#1861818 Fug it: ATL vs CIN eddition lawl

If we show up at all this year, this division is going to be sick good. That doesn't even take into account a possibly improving Bucs team.

#1861577 Cam Newton to play whole half against Dolphins

Posted by Marguide on 16 August 2012 - 05:41 PM

This will mean a lot more when we find out of our defense can manage to prevent a Miami drive from lasting 3/4 of the first quarter.

Cam is not a concern. Question is if anyone other than Kuechly on 1st team defense will show up

Here's what the 1st team defense did against a powerful Texans' offense...
  • allowed 1 drive on maybe 3 big plays, but ultimately got a key stop on the goal line
  • created a quick turnover on a forced fumble by Keek, recovered by Martin
  • got another quick turnover with a pick by Phillips
I don't understand those that think our 1st team D played poorly.

#1861533 Interesting Article on Hurney

Posted by Marguide on 16 August 2012 - 04:43 PM

First five years. 55% wins.
Last five years. 44% wins.

He's getting worse, not better.

Just curious...every post you make slams Hurney. Did he run over your dog? Turn you down for a job?

It had to be something bad. Share with us.

Regarding the last photo, I hope Applewhite is wearing some sort of special padding.

If not, it's time for some wind sprints.

#1860447 Steve Reed Twitter hacked?

Posted by Marguide on 15 August 2012 - 03:37 PM

Same thing happened to me. I got a direct message from Sherrod Martin asking me if I was who he thought I was. It contained a link. When you clicked through, it was a phishing site wanting you to fill out personal data.

Apparently, Twitter is very easy to hack as it happens often.

As a follow up on Jawny's post, my feed for the Texans game was out of Houston. Their announcers referred to Smitty as a future hall of famer.

#1858623 Why our Defense is bad and why it (hopefully) shouldn't be a problem - A...

Posted by Marguide on 13 August 2012 - 11:50 PM

What we HAVE to add to our defense is 2 really good starting safeties, 2 really good DTs, and 1 good DE.

I agree with your assessment of our needs.

Keep in mind, though, in today's salary capped league, no team has all their spots filled with really good players. The trick is to have a good scheme, and have really good players in key spots as the glue to hold everything together.

The point is, we don't have to improve all the mentioned spots to be good. There is no reason we can't continually upgrade while maintaining a high level of performance.

Posted by Marguide on 12 August 2012 - 04:02 AM

One complaint I had with MH is he seemed to be quick to jump on players that were in free fall compared to their pre-draft placement.

My guess is, they didn't do that much research on Jimmy, just thought he was a steal at that pick.

I think Marty learned his lesson. I sincerely hope so, because Jimmy is ass. There is no other way to put it.

#1856173 Jonathan Stewart Signs Five Year (36.5 Million) Contract Extension

Posted by Marguide on 11 August 2012 - 11:19 PM

Quick....who are the running backs for the patriots?

We just watched a team with modest running backs run all over us.

In today's NFL, a running back is a commodity and it makes no sense to spend guaranteed money on running backs.

You spend money on defensive linemen who can rush the passer. Like the Giants.

Marty Hurney was just on the radio saying it was important to keep key players. What about Julius Peppers?

Quick...the Pats have Brady. Our version just arrived last year and was a rookie.

Houston has modest running backs? What league do you watch?

Understand your point re: RB's being a commodity. And they may be for us once Cam and the passing game is fully developed.

So what should we have done? Sign Mario Williams? And what if he turns out to be a bad fit in our system? If we are going to spend something on the d-line it needs to be draft picks.

Hurney tried to keep Peppers. Julius didn't want to be here.

#1856146 How good is Joe Adams?

Posted by Marguide on 11 August 2012 - 10:59 PM

I'm just glad we don't have to watch Armanti field the punt cleanly with a bit of open space in front of him, and scan the field just long enough for the defenders to get there and make the tackle.

After spending all last year yelling "run, dammit" it's good to see Adams make something happen.

#1853859 Sean McDermott comments on the #2 CB spot

It's unbelievable that one little off-the-cuff, humorous comment from Sean McDermott produced this beauty of a thread.

Oh wait. No it isn't.

#1853745 Over Under 7.5 Wins

Posted by Marguide on 10 August 2012 - 08:15 PM

7.5 as an over/under line seems reasonable. Going 8-8 or even 7-9 is entirely possible.

My personal belief as a fan is 9-7 or 10-6, but a slightly better or worse season is not out of the question.

Posted by Marguide on 10 August 2012 - 07:17 PM

Jesus guys, he was making a joke. That's his way of saying it's still an open competition, and he has no intention of saying who he prefers at this point.

Talk about overreaction. I know it's the Huddle, but come on.

lol at trolling other teams message boards.

You do it here on a daily basis. What's the difference?

#1851664 Offical Texans at Panthers Prediction Thread...

Posted by Marguide on 09 August 2012 - 12:30 AM

Cam and the 1st team O efficiently drive down the field for a TD. Many starters then get the rest of the night off.

Derek Anderson comes in and lights up the scoreboard, throwing for 275 yards in less than 2 quarters of play, with Armanti Edwards catching 190 of Derek's yards.

Jimmy comes in for 1 1/2 qtrs, throws 3 picks and fumbles once, causing the first loss of the preseason.

Monday morning, Anderson and AE head for Hurney's office and demand their contracts be re-negotiated.

In reality, the first team O will score early. 2nd and 3rd team offenses show flashes but also sputter, maybe putting 13 points on the board. On D, starters play maybe a series (Luke, a little more), and we look a lot like we did the last half of last year (mediocre). Final score, maybe 20 to 17, Panthers.
