#2907528 Would you trade Anderson to St Louis?

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 05:32 PM

In my opinion It's like the beason trade last year. We didn't get anything for it that was worth it but something is better than nothing for a guy that is just insurance. I'm sure we could work out some player trade.


Beason was a liability on the field and needed to get out of Luke's way.....plus we did him a solid.

Anderson has value to us....to the rest of the league? Not sure he does


#2907400 Time for Cam to learn to slide.

You still aren't getting it.
It is about probabilities. They are much higher for wear and tear when defenders are allowed to hit you.
It isn't difficult.

I agree....blows are blows and create wear and tear.

But IMO this is a bigger conversation than just that. Newton has rushed 364 times....let's say he slides on roughly 1/3 to 1/2. That is a poo ton of slides where he opens himself up to dangerous illegal hits.....bc defenders aren't going to just assume he is sliding. Not given the number of attempts and his 3rd down conversions. At least when he flops he does his best to brace for impact.....there is no bracing for someone flying at your upper body in a slide.

I think style of play dictates whether sliding is safest.


#2907285 Time for Cam to learn to slide.

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 04:20 PM

No. As tall as he is and as often as he runs.....when he slides defenders still have wide open shots at his head. Flag won't be worth it. The fact he is such a running threat means defenders won't ease off and know he is sliding like say Matt Ryan. They go for tackle and catch him in mid-slide

And in all honesty, the type knee he caught....could happen in a slide as he rolls over too. I chalk that up to poo happens.


#2907187 Would you trade Anderson to St Louis?

Probably would be the best situation for the Rams. But if I were the Skins, there's no way I'd make that trade. Cousins very well could be there starter in the near future.


double edged sword....I think Cousins is there best QB.

They gave up so much for RGIII I think you have to let him suck though


#2907184 Would you trade Anderson to St Louis?

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 03:54 PM

YES! If Cam goes down don't fool your self no one is coming in to save the season. Back Qbs are only good to hold the fort down, not make playoff runs.


Our best run ever....was with our backup QB


#2907012 Practice News

If Cam starts sliding....the penalty won't be worth him having his bell rung. As much as he runs and as tall as he is....it opens up his upper body for some brutal hits IMO

I like his flops


#2906980 This offense will miss Steve Smith

Also, Shula catches too much poo.

We go 12-4

We were 11th in yards per drive
We were 10th in points per drive
He had a weak OL, average traditional rush, and average WRs
All receiving options that weren't nearing the end of their career had career best seasons

Not bad. Not fun and sexy....but not bad.


#2906965 This offense will miss Steve Smith

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 02:12 PM

He got hurt, two big games away from 1k. Again how much of that is Shula?


89 didn't have a big game all year

Every other recieving threat had career seasons.


#2906949 This offense will miss Steve Smith

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 02:06 PM

Steve didn't decline from 2011-2012, 1100 yards and 4tds is still pretty good. The problem has been that he's no longer an elite #1 but he's a damn good #2.


And at 34 he had #3 production


#2906745 Panthers Cuts 8-24

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 12:24 PM

Underwood must be truly, truly awful if he can't make this WR corps. Panthers are going to struggle to score 20 points a game.

But up 14 in the first half of our dress rehearsal against a good KC D? In a quarter actually


#2906610 This offense will miss Steve Smith

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 11:18 AM

Exactly. Already paying the guy.
 
Hell let him return punts lol


Everyone keeps talking about on field stuff and why he should be here

The off field/lockeroom stuff is why he isn't here


#2906471 This offense will miss Steve Smith

Posted by CRA on 24 August 2014 - 10:11 AM

Just don't insult the fan base, with everything that took place this offseason he better hope we make the playoffs.


The fanbase should know some of the issues 89 presents without the GM publicly blasting him as they move forward


#2906378 This offense will miss Steve Smith

If his character was really an issue other teams would have cared. They didn't. You don't see teams signing 35 year-old receivers that have baggage.

There is a long list of NFL players with there own unique issues that find jobs year after year...

Excluding everyone but WR...off the top of my head

Terrell Owens was rented at 35 and again at 36
Randy Moss was rented at 35
Ochocinco was rented at 33
And now 89 at 35

Diva WRs are a dying breed in today's NFL...the last wave was all rented

89 has a place still in the NFL....just not on an offense where we currently are.


#2905585 Coming up on SC: Cam Newtwon Out of Sync

Posted by CRA on 23 August 2014 - 04:06 PM

Cam completed 66% of his passes against NE

Cam got into a nice rhythm against KC after the first couple

Biggest issue is we are running a handicapped O. Which impacts converting 3rd downs. In a real game IMO Cam would have converted some of those plays with his legs.....which would have resulted in a more consistant O.


#2904768 Teams that got blown out in Preseason Game 3 and still did great

Posted by CRA on 23 August 2014 - 04:21 AM

KC game was treated like game 3....not NE
