In Response to Re: Colts Reggie Wayne gets caughtin the cookie jar!
TP - your arguements are poorly constructed. You need to spend a little more time developing them.
RESPONSE: Oh really, Professor Dog(gggg)?? My opinions have been, in my estimation. clearly and succinctly laid out. On the other hand, your retorts that I am the devil, and that you don't think Wayne's performance will be affected at all by his off-field troubles, are child-like, and pie in the sky, respectively.
In fact you said you were concerned about Wayne's play.
RESPONSE: I never said that I was "concerned about Wayne's play." I said that his play could be affected by his off-field follies.
I said, if he plays poorly, he's got a number of capable receivers to cover for him.
I don't know how that comment amounts to paranoia, but I do know you reside in a world unlike the rest of us, so what may be paranoia to you, in this case, is called alternatives for the rest of us.
RESPONSE: There you go again with your childish personal attacks, and your attempts to take my words out of context. I said that, if Wayne is less than 100% either physically or mentally, that it would negatively impact the Colts. But, I did not say that it would destroy the Colts. That...and the reference to me as the devil, is where your raging paranoia shines through. Furthermore, your "alternatives", Gonzalez, Garcon, and Collie, though decent WRs (Garcon has a chance to blossom into a star), are simply not in Wayne's class...yet. So, if Wayne regresses, so will the Indy passing attack.
Further, your point, I guess is that like Woods, Wayne may be in a situation that causes enough distractions to affect his play. Ok.
RESPONSE: I take it by "OK", you mean you agree. Fine.
Could we say the same about Brady last year. Although statistically better than most other years (given the receivers he had), a substantially less effective year overall than most. Is Brady like Woods in that he entered into a situation (Gisele marriage) that caused enough distraction to cause him to have a less than effective year?
RESPONSE: Absolutely not!! As usual, when you cannot defend your position, you try to change the focus of the discussion. Nice try, son. If you want to refer to Brady getting married as a "distraction", so be it. Brady performed well in 2009. He should do even better in 2010, after being a full year away from his serious knee injury. If you think anyone's going to buy that marrying Gisele is in any way comparable to Wayne or Woods running around on their wives...thereby exposing themselves to hellish situations at home, and public ridicule...good luck...LOL!!
And now that Brady has said he won't be around like he was in the past and is hoping some of the new veterans take leadership roles for him, will he be affected even more?
RESPONSE: Surely you jest...LOL!! The only thing that affected Brady last year was poor pass protection, rust, and gaining confidence in his knee.
If that is what you mean, then I see your point about Wayne.
RESPONSE: Once again, you are straining to change the focus of our little debate. What Wayne and Woods did was expose themselves to public ridicule by blatantly cheating on their wives...and placed themselves in a the throes of a very nasty family problem, or even a divorce. Things like that do tend to have a negative affect on people.
Boy am I glad he is a receiver and not the QB. Know what I mean?
RESPONSE: How much more absurd can you get? Know what I mean?
