Rosenberg is still deserving of his fisking because Rosenberg. Interesting to see how this plays out.
Being curious as to what an NFL Quality Control Coach does but, never having reason enough to add it to the myriad of items on my "Surefire ways to waste infinite amounts of time" list, The hiring of Jay Harbaugh now gives me said reason.
(edit: due to what was probably a way too obscure title and longwinded OP, I edited to get the focus more on the article and less on Jay Harbaugh)
TwentyFour Wines seems to be a real passion for Mr Woodson these days, and he'll be in Michigan for a "casual tasting" and bottle signing event at Plum Market in Ann Arbor on February 5 from 7:15-9:15 and in Bloomfield February 6 from 4:00-6:00. Both events appear to be open to the public and free.
His 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon made Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2014, coming in at number 58.
This is the picture shared on Twitter for 2/6, the one for 2/5 is identical except the date, time and town.
Per ESPN: Michigan, UCLA and Georgia
As the adrenaline of the Harbaugh hiring has finally worn off and we're left with a subpar basketball season and a mercurial hockey team -- I've found there is a dearth of content. In that vein (i.e. any news is worthy news), I thought I'd share this little tidbit I got at work yesterday:
My boss lives in the same area as Harbaugh used to in the Bay Area (hills west of 280 around Palo Alto). He runs in the CEO crowd down there (cocktail parties, 3 martini lunches at the Woodside pub, etc.). About 6 months ago, he was invited to a coktail party at Harbaugh's next door neighbors's house (someone he knows through this network). JH comes along to the party as well. What my boss notices is that he brings all of the 49ers rookies with him to the cocktail party -- you can't miss pro football players in that crowd. So he asks JH's neighbor: why does JH bring rookies to a cocktail party -- not the most obvious thing to do.
The reasoning is thus: When players are new to the league, JH wants to make sure they don't want to get into too much trouble. Rather than give them lectures about behavior, he just has them go with him to all his social functions so he can keep an eye on them. He'll do this until he's convinced they're not going to get into trouble and he's drilled into their head how to behave off the field. Obviously not foolproof (see: 49ers off field issues this year) but I thought it showed his dedication. He literally lives his team to the point that he takes them everywhere he goes. Feel a little sorry for his wife (hey honey, do you mind if I bring 7 guys with us on date night), but you have to love the all encompassing dedication to his craft.
Haven't seen this posted yet:
Former Michigan linebacker Jake Ryan, a two-time captain, has earned the Pat Tillman Award at the East-West Shrine Game.
The Pat Tillman Award is presented to the player who best exemplifies intelligence, sportsmanship and service.
According to Buccaneers.com:
"Ryan led the East team in tackles with five and recorded one of his team’s four sacks. An inside linebacker, Ryan took smart angles to the ball carrier, proved to be a great tackler and was efficient in pass coverage. "
JMFR could really perform well in the NFL as an OLB in the proper 3-4 system where his versatility is valued and deployed correctly.
