    Unless Jerry gives them the free pass...

    Once again this team is a joke and a circus...and as another poster pointed out a walking mouth of cliches (which are never backed up with actions).

    I doubtful you'll see me back into full time recapping because other than drafts or new coaching hires there's really not much worth recapping.

    I mostly liked recapping Parcells PCs because they were interesting to me. He was a good story teller. He wasn't afraid to pull back the curtain and give an honest critique of a player. People can make fun of him because he got a man crush on Willie Blade or Daleroy Stewart, but the nature of the salary cap era NFL is sometimes you just have to go with your gut and go with unheralded and unproven players. Nobody is building the 76 Steelers or 93 Cowboys roster these days. Sometimes these players let you down or don't meet your expectations. It happens to every coach in the NFL, at least Parcells had the stones to put his name on it. He was also easy to type up while listening because he concisely conveyed information. His narratives went from Point A to a Point B. Jerry is a nightmare to recap because he's the opposite of Parcells ... he starts out at Point A, then detours into Point D, then meanders over to Point N, then loops back over to Point G and then finally gets to Point B only after the "Where was I going with this?" lightbulb moment comes on. I could type up word for word what Jerry types and it's completely incoherent. I often times find myself having to paraphrase what I thought he meant, but then I'm puttting my own words into his mouth with my own biases.

    I wasn't particularly compelled by Wade's PCs because there was too much sunshine pumping and he rarely said anything but glowing positives about everybody and everything. Garrett isn't much fun to recap because he rapid fires a bunch of cliches faster than I can type, and the end product isn't particularly informative or insightful.

    The nice thing is DC.com archives all of this video and audio on their website, so no one has to depend on me.

    IR = my favorite poster
    Naw. Victor Butler is only 6'2" so I don't know if OLB is the position he's referring to.

    I know we love huge TE's and DE's. Seems like all our acquisitions in recent years at those positions have been 6'4", 6'5"+.

    Don't look now, boys. We're about 24 hours away.

    I've been trying really hard not to get too excited. Because I'm often left disappointed in our eventual class. But it's hard. The future stars of tomorrow are for the taking this week and we've got as good a shot as anyone at them.

    DeCastro, please!

    I read from some experts (so called) that say he is as ready for starting in the NFL as any other player (was it Zimmerman for the Colsts?).

    But, it was also said the he plays with a "mean streak" all the time. To me, that is what we need on offense....actually with the whole team.

    Could not agree more. I used to log on every day during training camps to get IR's recaps. He does a fantastic job. Much appreciated.

    I always enjoy hearing these types of things about players and coaches. It gives so much insight in to their lives (or lack their of, really)

    Marc Colombo added in his press conference that he was excited for the future of the team under Garrett.

    For all the flak that Jerry gets he really did Marc a solid there by doing the PC w/ Colombo to make it official.

    Totally agree. Marc really did work his butt off the entire time he was here and was a great leader by example guy. I don't think there's a single fan that isn't happy that he was recognized for how much he meant to the team in the relatively short time he wore the star.

    You got to love that story about Jason from Marc. I'm puting all my faith in the future with him.
