#3328333 1st Rd OTs: When are we supposed to hold our breath?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 20 April 2015 - 11:55 PM

By the time we pick, a lot of talented guys will be off the board. Last I heard, 250 could be gone. That said, we should still be able to get a talented kid at 25. Whether he be a line-man, or a skilled position player, he should probably still push to be a starter.

We did get KB last year at 28. So there is still reason to hope we can be successful this year. There is just something about this draft that scares me. I know we should get a talented kid, but I am still worried all the good talent will be gone.

3 more days. I guess I can last that long.

#3326971 Panthers draft hat has been unveiled:

Posted by iamhubby1 on 19 April 2015 - 07:15 PM

If you have no reason to keep the sun out of your eyes, or the rain off your head. You don't need a hat. That, and it is disrespectful that you wear your hats indoors.

Hats are no longer a fashion statement. They are a needless accessory that too many folks think make them look cool.

Put the hat away, wash your hair occasionally, and join the civilized world.

That said. To each there own. Far be it for me to criticize folks for wanted to look...a certain way.

#3326106 2015 Draft: 1st Pick Poll

Posted by iamhubby1 on 18 April 2015 - 04:29 PM

If we don't get that WR from that school. If not him, I want that OT I like. Would prefer a skill position player first. I like skill position guys. They excite me. I like being excited.

#3324204 All jokes aside. Im really starting to think all the top WRs are gone by 25.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 16 April 2015 - 10:42 PM

Man, I love PU's thread. Not so much for their content. But for how he can get so many of the "Smart Kids" to chime in.

Getting so many folks to spend their time and energy trying to debunk him is truly amazing. Got to give the kid credit.

#3319260 If we go defense at 25, who do you like?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 11 April 2015 - 08:26 PM

Why draft high when we can get Boston's and Benwikere's in the mid rounds. We dont need to eventually draft a DB high

When I was younger, I always wanted skill position players in the first three rounds. My reasoning was that a team of athletes wins lots of games.

Then I went through my "Hog Molly's" phase. Where I wanted my lines taken care of.

Now? With the way our team is set up. I am all for BPA. With a lean towards big guys who are good athletes.

Other than Tackle, and maybe WR#2, we have solid starters all over the field. No matter who, or where, we pick, all the rookies are going to have to fight for playing time. This team is as close to be a complete team we may have ever seen.

#3319114 Mayock: 2015 WR class has eight with 1st round grade

Posted by iamhubby1 on 11 April 2015 - 04:55 PM

My thing is, from what I've read, noticed, seen, etc. we haven't even given the kid his due diligence.  Which annoys me, too talented to ignore because of his two problems that happened over a year ago.

I am not positive on the amount of diligence we have done with him. I agree, that he has the talent to warrant interest. Lots of kids get in some type of trouble early in college. The vast majority overcome it, and become contributing members of society.

I just have to think that Gman, and Co., have heard something that they didn't like. They must be scared off to basically be ignoring him.

I guess, my wanting a reliable mate for Benji is getting to me. Normally, I shy away from guys like this cuz they can be more trouble than they are worth. But I really like this kid.

#3318992 Luke and TD

Without a clip of TD pounding the Rally Drum. It is only so much...Fluff.

jk. Nice job as always.

#3314309 Aggresive index 2014 - Has the riverboat beached?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 07 April 2015 - 02:18 AM

Rivera isn't the same coach in 2013 who was fighting for his job. After 2013, he got comfortable which resulted in our losing 7-8-1 record in 2014. Nothing will change next season as well since making the playoffs by default is good enough for him.

Saying Rivera has struggled as a Head Coach. That I can live with. Saying he is content with not winning. That is just not right.

No one rises up the ranks in the NFL with a "Good enough" attitude.

Rivera may not have had the success we would prefer he have. But his failure is in no way tied to compliancy.

