  1. Hang in there brother. You're going to make it!
  2. December promise you gave unto me December whispers of treachery December clouds are now covering me December songs no longer I sing
  3. It looks like they will soon be obsolete. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/ncaa-can-no-longer-enforce-nil-rules-after-federal-judge-grants-injunction-231205241.html
  4. That depends on when Taylor Swift and Kelce break up, no?
  5. One fine morning, girl, I'll wake up Wipe the sleep from my eyes Go outside and feel the sunshine Then I know I'll realize That as long as you love me, girl, we'll fly And on that mornin' when I wake up I'll see your face inside a cloud See your smile inside a window Hear your voice inside a crowd Calling, "Come with me baby and we'll fly"
  6. Well you take my silver dollar, take those silver dimes, Fix it up together in some alligator wine. I can hear the drums, voodoo all night long, Mister Charlie tells me I can't do nothing wrong. Jubba jubba, wolly bully, looking high, looking low, Gonna scare you up and shoot ya, Mister Charlie told me so.
  7. Winwood, Trucks, and Clapton for starters.....
  8. Ooh wah, ooh wah cool, cool kitty Tell us about the boy from New York City Ooh wah, ooh wah c'mon kitty Tell us about the boy from New York City He's kind of tall He's really fine Some day I hope to make him mine, all mine And he's neat And oh so sweet And just the way he looked at me He swept me off my feet
  9. I pray that God makes your surgery a complete success and that your recovery is swift.
  10. The sentence that you quoted me on (Not beating them in the playoffs doesn't mean we're not better) was NOT mine. Not sure how or why you did this.
  11. Point taken but McDermott is not on the same planet with Reid, and never will be. Many argue with me which is great, but my contention is that McDermott is a so-so coach and has far too much power wrt the draft and free agency.
  12. And the seasons, they go round and round And the painted ponies go up and down We're captive on the carousel of time We can't return, we can only look Behind from where we came And go round and round and round, in the circle game
  13. He got MUCH better last season than he was when he first arrived. Two seasons ago I heard one ex-player say that he lacked effort but last year he was very good. He has great hands and makes the tough catches. Again, playing with Milroe makes it harder to judge him. I'm not hating on Milroe but I'm hoping that Coach DeBoer will have a full QB competetion this season.
  14. Hey, have you ever tried Really reaching out for the other side? I may be climbing on rainbows But baby, here goes Dreams, they're for those who sleep Life is for us to keep And if you're wondering what this song is leading to I want to make it with you I really think that we could make it, girl
  15. LOL I think that Terrion Arnold is a special player. This was also an Alabama team that was different from the past few seasons. There was no Waddle, Davonta, Ridley, Ruggs, Jameson Williams, etc. That said, Burton is a player.
  16. Disclaimer: I am not posing as or pretending to be a scout or some sort of "expert." I do just watch and tape all of their games, and for this reason alone I feel as if I might have some insight as to how they may fit into the NFL (and hopefully the Bills in some cases). OK, here goes....... 1) Chris Braswell - Edge Chris is listed at 6'3/255. He doesn't look that heavy but he might be because he is as strong as an ox. I have seen him more than once shove a offensive lineman into a QB and knock them both over. He is a vicious pass rusher. The combines will tell us a lot about his speed. I saw him try to cover on a few rare occasions with mixed results. He is a bull rusher, not a cover lb. He didn't play much before this season whereas he sat behind Will Anderson and Dallas Turner. I see him as going somewhere between very late first and early 3rd. 2) Kool Aid McKinstry - CB Kool Aid is tall and lanky at 6'1"/195. Good but not great tackler. Good speed, covers well and is consistent. Saban took him off of punt return duties because a few times he called for fair catches when there was room to run, and fumbled a few others. He looks to be more of a zone corner imo. Based on the popularity of corners in the draft, he will probably go somewhere in round one. Is he Patrick Surtain? No. 3) Will Reichard - PK Very consistent and does well in pressure situations. Not THE greatest distance range but he has improved in each of his years at Bama, and holds the NCAA record for most points. I think that he will have much success in the NFL but it is hard to predict where kickers will be drafted. Saban