Alright...I've thought back on my initial response at times, and have come to the conclusion that I was "A D#ck." Wrong however, no...but again, acting like A Pr#ck, I hate doing...I never dig that about myself, and even on a messageboard, I feel pathetic when I DO (ain't part of my true nature to attack...IS part of my true nature that kill people that DO attack unprovoked-*cough like i just did).
Dane Fletcher=Weakside Outside Linebacker pass-rush specialist. Hasn't he played OLB for something like 99% of the snaps through his entire collegiate career??? Isn't he KNOWN for the way he can use multiple pass-rush moves to get into the backfield at OLB and get TFLs and hopefully Sacks??? Spikes=SILB...2 TOTALLY, and completely different LB spots...
Moving on, I do st#piid things like that ONLY when it's something I feel strongly about. And in terms of Brandon Spikes, even though it's just a football messageboard, I DO feel that he doesn't get the respect for the way he shored up NE's SILB spot for the first time in half a decade- a decade (since Ted Johnson). Brandon Spikes's play IS the reason WHY Jerod Mayo went to the pro-bowl (yes...really). And when I think about how people diss him for missing like 2-3 games for his ADD cr#p meds (that tub Ron Borges did, when ggrading out how each player played during the season...think he gave spikes a D. Yet Mankins misses more games and gets an A)), or the fact that he can't play b/c his 40 time is appalling... They have ZERO idea what Spikes has brought to the table and what his job is. He's gotta be quicker than ANY-one in reading, diagnosing the play, getting a jump on the play's direction, BOTH offense and his fellow defenders...so he can what? Smash face first into 1 or 2 O-lineman (but always 1 b/c NE has only 3 down D-Lineman, AND half the time, ALSO smash through if it's just 1 O-Lineman who's half a foot taller and at least 50lbs heavier than him, Take on a FB, for what? His reward? His reward is that it's his JOB to do so, so Jerod Mayo's perfect wrap tackling has a totally clean and unhindered look on the ball-carrier. ZERO stats...Ha-ha, pro-bowl? Not in this lifetime. Oh, and fans and wport's writers still sell him short.
Spikes is a FANTASTIC SILB...never comes in outta shape, at U of FL- always regarded as a workhorse, and a team flag waver gettin' guys fired up. GREAT SILB...and a freaking ROOKIE?!? Remember NE's interior run-defense the year prior? No spikes... Remember that Brown's game where Hillis tore up NE's interior Defense...? Coaches and Players were asked about the run game gameplan. 1 Brown said="Simple, make Spikes run around or just run away from him, and run directly towards Mayo." That's it... NO Brandon Spikes=No Jerod Mayo in pro-bowl, and awful NE run d.
...now that my rage is out again...sorry for being a j#rk in case #1.
