You should see what he does with twenties
|1 year 11 weeks ago||My opinion||
The down blocking by all the lineman (Zone) Including the TE (Assuming he gets over in time). Allows the RB to read the middle of the defense and bounce to the left. Hence the FB stretchining to the CB on the left. The play was designed to suck Clowney in and run right by him not to the A/B gap.

I'm surprised that "Moxie" (White) and "Well spoken" (Black) aren't on the list. Those are two that I constantly hear only used in that context.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||sincerely curious||
Do you believe that because Michael Sam may not get drafted or is there some new info that came out? Imo its not really a huge shocker that old rich guys dont like change no matter how much it doesn't matter.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||just wondering||
I was just wondering if you read the text log? To me it seemed there was a genuine friendship and from Incognito's side a brotherhood vibe. Granted the convo was foul and drug references were everywhere (which I believe is why it didnt come out right away) but I didnt think anything was wrong with how they engaged each other. No one seemed offended. Maybe it's just me or I didnt read all the reports but I feel bad for Incognito in this instance.

Can someone just instantly ban people that comment things like that? (5starrecruit) It makes us all look like Mlive or RCMB

I'm pretty sure some teams in the North are doing that already

I'd like to piggyback on this comment. Indeed it isn't very difficult in a routine play or in a controlled practice setting. However when you have a guy over you or even worse when you have to step hard in one direction to take the DT to one side or the other (as in a trap) it becomes increasingly difficult to make a hard step and get the ball on target.
Think of it this way, smaller centers make it to the NFL because they can long snap (tight spiraled passes between the legs basically) they can't have anyone make contact with them until their heads are up and yet they still miss from time to time.

I have nothing to add other than I wanted to keep the "zone" alive and satisfy my curiosity
|1 year 49 weeks ago||There is no such thing as an||
There is no such thing as an ex-Marine. The term is former Marine or non practicing Marine ( if you're not into the whole brevity thing). Also this is terrible. The NCAA needs to get their collective heads out of their asses.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I do see the difference||
You are 100% correct. My fault. I got a little carried away as I do believe a michigan man (alum, walmart, fan) should be held to a higher standard within ourselves especially on such a forum as this one. Some of the comments had me a little tweeked.

I think there's a big difference between my statement and the statement of others directly bashing someone's beliefs.

|1 year 50 weeks ago||This got out of hand quickly||
As an Atheist I find most/all relgious beliefs ridiculous. However I wouldn't ever bash a group of people for it no matter how easy the jokes are. This isn't the place for it no matter your views, same as politics. Last I checked we pride ourselves on our being better and hold ourselves to a different standard. Lets act like it.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I have two thoughts on it||
1. The NFL obviously uses NCAA football as minor leagues for freeso make a league thats not college based. I believe the market can support it. There will be kids that choose to learn and kids that choose to get paid.
2. A portion of all jersey sales and player likeness go to a fund that is given to the player only after meeting requirements of graduation, no severe discipline issues, etc.

Am I the only one that see's the irony of this comment coming on a michigan board? I'm not pointing figures and definitely not judging but we are a large part of the problem.

Damnit I knew I should have been born a highly gifted athlete. That place is amazing.

I just alternate using down on the right stick and spinning to the outside for leverage he usually blows by for pressure. (Heisman diff btw) The one part I find frustrating is defending the zone read. It locks you into the running back even if you see the pull. QB runs by like a canned animation.
|2 years 6 hours ago||He just broke the record for||
He just broke the record for sacks in a season for me on xbox (27 I believe) clearly he's capable of more than 7
|2 years 12 hours ago||No doubt Crosby is the best||
No doubt Crosby is the best player in the game today (Wings fan) however his first couple years he was a whiny crying baby and no matter how much he's changed (He has) thats a label thats hard to break in the NHL. Gretzky was the best ever and for the most part people from every team revere him.
|2 years 12 hours ago||During the game its Hockey||
During the game its Hockey but for post game sportsmanship its gotta be Rugby. Now where else have I seen such respect and sportsmanship no matter how ugly the game was on the field. The home team treats the away team to food and drink and atleast in the lower leagues it never gets out of hand and turns into drunken songs and laughs.
|2 years 5 days ago||I'm sure that's not the case||
I'm sure that's not the case at all but that is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this. I mean he's a damn near lock for top 10 or better and one of the few his age range nfl ready. Aside from that he did see a pretty gruesome injury up close and personal.
|2 years 6 days ago||Well gee in a thread about||
Well gee in a thread about Steve Breaston working out for the Lions he says, "Yes please, also draft Trey Burke"
1. Nothing I read sounded like sarcasm so I made light of it giving him the benfit of the doubt.
2. Assuming he meant for Detroit (Pistons) to draft him he's a bit late to the party as the NBA draft has been over for a few.
3. Sorry for "improperly" using a phrase in your presence.

Not sure if serious???
|2 years 1 week ago||I'm not sure how the hell it||
I'm not sure how the hell it works either, it used to be good ol up/down points. Don't let the couple of people that will down vote you just because you side with pure evil (Mostly sarcasm) the vast majority welcome honest intelligent debate.

True but he's pointing to the picture of him in the hawks locker room with said cup on the internets now. If i knew how any of that worked I'd post the picture for you.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Thats great||
Also if you remember when the Head Coach spot opened up lots of former players instantly put their votes in for Hoke. I know I (very mistakenly) didn't know of him nor did I really want a coach that had such a terrible record. Most people don't go out of their way like that unless they really believe and trust someone.
