Nick Mangold is still out there available. We should sign him now. Not to start but mentor Bodine and come in if an injury occurs...


I would sign him to start immediately.

Hmmmm...Maybe we will AFTER May 9th so it doesn't count in the Comp pick formula (which will somehow still screw us out of a 3rd round comp pick)...

Somehow i doubt he's on their target list at all. I don't think they want to disrupt Bodine, and i don't know if Mangold is willing to walk into a backup situation.


idk, I think there is actually a decent chance that it does happen:

1.) "Homestate" thing, similar to AJ Hawk.
2.) We've already worked him out
3.) Everyone but Paul Alexander probably knows we need to do something now before it's too late and there's no one available...

He was also cut, so he doesn't affect comp picks. Should have signed him months ago. Our oline us funny. I like the players for their potential individually, but I do not trust them as a group. A true veteran center would go a long way to me feeling better.

If Faneca is in thru training camp, how can the staff spin that Bodine should be the starter week one?

Just look at what Mack did for the Falcons, there's so few good centres about and they clearly make a difference. I have no idea how no one has signed him.

No details yet, but John Ross (NFL combine 40 yard dash record holder) and the Cincinnati Reds Billy Hamilton (the fastest man in baseball) are going to have a race for charity.

Someone posted this in another thread, and i forgot to respond.

If it's a 40, Ross is going to win pretty easy. If it's a timed race around bases or something, Hamilton would win. Maybe they should do both?

I don't know, Hamilton has posted home to first times (90 feet, 30 yards) in under 3.4 seconds, and that includes hitting the ball and dropping the bat.

Not so fast on the around the bases. Ross is gazelle-like in and out of cuts, fast through routes, and has probably played baseball at some point in his life. That's not to suggest Hamilton won't win, but we aren't talking about a straight-line only runner (track sprinter). The only true advantage Ross has is in the 40 because I would assume Hamilton never ran track, as it would conflict with the high school baseball season.

I assume Hamilton would run a sub 4.4, as that 3.4 time would suggest. The difference between 4.4 and 4.22 is huge. The difference between 4.3 and 4.22 is huge.

I really only said that Hamilton probably loses that is because Ross trained for the 40. The biggest factor in that run is the start. Getting off the line quick is an art those guys train for in the underwear olympics.

The only true advantage Ross has is in the 40 because I would assume Hamilton never ran track, as it would conflict with the high school baseball season.

Running routes =/= taking the optimum path around the bases. One of the things that separates Hamilton from his other fast peers is that he rounds the bases in a way to maintain speed but not increase the overall distance too much.

Again, just like with the 40, we're probably talking a difference of fractions of a second. But i think Hamilton has an edge there, even if Ross is faster overall.

You guys do know Marvin put the kibosh on the proposed race, don't you? Panthers have a guy who ran a 9.93 hundred meters in their camp who also said he'd like to race Ross. PFT calls him the fastest man to ever play in the NFL, that is if he ever plays in the NFL.

he did that last week (before the conversation on this even started). It will happen in the off-season and raise some $$$ for local charities.

Doesnt shock me they shut it down right now. It would be like Chad vs. the Horse back in the day.
