Typical for that joker.
Oh, okay. Then it must be about that guy that had the fish tank built on that Animal Planet show!
Still don't get why they didn't use him in _that_ play in '15.
There have been endless explanations of that. Most of them have to do with the clock, how many time outs they had, and making sure the next two plays were less predictable. I'm not sure I buy it, but the statistics for the season say it was a good play to call. Oh, well. There's always next year. And then another next year by now.
Any explanation that comes anywhere close to using the words "wasting a down" gets my ire up. Nope. Not gonna listen. Dumb play call, pure and simple.
But yeah. Awesome way to announce it. They didn't sign him to anything too front-loaded, did they?
If the first run doesn't succeed call time, try another run and with no huddle offense try a pass at 4th down, but this was just plain stupid. Obviously it was predictable, because the Pats packed the middle they knew a pass was more likely. I'm no die hard football fan and don't watch every week, but this was so obvious.
They say that running backs don't last that long. The Beast has pretty much perpetuated that thinking. At the top of his game 2 seasons ago. Non-existent this past season. Wait, who were we talking about again? Was there somebody here who's not here now?
Yeah it's crazy. He was a yard away from a possible Super Bowl MVP just one year ago.
I'm a basketball guy and it's crazy how career trajectories compare to NFL players. Tim Duncan's peak was 13 years ago and he's still serviceable for a top contender.
Look at Demarco Murray. He's the top rusher in the NFL in 2014 and the Cowboys let him go. Then he practically disappears for his new team. Will he ever be back? It's not like he has an attitude, like some players. It's not like he's had 10 hard seasons under his belt. It will be interesting to see where he lands in 2016.
Emmett Smith played 15 seasons. In his final year, he rushed for 937 yards for Arizona, the same number of yards as his rookie season in Dallas.
Lynch got his money, that's what he wanted last year. The past season was a formality.
