Chuck Norris' calendar goes from March 31st to April 2nd, because no one fools Chuck Norris.
Upvote for this. That's the first thing I thought of, and surprised I had to get this far down to see it already posted.
I'm surprised he didn't bring up the game clock running after the player goes out of bounds. I seem to remember something happening along these lines, that gave Bama 1 second to attempt a long field goal, hmmmm......
D'Andrea was #5, and that was around the time I first started playing the EA sports NCAA Football games. Ever since, I always give 5-star MLBs #5.
I sense sarcasm, but the answer would be no. It's not the players faults their coach is an idiot.
NBA Jam, WrestleMania, Off-Road, Terminator 2, TMNT
I agree with THE GAME being at 8pm. The problem is, that slot is reserved for games usually involving 2 ranked teams. That means THE GAME won't be there anytime soon, thanks to TTUN.
Didn't Urban pay a visit to Seattle to talk with Carroll about defense? Or was it a phone call?
Either way, it's interesting that Carroll has made it a point to get the big, physical DB's. This could be the next defensive adjustment being made to offset the fast tempo, spread offenses. It obviously worked against Denver.
Braxton needs to make a huge step in reading defenses. If that happens, spreading the ball around should take care of itself. Urban's offense is all about creating mismatches and space for the playmakers by making the defense account for a mobile QB. Too many times, it was look to Philly Brown, then take off if wasn't open. Just about every play has some sort of play action, so progressing through his reads quickly (a la Kenny G) will result in the ball finding it's way to everyone. I don't think we'll see a 60+ catch, 1000yd season from a WR, but hopefully will see 5-7 guys around 30-40 catches and 500+yds.
So, where was this game when I was growing up???
Ok so this is the 4th or 5th time checking this thread, and with the storm heading towards us in the east, i'm thinking i definitely need to go and grab my NES and get her warmed up.
And the thread is NES games, not SNES.
Griffey Baseball was the bomb though.
I saw Contra listed, and I have always enjoyed Super Contra as well-After reading this, may have to make an attic run and hook the NES up. Especially to control the Ducks in Duck Hunt-never knew about that. Super Sprint (which never ended), BattleToads (impossible), Ninja Turtles (arcade version-original was tough on the bomb dismantling underwater stage).
Super Tecmo Bowl was also a favorite, it was mind boggling to have 8 plays to pick from on offense instead of just 4.
WIfe is a huge Paper Boy fan, me, not so much.
Silkworm is my favorite obscure game. Two players-one was a Jeep with a gun, the other was a helicopter, fighting on the same side.
That's half of the equation. Need to be seeded 3rd in playoffs, behind undefeated Bama, and another 1 loss SEC team-would assume this would have to be out of the West, because the East Champ would have just lost to Bama, so LSU or Auburn most likely. Then, tOSU would play 2 higher seeded SEC teams in the playoffs. Win both of those games convincingly, and I don't think there is anymore argument about tOSU vs SEC on a big stage.
I still don't understand why they had to completely discontinue the franchise. They could've just used made up rosters to begin with, like what you end up with after 4-5 seasons, and recruiting imaginary players.
Then, it would be no different than buying an tOSU sweatshirt or Tshirt. No likeness of any actual player would be present, other than any throwback rosters.
They also would list hometowns that were very similar to the actual hometowns. I can't remember which year of the game it was, but Pryor's hometown wasn't Jeannette, PA, but something close to it. It made it pretty easy to figure out who was who when changing the names.
And the fact he was 6'5", 235lbs, #2, QB, that didn't hurt either.
Mack makes much more sense then if they go Defense. Not sure if they would go Watkins #1 overall.
Not sure why then all the talking heads covering the draft (NFL Network, ESecPN) continue to say the pairing of Watt/Clowney is a possibility. No way Clowney can play DE in a traditional 3-4, and I don't think he has the ability to stand up as an OLB either.
A lot of people are saying this, but Houston was running a 3-4. Unless O'Brien is changing that, but I don 't follow the Texans, so I'm not sure. I don't think Clowney fits the mold of a 3-4 DE, as they are more about holding the point of attack and keeping the OL off the LBs. Watt is the only real exception to the typical 3-4 DE, in that he gets a ton of QB pressure. Clowney is a 4-3 DE, so unless they are changing to a 4-3, I don't see him fitting there.
Can't believe i had to scroll this far down in the thread to finally see the A-Team. BA BARAKUS!!!
Wonder if this injury had anything to do with decision to come back? Not like he could have exactly performed at the combine, or even possibly a pro day.
By playing 15yds off the ball the next 2 plays.
Wouldn't it be great to wake up and see- "OSU schedules Home and Home with Arkansas in '14-'15." I know, I know, logistically, it wouldn't happen with this year, but who really thinks Bert will be around long enough to see this matchup ever happen.
I'm not saying he should have to get to his 3rd read. With the weapons out there, that should rarely happen. I think his 1st option is open a lot more than not, but it seems as if he doesn't see it or feel comfortable throwing it unless there is serious separation. Kenny on the other hand made his reads and let it rip. There was a throw that comes to mind, I just can't remember which game, that he led the receiver who was clearly covered into the corner of the endzone for a TD. You never see Braxton make those throws, are really any touch throws.
I think its a definite combination of the QB, WR, and play calling. The percentage each is responsible for is the real question.
I think you are dead on. No one will ever question Braxton as an athlete, and I know Kenny played against some terrible teams, but his reads were way quicker, and actually threw receivers open, instead of waiting for them to clear. Down the stretch, it was pretty clear the game plan was safe, short passes and read option with Hyde. That was it. Nothing down the field. Was that by design due to lack of talent at WR, or not enough confidence at the QB position? Only Herman and Meyer can answer that.
I would suggest Braxton learns how to throw in all types of weather. Until the NFL realigns into a division with all domed teams, and gets home field advantage, and plays a Super Bowl in a Dome, he will need this trait in the future.
I'm no meteorologist (even though I would love to have no pressure at all to ever be right), but the wind typically calms down at night versus the day. That's the biggest factor in throwing, even more so than the cold. I'd hate to lose out on all the positives a night game brings (national audience, atmosphere, recruiting) because the current QB, who has 1 year of eligibilty left, can't throw in the cold/wind.
