Todd Grantham, antidote to happy talk.

From Bulldogs Blog:

… Grantham was in midseason mode when asked what the defense needs to do to stop the run better.

“Tackle the runner,” Grantham said.

    Grantham must be drinking a Guinness

    • Go Dawgs!

      I was with them until they declared NOT drinking six beers at the same time to be “brilliant”.

    Was going to e-mail this to you Senator but couldn’t find your e-mail.

    You know I love it when Grantham gets that snarling, snapping thing going on. Don’t you know the players are hearing the same thing. Grantham’s vocal simplicities endear me to him, because the bottom line is he is right.

    Grantham rocks. But I got some of those “straight from the bottle” Guiness -es and put simply, it doesn’t taste the same. I still poured it into a glass and it was disappointing. Flat and thin, I would say.

      You just cannot replicate the taste of Guinnes on “the auld sod”. It is just never that good again, and that is hard to describe to folks. Now if they just had some decent food to go with it……

        Couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing like a cold pint in a Dublin pub. The exported stuff just isn’t the same. Ah, memories…. it’s time for a return trip.

          Try the Guinness pour at Fado’s in Atlanta. It’s much better than anywhere else I tried and I was told that they brought in the system they use in Ireland. Could be total BS, however it does taste different and better than anywhere else.

    • James Stephenson

      I actually don’t mind the can Guiness, but of course, it is better from the draught at Fados.

      • Toom

        Agreed – when I get the can or the bottle with that little ball in there (or cone) I got no problem with it.

    “You just cannot replicate the taste of Guinnes on “the auld sod”. ”

    Absolutely, the Guinness in Ireland is peerless. As for the food, Guinness counts as a meal, right?

    • Reptillicide

      It absolutely does.

      Whatever you do, don’t eat sammiches from the train stations. I got sick as shit from eating one of those.

      • Normaltown Mike

        Train station food? Piff

        Try a sandwich from the dining car on the Bratislava to Prague Intercity. It’s as good as cardboard dipped in ExLax.

    • Hogbody Spradlin

      Of course Guiness counts as a meal. Haven’t you heard of a six course Irish dinner?

    Man, I’m really ready for our defense to be fearsome again. Really.

    Bobo: “Our issue (at wide receiver) is that there isn’t a lot of depth there.” That is what happens when you don’t over sign.

  8. Skeptic Dawg

    Blah blah blah. Not sure why we give any credence to ANY statement that comes from spring practice. Just come ready to play in 2011.

    • Dawgfan Will

      So are you saying that Grantham’s statement that tackling the runner would help the defense stop the run is incorrect?😉

  9. Brandon

    Grantham is a tough talker who says the right thing, I wish him well but I’m ready to see some tenacity out of his defense otherwise he’ll just end up looking like a defensive coordinator version of Charlie “we’ll never lose to USC again” Weis.

    Reptillicide- What’s so great about the Dublin, Ga pubs?

    Did I tell you about the time I was on the Bratislava to Prague Intercity and ate a prepackaged sandwich? Took the cardboard in the package, melted ExLax on it, rewrapped it and left it in the dining car for the next guy.
