I prefer to take this for what it is. A man taking responsibility on his own
person and equals, for the sinking of his captain.

Im as disappointed as Ive ever been rooting for this team.
I've cussed, thrown things, moped around, and got pissed at the world.
Honestly, it would have been real easy to get into a fight with me sunday night.

But every one of these guys has a mom.

Im impressed with Rafael, the person.

Im sure I'll be back in mental face paint, thumping my chest, and in full fanatic mode for the Texans game.

for now, im just taking a moment.

who dat?
I certainly don't have a problem with Rafael taking responsibility. That's great. It just doesn't change the point, in my mind. Rob confuses his own players. When you have a young defense, maybe put a little less on their plate?

The way they played Sunday was bad on everyone. You can't be on your heels the entire game, and playing touch football. Unfortunately you can't fire the entire defense. Not in season. So you start up top.

There are enough players who won't be here next year. Browner better be among them (I know, broken record). Putting him out there in man coverage was another indictment on the staff.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

GW did more with less talent because he was not a push over. I remember reading about him dragging Tez of the field by his face mask during either practice or trading camp,chewing his azz and embarrassing him because of a missed assignment and made him sit until the end of practice. That's what we need...maybe not as extreme,but someone who will kick these boys in the azz.No more push over coaches. Ever notice how our offense performs consistently good year after year. Sean ain't no f**kin push over.Not to say we don't have our bad games,but the numbers speak for themselves.

But then again, one of the NFL's greatest defensive coaches was Bum
Phillips. His son Wade is also known as a player's coach. Guys will run
through walls for him.

I think the term a players coach has two sides to it...

1. He is a players coach that gives them ice cream, takes them to Disneyland, drinks with them and gives them a handy.

2. The other version of the players coach is to teach the players their job, how to be successful, how to win, how to be men in the game of football and off the field as well.

Guess which one we had...

Raphael is still on this team??

I haven't seen him make any sort of impact since 2013.

C'mon Dizz, he wasn't that bad. In fact he was one of the few safeties on our team that made plays.

Yeah he's no all-pro but he did consistently grade out above average.

If I was forced to choose between Vaccaro or Bush for 2016, I'm leaning toward Bush.
