#3037255 Seahawks players: Russel Wilson "not black enough"

Posted by Frizzy350 on 22 October 2014 - 01:57 PM

People seriously underestimate how dangerous and detrimental collective labels have been to society. I really cannot fathom what most people have against being an individual sporting personal belief and behavior.

#3030997 How is it possible?

To be fair, Stewart has played fairly good considering how blocks have been developing in front of him.


He's constantly making something out of nothing.

#3023062 After 6 Games, Panthers can throw it and not much else

Posted by Frizzy350 on 15 October 2014 - 09:20 PM

I'm just glad the coaches have some what recognized that Cam and the passing game is our only saving grace this year.

#3018068 The Panthers D has given up 136 points over their past 4 games, most in franc...

The defense stinks this year aside of the occasional turnover they provide every now and then.

Hand the keys of the kingdom to Cam.  He is an elite, clutch playmaker capable of winning games on his own.  I wish we could support him in every facet that he deserves to benefit from, but everyone around him is failing at the moment.  With the way our defense, special teams and run game are playing, our best bet (despite how unfair it is) is to put everything on Cam's shoulders.  He's a tough man with an undeniable desire to win games.  We are most likely on the verge of making him the highest paid athlete in the NFL (and with good reason).  Lets see everything and anything he can do to salvage this wreck of a team.

All we need to do is win this crappy division to have a chance,

#3018059 I know management don't pay me for this, but...

Posted by Frizzy350 on 13 October 2014 - 12:36 AM

I'm not as concerned with who's starting as I am with who is seeing more snaps.


KK is without a doubt our best DL right now.  I understand he is isn't starting and isn't necessarily seeing the amount of snaps we think he should.  It was highly noted coming out of college that his biggest weakness was getting tired and seeing an excessive snap count (which resulted in the common statement of taking plays off).  He isn't a JJ Watt, Jared Allen, Peppers or Hardy, KK could very well have issues of "energy management" or is simply not able to achieve incredible levels of conditioning naturally.  If he is a guy that simply just goes all-out on every snap he is in on despite his body's ability to properly respond, then it makes it important to conserve his "tank" on a situational basis.


I like the fact that Norman has seemed to have gotten his head out of his ass.  He's talented and has the best ball skills on the team.  Bene needs to come back ASAP, he is a marked improvement over Munnerlyn who was quite effective as a nickel.  Melvin has some good attributes in terms of athletic ability and I like him as a back-up and role player, his pure coverage skills borderline acceptable.  Cason exhibits many of the same attributes of Melvin, but the fundamental difference is turnover generation.  Secondary players with a knack for forcing fumbles is a hugely underestimated aspect.  I understand he isn't playing bullet-proof ball but he's making enough critical plays every game to make a difference.  Godfrey is done.  I'd rather have him playing safety at this point.  Putting a guy like him coming off an achilles injury at NICKLEBACK is a horrible decision (and I believe intentional).  You are putting a safety into a position who's entire job is to defend (generally) the craftiest, quickest and most difficult man to wrap up on the opposing offense (slot receivers), this is the exact opposite of everything we've tried to accomplish with him as a safety.  Honestly I don't even blame the secondary for our game, we played soft coverage the entire game.  I love that we have corners who are able to be physical, but if you want the benefits of those types of guys you need to put them in a position to be physical.


Ed Dickson has done nothing this year.  Get Williams involved, especially in the passing game.  With Fozzy and Reaves both proving to be quality guys at picking up the blitz, we can spare having a tight end to go out and make plays downfield.  We can always let Olsen stay back and block if needed and would be unexpected.


With the way our defense has played and our inability to run the ball, we should be handing this offense over to Cam.  Get 4 receivers on the field often and spread them out.  Avant has been more reliable in critical situations and has more savvy than Cotchery.  Avant is not athletically gifted at an NFL level in any way, yet he makes much more of his opportunities than Cotch (especially in the screen game, which is most surprising).  I'm not in favor of benching Cotch, but I think Bersin and Brown need to start getting some snaps over him.  Brown has been a complete liability as a return man, but he makes catches as a wideout everytime his name is called upon.  He also provides an element of a deep, speedy threat to the offense and provides upside on end arounds.  Bersin is a big body that can block, has great situational understanding (always knows where the first down marker is) and has been catching everything in sight.  These guys deserve a chance.  They are young, hungry and could be an integral part of our future.


In regards to our defense, the lack of Greg Hardy has been underestimated by everyone.  Yes, he disappeared some games, but other games he seemed to nearly win on his own.  At this point, I don't think his disappearances were for lack of motor.  In general, the games he "did nothing" in, the rest of our dline stepped up.  I'm convinced offenses that shut Greg down were ones that accounted enough resources to keep Greg in check and pulled too many resources from everyone else.  We have good defensive linemen, but having that one athletic freak capable of completely taking a game over is the key component we are missing.  You also need to think of how versatile he is.  He's great against the run.  He's a great ST gunner.  He makes plays on the inside and outside positions of the line.  He's got great speed and quickness making him a huge boon in the screen game and containing mobile quarterbacks.

#3017210 Did both teams lose?

Posted by Frizzy350 on 12 October 2014 - 07:00 PM

I wonder how often that happens?  I don't really keep up with who gets in by how much. 


