Re: We've Been Spotted

I can and will give our D credit to the D for pulling our O out of the first and second game, and playing well in the third. I think if they keep playing the way they have we will be very fortunate to have hired Ryan but I also feel we have a long way to go and until our O gets back on track (meaning being consistent) that Ryan's D is going to have to play lights out each and every game. Sooner or later some offensive guru will figure out a blue print to his D and teams will game plan from that but until then I have liked what he had done. Although we have a few weaknesses on D I think they have shown enough to keep us in a game and hold down the fort, I'm buying in. It's a hell of a better D than what we had last year thanks to Ryan and it's young.

Re: We've Been Spotted

I will say it: The Miami Dolphins are not capable of beating the New Orleans Saints without the Saints helping them. If the Saints play like they did against the bird droppings and the yucs, then there is a decent chance the Saints will no longer be counted in the ranks of the unbeaten.

IMO, the only teams that will give the Saints a problem are the 40-whiners and the seachickens.

Re: We've Been Spotted

I had saw AFC Playbook today and posted something not seeing this thread.

I like that the D is getting credit, but it seems like we're starting to get picked by the sports media "experts" more and more.

I'd rather most of them would keep themselves and their BO off the bandwagon.

Then comes in a cardinal team with their best player Larry Fitzgerald nursing a hamstring and a sitting duck in C. Palmer with no running game and a pretty awful defense we should have blown them out which we did. Now we will be getting into some teams that a pretty good lets just wait and see just how good we think we are after the next 3 games. I think the team is definitely better than last year but I wanna see them play against somebody before I get overly excited. ok now let the ripping commence.
I see your point about the Falcons game, but take into account how many projected starters we lost before the game was even played, plus the players we lost during the game and still won. That either speaks volumes about what kind of team the Falcons actually are, or it says even more about our depth and players that actually can play in this system. On paper, they should have blown us out.

Well, you have done a poor job of not wanting to sound like a pessimist. What you should have said was 'I don't want to sound like the pessimistic fan so here goes... WAHOO!! WE'RE 3-0. TAKE THAT ALL YOU OTHER FANS HAHAHAHA!!! OUR DEFENSE IS MUCH BETTER SO BE SCARED'
Now, doesn't that sound more like someone who doesn't want to be a pessimistic fan? Here endeth the lesson.

Totally missed the point but I expected to get ripped by people that don't understand football and what the difference between winning against a good team or winning against some team that will be a door mat team.

Take the Houston Texans from last year for example and their 12-4 record they played no one last year when it was time to play a quality team the lost didn't they

I'm just sayin let me see what we do against some of these teams that are worth a dam before we go start getting to excited

Didn't miss the point at all and do agree with you to an extent. I was just teasing you but if you're going to get all defensive and use the 'you don't understand football' card, I will know not to try and be light-hearted with you in the future.

Re: We've Been Spotted

I wasn't really being defensive but I guess I can see how it could be consider that way. I expect to be ripped for what I said. I don't think what you said was a ripping either.i am happy we are 3-0 but im just cautious in my excitement. so we are all good. Take a brewsky out of petty cash next time your at the pub on me

I like what I've seen so far, yes let's give them credit. But let's not start blowing sugar up our ass yet, it's only week three.

I do not drink alcohol (don't like the taste) but I will gladly have a cup of tea while watching the game tomorrow night. Thankfully, it is on tv over here.
