Re: Mason to Ravens

[QUOTE][he couldn't get 3rd/4th and 1, he couldn't return well, couldn't pass protect, and wasn't anything special as far as coverage teams. It's no surprise we kept cartwright over him, and there's no use keeping a 4th RB if he's worthless on special teams./QUOTE]

Yes I'm a Mason Bandwagoner....so help me with what Rock does? He can't pass block either, couldn't get a 3rd/4th and 1, and is worthless at RB. He does more running around the back field then running up field. Hell he got caught more in the back field during preseason then Mason. He had one good run. About the only thing he can do is run kick offs. WOW. He's a special teamer. One position. We should have let him go also. Betts can do his job as well as back up RB.

Hell, Betts is one dementional. He is back up RB. If this team was so concerned about getting younger they would have kept Mason and got rid of Rock. I guess when your job has only been to be a kick returner for what close to 10 yrs then I guess you better be good at the one thing your supposed to do. I certainly hope nothing happens to Portis this yr cause if we have to depend on Rock as back up we will start seeing the Texas two step behind the line and the fumbles he's known for when he was given the chance to fill in.

Re: Mason to Ravens

McMullen has some good video during his stay with us so he might make a practice squad somewhere.

That doesn't mean jack shit! I will be very surprised if he doesn't land with another team, even if it happens to be on the squad, for starters.

Just because 'some' reporter/announcer states his/her opinion it is his last chance means something to you?

You can't believe have the shit you read or hear to begin with. It like the weather man he's right how often? 50/50...? on a good week

Mcmullen has been in the league too long to be placed on the practice squad.

you either don't remember rock playing, are WAY over exaggerating mason's talent level, or are smoking something.

last time rock really played RB (2005) he had 200 yards, 2 TDs, and a 7.4 ypc average... damn that's bad :P

last time betts played RB he had a 1,000 yard season.

i can't wait to toss those two for someone who can't even break an NFL roster and has shown nothing worth mentioning against NFL starters.

seriously, this is the preseason mccullough is a pro-bowler, lumsden is going to have 1,000 yards, look look! the coach talked good about him thing all over again.

where'd all the anthony mix hype go? that's what i thought. call me when he has a 100 yard game. until then there's absolutely no basis to say he's better than the guys we got.

btw, rock had a 7.9ypc average this preseason with 6 catches and 0 fumbles (compared to mason's 4.8ypc and 1 fumble lost), so wtf were you watching?

Cartwright just got named one of the team captains (for special teams). This may or may not mean a thing, but to me it seems that the team has made a commitment to him this season.

Do me a favour and take out the 79yrd run he had and then review the numbers. He only had one great run the whole preseason. I'll admit he's one of the best kick returners.

Perhaps I smoked something through all the yrs, even though I can't remember what it was, LOL, but I remember a lot of people talking about and seeing how Rock likes to run East/West behind the line and lose yardage. Betts will put the ball on the ground atleast once at the most inopportune time possibly causing us the game. Portis has been the only shinning light. Why do you think none of our coach's seemed to make either the featured back? Oh coach's raved about both then got let down during game situations. Look we had Allen yrs ago. Then had to pick up Portis.

Re: Mason to Ravens

Here's Rocks stats. If I remember correctly he gets the ball and again dances in the back field...makes one good run....fumbles....and is taken out of the game as a RB. 2003 was his best yr and I can't remember why? I believe that was a Spurrier yr who raved about Rock. LOL.

Re: Mason to Ravens

I'll admit Rock's probably not as bad as I'm making him out to be but not as good as your making him out to be. He's somewhere in between. Yes he probably could fill in in a pinch. A couple of runs while some one is getting looked at is fine, but I wouldn't depend on him for a whole yr. If you look at his 2005 yr, his only other great yr, he was #2 RB behind Betts due to Portis's injury.

I guess I'm just babbling. LOL. He's a good #2. but so would Mason have been.

And your basing that on what? His showing in pre-season. Or his time on the practice squad last season?

How can you think for a minute the guy would be a #2 when you have zero body of NFL regular season work to base that on?

Re: Mason to Ravens

I think we should sign him back of the Ravens PS. For this reason. If Portis or Betts get hurt this year. What would we do? Say if Portis gets hurt. God forbid and Betts isn't running that well.. we would be S.O.L. What if Betts got hurt? Who would spell Portis? Are we that comfortable with Rock as the RB that comes in to spell Portis? or Betts? Just throwing itout there. Rock is excellent on special teams..Its funny its like Masons weaknesses is Rocks strengths and Mason strengths are Rocks weaknesses. Think we should have kept him and cut Tryon. IMO.
