  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. "ButI dare say that the Huddle has succumbed to the calming effect of Gettlemagic, much like asnake charmer subdues a Cobra." Probably the case for most homers. DG has proven to have a good nose for college talent. Thatwas his jobfor the Giants which ultimately led to his GM position with the Panthers. Star was a no-brainer butShort and Bene were gems. Feel good that we getsomequality players this week. As for being the GM and putting together theright 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 asolid 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 firstpostdefending DG but heisn'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 timeswith criticalpositions. '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, itmay beour 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. MY PSL ACCOUNT GOT PICKED !!!!!!

    Probably so... the guy that I spoke with seemed happy to check. It took him 2 seconds to look it up.
  14. 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.
  15. MY PSL ACCOUNT GOT PICKED !!!!!!

    Me too. Didn't get picked in 2003 either but stillbought tickets and made the trip. Ifanybody is planning to go, spend a few days. The days leading up to the Super Bowl are a blast. If you call the ticket office, press '1' and speak with the customer service folks. They will check your PSL account number to see if you were selected. Otherwise, letters should be coming soon for those that got lucky.
