Default Joe 'Idiot Cannonball' Mays dislocates DJ's elbow

Earlier this preseason, quite a few pointed out Mays wiffed on an RB in the hole and struck Dawkins instead. Last night, Mays slammed into DJ's back while DJ was making the tackle, freeing the RB to get another 5-7yrds and dislocating DJ's elbow. DJ is expected to miss 3-4weeks because of the scrub Mays.

Another major whiff came with 2min left in the 1st half. The RB took a release pass on the flat and turned up the sideline. Mays rumbled his way over and dove at the RB -- missing about 2yrds behind the RB. It wasn't even a juke by the RB or desperate attempt by Mays. It was a flat out 2yd whiff and would likely have been a tackle if Mays wasn't such an idiot. The RB got another 5-7yrds before being tackled.

What's a guy that's slower (both quicks and topspeed) than most DE and has the coverage/hand skills of a DT doing at MLB in a 4-3? What's a guy that whiffs so badly I wonder if he's cross eyed and regularly slams into and now injures his own teammates doing on an NFL roster? Most of all, who in their right mind would have him as a starting 4-3 MLB in the NFL? Cut his dumb az.

Mays is a back up at best and nasty Nate has been a little disappointing. I think we should have picked up Morisson.

Joe Mays destroys people. Occasionally he's going to blow up some friendlies.

I have to admit that "The Idiot Cannonball" is full of win.

This needs to be quoted, I can just hear the Boomhauer voice in my head saying this.

I haven't seen Mays 'destroy' anyone to date. He's usually the second or third Bronco to the play and if the play is right at him - he completely whiffs. If everyone stood still like tackling dummies and there was no play, just Mays running to a target, then I'm sure he could deliver a hit. But during games, we'd be better fielding 10 with him on the sideline.

His lack of contributions wouldn't be missed if he was riding pine and he wouldn't be able to harm his teammates. Better yet, cut his dumb az and let a backup that can at least make a tackle, move through trash or deflect a pass take his spot - Irving and Mohamed come to mind. Even if they're not fully ready, they're significantly better than Mays and his less aggressive equal, Haggan.

He hit the Seattle rb yesterday and drove him back about 5 yards. Last year he knock the shyt out of the kc te. Football is a violent sport and people are gonna get hurt. It happens, even in figure skating.

Man, if Mays would keep his eyes open those last two steps to the ball-carrier . . . .

Maybe he can be coached up.

Mays is winning his job and is a lot of fun to watch. The guy that accidentally got in his way has more apologists than Tebow does.
