    Elephants 1-4 are “B”, “A”, “R”, and “O”, respectively.

    Elephant 5 is “N”.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    I haven’t seen it in awhile, but I think it has something to do with controlling the galaxy and a chick with orange hair?

    Disagree on so many levels.

    The only one getting screwed here is Browning out of millions of dollars and multiple rounds in the draft. This isn't grade school football, the better player should play and that clearly isn't Tuf. He can still be a captain from the sideline.

    Tuf is really good inside the hashes. He just doesn't have the wheels in space to compete at a high level. But inside the hashes in run situations he's very good. Regardless he always gives 100% on every play.

    I don't think anyone thinks any different either but when someone's better they are better. The issue is even when teams come right at us Borland sometimes tries to arm tackle people down.

    He just isn't as good as Browning and that's ok. With that said Browning should be given 70% of the snaps.

    Well said fellas... if the play occurs within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage I want Tuf in there.. else I want Browning
    Tuf is superior anticipating which gap to fill... else it's Browning

    This is one where I'm definitely going to trust the coaches. They've more than shown that they know what the hell they're doing and the system is multiple in terms of schemes and players.

    Can we get a fucking bump here? Tuf had an awesome game on Saturday, happy to see him play like that. Our defense was awfully chippy this week and Tuf was at the forefront. Keep being a leader Tuf, it is not going unnoticed.
     
  13. I’m not sure he had that great of a game. I saw a bunch of missed arm tackles, bad a angles and in pursuit he looks like he runs a 5 forty.

    Unfortunately I'd have to agree. While he didn't get particularly exposed he still wasn't getting off blocks and making tackles. Most of the tackles he makes are when the guy is already wrapped up by a few other players. Not a bad game but nothing not to write home about either.

    Assuming he was making the defensive calls... in conjunction with the way he played... I'd give him a B+... I watched him quite a bit.. I was pleased... except that shitty block on the punt
    and the calls had to more difficult because it looked like 4 LBs
