Schofield ready to contribute; the Konz is back

Notified that the team was cutting him as he began to take the field for the first day of Arizona’s training camp, you can’t blame new Seattle Seahawks’ edge rusher O’Brien Schofield for holding a little animosity for his former team.

Schofield was let go by Arizona after the team signed veteran pass rusher John Abraham last week. The Seahawks claimed Schofield off of waivers.

“It was a rough process,” Schofield said. “I definitely didn’t think that something like that would happen to me, but the fact that it did and I get picked up as soon as I did by a division rival, it makes me happy that I get a chance to see Arizona two times a year.”

At 6-3 and 242 pounds, Schofield can play both Leo and SAM linebacker, but will lineup at SAM linebacker to begin his time with Seattle. Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said that Schofield was a player Seattle considered for the 2010 draft, but the Cardinals snapped him up in the fourth round before the Seahawks could take him.

“This was one of the guys that we were trying to get in the draft,” Carroll said. “We had a place that we were going to pick him, but unfortunately for us, he went before that. So we’ve watched him play and he’s played against us.

“He’s very active; he’s a very versatile football player. He’s played outside backer and rushing third down. Again, in that role that we like. You know, all of the things that the Sam and the Will can do. We are really excited to get him on the team. Unfortunately, it took us a couple of years to get him.”

With Schofield, Bruce Irvin, Cliff Avril, Chris Clemons and Michael Bennett, along with the development of undrafted rookie free agent Benson Mayowa, the Seahawks have some depth at edge rusher when everyone is healthy.

Schofield, 26, said his main focus will be generating pass rush.

“Absolutely just getting after the passer, so a pass rusher first,” he said. “The drops aren’t as complicated as I had to do in the past so that’s even better. They really made it simple for the guys that they believe are rushers to have simple drops and not think too much and just be able to play fast.”

The return of Jameson Konz

The Seahawks announced this afternoon that the team released tight end Victor Marshall and signed linebacker/tight end Jameson Konz.

Marshall signed with Seattle as an undrafted rookie free agent out of British Columbia on May 13, 2013.

Konz was originally drafted by Seattle in the seventh round of the 2010 draft.

He spent 2010 on injured reserve (hip), and was released during final roster cuts in 2011, but signed to Seattle’s practice squad.

Originally brought in as a tight end, Konz switched to outside linebacker, and was signed to the active roster on Oct. 4. seeing action on special teams (10/9 at NYG), before being placed on injured reserve (k

Konz played in one game against the New York Giants, but suffered a serious knee injury and was placed on the injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

Konz was released by the Seahawks in September 2012.

Some tidbits
* Carroll said that tight end Darren Fells continues to improve, and has exceeded the team’s expectations so far in his transition from basketball to football.

“He’s doing well. Really surprisingly well,” Carroll said. ‘From not playing at all, I know (Quarterbacks coach) Carl Smith keeps saying ‘What if he would have played football?’ You know he’s never played before. He catches the ball nicely. He’s a great target, he’s tough, and everything’s ahead of him. It’s been an impressive start though.”

* Byron Maxwell had a nice interception during team drills today, and continues to make plays working with the second unit.

* Defensive tackle Jaye Howard and offensive tackle Alvin Bailey are two young players that showed up once again in practice today, the first one in full pads.

* Rookie receiver Chris Harper had a nice catch on a crossing route during team drills, and seems to be picking up the offense and playing at a faster tempo.

* The guard had a hard time blocking Tony McDaniel during one-on-one pass protection drills.

* J.R. Sweezy was back starting with the first unit at right guard today.

* Jordan Hill did a nice job of tipping a Brady Quinn pass at the line of scrimmage, and almost brought it in for an interception.

  1. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Thanks Eric.

    I’m very excited to see how Schofield does in the next few weeks.

  2. freedom_X says:

    Jameson Konz – one of my cult favorites. Sounds like he must be 100% healthy again if they resigned him?

  3. Was being sarcastic in my last post, but Konz does have a heck of an uphill battle for a spot, and being healthy is only a part of it. Been interested in hearing more about Fells, so it’s good to see him make an impact. Sounds like he can catch, but any word on his blocking skills?

  4. chuck_easton says:

    Harvin just tweeted he’s having surgery.

  5. seahawksteven777 says:

    Harvin is gonna have surgery. Not too surprising, even though I was optimistic.

  6. chuck_easton says:

    And he also tweeted that he will be back ‘next year better than ever’.

