Enjoy today's games and feel free to throw down your thoughts on the action.
for the record doug thats not as bad as saying “i’m not just talking playoffs but first round bye and home field throught”
Shoulders are at about neck-level. Sexy Rexy must have asked him to aim for the achilles, or the subtalar joint, or maybe that sumptuous third metatarsal.
Either way, severe underthrows dovetail nicely with Sanchez’s skill set. But whatever you need to tell yourself about that play is OK with me, tough guy. Jets fans need all the consolation they can get.
For the record, G&W predicted a 31-point output by his NJ Jets against the Colts. He and his will get theirs next weekend…
its called back shoulder .. novice
You got me, dude. Now that Edwards bailed Sanchez out on that high, underthrown ball, the guy is obviously an ace quarterback. His obvious lack of arm strength and poor accuracy past 10 yards will never be an issue. Ever. How did I fail to see that?
You’re entitled to gloat, of course. Big moments are few and far between for Gang Green, and this is the biggest one since Vinny Testaverde broke the plane of the one yard line to clinch the division title in 󈧂. Congrats.
hey chibronx..i hope your not as pre mature with your wife..my man franchize looked pretty good in the 4th when it matters most
You know, OB27, I’ve thought along similar lines. I don’t want to have Walton fighting it with Beadles, but I think that having an experienced center next to Beadles (Who’s pulling like a champ and is making visible progress) might really help stabilize the center of the line.
I think that from what I’ve read, Khalil is a good player. He’d be, potentially, a decent mentor for Walton, and the team will have to handle this one carefully to keep JD on track - I’d hate to lose him, since I think that over time he’s going to be very good. However, the weakness in the middle - offense and defense, really - has to be stopped.
There are worse things than having a top-flight backup center for a year or two. There aren’t a lot of things worse than having major protection problems in the middle of the OL, whether Denver stays with Tebow or not .
I believe that they will stay with TT, but the idea is for the QB to run when he wants to or the play calls for it - not because he’s getting too much pressure up the pipe. Your idea has a lot of merit. By the way, remember that Eric Olsen is still in the system. Most OL players sit for a year, so I don’t necessarily hold that against him. He might be a decent backup at both slots, G and C. There could be some flexibility there. Time will tell if he’s sitting because there’s good talent in front of him or if he’s just not that talented.
Whoever was picking linemen the past two years is about 50/50 - Olsen (Seth) and Blake Schlueter weren’t good choices - Beadles is, and Walton might be, with some experience. Eric Olsen we don’t know anything about. The problem that Denver is facing is that OL rookies side by side in the middle, as we saw, is asking for trouble. By the time they’re both up to speed, have you done damage to the team? I think that this year, the answer was clearly yes. With another year’s experience? Gonna be interesting.
Welcome to the party kaisaki !
That cat is not to be trifled with <img alt="smile" height="19" src="http://www.singernet.com/images/smileys/smile.gif" style="border:0;" width="19">
Jets ! Jets ! Blech !
Happy playoff football everybody !
Can’t believe the Saints lost !
Folks, one game is a small sample and all. But Mark Sanchez looks bad in the precise way I expected him to look bad. And the same way he’s generally looked bad the 5-6 other times I’ve seen him play. I would be very, very angry if my team had given up more than half its draft to get that guy.
Green and White New York, you out there? Rub it in on Monday, Doug.
Oh not at all, Doc. I didn’t take it that way. I just wanted to make sure it was clear that I am not in love with Polumbus. I am definitely not an OL guy, so I appreciate your insight. I also realized I may have been a bit harsh in my comments on his release and subsequent trade. Just wanted to clarify. Sorry if I came across as defensive. Speaking of OL, I heard that Carolina center Ryan Khalil is an FA. Any interest in picking him up, giving ourselves a vet at C to help TT, and letting Walton battle it out with Beadles at LG? I realize i might be pulling the rug out from under these youngsters too quickly, but a vet at C could pay major dividends when making the protection calls etc next season and Khalil is one of the best.
OB27 -Hey, I understand. I was just commenting on the limits of his play options - you’re almost certainly right that they shopped him and there just wasn’t an interest at that point.
Denver just picked up Louis Leonard, who at 325 seems interesting until you see that he’s bounced from team to team and no one has found any interest in him in4 seasons, in which he was with CLE, CAR, NE and CAR again before Denver wanted him. Would they want him if they’d had any serious good luck with the DL (other than Bannan, Thomas who is a rotational guy and perhaps Vickerson, with none but Bannan really impressing). When your injuries go to a certain point, suddenly the player with no value suddenly has some.
Polumbo’s total lack of right lateral movement did drop his potential value. I can only assume that the Lions really needed a LT that week - lots of trades get done that way, as we’ve both seen. No worries at all - I didn’t think that my comment would incite any feelings, and I apologize if it seemed judgmental.
Hello, I’m new here.Just want to get this out, The cat,Quintana got it right. Seahawks won over Saints. what if they won the SB?
I meant specifically in playoff history Naggle (never won a road playoff game), not regular season, but yeah with their recent success and all you’d think the odds were they would’ve broken that string today. Not to be.
