Who cares, the biggest mistake you can do as a fan is think you have some clue as what another person is thinking during this process. Yes Ann Arbor is the country compared th NJ, however Columbus itself is much nicer than NJ. I just really question your fanhood when you miss spell Archie Griffin in your bio as you claim to be such a big fan.
No, that's why you keep him... Teach him to be a WR, and in a pinch you have a QB familiar with DeFillipo's offense
I was unaware that OSU lost momentum, and obviously you've never been to Columbus with the urban life comment. Keep in mind Hoke was not recruiting scrubs and had very good classes. Worry about recruiting in February, not one of these kids will have an impact on the field this year.
At worst on the practice squad, too much athletic ability to give up on especially when they're willing to hold on to Gordon.
So your proof is backyard football shot on an iPhone? I wouldn't put too much stock in it, I sure didn't and to take several years to get his footwork down? This isn't Mozgov trying to run around, this is a freak athlete doing athletic things. I honestly have no clue what he can do, until I see some actual footage from practice I'll reserve my judgment. His size and speed make him a mismatch for anyone. Does it really matter if he's stretching the D at either position?I call him a WR mainly because if he can catch, he's a home run threat usually you don't have that from a TE. As long as he can catch and do it consistently they can run whatever formation to get the ball to him.
I don't think anyone has said he will be awesome, most comments have been that he has the athletic ability to be a WR. Its on him to put it all together
Is there really any proof to say his footwork is terrible? He's not a WR becuase he's been a QB all his life, but he is most certainly athletic enough to be a WR. He can line up at WR against DBs now and have moderate success as a first year WR, because he is much taller and bigger than the average DB. As a Browns fan you don't need him to to be a superstar, you need him to stretch the field which he can with his speed and come up with jump balls which he can most certainly do in goaline situations. Its on him, but if he can make defenses respect that, it opens up everything else.
My computer sucks today
So based on your statement, Tressel was in no way responsible for his actions after knowing what happened? TP and the rest of the Tat5 made their mistakes. The biggest mistake made was not reporting the violations once known. The Tat5 all would have at most received a 4 game suspension had JT came forward and reported. Keep in mind that JT also told the NCAA twice that he was unaware of the violations which was not true. You can call it sticking of for players and or protecting them, but the bottom line was that he still lied and this was after the guy was arrested so he really wasnt protecting anyone anymore.
By the time everything was all done with the Tat5, TP was facing a 10 game suspension when he chose not to cooperate with the NCAA and most think the penalties could have been worse if he had talked and the OSU Ban was to appease the NCAA in some way during the investigation process. In no way what TP and the others did was right by the rules, but they were insignificant to the violation that was committed by the coach.
Its not right to place the blame on one person, when there were several parties involved.
Also, Cincy cut him because he wasn't going to make the team, not because he broke lame team rules. If rules were important to them, they wouldn't have made all those questionable free agent signings with guys who've had criminal records.
Indy tanked their season to get Luck, I am not really ok with my team losing 15-16 games. Unless your team is already built for success, its not guranteed that a good rookie QB can step in and be successful. There are far better QB prospects to take in the next draft to make a francise QB w/out giving up the farm.
The Browns have had mediocre QBs at best, you don't see many pro bowl WRs without a pretty good QB throwing to them. I'd rather get the QB, then worry about a WR. With McCown and Manziel as the QBs the pressure is not on the WRs.
Manziel can of throw jump balls, that's all he did with Mike Evans. In the SEC that makes you a great QB
As a Browns fan, I'll take a 6'4 240 Pryor who can stretch the field and win jump balls against 6' DBs.
At 6'4 240 his 40 time has been timed from 4.32-4.52. I'd say that's fast enough to be a WR. To say he doesn't have an explosive first step, is kind of saying so without any proof. He's only played QB from HS on and has never had to exhibit the first step to base the comment on. When he sticks his foot in the ground and makes that decision to run, no one is catching him. See the 90yd TD vs The steelers. Give me a WR that big and I'll take the mismatch all day and the jump balls.
I have heard Gahanna was a possible location.
Not at all, this is not an OSU team with 10+ new starters and an untested QB.
whats your proof that having him on the sidelines didn't blow a recruit away and help contribute? It's star power when you point to professionals on your sidelines it helps your brand.
He was a little too cocky for not having a great series, he's a great shooter. But he made a lot of mistakes and other players stepped up while he was cold for 4/6 games. His numbers got better when the D was tired.
I would say it's a decent job of coaching considering who the Cavs lost in their lineup. GS hands down had the best team because of the injuries the Cavs had and a deep bench. Game 1 with Irving was a missed opportunity, but that game was lost on the FT line. Bottom line the Cavs didn't hit clutch shots, but you're also asking backups to be clutch that usually doesn't work out. The did what they could do and played hard D and had chances. Kerr trust realized after game 3 he could wear the Cavs down.
GS goes off because our bigs are tired by the 4th, should be interesting since they've ran small all game and we've matched for the most part. A fresh Mozgov could be a difference in the 4th
Lol, yes I think everyone on last years offense is a future NFL player
If Kerr's adjustments were smart and successful all series, it wouldn't be tied at 2. Kerr has the overal better talent in the lineup, Cavs have the best player.
