In response to Bunker Spreckels' comment:
Ok, I'll address each of these:
Merriweather is the second best safety in the AFC - Never said this. I said "someone" thinks he is because he's been chosen two years in a row as a back up/reserve at FS. I have no idea where this came from other than another troll framing it as such and then a troll like you running with it. I always said I didn't like his high tackling, low IQ and bad angles.
Chung is basically as good as Troy Palumalu - Never said this. Ever. I said each is a SS and Chung isn't a cover guy so don't expect him to be one. BB expects his Safeties to play both a FS and a SS, while Pitt uses Polamalu as a SS near the line, almost exclusively. Polamalu is actually more reckless than Chung. LeBeau uses his Safeties differently than BB but I never said a word about comparing either player.
Markell Carter is going to be really something - No idea what this even means. I don't think I made 2 posts regarding a project PS pick. UNreal. You're so desperate to lie, you make things up.
Ocho didn't work out here because of Brady - Never said that either. I said I wished they used OCho more like they used Moss which was running more basic routes and just letting each's physical ability be the thing. They chose not to do it while still passing way too much anyway last year, even in the SB with an obvious loss. Brady threw 46 times to try to do it all himself, so really, no one is good enough for Brady unless elite. Ocho wasn't at all Moss, but Ocho was a scapegoat to deflect against Brady's average year last year. Gronk breaks a record, Welker is Welker, Hernandez is better than 2010 and you expect Ocho to get reps and produce? Just how many passes does Brsdy need to average to make Ocho a vaued option here? LMAO. I do stand by the idea that if he was used in the SB with BJGE, we win.
McCourty is as good as Derrel Revis - Never said this. Another lie. I said McCourty's rookie year blew away Revis's. It did. It was also superior to Ty Law's 1995 year. Revis only somehow became this defacto greatest CB due to NY promotion and Rex Ryan's presence as coach in NY. Revis great, he's just not this defacto HOF Deion Sanders CB. It's embarrassing watching a selfish Revis get a big head, hold out be average in 2010 and now be hurt again but he's somehow the best. LMAO
If we only gave the ball to Ben Jarvus Green Ellis more we would of won the Super Bowl _ This is without question what I said and I stand behind it. It's no different than the team seeing him run for 8 carries and 50 yards in the AFC title game, him be benched, and then Brady almost lose the game for us. Why you don't use effective, smart players to help you win as I watch Brady throw games away, I have no idea.
The impending doom that is the uncertainty of the NFL lockout will leave teams scrambling/cutting players left and right to get under the salary cap and then we will just swoop in and sign all these players that teams "over paid foolishly for". Never happened.
- Actually it did happen as it does every year. Many older players, some who had nice value such as Brian Waters, Andre Carter and Mark Anderson all helped us reach the DB last year. It's fascinting to me watching Hurlie lie and then make a fool of himself so easily. It's shame Carter got hurt late in the year. If not, he's a big difference and we coast to a SB.
Clay Mathews is overrrated and e should be glad we didn't get him because now we have Cunningham at half the price!! - Never said this. I said I liked having more picks, including Gronk, instead of panicking and pretending one player, a one trick pony like Clay Matthews who has no interest in Run D, is a better approach.
Patrick Chung single handidly shut down Antonio Gates - No idea where this comes from. I do like Chung and I do like when he helps the D win games. He's clearly important to how the D operates. As is Spikes. Huge pieces down the middle. VItal, really. This was proven last year when each went down and again on Sunday when the back end suffered, late. My only complaint with him is durability.
We stole Shaun Ellis from the Jets!! - Again, never did I use the word "stole". You're a liar. Any veteran depth added after the lockout was a fantastic job by BB. See above with the Carter, Anderson and Waters signings. He had a budget to use on FA moves because of how incredible his personnel management has been in the last fw years. Just because Ellis didn't do anything of substance, didn't mean the logic wasn't a plus for the team. Not every draft pick or signing will be 100! fantastic. You're childish brain is embarrassing for you. I can see why you make 50 K a year making cupcakes at age 50. LOSER
We will never run the 43 here...you are stupid! - Never said this. I said just because BB is going to a 4-3 base doesn't mean he will eliminate the 3-4. I was right again. He hasn't. You;re a liar. My god are you sick. I can't believe you're allowed inside a school, to be honest. Do you touch little boys, too, Hurlie? I can see why you're ashamed to tell us what it is you teach if it isn't Home Economics.
Matt Cassell is wicked good and Scott Pioli is too! - Cassel was fantastic in 2010 with Weis. This year, he's been bad and so has the entire team. Frankly, the talent they have, I am shocked and take responisibility there. I still think they have nice talent.
Brady is spoiled and dictates how this offense runs - Yes. This is true. He's been spoiled and does have a lot of autonomy just like Brees, Rodgers and Peyton Manning, amongst possibly others. I don't like how he prefers the shotgun and then we lose agaisnt good Ds. I am a Pats fan not some dorky bald loser who wants to have sex with the guy.
