Yeah I think this team is soft. We have no vocal leadership, no tough veteran lineman, nothing. Nobody who has been through the playoff battles like a Brian Dawkins or Ray Lewis. If there's one thing about Alex that pissed me off in the QB game, he was getting slammed to the turf and he didn't say anything to the OL. Steve would've ripped into those guys. If we had Derrick Deese he would've been pissed. Our OL is a bunch of softies. Rachal is softer than toilet paper, remember the Rams game when Singletary was like "am I going to have to knock Chilo out?!" on the sound FX sidelines thing where he's mic'd up? Staley's a decent player but he doesn't say anything, he's young, and Heitman's a vet and a good player but he's not a mauler or an intense vocal guy. Baas is pretty useless, and Snyder everyone knows is flat out awful.
On defense this team plays like they don't want to hit anyone. I remember watching the game, and we're getting our ass kicked, and everyone on this team is just trying crappy tackles and bouncing off of guys, or the OL is all on the sidelines with their heads down on the bench, or on the field after the play they don't do anything if one of the other team is messing with our guys. Chilo got punched in the neck or whatever in the bears game and he didn't even do anything back. The only guy who has some feistiness in him is TBrown, but he's not smart about it and gets penalties. The only veteran vocal guy we had on defense was Nate and now that he's out we got nothing.
