Skins Re-sign the Rock

I'm glad to see we have re-signed Rock. He might not be the high profile signing but is a steady contributer to both special teams and offense.

I was hoping we would. I've always liked Rock. And the fact that he was a 6th round pick in '02 makes it even better.

I like him, but in a "Little Engine that Could" kind of way.

And when I say Little Engine, I mean the type of Little Engine that would run each and every one of us over like we were nothing.

Great! He's a good special teamer and he provides us with nice depth at RB.

Re: Skins Re-sign the Rock

He always seems like the first person down there on kickoff. I don't know if we've talked about this, but Thrash was so damn good on special teams last year. He made a lot of plays pinning people deep.

I agree Malcolm.... Thrash is evil on teams!

And Sellers, even though he was drawing penalties he was driving people away from him.

Re: Skins Re-sign the Rock

I like Sellers. He just has to stop with the penalties. I know he's "balls to the wall" but tone it down just a touch. A few of those hurt us pretty bad.

More overhyped deadweight. We can resign marginal players but when it comes to giving Smoot a decent contract we couldn't pull the trigger. How logical.

Re: Skins Re-sign the Rock

You know the more I look at the off season, special teams has quietly become a real strength on our team heading into next season. Good signings so far and if Pac man comes on board he can compete with Morton on returns. Is Hall healthy? Not sure but I like what I see on special teams overall. Any thoughts?

We offered Smoot a "decent contract". We offered him a very fair contract actually, but he got more $$$ elsewhere. For once we didn't overpay somebody.

As for Rock being "overhyped": Huh? Since when has Rock ever been hyped at all? I don't understand what possible problem you could have with re-signing a long time skin who has been a solid special teams player and gives us some depth at RB/FB. It's not like the guy is going to get a $5 million signing bonus or something. We've gotten everything we could have asked for out of a 6th round draft pick and then some over the years, so what's the problem here?

Who overhyped Rock? I would really like to know.

Do you ever post anything logical?
