#3025032 What Packers Fans are Saying

Posted by Marguide on 17 October 2014 - 02:13 PM

Some of you guys are either the biggest homers, or have half a brain.  

 

None of the above. We're just in denial. We can't believe that the defense we could count on all last year has fallen to the depths of this year's rankings.

 

Don't scorn us, we're only humans and deserve a little empathy.




#3024366 aj klein vs chase blackburn?

Posted by Marguide on 16 October 2014 - 10:59 PM

Brad Nortman is probably more valuable to this team than either Klein or Chase.

 

People like to talk about our great front 7, but in reality, it's really only 6 because the 7th guy is almost never on the field.




#3024354 Instead of a foregone conclusion there needs to be a rethinking.

Posted by Marguide on 16 October 2014 - 10:52 PM

I honestly beleived right up to the draft that we put the tag on Hardy to try to trade him for picks. Apparently, that wasn't the case. So then I thought, ok, maybe a long term deal is close. Voth and others later stated that was never in play. It's still hard to believe that Gettleman truly just wanted to rent Hardy for one year at a cost of $13 million and then let him walk. Some part of how and why he was tagged just doesn't ring true to me. 

 

 

His absence and the dramatic fall of our defense is the proof.

 

If you can't tell the difference between Hardy at LE and the combination of Adiason, Horton, and Ealy. I don't know what to tell you.

 

1) There is no proof that Hardy's absence is the reason for our poor D. It's certainly a factor, but I don't buy that plugging him back in would turn us into a #2 defense again.

 

2) Hardy wasn't Hardy either when he had the age/experience of the guys named above. It often takes awhile for DE's to develop. One or more of them may turn out to be just as good or better.




#3024342 Ron Jaworski on Cam Newton

Posted by Marguide on 16 October 2014 - 10:36 PM

Just as I would no longer put any value in anything Nolan Nawrocki says after his predraft hack job on Cam, I can't take anything Jaws says seriously after his ridiculous statements about Colin K. becoming the best QB in league history.




#3023003 Top franchise cornerstones

Posted by Marguide on 15 October 2014 - 08:26 PM

TonyN's agenda since joining this board has been to look for every opportunity to downplay Cam's accomplishments while highlighting every shortcoming no matter how minuscule. It's his thing. It's what he does.

 

Sure, every now and then he will post about our D or other subjects, but generally only as they serve his overriding agenda.

 

On one end of the spectrum we have footballisasport. On the other end is TonyN. Having rational discussions with either is a waste of time and energy.




#3022028 Burfict Fined; No Suspension

Posted by Marguide on 15 October 2014 - 10:40 AM

Panther fans should have forged his name on a napkin with $100 next to it and he would be gone for a year.

 

Not sure I follow this. He's in the NFL. They can do autographs for money whenever they want.

 

Ah, just noticed you are a Saints fan. That explains it.




#3021981 Burfict Fined; No Suspension

Roger Goodell is the biggest piece of crap in the league right now. He can't go soon enough for me.

 

There is no consistency whatsoever in penalties. He talks tough about maintaining the high NFL standards while letting the idiot owner in Indy do pretty much whatever he wants without any real consequences. He basically ran away and hid when the whole domestic violence thing flared up. The players don't respect him.

 

He is in no way worthy of continued employment by the league.

 

 




#3006727 Greg Cosell's Week 5 analysis: Cam Newton's improvement is clear

Posted by Marguide on 09 October 2014 - 12:00 AM

You are confusing playing / played better and potential. 

 

Wilson has without doubt played better than Luck. Luck like Cam probably has more upside than Wilson. 

 

You can debate who has more upside but you can not debate who has played better / been a better QB to date. 

 

How is Cam a better pocket passer? Wilson is more accurate, better decision maker, more passing TD's, less interceptions, moves better in the pocket / evades pressure. 

 

There's no doubt Russell is damn good. I think Cam is too. And yes, Luck is as well.

 

You just can't fully evaluate these guys in a vacuum though. They are too dependent on their supporting casts. Case in point: how much better would Cam's outing have been against Chicago if Kelvin B. decided to actually show up that day? With a little better offensive line, would Cam's numbers be higher? What kind of numbers would Luck put up if he played with a great D like Seattle's? Conversely, how would Wilson look in Indy's offense?

