"Graveyard" :lol:


Closed captioning is a real crapshoot sometimes.


#2409673 Panthers add LB Jacobs

No shock.

I've seen that clip a hundred times and it still cracks me up :lol:

#2409667 Beason traded?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 06:07 PM

If Beason is still playing 6 more years - 1 for recovery they will have a probowl MLB MLB not OLB for a 5th, no seriously this is a very bad joke.


What would you suggest they should have done, benched or moved Kuechly?


Beason hasn't played even a full quarter of a season since 2010.


Counting on him to be ready to go for six more years is thinking worthy of Marty Hurney.

A 5th for Beason?

Wow what a joke and what a steal, good deal Giants..



Maybe if it were still 2010.  That's the last time Beason contributed much of anything.


This season, he just wasn't playing well at all.


I swear, half the people talking about this don't seem to have been paying attention for the last three years.

Not to worry guys.


Jerry Jones is still in charge, and still thinks he's doing a great job.

#2409474 So who is introduced last on defense now?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 01:16 PM

Right now, probably Thomas Davis.


In a few years, Luke Kuechly.

#2409471 What (if anything) should a civilized society provide its citizens?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 01:14 PM

Speaking specifically of America...


On the federal level, essential services only.  Police (yes, I'd be fine with a nationalized police force), fire, military, disaster relief...essentially anything protective.


At the state level, infrastructure, education (voucher style) and health care.  I'm okay with the idea of government health care, but only at the state level and only if doctors are the ones making the medical decisions.  No bureaucrats allowed.  Disability benefits only for those who actually, physically can't work.


Would also throw in that if it were up to me, Id do away with federal income tax.  Let the state tax citizens only in whatever way it chooses.  Let the federal government draw their money from the states.


I would pretty much reduce the federal government to a shell of itself.

#2409365 Giants.com Has Interview With Beason, It's Clear He Wanted Chance to Star...

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 10:43 AM

More from Beason (link)


"It's amazing," Beason said at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, shortly after passing his physical. "It doesn't happen (often) with mid-season trades. But the one place I said if I wasn't in Carolina where I wanted to be was with a great organization like the Giants with a winning tradition, leadership, a 4-3 scheme where I can come in right now. I think I can really come out and impact the season."


"I know I'll come in tomorrow early and meet the coaches and I'll get my linebacker coach (Jim Herrmann) and we're going to cram," Beason said. "If they ask me to, I'll dress (Sunday) and I'll give everything I have. ... It's just going to be terminology. I'm a smart player. I learn fast. Being a mike linebacker, a lot is on your plate. I think I actually thrive in that position. I'm going to get with coach as long as it takes and as fast as I can get it as soon as I want to play."


And this interesting fact...

This is the Giants' first in-season trade since Oct. 8, 1986, when they acquired running back Ottis Anderson from the St. Louis Cardinals for 1987 second and seventh-round picks.


That's just a few days away from being 27 years ago.

What he's said wasn't stupid.


He was right.

#2409347 Jon Beason Officially a Giant.......Passes his Physical

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 10:25 AM

if we got a 6th or a 7th i would poo my pants.


if we got a 5th i would poo my pants and mail them to dat alice. if the giants tank we could land a 4th-round talent with the pick.




People are reacting to this like Beason is the same player he was three years ago.  Much as I like him, objectively that's just not true.


For the Jon Beason of three years ago, a 5th to 7th round pick would have been ludicrous.


For the Jon Beason of 2013 though, we're probably lucky just to have gotten something back :(

#2409333 Using new pick for Britt or McKinnie? Someone else?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 10:10 AM

From what we've been hearing, it may well be a conditional pick.  It's a tough sell to trade a conditional pick you're getting from one team to another.


Regardless, Gettleman seems more the type to trade for picks rather than trading them away.


And honestly, McKinnie doesn't interest me much.  Britt even less so.

#2409319 Lol wut? Fox News Panthers/Cards prediction.. "Palmer has never lost to C...

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 09:50 AM

Actually, this story is a re-print from "The Sports Network". http://www.sportsnet...ntent/about.asp

Of course it is pretty lazy journalism on Fox's part.


Looks like they've outsourced their football coverage to this bunch.  Guess that's what happens when you trust your coverage to bloggers.


Gotta wonder why they'd use this bunch as opposed to Fox Sports :unsure:

#2409311 Beason traded?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 05 October 2013 - 09:28 AM

Sixty plus pages that go from "hey didja hear" to "what a stupid rumor" to "oh $#@&, could this be real" to "hey we might get Hakeem Nicks" to "late round pick no way" to "will he pass his physical" to "oh man, bye bye Jon" :unsure:


Bottom line: Despite the rollercoaster, objective reality is that it's a good trade for all involved.
