    That's because we usually beat the crap out of them. This is football you know, not chess or darts.

    And the more important compliment on page 5:
    Good to know someone can acknowledge our D line is still elite without Al. (cough couch Chrissy Collinsworth cough cough)

    That Monday Morning Quarterback is too freaking long to get into. Every single week I try, and then stop 2 pages into it. But I like how you pulled the good stuff for us to see.

    In case you didn't notice, he also ranked us like five spots below Chicago, who looked terrible in the process of losing their best defensive player and showing off with a terrible game from their new QB. Seriously? Who would think that we wouldn't beat Chicago if we played them this weekend?

    Yeah but I'mgoing to overlook that one. He also has the Pats, who are 0-0, at number 1.
    Aside from those two, everything he said about everything else seems to be spot on. Besides, IDGRA what he says about anything else on there. I was just pointing out the props he gave to our team.

    Did Cecil blitz a lot in the first 3 quarters?

    He blitzed at opportune times. To me 3rd down and 8-plus yards is a blitzing down every time. Take guys out of flat coverage and send them at the QB, then keep the play in front of you and react. Never just let a QB dink and dunk you with short passes and big YAC on 3rd and long. That 3rd and 12 conversion after the Kearse sack absolutely killed me. We have to get pressure in that situation.
    Great QB's make mistakes under pressure, but average QB's look fantastic without pressure.
