  1. Rollerball - like the 70s movie of the same name.
  2. Thanks for your comments. Trent has big shoes to fill that's for sure but I'm happy he's the next guy at that position. It's tragic that the Redskins have done so little for so long now, and it can't be coincidence that it has been dreadful since Snyder took ownership. I really miss that Washington has not been part of the big picture all these years. I fondly remember admiring and hating them (purely based on fear) at the same time during the late 80s and early 90s when you had greats like Art Monk and Gary Clark at receiver, Russ Grimm and Joe Jacoby on the O line and Charles Mann and crazy Dexter Manley on the D line. The Redskin resurrection is long overdue. Hopefully Ron Rivera and his staff get your franchise back on track.
  3. This might make better reading about him. https://utsports.com/sports/football/roster/jauan-jennings/10212#sidearm-roster-player-bio Either way I'm intrigued to say the least.

He moved from quarterback to receiver during preseason practices his true freshman season and wound up starting six of 11 games played that year (14 receptions, 149 yards, 10.6 average; seven carries, 15 yards, 2.1 ypc). Jennings started nine games as a sophomore, collecting 40 passes for 580 yards and seven scores in 13 appearances. His 2017 season at Rocky Top was a bit rocky, as he suffered a wrist injury in the opener after catching three passes for 17 yards. He did not end up playing the rest of the year, though he went to social media to rip coaches for not putting him back on the field late in the season. Interim head coach Brady Hoke dismissed him from the team after that incident, but the new coaching staff brought him back in the spring of 2018 (though a knee injury kept him from practicing). Jennings returned to the starting lineup for five games in 2018 (30 receptions, 438 yards, 14.6 average, three touchdowns in 12 contests). He suffered a knee injury in the summer of 2019, but managed to play all 13 games for the Volunteers as a senior, leading the team in receiving (59 receptions, 969 yards, 16.4 average, eight touchdowns; 13 carries, 51 yards, 3.9 ypc, one touchdown). Analysis By Lance Zierlein NFL Analyst Draft Projection Priority free agent Overview Big slot target with size, savvy and toughness, but lacking in functional speed and general quickness. Jennings can be clever in stemming and tilting coverage enough to open throwing windows, but getting away from press coverage is going to be difficult for him. What he can't do may keep him from being drafted, but competitiveness at the catch point, with the ball in his hands, and as a blocker should get him into camp and give him an outside shot as a big, possession slot. Strengths Big and strong Shows some savvy in getting open against off coverage Plays to his size at catch-point Quick hands to pluck tall throws and balls behind him Unusually powerful tackle breaker Contact balance and determination requires multiple tacklers Efficient and consistent tracking and adjusting to throws High percentage of catches moved the chains Size and aggression to look up and lock up as run blocker Weaknesses Doesn't run well and will not threaten vertically Unlikely to be considered as outside target Hip tightness is a limiting factor Restricted stride length in open field Can't sink and get in and out of breaks quickly Unable to wiggle and elude press Takes punishment from punchers denying his lift-off GRADE 8.0 The perfect prospect 7.3-7.5 Perennial All-Pro 7.0-7.1 Pro Bowl talent 6.7-6.8 Year 1 quality starter 6.5 Boom or bust prospect 6.3-6.4 Will be starter within first two seasons 6.1-6.2 Good backup who could become starter 6.0 Developmental traits-based prospect 5.8-5.9 Backup/special-teamer 5.5-5.6 Chance to make end of roster or practice squad 5.4 Priority free agent 5.0-5.1 Chance to be in an NFL training camp NO GRADE Likely needs time in developmental league This is from the NFL website if you haven't already read it. Apologies for the extra stuff that's irrelevant to him.
  5. Yes he is injury prone but I'd just like to see him stay healthy and do good as a starter, which is probably wishful thinking on my part.
  6. What a great statement from one of our best ever players. Enjoy your retirement Joe, you earned it.
  7. Yep that crossed my mind too. He's got the character for TV land.
  8. Another good move by our front office. Wish Goodwin well but he was expendable and we got something in return and saved some money.
  9. Pleased for Matt Breida, he'll get his chance to be the guy for the Fins and he deserves it. And we got a LT to develop whilst we decide what to do with Trent Williams after next season. Really good move by our front office depth where we need it using an embarrassment of riches from our RB pool.
  10. So our beloved franchise has a stacked roster, and success in the league revolves among other things around how well you use the salary cap. Get it wrong and you can put your playoff hopes on the back burner for a long time. Get it right and get the players who can help you immediately (even if it's just for one season) and your chances improve considerably. You can't build a roster that's going to stay together for years on end, not even four years. So your window of opportunity to make it to the Super Bowl is within a four year time span IMO. But it's a moving four year time span, so you have to have incredible flexibility. We made it last year against all expectations, but now our expectations have changed and we believe we can make it back there again quickly. That's not going to happen if you replace the great Joe Staley with a rookie e.g Tristan Wirfs, because he's going to need time to learn the offense for a few years and your window is only four years long. But it can happen if you replace a great player with another great player, especially one who is familiar with the offensive scheme of his new head coach. So taking Trent Williams (on a potential one year rental) for a fifth round pick in essence (if we end up with a 3rd round comp pick in 2021 if he moves on to bigger money elsewhere) is an absolute no brainer to me. With all due respect to Tristan Wirfs, and I wish him all the best and a great career, but the Niners are not going back to the Super Bowl without a proven starting left tackle. P. S. How ironic would it be if we make it back to the NFCCG only to have to face Tom Brady being protected by Wirfs. Stranger things have happened
  11. We had four areas of need. DT, WR, OL and CB. We didn't have enough early round picks to fill those needs. So we got a DT and a WR. Which leaves OL and CB. Joe Staley must be coming back for one last hurrah. Which leaves CB, where we're not as deep as we'd like to be, but it looks like that could be next years priority, if Sherman hangs it up. To recap, we moved down one spot to take a need and a player we really like in Kinlaw. We used the 4th from that trade to move up 6 spots to take a need player in Ayiuk who we believe Shanny loves for his schemes. Yes we gave up 117 and a late fourth rounder and seventh rounder too but that's chump change if Ayiuk and Kinlaw turn out to be really good. And they'll be on rookie deals (if the 2020 season goes ahead). We could not realistically have kept Buckner on the salary he would have commanded. And we kept him out of the conference. We gave up our 2nd for Dee Ford and our 3rd and 4th for Sanders. Does anyone believe that without their contributions last year that we would have got the number one seed which really got us to the Super Bowl? Debatable but I think not. And how many of us here truly believed we would get to the Super Bowl before last season started? Any takers? I'm happy with the picks we made. In Shanny and Lynch and their staff I trust. Just look where they've taken us in 3 years from the state we were in.
  12. Losing Buckner left us with a hole to fill. We filled it. And got an early 4th pick too. Yes WR help is needed but we still have Jalen Hurd on the books ( I think he's going to be huge in our offense), and if the draft is really that deep at receiver then there are plenty of others to choose from, even if we trade down from 31 to get another pick /picks. Look what we got in the second round last year. Anyone think we trade Pettis or Breida, let alone Goodwin?
  13. Joe Montana Jerry Rice Lawrence Taylor Walter Payton
  14. Very worthwhile signing by the Cowboys.
  15. I sincerely have no problem moving on from Pettis. But the report coming from a National Enquirer type source like Florio probably renders it horse poop.
