I didn't vote either way on either of your comments.  My guess is that it's the manner in which you stated it and that you were talking to one of our resident experts.  Because there's no way to understand tone and inflection of what you're saying, I'd guess people on here were assuming you were trying to start an argument and/or dismiss what our resident expert was saying.  Just given the amount of time and effort Birm (and all other staff on this site) have put into their contributions, my guess is that, for lack of a better wording, you were downvoted for questioning a website deity in a, what seemed to be, aggressive tone.

It's a game I'm looking forward to.  We're a very young team and I still don't know how we respond to pressure.  My biggest questions are about our shooting percentage and defense.  We've got great shooters on this team but they've been getting wide open looks against smaller and inferior competition.  What happens when we play even talent and height?  What happens when the game is closer and the pressure is there?  Defensively, we have lots of holes and have been surviving because we're just better and taller.  When teams with even height and talent penetrate our zone, they will likely score.  Can we get the defense solid enough to limit the opposition?  I'm not sold on that yet.  Finally, as it relates to defense, is rebounding.  With only two guys low in the zone, how do we rebound against guys with even height?  Really looking forward to this game.

I wish I could read your posts thinking you could be objective with respect to this situation.  It seems that if he threw a pick six but farted seconds beforehand, we would have world peace. Dont get me wrong, I'm all for it.

I have a hard time seeing them get a QB that early. The team still has holes. Id prefer a FA move, but they are already paying a bit.

Been holding onto this one for a while huh?  BTW, there's a game thread already up you could have just come there to gloat.

Really? Even after today you're saying this?  IMO, Hoyer is the lesser evil.

Glad to see Johnny football playing. Maybe now people that wanted to see him play will understand why he wasn't playing. 

Still a young game. Go browns.

Bo Pelini could be the guy a Pitt, pure speculation but it makes sense.  Talk about a coaching carousel.
