    You are going to confuse everything if you bring out the facts.

    I am actually excited to see these two guys play and especially how well they have been. Do they need work? Yes but I think they will become two excellent players in the long run.

    Hmmm ... there comes the feeling that if rookies go up against pros and do not perform at pro bowl level ,

    that somehow they are not what we expected in the draft ... on the other hand ...

    lets look not only at the linebacking corp but also the defensive line ...

    well they were there at the beginning of the season ... but this is the NFL ... and now they are not.

    So we must make do with what is left and hire any swinging dick off the waiver wire to cover our ass.

    That gentlemen is called the NFL. NOBODY is walking out 100% intact. Except we may do it better .

    Lets see.

    I know this argument is widely agreed upon anymore, but Tucker deserves a LOT of credit for making in-game adjustments against the Packers to stop the run game when it mattered, AND to make the Lions game competitive, seeing as the Lions have the best or second best offensive line in the league, yet Bostic was able to stop Bush behind the LOS multiple times.

    hmmmm.....

    I don't see it. I even put on my orange colored glasses and reread it again. Nothing. Then I tried wearing my Urlacher jersey and wearing the orange glasses. Still nothing. I couldn't see it.... :)

    I agree Tucker deserves credit for the (injury depleted) defense playing better post-bye and actually getting some key stops. Makes you wonder why those adjustments and stops were notably absent so many times pre-bye when the D wasn't quite so decimated (including early in the season when it was at full or near-full strength). That's what keeps from my giving Mel Tucker a round of applause. Like....where was that BEFORE?
