Geez, guys. Let it go. It was an UDFA FULL BACK. Odds were never in his favor. He's playing an outmoded position that the roster can already account for. Sure, if we seriously lacked in the blocking department, he might have secured a position based on necessity. But we don't; the drop off isn't that great. Move on. We are trying to make the team better. The fact that y'all are ornery over an UDFA blocking-only fullback getting cut seems like you don't want us to get better.
Otah was super legit . . . for one year. Everyone was pumped over the pick. We needed a RT and got him a year ahead of time. Unfortunately, he got injured and ate too many burgers during the down time.
Only person I'm worried about for the Saints is Cooks. Dude has a crap ton of speed, and he uses it in a variety of positions on the field a la Sproles. That can be contained, though. Atlanta will be better than their preseason indicates [as does ours]. It will come down to us and Atlanta, imo. Bucs . . . lol.
Boykin. Remember the position we put Bersin in last year? He failed miserably when given a primary role. He's good at what he does, to be sure. But Boykin brings everything Bersin does with more speed and athleticism.
The butthurt stems from people getting lost in the moment. It starts out as a pulling for the underdog story, and then snowballs into OMG THIS IS THE BEST PLAYER EVER HE SHOULD PLAY ALL OF OUR SKILL POSITIONS. A lot of people forget that these UDFA are making noise from their relative position, but are still wanting in NFL-caliber skills.
Been thinking about doing some group exercise stuff. There's a local place in Charlotte called Iron Tribe Fitness [they have many locations]. Can't do much olympic style lifting at Gold's. Can't get much cardio in between sets [other than jump rope when no one is there].
The wife recently got a RR email and meant to forward her comments to me, but instead she hit reply and it only sent half of what she wrote so the email went to you and sounded kinda terse. Sorry 'bout that. Anywho, that poo is amazing. Pumped for this season if this is what's in store.
Recently, scalpers have been asking insane prices. Like they think the general public doesn't know the face value of the ticket when it's ON THE TICKET. No, I'm not paying $200 for two $55 tickets in two different sections. They don't even try to hide the fact that they're trying to rip you off. It's hilarious talking to those guys.
