I am not. I am sure we can beat the Falcons. If we fail to beat them, then I will join you guys.
We won't be beating the Falcons. They will feast on our secondary and I'm sure our offense will continue to look inadequate. They're also coming off of a win (albeit the Bucs), something we haven't experienced in some time.
To be honest I'm not sure we could beat anyone right now.
The only thing giving me hope on Thursday is the fact that the Saints are a completely different team on the road. But coming off of a big win (pending) against a team who just crushed us on a short week doesn't seem promising to me. Especially since we lost a tough game today.
It'll be interesting to see how the team responds mentally. I hope they understand it is as close to a must-win situation as there will be this season.
Initially, I thought it was a clean hit. But, Seabrook could have slowed down a bit once the puck was gone, which is the only reason he deserves punishment. Seabrook had it in his mind that he was going to hit him regardless if he got the puck or not. A few years ago and that hit is fine and most are blaming Backes for watching the puck, just a different day and age although I do agree he deserved some type of penalty. 3 games is too much IMO
Nathan MacKinnon will be the best player in the league in 2-3 years, mark my words. You could already argue he's top 5.
Had the privilege to watch him here in Halifax a few times. Same type of player as Crosby (both from same town, schools, and training as well), extremely strong skater with high hockey-IQ. He was a man among boys in Junior and you could tell he was going to be special, he and Crosby will soon be 1-2 in the NHL.
Habs-Bolts was a very exciting game. Glad my boys came out on top, don't know how many more of those I can take though, very intense. From what I saw from Pitt-CBJ it was exciting too, but I feel as though that is what the series will be like - CBJ battles hard every game, may even win 2 games - but fall short in the end.
This guy is an absolute beast. My good friend plays QB for St.Mary's University and was able to see Duvernay-Tardif play this past season and said that he was the best athlete/football player he's ever seen. The impressive thing is he's in med school and has little time to practice during the week but yet he was still able to dominate come gameday.
His workouts/one-on-ones are impressive but I havn't seen any game tape, but based on the fact that several teams were at his pro day a couple of days ago, including the Cards GM, must mean something. Hard to judge a CIS guy going to the NFL but if he's there in the later rounds then I wouldn't be opposed. Everything I've heard has been positive
I see where Hoge is coming from but to say he won't/can't change is a little over the top. He just needs some good coaching and motivation to get him to an elite status. The thing is Clowney has never needed to do certain things because he's such a freak.
