Phun in Philly

Seeing the clusterfuck that we are, you have to wonder if ol’ Chipper is counting his blessings to be out of Philly. Sam Bradford had the gall to complain about the Eagles drafting of Carson Wentz. Poor Sam and his 2 year/$35 million deal is butt hurt over the  fact he has to compete for his job. So he split non-mandatory workouts so he could collect his thoughts. Or money and thoughts. Whatever. Wentz will take over at some point, or he proves to be a bust. Bradford can only hope to hold things down until he;s replaced. But $35 mill leaves a pretty nice cushion to land on.

Michael Bennett replied by saying he almost puked after hearing this. Good for Michael . . .

Who says the NFL isn’t fun?

    It’s hard to understand how some people think. So much money and so much dysfunction.

    • Winder says:

      O yeah, fuck philly.

        Philly puts the Phun in DysPhunctional Winder.
        City of Brotherly Love my A$$.
        Nothing but a bunch of haters.
        Trust me, I know it first-hand.
        If you’re a Philly Fan, you’re golden.
        Anyone else, you’re public enemy #1.

      • NJ49er says:

        Might be better to suggest Phunc in Dysphunctional perhaps? 😀

        Tell us how you really feel, NJ.

        RT, they’re a strange bunch.
        Wear the wrong colors, be prepared for a confrontation.
        No joke, they’d punch their own Mother in the face if she put on enemy colors.
        Easily the worst fans in all of Sports IMO.

    Never been, prolly never will.

    A MUCH better, smarter effort tonight at both ends of the court – the defense and defensive boards were much improved, the bench was downright dominant. The biggest improvement and most significant for the series, though? They were looking to penetrate on every possession, no more sloppy quick outside shots. Drive and kick. The Warrior train is rollin’ again…

    Nine down, seven to go…

    Yeah, I liked Varejo’s energy and craziness. He’s kind of a loose cannon, but it’s good to see him flying around out there. Someone has to bang on Adams all the time to get him odd his game.

    Good news for us
    Jimmy ward graded out as the 3rd best CB in the league over the last 5 games last year.

    Ian Williams was rated among the best NT over that time !

  6. Nipper says:

    Yeah the good news is welcome. The other blog loves being negative at times.

  7. Lurker John says:

    Eric Rogers looks like an intriguing prospect at wideout. He at least has the experience of playing pro ball in Canada. A lot of good players have come out of the CFL. He’s certainly got the size the Niners could use.

    DeAndre Smelter is raw as hell, but has the physical tools that could be molded into a good receiver.

  8. Winder says:

    Glad Cain got his first win, it was a good one. I don’t really have anything against the cubbies, I always like going to their games when they came to town. But, the media has made then into the “27” Yankee’s and I ain’t buying it.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Seeing as the 27 Yanks won the series 20 years after the Cubbies last WS victory tells you something. They might as well be calling the lovable losers the best team ever.

    Like ESPN breathlessly proclaiming Tony Romo the best QB in Dallas history after done meaningless October victory

    The worst playoff game I’ve seen the Warriors play in these two great years. Couldn’t buy a bucket, totally lost their cool after Draymond’s flagrant foul in the 2nd, went from tied to 25 down in under a quarter. Awful.. They’re going nowhere but home if they keep this up.

    Tuesday’s game in OKC is suddenly critical.

    • Winder says:

      And yet, Baalky is still here. Why or how is totally beyond me. He should have been fired long before this last draft.

      • 12th Man says:

        I was a supporter of his. I figured it was very difficult to add talent to what was perhaps the most talented roster in the league in 2011 and still think that’s true.

        IMO the main problem has been how he has stuck to this mantra of taking injured players relatively high in the draft and so far not much to show for it. Looking back it has obviously been a mistake and left the team thin. Something he is obviously away because he was very quick to point out that his latest ACL all-star will be ready by camp.

        Have to face facts, other than the safety position and Hyde he hasn’t got much talent on the team from drafting and has done as good as nothing in free agency.

        I figured he would go guns blazing in free agency, just in case the draft class doesn’t produce a verifiable star (quite likely), but he stuck to his game plan of building through the draft, something he has very limited success doing.

        Head shaker. This year better work or Jed will have more planes over his head with Baalke’s name on them.

    I think this may be the best article I’ve read about Kap. Nice gif’s illustrating the points. Shows his strengths and weaknesses.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Nice article. I’ve been saying similar things. He has the ability to be successful. In the right system. I said the same for Alex and it came to pass. No great insight but the coach and the QB need to be in synch. Harbaugh himself went away from what initially made Kappy great. His ability to run. By destressing his running ability, teams didn’t have to spy him as much.

    They wanted him to play like Peyton Manning, not Russell Wilson.
