Winning cures everything. Guy is no longer the biggest asshole in my life (Rivera). Keep winning for a year or two, and I might actually like the guy
a year or two?
i love ron unabashedly right now.

You know what I like the most? He was still angry after the win. He didn't let a comeback victory gloss over the poor first half and will make sure this team understands it can't act like it did today and expect to win. His expectation is for them to perform to their best and nothing less.

Pretty sure there was a thread about this very subject last week.
But who cares? I'm down to re read stuff
If so, my bad. I was out of town part of last week so I may not have read every thread that was created.
Thanks for keeping everything straight and keeping us posters in our place homie .

His new name should be "Huge Ball Sack" Ron. It doesn't rhyme but that 4th and 10 go for it was huge.

As long as the defensive gambling doesn't leave Captain on an island single covering a WR with two legs, at least 5'10, not in a wheelchair, not visually impaired, I'm good with all of it.
I'm on board the Riverboat.

I agree it was huge and I applaud Ron for it but people are acting shocked, but seriously.. It would have been more shocking to not go for it. 2:30 to go with 1 timeout, that was a no brainer and hearing analysts act shocked he went for it there kind of suprises me. That was clearly 4th down territory there.
Agreed. More amazing than going for it on 4th and 10 was that we picked it up, and Smitty held on while being sammiched between two Dolphins.

Everyone has talked about Riverboat Ron and his newfound willingness to go for it in fourth down situations. But that is only part of the story.
Time after time, we would get in these situations and we would run very basic coverage, just keep everything in front of you, just rush 3 or 4, drop 7 or 8, get really deep, etc. But in these late game situations during this win streak, he has also gambled much more often on defense late in games, and it has paid off big time.
No longer, late in games in crucial defensive positions are we just sitting back and hoping they make a mistake.
I think the change has also played as much of a part in our winning streak and ability to win close games as has his willingness to go for it on fourth down.
