#2158714 Revis likely to land in our division(Bucs)

Posted by rayzor on 12 March 2013 - 02:28 PM

not worried.

it would be incentive for us to try and get another dynamic playmaking WR and boost the WR corps as a whole.


#2158470 No news on Gross

Posted by rayzor on 12 March 2013 - 12:29 PM

I'm not disappointed players are volunteering to give up their money at the end of their careers.

It's a business to them, loyalty plays a very small part.

this. to us its little more than monopoly money b/c it's just an obscene amount of money. to them, it's a significant amount of what should end up being their retirement and their ability to support their family.

sorry, but there's no organization i would work for where i would volunteer to take less money unless my job or maybe the future of the company as in closing its doors for good. to take less money just so the org. had more cash for operating? nah....not my fault they didn't plan well enough.


#2158419 No news on Gross

Posted by rayzor on 12 March 2013 - 12:09 PM

I am simply worried that the franchise asked Gross to restructure and he has yet to comply. If today was the cutoff, like most of us thought it would be, not hearing anything at this point could mean Gross is on the chopping block. Which would be a huge mistake. Maybe I am reading too much into it and making way to many assumptions.

Which is why I asked the huddle's opinion. Or maybe this website isn't for inquiring about things, only posting about Cam handing out donuts in class

acting snarky isn't going to help bring more discussion. you end up looking like a whiny bitch.

and yes...you are reading too much into it and making too many assumptions.


#2157194 boldin traded to the 49ers for a 6th round pick

Posted by rayzor on 11 March 2013 - 03:20 PM

Ugh, a fugging sixth!? Now this you can get pissed about Rayzor lol.

if we didn't have a billion dollars wrapped up in the RB corps and a backup MLB we could have swung that contract of boldin's.


#2153942 Drafting a Guard in the first round

Posted by rayzor on 07 March 2013 - 03:21 PM

I'm not a fan of the whole "you don't draft this position at this level" mindset. There are exceptiopns (taking a kicker at #1 overall, for example) but generally speaking, I say if you think Player X is the best guy to take at your spot, then take him.

it can never and should never be as simple as just that.

need must be accounted for in that decision...like if the BPA is a MLB or a QB or an RB...do we really take one over DT, CB, WR, FS, etc.?

also, what is my board looking like for that position later? can i find someone of nearly equal value later? is there a thinner grouping for this position than others?

is this position as crucial for the team as others, esp. crucial enough to warrant this early selection?

there's just too many factors to take in.


#2153410 Drafting a Guard in the first round

Posted by rayzor on 06 March 2013 - 11:55 PM

I couldn't disagree more about DT. It's a premier position.

comes with a higher bust rate than other positions and still takes a couple years to not look bad. harder to get a legit day one starter than other spots.


#2151908 Which 2013 O-Line combo gives us the best chance to win more that 7 games?

Posted by rayzor on 05 March 2013 - 02:40 PM

quickest/best/cheapest fix is having a healthy kalil and bringing in a vet RG. a step further in the right direction would be picking up another RT in FA that is better than bell. shouldn't be too hard to pull off, esp. for a decent price.

the real weak link is the right side. the left will be fine...not studly, but fine with kalil back and amini having a year under his belt. i'd still expect to see amini struggle, but mainly because he's still in his first couple years where they are likely to have roller skates for cleats.

the right side can be upgraded pretty easily without breaking the bank.

we don't need a stud OL. we don't need perenial all-pros or even pro-bowlers (not that the pro-bowl designation means jack). we just need guys who aren't going to get pushed around and who can get a little bit of a push. with the RB corps that we have (way under-utilized, overpaid, but still reaaaalllly good), and cam being the mobile playmaker that he is, we just don't need much on the OL except for being serviceable.

i would say adding another playmaker to the WR corps who can get open and handle/command double teams with a serviceable OL would help out a lot more than having an elite OL with our receiving corps as-is.


#2149240 We are going to get raped once Cam's contract comes up...

Posted by rayzor on 01 March 2013 - 07:41 PM

I have a great idea! Trade Cam for a crap load of picks this year and Draft Geno!








































I'm serious.




#2148988 An example of Bill Polian's "genius"

Posted by rayzor on 01 March 2013 - 04:05 PM

He sure had a lot of success for being such an awful GM...

drafted peyton manning. that's about the extent of it. nothing else special about what he did.

btw, he's the guy that hired jim mora, sr. he wasn't allowed to hire any coaches after that and he was against hiring dungy.

polian isn't liked around the league. he and his son are considered toxic, meddlers, and pricks.

their success had everything to do with peyton and little to do with building a team. they had a lot of success drafting from '98-'06, but after that was considered pretty bad...and a lot of that had to do with their personnel guru and top talent evaluator, dom anile, getting pushed out of the job by polian's son.

i've said it many times...bill polian is overrated around these parts.


#2146561 This is why no one takes Florio seriously as a writer

Posted by rayzor on 27 February 2013 - 02:13 PM

lots of reasons to point and laugh at florio.

this wasn't one.


#2142619 Once Gamble is Cut, Cornerback Becomes Our Biggest Need

Posted by rayzor on 23 February 2013 - 09:02 PM

gamble is a player we can move away from and barely notice. he's not a difference maker. we're not any better or worse of because of him being on or off the field.

it's not any more of a need than it was before.


#2142401 According to Person we're keeping Williams...

Posted by rayzor on 23 February 2013 - 03:45 PM

I don't see where or how is it that we're keeping Williams. If it's just because Gettleman said, "I don't see why not." That's not enough to actually believe williams will stay here.

Had he said. "Yes, there are no plans to cut Williams." Then I would believe it. This sounds more like he's putting the ball on Williams court. I'm expecting a restructure.

Keep in mind that he also said that he would do what he has to do.

exactly. pure speculation on behalf of person with this article.


#2141499 Everyone be honest.

Posted by rayzor on 22 February 2013 - 01:29 PM

People say cut Gamble and D-Lo because it's the popular thing to say, but if we can get under the cap with them restructuring, then I say keep the both of them.

agreed, but when i think restructuring with those two guys and beason....it's gonna have to take a thomas davis type restructure where you basically rip up the old contract and sign a new one that won't hurt the cap.
