#3325165 Proehl drops a bunch of nuggets on WFNZ 610 AM The Fan (link and summary)

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 04:52 PM

I'd love to see a trip log of his for the last 2 months haha

 

Bet he's got a ton of frequent flyer miles.




#3325152 Justin Hardy route tree breakdown

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 04:46 PM

As to the OP, good breakdown.

 

Was mentioned in the other thread that Proehl pointed out the pro route tree is way more complicated.  Route versatility is definitely something you want in any receiver you draft.




#3325140 Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

Maybe "trash" is going too far but there were years of frustration where i had to put up with Jake. It wasnt the best of times. I never liked him as a football player. Im sure he was a fantastic fella though

 

Every player has ups and downs, Cam, Luke and all other current Panthers included.  Jake lost a lot after his surgery.  Thought he'd gotten it back in 08. but it didn't happen.  Cest la vie.

 

DeAngelo Williams was a prime example.  He did a lot of good for this team even though he declined in recent years.  Calling him 'trash' would be equally off base.

 

Likewise, Jake was part of some of the best moments this franchise ever had.  The win against the Jags, X-Clown, heck that whole magic season, and he played lights out in the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

 

You have to put it all in perspective.  Yeah, there were rough times, but there was plenty of good too.

 

That's not 'trash'.

So should I read into that - Bersin on the roster next year?

 

I wouldn't put any money on that.

That was an unforgivably dumbass play call.




#3324849 Latest mock from Will Brinson (multiple trades)

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 12:53 PM

I could also see us trading up with Pitt if Gurley is still on the board to take him ahead of Zona. Wonder how the board would react to that one.

 

Right now it seems like pretty much nobody believes Gurley makes it past the Chargers at 17.

Negative

 

Ghost Rider?




#3324819 Panthers talk to Greg Jennings

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 12:36 PM

the way this has gone, that seems like last offseason.

 

I'll be happy when it's done, one way or another.

 

Still won't surprise me if him signing elsewhere ignites the idiot fringe into screaming doom and gloom.

the "weapons" comparison gets on my nerves because seattle runs a shanahan style west coast offense in the general sense. that's a system that leans on a strong rush attack and doesn't need an elite vertical threat to be successful. a wide receiver who can't read coverages and would struggle with the plethora of option routes in that system would hurt a lot worse than one who can do all those things but isn't a freak athlete. meanwhile here in charlotte we had mike shula trying to run a coryell type system with byron bell at left tackle and jerricho cotchery and kelvin benjamin split out wide.

plus wilson is the absolute undisputed king of horseshit when it comes to 50/50 balls and ducks lobbed into triple coverage so there's that


I was wondering if anyone was going to bring up the system comparison.

For whatever you think of Wilson, it's pretty well known that West Coast type systems always inflate a quarterback's stats. That's why you have guys who look like world beaters in Philadelphia suddenly look like egg beaters when they go somewhere else.


#3323441 Hernandez Gets life in Prison without the possibility of Parole

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 12:32 PM

I heard from multiple legal experts on sports radio talk about how it was specifically not a slam dunk case and he could walk.

It's not just my words. There are lots of articles online stating the same.


To be fair, though, those were written before the verdict and the jury interviews


#3323410 The Case for Agholor using Gettlelogic

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 12:07 PM

You're right. Got him mixed up with another Auburn player. Thanks for the heads up. Correction made.


Former Auburn TE Philip Lutzenkirchen was killed in a car accident last year.

I'm guessing that's who you were thinking of.


#3323114 Hypothetical Derek Anderson to the Bears

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 05:49 AM

Moving from 25 to 7 would take something like a 2nd rounder and a 1st next year.


Kinda glad we no longer have a GM with a penchant for giving up future first rounders.


#3322779 Jaelen Strong has fractured wrist, likely needs surgery

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 April 2015 - 05:03 PM

Broke my index finger playing OL. Got it stuck in the DLs facemask. Finger went to my thumb if you put your hands facing out like a high five. The ligament tore a piece of bone off my finger.

Taped that poo and was fine.


Ouch.

I've had the old 'finger stuck in a facemask' before. Hurt like hell but thankfully didn't break it.

Even if he falls I still wouldn't count on is taking him if us passing on Keenan Allen is any indication


Good lord :wacko:

To be clear, "broken bone in the hand" is not the same as "broken hand".

I actually played with a broken bone in my hand in high school. Never noticed it unless you hit that particular spot on my hand, which didn't happen all that often.

That said, I wasn't a receiver.
