Hey Lith. What an impressive offensive backfield the Bulldogs have. Fromm is really good. Michel and Chubb are some frickin duo. Congrats on the win.
Thanks. Just got back from Pasadena early this AM. What an amazing game and an awesome experience. The venue, the setting, the game itself, so much at stake and an incredible double OT win for my team. Not sure I could have asked for more out of a sporting event. What made it a little sweeter was the drunken loudmouth Oklahoma fans sitting in back of us -- were celebrating as if it was over in the first half. Boy, their silence was sweet in the 2nd half and in OT. And traveling for the Dawgs sure beats traveling for the Jets -- also proves that my teams can actually win games when I show up to see them live.
As to the GA backfield, I would be happy with Chubb, but Michel is the guy I really want. Elite vision, burst, explosiveness, hands -- a complete 3-down block at the next level
With my son after the game:
Pretty cool man. Good for you and i'm jealous. To be a part of something like that for a team you love - with family?... that's about as good as it gets in life.
Good luck to the dawgs next week. Gonna be a banger'
Luke Falk - QB - Cougars 247Sports' Barry Bolton reports that Washington State senior QB Luke Falk played with a broken left wrist for most of the season.
Per Bolton, Falk broke his left wrist all the way back on Sept. 9, in a win over Boise State, and played the rest of the season with a cast on the injured hand (under a black glove). Washington State went to great lengths to keep this under wraps, with Falk cutting off the cast before media sessions so as to avoid questions. According to Bolton, the senior quarterback was forced to undergo surgery two weeks after the close of the regular season due to his increasing issues with mobility in the wrist. All of this explains why Falk was scratched from the team's Holiday Bowl loss to Michigan State earlier this week. It could also go a ways toward explaining why the gunslinger had himself a relatively down campaign by his standards, throwing for 3,593 yards with a 30/13 TD/INT ratio after posting back-to-back 38-touchdown seasons in 2015 and 2016. Falk's availability for the Senior Bowl is unknown, but this recent surgery could certainly throw a wrench into matters.
This was the fantasy I was imagining the other day. Something similar to what the Giants and Chargers did in 2004. Browns pick Rosen, Jets pick Mayfield at 6, teams swap QBs and Jets send a bunch of picks to the Browns as well.
Easy peasy on paper, but there's 4 teams between us and that first pick and a lot interest in the position. BUF to name the obvious candidate.
I'm firm on this; trade up as high as we can. Fuck the costs, doesn't matter. Get up as high as we can, and then evaluate our options.

It's a bubble and completely unsustainable. No one is using it as currency, which was its intention, everyone is holding or selling to the highest bidder. The blockchain tech behind it is weak. If you're looking to invest in cryptocurrency long term, buy Ethereum. It's blockchain has actual uses.
Cryptocurrency is here to stay. Bitcoin's run will likely continue and you'll see some peaks and valleys i'm sure, but that ship has sailed w/r to making millions. You;d have spend big - but you can still turn a few grande into a few grande more... there is other altcoins like neo, or iota to make better money off of though.
Men... on computers, arguing and posting pictures? Ok skywalker, you and your vagina can go back to having hurt feelings. I'm sure some other pussies on social media can't wait to hear about how offended you are about the anthem while you sit getting fat on the internet.

Am watching USF-UCF and am very impressed with Quinton Flowers of USF. have never seen him before. He has an accurate, strong arm and good mobility. At 6 feet, a little short. Anyone have more on this guy?
College QB, who doesn't translate to NFL. flush, and move on.
Darnold, Rosen, and Jackson all turned 20 in 2017. Mayfield turned 22 in 2017. So, the question is would the 2017 Mayfield be better than any of the 2019 versions of Darnold, Rosen, or Jackson?
Food for thought: Mac always seems to stress Hack's relatively young age when defending his selection.
who cares. Macc is eating that one and will be for the rest of his career unless you can land the next Manning.
Your other question; eh, who knows, who cares. Accuracy is the gateway to success. Some have it spades right out of the gate, some improve in their early 20s... none suck at it, and suddenly become accurate... (Hackenberg... Allen)
You're not a Patriot, you're an idiot. Here's an idea... turn the game on 5 minutes late and you don't have to watch the anthem. Fucking cry baby moron. I served this country during wartime and I don't care if you sit kneel or what you do during the flag most people get up and go get a fucking beer. I happen to stand for it, but my service was for freedom. I served peoples right to choose.
How bout you go fuck yourself. I choose not to watch overpaid athletes shit on the country during my downtime. Thank you for your service.
Is it really possible that every other Division 1 program -- I'm talking teams like Rutgers, Temple, Connecticut, etc... thought he could never be successful in college because of his was under 5'10"? It makes absolutely no sense to me.
Flutie was the same height - and had a pretty solid last year at BC in '84. And obviously he went on to have a top-shelf career in CFL. I think the big knock on a short QB - espy nowadays - is that you get more batted balls, fewer throwing lanes, etc. Flutie was a bit of an interception machine his whole career and his comp% was always middling. Oddly, the ceiling is low for short QBs.....
I think if we're going to have a group called "short QBs" then Brees has to be lumped in there, and he's had HOF career. Wilson on his way to be talked about in the same manner. It's possible to be short and good, it's just a lot harder. I think Mayfield could be one those type of guys. Wouldn't say i'm absolutely certain per say, but the recipe is there.

The Allen report is bullshit. Our buddy with inside knowledge already blew the horn on this thing a while ago. Yes, they're doing added homework on him. I guess Matt Miller has decided to translate that into LOVE... fuck off. I'm pretty sure Allen is the ONLY QB we can be sure Macc will pass on. Too many Hack similarities.
In real news; sounds like Rosen is #1 on our board at this time, and we're open to trading up for him, or anyone else really. We're giving serious consideration to Baker Mayfield.
I can't wait to be past this fucking phase and finally just be cheering for our franchise QB on Sunday. It's been since 2010.
1. Cleveland 2. SF 3. Giants 4. Indy 5. Cincy 6. Denver 7. Chargers 8. TB 9. Cleveland 10. Chicago
So of the 9 teams in front of us (Browns x 2) there are legit only 3 (maybe 4) teams that WON'T draft a QB:
SF, TB and Chicago. Possibly Indy but you never know, they've done it before. MAYBE Cincy but they'd be crazy not to.
Cleveland Giants Denver Chargers and maybe Indy and Cincy all in a competition for a franchise QB. All with a better position to trade up to the SF pick or the Indy pick.
But DAMN did it feel good beating Cleveland and the Bills and Miami!!!!!!!
Yeah BABY, can't WAIT for another decade of suckitude.
Word from inside is The Jets have already settled on the fact that they're trading up as high as they can. You can pretty much circle SF as the target spot... it would have been nice if those fairy fucks could have layed down for the Giants.. but whatever. Moving on.
From the guy who said we had to get Brandon Pettigrew at all costs.
Fuck you, Paradis. Love you, bro.
lol, thanks. I didn't say we needed him at all cost btw, though i did crush on him big time. That was the year we traded up for Sanchez...
What I did lament over that year was the possibilities of running two TE formations (Keller + Pettigrew), or 12 personnel as they call it. I was of course ridiculed. Meanwhile, NE went ahead and drafted Gronk and Hernie to do exactly that and were applauded of course. Since then, the 12 personnel formation has become popular.
