Good move! Love the man! He's such an inspirational person!

 

I found out the other day that the guy lives about 10 minutes away from my condo in Florida (I need to get away from Montreal sometimes :P). Beautiful home.

I just want to see him dance and eat grass before he gets on camera.

Host: " What do you think of that Ray?"

*Music blares, smoke rolls out, Ray bursts thru the door, suit and tie, starts to dance. Grabs a chunk of grass, inhales it, "whooaaaa" as he dances to his seat. *

Ray: I think it's a really good move for the Chargers. *blades of grass stuck between his teeth, dirt smeared on his face*

oooooooo..I called that one like mos ago...or rather I thought he'd be a good analyst when he retired.

 

I wouldn't be much on coaching.

Anyone else think he will go into coaching in a few years?

I could see it, but I think that's a good 4-6 years down the road. Not sure if he'll make it to head coach, but he could be a good position coach have.

Can you put Ray Lewis on with ESPN's legal analyst & #52 can chime in everytime the topic obstruction of justice comes up? Hey, sugar Ray knows all about that ladies & gentlemen.  haha

Personally,  I don't know why more athletes don't want a job with NFL Network. ESPN is like amateur open mike night with no cover charge for alcohol at a comedy club. I don't think very highly of ESPN & I would be wary of working for Walt Disney & Mickey Mouse.  I like adult humor too much.  ;)

 

Also, I hate how ESPN mixes together sports genres all the time: Basketball, Baseball, college football, & the NFL. It drives me nuts! I want to take professional football 24/7. I could care less about LeBron James & Matt Ryan comparisons about Playoff runs.

Ray looked like a pimp on ESPN the other day I'd say if Skip opened his mouth Ray would back hand Skip & put him back out on his corner .

    •   The problem with "needs" based drafting is when teams do it when the talent ISN'T there.    When a team reaches.    As Brian Billick has famously said "'need' is a terrible judge of talent"     And I agree with that.   But here's the deal,   the strength of this draft is defense.    And the talent is going to be there clearly in the first three rounds to draft defense, defense and more defense WITHOUT having to reach for a player who doesn't deserve to be taken there.     I would NOT recommend drafting defensive players when they're just not there.   But they are there this year and we need to take advantage of it.   Plus,  if you can make the argument that it's not smart/wise to draft a RB in the first round,  then I can clearly make an argument that at this point,  taking a guard in the 2nd round is putting too many assets into one area.   How many O-lineman over how many years started off as either an undrafted free agent,  or middle or late draft pick.     Too many times to count.     What we're talking about is the difference between you being willing to spend a 2 on a non-premium position in a year where (A) we desperately need defense and (B) the strength of this draft IS defense and me willing to spend a late 4 on the same non-premium position.       I think to pass on a defensive player for an offensive player at a non-premium position is terribly unwise.   I think the Draft Gods have smiled upon the Colts this year.    This draft matches up with our needs.    Defense and a future starting running back.      I'd like not to spit in the faces of those Gods.  
    • And he's kind of an *hole....if he's not winning, he's a lockerroom cancer...
    •   Agreed on his ball tracking.  It's... a flickering hope right now.  But...   Imo of course.  As I don't know what assignments are given.  But to me Green has severe problems adjusting to defensive shifts.  I've seen a couple of plays that I will try to find tomorrow that illustrate this.  One that I can recall is Green should shift over depending on the defense to either a more central spot or cover over. And either he doesn't shift at all and we give up an intermediate pass or he does shift but late and then ends up being in a terrible spot to make a play on the ball.  Sometimes I think this is his scenario instead of the actual "ball tracking".  Which actually gives me a ton of hope because if he can improve this mental part of the game it might reflect a ton in his "ball tracking ability" as he will set himself up for success instead of failure.  Of course I still don't like that he has a tendency to completely bring his head down if he needs to break.  And his flip (when he does flip which isn't often) is usually very messy and costs him lots of ground.   As a DB... raw would be fitting for him even after this season. But raw is not bad.  Just needs work.
    •   Do you have a link to this and where it says it?
    •   Oh gosh, you are bringing back the full range of emotions here. Garcon catches that ball then I am convinced the Colts win the game.

      Oh BTW, awesome read OP.
