  1. and so it begins

    We're living in the golden age of this franchise... we can all say we were here. 
  2. Frank Alexander - Suspended for 1 year

    Doesn't matter if you think it should be legal, by NFL rules it's not and these clowns can't seem to avoid it... no excuse. 
  3. Frank Alexander - Suspended for 1 year

    Goodbye, don't see the Panthers waiting around anymore for this guy to be eligible. I just don't get it, these guys work their whole lives to make it to the NFL but can't stay off the drugs once they get there? 
  4. Jets waive Quentin Coples

    According to Rotoworld:
  5. Tillman Most Likely Out

    I'm perfectly comfortable with Bene moving into Tillman's outside corner spot, in some ways he's an upgrade.  That leaves the question of who fills Bene's role at NB, Colin Jones has done a relatively good job in that role but we saw what can happen when he is forced to go man-to-man with an elite WR in the slot and opponents will scheme to create this matchup going forward.  NB is a tough position, especially in our defensive scheme - not sure anyone on the street can help us at this point. I would vote to use Colin Jones and assign Norman or Bene to shadow the elite receivers to avoid a mismatch. This could force Jones to the "field" with no help, so we would need to shade a safety over his way to assist and that exposes other areas, but I think we can get away with this as long as we get good pressure on the QB. 
  6. What Cowboys Fans Are Saying

    Almost as delusional as the Skins fans last week... good luck.
  7. First look at the Carolina Blue Man group (colour rush)

    I like everything but the blue socks.
  8. Horton suspended 4 games

    Amini is going to IR so we should put in a waiver claim for Coples
  9. Playoff tickets

    Got mine... ALL IN.
  10. Braylon Beam Still Pounding, needs prayers

    Keep Pounding Braylon.
  11. The 3rd consecutive sack was essentially a stunt by Orakpo. Olsen stayed in to help with protection but he was out on the right edge and didn't work back inside quickly enough to pick up Orakpo. 54 is showing blitz so Turner is telling Olsen to help Remmers. DT drew a double team with Kalil/Silatolu and Orakpo blew right by them. 54 drops out just before the snap so Kalil decides to help Silatolu since there are 3 blockers vs. 2 rushers to his right. Olsen saw it but was expecting Kalil to pick it up while still trying to help Remmers, and by the time he realized Kalil wasn't going to get there it was too late. This was another well-designed blitz for our formation that succeeded by dictating pre-snap protection adjustments that would create confusion and our all-pro center's desire to help our backup LG. You can see the last pic below that Amini is turned and beat by his man causing the pocket to collapse. 
  12. 2nd sack by Woodyard (59) was a nicely timed B gap blitz on the right side of the line. 59 was lined up over the B gap on the left side till just before the snap and drifted right so the protection couldn't account for him. At the snap, Stewart was breaking out into the flat on the left side which left us with an empty backfield. The LDE rushed wide to create a gap and the DT (90) did a nice job of sealing Turner off (inside blitzes are like reverse running plays) which left 59 with a free run to our QB. This was a well timed and executed blitz, that took advantage of the playcall - not a fundamental weakness in our protection. 
  13. First sack was a blitz from the slot by a safety (33), Oher recognized the blitz just before the snap and signaled Stewart to help but the wide angle the DT took (running along side the blitzing safety) bunched up Oher/Silatolu and cut Stew off and the Safety got around Oher on the backside, Silatolu broke off to help elsewhere leaving Stewart to block a DL but Stew was already beat. DL forced Cam out of the pocket and the safety cleaned up from behind. Silatolu has always struggled with picking up stunts and this play basically turned into a stunt when Stewart came over to help with the blitzing safety and 3 blockers got jammed up. This was well designed overload blitz that took advantage of our replacement LG who has a lot of bad tape in these situations. He shouldn't leave his HB to take on a DT while he looks for other work (which he never finds).
