I don't know why, but this memory randomly popped into my head when I was reading about our Special Teams. This happened over a decade ago so I could just be making it up. It's kind of dead here right now anyway, so please help me clear this up.
I remember watching a game on TV when I was a kid, and a returner went back to receive a punt. One of the announcers was doing commentary and mentioned that this returner put icy hot in his jock strap so it would piss him off because he played better pissed off.
Now to me, that sounds like Smitty (classic Smitty), but I don't remember who they were talking about or if it was even a guy on our team. I do remember it being a Panther game though...
So yeah... Am I just imagining things or does anyone else remember this?
So here's who will be available and their respective grades with PFF by position. Who do you want? Who is realistic to pick up?
OT - Bell is at the very bottom (by a large margin) with -33.4 grade, so basically anyone else we sign is an immediate improvement. That is how catastrophically bad he was this year.
WR - It'd be cool to grab Torrey Smith, he seems like the most realistic other than the hot garbage of Michael Crabtree, Hakeem Nicks, and others. Dwayne Harris as a returner might be an option as well.
RB - RB? Yup, RB, especially if we don't draft one and if we let D-Lo go. Spiller could be an option.
LB - LB? Yup, LB, especially because I don't think they are sold on Klein as a starter and because TD is getting up there in age (and expensive). Can Nate Irving play outside? if so, he might want to come home.
DE - You can never have too many pass rushers, case in point, this year. If we could somehow get JPP I would be soooooo happy. Derrick Morgan wouldn't suck either (not sure if TN runs a 4-3 though)
S - No idea about any of these guys or if any of them are realistic.
CB - Wouldn't mind taking Patrick Robinson away from NO. I know, Norman and Bene, but it wouldn't hurt to bring in solid competition for those two. You know, plus Depth and all.
DT - We need more fat guys. Terrence Cody maybe? You can see Dwan and Cole listed and determine yourself if you want to bring them back.
