Ok, I don't really post on here too often. Mostly I just browse but I would like to ask a question that I wonder almost every week whenever I see the various threads on this board- Does anyone ever enjoy a victory on here....ever? For all I know (like I said I don't post on here too much) this may be a question that gets deleted or is not correct in the thread I don't know but it seemed just a good place to ask this as any.
I mean, complaining because they aren't winning the 'right way'? If the you of the years of 2 victories could see that question, I think you would have to smack yourself. I have friends that are Lions fans, Dolphines fans, Browns fans etc. and if I told them that after a 34-0 victory people were whining because it's not 'Montana Football' I think it would baffle them. Of course it baffles me. We are a run team with a power defense. It works. Deal with it. Maybe someday that will change, however don't sap the joy of winning because it wasn't 60 to nothing and all the tds were passes. Also, saying we can't win if our defense isn't dominate...well, duh. Our defense is our crown jewel. Somehow people see that as a negative thing because they are stuck in the 80's. If the defense doesn't play dominate of course it will be much harder to win. The same works for offensive teams as well (please see the colts when Manning was out last year).
So the question I thought is why is it so hard for people to let that go? The fact that we win different now and I think perhaps it is an age thing. I am a much younger fan so I'm use to how the Niners play now, I've only see the 80's in highlights. If you lived it I can see how it's hard to let go. Niners fans are spoiled, bottom line. But having a championship defense and a top tier offense is difficult in this day and age. Would you rather the Niners be a Cam Newton team (i'm seriously asking this, it's an interesting question). Obviously having a good qb but no balance doesn't work. I still believe defenses win championships (seeing the Saints, Packers get kicked in the playoffs helped prove that). Like I said, maybe it's an age thing. These are my thoughts on the matter. Take it or leave it. See you later.
The thread is titled, "What will it take to be a passing team again?" Which is what some people want to discuss. A lot passing has to due with quarterbacking. If you don't like the thread, you don't have to post in it. You can create a separate thread called, "Enjoy the Jets win thread", you can post a hundred smiley faces or whatever in that thread if it makes you and others happy.
People should be able to discuss football in a football fan forum whenever they want.
After a win, after a loss, after a tie, during the game, after the game, before the game, during the off-season; whether we are 16-0 or 0-16.
This is a football forum, not a party, not a family get-together, not a holiday or birthday celebration. Simply typing, "YIPPPEEEE!!!" after a win without discussing what happened in the game, both good and bad, is kind of boring and pointless IMO.
