Almost 500 yrds of offense allowed. 167 rushing and 319 passing. Anybody saying anything other than this D is junk is living in la la land. Hopefully it can get better but this doesn't give warm fuzzy feeling.

Since there was so much sense of urgency this past week, I'd consider moving Stephone Anthony back to the Mike and get Stupar and Robertson at the OLB...

Robertson really played his heart out and got a totally sh*tty call on an uncatchable 4th down play that should've ended it...

I like Laurinaitis, but he really did look listless and has nothing left in the tank...sort of like Jairus Byrd...

that's your prerogative and nothing wrong with it, but you don't have to try to attack or diminish those that are upset and don't feel that way right now. They have the right to feel the way they do as much as you do.

People who are die hard fans are going to be candid about what they just saw. If you don't like it then ignore it. You can post what you saw good, etc, but we choose to be candid about what just happened
If you dont like what I post then follow your own advice and ignore it. I wasnt even addressing you when you came to the defense of your girlfriend. Hypocrite.

To be honest, I am about to bail from B&G here. Too many panty waste fans. It used to be a good site but it has gone down hill fast.

Can't hang it on the DBs alone, there was no pass rush - THERE WERE NO FREAKING SACKS!!!

And when you're in a shootout, and you're Drew Brees & the Saints, you can't go down the field and walkaway with a rookie kicker taking shots for threes...

It was a great effort, with terrible breakdowns...
