#2712853 D-Jax Big Possibility of Being Cut

I've had enough heart aches with the nicks situation.

#2711543 Greatest QB of all time?

Posted by Evengelion on 21 March 2014 - 08:46 PM

Let me guess, the final 3 will include brad.y, peyton, and rodgers. People are so obsessed with that position. Won't satisfy until someone's 'the greatest'. Just leave that poo alone already.

You're not kidding! Like they need to update that every year. Like Elway says, there will always be a debate. Not like basketball where individuality and improvisation is at every possession.

In what part of the article did Nicks say this?




Isn't he a FA? I'm sure he could act on it if he wanted to. He needs no ones' permission. The Luck nut huggers are at it again. They make it sound like Nicks is making a special request to play with Luck. Those people are so full of themselves. Can see their little pride in Luck. lol

Those WRs' agents probably leak that info so their club could pony up.

And lots of money to spend. There should be no excuses next year. Turning the ball over 7 times in 2 games and being the underdog again at 11 wins is unacceptable. The Texans are coming.

#2675268 Jon Beason: Would we have been better off?

Posted by Evengelion on 05 March 2014 - 04:56 AM

Skipped 12 pages of this thread. But No I don't think we would be better off.


BUT I bet we would have done as well as we did in 2013. Beason would have brought it playing his position and maybe some OL we dratfed would have offset whatever advantage Keek has over  Beason.


BUT Keek is the basis of this defense...possibly the best defense in the league...for hopefully around a decade.

You, sir, are a smart thinker and don't just follow the crowd. Riley Reif was that LT we would have had and he's starting for Detroit, those guys throw the ball a lot. That means he's pretty solid. It's one of the best offenses in the league. We would have Gross as the LT and Reiff as the RT. Cam would have had a whole day to scan the field. Bad receivers would look great because they'd have extra time to get open. The running game would certainly be elevated. Now that Gross retires all we'd need to do is move Reiff to LT and keep pounding. That's the kind of thing great organizations do. There is a reason Hurney got fired but this board doesn't take into account that Keuchly was a Hurney pick.


People don't realize that even though you drafted a great player in Keuchly but bad GMs draft redundantly all the time. Take the Jags for example, they drafted Eugene Monroe top 10 in 2009 and 4 years later they drafted Luke Joekel top 5 and got rid of Monroe. Now Monroe is just 26 years old and a high profile FA. That shows the Jags keep BPA the drafts and have no plan for them. Hopefully we don't maintain that path. Great organizations don't do poo like that so they're constantly relevant.


With a better OL, would we have converted on the 1 yard line against the 9ers in the playoffs? I say, yes to that.

Summer's Eve is butthurt that a white man took Beason's job.

You know Beason is starting for the NY Giants, right?

Kuechly just won DPOY following his ROY campaign and you ask this poo? Get. Out.

I'm not saying Beason is a better player but he's a 3 time pro bowler so he's no slouch. We subtracted a starting caliber MLB for a starting caliber MLB, and we lost a franchise LT.

Posted by Evengelion on 03 March 2014 - 10:02 AM

Suppose we had drafted an OT in 2012 instead of Luke Keuchly, would we have been better as a team right now? No, this is not a Keek bashing by any stretch. The OT that was drafted that year after our pick was Riley Reif by the Lions. Had we drafted him he would probably be playing RT for us, thus our running and passing game would have been better throughout that span.  Instead of Keuchly we would have Beason playing his spot. Having Keek kind of forced us to get rid of Beason thus losing a starting caliber player in Beason. Not saying that Beason would have done the same or a better job but it wouldn't be that far off, especially behind our DL. The tiny edge we get from Keuchly we would probably have gotten an even bigger return from the offense with better protection.


Now with Gross retiring all we'd need to do is move him to the LT spot. So this off season we would only be worrying about WRs and secondary and maybe an OT in the later rounds. Right now we have a complete mess.


Here is a highlight of Beason's 2013 season. The guy is a beast.

#2672563 Barry Switzer would 'never recruit a white quarterback'

Posted by Evengelion on 02 March 2014 - 10:21 PM

I mean it wouldn't hurt if he was more mobile and they may have made a few more plays if he could have avoided a sack, but there's only so much getting open you can do without sending guys further downfield (and actually targeting them, not just having them run decoy routes). I don't remember seeing the Broncos attempt a single deep pass all game. Maybe I'm forgetting one or two but generally they just ran the same short crossing routes again and again. Denver's WRs made great plays after the catch for most of the season (which is where the physical talent comes in), but Seattle's defense did a great job of wrapping them up and tackling them immediately after the catch.

