    I saw that........what is this......Martavis Bryant, take 3 or Take 4? One couldn't deny his talent. It's just a shame he couldn't control his demons.

    Yesterday, with all this "white powder" the scenario went: whiteout, stop, sun out, whiteout.....repeat. Big wrecks on 77 [[which they closed it both north & southbounds) for hours, & the multiple pileup on 90, Geez, one would think everyone in this neck of the woods would KNOW how to drive in this weather.

    In light of this consistently inconsistent weather we've decided this isn't for us anymore. Going south....but not too much.

    I've gone South. Nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there again. And it was cold in Columbus but not one flake fell from the sky. Next week should be a beauty though for me and you.

  3. #3403
    Not that south, Jerry. Too hot. Give me some mountains [[as in Smoky).
    We had about 2-3 inches.....& guess what? It's all gone now. I can take the rain but not the snow.

    Steelers making more cap room with the reworking of TE Eric Ebron's contract. Interesting to see exactly what they're gonna do.

    Hey jerry,them gizzards didn't have beal or the kid and got thier brains beat in by the hornets the other night, if it wasn't for the rockets and timberwolves we might have a shot at the first pick...never mind.... They would muck it up,sigh!!!

    How bout that basketball game last night [Gonzaga vs UCLA?] THAT was a game for the ages. Reminded me of that 1992 game.

  6. #3406
    It gave me horrible flashbacks to the end of the Nova vs Carolina game in 2015. I have no dog in the fight between Gonzaga and UCLA but for as exciting as I am for the Zags, I feel bad for the young men from UCLA. But that's how this thing goes. Tomorrow's game should be a doozy.

    I'm not sure who to root for.

  7. #3407
    I'm not sure who to root for either, Jerry. All I can say is let the two good teams go at it.

  8. #3408
    I think I'll root for Gonzaga. Not for any good reason other than I like Mark Few and it'd be good for a mid-major to win a D-1 championship. There's going to be a lot of great guard play and that should make for a good game.

    After that, it's going to be a long 3 1/2 weeks until the draft. All eyes are on Atlanta with their pick at #4.

  9. #3409
    Well, it didn't turn out the way you wanted, Jerry. Baylor came to bat & hit a home run. I kinda feel sorry for Gonzaga since they were undefeated.

    In other news Sam Darnold to the Panthers. I knew he'd go somewhere [[other than stay with the Jets).

  10. #3410
    From Adam Schefter: "With teams locked into the first three overall pics, the Atlanta Falcons now have received trade calls from multiple teams and "are open to moving" out of the No. 4 spot, per source.
    What do you think, Jerry?

  11. #3411
    We need help at so many positions. A trade is the responsible thing to do as long as the compensation matches. I think a team that has multiple picks between #10 and #100 is going to come out of the draft very pleased. Of course, Miami has #18, #36, #50 and #81. If Atlanta can trade down to ~#10 or so and net another 2nd round pick and a first rounder in 2022, I'm all for it. Otherwise, I'm hoping we select Kyle Pitts at #4.

  12. #3412
    People keep asking me who the Steelers will draft. I say "well, we'll both find out when it happens." There's just too many "draft experts" for me.

  13. #3413
    Well with darnold gone,i"m waitng to see what we do at[no.19]as all of the good qb's will be gone,maybe we take a linebacker or o-lineman.

  14. #3414
    WFT is going to draft Kellen Mond in round 2. I have seen it.

  15. #3415
    That's pretty good, Jerry!!!!!!!! None of us have the input into our favorite teams so I just stay out of it. I do know what the Steelers need, that's all.

    Speaking of the Steelers...did you happen to see the latest comment by Steven Nelson on Twitter? I think I commented on his "exit" from our team.

  16. #3416
    When you're the only one talking, it's easy to paint the picture of being a victim. We'll see where he winds up. Don't be surprised if he winds up back in the Steel City after the draft, though.

    From profootballtalk.com:
    The Steelers abruptly released cornerback Steven Nelson last month, after giving him a chance to seek a trade. The team did not give Nelson a chance to take a pay cut before cutting him.

    “I want to make it very clear,” Nelson said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via Mark Kaboly of TheAthletic.com, “there was never a discussion of me taking a pay cut. I was never even given that opportunity to take a pay cut.”


    It’s unclear whether Nelson would have accepted less than the $8.25 million he was due to earn this season. He said that he wanted an extension, one that would have created cap space while acknowledged that he had outperformed his contract. Eventually, he simply wanted out, pleading with the team on social media to not hold him hostage.


    Nelson’s line surely was influenced by the mantra from coach Mike Tomlin, “We can’t do this with hostages, man. We need volunteers.” Regardless, he didn’t get a chance to volunteer to remain on the team for less money.


    Nelson added that 10 to 15 teams have serious interest in his services. Given that the draft is only 23 days away, it’s possible at this point that Nelson’s best opportunity for a new team will come after interested teams address their needs at the position, or not, via incoming rookies.

