  1. 3 receptions for 59 yards. 19.7 yard average today versus Raiders. Also made the game highlight reel. FML
  2. Darren Lee blew that coverage. They are lbs so they are in zone coverage. It doesn't matter who lines up over the wr.
  3. Chiefs are running directly at sheldon richardson. They're just taking him to school out there. Wtf happened to this kid? He doesn't even offer a pass rush any more
  4. so like 1 in 7 is successful? clearly thats a risk you'd rather not take if you've already got the game in hand.
  5. Everything said about him so far is true to some degree, both on the positive and negative side. I lean towards seeing more promise than bust at this point, because he's making as many plays as he's missing and he's flashed at times. And he has literally had one camp and two games. He should be a trainwreck. Like Pryor was early on. Like winters was early on. Like most rookies are early on. But he's not a trainwreck. He's just not very good yet. But he's certainly ahead of the curve for a rookie if you ask me.
  6. The Oline could have been the seasons Achilles heel. As it turns out, it's been pretty solid, though I think we're giving the a bit more credit than they deserve simply because we expected less. Winters is the biggest surprise to me. He can pull and block downfield far better than Colon was able. He's developed nicely. Fortes exceptional vision and burst is a big reason the line looks as good as it does right now. As for right tackle, we need one. The two rotating right now are shaky at best.
  7. How bout richardson shows up at some point?
  8. Marshall has to sit. Anderson, you're up.
  9. Fitz has been rushing his reads. Looks panicked. Hopefully he settles down and trusts his line.
  10. Such good news. Better than a super bowl honestly. I'd rather know you and your family are whole than cheer on a bunch of guys in green uniforms. I wish you the best and thank you for sharing your struggle with us. It puts all of the Jets aggravation into perspective. My best to you and your wife, Max.
  11. The closest tilt comes to football game is that it is a synonym in Olde English for a jousting contest. I majored in Literature and creative writing, published a novel and am well-versed in the English language. The use of a complicated term when a simple one will do is ostentatious and cumbersome to the reader. You learn this usually sophomore year after using a thesaurus all freshman year and getting criticized by your professors for the word-vomit young writers usually produce while thinking they sound uber-smart.
  12. Oh, Gronk's out for this weekend's tilt? Great. I will be watching other tilts. Jets tilt especially. Can someone explain why we're repeating a weird made-up term for a football game? Is it cooler than saying "game". Because I see this horse sh*t on ESPN all the time and I've decided it's an in-joke to try to get people to say nonsensical things just to fit in with the cool crowd. Tilt. TILT. Can't wait for this Tilt! Gonna be a great tilt! I'm going to leave now. Because this stupid word infuriates me. I asked my doorknob if she thought I was overreacting and she agreed it seemed like a BS, made up thing.
  13. 1. No refuge could save the hireling and slave. Hireling = mercenary. Slave may have any of several meanings including those basically taken and forced to fight for the British Navy: "The United States declared war for several reasons, including trade restrictions brought about by the British war with France, the impressment of as many as 10,000 American merchant sailors into the Royal Navy". 2. This is not the National Anthem as we know it. It is a poem by Francis Scott Key regaling events of the War of 1812. 3. Slavery has absolutely nothing to do with people kneeling at NFL games (though I understand that's not your argument). 4. We stand for the Anthem to honor the sacrifices, hard work, ingenuity and unity of a nation. Those attributes belong to blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Christians, Jews, Muslims, the wealthy and the less fortunate. The nation has evolved over generations and its been generations of Americans that have accelerated that evolution. Abolitionists, women's suffrage movements, civil rights leaders...the list goes on. We stand for the anthem to honor our soldiers who have fought and too often fallen in the defense of this country. And those soldiers have been black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Wealthy and less fortunate. 5. Kneeling for the anthem is a choice. Its a freedom many other countries on this planet would never allow. But its a freedom available to any American. Kaepernick and his copy-cats are misguided. No one thinks this country is perfect. No one thinks our history is perfect. But it is a country by, for, and of the people. All of the people. Turning up your nose at the National Anthem is no different than turning your back on the people who've given a hell of a lot more than Colin Kaepernick to make the United States what it is, imperfect as that might be.
  14. Ahh, thank you. Forgot we didn't have a fifth. That makes it a little easier to swallow.
