Pejorative Miscreant

Topic Players that may be gone after Training Camp aka we have to find someone else to worship or bash thread

Granted Nortman had some god awful punts.  He also had some really good ones and showed flashes of competancy in my mind.  One that comes to mind is the punt at the end of the first falcons game that he put on the one.  That was pretty clutch even though it was completely erased on the next play.

I think this is Fua/Nakamura's last camp in a Panthers uniform.

I don't know why but I just think Pilares sticks and makes some Bigtime plays this year for us.

anybody else here unable to help themselves imagining speed racer saying the thread title?

 

How much you wanna bet many, MANY Huddlers have no idea of which you speak.  I, on the other hand, figured out what Cruncher Bloch was up to with the Mammoth Car long before the $50 mill in gold was revealed.

This is why I'd rather go with 2 QBs on the 53 and stash one on the PS.

 

Agreed.  If you're down to your 3rd string QB, you're already fuged anyway.  No sense in wasting an active roster spot on one.

Gaydosh is PS eligible, so I doubt he's gone.

 

Nortman has a big time leg, but he's just terrible at directional kicking, which if you ask me, is a dumb ass strategy anyways. I'm of the believer that you should encourage punters to out kick their coverage, as long as the hang time is consistent and acceptable i'm putting the onus on the cover guys to get their asses down there quick, fast, and in a hurry.

i look forward to the day when we don't have anyone to make fun of on the roster. gettleman has a good chance of making that happen and ending hurney's traveling circus of CFL roster rejects.

Um, the Giants went and signed David Carr under the Gettlemen era...

Wasn't he head of pro scouting?

i see your point, but a direct comparison isn't accurate. the players we laugh at are ones that were brought in as legit starters that had no business starting in the NFL because marty hurney was a notably awful general manager. david carr was brought in as a backup player with no intention of starting him. a player's rating on the laughingstock scale is based more on his expectations than his actual ability.

 

to illustrate, if a general manager brought in jimmy clausen to start at quarterback, jimmy clausen would be laughed at due to incompetency. if a general manager brought in jimmy clausen as a 3rd option, he wouldn't be laughed at.

What about Gettis' play makes you think he's not going to make it this year? Do you think he cant catch, cant block cant run? What do you think Gettis cant do? . . . Im curious.

Well, I don't think Hurney was all that bad in drafting talent....everyone whiffs. Hurney was dreadful on contracts and managing who to keep or let go.

We can only hope Gettlemen can come close to Hurney on hitting on first rounders. Can we even name a GM that was better in the first round than Hurney in the same span?

His only whiff was Otah and he was dominant when on the field

From the standpoint of this board, Clausen would be the most popular cut.  Not going to hate on the guy....he has handled his situation here with class. In that respect....better than expected.

I love how all your statements hide their intentions hahaha, dont worry CRA I read you loud and clear. This about how you see it?

 

The fact that he was injured is unfortunate but clearly he is part of his failures and the odds are stacked against him. If you get injured youre ability immediately decreases, you arent learning anything, and youre just withering away. You dont grow at all as a person, you dont get better at anything. In fact you become a liability to the team since you are taking up snaps which could have gone to someone more deserving like . . . ?!?? Idk who . . . . You tell me who, CRA :) lol I cant stomach any more of typing that.

 

 

There's just one problem with how of you think about Gettis. He hasnt ever failed.

 

 

 

I guess the fact that you cant really answer my question tells all when you get involved in these discussions. haha oh well, you just love to talk dont you? ghead and tell me how unproductive he will be based on his stats.
