#3263509 DJ Humphries or Jake Fisher in the 1st

Posted by gettlemanjack on 04 March 2015 - 11:00 PM

Fisher without a doubt. Better agility, plays with tenacity, and can block on an island.

I'm convinced Humphries looks better because the LG for Miami (don't know his name) plays like a beast. He helps Humphries a lot. Rarely is Humphries asked to block a guy single handedly. That and Duke Johnson is a fantastic runner. Humphries is hyped up right now in my opinion. Good tools but not enough proof that he knows how to use them. Just one guy's opinion.


Humphries plays for Florida. The Miami OT is Ereck Flowers

This Texas A&M cornerback Deshazor Everett is very fluid.

One of the athletes I really liked at Bommarito's was Texas
A&M's Deshazor Everett . He stops on a dime & gives change

#3263272 Panthers met with Texas A&M CB Deshazor Everett

Posted by gettlemanjack on 04 March 2015 - 08:17 PM


at Texas A&M's Pro Day today...

Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net:
"Deshazor Everett - I'm told he looked smooth and very fluid in all the drills besides running faster than many expected. After the workout, Everett met with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans."
http://walterfootball.com/proday.php

he wasn't invited to the combine, but at aTm's Pro Day today he did great:

GoodBullHunting.com Justin Kaspar @ Ranger222 7h
Deshazor Everett made him some money today. Great all
around numbers from Pro Day.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram Charean Williams @ NFLCharean 3h
A&M CB Deshazor Everett had 38-inch vertical, 10-10 broad,
6.78 three-cone and 4.49 in the 40.

TexAgs @ TexAgs 9h
Deshazor Everett posted a 38” vertical leap, which would’ve
tied him for 8th at the NFL Combine.

Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net:
"Many were surprised when cornerback Deshazor Everett was not invited to the combine, and he justified that surprise today. His marks included 4.47-second time in the 40, a 6.78-second time in the three-cone drill, a vertical jump of 38 inches and 10-10 in the broad jump. Over the past two days, Everett has met privately with the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears."

he's the guy that got this famous game-clinching INT at #1 Alabama in 2012...

#3262326 Adrian Peterson wants to be traded to 1 of 5 teams, one in the NFC south

Posted by gettlemanjack on 04 March 2015 - 11:09 AM


both AP and Lovie Smith were born and raised in small Texas towns located just 70 miles from each other...and they both played college football in Oklahoma, where they were both All-Americans

Also, both Peterson's dad and the new OC of the Bucs (Dirk Koetter) were at Idaho State in the early 1980s, where one was on the basketball team (AP's dad) and the other on the football team (Koetter)


#3262038 Maclin, and Cobb will not be Franchise Tagged

Posted by gettlemanjack on 04 March 2015 - 12:43 AM

Tim Kawakami @ timkawakami 8h
49ers free agency: Jeremy Maclin might be the most interesting WR out there for them, if Randall Cobb is too expensive

"the 49ers would love Cobb (what team wouldn’t?), but I just don’t see how he fits into their payroll these days, especially if he is aiming for something above $10-11M a year
...
The more reasonable choice (potentially): the Eagles’ Jeremy Maclin...(but) if Maclin’s asking price is above $8M per… that might not be a number the 49ers can meet.

#3261855 Eagles and Bills: Major Trade

Posted by gettlemanjack on 03 March 2015 - 09:22 PM

NFL.com :

"The Eagles ' willingness to part with McCoy is a stunner on the surface, but this is essentially a salary dump in which the return value is a young linebacker with Pro Bowl potential.
Chip Kelly was reluctant to devote $11.95 million in cap space to McCoy after watching the 26-year-old's production drop from 5.1 yards per carry and 10.4 yards per reception to 4.2 and 5.5, respectively.
After being phased out of the passing game in favor of Darren Sproles early in the season, McCoy forfeited short-yardage work to Chris Polk down the stretch. In other words, McCoy was too often on the sidelines in critical situations. With McCoy's role diminished and his effectiveness waning, the Eagles reached the conclusion that it was better to pull the cord a year early than a year too late.
...
As long as Alonso returns to pre-injury form, the Eagles will boast one of the NFL's speediest inside linebacker duos in Alonso and Mychal Kendricks .

