#3325892 Why aren't we hearing more about Chris Conley?

Posted by Mage on 18 April 2015 - 11:12 AM

I honestly don't know why he isn't been talked about as a late day 1 or day 2 pick. 


Day 1?  As in, first round?  Chris Conley... in the first round?

I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.  Thank you.

#3321912 Voth talks up Melvin Gordon in the 1st

Posted by Mage on 14 April 2015 - 08:36 PM


I'll deal with Gurley but Gordon is a CJ2k type runner. .


I'm curious.  How is Melvin Gordon a "CJ2K type runner"?


Gordon relies more on cutting than Johnson did.  Gordon's vision is also much better.  He doesn't have Johnson's straight-line speed, but beats him in COD.


He is more like McCoy and Charles (although Charles has blazing speed) than Johnson. 

#3304339 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Peat and it isn't even close.

#3299870 Panthers worked out Randy Gregory

Posted by Mage on 26 March 2015 - 12:08 AM

Screw the morals part. The issue is a guy couldn't pass a damn drug test that he's known the date of for years. That's just stupid. How can you trust him to not get suspended?


Worked out well for Justin Houston and the Chiefs.

#3294465 Dex's OMG no OT in the first 5 rounds mock draft.

Posted by Mage on 22 March 2015 - 11:47 AM

Where would you be okay taking him?


In this class?  I don't think he should go any higher than the third round.  I am almost certain there will be better receivers available at our pick in the first round, if we choose to go that direction.  I think this draft is so strong at receiver, we could/should (assuming Cooper/White aren't at our pick in the 1st, which they won't be) wait until the 2nd to take a receiver and still come away with a reliable #2 with #1 potential.


I liked the direction you took with your mock draft by the way.  You did a good job overall.  I just think that Devin Smith would be a massive reach at our pick in the 1st, partially because of how strong this class is at receiver and partially because Smith isn't a first-round prospect.  Not in my eyes, anyway.  I view him the same I did Kenny Stills, who is another good player but somebody I wouldn't take in the 1st.

Devin Smith is so overrated on this forum.  He isn't a bad player (very good with his downfield route running), but he is not a first round prospect.

#3290758 Would you be mad if gettleman chose Todd Gurley as our first round pick?

Posted by Mage on 19 March 2015 - 11:00 AM

Can't handle the workload in college what makes you think he can last 8 years in the NFL?


Torn ACLs happen.  You make it sound like Gurley was constantly nicked up or something.


Not that I am advocating for Gurley in the first round, but there is no reason to think he can't handle a normal NFL workload for a top-flight RB. 

#3284024 For the "Cam ain't got weapons" crowd.

Posted by Mage on 14 March 2015 - 11:49 AM

I can't speak much on the 2005 Steelers, but the 2008 Steelers had one of the greatest defenses of all-time.  They didn't need a lot of weapons on their offense.  So maybe if our defense gets that good... yeah.

#3279260 Gettleman: Oher can be answer at left tackle

Posted by Mage on 12 March 2015 - 10:01 AM

Actions speak louder than words.


If come draft day, Gettleman completely neglects improving the offensive line, then we will have something to talk about.  Otherwise, I'm not sure what to take out of this.  It isn't like Gettleman is going to say, "we're still not sure if Oher can solidify this group."

#3253015 Derek Anderson, a Bill? This guy appears to be kicking it around without sub...

Posted by Mage on 24 February 2015 - 03:01 PM

People would really pass up on a 4th round pick for about to be 32 years old, career back up Derek Anderson?

Some of you seriously overrate him.  Doesn't matter though because no team would give up a 4th for DA unless they were fools.

#3247398 Is 'BPA, or be damned' a flaw with Gettleman's draft philosophy?

Posted by Mage on 20 February 2015 - 10:07 AM

Just look at the last 2 drafts.

#3241687 So who "has Jerry Richardson's ear"?

Posted by Mage on 14 February 2015 - 12:44 AM

Thomas Davis is the only person I can think of that would for sure.  Maybe Ryan Kalil and MAYBE Cam Newton.

That is a cornerback by the way.

#3219822 Familiar Foe in Atlanta

Posted by Mage on 25 January 2015 - 05:04 PM

Interviews are allowed at certain times.


Anything past interviews?  Like using the time you're supposed to be coaching your CURRENT team in the playoffs in order to talk to and hire your coaching staff at the new job you supposedly haven't even been offered yet by the rules?


Who says that happened?  Maybe, just maybe, Quinn had already (during the interview) given them a list of names that he would want as his coordinator and Atlanta went ahead and hired them because they didn't want another team to end up snatching them up and time was running out?


There is nothing to see here.  If there was a legitimate chance Atlanta was tampering, we would have heard something from someone by now, especially in this day and age.
