  1. The belief that McMurpjy accurately reported this saga as a journalist is comedic. If you want to say Urban is a loser and should be fired, that’s fine. But if you’re going to toot Brett McMurphy’s horn then you just lose every ounce of credibility. Here’s a guy who presented a false narrative, ran with it, edited out the lies/misfacts that created an early narrative, with no retraction. And, opted to only report one side of the narrative without any conflicting accounts or exculpatory information that makes things an intelligent conversation. I’m all about a logical argument. I don’t even car

  3. Guillain-Barre syndrome is usually a one-time thing, not a persisting or recurring problem. It's a disease where the immune system attacks the peripheral nerves (and nerve roots). That attack is thought to be triggered by a recent infection or vaccine, but in many cases there's no obvious cause for it. GBS usually presents as an acute or subacutely progressive (onset within a few days to a few weeks) pattern of weakness and numbness that starts in the feet/toes and/or fingers and then moves up the limbs. At its most severe, the disease can weaken the facial and throat muscles and the dia

  4. It's been very quiet from the guy.... The guy says that Evans is dealing with a hamstring. Team is really handling injuries a lot different from years past and even people inside the building aren't really sure what's going on with some of the "injured" players. For those guys that are looked to be counted on in the regular season, there are no chances being taken. Feels that if season was tomorrow, we'd see majority of these players suiting up. The culture is really about respecting players and apparently the players are loving it. They feel like the coach really ha

  7. 1. The Bruce Arians offense is good. No need to change it much over the last 15 years. 3. Wilcots. 4. The first commercial on the broadcast featured a convicted pedophile. 5. They did, for the Texans. 1. Anyone who ever thought Tim Couch was a bust is an idiot. There are some top shelf throws in this game. There are also numerous plays where offensive linemen in front of him fall on their faces missing their blocks. The main reason Tim Couch never became a franchise QB? Take a look at the tomato cans Couch dragged into the playoffs.

  8. If they force this Rob Kelley crap it’s going to cost Jay his job. Guice was clearly better in the few carries he got and AP is way better as well. Just play the better guy and not your favorite.

  13. Seriously? I'm part of the "lynch mob" apparently, and here's what I wrote the day they suspended him indefinitely: If they had run a complete investigation and were able to show that Urban Meyer actually didn't know or reported what he knew and did his job, then of course he should keep his job. Lying to the media about DV is a stain on the program, but at least internally stuff would have been handled appropriately. That's not what they found. What they found was that he knew, he didn't report it, he lied repeatedly about it, and when the media raised the possibility of an inves

  15. Agreed. This whole situation was handled terribly. Stunning that for the past few weeks, OSU websites, homers, and blogs have been stewing with victim-blaming, reporter discrediting, and so much more. And after the press conference, literally all of it is corroborated including the report of Zach’s grandfather talking Courtney out of pressing charges. Very concerning.

They (drake by all accounts, as the board apparently was all in agreement with no additional punishment, according to an earlier tweeter) screwed the pooch there should have been no middle ground / gray area if he did something wrong...he should have been fired. if he reported to gene, and it stopped at gene....gene should have been fired. if they found/determined he did no wrong...time served suspension simple says one of these they don’t want to pay him $40m to go away they think a suspension will quiet the mob and media.

This is an excellent article that was written last year, really an in depth look at the work of NFL Scouts This section talks about what happens at cut down time in August - especially for the Pro Personnel staff. But its an in depth article and covers a ton of info on the unheralded work that happens behind the scenes to get to the 53 man roster and keep it stocked all year long https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2017/8/24/16195480/life-of-pro-scouts The Unheralded Work of Pro NFL Scouts Exploit Roster Cutdowns “The month of August is a grind,” McCartney said.

  25. For me the biggest difference is experience and NFL readiness. Randall and Rollins, for all their potential and rookie season excitement, were both still relatively new to the position. Whereas Josh and Jaire were both EXCELLENT college corners who seem capable of stepping right into NFL competition.

  26. that's probably being a bit generous. if we want to play math games , I'm betting the average draft position of that data set is the middle of each round, so it's more like 27% for mid-4th-round picks, 17% for mid-5th, 7% for mid-6th. Moore, MVS, and EQ were all picked at or near the end of their rounds, so it's more like Moore is halfway between your 4th & 5th, MVS halfway between your 5th & 6th, etc. So using those numbers, the chance that at least 1 meets the 20 catches is ~36%

  28. LOL, don’t try to pretend you didn’t misread my post. You tried to nitpick it as inaccurate and out of date (“not sure what practices you’re watching, some of your news is old too”), without mentioning that what you were calling “old news” was current at the time the post was written. You didn’t write to update and inform, but to whine — as usual — that the Packers weren’t being discussed in this thread in as unreservedly optimistic terms as you’d like.

  29. Well, the post you’re replying to was written on Friday August 17, and time does pass. I didn’t say MVS looked bad, I said he looked good. I also said Kumerow was making plays. I didn’t mention EQ. Moore having “trouble catching it” is the “miss” in “hit and miss”. Reading comprehension, Arthur. Rodgers praising them all this week is nice, but the post was written last Friday, so I’m not actually remiss for failing to mention that. Jones hasn’t played a snap in the preseason yet, because of injuries. He only returned to practice this week. Williams got hurt the day b

  30. That may have been their attempt but I tend to this actually makes more damage. 1. These are now being thrown out and their veracity questioned with no opportunity for rebuttal. 2. Now they will have to answer these questions later and this will linger even longer 3. Reporters now have even more time to digest and research these findings to ask better, more pointed questions with previous claims/findings to counter explanations. Terrible move I think from the PR people.

  33. Another thing that is considered crazy over here. Opposition fans sitting together. I was shocked when I first went to an NFL game in the States and rivals fans were sat next to each other. That would be guaranteed murders over here haha... damn, maybe we do deserve to be herded and treated as worse than criminals.

  37. He’s a 30+ corner coming off an Achilles. I wasn’t expecting much from him. If Humphrey, Young, and Carr look good we should trade him as soon as the suspension ends. The amount of money we’ve given him over the years for the amount of time he’s actually been on the field is insane

  39. Based on pro-football-reference, it looks like 27% of 4th round WRs, 17% of 5th rd WRS and 7% of 6th rd WRs have had 20 or more receptions in their rookie season. (2005-2017). Just for fun, if you take all those probabilities, that means there is a 45% chance at least one of them has more than 20 catches. (1-(1-.027)*(1-.017)*(1-0.07))
