Wait, the Aussie is a FG kicker in the NFL? If this is true, I'm darksiding after the first loss.

Edit: I just saw him make a FG. It wasn't pretty but yea, not a good look if our punter can even try out FGs in the NFL and never got a crack during our kicking woes.

Like TexZilla said, he's likely just camp fodder.  But the ugly field goal Irwin-Hill kicked didn't look anywhere near as ugly as the one Henson missed by about 30 yards in the Aggy game, or the extra point he bricked against Alabama. 

To be clear in case any of you are related to Henson, I'm not meaning to disparage him here.  He was doing the best he could.  My beef is with the guy who anointed him as starting kicker when there were apparently at least two other better options on the sideline.

We had a kicker named Henson? Fuck, I must be getting old because I sure don't remember that.

"I think Ryan has played well," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "He had really a not a good day [last week], and I saw a lot of stories about that. I see he's having some pretty good days, and I haven't really seen anything written about that. What's up with that?

Been waiting to hear or read about practices since his bad one. Hope that one exceptionally bad practice was a fluke.

That can't be right; he had a bad practice the other day which means he sucks, he's always sucked, and will forever suck.  At least according to ESPN which has some weird creepy pedarist agenda to get Colin Kaepernick a job.

Re: Mallett

Just working in some PR to build back up the concept that the Ravens are not signing a flag burning national anthem kneeling terrorist.

Also, let's say they really don't like Mallett but don't like what's on the street. Maybe wait and see what emerges from pre-season...there could be a dude on someone's roster that looks good but a team can't fit on a roster.

Except, the person most upset that the press has failed to mention that Mallett has had good to great practices every since that one bad one, is the same guy who mentioned having had conversations with Capernick.  Call me racist, or whatever, Capernick's talents to do not mesh with the Ravens's offense.  They don't have the scheme that blocks for or even minimally would allow success for Capernick's strengths.

The rest of your post I pretty much agree with though, so you got that going for you today.  LOL.

ESPN is just doing what ESPN does.  NFL owners are way more conservative than ESPN though.

This.  The Harbaugh connection was the only reason for the spin.

The first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy is awesome.  I mean he shoots Theo Tonin;  fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion;  pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flyin' it;  parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of a small country;  then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement - not once but two times;  he spends a couple days ridin' around with you - while you're lookin' for him;  and now he's run off with a hooker that's half his age.  That's some badass shit.

Kap is the Tebow replacement unicorn subplot for ESPN/sports media. He's way better than Tebow and prob should have a paying gig...but in the NFL you have to be marketable and a team player and reasonably good.

Even before all the anthem stuff dude had some antics, nothing much but there is a reason he lost his starting gig to like Blaine Gabbert or something.

Supposedly he was offered a contract from someone early in the summer and they were a few million dollars apart. I gather the deals haven't gotten any better.

I think it's possible he gets signed after the season has started and a team can give him a non-guaranteed contract so they can dump him for a little bit of nothing if he he's a PR nightmare.

I'm not sure who this guy is a fit for as a starter, maybe the Jags. Jets maybe but that would be a shit show.

At this point he's waiting for a major injury to a starter or backup and still has to compete with RG3 for a gig if not Cutler.

Yep, ESPiN has their talking points like any other cable "news" channel.

Wait.  So does that mean a QB from Arkansas still in the league in his 7th year with a pretty decent start for the team he still plays for doesn't suck?

What is Harbaugh really supposed to say in that spot besides what he said?

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

Cap and his lunatic girlfriend keep shooting themselves in the foot.  If she hadn't called the Ravens owner a slavemaster maybe he'd get a call.  Had cap not worn a Fidel t shirt and sung the praises of the socialist paradise in Miami last year probably kinda fucked himself when tannehill went down.  Fucktard.

Fuck that clown.  And fuck his daddy Herm Edwards too.  ESPN has turned into the Lavar Ball suck-off and Kap Employment Watch channel.....and wonder why their ratings are so shitty.

Ratings are dropping for every major sport on television -- and have been for a while -- but yeah, let's talk about how Kaepernick is ruining ratings.

LT had maybe the best speech by a Texan since Sam Houston in Canton last night.  Jerry had a great speech about family and some nice bits for Jimmy and as good a apologia for football as I've heard.  Warner gave a speech that basically will be then endboard of his movie they're making.

I think he's talking about ratings for the bullshit filler programming, like what they are trying to pass off as Sportscenter these days and all the screaming reporter shows.

The dumb shits are marketing to a group that doesn't even watch TV and doesn't have much money, and drove off its former audience that has money with said marketing.  Couldn't happen to a better group of morons.

That's a really good point and one that I had not thought of.
