  1. He's a stop-gap player that excels against third string rookies. Definitely a between the gaps plugger that doesn't fumble IIRC. You sign him to fill in for someone who's injured or to grind out the clock late in the game.
  2. Agreed. The Luigi 'stache is kinda dumb as well but not as stupid looking as that short 'stache he was rocking back in 2006. I kinda want to see us run the ball a bit more this week or work our TE's out a bit more. We pretty much know where we stand at WR, but if MLF's offense is primarily a run-to-set-up-the-pass offense we need to evaluate our run-blocking game a bit more. I'm looking at Oakland's DL and they've got some guys who have significantly more experience at their position compared to the majority of our OL.

    Well, here's your challenge: I work as a director/coordinator at a branch of a large company with 15 people directly below me. Each week, my ensemble performs a different task in which we need multiple staff meetings to coordinate and align properly. These tasks are usually on a grand rotation that occurs over the course of a year so when we switch from one task to another, we need a bit of a refresher just so we can be efficient. My predecessor was a massive Richard who didn't have things like "thank you" and "good job" and "I think we could do this a bit better, let's try this" or "that's a good start" in his vocabulary and then put on a bunch of chintzy restrictions and requirements that royally PO'ed everyone involved. Rumor has it the company promised him a bunch of things(in particular a newer piece of equipment we need) in which they never followed through on or at least followed through on this person's particular timeline, which was unrealistic to begin. So in his frustration, he gave up on the situation, got recruited to another location within the company by someone higher up the food chain, and then filed his 60 days with us but failed to find coverage until due time. He sabotaged the piece of equipment we need replaced and nearly destroyed the relationship we had with the maintenance team for it. So I had to come in on my white horse and clean up the mess. Problem is that the person who on-boarded me on just left and the interim at their level and I are now trying to put out the fires that person lit given that there's been bad blood between our branch and the regional offices for quite sometime and this person somehow made things worse. It's a Schidtshow right now. I'm thinking about finding a different location in the company in which to conduct my business. Hot take: Janis > Davis

    He was a very angry man.

    KGB...

    I think he was talking about wind energy...

    It's not like he had to set the world on fire to create a positive improvement. Hell, I liken it to my job right now where I replaced someone who quit in the most unprofessional way possible without getting arrested and I feel like I'm underachieving...
  9. The offseason DL thread

    I think that's why he's the last man in.
  10. Jets sign former 1st round LB Stephone Anthony

    Field vision/diagnosis was the one big knock on him and those chickens came home to roost almost immediately. He was an ascending player up to the draft due to his athleticism and pedigree and like so many of those Clemson defenders, his skills didn't translate to the pro-level. On the other hand, the Saints pulled the plug on him quite early thus not allowing enough time and opportunity to recover.
  11. The offseason DL thread

    I'd like to be hopeful, but I doubt that scenario is realistic at this time. We'll probably keep him as the last man on the team, being a healthy scratch.

    Yup. They were concerned about his injury and knew that they had better non-RS WR's on the roster given that both Cobb and Allison could return kicks if necessary. What baffles me is how they didn't see how Davis was expendable at that moment at a time in which they could've invested a draft pick or signed a FA to specifically handle RS duties.

    I hope it works out this way as well. Kumerow and Lazard have an ability that's far greater than that of Davis: AVAILability...
  14. Random Packer News & Notes

    I'll agree with you on A, but don't be surprised if B is a reality. The one ability Martinez has that Smith doesn't is AVAILability. On an annually beat up defense, Martinez has missed very little time and doesn't have the major injury that Smith once had. I do think there will be an immense overhaul and Martinez will be the investment at the position with other players flanking him. I could also see a bigger Safety drafted for a hybrid role to try to find the player we had hoped Burks could be.
