Why did you change your name

Because favorite songs are temporary.  Favorite movies are forever.

Can you guess the CBs? Player B didn't do some of the drills. Wonder how they would compare overall. They may not be the best comparison, especially based on incomplete data, but I'm gonna go ahead and do it and say Player A's rookie season will go as well as Player B.B|

A: HEIGHT 5' 10"

WEIGHT: 196 lbs

ARMS: 31 1/8”
HANDS:  9 1/2”

40 Yard Dash: 4.38

Bench Press: 14

Vertical Jump: 35.0

Broad Jump 127.0

3 Cone Drill: 6.71

20 Yd Shuttle: 3.98


B:  6'0"HEIGHT

31 1/4"ARM LENGTH

193LBS.WEIGHT

8 7/8"HANDS

40 Yard Dash: 4.36

Vertical Jump: 38.5

Broad Jump 132.0

 

Player C is a closer comparison in regards to size and athleticism.  There is more to playing CB than athletic measurables.

PLAYER C:

HEIGHT: 5' 10"

WEIGHT: 195 lbs

ARMS: 32"

HANDS:  10"

40 Yard Dash: 4.34

Bench Press: 15

Vertical Jump: 41

Broad Jump 128

3 Cone Drill: 6.71

20 Yd Shuttle: 3.98

You are killing me man.  How can you make me remember Ahmad Carroll.  Now I have to start drinking heavily and it is only 11 AM.

In defense of Carroll though, the NFL changed its approach to pass interference in 2004 and basically cracked down his style of play in college.  The Packers failed to adjust their board in the limited time before the draft.  If I recall correctly, Carroll was actually on the educational tape for the officials as an example of what to call.  Makes for a tough transition to the NFL.

Alexander shouldn't have that problem.

First he predicts GB in the Bowl. Then he wins the ACC.

Coincidence?

Take it from someone twice your age - you are wrong. Time tells me the good ones in both categories endure, music maybe even more so than film (at least for me).  I have loved good music and film from 50 and more years ago and will continue to, until I die...............and after that it doesn't really matter to me anymore.
Waterloo Sunset (Kinks, 1967) or The Maltese Falcon (film 1941) are two of my absolute timeless favourites, both over 50 years old. I could easily  have picked an older song and newer film, but the point is made well enough.

Nope.  I've changed my favorite song at least 10 times in the past 10 years.  My favorite movie has been going strong for 14 years now and if I live for another hundred years, I don't see it falling out of my top three.

That just tells me there are more good songs out there than good films. Lots and lots more.
