Quote: Be Like Mike

“That’s something where he’s got to realize, ‘Hey, you’re a huge man,’ … Give him tapes of Mike Ditka or something and say, ‘This is how we want you to play. Recognize you’re a big guy. You need to be a bully out there. When that ball’s thrown up, you’ve got to go catch it. I don’t care where it is.’ So he needs to have that kind of mentality.”

What a difference in the number of people at the stadium watching the Giants versus the lack of fans at the Jets game. And the NFL Network is going totally bonkers over Manziel---don't think they'd be that excited for the 2nd coming of Christ (although I don't know how good a QB he'd be).

Can we show these tapes to Stephen Hill as well, please?

Yeah, Pettine has him with the Browns and he had one solo tackle part time......why you ask??

Now that you have a friend in high places with the 'Phins, call up Tannenbauim and tell him to send you Egnew for Amaro!

The 'Phins will release Egnew after Sims beats him out......the Dolphins are overstocked with starting TE's anyway !!!

Apparently you did NOT see the Browns tonite...he played well, a couple of over throws but played generally well....good command !!

@Hanknaples If they're releasing him anyway why would the Jets give up a player for him?  And if the Dolphins are overstocked with TEs why would they accept Amaro in a trade?

@Hanknaples 

I watched most of the game...those overthrows are precisely his problem. When everything is perfect, Hoyer makes nice throws, otherwise he has trouble with his footwork...

@Bent 

I did not think of that..it is sound but listen.....

I'm sure Tannembaum will think he's outsmarting you and getting a steal !!

You'll also be helping the Jets a TON because I'm sure Tannenbaum will "Advise" Philbin to make Amaro their starting TE !!

Sounds like a plan, no???

@Bent 

Well,. they haven't released him yet so if you offered them "something" you might induce them to trade w/you AND avoid competing with the rest of the teams for him....I'm sure Tannebaum knows and would LOOOOVE that !!!

@Hanknaples @Bent Your logic is sound but if someone is getting rid of something they don't need, you can't really offer them the same thing.
