#3253773 So how do we restructure/extend Charles Johnson?

Posted by Thorrez on 25 February 2015 - 09:01 AM

Is his production worth 20 mil?

Why did we let go of Dwill?

That's not the issue.

1. Do we need him?
2. Can we replace him with what is saved?

Deangelo 1. No.
Johnson 1. Yes, 2. No

Case closed.

#3199818 So Cap numbers and possible cuts

Posted by Thorrez on 12 January 2015 - 05:29 AM

Kalil is gone unless he takes a huge pay cut.

He is set to count over $10M in both 15 and 16.

If we June 1st him we will have about $5M extra power year to sign his replacement.

Finding a replacement FA for $2M should not be to hard, that leaves $3M extra per year to spend elsewhere (read replace bell). If we use a 4th rounder the extra jumps a million.

While Kalil is good and will be missed, the reason centers are not payed premium (unless hurney is involved of course) is that the step down to just a dud is not that big.

#3161771 Adarius Glanton

He looks to have the speed and quickness to be a decent kind of a hybrid LB/NB if the offense no-huddle to stop us from substitute.


My concern is that he might be undersized against a power running team (not that there really are any of those at the moment...).

#3161244 Rise Up?

Best comment from the commentator yesterday: "Imagine if hardy was playing, the Falcons would be on negative yardage"

#3150425 Our game just got bumped to 4:25

That's a 10:25 pm start in Europe, well at least I have Monday off...

#3147542 Jim-meh is pissed

Posted by Thorrez on 21 December 2014 - 05:55 PM

Clausen is loser. Been one his whole life.

I am sure he agrees. Except when he checks his bank, looks at his wife or when he thinks about the fact that he just played himself into a long career as a solid nfl backup.

Other than that, you are probably right.

#3128255 Cam was hit from the back according to eyewitness - Video

Posted by Thorrez on 10 December 2014 - 07:23 AM

Cam was working on his day off, as usual, on his way to work. What a thug who doesn't take the job of being an NFL QB seriously. ~SARCASM

I agree! Doesn't he has some basketball game to attend like a real qb!

#3116603 Mike Remmers - Perfect Pass Blocking Grade

Posted by Thorrez on 03 December 2014 - 04:17 AM

The question becomes, will he become a better starter at RT than Bell was? If so, then we only need a LT for next year and it allows us more options in the draft. Cooper or Collins 1st then BPA and maybe an OT in rounds 2-4. Or we could potentially ignore OT early in the draft and sign the best FA with Hardy's money. Norwell and Turner can be our guards and Kalil is set for now and we could have a solid line, and KB and Cooper starting and Philly as the #3 then we could turn our focus to defense with the other money we have left and in other rounds of the draft and we get a competent offensive coaching staff whether it be HC or OC or both, boom Super Bowl.

What Hardy money? We already have $125M of next year cap acounted for, and that is before the draft class is signed and without Hardy costing a dime.

#3104733 Pie for all

Posted by Thorrez on 25 November 2014 - 01:06 PM

I would like to give some pie to Steve Smith jr and the rest of the Ravens!!

Save a slice for Barnidge as he had the catch that set up the Browns game winning field goal :D

#3083632 How good is a 5 - 2 Defense?

Posted by Thorrez on 12 November 2014 - 09:07 AM

11-0 fg block formation every play. It works sometimes in madden

Madden 98 on the original PS.
Pick Kragen as your active player (between snapper and left guard).
Pump X and forward at the snap.
Worked EVERY time.

#3083500 How good is a 5 - 2 Defense?

Posted by Thorrez on 12 November 2014 - 06:24 AM

Twins right, motion the hb to the left. Ealy is not athletic enough to follow so Luke or TD has to. Run up the gut and read the blocks and you are a cut behind of good block away from a big gain. Or pick on harper and Cason/white trying to cover the twins.

#3034962 We SHOULD win the NFC South

Posted by Thorrez on 21 October 2014 - 11:09 AM

Seattle has the worst ever record making the play off at 7-9. So question is, can we make it with 6-9-1 :-)

#3034208 Colin Jones Ran a 4.3? Huh?

Posted by Thorrez on 21 October 2014 - 01:15 AM

I love Jones's speed but the fact is he missed a lot of tackles in the preseason. Being a gunner is your first priority is to cut off the angles before the returner picks up speed, if you make the tackles or someone else because the extra time you staled the returner is secondary.

At safety the runner already has full speed coming towards you so gunner skills does not have to translate into good safety tackling skills.

#3032278 The Traditional QB Still Rules the League

Posted by Thorrez on 20 October 2014 - 12:33 AM

I've watched the Broncos, Patriots, Colts, etc continue to compete at the top of the league year in and and year out. They have franchise QBs, but what is special about them is their best talent is picking apart defenses with their arm. Sitting back, manipulating DBs, and picking them apart. They also know how to move within the pocket, as to avoid good pass rushers. My biggest fear with Cam is that he will never fully learn how to do this. That he either leans more toward his athletic side, or is pressured by everyone (media and fans alike) to be the QB who throws for 200 and run for 100. I'm tired of this crap because it is the traditional pocket passer that competes year in and year out. Vick had his moments, but his team never competed every year.

I'm being real. I love Cam as much as anyone else. I also know he can throw the ball. Yet I don't think he will ever become a franchise pocket passer. Have yall seen the 360 he did today in the pocket, running slam into a defender for the team's first sack? I just don't know if I want to invest 160 million into one guy, if this is what I should expect for the rest of his career. In any case, I want a traditional guy back there. The primarily athletic QB still hasn't come in and changed the game just yet. I'm open to the idea of trading Cam at the end of the season for a bunch of picks.

The Bengals just sank $120 into (traditional) Andy Dalton! I get your point, but it is not like the options we have are Newton or Manning. It's Newton or very likely 10 years of suffering through the gabberts/hoyers/Anderssons/Glennons of the league.

When your QB is good enough to win with, you pay the man and do not look back.

I know it is October and that you are German. So I think you need to lay off the maas a little ;-)

#2920764 You thought Cason returning was crazy?

Posted by Thorrez on 02 September 2014 - 09:27 AM

I want Tolbert returning punts. Guaranteed at least a few yards of player dragging pickup.

Tolbert burst head to head with gunners at full speed could kill people...
