2011 - Honey Badger finished #5 and was one of the 5 in NYC that year

#3131055 Kony ealy at DT

Posted by gettlemanjack on 12 December 2014 - 01:40 PM

He's too small for a dt in the NFL.

He's like Bennett and Tuck in his versatility at being both a good DE and a good DT on passing downs. Chart below is from that same full breakdown i posted the link to above:


#3131036 Kony ealy at DT

Posted by gettlemanjack on 12 December 2014 - 01:29 PM

If he was a slow-starter at DE, the position he was largely drafted for, then maybe he needed to start to figure that out before they moved him inside as well.

what made Ealy valuable as a prospect was he was so good at DT in addition to DE, like Justin Tuck or Michael Bennett. Here is a full breakdown including film:

"Ealy was actually a more effective interior rusher at Mizzou, and drew a pre-draft comparison to Seahawks star DE/DT Michael Bennett from NFL Films' Greg Cosell... Greg Cosell said that Ealy fits the NFL's current trend of finding base DEs that can shift inside on pass-rushing downs, Cosell mentioned Seattle's Michael Bennett as an example"

Greg Cosell on Ealy:
"I wouldn't necessarily call him explosive, he'll need work to become a true pass rusher. .. I think that Ealy is probably similar to (Bennett) in the way that he'd be utilized in the NFL. A defensive end in the base 4-3 front, who probably moves inside to defensive tackle in the nickel four-man front, or the dime four-man front," Cosell told Midday 180 Radio. "I think that's the kind of player he is."

”Kony has the ability to be a 4-3 defensive end... but he’s got the ability to go inside as well, which is huge,” Gettleman said. “Kony is very comfortable in there (at DT), He played against his share of big people inside in the SEC, and it was never too big for him. Someone could make the argument that he’s just as productive at the three-technique (DT) as he was outside. That has huge value. ... he can play the three technique (DT) and battle with the big boys," Gettleman said.

that said i can't help but shake my head when people attribute their surviving car crashes to god's protection. more than 3,000 people die in car crashes every day in the u.s…. it seems arrogant to suggest jesus had his hands on your steering wheel but decided to take a smoke break when the other 3,000 careened off a cliff or whatever. oh well, superstitions gonna superstition.

You missed his overall point and understanding that we should all be thankful every second we are alive.. for our life could end in the next second. Which is not superstition, but reality, my friend.

#3128721 Blowout Fallout : Kenny Vaccaro benched

Posted by gettlemanjack on 10 December 2014 - 12:10 PM

I'm also not so sure Vaccaro is as good as some think.

People are a guy who's fast and can hit and automatically think he's a good safety, but there's more to it than that.

Heck, if all it took was a guy who could run fast and make a hit, Charles Godfrey could have been a great safety.

Vaccaro was a once in every five years type talent at safety coming out of Texas He shut down speedy slot reciever Tavon Austin, then shut down big Keenan Allen. Elite coverage skills. Elite instincts. Elite fundamentals. Just as great playing up in the box. Elite everything except measureables (only ran 4.59 forty at combine). Tough as nails. Ultimate competitor. Basically everything you want. If you like football, then you'd like Kenny Vaccaro. Last year as a rookie he was awesome, playing every position in the back 7 as a joker role. His versatility is insane and Ryan did a great job utilizing it. This year, due to the Saints secondary being depleted, they aren't able to use him like they did last year and he's been handcuffed because of that. He has still been missing tackles and missing his gap on some big plays, which is why he's getting benched. It's like Cam, he struggled but bounced back. Vaccaro will too. But they need to get some help in that secondary. Both the other safeties, Byrd and Bush are out. And outside of Keenan Lewis, they have the worst corners in the league.

The bigger news is the Saints cut Joe Morgan. He is a great deep threat for them. Read he missed some meetings, something. Big loss for them. But Nick Toon does look to be stepping up finally, we shall see

#3127883 Who is your final 4

Posted by gettlemanjack on 09 December 2014 - 08:14 PM

Most of those teams do not add much. ... Central Florida, Brigham Young, San Diego State, Cincinnati, and South Florida. My guess is it will be two of those five.

Check this out:

Big XII North
1 Oklahoma
2 Oklahoma State
3 K State
4 Kansas
5 Iowa State
>6 Boise State Broncos
>7 Wyoming Cowboys

Big XII South
1 West Virginia
2 Texas
4 Baylor
5 Texas Tech
>6 New Mexico Lobos
>7 San Diego State Aztecs


The fan map there was done by the New York Times recently. New Mexico, Wyoming and Boise State give you three whole states with no competition from any other pro or college teams in the state.

Plus New Mexico borders Texas and creates a rivalry between border states. Not to mention all the Mexicans in Texas will get a kick of a school called "New Mexico" in their conference.

Wyoming and Boise State are border states so you add another border rivalry. Plus those two have awesome uniforms. Plus they have names that go with the Big XII: Broncos and Cowboys

Boise State already has a good football program. As for Wyoming: last year, they only lost 34-37 at Nebraska. In 2008, Wyoming won 13-7 at Tennessee. In 2007, Wyoming beat a 9-4 Virginia team 23-3. In 2005, Wyoming won 24-14 at Ole Miss. In 2004, Wyoming beat Ole Miss 37-32 and beat UCLA in the bowl 24-21. In 2001, they only lost to an 8-4 Texas A&M team 20-28

San Diego State and New Mexico are top basketball schools with top basketball arenas (Viejas Arena in San Diego and The Pit in Albuquerque) and the two have a huge rivalry between them already, adding another great rivalry to the conference

In football, New Nexico recently got Bob Davie as their coach so they have a big name there. In football tradition, their big name is Brian Urlacher.

