This first is Jets DB Salim Hakeem, saving a TD by catching Sammy Watkins of the Bills in a pre-mature celebration. In my mind, too much was made of what a dope Watkins was, and NOT ENOUGH was made of Mr. Hakeem.
Busting your ass to make a play when all appears lost, is the absolute nuclear core of what you want in your players. And Hakeem has it! I mean LOOK at that still photo! Awesome! He should be allowed to punch both Geno Smith and Michael Vick in the jejunum as hard as he wants those guys not showing 1/10th the amount of hustle and focus as he did on one play.
Then of course, there’s Jay Cutler. Unliked by most of his own fan base, he’s growing more and more hatable inside the locker-room. There’s the awesome “Smokin’ Jay Cutler” website full of photoshops..but HEY WHOA!!!!??
Look at that photo!
This is the look of a dude who would ask you for a bag of your urine standing outside a 7-11, and when you asked him why he’d say: “Here’s 5 bucks. Don’t worry about it…”
Oh sure… it’s a REDSKINS “SuperCut” of the rivalry. What the hell else would you expect!
NOTE: At least half of these hits would be illegal now. Oh, how fun the NFL USED to be!
So tonite, Jay Gruden pulls on his lucky socks called “Colt McCoy” and we’ll just see what happens. Hell, it’s not at all inconceivable that Colt plays great and the Redskins stun the 6-1 Cowboys under the JerryTron as 9.5 point underdogs.
But I’m not counting on it.
My problem with this move – aside from it being patently “dead end’ in nature – is that I wish Gruden did more to coach Kirk Cousins up, and BUILD his confidence – rather than burn it to the ground.
I saw this clip of Jags coach Gus Bradley with his young signal caller, high first rounder Blake Bortles. It was dramatic the difference. Sure I could do without much of the patently absurd “rah rah” from this guy, but hey – it’s his style.
Bradley makes sure to tell Bortles to “keep his head up” on the sidelines after picks. Good advice! Now, it doesn’t cure everything. Bortles three 3 picks in that game, and 3 more this Sunday against the Dolphins.
I look at so much shitty quarterbacking around this league from week to week, I just don’t think Cousins was anywhere near bad enough to be pulled. But this being Washington, and Gruden being a “win instantly” kind of guy I suppose… he had no time for patience.
Or maybe he’s already feeling the heat from the Belt Buckle Kid? Who knows?
And here’s his weekly visit on our show! The man is 0-7 picking 1 game against the Vegas number every week people! DOCUMENTED! You might want to start listening.. and FADING HIM big time!
He’s ice cold… like Coors beer!!!
So earlier this year Stephen Tulloch, linebacker, Detroit Lions, blew out his knee celebrating a sack of Aaron Rodgers.
Stupid. Pointless. Painful.
However…. NOT as bad as THIS GUY.
Let it be said forever: “Act like you’ve been there…”
