#2282357 Things aren't going so well in Bristol

Posted by Brandon on 10 July 2013 - 03:00 AM

Agreed. Don't really care for the hosts of NFL AM but total access is pretty good. The majority of their programming is way better than NFL related stuff that ESPN offers.

 

NFL AM makes me want to jab the remote control through my eye socket it's so terrible. They're trying to make it the Today Show of the NFL and unfortunately, that's a terrible idea full stop.

 

The real problem with ESPN and some of these sports networks is that they've stopped trying to inform the audience and are instead trying to dazzle them. They talk about vague things like "he wanted it more" and "this guy just wins games" rather than "they executed a perfect defense to take their best player effectively out of the game"  or "this guy has a tremendous supporting cast and here's why the wins may not tell the whole story". I understand it's easier to make flashy content, and hell it drove ratings up for a while, but people got bored of it and a lot of people are dropping cable because cable television has literally gone to complete poo over the past 3 years.

 

The worst thing about cable TV at the moment is that the History Channel is now a reality TV network, everything on TruTV is a lie, MTV hasn't shown a music video in prime time since I graduated college, SciFi is now SyFy, Travel Channel is now "slightly weird food network", and ESPN has stopped actually covering sports and has now switched to some sort of athlete melodrama that occasionally airs sporting events as well. I could go on but now I'm too worked up to sleep and I have a meeting in the morning. God dammit.

Some things I noticed in this video and other videos of his I've watched:

-Excellent vision, sees things happening that are not directly in his line of vision.

-Doesn't often lose yardage.

-Very efficient in movement, doesn't make a lot of unnecessary cuts that hurt momentum.

-Patience, willing to let the blocking develop and see what the play is giving him.

-Needs space to operate, has trouble when the defense is on top of him.

I can't believe people are upset about us shoring up our defensive line. DL, OL, and QB are the only players that affect every play on the field, and if we just managed to land 2 good DTs in the same draft that will do more to improve our secondary than any amount of picks spent into a CB or safety.

Just get the best player available. I don't particularly care who it is.
