    You're just saying that because you're intimidated at the thought of numerous women showing you their cleavage, aren't you?
  2. Ted Ginn Jr. Running Out of Bounds

    I think it's a typical fan reaction after a painful loss for some to go back and microanalyze things to such a degree that suddenly people start questioning whether Player X is "really as good as we thought he was". The reality: There's no such thing as a perfect player. Everyone has flaws. Even great players make mistakes and even great teams lose games. As to the toughness question, the Patriots long ago began coaching their receivers to basically curl up in a ball / run out of bounds / whatever to avoid taking big hits.  And given that defenders tend to try and hit a receiver as hard as they can, it's actually a pretty smart tactic.
  3. It's not so ridiculous.  Every single player you draft is not going to turn into an all-pro. Teams need depth too. I actually like Boston a lot. I'm not absolutely convinced he's consistent enough to be a full-time starter, but that doesn't mean I'd cut him. He has at the very least shown that he can be a contributor.
  4. what to do....

    I don't generally watch the 2003 game highlights when they come on either. One advantage of being a fan over being a player, a coach or even a beat writer: I don't want to relive the bad memories from that game or any other, I don't have to. Being forced out of necessity to rewatch and analyze film of some of the most heartbreaking moments of my career? Yeah, that would suck.
  5. I mean if a guy's not playing at an All Pro level by the middle of his rookie season, you just gotta cut your losses, right?
  6. Cam shows off his trophies

    Been watching some old school Looney Toons?
  7. Coples is a free agent again. Coples>Horton

    But why has he been a bust? Is he really just not that good, or is has it been poor system fit? I haven't followed him closely enough to know, but that's the question I'd be asking myself if I were gonna take a look at him. To be fair, nobody expected much of Ted Ginn when he signed here either.  
  8. Still kinda iffy on the idea. He has some good traits, but full time?  Eeeehhh...

  10. Other teams early cuts

    Honestly, on the DT front, the first guy I really want to see us sign is Kyle Love.
  11. Sound FX: Superbowl 50

    Pete? Didn't know you were a member here. I would say that I'm sorry for things I've said about you in the past but, well...I'm not.
  12. Sound FX: Superbowl 50

    I'll grant I'm curious, but to be perfectly honest I'm not even sure I want to watch it. Curiosity will probably get the better of me at some point, but not just yet.
  13. what to do....

    I've deleted every single second that I taped of the Super Bowl and the media leading up to it. I haven't turned on NFL Network, ESPN, or even local sports radio since the 7th and I probably won't until there is stuff like the combine, free agency, the draft etc to talk about. Everybody's different, but that's me.
  14. Boldin is a free agent

    Granted that's a pattern, but I do think there's at least something of a case to be made for this one. Guys like Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks we're mainly living off of past glory when people were pushing for them to be Panthers.  Boldin can rightly be said to have had some production in a recent season. And yes, I do think the Panthers kind of like having someone in that "teacher on the field" role.
  15. Cam shows off his trophies

    You'd rather get 'em from the postal service? Heck, they could take up to nine months to deliver one.
