Bingo!!

I don't have a problem when a so called "analyst or broadcaster" has a differing opinion on player. My problem is, when they offer these opinions (especially when they're wildly off), when it's obvious they haven't done the research, have a fundamental understanding or actually watched the player or team.

From that point on, you can just ignore the rest of what they say. This happens, waaaay to often in the business. And that's why you have to take a lot of what these people say with a grain of salt. It happens.

those are meant to be off the cuff statements made by industry people. it's not a newton smear agenda.

he's not even talked about all that much.

it was just one little blurb made by someone talking about kaepernick. nothing more to read into it than that. it's not what people are making it out to be.

I'm waaaaaaay off Newton here. I'm not even talking about him anymore. I already commented on the article and moved on.

I'm talking about many of the people on NFL Network and ESPN--in general (for example), who readily offer their opinion.

Many people take what these people say as the Gospel, when so many are less informed (at least about certain teams, coaches and players) than many here even. However, it's not always their job to know what they're talking about (that's an individual decision). But it is their job to offer an opinion, provide entertainment or create chatter.

Trust me, I'm well aware how the business is (though I appreciate it). ;)

It reminds me of that former 'Aints FB on NFLN who was debating with i think Champ Bailey and was saying that Chip Kelly wouldn't make a good coach because he didn't win a National Championship. The other dude (Champ I think) was like the, "THE DUDE WENT 46-7, after YEARS of mediocrity," and the baldheaded meathead was like, "yea he wont make a good coach though cause his defense was poo and he didn't win a national championship." He was legitimately getting mad. It's pretty much like a drunken conversation someone would have when you are so drunk that you are rambling utter nonsense. It is the NFL network for christ sake.

Yeah, I think you're talking about Heath Evan's.

He's used to play at Auburn, I think to, as well.

Yep, that's the guy, I try not to remember former Saints players names as much as possible. Especially loudmouth fullbacks

Was someone actually arguing that Cam was faster than Squidward?

Edit: I mean, I'm not looking up times but it seems pretty fuging obvious that Cam is slower. Bigger and has a better arm, but definitely slower.

Yup, AceBoogie and Rook35200 were saying so

If he is faster than Cam, it is barely... plus Cam is twice as strong, and much harder to bring down.

Cam opened the door, so that guys like Keapernick(sp) could even get a chance.

Hey I love Cam but cmon man give another player some credits.

We're not arguing who's stronger or harder to bring down. What does that even have to do with speed? Kaep is a much faster player than Cam and his burst, first step is faster.

Now, you go and tell me that Cam is the reason why people opened the door for a player like Kaep. You gotta be JOKIN!!!! Both of them were drafted in the same year bro!!! It's guys like Warren Moon, Steve McNair, Culpepper, and Vick who opened the door for guys like Cam, Kaep, Wilson and RGIII.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
