  1. I think it's a logical theory. Right out of the gate, Josh formed a tight bond with Darnold. That bothered a lot of people (here), but I've thought it was awesome from day one. I think, in addition to the passion for the game that you pointed out, it's also a sign of maturity.
  2. Is it me, or do the Bills do more training with other teams' players now than they ever did? Not sure if this is something that's always been commonplace, but I don't recall hearing as much about it in past years. Personally, I love it.
  3. And it's my opinion that for some of these athletes that the "special resources," are other people taking their tests/doing their assignments and/or boosters paying professors to ensure their grades are high enough to allow them to play. To me, that is a huge problem.
  4. I'm not saying that being an NFL player means you're dumb. The league is loaded with smart dudes. But, being the smart man that YOU are, there is no goddamn way that you believe that all of these guys get into college legitimately qualifying for entry. Me? I call it like I see it. There is not a chance in hell that someone who can't put together a complete sentence in his mother tongue had the grades necessary to get into/graduate from any college.
  5. I don't think a complete separation is the answer. I do, however, think that student-athletes should be accepted into school by the same criteria all other students are. And I think some sort of D league for those who can't get into school for academic reasons, but have pro-level athletic talent. It's a win-win for the athlete and for the scholar who might otherwise be on the outside looking into the school that had no room for them.
  6. Maybe people who aren't smart enough to go to college shouldn't prevent others, who are, from going to college - just to play football and make other people rich. Mind you - I don't fault the players. They're being used.
  7. Biggest weakness: Doesn't have an Offensive Coordinator who designs an offense based on Allen's strengths (and weaknesses).
  8. I think you know as well as I do that most of the players' degrees/education (I use those terms loosely) were not earned and will do nothing for them after football.
  9. And to think ... not one player is getting paid a dime. That's the bigger problem, IMO.
  10. Don't forget about this one ... https://tinyurl.com/y32lcs59
