    Bob Papa laughed at me... About Diehl and Tynes...

    I tried to argue that whether or not Locklear is better than Diehl is irrelavant... despite his or Diehl's shortcomings the line plays better with him in. Bob Papa and Ross Tucker both laughed that i even suggested such a notion and that I was seeing things...

    Then I tried to bring up the fact that guys in my flag football league have the leg to make a 50 yarder... mind you I didn't say the accuracy or they would make it every time... just that I have seen them make it before...

    Again, laughed at... they cited that Tynes was 26 of 29 and is having a probowl year.. I said 'But every time there is a kick over 50 he hits it short...'

    Their response: 'Wind! You can't hit it perfectly everytime.... and then went on to say he wasn't putting everything he had into it... etc...'

    Well why the hell not, this is the NFL... hitting a kick right down the middle 2-3 yards short is ******ed... it can't go over the bar that way... at least if you kill it and it goes wide, the other team can't return it...

    Needless to say, they both were under the impression that Diehl is not only playing well, but he may be our best lineman...

    WHAT DO THE COACHES SEE THAT WE DON'T!?!? WHAT AM I MISSING I FEEL STUPID... I SEE ELI GETTING HIT ON 3 STEP DROPS! I SEE DIEHL BEAT INSIDE, OUTSIDE AND BULLRUSHED... WHAT THE HELL DO I NOT SEE THAT THEY DO!?!? WHAT AM I MISSING!?!? SOMEONE HELP!

    If you get a reasonable answer on the Diehl question please let me know.
    I watched the game again and I'm scratching my head trying to see why they left him in there.

    Most NFL kickers would be able to kick a 50 or even 60 harder. There's a lot more to it than just strength, though.

    Tynes having to attempt goals from so far out is a flow-on effect from the offense's failings. He shouldn't be put in those situations in the first place.

    You are NOT crazy.......Diehl is a scab that needs to be picked off and flung into the trash! Locklear is the man that should be in. Last 2 games Diehl has been nothing but a screen door to the backfield!

    I was also screaming for lockleer, hoping that TC was angry enough to pull DD. what the h$$$ is he waiting for.

    TC was probably the one serving DD all those drinks when he got busted for DUI, thats why he gets to play

    I'm hoping Double D has played his last game because it was tough to watch, I love his heart and his passion for the game; however, it's time to retire..

    Bob Papa works for the team no way he would say anything bad about Diehl

    if you are complaining about Tynes then you are way wrong. He , Weatherford, and DeOssie are the onlt good about this team right now....

    Complain about Diehl all you want, i'd be right next to you. But DO NOT rip on the guy that keeps bailing us out with his leg when our offense keeps on puttering out in the red zone. Tynes is NOT the problem... when it comes to him, I will be right next to Papa laughing in your face...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.
