McLaurin making good on his shot. What a situation he found himself in... he gets to catch passes from the guy who put him on the map his last year at Ohio state!

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I never liked that slow TTUN kid with the long blond hair.  Sounds like his NFL teammates already cant stand him either.

I still can’t believe Winovich’s “mirage” statement after his revenge tour ended abruptly with the 62-39 thrashing in Ohio Stadium. Perhaps he’s finally learning to “put a lid on it” and let his actions on the field speak for themselves as in 62-39. Hopefully, for his own good, the kid stuff stops now. LOL

What position is Winovich going to play? He’s 255 pounds, which is light for DE in the NFL and about the same weight as two of the Patriots’ starting linebackers (Kyle Van Noy is 6-3/250, Donta Hightower is 6-3/260).

I've been saying this to fellow Redskins fans in my vicinity...I think McLaurin could be the day one starter out here, not Haskins.

Left Tackle issues.

If the Williams situation isn't resolved (I'm not holding my breath) then Washington brass would be idiots to put Haskins out there without adequate blind side protection (there's no depth behind Williams).

Then again, Washington brass has been idiotic before.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But the way Winovich said that he can't be doing that stuff anymore because now its professional really makes it sound like he didn't take it seriously in college. Is that why michigan still sucks? They don't take it seriously because its "just college ball"? Just dickin around with revenge tours, and t-shirts, and dumbass comments to the media. Its college, no big deal.

HS

He also kept repeating "I'm a rookie", which are codewords for "I don't have anything to talk trash about yet". Given that he's on the Patriots, he'll likely be talking trash by the playoffs or next year.

Hard to say if Winovich wised up on his own or was lambasted by Belichick, but either way I am simply glad that he is gone from my general vicinity and would like nothing better than to never hear from him again. 62-39 should have made that happen, but if it took going to NE then so be it. 

I really cannot fathom how difficult the Omaha landings had to be. Moon, tides, and oh the Germans and their soldiers and booby traps as well. Amazing then, now and always.

Every head football coach is aware of and concerned with the kicking game as part of special teams.

There are many reasons why this is so.

No matter what the perception may be.

It did seem that whenever Urban talked about his kickers, it was never in a good way. I remember him taking umbrage with Haubeil his freshman year—when he was paying his own way as a greyshirt—and lambasting him in the press and feeling sorry for the kid.

I always felt like the points were on the board as Nugent trotted out. Unbelievably reliable.

McLaurin may very well prove to be a third round steal for the Redskins.

HS

Looking back, it’s hard to believe Terry McLaurin had to work for an Ohio State offer but that was our first clue of the kind of cloth he was cut from. Total team player. His block against Penn State deserves a plaque at the College Football Hall of Fame.

Urban actually was more conservative than he gets "credit" for.  Jim Tressel's FG was Urban's QB run.

Urban just had a different philosophy, e.g. "We're paid to score touchdowns, not kick field goals". That said, he did take FGs and special teams very seriously, and had a big hand in coaching that unit. I remember the Spring Game where he would make the kicker kick progressively longer and longer FGs in front of the crowd.

Sounds like Winovich has learned quickly that he’s no longer the “BMOC,” but a little fish in a big pond. Reminds me a bit of those guys in college who wanted to keep talking about their high school exploits but came to realize that they mean less than nothing.  

I think writer of article has been in east coast/NFL bubble or something.  Talks as if Winovich invented the “little brother” expression, and as if Winovich really hurt us with his sour grapes nonsense after we hung 62 on them.

Funny, but I had the exact same thoughts about BMOC to little fish, big pond. I have a feeling he got some good advice before arriving to shut up and work hard as a rookie.

A lot of guys could learn a lot from McLaurin.  Lots of college players want to be the guy in the highlight reel, making the big plays on third down. The NFL has a place for those guys, but not always for long.  They are popular and in demand and get shampoo commercials and such for a while, but it fades.  But McLaurin is a guy who is valuable and good to have on the field even when not getting the ball.  He’s an “every down” receiver.  That’s how you get to stay and have a long career in the NFL.

So what would an Indiana-scented candle smell like? Bobby Knight?

And I have a good guess why Winowich has toned it down. Coach Bellichick first day said, "STFU" and that was it.

"Ah, so 62 points later, now he's interested in just quietly playing football – got it. It's amazing what a proper beatdown will do to someone's psyche."

I take issue with this line, as his "mirage" bit came well after the 62-point beatdown. The change in psyche came only after orientation, where known Buckeye jersey wearer and perrenial bet loser Tom Brady probably told him to knock it off.

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

Exactly, the beat down had nothing to do with it. I don't like his mouth, but he's smart enough to know as a rookie 3rd round draft pick playing for the Patriots, you need to shut the hell up. I'm not sure he'll be able to stay that way though if he turns into a star.
