I believe in Oher, and I think he'll find his rhythm in due time, but I just prefer to have security and options at the position and Chandler is neither of those. If we add a vet with starting experience and some natural talent for the position, I would just feel a lot better about it. That way if Oher can't get it together, we have valid insurance behind him and as has happened in the past, so often, the answer ends up being a guy that was already on the roster and waited his turn.
Posted this in the Saturday thread as I didn't know there was one dedicated to his situation already...
Definitely sucks for Hill... I always have extra incentive to pull for underdog guys, and he had that going for him. I hope it's not as bad as it appeared to be. And while I'm not losing my poo, this is why I wanted to do more at WR in terms of adding speed... If we stacked it like we do other positions, then I wouldn't be as concerned. Even our FO was selling the idea of Hill as our potential speed/size combo guy we were looking to add, and with this injury, it's not looking good. I still hope Byrd pans out but, I was hoping Hill would beat the odds and prove a lot of people wrong (including myself to a degree).

Yeah, I call it for Oher... He never lost him and stayed engaged the entire time. At the very least, on a real play with Cam back there, it gives Cam time to step up or get rid of the ball versus with Bell, he would've been picking himself up off the ground by the end of this play. What stood out to me for some reason though, is man, Oher looks pretty small in that video... Looks much trimmer than I would've expected.
Been pretty underwhelming so far... Looks like an all-star game without the all-stars being played at a pedestrian tempo. These guys are completely walking/jogging up and down the floor, no defense, etc. It's understandable though... It's an exhibition. But it feels like it was cobbled together... Team Africa doesn't even have a true point. Batum was actually just running point. Additionally, they couldn't find enough guys that fit the criteria to be on team Africa, so they have guys like Mbah A Moute and Nazr Mohammed (who are currently FAs without a team) wearing their former team's Jersey.
All that being said... A very cool moment here in the second quarter - completely previously unannounced, Dikembe and Hakeem checked in and The Dream even scored on Vucevic.
Which brings me back to my point from earlier in the thread... I think he wants to play, just on his terms. I think a huge part of it is that he wants to play on the West coast... Regardless, he still is a crybaby bitch. Man up... You're getting paid to play a game, regardless of where. If you can't or won't do it, speak up and say so instead of hiding behind some joke of an old excuse that negatively affects so many more people.
What a worthless crybaby bitch... Honestly, i never really got excited about the waiver claim because I've always thought he was a sensitive bitch whose heart wasn't in the game... And if that's the case, then he should've retired after he left the Dolphins.
That whole Dolphins deal was a farce, imo... He told a story hat would earn public sympathy and wouldn't make him look like a douchey quitter.
Honestly, i wasn't excited about it either because it also seemed to me like he wasn't all that excited that we claimed him. I also suspect part of the Dolphins fiasco was that he was homesick and wanted to go back to the west coast. I think he was unhappy about the Niners waiving him and in his typical pussified ways, he debates, and then St the last minute quits. I hope his career is over.
Good find, Bronn... No doubt crazy and yet, unbelievably intriguing. How would a normal human being completely fly under the radar like that for the entire duration of their life? What takes away any credibility is that if he was any type of secret agent (I'm gonna ignore the alien part lol), then if he died, it never would've became publicized. BUT, that's what makes it so intriguing... That points to him being a regular dude that somehow acquired all of those things - guns, ammo, real estate, multiple cars including the underwater SUV, LOL. Then, as you pointed out, reports now say he has no family, no income, etc. If he was just a schizo, surely, he would've had some of those things going for him to trace his background... Just really crazy...
I'm guessing he was indeed suffering from mental illness... But, maybe was living off of an inheritance, which is why he had no income, and perhaps had changed his name at some point and/or all of his family died, which is why it seems he has no traceable past. Interesting to say the least...
Weird that the article states he was being signed to the "training camp roster," but the Hornets Facebook account just posted a pic of him signing his contract like they have with all of our official FA signings. Why would we do that for a "training camp roster" guy?