loves the kid. 4) Jase McClellan - RB Good, consistent, versatile RB. He doesn't have outstanding strength or speed but he is not slow or weak. His biggest asset (imo) is his ability as a receiver. That said, he really is an all purpose back who plays hard and is a decent blocker. Jase is a late round pick imo. 5) Jermaine Burton - WR Burton played two seasons at Bama (transfered from UGA). Jermaine has good speed, very good hands and seems to get open with ease. He would appear to be a terrific target for Josh. I think that his stats were hampered by having Milroe at QB. Milroe did not make quick decisions and runs quite often, and I suspect that Burton was frustrated at times. Now, a couple of people who claim to have inside info told me that he is a bit of a head case. I have no idea if this is true but this kid can play. Would I like to see him on the Bills? Absolutely, and I don't see him listed as a first round pick in most mock drafts. I think that he will last until round 2 but who really knows? 6) Dallas Turner - Edge Very talented, extremely consistent player. Smart, strong, fast, and VERY quick pass rusher. He can even cover. He didn't miss a beat after Will Anderson left for the NFL and will probably continue to improve. Early to mid first round pick imo. 7) JC Latham - OT JC was projected to play LT this season but his weight balooned up and he played the right side. He has AMAZING strength. I am talking about insane amounts of weights that he pushes around and he is still agile. An ex-Alabama player told me that he thinks that the weight gain is simply due to over eating. This will probably cost him millions of dollars in terms of his draft slot. I'm a bit put off by overweight RTs. I guess I am still recovering from Mike Williams syndrome lol. That said, he was crushing folks on the right side. 😎 Terrion Arnold - CB 😎 Terrion is a great player imo. He covers, blitzes, is strong, and defends the run. He gets less discussion than Kool Aid but I think he is a better player. He is listed at 6'0"/196 but plays bigger. He is said to be very smart and a hard worker. Saban loves this kid. He will probably gain some weight and muscle in the NFL and could wind up at safety, I don't know. What I do strongly believe is that some NFL team is going to be very lucky to draft this kid. He might last until round 2. 9) Justin Oboigbe - DE Solid, much improved player in 2023. Big strong kid. Held the edge well and good pass rusher. Combines will be interesting. Listed at 6'5'/295. He was hurt in 2022, came back strong last season. Very interesting player, will probably go in the 3rd or 4th round. 10) Jaylen Key - S Only played one season at Bama and was not a starter. When he did play he was very good. He will be a late round pick or a UDFA. 11) Trezman Marshall - ILB Good if unspectacular player. Another Georgia transfer. Plays hard, could make an NFL roster.
  17. Raquelle Welch looks so good a man could start crying lol!
  18. Every night I still hear All your sighs, very clear Now love's gone, gone away As I once heard you say Now I've cried just a little 'cause I loved you so And I've died just a little 'cause I had to go Away
  19. #2 by FAR. In modern times, it got really bad when Levy was GM and we never quite recovered. As far as the third choice, our poor drafts were due to stupidity much more than "bad draft luck."
  20. Having the will is key. Some QBs make 50 million per season. In 5 years that is a quarter of a billion dollars, this without the advertisements. That is enough to make many people lose the necessary drive imo. If I had a couple hundred million dollars, I would not want to get hit by Matt Milano. No thank you. This is now starting to effect college players due to NIL. Most college football players come from poor backgrounds. In some cases very poor. I think that this gave many of these kids the ability/desire to do what it takes to succeed. The Georgia QB just bought a Lamborghini. https://www.si.com/college/2024/02/06/georgia-bulldogs-qb-carson-beck-lamborghini-urus-performante Do you think that he will be out partying with lit or let it sit in the driveway? In any event the NFL rule changes really do protect the QB, to the point where they can have longer careers no doubt. I do however think that the huge salaries will keep the numers down wrt QBs over 40. Jmo.
  21. Life's too short to make a mistake Let's think of each other and hesitate Young and impatient we may be There's no need to act foolishly If we part, our hearts won't forget it Years from now we'll surely regret it Give me just a little more time And our love will surely grow Give me just a little more time And our love will surely grow
