#2796528 Manziel Not Impressing

Posted by hepcat on 21 May 2014 - 10:25 PM

Manziel could be a good QB in the NFL, but his chances of doing so are greatly, greatly reduced by playing for the Cleveland Browns.  And no poo, a 6 year veteran (Hoyer) is performing better than a rookie?  WOW that is insightful.


I hope the best for the guy - he doesn't deserve to be castrated before he's even played a single game.  This is ridiculous.    

#2794435 Has anyone else been having a terrible year?

Posted by hepcat on 20 May 2014 - 03:37 PM

Everyone has had/is having that shitty year where everything seems to go wrong and there doesn't seem to be any way things can turn around.


I had mine about 10 years ago, and I can tell you that you will make it through it. Right now all those things that have happened seem like shitty luck, but in a few years, you'll see them as necessary changes. The girlfriend thing hurts, but better you find out now than if you'd stayed in it, gotten married and then had to split up joint assets/kids. The band thing sucks as well, but you never know what opportunities are out there that you can pursue now that you've cut ties with them. You're only 5.5 months into 2014, so you can't really write it off as your shittiest year, it could still turn around and net positively for you.


Ten years ago, I was in a bad marriage, just bought a house, both of us lost our jobs within 2-3 months of signing the mortgage, and my mom tells me she has cancer. I didn't think things would ever get better.


Flash forward a decade, I got a better job, my mom has been in remission for over 7 years, I got divorced and remarried and I'm extremely happy with my current life.


Hang in there, seriously.


Thanks for the story.  I really really hope things get better, and I think they will.  But I've gotten to the point where I'm assuming the worst.  It's gotten really bad.  


I just need something good to happen because nothing has.  Absolutely nothing good has happened to me this year.


Edit.  typos

Glad to hear some of you are having some good luck this year.  I'm to the point where if something good happened to me, even a small thing, I'd explode with joy.


Within the first two weeks of 2014, the band I'd spent the past 2 years playing with and devoting a lot of my time with kicked me a several other members out/replaced us.  Then my girlfriend of three years broke up with me, a week before we were supposed to move in together.  The day after the breakup, my dad calls me and says he has cancer (I've been repressing that one hard).  The company I work for is getting sued by the state of Texas so I could soon be losing my job.  Texas cancelled our contract so no matter what the result of the lawsuit I should probably get ready to be on unemployment.  Chalk up the little things like my rent going up for no reason, my car getting run into in the grocery store parking lot with no note (a nice $500 repair bill out of pocket), and countless other small things going wrong...


I just want to hear about the good things happening in other people's lives for a change, so brag away.

I just realized that O-Linemen are like the bass players of football teams.  They go completely unnoticed until they royally fug up, tend to be the ugliest dudes in the band, never get the women, and your team can get by with a mediocre one as long as the other guys around you are really good.

If there's a better medicine for depression than running 3 miles...I haven't found it.

3 miles on the treadmill today, free weights sets and 15 minutes on the mat.  I'm to the point where I don't even get sore anymore, just sweaty and tired.

#2784660 Greg Hardy Arrested

His girlfriend doesn't look like she could do much damage to him...

#2784201 Greg Hardy Arrested

Posted by hepcat on 13 May 2014 - 01:06 PM

Just saw this, so forgive me if anything else has come out... but, it's VERY possible that it could be accusations by an angry/scorned woman, knowing it would potentially ruin things for him. You all do know Floyd Mayweather went to jail for simply snatching a phone out of his woman's hand? Didn't hit her or anything, but that was good enough for assault.

When there is money at stake, thr athlete is put in a vulnerable situation. If this is BS, had Greg just been a washout 6th rounder, no one would even care to press a fake charge on him - again, if that's the case here.


He may have done something in actuality... but, the problem here is interpretation. Doesn't simple assault include "arguing"? Let the facts come out.


I mean you bring up some great points - the details of what exactly happened haven't surfaced yet.  But many, many NFL players and athletes worldwide have signed huge contracts and never dealt with a charge like this.  Why is that?  It was his choice to associate with a woman who would do this to him.  No matter what happened this is a lapse in judgement on Hardy's part, either by who he associates with or what he did.  Time will tell.

#2777688 5th Round - Carolina trades up, selects CB Bene Benwikere in the 5th round.

Posted by hepcat on 10 May 2014 - 02:03 PM

dude this is what i've been saying for months but everybody told me we only had one 7th.


Carolina doesn't have a 7th round pick anymore.  They traded their original one to San Francisco for Colin Jones and just traded away the one they got in the Beason trade for the 5th round pick.  

#2775334 Charles Johnson's Last Year?

Posted by hepcat on 09 May 2014 - 10:08 PM

Frank Alexander is probably getting cut like, tomorrow.  Johnson will probably either have to take a pay cut or be cut next offseason, which might free up money to re-sign Hardy.  Or they'll just let Hardy walk next offseason and Ealy starts.

#2774185 2nd Round Pick Kony Ealy DE

Posted by hepcat on 09 May 2014 - 08:22 PM

Makes all sorts of sense. Great pick. Hardy on a one year deal, Johnson on a massive contract. Alexander might get cut. BPA and insurance pick. Smart move.
