Not sure what y'all are watching or what y'all expected, but Oher won that. He mirrored Alexander perfectly and didn't give up much ground at all despite getting bent back. I like to see a guy get in a bad spot like that and fight through it. That stuff is gonna happen from time to time and you have to be able to react and adjust. That's what Oher did. All of y'all would be fapping over Oher right now if he didn't get his head snapped back. If refs called that as holding there would be flags littering the field on literally every snap.
Well, he got that wish for the 49ers, but he sucked. When you're a borderline NFL player, you can't be too picky. He may have used up his last NFL chance with this little stunt. I know if I was a team he'd be off my list.
Honestly, the more information that comes out on Martin, the more it looks like Incognito was right. The PC police jumped all over that guy for being a bully, but you could see in those texts that came out that he was truly bewildered why a guy he considered his friend would cook up such a tail. Martin was looking for a way out and found his scapegoat. He did the same thing here. He wanted out and instead of just manning up and saying, "Hey, my heart really isn't in this, I'm done. Best of luck to y'all." he cooks up this back injury deal and just like that, another scapegoat. We're just lucky he didn't cook up another bullshit story that could fall back on us.
I'm excited about the RBs too. You always have to throw in the obligatory "if Stew can stay healthy" line, but Stew as the starter with Fozzy spelling him and CAP getting some action too with the occasional Tolbert bulldozing? Cam is also going to have some carries every game. I like it. I agree with the pound the rock philosophy for this team. Once again, our OL is probably going to be far better at run blocking than pass protecting. The best way to help them protect Cam is to establish the run and live off of play action. You also have to consider that with so many pass heavy offenses in the league right now, more and more defenses have been evolving to defend the pass. They're heavy on pass rushers and coverage guys. Let's find out if they have enough junk in the trunk to stop some smash mouth football. The Seahawks (and Cowboys last year) have been showing that a lot of them don't.
Yep, likely just a camp body which is fine at this point. Camp starts in a week and we needed a body at OT. You can bet we'll be watching the waiver wire as teams trim down to their 53. There's a pretty good chance that there's a backup OT on our final 53 who isn't currently on the roster. I sure hope we aren't putting any eggs in the Nate Chandler basket. That experiment has thoroughly failed.
Quite possibly this: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=A006rQYUwV4 I watching that game with a good buddy who is a HUGE Eagles fan and watching Foster just completely poo all over their entire defense and his reaction to seeing it was absolutely priceless.
A warrant is required to get those records from a carrier provider and NFL can't get a warrant. Then again, a warrant would also be required to force Brady to hand over that phone. He was probably more concerned with it getting stolen, lost, misplaced, etc. If I was him, honestly I probably would've done the same thing. But, theres a really good chamce that SAS is just full of poo here, per usual.
Sorry, I'll check with you next time. But yeah, talking about DeAngelo's entire CAREER could certainly be considered cherry picking.
Early in it was. He wouldn't practice but he'd suit up to play. He "only" missed three games last year. If we can get 10+ games out of Stew I'll consider that a win.
He's missed 20 games in the past 3 seasons. DeAngelo only missed 27 games in 9 seasons. 10 of those were last year. So, through 8 seasons DeAnglo missed fewer games (17) than Stew has in the last three. Of those 17, 10 came in one season so he missed 7 games in 7 combined seasons. People can say what they want about DeAngelo, but the guy was pretty darned durable and suited up on game day.
Yep, it sucks to always have to use the "if Stewart can stay healthy" line, but if he can I think he can put up huge numbers. Unfortunately, Stewart missing some games is virtually inevitable and history indicates that it's likely that he'll miss a decent chunk of them. I wonder if any NFL team in the history of the league has ever gotten worse ROI on two RB contracts than we have out of DeAngelo and Stewart? I wonder what we've spent in dollars per yard? I'm too lazy to look it up and do the math, but I'm sure it would be hideous.
I know the Panthers loved him and I hope he turns out to be the second coming of TD, but man, I was really wanting Preston Smith at #25. I knew the Shaq pick was coming, but I was hoping. Oh well, I hope Shaq is a monster.
3rd and 1... everyone go deep! No checkdown routes! They'll never see it coming!
