Re: ESPN Is Dumb

I have zero use for ESPN, without Chris Berman.
All I ever see there is social justice crap.

Re: ESPN Is Dumb

If we signed Colin Kaepernick, the ESPN SJW's would pick us to go 12-4 knowing full well that Brees is still the starter. That's how credible they are.

ESPN is just a shell of its self

That's what you get for watching it for anything other than actual games. Even doing that you still sometimes have to mute it though.

Hope they bring Disney down to the point that they have to pull the plug on it
That's because Venus Williams is having a comeback year.

Chad Johnson had knee injuries, Andre Johnson was about 31 before he slowed down, not 28. Calvin had some kind of injury that wouldn't go away, and apparently was sick of the Lions, so he just walked away. Jerry Rice and Tim Brown were productive into their late thirties, and even early 40's for Jerry. Steve Smith played forever, and as much as I didn't care for his attitude, he stayed quite productive. Randy Moss was dominant (whenever he wanted to be) for about 11 years. If receivers stay healthy, they don't get "old" at 28. RB's do. Now, everyone slows down around 30, but when you're talking about the elite receivers, they don't usually fall off a cliff at that age. Julio isn't showing any signs of slowing down, so to say he's going to suddenly get old this year is rather nonsensical, in my opinion.

He's closer to 29. He will start showing signs this year. Next year really start showing it. The body starts breaking down at 26. Gradual process but 29 very noticeable. What makes him great is the speed. Once that is gone lights out which will be next year but his numbers will fall this year. Good receiver but the party is over with. Should have an ok season though. He won't be WR1 next year I know that much.

Well if you wanna be technical about it, we start dying from the moment we are born. It really doesn't matter how old he is (he's basically 28 and a half) if the signs aren't there that he's slowing down. Yes, one day that will happen to him, but he has been extremely productive and not shown any signs of obvious physical breakdown. So, with that in mind, I don't expect to see anything different from him this year. A couple of years from now, maybe.

In other words, there won't be nearly enough of a difference (barring injury) for his age to be a worthy discussion in how the Falcons season will play out. Is he going to go from 1400 yards last year (in 14 games) to 900 yards this year? I just don't think it's relevant to talk about his age until his play diminishes.

Re: ESPN Is Dumb

I'm sick of ESPN and their political agendas. Who the **** wants to watch some gawdy black girl with nine inch nails try to act knowledgeable about football? Not me. The anal cysts(analysts) on ESPN don't have any type of spark of life.

Who the **** wants to watch a panel of two women (one is always black) and two boring men who may not have ever played football ether but act like they know everything?

I eventually get to watch about three informative minutes after fast forwarding through all the fluff material waiting on real football talk. I don't want to hear about Kaepernick........I hate that I even know how to spell his name. Aaarrrrggghhhh.............
