  1. I don't doubt for an instant that Mr. Brown wants nothing more in this world than to win a professional championship. I guess were fixing to see what that entails for Mr. Thrifty.
  2. That ain't a bad idea, but everyone runs in undies now adayas, and the ability to scoot like a rocket is just, to me, a part of the mix, the amalgum, the algebra, of a prospect. To me it ain't the be all end all, but in some warrooms their captains get weak in the knees, and blitehring when it comes to eye popping track times, and it will make them over look stuff, and gamble. Scoots won't make a knuckle head a superstar, but they will make a heady player one.
  3. Just let it go Chief. Be easy breezy. Ain't about nothing other than the clicks. Thats my take.
  4. My only hestiancy and worry is that the Bengals, wanting to protect their prize disallow him from being himself and neuter him.
  5. I had the disctinct pleasure some time ago to view Mr. FulRoc up close and personal down around Kenwood area, long after he quit playing. Said hey (he was buisness casual). I was in stuttering awe. After the meet and greet, i'm about my way, and i thought to myself, this lily white boy don't have the mansauce (as of yet) to be freight trained by that 240 pound hunk of fast moving concrete. No thank you. He was intimidating even then. Yes sir. No sir. Very nice to meet you.
  6. Thats a nice summary Mr. Uncle Earl. I was mansplaining (while drunk) and it felt good. Thanks for stealing my thunder.
  7. Joe couldn't make the grade at OSU and chose to turn tail, like the yella bellied coward he is, to LSU and injury lucked his way into a NFL ready roster that chewed up future physicists and would have done so without him. Gimme the tide. Saban forever. <<<<<<<Ninja goes here.
  8. Takeo Spikes in facts. Pollack in hype.
  9. I think it all depends. For a corner, say like Deion Sanders, elite speed, boost and intellect is what made him special. The ability to backpedal, turn the hips and burn, at an exceptional rate will make a heady defender other worldy in the moment to moment bang bang. For a wideout top end speed is part of the grabbag in scoring, but it's other physical stuff, like hand play, feints, wingspan, and first steps(lateral and verticle acceleration) which creates the tidbits of separation that makes the grade, for their position, in the pro game.
  10. For me hand size, physiologically speaking, isn't about keeping the ball safe (thats mostly smarts and feel) but rather the last link in the chain of high end throw velocity. You can have the physicals to whip your arm with power and speed, but if you don't have the lanky fingers to wrap around and sure grip the ball, allowing the player to deposit, at the release point, all that force generated the athelete will have to be a little more floaty and careful, otherwise the ball will be errant, or worse slip out. He'll have to take something off to maintain control. It's the big ol wingspread of the hands, the final link, that allows the player to really rare back and throw ropes. I think we can all see this. He ain't no bad mamba jamba shooting lazer beams all over the field. We won't be getting a Geoff George or Carson Palmer, Zip wise, with our first pick. But then again neither won anything of renown. What i like about this guy is his guts, his demeanor, certifiable accuracy, his out of the pocket chicanery, and especially his foresight. From what i've seen he's got a knack for putting the ball, routinely, where it ought to rightly be given how the play unfolds. It's like he's a step ahead, and on the right spot when it gets there. I'm all in.
  11. Someone shocking -can't believe they are there - or best available Linebacker.
  12. This small hands business has put the stern fear in me. I'm out.
  13. Lets say he's fit and raring to go. You know this, then what do you do?
  14. Renewed in body and mind. Recovery from injury and a positive (chipper) mental attitude. When it's all in good order the guy is still a top tier talent. If you were the decision person - what would you do with him?
  15. They go all in. Sign the last big deal. AJ is renewed with the New Kid. They win three super bowls before he retires, and heads to canton. Bengal for life.
