#2627377 Cordarrelle Patterson is an asshat.

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 12:32 PM

If you're an adult then here's what you do in this situation... you have your female friend call the police and report an assault while you start taking down the names of witnesses. Then you inform Mr. Patterson that you have reported his actions to the authorities and they are on the way and you watch him and his posse scamper like rats. 

 

I'm 6'6", 300 lbs and I was a bouncer in some pretty rough DC night clubs for 6 years... so I've been in plenty of fights and seen this exact situation unfold a thousands times (several of the clubs I worked in were frequented by both Redskins and Wizards players and I actually took part in throwing Brian Mitchell and Juwan Howard out one night).

 

The only way to "win" in this situation, even if you are a professional MMA fighter, is to do the right thing and get the authorities involved.There's nothing wrong with stepping in and preventing your female friend from further harm, but the minute you do anything to encourage further aggression you are putting yourself on the wrong side of the law. 

 

It's not about being a "man" it's about being smart. 

 

I'm reminded of the "Road House" scene where Swayze tricks a guy into leaving the club rather than fighting him.

 

True tough guys don't go looking for fights.  Guys who are looking to prove they're tough guys are the ones who do.
 




#2627333 Colin Kaepernicks post game attire

What makes him a punk? Oh, I forgot, he doesn't act like Andrew Luck, right?

 

Lemme guess...You're what, 12?  Can't be more than 13, I'd imagine.  As has been mentioned, you need to quit being so insecure about Andrew Luck.  Most on here know there's no reason to be, but some obviously still don't get it :rolleyes:

 

As to Kaepernick, first off, there's this:

 

In fact, the guy you're working so hard to defend actually mocked Cam Newton after scoring a touchdown in the divisional game...

 

And that's not the first time.  He was a jerk to some of his own fans last offseason.  And there are other incidents if you care to look it up.  I doubt you do, since gathering actual facts doesn't seem especially important to you (no shock for a kid your age).

 

Our own quarterback, on the flip side, has been a great example of a classy individual in all his dealings, including his reaction to Kaepernick being a douche.

 

Why, when this team has a guy like that, you wanna go about defending a jerk like Kaepernick, I can't imagine, other than the same general immaturity you've shown on a regular basis (again, not surprising for a kid).

 

 

Like I said Sunday...contrarian poster

 

I'd say "kid who doesn't know any better" is probably more like it.

 

Would hate to think of posts showing so little knowledge, understanding and maturity coming from someone older than 13.




#2627311 David Newton ranking our 21 FAs by importance (updated 21 thru 5)

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 11:47 AM

At first that seemed absurd, but the fact is Lafell is supposed to be our clear cut #2 option.  When Smith missed the Falcons game, Lafell was almost invisible.  That tells me that he is so far from being a #1 option, he can't possibly be a solid #2.

 

You won't see me crying if they let Lafell walk.

 

For as big as he is, he should be a much more physical receiver, but he isn't.  If anything, he's a finesse receiver.

 

I say let him go.
 




#2627297 Is a lack of receivers really the problem?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 11:36 AM

Fans are always looking for "the" problem.

 

What they pretty much always find is "a" problem.

Maybe its Cams personal preference to dress like that after a game. Again, what did Tom Brady wear after the game?

 

But don't you understand that there is such thing as being over dressed? A freaking suit for a 5 minute interview? Get real! Those reporters interview those players topless in the locker room all the time.

Gave in to curiosity and checked out the article.

 

Nearly every one of those suggestions is pretty much awful.




#2627251 Ron Borges dismantles Belichick

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 11:01 AM

It's no shock that a fair share of football writers and analysts, especially in the Boston area, rarely say anything critical of Bill Belichick.  The Patriots coach is known to be a tad surly and his long record of dominating a weak division winning makes it difficult to find fault.

 

Unless you're Ron Borges...

 

Borges is an award winning writer who's been covering football since I was a kid, and he's not the type to be easily intimidated.

 

For evidence of that, check out this Boton herald article where he accuses Belichick of using the Wes Welker hit on Aqib Talib to deflect blame from the lousy job he did coaching the Patriots against Peyton Manning and the Broncos.  And Borges points out this isn't the first time Belichick's used this tactic (and criticizes his colleagues for playing along with it).

 

It's a pretty savage read.

 

Borges: Bill Belichick’s game deflects blame, proves again he’s master of misdirection
 

 

Bill Belichick learned most of what he knows about coaching from his longtime mentor Bill Parcells, and one of those things is the art of deflection and deceit. Both were on full display Monday morning when, as his team had done on Sunday, Belichick came up small on a big stage.

Less than 24 hours after having seen his defense and his game plan systematically destroyed by the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, Belichick avoided explaining much about what had gone wrong by opening his remarks with a false accusation that Wes Welker made “a deliberate play to take out Aqib (Talib).”

 

It was a brilliantly deceitful statement that changed the narrative from “Why can’t you rebuild your defense?” to whether or not his former player purposely tried to injure an ex-teammate. Belichick understood it didn’t matter that what he said was not only asinine but also a lie, nor did it matter that it made him appear petty and classless, because after a loss what’s new about that?

What it did was put the media focus on something that didn’t happen rather than all the things that did, one of which being that Welker went on to the Super Bowl while Belichick’s handpicked and overpaid replacement for him, Danny Amendola, dropped the only pass thrown to him Sunday and then disappeared like too many of his teammates.

It also avoided a logical question: “If you care so much about Talib, why didn’t you give him a contract last year?”

