Now in your world calling a guy that has played for three teams since he came into the league in 2007 a jouneyman is an insult when its actually just what that kind of player is called but of course thats negative in your eyes.
I call things as I see them I have no agenda but just because we have some guy that likes to hit women as our wide receiver Im not going to act like he is a good person.

Also I never once defended Williams . I find it funny when coaches sign elsewhere they all of a sudden are not that good. I remember so many on this board jumping on the McCoy bandwagon then conveinently crucifying him for his comments. At least Im consistent I hated McCoy as a canidate from the beginning. I never once said I wanted Fisher that was our owner that was in love with him. Of the canidates that we interviewed I though Philben and Zimmer were the best canidates, that never changed. I always liked Mularkey as a canidate and he was on our list but was smart enough not to wait around and be the possible second choice when he had a job offer.
I will come out on record and say that if Williams put bounties on players as accused there should be some action by the league its chidish and unprofessional.
Now I was referring to your proclivity to defend someone who's not a fin, and as a counterpoint, throw a fin like Marshall or our new DC under the bus. IMO it's not germane what others on our team may or may not have done or accomplished to the criticisms of that person right or wrong in a vacuum . Irrelevant but it's what you do as if by reflex. How about a discussion in your company where Serviceman A contends that despite what some believe "Joe Blow is NOT the most skilled and dependable infantryman in the company (whether he is or isn't) and Serviceman B replies, "He's proven himself in combat conditions and I'd sure rather have him guarding my back than DLockx" True or not, it's not relevant and you should not have been brought into that conversation to make the other's point by making him look superior by comparison. It is what it is.
When did I throw our new DC under any bus? marshall is a low character guy no matter who he plays for that has been proven over and over again.
The Saints should be much more heavily penalized then the Patriots/Belicheat for Spygate. I cannot think of anything worse in pro sports than intentionally injuring an opponent. It's worse than tanking a game for $$$. The Saints should lose a couple draft picks, Williams should lose his job and be banned from ever working in the NFL again, and anyone else who knew about this or played to injure other players should be severely fined, or given a one year vacation.
Didn't want Fisher when we were searching for a QB, thank god he didn't take the job here. I hope Gregg Williams gets suspended for a year, it will be hard for him to find a job in the NFL. Goodell will come down hard, he doesn't want anything to hurt the NFL's image, especially something like this.
You honestly think that just happens on this board? Thats just the way it is. Every fanbase is the same and every hire was/is the best. But more importantly, where you just waiting for any opportunity to say that? I have no clue how you took what Finfan54 said and turned it into that rant
I mean look how many people act like Coyle was such an awesome hire and basically nobody on this board ever mentioned him before he was hired. Dont get me wrong Im cool with the Coyle hire but on paper the williams hire is a much better hire because Coyle has never been more than a DB coach and thats for a while
