Nope, never happened. No criticism of AB4 in 2021. There was some fans questioning his play in 2019, after he came back from injury, but never in 2021. AB4 was a rock solid from day 1.

Nope it did.  See below.  My memory is bad but I was right.  If I could find this quicky with a search I'm sure there is more.  I believe some were frustrated when Bighill missed a few tackles /got burnt by speed (early in the year).  Agree he was great all year.

I am concerned about the defence.  If I were out there, I would say the defence sucked.
The DBS didn't tackle well
The front seven were sieves.
Bighill is being blown away,

I wouldn't say that's dumping on a player. He's giving his assessment of our D and how they played.

After no 2020 season and no pre season it took a few games for many players to get up to speed. What's important is that the team improved continuously throughout the season. That was true at the team level and individual player performances.

No complaints here.

There is obviously no difference in PJ's eyes.

We're not allowed to notice a player having a bad play or game without "eating crow" when the player goes on to have a good play or game.

Its really nothing new. Honestly I just think it's funny. Like the second someone gets re-signed or a player/ coach improves then everyone who had any criticism in the past is instantly wrong and must be brought up, because improvement isn't possible

to be fair...yes and I for one was critical of MOS in his early years as coach however over time he has won me over however there are still times when he serves some fair criticism.....however those occurrence have grown less and less because MOS is always studying the game and finding ways to improve.   His players follow his example

I was of the same camp and agree with everything you have said.  I was more critical of Lapo early though and he was way better than I thought he would be.

Good analysis, I think some were a little impatient to allow players to get to game speed

I mentioned that some were critical of Biggie, Pigskin said didn't happen, I proved him wrong with an example. 

It has nothing to do with what you have posted above.  This place is here for those to post what they like and I encourage everyone to post their opinions as long as within the rules.  This place is awesome because of the the variety of experiences they bring and the content they create.  I have never been shy to post my opinion.

Your reference to eating crow has been used by many in a funny way over the years, again nothing to do with what I posted.

I would like to remind the group to stay on topic and discuss Biggie not me.  If you want to make a thread about me in the offside forum go at it.  Lol

I think you will find that in the past I have very supportive of this club and players when we struggle and have often been of the patience and continuity club, which has worked our well for this organization.  I do understand that players have ups and downs and its natural to comment on this as we see it unfold.

I simply stated that Biggie's play was criticized and it was.  A big nothing burger.

Enough with the person attacks.  I simply stated that Biggie's play was criticized and it was.  A big nothing burger.

Wrong. You said some were DUMPING on AB4, not critical of AB4.

Dumping, critical, potatoe,potato, splitting hairs here man.  Lets agree to disagree and move on.  Some on this forum don't get along or don't like what each other post and its best the members try to ignore each other in these situations as much as possible.  These back and forths are very silly and provide no value to the forum. Ok, good for the post count lol.  I suggested it was funny that people were dumping on him.  Lets try to lighten the mood have a laugh and move on.

Biggie had a down year in 2019 (by his standards) and a phenomenal year last year. In 2019 he also had a much bigger SMS hit which opened the door to fair criticism at the time. I think we're all glad that he rebounded so well and he seems to be loving the city and team. Of course it's totally silly to use his 2021 success as some sort of vindication that the 2019 concern and criticism wasn't warranted or  factual (it was) but unfortunately that's what PJ always does. He either doesn't understand the nuance or would just prefer it if he could write "BEAST" in every thread and for that to resonate.

Even he admitted he struggled in 2019, dealing with a pretty nasty hamstring injury. That's a tough one for a LB. And yet, he still shone more often than not, especially later in the season and during the playoffs.

He's such a heart and soul player. Exactly the kind of leader you want.

Lol. "Some on this forum don't like what each other posts". You do see the irony right
