    Penn State: Does "Fanhood" blind?

    apparently joe pa didnt know exactly what happened. he went to his superior to ask what needed to be done just like any employee at any job would've done

    to say he was required to do more is all based on morality and not legality

    fwiw sandusky has not been convicted of any crimes and has not admitted to any wrong doing.....you cannot fire someone in good faith without knowing all the details

    if a company is willing to fire employees without knowing all the facts that shows people that no matter how long you've been a member of an organization and no matter how many great things you've done.....a negative allegation is more than enough to not support you in any way whatsoever and completely drop you from affiliation you have with said organization

    regardless....joe pa deserved and earned the benefit of the doubt over his countless years of service to penn state university.....at least until all the facts were known

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    I like the Derek Wolfe pick. Here's what I've been hoping for...
    Round 2: T DJ Fluker (If he comes out)
    Round 3: LB Donta Hightower
    Round 4: DE/DT Jared Crick (Derek Wolfe works for me too)
    Round 4: TE Coby Fleener (The assumed pick for Bush)
    Round 5: S Robert Lester (Should fall after torn ACL)
    Round 6: RB/WR/KR/PR Chris Rainey (Wanted to draft him for a couple of years to replace Bush)
    Round 7: WR Quinton Patton (Assuming he comes out. Could be a gem.)

    Picking up a pass rush tweener sounds good to me too. A Vinny Curry-type in the middle rounds.

    Saints First Round Picks > FAIL!

    This is a great post! My friend and I often laugh about drafting of our two franchises. Mine (Saints) are awful and his (Vikings) are really good. They have picked up some really good guys over the years.

    I almost totally concur with everything you have posted in this entry. You have to be critical in all honesty. Looking specifically at the 'Brees era' I think there have been some questionable picks.

    A lot of people call Reggie a bust. I'm not comfortable with that. I think he offered a lot to the Saints, changed the way the offence was programmed. His biggest problem was that he couldn't really offer what a traditional RB could. Sometimes you just wanted him to go north and south and between the tackles and I always felt he struggled with that. Let's be honest, what Sproles has offered in 12 games far outweighs what Reggie ever gave us.

    Meachem. I like him a lot. Decent WR but he's not a first rounder is he? At the end of the day, the truth is that someone like Brees only needs someone who can run a half decent route with some pace and he'll find him.

    Sedrick Ellis. I think he's an 'ok' DT but he doesn't make any big plays or give me massive confidence that he can change a game. We need him on D simply because we do not have anything else. Would look at getting him some premium support or replacing him if necessary very soon indeed.

    Malcolm Jenkins. I like the comment on him 'hitting a ceiling' but I actually like Jenkins. He's shown great versatility and at times he's shown some real big play potential. There have been too many times where I have seen a big play absorbed because our corners 'didn't get safety support' which is disappointing but he's still learning and I'm not uncomfortable with what he is doing.

    Patrick Robinson. Awful First season. Truly awful HOWEVER he is probably one of the players I have thought was most improved this season. Totally different player. Yeah he's not perfect. He's given up some stupid yardage and sometimes looks to jump routes that aren't even happening but I'm reserving judgement.

    Cameron Jordan. Feel sorry judging him so quickly but when you're a first rounder, people expect something soon from you. He has just not really done anything has he? At no point do I ever think 'Wow this kid is getting some pressure on that QB'. Many times, I wonder if he's even on the field? He needs to improve quickly and his next season is very important. If he doesn't step up, he could be in trouble of busting pretty quick.

    Ingram. I am a fan of Ingram. He is getting far too much criticism. His first half of the season was 'ok' but not stellar. However he has improved in recent weeks and I am loving how he compliments the running game. People are comparing him to Chris Ivory but I think he is different. How he fits in with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles is superb. He's been gaining more and more yards, showed he can receive and offers yet another dynamic. I think he could be very impressive. The problem is, everyone is comparing him to Demarco Murray already. That kid is having one hell of an introduction but that's a ridiculous comparison.

    So my advice to the Saints Draft Team is to look at some of the franchises who do it better, and steal their notes!

    Glad to see you back at it with the draft prospects. We need to find a DE/LB tweener in the middle rounds that can help us rush the passer so that we don't have to jailbreak blitz leaving our corners at a disadvantage.

    Thousands of Penn State students rally in defense of Paterno


    It gets worse...
    Quote:
    Lamp posts were tipped over and broken on Beaver Avenue, part of the campus business district, where students were met by police and pepper spray. A television truck was overturned, and students rushed the university's administration building, "Old Main," a couple of blocks away.
    Students chanted "We Are Penn State," "We want Joe" and "One more game" and yelled Paterno's name as they rushed the building, where a half-dozen police officers waited on the steps, preventing the mob from going inside.
