Feel Real Good:
Can't disagree with anything he said on Freeman. You can pretty easily ask if Mike Glennon is so much like Matt Ryan, why the entire NFL decided Ryan was a top 5 pick and Glennon a 3rd rounder.

only 1 team decided matt ryan was a top 5 pick, and only one team proved glennon a 3rd rounder.  but its the same league that thought alfred morris was a 6th, russ wilson a 3rd, and tom brady a 6th.

Boid Fink:
Good stuff.

A lot of "if if if if" when water coolering #5.

There is the issue with Free. Can he?

Come on he was going in the top 5 or at worst top 10. You know better than this.

Correct. I suppose if it wasn't for that one team, he could have been a 4th or 5th rounder, but I don't think we want to go there.

Running backs come out of nowhere every year. That's not news.

Great. We're betting on something that happened in 2000 and then again in 2012. I wonder why there are 12 years between those two examples.

I'll go there. Glennon was almost unanimously considered the 7th best QB in the draft. The Bucs made him the 3rd QB taken....so it's not unreasonable to assume he would have gone much later if not for the Bucs reaching in the 3rd round.

Tons of reasons why. I believe the comparison was made because of arm talent, because they both were able to stand in the pocket and make throws under pressure and finally because they both threw more picks that people thought they should in college.

I think people forget that Matt Ryan threw almost 20 ints his senior season but he was forced to throw the ball a ton and was trying to throw the ball into tight spaces. Those things also make his last year in college very similar to Glennons last year.

So why did he drop? Who knows? Maybe it's talent, maybe it's not talent. Did Aaron Rogers lack talent when he dropped or were teams just scared because of something else?

i dont think betting is the right word.  at least not with all our eggs.

Cosell thought he was  1 or 2...  albeit in a weak QB draft.

GoldsonAges:
I'm sure that all star OL of ours didn't have anything to do with Freeman's poor showing against the blitz last year, huh?

It must be all Freeman because the stat says so.

This is Freeman's year. If the OL stays healthy and Carimi gets healthy enough to play RT to his potential this offense could be good even against the better defenses.

And Revis is here to save the day on defense right?  He should be good for 120 tackles,  10 TFL, 10 sacks, 5 FF, 10 INT, 25 PD and about 5 TD'S.

The only thing missing is our crown. Actually we are probably 3 players away from the crown right now. Or at least having a legit shot.

Should seriously be 10 - 12 game winners this year. But one and done in the playoffs unless we get a favorable matchup.

All we need is for Schiano to not screw it up. He needs to adapt to the Pro game and stop the kneel down crap. He is a college coach with zero NFL credibility and that sort of thing isn't helping him in that regard. He needs legit schemes in the secondary and a little less Bush League shenanigans.
