    WOW.....Too early to point out that Bulger was scapegoated?

    What wasn't factual about the thread? Was it unfair? How? Why does it get deleted with no explanation?

    I didn't see anything get deleted. Sure you didn't delete it yourself?

    There was a duplicate posted that I deleted.
    I suppose while I was deleting it one of the cracker jack mods could have deleted the other. I'll repost from squeaky memory. We're copacetic.

    It was deleted by another mod, but before this turns into a shitstorm, I think it would be best to take a step back and not post the topic again, as it does nothing but cause bad blood.

    Also, I wouldn't say Bradford is shellshocked.

    yet costs many times more and has a better WR (Lloyd) and defense than did Bulger who was ran out of town for the same play. #10 deserved better. Karma is a bitch.

    What bad blood? Is there a large contingent of Bulger supporters here I don't know about? Of course not. It's just too targeted to reality.....yeah thats it.

    I didn't run him out. Did anyone else here do that? Bulger had a 60M+ contract too, so I'm not sure that Bradford, by virtue of his draft position, should feel remorse for his contract. It was going to be that big no matter what. Other than that, I don't see the point of this thread. I do, however, see a similarity. You're saying Bulger was a victim of circumstance, and didn't deserve to be cut. Yet Spagnuolo is a victim of circumstance(s), and he should be fired. You're right. Karma is a motherfreaker.

    The point of this thread is that Bulger IN HINDSIGHT was given an extremely raw deal and the Rams paid FAR MORE to do so. Draft Suh and this team may well be on the rise. (I concede this is still early....but not shaping up well either.) If you can't protect the QB then drafting one #1 overall makes no sense.....EVER.

    Draft Suh and this team has a better defense. That's all. Bulger had mentally checked out of football during his last season here. He still fought, and he was a decent QB, but he had had enough of the beatings. Bradford didn't get beat up so much last year, did he? So I wouldn't say they couldn't protect him. They can't protect him NOW, but there are a couple of reasons for that. I see some lip service to the reasons behind that, but not much more than that. I do however see Scapegoatism in full effect, but I've developed an immunity to that as well.

    Then get your eyes checked because without adequate protection no QB can thrive including SB. Suh for Robbins.....Rams D line lurches into the top 3. An even better defense absolutely HELPS THE OFFENSE.

    DT's don't lead teams to Super Bowls, QB's do.

    Get your own freakin' eyes checked. I was talking about Scapegoatism in relation to Spagnuolo. And "duh" on the rest of your post. I already said Bradford was better last year when his protection was more than adequate for a rookie QB. You should probably quote the entire post, that way you won't miss anything. And bullcrap on the defense being able to make the offense score more than 7 points a game. That's a fallacy created by those who still lament the 1st round pick in 2010.

    He wouldn't have helped the defense much at all with all the gap/contain, bad linebacker play that we experienced earlier in the season. 50 million dollar DT, no thanks.

    My eyes are fine since I never brought up nor alluded to Spags. Well golly gee whiz X .....how has the Lions offense progressed since Suh joined the team and with that genius Scott Linehan as OC. DOH!

    Are you drunk? Honestly. Because you're not making any sense now. First I brought up the perceived hypocrisy about karma and its relevance to Bulger, and drew a parallel to Spagnuolo. That was me. I brought it up. Then you told me to get my eyes checked when you cut my response in half and went off in another direction with it. Now you're asking me how Suh has helped Linehan? WTF? The Lions are 28th against the rush, and the Rams are last (4 spots lower). The Lions are 5th against the pass and the Rams are 9th (4 spots lower). I don't know. How DID he help Linehan? Better question would be, how did Megatron help Linehan?

    The scapegoat comment I understood to be directed at SB which I do not blame given the lack of protection. The Lions reference is too easy. Odd that it escaped you. They're 7-3.

    I guess Matthew Stafford being healthy this year has nothing to do with their record. Their record, regardless of the defensive stats that X showed you, is because of Suh? Please explain.
