#2993688 So why not do it like last year?

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 10:26 PM

I wonder if statistics support this idea.  Especially in the last five years.

 

DeMarco Murray - Round 3

 

Le'Veon Bell - Round 2

 

Rashad Jennings - Round 7

 

Knile Davis - Round 3

 

Alfred Morris - Round 6

 

Lamar Miller - Round 4

 

Chris Ivory - Undrafted

 

Matt Forte - Round 2

 

Frank Gore - Round 3

 

Justin Forsett - Round 7
 

I give you the current top ten yardage gainers in the NFL this season so far.




#2993527 Per ESPN: Rivera says Cam and Luke "have to be perfect"

When the word perfect is worked into the conve about your job performance that never ends well.

 

I need your posts to be more perfect from here on out.

I read the whole article before commenting.

Cam and Luke are extremely motivated individuals. They can handle whatever the coaches throw at them. But I don't want everyone else waiting for them to make a play.

As important as those two are, this isn't the NBA. We need all 53 playing ad well as their talents allow.

 

They're also leaders.

 

Neither of them is gonna accept someone else half-assing it while they're busting their butts.
 




#2993481 The 3 players Hurney traded up for

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 08:15 PM

Many people questioned if Cam was worth the number one overall pick.  It's not like he was going to fall out of the first round.  If we didn't pick him, the Bills would have. (Of course that year the Bills picked 3rd.  So Cam was a sure fired top 3)  I don't give too much credit to Hurney because I think JR himself wanted this pick to some degree.  In the end, Hurney just picked up the QB, a position that was obviously our weakness.  Many GMs would have made the same decision.

 

To get an idea of why Hurney is no longer the GM, you only have to look at who was picked in the next round after Cam.

 

That'd be no one. 

 

At least not by us, because that pick had been traded away for the privilege of drafting Armanti Edwards.

 

For that matter, take a look at the rest of the picks made in that draft.  Except you really can't because none of them play here anymore, and that draft was only three years ago.

 

You wanna be GM of a winning team?  You need at least some of your lower round picks to contribute.

Mr. Scot, your threads and posts always sound so intelligent and they make you think. I swear I am not being glib. I imagine you being a university professor or a counselor (idk why I picked those two necessarily) which means you are probably a Hell's Angel. ;)

 

In reality, I don't even own a bicycle :lol:

 

I wouldn't consider myself the smartest guy in the room.  I've just been watching / playing / studying / coaching / everything football for over forty years and love to talk about it.

 

Now if you ask me, one of the better football minds I've talked to in my time is my old online friend Magnus (who responded above).

If I am wrong sorry, but I think that putting pressure on the two leaders of the team in turn forces them to hold everyone around them to a higher standard.  It's a leadership lesson.

 

I think both welcome it.




#2993375 So why not do it like last year?

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 07:13 PM

Do I get a prize for saying that earlier?  I'm thinking season tickets should do it.

 

I'd give 'em to ya if I had 'em :lol:

 

Your post was definitely one of the 'right track' ones.  I still wanted to wait a little longer before responding though.

 

As it is today, I've definitely been on here too much :wacko:

Isn't Spinderella still out there too?

 

I think I'd retch if that happened.
 




#2993305 Steve Smith Is ON WFNZ Having A Confessional, Won't Let the Story End

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 06:42 PM

Cam Newton's response (link)

 

Newton said Wednesday he has no friction with Smith or with Rivera, Gettleman and Panthers owner/founder Jerry Richardson. But in this fight, Newton made it clear his allegiance lies with his coach.

“I’m not about to step into whatever they got going on. I think that’s going to be a distraction for us,” Newton said. “I don’t think coach Rivera is worried about what Steve Smith has to say about him and nor do I think Steve Smith is caring about how coach Rivera is thinking about him.

“Moving forward, I’m sticking by my coach. Do I have a relationship with Steve Smith as far as how we communicate outside of this locker room? Yes. But for us, my main focus is being 3-2 at the end of this week. You’re asking me is coach Rivera a great coach or a players’ coach? Absolutely. He’s an unbelievable coach.”

 

 

There's also this, which probably shouldn't come as a shock to anyone.

 

Gettleman did not respond to a message seeking comment.

I don't see the big deal, you guys are over-reacting

 

You realize what forum you're posting on, right? :)

On the flipside...

All business. Nothing personal. Still unproven. Got a lot to prove. That's reality and I face it with my head up. Forever thankful.

 

That's from a guy who doesn't have millions of dollars in the bank from a long football career.

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 06:20 PM

I'm honestly not sure anyone could put more pressure on either Cam or Luke to perform than they already put on themselves.

 

Both guys are ultracompetitive.

So are we going to still be making Hurney threads 10 years from now just because we lose a few games?

 

I figure the Hurney discussion stops after his bad contracts are finally over and done with.

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 05:09 PM

I'm not saying Gettleman or Rivera are beyond reproach, that's not really my point. 

 

My point is regardless of what happened, it was childish and impulsive to call up a radio show and rant about it. You don't clear your name or set things right doing that, you just come off sounding bitter and obsessed. 

 

Smitty talked about how he's a 35 year old man with a wife and kids and he doesn't play Madden, but he calls a up a radio show to rant about something he saw on twitter that suggested the Panthers were leaking info to the press to make him look bad after he just got finished torching them? Was he wearing tin foil on his head so they couldn't read his brain waves?? 

 

The fact that he tried to turn Rivera coming to the locker room to shake his hand and wish his family well into something negative tells me all I need to know about his version of events.

Who's the kid that was signed by the chargers last year from our practice squad from Stanford?  Is he still around?  White guy.

 

Thomas Keiser.  He's currently playing for the Cardinals.

 

As irony would have it though...

 

Thomas Keiser arrested on misdemeanor battery charge

 

That happened last New year's Eve.