    Now I’m pissed.

    He could have played and chose not to.

  7. chuck_easton says:

    3 to 4 month recovery time

  8. chuck_easton says:

    Won’t be back until December if at all

  9. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Say it isn’t so Chuck.

  10. bbnate420 says:

    “Nobody was more anxious and excited about season then….but I will be back strong as ever..i appreciate all the love and prayers 12th man”

    That’s what Harvin tweeted about being back. Said nothing about next year. Average recovery time is actually 10-16 weeks. Probably back week 12 or 13 best case scenario.

  11. daveboling says:

    More pressure now on Tate and Baldwin, and also on Rice’s healthy return. Thoughts on the decision to get surgery: I don’t think anybody opts for hip surgery who doesn’t need it. I think Harvin’s good health is more of an issue next season and in subsequent seasons.

  12. MattandCindy says:

    I doubt the Seahawks as an Organization would let him “decide” to have surgery. He needs it.

  13. bbnate420 says:

    We don’t really know that he could’ve played. Those media reports aren’t fact. We should know what PC/JS think about him having surgery if he’s released in the off-season.

  14. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    funny how first reports say he didn’t have to have surgery then this.

    my problem with all this is he wasn’t hurt before the break so this was something did on his own.

  15. Gotta tune out the 49ers fans even more now, they’ll be howling with this news. Adds a bit more fuel to the fire for that first game with SF.

  16. GeorgiaHawk says:

    daveboling- So when do you think Harvin will be back at earliest this year?

  17. bbnate420 says:

    Why would it matter that he did this on his own? Everybody here lauds RW for working on his own. Can’t have your cake and eat it too.

  18. MattandCindy says:

    That’s what I’m wondering, hawkfan? If he was running full speed, pain free 1 week ago, and then started to feel something and told the coaches, what exactly did it? Now sit back at watch the copy/paste intellect that is so prevalent online.

  19. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Set back forsure, however Baldwin can more than hold his own imo.

  20. thursday says:

    The only that’s bugging me is the disparity between the Seahawks doctors supposedly telling him he could play and then this other guy saying he needs surgery. Idk why, it just is.

  21. bbnate420 says:

    Biting tongue…..

  22. So is there anything to report on Malcolm Smith? I’ve read next to nothing so far. How is his transition to SLB going? I’m starting to wonder if he’s a bit lost in the shuffle at this point as Pete seems to be stuffing SLB with a lot of comp right now.

  23. MattandCindy says:

    I’ve even seen someone post what Rice is having done today procedure wise, copied almost directly from WebMD and Wikipedia. You just have to trust the source of the material. There will be a lot of fools who say a lot about Harvins injury, but we should trust the Hawks and the coaches and doctors who know.

  24. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    just heard on nfl total access, “early report was accurate, he could play thru at 80% or have surgery and be back in nov/dec at 100%. now
    i would rather have him fresh and 100% for playoff run than now and miss the end. trying real hard to find a positive in this.

    if he misses the season thou i say cut losses at end of year and get rid of him so there is no more money out. i don’t have much patience for guys that are always hurt if he can’t stay on the field he can go elsewhere. which would me someone will get him cheap because he won’t get big money again.

  25. MattandCindy says:

    And look at Harvins tweet- when everything is goin good sometimes life throw u a curve ball… sorry to half to report that my injury will require surgery…
    He spelled half when he meant have. Does that mean a multi-million dollar athlete is probably stupid with a low IQ? Nope, but it depends on who you ask.

  26. thursday says:

    Ahh, that makes a little more sense then. I could see why a playmaker would not want to play at 80%. I guess we’ll see how it plays out. I would also prefer to have him back for a playoff run if that were possible.

  27. MattandCindy says:

    Imagine how mad we would be if it was Week 2 and he tries to cut and instead is crumpled on the ground screaming.

  28. Percy Harvin plays this game at a level that is hard to match in terms of his reckless abandon, and just all out effort. Honestly, I think he goes a little too hard for his own good at times. One of those guys that’s definitely got a screw loose, so if he’s not right at 100% to start the season then I say, yeah, opt for surgery.

    I know for some reason there’s Seahawks fans who don’t want to hear/read this, but this team is going to win w/out Harvin, and win a lot. Admittedly, I never really even wanted Harvin here, but he’s a ‘hawk now, and once he’s good to go he’ll make a big contribution to this team. Get well, Percy. God luck and good speed.