Fear is a hellofa drug. Let the past go. Free yourself from the shackles of doom. 10 years from now no one will even remember our 2nd Divisional win was with a losing record.

in the late 1820s abraham lincoln took a flatboat trip down the mississippi river with a friend to transport poo to new orleans. it was a formative experience in his life, and one of the lasting impressions in his mind occurred when they were camping by the shore overnight and a couple of runaway slaves sneaked on board and tried to ambush them and steal their cargo and kill them. lincoln beat their asses with an oar and drove them off, and a few weeks later in new orleans he watched a slave auction and connected the anger and desperation in the attack with the inhumanity of that institution, something that stuck with him throughout the rest of his life and helped form him into the most powerful abolitionist politician of his century.
another thing that happened on that trip was they were beebopping down the river and a pair of steamboats blew by them, racing. one of them, the yazoo or some poo, turned into a complete badass in the race and threw all caution to the wind, forgetting the boilers and the water levels and left the other steamboat in its wake and all the antebellum fatasses on board the loser all sad and bummed but then the lead boat, all cool and awesome and winning because of its gambling, blew its fuging stack out of nowhere and blew its entire cargo of antebellum fatasses into the mississippi river and burned down to the hull and sunk. lincoln drifted past them staring at the wreck.
i kind of think ron rivera might be the yazoo

Dude...sometimes you scare me. And there is a small part of me that likes it.

Pie for the Abe anecdote.

#3312168 Kelvin Benjamin has a new tat

Posted by iamhubby1 on 04 April 2015 - 08:33 PM

Don't know why. But, I can just see ol Lloyd walking up to random kids, and asking what their tatoos' represent. You know, collecting data and such.

#3307556 Why drafting a RB or defense won't solve our issues.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 31 March 2015 - 07:03 PM

ignoring BPA doesn't work out.

Gman doesn't draft for need. He factors in what we don't need as well. I can live with that philosophy.

He'll draft one when their value lines up with where we're picking.  Until then, he won't draft one.  Same with any position.  He's not going to reach.

Exactly the reason he didn't draft a Tackle last year. The value never matched up to where our picks were located. That, and he was sure that after the first few rounds, no talent was better than what we had.

He will sign anyone he thinks makes us better. As long as he can see value in the signing. Which is the main reason I can't wait to have some money. I am plenty interested in how he is going to value the higher rated FAs.

Did any if you Mel Kipers know who bene benewikere or Andrew norwell were before the draft

As a Big Ten fan, I did know who Norwell was. As for Bene', no clue. But I get what you are saying.

#3306934 April Fools Day, The Huddle, And You

Posted by iamhubby1 on 31 March 2015 - 02:07 PM

It would be awesome if ESPN or sportscenter ran a "Tom Brady traded to the Jets" prank.

How many folks remember the Sports Illustrated April Fools cover story about Sid Finch? Now that was a classic. If you are capable of creating something that innovative. You deserve the right to prank.

#3291701 Want speed and a WR that can seperate? Meet Devin Smith aka Mr. Separation

Posted by iamhubby1 on 19 March 2015 - 11:45 PM

As a State fan, and a Big Ten fan, I have seen plenty of Smith. The kid is a royal pain in the azz. I am just plain tired of the kid ruining my day. Based off that...It would be nice for him to be on my team for a change. As much as I hate OSU, I really wouldn't mind finding a way to get Smith.

With that said, you should know I am "Old School". I would rather go with a Hog Mollie in the first. So, If we want Smith, which I wouldn't mind, it has to be in the 2nd or later.

#3290322 Even if we hit another home run draft, is this team ready for primetime?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 18 March 2015 - 10:01 PM

IF we get at least 3 starters out of this draft. Yup...we should be able to compete with anybody.

As we sit right now, I feel we are the class of our Division. So, if Gman hits this draft as well, or better, than he usually does. Like PhillyB said. The giddy level should be as high as anytime in recent memory.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 15 March 2015 - 12:31 PM

Man it must suck being handsome,young,famous, talented and rich.

Hey, if it weren't for that rich thing, I'd be right there. Well, ok, maybe famous is a bit much, but other than...um, well I ain't exactly young. But I got that handsome thing going. So pretty much, Cam and I are twins. Yeah, that's the ticket.

#3282963 The reason Cam isn't in a hurry to sign a contract

Posted by iamhubby1 on 13 March 2015 - 05:32 PM

Pretty much.
There have been moves I haven't ultimately liked (tagging Hardy being the biggest, extending Rivera being another) but when you look at the level of success we've had - especially when compared to the rest of the team's history - and where we are now vs where we were when he got here. It's pretty easy to feel positive.

I mean it is one thing to be impatient. That is a fans right.

It's those folks who disregard the fact we have no money. Then say the reason we don't spend what we don't have, is because we strive to be mediocre.

How do you argue with folks who actually believe Gman and JR don't want to win?
