#1888701 Classic trap game

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 07 September 2012 - 01:04 PM

1.)I'm still waiting to hear that explanation on how the Panthers FA/Draft are equal to that of the Bucs.....

Let's keep it relevant and moving, or I might have to post another picture of a lombardi trophy......

I'm trying to talk about the current state of the teams and trying to educate some of these "casual" fans about the game of football and their good ole' rival Bucs...

Now please refer back up to point #1.

1. why does it matter if the Panthers were less active in FA? Bottom line is a talent depleted team offensively in Tampa is trying to play catchup....little more. Tampa is still lacking. Drafts? No point calling a draft anything other than a push until players actually play.

Current state? You have one team who finished 2011 strong with momentum heading into this year vs one that curled up in the fetal position and was curb stomped. You have a GREAT up and coming offensive team vs a so so everything. Nothing to talk about current state is obvious.

#1888477 Beason to start and Munnerlyn to play #2

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 07 September 2012 - 10:28 AM

I'll be holding my breath hoping Beason can make it through without aggravating his hammy. Hope we aren't rushing him back.

I'm looking forward to seeing Nakamura take advantage of his starting opportunity. I wouldn't be surprised if he came up with an INT or a few big hits.

Well, maybe I didn't learn my lesson from Dwayne Jarrett but this poster has shown optimism on this board when few were willing. We have not seen the last of THE Sherrod Martin. Martin is more talented than Nakamura....Martin will be back. Martin will be back and ball. 2011 isn't going to define Martin IMO.

#1888376 Adam Schein "speaks"...

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 07 September 2012 - 09:21 AM

they'll still wind up picking in the top 10 next year.

it's surprising to me how many people have these guys rebounding significantly this year. sure, a lot of the problem was leadership but new coaching staff....new systems on offense and defense.....that doesn't usually equate to success in the first year at all. all people are doing is looking at their activity in FA and thinking this is a real contender now but their problems are still going to be at the top and the things they fix won't be overnight.

people really overvalued that defeating of the pats in preseason.

for the life of me i can't understand how anyone could look at what the panthers did last year compared to the season before (on offense) and the players that we got back and added on defense and think that this team isn't going to be significantly better. it's even harder to understand why people would think that the bucs would be better in the first year with the new staff than the panthers in the 2nd year of the new era. people must still really have it out for cam or the panthers. i just don't understand.

They may pick in the top 10.... We did last year. I just expect improvement and for them to not be the easy win they were most of last year.

I think we win....I just don't see us stomping them. Old school fg deciding Panthers/Buc game.

I think we will be better against the run....unsure about the pass and ST. About the same on offense. We need to be more consistant on offense this year....hopefully Cam can do that

#1886980 Opening Line Carolina (-2.5)

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 06 September 2012 - 09:24 AM

Well read today that DeQuan Bowers is likely headed to IR, dunno how viable the source is, but that helps a ton.

somewhere Byron Bell is doing a little celebration dance. That was ugly watching that matchup last time.

#1886958 Lesson learned from Game One

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 06 September 2012 - 08:58 AM

I'd tell my OL and DBs to get s little over aggressive....until the refs prove they are on top of it. I have seen tons of holding ignored in the preseason and DBs getting away with too much. better to take advantage of it than just being a victim of it?

First two drives should set the tone...hope Rivera adjusts to how the refs are calling it and plays that way.

#1885458 Who do you think will be the 7 inactive's on Sunday?

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 05 September 2012 - 06:58 AM

Captain has put the ball on the ground four times during punt returns in 09 & 10. He doesn't have the hands for the position.

Steve Smith has 13 fumbles on just punt returns. More if you add KOs. It happens. Hands generaally isn't the issue....trying to make a play is. AE just tries to catch it. Adams will try to make a play

#1884633 Question about Practice Squad

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 04 September 2012 - 12:59 PM

I'm no genius on the subject... But if this indeed is true, then what's the point of even having a practice squad. I can see them not making game day trips.

I would find it incredibly hard to believe that the PS squad guys are not traveling to IMG in Tampa with the rest of the team though.

