    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    As I said I would be thrilled to be wrong. And you guys make a good case from a fan's perspective, there was growth but again we are talking a very small sample size of good play and the NFL road is littered with QBs who played well for a short period of time. There is hope, he has the tools and certainly better coaching. Just saying the odds are against it given the miss rate on drafted QBs overall and this was not a highly rated QB to begin with.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    The Tebow reference was specific to the Lions game. And it was accurate. Like Tebow Dwayne absolutely sucked for 57 minutes, missing the easiest TD pass ever by yards. Then he pulled out a win with 2 late field goals (not TDs like Tebow) and only as a result of a great catch by Terry and a turnover by the defense. Another example of the bizarre ratings PFF tends to produce. So this ranking takes on his entire body of work from the moment he took the field as a starter? You saw those games, can you honestly say he looked like the 10th best QB in the league when all his games are included and not just the last few?

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Oh I get the reason for optimism but that's just it, it was a very small sample size on Haskins. Just a word of caution. Personally I don't ever see him being a QB good enough to build around, and as most people understand the better the QB the better your chances for lasting success. A few games at the end of the season won't change my opinion but I'd be thrilled to be wrong and can't hate on fans who are optimistic. He clearly has the arm strength but of course on the list of attributes arm strength is down the list with accuracy near the top.

    I haven't bothered to with All-Access and prefer to watch on the big screen on YouTube. Just surprised those games aren't posted, seems like everything is on YouTube.

    I'm no Allen fan, his ceiling is way too low. But i don't understand how Haskins gets a pass for his inconsistent play because he was a rookie but Allen does not get this same benefit.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I too am not buying the idea that Zampese can be the fix it man. The other night I found the Lions game on YouTube, Haskins' first win. I remember him playing well at the end but this was Tim Tebow without the heroics. Lions handed the game with turnovers but Haskins was missing guys all over the field the entire game. He did hit Terry late on a huge play but he was bailed out by a great catch. I didn't find any complete late season games, I know he played much better at the end of the season. But you just can't succeed if your QB does not hit what he is throwing at, this was always the concern with Dwayne and nothing has changed my mind. So you give him a new offense without a traditional off season, throw him out there with no NFL TE, a bad OL and iffy receivers other than Terry and yeah this won't go well. I honestly expect him to lose his job to Kyle Allen at some point.
  7. Showing the score in that box was one of the greatest things ever introduced in sports broadcasting. When it's not there as I watch games from the past it's noticeable.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    I too have been trying to understand why the lawyer was trying the case on Twitter. I guess this would explain it but seems to me it's the agent's job not the lawyer's to try to save his job.
  9. Sorry I don't buy that assessment from a Giants fan, we no doubt had fans telling them they got a good one in Devon Thomas. After 7 years in the league you are who you are for the most part. And what we have is a player who in 7 years has accumulated career numbers that would match an average WR2 for a single season.
  10. I'm not sure I understand this comment, are you saying assault and firing a gun in an apartment is not enough for Ron "New Culture" Rivera to cut him? We've seen far better players released for less. He is just not worth the trouble, if there was ever a way to send an inexpensive (in terms of player capital) message that nonsense will no longer be tolerated this would be it.
  11. i don't remember ever pistol whipping and firing a gun near my best friend. I sure don't remember firing a gun in an apartment which could have dire consequences to neighbors. WTF is wrong with this guy? We have enough, cut his ass.
  12. A better question would be why would you sit down and play poker with a man who sexually assaulted your son for hours? The reports say this took place "later in the night" so it sure sounds like a Dunbar situation more so than suddenly getting outraged at a guy for abusing his son after playing cards with him for hours. Nope I don't buy the abuse part for a minute, I assume it was floated out by his lawyer so there's that. And as posted the charges were not for his action against that man, it was because he threatened, assaulted and discharged a gun in the direction of his best friend that took place after this alleged sexual offender had left. And i that was the case he should be released and face legal consequences.

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    The first month was best described as relaxing. As i was telling my wife if i was younger it would have been torture but after 60 you slow down and this was the only extended time off work I have had since I was 16. But then it got old in a hurry, the crap weather didn't help. Now it kind of sucks. I never envisioned this in retirement, I was going to travel, go out etc.
  14. I didn’t want to derail the thread, so I’m posting more privately.

     

    If you believe that your current circumstances are ‘ordinary’, and you truly seek extraordinary.... then I would challenge you to answer: “What are you avoiding from making these same choices every day?”

     

    ”What is the pain you are resisting... by not making different choices and taking different actions?”

     

    That’s where extraordinary When you’re no longer willing to tolerate ‘ordinary’, and you’re willing to invite extraordinary into it.

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    In these extraordinary times i find myself having 2 months of "ordinary moments". It's Ground Hog Day. I get up, watch the news which is always the same every day, sit in my recliner and post online with the tv in the background, Lather, rinse, repeat.
