I looked and the only 20 available is #20 I think #39 is also available.
20 is retired. 32 is a good number but hank owns that as of now.
That's Gino's number!
The lowest available number, assuming no current players are cut before TC, is #38.
Whatever he chooses, he'll probably switch after final cutdowns.
He might be able to buy 22 from Asante.
he better wear a number like 22 (buy off Samuel), 32, 30, 31, 26 (buy off Wilson)...if he wears something like 38, 39, 43 or some random number I'll be pissed! When you look tight, you play tight!
So explain to me how wearing a certain number makes you look "tight".
:rofl: sounds like Archives is a T.O. groupie.
I'm still trying to figure out why 31 is cool and 38 is "just some random number".
Anything but 29 or 39. I hate numbers that end in 9. Don't be 19 CJ while we're on it.
As a former #19, I think numbers that end in 9 are totally bad-ass. Eric Dickerson thought so too.
Didn't Starks wear 23 last year? I guess that was given to Mitchell or someone?
Give him #24, then we can all grap old Law jerseys cheap. The namepl,ates are easy to remove. It worked on my old Katzenmoyer one. lol
For the love of all that is good and holy, please please please don't let "lomo" catch on as a name for Maroney.
NO KIDDING. Reminds me too much of "SloMo" Maurice Clarette.
there was an article today that said his nickname is "Kool-Aid". I hope he takes a number thats unique. Hes a slick outside runner so it should be in the 20s, I think 23 or 25 would look cool though.
I think he's really fond of 22 so expect him to throw some dough Samuel's way.
That usually works if it's a bench player. I would be shocked if an established NFL player, and two year starter, vacates his number to accomodate a hotshot rookie.
Samuel wore 22 in SB's and stuff. Don't hold your breath waiting for him to give it up.
how about "lomar"? or "lomaah"?
BTW #39 was sam bam cunningham's number. show a little respect here.
maybe he'll take #9, a number with good medicine.
it has to be between 20-49
i hope its 21,22,23,24,25,26 or 32
21-Gay..1 full year of playing really..sat out most of last year
22- Samuel.. likely wont give it up
23- Eric Warfield..he can still go back to his KC # 44 i believe
24- Mel Mitchell..new ST player..can talk to him and possibly work out a deal
25- Hawkins..possible he gives it up but i dont know
26- Wilson..likely wont give up
32- Poteat..he might be nice and as a #5 or worse CB..he might take Maroney's money for it
Allbeef Heath has 44.
I really don't see the difference. Are some numerals inherently cool, and others aren't? We, as fans, are hoping he chooses a certain number? I've never heard of this phenomenon before. Was everybody pushing for Mankins and Hobbs to wear a certain number last year, and I don't remember?
Yes, anything but a number that ends in 9. It just irritates me so much... First thing I do in Madden franchises in switch people's numbers who have that and whenever I do reps of anything in working out I make sure I don't end on a rep ending in 9.
By the way... Is this a phobia??
pro sports numerology, according to holy writ
yeah, no question, xome #s are inherently cool, some are uncool, and some are thoroughly bad karma. a dose of patriot numerology:
#13--i can only remember seeing one nfl player wear that number, a clevelend browns QB named frank ryan. he was a good QB, too, numerous probowls, but of course no championships. after nfl he got a Ph.D. and is probably still working as a rocket scientist or teaching at caltech (seriously).
#11--bad medicine for patriots QBs. i first saw the number on the jersey of one "Champaign" Tony Eason, who took our team to the 1986 SB. Tony was later described by his starting LG, John Hawg Hannah, as a guy "who oughta be wearing a skirt" (no sh!t).
several years later, upon learining that much-heralded rookie QB Drew Bledsoe had chosen #11, many of us patriots suckers just knew, somehow, that things weren't gonna come out right with him.
#s 20, 39, 56, 59, 73, 81, 85, 86 -- all worn by great patriot players. #73 is hannah's number. i seem to recall that the # has never actually been retired. i DO remember that when it was issued to some undistinguished player (bob cryder?) a few years after hannah's retirement cryder was booed every time he set foot on the field. soon after chnaged his number.
and especially 84. darryl stingley's number. were i a patriot player i'd never accept that as my number. am amazed that ben watson has it on. some truly bad karma associated with that number.
so yeah, there is some meaning associated with certain numbers.
Really?? That's just a tad odd. I mean I can understand having a favorite number, but I don't think I've ever heard of a hated number (except for like 13, 666, 867530-Niiiiieeeine, etc.) Do you know the root of this aversion of yours?
That's my favorite / lucky number. Try Kurt Warner, and our former beloved Ken Walter just off the top of my head.
your favorite number?
we are talking about the same ken walter, yes?
yes i do remember now, warner did pretty good with that #. nfl mvp once, or twice?
would you recommend it to a QB just entering the league?
He's a ROOKIE, not some established verteran coming in! He isn't just going to walk up to some player and ask for their number. No - his only meaningful job will to play FOOTALL, have his dreads shaved into a mohawk and carry equipment in practice! If I was his coach, I'd ASSIGN him whatever number I damn please, not what he wants! As with all rookies, he'll be going from the class of the NCAA to the depths of the NFL. Once he steps onto the practice fields with well-established veterans, all of his rookie hype is vaporized and he will WORK to earn respect, so maybe that ONE DAY he can ask another player for a number. This is the NFL! I could care less how great he was in college!
Also, his name will not be 'Lo-Mo.' It won't even be Laurence Maroney. It won't even be 'rook.' It will be whatever number he'll be wearing. That's it, because as far as I'm concerned, he has yet to do ANYTHING in the NFL yet.
okay so when Clinton Portis came into league as a Bronco..had 26..then went to Washington where a more experienced guy had the # and he paid him to trade #.
some players dont really have a meaning to # and if he does..then he'll ask some players if they would accept some extra cash or something to acquire.
