#3263280 Bene and Luke Make NFL's All-Under 25 Team

Posted by Ship on Yesterday, 08:21 PM

I mean not to take away from Bene, but how is he getting all this air time and hype? I think he is as good as they are hyping him up to be but he's a 5th rounder drafted by the Panthers. I didn't realize such a person could get national attention.

#3261894 #80 - The Miami Vet Impact Player Number, Remember Jeremy Shockey ?

Posted by Ship on 03 March 2015 - 09:47 PM

Would be glad to have Johnson join up for a decent price. However, I think Shockey was more of a familiarity with Chud type of move and a vet body before we knew we could get Olsen.

#3258569 Let's talk Kony Ealy

Posted by Ship on 01 March 2015 - 12:58 PM

Yeah, I think Ealy may progress a little faster than Hardy and CJ. He had a 1st round grade and I think he started to get where he needed to be at the end of the year. If he can do body work and technique this off season he should be the starter. Alexander is a big unknown too. I wish we could have seen more of him last year. If he keeps buckled down he could give us a solid rotation. I think Alexander is at most gonna just be our 3rd DE though. I won't be surprised if we draft another DE early but I have to wonder about strategy with this financially. We don't want too many important d-line guys all coming up for new contracts at the same time. Maybe gettleman doesn't care though, we might always expect to be drafting solid guys with the occasional stud who we keep.

Well to be fair Cam had Gross his first 3 years. Year 4 was the only one with Bell at LT.

#3247557 Justin Coleman, CB Tennessee

Posted by Ship on 20 February 2015 - 12:29 PM

According to WalterFootball we've met with Justin twice and have exchanged phone numbers with him. He's listed as a possible late round pick and could be a "diamond in the rough."


Here's a brief overview of his 4 year career at Tennessee:


Coleman (5­'10", 188) was a 4-year contributor for the Volunteers who broke into the starting lineup as a freshman. He locked down a starting job in 2013 and recorded 59 tackles with three passes broken up. Coleman had 46 tackles, seven breakups, and an interception as a junior. In his senior campaign, he totaled 42 stops with five passes broken up and four interceptions. Coleman went on to have a solid week at the East­West Shrine to earn some consideration as a late­rounder. 


Here is a snippet from his time at the EastWest Shrine Practice:


Another cornerback who played well on Wednesday was Tennessee’s Justin Coleman. Coleman provided the blemish on McBride’s week during the team scrimmage. McBride caught a short cross and as he started to run with the ball, Coleman smacked the ball out for a fumble. Coleman did well in the one-on-ones and showed better on Wednesday than he had earlier in the week. 


Here is a brief video of some nice plays (couldn't find much else):



I know there is at least one Vols fan on this board. Does anyone who has maybe seen any games have any thoughts on Justin as a late-rounder or maybe even a UDFA? 

#3246371 Special Teams Coordinator Bruce DeHaven meets with the press....

Posted by Ship on 19 February 2015 - 11:52 AM

Oh ok so you're one of those guys that talks sh*t then immediately shuts up when proven wrong. You asked for the evidence and I gave it to you what the fug more do you want?


Both the examples you gave have nothing to do with "not wanting to hurt someone's feelings." There was no obvious Nakamura or Byron Bell replacement and in that situation you want experience with the system instead of just throwing a new guy in off the street and hoping he clicks. Guys need time to acclimate and you don't want to ruin young players for no reason. Ron can't just throw out the base of the offense in the middle of the season. Again, it isn't often that you throw out your offensive coordinator mid-season and have a Ravens Super Bowl run. It wasn't gonna happen here. In every instance you gave the team has moved on from the situation by the end of the season. It's pretty obvious Gettleman is done with Bell as a starter and Ron isn't fighting for him either. We have made the changes we've had to make and we've gotten better every year Ron has been here. Soft power is a good thing to have. It's why Ron keeps his team fighting when all hope seems lost. It's why our young core is going to be great. We have a great atmosphere for young guys to come in and develop and contribute and that's not because we have a hardass who throws players out like trash on their first mistake. Go back to youtube commenting on our 2011 defensive highlights and jerk off until you pass out.


It looks like our ST's is gonna have more starters or vets on it, which is good but makes me worry about what that means for the young guys we usually carry on the bottom of the roster. As long as we can keep some fluid space to churn the young guys through who we really like and want to protect and not just rely on keeping them stowed on the practice squad, I think it'll be good.

a handmade card is like a UDFA making the roster and giving you decent production from a position of need.

#3151367 Key block of the game

Posted by Ship on 23 December 2014 - 06:23 PM

i also love philly, especially when he threw mingo off kelvin while trying to help him up. those guys are forming a tight brotherhood at WR and based on their bonding with Cam, we have created a tri-force of throwing for the next decade plus.

#3149275 How bad is Ron Rivera?

Posted by Ship on 22 December 2014 - 12:49 PM

i honestly believe ron will can shula and rodgers on his own at the end of the season. i have to believe that ron knows they have cost us this year. i have to believe that at some point ron is being made aware of all the things we've seen and complained about with the offense-- either from dave or from cam, if not on his own film review. i don't think ron is scared to have a big time offense or an offense that is creative. he helped draft cam newton and he brought in chud. he worked for norv. he isn't afraid of big play offense or razzle dazzle players and schemes. i think the continuity argument for upping shula over an outsider at the time was a better move. cam was younger, ron was moving into a make or break year. he didn't want to re-do half his team going into that year. i think he's in a better position to make changes and exert more control over his staff now that he has his longer deal and cam has continued to grow into a guy who can run the no huddle offense on his own. plus, you dance with the one who brung ya. rodgers and shula had success last year, and ron got his first playoff birth. you don't just send those guys packing after that year.


things have changed this season, but again, there is a lot that we can't control. imagine if we had our o-line playing the way they are right now from the beginning of the season. or CJ at full health. or Cam at full health. or Bene at full health. or DWill injured. we'd be resting our starters next week. however, if we had started norwell and trai and if we even had remmers on the squad for week 1, let alone as the starter, i bet they don't look the way they do now. things take time. it's been a bad luck year for a lot of teams and playoff teams from last year won't be in the dance this year. the fact that we're lucky enough and resilient enough to be in a win and you're in game speaks to the change in our team. it used to be that we'd have our good year and then injuries and things out of our control would put us out of contention. we've weathered those things now. i don't care if it's luck this year or not, i'll take any luck our team can get for anything.


if ron doesn't make those changes or doesn't acknowledge that they made our season that much harder to succeed through, then i'd become more dumbfounded and more skeptical of him. i think especially if we get in the playoffs and potentially win a game this year, we can nab an OC who has big time potential. we're a winner and we have the only true dual threat QB who can survive in this league. and yeah, even if we have a losing record, i consider this season a winner if we go to the playoffs.


also, i think the better talent we have in the booth the better ron's clock management and challenges will look. it seems pretty clear his challenges are mostly based on what the guys upstairs see.

Posted by Ship on 21 December 2014 - 07:54 PM

it'll be interesting to see how we make the transition from Cole and Edwards to some new young guys as part of the DT rotation. maybe not next year but within the next 2 years.

if i had to pick between penalties or putting pressure on the qb, i'll take the penalties... they've given DA time to throw and put good run blocks in

You retards saying Ron has lost the locker room can read the rest of the tweets where CJ and Ealy were pissed at Coach Washington for keeping them out on 3rd down and have since made up.
