In Topic: Kelvin Benjamin is not our 'Megatron'

29 October 2014 - 06:27 AM

He's our Jimmy Graham.

Benjamin isn't quite as fast as Calvin Johnson. But let's be clear on this: He doesn't need to be.

Generally speaking, the guys who are big enough to stand alongside Benjamin don't have the skills to cover a receiver. And likewise, the guys with the skill to cover a pass catcher aren't big enough to overpower someone Benjamin's size.

Basically, his size and catch radius make him a matchup nightmare for defenders even if they do keep up with him.

That's exactly what Jimmy Graham does for the Saints.

"But Graham is a tight end" you say?

Is he?

We know the NFL ruled that he is, but when you watch how the Saints use him, he's not limited to the traditional tight end role. they know they can line him up anywhere on the field and he'll cause matchup problems for whomever is stuck with the job of covering him.

Just like we can do with Benjamin.

So yes, they play different positions, but the same role. And as such, we can create the same kind of problems the Saints have created with Graham.

Megatron? He's a once in a decade kind of athletic freak that likely no one in the league can compare to now or for many years to come. I see a lot of people expecting Benjamin to be that too. And honestly, expecting him to be that sort of player isn't realistic.

But don't think for a minute that this is a slight to him. It's most definitely not.

Jimmy Graham is a pretty unique player too, and you could argue that a lot of what the Saints do revolves around him.

We now have a guy that we can use to do the same things. And I for one, speaking as a guy who was against his drafting, am extremely happy about that :D


I think the biggest thing is KB is just now learning how to be a pro.

He will come back next season bigger faster and stronger.

I think the kid has a lot of potential.

In Topic: R.R. defends Bell & Chandler at presser

29 October 2014 - 06:22 AM

I don't get you guys. We have no backup tackles and can't afford to get a good one. Do you expect him to keep shitting on them in pressers? What is that going to achieve? It will do nothing but break the teams morale. You put a brave face on it and when you have options you move on.


We are 15th in the league right now with roughly 6 million in cap space.

I'm sure we need that for emergency money.

Wonder what DG considers an emergency? Lol.

I would think it's enough to bring in a little more depth at least. That way guys can stay fresh.

But honestly at this point I don't think it matters. I think we just need the best from our guys.

In Topic: Is it wrong to boo your team?

28 October 2014 - 06:22 AM

Nope, I am no longer a fan of this team. I will still post on here because I love the community here, but I refuse to support this team for the time being. I am now a Saints fan until further notice. The way this team has punished me weak in and weak out, its time they get punshed back by me switching to the most hated division rival.


I think the key words is your post are;

"Weak"

In Topic: Would you want Jim Harbaugh if Panthers continue to suck?

27 October 2014 - 04:28 PM

Hell YES. Yes yes yes

In Topic: Cam's first-down celebrations really bother a lot of people. Why?

27 October 2014 - 04:26 PM

Is this a generational thing? My dad has never once criticized Cam until he told me how much he hates his first-down celebrations out of the blue yesterday. People at the office are ripping him for it. Even Jim Celania who we all love and who loves Cam was calling Cam out for the first-down finger point.

Am I the only one that truly doesn't get the big deal about it at all? People seem to not care about that at all as long as we're winning. The second we lose and/or Cam doesn't play well, it's all about how awful the first-down celebration is.

This is Year 4. Is this something Cam needs to get rid of like the towel over the head to appease the haters?


Winning cures all.

It's like when you are pissed off at someone. It's very easy to find every little thing wrong about them that u can to help validate your emotions.

And that's just it, emotions.

If we would have won yesterday this would be a no. Issue.

However, if you look at the game again you will notice how WELL he was playing when he was having fun kidding around and being himself.

I for one love when he is in that mode cause I know we are going to play well

Look at the second half and his demeanor changes and then he begins to press. And well we all know the outcome.
