The Combine in Charlotte?


Recommended Posts

Fans don't attend any of the big conferences in any city or own but they are still good for local economirs. There are fan activities and I can't imagine many would go if they could.

Like I asked, why woukd anyone not want it here?

The good thing about the combine is that you can compare athletes at the same position doing the same drills in the same place on the same surface at the same time. That can be valuable because there is no change in the testing conditions.
 
What do you do in the NFL combine?
 
Tests/evaluations include:
 
40-yard dash.
 
Bench press (225 lb repetitions)
 
Vertical jump.
 
Broad jump.
 
20-yard shuttle.
 
3 cone drill.
 
60-yard shuttle.
 
Position-specific drills.

What was your point?

It took over 7000 posts but you finally made one that was above an IQ of about 60. Congrats!

Combine is late February and early March

Charlotte average temp's are 59/38 on average for that period of time.. 

No dome = No chance. 

 

This is valid. TBH, the combine is made for indoor venues.

I'd assume this would be at the new practice facilities if anywhere.

I think the new practice facility in SC would make the most sense to host the combine. But the draft being held in uptown sounds like a fantastic idea and a great way to show off the city.

It would actually be a pretty big boost for Rock Hill.  Getting your small cities name in hundreds/thousands of by-lines only helps (I mean unless you are beating black people at a gas station).  Plus there would be be hundreds of rooms booked down there.  I am sure press will be allowed back next year.  

I am sure they will bid on for 2024+

We know they have already bid on the draft and I am sure Roger is eventually throw a bone to his richest owner.

    • Thought I remembered that name. https://www.si.com/nfl/video/2018/08/15/josh-norman-praises-sam-darnold hope he’s ok, doesn’t try to be all macho and come back before he’s ready.
    • lol at all the folks laying that at Paradis feet. Even if Paradis and Miller had handled that stunt correctly, Sam was still getting sacked.  They brought six guys against our five protection.  Someone was getting free, and the first guy to the QB came off the left. Now, as I understand it, the goal is to make the QB account for the guy with the longest path to the QB in those situations.  The correct line call here was shift left.  It looked like Daley and Erving did that, but Paradis, Miller and maybe Moton were shifting right. The question is what was the line call and who went the wrong way. If shift left was the call (and I think it should have been), then the stunt that beat Daley and Paradis wouldn't have worked.  Additionally, Chuba could have chipped the wide defender on the side he went to.  If you watch Moton's footwork, he wasn't postured to block a wide rusher.  I just can't tell if that was because his guy stunted inside, or because he heard shift left. If shift right was the call, the stunt might have worked anyway, but in that case, it would have been the guy Erving blocked who would have had a free rush at the QB, because Erving would have blocked Daley's guy and Daley would have blocked the guy who ultimately got the sack. Basically, it looked like the line call may have been misheard or something, because the line was executing two different calls there.
    • Listen I dont think anyone is poo pooing this trade.  A few of us are looking big picture at how we are going to fix the line going forward.  We used FA this offseason to try and fix it but you see how that is working.  Not having a day 2 pick is pretty big and I am not sure how you are going to get those picks back outside of trading down in the first.  Which I would hate to do if there is a tackle within range.   I do love the trade just playing devils advocate on how we can make the line better.
