  1. I predicted 6-10 WITH Julio and WITH Roddy getting healthy after the bye. The offensive lines, the receivers, the defense, and the coaching I've seen so far leads me to believe we will only win half that. 3-13. An exact reversal of our record, and a top-5 draft pick.
  2. Because he would like to actually sell out a game, and sell it out to people who won't leave early. Plus, there will be a pretty good excuse for seeing so many of the other team's jerseys in the stands.
  3. I'm about as positive as--- --- and we have about as much chance of salvaging this season as Ensign Timmy--- --- has at making it back to the ship alive.
  4. Nice guy? That's your big Smitty-defense? Bill Parcells, Belichick, Coughlin, Ditka, Walsh: none of them were "nice guys". Know what they were instead? Super Bowl winners.
  5. Even if the media is saying Smith will/should be fired, they likely have the wrong reasons for it. The people in the media generally do not pay attention to anything Falcon-related except highlights, and are generally not very bright.
  6. He talks about leg strength and hand strength. The bench does nothing for either. Just like the 40 does not truly measure "football speed", the bench does not measure "football strength". Fralic had something even more important than that: flawless technique. That is what Konz needs. My defending Konz' strength does not mean I think he's good to go. But you need to focus on the the real problem is: his tendency to inexplicably abandon good technique and a proper stance.
  7. Mike Johnson goes on IR every time night falls on him. He can't play anywhere, because he can never stay healthy.
  8. And that would be me. Just to be clear, "butt-muncher" was a joke in response to you saying to resume the name-calling. Show me a blocking stance that would utilize the motions of the bench press. The bench press isolates upper body muscles. Lower body strength is vastly more important than arm/chest strength in offensive line play. Like I said, I never benched at all. Not at all. I deadlifted and did the clean & jerk. Lifts that required total body strength. I grew up idolizing Vasily Alekseyev (my dad HATED my rooting for a godless commie over Americans), and got a weight bench for my 11th birthday so I could be just like him. I already linked you an article about Wisconsin linemen typically performing poorly at the bench press, because they do not emphasize it. They do not stress training just to look good at the combine: they train to build real functional strength. Back to Alekseyev, look at this examination of his training regimen. What lift do you not see listed in the repertoire of the strongest man in the world? A 2-time gold-medalist? The first man to clean & jerk 500 pounds? No bench press. So no: the bench press is not a useful metric for measuring strength. Unanswered is my observation that Konz was strong enough last year to avoid getting thrown to one side after being stood up. He got pushed backward, but most often kept himself between Ryan and the defender. That requires tremendous balance and lower body strength.
  9. No matter how long you watch--- ---those spaghetti-straps just won't slide any further. Trust me. I know.
