#3326079 IPA Top 100 List

Posted by FootballMaestro on 18 April 2015 - 04:01 PM


Had a 6 pack of this last night. UHMAZING!


They're so many good IPA's, I don't know where to start (including Throegs own Nugget Nectar, along with Ballast Point Sculpin, Victory Dirt Wolf Double IPA, Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, DogFish Head 90 min Imperial IPA, Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian IPA, Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail, etc).


Problem with the list above, they limit choices to 8% alcohol and "American Style IPA (whatever the hell that means, since they originated in/from England for the trip to India)"? LOL

#3325992 Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

Posted by FootballMaestro on 18 April 2015 - 01:45 PM

I hate Russell Wilson but he's a pretty good QB. He has a poor Offensive line and no great WR but yet does well in the passing game.

If your trying to say RW's stats are only good because he throws short quick passes then why did he lead the NFL postseason in yards per attempt and in the regular season was above average in yards per attempt?

We can try to say that certain players are only good because of certain players around them or schemes but it still don't change the fact that they are still successful in what they ate doing.


Be careful pointing that out. RG3 lead the league in that stat, and it was clear he threw a bunch, an assortment of LOS, beyond LOS, and short quick throws (mind you the high school offense they were running, and run game he relied on). So though it can mean something, that doesn't really mean anything when you actually can watch a player/team. And you have to keep in mind, Wilson/Seattle doesn't throw much either. They've been amongst the lowest attempts since his arrival in the league (not including the fact, the play action he gets off of having Lynch there).


I hear what you're saying. And I'm not saying myself Wilson's bad. I'm just pointing out the hype/what's being said, doesn't necessarily correlate with what he's asked to to on a regular basis on the field. That's all, the issue.

I certainly think Wilson is capable of being more than a game manager. His receiving corps gets poo on a lot, but they allow him to improvise. They *always* come back to the ball. Compare their receivers to, say, Cotchery in the divisional game, who sat at the top of his route and allowed Chancellor the pick six.

Wilson puts the ball where his receivers can get to it, so I don't mean to take anything away from him. But with Lynch (and therefore, the play action) not available, his limitations would shine. Improvising and and scrambling can only take you so far.


Well said.


Wilson's smart and certainly does certain things well.


However, if you remove him off that Seattle team (lets' say, place him on Cam's Rookie year Panthers), then his deficiencies would stick out more often like a sore thumb.


Actually, they already do. Many times when he scrambles around back there looking to throw his "Horse Shitz", is because he's not nearly as composed reading defenses as many believe, so many times can't see over, or react to the defense in order to throw the ball cleanly down field. Luckily for Wilson, he's not placed into those positions too often, thanks to Seattle's defense, playing calling, and/or their run game.


You're right. Wilson's not often placed in throw only situations repeatedly. And the few times he does, it's still usually off of a quick throw to a predetermined receiver. He's very rarely asked to survey the field in the pocket, then throw the ball across or down the field, especially in tight windows....Nope! Not at all.


They mask his deficiencies well over there (which is what good schemes and teams do for their players). Russell, just has more, and more glaring ones than most observers normally notice or would admit to.

Never seen anyone who said no other QB misses throws...hence the mark of an accurate QB is usually 60%+ and not 100%


Just read the Huddle on Game day and  you will see plenty (along with that/those variable thrown to pot). :cool:

Sorry about that other NFL team fan...ya see most of these doods don't actually watch football outside of the Panthers games....forgive their ignorance.


































The answer is no btw.


Ya. Usually, the sames fans who feel no other QB's misses throws or receivers other than Cam. :phew:

I would also like to add that you are seeing the result of the expensive contracts they are paying the defense.  2 years ago, these guys were on cheap deals.  No longer.


Wilson is crazy if he thinks he is elite.  take away a good OL, Lynch, and he is running scared.


The GM is absolutely correct,  He could put Derrick Anderson under center and get similar results.


Yeah, just look at what Harbaugh did for his QB's.  :cool: 


This is for anyone that doubts what a good offensive system and defense can do to/for an average or below average QB.

#3323222 FOX's Peter Schrager: "I expect Carolina to take a WR in the 1st R"

Posted by FootballMaestro on 16 April 2015 - 09:32 AM

The irony of what I'm reading in this thread: No matter what you guys, the media, so called draft experts and NFL personnel guys think, I guarantee you, some of the guys they say are studs will be flops. And some of the guys who are more lightly regarded and/or have alleged holes in their games, will be much better than advertised.


Nonetheless, I love how people talk about these players (particularly the receivers) as if what people saying about them are written in stone when the season actually starts. And we're also not sure, who's going to rise, and who's going to plummet come draft day. Some always do.


I say: Why not just put your trust in the idea that Gettlemen will hopefully make the best pick when it's his turn/comes available? :cool:

#3308272 Why drafting a RB or defense won't solve our issues.

