#3184048 We gave up, they never did

Posted by cranky on 07 January 2015 - 06:05 AM

let's be honest, the only reason we even get to have this conversation is because the second place team in the NFCS couldn't muster a better record than 7-8-1. the only reason we're counting these hardships as memorable bumps in the road instead of kicks while we're down is because this division was historically pathetic.

 

but nobody could help that, and whether or not the team deserved our support before is irrelevant. they deserve it now. i can't fuging wait for saturday.

So your saying they didn't deserve your support because they weren't winning? 




#3165874 2014 Panthers Rookie Grades

Posted by cranky on 31 December 2014 - 12:34 PM

Understand your sentiments, but as Jeremy said, 'he was the 28th draft pick cast into the role of starter/#1 receiver, and put up big time numbers' in Shula's offense, remember?

 

Sure he had some key drops (including last week); which is the reason for his A- grade. However, it doesn't take away from all which was cast upon his this year and what he produced. Okay, so you give the A+ to Odell Beckham Jr. :cool:

 

I would agree, Jeremy took a more optimistic take overall. I would have, maybe given KB a B+ grade myself (especially after what happen last week and recent games). But if you would have asked me not to long ago, an A- grade may have sufficed as well?

 

I won't argue with a B+ - especially if he has a good game or two in the playoffs.

Benjamin's is way too high. Numbers are meaningless if the catch or TD comes at the wrong time. 50% catch rate with multiple drops in the endzone or on third downs do not contribute to wins - just losses. I would only give him a C+ as a 1st rounder. I would give Brown the A as a UDFA. Guy has been more dangerous and a lot more dependable the Benjamin over the last few games. He and Benwikere are the real stars of this draft.




#3142648 When it comes to coaching...

Posted by cranky on 19 December 2014 - 11:36 AM

And for every Avant, there is a Ted Ginn or Mike Mitchell. Both played very well here under the same coaches and yet are struggling with other teams. Or there's Mike Remmers, a castofff who couldn't make it as a starter anywhere else and yet has excelled in his limited time here. Personaly, I think the one thing the coaching staff is good at is getting the most from the players they have.




#3132022 Knights of NFC South Futility is now in session!

I don't really post much here but the article is funny enough that I though some of you wold appreciate it. Go to the preview between the Saints and Chicago towards the bottom of the article.

#3113493 Curious, how did Mike Remmers do at RT?

Posted by cranky on 01 December 2014 - 12:39 PM

Eh, Stewart and Tolbert did well, Williams continues to kill drives with his shitty running.
 

 

Tolbert had 5 yards on 2 runs. For the year he has a total of 16 yards on 15 attempts for a .9 yrd/att average. How is that doing well? I think your prejudice is blinding you.




#3113142 report: Jets and Raiders looking to trade for Harbaugh

Posted by cranky on 01 December 2014 - 08:55 AM

First, Harbaugh would never want to come here and secondly, JR would never allow it. And that pretty much sums up this franchise!




#3091918 Seriously, is there anybody you hate more than Roman Harper?

Posted by cranky on 16 November 2014 - 07:08 PM

Actually he was going afte the ball....he just moves so slow, it's hard to see.




#3074653 Teams that would "break the bank" for Cam Newton....

Posted by cranky on 09 November 2014 - 07:59 PM

...The even bigger joke is many feel that this young man will not be the highest paid QB in NFL higher, mark my words, he will.

 

If he is the highest paid, then someone overpaid.




#2862932 maybe some good news for Hardy

Posted by cranky on 24 July 2014 - 10:22 AM

You really want to keep him after you add up everything he has had happen and what we know about him being a little off?

 

I love the player Hardy is. He is easy to root for on the football field. But let's not kid ourselves he may not be guilty of what he was convicted of but he isn't 100% innocent and its only a matter of time before there is something else.

I more of a lurker than poster here but I cannot not comment here.

 

Don't you think you're being a bit unfair to Hardy at this time. I have no idea what happened that night but until he's actually found guilty (on appeal) don't you think he deserves the benefit of doubt. I don't ever recall him being involved in any other domestic disputes so it's not like he has a history with it so why are you so quick to dismiss him. 




#2587560 Shula in the Playoffs

Posted by cranky on 05 January 2014 - 02:12 PM

10th? No way. That site calls those stats Offensive Efficiency Ratings. On actual stats they were 11th in rushing offense but 29th in passing.

I know what they call them and regardless of the semantics, they rank the overall offense as the 10th highest (or 11th highest adjusted) which is way higher than 26th. 




#2565172 Adam Schein Still A Schmuck; Throws Cam Shade/Backhand Compliment

Posted by cranky on 25 December 2013 - 09:48 AM

He's just trying to justify his earlier opinions of Cam. Saying comeback player supports his idea that Cam was bad last year. If he doesn't say comeback, then he would have to admit he was wrong and we all know that will never happen. 

 

Just another example of some poor prognosticator trying to cover his ass. Nothing new here.




#2564682 Shula is sticking around for awhile

Posted by cranky on 24 December 2013 - 07:08 PM

This organization needs to start aiming higher.

 

I agree! 11-4 is not nearly good enough, going 16-7 over their last 22 games is not good enough, having one of the best 3rd down conversion rates isn't good enough and having one of the best red zone offenses isn't good enough. I don't care that they have accomplished all this with a mediocre receiving group and patchwork OL. I also do not care that in Shula's first year Newton has had 4 last minute scoring drives whereas he had 0 in his previous two. I know some people would look at all this and see a group who is overachieving but we both know the truth.

 

If they would only aim higher.




#2487408 Eric Reid's father thanks Tolbert

Posted by cranky on 14 November 2013 - 08:29 PM

Seems to me the powers that be in the NFL are missing out on a positive message here. If it was me, I would be showing the reply over repeatedly. You would think with all the negative crap out there right now with Incognito, they would want to show something positive for a change. Guess not.




#2481429 All of you Shula haters

Posted by cranky on 11 November 2013 - 01:37 PM

Shula hater checking in

sup?

I'll admit I'm wrong when we're 13-3

 

Well then you must hate 95% of all OC as I am pretty confident there won't be many 13-3 teams this year.

 

Your standards are a bit unrealistic don't you think.
