    We have a slew of good players; highly qualified coaches and a **** load of fans who don't have a clue about either.

    Chandler Jones would have had over 20 sacks this year if Golden could have played.

    Yeah I disagree 100%. This roster is terrible, especially WR and OL, and half the team is in street clothes. Snatching 8-8 out of this mess took some ability. We will miss Arians if he leaves.

    And some fans that think they know everything, but really don't know as much as they think they do....A good defense makes adjustments. Ours doesn't.

    We do not have a mediocre defense, come on... we have a great defense but just not an elite one :)

    One only needs to look at the second half of the Seattle Game.

    Defense held them to a field goal attempt when it counted. I suppose you can argue that it should not have come down to that, but it did and it counted. Cards win!

    I agree (especially with the win) but Smug Petey blew it settling for the FG. Perfect ending.

    What adjustments do you want to make after giving up 41 yards in the first half?

    Who are the highly qualified coaches on D and STs? Simply because they have the jobsdoesnt make them highly qualified.

    Or are you Of the belief that fans can never question coaches? And if so, what is the point of a message board besides just a slew of thumbs up emoticons?

    I feel like our defense really became good once Budda got the starting nod(outside the Texans game).
