#3219222 Jon Beason as backup LB?

Posted by rayzor on 24 January 2015 - 05:13 PM

kind of slow and limited to just playing MLB. not a good OLB and not a STer. he'd be only useful for giving kuechly a breather. he's a liability any other LB position.


rather have youth and/or versatility along with a healthy dose of speed that he can't provide.

#3219011 Hurney on Pats: Culture of Cheating

Posted by rayzor on 24 January 2015 - 01:04 PM

i will say that it wouldn't surprise me that pete carroll takes a few pages out of the billacheat book.


i wouldn't be surprised if dan quinn does as well. if the falcons have a drastic turnaround in their D production after quinn is hired, it could very likely be that it wasn't done honestly.

#3218190 Hurney on Pats: Culture of Cheating

Posted by rayzor on 23 January 2015 - 02:32 PM

So we're just going to go through the world with blinders on and refuse to ask Hurney the hard questions. I don't see anyone asking him about cheating, considering our o-line was on steroids.

ummm....not sure if serious but just in case



#3216085 colts know a good thing when they see it.block chud from other job offers.

Posted by rayzor on 21 January 2015 - 06:14 PM

chud is better than shula.


being better than shula doesn't necessarily make him a good OC.


he's innovative, but he has no idea how to manage.


like rivera, he needs someone to manage game situations for him because both were/are pathetic in that regard.



#3215449 So tell me

Posted by rayzor on 21 January 2015 - 08:12 AM

every team other than the panthers is the enemy along with their players and fans and coaches. it's really that simple for me.


i hate that we haven't been able to beat you guys.


i am jealous of the amount of luck that you guys....esp. wilson...has.


i think the designers of that stadium deserve more credit for the noise than the "12th man".

speaking of 12th man:



all that said, think that the seahawks are the real deal and yes, that pisses me off. despite the luck, you guys are good. i think pete carroll is much better than rivera. i like aggressive coaches. rivera has shown he can be, but he taps the brakes too often and then there's shula who pretty much rides the brakes on offense. i like the way your coaches and players acted after each game. they acted with grace, unlike those congadouches in san fran.


i also have varying degrees of dislike/hatred for teams. the pats and saints are about as despicable as you can get. i have no respect for either of those franchises. i think they cheat. but...i respect the seahawks. their fans? meh. the 10% that existed before a couple years ago i think are alright, but the 90% of that fanbase, as annoying and outright ignorant as they can be are still mild compared to the pats/steelers/cowboy fans in the world.


i would rather that be us in the superbowl and i feel our time is right around the corner, but since it's you guys agains the pats, i say take them down. i like what you guys did to the broncos last year exposing them for the mediocre team they are and i want you guys to do that to the pats. i think you can.

#3209830 New NFL Veteran Combine

Posted by rayzor on 18 January 2015 - 01:29 PM

I really do not care--it is the same bunch who says "Super Bowl" after every free agent signing. Besides, there may be someone who missed it the first time around.

thanks. i actually did miss this the first time around somehow.

seems like a great idea. players who don't get much hype, but who still have a lot to offer or who just want to get noticed get a chance to be seen by teams looking to find someone they might have otherwise missed out on.

the timing is good as well. no special trips have to be made by teams since they will all be represented there anyway.

#3208581 What do our South rivals need to do to make you worry?

Posted by rayzor on 17 January 2015 - 04:22 AM

bucs: get a stud QB and lovie pick up an aggressive minded OC and himself turn into an aggressive minded coach.


saints: a miraculous fixing of their cap, brees find the fountain of youth, them to live up to the hype they seem to generate yearly


falcons: a HC that actually wants to be there who isn't overrated from being in the right place at the right time (gase/quinn) and them to somehow pick up a stud future HoF TE, an OL that isn't broken, steal all the personnel from a top 5 defensive team, and matty ice hit puberty.

#3208577 So what is the expectation next year, NFCC game?

