Title: 2012 NFL Thread
Post by: Irongrip400 on September 09, 2012, 06:22:24 PM
Watching the Denver game and these guys are clueless. Much like the college game speeds up for the college players, so to does it speed up for these div II refs. Goodel should be ashamed, and his saying that he thinks they're doing great, is a bullshit negotiating tactic and I hope he gets smacked down again jus like he did in the bounty gate case.

They were atrocious today in every game I watched.  Completely unacceptable.

Post by: UPINTHEMGUTS on September 10, 2012, 07:56:45 AM
The referees will be way better by game 3 or 4. They are simply adjusting to the speed of the game. Most of the ref's worked division 2 or 3 college games to begin with.

Upinthemguts, Shizz, I'm looking in ya'lls direction.  Who you got?  I have to admit, I'm a little worried, and loser is 1-2 which is a bad place to be in the AFC.  Brady always seems to pull it out against the Ravens, and without Suggs, it will be tough.  That said, I say 31-27 Ravens in a nail biter.  Webb has a pick six, Joe will look clueless at times, and Brady will whine for at least 3 roughing the passer calls, of which 2 he will get.

Tough game to call. But I do know one thing...Flacco better get his shit together for this game. He looked LOST in the fourth quarter against the Eagles. That loss sickened me because the Ravens had no business losing that game. Just a terrible loss. That thing that drives me most crazy about Flacco is that he holds on to the ball too long at times. It's amazing that he's never missed a game in his career with all the hits he takes.

I can't imagine the Ravens starting 1-2 anymore than I can fathom the Patriots starting 1-2. That being said...FUCK the Patriots. I have the Ravens winning 21-16.

No shit, Cam's playcalling is terrible.  Rice is averaging 7 YPC and you throw on 3 and 2, 4 and 2?  WTF, Harbaugh is a winning mofo, but will get his ass run out of town for some stupid shit like that.  I remember though, they were 1-2 I believe Flacco's first year and went 11-5, so it's possible to climb out of that hole.  I just hope the team doesn't divide like in the Boller days.  I think it could be worse this time because they have never had a team this good or with this much potential.  I thought that when they got McNair they would go to the Superbowl, but he was past his prime and didn't really do shit, especially in the playoffs against Indy.  It sucks, that pretty much every year they get bumped from the PO, it is by the Superbowl winner, or the AFC champ.  I think they would've destroyed the Bears, and Giants, but not sure about AZ, Indy or GB.

Yeah...Lucky to pull off that win on the road...Those turnovers by the Chiefs saved the Ravens, especially that fumble that Reed recovered in the endzone.

On to Dallas at home and then a megamatchup against the Texans the week after.

They beat the Giants.  They did not own them.   That game showed nothing in terms of who would win if they met up in the SB.   But, if they did, it would be pretty cool to see who could get 3 rings first out of Eli / Ben.

Kapernick still has to make a believer out of me.  I saw him play many times while he was at Nevada.  He was a freak.  But I always thought we was an average passer, despite the high completion percentage.  The numbers were partly the result of the pistol offense and his freakish athletic ability IMO. 

That said, what he did against the Bears was pretty darn impressive.  I think Harbaugh should start him against NO.  Kinda have to after his performance.

Very impressed.  Smith didn't do anything to lose his job and was playing extremely well, but I think Harbaugh has to start Kaepernick again.  He's doing everything Smith was doing, plus he can throw the ball down the field and is a dual threat.  That's the missing link that could push the Niners past the NFC title game. 

What do you think?

I kind of think the same thing.  Kaep was hitting guys in stride and making big 3rd and long completions.  While alex doesn't deserve to lose his starting job, the point is to win football games.  If he stays with Alex, then alex knows he has a very small margin for error and could be replaced in game sooner than ordinarily warranted.  In any event what ever Harbaugh decides he does have the initial trust and confidence of his players.

My gut tells me he will announce alex as the stater tomorrow.  but who knows.  either way i think we will be fine.

Guarantee Kaep remains the starter for the rest of the season. The kid just has that 'it' factor and the right intangibles to win. It's just too bad Smith lost the job due to injury and not because of performance.

Yeah I think he can't go wrong with either one.  Jerry Rice was on ESPN this morning sort of waffling.  Said Smith should be the starter, but that as a WR he'd rather have Kaepernick throwing him the ball.

He pretty does everything well.  He throws a great deep ball.  He's accurate under 20 yards.  He has great speed.  He's a very difficult match up.  Like Vick without all the turnovers.   

