Well this is a thread about the secondary, so I'm not sure why the inaccurate bashing of the oline (even the running game) was necessary.

Am I suppose to commend all posts because I'm a moderator?

Isnt that like reverse prejudice agsinst mods? Lol. They should be able to have their opinions too. Were all big boys here. Maybe its just because i am fresh off of ES but that didnt seem so bad. Anyway rite now we are smack dab in the middle of the turnaround. On one side the team is younger, we "supposedly" have a franchise qb, and as opposed to almost everything but tight end being a glaring weakness two years ago, we now have two. O line ( which has atleast two or three working parts, and some young - maybe potential starters in the wings), and secondary. Which imo is dead in the water. Hey like i said two years ago our wr's, rb's, dline, and qb were all dead in the water too. On the flip side we all like to say Shanny is rebuilding , but a loss is a loss is a loss is not a win! To say your happy about losing cus we grabbed rg3 is - well ridiculous. Of course now that is the easy take on it but come on. I mean if you look at Shannys record since Mr Elway walked away it is NOT GOOD. We are at a Crossroads rite now. One foot still in the bad and one foot in the good. Were gonna take another step forward or another step backward - stay tuned.

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

Mods have every right to express opinions. My gripe is calling a post moronic. There are some really, really lousy posts. There are posts that don't make any sense, and authors who habitually post nonsense. But the one in question was "full" of facts compared to most posts I read. Even when I read the same nonsense over and over I just wouldn't feel good about calling it moronic...easier to just stick him/her on my ignore list and enjoy this board all the more.

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

Clever use of quotations around "full" in '"full" of facts'

How about instead of moronic, I say "inaccurate" that better?

I think the post in question was very "negative" and "one - sided". Sort of hit on all the "bad" aspects and not the " good". I dont know if i would call them facts or innacurate either because i think its all opinion. No rite or wrong. Like i said we are at a crossroads - looking behind (which is something concrete ) is going to produce negative comments as well it should. Looking forward ( which is all wishful thinking to be fair ) should produce positive comments. I mean i think shanallen had a hell of a mess to clean up. Age - lack of picks - no depth. Were on our way boys. Original comment was a tad bit on the overly negative and embittered into oblivion side. Lol.

Its been several years now since Sean Taylor was murdered and ill be damned if he isnt going to be more missed now than ever before. God could we use his presence in the backfield about now. Im still very optimistic about this regime and snyders silence. That is something nobody wants to give credit to shanallen for - where the hell has mr snyder gone?!?

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

The secondary has played a little suspect this preseason. The defensive linemen and the linebackers have played better than the defensive backs. Hall and Wilson have played well. Crawford the rookie has been a pleasant surprise. But the problem might be the safeties. I would prefer a tandem of Tanard Jackson and possibly Gomes or Doughty as this year's starting safeties. Doughty gives up big play at times as he showed in the first game against the NYG last season. Jackson plays tenaciously when he wants to. I'm still not sure about Brandon Meriweather though. I would prefer him as a reserve.

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

Is there a specific post that people are referring to as moronic or inaccurate? I'm confused.

Not to move on would be moronic.

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

Suddenly I don't feel so bad about our secondary.

Kevin Barnes is in the mix to start at CB along with Chris Houston for Detroit. We probably would have cut him.
