  1. And that leads only more weight to the level of disappointment. Some of these guys we've listed were over hyped, or frauds, or just nowhere capable of playing the big league game. Disappointing, yes, but not crushing. With Otah, he had it all, and then... gone... what could have been, what could have been.
  2. For best picks, you probably shouldn't forget about Julius Peppers who completely terrorized opposing teams during his years here. Still a decent player, he was phenomenal here and may go down as one of the greatest defensive ends of all time. Now how he left here... well that did sting a bit, but still, you've got to give the man his well-earned due. Worst ever, value-wise would have to be Jeff Otah. Sooooo much potential and never reached.
  3. Good lord....

    Where'd they rank us last year? Meh. Let's see how it plays out.
  4. Former Panther Byron Bell Out for the Season

    Good guy and I hope he recovers fully from it. Tough injury to come back from. Don't want to even think about how much pain that must have been.
  5. Great piece on Mario Addison

    One of the best role players on the team and he really makes the most of his time on the field.
  6. HVAC question

    I would offer the potential buyer a rebate of $250 on the purchase of the house so that they could have the scraping done if they so chose. I would also make sure in no uncertain terms, though, that you have been advised not to do it. You come off being the good guy either way there.
  7. Comfortable with running backs?

    The problem is that we only have one big name running back at the moment, Stewart, and over the years going back to John Fox, we're (as a fanbase) used to having two of those at a time. Most teams, if they are lucky, have one and then a group of no names afterwards. That's where we are right now. That's neither bad, nor good. It's really just the norm. And, if you take a pure moneyball approach, you can only get so much usage out of a running back in today's game. We do great by it, but on most winning teams, the RB position is a bit of an afterthought, and you can just plug someone in and proceed. The game is a changing and RBs are falling in value right now, with the exception of one or two game changing talents. And those guys cost so much that their teams start looking one dimensional.
  8. Bonnet and McGee gone

    At this point, every time we try to figure out what is going on, or get stoked about a new pick up, they go and shuffle the deck again. I think I'm going to just sit back and watch until we get to training camp. Something tells me there will be a few more shuffles yet to come. Someone pass the popcorn.
  9. Yikes! It's like they are snake bit as a team.
  10. Olsen is a pro's pro. What else can you say?

    Two touchdowns, most importantly that bullet he caught in Tennessee, 10 receptions for first downs. Blocked well when sent in. Dickson did okay for us, and better than most TE2s around the league. The guy doesn't get many chances because, honestly, there haven't been many tight ends that have ever played the game better than Olsen. We can cheer for Olsen, and we really should, but man, Dickson went in and did what was asked of him. No reason to slam the guy.
  11. Got a relationship question...

    thefuzz is right. 100% spot on.
  12. You really have a thing for spreadsheets and examining data. The differences are pretty cool in how the rosters are being built, but I think we're also looking at DG being a couple of years ahead of his competition in building those rosters. He's bringing in the most rookies at positions where we'll need to see the effects three to four years from now (like in the TE grouping) or in the regular reshuffle of our DB situation. In all the talk of the loss of Norman, we seem to forget that DG has reshuffled the deck for our defensive backfield each year, giving it a new twist here and there, elevating some younger players, bringing in some old vets. He might be looking for just the right combo to lock in, or he might just see advantages of keeping the costs down and simply putting in new blood each year. Right now, Atlanta and New Orleans are still trying to stop the bleeding, while Tampa Bay is actually progressing in their rebuild. I think the Bucs are going to be our biggest challenger this year and a real rival next. The Saints are mired in contract hell and I just don't see Atlanta as working out... Sure is nice to be sitting here looking at Carolina and thinking we're not just the front runners, but a stable one, too.
  13. 8 CBs

    Eight DBs, two DTs and a rotating MLB. It's going to work.
  14. Got a relationship question...

    Self respect is priceless.