He could definitely go through a sophomore slump, although I'm not sure I'd compare him to Cam.  Is Cam really doing much worse than last season?

Sounds like the right decision. 

One thing we haven't seen yet is him break one in the regular season.  He's a threat to go the distance any time he gets outside the pocket.  I saw him break a 60 or 70 yard run at Aloha Stadium and I swear he must have only taken ten strides to get there.  He sort of runs like Eric Dickerson.

Title: Re: 2012 NFL Thread
Post by: UPINTHEMGUTS on December 03, 2012, 12:38:30 PM
Sexy?

It's just something he's been doing as a tradition for the last 15 years. There's nothing iconic about it or anything. It's just something he does to get the crowd fired up and believe me...it works. You have to see it in person to believe it, it's different than watching it on TV.

Ray Lewis will go down as an NFL legend. Some people disagree with me on this but he's NOT sacrificing the success of the defense by still being a 3 down player. He can still cover tight ends effectively. He still takes great angles to the ball carrier. He does get swallowed up a lot easier by blockers on inside runs, I will agree with that. But his football IQ is on another level than most. That's the reason he's played so long: his awareness on the field and his dedication to working hard while preparing to play.

The defense is better with him than without him, end of story.

Tough day for Kaepernick.  I think his biggest mistake was not running about of bounds late in the fourth.  That could have been the difference in the game.  On the other hand, given all the heat the Rams brought all game long, I thought he did a decent job.  His 50 yard run shows how dangerous he can be on the ground.

Will be interesting to see what Harbaugh does for this Sunday.

We shall see.  Smith was very impressive before he got hurt.  But I do think he should start Kaepernick again this week. 

You should check out Kaepernick's college stats.  Crazy.  Cannot remember exactly off the top of my head, but I think he was passing for over 3,000 and running for over a 1,000 in a season.

It isn't the players who inflate the numbers, though - it's the guys in the sports information department with or without prompting from the coaching staff.

Absolutely a dumb decision by NC State.  They lost a great player.  Drafted in the third round.  Now starting in the NFL.  That could have been a big recruiting tool.

I agree SI directors are partly responsible for inflating numbers, but the players participate too.  They don't do anything to correct incorrect height and 40 times from being listed, reported, etc.

I'd rather the Ravens rest their starters against the Bengals and be happy with 10 wins. That way the Colts would be their home opponent in round one. Don't want to play the Bengals in the post season. They are looking pretty scary on defense, lately.

But ultimately, the Ravens are going to go full speed to try to keep momentum after the Giants win. Smart way to go, I just hope we don't get any more injuries.

The game was better in the 80s and early 90s, especially before FA and the salary cap had such big impacts.  Better teams.  More entertaining.  Better rivalries.

if their defence did their job and not let ATL get those 2 HUGE plays on that last drive they would have won.

I'm literally trying to fast foward to Sunday. I cannot wait to watch this battle. They have a chance to get revenge from last year. You can't draw it up any better.


RAVENS NATION!!!

im hoping for a Ravens San Fran to win. Real Football.... I hate the Ravens. But I respect the hell out of them. I really want Ray to go out on top. I swear i almost Cried after that last game.

He definitely deserves to go out on top. I really wish he would come back for an 18th season but after thinking about it.....it feel like his timing is good....especially considering the position his team is in.

The Ravens are playing with a lot of inspiration. They refused to let Denver put them away several times in that game. They just wanted it more than the Broncos did. The Ravens are so battle tested. They truly feel that they will win this game against the Patriots.

some "steeler fan" you are rooting for their number 1 rival and the team that could tie their record of 6 super bowls ::)

Im a football fan before anything. I love great football and respect the hell out of Ray. The best 4-3 linebacker ever. Im a linebacker, i was captian of my high school football team, college football team and minor league team. As a linebacker and a leader, if you dont respect and love the way Ray Lewis approaches the game of football.. you might as well be a woman who likes football teams based on uniforms. Im not a child. Kids HATE rival teams. With me. I dont HATE any team. As a fan of the sport of football, its almost gay if you dont have a dog in the race and cant find respect for Ray lewis.

kids choose their favorite team based on who traditionally wins ie the steelers ::)

so you don't respect tom brady?  tony gonzalez?  i'd say they have more of an argument being the best all time at their position than ray does

I have a buddy who is a die hard Steeler fan, we actually went to a Ravens Steelers game at Heinz. Anyway, he is rooting for the "rat birds" as he says they play like the Steelers and wants the Lombardi to go to the AFC North. I don't share that sentiment, but it's sports, and you root for who you root for. I don't like Tom Brady, and will root against him no matter what. He's had his time.

i will root for the ravens against the 49ers or cowboys in a super bowl, nobody else

there is no reason for somebody to root against brady other than jealousy, he already has a resume more impressive than any other qb so what else are you rooting against?

