#3023794 Burfict (Scumbag) is appealing his fine - Get out the pitchforks

The NFL's disciplinary system is ridiculously out of whack right now.

Boy, this quote from the PFT story just says it all.

(Burfict) leads the team in penalties this year, even though he’s only played one full game.




#3023503 WR Stat Tracker

It took Brenton Bersin just 5 games to catch more passes than Armanti Edwards did in five years.

 

Edwards still has 38 more receiving yards (121) but that's primarily because he had one catch for 82 yards.

 

I expect Bersin will eclipse his yardage mark before long too.

You act like people don't compare stats lol, don't give me that line


I don't really give a rat's ass about people's comparisons.

Win the games. Screw what people think.

Popularity only matters in marketing. Not on the field

Quarterbacks compete against defenses, not other quarterbacks.

This is like the 4th post I've seen from you in two days involving a parrot lol. Not knocking it, but I have a lot of questions.


I'm a longtime parrot owner :lol:

Feel free to ask whatever you want. Not here, though. Don't wanna derail someone else's thread.


#3022114 LaFell

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 October 2014 - 11:18 AM

Even as a Panther, LaFell would have a 'teaser game' every once in a while. You'd watch and think 'wow, the lights finally came on' and raise your expectations. Then next game it was back to his usual form.

LaFell is still the same guy he always was. He just gets paid a lot more.


#3022012 Come on, Gerald. You're a Buc!

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 October 2014 - 10:34 AM

What are you doing acting like a good sport, a decent human being and a mature adult?

 

Gerald McCoy responds to criticism of his good sportsmanship

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy on Tuesday shot back at detractors who say he’s wrong for helping opponents up off the ground after a play.

“If anyone has a problem with me helping people up off the field, that’s a personal problem,’’ McCoy said after the first of two bye-week practices at One Buc Place. “It’s something you have to deal with.’’

McCoy’s habit of extending a hand to opponents to help them off the ground came up earlier this week when former Bucs guard Ian Beckles, now a talk radio host on 620 WDAE, questioned it.

During an interview with Bucs radio analyst Dave Moore, a former Bucs tight end, Beckles asked Moore what he thought of the habit. Moore defended McCoy, saying the habit had no impact on McCoy’s play between the whistles.

“If people really pay attention, then you would also notice that when someone on the opposing team gets hurt, most of time there’s one person who walks on the field and says a prayer, and that’s me,’’ McCoy said.

“That’s who I am and that’s who I’m going to be. If you don’t like it, get over it. I’m going to help people up because I’m a good sportsman and because football is temporary; sports is temporary.

“People have families and kids, wives. And 10 years down the line … what about that guy who you’re so concerned about how hard he’s going and he can’t play with his kids because he’s out there killing himself? That’s what I’m concerned about.’’

McCoy further defended his commitment to the game and to winning by pointing out that he was right back at work a day after his wife gave birth to twins this year.

“On July 15 I had twins,’’ McCoy said. “On July 16 I was up here in the rain running gassers and hitting the bags. If you know another person doing that, then you can talk to me about how nice I am.’’

 

McCoy had indicated previously that his willingness to be a good sport had drawn harsh criticism from former coach Greg Schiano.  If it's still happening even with Schiano gone, sounds like it might be an organizational thing (kind of like the Saints and Bengals).

 

It makes it easier to cheer for the Panthers knowing garbage like this doesn't happen here. 

 

And yeah, I'd welcome McCoy on this team if he ever left Tampa.

 

(would probably cost too much, though)

A rookie being inconsistent?

 

NO WAY! :unsure:

Probably shouldn't be surprised at this coming from a group that thinks knocking out your wife should only cost you two games.




#3021943 No along the sidelines Bengals edition?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 October 2014 - 10:03 AM

There isn't one. Not sure if I will do another. They are a ton of work but yield relatively little discussion or page views. Splitting gameday images up in a few articles seems to encourage more discussion on the images and interest.

 

Also, the people in the All Pro forum are the reason I was able to fly to Cinci and am able to fly to Green Bay this weekend and provide any coverage at all. It was rare in years past I could provide any away game coverage. I don't feel bad by providing them with extra coverage that they paid for.

 

People forget (or don't care) that there's an actual person behind the screen names.

 

While I recognize that you've invested a lot into this site, I also know you still have a life outside of here.  You've got a business to run, a family to take care of and kids to raise (yours are somewhere in the five to ten range if I remember correctly).  Those things have to come first.

 

It's something I understand better lately because having a girlfriend with two teenage kids has rearranged my priorities quite a bit.  I used to do full gameday breakdowns, but those were a lot of effort and these days I just don't have the time anymore.  Haven't even been to camp the last few years.  Again, that's just real life.

 

Still think the site is great.  And just for full disclosure; I'm not a paying member (have thought about it).

I wonder what Biscuit is thinking of right now.
