In response to TripleOG's comment:
see I dont see why you can just say Mayo s*cked because the team did...if thats the case what are we here praising BB for?? for 2 years he fielded a defensive team that S*cked??? Thanks for proving my point man. Wait till Rusty heres this. By your logic Brady and BB have been coasting through the regular season, feasting on the AFC east and then come playoff time, the rubber meets the wood and we shouldnt expect any plays on D?? Wow....and you think we are close....??
I admitted to Mayo playing better in 2012 in terms of making plays but he doesnt do enough IMO in postseason. Just another guy on a bad defense,,,,,like YOU said...
I cant look at Willis' stats and make anything from them....thats because they have a Great D. SOMEONE is making a play. I dont WANT or NEED Mayo to make plays but being the highest paid....he should do something to get off the field. San Fran is loaded so they have Plenty of playmakers,. Stats dont tell stories...sorry,. Our D cannot get off the Field. In a SB! we had TWO WEEKS to PREPARE and didnt have ONE 3 and Out! Mayo was healthy and ON that D. I can tell you WIllis or Bowman Would NEVER be part of a D that couldnt get off the field..ONCE. Too much competitive fire and passion on that D....ours...not so much. How can they when BB has them play passive,...?? If anything he makes it worse by hyping up the other team so much and then handicapping them on gameday making them sit back and get burnt all day. Twice a year against scrub QBs, he lets them loose...lol and smh
dude the defense sucked in 2009-2011 when did i ever say it didnt? they were baaaad. absolutely no secondary or pass rush.
first off you were the one saying mayo's stats were bad so i proved you kinda wrong showing how he compares with Willis so now they dont tell the story, OK OG.... whatever fits your cause there
look i think around the league mayo is underrated and he is.
the defense has a ton of work to do to get good but the pieces of MAyo, Collins, Hightower, Dennard, Ryan, DMC and Jones are all solid guys and if 4-5 more very good pieces come in we could get a good D
no you read my wrong. I never said mayo stats were bad. IN fact all he has is stats. I SAID he doesnt show up in playoffs. YOu countered with the whole team was bad. I am saying this for anyone...stats dont tell the whole story. Im sorry if I didnt communicate it well to you. What I mean by WIllis' stats dont mean anything is because Ultimately I NEVER scapegoated Mayo. I want our D to be good. Whoever is making the plays is good for me. I am pointing out that mayo has good stats but doesnt change games when they count. Willis, playing on a GREAT D is no comparison as big plays come from that D all the time from different players. One minute its A.Smith than A.Brooks,etc. The slite about BBs S*cking for 2 years was really for Rusty.
In our debate, all I am saying is our D cant get off the field in big games. Mayo is the leader and highest paid player on the D outside of Fork so I expect more , yes. Not to say he needs to carry the team but just dont tell me he is great when he cant make a differnce on the field. He is just another guy come playoff time. Got it. Go look and see how many 3 and outs San Fran when they played Bmore. Sure they lost but it wasnt because they couldnt off the field like ours...Only thing that has changed since 2010 is Tommy Kelly, Dennard and Talib. None of them were on the field two weeks ago though...oh wait, dennard WAS on the field....just didnt make a play. Im glad everyone loves our D. I dont.
