Crabtree is mediocre.

CR.. after watching the BTW vs USchool game I was convinced Wilson will NOT be a CB or at least not a good one at the next level.

This.

Also, in his highlights of 1 on 1's he gets beat and interferes on the first 5 or 6 of 10 or so. A couple others the WR drops the pass.

Granted 1 on 1's generally favor the WR, but still. To list that as a HL tape when he's constantly fouling is hilarious.

Dr King was certainly one of the greatest and most prolific and enduring figures in the history of man.

That being said, I prefer Malcolm X.

MLK for Golden's replacement so we can maintain the status quo in Coral Gables.

So, I've been reading follow-up stories on yesterday's games, and I'm trying to think: has anybody EVER talked more smack than Richard Sherman? I'm just talking football here. Obviously, Muhammad Ali is still The Greatest.

Old Skool

Indeed, Ali was the greatest smack talker but sometimes it sticks and bad feelings linger. Witness Joe Frazier and Ali years later.

As a Niner fan, I hate him. If he was on our team, he would be a favorite.

Boldin and Steve Smith come to mind as other trash talkers.

🍺icane

Sherman is the Man. Now Beats is airing more Sherman commercials than it had previously. Dude has a giant chip on his shoulder and clearly feels he's still disrespected. That is about to change. So we will see how he handles the spotlight. At this point I still love his immediate post-game smack talk. But the continued insulting on the podium after the dust had settled seemed to be a bit excessive. Makes me think Crab had slighted him on a personal level at some point in time. I find it hard to believe he'd keep jabbing like that for some random receiver without any prior history. So I'm inclined to believe that Crabtree just got his comeuppance on national TV.

great stuff Soup. I totally agree man.

Certainly was brilliant. I admire his courage, bravery and patience more than anything. He knew he was going to die, yet did not deviate from his mission or agenda (as in itinerary). It is beyond sad that he was forced to exchange his life for his cause, yet he accepted this and remains one the world's greatest luminaries because of it.

Dr. Michael Gervais, a High Performance Psychologist who works with the Seahawks, said Roth's prediction of the speech was pretty accurate.

"The science of optimism is real," Gervais said, explaining how Carroll, along with the guidance of GM John Schneider, has transformed a franchise that went just 5-11 in 2009 into one headed to the Super Bowl.

"Pete has an unbelievable ability to see what's possible and what's good."

The NFL announced Sunday that 98 underclassmen were granted eligibility for the 2014 draft. That's the most ever, smashing last year's record.

Year Early Entrants
2014 98
2013 73
2012 65
2011 56
2010 53

-- ESPN Stats & Information

The league released the list of early entrants Sunday and said the number has risen six straight seasons. The deadline for underclassmen to apply was Jan. 15.

Last year, 73 underclassmen entered the draft. The year before it was 65, and in 2011 it was 56.

Among the early entrants expected to be selected near the top of the draft are Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, Clowney, the defensive end from South Carolina, and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins.

The draft is May 8-10 in New York.

LSU for the second straight season had the most players of any school to leave early. The Tigers had seven early entrants this season, including wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., after 11 LSU players left early last year.

Alabama and Southern California each had five leave early, along with California. Cal, which went 1-11, has six players listed among the early entrants, but that includes defensive end Chris McCain, who was dismissed from the team in September.

National champion Florida State lost four players early, including All-American defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who caught the winning touchdown in the BCS National Championship against Auburn. Notre Dame, Florida and South Carolina also had four early entrants.

86, when are the recruiting articles dropping?

canerock...."Today, many of these people are receiving millions of dollars in federal subsidies, NOT TO FARM!, and they are the VERY! same people telling the black man, that He oughta lift Himself by His own bootstraps..." Never felt that providing money to conglomerates like Conagra and the like not to farn thousands of acres as part of 'the yearly farm bill was morally and ethically proper. This has been done "to support prices" certainly not to help consomers.
Go Canes.

