  1. Hey Greg, cut this down for space, nice post. SO having shared all that info, do you feel Gordon is gonna receive a 16 game suspension?
  2. Henderson is an independent arbitrator, why would he care about Ray Rice? Because Roger Goodell does and the Shield matters here. If Henderson comes back and says 16 game suspension, might not sit well with female fans. Henderson might have ruled immediately, perhaps Goodell is sitting on it and figuring out what is best. There are bigger things going on besides us drafting at the 10 hole is all I'm saying. I understand your point though.
  3. My apologies as I am sure someone has likely spoken about this. It's hard to see the NFL suspending a player for the season smoking 2nd hand marijauna and then allowing only a 2 game suspension for Ray Rice beating the hell out of his fiancé all on videotape for the World to see. That has to be what is taking Henderson so long on this. Well there's that and then possibly never being hired by the NFL again if he messes this up, lot of pressure from all sides as we wait for the suspension to be handed down. It seems many feel it is all or nothing, a full season or nothing. So while I cannot see the NFL wanting his suspension to be as long or longer than beating a woman, I also cannot fathom a player who entered the league with these type of problems already, just can't see him getting no suspension. I believe a 4-8 game suspension would have been handed down already if Henderson were allowed to do so but because of the way the wording is set on this, we go back to 16 games or none. What a mess.
  4. Sick trolling dude. But yea, they're not releasing or trading one of the best on-the-field rookies last year who is locked up for another three years on an insanely cheap rookie contract over a bag of weed. Give me a break, dude. Your words and that's exactly why they don't have to put up with this. I'll take the sick trolling as a compliment, I certainly am not trying to incite a riot and I expect the Steelers to suspend him without much Goodell intervention. I could be totally wrong but they have let plenty go over the years who don't walk the company line. We'll see what happens.
  5. This kid has been a baller since his days at FIU. He has the jets and he makes plays. He is a perfect WR3 if you go top heavy that way, likely gonna have weeks like 120/2TD, next week 4/42, next week you get 110/TD, he is a little up n down but those weeks he hits, he hits for distance.
  6. Let's just go over the list and correct me where I'm wrong. -Already on the substance abuse policy/plan even before he was drafted. -Missed a year in college. -Has been pulled over with marijauna in the car -Failed the NFL drug test however you want to slice it. 16 game season? less than 5% 14 game season? less than 10% 10-12 game season? 35% 8 game season or less? 50%
  7. 1st of all, I like the post, good summary of where we are at, a nice POV about how you feel as well, the only thing I would like to add or counter is that 50-75% is a bit high and if it is exactly as you say, he is an absolute must grab or steal after the 2nd or 3rd round basically, I cannot imagine that Goodell is gonna back down or off his stance but then again he only suspended Rice for 2 games and I thought there was a chance for the NFL which makes the players wear pink the entire month of October, it gave them a real opportunity to step up and hammer down on this type of behavior, and we all saw how that turned out. Do we have a Goodell 2.0 version now?
  8. 3/4 oz, I think his days in Pittsburgh are numbered, they don't fool around with off field stuff. I will not be surprised if Pittsburgh trades for a RB and releases Bell. This isn't Mid March and nothing is happening and he's arrested in Podunk, it's 2 weeks before the season and this guy is not thinking very clearly. Middle of training camp is not a good time to be caught doing this. Pitt usually does the right thing,
  9. It all starts with the enticing bait. And wait till you want to try and cancel service down the road. Have you forgotten that last time you had to drop off the box and remote? Those places are worse than the DMV.
  10. This thread never dips past the 3rd or 4th thread down on page 1, insanity.
  11. Reggie Bush was the #14 RB in 2012 with roughly 1000/6, 35/300/2. but he's a good player. I don't know about good Don't know if you are aware but his last 3 seasons he totaled 1,381(7 Tds)/1,278(8 Tds)/1,512(7 TDs) and then sprinkle in about 130+ receptions including 54 last year in a pretty fast paced offense despite splitting duties. If J.Bell were to miss any time you likely have a top 5 dual threat over those weeks in a Detroit offense. Let's be honest about it. He's no Jamaal Charles or LeSean McCoy but not one drafts Reggie as an RB1, he's a perfect RB2 type or strong flex.
  12. I don't see why it has t be one or the other, the Rams are going to run the ball a lot so it seems like both are going to have their moments and then there is Benny Cunningham who is no slouch. Is the prize worth all the fuss? 3.9 ypc, one of the bottom 10 starting QBs in the NFL right now, very little pizzazz at WR for the moment, certainly not much with a track record. Murderous division with 3 games vs SF/Sea weeks 6, 7, 9, all bye weeks so you are gonna have to suck it up those weeks. Even if this becomes a solid position of return in 2014, can we really say with a straight face we see potential top 10 numbers here?
