#2656944 Nawrocki hates everybody

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 02:16 PM

Johnny Football will always be hated by the subset of college football fans that want their QB's to pretend to be humble and love Jesus while they beat their girlfriends and date rape half the campus. I can't wait for him to make even more enemies in the NFL.

 

Somebody tell me what he's done wrong other than be honest? People act like he's the only college football player living his weekends at the bar.

 

I think Manziel is a jerk, but that's not why I wouldn't draft him.

 

I don't think he'll succeed at the NFL level based on his football skills.

 

He's exactly the kind of college QB I've seen plenty of times look great at the college level but fail in the pros.

 

 




#2656909 Pre-Combine Mock -- Panthers Cream their Pants Edition

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 02:01 PM

I'm not wild about Lee, still don't trust WR's from USC.

 

Said the same thing elsewhere.

 

I like Allen Robinson a lot.

YIKES...Probably should've rehearsed that.  

 

I don't know that a thousand hours of rehearsal would have made that any better :unsure:
 




#2656860 Current Mock Results from NFL.com

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 01:41 PM

Panthers picks are as follows...

 

Daniel Jeremiah

Fresno State WR Davante Adams

 

Charles Davis

Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde

 

Bucky Brooks

Oregon State  WR Brandin Cooks

 

 

NOTES

 

- Jeremiah has Kelvin Benjamin going at #15 to the Steelers, Eric Ebron at #16 to the Ravens, Brandin Cooks at #23 to the Chiefs and has us taking D Adams over Jarvis Landry, whom he projects to the Broncos at #31.

 

- Davis has us taking Hyde over Kelvin Benjamin (#30 to the 49ers) and Allen Robinson (#32 to the Seahawks)

 

- Former Panthers scout Brooks has us choosing Cooks over Kelvin Benjamin, who he projects to the Seahawks.

 

- Charles Davis is the only one who has Penn State's Allen Robinson going in the first round.

 

- All three project Jadaveon Clowney number one and a tackle to the Rams at #2.  Jeremiah and Brooks predict Greg Robinson while Davis says Jake Matthews.

 

- Johnny Manziel is mocked #3 to the Jags by Jeremiah and Davis, #4 to the Browns by Brooks.  Brooks is the only one of the three to predict Teddy Bridgewater higher than Manziel. 




#2656838 How does Gettlemen stack up to other GMs?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 01:25 PM

Early returns are pretty good.

 

Next few years will tell us a lot more.




#2656824 Complete Panthers Combine Preview

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 01:14 PM

I severely doubt we'll draft an OT in the first.

 

WR/TE or DB will be the first pick.

 

I wanna see what we do in free agency before I'm ready to say that.

Forgot to mention the other parallel between them...

Both could place quite highly in a Napoleon Dynamite look-alike contest.

Marqise Lee...

 

History has made me really gun shy on USC receivers.  Anybody got an argument why I shouldn't be?




#2656743 If Greg Hardy were a player at a position of need

Much as I love football. I often find myself very happy that it's not my job to make decisions like this.

Back when I was off on disability, I was misdiagnosed four times.

 

Doctors on TV have all the answers and can solve anything in an hour.  Real world doctors, good as some of them may be, not so much.

The suggestion of doing away with extra points apparently won't be looked at this offseason.

 

Good news.




#2656692 If Greg Hardy were a player at a position of need

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 12:04 PM

But the fact of the matter is he is a DE which isn't a position of need for this team and he arguably isn't even the best DE on the roster + CJ is making big money at that position already.

 

But does defensive end become a position of need if we lose him?

#2656676 Cam Newton Brings Out The Worst In Everyone

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 February 2014 - 11:57 AM

Can we rename this thread to "ITT Watch some asshole make an asshole out of themselves"?

 

That could be the title of half the threads on this board.
 

 

if we are being honest. Cam is cocky, and there is not one fuging thing wrong with that in his chosen profession. it has made him the success he is today.

 

go behind closed doors and see how Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers act. They are the best of the best in the hardest sport in the world.

 

It is all a media game. It's not "maturation" it's just learning the media game. Cam figured that out, when before he could not give a fug. (which was refreshing to me tbh)

 

You and I might define 'cocky' differently, but I just don't see Cam being cocky at all.

 

To me, 'cocky' is someone who spends a lot of time telling everybody how great they are.  I can't recall seeing Newton do that anytime recently.  Steve Smith is most certainly cocky (granted, he can back it up) but Newton?  Don't see it.  Honestly, other than maybe Rivers, i don't see that in most of the other names wither (though I grant Brady is a prick).

 

If you're talking about a cocky quarterback, first example that comes to my mind is Colin Kaepernick.  That borderline irrational public rant about how Richard Sherman was supposedly afraid of him, that screams 'cocky bastard'.  I've even heard Russell Wilson say some things in interviews that could be taken as cocky, though given he just quarterbacked his team to a Super Bowl win, it's kinda tough to be critical.

 

Now Newton is definitely a fun loving guy.  Between his 'Superman' pose and his photobombing and messing with teammates and such, he's clearly a jokester.  When he talks in pressers though, I don't see a whole lot of difference between him and Luke Kuechly.  Both talk about their teammates and shrug off discussions about how great they did/are.  The biggest difference between them would be that while Cam has fun with it, Luke is super intense and probably couldn't tell a good joke with a gun to his head.

 

So yeah, the brash, cocky guy I hear people talking about with Newton?  I'm not seeing him. 

 

Confident?  Sure.  Funny?  Yeah. 

 

Cocky?  No.

Terribly sorry to hear of your loss, dude.

 

There aren't even words for something like that.

 

Prayers from me.
