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

Posted by cranky on 13 December 2014 - 09:52 AM

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

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.




#2445144 McDermott and Shula

Posted by cranky on 23 October 2013 - 11:36 PM

My God...they've only won 3 games. You would think the Panther's had just won the SB.

 

I don't think anyone is going to be knocking on the doors to hire them away at this point. MAYBE in a year or two but only if they prove they can produce consistently.

 




#2418676 Competency Trumps Continuity

Posted by cranky on 08 October 2013 - 06:28 PM

Tons of coaches wanting a shot to audition themselves as an OC.

 

This is such an invalid argument. Any time a coordinator position opens up, there are tons of people interested. The problem is the panthers were very focused in their search, mainly loser retreads. How about giving a young upstart a chance.

 

Needless to say I disagree. Sometimes not taking a promotion is the best step long term for a career. I've read where a OC or DC has declined an interview for a HC job because they didn't feel they were presented with an opportunity to succeed and given the tenuous between Rivera and JR, I know I wouldn't of had a warm fuzzy feeling about the job/opportunity myself.

 

I'm certainly not defending Shula as I felt it was a terrible choice but do you really think JR's phone was ringing off the hook for the position given his handling of Rivera and Fox. If you felt you only had one chance to show everyone what you could do, would you really have wanted to come here this year to prove it knowing that Rivera could be a fired at any time and with him, would go your one opportunity. 




#2399964 Rivera's Presser Today is a Great Watch

Posted by cranky on 25 September 2013 - 11:25 PM

I like Rivera and have always thought he will make a hell of a good coach - if he can just learn to manage the game a little better. He's close - very close. There's no guarantees but I'd bet on his success.




#2393862 Who Does the Game Ball go to?

Posted by cranky on 22 September 2013 - 03:36 PM

M. White. Amazing performance given he is a undrafted rookie free agent.
