  1. I am totally calm but nice try with the textbook gaslight. “But like I said - it seems like the accusers would only be more credible if we knew that they were actually licensed massage professionals with clients who haven't been overtly sexual with them. Obscuring their names makes it more, not less likely that these are "working girls".” please explain the above statement but try to do it calmly
  2. There can be many reasons to Jane Doe and consider for one moment that saying, “...that I’m aware of..” is a statement of ignorance on the subject. Let’s wait and hear the reasons for their anonymity. I’m not walking around here feeling all woke but even if they end up being “working girls” does not in any way change if they could or could not have been sexually assaulted. This type of thinking gives credence to why they should remain anonymous, so the court of public opinion doesn’t get a chance to “hear the case” without it being presented properly before a judge, etc.
  3. This game had absolutely nothing to do with his hands.
  4. Has anyone ever said, “He’s as close as we are going to get to that guy.”? Stuart, I don’t think you are crazy at all. I get what you meant. You are saying here is as close as we have had to Calvin as the Lions have gotten since Calvin left Golladay put up some impressive rookie numbers when he played and had a direct effect on Marvin Jones’ numbers prior to his injury I think for this year there are too many mouths to feed so I expect at lost 800 yards and 8 tds, batting an injury to one of the other main receivers
  5. I don’t understand why this has to get so personal. Overrated? I hardly hear a peep from anyone saying he can still be great. He started his career averaging around a thousand yards a season his first two seasons. You can disregard the injuries, Tyrod, and a completely different offense with no prep if you want. He is still only 24, right? You better be throwing dirt on Cooper too, then. He is not going to be open like Tyreek Hill. He is open like early career Larry Fitzgerald or Mike Irvin. Throw the ball to him and he will get it I believe he has a 1200-1300 season in him. I would love to see him with Rodgers, Stafford, Garoppolo, or Cam.
  6. I can understand that but the team has shown they are confident that he will be ready for the season. Like I said, their actions appear to show they are investing in him as their running back. Injuries happen, yes, even ones that require microfracture surgery. We can only go off the snippets we get and it sounds like as far as microfracture surgeries go, this was a small repair. If there is a running back that I feel is escaping scrutiny it is Jay Ajayi. He is everybody's darling and yet supposedly has a degenerative knee issue and are we going to pretend like Miami didn't sign C.J. Anderson to a contract?
  7. Am I the only one buying on this guy? The team moved up into the first round to get him. They added nothing of significance in the draft to show a lack of confidence in him. They added a proven offensive coordinator who is bringing in a complementary running style with a fullback. In my opinion, last year was a collective crap show. Everybody knows the story about all the injuries on this team. This is a guy, contrary to what everyone (it does feel like nobody likes Melvin) says has the skill set for success. He has the work ethic and I think he will take a big step forward this year.
  8. Who says he is best suited for that type of role? Because of his size? How many times does size of the rb need to be discussed, ad nauseum? He is good between the tackles. If you wanted to address his fumbling or his lack of breakaway speed, then you have a good argument. Riddick is truly a one trick pony. He is a very poor runner between the tackles. I would say at this point, Ameer has a chance to improve like any second year running back and could make Riddick take more of a back up role on third downs, etc. because Abdullah offers more versatility if he improves. I wouldn't Abdullah very high but I would be willing to take a chance on the guy. He can improve..
  9. Dez Bryant and Calvin Johnson and Antonio brown all showed this past season that they were not "quarterback proof" so my question would be "what skill does josh Gordon have that none of these three do?"Calvin plus Caldwell makes Calvin not QB proof anymore. Calvin was QB proof as they come. Jon Kitna, J.T. O'Sullivan, Culpepper, Orlovsky, Stanton. Roddy White was another one. Vick, Schaub, Harrington, Redman, Leftwich, Ryan. Gordon definitely has the skillset to be QB proof but I don't like long layoffs, especially in young players. I would be leaning 1100 and 7 coming back healthy.
  10. If they are all healthy, flip a coin every week. Doesn't really matter who anyone has ranked ahead of the other when it comes to those 3.WHY ARE YOU ATTACKING HIM!?!?I don't know if semantics is the right word but I get his point. The conversation can't move forward because you are so intent on holding him to this red zone targets statement. I haven't pored over his posts but I got the gist of it. Chaka more or less was saying take heed because in the Shanny offense, for whatever reason, the usage doesn't translate to touchdowns. It was something that caught my attention and it kind of played out that way. Do you want to keep revisiting the targets point or do you want to see if there is maybe a reason for the number one wide receiver in this offense to not be getting as many touchdowns? We can talk about how that is not the case but let's not keep stalling any thoughtful conversation.
  11. That one catch put him on the radar fast but he is so much more than that one catch. What he has done in his first two seasons cannot be chalked up as one trick pony status. If Jerry Rice is the benchmark to discuss if a guy is great then we just can't talk about anybody. Not only was Rice great but his situation from QB, to offensive scheme, to an unusual work ethic that wasn't the norm at the time can just not be repeated in today's NFL. Shoot, punters work out like the RBs and WRs of the past. Not to mention, tackles are so violent now there is just no way for players to have that kind of longevity.
  12. Translation: I own Ware but not West. This is a messy timeshare. Kudos to those who saw it coming.
  13. It's a real shame. This guy has deceptive speed, perfect for running good routes and he has Antonio Gates like rebounding and catch range. Something is lacking. Like somebody mentioned, maybe he is just soft. With the schedule he has and the targets he gets, very disappointing.
  14. Okay, people are obviously emotionally attached. So, let's try to think about this logically. Reid tends to stick with one back. Charcandrick was starting ahead of Ware and is more versatile in the passing game, something, I thought that was sorely missing from this game. This offense was built around Jamaal Charles and the RB that most closely resembles that skill set is West. I think people get invested because they nabbed Ware or West off of waivers and just get too attached to the situation. Yes, it is possible that Ware could keep the job but, given Reid's RB history, which is vast. That is one of the more unlikely choices, barring West coming back full health.
  15. Jonathan Stewart owner over here wondering what you could possibly be complaint about?
