I trust Spags. He knows what he's doing.

Mediocrity is not acceptable. Even for a moment.

This loss is unforgivable. NFC loss, to boot...

On the bright side, Bayer: AG (Bayer Aspirin) trades in the non-cyclical pharmaceuticals.

It's a BUY.

Re: Trust in Spags?

Spags became a very good D-coordinator and earned a head coaching job off this. It will come eventually but I doubt it will be this year.

He took what I consider to be a pedestrian secondary and linebacker corp in NY and put them behind the best D-line in the league and made a top defense. We simply do not have the ability to pressure the pocket with our base personnel like NY did. Even in St Louis he had a better lineman in Chris Long than any of our guys. Will Smith is a good veteran player. Cam Jordan is a good young kid who plays the run and the pass decently. Bunkley and Ellis are underachievers who flash talent one second and glaring errors the next. We have 4 former first rounders who don't even get mentioned in top lineman conversations, and in NY he had guys who were known as some of the best there is. Huge difference. And it will take a year or two for this to round out or change personnel to fit this.

We are going to go through some tough growing pains but I have little doubt he can turn our defense into a better unit than we have been in a while.
