Connor Vernon

maybe but ill remind you welker ran a 4.6.......i think it depends on if vernon is a great route runner and quick in small burst rather than deep long speed.....maybe im wrong though.....

No, you're right. But Welker isn't the type of slot receiver I was referring too when I said "speedy". Welker is the type of slot receiver that sits down in a zone and catches the short passes, but also has the know-how to get open downfield.

But, Welker also is more of a bulky guy that Vernon, and can take on the linerbackers.

(I hate to derail this thread any more than what it is but...) Fair enough, but when ever UNC fans brings up championships from later dates you bring out the "How many of those championships did you see??" so did you watch Sonny Jurgenson play QB in 1956? or George McAfee run the ball in 39? or what about Ace Parker in 36? Because I can go ahead and tell you I didn't get the chance to watch Lawrence Taylor play... Just had to throw a little bit of your criticism your way ;) lol

 

I understand though if I was a Duke fan I'd be irritated with Mr. TD post as well 

 

And for the record I think Vernon will be a great slot guy in the NFL... Brandon Stokley like

Who the fu*k is Sonny Jurgensen?

Duke football had a renaissance last year after barely beating Carolina for the first time in a decade excited a lot of their basketball fans. A lot of their "fans" probably didnt realize they had a FB team until after that game. That was the biggest game in the the past 30 years there. Until the Belk Bowl this year against Cincinnati (lol). How'd that work out? CHOKE

Like I said though, the Duke basketball fans will have their Notre Dame, South Carolina, FSU, or Ohio State football jerseys out by week 4 this year.

How sweet it is!

Yeah I don't ever want to hear you get on UNC fans when they bring up a little nostalgia.

I just looked at the Duke players in the NFL HOF (I've been there twice in the past 4 years BTW) and I've never heard of these guys. Their induction ceremony pictures are in black&white. LOL.

You know who YOU have heard of though?

Lawrence Taylor. LT. Arguably the greatest defensive player in NFL history.

PS: Jeff Saturday (UNC) will be in there in 5 years.

App State is more relevant than Duke in college FB.

I just found it amusing that's all. Mrtd beats his chest about how many pros his almighty heels crank out. Duke, despite when they were inducted, having more hof's made me laugh. Also who don't know Sonny, errbody know sonny.

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
