#2550017 Any idea why short hasn't earned a starting spot next to star?

Posted by SmashNDash on 17 December 2013 - 04:01 PM

I mean from what i've seen he's been every bit as good as Edwards when allowed to play. You draft a guy in the second round i exspect him to start. He's proven to be one of the best pass rush Dt's in this class so why not let him play like one.Don't get me wrong Edwards hasn't done anything to lose his job and is playing beyond servicable. But the question remains when is it Short's time?

This misconception that every draft pick has to start, even if it's second round, has to end.  I'm not sure where this obsession came about around here, and it truly reached it's peak of idiocracy when people cried about Kug being drafted in the 5th round and couldn't be a immediate starter, THE FIFTH ROUND.  

 

Few successful teams have plug and play rookies unless it's due to injuries or huge holes, and it definitely wasn't a policy around here til Rivera came and Cam started immediately.  During the Fox days, and as with the case of a lot of coaches, and a rookie needs to be heads and toes better then a vet on the team to start.  Rarely did a rookie start for us in the Fox days, and if he did it was generally a first round pick.  Hell even Thomas Davis was a rotation/QB spy only linebacker his first year here.  Now people expect the entire draft class to start, with this thread going, and the people whining about 6th round pick Kenjon in the other thread.  You do realize there is about 22 starting spots on the entire team, if you're starting 5-7 rookies, you have issues.

#2539460 Should we get Alshon Jeffrey in the 5th round??

Could have had Josh Gordon or Alshon for dirt cheap, but nooooo....




#2537109 Should Ron be fired or kept?

Posted by SmashNDash on 09 December 2013 - 01:01 AM

Yes they should keep him, they would be dumb not too, and anyone who questions that is a moron, which we have plenty of those around here tonight.  The team has taken a drastic step forward, even with a ton of holes to fill.  Restarting with a new coach, new system, and possibly new QB is going to set us back years.

Josh Gordon with combined 180 yards so far....we should have traded a 1st and 2nd for him, no joke.

man the COLTS and Luck absolutely suck.

This too, Luck is my fantasy QB and has been a utter disappointment.

RG3 is so bad now, it's almost not funny.  Oh wait, yes it is.




#2515385 Who is now an Auburn fan because of Cam Newton

Posted by SmashNDash on 26 November 2013 - 09:23 PM

Wouldn't say I'm an Auburn fan because of Cam, especially since that coaching staff tanked the year after and has been replaced, but I will most certainly be cheering on Auburn to beat 'Bama.




#2513273 Cam Newton's "Flop" and "Acting" Is What Got Us The Win -...

Posted by SmashNDash on 25 November 2013 - 02:51 PM

on an unrelated note how did cam injure his hand? i remember the announcers mentioning him dealing with his right index finger but i never saw what happened.

 

There was a pass to Smith that came out extremely wobbly and you can see on the replay that he hit the rusher with his hand, probably on the helmet or shoulder pad, in the middle of his throwing motion.
 




#2512963 Hypothetical: Mike Wallace Catches the Bomb at the End

Posted by SmashNDash on 25 November 2013 - 11:33 AM

Of course not. No one really will because it's been decided on the Huddle that Mitchell is a GREAT player which means all his plays are GREAT. His non-GREAT plays all have a reason.

 

If it had bee a BAD huddle player it would have been a BAD play no matter what.

 

Huddle false narratives are no better than ESPN's.

Go back and look at the play and watch how long it is before Tannenhill throws it up.  If you've ever played football before, even the backyard variety, you know how hard it is to cover 1 on 1 when the quarterback has forever to throw, not to mention if you're hurt and covering one of the fastest guys in the NFL.  Wallace was running an improvised route, Mitchell had to guess where he's going to be.

 

 

As for "good Huddle" and "Bad Huddle" players, there is a reason Fua and Nakamura were cut, and Mitchell is a starter, and it's not based on what the Huddle thinks.




#2512933 Hypothetical: Mike Wallace Catches the Bomb at the End

Would be nice if Michell took responsibility for his terrible angle that made that play possible.

The play extended forever and the guy was playing hurt, not going to blame his terrible angle on a random jump ball.




#2510920 late hit on Cam was epic performance

Posted by SmashNDash on 24 November 2013 - 06:10 PM

That's the 15 yards they owed us for missing the helmet to helmet on the first drive.




#2510068 When it looked like Wallace would catch that TD for a second...

Posted by SmashNDash on 24 November 2013 - 04:28 PM

Luckily as fast as Mike Wallace is, he's really only a slightly better Ted Ginn.




#2510058 RIVERBOAT IS THE REAL DEAL

Way to go Ron, you made the 2nd half adjustments that were needed, I want an extension in the offseason.

This team just loves to fail

Why don't you turn off the game and go watch some more anime and fap.

Stop whining, some of you need to jump off the bandwagon now if you're crying about 4 points behind in the 2nd quarter.
