Jesus was 30 when he got drafted to save humanity.
I meant to say why not how lmao
Oh that's better.
how does it work?
I call bullshit.
I CAN NOT FUCKING WAIT FOR FOOTBALL AHHHHHHH
I've been seeing some comparison between Tannehill and Sanchez. That's so ridiculous it blows my mind. I asked one guy about it and he told me it was because they were "both drafted too high". Today one of my favorite draft guys had a string of tweets about this subject and he really nailed it. If you're not familiar with Twitter, read from the bottom tweet up.
i compare mark sanchez to
she's so sexy
Fly to New York and tell her you're Chandler Harnish. I don't think she'd know the difference.
she actually does standup idot
your face does stand up
Man, I didn't realize Tannehill ran such a pro offense in college. They literally ran a west coast system with read option sprinkled in. One of the things that stuck out for me in his Gruden camp was when Gruden told Tannehill that he was really the only guy to run the type of out routes and 7-step drops you see in the pros. He may be more NFL ready than I initially gave him credit for. It'll all come down to how he adjusts to the speed of the NFL.
Yes, that's it, start deluding yourself now that he will help the Dolphins in any way.
Explain to me why he is a bad prospect.
I didn't say "bad prospect". It's amusing to me that, by PURE coincidence (lol) you are suddenly hyping Tannehill because the Dolphins picked him. You're using a "Gruden camp" as a measure of talent? Come on.
I pretty much agree that he appears to be Sanchez RIGHT NOW. Obviously, draft day knowledge doesn't mean much, since Tom Brady went in the 6th round. Point being, I was/am amused that you're like "hey, Tannehill is a really good dude" and what a pure luck coincidence of happenstance, he's the QB your favorite team drafted.
None of us know how he will actually turn out, but I'm Missouri (the "show me" state) right now ... I need to be convinced, and not just by "Gruden camp" and strategically-picked highlight reels on YouTube.
This was long before the draft. At this point I was on the Weeden bandwagon, not Tannehill.
Also, jesus fuck Sanchez is NOTHING like Tannehill. They are very different types of QBs.
Everyone knows the best QB drafted was Russel Wilson.
Vilma out for the year because of the bounty scanda. 3 more suspended. 2 don't play for the saints anymore. New Trolleans Saints?
I liked your post, then unliked it once I realized the Packers just got trolled because some shit from 3 years ago is getting their newly signed free agent defensive linemen suspended for 8 games. They really should've resolved this shit before free agency, or at least the NFL should've warned teams in talks with these players to hold off on their decisions until discipline was complete. No way Ted Thompson would've gone after Hargrove if he knew he couldn't help the team for half of the year. That's already like 25% of his contract.
double edit: ok, apparently he had protections written into his contract in case he caught backdraft from this scandal, so the Packers might not be hosed here.
Surely there will be some sort of compensation that saints will be made to pay for this. If it were eagles affected i'd be just as angry.
Junior Seau killed himself
did he say "ow"
I don't even think Hargrove is that good, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
He was going to be an upgrade over fuckin... Mike Neal and Jarius Wynn, lol. Packers were thiinnnnnn on the defensive line.
I guess their draft picks should still get there.
8th member from the '94 Chargers to die before 45. Shits crazy.
Holy fuck. He was my favorite sports figure when I was a kid.
I have no idea where I stand on the topic of violence/punishment/rule changes/etc.
We clearly know more about the effects of concussions on long term health now than we did even ten years ago. That said, the game has always been CLEARLY violent and the players have always been compensated nicely. I guess the logical thing to do is sort of what is being done now, and that's heavy fines for head hunting and suspensions for repeat offenders.
How does this type of thing affect boxers? I would imagine it would have to be worse for them...or at least just as bad. Have these effects been seen at similar rates with retired boxers?
Tons of information on this site. I only read one article, but it looks like CTE is well-known in boxers. So far they can only diagnose it in autopsy, and part of the study involves trying to determine if changes can be found on MRI, etc that would enable diagnosis in a living person.
I guess ultimately it's going to be up to the players whether they think the pay is worth the potential effects. I'd see it being more of a concern at the college and high school level, where players aren't compensated but are still being subjected to potential effects that can be long- or short-term. If it becomes general knowledge that football leads to these problems, players and schools are going to have a hard time getting insurance coverage.
There's no reason college players couldn't be paid...at major college programs at least.
suggs tears achilles, probably out for the year
...you would think so.
... but don't worry, there are plenty of lawyers!
They forgot pink socks as a positive.
And being black.
No, he said "positive."
Yeah, for the most part, black quarterbacks are bad.
