    Re: The Rusty Manifesto for Dummies.

    I'm not a fan of posting threads about one person. Rusty has a great deal of football know-how and the thing I object to- which is not something only he does but he does it frequently - is the name calling of other posters and putting down the validity of other positions. 

    Rusty's spot-on critique of political belief systems is ironic as the qualities he can't stand in other's politics are similar to how we experience him here. 

    I will spend a moment on narrative and facts. Some arguments are not fact-based but most "fact based" arguments are flawed as they assemble some facts but ignore other relevant facts. 

    The problem is narrative. We also use narrative to understand our world. 

    For example, a narrative can be "Without Gronk, we have no shot at a Super Bowl," or, "Bill Belichick is the greatest coach of all time." 

    Once that narrative gets too rigid, our pride gets attached and we don't accept evidence to the contrary. 

    So it comes down to whether your narrative is flexible enough to allow new facts to change the assumptions underneath the narrative or not. 

    Unfortunately, once you have decided that "Bill Belichick is the greatest coach/GM of all time and anyone who disagrees and believes Brady gets more of the credit is a pink hat", then your narrative impacts your ability to weigh out different evidence. You'll raise up evidence that supports your position (even if it comes from a previously discredited source like Stephen A Smith), and ignore evidence to the contrary. 

    So I don't want to hear anymore BS about "I bring the facts and you don't." 

    The question is: "is your narrative overly rigid, or are you willing to question your own assumptions." If your narrative is rigid you are not going to be any fun to interact with.

    Babe's entire existance here is to voice his man love for Brady. How many times have you 'permently quit' this board now vag boy? You're problem is ypou can't stay away because if a single post is made saying something bad Brady's play be it right or wrong you are forced to jump in and defend the object of your desires.




    Zip it vag face. I thought you left here for some really great board? Go back there, your contributions here have always been worthless.

    I criticize Brady when it is deserved.



    Hell froze over?  Really? When did this happen??!!




    I never said Brady played well in the 3 post-season losses to the Ravens for example.

    But unlike a moron such as yourself, I recognize that the rest of the team played just as badly, or worse, and don't obsessively blame him like you do.

    And unlike you, I don't slam him for a good/gutsy performances like he had in the last 2 SBs while everybody around him was stinking the place out either.

    Considering that Palin renegotiated the deal bewtween oil companies and Alaske to give Alaskans an honest cut of the deal

    Consididering that good ol joe - graduated at the bottom of his syrcuse law class, then lied about it

    Considering good old joe  p;agerized quotes from a guy in England

    considring good old joe is a Catholic when only it helps him 

    Considering that good old joe's som is really a crook and now feeds at the gov trough

    Considering that  good old joe mis speaks all of time

     He is the Commisioner of the Brady Apologists movement! Ask him the last time that Brady won a SB...he runs away from that one.



    Babe, TFB12, TCal, etc are all closeted gays.  The board would go a lot smoother if they came out.  There is no other explanation for their efforts to deflect when he plays like crap or does things wrong.

    The fact they have never uttered the words "He did not play well today" proves this.

     




    ^ The village imbecile coming unglued. LMAO@him

    He gets bludgeoned with facts that destroy his lies, then he resorts to first attacking a persons religion, then their politics, then calls them gay.

    Wow joe, I guess you just blew that post right up. Good work. LMAO@U

    I didn't recall or look at the details of the 2002 SB joe. I simply thought it was ironic and funny that he used the 2002 year to illustrate the lack of scoring compared to today considering that final score.

    I knew there was a good reason I had you on ignore. Thanks for reminding me of why. Back you go. But thanks for pointing that out, even if it isn't pertinent to the validity of my point.



    haha i honestly thought it was rusty who said that so i was trying to shoot that one down... oh well i'm ignored by babe.. dont see what i did




    You're right. You've been posting good stuff since I did the ignore a while back. I want to see what you have to say. My bad for being too quick with the ignore button.

    And you were right to point out the 2002 points were partly scored by the D. Clarity is a good thing. But I did throw that in at the end just to mock Rusty, it wasn't really part of my point on SB scoring.



    i understand ya, the goodell era and all offense thing is out of hand with russ. guy loves D so much yet says offense is the key. I don't get it...



    What?

    Kid, come on. Are you in college or just working?  Please get to college. Why is this so difficult?

     



    ^ Attacks about religion, then politics, then calling people gay; now he starts in with the education attacks.

    You are an imbecile.

    We have not had 3 postseason losses to the Ravens. 



    I misstated that. My bad. I was editing that and didn't correct it properly after a change.

     

    I really was referring to 3 sub-par games against the Ravens by Brady, not 3 losses.

    I am not calling you gay. You ARE gay and you shouldn;t be ashamed of it. If you came out of the closet, you'd probably be a happier person along with TCal and TFB12 instead of gnashing your teeth in your little passive-aggressive world.

     



    Sorry dumbkoff, I'm not gay. Never did or even considered the gay thing. I understand that you would prefer to believe some of us are like you, but that's just a warped part of your mind at work. Probably the same part that has an "older gent" fetish as evidenced by your obvious crush on BB.

