Lighten up Francis.

I don't hate the Browns, just feel bad for Peppers that he's going to have to deal with a shitty organization.
Taco to Cowboys actually pisses me off more. Fuck Jerry Jones.
Jake Ryan to the fudge packers comes to mind too.

Are you really unable to wrap around your head around the idea that a kid probably isn't going to change that much as a person in a year. This wasn't someone that stole a juice box in 6th grade. He assaulted someone days before signing and a year later he allegedly rapes someone. These are not unconnected.

Being a dickhead was his job though.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Well, staff ignoring or||
Well, staff ignoring or actively trying to suppress this stuff from seeing the light of day would constitute LOIC. Curtis Blackwell is currently suspended. Depending on how deep it goes, it's not that far of a stretch.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not sure about MMJ for||
Not sure about MMJ for depression, but there has been a lot of recent news about success treating depression with ketamine. It's pretty experimental at this stage, so it might be an issue getting a doctor to try it, but worth asking about.
|1 week 3 days ago||Second this. I was there with||
Second this. I was there with my family this weekend and they had an awesome time.
|1 week 3 days ago||Optimism is the right word.||
Optimism is the right word. They showed they had the ability for the most part, but were discombobulated when things didn't go according to plan a lot too. The right side in pass pro was pretty rough too. Hopefully either Runyan can take a big step over summer, or one of the injured guys would be an upgrade.

It did come off his leg with some juice, but keep in mind there was a good 15-20 mph wind at his back.
|1 week 6 days ago||Knowing the play book,||
Knowing the play book, including all the contingencies, reading defenses where they are trying to disguise coverages and blitzs doesn't really show up in spring game because both sides are so vanilla. Those are the traits Speight should have over Peters. That said, it's entirely possible Peters makes up that ground by fall.
|1 week 6 days ago||Doubtful they'd let him play||
Doubtful they'd let him play pretty much the whole game if he wasn't 100%. Might be a mental thing (yips), which would make more sense to give him more reps to work on it.
Still have to re-watch, but live his mechanics were awful,seemed like his upper and lower body were all out of sync. He also seemed like he was pushing the ball on release too.

We're bringing our 1.5 year old. We're not bringing a stroller. Go light, chances are you won't be there long anyway with a young one.

This the dude that whipped out a gun during a traffic altercation?
EDIT: Looks like no.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Eh, there's already a staff||
Eh, there's already a staff member that seems to have been involved in the issues and suspended as a result. It's not that big of a leap.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I wonder with the state of||
I wonder with the state of the OL if both Frey and Drevno were told to focus on the position for each team.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks, updated. Magnus, you||
Magnus, you need to get your website provider to boost your google profile. TTB isn't coming up in searches.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I would but I don't know that||
I would but I don't know that info, maybe WD can help? A lot are up in the air still.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm going with Maize based on||
I'm going with Maize based on the known roster. That could change a lot once we find out who the OLs are.
Attendance will be 45k. 60k was perfect weather and Harbaugh's first season, it'll be tough to match that.

I gotta say, I was skeptical when you hinted at this on the other thread, but you were right.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Right the coaches did the||
Right the coaches did the drafting. Presumably Peters went off the board for the Maize before Blue selected both Speight and O'Korn, meaning Peters was higher on the coaches' boards than O'Korn. Now, that could be earlier by one pick, or several rounds, hence it's just one indication and not gospel, but it does seem to suggest Peters is passing O'Korn for the back up spot. Of course, lots of time left until the opener.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I mean there were||
Yeah, I mean there were obviously serious issues with how Hoke ran the program. The griping about burned redshirts and certain guys not getting PT is a bit of a double standard though.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||With the coaches publicly||
With the coaches publicly saying he's the starter, I would be surprised if Speight plays more than a couple series. It'll probably be O'Korn vs Peters primarily.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Ok, guy who posted||
Ok, guy who posted completey unrelated "insider" info about a former athlete as a way to take yet another shot at Hoke 3 years after he's gone, I'm the one that is living in the past.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||If Winovich can be an every||
If Winovich can be an every down WDE, we've recruited a boat load of pass rush specialist, WDE/LB tweeners that could fill in on passing downs.

Add Dwumfour to that list too.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||1. Hoke was facing a RR||
1. Hoke was facing a RR recruiting effort that was absolute shit. He had the same roster issues to deal with.
2. Exactly why playing Gedeon and Thomas right away isn't a bad idea. The fact they didn't contribute consistently for a long time after that is a matter of hindsight.
3. and 4. Meh, Hoke protected Morris from competition by not taking another QB, but I really can't think of another case of that. I think it's pretty dubious to claim Hoke wasn't trying to recruit the best players possible with the expectation of them leaving in 3 years. Jabrill Peppers says hi.
5. Keep in mind Gedeon and Thomas both played sparingly under year 1 of Harbaugh too. This wasn't a wait your turn situation. They just weren't ready or there were better options.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||In contrast, Harbaugh plays||
In contrast, Harbaugh plays freshmen, but he has a coherent personnel strategy and uses their assets to help the team.
How so? A ton of the 17 burned redshirts that played against Hawaii hardly played another snap.
For every Chris Evans and Eddie McDoom, you have a Nick Eubanks and Sean McKeon.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Point 2 is the one I have a||
Point 2 is the one I have a problem with. His position coach should be the one explaining it to him. If Gedeon didn't bother asking him, that's on him, if the position coach couldn't give him an answer then that's on the position coach. Should Hoke also be able to give him an answer? Sure, but that's a secondary failure.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Redshirt decision falls to||
Redshirt decision falls to the HC. Playing time does not, unless you're implying Hoke went out of his way to over-rule his position coaches to screw over certain players for, I dunno, reasons.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, a big part about||
Yeah, a big part about managing lack of depth is having lights out starters that can boot the opposing offenses off the field quickly. I feel pretty good about having that this year.
