  1. I, too, voted wrong, read the thread title and not the question. I dont think anyone gets fired today.
  2. Defensive line in a close one over cornerbacks, if only because I expected our corners to be very good from day 1.
  3. Daboll's a fine coach. Giants got a good one. But Im overall happy with Saleh to date and wouldnt swap the two.
  4. So all we need to do is switch conferences? Easy peasy.
  5. RIP... such a tragedy. He was always such a fun guy to watch and listen to. 61 is way too young. Massive heart attack
  6. Clots are a scary thing - I've been taking Eliquis for the last 9 months or so to prevent them since being diagnosed with Afib, to prevent the chance of blood clots causing issues. Hopefully he can make a full recovery and get back to playing.
  7. I give you credit for answering the OPs question seriously.
  8. The orderlies probably intercept the invitations before he gets them, in his defense.
  9. I was hoping he would stay and continue to elevate football at HBCUs. For all his talk, JSU was a just stepping stone to bigger and better things, and I feel bad for the kids that signed up to play at JSU for Prime Time. But that's the way it is in college football I suppose. Can't blame the guy too much for making a career move to a power 5 program, even one of the worst around. Like he said "...in coaching, you are elevated, or you get terminated" so you have to keep looking for that next bigger opportunity.
  10. Yes he did. Its the life of high draft picks and the salary structure. Teams feel pressure to throw these guys to the wolves day 1 to maximize the return on their top 5 draft picks' first contract. Its not the right approach, IMO, but it is what it is, and many teams do it. Some guys make it, and thrive, some guys have initial bumps in the road that first year (Allen, Tua) and then figure it out. Some guys struggle and flop.
  11. I watched it, and he very much insinuated that the move to White was to "appease Jets fans and sports radio". He also points to wins/losses, which is a lazy way to analyze a QBs performance, and he makes a statement that Wilson would have done "almost as well" against the Bears and won "28-10" which is easy to say because it obviously can't be proved either way. I can say Mike White would have beaten the Pats, but its just as dumb to say. So yeah, garbage takes and garbage video, and I'm annoyed at myself for giving him another click.
  12. But hey, DWC is a Mike White expert because living in Florida, Tampa Bay to be exact, he "watched almost every USF game (right here in Tampa) and for 2 years, (he) witnessed a kid QB who stink due to atrocious decision making." Meaning, I suppose, the 15 starts in 2 years before transferring to Western Kentucky. One of which was 5 starts as a true freshman in 2013. But yeah, DWC was scouting him 9 years ago for sure.
  13. Exactly. That's my biggest issue with platforms like Twitter, and especially the current not-so-moderated version of Twitter. It gives people like DWC a platform to do one or the other of the two things you mentioned, and then I have to see it in my feed as people re-tweet the nonsense. Online nutjobs "dunking" on each other, for real or as a bit.
  14. A fight where no one wins, just two big losers for engaging with each other. This is example 1 of why Twitter should just die.
  15. I hit on the Jets and the over on wins as well, and hit on Garrett Wilson on the over for TDs at 3.5 (thank you Mike White), and would have assuredly hit on Breece and the over on rushing yards if he didn't get hurt. They have to beat Det and Jax. Miami with Tua will be tough. Buffalo again will be tough. Seattle and Minn are no pushovers; both will be tight games. Minn this week is pretty damn huge on the road to 10-11 wins. Win that one, Det, and Jax, and things look good.
  16. “Making the easy plays look easy” is possibly the most telling low key indictment of Wilson’s performances by comparison, and is all that needs to be said. On to the Vikings. Bigger test for this offense.
  17. Amazing how some people will twist themselves into a pretzel to exonerate Wilsons poor play.
  18. Selling low on an asset is usually a bad strategy. They gambled he could rebuild his value and lost but they still had two starting quality tackles plus Mitchell, without Becton. Injuries have killed the line.
  19. https://twitter.com/cj_uzomah/status/1594511282786516992?s=20&t=_WCjT2lty-QSfsTS6TnThA This is what a leader says. Short and simple.
  20. Its hard to evaluate the guy fairly when with the current level of QB play, but he still doesn't catch with his hands, and jumped at least once to catch a ball that he didn't have to jump for. He came back on and made a nice play on Wilson's underthrown back foot throw that got caught in the wind, and was wide open on that one play that had Wilson connected is probably a TD. But then drops catchable ones. He can block, but at times it looks like he doesn't have the instincts to match his physical traits. I think upside/best case is a 2/3 WR with a good QB. Wilson, Mims, Moore and Berrios should be a good enough WR group in time, given decent QB play.
  21. A leader stands up there and says "this was on me, I'm going to work my ass off and fix it". Even if you don't believe it, you say it. It was a complete missed opportunity for him to step up, and extremely disheartening. Take the heat in the press conference, and the team rallies around him. Now you get the opposite.
