#2961570 Wes Horton, Mario Addison, Kony Ealy

Posted by gettlemanjack on Today, 06:30 PM

Wes Horton on his father:

Q. Your dad (Mike Horton) was Gemini on ‘American Gladiators.’ What’s your best Gladiators story?
A. I don’t remember too much of it because I was too young. But I have pictures of us playing on the set, climbing up the Eliminator. We were rolling around in the balls. So we had full access to all the sets.
...
Q. Did he play football?
A. He did. He played for the Eagles and Patriots, then played in the USFL and the CFL. In the USFL he played with Reggie White. He had to block Reggie White every day in practice with the Memphis Showboats.

Q. Can you take him?
A. All the way up until recently, I’ve always been pretty intimidated by my father. He’s a black belt in karate. He could probably kick anyone’s ass. So I would imagine he could probably kick my ass.
...
Q. If they brought Gladiators back again, could you hang?
A. Of course I could hang. I’ve got Gemini in my blood.

MICHAEL HORTON
Gemini was one of the orginal Gladiators and was the team captain throughout his four year stay. He was an unstoppable force in Atlaspheres, Duel and Powerball and had great respect for the Contenders. Since leaving the arena, Gem-Gem-Gem Gemini has appeared in the hit movie 'Night at the Roxbury' and is now a Hollywood stunt actor.

Major thing I took from the presser: I now fully believe that the front office and team as a whole believe Greg Hardy is innocent.


reasonable minds can disagree if the evidence shows he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and Hardy was accused of multiple assaults (throwing her in bathtub, choking her, throwing her down on a couch full of machine guns)

Of those, I read at least five articles that said the woman said Hardy threw her in the bathtub and that is how she got the big bruise on her back, while Hardy said at trial she got the bruise by throwing herself in the bathtub. If that's true, sounds like Hardy is guilty of at least that. But that's not as bad as punching a girl in the face and so the punishment shouldn't be as bad as for punching a girl in the face

#2960577 The Greg Hardy thread....for everything Hardy related

Posted by gettlemanjack on Today, 01:48 PM

This is all part of Gettleman's plan.

Hire a crazy woman to give false accusations about what happened so that we suspend Hardy for a year while it gets dealt with. When he is ruled innocent, we then 'apologize' by re-signing him to a MUCH smaller deal long term than he would have gotten.

It's all about the long term. Gettleman is a genius.

#2959111 New York Post: "Meet the powerhouse Panthers," rank Panthers #1 in NFC

Posted by gettlemanjack on Yesterday, 09:35 PM

fun fact:
With the 49ers loss, the longest active regular season win streak in the NFL now belongs to the Carolina Panthers (5)


#2958979 Panthers have signed rookie RB Lache Seastrunk to the practice squad.

Posted by gettlemanjack on Yesterday, 08:33 PM

some tweets on Seastrunk:

NFL Insider for Yahoo Sports, Rand Getlin:
-"The #Redskins got a talented player in former #Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk . Adds a home run threat to their arsenal."
-"Just seeing this, but the #Redskins released RB Lache Seastrunk. Has speed to burn. Imagine he'll find a home soon."
-"Given the immense physical talent RB Lache Seastrunk has, it's amazing to me that he's not on someone's practice squad."
-"The #Panthers announce they've signed RB Lache Seastrunk to their practice squad. Supreme talent. Hope he sticks."

NFL National Lead at Bleacher Report, Michael Schottey:
"Washington gets Lache Seastrunk, who was my No. 1 back…love his running style. Gets me outta my seat all the time."

John McClain, who has covered the NFL for the Houston Chronicle for 35 years:
"That's it! Rick Smith is officially done! How many times can a GM pass up an RB like Lache Seastrunk? It's over, Rick. Here's your pink slip"

ex-scout Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com:
"I like the RBs in this draft. Good value in mid rds. Lache Seastrunk is a nice screen/draw type with HR speed."

Steelers beat reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Gerry Dulac:
"Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk, who is visiting #Steelers today, is high on their RB list. Don't be surprised...."

Cleveland Browns Senior Media Broadcaster Nathan Zegura:
"He can fly! Middle round gem possibility RT @BUFootball : Lache Seastrunk just stole the show with an unofficial 4.35 40. #ProDayBU"

Chris B. Brown, editor of SmartFootball.com:
"Not a surprise to see Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk pacing the field in the vertical and broad jumps. Very explosive player, acceleration"

Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:
"Lache Seastrunk making an early bid for preseason MVP"

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com
"Holy cow, #Redskins RB Lache Seastrunk 80-yard TD vs. Bucs. Man can fly. A RB-needy team may be calling the Skins. Can’t keep all those guys"

Redskins analyst for 106.7 The Fan in DC, Grant Paulsen:
"Releasing Lache Seastrunk surprises me. I like Redd but I would've kept both. Keeping a 3rd QB over an upside- prospect is still silly to me."

