    I did give credit for the great win on Friday night. All I did is pointed out ONE area that needs improvement and all the "Go Teams" and We're #1s" went ballistic!! :yes:

    I was told I could be the 'G':unsure:

    Bro believe me we all want our 50 years of wandering in the football wilderness to end. I think most of us have been through enough bad seasons with this team that we're just enjoying how good this one has been:yes:

    Look. This is not baseball or basketball. You lose in these playoffs, you're season is over. So if we want a Super Bowl... we better fix this problem. We won't be facing the Titans in the playoffs.
    If pointing out that problem is complaining... that fine. Sure beats being a "Go Team" or "We're #1." Those people think we already won the Super Bowl.

    Prevent is playing soft. No DC says "get out there and play soft." It's all about the play calling and giving up 10-15 yards a snap is soft.

    Yeah but we've had plenty of great seasons through out this decade. Now we need a Super Bowl.

    Funny.. now instead of hoping the team loses out he's bagging on fans who have faith in and support them? :lol:

    The logic of the "few who really want a superbowl" never ceases to amaze!

    I know it doesn't, but it's quite simple...
    If sacrificing this season was necessary for a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl... I'm all for it!!! ei: don't want a rerun of last season.
    But that didn't happen and we have a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl. Though there is an area that needs improvement. So I pointed out that area.

    So easy, a caveman could understand it!!! :lol:

    I am happy we have a 1st round bye, and I am happy with the way the season turned out. I am going to enjoy it, because you cant expect 12 wins every year. However, talking about what we could do better is productive in most cases. If Bolts4Life sees some things we could change, or things that would give us a better chance to win in the Playoffs, then this is the place to talk about it! I for one agree that the defense to end the half in the Titans game was too soft and it seems like it has happened a lot during the season.

    Well now it's spelled out in an even easier way for all you "Go Teams" and "We're #1s" to understand.

    So easy, a caveman would understand it!!!

    You don't know the difference and that's ok. To get in a championship game a team must win a certain amount of qualifying games. It doesn't matter how you win them just as long as you do. To say it doesn't matter is pure BS and you obviously don't know what you're talking about.

    Look... a WR coach doesn't tell anyone to drop catches. A DC doesn't tell anyone to play soft. Though you're trying to convince me that they do say that.

    Even prevent defense takes being aggressive but we didn't do that.

    Too bad that's not what you're doing. :lol:

    If all you were doing was pointing out an area of concern in an effort to discuss it, that would be one thing. But you look for any excuse to complain about this team at every opportunity. Then, if anyone disagrees in any way and provides their own opinion you start throwing around the "i'm one of the few who want a superbowl" argument.

    You can spin it whatever way you like and steal whatever Geico ad campaign strikes your fancy, it won't make it true ;)

    You don't know the difference, so I know you don't know what playing off would be either.

    Ughhhhh. This all began when I pointed out the prevent defense at the end of the first half. That IS all I was doing.

    Then all the "Go Teams/We're #1s" got upset.



    BTW... I didn't steal any ad. A caveman fetish started in this forum the day we hired Norv and you know this. So I am attempting to speak that language.

    Read the thread - http://www.bolttalk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=20950

    Everyone was having a discussion about it but YOU had to make it a fight and continued to antagonize people, even those who agreed with you :lol:

    Even when it was pointed out that we were rushing 7 and 8 guys (which is aggressive and not playing soft) and that Ron was mixing up plays and coverage you just ignored it.

    I started it and I know what I posted. This is the opening statement.

    "That that was the last Titans drive in the first half. If it wasn't for those three turnovers... I'd be calling for Rivera's head!!!

    Though I still say... "STOP WITH THE PREVENT CRAP NOW!!!" I don't want to see that again!!!"



    Then all the "Go Teams" and "We're #1s" came in saying crap about complaining.

    I know what the difference is and besides, I'm not the one coming in here trying to tell the whole site what the defense is doing wrong.

    Because you're making stuff up. You don't line your players up in a play soft.

    You know, B4L, if you didn't continuously spout off the "I'm the only one who wants a Super Bowl" nonsense just because someone disagrees with you or takes issue with your "complaints" I'd probably be agreeing with you 100% in these threads.

    I'm not the one making anything up. You are the one trying to tell us all what the defense is doing wrong. There is a difference in a prevent defense and playing soft, there is also playing off. I suggest you go find out the difference.

    Fixed the bad spelling.

    Hey, who are you calling old? I might have a t-shirt older than you man. Also, haven't you heard, "old age and trechery beats youth and skill?" :lol: Just messin with you man. You know we all want to win this Lombardi just as bad as you do. Hell, I've waited decades for it! Let's quit this useless bickering and just focus on winning that Super Bowl! :tup:

    Playing soft is not a format. You can play soft during a blitz. You can also play soft in a prevent.

    Well I think the prevent line up stinks and I'm not the only one. It was also done soft.

    Then stop demonizing me for pointing out an area that needs to change.

    Playing prevent defense in the last two minutes of the second half with a 3 point lead was stupid. Any disagreement?

    Playing prevent defense in the last two minutes of the first half, when the opposing team gets the ball first in the second half was stupid. Any disagreement?

    Seems ONLY posters in here approve of that (so called) strategy.

    No wonder they pay you big bucks to be the DC.. Oh wait...

    Seriously relax man... It pains me to see you ruin every thread with the "I'm a real fan" argument. I bet you're just TONS of fun to watch a game with...

    It's so easy to point out mistakes when you're sitting on a couch watching.. I understand that fans have a right to complain etc, but I also understand that we aren't the ones putting on the pads.

    Ok now I will go back to lurking. :icon_toast:
