|2 days 16 hours ago||regarding the power||
does M really use the backside guard to lead? seems more effective to use that guard on the DE and let the FB lead through the hole. as drawn up I suppose that makes sense because of proximity, but in general I think id rather have OL blocking DL.
|4 days 16 hours ago||im calling it now||
he starts every game he is eligible for.
|1 week 5 days ago||I dont think he trusts his new QB just yet||
And with the RBs ineffective, the playbook sharnk on him a little bit
|1 week 5 days ago||IF a coaching change happens||
I hope its Chad Morris. Unless Georgia Tech hires him first, in which case, yay.
|1 week 5 days ago||so lazy||
look at Pettigrew's drop rate last year and compare it to some bigger name wideouts
|1 week 6 days ago||huh?||
they rolled up ~30 on Iowa, Wisconsin, and PSU. Thats more than good enough to win normally.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||yikes||
that thought gave me a facial tic for a minute
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I said the EXACT same thing||
the pass rush was so undisciplined, but unfortunately Clark was part of the problem at least once that i remember. Golson had clear lanes to step into and angles to the sideline all night, while Gardner had hands on his jersey every time he tried to anything after his initial drop. Even the tuck fumble, Miller actually held up to the bull rush for the most part, but Miller's guy stayed disciplined and put his hand in Gardner's throwing lane.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||IIRC||
there was a lot of talk Lloyd didnt even want to come back at all after 2006 and Martin had to talk him into it. so you may be mistaken there.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||uh...lol||
can you be 4-7 in your last 10 games?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||re: #2||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||why?||
there is literally no reason to think that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||of course I can||
and i have, as there are 35-40 games on film of Calvin excelling at everything that makes a receiver great, while also demonstrating his unmatched physical talents. im not sure where your own athletic resume has any relevance. actually seems like a diversion from having to make any argument of your own.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||lets look deeper at these numbers||
weird post, considering you admit you watched him play all of one college game and managed to draw such conclusions. but lets look at those numbers with more context.
Mario Manningham 137/2310/27
Henne's stats over that time period
588 comp 6972 yds 52 TDs
Adding in Mallett's totals for 2007 brings those to
649 completions 7864 yds 59 TD's
Subtracting Manninghams stats gives you
512 completions for 5554 yards and 32 Td's
Now take Calvins 178/2927/28
Reggie Ball's totals for those years + Taylor Bennett's #s from the 2006 Gator Bowl
500 comp 6458 yards 50 TD's
Subtracting Calvin's numbers gives you
322 completions 3531 yds 22 TD's
Thats a season of work for a good QB. Calvin's numbers excluded brings a yearly average of 107 completions for 1177 yards, and 7.3 TDs. Michigan's Manningham-free yearly averages are 170.7 completions, for 1851.3 yds, and 10.7 TDs. Calvin accounted for almost half of our total passing yards in that time frame and 56% of our TD's. As a percentageof total team production, Manningham doesnt even come close to what Calvin did. And even still, Calvin out-produced Manningham by 40 catches, 600 yards, and a TD despite working with a QB several rungs below Henne (or Mallett) on the talent ladder. Quarterback play as poor as Calvin had to deal with does not make Mario Manngham even close to the player Calvin was and is.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||as I would imagine? lol||
I watched him play live at least 20 times. You?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||bad comparison||
I watched Reggie Ball go entire quarters of football without even throwing to Calvin. If Chad Henne had been our QB Calvin would have obliterated every record in the book. But even still, relying on numbers at all means you didnt see much of him at GT.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||this is getting a little ridiculous||
The megatron stuff needs to be toned down a touch. Calvin was doing stuff like this to All Americans as a true freshman. Funchess is big, and quite nimble for his size, but its unfair to him to keep trotting out comparisons to the best WR to ever play college, and probably even professional, football. Let him write his own story.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||sounds good to me||
when USC was at its peak in the 00's they were unafraid to play freshmen if they were the best option, and they played a lot of them. I have to assume that's the message being conveyed.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Jack Miller||
his blocking in #8 was the best done by a Michigan player in well over a year
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||shane morris||
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||what are you talking about?||
do you know what "bash" means?
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||lol||
because it seems to be the reality of the situation id say
|3 weeks 1 day ago||just came to post this re: #1||
Michigan fans all across the country now have to change their pants
|3 weeks 3 days ago||countess?||
im fairly confident that right now he is no lower than the second best player on the whole team.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||what? lol||
you could tell all that from its 4 foot flight path?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||dont understand why they appealed||
was it just to show him that they were doing their due diligence to get the waiver?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||damn...missed that||
I think my brain couldnt compute that so it just disregarded it
|3 weeks 6 days ago||LOL||
the two guys you named as true standouts are the 2 guys that did the least in the NFL out of that whole group.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||cmon||
Fargas's leg wasnt the reason A-Train went for 1700 yards his sr year and won Off. ROY in the NFL.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||uh||
Anthony Thomas and Chris Perry were definitely true standouts.
