    Seriously. If he was playing Madden, he would pick the same defensive play 40 times, then change it, get a sack, then go back to the first play the entire rest of the game.

    I don't understand, we blitz once and get a sack and then never blitz again.

    I don't know if I would constitute Mario's sack as a blitz. He was pretty much left unblocked.

    Wait for it, wait for it......... Wait for it...... (the quote that either (i) we blitzed 31 times or (ii) we don't blitz because we get burned when we do)

    Wasn't it due to Demeco coming up to the line and taking Mario's man?

    No, but I believe DeMeco blitzed and Joe Thomas picked him up.

    Hold up dawg!! Rick Smith is our GM!!
    You mean fire RICHARD Smith.
    don't get it twisted

    And the fact that 10 posts got submitted before anyone corrected that glaring error kinda irritates me.

    LOL, so edited. Too much studying. I did put "DC" in the title at least.

    *apparently that does not change the external thread title*

    I don't think firing Rick Smith will make our D better. :)

    Firing Richard Smith, on the other hand, could make our D better, our O better, our paraphanelia sell better, our uniforms look better, and our cheerleaders hotter. I think it might even make global warming go away.

    How about when we blitzed the falcons all game long only to get burned on short passes all game long...

    Yeah I'm hoping some staff changes are made.

    I watched the game again, and yes, Williams definitely owes his sack to Ryans. His blitz forced Thomas to leave Williams untouched.

    I was hoping they'd let Richard Smith go last off-season, but then there were those stats that everyone kept saying indicates his D was getting better.

    It's pretty bad when an opposing player (Winslow) calls your defense "vanilla" before you play.
