#2966664 Luke's jersey is best selling

I might take the tags off his jersey I bought at Goodwill and wear it tonight.

don't do that. wear those tags like a badge of honor.


#2966480 a whole lot of kuechly love from the steelers (w/ a little for TD as well)

Well, Indy was going to take Luck and I highly doubt anything could dissuade Redskins from taking Griffin, so it's just the 6 other teams that screwed up by not taking Luke

 

i would say the redskins screwed up by taking griffin and moving up to get him the way they did, esp. when they picked up the better QB several rounds later.

i was bored and couldn't sleep and i found this gem while perusing through a thread on a steelers forum.

 

very good read, imo.

 

excerpt:

 

The Force Is With This One

Over the last two seasons combined, the Panthers rank fourth in the NFL against the run and fifth overall defensively.

Remember those good ol' days, Steelers fans?

 

Yes, while the Steelers were finishing up their era of elite defensive standing, the Panthers ranked 24th overall in the 2010-11 seasons combined.

 

The seemingly abrupt change in the Panthers' defensive rankings over these last few years is due mainly to the drafting of middle linebacker Luke Kuechly with the ninth pick in 2012.

 

The NCAA's No. 2 all-time leading tackler (532) in only three seasons at Boston College, the Cincinnati-born Kuechly came to the NFL with the following names attached to the awards he received after his junior season: Dick Butkus, Vince Lombardi, Bronko Nagursky, Ronnie Lott and Jack Lambert.

 

Yes, there IS a Lambert Award for linebackers, but it's not likely Jack made a personal visit to Boston College to hand Kuechly his trophy the way Butkus did.

 

"I played against him," Steelers tight end Rob Blanchflower said of UMass's 45-17 loss to Boston College in 2011. "I just remember being very impressed with Kuechly and how good of an athlete he was, always making plays, coverage, blitzing. He was good at everything."

 

"I don't remember too much," Steelers running back Dri Archer said of Kent State's 26-13 loss to Boston College in 2010. "But I know we had a big game plan for him. He was just like he is now, but he's even better now."

 

"He's a great player," said Steelers linebacker Sean Spence. "Him being in the ACC I saw him play a lot. I had a chance to play against him. He's everything that everybody says."

.

.

.

"Luke Kuechly is quite simply one of the best in the business," said Mike Tomlin. "I think he is legitimately in the argument of a J.J. Watt in terms of some of the most exciting young football players in our game. There’s nothing that he can’t do. He is good at blitzing. He is good versus backs when he gets on running backs. Backs have a problem from a protection standpoint. He is a sideline-to-sideline tackler. He has innate instincts. He can slip blocks. He can defeat blocks physically. He is great in the passing game in zones and man. There is really nothing he can’t do. He doesn’t have many holes in his game as a linebacker."

 

"And you've got Thomas Davis right next to him," said Haley. "Those two are really the cornerstone of the defense as you watch on tape. They're in the middle of the action down in and down out. Up front they have a great rotation. But I would say it starts with 59 in the middle."

 

Davis, the weakside OLB in the Panthers' 4-3, leads the team with 22 tackles, with Kuechly trailing by three. Last season, Kuechly made 176 tackles to lead Davis and the rest of the team by 25.

#2966460 bersin ......here comes your chance son

Posted by rayzor on 21 September 2014 - 01:41 AM

one of the funniest things i see regularly in the huddle (and i guess every forum has them) are those people who feel it necessary to tell people to "tap the brakes" when they show a little bit of enthusiasm over a player or the team. and then in an effort to show just how much more "level-headed" they are, they blow comments way out of proportion.

"i'm excited to see what bersin can do this week" garners the response "WHOA! tap the brakes you bunch of homers. let's see the guy perform before we put him in the HoF, guys!"

where would humanity be without those clear minded individuals who rescue us daily from the dangers of a little bit of enthusiasm and optimism?

#2966399 Boycott Harris Teeter - Selling Steelers #1 cookies

Posted by rayzor on 21 September 2014 - 12:22 AM

Wow. Just plain ol fugging wow. All this butthurt over a cookie.

 

Now, those of you boycotting an evil company that might cater to an opposing football team make damn sure you don't go to the game tonight. Because you can bet they don't ask who they're fans of when they take that ticket or sell that beer. And, since it's a night game, Duke Energy is gonna be supplying power to those Steeler fans, so make sure you call 'em up Monday and cancel that poo. And get your water and sewer turned off, too, because they might supply the water that goes through a toilet that a Steeler fan uses. And boycott the roads that supply easy passage for those Steeler vermin to get to the stadium.

 

You show them. You show them ALL.....

 

i think you think the people in here complaining about this are taking this poo seriously.

 

and you would be right. not a bit of facetiousness is present at all. SCP means BUSINESS every single time he posts.

the thing that he has going in his favor is that he was one of the guys that cam favored in training camp and a bit in preseason, iirc, so there's a level of comfort. what helps that is that coverage will be rollin to other guys since he is an unknown element so if he draws any coverage at all, it won't be their best guys covering him. he should get open enough to make a few good catches.

You make a good point, however.....

Unfortunately, everything ultimately falls on the QB and HC.

i can kind of understand the HC, but QB? QB doesn't play defense. QB doesn't block for himself. QB doesnt catch his own passes. get the idea? there's 10 other people on the field with him and all of them play a role in whether the team wins or loses. and then there's the offense and special teams. and then there's the other team who might just be better all around than the team the QB is on. it doesn't ultimately fall on any one player anymore than one play wins or loses a game.check. those are false narratives that people who like good stories about football believe. it's just not true and it never has been. the game is bigger than one player.the QB is the most important player, but that doesn't make him the guy that wins or loses every game.

Been many a talented athlete that couldnt put things together and win when it matters. (playoffs/championship)

 

Cam is still young so that could change (i expect it to change this year tbt) 

 

I just feel that kind of money is for proven playoff / championship winners who are also elite during the regular season. 

 

i think that will be a valid point when QBs are the only one deciding who wins or loses playoffs/championships...which will likely never be the case since this is....well...a team sport.

Clutch 3rd down catches is what I'm looking for. Like last week

 

yep. we don't need him to be a wes welker guy who catches a bazillion passes. we just need him to be one of those reliable targets cam can go to on third down. anything else is gravy.
