#3136330 Post Your Best Interview Advice/Tips

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 14 December 2014 - 10:19 PM

Can anyone else weigh in on this? My dad seems to think the "we have our guy" line means I have the job all but locked up but why not just came out and say that if it were true?

 

Don't have much to add, but I hope you get the job dude!




#3136273 So is Cam already out for next week?

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 14 December 2014 - 09:46 PM

I think we should have both be active just to fug with the Browns.

 

Both usually are active...




#3132392 Are #70 and #68 the best rookie OG tandem in the NFL?

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 13 December 2014 - 07:04 PM

I have been as critical of this o-line as anybody. The Norwell-Kalil-Turner trio we have right now is so much better than the Amini-Kalil-Valasco trio we started the year with. Norwell and Turner have made this line better. If you can't see that improvement then whatevs. Bell needs to be replaced and RT needs to be evaluated after the season.

 

I don't think one person has said that they haven't seen improvement. But Norwell didn't even play the first 5 or 6 weeks and Turner was out with injury for a handful of weeks. Now that we're seeing some consistency in personnel hopefully we'll see more consistency in performance, but I'm not going to jump the gun yet.

Today I learned two games = emerged.


#3119961 Things you see in this video....

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 05 December 2014 - 09:45 PM

Has no one ever head of crossing routes? There are countless combinations and every team uses them. One receiver goes high (in this case Benjamin), one goes low (Olsen), and they'll necessarily cross in the middle of the field. That's called the mesh. But when Olsen and KB mesh they're almost 10 yards apart--the video angle is tricky. That's plenty of distance between the two crossing guys.

Stewart's just running a Texas route. That play isn't inherently flawed. Look at where they are when Cam throws the ball. Plenty of space between them. The Vikes were in what looks like it could be a cover 3, and crossing patterns are typically more effective against man defense.

I don't like Shula as much as the next guy, but the design itself doesn't doom this play.

 

The offensive line protected very well and to the guy that said Trai Turner looked like he didn't know who to block, that's crock of poo. It's a man pass pro scheme, but with only 4 rushers you obviously have an extra guy. Kalil and Turner both have the DT on the snap, but the DT makes a move into the A gap and Kalil squares him up. Then Trai rubs off that guy and goes to help the right tackle handle Brian Robinson--that's good guard play. They're coached to do that and he did it well. Norwell is the only guy that really gets close to being beat, but he still protected well on the play.

 

Third, Cam's feet are doing what they should be doing. That's all there is too it. There were no happy feet, there were just good feet. If you watch his feet they move with the direction of the receiver he's targeting. His shoulders are nice and level when he releases and he doesn't deliver a bad ball either. If he throws it a little closer to Olsen's body I think he definitely brings it in. Nonetheless, it's catchable--it hits Olsen in the hands--but the Vikings are right on top of it (again, this play works best against man) and the DB is able to break up the pass. Good defense, and a poor play for us to be running against that defense.

 

That's what I saw at least.

In Minneapolis currently--going to the Vikings/Packers game tomorrow--and it's colder than a witch's ***. But I did win $1000 at Cantebury Park yesterday, so that doesn't suck.




#3088080 Fan Duel now up!~

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 15 November 2014 - 06:59 PM

5 bucks. Use the promo code and they will match your deposit.

 

This is sort of misleading. It's not like you can deposit 10 bucks and 20 bucks will show up in your account ready to use. They essentially refund 4 cents of every dollar that you pay in entry fees.

Most people will probably never see their full bonus and the rest will have redeposited 4 or 5 times before they do.




#3084942 Lol at Steve Smith Doing a Great Job Trolling Us.

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 13 November 2014 - 12:25 AM

you must be reading something else than what was on the link. not much there, certainly nothing making an %$# of himself. 

 

I don't know why Steve feels the need to continue to talk about the Panthers. We played them 6 weeks ago and we released him 6 months ago. It's time to move on. And it doesn't do him any favors when he does talk about us. Even if unintentionally, his statements sometimes alienate the very fans that supported him for more than a decade. It's not cool, it's not professional, and it's not necessary any more.

 

I also thought it was a bit tacky for him to talk about the money.




#3082765 Ron Rivera's Coaching Hires (and Fires)

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 11 November 2014 - 08:34 PM

And JR approved it all.

 

That's cause he's not a shitty boss. A good owner should hire a head coach and general manager he trusts to run the football side of the organization, and then he should give them the freedom to do just that.




#3039497 Tryout News

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 23 October 2014 - 11:58 PM

Well here is my concern with DG and what i consider mismanagement of the oL,is the fact that he has clearly fielded an incompetent tandem which consist of no other than Byron Bell and Nate Chandler,,which is a decision soley based upon his (DG) ideology or best thinking that there were in FACT no better alternatives in free agency?

 

We made Anthony Collins an offer during free agency. He decided to sign with Tampa. I don't know how close our offer was to theirs, but we did make an honest attempt to sign at least one decent veteran tackle. It can rightly be noted that Collins isn't having the best season in Tampa, but who knows how it would've turned out if he chose to sign with us.

 

or the draft??or UDFAs?

 

You name the top 10 tackles in the league and I'll show you probably 9 or 10 first round picks. The marquee guys were off the board by the time we picked at number 28. And Gettleman was pretty clear that he thought the other tackles weren't better than what we had. He may have been right. Of the guys who would've been available, Bitonio is playing guard instead of tackle, Kouandjio hasn't played a down all season (Buffalo is going to try him out at guard), and here's a fine display of Morgan Moses' awesomeness:

Undrafted free agents? That's a place you were hoping to find a guy who could replace Jordan Gross? Talk about a needle in a haystack. You need to understand how difficult it is for an undrafted guy to even make the team, much less start and perform at a high level during his first year.




#2998895 All three of our TOs

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 05 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

The first one is the only one I can question. Cam's arm was not going forward.


#2979515 Going to the Baltimore game anyone Tailgating

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 26 September 2014 - 07:27 PM

All right, it's official! I'll be in Section 103.  See you all there!

 

What row? Maine and I are in 103 too.




#2974191 Ravens game

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 22 September 2014 - 09:43 PM

I'm really considering making my way to Baltimore. It's an easy train/bus ride for me but right now I'd be going alone. Most likely would be my only chance to see them this season since we do not play either the Giants or Jets at MetLife. 

 

Look me up, man. I'll pick you up from the train station. Just don't make fun of my hybrid.




#2971355 We will rebound. (Keeping the faith)

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 21 September 2014 - 10:57 PM

We'll learn a whole lot about our team next week when we see how they respond against a good Baltimore team. Can't wait.




#2934912 What we learned about today's game against Tampa Bay

Posted by neverlosethefeeling on 07 September 2014 - 07:48 PM

Is it cool to give Gettleman some love now? Cason got a pick, Harper got a pick, Benwikere recovered a fumble and the o-line didn't poo the bed. Cotch and Avant weren't spectacular but it's been mentioned elsewhere that they had a combined 5 receptions on 5 targets, so they were reliable and they were consistent. Kelvin was just awesome.

 

I think Gman knows what he's doing.
