    Double duh, I just wasn't gonna let you guys pretend this didn't happen. Especially after all the hating and yapping you did concerning this outstanding safety. A safety so outstanding that he not only got his bonus, but 3 more years to boot.

    Guys, I like Lamont Thompson, he's gonna make plays next year, and they're gonna be BIG.

    Shouldn't that read "a religion named after a 7th round draft pick rookie who outperformed every veteran player in the entire secondary, including a former first-round pick and two second-round picks...."

    Granted, this isn't so much a compliment to Hill, as it is an indictment of Woolfolk, LT, and Tank. (And we won't even talk about Beckham....)

    I realise he isnt perfect
    I know he makes a lot of mistakes.
    I will critisise him when needed.

    Elf, don't over rate him. You have a little room to talk until you sound like you are drunk on your own kool aide. Sorry the numbers are so hard to read but I don't know how to use the code tags.

    BiPolar, I don't understand the purpose of your post. By the text of it you try to make Lamont look bad, but then you use the stats to show that he compares favourably to one of the premier safeties in the league (or at least the media darling safety) these days... which is it?

    I don't think the numbers compare favourably for Lamont. Lots more zeros in his column.

    The only columns with zeros are return yards on interceptions. Polamalu has 11 , 2 sacks, 1 interception and 4 passed defenced, more than Thompson. In a 16 game span, that's 0.7 tackles, 0.1 sacks, 0.06 interceptions and 0.25 passed defences more than Thompson per game. Not really a huge difference in my book.

    Now go back to my first post to read why I think stats are misleading in any case.
