The 15-7-0 has something like a .12 blood pecan pie level

Posted on 12 November 2012 by Glenn Clark

As always, this week’s 15-7-0 is brought to you by Roofing By Elite. Visit them at roofingbyelite.com. We make 15 observations about football that are ELITE, 7 that are “not so ELITE” and one “zero” who deserves to sleep on the roof from outside of football.

(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens game analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)

Here we go.

“The Elite 15″…

1. Stop dancing around it. A freshman who wasn’t in the Top 5 a week ago is now your frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy.

Not a joke. Geno Smith and Matt Barkley have been done for weeks…no one is excited about Collin Klein…and Kenjon Barner played at midnight the other night. Meanwhile Johnny Football was throwing touchdowns even on plays where he fumbled…

Hey Nick Saban-where are you in the polls now???

Elsewhere in the SEC, Auburn fans are looking forward to when coach Gene Chizik gets “Dooley-ed”…

2. So as it turns out, AJ Green was absolutely accurate.

He said he thought the Giants’ defense had some holes. He was right…

And does Eli Manning think he plays for the Jets???

3. Everyone in the Broncos-Panthers game was doing “the Superman”…except Cam Newton.

But you know, no one more than Von Miller…

I mean…why wouldn’t Cam have hit the Superman after this gem?

Remember the time Trindon Holliday scored a touchdown but never actually got the ball in the endzone?

Here’s Von Miller wiggling…

4. At Oregon, the backups to the backups can run 4.4 in the forty and could beat most Pac-12 teams.

Am I supposed to be MF-ing the guy in this circle wearing black and white, too?

Elsewhere in the Pac-12…Marqise Lee!

5. The Texas wishbone-throwback-throw again-whatever else it was play was the absolute best of the weekend.

Darrell Royal doesn’t mean a thing to me, but I do know this is completely freaking kickass…

The Reality Check Week 10 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 07 November 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Kansas City Chiefs (32)

Getting rid of Stanford Routt will probably solve everything, though.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (31)

I have to come up with eight more weeks of commentary to make about them.

30. St. Louis Rams (29)

They really have three wins?

29. Tennessee Titans (26)

They’re better than that, aren’t they?

28. Carolina Panthers (30)

I THINK they’re on the uptick?

27. Buffalo Bills (27)

Played the Texans better than the Ravens did.

26. Cleveland Browns (25)

But they’ve got Phil Dawson.

25. New York Jets (24)

Has any team ever been less excited to come back from a bye week?

24. Oakland Raiders (23)

It’s a good time to see them here.

23. Arizona Cardinals (19)

I’ve got nothing.

22. Washington Redskins (18)

At least they have their throwback uniforms.

21. Philadelphia Eagles (17)

Firing Juan Castillo totally solved their O-Line.

20. Cincinnati Bengals (20)

I left them alone for keeping things competitive against the Broncos. I’m giving them too much credit.

19. Dallas Cowboys (15)

Jerry Jones should be locked out of a number of rooms at this point.

18. San Diego Chargers (28)

I knocked them down too far. I’ll probably do it again.

17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (22)

DOUG MARTIN DOUG MARTIN DOUG MARTIN DOUG MARTIN DOUG MARTIN DOUG MARTIN.

The Reality Check Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 30 October 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Kansas City Chiefs (32)

They’re in primetime this week because no one in the NFL wants to help lift the spirits of hurricane victims.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (31)

They weren’t as bad as we expected them to be in Green Bay, I just don’t think they’re worthy of moving up.

30. Carolina Panthers (29)

I’ll default to PFT’s Darin Gantt for this one…

29. St. Louis Rams (24)

“We welcome the New England Patriots to London, representing the NFL. We also welcome the St. Louis Rams, representing nothing.”

28. San Diego Chargers (22)

Norv Turner has naked pictures of everyone everywhere. He must.

27. Buffalo Bills (25)

Mario Williams is optimistic about his wrist, but not about his team’s chances of winning games.

26. Tennessee Titans (23)

You take it week by week with this crew.

25. Cleveland Browns (30)

I don’t this is a “good” team welcoming Baltimore to town, but I do think they’re somehow “better.” Probably.

24. New York Jets (19)

I’ve had a gut feeling about them all along.

23. Oakland Raiders (28)

I don’t really believe it though. They beat the Jaguars and Chiefs in the last two weeks.

22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (27)

Well…they looked really good on Thursday night.

21. New Orleans Saints (17)

Joe Vitt’s return made a whole lot of no difference.

20. Cincinnati Bengals (20)

But they just BARELY sneaked past “bye.”

19. Arizona Cardinals (16)

They’ll be in the bottom four by the end of the season.

18. Washington Redskins (15)

Maybe the Shanahans will have Robert Griffin III line up on defense next.

17. Philadelphia Eagles (12)

But I’m sure starting Nick Foles would solve everything.

The Reality Check Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 24 October 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Kansas City Chiefs (32)

Yuck.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (31)

Yuck again.

