All of this nonsense is below the poster you used to be...Makes no dif to me, but if you keep this up, you are gonna get a label, and once you have a label...Anyway, no offense intended, but your posting style has taken a turn as of late, hope all is well.Carry on...
The thread was not started picking sides on any issue with Monte. The thread was started for info purposes only. I was surprised by what the guy said on the show. Period.

Â Where in my OG post in this topic did I assume the role of an antagonist? Â As falsely accused by Sucher, who has his mind set up on attacking ANYTHING I post with such a label?So I choose to argue the counter, because the guy is not a good poster at all. Â HIs posts are dismal, and lack a lot of insight. Â But aside from that, he gets offended about anything Ipost, and fails to heed his own advice...so isn't he just as immature? Â to me, yup. Â BTW, as related to this topic, I am on Kiffs side, because Sapp is a blowhard. Â Kiff is still here, and has a great track record as the leader of this defense, regardless of the "horses". Â And when do you hear about Kiff pimping himself? Â If Monte is about Monte, where is the proof of this nonsense? Â Methinks Sapp is just a bit of an attention hog who cannot deal with ANYONE biting into the success of the defensive pie that is cooked by Monte FIRST AND FOREMOST.
Hmmmmmmmmm, very, very interesting.You don't have to be an admirer of Gruden to know it was Monte's decision to rid the team of Sapp and Lynch.
Everyone was talking about the Saints.Despite a 6-5 record that positioned New Orleans at the bottom of the NFC South, the Saints had won two games in a row for the first time all season and re-entered the playoff discussion after throttling the Packers the week before.Anatomy of a Play NFL Films' Greg Cosell breaks down how two second-half interceptions by the Buccaneers kept the pass-happy Saints from emerging from Raymond James Stadium as victors. More ... More Anatomy of a Play: New Orleans traveled to Tampa Bay for a Week 13 divisional matchup against possibly the most overlooked 8-3 team in the NFL. For the Buccaneers to win, stopping the league's top-rated passing offense would be crucial.Drew Brees, on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing record, had already torched the Buccaneers defense once this year, but last Sunday Tampa Bay stopped Brees when it counted most.In our Anatomy of a Play segment this week, we break down two of the interceptions Brees threw in the second half against the Buccaneers.Trailing by 10 points late in the third quarter, the Saints moved the ball down the field and were poised to cut into Tampa Bay's lead. When Brees surveyed the field prior to the snap, the Bucs were aligned as if they were in a man-to-man scheme. But once the ball was snapped, the defense wasn't what it seemed.Bucs cornerback Ronde Barber, who had aligned in press-man position pre-snap, retreated into a three-deep zone coverage. The key was his zone turn. Brees anticipated Barber would turn out toward the sideline to cover his man, but instead Barber turned in, toward Brees and the intended receiver, Jeremy Shockey.Barber read Brees and Shockey and saw the seam pass coming. He positioned himself perfectly and made a terrific play on a pass that Brees thought would be a touchdown. Linebacker Cato June intercepted the ball after it was tipped by Barber and made the big play for the Bucs defense.The Saints were able to overcome that interception, tie the game at 20, and gain possession with less than three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.The ball was exactly where New Orleans wanted it, in the hands of Drew Brees.But Brees was fooled again. This time by safety Jermaine Phillips, who initially acted like he was going to drop into deep coverage, but instead played underneath, in a robber coverage.Brees didn't think Phillips would be a factor and hesitated slightly before releasing his pass over the middle to Marques Colston. That allowed Phillips more than enough time to jump the route and intercept the ball. It was one of the Cardinal Sins for a quarterback -- throwing late over the middle -- something Brees rarely does, and it determined the outcome of the game. Matt Bryant's game-winning field goal ensued.These two interceptions were arguably the two most important plays of the game. And while Barber and Phillips both made great plays on the ball, it was the defensive scheme that caused confusion, camouflaged their coverage and put them in position to make the plays.The Bucs have flown under the radar all season, almost as if they were wearing a disguise, and that's exactly how their defense defeated the Saints.
Seems like people are forgetting something. Sapp LOOOVES to be the center of attention. Imvho, the guy can't shut his yap, and may say something he might regret later on. He was a great player and all, but he did JACK on the Raiders. That in itself shows that Kiff had a lot to do with his great playmaking abilities, not to mention had FAITH in him to get the job done.I could see how a Great coach could be hated on AFTER the fact. Some of "Cow-hairs" Steelers mentioned that he worked them too hard. Honestly, Sapp probably could've done just as well elsewhere, but I don't really think so. His work ethic went to crap w/o Kiff&Co. imo.
It's all about him, it's always about him.