  29. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    nice link georgia , best part is those guys acknowledged that seattle is a very good team with or without harvin.

    best part is we may get to have a new receiver breakout that may not have even made the team.

    headline 2/2014 harvin wasn’t needed for hawks to win super bowl,lol

  30. bbnate420 says:

    Playing with an injured hip also makes him more susceptible to injury on the other side of his body due to overcompensating.

  31. MattandCindy says:

    Sekolah- God luck and good speed. Awesome, I love it.

  32. MnC that could very well be the case, or maybe he had a typo, autocorrect took over and his agent didn’t get a chance to edit his tweet before it hit the tubes…btw, who cares?

  33. GeorgiaHawk says:

    “He spelled half when he meant have. Does that mean a multi-million dollar athlete is probably stupid with a low IQ? Nope, but it depends on who you ask.”

    I would rather be a probably stupid multi-million dollar athlete with a low IQ than a smart ass Seahawks blogger (making peanuts) with a username identity problem.

    Just saying.

  34. RDPoulsbo says:

    I still doubt he’ll be home for the year. That would mean they need to cut up the bone like A-Roid. If that’s the case, the team doctor would certainly have seen it and the team wouldn’t have been telling reporters that he could play with that. We’ll hear more, but if it’s not the 10-16 week variety, the team doctor has a lot of explaining to do.

  35. “Sekolah- God luck and good speed. Awesome, I love it.”

    Right on. Yeah, I stole that quote. It’s been implanted in my brain since discovering it.

  36. bbnate420 says:

    Good lord, Cindy. Leave it out of future threads. Pretty telling that you can’t get over it. I’ll let people read your posts and determine your intelligence for themselves. It certainly wasn’t just one typo.

    I completely copied and pasted. I also linked the site so anyone could determine for themselves if it was credible. I am no expert on the treatment, but they seemed to know what they’re talking about. I used to be an EMT and am approx. 2 weeks away from being a Radiologic Technologist. I have medical knowledge. Cut and paste intellect is better than zero intellect if you ask me.

  37. MattandCindy says:

    Georgia, are you bi-polar, or bi-username? Because one second you say stop guys, c’mon….and the next you point things like that out and start problems. Are you okay?

  38. MattandCindy says:

    I didn’t say your name. Do you take everything you read personally?

  39. USS Harvin just set sail

  40. thursday says:

    Sando has an article up: http://t.co/WOtEay6JGQ

  41. GeorgiaHawk says:

    No offense but if you are looking for a sport to follow with regards to players being good at English and spelling then you have picked the wrong sport with football.

    Isn’t that a no-brainer?

  42. MattandCindy says:

    and “biting your tongue” brought it here. that’s YOU.

  43. MattandCindy says:

    Don’t tell me. I didn’t make a thing about speeleng and grammar.

  44. MattandCindy says:

    No yankita since this started. Weird.

  45. bbnate420 says:

    “Now sit back at watch the copy/paste intellect that is so prevalent online.”

    “I’ve even seen someone post what Rice is having done today procedure wise, copied almost directly from WebMD and Wikipedia. You just have to trust the source of the material. There will be a lot of fools who say a lot about Harvins injury, but we should trust the Hawks and the coaches and doctors who know.”

    “He spelled half when he meant have. Does that mean a multi-million dollar athlete is probably stupid with a low IQ? Nope, but it depends on who you ask.”

    Are you going to claim that you weren’t referring to me? That you didn’t try to drag the argument to future threads? You’re not clever. Completely transparent.

  46. Nothing a little self control wouldn’t fix

  47. MattandCindy says:

    Wow. You DO think everything is about you. That makes so much sense, natedogg, I mean bbnate420, I mean yankita, I mean ACIB, I mean Georgia. Did I miss anyone? How would you know, since pot causes memory problems.

  48. bbnate420 says:

    You posted this, “Now sit back at watch the copy/paste intellect that is so prevalent online.”

    Then I posted, “Biting tongue….. ”

    Again, you’re not clever. I don’t know why you try to lie when the evidence is obtained simply by scrolling up the page.

  49. GeorgiaHawk says:

    “Georgia, are you bi-polar, or bi-username?”

    Good example of projecting.

    Look, I have been trying to be nice however you really need to drop this Matt and Cindy thing if you ever want to get respect around here.

    I love my girlfriend very much however we just do not think alike. Especially when it comes to Football.

