You rarely get hired your first time out.

I think I am being fooled into thinking it will be ok because there is a fox in it.

 

And just to be 'that guy', he's a raccoon.

If you read that thread title wrong, it sounds like a really painful proposition :blink:

 

Sorry to hear it, Bronn.

Personally speaking, hernias are no fun. Hoping he is okay even if a tweak. a tweak in a hernia hurts like hell

 

Had one some years back.

 

Won't ever forget that feeling :(




#2869154 Our O line is good enough right?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 29 July 2014 - 01:37 PM

Ya know, a little cautious optimism in this area is not so big a stretch as some folks think.

 

If Trai Turner lives up to the first impressions he's given, the interior line could be the best it's been in a while, and that's a pretty big deal.

 

Solid protection inside gives the quarterback the ability to 'step up' in the pocket.  That makes it easier for the tackles to handle speed rushers, especially given that type of pass rusher has a natural tendency to overrun targets sometimes anyway.  Mind you, they still have to be able to stand their ground with power rushers, but these days most of the league's DEs are speed rushers.

 

Add in besides the optimism for the interior line, Nate Chandler looks like he might be a decent LT.  And yes, Bell could be improved.  It's been known to happen.

 

Could they turn out awful?  Sure.  But it's not the slam dunk people make it out to be.

I'm warming to the idea of Chandler at left tackle.

 

I'm very much looking forward to Trai Turner at right guard.

 

And no, it's not impossible to believe Bell might be better than he was before.

#2869089 Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Posted by Mr. Scot on 29 July 2014 - 12:41 PM

We needed the roster spot for preseason games. Unless you want 1st and 2nd string players playing more in preseason and taking a chance on getting hurt to protect that 6th round player that is hurt for the season already.

Does it suck? Sure but Gaffney is not the franchise savior. I think we will manage with the 4 other RBs on the roster

 

I'm not sure our resident Madden champions get how this works in the real world.

I'm remembering some conversations that took place early last season...

 

"Godfrey's hurt?  Dammit.  Who's his backup?  Mike Mitchell?  That scrub we got from the Raiders?  S--t!  We're screwed!"

Where do you get that from? I am sure the Colts, Packers, and Giants would like to disagree with you. They are the teams that are in a whole other category when it comes to injuries in recent years with the Colts leading the way easily almost every year for a decade straight. Hate to say it but the Panthers aren't even close to the most injury riddled team.  

 

Injuries happen to all teams and good teams have the depth to overcome them.  

 

Fan blindness.

 

Pretty sure there's an element of every fanbase that thinks 'we have it worse than every other team in the NFL'.

 

My own take is that it feels like injuries have gone up all over the league since the new practice rules were implemented with the last CBA.  I will say that's just a feeling though.  I haven't done the research to back it up.

 

I do think that at some point you'll see someone in the media - or maybe even the league itself - investigate that question.

#2868288 The reason why D.G had to put Gaffney on waivers....

Posted by Mr. Scot on 28 July 2014 - 06:24 PM

Gettleman did something every team in the league does on a regular basis with rarely anything bad ever coming of it.

The alternative would have been to keep an injured player on the roster through the entire preseason, which would have meant someone else who was healthy getting cut.

And all that just to protect a 6th round pick who was going on injured reserve anyway from something that hardly ever happens.

The whole idea is just silly.

Gettleman is really having a horrible year. I don't think it's possible for him to have handled the personnel decisions this entire offseason worse than he did.


I hope you're being sarcastic, because otherwise this is a really dumb post.

I thought Gaffney had potential too, but the people freaking out over losing a 6th round pick who blew a knee in his first ever practice like it's some huge tragedy are making foolsof themselves.
