Vic quit on our team during Summer workouts 1) because he was a diva and 2) because he had an issue with some coaches. A week or two later he decided he wanted to come back. Our head coach left it up to the seniors (myself along with 3 current NFL players among them) to vote on whether or not we wanted him back on the team. We voted to allow him back on the team, but only if he was willing to make up the work he'd missed. Basically we just wanted him to run some extra gassers/gut busters after practice for a couple weeks to prove he was committed to us. When he heard our stipulation he was not willing to come back on those terms and wound up transferring schools. A year later he was kicked off of that team.
I hope he's really grown up since then (even though he was arrested in April) and none of us ever cared to keep in touch with him after that, but he doesn't have the character of a Panthers player.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Gettleman said in his pre-draft presser "I will not be afraid to draft a 'blue goose' player" and mentioned specifically defensive line among other positions. The guy says what he means and means what he says and people still have a hard time wrapping their minds around what we're doing. He's laid out the plan for you, what else can he do? You're only setting yourself up for failure by listening to what Gettleman says and then continuing to believe that we'll do the opposite.
If we were going to attempt to trade Hardy then why would we be advancing his salary? WIth no advance, if a trade succeeds at some point later in the off-season then his next team would be responsible for his full contract. But if we're paying him 1.3 now, that money wouldn't be reimbursed to us or credited to our cap if he's traded, right? That 1.3 million would, in essence, be dead money. So, all that is to say that Hardy's either playing this year under the tag or we'll reach a long term deal. A trade now doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
Sounds difficult for someone as computer illiterate as myself but I'll give it a shot!
If you want to do it the way PhillyB suggested then on your macbook pro (also what I use) press command+shift+4 and it'll bring up a crosshair that you can then, while pressing down the trackpad, drag over the desired area you want to capture. It should save automatically as a jpeg on your desktop. From there you can crop/format/resize the images if necessary and combine them into a single document. The downfall of this method is that it will make your new document unsearchable because they're just images, but at least you'll have it all in the same document.
I read an article not too long ago wherein a former GM was interviewed about off-season strategy. It was pretty remarkable because he talked about changing it up from year to year to keep other teams from really knowing what they wanted to do. IIRC teams are allowed to have private workouts with about 30 players. This GM mentioned that some years they'd bring in guys they were actually interested in and some they'd bring in a bunch of guys they'd already eliminated/knew they weren't going to draft so other GMs wouldn't know who they were actually going for.
Last year we drafted 2 out of about 50 we had pre-draft visits with: KK and Kugbila. We brought KK and 26 other players in for private workouts, and Kugbila was not among them.
It'll be interesting to see another year of Gettleman drafts and how these trends start to play themselves out.
