Mr. Scot - always a fount of knowledge. Creates good offseason threads.

Gentleman is too conservative. He's a great talent evaluator but if you never bring in even mid level contributors, you're not going to win a Lombardi. Just look at The Patriots. They build through the draft AND free agency. They're never in cap trouble and they're always in the mix for a super bowl.


#3238159 UPDATED! Huddle Mods Needed

Posted by The Link on 11 February 2015 - 08:55 AM

I browse the huddle all day. Typically view every topic.

Previous experience as a mod on a now defunct board. Ban hammer skills are still epic.

Well spoken, reasonably minded individual.

Will bribe you with Apple pie.


#3230132 Epica: The Perfect Symphonic Metal Band

Posted by The Link on 03 February 2015 - 07:00 PM

I could never get in to power metal or any of it's offshoots (Symphonic Black Metal being the exception). Not knocking it, just ain't my thing. Give me late 90's - mid 00's Opeth and I'm good.

One of the best live albums ever.

Gettleman won't pursue any of them. He'll wait until after the first wave of FA and go shopping for players of marginal ability willing to sign cap friendly deals.

Okay,

Luck is ________ than Cam.


A much better passer?


#3198223 Car/Home insurance

Posted by The Link on 11 January 2015 - 04:49 PM

As a Metlife employee, I can tell you not to bother with them. We're not very competitive in the NC market, we're extremely conservative with our risk assessment, and will most definitely cost more than State Farm. It's very good insurance and if you can get a Grand Protect policy you'll have an unparalleled amount of coverage, but you're definitely going to pay for it.

Boob man. There is nothing better than a great rack.




#3131096 Kony ealy at DT

Posted by The Link on 12 December 2014 - 02:11 PM

It took CJ and Hardy both about 3 years to be consistent, would it not be prudent to extend Ealy the same courtesy before we criticize him??

It's too early. Firing a GM after two years is shortsighted and asinine.




#3100980 What do you need to run a West Coast offense?

Posted by The Link on 22 November 2014 - 05:50 PM

I understand 'stretch zone' is what they're running in Jacksonville too.  I honestly wasn't aware Kubiak was using it, though I assumed zone blocking based on his scheme.

 

And although we haven't really discussed it, a zone scheme might go a long way toward fixing our vulnerability to 3-4 defenses.

 

 

 

 
 

 

That, and you can basically plug in any RB and have them be effective. Pick a hole, make your cut and hit it hard.




#3100963 What do you need to run a West Coast offense?

Posted by The Link on 22 November 2014 - 05:20 PM

Gary Kubiak or any smart offensive mind would tweak their version of the WCO to accentuate Cams talent.so the real question is what are his attributes or strengths not weaknesses.also,i just don't buy it,that Cam can't make the short screen passes or any pass for that matter not with his arm strength.

 

I agree that we need someone to accentuate Cam's talent (Strong arm and very mobile). However, being that the principle of ANY WCO is to opt for short passes in lieu of running, often times requiring that a QB show great anticipation by throwing the ball when the WR isn't open out of his route yet, I don't think that will be doing Cam any favors. He's shown a lack of anticipation, tendency to throw high, and inability to get through all of his reads his whole career. That's not debatable. It's just how he plays. If we want to play to his strengths, we need to run a system that uses the running game to set up the intermediate/deep play action pass. His arm strength and threat as a runner plays right in to an offense like that, and I believe he can become an Elite QB if it were to play out that way.

 

This is kind of pointless though, because we don't have the talent around him needed to run either of those offenses. We need a much better line and some more speed at receiver.