A Redskins guy with 164,317 followers:
"Only the #Redskins would be dumb enough to let such a talent like Lache Seastrunk go."

Redskins Staff Reporter for The Sports Quotient:
-"Panthers signed Seastrunk. They got a gem."


#2958837 Panthers have signed rookie RB Lache Seastrunk to the practice squad.

couple tweets from Dale Earnhardt Jr, who is a huge Redskins fan (for ex, after his recent win at Pocono, he was asked to name his simple joys. The Redskins finished second, only behind his girlfriend. “Amy, the Redskins, my family, drinking a cold beer,” Earnhardt answered.)

-"Seems Skins got some nice depth at WR and some hard decisions at RB."

-"Seastrunk shoulda been one of 53. #redskins"

or a practice squad.

Seastrunk got signed to the practice squad of one of the most dominant teams in the NFL, the Panthers. Basically he made the Panthers' 63-man roster (53 plus 10 for practice squad) that is active for every Panthers practice. Practice squad players must be paid at least $6,300 per week, which totals $107,100 for a 17-week season. Not bad for someone who justed turned 23. Doctors don't make that until their late 20s after med school, residency, internship, etc...and that is working and being on-call all year, not just 17 weeks of work plus preseason

Once he cleared waivers, there is no telling how many teams approached Seastrunk's agent to get him on their practice squad, but I sure am glad he chose the Panthers. DeAngelo Williams is 31 and J Stew has struggled with injuries, so it's a good move by him

I like this more than I liked drafting Gaffney.


Seastrunk *was* drafted before Gaffney last draft
#186 overall - Seastrunk
#204 overall - Gaffney


#2958325 Panthers have signed rookie RB Lache Seastrunk to the practice squad.

This guy goes from a nobody to being a Panther Huddle favorite over the course of an hour.

Unbiased Opinion: Scrub PS body

Biased/Huddle Opinion: Next year's starter.


anybody who follows college football knows Seastrunk is actually a very legit young prospect. He just turned 23 in July

compare him to fellow Big 12 alum Darren Sproles out of college:

Sproles: projected 4th R, drafted 4th R
Seastrunk: projected 4th R, drafted early 6th R

Sproles: 4.47 forty at combine at 5-06/187
Seastrunk: 4.46 forty at combine at 5-10/201, ran a 4.37 forty at his Pro Day on 3/19/14

Sproles: 33 inch vertical, 8'09" broad jump
Seastrunk: 41 1/2 vertical, 11'02" broad jump

Sproles: 3-Cone Drill: 6.96
Seastrunk: 3-Cone Drill: 6.81

Sproles rushing in college
senior 2004 - 1,318 yds (5.4 ypc), 11 TD
junior 2003 - 6.5 ypc
soph 2002 - 6.2 ypc

Seastrunk rushing in college:
junior 2013 - 1,177 yds (7.45 ypc) 11 TD
soph 2012 - 1,012 yds (7.73 ypc) 7 TD

#2958151 New York Post: "Meet the powerhouse Panthers," rank Panthers #1 in NFC

Posted by gettlemanjack on Yesterday, 02:41 PM

The New York Post, the 13th-oldest and seventh-most widely circulated newspaper in the United States, has Panthers #2 in in NFL only behind Broncos with the headline: "NFL Power Rankings: Meet the powerhouse Panthers"

"Cam Newton and the Panthers are flying high with a 2-0 start backed by a clamp-down defense... The Seahawks’ defense might get most of the attention, but its counterpart in Carolina needs to start being part of the conversation. The Panthers are 2-0 ... and almost all of the credit needs to go to a defense that..looks every bit as suffocating as the one in Seattle. ... Do-everything linebacker Luke Kuechly, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is off to an unsurprising hot start, but he’s far from the whole story. It’s players like Dwan Edwards and Mario Addison (each with 2 1/2 sacks already) who are making the true difference."

The New York Post also tweeted: "NFL Power Rankings: Most wrote off the Panthers , but they look just as good as last year"

#2958088 Jags sign WR Tavarres King off Practice Squad

Posted by gettlemanjack on Yesterday, 02:02 PM

meanwhile the Redskins cut another ex-Georgia player, safety Baccari Rambo, from their 53 to make room for strong safety Brandon Meriweather, who returned from a two-game suspension.

Rambo, who just turned 24 in June, was a 1st Team All-American and 1st Team All-SEC safety at Georgia, where he finished tied #1 in Georgia school history with 16 career INTs. During his three years as a starter for Georgia, the Georgia D ranked:
2010 - #36 scoring D
2011 - #23 scoring D
2012 - #18 scoring D

maybe we take a look?
