#2935061 QB Controversy

Posted by Marguide on 07 September 2014 - 08:17 PM

I'm thankful for DA's contribution today, but I hope it's his last start for a while. If not for Gholdston's brick hands, DA would be in everyone's doghouse for throwing the game away.

 

We were this close to a major letdown today, so please Cam, hurry back.

Now lets be serious, does anyone really think Cam would have played half as good as DA in his current state? This in gambling terms is what I would consider "playing with the house's money" Not only did we give our franchise QB a extra week to heal, we also won a game in the process.

 

DA damn near gave the game away in the 4th qtr. We can thank Gholston's drop for the win.

 

I'm glad we got away with the gamble, but the decision nearly bit us in the ass. And I don't think, I know that Cam would have guided us to an easy win.

Patience grasshoppers.

 

I know everyone wants to see the young guys, but their day will come.

what if cam plays and gets hurt worse. is it worth going 1-0 to you and having to play anderson for multiple games? because it's not to me. i'd rather be 0-1 maybe 1-0 and get a healthy cam for the rest of the year. 

 

This isn't like muscle or ligament damage. It is a question of pain management. He is not going to aggravate the injury by playing, although I'm sure he's going to hurt like hell on Monday.

 

Could he take another blow to the ribs? Sure. That could happen tomorrow or 3 months from now. Just as any other part of his body could get injured on any given play.

Im going to be perfectly honest and some on here might not like it, DA gives us our best chance at winning tommorrow period! Why? Well hes healthy, overall he has good timing with the WRs and has more reps with them "(Rivera said this BTW) and he has looked good in pre season and seems to have excellent chemistry with KB.

If you really look at this entire situation through an objective lens, you are blind if you dont think DA gives us our best chance to win tommorrow. Stop ignoring the obvious, how many practices has Cam got with the WRs since the NE game? How many has DA had? Who is healthy? Who is not? DA is healthy.
 

 

Then count me in with the blind people.

 

DA does not give us our best chance to win. He's a backup. He's a backup on probably 28 to 30 teams in the NFL. On the other hand, the guy you want him to replace is a top ten QB. Let's also not ignore the fact that DA is coming off his own injury, one to the hand he throws the ball with.

 

DA may start, but don't try to convince anyone that he gives us our best chance to win.

He wasn't exactly ripping any of the throws in the video. I'm not sure the video tells us much of anything.

Makes me long for the days when that Bucs Apple Roof Cleaning guy would come in and talk smack about my choice in roof shingles.


--------------------------------------
Matt Ryan wears braided belts.

 

I kind of miss him. He was good at promoting his company, making it sound like a necessary service even though I've never known a single person that had their roof cleaned.

 

Wonder if he got too close to the edge during the offseason?

Anyone else get the sense that this one is a little personal between Lovie and Ron?




#2923806 Stephen Hill First Impressions

Posted by Marguide on 03 September 2014 - 07:37 PM

Bersin couldn't beat out Armanti Edwards for a roster spot.

Think about that for a second

:P Just kidding (kinda)

 

Yeah, but let's be honest. Bersin has looked better this preseason than Armanti ever did. 

 

Perhaps it's not so good that up to now, that's his claim to fame.




#2923256 Stephen Hill First Impressions

Posted by Marguide on 03 September 2014 - 02:27 PM

Early in his career, Mushin M. had drop problems too. I remember going to a game maybe his 3rd year with us, and during pre-game warmups he would watch the ball all the way into his hands in a highly exaggerated manner. You could tell someone had been working hard with him on that aspect of his craft.

 

Hopefully we can see similar results with HIll.




#2922458 Stephen Hill signs to Panthers Practice Squad

Posted by Marguide on 02 September 2014 - 10:36 PM

Ricky will get him straight.   I have no doubt.

 

You can thank his agent for knowing Proehl..  I think without that connection Hill rejects the practice squad.

 

Here's the way I think it went down...

 

No one was willing to put Hill on their active roster and pick up his full year's salary at $700,000+. 

 

Knowing the above, Gettleman agrees to keep him around for at least a week at basically zero risk, giving us time to evaluate whether or not he might be a fit. This implies that DG and coaches will probably need to make a decision on him over the next week, because following week 1, it would only cost a team 3 game checks and a roster spot to bring him on board. I just can't see the practice squad thing lasting very long. Someone is going to want to take a chance on him at minimum wages. Either way, whether we promote him or we lose him, don't expect to see Hill as a long term member of our practice squad. He and his agent both know this is the case, making the practice squad signing more palatable.

 

And by the way, there's nothing that says he is only earning $6300 a week as a member of our PS. That is the minimum, but clubs can and do pay more depending on the circumstances. 

 

Just one last comment....Chud sucks.

I don't get the love/hate for Bersin or the love/hate for Hill. If Bersin turns into a good receiver we win. If Hill turns into a good receiver we win. Let the best contributors play and forget what you thought of them pre-draft or what school they went to.

 

Is there any good reason we wouldn't want all our players to be successful?




#2921369 The Superman Survives

Posted by Marguide on 02 September 2014 - 02:28 PM

They are going too far with this. Football is an emotional sport. I'll bet the vast majority of fans like the ball spinning (when not directed at an opposing player) and pointing after a first down (not Cam's necessarily, just in general).

 

The owners are pretty much all really old guys and the commissioner isn't exactly a bag of laughs either. The league needs some new blood.

Sure but my gut is telling me we are going to get spanked. 

 

Is that the same gut that told you Geno would be better than Cam?

 

Sorry. Had to go there.
