  1. The NFL Shield At Midfield added a post in a topic Seahawks Fan Reactions to Norwood...   

    thank you for this.  it's a point that people miss so damn much and it drives me up a wall.
    the seahawks are a great example of this, and it's a fitting thing to mention considering the events of this afternoon.  seattle's entire philosophy when it comes to their wideouts is scheme fit.  people keep making their "well russell wilson does xyz without any real weapons what's cam's excuse?" arguments without understanding that that's not the point - their skill positions are a perfect match for what they want to do on offense.  smart guys who have good hands, run great routes, and help their quarterback out by coming back to the ball when things break down.  their system doesn't need a physical freak that rips the top off defenses to work the way they want it to.
    and honestly, i think if we would have landed norwood in 2014 like proehl et al. wanted, he would have gotten more playing time here just based on the way our depth chart looked.

    well, we're way the hell down near the bottom of the waiver list for one
    if we waited around for denarius moore and, say, one of the 24 teams above us claimed him first, everybody would probably be losing their minds about why we just sat around and didn't do anything like, oh i don't know, trade a draft pick to somebody for a receiver

    there's also an entire freaking roundtable of coaches, scouts, and other FO personnel behind moves like this.  they saw something they liked in the prospect (apparently that carried over from the '14 draft) and decided to make a call.

    gee willikers, it's basically like we just spent another pick on a wideout from The Deepest and Most Talented Wide Receiver Class Ever™ like everyone on the huddle wanted!
    hope you're ready for that ticker tape parade gettleman

    89 would be watching the panthers 2015 season from the couch if you believe what he said about his retirement plans

    chip cut him once and he passed through waivers aka nobody in the entire league wanted him so he was signed back
    this isn't a panthers vs. everybody else thing

    Brady is one of the best quarterbacks around at sensing pressure and knowing when to toss the ball away or bail out of the pocket.  The patriots also run more of a west coast system and get the ball out quickly.  As a team they just don't give up a ton of sacks in general.

    even if they beat us in week 1 all that optimism is on a collision course with the brick wall that is reality
    they still share a division with the colts and a conference with a bunch of better teams.  they're an incredibly long shot for the playoffs let alone fuging super bowl contenders.  what is in the water there i mean damn.

  14. The NFL Shield At Midfield added a post in a topic I am not positive Jameis Winston will survive long enough to face the Panthers   

    i have a theory that every topic on this board, given enough time, will spin off into a hardy, bersin, or steve smith discussion
