  1. John Middlekauff retweeted mike freeman ‏@mikefreemanNFL 2m A number of team sources across football believe the Vikings are wavering on playing Adrian Peterson this weekend. We'll see.
  2. Jason La Canfora retweeted Kevin Clark ‏@KevinClarkWSJ 6m NFL comment on Busch statement: "We understand. We are taking action and there will be much more to come." sounds ominous
  3. Boldin was a round 2 pick. I'm not sure anyone was underestimating him. Sure, most people still liked Bryant Johnson and Peter Warrick more but Boldin was a heralded prospect.
  4. Thanks for the rankings Zwk! What are your thoughts on Hopkins? He's a little lower on the wr list than I expected him to be.
  5. That's definitely the way I'm starting to feel too. All the reports from camp have been glowing. And the Texans can really only improve.
  6. A lot of people seem to question whether he has the athletic chops to be a #1 wr in the NFL but he seems to stack up pretty well to Dez Bryant in that regard (at least judging from the combine/pro day perspective). So where does the perspective that he is athletically limited coming from? The film?
  7. Do you mean Big Mike WIlliams. I've always thought of Tampa Mike as an athletic jump ball receiver.
  8. Yep. If add together what I have projected for Gronk, plus 6/16ths of what I have for Jordan Cameron, that puts my TE's season total only a few points behind Graham and at WR11. Too many people don't seem to recognize that head-to-head is a PPG game. And later PPG matters way more than earlier PPG. Oh well, just another misconception to exploit. Huh? You are in the playoffs (hopefully) later in the year. Each loss is magnified.
  9. How long did it take to hit the accept button? I agree. I would take that trade.
  10. sounds to me like he missed time and came back a primadonna. Munchak is too hard nosed as are his boys so they are letting him know that won't fly in TEN. I have little doubt they'll get that out of him, change that mindset. Biggest concern is not going 100% all the time. Some have him taking cheap shots from the D while others say finish the play it's not cheap at all. The Titans staff seems to view this as play 100% effort and we don't even have this discussion. The quotes on Wright are awesome this TC. I think already that Hunter lost any chance of starting over him. As always Mariani and Williams are hungry and doing everything right dying for a chance to play. Nate Washington is a predictable good effort, average player. Hunter has done nothing to find a niche in this O and he better. They went from about handing him the third WR spot to who is this primadonna? Again, I totally expect this gets straightened out quickly. Until then, enjoy(maybe wrong word here, bitter) the Pollard quotes and stories of defenders keying up on the primadonna WR. This is everything I wished would happen with Moss and Owens and the junk mindset so many WRs had way back then. Hunter may have tons of talent, but they will hit him hard til he changes. Not everyone has such a negative pov on hunter. http://www.musiccitymiracles.com/2013/8/2/4581012/titans-training-camp-mailbag-august-1-2013
  11. When a person makes a claim, it is up to others to fact check. That's just how these things work. www.google.com check laws of physics. also check what causes a concussion add 2+2 The sun will rise tomorrow, do you need an F'ing link for proof?? Relax dude. I know the laws of physics. I took a few years of college physics. There are way too many variables to make a definitive assertion based on elementary physics. Again this is just my opinion, you are welcome to your own. Im going to leave this alone from now on though so we don't sidetrack this thread too much.
  12. For the love of God, at what point will you acknowledge I said this is a SMALL part of the equation for me??? Not to mention it is FACTUALLy backed up by the wonderful reasearch of sir Isaac Newton a very, very long time ago. And of course I am simplifying it, duh Unless Austin would like to come over my house and let me slam a wall into him at different speeds and then scan his brains with high tech intruments to test his consussion and brain trauma tolerance, I PROBABLY can't give you specifics This is over for me already lol. I simply asked if you had a source for the statement you made. I thought it would be an interesting read. Instead of just saying no, you belittled my comment. So I explained myself a bit more. But the idea that physics would provide proof that a small player is more likely to sustain a concussion than a large one is a bit far fetched for me. Any theory that is borne out of physics equations would need to be proven in real life to be considered factual.
  13. That's fine. I was just curious. I personally don't really see size as a factor on the chances of sustaining a concussion but to each his own. Physics 101 man. It's a fact, not some theory. To each his own indeed. It does not mean he WILL have concussion issues. But if you put his exact head on a heavier frame that sustains the exact same hits, the concussion risk is less. Some people are more prone to concussions no matter what size they are. We do not know austins personal tolerance for concussions, but I do KNOW its higher than if he was a larger player. As I said, and since its unknown for his specific head, its a SMALL factor for me, but a factor none the less. I think you are simplifying this way too much. All the parts of the equation are moving. I'll hold off taking it as a given until I see some proof.
  14. Do you have any source for the bolded part?You mean other than physics? Really? Glad its so simple for you guys. Im guessing you are engineers then. Its not as easy as simply plugging this into you elementary force equation. But thanks for the contribution. All i did was ask if there was a source for the statement. There was really no reason to flame my comment.

