Christine Michael Volume 3: Inevitable Greatness Soon Achieved

Recommended Posts

:lmao:

This thread continues to be comedy gold.

Between both threads, we've got 160 pages - Possibly my favorite useless player of all time. I own him in both leagues and would welcome him being cut or demoted to practice squad, at least I would then be able to free up the roster spot, or would I?

He's not the same as any other handcuff. He plays behind my boy McFragile and has the Dallas OL, Dez and in two weeks from now, Romo.

All that said he does seem a headcase, so he could easily blow any opportunity that emerges. He seems to have already done so repeatedly when doors have opened.

All joking aside, CM gets way more #### than he deserves.

This guy has stayed in the NFL, battled through ball cancer, and STILL has a shot to get a starting gig. I'd say that's pretty impressive already.

If you guys actually watched the game before criticizing you would've seen how much c-mike looks better than mcfadden. on his 9 yard run he looked like a freak of nature. mcfadden mustered up 60 yards on 20 carries (3.2 ypc), even without injury to mcfadden they'll be splitting carries within 3 weeks. mcfadden will still probably get 90% of the passing down looks.

I almost feel like I'm still holding this guy in dynasty just to have an excuse to keep reading this shtick

I know who's second account this is!!

But if you take away his top two carries he didn't even get a 9 yard run. Furthermore, do you get extra points for looking like "a freak of nature" during a 9 yard run, or is it still only 0.90 points?

Honestly, you can prove anything by cherry picking your runs.

I could say "on his -1 yard run where he ran into the back of his own lineman he looked like an amateur."

McFadden has a muscle pull???

Here's what happens when you search for McFadden on Twitter:

@tarmineta3: DarrenMcFadden_: Breaking news! Unconfirmed! I just heard a loud bang nearby. in what appears to be a blast of wind from my neighbour's ###.

at this point he's as valuable as any other handcuff in the league. maybe give him a slight bump for the o-line he would run behind.

I don't see c-mike any different from starks, tevin coleman, buck allen, thomas rawls, karlos williams, jonas gray, jerick mckinnon, and probably a few others. All are players who need an injury to be the starter. Some of which have actually shown they can be productive in full-time roles in meaningful games - something c-mike can't say.

I'd much rather have Starks.

why?

BC he has proven he could do it and plays in a great offense. If the Cowboys keep losing, maybe they even just shelf Romo for the year, who knows? If they're out of contention by week 14, what do they have to gain by playing him?

I honestly think Starks looks 100x better than Lacy this season too.

If we are ranking them based on the value they would have if the guy in front of them were injured, I'd take Starks as well. As I inferred in my initial post, C-mike hasn't proven he can be productive as a lead back, Starks has.

But if we're ranking them based on their current value, I don't think one differentiates himself from the other. Without an injury, they're both nothing more than handcuffs. I think the chances of Mcfadden getting injured are much greater than Lacy, so I'm not sure why you would much rather have Starks.

I'd disagree. Lacy has been hurt in every one of his nfl seasons (ankle this season I believe) and coming into the draft the biggest knock on him was his toe and his durability. He has had two concussions I think already
Lacy played 15 games his rookie year, 16 last year, and all 7 so far this year. He's less durable than McFadden, got it.

But you're saying you'd rather have a backup to an injury prone RB on a team with a poor offense instead of a backup RB in one of the most dynamic offenses in the league? And the starters biggest knock on him coming out of college was his durability?

So I take it if you had Starks and I offered you Kendall Gaskins or Pierre Thomas for him you'd take that trade?

Green Bay is not been one of the most dynamic offenses this year though.

And with Romo and Dez coming back, coupled with Dallas strong offensive line, I'd rather have Michael over Starks. Plus Starks recenty got banged up.

Top 10 in offensive points per game :shrug:

The Patriots have the most dynamic offense.

