I wish I could remember where I read it but personal fouls are down. In 2009 there were 620 odd PFs called and last year it was about 460.

I have nothing to base it on but my "feeling" is Sharpton will not be healthy much but Mays will. A healthy Sharpton IMO would be better than Mays but not if he is on the sidelines.

Found this interesting site.......lists all NFL fines/players/$/action resulting in fine, by year........last year got pretty expensive.
http://justfines.com/listFines.php?year=2009

And this site also breaks down the stats on the types of penalties by year.

Honestly, I think swearinger's being sold as a big hitter is overblown. Yeah, he has some big hits and he will crush you if it sets up right, but he's not a guy out there just head hunting. He a much more well rounded player than people tend to think. I'm not at all worried about him being a constant risk for flags, fines and suspensions. That's really not his game tbh.

I don't get the opinion that sharpton is a better player than Mays. I mean, he could be...but I can't even think back and picture him doing a bunch of good things. He hasn't had more than 15 solo tackles in a season....

I'm not saying the guy isn't good but I can't sit here and say that he's a better player than Mays. I can't really remember many good things sharpton has done. Can't remember any bad things either.

One needs to be on the field to remember good things or bad. It seems as if one looks at Sharpton sideways and he gets hurt.

Some of y'all think Schaub is fragile, but Sharpton seems to be the definition of fragile.

To me it's like saying Andre Luck is better than Schaub. History doesn't support it, but the feel is going forward, you're better off with the young'n.

Other than that big hit on Schaub, I don't remember seeing many plays from Mays that was much different than what we get from Sharpton. Granted, like '76 I've only gone back a couple of years, but if what I've seen in the last two years is indicative of the play we're getting from Mays.... it's a marginal improvement at best.

I'm not really a fan of the comparison because Luck just played a whole consecutive season. He's fresh on our minds. When I say I can't remember sharpton, I'm not saying that for effect. I literally can't remember him.

But I do understand what you're saying. As far as the film watching, I'm not going there. Some people look one way in some systems then look another way in others. I have not gone back and watched mays and I'm not going to. But I know what type of player he is and I'm glad he's playing for us. I'll leave it there.

Just wanted to add I saw Mays at practice on Friday knock the hell out of Davis causing an fumble.

If it was in a game it would have been in a highlight reel

The only "Davis" I can think of on our roster is Ja'Gared Davis......another ILB.
Is there another one I'm missing? Either way, I don't know that I like hearing any one of our players are getting the hell knocked out of by anyone on their own team.

From the tweets from today's practice, it sounds like the Mays signing lit a fire under Sharpton.

I took it as that Sharpton being a Hurricane implied something about him or his ability. Not sure what that would be.

Yeah now that i think about it, a guy at the practice said it was "Davis" not sure why i just agreed with him. It was prob woods as he was the one taking the snaps with the first strings.

And i want the guys trying to prove themselves to knock the hell out of each other. If they all just play nice during practice then we would have a lot of talent sitting at home or on the practice squad.

Also it was Veterans day off on friday