I'm still confused how a tie might benefit us here, can someone lay out a plausible scenario?


Say the Saints go 10-6 and we go 10-5-1.  We are automatically ahead of them for the divisional crown by half a game.  It eliminates the winner of the division coming down to tie-breaker scenario (e.g: both teams are tied at 10-6, tie breaker would be  head-to-head, divisional record, then conference record, etc etc).

#3010727 General question about hardy

Posted by Frizzy350 on 11 October 2014 - 08:11 PM

His market value might take a hit regardless of the outcome of this mess.  If he is innocent and we can get him in the 8-10 mil range I say bring him back on board.  He lacks judgement, but he is a heck of a football player.

#3001260 Did Luke have 75 tackles today?

Posted by Frizzy350 on 05 October 2014 - 06:44 PM

Enough with all these Kuechly every-time-we-win-after-the-game threads. Tackles should only count when it's made in the back field for a lost or no gain. Just like sacks. A DB tackling a WR on a 50 yard completion is not a great play. Tackling the RB after a 10 yard gain should not count as a tackle. The game of defense is about sacks and INTs. Unless there is a score there is a tackle in almost every possession. It's not something rare or difficult to get.


Come on guys, let's pretend we understand the game like those other fan-bases in storied franchises. Even I can fall on top of a pile and get myself a piece of tackle. lol


Yes and no.


Sometimes a downfield tackle is a big play by minimizing damage done from someone else's manner.


A big part of football is stepping up when a teammate screws up.  Yes you need to correct their misplay, but during the play it is the job of safeties and linebackers to get ball carriers on the ground to minimize the impact of the misplay.

It's a violence against women problem the NFL is addressing. No one gives a poo about a woman hitting a man. When taking any statistic into account, you have to find the study, how data was collected, and how it was interpreted. One thing I've learned is to not pay attention to any statistic put forth by an interest group or most kinda of media, particularly main stream groups such as national newspapers or Internet outlets.


I have a difficult time believing any form of statistic.


This is mostly because my company (small business) takes on a state contract every year to do a statistical analysis of public feedback on their department.  They are not allowed to do their own analysis (for obvious reasons) and are required by law analysis be done by an independent and private organization with no other ties to the department.  Thing is, we don't get a dime until they get what they want.  When they send us the data, they add arbitrary weights to each form of result (so marking the department a 0 for communication isn't weighted as a 0).  We send them the analysis, then they send it back along with the data and change the weights.  This happens 3-4 times before we get paid. 

#2965097 Leave your Hardy jerseys at home

Posted by Frizzy350 on 19 September 2014 - 06:41 PM

There's really no way to let Hardy completely off the hook in this.  He's an adult and he makes his own decisions.


Argue all you want whether he's guilty of the charges, but it's pretty much impossible to argue he's innocent of having poor judgement.


Oh without a doubt.  Greg got himself into an utterly retarded situation - guilty or not.  If Holder is nothing more than a party-going, coke snorting skank, he shouldn't have entertained any of it.


I'm sure the poon was great but he's like 27 years old.  I'm not even that old and I'm sick of straight skank poon.  I want a woman not a girl.  He shoulda got that out of his system in college.

Since this beatdown happened in the Falcon's house, why aren't they getting arrested for DV?


Because Matt Ryan was the only woman on the field.

#2961637 Can hardy withdraw his appeal?

Posted by Frizzy350 on 17 September 2014 - 07:07 PM

I get this weird feeling that the NFL, NFLPA, commissioner and the Panthers all believe Hardy is innocent and will win the trial.

#2956899 Benjamin catch takes second on ESPN Top Ten

Posted by Frizzy350 on 16 September 2014 - 01:18 AM

KB is not really a YAC guy. 


He is more of a big possession WR that can make some great catches. 


I get that.  Like I said it's weighing pros and cons.  If his great catches outweigh his drops he is a valuable player.


A couple points I'd like to make:

KB got a bit riled up this game.  I believe he got flagged for it (not certain), but it looked early in the game he got frustrated which could have been a factor in his lack of focus.  This is coachable.


KB made some key blocks in the game.  I hate to bring up the LaFell comparison again, but LaFell was a good blocker.  If KB is capable of making great catches and consistently block well, even with some drops he is an UPGRADE over LaFell.


We were 12-4 last year.  UPGRADES are all we need to stay playoff bound.  Our secondary looks significantly improved.  All we need is better play from receivers and our oline.  Last year they were good enough to get the number 2 seed in the NFC despite their poor performance.  We don't need to change our philosophy or take gambles on high priced players.  We just need to transform our weaknesses to an average level of play.

#2956869 Benjamin catch takes second on ESPN Top Ten

Posted by Frizzy350 on 16 September 2014 - 12:24 AM

Drop balls was his knock at FSU. 


We saw some of that on Sunday. 


Hopefully it is not a recurring theme. 


I don't think it will be.


If it does, it's a matter of weighing pros and cons.

TO dropped easy passes ALL THE TIME, but he also made freakish catches and was explosive after the catch.  This was the issue with a guy like LaFell.  LaFell offered almost nothing after the catch and I can only think of one jump ball scenario he won.
