Is there a schedule for OTA's and training camp yet?

You think Alex Green knows he's on the bubble? "Youre cut. No wait, youre not cut but now Pryor has your number. You can both wear it until youre cut for real."

This Thurman story is a joke. This girl was previously arrested for filing a false report, so it's clearly in her DNA to make stuff up. 12 witnesses and a manager saw nothing. No charges filed. Yet everywhere the story is still reported as if Thurman did smack her in the face. Why is te NYDN reporting that the girl described the incident as "scary" when there is no evidence that there even was an incident? I've been to Pazzo Pazzo, the only thing scary is their inflated prices for average food.

So this woman admits she flipped Thurman the bird and Thurman pushed her hand out of the way, lightly grazing her face by accident in the process and she admits she wasn't hurt?


I would assume the NFL has concluded their investigation of this "incident" by now.


I accidentally stood on a girl's foot at a bar once and she refused to accept my apology.  Should I be in jail?

Any reports from camp about where all these guys are lining up? Particularly interested in the OL and the defensive front seven, guys like Qvale, Gabriel, Dozier, Campbell, Aboushi, Ijalana, Schlauderaff, Thompson, Chappelear, Enemkpali, Grady, Cato-Bishop, etc.

@namvetjet  

The article mentions how he likes to run with the football and that was what jumped out to me on his tape. He has good field vision and elusiveness running with the ball.

The team also announced that Alex Green's mom's new favorite player is Calvin Pryor.

@Michael Conklin  They should at the very least be saying that he "is alleged to have slapped a woman" not that he "allegedly slapped a woman" because that's pretty obviously not the case even by the woman's own admission.


That episode of Louie was on over here this week where he accidentally "punches" a woman and get sued for loads of money.  This reminds me of that although actually below the Santonio Holmes iPod "incident" in terms of severity.

I accidentally burned a girl with a lit cigarette at a club. It really was her fault though, she leaned right into it.

@tsjc68  I believe Qvale has been working at left tackle, Dozier at left guard and Freeman at center with what I would assume is the "first unit".

@tsjc68  I looked earlier for this stuff, not many detailed reports at all. Enemkpali had a sack one day off the edge (no one specified which side, though), so that's good? Saunders is apparently looking like a class above the rest out there as far as the WR's go. Amaro/Pryor impressed, as expected. No one besides Boyd can throw an accurate pass (including coaches).

@tsjc68  

Campbell, Aboushi, Ijalana and Schlauderaff are not attending.


Of the rest, the only one I've seen mentioned is IK who has apparently flashed coming off the edge.

@jake100 @Bent  I apologized over and over again, offered to buy her and her friends a round of drinks and she just wouldn't accept it.


I wasn't even drunk, someone tripped me over as I was making my way through a crowded doorway.


This was almost 20 years ago, but still bugs me.

@jake100  If its proven she is lying he could probably get a few bucks from her.

@jake100 @Bent  I'm not giving her any.


Oh you mean the girl in the DT "incident"?


What basis does she have?  Compensation for his involvement in a non-incident which inadvertently caused her to make herself look bad in the media?

Those alignments are encouraging. If your doubts about Ijalana being able to approach his pre-injury level prove true, perhaps Qvale could become our new LT developmental "heir to Brick" project play.

@Bent  Thank you kind Sir. I dont even need to ask if you meant to step on that girls foot or not. I know the answer.

Maybe I should conceal my true identity on the internet and not engage in any social media.  Oh wait.

@Bent @jake100  statute of limitations for accidentally stepping on someone's foot in a bar is 20 years, i would lay low for a few more months

@jake100 @Bent  I would have been wearing just normal shoes.  I don't often wear steel-toed construction boots on a night out.  Or ever, in fact.


Should she have been standing in a crowded doorway in a pair of dainty high heels?


I'm still clearly traumatized by this after all these years, maybe I could track her down and get damages.

@Bent  So women are difficult to deal with across the pond too huh? Go figure.

@Bent @__fense @jake100  Well okay, maybe that one was frivolous, but anyone with 3rd degree burns can understand how damaging it is, and how much hospital bills cost. The woman still has scars from it. Coffee should never be 'Scaringly hot'.

Bent

@__fense @jake100 @Bent  I heard that in a similar case in the UK, someone spilled the coffee on themselves deliberately and still got thousands in damages.

__fense

@jake100 @Bent  To be fair, that person got third degree burns from the spilled coffee and was only asking for enough to pay for her hospital bills, and then the judge bumped up the penalty to millions because he thought McDonalds was going to blow it off. That lawsuit wasn't frivolous.

How about the guys on the subway who were terrorizing passengers then got shot and managed to win lawsuits against the guy who ended their reign of terror?

Unwanted sexual advances....haven't you figured out that men are SUPPOSED to be able to read a womans' mind?

@jake100 @Bent  Like that guy who broke into someone's house and then successfully sued them because he twisted his ankle on their property?

When Qvale blocks his man onto the ground, that's a "potatoe pancake".

@tsjc68  

Agreed but they might put someone out of position just because they don't have enough bodies....... the results in rookie camp are pretty meaningless.

Yeah, I could care less how anyone looks (pretty irrelevant) but I'm very curious to see how these guys are being lined up and what assignments they're given. That's much more useful info.

Flashing at rookie mini-camp is not something to get too excited about......it is better than nothing.

Bent
Bent moderator

@a57se @Bent @tsjc68  It's impossible for him to flash against somebody good, because there's nobody established participating, but I guess flashing is better than not flashing, especially in a non-contact environment.

Brendan

@a57se It's been noted at different times, more of an "overall, Ik has looked good" type of thing. These camps are not reported as well as regular training camp at all.
