Bosa would be doing backflips (again) if he 'slipped' all the way to San Diego at 3. Not only would you land on a team that has had 2 losing seasons in the past 13 years, you'd live in San Diego - or possibly LA in a year. I'd take that anyday over the mess that is the Titans or the unspeakable burden of playing for the Browns.
Chargers are in SD for '16, but they have this year to decide if they're going to LA or not.
A more interesting side note would be if there needs to be a rule change regarding penalties by the goal line. If you're a DB and you get beat, why wouldn't you just mug the guy to prevent the TD? You're saving six points and losing a foot from the LOS. I wonder if they could implement a system where the penalty yardage gets added to the ensuing kickoff, or something like that.
National rankings aren't necessarily relevant if it's respected regionally. Most Ole Miss grads are going to get jobs in NOLA or Birmingham, so if they have a good reputation there that's all that really matters.
He made $34.6M in career earnings, won a ring, and retired in good health. I'm sure he's pretty happy with how everything turned out.
I've kinda thrown in the towel on the tournament hopes (I'm not being a pessimist, just realistic). So what I'm really looking for from here on out is growth from the younger guys, as next year is shaping up to be huge for us. I want to see few mistakes from Lyle, more scoring from Giddens, and less head-scratching-moments from Loving.
Reminded me of trying to listen to Dierdorf call games. "I'm not so sure you don't want to think about not punting it here"
By pretty much any metric, TO is either the second or third best WR of all time. He has to wait another year too.
The biggest issue isn't the players themselves, it's the self-important media members that vote on it (see: King, Peter).
I'll take "unfair expectations" for $400, Alex.
I also liked the Prius getaway car one. "I told you someone should stay in the car!"
I think you might be surprised. I remember them talking to a rookie a year or two back and he said his first NFL game was the biggest moment of his life (and I'm pretty sure he had won a ring or two at Bama). Ultimately when kids start playing pop warner they dream about playing in the NFL one day, not winning a NCG in college.
On the bright side, my drive in was way better than usual. There were apparently enough people hungover to lighten the traffic.
I don't mind Papa Johns - the key is to use the little single-serve cup o' fat that they put in the box. Dip a slice in there and you'll be happy (and filled with regret two hours later).
I've always thought that too, but never got around to complaining about it. It's odd that the font used to quote other sources is almost identical to what a comment with -10 DVs looks like.
Do you have a newsletter I could subscribe to? I'd like a different version of this every morning.
Kinda how I thought it would go. Nice to see progress from Lyle though.
Even if they started replacing pipes tomorrow, its gonna be a lonnnggg time before every tap is safe to drink out of. It's not like the bottled water goes bad.
We had two last year and it didn't really help. Kicking was definitely underwhelming: Neurenberger was 3/4 and Willoughby was 7/11. And we didn't make a single FG from 40 or longer all year.
We do have a ton of RS Juniors though - they get to participate if they graduate and are planning on leaving.
He redshirted. Medical waiver only comes into effect after your 5th year, when you basically point to one of your seasons and say "hey, I was hurt, that one shouldn't count". You don't take a "medical" season at the time it takes place.
He's not sure what position Harrison will play at Ohio State.
I love that he just wants good athletes and will figure out where to put them later. Doesn't matter if you're a QB, basketball player, offensive lineman, whatever. Just get your ass down here.
Nugent was drafted by the Jets. And even though I love the guy, picking a kicker in the second is inexcusable.
Whichever one picks us is by far the superior player, IMO.
I'd prefer to make the tournament, but even if we miss we have to look at the big picture. We're likely to lose absolutely no one from this year's team, for the first time I can ever remember. Most of the problems this year can be attributed to them being young. Next year they're going to be a force to be reckoned with.
