How in the GD world would you know it is bullshit?
Do you know American women are targeted all the time? Women get lured to all place in the world with hopes of big money and happiness only to become involved in sex trafficking.
I work in the Middle East and many, MANY women from all over the world have falling into the lure of OIL money and a free and easy life. One of our biggest concerns in the business I work in is trafficking in persons. TIPs as we call it. It is real and it happens. Far more than idiots like you realize.
So do us all a favor and STFU on something you obviously know very little about.
Depending on the draft unfolds there is a large possibility that a first round caliber WR won't be there when we choose. There are some WR in the Free Agent Market that intrigue me.
Eric Decker Denver 6'3" 26 ... Big WR .... #1 Free Agent WR (According to NFL.com)
A. Boldin SF 6'!' A bit older but tough as nails and would be a steal from NFC Rival. But he is as old as Smitty 33
Kenny Britt Tenn. 6'3" and only 25. I know injuries have hurt is value but still young enough to make a huge different if healthy.
Jeremy Maclin Philly 6'0" 25. Was solid as a #2 to D. Jackson.
Hakeem Nicks NYG 6'1" 26 injuries has hurt him but probably would get a good discount for his hometown team.
Golden Tate Seattle 5'10" 25 what I like about Tate is every season he has improved. Plus we could get the real reason Jimmy Clausen fell to us.
Anyone of these guys would be an upgrade over LaFell. I think of the 6. Decker is probably my favorite. Only one that isn't either old or coming off injury minus Tate.. Whether DG would come off the money for him would be the big question.
I would love to see him become a Carolina Panther.
We've got to resign Hardy whether we like it or not
I want to keep him but we don't want to break the bank. We have some solid players behind him. Remember we said the same thing about Peppers and Hardy developed into a star. I think we have a few that might be Next Man Up.
biggest reason does not = sole reason. Defense is top five period. Without Cam is another speculation that could result in a better QB at the helm. i mean if we want to play the if game. So that is why i don't see the point as valid.
Why, because your point is that Cam isn't the reason we did well it was our defense but I say that the ball control offense lead by Newton had a lot to do with the statically low defense.
They go hand in hand. Show me a top rated defense where the offense was near the bottom in Time of Possession.
The stats point directly to the D.so why would I want to deny the facts? -The d went to 4 overall while the O did not improve so which changed and which stayed the same.if the D did not improve we may have gone 7-9 again.Now your point would be made if we had a better record before the D improved.Stat wise the O has gone backwards and the D has gone forward. So yes you cannot deny the stats.
I have been listening (reading) to your argument about how great our defense was. And it was an incredible defense. Held teams to a small number of points, yards blah blah blah. Great defense.
Let's move the argument to the offense helping the defense. We were in the top 5 in time of possession meaning. Our defense is on the field less. Less time for offenses to put points up. Less time to accumulate your precious stats. That ball control offense that chewed up clock was done by CAM NEWTON.
Take away his 4th Quarter comebacks and we are 8-8. Take away a couple of calls that went our way defensively you know the Pass Interference non calls against the Patriots and Saints. and the dropped pass to the Tight End in the SF first game. We are 9-7.
Your argument is our defense carried us. Awesome defense but Cam and the offense was just as critical in our 12-4 record as our amazing defense.
I think why so many feel you are trolling is because your steadfast belief that our defense and not Cam was the sole reason for our team going 12-4. Give the defense their credit as it should be but give Cam his due to. Without Cam and our ball control offense we don't go 12-4 and our defense isn't top 5.
I'm with you....but you're comparing what you're calling one of the "greatest catches in NFL history" (which I agree with) to an amazing play by a junior in college. So essentially you're comparing something that's really awesome, to the best thing out there, and saying it's not impressive enough.
What I've always said I like about Landry is that he always seems to go for the ball. That play was a great example. I like the kid because he's tough and goes after it. That's the kind of player I want on my team.
I want the same thing. Give me a player that is going to make a play when we desperately need it. I like LaFell but how many poor, but catchable, passes have hit him in the hands and turned into an interceptions?
I want a WR that can make a play. If he can make plays like this. Count me in on him.
We need WRs and OL. If Cam goes down just call it a season and vie for a high pick in the following draft. We don't need any back up plan.
So in the middle of a tight race to a division title or a wildcard and Cam goes down with a bad ankle sprain that needs a couple of weeks. You want to mail the whole season in?
Thank God you're not running the show.
You bring a QB similar in ability to the one you got under center you just might grab an additional win or two.
NEXT MAN UP....
You don't tank a season because one player goes down. Even if it is your Franchise QB. There are 52 other players that are giving their all to win NOW.
1990 Giants I believe Phil Simms went down and Jeff Hostetler came in and won the Super Bowl for them.
I would love to see a QB like Shaw being a backup. I like Anderson but his skill set is far different then Cam's. The whole game plan changes with Anderson. Someone like Shaw might be able to take the reins and keep running with our game plan.
