Big shout out to the user how shared the article a few days ago on Tim Rossovich (https://www.si.com/vault/1971/09/20/612423/hes-burning-to-be-a-success).

Great article, they definitely don't make NFL players like that anymore

Odell Beckham should be used as QB more often...Plus he can kick FGs. Some guys are scouted as "athletes" coming out of college, but Beckham is the best example of an ATH in the NFL since JJ Watt took snaps as a TE and caught a couple TDs a few seasons ago.

P.S.: JJ Watt was robbed from 2014 league MVP thanks to a historic season by Aaron Roger;, Watt had something like 20.5 sacks, 1 safety, 1 INT returned 80yds for 1 TD, and 2TDs off of forced fumbles. On offense, 3 catches, 3 TDs.

Chiefs Cut Kareem Hunt After Video of Violence Against Woman

I predict that he'll be on a team next season if he is eligible. Not much of a risky prediction, as his skills and speed are rare among his peers.

What's the difference between & and &&? I've only been taught to use && in my intro-courses.

FSU just can't catch a break under their new headcoach. Sad to see such undisciplined play on their offense w/ multiple illegal formation penalties.

John Urschel Goes Pro in Mathematics

"I have, or had, more math talent than football talent," Urschel tells me. "I fully believe this." But the world is on the lookout for football players. His coaches at Canisius, an all-boys Jesuit high school, continually encouraged him to think big, bigger, biggest. If he worked at it, he could play in college. He could play in the Big Ten. There was a chance he could play in the NFL. From his math teachers? Zero. That changed at Penn State, where Urschel enrolled in 2009 to study math and play football. (He was offered a full scholarship to Stanford, but turned it down; he had already committed to PSU.) If you believe in the ideal of the student-athlete you are going to like the story of John Urschel in college a lot.

Josh McDaniels

Some fans at TB Buccaneers message boards are hoping that he'll become our next HC, while others suspect that the reason he hasn't already been poached from other teams is that there is a backroom deal to anoint him as Belichick's successor.

Navy Man would prefer they wear blues. posted by holden

The jackets the NFL coaches were wearing looked like the Air Force SDU jacket, maybe the Navy Eisenhower jacket, with the army green/brown color. It was an interesting look

Amazing the amount of red flags that were visible on him early on - at UF - and how he was enabled by Urban Meyer, and later on by the Patriots.

Boston Globe has a great serious out about Aaron Hernandez's tragic career and life (tragic because of his upbringing, and throwing away such a promising protectory, leading up to him hanging with the wrong crowd and his horrific crimes): https://apps.bostonglobe.com/spotlight/gladiator/bristol/

I've been listening to it through my NPR app, but that link should lead you there.
