Recommended Posts

Can Pollack give Marvin a sleeper hold and take over?

I’m not buying this bullshit for one second.

Buy it!   Sources say Pollack handed Ced a bottle of Heinz Ketchup.  Dude flipped it over gently tapped the “57” and appropriately condimented a plate of fries.

Same source indicated when this test was done previously by Alexander, Ced inserted a straw and drank it like a soda.  

If true.  Unquestioned progress and the light has come on.

Yeah as drinking like a soda thing. Of a Ketchup thing. Like it was nothing!

I'm still surprised the Cowboys hired Alexander so quickly,  but it makes sense, he has a ton of experience, and just needs really good players, or they'll get a bunch of swings-and-misses trying to develop anything but polished rookie talent, and run into roster issues.

Eifert’s hurt again.  The team won’t specify what’s wrong, media calling it a mystery injury.  

Also, clipboard QB just collected a DUI.

Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick Billy Price still isn’t able to do any drills against the defense, and won’t be for the duration of this mandatory minicamp, but the former Ohio State center said it’s only a matter of days before he gets full medical clearance on the pectoral injury he suffered at the Combine.


“I’m going to be cleared next week when I go for my all check,” Price said prior to Tuesday’s practice. “I just did 305 this morning on the bench. We’re OK.”

 

Woo hoo!

Why am I not surprised with Eifert getting hurt?

He's technically not hurt. He's not back yet from the most recent back surgery. Everyone had to know when they signed him that this was a part of it, not knowing if or when he would be cleared. There really isn't anything new here.

Marvin sounded put off by Eifert’s. Mysterious absence.

Gresh was a frustrating player because you could see the athleticism that should have equaled more production.  Fumbled a lot. At least that guy could line up and block.

Where is Lap throwing Eifert under the bus? 

Eifert still with the team but he’s a major loss from 2015.  Along with Jones, Sanu, Big Tits, Whit, and Z.

I'm reading that this was a recent "tweaking" of his back, but whatever. I have little confidence our porcelain tight end will be able to stay on the field. Next man up time.

Would anyone put 100 on Eifert playing 16 games this year ?

wonder what if there’s a line on that in Vegas

3 back surgeries and can’t get going after the 3rd.  Next.

I'm not sure if you all saw the Pollack interview the other day.

People want to know why Westerman isn't starting and mentioned that PFF graded him as the best LG in the entire NFL during week 1 of the preseason.

He essentially said he doesn't give a damn what PFF says.  

You can love that or hate it. I fall into the love it category.

I saw that and thought it was hysterical.
I simply want the best guys out there on the line, as the season depends on them.

Yeah as really protecting Dalton and the RB's.

I think I read on the official site that Pollack seemed happy with Bobby Hart at the RT position.

I can only hope that Pollack and his scheme make a big difference for Hart, because he sucked fat goat balls at RT last year for the Giants.
Like he was generally considered one of the worst RT's in all of football last year.  Marshall Newhouse was better than him.  Let that sink in a minute...

And if that's the case...  How bad does Ogbuehi and Fisher have to be ??
Fisher has that heart thing, but I suppose we all knew Ogbuehi is a bust at this point.

Hart looked serviceable in the starting spot last week.  Ced played against backups and looked just barely ok.  He fell down for no apparent reason a few times. 

Maybe it’s Hart by default.

You never know.  We've had guys flounder here, go elsewhere, and become serviceable starters.

Coaching, scheme, fit...or sometimes simply a fresh start are all it takes.

I didn't realize how young Hart is.  Maybe he's matured.  Lots of factors to consider.

Like I said, I'm hopeful.  If Hart can solidify the right side of the line, no one will think about his previous season with the Giants.

I'm really hopeful Pollack is the difference with these guys.

Wait, what? Unless alcohol or drugs are involved, how the hell do you fall down without being contacted by another player?

I went back and watched him specifically on every play he was on the field (stalker alert).  Most of his falls were when he seemed required to run and make a timing block a few steps away.  Instead of doing that, he fell down.

I hope Ced saved a lot of the cash from his first contract, I’ll say that much.  His career might get up, but it will walk with a pronounced limp for the rest of his life.
