If the Meebo bar bothers you, go to the far right hand side of the bar and click the hide button.

Not a fan of the Meebo stuff but you have to monetize giving away your product for free. Rather have advertising than paywalls.

The WR drafted out of Michigan State may be an "pleasant surprise", but I wonder if we could hang the "unpleasant surprise" handle on the other WR taken in the Draft out of Ohio State ? That's what I'm sensing here ?

Maybe he's not a "pleasant surprise" because he's living up to what they expected? I think if he was disappointing at this point, Kubiak would say something to the effect that, "He's a good kid, but he needs some work and we'll get him there by the start of the season."??

Interesting...

The Seattle Seahawks apparently went a little too far in their offseason workouts. Now, they’re going to lose two of them.

In a joint statement by the NFL and the NFLPA it was announced the Seahawks will forfeit two of their 10 OTA practice days for violating offseason workout rules. Specifically, the Seahawks had contact during some of their work, a clear no-no in the work rules.

“The NFL Management Council and NFL Players Association have determined that the Seattle Seahawks violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement’s offseason workout rules on the prohibition of live contact during one of the club’s organized team activity days (“OTA days”).

As a result, the Seahawks will forfeit two of their scheduled OTA practices (June 6 and 7) as well as an additional offseason workout day on Friday, June 8. Seahawks’ players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled days.

You can fully understand why the players would run through hell for him. His a great speaker and seems very genuine. I still think he gives them a yell behind close doors but doesn't allow it to spill out to the public.
I'm definitely a kubiack guy, I was one of the few who didn't want him gone a year ago

Correct. And Kris Brown was our team's NFLPA rep...and he denied it/covered it up. i.e. "Nothing to see here." Kris sold him down the river, which was an obvious decision...siding with Kubiak and the "team" over a lone dissenter.

It caused a stink. The guy said we were violating OTA rules, showed video IIRC, and the guy eventually faded away.

Ha, whatever, Mike Martin can suck a big bag full of donkey parts (and as a Titan, probably will) just because everyone else fell in love with him doesn't mean I have to!!!

You know, I happened to peg a few players that the Texans actually selected.

Here's my Wednesday report.

Nothing bad happened as far as anyone knows. I hate news breaking days because those are usually bad.

Jordan Black (aka I65) He was 300+ lbs of crappy football player. He then move on to Jacksonville where he continued to suck, I think he's out of the league now.

Default Re: OTA thread

Trying to get actual football stories at OTAs is hard. Because there's a scrum of media trying to do it and nobody really wants to answer the questions you have. Or people are more interested in gotcha stuff, and I have no interest in that.

Oh, and I can take video, but if I do, NFL rules only allow me to keep it at the Chron site for 24 hours which isn't worth editing it and usually nobody wants to say much of anything and they are hot and sweaty and just want to get in the AC.

So on the way to the scrum, I've been asking players for pictures for fans, to use for avatars and the like because well, someone asked me if they were okay with using my Fangupo picture for an avatar, and I've sorta figured what the hell. This is today's which would make for lovely photoshopping.

DE Antonio Smith
(on what he’s seen from the younger players during OTAs) “They are on fire. (Gary Kubiak) took the helmets off of them today and they’re still knocking each other out. I think we’re going to have a fiery bunch of rookies. These boys are ready to play. I ain’t seen nothing like it since I’ve been in the League. They’re pumping each other up. They’re yelling, they’re cheering. They’re on point.”

I believe it was Dan Stevenson and Jordan Black. Stevenson took video.
