#2580707 Icon Entertainer and MEGA dangerous Cam has a Defense.oh ohh

Posted by Mr. Scot on 02 January 2014 - 01:23 PM

Portis pointed out that every team except Seatlle would have to come here to play us.

 

Glad he cleared that up :unsure:




#2580684 First QB to go in the draft?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 02 January 2014 - 01:13 PM

O Brien was with the Pats for a good while.  Doubt he even considers Manziel.  It will come down to Bridgewater or Bortles

 

Wonder if he'd trade for Ryan Mallett.

 

There's talk McDaniels might go that route if he got the Browns job.




#2580676 Revis Could Get Cut By Tampa

Posted by Mr. Scot on 02 January 2014 - 01:11 PM

Because I know it'll come up, we run a zone scheme here so he wouldn't be a good fit.




#2580671 Newton postgame (Saints) with Sal Paolantonio

I saw that at the game.  Pretty funny. Anyone with a link to the interview?

 

i didn't find it the first time I searched, but got it on my second try.

 

Newton: It was a team effort




#2580666 Icon Entertainer and MEGA dangerous Cam has a Defense.oh ohh

Willie McGinest supports the Pats.  Shocking :lol:

 

Akbar Gbaja-Biamila is a really smart guy.  Clinton Portis?  Eh... :unsure:




#2580633 Calling the Mike

Cam seems to also be playing a bit more situational football.  Forcing a bit when needed, scaling back when it's not.  It just seems to me that he is making better choices on a game to game basis.

 

.  

 

Agreed.

 

As far as concerns, forget who it was (Gross maybe) but I remember one player saying they had to kind of keep him from getting too hyped up on the sidelines.  Rivera might have said something about that too.  That'll be important when he plays his first NFL postseason game as well.

 

Win or lose, it's indeed possible he'll have a rough first outing.  People will pounce if that happens, but they shouldn't.  It's not unusual for a young QB in his first pro playoff game.

Agreed.

 

I think that Cam is making big strides, and if we can get the accuracy dialed in a bit more, he can challenge for one of the top QB spots in the NFL.

 

People tend to assume when a guy's yards go down it means he's regressing as a QB (Newton's yards per season have gone down both years since his rookie year, as have his total attempts).

 

That isn't necessarily true.

 

Sometimes, "dialing it back" is a good thing, and it can be a sign of progress if other things improve.  It means he's becoming a true pro QB instead of just a "sling it all over the place" guy.  Looking at the overall stats, I definitely think that argument can be made.

 

(changing coordinators helps too)

 

Is he still inconsistent?  Yes, but not so much as he used to be.  And there's one thing that I find especially telling...

 

Newton's MO during his first two seasons was almost always to start out hot but tail off as the game went on.  This season, that's not true anymore.  In fact, some of his best moments have been late in games rather than early.  That is what you want to see.

 

Coaching changes?  Maturity?  Better teammates?  Unknown what the biggest factor is.  Don't honestly care as long as I see improvement.

 

Gonna be an interesting postseason.

#2580153 2014 UFA WR

Posted by Mr. Scot on 02 January 2014 - 12:00 AM

The two receiver moves I'm most in favor of in next year's free agency...

 

Re-sign Ted Ginn...

 

Let Brandon LaFell walk...

 

Beyond that, I'm not that enthusiastic for much.

Quarterback calls out the mike.

 

Center calls protection.




#2580146 Scrap the Offensive Play book

Posted by Mr. Scot on 01 January 2014 - 11:53 PM

You mean the playbook that the team takes all of training camp to learn, then practices and refines over the course of the regular season?  That playbook?

 

Scrap that and learn a new one in less than two weeks?

 

Eeeehhh...no.

 

What the team will do is tweak plays, approach and gameplanning for the playoffs.

#2577660 Is Greg Hardy the best DE in the NFL?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 31 December 2013 - 01:25 PM

J J Watt isn't in this discussion anymore?

Agree that Hardy is in the mix.


#2576328 McDermott's name heating up

Posted by Mr. Scot on 30 December 2013 - 06:36 PM

It's generally accepted that Steve Wilks gets the DC job if McDermott departs.

Leslie Frazier's background is as a DB coach, so Rivera could ask him to backfill (if he were willing).
