The first stanza opens in the middle of a battle with “Charge for the guns!” and where it takes place. The no agency of the man who gives the order to attack underlines that the important figures of the poem are the six hundred men of the Light Brigade. The fearlessness of the soldiers appears represented in the second, third and fourth stanzas of the poem, together with the description of the events which took place. The rhetorical question of the second stanza presents the six hundred soldiers as being confident and brave, since any of them “dismay’d", despite knowing they were charging towards their deaths. “Boldly they rode and well” injects another value of the soldiers of the light brigade: valour.

Those longing for being a piece of it or for those deserted while their friends and family battled may have conveyed these ideas along.
Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, and Joe Montana are the three most influential quarterbacks of the last twenty five years of the twentieth century. Kelly’s contributions to modern offenses are incredible, but nothing is more impressive than what he has done off the field with his charities. Moon has helped bring about the age where there is no discrimination against the black quarterback, and Montana helped usher in one of the most successful offensive schemes of all time in the west coast offense, which is still used by many teams today.

The two frontman of each side making it a 2 on 2, one trying to break through the other trying to hold them off as long as they could.
