I don't think OP necessarily meant beating the living daylights out of teams on the scoreboard. More like after your team plays us; you're players are gonna need a little longer than usual to recover. Talking tough, hard nosed, hit you in the mouth football. Think there was even a thread started about this after the HOU game I think it was?
Dang.....that looks so terrible when you see all those names on paper. Fortunate that our schedule was fairly soft to begin the year. I'm fine with Luke sitting again, don't get me wrong, I'm tired of him not being out there, but we need him for the 4 game stretch post bye week.
Cliche or not, any given Sunday....or Monday....or Thursday now as well, any team can beat any other team. It's the NFL. I personally don't believe in "trap" games. These dudes get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to play football. To do a job. They are grown men, this isn't a DI vs. DIII college game when 1 team really should expect to win. They shouldn't be taking any game lightly, regardless of the opposing teams record or reputation. (and for the record I don't think they do, it's only fans that get overly optimistic or overly pessimistic). I firmly believe our coaching staff has our guys minds in the right place. Trying to "cut down" on reactionary threads and whining....I don't ever see that happening here.
You're probably right about the MA deal, but at any rate, a NFL 4-3 DE should ideally weight more than 255 pounds With that being said, I don't give a fug what he weighs as long as he can get pressure on the opposing QB.
The only ones taking this game lightly are probably PU and some other huddlers on here. I seriously doubt the players or anyone on the coaching staff is taking anything lightly. We've got way too many good character guys on our squad for ish like that to be happening.