Belichick may hate the media, but he knows how to manipulate it. He knows today’s media has the attention span of a fruit fly and in too many cases the depth of a thimble. That being how it is, distracting them was a lot easier than distracting Peyton Manning or “Pot Roast” Knighton.

 

“No attempt to get open,” Belichick said of Welker’s block/pick on Talib that drew no penalty flag because it wasn’t a penalty. What it was was exactly what Belichick had taught Welker to do the previous six years.

“I’ll let the league handle the discipline on that play,” Belichick said as he continued to prevaricate, knowing full well there would be no such discipline because the play was legal and a regular practice of his own wide receivers. “It’s not for me to decide but it’s one of the worst plays I’ve seen. That’s all I’ll say about that.”

The proper follow-up which never came was this: “Bill, did you have your eyes closed when Rodney Harrison and Brandon Meriweather were illegally decapitating people for you and paying thousands of dollars in fines for it?”

No one asked.

 

Worse for Belichick, a former player who has admitted to being a big admirer of his, Donte’ Stallworth, also took him to task. Stallworth, who twice played for Belichick in New England and greeted him warmly in Miami this year, tweeted: “I have nothing but love and respect for Bill Belichick, but he’s absolutely wrong about Wes Welker’s hit on Aqib Talib . . . and he knows it.”

It was the latter comment that was most damning because it illustrated how petty a little man Belichick can be. In Belichick’s world (aka “The Twilight Zone,” NFL edition) he created Wes Welker. He brought him in from oblivion (or at least Miami) and turned him from an afterthought into a star. The fact that he never paid him that way only made it better until Welker refused to play along and forced Belichick to franchise him for $9 million. Things went downhill from there until last winter, when he gave Welker an offer he knew he’d refuse and moved on.

Only problem is a year later Welker’s moving on to the Super Bowl while a guy once known as a defensive genius can’t seem to rebuild the defense that once won him Super Bowls.

 

Never one for answering real questions, Belichick avoided that by accusing Welker of something he knew was not true. What he knew was true was that it would become the lead story the next day, locally and nationally, and so it was.

The headlines were about “nasty hits” even though none happened. The story of the real nastiness in Denver, the shoddy play of his team, was buried inside. By the time people seek answers about that, Belichick will say he’s “moved on to 2014,” a process he began yesterday by heading to the Senior Bowl practices, where he won’t have to answer questions about anything.

Bill Belichick may be petty and he may have stuck it to Wes Welker one last time, but you gotta hand it to him. He’s as good at deflection as Richard Sherman.

 

I doubt you've read or heard anything this critical of Belichick in a while.




#2626994 Realistic ideas for the panthers this offseason?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 12:11 AM

Try to lure Marc Ross away from the Giants with a new title in our front office. Start grooming him as Dave Gettleman's eventual successor (ala Eric DeCosta in Baltimore).

Not "free agency" per se, but still a good offseason idea.


#2626992 Offseason NFL News

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 January 2014 - 12:06 AM

The Bucs have hired Cardinals Director of Player Personnel Jason Licht as their GM.

Licht spent most of his career working for either the Patriots or the Eagles. He was a scout with the Panthers for one season (1998).

The Dolphins GM job is still unsettled, but it looks like Marc Ross won't be a candidate. Another year and Ross gets shut out yet again.

I'd love to have Gettleman offer him a job as Director of Player Personnel here. Maybe even give him the title of Assistant GM and make him an 'heir apparent'. Heck, it could be a good time to lure a few scouts or other staff types out of New York after the disaster they had last year.


#2626462 Giants letting Nicks walk!

Posted by Mr. Scot on 21 January 2014 - 03:29 PM

The offense we started the season with is not the one we finished with. Injuries early on took their toll.

Who knows what difference having an intact OL and a healthy Jonathan Stewart could have made?


#2626457 Yahoo contributor Jonathan Wagner on Nicks.

Posted by Mr. Scot on 21 January 2014 - 03:26 PM

he's worth a shot.

he won't be getting top money from anyone so i'm not worried about that.


Said it elsewhere, Gettleman knows him well.

Whatever he thinks he's wort, or not worth, I'll be fine with.

Harbaugh really is kind of a prick.


#2624374 Richard Sherman I Love You (with video)

Posted by Mr. Scot on 20 January 2014 - 02:10 AM

Two articles from the same Yahoo Sports author...

 

Pregame: Here's why big mouths of Colin Kaepernick, 49ers have a shot at payback against hated Seahawks

 

Postgame: Seahawks' Richard Sherman won't stop talking in face of Peyton Manning, Broncos – and any vanquished 49er

 

Excerpts panther fans will enjoy...

 

They humbled the Panthers on Sunday with goal-line stands, end zone taunts, finger wags and even demonstrative sideline pirouettes from their irascible head coach. They apologized for none of it. They want more. They want Seattle.

...

It was Kaepernick who mocked Cam Newton's Superman touchdown celebration on Sunday, buttoning up an imagined Clark Kent suit as if putting it away for the summer. Only moments later, he was directing a defender's attention toward the scoreboard, which had more opponents' points Sunday than in any other game this season since Week 2.

...

 

Chirping Seahawks should take note. "I'm not just going to let you say anything you want to me," Kaepernick said. "If you are going to say something to me, I am going to respond."

 

 

"When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree," Sherman said, "that's the result you gonna get. Don't you ever talk about me. Don't you open your mouth about the best or I'm gonna shut it for you real quick."
...

"Med-i-ocre," Sherman said, enunciating every syllable as if he was chewing on something rancid.
...

Sherman was asked about the choke sign he directed at the Niners' sideline. Was that for coach Jim Harbaugh?

"That," Sherman said, "was for Kaepernick."
