    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    Yeah, the interview where he said that he's been "getting hit too much" is a product of that change in attitude. He had to have known that one of if not the biggest reason for him taking so many sacks was due to his holding onto the ball so God damn long. He made it extremely difficult for a...

    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    And his statement about the knee highs on their flight to Europe while his teammates slept. I laugh when play in my mind him prancing up and down the aisle, bumping into the flight crew and guys trying to go take a leak. Russell says so many goofy things that it's easy to get duped by...

    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    After a little more research, I discovered that you're right! It looks like I was spoofed, too. I'll have to take back at least some of what I've said about Russell. Thanks for pointing it out and setting me straight.

    Sherman arrested for DUI

    I haven't heard an explanation of Sherman's 'probation' period. If it started the day of his arrest, he's probably OK as that occurred in 2021. But if it starts at the day of his sentencing, then he's a few weeks short of the 2 years. My guess is that it's the latter, but I'm not sure enough...

    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    Yep. I might have been a little off on the timing of his "poop cycle", but here's the article that documents what Russell said about his time on the crapper: “It’s theoretically possible to design a diet and fitness routine so efficient that your body no longer creates waste,” Wilson said. ”...

    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    I'm not even sure that the critiques of him qualify as "attacks" in the conventional sense. No one's calling Russell a POS as one might Jamal Adams. Most of what has been said about Russell's character, at least from the comments I've read in this forum, is that he's cringy, goofy, silly, sort...

    Military Football During WW2

    And that was on a clay track and in pretty rudimentary cleats. He won first in 5 events in the WA high school regional track meet, which included two relay teams, in 1943, but due to the war, they didn't have a state meet. Speaking of the 100-yard dash, the best high school athlete I ever saw...

    Military Football During WW2

    Not hardly. I think you're confusing the 100-yard dash with the 100-meter dash. Big difference. https://tssaasports.com/history/results/champions/?sport=track-boys&type=100%20yard%20dash%20champion

    Just another bust ?

    Heisman Trophy winner, #1 overall pick, Colts trading up to get him, I would say based on that alone, that the bar was set so high that he would have damn near made the HOF to not be considered a disappointment. In his first 4 seasons with the Cots, George threw 41 TD passes and 46...

    Jamal

    Same here. And on the offensive side of the ball, wide receivers and running backs. I hope that they give a little more love to the big uglies, the boys in the trenches on both sides of the LOS.

    Just another bust ?

    I saw the date of the article, too, but it's irrelevant. Old news or not, it's still incredibly insane and reflects poorly on both parties that signed the contract. Hell, I spend 4 hours a week doing crossword puzzles while sitting on the toilet.

    Just another bust ?

    Wow, I'd never heard of a clause like that in any contract, sports or otherwise. It makes you wonder about the sanity on both ends of that deal. If a team is so worried about a player not spending as little as 4 hours a week that they have to insert a clause in a contract, WTF are they doing...

    Just another bust ?

    Hehe. Not according to TT. He started a TD celebration trend: Tebowing. During that period of time, ESPN was getting awfully close to advocating a specific religion by allowing Tebow to talk about his the way he did. Not that I think it should have been banned as it's part of free speech...

    Just another bust ?

    I'm sure he was a nice guy, but I got sick and tired of him throwing his religion around. I used to listen to a lot of sports talk during the football season, and in those two years with Denver when he was a hot topic, Tebow was constantly on the radio pumping his religion, to the point where...

    Just another bust ?

    Yep. And there were a lot of pundits who correctly predicted that he'd fail, mainly due to his long wind-up delivery. I was stunned when the Broncos not only took him in the first round but traded up to get him. Just one more example of the Broncos total ineptness when it comes to quarterbacks.

    Just another bust ?

    The Broncos won in spite of Tebow, never due to him. His completion percentage for the two playoff games he played in was 40.4%. Heck, we could devote a 30-page thread to Bronco QB's who were busts. That place is a graveyard for quarterbacks.

    Just another bust ?

    Going way back, Jim Plunkett was considered a bust in the first half of his career. Drafted #1 overall, in his second season, Plunkett threw 8 TD's and 25 INT's. In his first 7 seasons, he had a sub 50% completion percentage and his teams never had a winning record. But after he got to the...

    Jamal

    During the course of my 69 trips around the sun, I've had a number of life changing events that I've had to deal with that's greater than or equal to an injury that prevented a person from doing something they love.

    Jamal

    Adams' "over the top talent" was one dimension. He was great at rushing the passer, setting a record for sacks in one season by a safety, but he was a liability in coverage and was anything but a ball hawk, having footballs bounce off his face mask. Additionally, in order for him to play to...

    Me3 starting to lower his goals

    I agree that Russ needs a hefty serving of humble pie, but I don't agree with you about the off-field distractions. Sure, he's goofy/cringy, obsessive about his image and would be better served just to lay low for a while. But I don't think teams look at it as if it's a huge problem. He isn't...
