He just had wrist surgery a few weeks ago and hasn't been getting tackled in games. By the 2nd half he was running like the back we all saw last year he will be fine.
I am high on Samuel too, but there is no rush to just make him the feature back. I think they will be the two main backs this year and will complement each other well.
I still think some of this is on Powell for taking a terrible angle. They had that play well defended and he should have taken the pylon awa, but he ended up diving on his own teammate. I guess it doesn't matter now, but it was something I noticed yesterday. The frustrating part is that the d-line did a hell of a job on those for plays.
Powell also seemed to take bad angles and struggled in space. I also thought he should have been able to stop the first TD, even though I still believe his knee touched before.
I would do that naked for what he got paid.
I just assumed Time Warner was going to screw me on this one, so I called and started complaining. The lady let me finish and said its channel 1322 for you sir.
Haha. I figured it was fate because I never check the mail. Everyday I come home expecting my wife to give me that stare, but it hasn't happened. Ill go to her next one if she is smart enough to have it a different time of year.
We were supposed to go to a wedding for a cousin or something. I was the one who found the invite in the mail and tossed it before my wife could see it. So far I am in the clear.
Too bad we couldn't have an offensive of minded coach with over a decade of proven production.
Hey my football coach when I was 8 did much worse than this to me. He spent most of the practice dragging me around by my face mask telling me to man up. No one was filing charges tho because he was my dad and that was normal. It's amazing how things have changed, and I don't think it is for the better.
He still let's me have it when I need it 20 years later. He also celebrated the most when I succeeded in sports and life. I am thankful for everyone of those moments and I try to remember that and not baby my kids.
This is a violent game and Krenzel understands that more than anyone. These coaches know these kids have to be in the right mindset, or they are going to get hurt. I don't think this is about Craig's son. I think it's more about being a football coach.
Further investigation on twitter leads me to believe those people commenting are even bigger dbags than this even shows us.
I think there is a good thing to take out of this and I don't have anything against Jones. I think it's a good sign though that JT Barrett stepped up and took over the second job in the fall. We all know from following recruiting that he has plenty of upside. I just feel like I would be a lot more concerned if Jones was still ahead.
Let's not forget that we still have that guy named Urban Meyer who has shown he usually finds a way to score points.

There are not many low numbers on that list. I still believe this man will find a way to get this team in the end zone.
We were drinking some Craft Beer and it was 9$ I believe. I think they have set pricing standards around the ballpark. I usually go to the fridge area on the first base side where you can get tall boys, and they seem to be the best deal. I usually sit in that area so it's a short walk to the fridge. If you get a chance, try the Mt. Carmel Amber Ale. It's a red amber beer that is brewed in Cincy. I liked it quite a bit.
Easy. Johnny Manziel. You can draft him and just let auto pick do the rest.
In all seriousness I like Terrance West a lot. I know Mike Pettine likes him a lot. I think he is worth a risk because there is going to be a chance he becomes the starter at some point. Tate looks to be the guy, but he has never been a starter in NFL. West looked good this weekend behind a joke of an offensive line. West has great feet, vision, and finishes his runs.
I have been there multiple times this year and it's as good as advertised. You just have to take out a loan to get drunk, but the quality is great.
If you consider just talent alone, I think the answer is yes. There is a chance that 3 players from this unit will get drafted in the first round. Most people have Spence in the second half of the first round, and Bennett on the fringe of late first and early second. There is also that guy named Joey Bosa who people seem to think he is on his way to a high draft pick.
I think Hill will turn into a great player here and a potential high draft pick. There is just so much talent from top to bottom and anyone could break out like Bosa last year. Washington has the talent to break out at anytime and Urban just keeps adding to it every year.
The 02' Title D-line just got it done though. I remember it seemed like no one could run the ball, and when we needed a big play they always were able to come through.
I know its not a huge part, but I love his part as Dr. Kosevich in the movie 9 months. " You have a girl. Unless I cut the wrong cord"
Yikes buddy. Just pointing out that losing 2 games and "almost" losing another last year has nothing to do with putting together Power Rankings for THIS year. I am sure the rest of the teams on the list had their losses pointed out too.
Remember, though, the Buckeyes have lost two straight (and nearly three) after 24 consecutive wins under Urban Meyer.
Whew. Good thing he added that or I would have had no idea that ESPN wrote these rankings. Also, that is a good thing to remember because that has so much to do with a new season and new team.
HaHa that is awesome. Coincidentally mine happened my freshman year of college as well (maybe not so coincidentally). It was the Bush/Kerry election night because apparently any event is a reason to chug Magnum 40's in college.
You had a much more fitting night for this life changing event to take place. I think the Ryan Hamby dropped pass and hanging out a window vomiting are a perfect reminder for that night.
By the way, this made me realize I can't remember most of my families birthdays, but I can instantly remember the first time I duct taped 40's to my hands.
My first serious game of Edward FortyHands. I will tell you that microwaved egg roles after 80 ounces of Malt Liquor may have been one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made.
If these are the terms, I am more than ok with it. The Cavs didn't have to take on any extra contracts, and got word from Love that he wants to be there long term.
They also didn't have to trade off any of their expiring contracts, which means there is another deal to take place. I think now they will go after a rim protector.
I loved Wiggins as a prospect, and he also just seemed like a great kid. I think he gets the raw end of the deal because he would have been much better off here. He has to be the man now in Minnesota, and his game may never be suited for that.
It looks like the Cavs could have LBJ, Love, and Irving for the next 5 years. That would still just be Lebron in his early 30's, there is a chance for a real dynasty. In the end, you have to trade Wiggins upside for that chance.