  50. bbnate420 says:

    Do the world a favor and step on an IED when you go back. You won’t be missed. You’ve done nothing but start spit since you’ve been back. But that makes sense since spit is all you have in your skull.

  51. MattandCindy says:

    Evidence is you saying, “Look. He means me.”???
    You should be a fake lawyer instead of a fake nurse.

  52. MattandCindy says:

    And weed smoking fake doctor brains is what you have in yours? I’ll take spit.

  53. GeorgiaHawk says:

    “No yankita since this started. Weird.”

    Perhaps because MattandCindy are here?

  54. “No yankita since this started. Weird.”

    Yeah, makes me wonder if there were any sharp objects around when he got the news about Harvin, or perhaps an 8th story window with a view.

  55. MattandCindy says:

    Georgia AND bbpotforbrains-

    You should make a duet album. It could be called “bi-polar butt-f**king” and you would be on the cover….doing that. Hold my hand little buddy, I’m coming in.

  56. MattandCindy says:

    No, Sekolah. BBNate has been busy with me, so it’s hard to log in and out that fast.

  57. MattandCindy says:

    bbnate says-
    Do the world a favor and step on an IED when you go back. You won’t be missed. You’ve done nothing but start spit since you’ve been back. But that makes sense since spit is all you have in your skull.

    And I’m the over reactor? He wants me DEAD because of WORDS ON A SCREEN. That’s pretty sensitive, even for a 7th grade girl.

  58. bbnate420 says:

    Good lord. You mentioned “copy and paste” intellect before I posted biting tongue. Not that biting tongue is offensive anyways. You could’ve claimed that you weren’t referring to me. but then you posted, “I’ve even seen someone post what Rice is having done today procedure wise, copied almost directly from WebMD and Wikipedia.” Who else posted that? Oh, no one. I don’t have to wonder who you were referring to.

    You’re just butt hurt because you know deep down that what I said about you is true. You can’t get over it. You must have enlisted after the army started taking high-functioning retarded people.

  59. MattandCindy says:

    And you save people’s lives…..while stoned. Sure little guy.

  60. teampararescue says:

    SI reports that Harvin will have surgery this Thursday. Oh well, guess you can’t miss what you never had.

  61. MattandCindy says:

    You would think I outed this guy to his alcoholic step dad who always knew he was gay. Oooooops. Did I just do that?

  62. bbnate420 says:

    I’m sorry to everyone else. I will try to restrain myself from responding to his nonsense anymore.

  63. Do the world a favor and step on an IED when you go back

    No that’s what I call over the line geez

  64. That’s a cold shot, MaC. Kinda funny, but I think nate’s got a little too much class to be posting/acting like yanker.

    bbnate is one of my favorite posters here. nate, you better not f***ing be yankinta. If you flipped the script on me like that I will hunt you down.

  65. bbnate420 says:

    Sekolah, anyone can believe what they want. I don’t post under any other handles. I used to be natedog years ago, but I couldn’t post anymore for some reason. The TNT support said I hadn’t been banned. I started a new account and it has worked ever since. Cindy is just copying my line. I was talking about Yanker being ACIB. I think there’s a lot of circumstantial evidence pointing to such.

  66. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I tried to be nice but MorkandMindy is determind to stir the pot.

    I am going to side with Nate. He held his tongue while you were throwing dung.
    From here on out you are just Cindy to me.
    Until Matt can grow some balls, or is allowed for his balls to escape from Cindy’s Femdom grasp.

    I’m done for today, and will probably be apologizing tomorrow.

  67. bbnate420 says:

    xcman, I suggest you go back a few threads and read through the whole thing before you judge. I left it a couple of threads back. He couldn’t because he believes what I said is true about himself and he doesn’t like it. I obviously don’t mean that he should literally die. I don’t know him personally, but I’d certainly bet that he’s a piece of garbage in real life.

  68. lol. just messing with ya, nate. Yeah, I’m starting to see what you’re saying about the ACIB connection. I thankfully didn’t have to read much of what he said, as I’ve been touch and go with this site (until recently) for years, but I trust your judgment on that.

  69. bbnate420 says:

    xcman, BTW, he started personally insulting me first. Just like when he told Georgia and someone else to keep their “dong holsters” shut for no good reason.

