    Bernard has more big plays the last two weeks than Edmunds ever had in a full season.

    Wax on. Wax off. Wait until he resorts to "the crane" in a game.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    If he shows up big against the Dolphins....I can see myself becoming more favorable to his potential for a while.

    Didn’t watch the game as I was traveling on Sunday, but sounds like he had a really good game. That’s terrific to see.

    It was really much more than terrific. His biggest plays all occurred while the game was still not decided. He essentially kept Washington from making a game of it at all. The whole D played well, but we added a lot as things went off the rails for Washington and he had really put them on the mat with his plays to begin with.

    Edmunds had games where he played better than others, but I donít remember one where he had anywhere close to that kind of impact.

    obviously it takes more than a game to make a player, but it was a great one. Hopefully, he gains confidence and keeps it going

    I really don’t get the constant Edmunds comparisons. Why are we comparing a player we like to a player we think constantly underperformed? It doesn’t really seem to help Bernard by setting that kind of a bar.

    Hopefully he can repeat this week v Miami because we will absolutely need our LB’s to be huge in the passing and running game to slow down that offense.

    What is there not to get? Bernard is replacing Edmunds, the only loss on defense from last year (besides Frazier) and if he can at least provide what Edmunds did, what was a top-5 defense last year won't miss a beat. And if he's better...

    It's making a note of what a difference it can make to have someone who is making those plays.

    If all we’re aiming for is to replace what Edmunds did then we have set our sights FAR too low. If that was the standard then we all should have been rooting for him to be extended.

    Let’s put a sticky on that one and come back in a few weeks to test that narrative.
