Hey man, another thing.....regardless of what you or anyone here thinks or says about who I am or what I say I've done in my life, I admittedly have acted like an idiot in responding so offensively. Not knowing me, as none of you do, I too would have reacted with similar scepticism in the same manner as you and others did in evaluating the obnoxiously cavalier way that I came off about it all. I said some pretty low crap to you specifially. Again, aplologies for anything that I may have said here about you or your family........Thanks.
Very nice of you to display contrition.
Now tell us who you are as a former NFL player and we will be able to more fully embrace your expertise.
Good morning Babe. First, my apologies to you also for all of the old man jokes and insulting stuff. In the end, you seem to be pretty sincere supporter of the New England Patriots and as such, I should be embracing your posts instead of retalliating in such a foolish manner to your understandable denials to who I say I am beyond BDC. The fact is, I can't tell you, or anyone else here who I am. I have a different life now than what I did when playing. As I mentioned here, I now do "sensitive" work for the U.S. government. Just like anyone else, I prefer to keep my privacy secure. I have family, just like everybody else, who I need to think about too. You never know, especialy with some of the stuff we all say here, I could compromise my own safety. I'd just like to make sure none of it could come back with some crazy looking me up or running to the media, etc. I'm sure you get it. But, I will promise this much....I shall refrain from rediculous dialogues and name caling and will continue to post what I see as honest, interpretations on the subject of the OP. In doing so, I hope that you will see from the content of my posts that I am genuinely who I say and that I have done what I say I have. I maintain that I have an excellent personal perspective on the game of football and I will keep it to that. I'd like to have a good rapport with all who post here and as you will see, am committed to doing my part in repairing and building positive relationships here. Call my first 1200 or so posts a lesson in both humility and humanity. Sorry I can't share much more than that.
Okay. But if you cannot back up that you are a former NFL player you shouldn't trot that out as evidence of a superior insight into the game.
It's not as if players have any greater insight into the game anyway. They constantly disagree with each other's assessments and are just as wrong just as often as the average fan. Hell, Matt Millen was a player and he was terrible as a GM.
I'll go along with the new deal of being respectful, but if you look like you're just another fake account of Rusty's trying to further his insane agenda, all bets are off.
His agenda is:
1. It's all Brady's fault.
2. There are multiple conspiracies against BB.
3. BB cannot stop Brady and the OC from passing and running the shotgun spread.
4. A poor defense is good.
5. BB is incapable of doing anything wrong whatsoever.
If you agree with that agenda you are probably him. Because I know of no poster that I am sure is for real or a RL fan that buys into that whole insane spin.
