Oh its about get bad in that locker room. How the team does in the final 4 games will tell us a lot about their thoughts on this staff.
kinda agree with dansby on this one.
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
I'm sorry but I agree with Dansby. This is a 7 point game with 8 minutes left and our two starting DE's are on the bench and one of them is an elite pass rusher and imporved run defender in cam wake. And for who shelby? he's a scrub. This the wrong decision by the staff I'm sorry and Philbin saying we were saving their energy is bs. I could see if it was the 1st quarter but come on man this game was huge we needed it and those guys are on the bench I just dont get it man.
Have we been given a reason as to why they werent in?
Seriously, did you have to quote that long as post?
Philbin said he wanted to keep them "fresh"Have we been given a reason as to why they weren't in?
I don't like Dansby and his overrated ass, and I especially don't like his contract (dude is not Ray Lewis), but he's right on this subject. Huge mistake not having Odrick and Wake in the game there.
There's something else going on here. I'm not entirely sure I disagree with it, though.
Fact of the matter is Kevin Coyle is right. On the 8 plays at the end of the game the Patriots were running the ball I think 6 or 7 times with maybe a quick pass thrown in there. Wake wouldn't have been a factor. The miscues were not on Olivier Vernon or Derrick Shelby and Cam Wake wouldn't have factored into those 8 plays even if he was in there.
Jared Odrick is not a guy that has been playing to a level where anyone can just boldly declare that he needs "to be in the game. Period." That's straight up bull ****. Just like it was bull **** how pissed off Karlos Dansby was when Chad OchoCinco got cut. I support his right to speak out but I don't support his having stupid opinions.
