Big chance for Ealy to make a statement.  


Let's go. 


Great attitude.  I hope he shows out.

There is no greater fear than that of a parent whose child's life is on the line.  It guts you.  Anyone who finds humor in that is sick.

Hey coach, you told me that I needed to improve.

Instead of writing "Bucs fans" you might save time by mentioning each of them by name.

#2924663 Is Darin Ganatt just a Twitter Troll?

You will never convince me that JR didn't get him fired.  Watch the pie chart presser again and see what he says to Gantt.  JR is not a fan of the press.  Exit DGantt, enter Joe Person, a writer too dumb to state anything more than what everyone already knows.

#2924441 Todd Gurley in the Late First Round?

Based on value and normal availabilty:


1. LT (This draft should be a good one for OTs)

2. DT (we need to remember that Edwards and Cole are old and ending contracts)

3. SS (I am probably OK with DeCoud and Boston --who is developing at FS, but SS is a bit cloudy)

4. OLB (Blackburn is probably gone and Davis is getting a bit old--find a backup LB)

5. DT (we need 2--however, this time, we break the habit of drafting back-to-back DTs)

6. RB (perhaps too high considering we can find them on the waiver wire and in the undrafted free agent market)

7. CB (depth at CB is not a bad thing)


Note I took no WR--Assuming our youth develops this year and we still have a vet or 2 under contract

#2920606 Caplan: Stephen Hill trying out for Panthers today

I agree with you man. If he isn't putting it together enough to stay on the Jets of all teams, there's something missing. 


He cleared waivers too.  If we are right by signing him, 30 other teams were wrong for letting him slip by (and the Jests for cutting him).


Everyone wants to find a Picasso at the yard sale.

  • From my perspective, WR is a position where people tend to gravitate toward the flashy players with speed opposed to the duller players who have refined the finer, technical aspects of the game.  As in baseball, everyone likes the home run hitter opposed to the singles hitter, even though the home run hitter strikes out twice as much.  In other words, how many 4.3 guys do you know with outstanding hands and technique?  You can count them on one finger, one hand if you consider NFL history.  On the other side of the coin, how many 4.6 WRs do you know who are dependable and solid in every phase of the game?  Jerry Rice & Michael Irvin, for example, were over 4.5.  There are only a few Randy Mosses and Calvin Johnsons in the history of the league. (both were in the sub 4.3 range)

Smitty was a flashy WR.  Last year, would you have sworn that he had more than 4 TDs and 745 yards---only 7.5 more yards per game than Lafell and one FEWER TD? But there were many on here who wanted Lafell gone and they wanted to guarantee Smitty $21m over the next 3 seasons to stay.   Most people were probably a bit surprised when they learned that Olsen had more yards.  Why the love for speed over production? 


Stephen Hill is a technique nightmare.  He body catches, he runs poor routes, he does not use his speed to his benefit.  You have to think, "What if..." when you see him, but I think he is a Drew Carter and nothing more.  I hope I am wrong if we sign him, but probably not.

That is an awesome idea.


The bride is one of my former students.  Her mother died of cancer (the same kind I had) so we got real close.  She asked me what I thought of her then fiance-I asked her who his favorite team is--she sent this picture to answer my question.

Congrats. My gift--you get a momentary break when they get out of diapers, but they gradually get more expensive as they age.

#2917997 Norwell and Foucault - 2 UDFA Offensive Linemen on the Final 53

Posted by MHS831 on 31 August 2014 - 07:16 AM

Whats crazy is some of them can play interior as well.


True--but we carry 4 DTs as well.  I don't think we can afford to carry 10 DL.


During the Pittsburgh game,  I think I saw 4 DEs in on a passing situation.  


I just do not see us carrying 6 DEs.  I would not be surprised to see a trade during the first four games of the season.

#2917693 Sign Stephen hill you assholes

Posted by MHS831 on 30 August 2014 - 09:14 PM

Let's see....the player who was drafted high and could not learn enough to see the field, a player with nearly every physical gift the good Lord can give a man, only to have his coaches and gm cut him...




                                     .                                                     vs




The small college white kid who was not drafted and sat on the practice squad for 2 years, working his ass off, learning from his coach, getting better, and pulling off the unthinkable.....





What to do, what to do?

#2916444 Final Panther cuts 8-30-2014

Posted by MHS831 on 30 August 2014 - 12:07 PM

I think about how we don't have a receiver on roster who could do anything similar.


What do we have? WRs that are tall (Cam tends to throw high).  WRs. that can catch the ball (Even Smitty dropped more balls than people care to admit--Lafell was born too late, after Stickum was outlawed.), WRs that don't punch teammates.  Our new WRs will improve while the crew from last year were at or past their peaks.


Look at the WRs and the TEs.  We are tailoring the offense for Cam.  Maybe we don't have a 35-year old speed WR who makes $7million for 745 yards and 4 TDs.  Is that really what people are bitching about?


Cutting Steve Smith saved this team $16 million over the next 3 years.  How happy would people be to see a 37-year old has-been counting $9m against the cap in 2016?  You have to see the complete film, not just the trailers.