  13. Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams These 3 were trailblazers. All of them had successful stand up routines plus major movies and that was not a common thing. I can point to many "comedians" or SNL types but most of them were not stand up comedians or did not choose the night clubs for their talents. Very few comedians go from the stage to the big screen with the kind of success that these three were able to have at different points in their careers.
  14. Loved his movies but I guess I didn't "get" his standup routine. Never laughed once. It was like watching an 8-year-old kid who is spazzing out after eating a giant box of candy. "And your doing cocaine and you can't fall asleep and you're doing cocaine and you can't fall asleep and you wake up, and you're doing cocaine" To each their own but his Night at the Met stands on its own and is probably one of the best 5-10 stand up comedy sets of all time. Most mainstream comics study it plus Robin is one of the few who made it thru Juilliard so there's that as well. People will be hard pressed to find many if any other fellow comedians that have even half his resume. Very sad he decided to go this route but it reminds everyone just how serious mental health is and also depression.
  15. One of the best ever, underrated stand up once his movie career took off. Dead Poet's Society and Good Morning Vietnam always stood out to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2evBgJn1038 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Wab0-PZgwQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZJCDTKU_-E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzXPXdMr6bU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRD-6Kueu1A His Met performance from the 80s. R.I.P.
  16. That kid ran into oncoming cars. Is it possible Stewart tried to hit him? That video makes it look like the kid ran right at him, I wouldn't call it self defense but I don't see how anyone could convict him of anything. Civil suit totally different but real jail time, can't see it. I also doubt we see him in a race car any time soon.
  17. QB-Blaine Bad Gabbert is SO bad "HOW BAD IS HE?!" He's so bad he went to throw a bachelor party and it was intercepted by the police. When Coach Harbaugh was asked about the 2nd team offense he simply said "We were just Blaine Bad, that's all there is to it.
  18. Or as some would say, being slow enough to not outrun your blocks even when you try.I'm not trying to argue with you or anyone specifically but I think Fred Jackson was or is a guy who is one of the mot patient RBs at waiting for blocks to happen. Jackson is no speed demon but his patience allows him to usually find yards and gain positive yards plus he breaks a heckuva lot of tackles. Is there a reason you are bearish on Hyde? He is one Gore strain from seeing a rather sizable workload on a team with a ferocious OL and SB aspirations. You're a reasonable guy, what is it you're not liking here, you mentioned speed so I got that written down, what else? I haven't said I didn't like him. I said he looked decent.The only thing I don't really like is the preseason over reactions. Especially to a couple of runs that were perfectly blocked and didn't really show much of anything. Anyone bumping him off of this game is pushing an agenda IMO. All fair points and you're right, you never said you didn't like him so give me back those words, tyvm. Let's focus on the run that Kenny King highlighted for us earlier. You state you see great blocking and that's true. I also see a guy who has a nice 1st step or burst to break it to the outside and up the sidelines before 2 guys corral him. I don't think i have an agenda but Chris Johnson had the ball in space for NY last night if you have a chance to pull the game tape, lot of space and not much happened(pass play). Even if Hyde is simply capitalizing on the #1 OL in football...SO WHAT!? I'm just pointing out that you make an excellent point, his OL blows the snotbubbles out of the defense, fine by me. Again like your posts, understand the preseason hype getting out of control, can't disagree but I think there's real gold in them there hills. I'll even go a bit further. At some point in 2014, be it a Gore calf strain on a stretch run before the playoffs and they want to rest him, or perhaps nothing to do with any strains or down time, but I think Hyde will have a handful of big games that get folks attention. Trying to predict those games will be difficult at this moment but things are looking good so far for him. The situation is proving itself with the talent he is surrounded by. My gut says 2014: Handful of big games and sets up nice for a larger share in 2015.

  20. You hear the announcer in the NFL studio emphasize the blocking over anything spectacular that Hyde did. That said, I think it's possible the Niners' OL might supply him with a few more opportunities over the regular season Having a spectacular OL that gets the credit over his talent for the majority of his runs does not deter me in any way from wanting to draft him. I like situations over talent many times. Being patient and allowing the blocks to take shape is not a bad thing.
  21. Tough to tell. Not sure if everyone knows but you can order re-runs of all the preseason games on your computer, like $20 thru NFL.com and then you can watch the games and weigh in. Some think he looked slow, I thought he had big holes but he is not a super speed back to my knowledge, assume he will be a battering ram type. Emmitt Smith wasn't the fastest guy but he could sure follow blocks and break tackles when need be. Hyde is no Smith but just offering some perspective.
  22. What RB is going 1st overall now? I would assume no higher than about 4th or 5th depending on the league make up. I don't see Hyde as a big threat receiving, he could develop into 1,200 yd, 10 TD guy if he can get goal line work but there is some ceiling with him in PPR leagues IMO.
  23. A welcome face to the SP, good to see you. And Hyde's a beast just waiting for Gore to finally croak. And I love Gore but that OL is made to blow holes open and RBs to capitalize which will eventually help that anemic passing game become more prolific. My take.
