So did he get demoted from Captain Brissett to Lieutenant? I wanna hear the demotion story. 

Hes gotta earn the Captain title, being he was basically 2nd in command behind Luck, the Lieutenant thing fits.  I just hope he's better at navigation than most Lieutenants (Vet joke)

Maybe it’s the history buff in me, but in the civil war African Americans fought, and fought hard but none were officers..

Whoever runs this account is very talented.  They make me smile.

I feel sad for the people who not only don't like it but feel compelled to criticize it.

We need more things that make us smile not less

No. Same rank, different service. Admiral is navy. General is Army, Air and Marine. For the Civil War land based army the twitter account uses, the General would be the best fit as football is a land based sport.

Yeah, and maybe total historical accuracy is not necessary for the meme...

So we're nitpicking a fun thing because of authenticity over portrayal of a black person as a civil war officer?

 

Geez.  Lighten up Francis's.

Sequels are very seldom as good as the original.

 

The problem with that is that Brissett does not look like a civil war soldier.  That was the fun of Capt. Andrew Luck.  Luck sort of looked like a civil war soldier.

That was awesome but it really was the letters that he wrote and the stuff he made up based on real events that was so creative.

 

I mean, squirrel oil? :lol:

It was but his looks is what got this whole thing started.  Especially after he played Ryan Fitzpatrick and they both kind of looked live civil war soldiers.  I think that's what got this idea rolling.

I was thinking something like:

 

Dearest sister,

 

With Captain Luck resigning his commission, I have received a promotion to a commanding officer role.  I pray that I am up to the task of filling such capable shoes.  The first assignment for our unit is to pacify a group wildcats that is making noise to the Southeast.  Alas, it is a meaningless and trivial matter, and I suspect that General Reich will likely entrust it to some of the lesser experienced members of the unit.  We have received word that many of these soldiers shall be dismissed from the unit after this task is accomplished.  They will return to their farms, but if the Lord wills it, we may find several of them in our midst once again later in the campaign.   I must recommence drilling with the unit, for there are troubling reports from the west that promise the possibility of a pitched battle in a fortnight’s time.

 

Yours truly,

 Jacoby

We beg your pardon, Sir?

Ok, maybe none of those guys specifically look like Brissett, so I might get your point.

That’s really good. From what I’m reading many of the Lt. Brissett posts are from different people, an open audition of sorts? Put yours out there, it’s good!

I bet it is lmao . These never get old. I hope Jacoby proves everyone wrong and plays well. If he just puts up something like 28 TD's and only throws 10 or so INT's we will win some games. Our O.Line should provide a decent running game and we have a good defense for a change. Also Reich is a better play caller compared to Chuck. The system Jacoby was in 2 years ago nearly got him killed. Reich's system is much better for a guy like Jacoby.

Whoever this is, it isn't the same.  The phrasing is much less eloquent, and the vocabulary is nowhere near the old one in some instances...

 

Not to mention the Photoshop skills.... Can't pass JB off as a civil war officer in a baseball hat....cmon! Lol

    • Not sure if you saw my response to someone else who asked about that.   Smith played guard, in part because his arms are too short for tackle on the NFL level for most teams.   I think he's 32 1/4 or 32 1/2.    Most teams prefer 33 1/4 at a minimum if not longer.   That's the metric I'm talking about.     Ballard has talked about it often since drafting Smith.   He was a guard when he got forced into starting at RT.   Ballard admits he didn't think Smith could play tackle effectively at this level.   The scouts insisted he could.   Eventually, Ballard was running out of options and thought he didn't have much to lose.    Smith started,  did well, and we've never looked back.   I'll try to find his Combine Profile page....    And here you go...   you can see the page shows arms measured at 32 1/4.    Minimum desired as at least one full inch longer...   https://www.nfl.com/prospects/braden-smith/3219534d-4908-0765-f244-89a603c3a555  
    • I don’t think the defense will be worse but I’d be lying if I said coverage isn’t a huge concern. We are banking a LOT on Rock improving and becoming a shutdown corner, Rhodes rolling back the clock three years, Moore staying healthy, and Willis holding down the other safety spot where he was serviceable against the run but bad against the pass. We are a couple injuries away from starting Lafayette Pitts and Rolan Milligan, and we know there will be injuries. I did not like the way QBs were carving up the secondary late in the year, although I think a more competent offense will help immensely. Even Famous Jameis carved us up and he was practically blind. 
    • I haven't seen those at all. Like another person says, please show them/link them.
    • I've got a feeling Bruce Arians is going to get Tom Brady killed out there. Tom is going to need a lot more avocado ice-cream in that TB12 diet of his.
    • Hooker!! Hands down he in my opinion is the best player on our defense. I know his stats were down this year but his presence is definitely felt when he is on the field. Yet people around here want him gone.
