I figured that if i couldnt express or defend myself it wasnt a board i wAnted to be on. Than i literally got booted off for not wishing devin thomas good luck when he retired. Lol. I swear to God that is basically how it went down. One of the mods checked my ip address or sonething and figured out i got the peahead and booted off before. I was banned for life at that point.

But now I think the flaws are coming out and the things I didn't like about Mike then are the same they are now. He's the same guy they got rid of in Denver. I think we are better off in some areas since he got here and would now like to see what a new offensive minded young HC and an experienced motivated (unlike Haslett) young DC could do. If we're sticking with the 3-4 than get an experienced 3-4 coach. I haven't researched guys but there is certainly some talent out there. I had no idea who Mike Smith was until he became coach of the Falcons. Mike's gonna be what he was...he lost his team his owner his defenses the last years sucked and we've all heard the micromanaging egomaniac stories. We have a GM and some young talent and probably the best QB or one of the best in the NFL. Thanks Mike for helping to clean house. Let's move on now.
First, well said. I agree with almost all of this post - except I am not ready to jettison MS and start from ground zero again unless we end up with 5 or fewer wins this year.

Let's see how he finishes out the year. At this point, based on what some of the insider's have said, it seems that MS may have lost much of the team. Certainly Haslett appears to have lost the D. If we have a collapse, no turnaround whatsoever, I think it is a legitimate conversation to ask okay, not seeing it Mike. If on the other hand, he pulls it out and we finish in 7-9 or 8-8, I got no problem with giving him one or possibly two more years (depending on next year).

A "Goat Quote". I think we have a new catch phase!

I think this thread has gone from absolutely ridiculous to sonething worth discussing and it has some people doubting what they were thinking about Shanny just three weeks ago. To say it is just for the bashers isnt fair - alot of defending in these parts. Its all just opinion on both sides of the fence. People are sick of the bashing. People are sick of the defense. Im glad that HTTR 24-7 interjected. Brings alittle bit of credibility to what was once considered angry rants of non-fans.
Edit: ridiculous to those who now see some merit in the question not me personally.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Punch ... do you feel obligated to respond to every post made by someone else? I am just curious what would happen if you had a thought you did not express - would the voices in your head drive you to kill? Root for the Cowboys? or would your brain actually explode?

I kid, I kid. It's all good. I just laugh everytime I look at your post count.

In response to this i say:

I am on tapatalk usually. It is much easier to post in the same threads because there is a " participated threads " tab. So i tend to post in only about two or three seperate threads for long periods of time. I figure this gives plenty of room for people to not be annoyed by my post count and also allows me to quiet the voices in my head.
Edit: not to toot my own horn but i think sometimes i make some pretty good points, but instead of people saying - " i never thought about it that way" (even if they are thinking that) they say - your annoying thus leading to more posts from yours truely.

Anyone know the record for posts on a thread? My voices were just curious.

Funny you bring up people avoiding discussion, because I know plenty that have recently and it's not because of why you seem to think.

It's quite comical how you see things really.

Paranoid much?
First of all it's way too small a site/community to require a mass anything. So let's just say it's coincidence. You, SS and a few other active mods have repeatedly defended this specific regime and negated skeptics and their posts. Name one active mod who clearly states the regime is a failure? That's the bottom line. What difference does it make how we got there (coincidence vs collusion)?

And you guys are way too smart to not realize how much sheep mentality takes over within any institution/organization. C'mon.

So 150 say at least wait till end of season, and 11(10 since SS voted for fun) think fire the bum now, and you pin that on sheep mentality. That's great.

Are the 38 that say wait till after the end of the season lost sheep yearning to be free but too blinded by The Great Mod Conspiracy (coming to a theatre near you, this conspiracy has not yet rated by the MPAA)?

C'mon man.
