Okay Spartacus. Im glad you and Emmitt ( Achilles ) are glad for the bloodbath. Better hope our best pass rusher is at 100% or losing him in a meaningless 4th qtr game will haunt you. I promise it. I will remind you of this for years and years to come. It will be waaaay bigger then Grady-gate. That was grasping at straws. This is premeditated hubris. This is 'knowing' you are doing something stupid.

Sorry, you guys are wrong.We went in to 'win' and we lost our best pass rusher. Dont tell me this will not affect him. Just admit it. He will not be 100% and that is because we had to have big balls...

just unbelievably dumb.

Just for the record, I though Smith’s coaching was incredibly stupid today and was totally against it.

Should he have pulled Abe? Sure. But before you start lighting the torches and sharpening the pitchforks, let's wait and see how serious the injury is. Smith is an idiot for not pulling Abe, but he's a genius for not pulling Kroy, Babs, Spoon, Nicholas, Samuel, DeCoud, Ryan, Gonzo, White, Julio, Clabo, McClure, Baker, Quizz, Matt Bryant, Bosher, etc.

Not sure I get how its "good coaching" when you purposefully tank your ability to win games.

If you disagree with Smith's decision, then fine. If you think his plan was idiotic, then so be it. I'm not saying I agree with his decisions, but the sky is not falling.
