  1. That's why I cracked up when I read the title of this thread. I never know what Buttle is talking about, but I appreciate the guy and am always entertained by him......
  2. I never like to hit a guy when he is down, so I wish him the best. Personally though, I think he is done....
  3. How do you figure he would fill the void at NT? Defensive tackle is one of the hardest positions to play in the NFL, and requires great hand work and technique. It would take a good 2-3 years of coaching before this guy was even serviceable. And seeing he flunked out of school and has been in trouble with the law I doubt he is the sharpest tool in the shed with the greatest work ethic. In other words, it's not going to happen. If all it took was some 370lb guy to clog the middle I can go down to my local bar right now and get you somebody to fill in. It's also been stated in a few places that his conditioning sucks (handstands not withstanding) and he would have to lose a ton of weight to even think about playing in the NFL. Nick Mangold would toss this guy and his no technique all over the field. UDFA, or I would pass. JMHO.... http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/dt/walterthomas.html
  4. Jeez, I can't believe the things people are saying about this guy on the Jets boards today. The only gamble I would take on him is as an UDFA. First, he played a few games for Oklahoma before failing out of school. He then played two games for Northwest Mississippi Community College before being arrested on some robbery charges or something and never played again. In the few games he has played in his career against subpar competition he was never that dominant. Combine that with poor conditioning which he displayed at the Texas vs the Nation game (back flips don't mean much if you can't stay on the field more than one play). I can't believe someone would give up any draft pick for a "player" like this. I prefer my draft picks to have actually shown some skills on the football field.....
  5. And he laughed when he said it....
  6. How dare you question the wisdom that is junk. Don't you know that he is never wrong....
  7. I'd be worried about that myself if I was a Raiders fan. He scares me...
  8. As Parcells used to say, once you start thinking about retirement, you're already there....
  9. Just because you don't agree with their message doesn't make them kooks....
  10. I don't believe you are correct here. He was screwed by the Pats when they franchised him with the non-exclusive tag. In that case he is only entitled to the top five salaries at his position from last year which I believe is about 5.8 million. The Pats basically took about 2 million out of his pocket. I'd be pissed as well, especially when they are throwing the money at marginal FAs.... I'll see if I can find a link about the compensation. ---edit--- Here it is, instead of getting 7.7 million as exclusive he is entitled to only 5.8. Knowing this and watching Clements get 22 big ones guaranteed has to piss the guy off.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franchise_Tag
  11. Neither, marijuana or alcohol typically destroy neurons. They can both cause damage to the brain but they are not usually killing cells. The NORML website is probably not the best place to get medical information
  12. It was called Hawaii Five-O because Hawaii is the 50th state.....
  13. Actually this thread is a poll to pick which of the stated so called "busts" got a raw deal. Personally, I believe it was Blair Thomas, he got kind of screwed here. But who cares, I thought you meant Boz in your last comment seeing he was on the least...
  14. If said injuries were due to his rampant steroid abuse, I have no pity.... ----edit---- Sorry, thought you meant Boz
  15. Mangini has already stated that Wadsworth is going to play OLB, the same with Bowens. AFAIK, the only DEs we have on the roster are Ellis, Kimo, Coleman, Haynes and Hamilton. If a DE is the most highly rated person on their board when they pick, I don't think they would hesitate to go that direction....
  16. Well, we'll see, but everything I have read to date states that information is not correct. Here are just a couple... "Starting in 2008, the Jets will be relocating their training camp and headquarters to Florham Park, N.J., ending a partnership with Hofstra University that dates back to 1974." http://nassaunews.org/news/2006/05/ "Three grass fields on site will likely be seeded next summer, and the complex, which will cost more than $50 million, is scheduled to be ready for training camp in summer 2008, team officials said." http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-10634.html
  17. Wow, that seems like a lot of money for a 30 year old slightly above average corner. But I guess in this new market it's the going rate...
  18. It will not be Giants Stadium, they are already shopping the name around. In addition, they are looking at marketing different "corners" of the stadium for additional revenue. A lot of it is still up in the air, but one thing for certain is it will never be called Giants Stadium...
  19. That's not true, starting next year all camps will be held in NJ....
  20. That was in 71 when the Jets lost 52-10 in Dallas but it wasn't on Thanksgiving day, rather 12/04/71. The following year the Jets lost in Detroit 20-37 on Turkey day (11/23/72)....
  21. I hated that man with a passion. I used to punch my radio during his post game news conferences where he blamed everybody but himself. Total tool....
  22. It is my understanding that the new stadium will have an area where both teams can portray their history in whatever way they see fit. Having such an area honoring the players mentioned would be nice... "In addition, a hotel and conference center, a tailgating park and an interactive center that would combine the two teams' Halls of Fame with the NFL Experience would be built."