As a white man, I find a lot of white people have a hard time learning from Dr. King. He was not perfect; none of us are...he had rough edges like all of us. However his message should ring true to all of us.....there is great wisdom and truth in his words. Content of character rather than color of skin.....a beautiful concept that I hope we will see in our lifetime. The man gave a lifetime of devotion to the idea that ALL of us are equal, we are ALL the same....not just black people. He died for a beautiful cause and he did not have to do so. I see him leading us in the footsteps of Christ....who is a savior to ALL of us.....how could you not love his devotion to a worthy cause and understand his compassion and love for all? A great man a great leader a great example of a life well led....for ALL of us to see. Happy MLK Day....we all should stop and reflect on the lessons he intended for ALL. JMO

Ohio...Tuesday 6 am and Thursday 6 AM.

VA Cane

RCCF and T Sully,

as a coach, I have never tolerated this type of behavior...I call it yap yap. I think it is petty, foolish and takes the focus off of the task at hand. I do not like it in any sport...hoops, football, basketball, hockey.....tiddly winks!!!! Unfortunately it is part of pro sports...and is BS.

The reason why I do not like it is that it shows kids the wrong way to act; I have seen it and these guys have a moral obligation to set a good example....you are a direct influence on kids....despite what fat ass round head jerk Barkley says.

I am certain Crabtree is not innocent by any means, and while a good player, his holdout and high opinion of himself was foolish....and for Kap to say he would take that matchup any day sounds admirable......I have to say think twice hoss.

Overall, I take Sherman any day....he IS the best. He smart, aware, tough, athletic.....man the guy plays man as good as I have ever seen....Willie Brown, Lester ?Hayes, Mike Haynes the original masters I learned from....Deion.....though he could not tackle...Sherm is a master. I love his game absolutely. He can do it all....I just do not like the talk. That's all I would change....just do it never saying a word.

I respected Jordan and Bird as players....but that talk is BS....so I never cared for them.

Sherm got a spot on my team.....just be quiet big guy. Your game is tops. By the way, other than the talk, that's how my guys play every down....that up close in your face personal man. Awesome.....Crabtree said Sherm made a good play...only one he made all day.....but then again.....how often are you throwing at the guy.....I mean its like holding a gun to your head messing with the cat....hes the best....Crab....average at best...I like Harbaugh too....but he said last week that Crab was one of the best all around...ever....really? Good you take him...you need him worse than I do!!!!!

Curtis said "there was no problem with his release at UM. Obviously UM tried to get him to stay. They went as far as calling his high school coach to ask him to get him to stay. You have to respect that.''

THIS IS THE REAL REASON BUNCH LEFT:

Curtis Bunche said Malcolm will be playing tackle at UCLA, head coach Jim Mora and the other coaches told him, rather than guard. "Every single coach that contacted us lately said, ‘Are you kidding me, this kid with his measurables (6-7, 327 pounds) and his feet – he’s a tackle.'"

Lavar Arrington's an IDIOT! Got the nerve to compare Sherman, to wait for it...Sean Taylor?! PFFFFFFT!

Ohio_Cane

As it relates to part of this article, 86, I had a customer call in this morning and say, "Oh, I thought you'd be closed today for Black Day".

The ignorance within older generations knows no bounds.

Not that younger generations lack ignorance, just that it SEEMS more prevalent in the older ones.

VA Cane

I don't know that you can compare him to ST.....ST was one of the greats....Lott, Tatum, Larry Wilson.......that's high stratosphere and ST is there baby!!!! Plus he's a corner and the job is different

Sherman is good the best right now....but Arrington was another cat who could not shut up.....a jerk.....Barkley also a jerk.....just said stupid shit all the time.....I love Frank Caliendo imitating Barkley.....it pisses him off....but that's what he sounds like.....a knucklehead.....

VA Cane

conscientious stupidity.......that's what it is Ohio......they just want to be stupid...so be it.

That's what I love about sports and coaching as I have for 35 years.....each one of my kids matter....they are all fondly called my boys. I love them for who they are, how they play, how they work together and how they have turned out. One of my favs is the Content of Character idea.....and can you believe I had someone protest me saying that once.....same thing Ohio....they said it was from that black guy!!!!! Oh the stupidity and racism out there. I just know I love all my boys and I have had every kind....and it does not matter...they all are important to me.

