A pretty good read. I look forward to see how far he can go as a coach.

#105038 Kennan Reynolds

Posted by tsylvester on 10 May 2016 - 04:01 PM

We knew this was a project when we drafted him and most of us are not ready to give up on him after one weekend, Campanaro has not done a damn thing since he's been here and the fanbase are still willing to give this guy a chance surely we can give Reynolds more than one weekend to see if he can contribute or not.

Camp is another wasted pick. As I said when he was drafted, too injury riddled.

At least, however, he had played the position before, and has excellent hands.

You missed the point though. They have never developed a wide out.

Add to that, they are so low on man power and talent at wide out & in the secondary why on earth do they take a chance on him when they could have chosen so many others who have better odds of making it in the NFL....

#104195 another young player retires-A.J Tarpley

Posted by tsylvester on 07 April 2016 - 12:32 PM


Says after his 4th concussion, enough is enough going forward. He signed as an undrafted free agent, 3 years $1.575 mil deal.

I can't say I blame these guys, shoot I had four concussions in highschool and never missed a game, let a lone a snap. Three more since then and at 50, I forget things just by leaving a room.

#99230 It's Not So Bad

Posted by tsylvester on 30 October 2015 - 06:41 AM

Definitely very bad and the fact that the games have been close doesn't mean anything to me. That's the difference between teams that go to the playoffs and those that don't.



The games being close is a distraction, this team is really, really bad. If the coaches and front office people think; well, the games are close so this team must also be, then we are in for a decade of bad football....

#96972 Ravens/Bronco's

Posted by tsylvester on 14 September 2015 - 06:22 AM

Shoots your theory in the ass of keeping the d healthy



Not really, Suggs, while very good, I was not expecting much from this year. The Ravens can replace him, the secondary and middle backers is my concern for health.

#96648 Ravens Insider: Asa Jackson is probably Ravens' toughest roster decision

Posted by tsylvester on 04 September 2015 - 06:52 AM

They have no choice but to keep him, he is the best of the worst in the secondary and they can tell him to just catch the punts, don't return them. And do so only if no one is around him for say, 50 yards......

#96321 Another one bites the dust in San Fran

Posted by tsylvester on 19 August 2015 - 06:53 AM







The NFL suspended San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jerome Simpson on Tuesday without pay for the first six games of the season for violations of the league's substance-abuse policy -- a penalty he hopes is his last after a rash of off-field issues have derailed his career.

The 49ers were aware of a likely suspension for Simpson for previous issues, but nothing that is known to have occurred since he joined the 49ers on a two-year deal as a free agent in March. San Francisco has made it clear he must continue to demonstrate positive behavior to remain in good standing with the team.




I get that, give the kid another chance, Aldon Smith was doing everything right too,,, oops...



Then this-



The 49ers have employed several players with legal problems in recent seasons, prompting CEO Jed York to say after the 2014 season ended that the team needed to be better. Excluding Simpson, San Francisco had 12 arrests involving seven different players since January 2012, most in the NFL.

"Our mission is very simple: the San Francisco 49ers win with class. We haven't won, and I don't think we've conducted ourselves with the level of class that I expect of our organization," York said then. "We've had off-the-field issues. That's going to happen in sports. The level that it's happened here is not unacceptable."




Stay classy.....

#96186 Thoughts on the game

Posted by tsylvester on 14 August 2015 - 07:47 AM





The starters played 2 series and didn't give up a first down.   what trouble did the linebackers have covering?




Look who the Saints had playing qb.....  The tight ends were open over the middle from start to finish. The crossing routes were open from start to finish. But for the starters, the defensive line got pressure almost constantly to flush & or rush the burger flippers they had playing quarterback so as to not give him a chance to make the throws.


Once the starters went out, the immediate backs ups, 2nd string, gave up chunks over the middle, missed tackles, took poor angles, mis read plays and these are vets playing second string.


