  1. around the NFL training camp observations

    If it mattered then WHY is he out of the league? And there have been countless others as well. Remember how good Rusty Smith was at times in the preseason? I remember Blaine Gabbert lightning it up for Jacksonville. Most of these guys, if facing vanilla defenses without a pass rush can hit these throws. After the Mettenberger experiment I refuse to ever take preseason performances seriously again.
  2. around the NFL training camp observations

    Didn't we go through this in 2014 and 2015 with Mettenberger? And he's out of the league now. Let's give it some time before crowning Kizer.
  3. Rhode Island Player: Al Del Greco Birth City: Providence College: Auburn Teams: Packers, Cardinals, Oilers/Titans Stats: 248 games, 347 FGM, 449 FGA, 543 XPM, 551 XPA Why him? Welcome to Coffee Talk! Here's a topic: Rhode Island, neither a road, nor an island. Discuss. Next topic: Al Del Greco, greatest NFL player from Rhode Island, neither a defensive player nor really an offensive player. Talk among yourselves. OK, old SNL bits aside, a kicker is an odd choice for greatest NFL player from any state, even tiny Rhode Island. But there's a reason Del Greco got the nickname "Automatic." He's 19th on the NFL's all-time career points list with 1,584 and 18th for field goals made with 347. Del Greco racked up all those points playing for three different teams in five different cities over 17 NFL seasons. Lastly, is there a more Rhode Island last name than Del Greco? Case closed. Runners-up: Will Blackmon
  4. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    He wasn't talking about an in-prime Matt Schaub. He was talking about 2017 Matt Schaub.
  5. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    Roethlisberger was never found guilty. If he was he'd be in prison. Ray Lewis was never found guilty. If he was he'd be in prison. Kaepernick put up a bunch of garbage time numbers on a 2-14 team.
  6. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    No. And you're completely missing the point. Anyone who is in the league that has done things way worse than what Kaepernick did is a productive player, most of which at less high profile positions than QB. Again, if Kaepernick was a productive player he would be in the league now. I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about this.
  7. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    For people good enough to warrant it. A backup QB or marginal starter is not good enough to put up with the fan outcry.
  8. They said that Will Blackmon is second. So apparently there are others.
  9. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    Because of the fans disdain for it. Owners don't want to put up with that for a backup QB or marginal starter.
  10. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    That Kaepernick isn't better than the likes of Connor Cook and Scott Tolzien? I think everyone knows he's better than those guys.
  11. Told you this wasn't going anywhere...

    And several others. I don't think anyone is disputing that. But he's not worth the headache as a backup QB. I also don't think he's an ideal backup as there's only so many types of offenses that he can run.

    You would think that after the 2014 and 2015 preseasons that you would have learned your lesson on not taking anything that happens in the preseason seriously.
  13. That's correct it's Del Greco.
  14. Here's a clue....he played for the team in all locations.
  15. Anyone want to guess who CBSSports.com listed as the best player ever from Rhode Island?
