  1. Dem Debate - One on One, Bernie vs Hillary

    dammit that is actually genius
  2. Let's talk about Ted Ginn Jr.

    if we don't go sign a new guy, i am very ok with KB-funch-ginn-brown as our squad. pair with olsen and a good offensive line and we're a deadlier offense than we were last year.

    i like how hillary basked in the glow of kissinger admiration and bernie completely called that poo out
  4. Let's talk about Ted Ginn Jr.

    this is my initial thought as well. but doesn't jeffrey field punts? if gettleman feels he can replace deep drops with deep catches and not lose out on a return man, will he pull the trigger?
  5. Gettleman has shown repeatedly throughout his tenure with us that he's more than willing to jettison players who aren't doing their jobs. Gettleman doesn't care much for things like feelings and sentimentality, or if he does he doesn't let it get in the way of running a football operation. Anytime a player's underperformed in some way that cripples the team, and that player is easily replaceable, Gettleman has been willing to let him go. What does this say about Ted Ginn? In a lot of ways I think Ginn is a fan favorite. He was actually one of my favorite players last year, because despite his drops he was a big play kind of guy and gave us that over-the-top threat we'd been missing from the year before. For every overtime drop against the Colts you had a clutch 60-yard touchdown on a third down crossing pattern, and it was the clutch 60 yard touchdown I think most of us remembered. But I can't help but think Gettleman also sees the drops. They cost us in the big game. Even if we tag Norman, Gettleman will have enough cap space to do some damage in free agency. If he views wide receiver as a position that needs to be upgraded (it's actually possible Kelvin Benjamin doesn't return to his rookie form) and goes after someone like Alshon Jeffrey, then suddenly a guy like Ginn becomes expendable. Should Ginn be worried?
  6. Cam Newton and the Burden of History

    it doesn't demand my email address...
  7. he's been awesome all year. dude is the complete package, excellent pass rusher and does the dirty work setting the edge against the run. i expect this gives us an awesome free agency setup. kick the tires on a few FA pass rushers and maybe draft a guy too. IMO the team's biggest improvement next year could come from the pass rush.

  9. Are there any players on The Huddle?

    actually i think i might be one of those people. he grossly misspelled the name of his own restaurant in his post and literally fuged his own keyboard en route to the worst possible advertisement of his enterprise and against my better judgement i pointed this out. i was more impetuous in my younger days than i am now
  10. How dare Cam take over 'our' QB position!

    who is it? did CCS get banned?
  11. Judge chastises racist cop

    CCS?

    his name was brad nortman and he was pretty decent

    while everyone who gets screwed stays stoically silent and not one word gets breathed to anyone who tells a reporter for decades? not likely
  14. How dare Cam take over 'our' QB position!

    it's very simple. in the past, for a black quarterback to succeed he had to (1) not use an african-american dialect; (2) dress like bill murray; and (3) be obnoxiously humble and differential. no matter what he did on the field, he had to do those three things to get a fair shake in the media and among fans. cam newton uses an african-american dialect, dresses like zoolander, and showboats while he's circumstantially performing as the best quarterback in the league and one of the best in history. prejudiced dickholes have lost what little ledge their white-knuckled grasps still had to support them. they're falling headlong into a pit of advancing society and the egalitarian mindset dawning in the rise of millennials, and all they have left is their foundationless rage. every time one of them dies, they're replaced by someone who thinks cam newton is awesome and wants to be like him. so goes society.
  15. New Punter

    nailed it. this is a primo gettles move. nortman is actually one of the better punters in the league, and if swayze is kickin ass on tape then all of a sudden we have the leverage to tell nortman he's not THAT great and shave some more off of whatever potential contract he signs, money that could get shuffled to a pro bowl right tackle or a fine ass defensive end or, say, alshon jeffrey