Depth at line backer does not exist currently....

#95554 Baylor's tight end loses 25 pounds, down to 410

Posted by tsylvester on 21 July 2015 - 03:37 PM

At 6'-8" tall with good hands and quick feet..... I saw him last year, thought for sure they would move him to tackle or guard, but not so fast my friends (sure gonna miss that)  He was at a projected 465 last year......  This is his last year, not sure how he would project at the next level....   :scared:





Baylor seems dead set on having McGowan at tight end. And, well, that's just fine with us.

The fifth-year senior was on display during the Bears' open scrimmages and has a real chance of seeing the field as a pass-catcher in 2015.

"You can throw a ball as hard as you can at Quan, and he's going to catch it like this," Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles told Jake Trotter of ESPN.com. "It's incredible."

On Baylor's post-spring depth chart, McGowan is listed as a co-starter at tight end along with Tre'Von Armstead.

#93234 It is now time to talk about the draft

Posted by tsylvester on 20 March 2015 - 11:02 AM

Got a cousin who is a big Panther fan and he tells me they are very happy with Dickson. Dickson was drafted as a blocking TE by the Ravens and it appears he's blossomed in that role in Carolina. My cousin says he can't figure out why we let this guy go.



Well, after he has been with them a little while and they see he can't catch the ball consistantly, your cousin and the Panthers, will know exactly why the Ravens let him walk. That is, if he holds up for more than 10 games per season........

#92161 Torrey Smith

Posted by tsylvester on 07 February 2015 - 08:50 AM

I'm so conflicted by Torrey. He's a very likable guy, a good representative of the team. My wife has a Torrey jersey, he and Tucker are really the only Ravens she knows/likes. However, the truth is what you state above.

To add to what you said: while he has speed when have we ever seen a clean deep ball from Flacco to Torrey? It is always overthrown or Torrey has to come back for the ball. For whatever reason Torrey and Flacco are never the same page short or deep. There was an analysis I posted earlier in this topic that stated most of Flacco's INTs are when he throws to Torrey.

Another thing on Torrey, and maybe my observation isn't justified, but I just don't see the right type of competitiveness. I don't see good run blocking. This season he looked lackadaisical too often. The body language was telling. He also lets opponents get under his skin too easily, we saw this in the Pats game with the two penalties. We see this in Torrey's Twitter feed. He cannot leave the troll tweets alone, he has to respond to everyone single one. I understand it must be tough to be in his position, but it comes with the territory and he needs to ignore it.

In conclusion, I am more scared to lose Torrey than I want to re-sign him. I could see him going to New England and putting up big stats. I'm hoping a team like Oakland, Carolina, or Jacksonville pays him a lot of money to make losing him easier to swallow.



Well stated, he is a terrible blocker. Most of the long runs over the past few years have come when he is on the side lines.  To have long runs you have to have good blocking receivers, sometimes even to get the edge outside and be able to turn it up field.


Smith, yep,a  great guy, a great team player. But he can't find the ball in the air, he doesn't have the timing down on his routes, even a simple 9 route. This is why often times the ball looks to be over thrown, under thrown, off target. The qb has to throw it early, to a spot down field. That spot is determined and practiced in camp, in practices, in preseason. 


Yet in real games, Smith routinely gets rerouted by db's, slowed up by them or just flat out runs past them when he is supposed to put a stutter move there. These stutters are not always just to get him some separation but they allow the play time to develop, no different than some crossing routes where the man coming across has to slow play it sometimes to allow the zone to clear out.


Most pass plays are built on timing. This is the issue with RGIII with the Skins. His timing on his drops are off, making it appear the receivers can't get open, when in fact, if he took the proper drop, or used the proper timing on the drop, they are open.


Here, yes, some of the throws are just off, hey, it happens with every quarterback. But many of them are right where they need to be, but the receiver, in this case, Smith, is not where he needs to be when he needs to be there.