30. Cleveland Browns (30)

You can almost assume their game against the Ravens next week is going to be close somehow.

29. Carolina Panthers (29)

Maybe we should have seen this coming.

28. Oakland Raiders (28)

Beat a bad team. Barely. At home. After the bad team’s players got hurt.

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (26)

I’m all for them staying in creamsicle though.

26. Indianapolis Colts (27)

No one would remember they’re 3-3.

25. Buffalo Bills (22)

Shawne Merriman is back! Shawne Merriman isn’t any good!

24. St. Louis Rams (23)

Lots of teams lose to the Packers.

23. Tennessee Titans (25)

Well if Chris Johnson is going to run like that…

22. San Diego Chargers (17)

Haven’t beaten anyone good, try to cheat.

21. Detroit Lions (16)

Maybe no one told them they still had Calvin Johnson this season.

20. Cincinnati Bengals (18)

Always doing very Cincinnati Bengals-y things.

19. New York Jets (20)

I give them a slight nod for keeping things close in Foxborough, but I still don’t think they’re very good.

18. Miami Dolphins (21)

Surprise, surprise.

17. New Orleans Saints (24)

I’m PROBABLY giving them too much credit, but they have Drew Brees.

The Reality Check Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 17 October 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Kansas City Chiefs (31)

It was only a matter of time.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (30)

I STILL think they find a way into the bottom spot.

30. Cleveland Browns (32)

It must be a proud moment for whoever is actually going to still be around next year.

29. Carolina Panthers (27)

So…Ron Rivera thinks he knows what the problem is? I guess it will just be fixed tomorrow…

28. Oakland Raiders (26)

Perhaps Carson Palmer can start practicing tackling…

27. Indianapolis Colts (24)

I don’t understand. Should we have seen this coming?

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28)

Calm down, they were playing the Chiefs. Everyone blows out the Chiefs, right?

25. Tennessee Titans (29)

We can’t thank you enough for that, Titans.

24. New Orleans Saints (21)

Market correction. I still think they’re on the way up.

23. St. Louis Rams (20)

Wait…Brandon Gibson?

22. Buffalo Bills (25)

I didn’t see that coming.

21. Miami Dolphins (23)

Best Dolphins quarterback since…Cleo Lemon, I guess?

20. New York Jets (22)

If they beat the Patriots…

19. Dallas Cowboys (16)

I probably dropped them too far. I don’t feel bad.

18. Cincinnati Bengals (14)

You can’t do that against the Cleveland Browns.

17. San Diego Chargers (13)

But at least it was hilarious.

The Reality Check Week 6 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 10 October 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Cleveland Browns (32)

But at least the folks in Cleveland have absolutely nothing else going for them.

31. Kansas City Chiefs (27)

They don’t have a very good quarterback, they don’t have a very good coach. They still nearly beat the Ravens.

30. Jacksonville Jaguars (30)

What do you think the Jags’ elimination number is?

29. Tennessee Titans (23)

Would they really listen to trade offers for Chris Johnson?

28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (26)

But technically in second place.

27. Carolina Panthers (24)

Just like we all none of us saw coming.

26. Oakland Raiders (25)

They DID still beat the Steelers though.

25. Buffalo Bills (20)

I hate myself for ever giving them the benefit of the doubt.

24. Indianapolis Colts (31)

The whole “I’m pulling like crazy for Chuck Pagano” thing kinda outweighs the whole “I really despise Indianapolis” thing.

23. Miami Dolphins (29)

Kinda hard not to buy into Ryan Tannehill, isn’t it?

22. New York Jets (19)

Kinda hard to buy into ANYTHING about them, isn’t it?

21. New Orleans Saints (28)

The highest ranking a 1-4 team could possibly have.

20. St. Louis Rams (22)

I get a funny feeling that without Danny Amendola it will be hard to stay there.

19. Detroit Lions (21)

They’ll start winning soon, right?

18. Washington Redskins (16)

And Mike Shanahan still thinks the option is a good idea.

17. Seattle Seahawks (18)

Everyone in the NFC West is over .500.

“The Reality Check” Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 03 October 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Cleveland Browns (32)

I like what I see from Weeden & Richardson. You need more good players to win though.

31. Indianapolis Colts (30)

I still can’t believe they lost to Jacksonville at home.

30. Jacksonville Jaguars (29)

I’m convinced they’ll ultimately be #32.

29. Miami Dolphins (31)

It’s a shame they couldn’t make that effort from Ryan Tannehill stand up.

28. New Orleans Saints (28)

They showed a little bit in Green Bay…wins are coming.

27. Kansas City Chiefs (25)

This doesn’t mean the Ravens will just coast Sunday.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (24)

Not much to offer defensively on the Redskins’ final drive.

25. Oakland Raiders (22)

Defense is a MAJOR issue.

24. Carolina Panthers (23)

They’re better than this. They’ll improve, but it might not be enough.

