Rod Woodson's 49er Camp Observation "Taylor Mays is

Unread postby SoulDawg74 » Sat Jun 19, 2010 6:02 am

"Gonna be "SPECIAL"

Doom on All You Mutha effers who out thought this issue.

He's now getting the correct coaching , and no less than a 17 year NFL veteran HOFamer singled him out as a player to set your dial on.

The only consolation we as Browns fans net for by passing on this physical Beast .

The inbred didn't stick him back there to plaque us for the next decade ala Rapein -Burglar.

Oh Yeah.

The Ward pick still sucks Donkey balls .

This is surprising. I can't believe Woodson said that. I really expected him to say "Taylor Mays isn't anything special and I think he was drafted too high."

Case closed, I guess. I guess all of the naysayers have been proven completely wrong.

I didn't see any mention of the word special in this interview:

http://www.csnbayarea.com/06/10/10/Youn ... eedID=5936

But I did provide a link:

Woodson said it is going to take time for Mays to make the adjustment to the NFL. He suggested the public, and media, show patience with Mays.

"I think it's going to take a couple years," Woodson said. "It's still a process. I think what people have to do with all players, including Taylor (Mays), is slow down and let the guy be taught. Until then, let the guy be a rookie. I got eaten up as a rookie. That's just part of being a player."


Christ, if you look hard enough there's someone saying something about everyone. That way they can remind everybody that they got one right some day (never to discuss the hundreds they didn't).

Sure.

Take enough blind swings and you'll eventually hit something. Then you can say, "I hit him with my eyes closed", while neglecting to point out the 400 times you swung and missed. ;-) ;) :wink:

SD:

MYn comments came from Woodsons comments on NFL Network, he was working with the DB's as Mikes guest.

Mays was then interviewed by Eisen and told about the special comments and glowing praise of woodson.

I maintained all along this kid wasn't coached right.and the scouting reports were nearsighted bias.



Its relevant because we passed on him for an injury prone cohort half his size and speed, when we were in dire need of a difference maker at safety .

OK, but why are you presenting it as if we have some kind of answer now. What Rod Woodson did or didn't say about 2 days of Taylor Mays practices doesn't bring you any closer to vindication. So why the "I told you so" attitude?

SD:

Just can't stand the fact that when it comes down to making the right choices this team
has consistantly gone left when they should have gone right.

Couch instead of Mcnabb

Winslow instead of Rape in burglar

William Green instaed of Clinton portis or even worse ed reed.

Jeff Fein instead of Steinbach.

Dennis northsuck instead of a corpse.

Trading up for Quinn instead of Troy Smith in the fifth

Edwards instead of trading down and netting Merriman or Ware and multiple picks.

The Wimp in lieu of Haloti Ngata

Keeping Quinn and Anderson instead of the Sanchize.

Ward instead of Mays when we could easily of had both .

Rod Woodson confirmed my suspicions Mays just needed coached up , and was one of those guys who was gonna be a better pro than a Collegian.

He's wearing out the phones with his DC and Singletary much like Colt Mccoy is doing here to
invalidate his stock drop .

Not saying the slight would have been as heart felt if he had been drafted by us , or our coaches astute enough to fan the flames of his thirst for revenge , butt if I as a Seattle receiver , I'd be checking on my life insurance policy before both those games.

We shall soon see the difference between a game changing physical freak of nature and our cookie cutter coaches favorite, that is if he can ever become healthy enough to play this year..


Left instead of right, and the beat goes on.

I pull this stunt and u diss me from Cortland to Salem. Butt I see u workin.


My take: this is where Id channel u. In heckgren u either trust or call caca. Cause it bigger n dis, dig? TJ v Mays = symptom not desease, riiiiiight?

Said that, similar concerns. Coac Mays up and or use kid rite and phreak may be keek da sneek. F the shit ur getting on this. Keep questioning authority.


Still don't understand tj over mays. Sadly, my draft day acumen has trumped browns too many years, heckgren or no.


Show me.

Not 1 rational reason in Spril to TJ over mays

JB is telling Soul Dawg that had JB posted the same thing about a given player that Soul Dawg would have given him hell all day and night over it.

But JB believes Soul Dawg could be right. Or, at the very least, that the Browns taking Ward over Mays is also puzzling to JB. That maybe the Browns would have been better off taking a gifted athlete and educating him as to the finer points of safety play in the NFL. If you're going to have to educate a player you may as well spend your time on an athlete as gifted as special as Mays as opposed to an oft-injured, run supporting saftey like ward.

If the coaching is successful then Mays become a special talent.

JB then encourages Soul Dawg to continue to voice his opinion and to challenge the Browns deep thinkers while not letting posters who think he is full of crap to bother him.

JB also admits he has been wrong himself many times, regardless of which regime or player selection he was addressing.

Good call. Not to mention it'd be ridiculous for me to believe JB would admit he was wrong. He once thought he was wrong, but he was mistaken about that. :lmfao: :nanner:

We all knew that Taylor Mays was gonna be special, real special and the media and fans were laughing all damn night over Cleveland not drafting him when they had the chance. We knew they were out of their damn minds. But I ain't got no time for this shit and for you fools so I'm back to the squared circle to stomp the crap outt'a some pencil necks like you back there in Cleveland.

Ding ding ding....

I fully understand that I could be dead wrong in the end, but I have been on record here for a LONG time saying that Taylor mays was just another Roy Williams at best.

It's worth noting that people were at one time excited about Williams as an NFL player, so I'll be holding my final judgment on his NFL trajectory for several years, even if he starts with a bang.

Also worth noting was that this "special" talent was passed up by the coach who knew the most about him. And he was passed on for a safety. That is at a minimum worth more than a couple passing comments by Woodson.

Former players make statements about new ones all the time, and they are by and large incorrect. That's why they are not employed as draft consultants.