Point of practice squad is for practice and grooming...and bodies if you need to add someone to your roster later on. But they don't travel....

This week could be an exception (not sure) since Carolina is displaced for the week but they don't travel to regular road games,

#1884205 What's your BOLD prediction for the Bucs Game on Sunday?

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 04 September 2012 - 05:46 AM

You sir, are straight up trippin'.

Since when can our secondary cover anyone?

Newsflash. Josh Freeman is good despite last season. Vincent Jackson? Yeah, he can beat our secondary.

I think we likely win this game. To suggest Tampa isn't going to be in this game however is silly.

#1883795 My Armanti thread.

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 03 September 2012 - 05:25 PM

Armanti does not have NFL level athleticism

Oh noes! This guy hates his life. What a loser. He also has never been a NFL GM so his opinion on anything means about as much as my fart.

....am I doing it right?

#1883768 My Armanti thread.

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 03 September 2012 - 04:54 PM

This. Love all the losers who get bent of shape about it, like it's their life. Oh wait, it probably is.

I love how people try to spin pointing out the Amanti project has been a complete bust based on other QB conversions......somehow means people are miserable and hate their lives.

Talk about a desperate reach.

Fans critique their team. Simple and plain.

Pat and Schefter have us as a WC team

#1883025 Rob Chudzinski

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 02 September 2012 - 08:10 PM

There won't be any point in discussing it after Chud leaves. It will be more relevant after the season ends as it was last year.

Cam makes OCs look good. When Chud leaves....Cam will keep on keepin on. I like Chud. There are others like him out there. Same cant be said for the QB he had last year.

#1882358 My Armanti thread.

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 02 September 2012 - 10:52 AM

I agree, converting a QB to a WR isn't going to result in an immediate stud WR and return man......but Armanti's pace in converting has been an utter joke being a 3rd round pick.

First 2 seasons of some the more recent coverted QBs and what they did as a WR/returner (those since 2000)

Armanti Edwards (3rd round investment)
WR- 0 rec, 0 yards, 0 TDs
Returner - 211 yards, 0 TDs, 11 yard KO avg, 5 yard PR avg.

Josh Cribbs (undrafted)
WR - 11 rec, 98 rec yards
Returner - 2644 yards, 2 TDs. 24 yard KO avg, 8 yard PR avg.

Julian Eldeman (7th round investment)
WR - 44 rec, 445 yards, 1 TD
Returner - 625 yards, 1 TD, 21 yard KO avg, 14 yard PR avg.

Brad Smith (4th round)
WR - 41 rec, 386 yards, 2 TDs
Returner - 187 yards, 18 yard KO avg.

Antwann Randel El (2nd round)
WR- 84 rec, 853 yards, 3 TDs
Returner -1998 yards, 3 TDs, 21 yard KO avg, 9 yard PR avg

Matt Jones (1st round)
WR - 77 rec, 1,075 yards, 9 TDs

Ronald Curry (7th round)
WR - 5 rec, 31 yards
Returner - 68 yards. 22 yard KO avg.

So it is fair to say Edwards is a project and we shouldn't expect a QB to be a great WR/return man quickly...but he is a failing project right now. We spent a 3rd on a guy who has done less than any noteworthy QB to WR/returner in recent time. So it isn't stupid to suggest he should of done more at this stage. Suggesting he should be better isn't claiming he should be AJ Green with PP's return ability.

#1882062 The actual reason Armanti is on the team...

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 01 September 2012 - 10:28 PM

Lost in Armanti's 2011 return average is the number of punts fielded inside the 20 due to our inadequate defense. Very rarely were our opponents kicking from deep within their own territory... Deion Sanders couldn't have done more with the majority of his opportunities.

I'm with you in hoping that Adams is the home run hitter that we've lacked for almost a decade. If he continues to put the ball on the turf, however, I don't believe he is worth the risk.

One of the greatest return men in NFL history couldn't of done much more than Armanti last year?

Okay, I give up.

#1881568 The obvious position switch

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 01 September 2012 - 02:03 PM

Martin has a good shot IMO of winning his job back before the end of the season. Flat out more talent and potential at FS than his replacement.

He just needs to be more reliable...
