#2849670 Target sees the Redskins end game

Posted by MHS831 on 13 July 2014 - 09:09 PM

A visual description of a person is offensive?  I'd argue it's less offensive than the term "Indian" (Cleveland Indians).  American Natives were incorrectly given this name when settlers came to the Americas thinking they landed in India.

 

Heck the term African American is pretty damn misleading and is used to describe any black person in America.

White people are born in Africa, why is it that if they legally migrate to America they aren't African American?

What do you call a black person who lives in the UK?

This term also assumes all black people who live in the United States have lineage back to the continent of Africa, despite the fact that black people come from many different places like Haiti, Jamaica, the Caribbean, Trinidad, etc.

 

Offense is derived from context.  Constantly bickering about the proper nomenclature is a power grab utilized to manipulate and distract people from participating in discussion on actual problems in the US (and elsewhere).

 

In fact forcing a name change sounds an awful lot like the assimilation Native Americans were forced through.  When we had Natives attend English speaking schools, gave them English names, forced our religion(s) upon them and tore them from their previous way of life. 

The people had a name--Cherokees or Navaho- but to classify them as a skin color is bigoted--It was probably not meant to be a negative comment, but it was a stupid one (even 100 years ago or whatever).  I agree that the Cleveland Indians is also disturbing, but not because they were misnamed, because that logo is demeaning.

 

I do not see how misnaming a race is more offensive than classifying it by skin color.

 

I didn't coin the term "African American" but I tend to agree that it is misleading. However, I don't know of any black people not of African origin to be offended if called it.  I do, however, think they would be offended if we called them blackskins--as they should.

This is without challenge the stupidest most naive sentiment I have ever seen on this website.


Time to grow up and join reality.

 

Refer to the tribe, the name, but to refer to any group of people by skin color is racist.  Now, maybe the people at your rally will agree with you, but I doubt you are in a position to call anyone stupid.  You are just a narrow-minded moron who thinks football tradition, albeit bigoted, is more important than the dignity of a race of people. 

 

Call a native American "Red" or "hey redskin" and tell me about reality.  Until then, better to keep your mouth shut about what should and should not offend people in races you are not part of.  You personify bigotry with your response, but most never see it, because they are too busy telling people what reality is-as if they actually know.

Any reference to skin color is offensive.   If you have a thick skin about what other races should and should not tolerate, good for you.  That makes you a bigot.

 

"But a comedian once said...."  good argument.




#2847498 Slow news day, PFT shitting on receivers

Posted by MHS831 on 12 July 2014 - 09:10 AM

Gonna piss some people off with this comment--

As much as I or any outsider can tell, Smitty was a cancer.  Yes, he made some big plays and made sure everyone in the stadium knew it, but punching and insulting teammates in the media was all I needed to start questioning his impact on the team in the locker room.  No WR ever developed here after he was drafted.  Not one. The whole sorted truth will come out eventually, but I personally am anxious to see what we can do without him.

 

If you think Smitty was worth the money it would have taken to keep him here--a 35-year old, small speed WR with a banged up knee, then you are having trouble letting 2003 and X-Clown go. AND you do not know what $7 million buys in the NFL.   LAST year, he got a lot of balls thrown to him and posted 745 yards and 4 TDs. He is slowing down-so you should expect less in 2014.   Cotchery did not have the targets in Pittsburgh, but he nearly equaled the production in yards and more than doubled the scoring.  He is 4 years younger and a better teammate. 

 

Not even going to get into the inconsistencies of Lafell and Ginn.   Benjamin, Cotchery, Avant---upgrade.

 




#2833616 Make or break year for Shula (I hope)

Posted by MHS831 on 27 June 2014 - 02:15 PM

We won 12 games with Shula.  The line was porous, the backs were inconsistent, we had a suspect WR corps.  Lets load the cannons and fire away.

That girl was 18 and how do I know, I'm that girl.

 

Nah. This girl had a good sense of humor.

#2830920 Isportsweb: Raiders need to trade Moore

Posted by MHS831 on 26 June 2014 - 08:00 AM

Guess who was mentioned as the example for a trade partner? Easy answer, huh? Well just because an answer is easy doesn't mean it's wrong. Like Joe Horning suggested, it makes "perfect" sense.


"Given his production and speed, he would make a nice trade target for a receiver needy team. Someone like the Carolina Panthers, who have nothing but a raw rookie, aging slot receivers, and untested practice squad to throw to, Moore is a perfect option."

http://isportsweb.co...ffseason-move/

A 6th could be a pittance to pay for this Guy. I would love to get him before the Browns or the Falcons. Proehl would probably help Moore play with consistency and unleash his potential.

It just makes too much sense I guess.


BTW, creating a thread with a phone for the first time is...interesting.

#2829630 Avant was not a Chip Kelly Type of Receiver

Posted by MHS831 on 25 June 2014 - 07:50 AM

So Chip Kelly gets rid of Deshaun Jackson and replaces him with a 2nd round rookie and gets rid of Avant and he's a genius, but Gettleman replaces a 35 year old Smitty with a first round rookie and gets rid of Donald Lafell and he's and idiot that has assembled the worst WR corp in NFL history...mmmkay.

