Some people are just out of their minds with some of the things I've heard said that have absolutely zero -- and I do mean zero -- supporting evidence. This goes for a ton of people, on both sides of what I see is clearly a pointless argument happening between folks here.
Sunday just needs to get here. I want this thread to just go away. I know it's such a long shot, but I pray we somehow exit that game with a win and nothing to complain about...
We could win 56-0, and we will still have a poster whining about some play during the game that could have been done better.
This reminds me of a couple years ago when JTO's ACTUAL picks were better than Smith's "almost" picks. Then when I asked the poster to clarify I was just told.."dood...u jusz don noe football luuzer!" I mean I got what he was trying to say but the same group of people, when judging Alex, say a "pick is a pick."
But they were beautiful spirals right into the hands of defenders, man. Clearly JTO threw a very catchable ball.
It's just insanity around here after every game no matter what the outcome. IF we throw all game and win, it's just cause it's a crappy team. If we run because they can't stop Gore, it's because they don't trust the QB. If a pass is incomplete ever, it's always a horrible play, especially when no one's open and the ball has to be thrown away.
It's a lot to ask someone to look at everything through a lens of impartiality. When you simply don't like a guy, subconsciously you're always going to judge him a little more harshly no matter what the circumstances. It's just the way it goes. People are a little more lenient to a player they pull for or really like.
I love Gore, but in my opinion he played like crap on Sunday. He ran straight into the pile too many times and didn't show good vision on some plays in my opinion. He also had a drop that I felt he should've had. Someone can come up with all sorts of Gorexcuses to try and justify it, but simply put 59 yards on 22 carries is a poor performance. 2.7/carry is not going to cut it. That's rather atrocious, but you won't see 1000 post threads about Gore.
