Blackened grouper bites, if I have some left in the freezer.

Haven't pulled the trigger yet. Still up in the air on which brand (I'm not brand loyal by any stretch).  The Sony 4k TVs consistently rank near the top in the rankings I've seen so far. Leaning toward Samsung because of price though.

That's nice. I just buy poo and tell my wife later. Her response? "Ok"

 

She has no idea how much money I have invested in fishing equipment.

 

Of course I have no idea how much she has spent on shoes.

 

So yeah, our marriage is based on looking the other way. Sounds healthy.


In Topic: The Shula hate is overblown.

People always place their displeasure towards coaches.  Why?  Because we all think we can do what they do.  We know we can't block the other team's defensive end (as bad as Bell is, he'd kill any of us trying to rush the quarterback).  We know we can't cover and tackle opposing wide receivers (as slow as Roman Harper is, he's more athletic than any of us).

 

But most of us have played sports back in the day, and we watch a lot of it.  That automatically makes us experts in our own minds.

 

And you know what?  Some of us might have the instincts, knowledge, and work ethic to be an NFL coach (we're talking very small percentage).  But we aren't at practice every day, watching film on these guys, and we haven't lived the game like these guys.

 

I'm not a big Shula fan either. Just trying to point out some different viewpoints.

 

Sometimes lack of production is coaching. Sometimes it's players. I have a feeling this is a combination of both.  I guess it just depends on if you think you have someone better in mind, and if it would set the team back a step or two especially early in the year.

Amazing the vitriol with which some people speak.

 

I think we definitely need an upgrade in talent at the LT position.  That's one of the most demanding positions on the field, a place where if you get beat or make a mistake the whole world sees it.

 

I don't think he's starting NFL material but I'm sure he'll get another opportunity elsewhere. I'm not going to bad mouth our players just because they aren't playing very well, unless I see it as an effort/attitude type thing.

 

Also, some folks thought Jordan Gross was trash. Haven't heard a peep from them lately.