 

So I think it's fair to say Wilson has put up better numbers than Cam (indisputable really), but it may not be accurate to say that Wilson has played better than Cam or better than Luck. There are just too many variables involved.




#3006216 Cincinnati Bungles week

Posted by Marguide on 08 October 2014 - 05:53 PM

Cinncinatti Chile, for the record, is horrible. It's like some drunken idiot didn't have all of the ingredients to make REAL chili so he just started throwing in whatever crap he had in his pantry. People in south Ohio too lazy to correct the guy's mistake. 

 

it's cinnamon BTW not coacoa powder. 

 

Chili is good. Spagetti is good. Cheese is good. Why is it when you put them together it tastes like crap? Somehow the spagetti seems to water the chili down somehow. Anyway, what makes it worse is Cinci chili is no good to begin with, so the end result is extremely disappointing.

 

I lived north of Cinci for like 9 months many years ago. The weather sucks, there's nothing to do but hang out at the local hotel lounge and try to pick out the least fat woman to pick up, and you have to navigate the country roads with extreme caution due to the religious zealots cruising in their horse drawn chariots. Want to visit other Ohio cities to break the monotony? You have choices like Akron or Cleveland. Everything about Ohio (except Luke Kuechly) sucks.

 

I couldn't get out of that state fast enough.




#3004961 Don't hold your breath for more no huddle offense...

Posted by Marguide on 07 October 2014 - 10:22 PM

An NFL analyst came on and said that Cam needs to swag out of the huddle and up to the line?

 

I think the poster was saying Cam shouldn't swag up to the line (whatever the hell that means), and should put out more positive energy thereby raising his teammates performance to a higher astral plane. Or something like that.

 

You are probably confused because you are one of those people.

 

Wait a minute...maybe I'm one of those people too! I wonder if it's contagious.




#3004063 Don't hold your breath for more no huddle offense...

Basically, Shula gonna Shula. 

 

Nowhere in that article does it talk about how much they plan to use it going forward. 

 

It's been an issue for years. He allows the energy from previous plays to dissipate when they aren't in no huddle. It permeates through the entire squad, and it affects the outcome of plays because the energy level of the offensive unit decreases.

 

No huddle is the only thing stupid people can understand. Luckily, I'm not one of you.

 

Buddy Love: "You got to strut."

 

No, you need to SPEED UP.

 

Did this come to you in a dream? Maybe while sleeping with pyramids to either side of you?

 

Our version of the no huddle isn't necessarily faster. We still often snap the ball at the last second. All it does is it keeps the defense from substituting, and it gives Cam more time to survey the defense before the snap.

 

But feel free to continue on with the "bad energy" angle.




#3001945 Panthers take Chris Ogbonnaya off the street and put him on the roster

Posted by Marguide on 05 October 2014 - 10:59 PM

Agree with Frash.

 

Look, I defend DWill and Stew all the time, but only because it isn't their fault Hurney was an idiot. What did you expect them to do, turn down the money? But the reality is, you can find productive running backs on the street with regularity. There is absolutely no reason to invest significant resources at that position.




#2993426 Per ESPN: Rivera says Cam and Luke "have to be perfect"

Posted by Marguide on 01 October 2014 - 07:36 PM

My problem with the quote has nothing to do with Cam or Luke. It's that it removes responsibility from everyone else.

If everyone else is waiting around for those 2 to save the day, we're in trouble. That's why I think it was an ill-advised thing to say.


#2993246 Per ESPN: Rivera says Cam and Luke "have to be perfect"

Posted by Marguide on 01 October 2014 - 06:11 PM

Puts more pressure on our 2 best players who are already under tremendous pressure.

 

Takes pressure off everyone else.

 

Ron, I hope like hell you know what you're doing.




#2991528 This week Shula says we have to find ways to get in the endzone

Posted by Marguide on 01 October 2014 - 01:21 AM

Look, I get the Shula hate. I really do. But many of you are just being childish about comments that any Carolina fan should understand. I'll even interpret them for you:

 

We have to do a better job of converting our red zone opportunities. Too often we have been stopped by foolish penalties, untimely sacks, and a failure to execute.  We have to stop settling for field goals. All of us understand that won't be good enough to get you many W's in this league. We are going to get to work to try to get these problems behind us.

 

That's what he's saying when he says we need to get in the end zone. We may not like his playcalling, or we may not like the results, but don't act like the guy is a blithering idiot. That says more about you than him.
