I know he's ok with a RS but he also said that he was concerned about the depth chart @ Ohio State. What that tells me is that he was looking to start in 2016. With Cardale and Barrett here in 2016 (assuming Cardale doesnt start next year and go to the league after that) it seems he is threatened by that scenario.

I have to be honest, I am so over Torrance Gibson. I dont begrudge him for looking at other schools and I actually just hope he'll go because he seems too interested in immediate or nearly immediate playing time and if he's looking for that he shouldnt come to Ohio State.

We have a wealth of talent @ the QB position 3 headed monster, Collier, Burrow, we bound to sign at least one in 2016, and Danny Clark for 2017. I'm fine losing him and wish him the best of luck.

That's the most ignorant response ever. The entertainment part is on the field... not what he says in the locker room. As far as I'm concerned, talking with the media is not part of his job... his job is running with the ball.

PS: why doesnt Roger Goodell have the same obligation to the media? Where was he during his "super bowl" of events following the Ray Rice situation? He went into hiding like Henry Hill. 

Coaches, owners and NFL executives have an obligation to talk to the media. Players dont.

Actually, if you listened to his teammates and saw the things he does off the field for charity you would like him off the field too.

Who cares about the media?

Just because you make millions doesnt mean you immediately rid yourself of any social anxiety.

I love how they're called antics now that he's the best running back in the league. When he was a rookie and he wasnt talking to the media it wasnt a big deal. Now, he's a poor example.

The fact is that this is a media created issue, not a Marshawn Lynch created issue. If I told you that I wasnt comfortable talking to people you probably wouldnt ask me a second time. But the media thinks they're above everyone else and the continue to show up at his locker after every game. Just leave the guy alone, stop wasting your time.

It reminds me of the whole Brett Favre situation. News leaked from the Vikings that Favre was thinking about coming back to the NFL. So, what happens? The media flies down to Mississippi and camps out in his town. Then... he agrees to sign and travels to Minnesota. They media then follows him with a helicopter and chases him to the team facilities. When it's all said and done the media was crying that Favre was an attention whore and complaining about the media frenzy... the same frenzy they created!

Just leave Marshawn alone and it wont be an issue.

Well, considering he cant sign unless he's enrolling early I would imagine this isnt true.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Honestly, if I were Ball I'd transfer as well. Just for the chance to play.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Ah yes, I'm ignorant yet you make the exact comments that I was referencing when I saw the thread title.

And if there's a republican in the WH in 2017 then I'm sure some democrats will make the same comments.

And finally, you don't know my politics. 

Comment 22 Jan 2015

Oh lord... here come the contingent with their "Don't Tread on Me" flags and their pickup trucks with big tires.

Personally, I think these things are a waste of time for the president but I'm sure it's pretty damn cool for the players.

Feldman is a horrible broadcaster... Also, it sounds like he's broadcasting from the shitter... it has the echo sound through parts of his comments.

Comment 21 Jan 2015

I'm curious if you had the same confidence after Braxton went down... this was before that... I could tell you that I didnt see us losing a game and being in the playoff on August 6... on August 29, and days before I said JT was much better than people were giving him credit for and he would run the read option better than Braxton, but at that point I thought we would be 12-1 (MSU would have been the loss).

I commend you for your optimism but neither of us were exactly prophetic on August 6... I think there were many people that had that thought.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

I was originally a huge fan of Gibson but with time and more video I would be perfectly fine if Burrow was the only guy we got this year. 

Comment 13 Jan 2015

That Blim-O play, if I'm not mistaken, this is the first game they have run that play all season. I have been wondering all year why they haven't run a counter off the motion from Marshall or Wilson and they seemed to save it for this game.

Oregon had never seen it and they werent ready.
