In Topic: Julio Jones didn't practice again today

Today, 01:18 PM

I realize where you are coming from but playing scared does not pay off in the long run.It sends a message to the team that you have no confidence in their ability to pick up needed yardage.

 

90% of the coaches in the league would have played it the same way.

 

Just because a bunch of idiot madden wannabe coaches and GM's think they know how to only makes these discussions more amusing.

Nope. I've always preferred aggressiveness to the "play not to lose" mentality. Rivers doesn't trust the players...

Had we been aggressive and thrown an int or fumbled, so be it. I'd rather lose trying to win than lose being a chicken ass chicken.

 

I would rather win by playing for the FG than lose trying to be agressive....which is what woudl have likely happened if Gano had not pulled the kick.


In Topic: If Atlanta AND Cleveland win this weekend....

Today, 07:46 AM

Saints won't be eliminated if that happen.

 

Yes they will be eliminated.

 

If the Panthers and Falcons win, the Saints are eliminated and it sets up a winner take all game next week in Atlanta.

 

If the Falcons win Sun and then the following week, they are 7-9.

 

If the Panthers win Sun and then the following week, they are 7-8-1.

 

If the Saints lose Sun and then win against TB, they are 7-9....they lose to both Panthers and Falcons on record.  One more loss than Panthers and tied with Falcons (but Falcons would have won both head to head).

 

 

 


In Topic: Cam. The new era

Today, 07:43 AM

The fact is, Cam himself said that when he saw the truck as he laid on the ground he wondered why he wasn't dead.

Your uninformed opinion on the wreck's severity is irrelevant.

If Cam believes he came close to death, which he probably did, it can indeed have a transformative effect on him. Anyone with a similar incident in their past knows this. Heavily traumatic experiences have a way of diminishing the small things we worry about.

 

You are absolutely correct that it can have a transformative effect on you. 

 

But, you never know what that effect will be on someone.  He may very well reflect on the incident and decide football is not as important that he once thought....which could be a negative thing to his focus and play.  Or, it may be that he realizes that life is fleeting and to enjoy every second because it can be taken away at any moment....and gets even more serious about his development and play.

 

Point is that this incident did and will change Cam (it always does)......question is how.


In Topic: Favorite breakfast place in Charlotte area?

Yesterday, 05:14 PM

It's great. I try to go for breakfast whenever I'm in town.

 

There will be a wait if you don't get there early.

 

No wait means shitty food.....that is why I never mind the wait when I go out to eat.
