I hate posts like these. Saying he’s regressed isn’t hysteria and projrcting that kind of hyperbole on others arguments only serves to derail legit conversation.
I was commenting not on the one post, but within the context of what seems like a series of negative posts by more than one fan this season that are getting tiresome as I read these threads. The persistent and redundant broken record like critiques, calling players out with terms like "mental midgets", etc, its honestly getting to be a bit much so someone has to say something. I don't mind being that guy.
Different fans roll through their fandom in different ways. Some can praise the good and also criticize the players in a tactful way, like you do most of the time. Others vent negativity and rip on the players like they are their inferiors. Still others give the players the benefit of the doubt, having a bit of patience when they are injured or trying to get back on track, and talk about them like a neighbor sitting in the same living room, not talking down to in a manner they would not speak to their face. The Cardinals board tends to be on the negative end of the spectrum, I hope we are not heading in the same direction in this forum which is generally a more pleasant place to hang out.
