Yeah, he got rolled up on last week in the midst of a killer game, it was a shame. It looked fairly serious/painful.
That was absolute BS. But I just saw that Jenner is out for a month or two now too. The AIRBHG has been replaced by the ACBJHG. And yet this team is still on an 8-0-1 streak? Incredible. Love this team.
STOOOOOOOOOOP. Really though, at least Fickell had to have picked up some knowledge from Ash. How crazy would it be if we ended up losing all 4 coordinators though? (Don't hate me for jinxing us and saying that, but they're all future head coaches) I'm probably most surprised that it's Ash and not Fickell or Warinner.
My 11W time for the evening is up, GF's almost here, so I don't have time for a full list, but some of my favorites:
Houses of the Holy
Weezer (The Green Album)
Pick a Beatles album
Icky Thump by The White Stripes
Blind Melon (Blind Melon)
(If true) damnit, B1G, this is why you can't have nice things.
From what I've read, he and Franklin do have issues. The offense isn't the one he went to PSU to run under BOB. He also obviously regressed this year, even considering his bad line play. He has all the tools to be a pro, but if he doesn't think he can show them in Franklin's offense he ought to go.
Totally agree, that's why I've been wondering where he went. He seemed like a cool dude and I'd have liked to hear his take on the matchup.
The article says they're old friends, so that would explain the hug. The Raiders are more than a Harbaugh away from contention though, and in that division? Yikes, no way they're better than Denver, SD, or KC this coming year or the next.
I mean he did take the niners to 3 straight NFC title games and this is his 4th year, and he's being pushed out by the FO. I don't think it's his loyalty that's the problem. 4 years is practically a lifetime the way teams hire and fire these days. Do you really think he'd rather be in Oakland or with the Jets than with the team he has in SF?
I'm a little confused by everyone's comments. You guys know Ed is already an OC, right? And seeing as this is such a "huge" hire for Urban I don't see him not bringing in another guy as OC, so I'd imagine we're going to keep the co-OC titles with both pass (new guy) and run (Warinner) game coordinators. If he was going with a sole coordinator, it would've been Fickell after Withers left, and that didn't happen.
Whatever happened to BamaMike (I think that was his name...)? I haven't seen him round here in a long time.
To piggy back off of your last point, in the 10-11' season the best team in the country lost in the Sweet 16 (where they got jobbed by the refs after already being jobbed by the committee, having the toughest bracket ever for a #1 overall seed). UConn just so happens to have won the title that year as well, despite not having been close to the best team that year.
That's one reason I actually love European soccer. The best team for the season wins, period. The season isn't just some feeder round for a tournament. I get that that's not fair or feasible when you have 100+ or 300+ teams, but it's still bothersome that mediocre teams do win championships that way.
Wow, that has to be the most in-depth/specific rumor I've ever read. Sounds legit.
Well if you're talking about the Jets/Titans game (Edit: whoops, Jags, not Jets), come on, those two teams are awful. This had been a brutal season in regards to primetime games though. The best games have typically been the late afternoon games on Sunday. I have a feeling we're going to get some awesome playoff games this year.
Now if you mean all of the safety-related rule changes, well (and I am not a fan of Goodell, I think he's generally a terrible commissioner) he really had no choice. The League is getting absolutely shelled about player safety and they had to do something. And while people complain about the way penalties hamper defense these days, the NFL is more popular than ever and it's because of the growth of offensive skill. Baseball wasn't super popular in the 90s because of pitching duels.
If he can slow himself down a bit I think Johnny could be a very good QB. That just comes with experience though, and you're right that he has Gordon as a safety blanket and they're definitely capable of the big play. Also, the Panthers' D is not what it was last year.
No sustained elite performances? 3 straight conference title games in the NFL is about as sustained and elite as it gets.
I don't think it was the Bengals' jerseys that were the problem. And while I fully expect that JFF will be better this week, I don't see him exactly "lighting it up." If one of the RB's has a good matchup, roll with him.
I don't think there was anyone who could play that position. Now Urban has a few guys in/coming in who can fit into that spot (Brown, Alexander, Hawkins in 16). So we'll see.
Here's my conspiracy theory: we've been saving him all year for this game. Bama loves big, run-stopping linebackers, and those guys won't be able to keep up with Heuerman. He's our secret weapon going into the game, and I'd love to see him break out for a big one.
That throw to Devin Smith on 3rd and 20-something has to be the play of the year. What an incredible throw/catch combo at such a clutch time. Also, Zeke is a hell of a blocker.
I certainly wouldn't mind seeing it, but Urban likes having co-coordinators for a reason. I'd imagine it'll come down to who we hire as the other coordinator and/or QB coach.
Hausmann and Farrell? Yes please. I think Baugh is going to be a weapon in the passing game but his blocking will be a big question mark. And in this day and age you can never have enough guys who can cover, I'd love to add Briscoe to our growing DB depth.
"Some kid named Eager is the first '18 commit? No kidding!" < my reaction. I am not a smart man...
Serious question: has your QB ever hit you with the ball? I played with a guy who was 6'6" and he was pretty difficult to see around, and I'm 6'1".
That 3 was all net for Goodwin, but I'm way more impressed with the next play he made in the video. While leaping after running the floor he catches a Kevin Love-esque full court outlet pass and while still in midair he had the presence of mind to hit a trailing teammate perfectly for a layup- WOW.
