[quote]No I know what you're saying and I agree, he would probably have more success at LSU with Cam as offensive coordinator, but he still might have decent numbers at Auburn and make it to the NFL. He'll be fine.[/quote]

Republicans are realizing that the Tea Party is truly a different more conservative party that has a different agenda & an unwillingness to compromise.
Tea Party needs to stop inoculating themselves by running as Republicans when you're constantly ripping members who aren't "Conse...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Who killed your team today? - MannyG on 11/3/13 at 7:14 pm|
I killed them, it's all on me.
I chose to sit Zac Stacy for LeSean McCoy
I chose to sit Keenan Allen for Josh Gordan
Oh yeah, Josh Gordan is my accessory. McCoy did decent but I talked myself out of putting Stacy in for him....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Lance Moore or Charles Clay - MannyG on 10/26/13 at 9:37 pm|
Definitely Moore if Jimmy Graham is out. If Jimmy plays I still give Moore a slight advantage because I think Brees will try to involve him in his first game back....

| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: VOTE - Pick my bench stash - MannyG on 10/25/13 at 12:37 pm|
Tough call. Since there is a possibility of David Wilson being back in the mix for Week 16 & 17 I'll go with Vereen.
I also would have to think about the merits of picking up Bryce Brown just in case LeSean McCoy goes down with an injury. Actually I'm trying to make that very decision....

[quote]It's way more than that.
20 hour bus ride to Indianapolis and back for class Monday is just insane.
It's a corrupt admin neglecting the state of their team, skimming of the budget to get their cut, won't update the facilities, keep firing caches and not providing quality meals.[/quote...
| Political Talk|| re: What is Louisiana To Do About Grambling? - MannyG on 10/18/13 at 9:06 pm|
From 2007-2008 Gramblings funding has gone from 31.6 million to 13.8 million. Roughly a 150% decrease.
Yes, cuts had to be made & a lot of wasteful spending probably occurred, but that is beyond ridiculous. This is where the problem starts. Seems like the plan is basically to cut funding from the...

[quote]Dropped: Bengals D

It's dumb but I understand it. Figured the Colts would score big vs the Raiders & he could sneak the Bengals back on his roster without risking any of his positional players.
Not smart short term thinking but I see what he was going for. ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: After today's game does Tanner still get cut? - MannyG on 8/25/13 at 6:40 pm|
Last WR & last RB is a really tough call. I have:
[b]Preston over Tanner - [/b]Being physically stronger, having added special teams value, & having a 40 reception season with the Bucs in 2011 will make the difference.
[b]Robinson over Cadet - [/b]Much less confident here, its really a toss up...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: How comfortable are you with this (partial) depth chart? - MannyG on 8/7/13 at 12:42 pm|
At DE insert Jay Richardson probably at the expense of Johnson
At OLB keep only 5 & drop Thomas, even if you keep 6 go with Baraka Atkins over Thomas
Other than that don't see any real issues...

[quote]I actually don't think we really need a high scoring 5. Most of our front court points will come from Davis and Anderson, so I'd rather a C that can defend and rebound, with less emphasis on offense. Essentially the opposite of Rolo
We need more scoring to come from the wing and the bench...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Chris Chamberlain - MannyG on 4/30/13 at 11:40 am|
Dallas kept 8 LB's last year 4 OLB's & 4 ILB's. I think we might actually keep 9 around (5 OLB's cause we have no Ware or Spencer)
Chamberlain or Reddick
Rufus or Chase or Romeus or Eric Martin...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Chris Chamberlain - MannyG on 4/30/13 at 10:34 am|
Right now I have Chris Chamberlain as a slight favorite to win the 4th & final Inside LB spot over UFA Kevin Reddick. I think Reddick is redshirted & stashed on IR or the practice squad....

I see Jason Smith competing for & winning the RT position. If so, Strief will be cut & Marcel Jones will back Smith up.
LT - Charles Brown, Terron Armstead
RT - Jason Smith, Marcel Jones

safeties are cheap if you can evaluate DBs
especially when we have a bigger need at a MUCH more important position (rush LB)[/quote]
Junior & Victor are more capable as rush backers than Jenkins & Harper are as Safeties...