"One of the most" is a contradiction in terms.

cool story bro. all i was saying was if you actually watch real football you'd see he's crazy fast and strong, far superior to mcfadden. just because i talk about mcfadden's YPC doesn't mean i'm talking fantasy here, they keep stats in real football too you know

His athleticism has never been a question in 160 pages. You can even be Christine Michael and the A-gap will still be called the A-gap and they won't reverse the endzones for you. The guy isn't trusted, and what makes the most sense through all of this is he doesn't know the plays. Id sure hope he can run for 9 yards on one of the 4 plays he has learned to memorize over the last 8 weeks.

And your cool story bro isn't keeping it excellent nor is it used in the right context. Plz see the moderator post in the previous page. Be excellent!

Memorizing plays isn't the problem. Passing plays where he must know blocking assignments or when to chip before going on x route things like that are the hard stuff for a running back to have to learn playwise, but he hasn't earned the role of the passing back down yet so we're basically judging him as a pure runner right now because that's mainly been his role so far. The holes seldom open up as expected on run plays and the action all happens so fast, I'm sure he knows if he has to run right, wide right, left, or wide left. Leveon Bell is the best back in the league because he's got great acceleration (despite only a 4.6 40), is shifty, a great route runner, and can improvise on the play better than everyone else and get as much as he can from the defense. Michael has rtardedly good acceleration, a better 40, as shifty if not shiftier than Bell (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3V3JiOhFOxA), he's strong, and his career touches total less than 3 games worth so you can't judge how well he can read blocks and his vision in the NFL level yet. With those touches he's had a nice YPC by the way. What he's lacked is opportunity and now he's about to get comparably LOTS.

The only way I see him not taking McFadden's job is if he's literally too fast and doesn't slow down let the blocks develop. That is what you want to work with in an NFL RB.

Ok, so to summarize:

Michael can't pass protect

Michael is better than Leveon Bell

Michael isn't taking McFaddens job away because he (Michael) is too fast

Got it

I got off the train.

Decided better to pickup Coleman to handcuff Freeman.

Michael won't have value unless MCfadden goes down. And even if he does I don't see them trusting him enough to be an everydown back especially when ROmo is back

They will sooner sign Rice or Ball who can pass protect as the team runs through ROmo

Trying to get off this train.

Just offered Michael and K.Williams to the McFadden/McCoy owner for Jeremy Hill (redraft, non-ppr). If he declines, which he should, gonna try to get Martavis for Michael.

Offered Michael to the former Randle owner for S.Watkins.

The plan is to keep throwing #### up against the wall and see if anything sticks.

Cowboys off coord Scott Linehan yelling at RB Christine Michael to show some tempo & quit walking around. Now has pulled him aside for chat.

11:30 AM - 5 Nov 2015

This speaks to what many have speculated as being the biggest obstacle to Michael getting real playing time. Professionalism.

I remember playing pick up basketball in my parent's neighborhood park when I was about 19 or 20. One of the guys playing was a former 2nd round draft pick at WR who didnt last very long in the league. In between games people were talking to him and he was saying things like, "they want you to kiss their ### in the NFL....they want you to be the first one there and the last to leave....they want you to blah blah blah....." and that's why I didnt make it b/c I wasnt willing to kiss anybody's ###."

All I could think was "so they want you to be a professional???" A LOT of guys have talent and physical ability but very few guys combine those with work ethic, attention to detail, commitment and professionalism.

Watching Michael's demeanor and bizarre behavior between plays he just seems like a guy that lacks professionalism and doesnt get it. And if that's the case, it doesnt matter how much talent you have. And I think his talent has been largely overstated anyway.

Maybe it still works out for him and he certainly has an opportunity now but he's hasnt seized his limited opportunities to this point and anecdotes like the quote above have me thinking its likely he never will.

Doesnt get it and not a true professional.

x2...I have other very very speculative guys I'd like to add...I think it's time to move on. I agree that there's no way he's an every-down back, even if McFadden gets hurt. This team needs Romo to come back and STAY back more than they need an athletic freak at RB.

Let's guess Michael said he was loping around because he was tight. I'm guessing coach told to go take a break and stop wasting everyone's time.
