Vinyl, Cement board, or Smartside?

Brown is a guy that seems to be ready to play. He is athletic, good length, good hands, good shooting stroke... struggles as a finisher, but I think with his athleticism he could develop there. He definitely gets it in D- it was nice seeing him get up into Klay Thompson and force a turnover. But he hasn’t been getting playing time. They’re giving time to Delly, Kilpatrick... but until recently he’s been out of the rotation. It demonstrates the lack of understanding Kidd has with his own role players. 

Wilson is completely lost. He’s not an NBA player. He may be Horst’s Alexander...

In the Ted Thompson era, one of the key periods of the NFL calendar I think most Packer fans tried so hard not be excited over, because, well what was the point?

Now? I think fans have reason to be excited. Not saying Gute will go hog wild but yes, I think he will make some moves. Speaking of...

Watching the Vikings offense on Sunday got me to thinking.  Receivers today, for whatever reason (skill, gloves, practice) are so amazing at catching balls that they really don't need to be open to make a play.  On Sunday, there were many plays where Keenum just threw the ball up high to his receiver and let his receiver go up and make a play.  Theilan and Diggs made some great catches but also, every time, there was the possibility of an interference call.  The chances of an interception seem small compared to the positive results (catch or call).

Maybe scheming to get receivers open is going to become a thing of the past.  Maybe the NFL of the future will feature tall athletic receivers running down field and waiting for high passes to be lobbed to them.  Maybe cornerbacks are all going to have to become 6' 8" to defend this offense.  

As long as receivers continue to make the impossible catches they are making ..... no pass is really defendable anymore.  Not if the receiver can get his hands on it.

about all the crap that is going in the playoffs....... Can we have a crap area?? Or a  ****hole area??  Or a topic area that we just need a place to swear, kick arse, puke, or just do whatever we need to do to get over what we just saw, or experienced?? 

The Second Half

...begins today against MIA as second part of a tough 3 game stretch (GS, MIA, WAS). Some good signs of the play on Friday even in the loss... but really we shouldn’t expect anything more than the inconsistency of the first half until Parker comes back. Then we’ll know...
