    You're being too kind, "le" is the masculine, "la" the feminine.

    Griffin really is a very good player when he plays like a man. We've all seen it from him too. Unfortunately, it's been a while hasn't it?

    I think he is getting pregnant during the preseason.

    I, for one, am glad to hear it. All of you can agree that Griff needs to stop being a puss and do something. Arent his statements a big hint that hes talking about safety play?

    Yes, I am aware that in one game, the safeties were very deep, and I dont think anyone liked it. However how many times did you see a player catch over the middle, and not get nailed.

    This is one of the worst defenses we have had in quite some time, and despite whos at fault, no one can argue against his point, the team does need to toughen up and start hitting people.

    As far as the whole blitzing thing goes, we couldn't blitz the 1st game because Brady would shred us with his arm. We contained them at the start, but then they got some quick scores and things got ugly. Ridley ran all over us.

    The next game we did a good job of stuffing the run but Rivers shredded our D as usual and we couldn't keep up with their receivers. I place a lot of the blame on Gray for that one.

    I thought our D played adequately the 3rd game but some crazy events got the Lions right back in the game (just like those crazy events got us the lead).

    I'm not ready to throw Gray under the bus yet. I haven't seen enough of what he can do with this defense. There's some talent there so if it clicks, we might see a major turnaround. If by week 8 we're still near the bottom of the league, then its time to start pointing fingers.

    It's week 4 and we've played the Patriots, Chargers, Lions, and Texans with some key injuries. Not exactly a great stretch to build defensive stats.