In football, the San Diego State Aztecs are on the rise, having gone to five straight bowl games (the job Brady Hoke did at San Diego St got him hired by Michigan, he got them to the first bowl of their current streak, the next four bowls were after Hoke). This year SDSU only lost 27-31 at UNC. Last year they only lost 30-34 vs Oregon State, and they beat Boise State. In 2012, they won in Boise vs an 11-2 Boise State team...and only lost 12-21 at Washington. In 2011, they beat Washington State 42-24. In 2010, they only lost 24-27 at Mizzou (Missouri went 10-3) and they only lost 35-40 at TCU (TCU was 13-0 that year)...and they only lost 34-38 vs a 10-3 Utah team. In 2008, they only lost 13-21 at Notre Dame. In 2006, they only lost 0-14 at Wisconsin (who went 12-1 that year). In 2005 they only lost 20-23 to an 11-1 TCU team. In 2004, they only lost 21-24 at Michigan (who went 9-3). In 2003, they only lost 13-16 at Ohio State (who went 11-2)

The Aztecs play in the Chargers Qualcomm Stadium (capacity 70,561), so you add an NFL stadium to the conference (one that is home to both the Holiday Bowl (Nebraska vs USC this year) and Poinsettia Bowl (Navy vs San Diego State this year). Plus, San Diego State adds great football history: the legendary Don Coryell was 104-19-2 as SDSU's coach from 1961-1972 and John Madden was one of his assistant coaches at SDSU. Joe Gibbs played for him at SDSU and was then one of his assistant coaches at SDSU.

Sean Payton began his coaching career at SDSU. Herm Edwards played for SDSU, so did Marshall Faulk.

#3124160 Who is your final 4

Posted by gettlemanjack on 07 December 2014 - 09:59 PM

I am curious, who would your four have been and why?

We should have a 6-team or 8-team playoff this year. As it is with the 4-team playoff, the decision to leave out TCU and Baylor is an easy one when you consider that:

all six had to play a schedule that started the weekend of Sat Aug 30 (Sun Aug 31 for Baylor) and ended the weekend of Sat Dec 6 (Fri Dec 5 for Oregon). And during that stretch, FSU/Bama/Oregon/Ohio State had to play 13 games with only two bye weeks, while TCU/Baylor only had to play 12 games with three bye weeks. Obviously TCU/Baylor had an unfair advantage and should be disqualified. It would be like if you had six hurdlers race 100 meters, while 4 had to jump 13 hurdles while the other two only had to jump 12 hurdles. Or it would be like if you had six sprinters race 100 meters, and two of then got an 8-meter head start and only had to sprint 92 meters to the finish.

like the Chairman of the Committee said: "Well I'll say this, we always tried to call upon those coaches that have been in those trenches and won those games and been involved. So the coaches' opinions are important and valuable to all..we make sure we called upon those coaches to get that input and they were very forthright in sharing their views."

Obviously Saban/Meyer/Fisher/Helfrich argued how unfair it was that that was they had to play, prepare, and game-plan for 13 opponents over the same stretch of time that Baylor/TCU only had to play, prepare, and game-plan for 12 opponents, how unfair it was Baylor/TCU got three bye weeks, while they only got two, how unfair it was that with Baylor/TCU getting 12 games/3 bye weeks to their 13 games/2 bye weeks, that Baylor/TCU had less chance of getting beat, less chance of injuries, more rest and time to heal, etc.

The counter-argument is that TCU/Baylor had to jump 12 hurdles that were a tougher combined challenge than the 13 hurdles FSU/Ohio State had to jump, and that's a valid point and made it a tough discussion. But having to study and game-plan for 12 opponents isn't as tough as 13, having three bye weeks is still way easier than only getting two, the injury risk vs 12 opponents is less than vs 13...so TCU/Baylor had an unfair advantage and should be disqualified.

On top of that, FSU/Ohio State have much more NFL talent, much bigger fanbases, much better football history/prestige (both in recent history and all-time history), etc

The only thing i would change is i would make it:
FSU vs Ohio State
Bama vs Oregon
for no good reason other than my personal enjoyment

#3123266 Who is your final 4

Posted by gettlemanjack on 07 December 2014 - 04:53 PM

you cannot look at it like eight percent like all games are equal. The other four played top teams in that extra game and did it on a neutral site.

I'm using 8 percent to mean a big deal, not a little deal. Yes, if TCU and Baylor had played a 13th game against each other on a neutral site Saturday, the winner of that game would easily be in the playoffs.

#3122939 Who is your final 4

Posted by gettlemanjack on 07 December 2014 - 04:04 PM

They make it clear they penalized TCU/Baylor for playing 12 games instead of 13 like everyone else. Which is only fair. What's that, 8 percent more games everyone had to play than TCU/Baylor?