Posted by FootballMaestro on 01 April 2015 - 07:56 AM

That's just a flat out lie, go find me a top 100 board from 2011 no one had Cam as there number 1 ranked player


Let me not even bring up what most panthers fans thought about Cam at the time, cause everyone is going to come out looking like Hypocrites


This has been discussed ad nauseum here.


Don't go by silly TV guys and so called draft analyst well before the draft.


NFL people had Cam as clearly the best player. As a matter of fact, as the draft drew near he was the consensus #1. And even the folks who didn't have Cam as the best player, clearly stated he had best player talent if it wasn't for their concerns (which were mostly untrue and unfounded).


Remember, the NFL Scouting service, did the same background checks the Panthers did, and Cam came out smelling like roses, despite what the media was implying and telling us at the time. Th


Those folks were right.

#3297200 best coaches 2015 per rotoworld

Posted by FootballMaestro on 24 March 2015 - 10:29 AM

That's a pretty generous ranking for him and like some others have said....Cam and Luke are making a few coaches a lot of money right now...We keep winning even though Ron and Shula are in the way.




And even though he's suppossed to be this great defensive coach, the Panther defense has sucked outright, and/or blown leads in the most incredulous, embarrassing of ways every year he's been head coach. :sick:

#3270278 Ted Ginn update

#3230669 If Cam, Romo or Peyton threw that game ending INT....

Posted by FootballMaestro on 04 February 2015 - 10:03 AM

He is their darling, that is for sure.  I think it is funny how he has a RB who gets 5 yards after getting hit at the LOS, a defense that not only keeps the other teams from scoring, but gives him turnovers with great field position.  His "Hail Mary" 2-pointer vs. Green Bay is all I needed to see. 


Wilson is staring to believe the hype.  You can tell by his answers when interviewed by the adoring media.  He is not that good--he is elusive and able to improvise, but when you are usually leading the game and you have a defense that has your back, a RB who brings 8 to the box--really?


That is like punching another kid on the playground while your buddies hold his arms and legs.  Then walking around like you are one tough hombre.


Shoot, the good field position is the short of it. His defense, actually scores points for him, as they did about  24 unanswered in the Superbowl, before he/Seattle's offense, or Denver scored a point. I Heard a stat, that mentioned Seattles Defense Has Led The League in Scoring the Past Two years as well.


And yes, he's always had the luxury of playing with a running back that gets the immediate attention of the defense (besides a great OC, and defense), which takes a tremendous amount of play by play pressure off of him and responsibility. This alone, makes him peripheral to what they do on offense (Wilson, works off of the run game and what the defense does to prepare for it). He's not the guy opposing defenses focus on primarily.


And I agree; he's letting the media stuff go to his head (which his probably one of the reasons why we saw the stories about many of his teammates not liking him last year). The thought of him talking about winning six Superbowls, with his limited skill set, and the fact that the defense, and other players on the team were the bigger contributors and Super Bowl (or potential Super Bowl MVP, if Seattle won this year), makes his hubris even more classless and unbelievable. Be humble man, the way the media portrays you.


He either, truly really believes this junk, or is trying to play up to his fake media image.

#3230663 If Cam, Romo or Peyton threw that game ending INT....

Posted by FootballMaestro on 04 February 2015 - 09:56 AM

I've said just that.  Credit to Butler for making a great play and flat out jumping the route, but there was no reason for him to lead the receiver, it's not like he needed a run after the catch.  Wilson, if anything, was the worst part of the play.  Seattle had the personnell matchup in their favor, and like I've said, a pass was not the worst play call in the world considering IF they have to run 3 plays from the 1, 1 would have to be a pass, why not then when the matchup favored them and open the playbook the next 2 plays.  Wilson never looked at any other receiver and the pass was not good.  IMO, he cost them the game. 


True. Wilson, did stare down the receiver, and placed a high throw.


If he would have thrown it at the receivers feet (for a sliding catch), or even in the gut, with a bit more risk, the ball is probably caught or deflected.

#3229670 Cris Carter on RW contract

Posted by FootballMaestro on 03 February 2015 - 12:31 PM

Cam was the ENTIRE offense for 3.5 years (running & passing), and he's expected to settle for much less than his value, based on people around here?

Silly people...




Plus, a new, big contract shouldn't really bother Cam.


Why?....Cause he's already carried a disproportionate amount of the burden, hopes, blame, expectations, and ire of both the fans and the media, as well as the offense.


I'm not sure I can say the same for Wilson, who's never been in that position since he's came in the league. He's always been on the periphery, benefiting off of what people like Lynch, the OC, and what the defense does many times. Now you give a guy that type of money, and all of a sudden people are looking at you for being the savior, particularly if you have to let certain players go.
