#2660558 Ray Rice Arrested for Knocking out Fiancee

Posted by micnificent28 on 21 February 2014 - 08:41 AM

I think Kuechly's athleticism really is underrated though....

Here's Vernon Davis's combine numbers (since he's roughly Kuechly's size):

6'3 254

40: 4.38
Vertical: 42 inches
Broad Jump: 10'8 inches
Three Cone: 7 seconds
20 yard shuttle: 4.17

Here's Kuechly

6'3 242

40: 4.58
Vertical: 38 inches (!!)
Broad Jump: 10'3 inches
Three Cone: 6.92
20 yard shuttle: 4.22

Really 40 is the only thing Keek gives up a lot of ground to Davis in. If you go back and look at yearly combine results for LBs, he'd be near the top of every class. 4.4 speed for a LB is about as rare 4.2 speed for a WR.

I think he's just never called athletic he really doesn't look that athletic when he plays: 1. because he honestly isn't great in coverage and 2. what he does best (run defense) doesn't require blinding speed or athleticism. Actually, now that I think about it, I've almost never heard any MLB called athletic.

tl;dr people not calling Keek athletic is a MLB thing, not a race thing.

Sorry for thread derail; Ray Rice sucks, as does anyone who would hit a woman, doesn't matter if she provoked you or hit you first. Funny story but actually I got punch/slapped (hard enough that my lip bled) by a psycho ex gf at a party because she saw me kissing another girl. Somehow hitting her back never crossed my mind for a second...that's not a normal reaction to have to a girl hitting you, much less spitting on you. Rice is seriously a scumbag.

I ve said keek is an above average athlete. But the fact that davis out does him by that much more in every category is the diffrence between the athletic perception and just good be nfl standards. And it might not seem like much to you but the diffrencr between 4.3 and 4.5 is huge. The nfl is a game of inches which that gap may be the deciding factor. I think everyone would call patrick willis athletic try comparing there numbers.

A pc code word? You sound like one of those crazy conspiracy theorists. Was it a code word when Tupac had it tattooed across his stomach? It's used to describe a certain way of behaving because that is it's definition, never mind that 'thug life' has been glorified for decades by rappers and now you wanna get all offended by it's use? Is this another word that only black people and honorary black people can say? Lol, just ridiculous. Also, class act is used a lot to describe people of all races. Oh, but I must not be a minority because only white people ca`n't see the encrypted media racism. Disgusting.


Well to answer your question words hold power depending on who's saying them. The N word was used to demoralize and put black people below and in there place. So to use this as an example,if i were to call you a lazy bum you wouldn't give a rat butt what i said. But say your mother called you that it would hold a much greater meaning. As for tupac he's not the king of black people and doesn't speak for all of us. I know me and the people i associate with we don't call each other thugs or whatever else.

I agree. A man should never hit a woman, unless she is endangering his life. IE; I would knock the fug out of a 13-year old girl if she was pointing a gun at me.

Rice is a POS. If she was spitting on him & hitting him he should've either just walked away & let it go or walked away & called police. Then she would've went to jail for assault.

He deserves a hefty jail sentence.

But women should also be held responsible. Just because men shouldn't hit them doesn't mean they should feel like they can verbally & physically assault men.

I disagree,Like chris rock said there's a reason to push a 80 year old woman down a flight of stairs. We don't have all the facts. We don't know what she did to rice. Saying he deserves anything is finding someone guilty before even going to trial. I think our Society as men has lost control over the boundaries that separate men from women. Women hold more power over men than women to to the point i think it's being use against us. They know If they even say we hit them and we didn't were going to jail. If I come to your house and ring your door bell and your gf or wife says i hit u im going to jail. The same thing can be said with Civil cases of child support or in marriage breakups. Who more than half the time has to pay who? who get he the kids the house and so on 80% of the time? Women know they are protected by the law and some women use that to there advantage. Who's to say this woman didn't provoke this to sue and win in court and gain a huge amount of money from rice?

So is it ok to call him a thug? Because I really want to.

How come "thug" is never applied to white people when this kind of stuff happens? I've never seen incognito called a thug for the whole martin thing. 

#2659752 So long Nicks.

Posted by micnificent28 on 20 February 2014 - 03:29 PM

Not at all. What he wants and what he's going to get are two diffrent things. he had a awful season last year. he won't be getting paid cruz money because cruz was having a successful season when he got his deal.