  70. They are really enameled with Konz – I have never seen it on the field so he must really bring it in practice. That said if they have shown sooo much faith in him growing maybe he will finally get it and be ready to contribute and make the team

  71. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    oh baby jeebus save us all,lmao lighten up guys. tomorrow will be a better day.

    here’s a question to allm who are the active receivers week one?

  72. RDPoulsbo says:

    A blog flame war? Seriously, what is everyone going to do? Caps-Lock each other to death?

    Konz ifs one of those freakish athletes that could probably play every position on the field. The problem is, he can’t any of them well. If he’s going to stick, he needs to stick to just 1.

  73. kinda miss ACIB’s logic and decorum around here(?)

  74. WiscCory says:

    bbnate and Georgia, don’t waste anymore time on ignorant people posting here. You two are valuable members of this blog. I read your comments, when they pertain to the Seahawks, because you are intelligent and passionate fans.

    Between the name calling and lack of class, combined with people like me that flag poor taste comments, it’s likely that the TNT staff will see that those type of immature kids aren’t able to comment here much longer.

    Let’s bring conversation back to the Seahawks.

  75. WiscCory says:

    FYI, It was implied on the radio that this is the procedure that Rice had…Regenokine procedure. Seems like some high profile athletes have tried this. There must be some credibility or level of success.

    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-08-23/sports/ct-spt-0822-mike-mulligan-chicago-bears–20120823_1_brian-urlacher-regenokine-therapy-toradol

  76. montanamike2 says:

    Wow bad news and the site erupts into chaos again. I think i’d rather have him undergo the surgery now so that we might possibly have him back for a playoff push. This is going to take the media pressure and turn it into something the Hawks can use for motivation, that we can’t win without Harvin. It’s Tate and Baldwin’s contract year, we’ve improved at nearly every position and we still have a dominant stadium that is every teams nightmare when the 12th man is roaring. RW getting dissed in front of Colin K. We are still going to be a force. I’m disappointed but we’re still a stacked team. The Whiners have Vernon Davis at WR! That’s thin.

  77. freedom_X says:

    Konz, when he was healthy, had the same physical ability as Bruce Irvin, and it looked like it in 2011 preseason. (3-4 sacks if I recall correctly.) But when he got his big chance, he blew out his knee and it seemed like he was nursing it in 2012 preseason (hence he got the chop.)

    Since they’ve always liked him, it makes sense to bring him back if he’s 100% healthy. It remains to be seen if players like him and Walter Thurmond are just unbelievably unlucky, or inherently fragile. But they certainly can use another pass rusher, which is what I assume they’ll use him for rather than as a TE.)

  78. bbnate420 says:

    WiscCory, I am going to try my best to ignore him from now on. The Regenokine procedure is really new. I don’t think there’s strong evidence that it works, YET. It has to be studied. Theoretically it seems like it would do some good, but that doesn’t mean that it definitely will. I think Kobe and A-Roid also had it done.

  79. Kingpear says:

    The Seahawks are a run first team. Sure, it sucks, but they will be ok. Besides, if they tank in 2013 they will get a low draft pick, and still have all these studs. This isn’t about a one year wonder, this is Win Forever!

    As for the flame war, in the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka, “Lighten up Francis!”

  80. Might not be what you meant but what you wrote- still think its over the line. And you sound like a toddler- he did it first!!

    Not saying what was said previously is right or wrong. We all get caught up in it every so often. So whatever – I just didn’t think it was ok to post

  81. edstang45 says:

    Sure the team will be ok without Harvin, But if he was a tough hardnosed guy who loved to play, it would not have been so easy to just stop practice and go into surgery without the passion to play and not lose time till absolutely the last straw. I know a couple of passionate Viking Fans and they said a long time ago this guy looks for reasons to not play. I’m worried he’s a pansey rich guy who plays for money and fame not for the pure love of it. we’ll see…. wonder what TJack thinks…..Torn Pec and play’d all season long in pain and he was involved in every snap. Harvin just stopped..after being healthy and poof snff snff surgery

  82. edstang45 says:

    mmmmm i’m pissed …seems the lil boy way out, he’s still gettiong millions

  83. rramstad says:

    I think the IED comment is way beyond the pale. I have no respect for bbnate420 at this point.

  84. Did Konz really have 3 to 4 sacks in the 2011 preseason? If so, that’s pretty encouraging, though even Nick Reed was a preseason sack monster.

  85. sluggo42 says:

    Exactly mmike,

    Better now and maybe back by playoffs. I’m totally pissed, but it’s over and crying wont help.

    Bnate, step above the curb, and let it go.

    Seriously guys, let it go…

  86. bbnate420 says:

    xcman, that’s fine. That’s your opinion. I don’t agree. Thus is life. You won’t always like what other people have to say. Being an adult is learning to live with that. I am no toddler. I just put a loudmouth that has done nothing but go off on poster after poster this last week in his place. I didn’t see you saying anything when he was telling people to keep their dong holsters shut because he didn’t like what they had to say. That certainly is not called for. Even if I don’t like what someone here has to say, I don’t tell them they can’t say it unless it is 100 % off-topic trolling. He has yet to apologize for anything, ever. That said, it would’ve been better to simply ignore him.

    rramstad, that’s your opinion. Thanks for letting me know. If you think I care about the respect of some anonymous person on the interwebs then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

  87. CDHawkFan says:

    Agree with xcman and rramstad, way, way over the line Nate. Its one thing to wish harm to someone, but to a Soldier to step on a IED? I read the back and forth and I don’t know how you can justify jumping to that level.

    I am surprised it hasn’t been removed as its obscene, abusive and off topic.

  88. bbnate420 says:

    It’s okay to wish someone harm, but another to say for a soldier to step on an IED? How does that make ANY sense? It’s okay for some people to be harmed but not others I guess. And as I said it wasn’t meant literally. I would imagine that you have all kinds of problems communicating with people if you take everything said as literal. That said, it’s harder for sarcasm and figurative speech to come across in print. I don’t wish him to die, but I think he’s at least been acting like a piece of garbage ever since he’s been back.

  89. bbnate420 says:

    I thought by saying do the world a favor before it that it was clear that it wasn’t meant completely literally. It’s akin to telling someone to take a long walk off of a short pier IMO. Regardless, you can feel free to think it was offensive. I don ‘t. That’s why we live in a free country. You don’t have to like what I say. It’s interesting to me that none of you have said spit about him continuously attacking people for more than a week straight.

    The only reason I bit my tongue for so long is that he says he’s a soldier. Do we know that he really is? No. And I made an innocuous comment about him doing something similar when he came on and insulted most of the people posting on the thread about being 7th grade girls with PMS. He then launched into his personal attacks. As he has consistently for more than a week. I got sick of it.

    I have attacked people occasionally on here unprovoked. I have then come back and apologized for it. And I’ve never done it day after day for more than a week.

  90. rramstad says:

    bbnate420 obviously we have a fundamental disconnect. I choose to believe that every single login has a human behind it. If you are going to write each and every one of us off as “some anonymous person” who you don’t care about, then you will be treated accordingly. Honestly, I think the ONLY thing that matters on the Internet is respect. It’s the currency of the Internet. If you treat each and every other person disdainfully, they will each treat you the same way.

    rramstad, I understand that there is a person behind every login, but you are all anonymous. I don’t really know any of you, and you don’t know me. I’d rather have your respect, but I’m not going to stay up nights because some anonymous person on the internet has lost all respect for me due to one thing I said. I can’t control that.

    I wasn’t writing everyone of you off. I am writing that certain person off. I don’t treat everyone disdainfully. I try to not try anyone disdainfully unless they deserve it IMO. If you think I started the personal attacks or don’t think that person deserved disdain, then I suggest you go back and read through the entire argument. It didn’t start on this thread. He couldn’t let it go and brought it here from another thread. It started a couple of threads back on the thread with 194 comments. He started off by insulting everyone on the thread. He then launched into me personally when he didn’t like that I respectfully called him out for it. Look at the whole story before you form an opinion.

    It’s been very unpleasant reading through this thread. Not the level that is usually on this site. I’m guessing we’re all old enough to know when to shut up and just let it go. Already enough crap on sportsblogs without adding to it.

  93. I think MattandCindy is acting like a world class asshole and getting away with it in the name of being a soldier in the US military.

    If you really did serve, god bless you and much respect.
    But you still don’t have carte blanche to act like a douchebag.

    I help people in my line of work too, but I don’t use it as a shield to act like a dick to everyone.

    Just my opinion, take it or leave it.

    Thanks, CCVI. You are the only one besides Georgia to say something about him. I could’ve ignored it after awhile. I wasn’t without some fault, but I got sick of his constant attacks the past week or so. And he never apologized for anything.

  95. No problem Nate. I got your back dude. And Georgia’s.
