  • Does not bode well for their opinion of Chris Carson's health, if it bodes anything at all.

  • Why not hang a few of these off the goal posts and call in Lacey?

    Beast. I guarantee 1100 yards and 10 TD's. :2thumbs:

  • Practice squad move. Pope hasn't seen the field during the 2018 season. The return of J.D. McKissic keeps getting kicked down the road. So maybe they are revisiting a familiar and similar style alternative.

  • Just speaks to how unselfish Pope is. This only resets his countdown clock until he goes to Canton. What a guy.

  • That shows that they are getting worried about RB depth. Carson is apparently lame...but they still got horses in the barn...Davis...Penny...Prosise... there's the problem...Penny and Prosise together can't replace Carson. So as of right now they have Davis as a 3 down back if necessary . Not sure about Mckissic when he returns.

    Post of the day. Seriously. I feel you. The Pope love was unwavering!! The legend of Pope paled the legend of Kasen in comparison. He cemented his spot in .net lore that preseason.

  • The stupidity of the people that forgot why we needed Pope originally astounds me.
    (Sorry stupidity is too strong a word but something akin to willful ignorance. Because everytime this guy comes up in any context on any team, people do this silly dance about him forgetting how stupid releasing him turned out to be. Oh yeah, and because of that decision we are still stuck with Procise...yay)

    It is almost like they forgot the reason we needed him was a returner. As if they overlooked the fact we ended up stuck with Earl Thomas and Sherman returning punts out there.

    (Which at the time I estimated cost us 1-2 games because of poor field position repeatedly)

    Or that we were going back into the season with a RB that had been injured. Sure the coaching staff believed he would be healthy. But I figured they either were not smart enough to figure it out or they were just blowing sunshine up our tails. Sure enough, Rawls was promptly injured.

    So instead we kept Procise and Collins. Collins was admittedly a decent back elsewhere but he was not quick enough to hit the hole here. He wasn't going to work out and he didn't. Procise had some upside, but again - the point of keeping Pope was we needed a returner.

    It actually ended up screwing us over not keeping him.-

  • I like this move, not only is Pope a good RB, he is a excellent returnner on special teams.

  • Yeah, let's get mad about a practice squad guy, and somehow equate that to Penny being a bust 8 games in to his first season. :?
