They trash him because he is great at what he does.  If he wasn't they wouldn't trash him.  Numbers, recruits, etc; are all good and necessary and prove a lot, but when other people in your profession feel threatened by what you are doing, that's usually a tell-tale sign you are pretty dang good at what you do.

Ok, but it's Burfict, it's like James Harrison.  Guys get reputations and then get called for some of things that sometimes maybe shouldn't be called.  The fact of all of this is, every team in the NFL has players that are dirty.  Some hide it better than others, but they are there.  A guy who push coaches, push trainers, and who clearly as Boomer Esiason, the great Bengal said, need to be psychologically evaluated, I have no respect for and doesn't need to be in the game.

Antonio Brown tried to jump over the punter.  Fans on this site, if any should enjoy and know that players try to hurdle people a lot.  Brown was penalized for that, but to say he purposely jumped and dropped kicked the punter in the face is crazy.

I have a cousin on this ship.  They have been on tour throughout the world for the past 9 months.  They have been docked in different locations and even though they are on deployment they still have some down time.  I'm guessing it happened during that down time.

Even if it is effective at noon, it still just isn't the same as a white out at night.  I see the noon start hindering the concept, but I understand why they are doing it.

I know there are time tables for healing, but we all know everyone heals differently.  In 2000 I tore everything, ACL, MCL, and cartilage damage.  I was running on the treadmill at 3 months, on the elliptical at 4 months, and was running hard and cutting at 6.  I had a friend who had a partial tear and it took him 6 months as well.  I've had players I coached half complete tears and it take them 9-10 months, others it has been much quicker.  My point in all of this is, Bosa could very well, could be ready, and probably will be ready to compete at fall camp.  I tore mine in January, and played my senior year of football, and began practice in July.  I wasn't a division 1 athlete with football as my future, so I'm sure Bosa will have all the best training and work extremely hard.

ESPN just said he was cooperative, but tried to name drop.  They treated it like no big deal, so if they aren't pushing it hard, most other media outlets won't either.  Nothing to see here is how I feel about it.

I don't see it as being that bad really.  I understand what he means but, I don't think Smith has as much to work on to the extent of reading coverage's like he says, but I do think he is required to read more coverage's than when he was in college.  I'm not saying Ohio State didn't teach him how, I just think a lot of times the coverage's are read for them from the sideline and then the play is changed.  The NFL I would think just expects this to be done by the guys on field more or less, instead of from the sideline.

FWIW, I also have a buddy who played for Beamer and was on the team with Vick that got embarrassed buy Florida St.  He has a lot of positive things to say about his time there and is still fairly connected to the program.  He coaches high school football and obviously has made a lot of contacts.  He has said all along this would be Beamer's last year.  He thinks he will retire at the end of the season, and also said that he thought Beamer was a lot sicker than what was being let on by he and the university.  He also is not sure, but feels like they will clean house even as good as Foster has been, unless the new head coach wants to keep him, which is probably a strong possibility.  Don't hate me for the next part because it's not me, I am repeating him, but he feels they will make a push for Coach Tressel.  The other name being floated in VA are Rich Rod.  Obviously all rumor and speculation at this point, but for me anyway since I live close to Tech and have so many friends who root for them, it will be fun to watch how it plays out.

I agree with you, but just too and to what you are saying.  I don't know if Tennessee can afford to fire Butch right now, at least this year.  I think he gets one more year no matter what.  Saturday's win makes it easier for the administration to justify, but they are still in a lot of debt paying other coaches that they relieved of duty.

When you are #1 and the defending National Champions with a lot of people back and a lot of hype, we have to remember you are going to take everyone's, and I mean everyone's best shot.  They have nothing to lose, and the undefeated defending National Champions have everything to lose.  Although I would like for them to win every game by at least 50, it's probably not going to happen.  People are playing the Bucks loose and with a chip on their shoulder.  Remember that chip?  You're not good enough to beat so and so from last year?  Well now it's on the other foot.  I thing it comes with the territory and we need too, as other posters have said, enjoy the ride while it lasts.  A win is a win.  And all those other cliches.
