  1. Looks like down the road, we haven't seen the last of those Manning boys in the NFL.
  2. To put it in a nut shell on the Colt-Chiefs game that night, "Even a blind squirrel can find a nut, once in a while"
  3. Maybe JB forgot his " Snickers Bars" after the beginning of last season, An he was just not himself. That theory could explain it.
  4. If the Patriots don't end up signing him to a 1 year contract, then obviously they think he has nothing left to give. Why in the world would we want him. The Brady Era is over, people need to quit remembering him the way he use to be and face the reality of his best playing days are over. It happens to all of the great ones. Time catches up to every athlete.
  5. When the leg problem before training camp started, I thought, maybe just being cautious. Then as time went on, OK maybe this is more serious than they are letting on. But when Luck announced, he was retiring, right before the season opener, All the wind blew out my sails, It felt almost surreal. This could not be happening, no not now, I tried to be optimistic, as the season started, and it looked like we had hope after Luck maybe, Then once the wheels started coming off the reality set in. The signs were there, But we always hope for the best.
  6. I'm sure you are right, but in this year's draft and FA we should, address more attainable upgrades to our roster by not reaching early for a QB.
  7. We could also draft for needs other than a QB, Roll with Brissett one more year, save some cap space, and go all in for Trevor Lawrence in next year's draft if we crash & burn.
  8. It boilies down to this we need to think past jacoby as our future QB. We have got to create a future qb for years t come as our savior, simple as that.
  9. Still think even though we won handily, against the Panthers due to running game key turnovers, great punt returns, The inability to throw the ball long, is a major concern, Now it might be some receiving issues, but I did see some replays where receivers were open and Jacoby was not picking up on seeing the whole field. When he does pass it is always short passes that most defenses seem to exploit, and do not feel threaten about his long ball threat. Until he shows that he can stretch the field long, this is a problem against better teams.
  10. I'm just hoping that we can at least play a competitive game and be physical, give it our best shot.
  11. Injuries is something every NFL team has to try to overcome, When you have to have every starter playing, to be competitive, Then it shows that we still have a lot depth positions on our squad to fill.
  12. Maybe if they had won more Championships, in their team's history, it wouldn't had mattered, as much.
  13. Just glad Jacoby is back, if only TY could be ready to play.
  14. Maybe Quinton Nelson Will be our starting Full back , in short yardage plays, LOL.
  15. But if you add Sanders to more games than he missed in his career, Maybe Manning would of had more Super Bowls at INDY. then if you subtract Manning from 2006, then even with Sanders we might have not won. See how this Adding and then subtracting can change things?
  16. Well I guess the NFL see things differently, As the suspensions will be leveed.
  17. For someone who insists that he just wants to play in the NFL. It would seems he demands a lot of , what other teams need to do to hire him. I don't know to many other businesses, Where it seems that the one that wants to get hired, demands the terms of the interview.
  18. If you can't see he is on the down swing of his carrier, his body, is beat up, he can't run or scrabble the way he use too.. and he chokes in adversity. pouts instead of developing mental toughness , Then maybe it is you who is speculating on what he might me able to become down the road. Tic Toc. A QB is a different breed, When you are use to winning , the same way you did in college, and your skills , that got you to that level deteriorate, Not everyone can reinvent their selves. The only one in recent memory, that changed his style of play and still was relevant for a while was Randell Cunningham, He had a similar style of play as Cam.
  19. It's really a more of a sad thing than a funny one that is going on in the NFL. If some players have really mental issues it's something that should be addressed.
  20. There is no excuse for any of that behavior in the NFL, Miles Garret, seems to have a rap sheet on doing the wrong thing on the field, recently this year , and it seems he has escalated it to the point of what transpired last night. Regardless, of what you think of last night's video replay, There is a major concern in the escalation in behavior problems , this year that Miles Garret has been involved in. There is a pattern , That should not be over looked, It seems if you looked at his past problems , that his pattern seems to be escalating, and that should be a red flag to what is going on with Miles. The major concern at this point should be , Miles does need mental help in the future , if he want's to stay in the NFL.
  21. I hate to burst your bubble, but I have know Cam since his days at Auburn. I thought out of their National Championship that he would be a big factor in the NFL. I have followed Cam since his days as Auburn. I have met him from college, and know him, So before you think you can judge me , make sure you know the facts! Cam was , I repeat was an exceptional talent , but now given his body wear , and his inability to learn from his mistakes, despite his mental blindness. in the NFL. He is on the down swing of his career. Mental readiness has a lot to do in your NFL career. I will always admire what Cam did for my beloved Tigers in College , But that does not always transpire in the long term in the NFL. Buy the way my sister and brother in-law live in Alabama and for 45 years pulled for Auburn, so don't give me that crap that we don't know about Alabama players. Sorry to go off on you "jvan" but don't just assume you perspicacity is above everyone else's knowledge .
  22. Hey, they say games can be decided by inches sometimes , We have been very close in a lot of our losses , I luv what Adam V has meant for this team, but putting your devotion aside for a hall of famer and being analytical, Regardless, who has kicked for our team this year, barring the hall of fame kicker we love , We have got to be better at points after TD and FG percentage in clutch games , no matter who our kicker is! This has to get be better! If Adam can turn it around, then fine, but we can't keep doing this over and over. We really do at this point need to look in the future for a younger leg accurate kicker, and also maybe a punter.
  23. If we had everybody healthy, then we would have a great chance to make waves but, we do not at this point have the luxury of great depth. But I feel Jacoby at this point is a must to have healthy, if we are to make any waves in this division.
  24. So long as we are not a player in it. Cam Newton regardless, of what his talents use to be, never matured mentally, in the NFL. He sulks too much when things don't go his way, instead of being a man and learning from it. Very child like in his maturity as a player, and with the mileage on his body now, he is only on the down swing of what's left of his career.