reactions on a Bills forum:

Is LeSean Worth Kiko AND a Ten Million Dollar Free Agent? Thats the question I have . LeSean makes about ten million dollars a year more than Kiko . So we could have had Kiko and whatever free agent you can get for ten million dollars a year . Or we could have LeSean . Personally I would take Kiko and the ten million dollar man .

Is the Eagles 1st round pick involved ? Cause if not , this trade is absurd ! McCoy is set to make $ 10 mill this year ! Kiko was set to be a beast making , what , $ 1 mill ? RB' s are a freaking dime a dozen in today ' s NFL ! Elite LB ' s are not ! Absurd.

Shady is on the downside of his career ; Kiko is a rising star . I don ' t like this trade at all .

I strongly dislike this trade . I live in Philly. Eagles fans are laughing at us . Again .

I work in sports media and everyone is laughing at me / us . SHADY WAS LIKELY GOING TO GET CUT ANYWAY .

We traded a rising star LB for a RB on who ' s on the downside of his career and making $ 11 mil a year in a QB driven league ( still don ' t have one of those , BTW) . Shady has had more carries than anybody in the league over the last 2 seasons. He' s 27 , but been in the league since 20 or 21 and has a lot of mileage. Bad trade .

When you have 30 million to spend and you spend 10 mil of that on a rb on a team that has not had a solid starting qb now in nearly 20 yrs , yea it has been a ongoing joke. Nothing surprises me anymore . I would not be surprised if the bills never again make the playoffs .

terrible move . this team is so much better suited for a 4 - 3 . wish we would have hired hue jackson and kept scwartz . our lbs would be set for 10 years with kiko - preston - nigel . whaley has set this organization back another 5 years.

Bills can' t help themselves but make terrible moves every 3 years in regards to their RBs .

I refuse to believe we did this . Running backs are a dime a dozen and solid linebackers are not .

excuse me , I gotta go vomit

Seriously, if this is legit , then I am livid and move right to the head of the Fire Whaley fanclub .

Really stupid . Dumb to get rid of Alonso but at least understandable if for a QB or high pick but not for a RB. Hope this is fake .

this can' t be real . . . Please dont be real

not fathomable how clueless our management is

This is a joke move . Im sick.

Terrible trade .

This is horrible

I can spit in a crowd of people at wal mart and hit a decent caliber running back , but we have been lackluster at LB for YEARS and now we get rid of a second year STUD for a 26 year old RB who may or may not be any more efficient than CJ ( who most certainly is gone now ) behind our line ??

Terrible. Can ' t believe this .

**** me in the goat *** I can' t believe this ****. **** kkkkkk

Sick to my stomach .


more reactions from a Bills forum:

Shady is about to be public enemy number 1 . He better show up to play. Thats for sure .

A 3 down LBer is invaluable in today ' s game . Especially one as skilled as Alonso . RB' s , even as skilled as McCoy , are not difference makers in a passing league . Eagles *** rape the Bills in this deal.

This is a crap move . Trade a great young defensive player for a position that is a dime a dozen all while we have no quarterback . He' s a great back , but I would ' ve been happier with Kiko and a RB in the draft .

Stupid **** ing *****s .

I ' ve been defending Whaley but man this is undefendable

i said it before . . . Whaley is a bad GM

Whaley needs to be gone by midnight

This is the worst move I have ever heard of . All faith in this FO is gone .

I am so **** ing mad right now I could spit ****ing nails.

RB' s are not as valuable as a good LBer . . . especially a LBer that is good in coverage .

like people have been saying a good LB is harder to find than a RB

Who the **** is responsible for this nonsense ?

Why would they do this ?

