I am not entirely clear on the business model, but they went IPO, and it was big news in NYC. And in a matter of a year, they started popping up everywhere. Even the original doesnt really seem the same anymore (Madison Square Park). Quality has suffered due to the barrage of demand.
Precisely... Stud will probably do a better job coaching up the tight ends than the OL. Unfortunately iat OSU under Urbz, it is also the position group you go to retire (eg, Tim Hinton)
I'm with you. Too many fans live in the 'what have you done for me lately' world, and they forget all the great moments JT has given us. To pile on after such a game and try to make him the scapegoat shows ignorance. I rewatched the game twice now... he actually did not have that bad of a game, and would have had a better one if he had even 1 second more to scan/throw than he was given all night long. It was painfully obvious that they started to get demoralized by not executing plays that they know how to run, and it was sad to see some players take off plays when we needed them most (eg Corey Smith). The OL looked overmatched, and that says it all, because it starts and ends in the trenches with Urban's system (and most others for that matter). Of course playcalling and schematic issues didn't help.
Our defense was simply gassed and the plan was based on trust that the offense would score a few points. Unfortunately, it wasn't our night.