I think Peyton was sacked maybe once in the game. The threat of the rush and the prospect of getting hit intimidate him because he's not used to it. If he were able to evade the rush Seattles' secondary wouldn't be able to cover their receivers for too long. The fact that they didn't have to worry about Peyton's leg made it easier to play coverage. Seattle's toughest opponents the last couple of years have been with teams with mobile QBs. It's no coincidence. I remember Justin Tuck saying himself how much easier it is playing against Drew Brees than RG3. If the mobile QBs couldn't throw the football I would agree pocket QBs are better. But when the mobile QBs are just as accurate we all need to admit the obvious instead of waiting 5-10 years from now to do so. I do understand that because there is the semblance of a racial component to it many get into their protective pasture, but no one is arguing there can't be white dual threat QBs here. Mobile QBs are young and unestablished, and there will be many faces to them in the coming future.

#2672534 Barry Switzer would 'never recruit a white quarterback'

Posted by Evengelion on 02 March 2014 - 10:04 PM

The NFC was overrepresented by teams with great defenses which drug their teams to the playoffs despite limited passing offenses.


Seattle finished 1st in total defense.

Carolina finished 2nd in total defense.

San Francisco finished 5th in total defense.




Seattle finished 26th in passing.

Carolina finished 29th in passing.

San Francisco finished 30th in passing.


But I suppose, by your ludicrous reasoning, these teams made the playoffs primarily because of the talents of their QB's.


Here is a better question:


Would Denver, which finished 19th in total defense, have made the playoffs with either Kapernick or Wilson  at QB???


Maybe. But until one of them takes his team to the playoffs without a great defense, it is an open question.


After all Kaepernick has never passed for 3200 yards in a season.

Wilson has never passed for 3400 yards in a season.


Can you win consistently in the NFL without a great defense with those kinds of numbers???


I suppose your real point must be something along these lines: If Seattle and Denver traded QB's, then Denver would suddenly be better than Seattle because Wilson is better than Manning. Ludicrous? Yes.


Incidentally, my take on the ceiling for white quarterbacks is, oh,  somewhere around the Joe Montana level.


Seattle's offense did put up 35 (44-9=35) points in the SB. Seattle's offense is no slouch. They went through injury period throughout the year but when they're healthy, which they were in the SB, they'll put up 50, easy. Yes, Wilson only threw for 3400, how many did he rush for? I'm sure you know rushing yards move the chain too. How many time Peyton throws a 4 yard slant that goes for 50? A lot. And it counts as a 50 yards completion. There is more than one way to skin a cat.


Tom Br4dy made his reputation winning SBs with great D. Unless it only counts when white QBs do it, right? What about Eli's 2 SBs? No, SBs ever won where the defense didn't stop the other team. Now you want to put a face to the defense. I thought it used to be QB X 'win SB'. Now it's 'Russell Wilson with great D win SB'. How hypocritical.


#2671342 Barry Switzer would 'never recruit a white quarterback'

Posted by Evengelion on 01 March 2014 - 04:03 PM


“I’ve always said I’d never recruit a white quarterback. The only way I’d ever recruit a white quarterback to play for me is if his mom and daddy would both have to be black, and that’s the only way I would do it. My quarterback is a quarterback-fullback offense – how the wishbone was. I’d have to have a Jamelle Holieway, J.C. Watts and Thomas Lott (former Oklahoma quarterbacks who are all black). Those guys are gonna be my quarterbacks – great runners, great ball carriers and be able to pass. Those guys could throw and run.”




He didn't seem to mean it in any racist way, after all, he's white himself. Watching Peyton Manning getting ramrodded by Seattles' D in the SB with all the weapons he had beg the question, what is the ceiling of a pure pocket passing QB. If Peyton couldn't tame a defense with all his #1 type WRs and TEs, how much better can anyone else do. On the opposite of the field was little Russell Wilson throwing darts and making the defenses look silly. The Seahaws OL is certainly not as stout at the Broncos yet they could barely touch him running circles around them. What if the Seahaws had 4 number 1 type WRs on their roster like the Broncos, how would a defense stop that? How would a defense stop Cam if Carolina had the weapons the Broncos had?


To Switzer's defense the NFC was overly represented in the playoffs the last couple years with very young dual threat QBs. On the other hand the AFC, because of its lack of dual threat QBs, by default was overwhelmingly represented by the traditionals. Which begs the question, were the traditionals better or were they just, well, traditionals. Traditions do change however.


The writer did however got into a defensive posture and tried to make it seem it's slight against black QBs when in reality it's more so the opposite:


In his two years as A&M’s starter, Manziel proved he is an excellent runner and thrower, which throws a wrench into the black vs. white quarterback stereotypes. On top of that, there have been a number of black quarterbacks who have proved to be tremendous pocket passers.

Thanks for letting us know 'there have been a number of black QBs who have proved to be tremendous passer'. We would never have known that. In fact, all the black QBs in the NFL right now are tremendous passers. Switzer is referring to the fact that they can run too. Smash mouth football is on its way back, baby!

A franchise trying to surround their young QB with weapons, what abunch of morons...

Weird, right? I thought teams normally wait when their starting LT retire and #1 receiver turn 40 before they find their replacement. Poor Luck, he's doing it all by himself with no weapon. Decker just cannot get wide open all the time. lol
