Topics I've Started

We are for real

Defense is still stout. Offense is still conservative, but with better hands at the WR position. and more creative play calling. The special teams is well-coached. Cam is markedly more mature and makes better decisions.  Luke and Thomas Davis have turned it up a notch. Dwan Edwards, who may be the forgotten man, is still solid.  Big Frank and Greg Hardy may not be available, but Addison is not a slouch.


I could go on, but you get the point.  We, and now the rest of the NFL, now know that we are not a team that can be taken lightly under any circumstances this year.

Devilishly pleased this week: My opponent HAD Peterson

And I picked up both Asiata and McKinnon. 



I'm starting Asiata being that MoJo is injured...And, yes, I had already acquired Latavius Murray who is sitting on my bench. 



Fitz & Amaro for Benji and Sankey?

Does this sound reasonable, particularly if you're a little thin at RB?

I guess Fozzy can't be neglected. Sorenson portrays Whitaker's character via th...

His locker is not with the lockers of DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert and the other running backs. His locker is not tucked way in a corner with the offensive linemen, linebackers or kickers.
He’s been with the Panthers less than a month. So what do they make him do – dress in his car?
Ah, there he is. Crammed into what will become the player’s lounge during the season are 20 lockers, and one belongs to Whittaker.
If the locker room is first class, the lounge is coach. When I enter the abyss and ask for Whittaker, the other residents begin to call his name. They act excited. If one of them is recognized for his work, perhaps they all will be.


Sure Tom Soenson's article contains its elements of fluff, but for my money Soerenson did a fine job reflecting Fozzy Whitaker's workmanlike approach to the game, and the opportunity that he has, regardless if he makes the final cut.  And people have taken notice.
Whittaker, 25, grew up in Pearland, Tex., and played at Texas. He talks the way he runs, with little flash and little fanfare. He finds a hole and he slips through it before anybody knows.
“I just want to bring intensity no matter what it is, whether it’s running the ball, catching the ball, playing special teams, making tackles, returning kicks – it doesn’t matter,” Whittaker says in a rush. “What it is, I just want everybody to know that I’m playing 100 percent and it’s to help the team get a win.”



Says Newton: “To see him go out there and compete and running as hard as he did, man, it’s just a person showing resilience and being very optimistic about his opportunity. We had a great talk as an offense (Sunday) morning about what to expect from each other.



Yes, none other than Cam Newton took notice, and Fozzy apparently not only met expectations, but busted them wide open.
Sure he was running mainly against the third string, but he did exactly what he was supposed to do, and more.  I don't necessarily see him getting into the game on Sundays. I mean something would have to be going wrong, but it would be nice to know that we had a role player that will play as hard as Fozzy when his number is called.

Hartsock released.

I wonder why Belichick would sign Hartsock only to cut him a few days later.  He had to know what he was getting. Or, maybe Harsock can't block anymore (which is hard to believe).


Ben Hartsock's maiden voyage to New England was short one.
The Patriots on Thursday announced the release of the 34-year-old tight end they signed just four days ago.
