Spartans in the NFL

Post by WhiteBoyHatcher on 2014-08-17, 22:45

Garbage time, but on Fox right now, Panthers vs. Chiefs. Denicos in (#55, playing WLB) and just made a nice tackle.

In on another tackle. Kid can play. He's gotta make a ST impact to make the squad. No idea what their numbers are, but if he can contribute on ST gotta think the coaching staff would notice him. He's been in for like 5 plays and made stops on 2 of them.

Hoyer isn't really helping himself, he should be the easy decision for the coaches. The longer it drags on, better for Johnny football.

That Browns game was a complete disaster for Hoyer. But Johnny didn't do much better and also flipped off the Redskins bench.

I actually tuned into that game with interest in a pre-season game for one of the first times ever. Now I don't know if I can stomach another Browns game.

Woah. Texans released Bullough. I'm sure they're trying to sneak him onto their PS, but everything I had read was that he was in a competition to start. He was nothing short of very good during the preseason. Very surprised at this.

More.

Glenn Winston released by 9ers. Had 19 carries for 113 yards in the preseason. Another PS candidate.

Patriots waived Worthy. Must still not be healthy.

Vickerson released by Broncos. Not really unexpected.

I fully expect Denicos to get waived. Maybe a shot at the PS.

No idea on Hoover or Isiah Lewis.

Sheesh, Giants cut Kellen Davis. That's what, his 3rd team? Gotta figure he doesn't get picked up by anybody soon, especially considering how TE-needy the Giants are.

Bad day for Spartans.

Don't freak out about the rookies. If they made it to final cuts they stand a pretty good chance at getting onto a practice squad. The only one that is really a surprise is Bullough but I'm sure the Texans will try to sneak him onto their PS.

I hope they don't make it, TBH.  Hope  somebody else snaps him up (hello, Denver) and makes them sorry.

Dan France and Tyler Hoover done today, too.

Yeah, I noticed he put that on his Twitter profile earlier but hadn't seen any confirmation. Awesome! I'm excited for this kid, I think he can play.

So can Max, obviously. (signed w/ Hou PS). Both will see time in the league imo.

Hoover signed with Indy PS. Winston got claimed by the Browns to their PS. Fowler and France also made PSs.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Wondered whatever happened to him, given that the Browns cut Ben Tate, and found these:

The tale of Cleveland Browns running back Glenn Winston

Not best pleased with the way it makes it sound that Coach D abandoned him -- he had many, many chances. He couldn't have had a better place to find "football family" than MSU.

Cleveland Browns' running back Glenn Winston

Didn't happen, apparently -- NFL.com shows he played in 3 games at the end of the season, started none, and didn't record a carry. Sounds like special teams stuff only.

The Indianapolis Colts today signed 10 players to reserve/future contracts including:  T-Tyler Hoover
Posted by coltsindianapolis on January 19, 2015 – 6:17 pm

Hoover, 6-7, 297 pounds, was signed to the Colts practice squad on December 17, 2014. He was originally signed by the team as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State on May 13, 2014. He was signed to the practice squad on September 1 and was released on September 2. He then spent time on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad before being released on September 30. Hoover played in 48 career games (23 starts) as a defensive end at Michigan State and recorded 93 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, six passes defensed, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. As a senior in 2013, he started 11 games and posted career highs in tackles for loss (4.5) and sacks (4.0). He was also named MSU’s Big Ten Sportsmanship Award recipient.

#Spartans FS Kurtis Drummond looks incredibly put together at 6-0.5 and 205. Great player, too. #Bucs should be interested.

Kiper also says he was surprised Calhoun stayed in school, but can improve from "late one, early two" to a top-15 next year.

Joe Rexrode ‏@joerexrode 54m54 minutes ago
Mel Kiper says Connor Cook "should be right there" next year. "He's got a chance to be the first or second quarterback off the board."

Mel Kiper Jr. teleconference: 4th round for Lippett. Taiwan Jones "mid-round type of guy." Drummond around 5th. Langford 5th-6th.

For Langford's sake I hope he doesn't go to the Lions. Would love to see one of our former players be a big time producer for one of the more elite teams.

Lippett at corner?

Lippett certainly has the size to be a receiver in the league at 6-foot-21/2 and 192 pounds, and his 65 catches for 1,198 yards and 11 TDs were proof that he could be productive. But in the pass-happy NFL, it's more important than ever to find guys who can defend 6-4 receivers, and Lippett's length makes him a candidate.

"Personally, I would flip Lippett over and make him a corner," NFL Network draft analyst Charles Davis said. "I wouldn't even hesitate. I just think with his length, the league is dying to get corners that can go out and match up with the monster receivers that are out there, and I think that that would be a way to distinguish himself a little bit. And personally, I think his upside is better over there than it is being another one of these receivers."

Davis couched his comment by saying Lippett can certainly be a good receiver, but after watching him play cornerback in Michigan State's Cotton Bowl win over Baylor, Davis thought it was a natural fit.