My sons friend from school just died in a car accident, kid was only 15. I have dealt with death a lot in my life, but Im not sure how to deal with this. How to console him. Im so scared every time my son is in a car with teenagers, and very worried about him driving in a few months.

This is gonna be a tough day...

I was at the base of the Washington Monument when Dr King gave his speech on 8/28/63, a life changing day for me...Happy MLK day...make a difference, help fulfill the dream!

UMike, very tough to deal with. 3 HS kids were killed in an accident near here this past weekend. Very sad. You're in a tough spot. Best way to help is just to be there for him any time he needs it.

VA Cane, a bit off topic, but I'd like your opinion. Have U seen the show "Friday Night Tykes"? What do U think of these coaches?

Personally, I think they're exactly what is wrong with youth sports.

I know you are a religious man so I would suggest that U rely on your faith to get U through. I will post something helpful on the stages of grief in a minute.

86Cane

http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/000617

The stages, popularly known by the acronym DABDA, include:[2]

Denial — "I feel fine."; "This can't be happening, not to me." Denial is usually only a temporary defense for the individual. This feeling is generally replaced with heightened awareness of possessions and individuals that will be left behind after death. Denial can be conscious or unconscious refusal to accept facts, information, or the reality of the situation. Denial is a defense mechanism and some people can become locked in this stage. Kübler-Ross recommends that family members and health professionals not prolong denial by distorting the truth about the person's condition. In doing so, they prevent the dying person from adjusting to impending death and hinder necessary arrangements, for social supports, for bringing closure, and for making decisions about medical interventions.[3]

Anger — "Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; '"Who is to blame?" Once in the second stage, the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue. Because of anger, the person is very difficult to care for due to misplaced feelings of rage and envy. Anger can manifest itself in different ways. People can be angry with themselves, or with others, and especially those who are close to them. It is important to remain detached and nonjudgmental when dealing with a person experiencing anger from grief.

Bargaining — "I'll do anything for a few more years."; "I will give my life savings if…" The third stage involves the hope that the individual can somehow postpone or delay death. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made with a higher power in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. Psychologically, the individual is saying, "I understand I will die, but if I could just do something to buy more time…" People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek to negotiate a compromise. For example "Can we still be friends?" when facing a break-up. Bargaining rarely provides a sustainable solution, especially if it is a matter of life or death.

Depression — "I'm so sad, why bother with anything?"; "I'm going to die soon so what's the point?"; "I miss my loved one, why go on?" During the fourth stage, the grieving person begins to understand the certainty of death. Because of this, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time crying and grieving. This process allows the dying person to disconnect from things of love and affection. It is not recommended to attempt to cheer up an individual who is in this stage. It is an important time for grieving that must be processed. Depression could be referred to as the dress rehearsal for the 'aftermath'. It is a kind of acceptance with emotional attachment. It is natural to feel sadness, regret, fear, and uncertainty when going through this stage. Feeling those emotions shows that the person has begun to accept the situation.

Acceptance — "It's going to be okay."; "I can't fight it, I may as well prepare for it." In this last stage, individuals begin to come to terms with their mortality, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event. This stage varies according to the person's situation. People dying can enter this stage a long time before the people they leave behind, who must pass through their own individual stages of dealing with the grief.

Kübler-Ross originally developed this model based on her observations of people suffering from terminal illness. She later expanded her theory to apply to any form of catastrophic personal loss, such as the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or income, major rejection, the end of a relationship or divorce, drug addiction, incarceration, the onset of a disease or chronic illness, an infertility diagnosis, as well as many tragedies and disasters (and even minor losses).

Unlike, I feel for you and know the feeling all to well. My daughter just turned 16 and I got her a car for her birthday and now when she goes out and about I get an uneasy feeling. I can't always be there for her so I hope she will make the right decisions like to be a responsible driver..no drinking and driving, texting...etc. what's scares me the most is that we are snow country and she is driving thru sometimes a foot of snow it is all too easy to lose control in snow and ice, even for me being an experienced driver.
