    The defense is truly morphing into SpagFENSE ...

    In a nut shell, what is Spags philosophy on offense:

    1. Aggressively rush the passer from 4 man fronts and relentless blitzes
    2. Press and jam WR's with corners
    3. Never give up the big play, even at the expense of overall yards
    4. Be patient, believe in the system, and turnovers will occur

    And what do we have:

    1. 23 sacks - 6th in NFL
    2. 6.4 YPA against - 5th in NFL, 40 passes defensed - 5th in NFL
    3. Allowed 6 plays of 30+ yards, 2nd best in NFL
    4. 35 total forced turnover opportunities (16 FF, 8 INT, 11 Dropped INT) - 1st in NFL

    And in St. Louis, we have SpagFENSE!

    You mean kinda like the SpagFENSE that stopped the unstoppable Patriots?

    Kind of got me thinking of how the Giants won a Super Bowl with a young QB, tough running game, and with receivers like David Tyree... (ok so I forgot about Plaxico Buress, is he out of jail yet?)

    Keep this defense up and you never know.

    I'm not saying, just saying...

    The only problem with Spagfense is it's really hard to make a sign for.

    I guess you could cut out an S instead of a D?

    It's wonderful to have a good defense. It even got props on the NFL website.

    at the Chelsea we have a tradition of singing the Celery song whilst throwing Celery into the air....at one FA Cup semi-final at Villa Park the stewards reported having to remove nearly 40,000 lumps of Celery from the ground after the game (and that was an away/road game)

    maybe we could start a Spaghetti song and throw Spaghetti into the air in honor of Spags and the D.

    As long as you don't pin any on your coat lapels. Not everyone can pull off a decorative vegetable you know.

    If anyone gets this reference I'll be surprised.

    i just checked that and somehow i got it wrong..Ravens have 37, Rams have 65..still very impressive tho when you consider how much base talent the Ravens have on their D.
    The Rams D also rates higher than the Jets who have 61 (including a TD to boost their figures)

    We are going to need at least the lyrics to the celery song and preferably video evidence of it's existence.

    the lyrics are a bit rude..but if i leave the rude lyrics out and a few *`s in their place.. the *** rhymes with Bum...(Bum is *****,which over here would be classed as a rude word as it`s what we call a woman`s "lady garden" )

    ah the word i said would be classed rude in the U.K but is commonly used to describe a persons bottom in the states..seems to be classed rude on here too..

    Celery,Celery..
    If she don`t ***
    i`ll tickle her bum
    with a lump of Celery.

    *repeat over and over whilst tossing Celery into the air*

    should be on youtube..if you type in Chelsea FC and/or the Celery song..(i`ve tried to upload youtube video`s on here in the past but they have failed and i`ve just been left with a load of text that i don`t understand in it`s place..)

    we are currently banned from doing the full Celery Song/including Celery throwing at Stamford Bridge (our home ground) after Arsenal football supporters complained to the F.A (English footballs version of the NFL Commish..) trying to claim that their safety was at risk from flying Celery....but we still do it outside the ground and at away games,though not at every game anymore,just usually for the big games now...

    Liverpool is like the Oakland of England...

    and that is me playing nice..


    we should get back to the Spags D i guess..as we have somehow managed to derail this thread a bit..

    so then...any ideas for lyrics to this Spaghetti Song?
