It would be interesting to see if TJ Graham can be more productive with a competent QB, something he's never had in Buffalo. But honestly I think he's pretty much the same player as Corey Brown. Speed guy with sub-par hands and not enough polish on the rest of his game to make an all around good receiver.
Lol, what? What plays did he take off? He had one bad drop. No different than the stupid mental mistakes half of our starters were making that game. IIRC he only got like 2-3 carries apart from that, and the line got no push on any of them.
Where the hell did the Cotchery hate come from in this thread again? Didn't we put that to bed just last week? Did everyone start hating on him again because he was never targeted this game or something? Also the notion that he is not sure-handed is utterly ridiculous. Dude has dropped 1 pass in his Panthers career. People just remember it because it would have been a game-winning TD.
So....is "Camp MVP" the kiss of death for our team now? Last year it was Frank Alexander and he missed almost all of the season (granted that was his own fault) and this year KB is gonna miss the WHOLE season. Can we start naming opposing players as our camp MVP?
You're probably seeing tourists who didn't BUY their sports jerseys in Hawaii. Would make sense to see lots of 49ers and Seahawks jerseys in a vacation destination that's closer to the West Coast. Still no idea why Cam is #1 though. Edit: Oops, didn't read the whole thread. Looks like someone else already said this.
Another NC State grad here - I haven't paid a lot of attention to the goings on of this negotiation, so maybe I missed something major, but ultimately I believe the people who think they can glean the true character of a person based on the actions they take during a multi-million dollar contract negotiation are the ones who are blind.
Yes, Russell Wilson's squeaky-clean persona is calculated. I stopped reading articles written about him and interviews with him a long time ago because, to be perfectly honest, they are boring as fug. That's definitely intentional on Russell's part. But I don't doubt for a second the guy's faith is an integral part of his character, as that's how he was all throughout college too, when it looked like he didn't have much of a real chance at an NFL career at all, let alone such a wildly successful one. Russell's faith doesn't necessarily make him good or bad on it's own - I'm not religious so that doesn't register as a pro or a con in my book. And yeah, I'll admit that the amount that he talks about his religion is annoying. But he definitely DOES use a significant portion of his time and resources in a charitable fashion - that's not disputable. Whether or not that's all "fake" doesn't really matter to me, because it's still using his influence in a positive way. So Russell is still a "good" person in my book. I personally think people are just sick of how much praise the guy gets, which is understandable. He's not perfect, or even anywhere close to it, but a lot of the media likes to paint him that way.
