  1. Yep. Just making light of Deion's reputation in his playing days as a guy who avoided tackles if he could.
  2. Gil Brandt also had Manziel as his top overall prospect for 2014, even calling him one of the best players he's ever seen in his life.
  3. I suppose it might depend on your TV/radio, etc. but in the past when there's an analyst team I don't care for, I've tried to mute the TV and turn on WGR 550. The unfortunate thing is that WGR's transmission is faster than the TV, sometimes by a whole play. That was my experience though, give it a whirl yourself and see what happens.
  4. Perry has worn it most of his career and wears it in honor of his family, or something. He was surprised to find out it was available. Maybe it's been available for a while but nobody's ever asked for it? Either way, whatever. OJ is a turd.
  5. Haha. I think Marrone said after a game that he was so worked up over something that he would go home and "probably not even pet my dog." Moody guy, that Marrone. And Zeke is a great big turd sammich. I sincerely hope he smacks his toes off of every piece of furniture he owns. I hope his car runs out of washer fluid at a really inopportune time. I hope the postal services misplaces his packages. I hope he drops his phone in the terlet. I hope his shoes fit poorly so that when he walks he gets a giant blister on his heel. Minor inconveniences because, I, too, like to live dangerously. I don't think he's "troubled" so much as he's arrogant and irresponsible.
  6. He seems to think all his film reviews and number crunching make him infallible, but he's not. This instance is proof he either doesn't know what he's talking about, or has just drummed up some BS to get his name out there in discussions. I dunno if he's familiar with the super simple, age-old formula that you put your best 11 on the field each game, and the best quarterback on LA's roster is.... Phillip Rivers, surprise, surprise. So he'll be starting (obviously) and this nimrod will hopefully fade into oblivion sooner rather than later.
  7. What a buncha crap. The roster has been improved and these dingbats think the team will do WORSE than last season because of it? GTFOH. McDermott is developing a reputation as a coach who can get a lot out of a little. In 2017 he had a real mixed bag of a roster, it definitely wasn't put together how he wanted yet they made the playoffs. They do what they have to do to get their franchise QB and after some demoralizing losses to start the season, the team remained competitive and pulled out six games when everyone knew it was the total rebuild year and figured four wins would be lucky, let alone six. And now the "analysts" mark them down to draft fourth overall next year. That'd mean they'd finish 4-12 or worse (most likely). I hate to sound like a homer but I just don't see this team doing worse than last season. The defense was a strength last season (mostly) and they only got stronger. The offense and OL will take some time to come together but I can certainly see them making some strides in the right direction. You have these guys saying they'll go 4-12 or whatever while other analysts have said "anything less than a playoff appearance would be a disappointment." Nimrods.
  8. Whaley knew in January 2017 he was gone after the draft. This seems like more of a surprise. I hadn't seen any speculation that NYJ was going to shake up their front office.
  9. Good series, uninteresting team (right now, anyway).
  10. There was a scouting report I read on him shortly after he was drafted and it made a really good argument on one of his main flaws. It said that the person he trusts the most on the field is himself. Meaning, when things break down or don't go as planned, odds are he's just going to run. Never seemed able to toss up a 50/50 ball and trust that the receiver would come down with it. He seemed to always play hesitant and overly-cautious. It didn't help at all having Doug Marrone and Nate Hackett constantly telling him, "Hey, if the throw isn't there just run, three yards and cloud of dust because we coach football like it's 1978!"
  11. Bruce is his godfather, I believe. EJ's dad and Bruce are like lifelong best buds.
  12. Don't feel bad, man. I went on eBay and bought a bunch of autographed cards of his after he was drafted here. For what they're worth now I'd need 200 of 'em to offset the loss, haha.
  13. Because he's really "just another guy" that can do some things well but there's nothing he's exceedingly great at. Players like that will often be replaced by a younger, cheaper option. Plus, Oakland is rebuilding so a lot of guys signed prior to the current front office are gonna be shown the door. Bills needed a guy with some veteran experience to help out the young group they have. He's probably a good locker room guy, too.
