    A “glue player that holds the team together” Man wth are y’all smoking here!? He’s a 2nd year player that’s got good reviews after OTAs . How does that in a sane world equate to being Rico 2.0? A proven player that has put in work & paid dues . You guys really need to chill with the “my favorite player” love fest . Sure he may start, sure he may produce .. I hope he does but this premature “crowning” shlt is ridiculous .

    Fun until everybody figured them out lol. That Denver game was a beauty though. The thing with Nolan was he was forced to do weird **** because he didn't have the talent to play straight up. I think this roster has proved we have the talent to play straight up: whether we play up to the talent is another matter.
    And you may be right, but he won't lead out the gate by getting crazy. He'll play his defense the way he always had. Maybe if it's clear that's not good enough he'll try to fiddle with it, but by then we won't have anything to lose anyway. I'm not worried.

    That game against the Ain'ts made me so happy that year. One of my fondest memories watching the Falcons. 
    Also half the defenses Eli faces do that to him so I'm not as impressed there. Hahah

    Once in a blue moon, and not turn your hips and run backwards kind of coverages. My point is Nolan got cute all the time: it was his calling card actually. Quinn switches it up sometimes because you have to or else your defense gets predictable. He isn't over here about to make Takk a cover LB'er full time or even 5% of the time.  
     
    Find me a decent DC that has never dropped a DLineman into coverage. There isn't one. Doing it a handful of times a season isn't getting gimmicky. 
    Think about it this way: Sanu gets to the throw the ball a few times a season, but we aren't a gimmicky offense. Tebow's offenses were gimmicky because the weird run-pass trickery was a backbone of the offensive gameplan, not just an occasional thing.

    Just as a PSA, "someday" is actually the correct form to use in this instance. "Someday" is an unspecified time in the future, whereas "some day" means a specific but unspecified time. Basically if you don't follow "some day" with "this/next week" or something similar, "someday" is actually correct. 
    I knew I didn't get that English degree for nothing.

    Both Ryan and Rivers are severely underrated in general. Rivers has had even worse teams around him than Ryan, too.

    People need to watch JJ's bit through to the end. He really makes a great point: when he's asked if the 'wide-open drops' are a factor, Nate says he considered them, but ultimately no because they come in between such huge swaths of production and great catches. This is what our fans (and NFL fans in general) really struggle with: forgetting the few bad plays and seeing all the great ones.

    Yeah, no way around the deficient coaching both have experienced. At least Kyle got Ryan his MVP before ruining everything, I guess.
    I'm surprised Rivers didn't just give up and retire after watching that Ray Rice 30 yard 4'th down. That would have broken me. hahah

    And I would say Ryan has had more recently. It all evens out to the fact both have had some rough luck that lead to them being underappreciated by the talking heads of the NFL.

    Sanu's hands were never a problem. Just a few uniformed people such as yourself read something from a salty Bengals fan and ran with it.