#2659358 Don't Expect a Discount From Hakeem Nicks... He Just Signed with Roc Nat...

Posted by micnificent28 on 20 February 2014 - 11:39 AM

I don't understand the statement made by the poster. Just because you sign with roc nation doesnt mean anything. Nicks is still free to accept what he wants. Fact is he hasn't had a thousand yard season since his rookie year. He isn't going to demand the money he thinks and roc nation is scraping the bottom of the barrel after missing out on several of this years to draft talents.

#2658367 Mayock Draft tweets.

Posted by micnificent28 on 19 February 2014 - 03:33 PM

Khalil Mack runs like a safety. Explodes off the edge. One of elite edge guys in draft. I've yet to find a hole in his game. Top-five talent. 

This is the deepest and best draft class he's seen in 10 years. 

"You can find different 'flavors' of running backs in the second round on. Dolphins have to hope one of those flavors is 'good.'" 

You can go three or four rounds deep this year and get a starting offensive tackle. 

Mike Mayock prefers Brandon Thomas at tackle (as opposed to guard.) And Mayock projects him late 2nd round. 

Nevada OT Joel Bitonio is a likely second round pick. 

"My favorite nickel CB in the draft is Jason Verrett from TCU. He's ideal for the slot. Quick-footed, tough."

Mike Mayock said on first viewing Johnny Manziel looked like a combination of Fran Tarkenton and Doug Flutie. 

Mayock on Manziel: He doesn't like being confined. The more he was in the pocket, the more frustrated he got. 

Johnny Manziel has the arm strength, ability, passion. Top-10, maybe Top 5 pick. "I believe in the kid." 

He really likes Washington running back Bishop Sankey. He wants to see Bishop Sankey catch the football in Indy. Didn't see enough of it on tape. 


“Dennard and Fuller, the two corners, I think they’re awesome but my concern with both of them is long speed." 

"Eric Ebron to me is a top 10 pick, and in today’s NFL he might even go in the top 10 just because of what he brings to the table." 

Kent State RB Dri Archer is among prospects he's most interested in seeing perform at combine. 

Ra'Shede Hageman will be a guy to watch at the Combine.Said he has "freak ability" and interested to see how he runs. 

Jake Matthews safest pick in the draft. 

"Taylor Lewan is a little top heavy, but he’s got a nasty finish. I think he’s very similar to Fisher and Joeckel from last year." Mayock says Lewan is worthy of a top 10 pick. But he's got him No. 3 on his tackle board. 

Mike Mayock on Kony Ealy: "He's not quite as athletic as Aldon Smith, but he's a little more physical, better against the run. A 4-3 end." 

"Chris Borland is one of my two or three favorite players in the draft. He could be the Kiko Alonso of this year's group." 

Mayock on Jared Abbrederis: Understands routes better than most receivers. Needs to get stronger. 3-4th round. 

"Calvin Pryor is a bigger Bob Sanders." Mayock says Pryor is more of a box safety while HaHa Clinton-Dix is a "complete" safety. 

Mayock believes Sammy Watkins will be the only top-10 WR taken. Mayock said he'd have trouble taking Lee or Evans top 10 in this draft, but both should go top 20. 

Mike Mayock said Blake Bortles is the most undeveloped among top-three QB selections. 

"I think all three could fit (Bortles, Manziel, Bridgewater) the Browns depending how they feel about each individual." 

"I think Kyle Fuller is a first-round talent and a first-round lock with sub-4.5 40." 

"Amaro would be logical at 29. So would Hageman. I think the other top guys (at DL/TE) will be gone." (Mayock on the Patriots' pick) 

Michael Sam is a "tweener" and that's why people are having a hard time evaluating him for the NFL. 

Mike Mayock says Michael Sam likely a third-round to fifth-round projection. "Tight-hipped, don't think he can play linebacker." 

Mike Mayock on Jadeveon Clowney: "I know he's got the physical makeup to be the best player in the draft." More upside than Mario Williams. 

"I wouldn't be surprised if Jets pick multiple WR this year. You can't go wrong with Marqise Lee of Mike Evans." (Mayock on the Jets' pick) 

"Quarterback they believe in makes most sense. They do have so many needs. Just need good football players." (Mayock on the Raiders' pick) 

Mayock said Khalil Mack can play in both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes, and that if a 4-3 team takes him they have to free him up as a rusher, too. 

