Personally, I'd rather figure out how to beat his ass in a big game like teams have done for the last 8 years.
This has to be the only team forum in the league where this kind of stuff flies.
Can you imagine someone on a Jets forum posting an "I love Manning" thread after he just dismantled their defense?
Takes all kinds.
I give credit to Payaton, he can confuse the hell out of Coyer, that is for sure.
Payaton is a good QB, but not unbeatable.
I looked at our previous foes this year and how our "vaunted" D built up their stats
St. Louis--new offense, they were trying 3 step drops and Bulger later said he wanted to try some 7 step drops like last year...and they are much better on offense
KC--first game as full time starter
NE--still getting hang of no WRs worth a darn, I doubt we'd hold them to 7 points again
Bmore---enough said, their offense stinks
Oakland--they are worse on offense
we play a good defense and the real Coyer D shows up, the inconsitant, looking loss and confused and befuddled D coordinator shows up.
I'm all for the hate on Jake, fact is, until this game, he played bad, but I think the real issue is just how bad our D looked against a real offense, considering most of our recent money was spent on that side
