    I mean who determines if a player is a bust ?




    what qualifies one as such ?




    I get the premise that it is a player who fails to achieve the desired outcome on the field of play at the next level ...




    ( here comes that BIG little word ) ok cool I understand and agree to a degree , BUT




    we are then using a set outcome of greatness as the standard for a player that has only been projected to meet any such standard ...




    projections are perhaps the most unreliable thing in sports .




    there literally is not a tool in the world that can accurately project greatness




    we look at tendencies , athletic prowess , size , speed and accomplishments at a lower level of competition as the factors into an equation that fails identify future growth on much more of anything than someone gut feeling




    then when that gut feeling of said evaluators is wrong instead of blaming the evaluators we instead label the player ( who clearly spent his entire life trying to be great ) to even be in the position to be

    My logic is this every year we have 3-4-5 QBs that everyone drools all over themselves about prior to the draft


    of those 3 to 5 QBs how many of them 3-4-5 years down the road have panned out ?


    20% or less end up being the guy everyone seemed to think they would be


    you want to double down on the currency spent ( 1st round picks ) for a shot at getting a guy who has a 20-30% chance or less of being what you thought he would be ? go for it I will laugh at your efforts more often than you will give me reason to applaud them ...


    2015 QBs went 1 and 2 overall neither have set the world on fire in the wins department


    2014 Three QBs drafted in the first round and Bortles in the only 1 with his original team


    2013 EJ Manual was only QB drafted in 1st round where is he at ?


    2012 Luck ,RG3 , Ryan Tannehill and Branden Weeden ... how many playoff wins do they have combined ?


    2011 Cam Newton , Jake Locker ,Blaine Gabbert ,

    This was a post on another forum that I frequent and felt it was an outstanding view of how many fans feel about kneeling / sitting during our National Anthem and before our Flag that represents the men and women who have fought bled and often times died to protect our rights to protest among others ...



    Why is it that the players can protest anything they want about anything they want, but someone posting his displeasure about players protesting on a Steelers message board is being attacked for taking a stand?



    The ultimate protest is for the people that pay for the whole fucking NFL experience to walk away from the game and voice their anger about the direction the game has been taking from a political standpoint.



    To those of you who believe the players have the right to protest, how many among us that aren't self-employed are allowed to conduct a political protest of any kind when working for someone else? These guys have microphones shoved in their faces constantly. They can

    by Military Law AV was and is required to stand at attention for the Anthem and Flag if the team can not support him then they will just have to get over themselves ....... James Harrison and Mike Tomlin included


    As a Three tour of duty US Army Ranger ( and reservist ) the big left Tackle had more on his mind than what a group of men who never defended anything other than a blade of grass had to say and I applaud him for it even if only done through obligation ( conjecture )


    Troops learn during basic training and officer training — their first introduction to the military — about saluting when the anthem is played and the flag is raised. The ritual is referred to as the "call to colors." Military rules obligate servicemen and women to salute when they hear the anthem if they are in uniform. Those who happen to be in an area where the flag is being raised must salute the flag. If they don't see the flag around them, they're expected to stop and salute in the

    Jamel Major CB
    Oklahoma Panhandle Football
    5'9" 175



    Welcome everyone sit back and relax and lets learn a few things about this young corner Jamel Major from Oklahoma Panhandle State



    First things first size is always a factor at the next level and Jamel has a slight disadvantage in that department coming in at 5'9 -175 however
    he will not be an outside Corner at the next level he will be a slot cover man who excels in the short to intermediate area with quickness and ball skills
    and he has both of those covered in spades .



    When you plug in the tape one of the first things I took note of is how fluid his movement is ,
    turns on a dime without losing much if any speed and his head is always on a swivel taking note of his surroundings.
    Jamel always knows where the ball is !
    You just can't teach those things




    So Lets get down to business and see what else we can uncover about this prospect that we may have not already known .



    Thank you Jamel for taking the time out of your busy
