Ignoring the Rick Flair nonsense. The thing that really stands out is the second graphic and the recruiting dispernacy between the East and West conference. A total of nine 4-5 star recruits for the West is very sad.
I heard his feelings were hurt because old Jimmy didn't ask him to have a slumber party
This sleepover thing is creepy. Next thing you know these kids are going to have boxer shorts come up missing.
Wait, you are telling me there is a time when tacos are not appropriate????
BOOOOM, or should I say Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
BOOOOM!!! Wait, wrong thread
While I agree with many people that Jalin may be on the bubble I see somebody using a lower draft pick on him due to his upside as a returner. The majority of the 5-7 round guys are drafted as special teams/back up/ practice squad guys (heck a lot end up cut during camp).A team will likely look at Jalin as someone who could really contribute as a returner and draft him.
Yep, it is amazing to me that it is the most popular sport in the country yet the players have possibly the worst contract structure in all major sports. The players should be livid with the players association due to the fact that the NFL is making BILLLIONS of dollars yet other than the guaranteed money the contracts are essentially worthless. Once they get their big time contracts they are often cut before they see a fraction of the money they signed for while putting tons of wear and tear on themselves playing under rookie contracts.
I saw that. Also interesting that they called Shazier's hit legal, since Gio was not a defenseless receiver (but the hit by Williams was flagged). If you watch them side by side the receiver takes the same amount of steps. One hit is made over the middle with the shoulder, while the other hit was made with the helmet in the flat. Look the Bengals lost due to their own mistakes, just curious how they are called differently.
I swear I am not bitter......
*Fuck you cancer!!!!
It actually should have been a penalty, according to the NFL rule book. He violated all three of the clauses in the rule. He was outside the tackle box, squared up the other player, lowered his helmet, and delivered a forcible blow. No way around it, no fumble, 15 yard flag, and Bengal ball.
Here is a link to the hit. Towards the end of the first video you can see Shazier celebrating near midfield with teammates.
Speaking as a long suffering Bengal fan
Not defending Bengals fans at PBS last night but there is some serious anger towards the Steelers when you look at the last 10 years and after watching Gio go down like he did last night with no flag it came out last night in then mop mentality that you see everywhere (factor in Big Ben is basically enemy #1 due to numerous reasons). You can go back to the Kimo/Carson leg crawl, the broken jaw of both Keith Rivers and Kevin Huber. Both the hits on Carson and Rivers prompted new rules in the NFL (though it took it happening to Brady for the rule to be passed).
The Bengals brass should fire themselves because they are just as inept.
They Bengals deserve plenty of blame for losing that game (if not all), there is no doubt. But lets not pretend that the Steelers were saints in that game (or any other game). That was one of the most chippy games that I have ever seen. Basically flags could have been thrown on every play. Two different times last night a Steeler coach got involved in a play. The refs didn't have control of the game, the entire NFL dropped the ball last night and should be embarrassed. The announcers last night were terrible.
Speaking as a Bengal fan that was probably the worse loss I have ever seen. To lose the way they did after having the lead, the ball, under 2 minutes, in field goal range, and cough the ball up, then gifting them a chip shot field goal. Factoring in the last 25 years of inept football that has occurred in the city of Cincinnati make it that much more worse.
I could have been wrong about the exact timing of it (was pretty furious at the moment).
He was celebrating much earlier than that, while Gio was still on the ground. I remember seeing him (because I was watching for him and trying to give him the benefit of the doubt) doing that crouching deal with arms crossed with a few other Stooler players. Loved him as a Buckeye, not so much after that display.
The only obvious solution to the defensive receiver rule is to outlaw any pass over the middle.
While that is obvious sarcasm that is where the big hits occur. The hit zone has gotten so small that it is nearly impossible for a safety to make a solid/clean hit to try to dislodge the ball. Then factor in the receiver that drops their head as they catch the ball, what was once chest level is now a helmet.
Me likey, just don't like the fact that he crystal balled Lawrence to LSU.......
Injuries derailed his career. Would have likely been the all time home run king and one of the best in history (still up there though).
I guess Nigel has no plans of playing at the next level if the cold bothers him that much. Come to think of it who was the last NFL team to win the Super Bowl that comes from the South???
The only option that I see is to tweet him
The same can be said about the DT position.
Based on the twitter handle I am guessing that Jordan was born in 1998. Before too long kids are going to be attending college that were born in the 2000s, man I feel old.
