  1. That's what he does. he makes that IT that has people (sometimes) forgetting his was pony the rest of the game.
  2. That made me laugh. Largely because I didn't say he was better I said he outperformed Wentz last year after you said that Wentz was clearly better. I'm pretty sure the disagreement kicked off because of that. But ya know, it wasn't me thought that Goff was more pro-ready even though Wentz played in a pro-style offense and Goff had never played under center. Goff looked terrible against San Fran and I'm concerned, but that doesn't take away that he did out perform Wentz last season. As for Peters. he'll make some big plays, but he cannot play press with any #2 never mind a 1, so (like us) you will be playing zone. He looked utterly dreadful last year when Talib was out and he was on the #1 WR. Even in zone he gives up some horrible plays because he lacks discipline and is always looking to step in front of his man for the IT. He's a look at me kinda guy. And it probably doesn't really matter, but he's an utter plank. Wait till you hear his pressers, it's painful. It was curious for the Chiefs to let him go and I thought we'd nicked him from what I'd read. Hadn't seen that much of him. But it was obvious why after a few games and my guess is that Phillips was thinking he could get him back to performing the way he was in his first two years. Now the Rams bailed on him too. Corners are like tackles in terms of good ones are really hard to come by and teams don't let top 10 CB's walk unless they really have to. There were apparently 6 teams after Ramsey with Philly offering a 1, 2 and 4. There was no queue for Peters and the Ravens got him for a 5 and a back up. As for PFF, I don't have a strong opinion tbf, but of the people's whose opinion I respect on the game, none of them take it seriously because their rankings cannot take into account so many intangibles. But I rarely take close notice of players who aren't either playing the Rams or for the Rams. I think one of two things will happen when we play the Ravens. Peters will pick Goff off twice returning one for a TD, or he'll get burned a couple of times and do a lot of pouting.
  3. Top 10 corner? You've clearly not been watching him. He'd have been benched by now if we'd anybody to bench him for.
  4. Peters was terrible last season when Talib was out. He's flashy but gets burned a LOT. Plus he's out of contract the end of this season so I'm not surprised they let him walk. And quite happy. Having said that, I think we're done for this season, especially if we send Johnson on IR. We've been super lucky avoiding injuries the last two years. I'm also worried about Goff. The one thing I have liked about him is he never looks rattled. Until Sunday that is. A couple of times you could tell he was hearing footsteps that weren't there. Reminded me of Jim Everett and the phantom sack. http://www.nfl.com/videos/san-francisco-49ers/0ap3000000904655/Jim-Everett-sacked-vs-49ers-in-NFC-Championship
  5. The whole they should be professional and working full time makes perfect sense to me. However, when the question gets asked every so often over here, the answer is that many of them are in super high paying jobs such as attorneys, business owners, accountants etc. As such you're not going to tempt them away for a few hundred grand. I say, fine, start recruiting ex-players (NFL minimum wage type guys), pay them well and start grooming them. Some of the refs need to have played at this level. The officiating last night was a joke. Not that it impacted the game because the Rams were already imploding, but Brian Allen made a block on (I think) Bosa on Sunday where he grabbed him at the front with both hands and snapped down hard. They hit him for holding. The commentator said something like 'that was textbook, that is exactly how you are taught to do that move' An ex-player would know that yeh he held him for a moment but that's not what the holding penalty is there for. btw @SaintRam if I'd have offered to flip seasons after you lost to us, would you have taken it?
  6. I think they have to have had an embarrassment bypass operation for when they start, but the really good ones study the crap out of if.
  7. Quarterback controversy!!!! Maybe not, but it seems like Teddy may be playing himself into a starters spot next year and your fears were misplaced You'll either need to pay him silly money for a back up (isn't he already the highest paid back up?), promote him if Brees retires and pony up north of $25m or wave adieu. A nice problem to have I guess
  8. Something that just crossed my mind and a lot of younger Derby fans I'm guessing may not even know and I tend to forget about. We were banned from Europe after the first time we won the league because of accounting irregularities. Can you imagine that in this day and age? Totally unthinkable. It would be dragged through the courts for years even if UEFA had had the gall to do attempt it. So twice we qualified and then were denied European football. FML.
  9. Maybe the greatest miss of all time until that Luton player sliced over the bar from 17 inches yesterday. Roger has a wicked sense of humor and always happy to laugh at himself. Love that guy.
  10. I think it's one of those spectacularly rare events where people were saying at the time the ref must have been bribed. And the ref actually had been bribed.
  11. That was bizarre. I can still see five of us old goats sat in a pub somewhere in North London at 1 pm all saying, 'well at least he can't leave Marriott out of this one' and chuckling about it.
  12. I'm actually not bitter about that. As has been well documented and Cloughie himself admitted several times, he put the Board in an impossible situation where they had no alternative. I'm more bitter about the two of them maturing after they left Derby. Somewhere in a parallel universe Derby County really are the greatest team the world has ever seen.
  13. 1. Charlie George getting injured against Stoke and missing the end of what could well have been a double winning season? 2. Juventus bribing the referee in the European Cup Semi-Final and getting away with it? 3. The last minute winner for QPR at Wembley? 4. Paulo Wanchope not getting goal of the month after his brilliance against Man Utd? 5. None of the above - so come on, what is it then? Let's get bitter and twisted. I'm going for #1. That was truly the start of the decline imho.
  14. Nah but I had a sneaking suspicion big boy.
  15. The last question is easy. It would be Jozefzoon. I'd like to meet with him here in Orlando at 3 pm on Saturday 19th October. Enough of the Florian bashing for one day? No? Okay then. I'm trained in all sorts of stuff around persuasion, hypnotherapy mentalism blah, blah, blah. There's very few people who do this stuff that when I watch them I cannot tell you what they're doing. Richard Bandler and Derren Brown are two exceptions and at the top of the tree. Or, rather they were. Move aside Bandler and Brown because neither of you two could spot how on earth FJ is slipping into a Derby shirt every week and getting onto the pitch without somebody noticing. Ta-da!
  16. White shirt? Back to the game? Annoying as hell? Was it Jozefzoon?
  17. He saw Keogh had an ACL and thought it mean anterior cranial lobotomy so was rightly worried about his fate. Ironically, I think a minority of Derby fans have self-administered anterior cranial lobotomy's with the way they're reacting.
  18. It reminds me of my old man when he first got a calculator. He could never quite wrap his head around the fact that he didn't need to turn it off and on again to cancel the memory - no matter how many times I told him. Alan is either a very curious person or some ducker swapped the question mark and full stop around on his first phone as a joke not realizing the devastating long-term consequences to his Twitter followers over the following years.
  19. Why did it take Bobby Robson a Butch Wilkins sending off and a Bryan Robson shoulder dislocation to play Beardsley and Lineker together in the 86 World Cup? And similarly, an injury in the warm up games (I forget who to now) for Gazza to even make the '90 World Cup squad? I'm showing my age I know, but most managers need an element of luck. Let's just be glad he made the change.
  20. I agree. That post already has who shot Kennedy status in my eyes.
  21. Can't argue with Shinnie as MotM. I'd give Lawrence runner up. And I'd give Jozefzoon an one-way air ticket to any foreign destination of his choice.
  22. At the moment I really don't care how we win, as long as we win. Momentum is the key and grinding out results. Look at Germany almost every World Cup they start off playing poo. I'm not comparing us to Germany. Spain maybe, but obviously not Germany. Not yet anyway.
  23. Glad you're enjoying yourself sunshine. That's the spirit.
  24. Lawrence's control before he hit it was excellent. It probably was a cross but it was hit with such ferocity that I'm not 100% sure.
