"Oh thank God. Thank you for taking the time out for this meeting Mr. Shapiro.

I want - no, NEED your boy on the squad. And I'm willing to come up off however much needed to get there. I've already decided on the player I'm cutting to make the roster spot and will make that announcement before any signings that may or may not take place, but I wanna get a number we can agree on first and foremost.

Will 3yrs | $8MM work out for him?"

"Before I begin, I'd like to take the moment to address a very serious matter. As I'm sure all of you are aware, that RAT BASTAR-"

GM Pendergrass quickly composes himself.

"-... My former 3rd round punter apparently has bought the team's mascot - He's still the mascot, with the team or not goddammit - and apparently has faxed the office a list of demands if I want Gregor back. Namely, the demand that I rehire him. Well, Mr. Nelms. I know you watchin'. I know you're listenin' wherever the fuck you are. So I want you to get real close to the tv so you can hear every-single-mutha-fuckin'-word I'm about to say.

Fuck. You.

Fuck you. Fuck your hopes. Fuck your dreams. Fuck ya mama. Fuck ya daddy. Fuck who you roll with. Fuck any and everybody that loves you. Fuck what you goin through and fuck what you stand for. How DARE your punkass have the temerity to try and blackmail your trash ass back onto the squad. You think you can do this to ME? You think you gon' try and get one over on ME? Nah, it doesn't work like that. We in Queen City, pimpin'. We don't negotiate with would-be kidnappers and jackers.

But what I WILL offer is something for other people since you thought you could try and get back on the team the shady way.

What I'm offering is double what I paid for to obtain Gregor to anyone OTHER than Mr. Nelms, out of my own pocket, to see Gregor found and returned safely to myself or to the league offices. And Mr. Nelms better pray that somebody doesn't find him before I do. Otherwise? I see him anywhere in Charlotte or Louisville, I'm parking my size 16EE Hypersweeps right between his lungs and colon.

GM Pendergrass hadn't shouted. He hadn't ranted and raved. Every word he spoke was calm, despite how furious he clearly is. He allowed his statement to marinate for a few moments, before continuing on.

1. Discuss your first game of the season. The good, the bad, the ugly.

"Simply put, we got blown back. There were flashes of what I see - what I preach about whenever I see this squad in action, but the Arctic Foxes managed to keep us contained and once they got on a roll, we couldn't catch up. The team took this hard because this was a chance to get in the jaw of a team in a new arena in front of all their fans, not just for bragging rights but to establish the tone for our season, and we came up short."

2. Talk about the news surrounding your team this week.

"...Fuck Nelms and everybody that loves 'em. Next Question."

3. Was there a pleasant or unpleasant surprise that you didn't expect from your team in the individual performance category?

"I'll... have to get back to y'all on that one. Not to say that I don't have shit from the game from a few guys that stood out. I had a bit that I liked and we went out swinging, but there's a lot of film I wanna look at with the team so we can see what we did right, what we did wrong, and how we're about to come up for the big payback next week.

4. Talk about your week 2 opponent and what you need to do to win this week.

"We have a highly motivated Miami squad coming onto our field this week and we're not looking to go down 0-2, especially with our first home game of the season. We're gonna need to keep the pressure on Offense, while making them scratch, fight and claw for every single point they're tryna put on the board on defense. We have a few adjustments we need to make, but I see us being able to outgun them and scrape out a hard-fought win."

"...Yeah, not my finest hour. But I'm not copping any pleas for it.

What are we looking at this week, coach? How's Hallquist's wrist?"

We're going to blitz the hell out of Sullivan, make him prove he can still scramble in the pocket, and then we're going to work against the soft spots in their zone for the pass game.

"Bet. We'll run with the starters for most of the game. Let's lock-in for the week and make this week a step in the right direction."

"Was honestly waiting til the press left to watch replays of that fight. I always thought Football players didn't have hands, but cotDAMN they were throwing out there!

*Ahem*

...So, what do you think we should do to try and improve on things? We're not BAD on offense, but we keep getting beat on defense and getting blown back by almost 20 isn't a good look."

Neither is skipping the press conference to watch youtube clips of a bunch of idiots fighting on sacred ground, but yeah, the defense is getting roughed up which is pissing me off. 

We're weak at corner and DE, the corners are all young up and comers outside of Neal, but they aren't ready, and our DE's are soft after we got rid of Coffey and Lilley.  Those are the big issues.

GM PENDERGRASS GIVES A SMALL SHRUG AND A GRIN

"They were calling for me to be fined over a few words. At least they didn't have to put up with my mouth this week."

THE GRIN IS GONE AS QUICKLY AS IT COMES AS HE SIGHS

"Yeah, I'll try to figure out something to get us right at both spots. Shit, I've got an entire team's worth of RBs. Maybe somebody needs to up their run game and might need a hand..."

We have a lot of attractive pieces, its never fun to lose talent, but sometimes its needed to bring in other talent and support your weaknesses. 

The alternative is to keep taking it on the chin and try to bust ass to develop these guys.

“We’ll figure shit out. If it comes down to it, I got a few offers lined up and waiting. But let’s see why we can get out of them this week before we make any final decisions and shit.”
