He seems to think that his being in the situation resulted from his being in the situation. Actually, it is somewhat zenlike. Maybe he is presenting us with a koan that challenges us to think beyond his situation...

Or, maybe he is just a meathead.
That's some deep stuff yo. I wouldn't have replied to this post if I hadn't of replied to this post. That's some far out mystic s**t man. Wow. I'm down with it.

So you're saying give him a few and "Unleash the Beast?" I imagine he'd play like Incognito of the Rams. I still can't get over what a moron that guy is.

If you hang around the wrong people or find the wrong part of town in any city you will get into trouble.

P.S. As far as the strip clubs, I think they are better in Charlotte. You can have lap dances (If there is a club in DC with lap dances let me know!). And definitely no pasties like the Commonwealth...
I've also lived in both, albeit not here in Charlotte for very long.

The strip clubs in DC suck, as do they in VA; but B'more is very near by. The last thing that we need is a Pacman, and I agree with matty that if he can behave he's got a very good shot at being the starting RT.

He's just saying had he not been where he was, or put himself into the possibility of those situations, then nothing would've happened.. and that's how it should've been.

does have a lil bushism ring to it though, no?

LOL, good point. I was thinking belligerent alcoholism didn't necessarily HAVE TO be a vice in this guy's case ()...but you have reminded me why that probably isn't possible.

Incognito. What a tool. Imagine THAT combined w/drunken courage. <shudder>

I'm never really actually for whacking somebody up side the head with a 2X4, but....well, you get my drift.

Oh, I understood exactly what he meant. I don't know if that's b/c of the depth or shallowness of his statement.

But, he is here... mission accomplished.

Re: RI: Jeremy Bridges agrees to terms

Jeremy Bridges can play in the NFL. That has never been mysterious to coaches in the league.

Jeremy Bridges has "self-control problems"; that is what has gotten him on the wrong side of coaches in the league.

IF the Skins can find a way to mentor him and counsel him and keep him under control - - on the field as well as off the field and during the season as well as during the off-season - - then this signing may be as important in improving the Skins' team as anything else they have done in this off-season.

IF on the other hand, Bridges "loses it", then the skins will release him and it will not have cost them all that much. Low risk/High reward. The FO should get a pat on the back for this move.

Holy crap I think the space time continuum just cracked.

His nickname should be Yogi.

"90% of the game is half-mental." "It ain't over 'til it's over."

He could have quoted the Macho Man Randy Savage the week before Hollywood Hogan took back what belonged to him, "IT IS WHAT IT IS!"

FRPLG:

The space-time continuum did not crack - - it didn't even experience an increase in its warp.


Signing Jeremy Bridges was a Low risk/High reward move. Those are good things. The Skins' FO doesn't do nearly enough of those kinds of things.


So, when they do, it is a good idea to praise them for such moves in the hopes that they might do more of them at some future time.


As Mr. Spock would say, "It's just logical, Captain."
