I remember when he trolled USC and made them think he was interested so they'd pay for him to take an OV when really he just wanted to visit his old Glenville buddy.

Wow, those are some incredibly racist teammates. It's like that racist from ESPN who called RG3 a "cornball brother". If you say that someone isn't "black enough" because they're well-mannered, well-spoken, and respect the guys in the front office who write the checks, you are being wildly offensive to your own race and need to shut up.

I'm currently dating a Penn State fan. She didn't go there, she actually went to Kent State, but she grew up a fan. We're going to Halloweekends Saturday because I don't think she wants to see the game. I am not objecting because she bought us Browns tickets for Sunday. Plus Cedar Point is the shit. Overall I think it's going to be a pretty good weekend.

I don't see a reason for him to want to gain weight. There are the same amount of 230+lb RBs in the top 10 in the NFL (1) in rushing yards as there are guys that are sub-200. On average, the top RBs in the league are between 215-220. If he can maintain his amazing athleticism at around 220-225, that should be his ceiling. He's not a bulldozer-type back so I don't see why we would want to make him into one. He has an incredibly special skillset and could very well translate into a 3-down back at the next level.

Haha thanks Linga. I love the area in general, and downtown Cleveland is actually a pretty cool place to be near these days. Living near GL could possibly be dangerous considering I work from home a lot, so we'll see. I just love it though. One of my favorite establishments to frequent.

League 1, I'm the commissioner and reigning champ, sitting at 5th/12. Went Broncos heavy with D. Thomas, J. Thomas and E. Sanders as 3 of my top 5 picks. Also have Brees. RB production has been horrendous (I started the year with Bush and Pierre Thomas as my top 2, but it's PPR and they were both studs last year :-/). However I swung Antonio Gates to a guy for Lesean McCoy so things are looking up. Also have Gordon waiting on my bench.

League 2, I'm in 4/10. My team is actually really good. Got Brees again, along with LeVeon Bell and Julius Thomas. Cordarrelle Patterson and Montee Ball can kiss my ass but luckily I was able to snag Oliver off the waivers. Andre Johnson and Mike Floyd need to pick things up for me to make any moves in the playoffs.

League 3, I actually joined after a guy backed out after the draft. Currently am in 3/10. Got d-bag Peterson 1st so that's a bust, but I also have Luck, Demarco Murray, Lamar Miller, McKinnon, Vincent Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Andre Johnson, and Greg Olsen, so I'm in good shape.

Thankfully they have stud 5* recruit Shane Morris backing him u...OH WAIT HE SUCKS TOO.

This has been the second year I've gone to the innaugural tapping, and needless to say this is now going to be a tradition. The beer was, of course, delicious and they got some pretty awesome new stuff in the gift shop.

On a side note, anyone who hadn't had the chance to get there needs to, if not for the beer than for the food. I got a chicken sandwich with "tator tots". At Great Lakes, their idea of tator tots are approximately 4 times larger than a normal tator tot and are filled with homemade garlic mashed potatoes. What a wonderful time indeed.

You can't just pick and choose which stats to include though. There's nothing to say he couldn't have turned those TDs into drives that would've ended in TDs anyhow, had he not thrown the long ball. The fact he was able to get those 3 long ball TDs still says a lot about our pass defense. We knew he was a gunslinger, and after the first one we should've been all over it. I mean, Memphis held him to 11/27 for 216, 1/1. We should've been able to do that too, as I refuse to believe Memphis is somehow a defensive juggernaut. Whether it was on the players or coaches, we defended the long ball poorly. 

I guess with Brewer it was just the constant 3rd down conversions on a very hostile field at night. It's tough to see that and think we played well against him. However you want to slice it, you can't take away his performance, especially when they beat us by 2 TDs. 

I'm not meaning to dog the Buckeyes defense. As I said, we're improving. But we do still have work to do, no doubt.

Kiel went 21/32 (>66% completion percentage) with 352 yards, 4 TD and no INTs. That is absolutely shredding a defense. About as textbook as that gets. I'm not sure when exactly it was that we "shut him down".

The thing with Brewer was third down. 9/17 conversions for the game. Then when we had the momentum after tying the game he led them down on that TD drive that killed it. A guy like that on an offense like that shouldn't be able to have that kind of success. We made him look way better than what he actually is.

Hey thanks for this. Just ordered a jersey from there this morning!

Comment 21 Oct 2014

They're improving, and looked good against an accomplished QB in Nova. However, we saw Gunner Kiel just shread us, and we couldn't even shut down that damn Brewer kid from VT. If they can continue to improve, we will get the respect. The matchup vs. Sparty is going to be pivotal in this regard.

McShay has compared Heuerman and Vannett to Zach Ertz and Coby Fleener as far as talent is concerned.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

My point was you came after me right away, but never even addressed the OP until almost an hour after he made the thread.

This argument is boring. Have a good one Jeremy.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

And it only took you just shy of an hour to actually respond to the OP instead of going after me.
