not really. plenty of white qb's get their games picked apart. how much of it you see in public discourse has to do with the narratives surrounding a draft. how much competition he faces. stuff like that.
the other question on something like this with fields is how well one reasonably expects a third-year college player to "scan the field" and how much that can be improved. few of those dudes are getting to their third read in college.
you'll have to forgive me. i grew up in a time when it was clear that teenagers talking like adults got treated like adults. i can't imagine being that age telling CAM NEWTON that he's "ass." you serious?
i know that when you get the rep of "great recruiter," you never lose it. but it feels like it's been a while since rodney garner was a great recruiter. great for delivering the word uga thought cam newton was a tight end, tho.
yup. tell me where you work and i'll question that sh t, too.
one could argue the two men most responsible for getting head coaching opportunities for black coaches in the nfl were bill walsh and tony dungy. having worked for, or been recommended, by those guys went a long way.
there’s no current analogue to either guy.
which is to say, it’s disheartening that nfl owners don’t care about improving the hiring record. but are there any coaches other than arians explicitly trying to do something to make things better?
also, you guys are reading this wrong. i wasn't talking about washington releasing him. we knew that was going to happen before 2021 started. i'm saying it's possible he may never spend a full season on anyone's roster ever again. ask paxton lynch about it
when i was growing up, i hung out a lot at the barbershop right near prairie view's campus. i'd be there just about every day for a while, and all the older professors got haircuts there. one was a dude named professor stewart.
prof. stewart didn't have much reason to go to the barbershop, but mr. kirby would always comb his hair up and cut it like mr. clarence cut cuba gooding's hair in coming to america. scissors moving, but no hair hitting the ground.
gets to virginia tech as a five-star recruit. shares the job with sean glennon as a freshman (tangent: if you want to see a game where it seems like the defense has 15 players, check out va tech-lsu from 2007).
plan was to redshirt him in '08, but tech lost to east carolina in their first game, and the line was too bad for glennon to do anything behind it.
sooooo welcome back, tyrod. that's...not really a good break for tyrod. you get to play because you're fast enough to save yourself
something folks probably can't get from watching on tv is how the former athletes who are now my colleagues take the same approach and pride in their work from the field and use it in broadcasting. and they're *much* more open to critique than us "real" journalists.
and @Foxworth24 isn't just jumping on tv talking. he's hitting the road, doing magazine features, something i personally wouldn't have had the confidence to do until very recently. a rare talent indeed.
i just wanna know who encouraged those ohio state players to put that out. wasn't any need to, as far as i can tell. i think that's the part that's uncomfortable. feels like someone grown encouraged them to undercut their peers.
in 2005, jesse jackson was at the nabj convention in atlanta. this was probably the time when i was most inclined toward skepticism toward jesse (loooooong discussion for another day).
anyway, jesse was there to let people know the voting rights act was up for renewal.
to me, this seemed like a bit of grandstanding from jesse. i mean, the voting rights act was up for renewal. got it. but...i mean, it's not like they'd ever get rid of the voting rights act. they couldn't be that crazy or shameless. we were *past that*, right?
