Not a bad pick by the Lions. I mean, I would have been happy with a corner, but a tackle isn't bad and this is a good spot for Decker.
|4 hours 43 min ago||Even if it was 5 years old, I||
Even if it was 5 years old, I kind of doubt a kid goes from smoke-mask bong shots as his introduction to weed.
Just man up, say you are sorry, and move on. The fact this guy can't just take responsibility should be a pretty big red flag for me.
|4 hours 45 min ago||I do like how people are||
I do like how people are acting like the picture is the only reason Tunsil had question marks. Ignore him being suspended for receiving improper benefits, but that's another thing that makes me wonder if this might turn out to be one of those super-talented guys who never quite gets it all together.

Our great national nightmare is over; a college-aged kid who smokes pot has now been given millions of dollars.

Hugh Freeze just always looks like a POS to me. Just the slimiest, sacrosanct dude in the world.
|5 hours 4 min ago||Going to guess we aren't||
Going to guess we aren't going to see any bowl highlights in this recap.
|5 hours 6 min ago||True, but a RB should not go||
True, but a RB should not go in the first 10 picks of a draft unless he is truly dominant, and Elliott simply isn't. So that's just bad drafting, regardless of a couple of defensive players being out. Buckner is at least a big guy, but drafting Floyd an expecting him to be a really good rusher considering he never could do that in college (playing in the "easier" side of the SEC) seems like a combine-tinged mistake.
|5 hours 14 min ago||I guess I didn't watch enough||
I guess I didn't watch enough college football, but it sure seems like a couple of these defensive linemen/OLBs are all about potential and not so much on-field production. Both Floyd and Buckner seem like reaches that high. I guess the same could be said for Elliott, but at least there you have a known quantity, maybe just taken a bit too early.
|5 hours 42 min ago||Yeah, about my take as well. He seems like he may||
Yeah, about my take as well. He seems like he may have maxed out his physical elements in college, so what you get is a guy who maybe scrapes 10 sacks a year a couple of times and is solid but doesn't really change the complexion of your defense in a dominant way.
|5 hours 46 min ago||Literally dozens of other players with potential||
Literally dozens of other players with potential utility beyond a running back. I mean, even in Dallas he's not going to be worth the #4 pick.

Good. I have to imagine he's a lot of fun in a camp setting.

Our great national nightmare is over until the next time Harbaugh tries to do something that offends the fine SEC and ACC sensibilities.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I'm sure if he doesn't sign with UM people will||
I'm sure if he doesn't sign with UM people will complain about Beilein as a terrible receuiter, and if he does it will be about UM scrapping the bottom of the barrel.
He looks like a nice pickup if he does join the team. Looks like a really good athlete, which the team could use at SF.
|1 day 8 hours ago||He isn't figuring out recruiting. He does fine at||
He isn't figuring out recruiting. He does fine at it, but it's never been his strong point. But again, complaining about Beilein is an art around here, I guess.
|1 day 8 hours ago||He isn't learning the recruiting ropes. He is||
He isn't learning the recruiting ropes. He is bringing in a top 100 player in Simpson, and has a history of bringing in decent to very good recruits. People around here just like to birch about Beilein because they either feel this program should be a top-10 team every year despite historical evidence that isn't the case, or are annoyed that they pulled the tag off their 2012 replica jersey and are bummed out that the bandwagon has some bumps.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I mean, MAAR may be the team's best player next||
I mean, MAAR may be the team's best player next season, and Wagner is probably the most promising big man. I'm not saying this is optimal, but it's not like Beilein can't find decent players late in the process.
|1 day 8 hours ago||He isn't his brother by any stretch, and Iowa St||
He isn't his brother by any stretch, and Iowa St liking him is fine but it's not like a bunch of programs are beating down his door.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Either the Blue Album by||
Either the Blue Album by Weezer or the first Ace of Base album. Either way, not the greatest records, but good enough.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Good.||
|1 day 14 hours ago||He's a good late-round||
He's a good late-round pickup. Probably won't be a star, but he has the intelligence to be a competent backup for a couple of years. The arm strength and measurables aren't fantastic, but he's at least competent enough to get a chance at a roster spot.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Amaker was a nice guy and a||
Amaker was a nice guy and a decent coach, but at no point did I watch his teams at UM and thought they were particularly gifted or well-coached on both ends of the floor. I do think he learned a lot from the experience and he seems to be a better coach at Harvard (ball movement seems much better based on the couples games I've seen of them). But he just didn't work out here.
|1 day 15 hours ago||It's funny, because Fox just||
It's funny, because Fox just keeps spending money on guys nobody cares about. It was Cowherd, now Bayless. I mean, the reason people know them is because they scream on popular ESPN shows. Take away the "popular ESPN show" part and you just have obnxious guys yelling into a void.
Hoepfully ESPN spends their money on better talent.

Yeah, that was my read as well. Once the play got off, the team seemed reasonably sound. I'm guessing that there will always be some false start and formation penalties just because of the intricate nature of the offense, but not too many.

Good luck to him, and happy he did so well here.
This further surprises me why Red came back. I doubt he'll have this level of relative success next year to go out on.

Oh great, THIS again.
Heck, Brady might like the vacation at this point, and the NFL couldn't look dumber in the process.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Yeah, he always seemed like a reasonable flyer||
Yeah, he always seemed like a reasonable flyer type of recruit. He's not that big nor does he have amazing speed, but he's absolutely a kid you can take without anyone being surprised late in the cycle. I agree UM didn't need to pursue him and that would have saved UM some drama over a couple of coaching staffs, but UM has guys like him every cycle and sometimes they pan out.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Seems like a nice offer, and||
Seems like a nice offer, and the type of guy you'd want to get ahold of if he's local and is interested. Seems like he could carry quite a bit more good weight without a major issue, even at 270 already.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Good breakdown. I didn't see||
Good breakdown. I didn't see OSU or MSU, but I caught a little of the PSU game and have to agree. Franklin is going to feel it this year without the great defenses he's had in years past, and at this point it's becoming pretty clear that his QB mentoring isn't particular good. I mean, Hackenberg had problems, but nobody seems able to throw the ball on that team.

At least it was marked OT.
|6 days 12 hours ago||You could have just said "OSU||
You could have just said "OSU coach goes on twitter" and we'd have known the rest of it.
As for the rant itself, I have no idea what he's talking about. Seems like somebody said something about OSU not being the bestestestest ever and Smith freaked out.