The notion that former players are inherently good at instantly judging the NFL trajectory of all new players of the same position is dubious at best.

Soul Dawg, you're calling all of us out because Rod Woodson thought Mays looked good in practice, and thought he might be good.

Given an inch, you'll take anything a mile to make it mean more than it does. And you think WE out-thought this issue?

Apparently if a TV pundit (and ex-NFL player) says something good about a rookie in practice, that proves the rookie is great.

If Mays has 12 tackles in his first preseason game against the second string offense, does that mean he'll have a spot on the pro bowl team?

SD:

I'm well aware that Carol Burnett did a Butch Davis and bypassed his own player .

Butt how many times are we gonna outthink ourselves.

The Wimp in lieu of Ngata .

William Green over Ed Reed or Clinton Portis .

Winslow over the Rapist.etc etc etc .

Since when has Cleveland been so good they can pass on a bonafide out of this world

Ok well first off--you quoted what I said, but replied to different posters other than me.

Second, hindsight is 20/20, isn't it? There were 48 chances for teams to pick him...did any teams not have a pick in the top 48? I don't remember, but it's probably that every team passed on him at least once.

Thirdly, I like how all of a sudden Mike Singletary is a genius. What if the Jacksonville had taken him? Or Carolina?

As for the "talent out of this world" thing--maybe because sometimes freak of nature athletes don't pan out well if they aren't great football players. I want football players, not just a dude who looks good in gym shorts. He has bad instincts, takes bad routes to the ball etc. etc.

Sweet, he can run really fast in a straight line without pads on...I don't care. He can run like that all he wants, but if it's not the best line to the football he'll be on the practice squad.

Given an inch, you'll take anything a mile to make it mean more than it does. And you think WE out-thought this issue?

Apparently if a TV pundit (and ex-NFL player) says something good about a rookie in practice, that proves the rookie is great.

If Mays has 12 tackles in his first preseason game against the second string offense, does that mean he'll have a spot on the pro bowl team?


SD:

I'm well aware that Carol Burnett did a Butch Davis and bypassed his own player .

Butt how many times are we gonna outthink ourselves.

The Wimp in lieu of Ngata .

William Green over Ed Reed or Clinton Portis .

Since when has Cleveland been so good they can pass on a bonafide out of this world

I'm down with your point on Football players over Courtney Brown pretty lady specimans,
However the Marines take boys and make men outta them everyday , so at what point don't
does coaching take the blame .

Singletary didn't out think it , he drafted a stud to make him better.

This team has had many an opportunity to shine and consistantly fucked up those opportunities,Myself JB and others called em out in real time more times than we liked.

It gives us no solace to watch the team pass off Players that could turn this thing
around to other teams so we Rail against the wind, even though that damnable Breeze
keeps blowing the piss back in our faces.

SD:

Chaun Thompson was drafted off a 0-11 team from tumbleweed U .

He had no football acumen , no acute social setting to handle the highlife and really
was nothing special physically.

Mays OTOH has played on the Worlds biggest stage for one of America;s high profile teams
while flashing an unparralled physical presence unsurpassed in his size to speed ratio.

The kid can deliver a blow , where as our safeties just blow,

Woodson was brought in to refine and tune up all the 49er DB's and show them
handed down secrets that seperated his play from the norm .

and surprise surprise surprise as Gomer Pile would say ,
Mays the proported slug who was supposedly uncoachable took the training
and excelled to the point of rare praise from the HOFamer himself.

In Singletary's World football is still a football.

Take the stud and make him better , nevermind drafting Rudy .

Get back to blowing Sanchez, at least that is based on what happened on Sundays.

All I'm saying is there's a reason why his senior year was so unproductive, that so many teams passed on him (some twice). It certainly wasn't his straight line speed or his size.

Until he (and Ward) plays, this conversation is fruitless. I don't give fuck one about what Rod Woodson thinks about some dude in shorts.

Perfect example of what I'm talking about .

The safe choir boy vs the bad boy.

I absolutely hated the choice of Brown over Arrington.

Dudes lack of intensity was death.

Deacon Jones and Bubba Smith spoiled all my views on that position.

SD:

Viekune threw up 35 reps at the combine , he has exceptional strength.

Dwayne Rudd had sub 4.5 speed which is exceptional.

Thompson is like the Ward pick , Butch panicked and picked him two rounds sooner than he
should have gone.

Chaun Thompson had 4.5 speed which is very good at around 245 lbs which is ideal
for a 43 backer butt small for a 34 .

He neither excelled in pass coverage or tackling except by accident
but mostly performed like a puppy running too fast on a linoleum floor taking himself out of plays , he was so stoopid i saw him tackle rottenburgers lineman in the pocket instead of the rapist and I have to say it was the dumbest play I ever saw in all my fuckin life.

Ward at least a player who performed on the high profile circuit, Thompson came off an 0-11 team and nobody butt Chauns mammy and Dave Campo thought he was a player .

They tried to duplicate the success ""Jimmay"" had picking guys like Haley and Leon Lett and Norton and others , but they weren't even close with that tool.

Kinda pointless to say "SEE! SEE! I TOLD YOU HE'D BE A STAR, AND THE BROWNS STILL SUCK BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO ME!"

Only two times I've really totally regretted the FO's decision making.

one was in '08 when they could have traded DA FOR A 1ST AND 3RD ROUND PICK. Pretty much us being able to give us a decent running back in the forms of either Mendenhall or Felix Jones at a time when Jamal Lewis was on his way to the glue factory.

Another is not picking Clay II. And even that's kinda "eh" to me, because Alex Mack has turned into a quality center.

other than that, it's kinda moot. either a guy works out or he doesn't. sometimes you can see it from a mile away, other times you can be completely shocked.
