Nah, his free kick is unbelievable.

What!!! Its a free kick! Ive seen Beckham and Ronaldhino score better free kicks. He chase's that ball down and kicks it as its going out of bounds. That goal is insane.

Yeah, for my money, that's the greatest goal of all time as far as skill. Most important? Maybe Beckham's 93rd minute goal against Greece for the 2002 WC qualifier.

Greatest Soccer moment of my life, I ran around and outside my house three times.

This is right after Lescott tied it up.

To try and make it bigger than it is-is just ignorant.

soccer=blows

you mean like some people do for Halloween? So because you don't like it means it sucks?

Let me throw this out there...and I am sure this will be something many will just love to hear....

one big reason why soccer is not as accepted in the USA is that there are many many nations in the world that are far superior at the game. In my opinion, Americans generally want to be the best at anything and everything, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing, but when they can't be, well then it sucks, or it blows, or whatever else you wanna say about it. Same reason why there is a general lack of passion about most sports in Canada, other than hockey.

Thoughts?

Elite american athletes would get good at soccer real quick if there was big money in it like there is in NFL, NBA and MLB...

And I'm sure that there is big money in Europe in Soccer, but it's not as visible here as the other sports...

I dare say the elite soccer players are paid equally or maybe more than the elite football/baseball players...but thats just a guess.

    • Shula let cam be the offence, put him in places to make the plays
    • I think the problem is that what folks think are easy adjustments to make in game really aren't. For example if Cam is getting pummeled on 5 step drops going to screen passes isn't going to magically change anything. And going to quick timing passes sounds good if you are running a WCO but are not what a Coryell vertical system is built on. If it is a simple adjustment you can pretty much figure the coach who develops a good pregame plan would also actually have planned certain adjustments if the defense changes up based on the likelihood that they have seen other teams make similar adjustments. This is a copy cat league.  The issue is actually more complex and is usually more about constant adjustments from play to play, teams disguising what they do, and players winning individual matchups as they progress through the game. A DE setting up one move for 3 plays by doing something else and then on 3rd down go to that move. Playcalling gets too much credit or blame while execution and physical talent are actually much more important and are often overlooked or minimized.
    • The offensive coached have been working since the end of last season to revamp this offense.  They worked to learn about other systems they could apply and that along with the new toys (and an upgraded Oline) think we will be please with the results. There is also a new consultant in the mix. Willingness to learn and change are very good traits in an NFL coach.  I too think the Shula bashing should stop.  Let's wait and see the results.
