    I wonder if this is the kind of thing that we’re going to see people trying to handle with VR training during offseasons. I know you see VR training in sports like baseball with some decent evidence for effectiveness but there’s also a lot less moving parts there.

    Yeah I feel like there’s only been like one year since the superbowl where I didn’t feel we were pretty abysmal at tackling
  3. False flag imo. This was all planned as a stunt
  4. Good news imo. The more time he spends walkingh, the less time he spends with the playbook

He battled with courage and determination to transcend the serious stroke he suffered in September 2014, but his most recent illness was too much to overcome."

    whoever set up the meet hung the net wrong so instead of draped inside the poles it was stretched taught around the outside. He released early and what should have just hit the net and fell harmlessly instead got flung back at the thrower

    There's a picture I've seen somewhere out there of an official at a track meet that was taken like miliseconds before he got hit with a javelin. it's like 2 inches from his kidney at the time of the photo. He ended up doing fine after treatment. I saw a few people get hit with a shotput in my days. One in the head, one in the spine. Also saw a guy hit himself in the forehead with a discus. Not really his fault though.

    After some quick reading, it really does seem like this explains a lot of the things that were both rumored and publicly visible. Seems like a really difficult thing to go through. Kinda sucks that the narrative in some circles became about a GM so checked out that he was sleeping through meetings, rather than a story about a guy who was pushing through a debilitating disease and the things people were seeing were symptoms of that.

    to clarify, I didn't mean they were perhaps the most highlight-heavy in team history, I meant in league history. Obviously all of this is going to be tilted toward the era in which highlights are readily available, but this was a team with perhaps the most talented passer of all time and his flair for the dramatic and hard-on for deep balls (and willingness to take sacks), a defense predicated on using sacks and turnovers to make up for its chronic inability to maintain discipline, and a special teams unit known for its spectacular failures.

    watched some highlight vides on youtube. The Aaron Rodgers-era Packers may be the team with both the most highlight-reel plays for and most highlight-reel plays against
  12. 2019 Draft Thoughts

    I'm not going to claim he was a good player before the injury, but he tore his ACL in his rookie season and it affected his play throughout his second season to the point where he was an injury scratch the final 4 games because of the same lingering injury. I consider that an injury bomb
  13. 2019 Draft Thoughts

    If being enthusiastic 8 years ago about a draft pick that ended up bombing out of the league for largely injury reasons is disqualifying, then there are zero people qualified to hold opinions on football.

    friend of a friend was dating Kenny Clark when he got drafted. Couldn't tell you if they're still together though.
