  1. Sure, a 4.3 guy is faster than a 4.5 guy. But I think you may be over emphasising this. There are several Ds - Tampa 2 comes to mind, that you could employ if you have a speedster on the outside. Not to mention there are just not that many 4.3 guys in the league. And how many teams have 2 guys that can run 4.3? William Jackson runs a 4.37. If you re playing man you let him follow the fast guy. So yes if you just line up guy on guy with no interference the 4.3 guy outruns the 4.5 guy. But I have to think the DC has the responsibility to develop a plan to keep someone from being on
  2. Not sure where you got that information. He is anything but slow. Not sure where the uneven production came from either - you could say that on virtually every player to ever play if you find a play or two they made a mistake. I watched all the video I could find on him as I found his combination of size, length, and speed intriguing. He ran a 4.51 40, a 6.63 3 cone and a 3.96 shuttle. I put my money where my mouth is by drafting him in our ES Mock draft. St-Juste is a workman like attitude and is quite tenacious in his approach to the game. He had to fight through Michigan trying to sabotage
  3. https://www.edweek.org/leadership/what-is-critical-race-theory-and-why-is-it-under-attack/2021/05 Not sure how much people know about Critical Race Theory. I have to admit I was not that up on it until recently. I ran across this article from Education Weekly that at least seems rational. It's a lengthy article but the excerpt below seems to catch the essence of the argument for and against. I would be interested in peoples thoughts - if this deserves it's own thread let me know (maybe there is one - could not find anything) "Many educators support, to one degree or ano
  4. Aren't they the same? This!! I started wanting Biden to at least try. But it's clear the Rep are all talk. So **** them. Just do what you have to already. Get Voter Rights and Infrastructure passed before mid-terms. Let rep argue why it's bad to let people vote and rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.
  5. In previous years I would agree there should some concern. But not with this locker room. Too much leadership. Competition will be healthy.
  6. Let me start with I think if Taylor has improved his durability he can and will surprise people and has a legitimate chance of being the long term starter. having said, Fitz has been around way too long to be complacent. Taylor had an edge in OTAs and minicamp knowing the system. I expect Firz experience to land him the starting role. I also think that’s a good thing for Taylor. The pressure he would be under if named the starter ahead of fitz would honestly be unfair. Let him see how the veteran operates. Fitz will likely either get injured or faulter in the season and open t
  7. He is 50 - 33 the last 3 yrs. That means his TD/Int ratio went from 1.27 (173/136) to 1.51 (50/33). Not saying he is lock to be that guy - just saying this and other metrics suggest he is playing the best ball in his career - and if he starts will have the best D and one of the best set of offensive tools in his career. It could all be a mirage and he and we fall apart. But I doubt it, I have a lot of faith in RR.
  8. It says a lot when Boris Johnson says Biden is a breath of fresh air. https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/uks-johnson-hails-biden-a-big-breath-fresh-air-2021-06-10/
  9. Exactly my point. They all belong in nut houses yet are allowed to proliferate and prosper.
  10. This is truly frightening. The problem with these nut cases now is they have a voice. And other gullible people believe it. I say gullible as they are not all dumb, they just believe stupid ****. They actually believe they are smarter than everyone and have figured out some secret bull****. They are mentally ill yet nothing is done - and they are allowed to spread this type of non-sense.
  11. There is some momentum for WFT as the name. I myself would not mind it. There is also some energy around the other names like RedWolves. This board will tell you there is support for both. Fact is, win and you can call them the Pink Tinkerbells and people will start bringing little bells to games (ugh I can just hear it now, 70,000 little ****ing bells going off.....) Lose and no matter what name you choose it will be the wrong one and fans will hate it. As long as there are names like: Watersmeet Nimrods Punahou Buffanblu Salesianum Sallies Mt Clemens Battlin
  12. Great video!! Thanks for at least trying to change the topic of this thread back to Chase's performance. I love the way he brought up Curl also. What a great story. Dude is drafted in the 7th rd and may be our best DB. And he will only get better. Adding Jackson behind this line with Chase killing it will be enough to give DCs nightmares. I am so ready for real football. It's so bad I have been watching Madden 21 game simulations on Youtube!! Ok, maybe that was too much information.
  13. Bottom line - It's voluntary. This means by definition he has ZERO requirement to be there. If he misses mandatory practice then there may be reason to worry. Until then it's a compete non-issue.
  14. One of the first shows I really got into. "Linc" was the coolest! RIP! You are missed already.
  15. I really stopped caring once they decided to change it. Not out of some act of rebellion, but ultimately it's just a name. Make the change let's move on to something important, like playing actual football.
  16. I think both of these are true. Early on the US was far behind and was not a world leader and in fact was more considered the source of the issue. However, over the last 4 to 5 months we have emerged as a world leader again. This was made possible by two things - as much as I loathe trump, his administration did help the increased speed in developing the vaccine. The fact he then used politics to decide who would get it is a different story. But credit where credit is due. Then Biden put adults back in charge of the entire roll-out process and we have gotten vaccinated at a very h
  17. Or, there was no nefarious activity by anyone. That it happened either through nature or honest human error or careless. I agree that China is not our friend. But they are playing the long game which is financial strength and being a financial world leader. And they have worked towards that goal in a ruthless manner being able to outlast smart presidents and take advantage of poor presidents. They do not change governments every 4 years so they can take the long vision. Thinking they actually launched a serious disease on purpose is a bit too much James Bond'ish or Robert Ludlum (R
  18. I know you were kidding but here is what I heard - random freak accident - got an elbow from a RB. RR was dogging him about it in a friendly way. Seems RR and Taylor himself agree with me (and many others) that there are legitimate injury concerns based on the limited time he has played. Good on him for taking it as a challenge. Shows his determination and will do nothing but make the QB more competitive. This is good news for the team. Someone else said it earlier but it seems Allen is being considered almost an afterthought. He has his own i
  19. Que the "free speech" and "cancel culture" whining. Free speech only keeps you from being arrested - it does not protect you from other consequences. With any kind of luck this place will go out of business.
  20. I think it's directly related to the rookie salary cap. Before, you lost tons of money letting a QB go early, especially the early 1st rd players. Now, you can cut your losses much easier. ANd i agree re the Giants and Eagles. Could be a bloodbath trying to get a top QB in next year's draft, especially since it appears to be a weak class for QBs. Someone will be jumping way up using lots of resources for a QB that most years would go in the 3rd rd. Just hope it is NOT us.
  21. Exactly what facts do I not have? Was he or was he not on 3 other teams before joining the WFT? Did he or did he not get released by those 3 teams without making him a full time starter. Did he or did he not get dinged up in the two times he he got extended playing time? Honestly, I could care less what his record in college was. The level of talent is different, and the size of the players are often different. The league is littered with guys who never had even a hang nail in college then could not stay on the field in the NFL. No shame in it. He has still accomplished something t
  22. Hmm.. Don't remember saying anything about him not having NFL starting ability. Maybe you were talking about someone else. If so, you may have wanted to quote them not me. But since you did quote me I will respond - Proving to be an NFL starting QB is not a one game or even one year process. There have been many 1 full year starting QBs that have not shown enough to be identified as a starting caliber NFL QB. It takes several years of proving it on the field to get to that level. As for injuries, they are measured differently and rightly so. You can argue level of injury a
  23. I love the guy and like his effort and courage. He showed good game ability. But with getting injured twice in two starts, it's fair to be concerned if he can stay healthy, regardless of the seriousness of those injuries. Even small injuries can add up over a full season.
  24. My concern with Taylor has nothing to do with performance, My concern is lifetime - 2 starts, injured twice. That scares the life out of me.
