Of course it's not always easy to find contributors mid-season. Anyone with a brain understands that reality. But to automatically dismiss the idea that we might be able to find some help outside our roster and PS is equally short sighted. I'm sure our scouts don't have that attitude, so why is it so ridiculous that some posters feel the same? I mean it's not like guys like Philly Brown are setting the world on fire. The chances there is someone on someone else's roster or on the street is pretty damn good.
Every year, the same people spout the same bs. "If anyone out there is better, someone would have signed them already". Then we see a mid-season addition like Remmers come along and we magically get better. I don't know if there is anyone out there that could produce more than Philly Brown, but to dismiss the idea as if it is moronic, especially in a condescending manner, is just flat short sighted. We could definitely stand some help at WR, and hopefully Gettleman and our pro scouts are looking hard. If they have adopted the attitude that there is no point in looking, we're fuged.
That's the point many miss. If the Bucs won today they would have been 2-2. Not exactly the worst of the worst. The same applies had the Texans won, or the Saints. They are bottom tier teams, in part, because we contributed to their poor records. And what if Seattle loses tomorrow? Will they be viewed as the next scrubs on our schedule?
Absolutely. And I've seen a lot of sloppy play around the league. It's not like we are the only team that sometimes win ugly. Maybe we aren't as pretty as the Pats right now, but our wins count just as much as theirs.
What drives me crazy? The irrational Shula bashing in the game day threads. Look, I didn't want the guy hired either. But every play that fails is not his fault. Sometimes the players fug up and sometimes the opposing D makes a good play. Posting "Shula sux" and "fire his ass today" 30 times in a thread is obnoxious as hell, and just makes the poster look like an emotional teenager.
Just make sure you have maybe 8 feet of separation between the Lelands. I had some bad advice and planted them 3 feet apart. Had to take down half of them and they were still too close together once fully grown. Free gardening advice on the Huddle. Next week we can delve into design problems with backyard super colliders.
Cam has been money for the last 2 1/2 years when he has had protection. And while the O-line may still have it's weaknesses, it is giving him better protection since mid-2014. It has just taken a bit longer for outsiders to see what we have known from the beginning. Cam is the real deal in talent, in preparation, and yes, in leadership/attitude as well.
I'm hearing from my sources that, much in the way Hardy became the poster boy for domestic violence, the league intends to use Luke's case as an example of how tough they are regarding concussions. Everything is on the table up to and including forced retirement. Jerry R. must have really pissed someone off.
not really, just trying to raise PU's blood pressure a bit more.
So keeping the conspiracy theories rolling, maybe Ron wants to get Luke on the field as soon as the docs clear him but DG wants to take it slow. Maybe that's what Ron is frustrated/bummed about. He feels like it's out of his control.
