  1. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Maybe so but he already is having knee issues.  And I would rather Matt have the opportunity to compete for the position.
  2. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Ya Think.....  Seriously he was such a high valued OT coming out of college.   He wouldn't be the first OT to be a bust.   Sometimes those around you make you worse than what you actually are.  His brother is a Pro Bowler and we have one of the best O-Line Coaches in the Game along with Ray Brown.   That would be a definite upgrade for Matt.  Worst thing he can say is NO. You know the pedigree of being from a good family is there.    
  3. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Long is too "Long" in the tooth for me.   Matt is 25 or 26? 
  4. Got a Twitter alert this morning about Eric Weddle

    Not against it as long as he has the speed to do it. 
  5. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    You can look at it that way or you can look at it that Big Bro knows Lil Bro better than anyone.  Look at what we did with Oher.  Why couldn't the same thing happen with M. Kalil.  At minimum I hope we bring him in.
  6. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Would be very interesting to see if Carolina would want to sign him.  Team him up with big brother.  Could move him to RT.  Didn't Remmers come from the Viking stable.   Maybe their O-line coach sucks and he would do much better under Matsko. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2016/02/25-big-names-who-could-end-up-nfl-cap-casualties-this-offseason-contracts-robert-griffin-iii-mario-williams#
  7. Let's talk about Ted Ginn Jr.

    As a commentator mentioned about Ginn.  What he does to a defense is hard to find.  His explosiveness is amazing.  The drops are going to occur.  You have to take the bad with the good.  10 TDs.   The drops are a concern and he needs to keep getting better at catching the ball first but his speed is too much to overlook.   I look forward to him being on the field with Funchess and KB at the same time.  We had teams focusing on him and Cam still got him the ball.  Imagine when defenses have to account for KB.  Can't double every one. That said, I think Brown has the capability to stretch a defense too and is a much better route runner.
  8. Gettleman's next find

     Mitchell was his first.....I loved his style of play.  I have no doubt he'll find one.   It is how you build a winning roster.  First round picks are probably the easier.  It is the latter rounds and UDFAs and dollar store FA that make the biggest difference.
  9. Gettleman's next find

    Ginn, Coleman, Mitchell are players he has brought in and they had successful seasons. I don't follow other teams rosters but some of you do.   Who is that player buried on a teams depth chart that would fit the Panthers?  The Dollar Store Dave Bargain that pays big dividends.  
  10. Archie Manning Defends Cam

    Like Rivera says....everyone wants to win.... I want those guys that hate to lose.   I can't stand it and I was never a professional athlete I can only imagine all the work they put in and get to the top only to lose.
  11. New Punter

    Nortman's job to lose not to say he won't.  All jobs with exception of a few are up for grabs.

    Nothing more than compeititon
  13. Well, being that we're already hated .. Sign Hardy

    Forcefully agreed.  Please don't make it sound as if that was HIS CHOICE, it wasn't.  They should have let him play until his court date.  I find it ironic that it was moved to after the season. While I agree DV is not something anyone can condone.  It wasn't an Angel that instigated the confrontation.  Nitpicking on the sideline antics.  I believe no one on Dallas made a deal about it.  Only the uninformed.  
  14. Well, being that we're already hated .. Sign Hardy

    Where did you get this?  Hardy wanted to play.  It wasn't him.  It was fugging Goodell and his voluntary list.  They took a full season and punished him and Carolina.  While I agree we won't bring him back.  Personally I wouldn't mind.  Those of us were all supportive of him when he was here.  I always find it funny that the mystery video surfaces right about the time he is ready to get back on the field.  Kraken was a good egg for us.  He got caught up in something stupid but nothing since then, at least to my knowledge. We have given Frank Alexander, a player with 1/4 the talent of Kraken, two or three chances. At the right price..... I would take him back and wouldn't blink an eye about him being a distraction in the locker room. But I am not in charge therefore it probably won't happen.
  15. 2016 Top NFL free agents - running backs

    This is the type of stuff Dave Gettleman and staff look at.  Guys that will fit our scheme.  They find us guys that may not be super productive at their last stop but have that type of play that will help our unique system.
