Hyperbole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I know this is a message board intended for people to spout their unabashed opinions (as I am doing now), but in this one man's humble opinion the hyperbole and knee jerk reactions thrown around on this board turn Patsfans.com into a morass of retarded commentary. For example: 3 weeks ago, Brace was a fat ass B-U-S-T, now after one good bull-rush on a passing down against the Rams the fate of our D-line hangs in the balance of his MRI Based on one game, 2nd year rookie Darius Butler has gone from a potential 1A corner to a defensive liability After 3 preseason games in 2010, one of our favorite whipping boys in 2008 and 2009, Terrence Wheatley suddenly "gets it" In one thread I read, Eric Alexander, a special teams ace since 2006, was described as simply not a good football player Mike Wright a solid DE SUCKS because he's not Richard Seymour. TBC SUCKS because he's not the second coming of Demarcus Ware. Its not ok to be good at your position as part of an 11 man defense or offense, you're either awesome, or you suck. Conversely, once a player has reached superstar status (i.e. Brady, Wilfork) it seems they are beyond reproach. IMO this message board would be a whole lot better if people would refrain from extreme black and white opinions based on one game or one play. Instead of Eric Alexander is a terrible football player, how about Eric Alexander is a serviceable special teams player, but not someone I'd like to see getting reps at ILB because...(insert thoughtful comment supporting your argument here based on your observations). Just one man's opinion.