There ' s a few thing wrong with it but for me the biggest thing is your trading for a HB that has tread on his tires when this is the deepest position in the draft .

This was a stupid move . . . Period . You trade for an 11 million dollar RB?? Why not just sign Spiller ? That eats up a bunch of cap space . . Whaley has completely lost me with this move . Is McCoy a great player, sure he is but we traded away a great LB and paid top dollar to do so . Why not just go get Murray ? He likely would cost less and we would still have Kiko . Whaley got taken to the cleaners last year by the Eagles , they figured they would go to the well again I guess. For the record , McCoy is a heck of a back but this is not smart IMO .

Running back is not the problem . This does not help the bills and now they take a huge cap hit

I ' m not on board with the move . McCoy is a nice upgrade at RB but IMO Alonso will be a franchise linebacker for years. If Buffalo was going to trade him , Try to get a QB like Bradford or a high draft pick . We could have easily addressed the RB need with a 2 nd or 3 rd round pick this year .

If they just traded Kiko straight up for McCoy then Whaley needs to be fired right on the spot . That would be by far the dumbest move by OBD in the entire history of badly run team. Now if Foley is included I might not be so mad even though they are reaching hard and to get rid of Kiko is completely nuts . If this is true , Kiko for McCoy straight up , they better fire Whaley ASAP .

My cousin is dogging me right now , shes an Eagles fan


#3261729 Eagles and Bills: Major Trade

Posted by gettlemanjack on 03 March 2015 - 08:17 PM

Paul Domowitch's article from January predicting the Eagles wouldn't keep McCoy because they couldn't afford both him and Maclin

"McCoy is only 26, but already has played six NFL seasons. His 1,461 carries rank ninth among active running backs. Most of the eight in front of him - Steven Jackson, Frank Gore, Willis McGahee, Chris Johnson, Maurice Jones-Drew - are on the downside of their careers. While the run game is a key element of Kelly's offense, he, like a growing number of other NFL coaches, might feel he can find a younger, cheaper replacement(s) in the draft.
Take a look at the leading rushers for this year's 12 playoff teams. The Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch is the only back with a salary-cap number above $5 million ($8M). The leading rushers for nine of the 12 playoff teams had a cap number under $2 million. And this year's draft is supposed to be especially rich and deep in running backs."
http://mobile.philly...es&id=290151411


and another article from March where he predicts it is not likely McCoy will be back:

"McCoy's 2015 cap number is $11.9 million, second highest among NFL running backs to Adrian Peterson ($15.4 million). Throw in Darren Sproles' $4.1 million cap number and have $16 million of the Eagles' 2015 salary cap (expected to be around $140 million) invested at running back. And that will increase even more once the Eagles tender restrict free agent Chris Polk. McCoy is only 26 and is one of the two or three best backs in the league. But he already has nearly 1,800 career touches. If his cap number were, say $5 million to $6 million, we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. But it isn't. Chip Kelly has said he wants McCoy back, but at $11.9 million? Not likely."

Turns 29 in November. Last season, Pro Football Focus rated him as the 26th best 3-4 defensive end in all of football.

He was the Defensive MVP of the 2008 BCS National Championship Game (had a monster game in LSU's victory over Ohio State...six tackles, 1.5 tackles for losses, a half sack and blocked a field goal), he was also the guy that blocked the FG at the end of the 2008 LSU v Alabama game with time expiring that sent the game to overtime

#3250663 Better know a Prospect - Jake Fisher

Posted by gettlemanjack on 23 February 2015 - 12:43 PM

Was injured early in the Ducks season, and it had a negative effect on the team. Mariotta was sacked 12 times while he was out. The whole Oregon offense showed a marked improvement when he came back. That speaks volumes to me.


Fisher missed 2 games this season with a leg injury, and the Ducks surrendered 12 sacks in those games; they gave up 19 in the other 13 games combined.
2 games without Fisher: 12 sacks allowed (6.00 per game)
13 games with Fisher: 19 sacks allowed (1.46 per game)
