In Topic: Map Of Most Hated Teams

12 December 2014 - 11:35 AM

Every NFC North team hates the Packers for having back to back bad ### QBs continually keeping them contenders to win the division. 

Would have probably looked different through the 70s and 80s when the Packers sucked.

Very true. I am guessing the Vikings would have been most hated in 70s and 80s in the region.  I grew up watching in the 70s and just remember beating down everyone in our division so badly so often that I don't really hate any of our divisional rivals.  I hate the Coboys because of cheating Drew Pearson pushing off on our CB, Wright, in 1975 NFC Conference Championship and winning on last second cheating TD.  That was our best team and best chance to win a SB and it was stolen. O well.  And o yeah, the way the cheating Cowboys structured the Hershell Walker deal is another reason to hate them.  Each player in the deal was tied to a pick--if the Cowboys did not keep a player in the deal they would get a corresponding pick and if they didn't keep a player on their active roster then they lost the corresponding pick. But somehow they appealed to NFL commissioner and were able to keep both the players and the picks.


In Topic: U of Tennessee WR Justin Hunter

Justin Hunter placed on Tennesee Titans' IR

 

Excerpt:

 

 

With prototypical size, speed and leaping ability, Hunter fit the profile of a talented breakout candidate entering September.

 

For the second straight year, though, the 2013 second-round draft pick was done in by shaky quarterback play, unreliable hands and questionable toughness.

 

The drop-prone Hunter has finished each of his first two seasons near the bottom of all NFL wide receivers in catch rate. Simply put, he has been one of the least effective players at his position.

 

It's premature to write off Hunter as a draft bust, but his inability to absorb contact and still come down with the ball at the point of the catch puts him closer to Darrius Heyward-Bey than Alshon Jeffery as far as career models go.

 

 

Reads like an article about Stephen Hill from last year.

 

I don't think so.  Hill had Eli throwing him the ball.  And Hunter did show at times this year what he is capable of doing. Hill never showed as much talent as Hunter has.

Looks pretty good to me.  Nice gesture from the players.  :shrug:

I agree.  They have a right to speak about something that is happening in their own community.

I am feeling optimistic about Bridgewater's future.

Jennings has been a waste of cap space. I hope they let him go.
