In Topic: Kelvin Benjamin Still Looks Boom or Bust

15 October 2014 - 10:06 AM

Can anyone pick out something from the article (those that actually read it) and tell me specifically what you disagree with?

 

The only time he said the word "bust" was in the title and I think a lot of guys read that and freaked out.  He isn't saying anything about KB that isn't true or things we don't already know and understand.

 

I love what Benjamin does on the field, but I also understand there are a lot of things he doesn't do.  But he's a rookie, and like any rookie time will tell.  Which is precisely what this guy is implying.

 

I'm really not sure what all the hate is about after reading it, accept for the title, which I think is where many of you stopped reading.

I actually get what he's saying. I love KB and think he has been amazing but this guy has a point. You know what separates Benji from the big dogs right now? Explosion. He is just not athleticly gifted to be able to make those kind of plays.

He's big, knows how to use his body, and he's a long strider who can go up and get the ball. But essentially that's all he's shown to this point, which is exactly what this guy is saying.

Man, I found a glass bottle of Cheerwine at the grocery store down here a few weeks ago. My GF said I was getting wayyyy to happy over a soda. I told her to STFU and to not judge me. It was magical, I haven't had Cheerwine in years, we can get Sundrop but it's just a crappy consolation prize.

 

Went back to get more and they haven't had it since. I should have bought every bottle in the damn store when I had the chance.

 

Now I has a sad.

 

There is something amazing about a glass bottle Cheerwine.  I'm originally from Salisbury so I used to get them all the time.  Sams sells the glass bottles in 24 packs, I literally cried a little when I saw it.

Cam doesn't call the plays and we don't have the type of WR's to do that

 

I was being sarcastic.

This post makes you look "uneducated" and "narrow minded". Don't be a Billy Boxscore! Watch the games and you'll see why alot of us don't feel the same way.

If you watched more Indy games you'd understand that Luck IS overrated by the media. No one is saying he isn't good but the media has already crowned him the next best thing and right now I can't honestly say he is.

Luck and Wilson were put in the best possible positions to succeed. Luck for the most part had all day in the pocket last night and still threw some very questionable passes. Wilson is good too but he sure doesn't have to do much in order to win. He still relies on his legs more than his arm, something many of you said and bashed Cam for.

IMO Cam is a better pocket passer than both Luck and Wilson. Wilson makes some nice touch throws and is great on the run but isn't often asked to make alot of these tough throws Cam does. Cam can make ANY throw from the pocket and is often asked to put it in the smallest of windows. Cam has the arm strength and accuracy to do it as well. We see time and time again what Cam can do with a decent pocket and average to below average weapons.

When ranking these guys you must factor in the players around them and ask yourself who gets the most out of what they have to work with? IMO that's Cam.

 

I simply don't agree with you.  Luck is an extremely gifted QB and I watch plenty of games with him and russell wilson.  It doesn't make you any less of a fan to admit they are as good or even better than Cam right now.

 

You can NOT deny that he is playing as good or better than any QB in the league right now not named Peyton.  Its idiotic to even suggest that.  Your idea that the media has crowned him as the "next best thing" is ridiculous.  He IS the next best thing.  Luck, Wilson, Newton...all these guys are the next great QB's of this generation, luck being the best of those three right now.  What else is the media supposed to talk about??? 

 

And Luck wasn't put in the "best" position to succeed.  The Colts were what 1-15 or so before he got there?  Come on man, I would say that Indy has done a better job putting guys around luck.  But that's not something you should really compare between QB's.  To do so is ridiculous.  Some Panther fans do so because its convenient and makes them feel better.
