#3032041 The Traditional QB Still Rules the League

Posted by JawnyBlaze on Yesterday, 10:16 PM

Yea cuz last year's Super Bowl winners had a statuesque traditional pocket passer at QB and they made that super mobile spry scrambling QB they faced look foolish.


#3025949 Inside the Panthers Run D

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 18 October 2014 - 02:19 PM

Well, I disagree with one thing.  Greg Hardy would most certainly help the run defense.  He wasn't a one trick pony that just pushed OTs into the backfield toward the QB.  He was very good at diagnosing run plays and plugging his gaps, and slicing down the line to make tackles even when they're not to his side.  On some of those big runs, instead of a big gap with a G on the LBs, it woulda been Hardy taking the space stopping the run.  I'm not saying with Hardy in our Run D would be as good as last year, there's got to be multiple factors in a problem so big, but losing him is the single largest contributor to the decline in my opinion.

Winners like the Jets?




#3025222 Percy Havin to Jets! Wow!

What I find funny is on the PFT page, 4 stories down from the trade announcement is "Seahawks want to expand Percy Harvin’s role" lol.  Expanded it all the way to NJ.




#3022314 Rugby POY Quits Rugby to Play in the NFL

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 15 October 2014 - 12:42 PM

Before watching the video I was like "nah, rugby players don't often have the cutting or shiftiness for RB."  I lived in Australia for a while and watched plenty of it.  This guy seems like an exception though.  Worth a shot.  We coincidentally have a PR position that needs an upgrade....




#3022279 NFC Offensive POW

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 15 October 2014 - 12:32 PM

So rather than Cam's Herculean effort against Cincinnati, the NFC OPOW goes to an OL...I mean, I'm all for recognizing OL for good play but there's no way that guy's game or impact was nearly as huge as Cam's almost 400 yards 3 TDs in the best game of the season yet, while injured and getting ankles twisted and whathaveyou.  This is ridiculous.  I know they don't mean anything, but still.  It's a matter of pride.  Most of us want to see our guys recognized when they deserve it and no way Tyron Smith deserves it over Cam this week.




#3021948 Thomas Davis "Unacceptable"

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 15 October 2014 - 10:05 AM

Marshall and Jeffery are very good receivers, I'm not suggesting otherwise. But Nelson and Cobb are producing light years beyond the Chicago tandem:

 

Cobb/Nelson: 72 receptions- 54 receiving first downs- 160yds avg per game- 963 receiving yards- 12 TDs

 

Marshall/Jeffery: 56 receptions- 39 receiving first downs- 133yds avg per game- 796 receiving yards- 7 TDs

 

To further your statement "Marshall and Jeffery would be good on any team;" I would counter that by saying they'd be great on Green Bay.

 

Oh I agree, we seem to be agreeing in a roundabout way.  Marshall and Jefferey would top 3k yards this year with Rogers as their QB. 
 




#3021559 Kelvin Benjamin Still Looks Boom or Bust

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 14 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

 

Benjamin still has value as a quality weapon in this league and should be able to improve some things about his game. But for those of you expecting him to be the next Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant or Julio Jones, think again.

 

Except, you know, stats and all.

 

KB so far: 416 yards 4 tds

KB projected over 16 games: 1109 yards 11 tds

 

Megatron's rookie season: 756 yards 4 tds

Bryant's rookie season: 561 yards 6 tds

Jones' rookie season: 924 yards 4 tds

 

KB has ALREADY equaled two of their TD totals six games into the season. He is on pace to shatter Bryant's yardage mark and beat the other two by a healthy margin.  Even if KB doesn't maintain the level he's been playing at, he'll still easily surpass every stat I listed except possibly Jones' yards if KB takes a steep decline.  Is he Megatron?  Probably not.  Is he on the level of Dez and Julio?  I'd say so, with room to exceed them.

 

edit: because I forgot we've played 6, not 5 games.




#3021346 Thomas Davis "Unacceptable"

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 14 October 2014 - 07:50 PM

Only Green Bay has the far better QB and coaching staff. Their receivers are scary good and our secondary is equally as bad.

For my money Rodgers is the best QB in the league.

 

Chicago's WRs are almost as better than GB's than GB's QB is than Chicago's.
 




#3020739 Does Cam put the ball in spots where KB gets slaughtered?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 14 October 2014 - 12:26 PM

Don't get this and don't really like it, you want quick, agile (generally smaller) receivers across the middle and in the slot so that you attract less attention and have more escapability from the most crowded area of the field. Did seem like KB took some serious safety/LB shots across the middle on Sunday.

P.s. I don't for a second think cam wants to hang his mate out to dry like that, I can only imagine Shula is calling the shots on those plays.

 

Eh, I dunno about this.  In the crowded area you probably want the bigger guy that can out-muscle people for a more contested pass.  And the bigger guy can absorb those bigger hits better than a little fella.  I know often slot receivers are smaller guys, but I think the intent of that is for them to be able to do something after the pass, being quicker and shiftier.  When you just need a reception for a first down or something, the bigger guy is going to have a better shot at securing the pass and will be able to take those big shots better.
 




#3020730 Does Cam put the ball in spots where KB gets slaughtered?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 14 October 2014 - 12:20 PM

In fact, I think Cam's ball placement has been the area Cam has improved on the most this year.  They're almost always exactly where they need to be.




#3020721 Does Cam put the ball in spots where KB gets slaughtered?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 14 October 2014 - 12:16 PM

Nah most of his big shots are across the middle, as CelibatePimp pointed out.  No way to avoid that, Cam isn't throwing them high to him on the crossing routes.  He throws it high on the out routes and the ones by the sidelines so that only KB has a shot at them.  Cam's placement on throws to KB have been a thing of beauty.




#3020135 Panthers vs. Bengals GIF Thread

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 13 October 2014 - 11:00 PM

that KB situation was the real issue with the tie... that call was garbage and the only reason we tied. we beat them.... them missing the kick well after the fact is just further confirmation. clearly the refs took time off even after the plays. nice gifs

 

Yea, I agree.  It was less a push-off than it was getting the guy to stop holding onto him.  But it wasn't the most egregious error the refs made that day, so whatever.
 




#3019807 What would your reaction be?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 13 October 2014 - 08:21 PM

Likewise, I can easily see Hardy or maybe a couple other players on this team doing the same thing in the thick of the game.

 

I have never seen Hardy do anything remotely dirty or even close to intentionally trying to injure someone.  The ankle twisting, as Olsen put it, indicated forethought and planning.  It wasn't an accidental 'didn't get his head up' or accidentally hit someone low.  It was a premeditated, intentional act.  A hammer lock and twist isn't an movement or action that comes naturally or by accident.  Hardy's never intentionally tried to hurt someone in any game I've seen.  And I've watched them all.
 




#3018826 Matt Miller Week 6 Power Rankings

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 13 October 2014 - 12:21 PM

I feel like Matt Miller doesnt even watch football.

 

Indeed.  "Playing over their collective talent level"??  Are you serious?  We are playing so far below our talent level it's ridiculous.  Allowing 34 ppg over the past 4 games with Kuechly, Davis, CJ, Star, KK is mind blowing.  I wouldn't say our offense is playing below our talent level, they're about where they should be considering we have Cam, Olsen and KB but dealing with an atrocious OL and no run game.
