Re: Portis, Fletch, Moss The Rest no heart

But most of all, it's flat out uninformed, and insulting to the players on a team that prides itself on things like heart and toughness. I know if any member of the Redskins was around someone who said they lacked heart, they'd probably be very offended and realize that they are probably dealing with a less-than-intelligent source.

So if it's a dumb argument on every level, my advice would be not to make it.

Re: Portis, Fletch, Moss The Rest no heart

Additonally, there ARE tangible issues that we all can see. To ignore them and blame poor play on an intangible is intellectually dishonest. It really is a cop-out. It is saying "All those complicated real things can be fixed in one fell swoop with just a little more caring" That is just silly. As Tripp mentioned the human effects on the game do exist and in some cases they can be the cause of poor play but they don't explain everything, espcially the real tangible things we CAN see and they certainly can't be quantified in anyway. To those who think "heart" is the answer I'd suggest just being honest and objective about your team. Watch some replays and see if you can find the spots where a guy gets overmatched because he wasn't as good as the other guy and look for the spots where a guy just gave up or got beat because he didn't care. You'll find a lot more of the former.

But it's when people come in here and say "You need to have heart and this team has none." where people start to be skeptical of said poster, and when the poster claims that he can see on television or from the stands that this team has no heart, then he's sort of thrown his credibility and maybe his sanity as well to the wind.

Intangibles are by definition not tangible. You can't see them. We can speculate all day about their effect on the game, but you can't use them in an argument and cite observation as your source. Then, satire starts.
cheers to that

Re: Portis, Fletch, Moss The Rest no heart

I like teams that play with emotion and heart. However, the best teams just get it done and win. Gibbs I had great teams that just beat you down. They were not an emotional team. The Patriots under Bellicheat are not an emotional team.

We are a good team, not an elite one. That's why we can't beat the best teams. The Giants just have A LOT more talent and a very good coach.

We are probably a year or two from moving up. However, everyone knows that this season was tied to Jason Campbell's improvement. Our offense just is not that good. Until it gets better we are going to struggle.

Hey, a lot of towns would be thankful for a 9-7 season (my prediction).

some people on this board are so quick to discount or laugh at anyone who thinks or wants to talk about something other than 40 times or specific plays . . . there are certain intangibles in this league that seperate a great player from a good player and great teams from good teams and lil bit of that involves the "heart" . . .but yeah anyone who thinks other than you is an idiot and clearly doesnt know football like you guys . . .give me a break
I agree with everything you said Mountain. I just don't think it applies to this team. I saw guys playing their ass off and don't believe for one minute we lost the game because of a lack of heart. But I do agree with you. I think Fletch for one plays with a lot of heart. I have seen teams pretty much give up and you can SEE they're not playing with heart. But I don't see that in OUR team and I think that's what's offensive about this thread.
