#2644289 If you weren't convinced already that BleacherReport sucks.

Not totally Panther related, but, I was looking through some archives from their head "scout" Matt Miller, and it is rather funny reading over his grades.


Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback, Texas A&M

The Dolphins needed a quarterback, but not this one. Tannehill is a reach at No. 8 and could be the final straw that breaks the camel's back in terms of Jeff Ireland's job security. 

Tannehill is a great guy and a very good athlete, but as a quarterback, he's just OK. We don't like this pick, at all.

Grade: F


Luke Kuechly, Inside Linebacker, Boston College

The Panthers needed to go defense, but the smarter pick would have been Stephon Gilmore (CB, South Carolina) or a defensive tackle. The fact that they drafted an inside linebacker has us shaking our heads in the B/R war room.

Kuechly is a good athlete, but the huge gap at defensive tackle won't help this catch-and-tackle type linebacker who lacks the strength to take on blockers and make plays.

Grade: D


Bruce Irvin, Defensive End, West Virginia

Well...this isn't good.

The Seattle Seahawks made the Miami Dolphins' reach for Ryan Tannehill at No. 8 overall look like a good pick. Bruce Irvin was graded as a third-round pick. Drafted at No. 15? That's a huge mistake.

The Seahawks also reached last year with James Carpenter at the end of Round 1, and they did it again here with Bruce Irvin. They obviously like Irvin a lot, but they could have traded back to get him.

Grade: F- 


Quinton Coples, Defensive End, North Carolina

Quinton Coples' picture above rightly sums up my feelings on this pick.

Coples will fill a need, but with guys like Courtney Upshaw and Melvin Ingram still on the board, the Jets should have addressed the outside linebacker position over the five-technique defensive end.

Coples has amazing athletic potential, but he plays with horrible effort and has questionable football IQ. For a team with a poor reputation and focus already, this is a bad, bad fit.

Grade: F


Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

The Browns made a defensive move by trading up one spot to make sure that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could not draft Trent Richardson. With so many picks in this year's class, thanks to the trade with the Atlanta Falcons last year, the Browns were able to sacrifice three late-round picks to move up and get the best back in this class.

You might hear that this is too high for a running back. It's not.

Grade: A+


Grade: D


The Seahawks received our lowest Round 1 grade for their reach to grab Bruce Irvin at No. 15 overall. They messed up again in Round 3 with Russell Wilson after having signed Matt Flynn this offseason. Neither pick makes much sense to us.

Bobby Wagner and Robert Turbin saved the Seattle draft, but two of its first three picks were just bad.



Still laughing at all of it. I am going to go back later and look at the 2011 grades as well. Yikes.

Is Cam really that similar to Elway?


I always thought of Cam is a bigger armed/more athletic Big Ben

Those runs and passes remind you of someone?

#2548637 Wake County CO Gets 90 Day Jail Sentence for Brutally Killing Inmate

Posted by Verge on 16 December 2013 - 05:37 PM

The biggest crime is that he was in jail for probably walking around with a bowl with no actual drugs. I'm guessing he had priors but that still sucks.


I do see this both ways. What the CO did was excessive but there is an assumption of risk and what he did was part of his job even though he obviously did it wrong. I think the average joe on the street gets felony manslaughter.


I don't have a huge problem with the sentencing or the charge. Wouldn't want it to be less.


Question I have is does he have his job back when he gets out?


No, it's a felony charge I believe. You cannot be in law enforcement with a felony.

Who cares, we are going 2-0 in the next two weeks and winning the division.