Posted by rayzor on 17 January 2015 - 04:14 AM

at minimum two of the follwing three:


1) winning season

2) win division again

3) nfcc game


we know the first two can be done.


we know we can have at least a 12 win season.

we know that we can win the division and looking at how all three teams are in bad shape we should be able to win it again

  • bucs still don't have a QB and they still have an overrated mediocre antiquated conservative minded coach,
  • falcons have no defense and no OL and no run game and a gambling fool for a GM and nobody wants to coach there,
  • and the saints have a HoF QB who is on a rapid decline, but whose contract (along with 4 others who will be either the first or second highest paid at their position next year) prevents them from doing much to improve anywhere and will be lucky to get their team under the cap without having to cut every reasonably priced player who won't kill them with dead money and replace them with scrubs from the CFL

we will be going into the season with 6(?) starters who were rookies this past season who will now have a year under their belt. i would expect a couple of them to lose their jobs to some upgrade somewhere and/or hit the rookie wall, but for the most part they along with the rest of this very young and solid team should improve heading into next year.


what we need to see is a greater sense of urgency heading into the season. jeremy talked at length about how that was absent from the team and said that it could very well cost them early wins and it definitely did. they need to come back hungry and ready to fight. i don't want us to blow our load all at once in the first part of the season like many teams who come running out of the gate looking like champs, but then peter out halfway through the season and miss the playoffs. i want us to still play our strongest ball in the last couple months and go into the post season hot, but i also don't want us to go into that hot streak having to dig out of a hole that we dug for ourselves.


with more money to spend and a GM that seems intent on bringing in a better class of "diamonds in the rough" as well as another solid draft class, i think the talent will be there on both sides of the ball and hopefully STs won't be the albatross around our neck it typically is.


all things are lining up for a successful run next year. i still have no faith in shula or rodgers and very little in rivera's ability to judge talent or manage the game, but this team has heart and talent. if they can't achieve great things next year, imo, it's on the coaching staff and their ability to take the talent that they've been handed and make it produce.


we also need to get rid of this "under the radar" and "underdog" mindset where we (fans and players alike) are afraid of being the king of the hill and being recognized as talented and having the expectations that come with that. it seems we want success, but quite a few are afraid of either failing or being the one that everyone wants to take down.


i expect this team to win and be not just better than average, but great.  we have the talent on both sides of the ball to do it. now it's just a matter of doing it. potential energy needs to turn into kenetic energy.

#3208302 Mike Tice asks out of Atlanta

Posted by rayzor on 16 January 2015 - 08:11 PM

wait, they didn't fire the whole staff? they are expecting to keep some of the coaches? including the OL coach? didn't the OL suck the past couple years?


and it's not just any OL coach. it's mike frikkin tice! why would you fight to keep him around?

#3208299 Why does NFL media hate Cam Newton? (Bear fans take on Cam.)

Posted by rayzor on 16 January 2015 - 08:08 PM

until we start winning on a regular basis, cam will get more blame than he deserves...esp. from narrow-minded sources. i accepted that quite a while ago. this is true with any QB. they get more credit for wins than they deserve and more blame for losses than they deserve.


cam is a dynamic personality, though, which means responses to him will be exaggerated.


we saw last year while we were winning the cam haters disappear. they only show up when things aren't going well (which was the case for this season despite winning the nfcs and a playoff game).


winning cures everything. when we start winning and cam does better, those people will either change their minds or crawl back under their rock.


people don't like it when their team loses and they look for the one simple reason their team is losing and lazily they look at the easiest to blame source, the QB. that's no different here.


the constant bitching about cam from the usual sources is annoying, but, again, it's just a few people doing it and i'm just not going to get worked up over those few no matter how noisy they are because 1) they are who they are and not worth the energy or listening to and 2) they don't speak for or reporesent me or the vast majority of fans. until we start winning, tho, we will hear them whine and bitch about him.


but, i believe in this team and i believe in cam and know that once we start winning regularly and cam gets more consistent with his young group of WRs and surprisingly solid OL, those clowns will shut up or continue to look as foolish as they always have.
