#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.

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...


#2914723 MMQB: Expect Panthers to take Substantial Step Back

Posted by Thorrez on 29 August 2014 - 10:51 AM

We are the perfect pick.

 

1. If we struggle, you are right.

2. If we donĀ“t struggle, you can blame it all on the "improvement" of Cam or Cam's "improved leadership" all while Cam is putting up the same numbers as the last two year (same thing as the by national media invented "sophomore slump" they claim Cam had while actually improving in his second year). 

 

Either way, you can argue that you are right so win win...




#2911865 Is Ron Rivera an NFL Top 10 Coach?

So one and three are convicted cheaters, and number two had half his defense busted for peds.

Am I the only one smelling something?


#2849848 mmqb picks Saints to repeat as div champs

I think it would be much easier to repeat if they would actually have won last year...

Sure, it is a guest writer. Still falls on the editor (king).

Edit: Updated, so I guess we are divisional champs again.

#2827692 Do you have a second team to root for?

Posted by Thorrez on 23 June 2014 - 06:50 AM

I usually follow the hard knocks team. But that is more to continue to follow some players than the team.

No such problem this year :D


#2764556 Who would hurt us the most if they don't have a big year in 2014.

Posted by Thorrez on 07 May 2014 - 02:29 AM

Question: why does it cost the team money when a player retires? Aren't they choosing not to fulfill the remainder of their obligation? It's not they're being cut where the team makes the choice


Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle


Because the money is already payed when the contact was signed. Had the contract been no signing bonus and no guaranteed base salary, there is no dead money when the player retires.

Look at it this way.
Player G, a veteran still playing at pro bowl level at a very important pass protection position want to play one more year only. His market value is $10M.

He signs a $10M one year contract. Cap hit is $10M. He tries after the year. No dead money.

If he instead signs a 5 year vet minimum non guaranteed contact with a $10M signing bonus. He get the $10M in the bank the first year, cap hit is roughly $2.5M ($10M spread on 5 years is $2M a year plus about $500K in salary). He retired after one year.

In both cases G has been payed $10M after one year. But in the second case, the cap his has only been $2.5M. So the remaining difference between money actually payed and cap hit observed hits the cap when the contract is broken (if the player retires or are cut/traded) so the teams cannot avoid cap hit with the second type of contacts.


#2760094 DE Frank Alexander Suspended First 4 Games

Posted by Thorrez on 03 May 2014 - 01:35 AM

I'm not sure of the suspension rule. Does this mean he is a repeat offender? Von Miller was suspended for what, 6 games? Any coincidence this was released a week before the draft?


The extra games was because he tried to bribe his way out of it (he was originally given a full season but it was cut to six games)


#2756474 Why Ryan Shazier is the BPA.

Posted by Thorrez on 30 April 2014 - 01:09 AM

Also one more thing I forget to point out. When your LB runs a 4.4 40 and is faster then all of your DBs you don't need to run a nickel package as much. This guy is a sideline to sideline player and would be an absolute steal at pick 28.


Even with the same straight line speed, it takes longer to change direction at 238 than at 198. This is just physics. So no, you cannot player nickel in this league, with the quick Welker type slot receiver being the latest fashion, at that size.
