That's what he's doing, discussing football. And sorry, he's right on point. Most of the posts on this forum are about turning our team into a spread offense because ESPN says it's the only way to win. And they don't understand our personnel's strengths and weaknesses. And they want their fantasy team to win. And they want Aaron Rodgers to be our QB. And they want Megatron to be our receiver. And they want. And they want some more.
Why is it that we can have a blowout of 34-0 and people say it's difficult to enjoy that game? Because our QB didn't throw for 300+ yards, even though we rushed for 245. They want highlights and shootouts, not football. They want Madden, not NFL.
But way to stick it to the guy who feels compelled to post his third post on the board. Good job.
Didn't mean to "stick it to him", he might not know that many others have said or implied the same thing, and I felt I had to take a stand.
"Does anyone ever enjoy a victory on here....ever?" That was his main point, and it's what I have a problem with.
The fan forum is for discussing football. Discussing football is not about being positive all the time, or negative all the time. It's about discussing both the negative and positive from all situations. What is wrong with that? Because its time to celebrate? I can't agree with that. If people want to celebrate, they can go make a celebration thread, or they can go to a friends house or they can go to the game.
This whole thing is making me smile, not the least of the fact that I am a girl
Anyway, I will also say I may have to post more because this is incredibly interesting, positive and negative. As I said, I didn't know exactly where to put that comment so that's why I put it there. And yes, it was a post about discussing football (although there was a bit of frustration there, I admit, because I stand by the fact that after a shutout maybe people could enjoy it) the part about football I was trying to get across is why many fans seem upset about winning with a run game and defense as opposed to passing primarily? Most teams or fans I don't think would care how they win. It is not, as some people think, impossible to win with a QB like Smith. Once again, lets look at the Ravens superbowl with Trent Dilfer.
But you are correct, this may have been better in a different thread or 'celebratory' thread as was suggested. I haven't been on here much, I will get the hang of it. But to add to the thread correctly as you wanted- the way the niners will become a passing team is if they completely revamp what they have now. New QB, I want to say new RB's, new WR. The run first, defense based is a team achievement. It won't come just from pulling Smith, the RBs and WRs are fitted into this system as well.
One more thing, if this is about discussing football both negative and positive I don't see how just posting things like 'Bring Jerry Rice back' is too helpful. I'm just saying. It's something I noticed.
