Re: Predict Your Breakout Player for the 2019 Season

Peoples o yea, could be the new QB we signed from IMG. :roll: I'm still not sure what's wrong with being excited about the guy. He's easily one of the best looking QB's, on tape, App has had commit in some time, if not ever. 6'4, can really spin the ball, the ball carries deep, he moves well, has g...

Was Fehr not a breakout guy last season? You saw what happened against Southern once he left the game, right?

Re: Luke Combs

If you like his music or not, you have to respect him for being proud of App and showing it often. Personally I do like his music. His album is great IMO. I don’t think it is “bro” country and I bet his next albums will have more “outlaw” sounds and songs on it. I think it’s hilarious that he, very...

Re: Improving a tradition

Or just scrap "Welcome to the Rock" entirely. There's nothing special about the line. It's always been cheesy. I don't personally think of it as any tradition at all. Growing up a racing fan, THIS was always "The Rock" to me. Kind of rubbed me the wrong way whenever KBS adopted the moniker...I mean...

Re: Athlon 2019

All true, but we have to beat the Carolina Blue leaning refs. Considering it's a 2-1, shouldn't Sun Belt ref's be at UNC? It's not a 2-1. There is one stand-alone game in Chapel Hill and then a home-and-home. Ok so where will the refs be from? The Big 10 refs screwed us at Penn State and we just ab...

Re: Athlon 2019

So they have us losing to both UNC and USC..... You don’t? I don't. I think we split. Likely with the win coming against UNC. Would be nice but history isn't kind to App in regards to P5 wins. Of course the opponents have mostly been different but App had no business losing to Wake Forest and likel...

First week of the season, not Training Camp. Get it right or say nothing at all.

Re: #8 defense according to Bleacher Report

That is high praise. Not sure losing Stout isn't going to hurt a little bit as well. True about Stout, but Markell Clark should be ready for that role. One thing that has been amazing the past two seasons is that the guys stepping into starting roles due to graduation have not only maintained the l...

Re: Myquon Stout (62) Moore (30) Middleton (36) Jets OTA

10:25 mark Myquon did something his teammates liked... He looks the part. Hopefully he make it to preseason because I believe he will surprise some people despite his relatively diminutive frame (which is saying something). He almost reminds me of James Harrison, though I'm not sure how fast James ...

Re: Possible new LB?

I'm all about having as much talent as possible, but there is a part of me also that doesn't like the father/son thing on a team. There's always the potential of it undermining team cohesion and causing resentments if the son winds up starting. I'm sure Roof would handle the situation with integrit...

Re: Undrafted But Signed Free Agents from App

Evans was the best all-purpose player in the league. Evans is good but App's offensive line and scheme never gets enough credit. You could ALMOST plug any running back on the roster in as a starter and get production from them. Evans has the home run speed of course but he isn't a good runner betwe...

Re: Undrafted But Signed Free Agents from App

What is the Jests connection to pick up three UFA from App? I would imagine they took a shot at Doug and they have loved who he is on and off the field so much they went back to the well. It's not just that the Jets are signing App guys, they are signing the LEADERS! Middleton, Moore, Stout; those ...