23. Tennessee Titans (21)

In the short term, perhaps they’re better off with Matt Hasselbeck.

22. St. Louis Rams (26)

Now with pesky Los Angeles rumors!

21. Detroit Lions (18)

Just an absolute mess. This could bury them.

20. Buffalo Bills (19)

But Scott Chandler is a nice target.

19. New York Jets (14)

I’ve heard the words “you know who” a lot this week.

18. Seattle Seahawks (17)

You can’t follow up a win over the Packers with a loss to the Rams.

17. Dallas Cowboys (16)

They’re not as bad as they looked Monday night. At least I don’t think so.

“The Reality Check” Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 26 September 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Cleveland Browns (32)

The only thing I’m certain about in the NFL is that the Browns have been the worst team thus far.

31. Miami Dolphins (31)

But if Dan Carpenter could make a kick they wouldn’t be here.

30. Indianapolis Colts (26)

If you’re going to win a few games you’re probably going to have to beat the Jaguars at home.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars (31)

In my heart of hearts, I still think they’re worse than the Browns. But as a reminder, the Ravens really liked Cecil Shorts III.

28. New Orleans Saints (17)

I knew it would be a struggle. NO ONE knew it would be this much of a struggle.

27. Washington Redskins (21)

You REALLY think it’s a good idea to keep letting RGIII get hit like that, Kyle Shanahan?

26. St. Louis Rams (24)

So…if Jay Cutler stinks and you lose to him, that means?

25. Kansas City Chiefs (30)

They’re not going to go winless. That’s a start.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (22)

Every time you think they might be making progress…

23. Carolina Panthers (19)

Is the league figuring Cam Newton out a bit in year two?

22. Oakland Raiders (29)

That was a damn gutty victory.

21. Tennessee Titans (25)

They’ll need to be able to win a few without so many miracles.

20. Minnesota Vikings (27)

That was a really impressive performance. Not a whole lot more you can say.

19. Buffalo Bills (20)

A win over the Browns is a win, just unlikely to be a win that will make me give you a whole lot of credit.

18. Detroit Lions (12)

But at least they have quarterback issues!

17. Seattle Seahawks (23)

As Drew Forrester says, they’re 2-1*!

“The Reality Check” Week 2 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 12 September 2012 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s rankings…

32. Miami Dolphins (Last Week: 28)

Perhaps it’s time to work on changing snap counts

31. Indianapolis Colts (31)

Andrew Luck didn’t look terrible, though.

30. Cleveland Browns (32)

Pat Shurmur can’t wait too long for math lessons.

29. Buffalo Bills (16)

What a disaster. It can’t be as bad as it looked…can it?

28. Jacksonville Jaguars (26)

Nearly stole a road win. I can vision quite a few close calls this season.

27. Seattle Seahawks (27)

You can’t lose to Kevin Kolb and improve.

26. St. Louis Rams (25)

They got hosed by timeout mismanagement. They’re still lacking targets for Bradford.

25. Oakland Raiders (21)

I think we understand more why guys like Morgan Cox and Nick Sundberg have played through injury.

24. Carolina Panthers (17)

They ARE still capable of running the football, right?

23. Minnesota Vikings (24)

I guess we have our answers about Adrian Peterson…

22. Arizona Cardinals (29)

The.whole.quarterback.thing.

21. Tennessee Titans (20)

The Patriots will make a lot of teams look bad.

20. Kansas City Chiefs (15)

I thought they were better defensively.

19. Cincinnati Bengals (9)

They aren’t this bad. They just got their ass kicked.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (22)

It wasn’t an eternity ago that they were a team on the rise.

17. Washington Redskins (30)

I’m not all in yet, but it’s hard to not be impressed.

Panthers sign former Morgan TE Bryant

Posted on 12 June 2012 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, Md. – Former Morgan State tight end Lamont Bryant has been signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Carolina Panthers and will take part in Carolina’s minicamp that begins today.
The 6-5, 225-pound Bryant started 11 games in 2012 and ranked as the team’s leading receiver with 21 receptions (371 yards) and two TDs. He capped the season by being selected to the All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference First-Team.
Bryant’s stock rose on draft boards with a standout performance at the Morgan State Pro Day held in March. Bryant measured in at 6’5, 225, had an 80 1/4″ wingspan, ran the 40 in 4.45 and put up 19 reps on bench. He also registered a 10’3″ broad jump, a ridiculous 43″ vertical jump, and ran the short shuttle in 4.38.
In 2010, he recorded five catches for 55 yards (11.0 avg) in eight games. In ’09, he caught 18 passes for 251 yards (13.9-yard average) and two touchdowns on his way to first-team all-conference honors in 10 games.
The Newport News, Va., native was moved from quarterback to tight end in ’08 and saw action in five games on special teams, where he blocked two punts.
The last MSU tight end to enter the NFL was Visanthe Shiancoe who was drafted in the third round (91st overall) in the 2003 NFL Draft by the New York Giants and currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings.