 

THANK YOU!!
 




#2827144 The Worst Offense in the NFL

Posted by MHS831 on 22 June 2014 - 02:00 PM

Another example of people who are stupid.

 

 

 

They read, "Panthers lose entire WR corps.  Gross retires, Bell to take over." 

 

They think, "Dang. They are gonna suck."

 

What insiders know that they don't realize:

 

Our WR corps was one of the worst in the NFL last year.  Our best WR was short, slowing, a bit of a cancer at times, and was due a bunch of $$$ if we kept him.  The others were not average.  How do you replace that?  Benji, Cotch, Avant, and Underwood should be able to do it.

The OL upgraded at LG, RG, and probably RT.  We may struggle a bit at LT, but note the emphasis we are placing on TEs and RBs that can block.

 

TE has a developing weapon, a new blocker, and a vet added to the roster.

 

Stewart should be back and healthy.  I really like the new kid from Stanford.  Gaffney will play more than people realize. 

 

Cam will be better. 

 

 




#2826980 Cotchery on Mac Attack

Posted by MHS831 on 22 June 2014 - 09:30 AM

Good post. 

 

And even though they maybe questions at OL, and maybe with the media regarding the WR's: I to feel the offense will be upgraded (hopefully with Shula and Cam being one year smarter, along with the addition of Ramsdall). 

 

Just another big target (albeit a rookie in Benjamin) will make a dramatic difference on the offense (kinda like Shockey and Olsen during Cam's early years, when the offense really cooked). 

 

I feel Cotchery and Avant, though not superstars, will provide that smart, heads up play many Panther receivers lacked (such as coming back to the ball when Cam's in trouble or about to scramble; moving up a few yards, if you see the ball may be short, instead of staying planted in your receiving route), etc. 

 

I think the sum will be greater than the parts next year. Just a different mix, attitude. Plus, I feel they'll be more cohesive/as one, with better locker room guys and in a eager rookie/star (in the making with) Benjamin?

I was not real happy when we drafted Benjamin.   I wanted him in February, but it waned.  I started focusing on his limitations.  From all I am hearing, we have reason to be excited.  The sum will be greater than the parts--I think the attitude has improved, Cam, Olsen, and Kalil will now lead the offense without a bunch of noise and finger pointing. 




#2826971 Cotchery on Mac Attack

Posted by MHS831 on 22 June 2014 - 09:19 AM

Hey, just look at how Smith Hung Cam Out To Dry (suggestion box press conference), claiming he was whining (forgot the better word), when Smith did the same thing several weeks later. 

 

He apologized for what he said about Cam in the media, but he should have known better to begin with. That was just Smith feeling entitled, thinking he can run off with his mouth.  

 

He also bugged Cam a lot on passing the ball to him. You wonder if SS's skills had totally degraded, and there were clearly better options, would he still bug Cam to throw him the ball all the time, if he would have stayed??

 

That certainly wouldn't have developed young receivers either. Lol

I am with you.  For a veteran, he made a lot of rookie mistakes with his mouth.  I think people are loyal to him and not seeing his impact for what it was. You have to look at the ripples he caused as much as the splashes.  The money situation made this move a no-brainer, but people still criticized the GM.  Smitty had many good qualities, but being a teammate was not always one of them.

 

Cotchery and Avant are class acts and they have good hands.  Benjamin is a freak.  Underwood has speed. We are better off.

 




#2826966 one of my better finds at Goodwill.. I'm sure you'll agree.

Awesome.  A black Kuechly is tops on my wishlist. 




#2822756 Appears that B.Bell may be watching from bench if things don't improve

Posted by MHS831 on 17 June 2014 - 08:18 PM

I am pulling for Chandler because, in my limited opinion, he has the best upside and athleticism.   However, I am not going to declare him the answer.  Williams has no more experience at LT in the NFL.  It is starting to sound as if we are going to shop for a potential T in free agency.

 

I feel good about Bell struggling.  Better to open eyes in June than in September.  Maybe Gettlemen knows now that the answer may not be on the roster.

I feel good about Chandler manning the RT position, if he can get some movement in the run game.  I am not ruling him out as the LT.

 

I think our G situation is solid, as is C.  We could be one T away from having a damn good OL.




#2820991 Carolina has almost $19M in dead money on the books

Posted by MHS831 on 16 June 2014 - 10:55 AM

That number would have been higher had we did what everyone thought we would do--cut Godfrey.  Not many people realize what a win-win that was.  We reduced the cap hit, didn't create more dead money, and kept the player at a bargain price.

 

Gettlemen may not be popular with the players (for reasons like this), but I am glad he is our GM.

 

I cannot wait to see him work when the dead money is normal and he has cap room.




#2820697 Jon Beason carted off field during non contact exercise.

Posted by MHS831 on 15 June 2014 - 10:51 PM

TDs second ACL tear was during the non-contact portion of OTAs, wasn't it?

 

unfortunately for beason, this kind of thing is going to be more common to him the rest of his career. he stayed healthy for most of his time here, but for some players that first injury is kind of like opening pandora's box because they become more susceptible to injury and they happen more frequently. that seems to be what happened to beason.

 

i actually saw him do it.  He was doing agility drills, back-peddling.
