#120010 Future QB backup/mentor

Posted by Spen on 07 January 2019 - 09:18 PM

I think Jackson will work extremely hard to succeed but it won't be easy or problem free. Then we've got Preston harping on the idea that accuracy can't be taught. I don't know about that but if Lamar ends next season injured or unimproved we'll be looking for a franchise qb yet again.

I read one national article a few weeks ago that broke down some of Lamar's problems and the writer was adamant a lot of them were do to his mechanics. The writer thought with time and coaching those problems could be greatly reduced. The article also said how Lamar really works hard so I'm hopeful.

#119822 Red hot Seat

Posted by Spen on 22 December 2018 - 04:43 AM

I dont understand the timing of this move at all.
Why wouldnt the team have waited until after tomorrow night or the final game to make a decision.
How does this look if we end up 8-8 which is quite possible.
Not a fan of the decision, at least not right now.

Because they think the problem is lack of talent and not coaching? And they play hard every week?

Yeah. The kneeling has nothing to do with it.

I agree man. The kneeling only bothers bigots and people uncomfortable with minority athletes standing up against systematic oppression.
Fuck bigots.

#113732 Just put my PSL's up for sale

This is becoming a "Last Straw" for me too.
If they protest Sunday then I'm throwing my jersey on the field.
I don't care what they are protesting.
I have a high stress job, I work massive hours and I am raising 3 kids on my own.
Football is the one non serious thing I have. It's a hobby. An escape. I need a break and I'm willing to pay for it.  Football has always been fun and enjoyable for me but now I can't listen to the radio or read about football without wading through mountains of material on this player's protest issue....which has become so muddy that nobody knows what it's about now.
This world is loaded with serious issues. There is a ton of hate, injustice, ....massive harmfull unconscious human behavior. If football was 7 days a week, we wouldn't run out of things to protest.
Football brings us together. Remember this?
We came together as a community.
It felt wonderful. Togetherness always feels wonderful.
Now this has us all divided and isolated.
All the fans should stay downstairs for the anthem.
Let the millionaires kneel to an empty stadium.
I hope they come out and simply stand like they have for years.
That will mean they are done with this.
That would be good and wise.

I'm sorry you don't care what they are protesting. I'm sorry having millionaires standing is seemingly more important to you than someone protesting what they feel is oppression and cultural racism.

At worst, as long as it's peaceful and non disruptive I could care less what the players or guy next to me does during the anthem. But I respect what Colin did and what the players did Sunday. And I respect their right.

Even if I didn't, there is no way a peaceful protest is anywhere near as serious as a violent crime. Not even close. So shame on anyone who happily cheered for criminals but this is the last straw. Maybe if during the anthem Suggs would have threatened to pour bleach on his baby instead of kneeling none of this would have happened.

I actually have many reasons for this, especially my health issues. But, this disrespect for our national anthem, flag, and military was the last straw.
I still don't even understand why they are doing this. Just play freak'in football. You're paid millions to do just that.
BTW, I AM ex-military and I love my country. It's not perfect but we are a beacon for freedom and hope. Just ask the millions who have emigrated here from elsewhere.

Nothing more American then dissent. I'm sorry you don't truly respect the first amendment and I'm sorry you don't understand why they did it. I'm sorry players have personalities and opinions and don't just play freak'in football.

Good game I think we all can agree the NFL needs to fix the officiating. It's all around bad.

I'm just glad you're allowed to post here again.

LOL -  Well, with your usual grumpiness and not seeing your facial and body
language I was just calling it out to be sure.

Thank goodness. I can't imagine being in the same room as you.

Remember Warrick Dunn? Anyone?

If you do, you remember for some stent where he was one of the more dominant running backs in the National Football League for the better part of a decade, but then did something far more important than any single thing he did on the field during his career after it ended; with little to nobody taking notice.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Atlanta Falcon started his very own charity, the Warrick Dunn Foundation, which to this date has bought 145 homes to single-parent families since 1997.
