#3260238 So be honest and completely objective.. Is there really a LT worth a true 1st...

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on Yesterday, 07:05 PM

For the 10th time.

Don't think there is a Tackle in the draft that can start on the left side his first year barring injury to a starter.

As far as the Giants when Gman was there, they took like one tackle in the first 3 rounds in all the years together if I am not mistaken.

If he sticks to those habits, I doubt we will go OT in the first, especially in a weak draft.

Look for a WR or DE to be our guy


I think there is better value for OT in rounds 2-5. Not saying G won't take an OT in the first but i think there will be guys available who could fit the team better. Peat and Flowers seem to be popular picks available at 25 but my gut says someone more intriguing will be available at another position of perceived need albeit less critical in some minds than OL.

Dilbert still rules and can be applied to all Western civilization work environments.


#3249226 Ecu's Draft

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 22 February 2015 - 03:40 AM

Love it but if we Pick DGB Big Cat will pull DG's shorts up another 4 inches and pull the drawstrings for the elastic waistband until GEts chokes to death.


#3249223 Ok, I need a meat and potatoes break down of who will actually be there at 25...

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 22 February 2015 - 03:20 AM

Ain't no telling. It all depends on what the 24 in front of us think.


I think between now and draft day there will be threads about more than 30 players who we could draft but will be taken before we pick at 25. Players will move up and down but generally, you are in a position to get a really good player in the first round. Let the OT and WRs jump up and have a Safety or DE fall.

We have a young core and are about to cycle thru a lot of vet contracts that will allow us to build. Problem is that those contracts will be replaced with new ones for guys like Cam Luke and Star. This is why I don't concentrate on the 1st round. Round 1 has been pretty much chalk but 2-7 are extremely important.

Last year we picked up what I see as 4 starters/core players in those rounds(Ealy, Turner, Boston and Bene) then grabbed Norwell as an UDFA. Not diminishing the contribution of Benjamin at all but the real value of the draft came later IMO.

I don't want to poo poo speculation because it's entertaining as hell and that's all we can do at this point but thought I would interject a different perspective.


#3247518 Well I screwed up the states economy but at least now I can fire teh gheys

To me sexual preference is like religion. Everyone should be allowed to practice freely without discrimination. Not sure why we waste our time invading people's privacy. There are actual problems we should be looking at and dealing with.


#3247111 Wow even WalMart is more in touch with reality than the RNC

There is no definitive study that proves raising minimum wage results in mass firings or higher unemployment.

Raising minimum wage and tying it to an economic barometer is a good thing, not sure why anyone would oppose it.

 

 

"Mass firings" and "higher unemployment" are anecdotal and calculated variables which in my mind are subjective.  There are some fundamental concepts that most people subscribe to and I think these concepts are taught in schools and may be introduced as early as the 5th or 6th grade.  These concepts are generally referred to as "economics". 

 

One of the basic premises of "economics" is this thing called the supply and demand curve.  I am simplifying the concept for obvious reasons but the premise is that in a free market there is a natural supply and demand for goods and services at a given price.  In an instance where the price of a good or service is changed upward(in this case the cost of wages) there tends to be less demand and greater supply.  That said if we raise minimum wage there will be a tendency for people to be less interested in hiring (or keeping people employed) and a higher interest on people getting a job.

 

This is neither a Republican view nor a Democrat rule.  This is the prescribed and overall generally accepted behavior of entities that operate in a free market.

Myth.

You should probably go read the economic studies done by UC Berkeley, among others, over the past 8-10 years as San Francisco has consistently raised their minimum wage above the national level for many years now. As recently as fall 2013, California's unemployment rate of 7.9% was higher than San Francisco's 4.7%, and SF has one of the highest minimum wage rates in the country.


Haven't read the studies but basic economics says otherwise. San Francisco is not Greensboro NC and it's not Lavonia GA.

Basic supply and demand takes precedence no matter how well designed these studies are. You don't have to believe me. Just look on the Google.


#3244166 Does Hardy situation scare panthers away from Green-Beckham?

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 17 February 2015 - 03:45 AM

I'm not one to judge a young kid on "youthful transgressions" but,i am of the thinking our brass might not want to deal with someone who has already been knocked for putting hands on a woman. We all know his baggage but could this one incident in particular already count against him with us because of hardy?


Me thinks even if we did not have the Hardy situation, this guy would be off limits in the draft. In 1998 Randy Moss was viewed as untouchable due to his "youthfulness transgressions" which were less over the top than Beckham's. I don't think Richardson has softened since then.


#3242309 Brandon Marshall could bump Smith out of Baltimore

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 14 February 2015 - 08:30 PM

Man reason is because they know that they have to get younger and Steve doesn't allow them to do that.


Smitty to the Pats. Ring = Canton in the bag me thinks.


#3236877 Combine all this Hardy crap

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 10 February 2015 - 08:45 AM

Hell, just make a Hardy sub-forum. The Cowboys board has a Romo one, why can't we have a Hardy one?

 

I think this idea should be introduced in a new thread.




#3233555 Jordanian pilot burned alive by Isil

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 07 February 2015 - 12:26 AM

When you say not good IMO what do you mean by that? Not saying your opinion isn't valid but was wondering what the negative affects of speeding up the process are.


You have a fair point there. My rationale is that Jordan had a prisoner and decided to put that prisoner to death immediately in reaction to ISIS. I just think that it gives ISIS more credibility because Jordan altered its Judicial system process in response to the actions of the rogue terrorist group.

I don't blame them for being pissed and taking action though. Just don't thing they should have altered internal state business based on the action of thugs.


#3232415 Those Dallas Right Tackles

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 05 February 2015 - 07:09 PM

I'm just glad we can have conversations about picking up solid additions to either start or build a good rotation. Would love to have either of those guys here. In general would be happy with getting 2 solid/good FA ( suspect this will be OL and DB) and maybe a couple dollar store Dave rentals. Combine that with another strong draft class and it will be a great offseason IMO.


#3231690 The Nominee of the GOP

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 05 February 2015 - 08:55 AM

No I'm afraid you do not "got it" and you are acting like a baby, I cannot believe something as non controversial as vaccinating becomes a political bitch.


I have heard people from both sides of the aisle speak against vaccinations. IMO the commonality is that they are all extremely misguided. Personally I am hit and miss on the yearly flu shot as it is a chance game but the big nasties (Polio, MMR, etc...) are a different matter.


#3231662 Why are guys better looking than girls?

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 05 February 2015 - 07:44 AM

Had you just posted the initial thread title I would have told you hat society allows guys to be flawed and the unrealistic expectation is that a women should be perfect.

But after reading the entire post, my answer is that there are clinics that provide surgery to help you. Most are in Thailand. FTW.


#3230654 Manziel Enters Rehab

Posted by Pejorative Miscreant on 04 February 2015 - 09:43 AM

Johhny Manziel not only has an addiction problem but also an attitude problem that goes along with his immature nature. Checking into rehab to get treatment is just a small step in the right direction. His problems could be a long term and constant recurring situation, i hope for his sake,this will not be the case.


Liked this post because I think you have both hope and trepidation. Hopefully these two things are not mutually exclusive and by dealing with one (addiction) he can address the other(attitude).
