Mt Hurl, the real genuine fans here know I never said ANY of what you wrote above. I said "SOMEONE" must thing Meriweather is the 2nd best FS in the AFC because he backed up the starter(Weddle) two years in a row.
Awful players don't make Pro Bowls. Fact.
As for Chung, I specifically he said he and Spikes would be needed in 2011 before we can judge the D. He came back, and voila, the D played well in the 2011 postseason, a lot better than the offense did. That's a fact. Then, I said Chung has to play a full 16 games in 2012 to even be considered to be re-signed here.
That's it. That's all I have ever said on both players. You idiots thought Meriweather would be Rodney and Chung the next Polamalu. Then, when it didn't happen, you would come in here and lash out like a clueless idiot.
Lower your expectations. Hightower is not the second coming of London Fletcher or some other quality Pro Bowl kind of a linebacker. He's also only in his 2nd year playing on a D that has been absolutely throttled with injuries.
Bottom line is, you idiots, you little dorky losers who apparently love the Pre KRaft era with Rod Rust, the Sullivans, etc, and can't see the forest for the trees, and you are so extreme in your analysis, you sound like uneducated fans, which clearly you are.
Can Newton fakes a lot of defenders out of their jock straps, moron. If you watched any other NFL games in this league, you'd know this.
You also seem to know that our team, as bangged as it had been, is in the upper 5% of teams in this league due to BB's teambuilding approach, which is something you mock daily here, too.
Other teams lose one key player and their entire season craps the bed. We lose 3, 4, 5 key players and we barely lose on the road to a hot team that needed some half baked fake call to beat us who the media claims is the best team in the league right now.
Two years in the league? Hightower had a great rookie season last year. This year, he's been asked to take on the Mayo role which is not the sexy LB role here. It's why TCal, your stupid buddy was constantly ssaying he "sucks" all the time. Then, he's gone and now it's the next guy on the list to scapegoat for you and your immature and childish little gang of morons.
BB has coached this team for 14 years and you still don't get it. I'd be moritified if I was you.
First off you did too say all those glorious things about all those players, you even went so far to say Chung shut down Antonio Gates all by himself. This is what you do...you lie...you back track and when the embarrassment gets to be too great, you lie and lash out at everybody. It's pathetic.
As for Hightower, he's fat, he's slow, he's lazy, his technique sucks and he has done virtually nothing in his time here, but rest assured the next time he makes a tackle you will start a thread about it. Why? Because you don't understand football and you're pretty much the largest moron on the Internet.
And don't make excuses about our injuries, you spent the last seven years telling the world we build for depth and we're not stupid like everyone else signing "big name free agents". Loser. And you also spent the last seven years telling the world how we save 5-10 million going into every season for situations like this...the good players are gone...we missed out on them again, bozo.
So get your keyboard ready, Hightower is bound to run into some guy by accident one of these Sundays...you get that thread ready!
In man coverage he did that day. Sure. But, BB mixes zone and man, usually using zone before Talib got here, Cupcake.
Hightower is now "fat", huh? THat's a new one. Do you just ask your students for new material so you can come on here with some new stuff, Cupcake?
We're 7-3 with a decimated D and you don't think that is a testament to BB's depth? Are you this dumb? LOL!
I've already mentioned the cap hell teams who are multiple games under .500 who wasted picks left and right in recent years and swapped huge chunks of their rosters, no failing.
You could not be any more wrong on that topic. You lost, dummy. We lose a key player, another guy steps in. FACT.
That's the genius of BB. It has no bearing on me being disappointed or annoyed that after a Bye some key players can't shake the injury bug.
The "cap hell" teams that are losing all have one thing in common...they don't have Brady and they don't have Belichick the coach. You remember those two right? Those two are the reson we win...despite you blaming Brady and questioning coaching decisions every week, they are why we win. It's not because of Kyle (let me discover new ways to lose games for us) Arrington, it's not because of fat boy Hightower...or the boat loads of free agent and draft busts. Sorry that you haven't figured that out yet...you sure you have a 152 IQ? LOL!
