So this is my first time posting a topic, I have been a member for a while but seldomly even respond to post. I use it more as a source for info than anything else, but I thought this was necessary info to relay. My brother is a volunteer fireman in Pineville and he sent me a text message earlier today asking me to guess who was hanging out at the fire dept. That is damn near a loaded question considering all the people they end up helping. It could have been any local celebrity. To my surprise it was DeAngelo. Apparently one of the firemen that volunteer there did him a favor and fixed his segway for training camp and he ended up hanging out at the fire dept. with them for over an hour. They talked about all kinds of things, not much including football which i understand. I'm sure anyone here that works there ass off all the time doesn't want to talk about there job all day. The one thing that made me think a little more about the situation is the fact that he just showed up to hang out with these guys because one of them did him a favor. Not because he was paid to be there or any other reason. He did it because he felt like he should. We have been ripping this man for over a year about his contract and how he was over paid, but then I hear a story like this and it makes me realize that this man is not only a running back that averages over 5 yards a carry for his NFL carrier but also a hell of a person. We need more players like this and i'm sorry if they come at a slight premium, it is going to be worth it in the locker room.

I have not a single doubt about DW & i am sure he is a real nice guy.

His face "speak" for himself anyway.

Yep, DWill is a good feller.

I expect him to have a monster year.

I never got why anyone would rip him for getting paid. If it was any of us, we'd be laughing all the way to the bank. It would be one thing if he was a d-bag, or a bad team mate, of a problem child off the field, but he's none of those things. If there's anything wrong with the contract he got (and I'm not sure there is - Hurney, to me, seems to do a pretty good job in this regard on the whole) that responsibility rests with the suits. As a a RB, Deangelo has a finite shelf life even with us utilizing a two-back system. All things being equal, I have no problem with the man getting paid.

Its the internet, every second people with zero clue chime in on things they think they are expert in.

JUst curious, Zod - I'm on the air at the radio station I work for at this time of morning. But why would a suave, debonair man about town like you be up before the cock crows? I would've figured you for a 10am with an espresso eye-opeber kind of guy. :)

I'm up at 5am every day working on photography work flows.

There is some actual work behind shooting half naked women for a living.

I think I'm guilty asant are of focusing not on the players as people enough and often get wrapped up in my own little GM fiefdom

Good for him

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
