    LOL keep telling yourself that your crying on Twitter actually means anything to players.

    We need Griffin thinking I still hate him, nobody tell him he's playing well.

    It does, and Griffin reads these boards, but you being a part-time poster you wouldn't know that.

    Hate to be the one to bring it up....

    but he almost gave up a TD yesterday by Whiffin' as usual.

    Have no idea what he was trying to do on the sideline when Bowe caught that pass. He ducked his head.... of course slowed up instead of destroying Bowe when he had a clear shot. And missed. Could have had an interception or rocked him.... did neither.

    Luckily Bowe stepped out of bounds.

    Outside of that, he's been... better. He's been more physical.

    Looked to me like he was trying to make a play on the ball and completely committed to it but didn't make it in time. Gotta go for the sure tackle or big hit there.

    He hesitated there and that's when he still gets in trouble. He got caught up between going for the pick or laying a big hit. He just needs to react quicker. I would much rather him going for the pick all the time if he commits to it a 100%. If he would have put his hand us up on that play he would have swatted it.

    He was never as bad as people made him out to be. He was just consistently put in bad situations because we had so many holes on defense. Simply put, we have a bunch of whiny crybabies on this forum who feel the need to target a scapegoat (See Turner this year). The fact of the matter is each player is only good as the team around him. When the team is playing well and setting each other up to make plays, individual players can shine.

    he was TERRIBLE. Constantly completely missing on tackles.

    Which would be... almost ok IF he weren't paid more than Troy Poalamalu at the time.

    Dude was like top 3 paid safety in the NFL and ranked at the very bottom.

    Crybabies? yeah. We hate seeing our team throw away money on an extremely talented player that plays like a girl because he's mentally somewhere else.
