Minter, Reid who knows.......

I would figure that this has more to do with something non-football related.
Because Hurst is a player likely to be drafted in the NFL. If he quits because he is ticked at the coaches or some other issue like this...goodbye football career. Nobody will mess with a guy who quits on his t...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Expectations of Rivers...just how good is he gonna be? - tigersruledude on 9/21/12 at 11:42 am|
Who knows? He's thrown one pass!
Could he be...sure. If he is the starter in two years he will have had plenty of years in the program to get ready and he is physically similar to the QB he is replacing. If Mett is here for next season then Rivers could step in and do the same things.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Thoughts about the Defense - tigersruledude on 9/18/12 at 5:54 pm|
All the no sack games have shown is that you can't beat us by throwing short all game. Biggest worry going in was-
- new faces at CB...Mills looks great, nobody seems to much test Simon.
- new faces at safety (Reid as leader, Loston a starter) ...mixed. Reid has not been as good without Taylo...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ive been watching Mett pretty close - tigersruledude on 9/18/12 at 5:48 pm|
Good grief he doesn't have to be Andrew Luck. He just has to be competent. We went undefeated in the SEC last year with NOTHING at QB.
If he is just a guy who can be accurate and make you pay over the top if you load the box to stop our run game we are damn near in stoppable.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Had it been Simon instead of TM7... - tigersruledude on 8/12/12 at 9:25 pm|
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
If you don't know the difference between the Rover type position that TM7 played at his best (so much so that many other teams flat out called him a LB when scheming for him) and a player playing CB on an outside island...can't help you.
| Tiger Rant|| re: McNeese State Coach Says He Met With Tyrann Mathieu - tigersruledude on 8/12/12 at 9:19 pm|
Jenkins was a very fast cover corner.
Tyrann is a extremely talented player but on who will walk into the combine and measure 5'9 and weigh not nearly enough. He will likely not test super fast. He will have no natural pro position and now he has proven to be a major off the field risk.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Had it been Simon instead of TM7... - tigersruledude on 8/12/12 at 8:37 pm|
The OP is correct but not because TM7 was not the fantastic player we all know he was.
He is correct because Simons skills as an experienced cover corner are harder to replace.
TM7 was fantastic as the nickel corner. But it is a freelance read and react type position. It is the type of posit...

Well, i guess this depends on your definition of legitimate. Generally the Justices fall on one of the two sides of the spectrum. The "conservative" vs "liberal" tags are probably not specific enough to be fair. A better term is probably that their is:
