El Guapo- You can't teach size

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

That's right, and that's why I went with Rod Smith, who's got 3 inches on Hyde and just 8 pounds short.  I think Smith would destroy all of these guys, and he'd do it with one punch.

This is the best poll 11W's ever done.

Do you?

Yes we have an excess of running backs....hopefully...most are unproven but for sure young talent.

I went with Boom Herron. You can't go on size alone and sometimes experience and physical maturity counts for more than a few inches here or there. I don't know what their cpmbat background is but I will go withthe tested warrior, in Herron. When are we going to get the same poll for bloggers? I am wondering if I could get a few to step into the cage with me. It would be great fun battling with my strengths instead of intillectual quips and verbal judo, in which I am slightly deficient. 

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Normally I would agree with you on Herron, but when the choice is between Boom and El Guapo, I'm going to go with El Guapo.

You'd have to be the ref. Would put my money on Priestas if it's combat sports we're talking about but I'd go DJ if things went to the street.

Joe is an Army vet, so there's that.

Also, Sarah once killed a guy with a trident.

Yes but who has the highest NCAA 2k12 rating. Inquiring minds must know.

Hopefully they won't test for P.E.D's,  right?

didn't someone, somewhere say something along the lines of  "it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog?"

seems familiar...

The only one that would truly surprise me is Hall.  I don't think he's going to be that guy who can take the game over.  We've seen Boom do iit in the past.  Berry has the kind of speed that basically every time he touches the ball he could break one for a huge TD run.  Hide and Smith have size and speed to burn.  If one of the others looks really good the first 5 games, Boom is going to find it hard to get a significant amount of carries, but if none of them really jump up and seize the spot, I can totally see Boom coming back and being the man. 

If no one has seized control of the spot by game 6, this team is in trouble too.  With an inexperienced QB, a so-so line, and green wide receivers, someone has to emerge early at the RB position or this could be a long year.

i wasn't being facetious with how i worded the question, i meant an actual Rage In The Cage match inside a literal cage

But would the players represent figurative cultural phenomenon, such as the Chinese economy and the Islamic spring? Because I'm pretty sure Jason said no political debates on here. He'll probably take it out on you in the cage match, and Irr is gonna let him do it.

lol see what happens when you comment and work?  I would take Carlos for sure in an actual cage match.  Hall would get destroyed, he weighs what, 80lbs?

I'm not even sure who I voted for...I saw the pretty nicknames and got blinded and clicked something.  Awesome

El Guapo is a great nickname. I sure hope it sticks.
