In Topic: Who is Allen Hurns?

30 September 2014 - 10:07 AM

I am still intrigued by Hurns.  I do like the big play ability because that is something every great WR has and so far he has flashed more of it than any other Jaguar's receiver.  Robinson is looking better than I expected given how little he showed during pre-season.  At this point, my expectation is that Cecil is gone after this year and Robinson and Hurns start on the outside with Lee starting in the slot.  One thing all three rookies have struggled with is staying healthy in the pros--and so that will be a key factor.  Many good, young players never really put it all together because injuries stunted their development.


In Topic: Ladarius Green's value

25 September 2014 - 05:06 PM

Graham, Gronk and Gates brokeout year two. JT was hurt his first couple of seasons. Rookie tight ends don't generally go nuts. Kelce was hurt his first season, he looks like a definite breakout TE. Green was raw as hell coming out, Gates has stunted his growth. I don't get the comparisons.

I think you have to take into consideration that Green is on a team with a HOF TE.  Even though Gates is old, he is still a great TE and so this has limited Green's targets and usage.  He is not going to be too useful until Gates truly is over the hill--and it appears most of us were wrong about his early demise--but for dynasty Green is still a very strong hold.


In Topic: Ray Rice video of KO punch released

She did hit him first.......

 

I don't have time to read the 12 pages in this thread already, but it is as simple as this.  I am quoted in other threads that this video will come out eventually and that it will show that she assaulted him first.  This video from TMZ has been HIGHLY ALTERED to make Ray Rice look worse.  She assaulted him first but they fudged that portion of the video.  Let's hope Ray can land on a team like the Colts.

Gotta be schtick, right?

No.  TMZ jacked this video up with rewinds and skips.  Did you watch the video?

TMZ now admits they edited the video.  Of course they are saying they "cleaned it up" instead of cutting out the parts where she was spitting on him.  Every single camera in every casino on this planet is HD quality, so the crap video you see of Ray Rice is to make him look worse.  Is that an excuse for what Ray did?  No, but spitting on someone is assault and battery:

 

Battery: Act Requirement

The criminal act required for battery boils down to an offensive or harmful contact. This can range anywhere from the obvious battery where a physical attack such as a punch or kick is involved, to even minimal contact in some cases. Generally, a victim doesn't need to be injured or harmed for a battery to have occurred, so long as an offensive contact is involved. In a classic example, spitting on an individual doesn't physically injure them, but it nonetheless can constitute offensive contact sufficient for a battery. Whether a particular contact is considered offensive is usually evaluated from the perspective of the "ordinary person".
 

It was OBVIOUS the video was edited from day 1, but I get called out for "schtick".  Ray Rice responded to battery in self defense - those are the facts of this case.

 

Are you trying to say that spittle is a "harmful weapon"?  Or that spitting causes severe injury?  Unless she has AIDs, I doubt that her spit caused a serious injury and it certainly is not a "harmful weapon."

 

Maybe in the minds of a machismo punk it justifies KO'ing a woman, but not to any decent man.

 

Maybe. But the law you posted doesn't sound like spitting is assault.

In Topic: Who is Allen Hurns?

Hurns or Allen Robinson? Hurns only had 1 catch yikes.

Hurns TD was on some horrible tackling by Indy. I like Robinson, but I can envision a scenario where both have garbage time value (which should be often with this defense). Robinson fits the WR1 mold better so I'm going with him.

 

I thought it was Hurns showing some great strength in running. I guess you could blame the tackling...who's to say but bottom line is that he broke two tackles and caught a pass with three defenders around him, avoided or broke away from all of them to score.