I look forward to this game and another ring.

Fuck the Pats D. It sucked and always has. I'm not convinced that the 49er DB's will have an answer for Torrey Smith and Boldin. Boldin is straight up killing it in the playoffs right now and I predict he will win Superbowl MVP. He is playing with so much determination and urgency to win the big one.

Kaepernick is so dangerous in the read-option offense. Plus, he'll be playing on turf which makes him very fast on that surface. No worried about Gore killing us, to be honest.

Ravens win 27-24.

I think if SF has a chance they must have Smith and Smith Rushing the Passer like a mofo.

The Patriots didn't lose because Talib wasn't out there...you lost because you wern't PHYSICAL enough to play with the Ravens. The game was over the second the Ravens went up 7-3.

The Patriots D has sucked all season so one guy going down wasn't going to make the difference in that game.

The Ravens O-line is playing lights out right now. I think Flacco has only been brought down like 3 times in the playoffs. When they bumped Oher to RT and Mckinnie to LT before the playoffs...I was giddy because I knew that was their best O-line combo. Plus...Mckinnie is fresh from not playing all season. Flacco has all day to throw back there. 8 TD passes with no INT's says it all.

If the 49er's D cant get to Flacco...its going to be a long day for the 49er's.....The Ravens O is playing great right now.

He needs to put the crack pipe down.  Jerry Rice is the GOAT.  He worked harder, he played harder, he won rings, he put up numbers better than any WR in NFL history.

He never had a substance abuse problem.  He never had alligator arms.  He never quit ("I play when I want to play").  Always left it all on the field. 

I really like how Moss has contributed to the Niners this year.  Has been a class act on and off the field.  But better than Rice?  No.

"Cash money, homie!"

Moss' season in 2007 was the greatest season of all time for a WR, in my opinion. I never understood why the Patriots wanted to get rid of him while he was still playing well. I understand he acts selfish sometimes but he and Brady had such a rhythm.

Not quite Earl.  He was a five star recruit out of high school.  Was one of the top five ranked recruits in the country.  

And what did he do before all the drama?

Senior season (2012)Teo announced on December 11, 2011 that he would return to Notre Dame for his senior season. Te'o entered his final season as one of 10 players in Notre Dame history to record over 300 career tackles and started the season eighth on the career tackles list for the Fighting Irish.[28] During the season, Teo was the leading tackler and leader in interceptions for a 12-0 Notre Dame team which had the second-ranked scoring defense (10.33 points per game). He had 103 tackles in the regular season (52 solo, 51 assisted, 8.58 per game), including 5.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks (one for 13 yards of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones.[19] Teo also led the team, as well as all FBS linebackers in the nation, in interceptions. Teos 7 interceptions during the 2012 season are the most by any FBS linebacker since 2001.[29] He ranks third in the nation at 0.58 interceptions per game, and overall only Fresno State safety has more, with 8 interceptions this season.[19] His season-high per game was 2 interceptions for 28 yards against Michigan. All statistics have been taken from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Athletics website.[30]

In the 2012 season, Notre Dame ranked second in the nation in scoring defense (10.33 points per game) and ranks in the top 19 nationally in four other defensive categories: fifth in rushing defense (92.42 yards per game), sixth in total defense (287.25 yards per game), 12th in pass efficiency defense (105.58) and 19th in sacks (2.75 per game). Te'o's 8.58 tackles per game is three and a half more per game than the squad's next-most prolific tackler, Zeke Motta (5.09 per game).[19]

Te'o is the most decorated defensive player in college football history. He won the 2012 Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year Lott Trophy, as well as the Maxwell Award, the Chuck Bednarik Award, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Butkus Award, the Lombardi Award, and the Walter Camp Award. In addition, he was named a national scholar-athlete by the National Football Foundation.[31] One of three finalists for the Heisman Trophy, Te'o eventually finished second in the voting to Texas A&M Quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Kaepernick on a fast surface scares me. The Ravens had trouble with the read option offense when they played the Redskins and RG3. Its so tough to defend that when you have a QB that can run like Colin.

