for us and was disruptive in the game for them.Romo had a very good game last week so yeah u can't say he shouldn't have been out there at least in the first half. You could argue he should have gotten pulled in the third before the injury but that is hindsight.  Before the game everyone was happy Romo was playing and thought Hardy would be a beast. Funny how things change after the fact. This is just Dallas fans bitching and coming down to earth. Probably not much different from the comments that would be made on the huddle if we were in the same situation.  Sad but true. 
  7. Bandwagon fans are really irrelevant. They are here now and gone as soon as they discover the next best thing. That is why they are bandwagon fans to begin with. Not at all like fans who have been here for the duration so really who cares.
  8. The greg hardy vs michael oher matchup

    When this thread about their battle with each other was first posted in August the consensus was we were in big trouble. Now it seems that Oher might hold his own for the most part.  I surely hope so. I don't want Hardy to get more press than he gets already.
  9. Wes Horton Suspended 4 Games for PEDs

    Exactly.  It isnt usually star players with tremendous athletic potential like Cam or Luke using PEDS given they are already immensely talented, it is the marginal guys who are fighting for a roster spot and figure they need all the help they can get. 
  10. Wes Horton Suspended 4 Games for PEDs

    Too bad that he felt the need to use PEDs to make the roster.  There is so much money to be made in football that it seems easy to lose sight of what is important to pursue your dream of playing in the NFL.  
  11. Panthers have two opponents this week.

    On the one hand I have witnessed bias toward or against one team too often to say it is random or not present.  On the other hand I dont think things are rigged or show any corruption.  With the other issues the NFL has to face, rigging games would totally undercut the league as a whole.  It would be suicidal for them to tamper with their product which is already the best of all sports.
  12. I agree that CJ is fresh and rested and ready to step back into the rotation. While he might not get as many sacks as he has in the past, his greatness is against the run. He is a big strong DE who gets great leverage and knows how to use it.  Whatever he brings we will need for the stretch run before the playoffs. 
  13. Defense won this game for us

    Was listening to Eugene Robinson and he mentioned that people will credit the defense for the win but the offense kept us in the first half when special teams and the defense made mistakes. If we had gotten behind by 14 points it would have been a whole different game. Just like when their pick 6 got taken away. Sure the defense was great but our offense kept scoring points and forced them to be onedimensional which played into our hands. 
  14. The Panthers for the second half of the season

    That would be true. Cam is just understanding  the offense well enough to do what people say makes a QB elite. He is making players around him better. Ginn might suck elsewhere but here he a weapon for example.  
  15. Oh USAToday...

    I love articles like this. Imagine how pissed he will be when we become the worse 10-0/ever. The more they deride us the more I laugh when we prove them wrong again. Most folks love us or hate us. I love us. Screw the haters as we beat our opposition into the ground. Doing the dab in their face.
