    Pretty good article ( at bottom ) on a damn nice guy who was misunderstood by the masses in an era that was less than ideal for black players ..

    My Take from personal experiences

    A large part of why Richie " Dick " Allen was misunderstood lies deeper than anyone cares to investigate .

    How do I know you may ask , well its simple we come from the same hometown , in fact the House he had built for his late departed mother is literally 45 seconds from my house by car .

    Richie is quite a few years older than me and went to High School with my Uncle they where in the same graduating class ( a class of 20 something kids ) .

    I have had the pleasure of speaking with him on many occasions through out the years as he still comes home ( to his mothers old home ) every year for 3-4 months and we run into one another at… [Read More]

    First let me say put the small school label away to all the nay sayer's out there
    that discredit potential of small school guys because in this case it just does not apply !



    If this man played at Tennessee and put up the film even close to
    what he has done you would be all over him singing his praises .... here is a hint
    He had an offer to play at Tennessee but the SEC’s 3-semester rule kind of messed that up for him.



    As many of you know by now I take my time with prospects , I study the
    film closely many times over , I get to know the prospect not only as a
    player but as a person and if the man does not measure up to the athlete
    I let it pass by and do nothing ...



    I offer interviews to only those who are up to the challenge
    of being a good citizen as well as good football player , I shy away from malcontents ,
    trouble makers and guys with a history of bad behavior...



    Here is five… [Read More]

    Nice. With Golson hurt, you had to figure he was gonna fall so far behind that he was gonna be a non-factor for most of the season. We had to do something. We didn't take on an old-ass vet with no legs left. We got a guy with experience. He's better than…

    I believe he was the 21st rated corner on PFF for 2014 season ... to get him on a 1 year rental with the possibility of extending for a conditional 5th is a " steel" ( typo intended )

    Meh, not a big deal. If they're not playing come the third preseason game, then I'll panic, sorta. I mean, are we really counting on these guys all that much anyway? I'm not sure Jones is gonna beat out Harrison. I'm pretty sure Shark's not gonna beat…

    Stupid on the players parts. Whether it's marijuana or academics doesn't matter. Neither should be a problem. Academically they get all the tutoring they want and if it's marijuana just stay away from it or at a minimum keep it to confined personal…

    Hopefully just normal nicks & dings. I'm sure there used to be this kind of stuff all the time that was never even heard about before the advent of the internet and twitter. So much more information that everyone knows about now that no one used to…
