  1. Titans 2nd rounder Kevin Dodd has foot surgery

    The 3-4 OLB position is a little different animal. It's really a OLB/DE hybrid position that doesn't have a direct comparison in the 4-3. But, 270+ is still a really big 3-4 OLB. They're usually in the 250-260 range. Basically big for a LB but a little light for a DE.
  2. Titans 2nd rounder Kevin Dodd has foot surgery

    This. Not every 4-3 DE can make the conversion just like not ever 3-4 OLB could. Von Miller is a beast of a 3-4 OLB but he'd get the ball ran down his throat as a 4-3 DE. Dodd and Smith seem to me like guys who are tailor made 4-3 DEs. Both of those dudes are 6'4"+ 270+. That's HUGE for a 3-4 OLB.

    Shocked me when the Redskins did that with Preston Smith last year too. Seems like two prototype 4-3 DEs playing out of position but what do I know.
  4. Cam was the best for sure. No knock on Smitty, he was a huge steal, but taking having the #1 overall pick and taking a franchise QB there is monumentally more important. That's a franchise shifting moment. Peter sucked, but no pick will ever be worse than that asshole WR sitting in prison. Waste of a 1st round pick AND a PR disaster. Tough to get worse than that.
  5. Sports Illustrated ranks their 50 fittest athletes

    Agreed. My issue with the list is that there's no real criteria for it. It's basically just a random list of 50 guys who they think are in great shape even for a pro athlete. Virtually every pro athlete cross trains to a certain extent. That's not a real criteria.
  6. Sports Illustrated ranks their 50 fittest athletes

    Not a chance. I went to HS with a few high level D1 recruits. I was a pretty good athlete myself, certainly above average. Those dudes made me look like I was trying to move in quicksand. There was absolutely nothing I could do to close that genetic gap. It sucks to accept, but it's the truth. Same as the dominant college player who has marginal size and below average athleticism. WFU LB Jon Abbate comes to mind immediately. Great college player. ACC DPOY. But, he was under 6' and couldn't even break the 5 second barrier in the 40. Despite being a very intelligent player and very fundamentally sound, he's just not an NFL player. That takes nothing away from him being a great college player, but he's not playing in the NFL. He hit his ceiling. There was nothing he could do to make up for the fact that he had neither NFL size nor athleticism.

    And genetics. Don't forget genetics. Sure, pro athletes work hard and that shouldn't be downplayed, but the average Joe could work as hard as humanly possible and still never be a pro level athlete. Go slap mom and dad for that one.
  8. Come out of your stretch like a MVP

    Hot yoga is brilliant. You know some yoga studio was tired of paying some high ass electric bills to keep that AC cranking in the summer and then was like, "LOL! I got an idea..."
  9. Hope to see Short retained, but if it means a Suh contract we just can't do that. I'd rather see him elsewhere than see us give a DT that type of hamstringing money. My concern is that if we don't get him locked up this offseason and he has another double digit sack season, someone will be willing to give him Suh money. Then again, Gettleman values DT >>>>> CB and might be willing to keep Short with the tag. Meh, all things considered, way too early to worry about that stuff yet, but it's May and ain't a damn thing else to talk about.

  11. I don't have much respect for her coaches for allowing her to continue.
  12. Sooners reporter talks Williams, Sanchez

    Honestly though, we don't need competition along the OL like we do at WR. I'm just fine with Oher at LT, Kalil at center, and Turner and Norwell at OG. I'd just like to see RT upgraded. If we can't upgrade at RT, then Shula just has to get better at compensating for our weakness there when we face good speed rushers. I would do hope to see some competition for the backup positions though. If Oher gets hurt... oh wee mayne. He may not be an elite LT, but he's the only competent LT we have.
  13. Sooners reporter talks Williams, Sanchez

    He was a 4th round pick for a reason. Great OT prospects aren't available in the mid-rounds, but that doesn't mean they can't become darn good NFL players. It just means they probably have a ceiling that's less than elite. That's okay. With the salary cap, you're never going to be able to afford to field a team of All-Pros at every position. I just hope he can be better than Mike Remmers. We don't need him to be an All-Pro, we just need him to be an upgrade over Mike Remmers who in his own right isn't terrible overall.
  14. Selecting the 2016 Panthers Wide Receivers

    KB/Funch/Ginn - those three are locks IMO The last two spots are anyone's guess, but despite my middling opinion of Philly, I suspect he has an inside track to one of those spots but he won't survive another camp and preseason like he had last year. If he shows hands of stone again, he'll be sent packing especially if the talk about Byrd is legit. I don't think that both Philly and Byrd make the roster - it'll be one or the other IMO. Philly's game experience gives him an edge, but Byrd's speed can't be taught and it'd be nice to have another legit burner on the roster in case something happened to Ginn. Philly is NOT that fast by NFL WR standards; stop typing. My guess for the last two spots is Philly and Garrett. Garrett gets the nod over the rest due to his hands and higher upside than Bersin. We just can't afford to carry Hill. We have enough WRs with hot/cold hands already.