We should trade Brady and start the Mallett dynasty - Never said this. I said if Brady has a bad year, it's something to consider loading up on 2 1st rd picks and moving on. I said IF and TO CONSIDER if he has a bad year. I didn't say it's a definite if he has a bad year.
You're the same pink hat who had no idea that Harrison would retire and Bruschi would as well. I was laughing at you dopey bandwagoners who have Pats SB DVDs playing on a loop unable to understand life goes on.
SF dealt Montana because of the cap era unfolding. The cap doesn't go up until 2015. Brady can't make 20 mil per if he's worse than what he was making prior to 2009. The math doesn't work, dummy.
It's the same reason why they didn't give Welker a 3-4 year deal at 9-10 million per. Duh.
You live in some odd little 12 year old fantasy land, Hurlie. That's your problem. Preheat the oven and get out the frosting.
Alright it's going to be hard, but I'll try to pick through your 14 paragraph rant and point out some of your lies...here it goes.
After the San Diego game last year you said that Chung shut down Gates by himself - you said that! I argued that it was not rue and that is wasn't really possible for you to actually see most of that anyways without coach's tape or being at the game. Now what I did see was a guy (Gates) runnig into double coverage - thus the reason he was taken out of the game plan (Belichick does this with key weapons better than anyone..see Moss, Fitzgerald). Later it was also discovered that Gates was playing with a knee injury that would keep him out of the next three games.
But you went ahead and said..."Chung single handidly shut down Gates!!!". You said that. You did. If you say you didn't then you are a fraud and liar (which is what we all know anyway).
You said that Patrick Chung if used along the line of scrimmage as a strong safety would be as good a player as Palumalu. You said that two weeks ago. You said we couldn't expect Chung to be good in coverage and if he was used like Palumalu he would be the same player!! You said that!! You did...embarrassing? Yes, but said by you!! And if you believe that Chung would be the same as Palumalu then you are absolutely dillusional...which you are.
TRADE BRADY AND START THE MALLETT DYNASTY
SAid right after the loss to the CARDINALS!!!!!!!! YOU flat out are a liar!! OMG!! You have to be kidding me?!?! You wrote an entire 3 paragraph post about how we can get two first round picks for Brady and start Mallett right now - you said the game was on his shoulders and he should of never thrown that pick. You said it !!!
Bill Belichick will never run the anything but the 34 defense here.
You were the single biggest defender of the 34 defense and the fact that Belichick never ran anything but the 34 his entire life (which is false by the way). See I actually argued with you for an entire Sunday evening explaining the times he DID use the 43 exclucively!! Once again...you are lying:)!:)
Ah yes!! Good old Markell! Little known defensive end that was a draft pick that didn't make the big boy club. You absolutely gushed when you heard that he was being paid extra money by the Patriots to stay on the practice squad. You said this guy is going to be a player...he had the size we were looking for!! I told you that I've seen him run and that his feet looked like they are weighed down in cement. I said that I would never post on this board again if he made the team. I don't even think he is on anyone's practice squad at this point.
You spent weeks telling people how "the salary cap ramifications of the impending doom that is the uncertainty that is the lockout" was allowing us to get players like Ellis!! The warnings were out people!! The Jets couldn't keep Ellis and we were free to swoop in and pay him his 4 million per! We stole this guy from a division rival! You said that you moron!
The impending doom of the uncertainty that is the lockout!!!!!
You treated this one like the Mayan calender!! This was your baby for years!! LMAO!! All these teams were just going to be dumping players left and right!! Now refresh my memory here...did you say we got Carter, Anderson and WAters because of this??? I mean you're not really going to go ahead and suggest that the "impending doon that is the uncertainty that is the lockout" landed us these guys, are you? You said it yourself...this stuff happens every year and it does!!! Guys get cut because of many many many reasons. Coaching changes, scheme changes, under performing, contract, locker room problems, etc. Hell that very year we let go two guys ourselves...Ty Warren and Banta Cain. It had NOTHING TO DO WITH THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE IMPENDING DOOM OF THE NFL LOCKOUT!! YOU MORON!
AS FOR THE REST...REvis, Benny, Merriweather, Pioli, Cassell...
You have bashed Revis calling him overrrated and you did compare him to McCourty. You were far far far away from calling Revis a "great player, but not hall of fame Sanders type". You fell in love with Benny and five minutes into this season tried calling evryone out when he got decent yardage against a bad run defense in Baltimore...he has yet to have anything close to decent game since. You defended Merriweather at every turn. You put Pioli on a pedestal and if you walk into KC right now that entire city thinks he is the reason why that team stinks. Cassell wasn't accurate and is only a back up, yet you had him ranked as a top 5 quarterback as memory serves me...I'm sure you'll never admit that or any of this...all your accounts have been banished over and over again:(
