    Lewis, Armstrong and Steele all had real nice games.

    - Lewis came up big in the early part of the game and got his well deserved INT.

    - Armstrong, who I do get on, came on with a sack, pressure, TFL and blocked punt

    - Steele, real nice comeback game after last week - he needed that for his confidence going forward.

    Its like I always say - Stars are going to star but sometimes its your role players that will determine how far you go.

    100% Agree. I was looking for someone who propped them. Kudos my brother!

    We had stars on those 90's Teams, but I keep saying, it's the role players that win you the Super Bowl.

    Our D-Line rotation, def backs like Washington, Novacek out of nowhere, Alvin Harper a big play, had some journeymen on that best offensive line in history too.

    We re-signed all the stars, but couldn't afford the role players, and that is what killed the dynasty. Even Ken Norton became a 'role player' with the salary cap.

    A lot of our role players this year are FAs next year, need to win it now, and I hope the new coaching staff does the same great job working with the existing GMs on hits with journeymen and later rounds draft picks.

    Don't forget Anthony Brown. He's not a shut down corner but no one said he was.

    He's been MUCH better than given credit for.

    Who's the clown on this board that said he's not a NFL cornerback? I dare you to step forward.

    FA, salary cap, Jimmy leaving.

    It's that simple.

    The cockroaches only come out after a loss or a bad performance. (because everyone has their day)
