Why is this such a difficult task for folks to comprehend? Nike is on this kick of destroying long-lived traditions. As great as they are, they diabolical at subtly, killing traditional colors and adding shades of change.

Having said this, I do like the thicker black stripes on our helmets, and the black or smokey greay face mask will work.

But the playoff jerseys are where we should be until the end of the ages... amen.

I  think Braxton is an athletic beast, and love that he's a Buckeye. But there were some Ohio State QBs that never made me nervous (Smith, Germaine, Barrett) and there were some that did, especially with the pass. Braxton is one of the latter.

I just don't think he has ever felt good in the pocket.

How many years does a pro-Coach get to "get there" only to lose the first or second round every time?

I could see making the Conference Championship or SB frequently and losing and being kept around, but there is obviously something 'off' in Cincy that they are not addressing. I think letting Pryor go is a sign of this.

I'm not sure I buy the argument that Tyrelle isn't "pro-material' there are plenty of QB's who haven't been or aren't but are currently starting, or are in the two-deep. A man with the sheer talent that Pryor has should be kept around just for the heck or it, even if you have to do it at the league minimum.

I think the problem is that I'm not sure all NFL teams are up too or able to actually coach or teach. Some expect a QB to come into the league and produce day 1. And you'll find most of those teams are underperforming year in and year out. But they are good at making money because they know how to budget by cutting 'investments' loose. They stay afloat because they are not willing to spend the time and money on developing players.
