If Randy Gregory is available at # 25 ....

A few months ago, Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory looked like a sure thing to be a high first-round pick. But now there’s increasing talk around the league that Gregory will still be available in the late first round.

Mike Mayock of NFL Network said today that he has talked to personnel people on several teams picking in the late first round who now believe Gregory could be available when they pick. As a result, those teams are having internal conversations in which the personnel people are talking to the owners about whether Gregory — who failed a marijuana test at the Combine — is the kind of person they want representing their franchise.

Curious to see how many of you think the Panthers would pull the trigger on Gregory at #25.  

 

They did their "due diligence", which notes interest (at least).

 

 


Disc Golf

I just find it hilarious.  I've been twice (solo) in 3 days and my arm is numb.  Wish I knew all of the throws.

 

The funny part is watching how serious some of the players are.  Two guys in front of me had bags, shorts, golf shoes and umbrella.  Guy behind me playing while smoking a joint.  Some playing fast, some slow as ...   All different ages.

 

On one fairway shot I hit two tree's and still 60+ feet from hole and nailed it for par.

 

 

anyone else throw?  any pointers on dogleg lefts?


Best and Worst picks for NFCS teams?

16 April 2015 - 10:06 AM

With tampa at #1 overall ,  the aints with 5 picks in first 3 rounds and the falcons with a top pick I'm curious which players Panther draftniks   "least prefer"  entering our division versus picks they "hope" the competition will make in Round one?

 

 

tampa:  Not sure if "fear" is the right word but Winston will make the Bucs a tough out for many seasons to come.  His size and accuracy just can't be cloned or picked up in FA.  It may or may not pay off in year one but this is the biggest no brainer of the draft.  My biggest hope is the Bucs find a way to not pick Winston.  Even if that means a trade and a butt load of picks, I would prefer that scenario to Winston in a gawd awful turdish-orange jersey.

 

 

saints:  With two #1 picks the smart thing to do would be to shore up their defense.  I just don't think Payton will use both 1's on D.  My "worst scenario" has them drafting DT Armstead at 13 and picking up a falling Gregory at 31 or even Kevin Johnson (who matches Payton's "we need defensive starters right away") pitch.  Would not be surprised to see them add DGB at 31 and not a fan of that scenario either.  Would much prefer to see them go with WR at 13 even if it meant watching Davante Parker or Kevin White twice a year.  At 31 a Payton reach for a "qb of the future" would be pure gold to watch.

 

 

falcons:  with Dan Quinn on board I am confident they will go defense, but if Cooper falls can they resist?  I hope not.  Either Fowler or Beasley would be my "least preferred picks", and even though Cooper is a hell of a player I'd love to see them forced to go offense in round one.  If not Cooper or an offensive reach I'd root for the CBS mock showing Shane Ray to the falcons.

 

 

I don't follow the draft nearly as well as a lot of you guys so curious to see other opinions.

 

 


Sharper to face "Penile Monitoring"

11 April 2015 - 10:44 AM

Pretty comprehensive article on just what is wrong with Sharper.  And,  From the "learn something new every day department":

During his first three to five years of freedom, California officials will track him by GPS.

He’ll undergo sex offender treatment for years.

He can’t drink alcohol for the rest of his life or go to bars or liquor stores. He can’t visit sex shops or chat on the Internet to get a date.

If he wants to spend the night away from home or travel more than 50 miles, state officials must approve it.

 

Sharper will be subject to lie detector tests and, while on lifetime probation in Arizona, to the “penile plethysmograph,” in which a sensor is attached to the penis while an array of sexual images flashes before his eyes, to gauge arousal.

 

Restrictions on where he can live, move or travel, and with whom he can spend time, are designed to limit Sharper’s opportunities to commit the crimes with which authorities charged him, experts say. According to the deal, one of the tools authorities could use is the penile plethysmograph, or PPG.

Commonly, rubber rings are placed around the penis to measure swelling in response to seeing certain pictures. Offenders might be shown depictions of both consensual and nonconsensual sex to compare the reactions and get a reading on whether rape arouses the subject, according to a 2012 research study.

 

Just how county probation departments in Arizona use such findings was unclear.

Love,love this quote from story,

 

"We’re not sure what songs Aerosmith will break out for the big night, although “Love in an Elevator” might not be the first choice of many league officials.