E

You're wrong.  The reason people know who he is in large part is because he's the most decorated defensive player in college football history.  Maybe he's not that good in your eyes (I use the eye test too), but the people voting for the Heisman (second place), Maxwell Award, Butkus Award, Lombardi Award, Walter Camp Award, etc., etc. disagree with you. 

He won those awards because he produced on the field, including having more INTs than any linebacker in Division I since 2001.  That kid is a beast.   

And I only mentioned the fact he was a top five recruit coming out of high school to help you understand why people knew who he was before all this fake girlfriend stuff.  He could have gone to any school in the country.

"Cash money, homie!"

Moss' season in 2007 was the greatest season of all time for a WR, in my opinion. I never understood why the Patriots wanted to get rid of him while he was still playing well. I understand he acts selfish sometimes but he and Brady had such a rhythm.
I think it was more about the money.  He would have wanted way too much.  The Patriots aren't about giving Afraud contracts. (I know they aren't guaranteed) Except the higher the total amount, the higher the guaranteed  :-X

Earl here is what you said:


You're wrong.  The reason people know who he is in large part is because he's the most decorated defensive player in college football history.  Maybe he's not that good in your eyes (I use the eye test too), but the people voting for the Heisman (second place), Maxwell Award, Butkus Award, Lombardi Award, Walter Camp Award, etc., etc. disagree with you. 

He won those awards because he produced on the field, including having more INTs than any linebacker in Division I since 2001.  That kid is a beast.   

And I only mentioned the fact he was a top five recruit coming out of high school to help you understand why people knew who he was before all this fake girlfriend stuff.  He could have gone to any school in the country.   

He's also going to be a first round pick. 

do i really need to name all the losers that were given those awards in college?  i don't have all day so you can look them up yourself

he is only the "most decorated" because he plays at the most famous football school that was ranked number 1 in the country and he was their biggest name

if you truly believe he deserved all those awards you don't watch college football or you just watch the "name" schools like notre dame where all of their games are nationally televised

how many tackles did he have?  look that number up and tell me, we all know inside linebackers are supposed to have a lot of tackles

jadeveon clowney was the best defensive player in college football, but his team wasn't ranked high enough nor does south carolina have the publicity of notre dame

again i don't have all day to name all the first round busts, i will quit watching the steelers if they draft that clown in the first

Two issues.  The first is your claim that  the "only reason anybody knows who he is" is because of the fake girlfriend and his grandmother dying.  I just showed you how that's completely untrue.  That's why I referenced his awards, production, high school stuff, etc.  He has been one of the most talked about college football athletes since high school. 

The second is your claim that he isn't very good.  I'm not going to argue with that.  People can have different opinions about what they see.  If you've watched him play and think he's not very good, that's fine.  I happen to disagree.  So does pretty much everyone else who has watched him play.  But everyone is entitled to their opinion. 

I gave you his college stats already.  You obviously didn't read them if you're asking me how many tackles he had. 

Regarding whether he will be a good pro, that remains to be seen.  There are plenty of first round busts every year.  He could very well be one of them.  I doubt it, and I think he'll have a long career, but he could be a bust. 

He's a great kid.  I'll be rooting for him wherever he lands.

Dude is a beast on the field.. had a lot of production. Not really a hitter but he does everything you want an ILB to do. He reads well, great instincts, very discipline when dropping in to coverage. Gets off of blocks well and makes sure tackles. Did he have a bad game vs Alabama...yes... but ive seen Ray Lewis stink it up before... just not that much. No one knows who will and wont be busts.

Its a crap shoot. But ill tell you, i think he has the work ethic and instincts to be a player.

he did not have all this national attention until the death of his grandma and "girlfriend", he made about 12 tackels against michigan the same day and espn jumped all over it

high school accolades mean shit, there's about 30 "5 star" players per year

the college awards also mean shit, they are given to high profile players on high profile teams, how many college awards did kaepernick win while putting up huge numbers?  NONE because he played at nevada

i don't care about his interceptions, an inside linebaclers job is to make tackles

if you watched the alabama game and still think he's a great player, that's your problem

he's a weird kid and the most overrated college player i've ever seen, i don't want him on my team

Anquan Boldin traded to 49ers
Updated: March 11, 2013
ESPN.com

The Baltimore Ravens agreed to trade receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers, the team they beat last month in the Super Bowl, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The Ravens have made all the right moves recently -- until Monday's trade of Anquan Boldin to the 49ers, Jamison Hensley writes. Blog

The Ravens will receive a sixth-round draft choice in return, the sources said.

