He went low on Zeke, took a knee to the helmet. Thats just poor tackling form. Keep your eyes up and put your facemask in the numvers. Dont drop your head. Or you get your bell rung.
And Spencer laid a clean block on Collins. Its what Evan Spencer did best. Block the ever loving piss out of safeties. And LBs...like when he took out 2 Bama backers on Zekes 85 yards through the Heart of the South. Bama got beat up and run through. They couldnt match the physicality. Nothing cheap about it.
I played in the OAC at Ohio Northern. Guy from our varsity played a few years in the NFL. Not to mention Mount Union has sent a few to the league. DIII is no joke...and the OAC has plenty of talent.
Was in The Shoe the day he broke his ankle. Was already a shadow cast over the day with the disappearance of Kosta Karageorge. Was surreal to hear the silence as JT lay on the field in obvious pain. Led to one of the classier moves I have seen from an opponent. When Devin Gardner knelt beside him and consoled him as the team doctors went to work. Remember the pit in my stomach as I watched them cart him off. It was replaced by euphoria a few plays later as Zeke housed a 4th and 1 from 40 yards out to all but seal the deal. My first game in The Shoe...beating that team. I was ecstatic. Then I turned on the radio and was reminded of the injury to JT. And the impending thoughts of what it would do to our playoff hopes.
Fast forward ro now...and a healthy JT. Happy for him that he gets the chance to finish what he started 2 years ago. I know there are questions due to the late season offensive struggles. I have no question that JT will lead this team and give us his all while doing it. He deserves this moment. And I have no doubt he and Urban will have this team ready to make the great state of Ohio proud.
Man...talk about a serious gut punch on a Tuesday morning. It may sound weird, but he felt like part of the family. Watched him grow up the last few years. From the excitement of his on the spot commitment. To watching his development. Hearing his open love of everything Buckeye related. Attending every camp and recruiting weekend. Every word was positive. Every action was pro Buckeye. Danny Clark was everything I hope my future son will be.
And now this. Respectful and thoughtful all the way through. Wish this young man nothing but the best. Would have loved for his story to be written in Columbus. And it still may...you never know. Thanks for everything you have done for this. God is great and will provide you with the best opportunity for you. Stay faithful and follow the path He has set for you. Best of luck, and know that Buckeye Nation will always be pulling for you no matter where you go. Godspeed young man. And Go Bucks.
Just saw one saying he wasnt Buckeye calier anyway. I quickly replied that it wasnt neccessary to make such a comment. I usually stay quiet...but couldnt let that slide.
As a Browns fan, I would like to adjust your proposal. Joe Thomas gets to choose where he wants to go with no penalty to the new team. And NO FREE wins for B-more. This is their fault anyways.
No take backs! In all seriousness...is Richardsin even playimg football anywhere anymore?
Trade it and get a kings ransom. That the front office will turn into an even bigger disaster.
Look at that. A retired legend. An idiot. A waste of free agency money. A guy they ran out that actually wanted to be here. A first round bust that Belichik will make a pro bowler. And the best trade Cleveland ever made.
Browns fans are like Goonies...We never say die! But honestly...watching the preseason I knew that with Griffin and McCown it was only a matter of tine before Kessler would be forced out there. The O line is just awful. Outside of Joe Thomas. And the two QBs both have injury histories longer than the list of starting QBs for Cleveland since 99. You put injury prone qbs behind a line that cant protect and the future becomes now real quick.
Anyone else relieved they didnt wast a high pick on another QB yet?
What we need is to do what they did in Forrest Gump with the STOP! signs. Only for JT, put SLIDE on them. That would ease my nerves when he runs.
The line in there about Tennessee was a fantasticly subtle junk punch. Just a well written piece that belittles that douche and makes good sense at the same time.
So let me get this straight...this kid is calling out a defense that has scored 3 times. And not given up a TD in 2 games...as basic? Lose 9 starters? Big deal. The Bullets are locked and reloaded. And ready to open fire this Saturday evening in Norman.
One thing is certain to me...you will know early if the Cavs have a chance. I see LeBron going right at Green early and often. Playing the mind game and baiting him hard. I personally dont think Green is smart enough to not do something ridiculously dumb if LeBron gets in his head.
That being said, someome else has to step up. Granted...Cleveland has the best player on the court. His Batman and Robin gamecwith Kyrie last night kept them alive. But they need someone else to hit shots. Create. If they get production from someone else, the chances increase of Cleveland making history.
No. I didn't pick Kentucky to win it. And teah...they are my team. No reason to be disrespectful about that. I have family and a close family friend who are alums of UK. So that's the connection. Maybe you should keep your snide remark to yourself if you don't understand a situation.
We do know urban is a fan of a solid posterior.
You got it all wrong...he left his job bagging groceries to run the Browns. I say this as a Browns fan.
Do we even have a GM yet?
I didn't bother this year. For the obvious reason that no team really jumped out at me as being dominant. Im rooting for Buddy. I like the kid...he can fill it up big time. Plus, I hate Duke, Carolina and Kansas. And Villanova always pisses me off. So I'd have to say Oklahoma is my team since mine just got knocked out by Creeper Crean.
I would post a picture of my little guy Lynk here if I knew how. He's a 5 month old red nose pit bull. He's also a little asshole. But so cute.
16 year old me would have been outright insulted by that tactic.
That's an interesting question you pose pertaining to the DH. Never thought about it...but it is very valid. DH's are usually guys who have passed their days of playing every day. Yet they still have the requisite chops to hit consistently enough to be in the lineup daily. It might actually cause resentment that these dudes just show up, hit and get paid pretty well to do it.
I'd say Lee is more comparable to Kam Chancellor. Or as I mentioned above, Deone Bucanon.
Arizona is doing it right now. They have 4 safeties they use on most downs. Moved Deon Bucanon down to a hybrid LB spot. He's a Lee type...has excellent cover skills and is a very sure tackler in the run game.
He and Gurley split reps as freshmen. He hasn't played a full season since. Injury prone as all get out.
While I love Zeke...I don't think it's fair to judge either Crowell or Duke yet. The offense has been a potluck of awful. No passing game for a team that is usually down early. So you can't really use the running game. That's why I am all for trading down and taking a receiver. Get a vertical threat to pair with Gordon. You got a quality Tight End in Barnidge. And Lord knows there is slot guys a plenty on the roster. Take an outside receiver. Roll with McCown. Take a QB mid rounds and groom him. Take the lumps now for the greater good.
There isn't a qb in this draft that will make this team a contender right away. So why not improve the pieces around the qb and let a young guy get comfortable in the system. Because if you take a
QB at #2....there is no grooming period. The fans will demand he plays. And that will spell doom for the future.