    Although, I am kind of glad that you are gay. Because you will never breed.

    The Rusty manifesto for dummies.

     

    It goes like this......

     

    1) BB is the greatest GM of all-time.

    2) BB is the greatest coach of all-time.

    So, why hasn't he won a SB in 8 years?

     

    He can't say it's because the GM has not added enough good players (see 1).

    He can't say it's because the coach can't get a lot out of the guys he is given (see 2).

     

    So, what's a smelly troll to do?

     

    Why, blame the HOF QB as a playoff choker of course.

     

    And when someone questions why the great coach would keep sticking with this playoff choker.....

    Claim the QB and OC are in cahoots to deviate from the great coach's master plan and pretend the great coach stands helplessly by while they do it.

     

     

    Now you know what makes this smelly little troll tick.

     

     



    BB and Brady can't CHEAT anymore since spygate, that is why there hasn't been any Superbowl wins since 2004.  Yall are a bunch of cheatin' losers!

     



    You sound like an angry little man. 



    Bustchise is very angry, Avvy. So is Babe.  

    We had no business even getting to SB 42 or 46 with Brady's 5 total INTs in those games at home and he's asking why we can't win a SB in the last 7 Brady seasons?

    I think the answer is very clear and sitting right there. No mediocre or bad QBs win SBs.




    Tom Brady has been bad or mediocre for the past seven years?....wow



    In the postseason. Absolutely. Absolutely.

    last 3 home AFC Title games:

    3 TDs, 7 INTs

    SBs? Barely mediocre.

    See?  Facts are fun.




    Russ as always when u trod down this well worn path u leave out a few things: 1. U never give the opposing D any credit or creedence. Silly me I thought the Giants and Ravens - and even the Jets in 2010 - had good tough D that could get after the QB but apparently u don't agree or want to acknowledge that...2. You always say Pats abandoned //didn't establish the run in either SB but somehow that's Brady's fault not the OC or better yet the Head Coach...and 3. BOTH SB Brady left the field with Pats winning and the Giants O facing a long field and limited time and both times ur D blew it but somehow that's Brady's fault too....

    What?

    Kid, come on. Are you in college or just working?  Please get to college. Why is this so difficult?

    Look around the league. Ds will give up points. It's spiking rapidly, year to year.  Holding is never called even if blatant, you can't do anything defensively without flags flying all over, and the refs clearly favor some teams to shape games for ratings purposes.

    It's an age of attrition for Ds. If you hold a team to under 20 points on Sundays, it's an accomplishment. Our D has done that numerous times this year.

    When Brady starts turning it over to give the opponent short fields and we end up going over the 20 point marker, that's not on the defense. That's on the offense. Duh.  

    Get it?

    Brady has been worse in the postseason from 2007-2012 than he has in a more difficult offensiver era under Tagliabue from 2001-2004.

    He shouldn't be worse.  He should be benefitting from the advantages in a bloated offensive era.

     



    Yeah sure. You are like no arm man in a circle jerk contest. And given you have your work boots on, I am assuming you are competing in any other way.

    Rusty's spot-on critique of political belief systems is ironic as the qualities he can't stand in other's politics are similar to how we experience him here. 

    I will spend a moment on narrative and facts. Some arguments are not fact-based but most "fact based" arguments are flawed as they assemble some facts but ignore other relevant facts. 

    The problem is narrative. We also use narrative to understand our world. 

    For example, a narrative can be "Without Gronk, we have no shot at a Super Bowl," or, "Bill Belichick is the greatest coach of all time." 

    Once that narrative gets too rigid, our pride gets attached and we don't accept evidence to the contrary. 

    So it comes down to whether your narrative is flexible enough to allow new facts to change the assumptions underneath the narrative or not. 

    Unfortunately, once you have decided that "Bill Belichick is the greatest coach/GM of all time and anyone who disagrees and believes Brady gets more of the credit is a pink hat", then your narrative impacts your ability to weigh out different evidence. You'll raise up evidence that supports your position (even if it comes from a previously discredited source like Stephen A Smith), and ignore evidence to the contrary. 

    So I don't want to hear anymore BS about "I bring the facts and you don't." 

    The question is: "is your narrative overly rigid, or are you willing to question your own assumptions." If your narrative is rigid you are not going to be any fun to interact with.

     




    Wow, you should be rustys Psychotherapist. You def. sound qualified. Also just to add on, Rusty no longer roots for wins for losses. A win to him is Brady playing horrible or the D playing great. The Wins and losses are meaningless.  The board has turned into offense/defense. The one who feel the need to back brady from the attacks or the ones defending the D and BB. Its crazy cuz Ive always been a Defensive person and BB is my man but since Rusty is always slurping him, its hard to say anything good cuz it looks like overkill so I offer the contrarian viewpoint or I play devils advocate to present the other side. Rusty will have you believe all success points to BB and all failures point to Brady. Thats Ridiculous, yet he takes this stance daily.....smh