  17. Do what now?Really now? The guy has the second most receptions in the history of the game and you are going to quibble with that statement. Harrison was a generational talent.
  18. It wasn't so much the 16 catch performance as much as it was how he played throughout September before blowing out his knee. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bending over backwards to get this guy., he's plan C for me if I can get a late round 1 pick and Lattimore + Michael don't make it. I do think he's the best WR pick after Tavon Austin in this class though, Keenan Allen would have been but tough getting past that draft day tumble. Relegating him to plan D, but would rather get him or Robert Woods (despite my lack of faith in his QB) in the pick 14-17 range than pick Hopkins or Patterson a half-full round earlier. I like Hopkins, just don't see the upside to justify a round 1 pick. Patterson has too much bust potential for my liking. Hunter hasn't shown much against the best competition(Florida, Georgia, LSU, Alabama, Oregon, South Carolina) and that's my biggest concern. Out of 10 games vs those teams he has exactly one 100 yard game and 1 TD. Total numbers 29 receptions 530 yards 1 TD, averaging 2.9 rec/53 yards/.1 TD. Furthermore, lets look more in depth at his stats. Vs Cupcakes(FCS/Non-BCS conferences) (Georgia St/Akron/Troy/Montana/UAB/Tenn Martin/Memphis) 34 receptions 628 yards 9 TD(7 games) Vs BCS Conference teams 72 receptions 1184 yards 9 TD(20 games) Per game averages: Vs Cupcakes 4.8 rec 89.7 yards 1.2 TD VS BCS teams 3.6 rec 59.2 yards .45 TD To compare, Kendall Wright(his new teammate) didn't have one single game his senior year at or below Hunter's averages vs BCS teams. Yeah but how much of this can be chalked up to the ineptitude of Tennessee's offense?

I like Hopkins, just don't see the upside to justify a round 1 pick. Patterson has too much bust potential for my liking. Where does Wheaton fit in this hodgepodge for you? Close to Woods? Yep, same tier. I think he could fill the Mike Wallace role well. A part of me actually prefers him to Woods simply because I do not trust Manuel at all. Really bummed when I saw Woods get drafted, expected to target him everywhere. Post draft I traded to a spot in which if he was there it's because he fell and could justify the value instead of staying put and just picking him as I was thinking pre draft. Makes sense. I wound up taking Wheaton over Woods in my rookie draft. I was sort of looking for wr with some upside. Neither really fit the bill but I guess Wheaton appears more explosive so I went with him.

  21. Why do you say never? He could be Marvin Harrison 2.0. Harrison was a once and a lifetime talent and about 3-4 inches taller than Hilton. I think Hilton is a nice player but feel his upside is capped. I guess I should take that with a grain of salt, considering your username. But Harrison probably wasn't even the best WR of his time (Owens, Moss) let alone a once in a lifetime talent. He was quick and fast, and had great hands and great chemistry with one of the best QB's of all time. What we've seen out of Luck and Hilton reminds me a lot of Manning and Harrison at the beginning. So I think it's *possible* they develop into something similar. Not necessarily one of the best duos of all time, but maybe to the point where Hilton is an every-week starter. Fine, maybe "once in a lifetime" was a bit over the top, although I don't think TO was a better receiver than Marvin. Setting that aside though (as Hilton is the topic of the post) I think you are setting yourself up for disappointment if you expect Hilton to have a career resembling Marvin's. I would be really curious to know what the record is for receptions by a 5'8 wr. Imo T.Y. He's not 5'8. He's 5'9 (and in some spots listed as 5'10, although I'd go with the 5'9 measurement). You are correct, he measured 5'9 at the combine. Regardless, I still think he's fighting an uphill battle at that size to have a career similar to Harrison's. That is just my 2 cents though. I could very well be wrong.

  24. Jets are sniffing around. I wonder if we might get a deal. We should know soon enough. A 4th rounder would have to get things done right? Chris Ivory - RB - SaintsRestricted free agent RB Chris Ivory visited the Jets on Friday. Ivory was tendered at the second-round level, so the Jets would have to surrender the No. 39 overall pick to sign him. It's hard to see rookie GM John Idzik giving up picks -- especially a high one -- when his squad is short on talent and low on picks. We suppose he could give up the selection if Darrelle Revis nets the Jets an early-round pick in the 2013 draft from the Bucs, but a trade would have to be worked out by the April 19 RFA deadline. Ivory would be an early-down bruiser to pair with speed back Mike Goodson. The 25-year-old has averaged 5.1 YPC on 256 career totes. He's far underutilized in New Orleans.Related: Jets Source: Howard Balzer on Twitter
