Kraken?

67 posts in this topic

Why does Greg Hardy and his less than 20 career sacks get to be called the "Kracken" by everyone, when Cam Wake for the Dolphins has been releasing the Kraken for years, racking up 10+ sacks every season since he came to the NFL in 2009. His 15 sacks last year, trail Greg Hardys career numbers by 3. 

 

Hardy is a very good, and very up in coming pass rusher, but lets not get carried away (looking at you mac attack show) in calling Hardy "the kracken"......Cam Wake and his 43 sacks in 4 years says hello.

It was a nickname that someone on an inferior site started and the whole thing's just ballooned.

I don't think this is a question you give rational answers to.

Nah. Hardy has called himself the kraken since college.

That's also your answer OP. He's called the kraken because he's been calling himself that for 7 years.

I don't care what Cam Wake has done or doing, he isn't a Panther. I care what Greg "The Kraken" Hardy and Charles "Big Money" Johnson can do and I hope that they do it twice as good this year.

Hardy said it himself that it was from a comment on a message board.. When did he ever say otherwise?

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