    Philip Adams, Jerry? Wow!!

  18. #3418
    Yeah, horrible situation. His dad is blaming CTE. Of course, right wing Twitter is trying to suggest that nobody is playing up the racial angle of a Black man who murdered a white family. Twitter gonna twit.

  19. #3419
    Twitter people can be really vicious. I hope his family allows for a look at his brain [[like Seau).

  20. #3420
    Well, what do you know? The family has signed for the coroner to perform an autopsy, which will include testing his brain for CTE. Good for them.

  21. #3421
    HEY JERRY,SOMEBODY BREAK UP THAT DYNAMO KNOWN AS...DA GIZZARDS...THOSE BLIND DOGS ACTUALLY BEAT A GOOD TEAM[THE WARRIORS]LAST NIGHT...[and folks don't believe in leprechauns, hehehe]TWO IN A ROW..BUT THAT BEAL SHOT WAS A SUPERSTAR MOVE,I'M OUT!!

  22. #3422
    Jai, I saw a two minute sequence where Russ dished three passes straigth to the basket that should have been assists and his teammates missed all three. The Quizzards were up by 11 at the beginning of the sequence and wound up being up by 7 instead of possibly 13 had they just made layups. Russ is going to start grumbling soon.

    Moe, I'm convinced that the NFL and college football are going to fade out significantly shortly after somebody devises a way to test for CTE in a living subject. When parents start seeing their high schoolers already showing brain damage, they're going to steer their kids into less dangerous activities. I wouldn't be surprised if the NFL pays to keep such a test from being used.

    I think there will always be organized college and professional football because a lot will think it's worth the risk. But what we'll see after a CTE test comes to use will be a greatly sanitized version where almost any hard hit is penalized.

  23. #3423
    You may be right. I just remember that movie "Concussion" & the scene where Will Smith [playing the pathologist) has a small jar filled with a ping pong ball floating on a bit of liquid. He says "this is your brain." After that, plus incidents with Mike Webster, Junior Seau [among others) has me convinced.

  24. #3424
    I tried to send my brain in for testing...they sent it back marked-postage due!!

  25. #3425
    Uh huh......I believe it

  26. #3426
    Hehehehehehe!!!

  27. #3427
    How bout Julian Edelman retiring? Certainly a very talented receiver.

  28. #3428
    He had a catch in Super Bowl LI that was literally one inch off the ground. It was a very low ball and he had three defensive backs in very tight coverage. Shades of the Immaculate Reception, huh? That catch absolutely killed my team's chances to close out that game. I remember he was brought in as a Danny Amendola clone. He was a MAC QB that converted to WR. He had a heckuva career and will not be missed.

    With that said, in my opinion he's not a hall of famer.

  29. #3429
    JERRY,THEM DARN GIZZARDS ARE CAUSING ME TO DRINK[stop that snickering, hehe]I'LL BE DOGGONE IF THEM BLIND DOGS DIDN'T WIN AGAIN...UTAH??? WHAT THE 411 IS GOIN ON HERE,THEY BEAT THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE AND THE THEY'LL LOSE TO-HOWARD UNIVERSITY[and everybody beats Howard, hehehe]YEAH I KNOW-ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT..BUT THESE ARE THE [NODEFENSECANTSHOOTNONCOACHINGGOODFORNOTHING] GIZZARDS HERE...I NEED A DRINK!!!

  30. #3430
    Julian Edelman is as much a HOF'er as you or me, Jerry. Great WR [[Kent State, no less) Yes, shades of the Immaculate Reception...but....not
    Not a contender for Canton, Ohio IMHO.

  31. #3431
    Steelers brought back LB Vince Williams. Williams had several offers & chose to stay for less money.

    Steelers also sign backup Josh Dobbs to a 1yr contract. Gonna be interesting to see who will be the #3 QB [[behind Big Ben & Mason Rudolph) ..Dobbs or Haskins??

    And the Browns signed Jadeveon Clowney. How's that gonna work out? His stats aren't all that.

  32. #3432
    Clowney has phat stats for the amount that he plays. The problem is that he's always hurt. If Cleveland gets 15 games or more out of him [[which I doubt), their defense is going to be crazy good.

    And if Haskins can't supplant Rudolph as backup to Ben, then he might be done in the league.

  33. #3433
    I agree with both of your statements, Jerry. Clowney keeps getting hurt. He'll really have to prove himself to a lot of people. But, if he does he'll be a force to be reckoned with.

    Haskins proved to be a no brainer for the Steelers. Steelers are out virtually nothing if he doesn't perform. I'm a big fan of the Rocketman [[Dobbs). More brain power there.

  34. #3434
    If Atlanta had taken a flyer on Haskins, we wouldn't be hearing all of this chatter about taking a QB at #4. He should have been Matt Ryan's heir apparent. He also would have benefited from working closely with a 14-year veteran.

  35. #3435
    I agree. The moment of truth will come sooner than later for Haskins. Hope at least he can grow up & see what a chance he's been given.
