I never realized both of their key drops have been vs Virginia Tech. Smith's had much great importance even though in the grand scheme of things, I'd say it worked out alright for us
Love the Malik Hooker choice for most interceptions! I think he is going to become a household name very quickly
Barrett would have been there in 2014 for sure and he probably would have had a good chance to win it if he didn't get hurt. So I think he has a good shot to be there this year
Anybody know if Damien Harris is starting for them yet? He was pegged to be the next big time running back, but I haven't heard much of him
Pryor drops everything in Madden, so no
Because you are looking at today's schedule which is already past their time slot. The next days have them just like normal. From what I understand, the Finebaum show is going on the AM version, no changes to the FM programming
That's good to know. I know people give them hell, but I like most of the guys at 97.1. Glad to see nobody is losing their job
As much as i'm sure Joey wants to play right now, I would be alright at this point waiting another year and not having to deal with these scrubs. Stuff like this is why i'm really dreading 2020 as far as being able to watch the NFL because I imagine there will be another lengthy holdout until the players make sure ownership cannot do things like this in the new CBA.
There is nothing like publicly issuing a statement about an ongoing negotiation on your Iphone Notes. Also I think its funny they are comparing the offer to previous Charger player offers as if they are a highly regarded organization that is known for paying their players. It's no wonder that no free agents or draft picks ever want to go to San Diego
He's gotta stay healthy
I think this gets overshadowed by Dontre's injuries sometimes but Samuel has had nagging injuries two years in a row that kept him from reaching his full potential. Here's to a full season of being injury free to them both
I just hope Urban doesn't try to run Barrett more to keep Weber healthy. I looked back at 2014 and was pretty shocked at how many times Barrett ran the ball: Rushing attempts of 24,14,16,20,14,17,20, and 15. That would be a heavy load even for a running back that is built to take those hits. I'm hoping we balance out the offense and start to have a great short to mid range passing attack utilizing the quick receivers and tight end.
We should all send Sammy Watkins a thank you letter for torching us in the bowl game. That was the icing on the cake that was a year of poor tackling and slow linebackers who couldn't cover the screen. The next year Meyer and company went with the rugby style tackling, found a guy willing to transform the linebacker role, and the rest is history
I think its going to be a very aggressive defense who is going to fly around and make a ton of huge plays, but also will make a few more mistakes. Should be a lot of fun
That is one sexy depth chart. I haven't heard anything mentioned about Corey Smith besides the fact that he is practicing. Seems like his starting spot isn't as sure as some people thought it would be.
I love that a good majority of his highlights are actual routes starting from the H-back role. We have never really had an H back come in that was already familiar with the role. Marshall was a QB and Wilson/Samuel were both primarily running backs in high school that had to learn the role brand new once they got here.
A hamstring injury for TG makes sense with his switch to WR. He admitted he wasn't going full speed last year, so this is really his first full year of trying to go full speed on every route and his legs are probably just not accustom to that. Hopefully next year he realizes the shape he needs to be in before summer camp starts so he can make it through a full camp healthy
Two years in a row missing summer camp with an injury. That would be one of the most frustrating things when you had a decent shot at getting some playing time
Ruining a kids announcement without coming right out and saying it. I'm sure he worked really hard to recruit him and probably just got the confirmation, but sometimes you've just gotta stay humble.
I have a great feeling about Rodjay Burns just because of how confident the staff was and how much they seemed to really want him. I think we will really start hearing his name next spring
When I think of athleticism, I think of someone who is capable of doing things physically that nobody else could, so I will say Ted Ginn Jr. We think we have speed now, but he was a different level than anyone. He would practically be standing still waiting for the ball to get to him because Troy couldn't throw it far enough and he would still be ahead of the defender by 5 yards. The crazy thing is that he is still one of the fastest players in the NFL when they tracked the guys top MPH
I heard today that Grimes has already notified his coaches which college he will be attending. I just hope they let him have his moment at his announcement unlike that douche that ruined the announcement of the of the Florida State kid
Phelps would have about a 35 inch reach advantage. The dude has arms longer than my legs
I remember all the hype leading up to his first game vs Buffalo and his first catch was a swing pass that he would have taken to the house except he got caught by his shoe string. He was so close to living up to the hype on his first touch.
3 weeks before the season starts and your head coach is fighting on twitter with a ESPN troll. A man is defined by the problems he reacts to I guess
Its been pretty easy to see the maturation of the guys with all the social media access we have now. Mike Thomas was putting in work all spring last year working with his own coaches and running routes on his own time. Same with Braxton Miller's return and also it seems Dontre has found that same determination this year. TG doesn't seem to be there yet (or he is just quiet about it) but hopefully he will soon.
