I was really impressed with LaFell last night

13 posts in this topic

LaFell looked pretty good last night at #2.. But did anyone catch that interview on the sidelines?

I've never heard LaFell or any other receiver for that matter speak so respectfully of this team. You can tell his heart is in it. And the amount of respect he and the other guys have for Steve Smith. Even having the balls to call him a future HOF tells you how much they love him. Even Norman mentioned how playing with Steve had made him better.

 

I'm really liking the vibe of this team and I feel like there is a new found confidence and self respect they will be playing with this season.

No I missed it because I was at the game hopefully they will show it again when they replay the game on NFL network. And like yourself I like how this team is going about things you can definitely tell they want it more this year and are looking to prove something.

All i was was the easy touchdown when matched up with a linebacker. Not ready to anoint him yet.

LaFell has always showed spurts of being exceptional. With him the question has always been about consistency.  I don't know whether it has been him, QB decisions, the personnel around him, or a combination of these things that has held him from reaching that higher plane---the place that brings out consistent fear and respect in the opposition---but hopefully all this talk about trust from Cam, as well as the positive reports out of camp, means this is truly the year that LaFell breaks through.

not the point. lafell has progressed steadily since he was drafted to earn a full-time starting position on this team. he's shown the dedication to becoming a better route-runner, ball-handler, and separation-getter. he's also trusted as an excellent blocker.

 

all of these things take heart, desire, and guts. his progression from a raw and flawed mid-round pick makes him the charles johnson of the offense.

I agree on one thing, you can tell this team has a different "personality" than previous teams. They seem to be more focused and have everyone on board with what Rivera is trying to do

Actually he wasn't matched up against a LB, number 27 was covering Lafell, but got picked by Armanti and had to go over the top of the pick.

He wasn't in there for but a few plays. Smith only had once catch for ten yards and I don't see people saying he has lost a step.

Get a grip people.

You have to forgive Chuck. I think LaFell banged his mom and/or girlfriend.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