Boldin, who is in Africa on a mission, needs to pass a physical before the trade with San Francisco becomes complete.

The trade agreement was earlier reported by the Baltimore Sun.

Ravens receiver Torrey Smith took news of the trade hard, venting through his Twitter account.

"This business is BS at times," he wrote.

While Smith was upset, Boldin's potential new quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, was excited by the trade when he spoke with ESPN.

"If it's true, it's a great trade," Kaepernick told ESPN. "We're happy to have him. Having a playmaker like that at receiver is something you always want. It's another weapon for our offense and our team."

Kaepernick added that he thought the Niners were getting Boldin at a great value.

"He's a great player," Kaepernick said. "I don't think you're going to find anybody in the sixth round to come in and play better than what he's doing right now."

The Ravens had reportedly asked Boldin to take a pay cut to help the team with its salary-cap situation. Boldin is scheduled to earn $6 million in the coming season. He carries a $7.531 million salary-cap figure.

Boldin told USA Today on Saturday that he was unwilling to slash his salary in order to stay with the team, citing "principles."

"At no point, no matter how well I played, would I come back to the table and say, 'I need more money.' The contract that I signed was the contract that I intended to play out," he told USA Today.

In the playoffs, Boldin caught 22 passes for 380 yards receiving (95 yards per game) and four touchdowns. He has led Baltimore in receiving yards in each of the past three seasons since being traded from Arizona.

I doubt it.  I think they'll get someone younger.  And if they're going "old," I'd say Woodson is more of a possibility than Reed.  I wish they would just keep Goldson.

But FA starts in about an hour, so I'll guess we'll see where the chips fall.

The haters crack me up....everyone outside of Baltimore thinks the Ravens are going to play like an expansion team next year.

But what others don't know is that baltimore still has plenty of young talent. The Ravens are reloading and building for the future while staying competitive at the same time. They will continue to build in the draft and make small splashes in free agency. Flacco and Rice are in their primes and Torrey Smith and Pitta are only going to get better. They still have a rock solid offensive line with only Birk retiring. The D-line is looking good with tons of depth ...Canty, Mcphee, Ngata, Spears. This is not a defensive team any more. It's all about the offense with Flacco at the helm. I predict he tosses 30+ TD's in 2013. He's won a superbowl, he'll have plenty of swagger.

I predict at least a 10-6 season in 2013.


The Ravens are not done making moves. Stay tuned.

They started 9-2 if that means anything. Then they started playing like shit for 3 straight games. Suggs, Ngata, and Joe are the leaders now.
They still have major talent to win at the key positions. QB, O-line, D-line. I'm not concerned about the future of the team.

Dude, you are like the EKul of the sports board.

Anyway, I think they make the playoffs next year, and hopefully Flacco has something to prove. Looks like Denver is dropping the ball again with Dumervil, I think letting Reed walk was a good sign.

The 2000 Ravens won a ring because of the most dominant defense to ever play. Dilfer was along for the ride.

And the Patriots are putting a lot of faith in Amendola being as effective as Welker. Aint happening. Amendola can't stay healthy and he's no where near as good. i bet Welker lights up the Patriots next year when they play.

Ravens sign Elvis Dumervill. What a great addition to the team! Suggs and Dumervill might be the best outside LB combo in the AFC if Suggs can return to form.

With Dumervill, Marcus Spears, Chris Canty, Ngata, Arthur Jones, Mcphee(who is only getting better), and Suggs....The Ravens are going to be getting after the QB in 2013.

Love it. If they can lure Karlos Dansby or Kerry Rhodes at FS...The Ravens defense will be much better than last year.

I was just thinking about him because the Raiders are expected to release him so I'm not sure if the Ravens would have to trade for him. He's only 24 years old with 3 seasons under his belt and definitely talented. I heard he's a bit of a dumb dumb so I'm not sure if he has the IQ to play for the Ravens. I mean...if he's so good then why are the Raiders wanting to release him rather than pay him and keep him considering his youth and potential? Makes you wonder.

Maybe you don't remember the lick that Pollard put on Ridley that caused that fumble in the 4th quarter. The Patriots got beat plenty of ways on that day.

I'm glad that Tom Brady thinks he's good enough to play until he's 40. I don't see it happening since he's getting slower moving around in the pocket. Only a matter of time before he takes a serious hit.
