No, not at all. Coady is blessed with heart and nothing else. Bruce and Holt have ALL the talent on earth. When Coady doesn't produce, it's no surprise. He's not a high priced free agent, high draft choice, hell, he's not even a starter! He's just a guy "trying" to keep up with the speed of the NFL. When Tory "I disappear during big games" Holt and Issac "14 points for Green Bay" Bruce stink it up it's a lot different. Am I saying get rid of them or put them on the bench? No, but when they have bad games they deserve criticism.
Is this a joke? You insult Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt in the game day chat room, and you "appreciate the effort" of Rich "I'm Afraid to Tackle Anything" Coady?
A week long, humiliating photo is "justified"? I haven't seen any signature pic's of Bulger's 4 interception games, Martz's myriad of bone-headed moves or Bruce's 2 Green Bay touchdown's last week.
which was that if any Ram player, in my opinion, was being unfairly criticized, then I would defend said player.
Please show me where I criticized Little. Moving him to a more prominent position on the defense to utilize his incredible athletic ability and speed. Yeah, I'm ripping him a new one.
I'd say criticism of him is perhaps more fair than, say, criticizing Little for not being able to break through double teams on the defensive line. Just an example.
"Chastising"? I'm sorry, I thought I was pointing out why Coady may not deserve the glossy photo effigy. I thought that would be a little more appreciated than just telling you to take it down(you know, like other posters have done and you didn't take any offense to at all).
yet you think I'm the one who needs a public thread dedicated to chastising me for my signature,
You sure are acting like you've been caught at doing something wrong. I was disagreeing. That's all. No personal attacks can be found.
Or was there some kind of need to scold me publicly for this, I wonder?
That's fine but I don't find it consistent with a guy that's been so vocal about negative posters on this board. If you've had a change of heart so be it. As negative as I'm perceived to be sometimes even I don't want to visually relive a bad loss for the whole week. I would rather see a nice, large photo of Curtis making a good catch.
I'm somewhat charting this team's performances with images. Rams win, they get a good picture. Rams lose, they get a not so flattering one.
Back to the original intent of my thread. I agree that Coady isn't that good. But I don't agree with all the posters who are so focused on his deficiencies as the problem with the defense. Four guys on the d-line, three linebackers and a cornerback or two got beat before Coady was responsible for saving the play.