Mayock is concerned about Jadeveon Clowney's "mental makeup.... Is he just going to be happy to be a millionaire?" 

"They need an edge guy. If Mack was sitting there, he & OT would be of interest to me. They need a new-age TE." (Mayock on the Buccaneers' pick) 

Mike Mayock said Teddy Bridgewater is the most ready because of the offense he played in. Reads whole field, throws to all levels of field. 

Mayock said he likes Tajh Boyd in the mid to late rounds. Calls him a playmaker. Needs time to develop. 

Mike Mayock said he thinks South Carolina CB Victor Hampton has second round talent but may not go that early. 

Mike Mayock said Utah CB Keith McGill has the ability to be a second or third round pick but needs to be more consistent. 

Scott Crichton is a "poor man's Chris Long." 

Mike Mayock says he'd be surprised if Eric Ebron is still there for Ravens' first-round pick. 

"Taylor Lewan might make it to No. 12. If he does, the Giants should jump all over him." Mayock says not to count out a receiver for the Giants. 

"Zack Martin, Cyrus Kouandjio, David Yankey makes sense at No. 27 for Saints right now." 

Darqueze Dennard is a top-15 pick. "My favorite corner in draft." 

Derek Carr fits into the end of the first round. 

A.J. McCarron is a second-round pick. 

"Timmy Jernigan can step in and be special early." 

Without injury, still don't think Zach Mettenberger is first- or second-rounder. Not a guy who can start from Day One. 

"Sammy Watkins has the toughness. He blocks people. He's got an attitude like he wants to be the best player there is." 

Seantrel Henderson one of biggest boom-or-bust guys in draft. ... Probably a fourth-round pick this year. 

Mike Mayock on Bruce Ellington: "He reminds me a little bit of a bigger Ace Sanders. And I really liked Ace Sanders." 

Mike Mayock said he wouldn't be surprised if Notre Dame DL Stephon Tuitt goes anywhere from pick No. 25 to pick No. 50. 


If the Texans trade down from No. 1, they may be willing to move down farther than usual because of quality of draft. 

If a quarterback the Jaguars love isn't there, both Clowney and Mack make sense at No. 3. 

"One of my favorite players in draft is LSU's Jarvis Landry. Reminds me a little bit of Hines Ward." 

"Jimmie Ward is one of my favorite safeties in this draft. I don't see him getting out of the second round." 

Colt Lyerla a first- or second-round talent. Would guess, because of character concerns, he'll get picked on third day of draft. 

Cyrus Kouandjio up and down last season. Had bad Sugar Bowl. Meetings with teams at the Combine will be important for him. 

Dominique Easley went from top-25 pick to third- or fourth-round pick after second ACL injury. 

If Carlos Hyde goes in first round, won't surprise me. With the running back position being devalued, he probably goes in second. 

"Trent Murphy reminds me a little bit of Mike Vrabel." 

Sammy Watkins would make sense for Browns at No. 4 if they waited on a quarterback. Carr could be option at No. 26. 

#2657967 Peshek: TE Metrics

Posted by micnificent28 on 19 February 2014 - 10:33 AM


This tight end class boasts a number of extremely productive players which makes analysis of their receiving targets very interesting. However, each player examined here was successful in a unique way which is what actually makes them worth analyzing. In this piece, I broke them down only by their receiving targets but added in a few metrics that would separate this from past wide receiver columns.

All the targets were hand charted by me from every game of these players. If you’re missing your favorite TE such as C.J. Fiedorowicz or Xavier Grimble - it’s because their receptions were so limited that a good sample size wasn’t possible. In the piece, Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be referred to in the charts as ASJ.

Seriously?  Putting up the numbers he did i dout that would be a problem.

It's possible. with the rise of odell beckham and cooks. Everything  is riding on the combine.

No. Do not want this race baiter in the locker room,tho i would love to see smitty punch in the mouth a few good times just for show.

#2654236 Cosell would take Benjamin over TAMU's Evans

Posted by micnificent28 on 15 February 2014 - 02:34 AM

Truth is his hands aren't that bad. He makes spectacular catches on the regular but, he will drop an easy one if he's not tuned in 24/7. I think he will impress at the combine with his athletic ability and will catch fairly well in drills.
