  1. Should we vote or something first? I think if we could block for them we would find out they are not the problem. They could be quite capable given a shot behind a better line.
  2. I think it’s kinda like OJ finding the real killers. Lies ya gotta tell……. .
  3. I’m sure he had every opportunity to bail out, but he wanted back in. Sometimes people need to be protected from themselves. I fear this will not be the last time he is concussed. Just like at Alabama, he’s not as athletic as he thinks he is. He is easily caught and tossed like a rag doll. That is NOT good when NFL players are doing the tossing.
  4. I don’t suppose a trainer has ever been voted MVP before……
  5. I think they remember the opener from last year. Revenge can be a good motivator.
  6. Well, there you go! We know who was at fault! Your fine is in the mail.
  7. That does seem to be the intent. The concept of starters being better than the backups seems easy enough. Is he a Miami fan, I’m guessing?
  8. Should he use ice or heat for those back spasms??? Last year we were as unfortunate in close games as we were fortunate the year before that. Going back, it averages out. .
  9. That sounds like a close call. You should go back to cutting your own hair like Mark Davis.
  10. I sucked it up and went almost 3 hours for a wedding where I knew nobody but my wife. Her childhood friend’s son got married. I deserved SOMETHING good for enduring that without a complaint.
  11. Did you see the interview with Dan Patrick before the draft? And his dad in the wings? Odd, to put it mildly.
  12. This really SUCKS that we messed up the whole “we can’t win close games” theory.
  13. Wait…..that can’t be right. I already paid a fortune for his autographed spleen! It’s in my trophy case!
  14. Are you worried that we won a one score game? That might be a concern for many who are very certain of themselves within parameters determined exclusively by them.
  15. IF we lose, and 6-8 if you go back just a little further. As far as I’m concerned, this team is 0-1 in one score games and lost that one in a flukey way. We used to win small, and lose big. Everyone complained about blow out losses. Now we win big and lose small. I’ll take it.
  16. It’s entirely possible that it is both. 🤷‍♂️
  17. I generally agree with the bold, and that is why I never give to strange requests from groups I’ve never heard of. I basically have three categories. Like @Shaw66 I’ll throw $100 at the Andy Dalton Foundation or for Luke Knox without blinking. If we are talking serious money, there is more scrutiny. Then there is the “exception category” where I just know it’s a good cause without too much research. My wife was on the Board at SJ Jude Children’s Hospital for years. They are in that category, and I’m sure we can all name a few others. We have ours, and I’m sure others have theirs. Still, big money means you’d better know who you are dealing with.
  18. Huh? Did Tua get hurt or something? Is it his back again? 😋
  19. You would think “what happened?” would be pretty high on the list of boxes to check. “Look, we can show you!” Anyone who failed to share the extent of his injury and the resulting stumbles is just as guilty as the doctors. The “protocol” seems to be missing some common sense ingredients.
  20. It’s going to rain cats and dogs. Literally. The SPCA is all over it, but our game weather curse is a force to reckon with.
  21. This is largely why I have no interest in sending money to his foundation. I wish him well and hope for a full recovery and a long healthy life, but he largely brought this on himself. I don’t care what locker room culture says. THIS is why they have such strict rules regarding hits to the head and concussions. Sometimes you have to help yourself. I know there are plenty of occasions where something more mild slips by, but this was not just everyone else failing him (which they did). He failed himself and I hope he learns from it as well as other players who see this happen. It’s no joke.
  22. Serious question, and maybe it’s been answered before, but: Did the team Doc or the independent Doc even SEE him stumbling? If they missed seeing it and/or were hiding in the shade and AC somewhere, the system failed, but at least then I can understand it. If they SAW him staggering and still cleared him, their license should be in jeopardy. I’m no doctor, but that was no back injury.
  23. They want to develop the short passing game as evidenced by the the run they took at FA McKissic from Washington and drafting Cook in the 2nd round. Devin gets a lot of touches that way, but that is only one measure of a RB. As far as judging our RB’s in the run game, I think that’s very difficult to do because the OLine isn’t doing their job. Hopefully we get healthy, Kromer starts to make some progress, and we can stop ripping our hair out! Bottom line……..Devin is no Benjamin Button! .
  24. We knew it was a tough stretch to start. We did NOT know we’d be decimated by injuries. I could live with it. Get healthy and peak in the playoffs. That is how you win that trophy.
