#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

Posted by Thorrez on 14 July 2014 - 05:05 AM


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.

His procentage was so high the computer crashed trying to calculate it....

#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.

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.

#2749787 2014 SCHEDULE

Posted by Thorrez on 24 April 2014 - 07:29 AM

Looks like 16-0 to me.

#2735899 With these one year deals won't we be in the same situation we were this...

Posted by Thorrez on 11 April 2014 - 06:23 AM

I know about the Hurney saga what about moving forward? I don't like the idea of doing the 1 year contract thing every year.

We can move forward when the saga no longer have impact. It still has, and will through 2015 so deal with it.

Do you prefer a four year vet minimum contact with a bad player or a one year one with a guy with potential?

#2734077 D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

Posted by Thorrez on 10 April 2014 - 09:46 AM

Didn't Graham say basically the same thing while at the same time demanding 25% of the Saints cap for himself.

Some guys just do not have a clue...

#2721880 Rivera says Cam wasn't consulted in WR moves

Posted by Thorrez on 31 March 2014 - 04:43 AM

Hi Cam, welcome back from your vacation. I was going to call you and ask if you want to sign a four year extension averaging about $8M, so we can use $6-8M of the money you would otherwise get to keep our superstars Smith, LaFell and Ginn.

Instead I decided not to insult your intelligence.


#2712386 Other cornerback position?

Posted by Thorrez on 22 March 2014 - 02:37 PM

Hardy will be back. Insert Melvin White. If he gets hurt, any scrub will do.

Edit: any big bodied scrub.

Edit 2 any scrub Not named Josh!

It is much simpler, when Mikell went down. The two biggest plays the d gave up were both on Lester.
