    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Yes, your post was snarky & dismissive without addressing anything - or furthering any discussion, obviously. That’s just banter, and I enjoy it. The post you objected to was also “snarky”, but not dismissive of any member of the ES, it was just game banter, there was no need for you to address anyone as you did me, it breaks with the rules of the forum. You mocked me for no reason, a travesty, to be certain ; it’s against ES policy, but it was a demonstration of normal human interaction. What do I do with a post such as yours? You obviously wanted to mock me for the forum to see, so... 1) I report you? That’s ridiculous, I’m a grown human. And I liked that you wanted to engage on that level, it’s fun. 2) I talk trash in return & welcome your banter? Then I get reported & a moderator will talk down to me as if they’re above it all; obviously ignoring the fact that they’re the goobers who created the atmosphere that made @ExoDus84 feel free to mock a fellow ESer in the first place — something that happens in “The Stadium” routinely. Which, again, is fine with me, but you (universal you, not ExoDus) can’t stay within lines that only exist from time to time. 3) I ignore it? Well, humans aren’t going to ignore that over & over. That’s ridiculous. 4) Block you? I don’t want to block a human because they were snarky in a thread or had a problem with me for 2 months... I don’t think what you have to offer is less valuable because you made fun of me in a post.... everyone I enjoy here has given me grief, and I them. Only in the last few months have I learned of the issue with e-banter/reporting etc. Everyone I gain from has been on both sides of posts that break the ES rules, everyone I enjoy here has crushed a post or 73 of mine, and I loved every one of those posts... and I loved responding to them ... I enjoyed getting to know you guys by taking your grief and returning the next day with absolute respect for the next opinion you shared. There is nothing less important than someone making a joke of something I share, but it’s impossible not to interact with... we gain from those interactions — we laugh, we feel guilt, we gain respect for small forgivenesses offered & we embrace the opportunity to extend the same in return. You’re all good people, it’s all just a discussion, all I care about is getting to the best place possible as a group — even if it means I need stay away, I’ll still read the ES ... the group is phenomenal; and forever a work in progress, if we’re lucky. Go Vols - clearly.

    It’s not your nonsense that stalls things, you have the wit of a small rhinoceros; it’s the arbitrary enforcement of rules that creates the problem. Humans aren’t going to ignore silly posts like yours time and time again, but if the banter is reciprocated, it’s a problem. That’s all well and good, & I actually agree with your initial post to me here — the frustration lies in an inability to engage with it ... the rules allow agitators while excluding banter, which is against the nature of the humans, and normal, enjoyable, interaction.

    I didn’t think we could put mods on ignore. My apologies. Kevin Rogers watched his former pupil's plays from his chair in Williamsburg, Virginia, and the retired football coach knew he was seeing something familiar. An LSU wide receiver charged toward a defensive back, turned outside looking for the ball over his outside shoulder, then cut back underneath toward the middle of the field. The route concept registered automatically in Rogers' mind. Stick nod return! The route was straight out of the West Coast offense, which Rogers ran as the offensive coordinator at William & Mary — back when LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady was an assistant on the Tribe's staff from 2013 to 2014. Looked like the kid Rogers once called "Joey" had picked up a thing or two. LSU positioned a tight end on one side of the field, then placed three wide receivers on the other. On the ball's snap, the three receivers ran layered crossing routes toward the middle of the field, each receiver running deeper than the first. Triple cross! Well how about that? Brady had been listening. The camera flickered to the coaches booth in Tiger Stadium, and there Brady was, on national television, helping direct LSU's record-breaking offense in a 42-28 win over Florida with concepts he picked up from his past. Picked up? Shoot, Brady was perfecting those concepts — just as he'd studied them late into the night in dimly-lit coaching offices as a linebackers coach in Williamsburg, as a graduate assistant at Penn State, as an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints. Rogers had it easy as far as Brady's mentors go. Now a color commentator for William & Mary football radio broadcasts, Rogers could watch Brady from the security of his home. When No. 2 LSU (6-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) plays Mississippi State (3-3, 1-2 SEC) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Davis Wade Stadium, the Tigers offense will collide against Bulldogs head coach Joe Moorhead, who taught Brady the run-pass option offense as the offensive coordinator at Penn State. "It's probably advantage Brady," said Rogers, a former offensive coordinator at Notre Dame from 1999 to 2001. "Just because he's going to be able to explain everything they've been doing to their defensive staff at the same time." It was that attention to detail that made it easy for Rogers to recommend Brady to his old colleague, Ed Orgeron, who worked with Rogers at Syracuse in the late 1990s. Orgeron had seen Brady's promise himself. He invited part of the Saints offensive coaching staff to give a presentation in Baton Rouge in the summer of 2018, and Brady impressed the entire LSU coaching staff with his command of schemes.

    There are far too many goofballs on the ES to enjoy talking football with the few who know a bit about it. I had to report my own post, the e-studs get old quickly. Enjoy, my friends, it was fun for a bit.

    The internet must be a nice place for you.

    I can’t weigh in, some charlatan named @ExoDus84 is patrolling these waters. * It’s odd how many goofballs run their yaps on this forum, people who offer nothing, know nothing, and are able to debate nothing competently. Chat about prospects and some e-stud has to chime in with his bs... you internet folks are a trip.

    If your IQ leaked out of my ass, I’d sew my ass shut. FWIW.

    * I missed the first half playing wiffle ball with the kids in the neighborhood, so I’m certain I missed some impressive snaps from Burrow, I certainly don’t aim to be dismissive of whatever it is he did in half one. We’ll find out plenty about him shortly, but Tua isn’t within his reach, that much is obvious... Tua is a different species. I’m an extraordinary wiffle ball player, fwiw.

    Yeah I’m sure they all have Young over Thomas, but not Jeudy.

    I must have put Burrow on at the wrong time, he looks like Minshew-light. If someone grades this guy above Tua they should have their face sewn shut.

    Didn’t get over the top on it, this guy is awful, Tua couldn’t even put his foot down. Some humans with the Jets are infatuated with Thomas.
  12. Did a human just compliment the Broncos for their ability to recognize and coach up QB talent?

    I have only watched 8 seconds of Burrow, but early on I’m not seeing a hint of Tua. I was told Tua looked like trash all week in practice, he’s not well, but Jeudy just cost him a TD. I’m all in on the DeMatha product as well.

    Burrow wouldn’t make a flea on Tua’s arse.