For the record underdog, NO was 13-3 the last two years on the road
But hey, he’s now got free time on his hands for an interview O&B! <img alt="wink" height="19" src="http://www.singernet.com/images/smileys/wink.gif" style="border:0;" width="19"> Yeah, defense wasn’t good today but he’s still a good coach.
I missed most of that game, bummer, seems like it was quite a frenzied affair. I had a feeling that Nawlins might lose it, everyone was giving Seattle hate for their record but NO is not a good road team and had no running backs.
Agreed on williams, but he did pretty well in DC.
Gregg Williams is losing a bit of luster for my taste. Maybe he’s an indoor DC extraordinaire <img alt="raspberry" height="19" src="http://www.singernet.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif" style="border:0;" width="19">
DonÂ´t hate Quintana because heÂ´s beautiful. Hate him because he picked the Seahawks!!!
I was being sarcastic about Polumbus’ value. I am not an o-line guy, but I never thought of him more than a backup. I do, however, still wonder about the release and subsequent trade. Not saying that we didn’t try to shop him and failed, but it doesn’t take a psychic to know that as TC progresses, injuries happen and the trade value of certain players goes up. Hopefully, we did our due dilligence and found no suitors for him. I shouldn’t have put the blame on the Broncos, but it’s irritating that Detroit was able to get a pick for a guy we released.
And, Polumbus is only valuable as a LT backup - he’s never been able to move laterally to his right, and it showed in Denver.
When the Broncos released him, the Seahawks weren’t desperate for an OT. Things changed when he got to Detroit.
That’s a road grater by the way.
Don’t forget Tyler “The Road Grader” Polumbus. Actually that situation was pretty lame. We cut him, Detroit picks him up, and then trades him to Seatle for like a 7th rounder. That’s on us for not knowing his potential value.
The line vs Seattle next wk, if they win, should 21 pts vs ATL. This is Seattle’s Super Bowl.
Everybody ready for the inevitable ‘chased-away-ex-Bronco-powers-Seahawks-to-victory’ thread? That won’t be annoying at all.
I also believe that Hasselbeck is much more mobile than Kyle, for what itÂ´s worth.
Hasslebeck also looks like he consistently gets through his progressions. I thought Orton often locked on to Lloyd and didn’t bother with his other options. That’s something that always bugged mean bit.
Anyone else think Bob Costas looks like a 13 year old Luke Skywalker look alike? Maybe it’s just me.
Nah, Hasslebeck doesn’t have a shaggy bowl cut and can grow thicker, less plague-victim-like facial hair. Oh, you meant quality of his play. I could see that, but Hasslebeck is a lot more mobile than our beloved Orton. That’s not a very dynamic scale for mobility, but Hasslebeck can make some plays with his legs. The rest of their game does look fairly similar though.
When Hasseleck is playing like this, it makes me wonder if that is what a seasoned Kyle Orton with a stable team around him would look like
Stokley looks bigger and faster. Since he and Eddie Royal are good buddies now, I wouldn’t be surprised if Stokes was pounding the iron with Eddie. I have no clue about this, but it sounded good. And Stokley has some pipes now.
Stokely still doing work I seeGot to love that guy
i keep expecting for the Kentucky Derby to start soon. Stokes having a big game! good for him.
Dont worry Naggle, we’ll take Moore early in the 2nd in 3 months. Earl would have been nice tho.
*Complete tangent thought alert*
Earl Thomas is starting to seriously make some plays. Even Mayock just said he has the greatest range of any rookie FS he has seen since (of course) Ed Reed.
I am sure most of you know this, but one of the popular Shanahan criticisms in the Draft Hindsight Game is the pick of Ashley Lelie in the 󈥢 Draft.As we all (unfortunately) remember, we went with Lelie at #19 while the Ravens took Ed Reed at #24.
When we traded our 1st rounder from last year so we could move up for Alphonso Smith, the stars aligned so that the Seahawks were able to take Earl Thomas.Naturally, Earl Thomas was supposed to be “ours”, even though you could have never predicted that a year beforehand. Remember, Draft Hindsight Game.
It is a bit cruel, just because the Broncos have such a great history with safeties and it has been obvious even in our current terrible defense era since 󈥥.The difference when we have had a healthy Lynch or Dawkins is READILY apparent.I can’t even imagine the difference an Earl Thomas would have made this year alone.
I suppose you could make a point about how you should value your own assets, but I am not even taking a jab at our FO (or ex-coach) for making the decision on Alphonso at the time.
Just a melancholic little observation. Such irony would be lost on everyone except Broncos fans I think <img alt="smile" height="19" src="http://www.singernet.com/images/smileys/smile.gif" style="border:0;" width="19">
New Orleans still has a Hurrican (the drink) hangover from 11 months ago. They very well could lose this game (17-14 NO right now)
Glad to see Stokes out there. He looks lively today.
Ugh. I was hoping the Saints would get knocked out today so we could interview their DC. Stupid Seahawks D looks pretty bad though.
