  2. NFL Calendar

    I think this is a lame rule. Why should a team with a new coach be given two weeks head start on the season? The teams that replace their coaches should have to go through the same schedule as everyone else. Is it the good teams fault that they decided to move on from their old coach. New coaches just need to step up their programs in the same time period as ALL teams.
  3. It would be great if he came home!
  4. I hope not. We already have a project (though admittedly not a third round talent, not that that fact matters). I would rather draft a guy with higher upside. Now of course is said third rounder has the upside of a Dak Prescott, then that's different. That doesn't usually happen though. I'd almost rather wait and try to get a backup in FA. Bridgewater would be great if cheap enough.
  5. And DG gone is one less complication...

  7. I do feel if things are close he would choose Carolina. He is 30 now and has made nice chunk of change. Totally different situation than 2016.
  8. How about those Cheating Dookies

    For years the asshat Dookies (and others) gave Carolina Tarheels crap about a Class that was offered to all students which the NCAA said they didn't do anything wrong. Well Dookies about fugging time you answer a real cheating allegation. Seems Wendall Carter is caught up in the big NCAA Scandal that is being investigated by the FBI. Eat Freaking Crow you two faced cheating Bastards. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/college-basketball-is-broken-and-heres-the-only-way-the-ncaa-can-fix-the-sport/
  9. I'm betting you're just going to hand wave & whine, but meh... why not? Another way to put it is that even trained professionals can freeze up &/or make poor decisions & the NRA crowds solution is to put more guns in the schools with lesser trained people. Also, I'm black, my wife is white, & my son easily passes for white. I'm honestly conflicted about calling the police, & owning guns.
  10. Need more specifics than “could be in the mix” Jer bear... text josh make sure he remembers he’s always welcome to hang with @PhillyB at the draft parties. We can’t let the opportunity to get Josh back this early slide, like we did with Pep when he went to GB instead of coming home.
  11. While we are at it.. Mike Mitchell?

    Would have no objection if he came cheap.
  12. I think you're overrating him a little bit. I see him as a legit playmaker, but I'm not sold that he can put a team on his back by consistently going against double-teams---sometimes triple-teams---and will the team to win. I haven't seen that out of Bryant. Now I am not saying that that's even necessary, but I think that adding Bryant with Funchess and a healthy Samuel might just be a legit receiving corps. Still wouldn't stop me from acquiring another receiver though.
  13. While we are at it.. Mike Mitchell?

    You have to admit both brought a swagger to this team. I hated we were still in CAP hell and couldn't keep Mitchell. You noticed one of the best defensive teams in football snatched him up pretty quickly. That says alot about Mitchell. Norman may be a shut down corner or just a gawd damn good system CB. The good thing is. It's our system he is good in. Norman brought swagger to our secondary. Both would really bring a cockiness that our defense needs. Luke brings his energy but it isn't the same as what Mitchell and Norman brought to our defense.
  14. Voth: Time to draft a mid-round QB

    I'd say it is a certainty. A said weeks ago using one of the thurd rounders on a QB is likely.
  15. Poll be honest...

    I work in a very tight group of 40-50 people so maybe an hour or so. I also carpool with my coworker a lot.
  16. I do not expect to see Cam playing at 40 like Brady and Brees---he is only going to be effective (until he gets his accuracy issues under control) when he can run. I see Cam lasting until about 32. Hope I am wrong.
  17. They Redskins will have to pay him 13.5 on March 18. If they can't trade him they will likely release him. If that happens, Carolina could be in the mix.
  18. He sure did-- But until we get some free agents in here, I am not sure we can afford to give up any picks on a backup QB.
  19. Today
  20. They can't. It's a moronic idea in the first place. The Skins have a bad case of buyers remorse and are trying to get out from under that horrible contract. Norman is all mouth which he can't back up. Resigning him would go down as another Hurney mistake in a long line of blunders. But it's all about feelings and goodbye tours so I predict the Norman ball lickers will get their wish.
  21. How would the Panthers be able to afford Josh?
  22. Bulled NFL lineman forces high school to close

    stirs is just a giant pussy that bleeds constantly

  24. Jaguars cut Chris Ivory

    Ivory is a much harder runner than Stewart. He actually punishes defenders rather than absorbing punishment like Stew. Alas, his age makes me pass
  25. Political Compass Quiz

    Were these questions fashioned by Mother Jones or something?
