In response to LazarusintheSanatorium's comment:
"This, what this guy said. Also, you think Gregory and Chung are bad? Wait till you see Ebner out there. Ebner was the guy who, in cover 4 prevent defense, gave up point number 28 to Buffalo. Let's stick with Chung and Gregory, I don't think either Wilson or Ebner is ready to take their spots.
You remember DMC's first INT in that game? Yeah, McCourty was playing the underneath and was expecting safety help over the top(Tavon Wilson), but the safety was late. A better QB catches that WR in stride for a deep TD. Luckily, we were face Fitzpatrick." ~49Patriots
You're not allowed to offer this much detailed information on these boards any longer (those days are gone). Ya just gave roughly 80% of this forum's daily respondents, Mass Annuerisms.
Pass-coverage as we all know, has nothing to do with Safety play or about pass-pressure up front (and don't even THINK'a mentioning "situational Offense and defense"...you'll be tarred and feathered on the spot). Safeties are an archaic position...1 day back in the back in the stone-ages, the Bedrock Boulders didn't know what to do with Barney Rubble...so they just said, "Stand far back, so maybe the other team won't be AS tempted to target 90 yards of the field all at once." That is in fact, All a Safety is tasked with: Looking statuesque in order to live up to his positional namesake...on the field however, they actually have nothing whatsoever to do with defending the pass...nor any job whatsoever. Likewise, during certain passing plays, the Front 7's job is to make sure that the opposing team doesn't have any sorta time portal at their disposal, allowing them to drop back and pass, Then stop time altogether, in order to subsequently hand off to a runningback in an Einsteinian trick-play that noone ever saw comin' til it was too late, and the RB was already behind the Front 7 defenders. IF they can do this=Bam, they've done their only tasked job expected on any given opposing Offense passing play.
C'mon man...that's football 101. The Globe's #1 Pats writer, will tell'ya just the same. IF an opposing passing play succeeds in any way, shape, OR form...It's because NE's sh#tty Cornerback (NE's failing CB=Always Devin McCourty...every down)- failed. Nothing more, nothing less. That's it=End of story.
Lmao...You'll get no sort of argreeing attitude with the likes of THAT ^ quote of yours... 49, we're lookin' for this:
"If your #4 on the depth chart with the likes of Arrington, Moore and DMC giving up 300+ yards a game, ahead of you, it probably time to polish up your resume."
You do this, and the BDC world's your oyster... Noone will ever question those nit-picky "incidental additionals", such as how the average NFL QB in this day and age on ANY and every average outting, throws for 270+ yards anyway...nor how When an opposing Offense is squaring off against a HOF Tom Brady Q-backed Pats Offense, They KNOW that they gotta put points up on the board in order to keep pace, and more often than 95% of the other QB'ed teams in the league, have the best odds for a fighting chance to Win...and more often than otherwise, they're spending the greater portion of each and every Pats matchup, usually attempting to score from behind (for some reason, I sadly feel that this might be too open-ended on this thread...lacking that final 1/2 inch step further for some of the reader's on here)...
Also, I think it's absolutely hilarious that bredbru didn't offer up a "plus 1" for prolate's remarks right here...
"I always thought fans were making too much of his two starts last year. The secondary was bad last year which meant anyone had a chance to start. And Ras is still essentially a rookie with a long way to go. Hopefully they can work him in more as the season progresses because other then McCourty (who I think is playing well this year) the secondary still has big deficiencies."
Why is that...? Ras I is, as we all heard over and over in between every 10th of the 6000 Janoris Jenkins ("ONCE In a GENERATION...Complete and Total shutdown Cornerback"), NE's A#1 stud starting Cornerback ("based on his exceptional rookie play" 1 game=3 Tackles).
Still waiting for what people trully NEED out of Pats CB, in order to regard them as "Decent Cornerbacks"... Is it: The strength of God, the lightning firepower of Zeus, the fire-storm of combo through Mercury and Mars, the gods of wars and tempests, and total malleability in all forms...the Ref forgiveness of Jesus. Lol, what else (let's just get a list down)? =Like Has never allowed 1 pass completion in 8 years, and has 400 Tackles each season, 250 Passes defensed, 80 Interceptions (only 40 run back for TDs though), 50 TFLs, 20 Sacks (himself), and has an additional 25 or so KRs for TDs (b/c if he doesn't play STs on top of that, then Forget it!?!)...
Would this do?
funny post laz,
i'm totally fine with disagreement. i hope you are or can become so.
one of the biggest casues of acrimony and antipathy on this board seems to be that many here cant disagree peacably. there really is no emotional loss if someone diagrees. no one dies. no one is humiliated (unless it's an inside job).
out of curiosity, i don t know if you are a biggun on the line guy, skillguy or what; but did you ever play wr or cb at any level? it's just that devin's technique is so poor often and we differ so greatly in what we see with him. (and so be it. so what. let any difference that exists be).
anyway, hope you dont allow yourself to get angry or get your blood presure up about simple differences of opinon on this board. if anything, we all could respect one another and have each other's back routing for our team.
