The Purge of the Loudmouths

Avatar

The Purge of the Loudmouths 


Was just thinking about this last night, and all of our noisy guys from last year are gone:  

Schwartz
Gun
Delmas
Houston 
Burleson (though his expressiveness was overwhelmingly positive) 
Young 
Akers (JK) 
Ford (too soon?) 

Our squad is now lead by the "strong and silent' example of CJ and Coach Caldwell.  Interesting... 

Intentional or coincidental?
The winners sing, the losers curse;
Dance before the Lions' hearse!
Every night and every morn,
Some to misery are born.
Some are born to sweet delight;
Some are born to endless night.

Good point. Glad the circus left town.

No more fist pumpin', misalignment, "don't call me scared", pizza eating, "learn the effin' rules", headset  throwing, "Patrick Edwards is gonna be a star", clipboard kickin', "tell him to say that to my face", tooth aching bunch of fools! pirate

Raiola?

He picked up his play last year (what took him so long) but he does have a propensity to open his mouth.

That's a good exception - he does yap a lot.  Though his talking seems to be more through the media than on the field.  I also feel as though he tuned it down last year, though I may be wrong.

me too!  always preferred the barry / cj approach to the game.

that said, a team is going to have different personalities and it's healthy to have a mix.  but generally speaking, shut your trap and go play ball first..

i'm for results vs words.   think it will be good for this team going forward.

that said, i never recall houston having a big mouth at all.  he was pretty low key.  just got injured and lost his confidence.  also, gun is still here.  he had a loud mouth but he also tempered it with praise and i think he dished up both when they were well deserved.  i think players respected him for that which is partly why he's still on staff.

Re: The Purge of the Loudmouths 


I don't necessarily think people who run their mouth on the field is a bad thing, I mean those same people on other teams have resulted in several of our players self destructing resulting in costly penalties. Schwartz is gone because he was uncreative and looked like he had no idea what to do anymore. Delmas is gone because of his knee, Buerlson was old and kept getting hurt, Young was just plain nuts, Houston I don't remember as a loud mouth and Gun is still employed by the team I thought.

Enter Golden Tate. He will do enough talking for all of those guys.

At least we didn't trade for Josh Gordon. He's constantly calling for the smoke pass. So annoying.

I don't think it means anything.

The Super Bowl champs have a few guys that are always talking (Sherman, Thomas) and guys that are kind of quiet (Beast mode, Avril)

i confess i didn't know much about tate until we signed the guy but listening to him speak in interviews, he seems very level headed and confident.  i don't hear a lot of bs exiting his mouth.  i don't see any indecision or muddling.  he thinks before he speaks and says what needs to be said without any extra filler words or leaving any holes open to be taken incorrectly imho.  personally i really like this guy's attitude and the way he presents himself and thinks he strikes a nice balance between confidence and leadership we need.   i don't see the unwarranted cockiness others allude to.     again i can't say what he did elsewhere but he's my guy right now based on what i've heard from him.   hope he has a big ass season playing along calvin while bringing some excitement and energy that's a step up from what nate and everyone else suiting up along side cj ever offered

We got rid of CRog a long time ago...

I think it's more a matter of coincidence than a concerted effort.  Delmas was broken and the new staff didn't want that risk and putting a new system in with a guy who had to miss most of the practice time and they would have had to pay him way too much.  Burleson was just time to move out as well with a youth movement at WR and the staff wanting more TE action.  Gun's still here just in a different role and Kocurek was kept on who by all accounts is a very vocal coach.

Let me guess.  You aren't here for the Alcohol or Tobacco...

It doesn't. Pointless thread.

It does when your bark is bigger than your bite. A team is a reflection of it's head coach and ours was a cocky, smarter than everybody in the room, childish, fake tough guy of a coach.

I said it before the 2013 season and I'll say it again, Schwartz was steering the SS Ship of Fools on a collision course with the SS No accountability.

The Legion of Boom for all their character flaws?.. at least back it up. And boy do they ever. That's the difference.

I've always referred to those types of farts as silent but violent.

Re: The Purge of the Loudmouths 


Seems like some need to do some research on some of Tate's activities both on and off the field.

Here's some key words to Google

Tate + Donuts
Tate + Taunting
Tate + Wilson's wife
