  1. Could've been worse. The answer could have already been on the roster.
  2. Pro Personnel Director typically oversees all scouting and recruiting, in addition to other things. He didn't make the actual draft picks for the Giants but he (his group) compiled / presented all the data / recommendations to the GM and coaches. That position typically works with draft consultants too. He brought the same consultants to Carolina that he used in NY.
  3. "But I dare say that the Huddle has succumbed to the calming effect of Gettlemagic, much like a snake charmer subdues a Cobra." Probably the case for most homers. DG has proven to have a good nose for college talent. That was his job for the Giants which ultimately led to his GM position with the Panthers. Star was a no-brainer but Short and Bene were gems. Feel good that we get some quality players this week. As for being the GM and putting together the right formula to win a championship ... jury is still out. Hurney got us to a Superbowl too but even the homers hate him now.
  4. Along the Sidelines - Superbowl Edition

    Great pics as usual Jeremy ... thanks for sharing. Kudos to you and everything that you have done with the huddle. Wasn't too long ago that you were taking pictures from the stands. Now, you are on the sidelines of the SuperBowl. Pretty cool. Lots of great pics but my favorite was Ealy. I went from 'Whooo! He picked it off!' ... to 'just fall down, please don't fumble' in about half-a-second. The INT was great but his run back seemed like slow motion as he kept running with the ball away from his body.
  5. that provides some perspective ... thanks for sharing. Still didn't like the interview but it's Monday and the sun is shining.
  6. What about Charles?

    All of those guys are gone. Hate it for CJ but that contract is just too much. Despite having a top defense last year, DG has some work to do with keeping that group elite. Great news is that we have a solid core for him to build upon.
  7. I hope DG learned something tonight

    Broncs had some key injuries when they got crushed in the Superbowl, including Miller. However, they did make key moves during the offseason to improve their team. Kudos to Elway and the organization for going all in. Probably my first post defending DG but he isn't to blame for the Super Bowl. There's a lot of that to go around ... including the coaching staff. However, DG isn't the demigod of general managers either. He hasn't adequately filled some glaring weaknesses and rolled-the-dice a few times with critical positions. 'Answer is already on the roster' wasn't that long ago. Despite the stinging loss, it's Monday and the start of a new season. Hurney's legacy of bad contracts has been purged from the system and this team was one win from a world championship. Time for DG to fill in the missing pieces and get it done.
  8. Roman Harper

    Harper's best days are behind him and I don't know that Boston is the answer. This has nothing to do with the Super Bowl either. Harper was a liability in pass coverage all year. However, he was a stopgap and the best option that we had. Boston still looks like the same player from college ... for every good play there is one that leaves you scratching your head. Don't like the attitude either. It is a necessary upgrade during the offseason and depending on how the situation with Josh works out, it may be our biggest need on defense ... followed closely by DE.
  9. NFL's Sound FX NFCCG

    Seriously? That makes it even better. Too funny.
  10. NFL's Sound FX NFCCG

    Love these clips .... especially TD and Ricky Proehl. Sunday can't get here soon enough.
  11. Lady Gaga will be performing the national anthem

    Meh ... not excited about Gaga. Nothing will match Whitney Houston's version.
  12. Denver fans have officially pissed me off!

    Lighten up folks ... that's pretty creative. It just folks having fun. Nothing malicious. Besides ... they have to have their fun now because when Sunday evening rolls around, it won't be fun anymore.
  13. Along the Sidelines - NFC Championship Game

    Great job as usual Jeremy. Thanks for sharing. The pic of JR and Cam speaks volumes about this organization. I truly believe JR has a paternal bond with his players in that he genuinely cares, unlike other owners. It's deeper than just 'having played the game' before. I saw it with Smitty and now others.
  14. Victory Monday - Titans Cheerleaders

    Thank you Maw Maw!
  15. Victory Monday - Titans Cheerleaders

    Great work as usual ... both here and Along the Sidelines. Thanks. Please tell me you are spending Thanksgiving in Dallas. Looking forward to Victory Monday and exclusives of Hardy's meltdown when his old team gives them a beat-down.
