    Disgruntled Nick Foles skips OTAs (ORIG POST: 6/1/2016)

    Lol no it's not true. That is your opinion and frankly it's not based in reality. When have the Philly fans ever adored that type of personality??? we currently have a head coach with an "aw shucks" personality, and the fans make fun of him because of it. Wait, you're telling me that some fans didn't like a guy who had tortured and killed a bunch of dogs??? And please all it took was a couple of touchdown passes early in the 2010 season for fans to get on the Vick train.

    Disgruntled Nick Foles skips OTAs (ORIG POST: 6/1/2016)

    Who's denying anything? Yes, 2013 for Foles clearly ended up being lightning in a bottle. Just like 2010 was lightning in the bottle for Vick. My point was in regard to your "reasoning" as to why Foles became a fan favorite. Any 24 year old QB having the season he had would have instantly become a fan favorite. Your "reasoning" that Foles because he was a "lilly white choir boy" is absurd on so many levels I don't even know where to start.

    Disgruntled Nick Foles skips OTAs (ORIG POST: 6/1/2016)

    Hmmm that's interesting. I thought fans liked Foles after the 2013 season because he was a 24 year old QB who lead this team to an 8-2 record in 10 games while throwing for 27 tds and 2 interceptions and putting up the 3rd highest QB rating in the history of the NFL. But now I see, it was because he was a "lilly-white choir boy". And clearly, history shows that Eagles' fans are drawn to that type of personality. I mean, just look at guys like Dawkins, Trotter, Westbrook, Runyan, Reggie White, Wes Hopkins, Jerome Brown, Andrew Waters, Jason Peters....that's a bunch of lilly white choir boys if I ever saw one............

    I think here are two of Foles' biggest problems: 1) He hasn't corrected his inconsistent mechanics. Everything starts with the feet for a QB, and you can only get away with inconsistent footwork for so long before it catches up to you. 2) His game relies too much on the big play. You can't always rely on getting a 20-yard, 30-yard, or 40+ yard passing play on a drive. You have to be able to move the football down the field methodically with the short and intermediate game as well, and he has struggled to do this the past two years.

    Bad move on his part. He's in no position to be skipping any sort of workouts.

    I'd like those ten minutes of my life back. I love how the guy talks about how had Carr thrown the ball inside, it would have been broken up, but since he threw it to the corner is was a TD.....as he's showing the play unfold and the ball was thrown inside forcing Holmes to have to wait for the ball to get to him.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Thank you for the clarification regarding the cut down to 10. I was wrong there. Monk was top 10 in receiving yards 3 times in his career, and was top 10 in tds only once. He was a stat accumulator, not a dominant force. I guarantee it will not take 10+ years for Owens to make the hall of fame. Wont take close to that long. Maybe it might take more than 2 more years, but certainly not more than 5.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Again, name me one player who was a hall of fame finalist in his first year of eligibility and then had to wait 10+ years to get in. Monk waited 8, and his career isn't on par with Owens. There is no "cut down to 10". They get it down to 15 finalists and then they vote on who gets in from that group. And Owens was one of the 15 finalists. He will be in the HOF by 2018 at the latest.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    You realize Owens played wide receiver, and not offensive lineman, right? So if you're saying he never had speed to begin with, then that means by the time he got to his mid 30s, he'd be even slower than he was in his early 20s, and just not able to play anymore because of how slow he was. Yet even in his mid to late 30s, we see him catching deep bombs for touchdowns and taking slant routes to the house. So your theory doesn't match up with what happened in reality. And lol at it taking 10+ years for TO to make the HOF. He was a finalist in his first year. Guys who were finalists in their first year don't wait 10+ years to get in. For example, Marvin Harrison was a finalist in 2014, and got in 2016. Orlando Pace was a finalist in 2015, and got in 2016. Go ahead and find one player who was a finalist in their first year of eligibility who then had to wait 10+ years to get in.

    TO will be in the hall of fame within two years, if not next year. The only reason he wasn't a first ballot hall of famer is because of his attitude issues.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    LOLoL yeah Owens drop in numbers when he turned 36 has nothin to do with age....sure..... On one hand you say he has no talent, and not the other hand you expect him to continue to put up 1200+ yards seasons as he nears 40....something only extremely talented players can do.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    While 34 years old and playing for Dallas, TO had his 3rd most yards and 2nd most touchdowns in a season in his career. Yeah his numbers really declined all right........ Wait wait wait, you're telling me that at the age of 36 years old, his numbers plummeted in Buffalo? Clearly this means that once the only system he can have success in is the WCO and that he needs his coaches to scheme him open, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he was 36 years old, right? Randy Moss' numbers plummeted when he went to San Fran. 430 yards and 2 tds. Half of TOs production in Buffalo. This means he was a product of the system he played in then, right? Have you seen Isaac Bruces' numbers when he went to San Fran at age 36? Identical to TO's in Buffalo. He must have no talent too!!! And it's weird, Marvin Harrison didn't even switch teams, yet at age 36 in Indy, his numbers took a dive as well. That no talent fool! And Chris Carter, what happened to ye? At age 36 in Minnesota (again not even switching teams) his numbers dropped down to 871 yards and 6 tds. How could this be??? Hmmmmmm I wonder I wonder, do we think age played a role in TO not being able to put up a 1200 yard 13 TD season in Buffalo at the age of 36?

    TO, that no talent hack....

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Clearly that video has been edited and photoshopped. I mean, if a 23 year old TO could only muster a 4.7 40, then a 35 year old TO is running a 4.8 40 at best. So how could such a receiver leave his feet to catch a ball over the middle, run through a player grabbing at his shirt, and then run 40 yards to the endzone, all the while outrunning a 24 year old Leon Hall who ran a 4.41 40 at the combine? Impossible I say!

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    That's some wonderful revisionist history...... That's not at all the actual context of TO's comment. TO made the comment in talking about why he should have a new contract and get paid more, and as part of the reasoning for why he should get paid more, he said, "I'm not the one who got tired in the superbowl." It was 100% a shot at Mcnabb.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Billy You don't hear people talking about how "talented" offensive linemen are because typically people only talk about talent when it comes to skill positions. Many offensive linemen are very athletic. I don't think you realize the athleticism involved with being 300+ pounds and being able to explode off the ball and to have all the footwork and coordination they have.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Ummm, they'd line up someone to cover you because you are an eligible receiver. Why would a defense leave someone uncovered on purpose, and thereby giving up an automatic 5+ yards?

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Ay yi yi....teams don't jam the slot on every play because most likely, the person playing the slot is an NFL receiver. In which case you take a risk in trying to jam that player because of they get off the jam, a big play could result. If YOU were playing the slot they'd jam you at the line every time because you are not an NFL receiver, and you would never get open with an NFL CB jamming you at the line.

    Of course it takes time to build up that kind of muscle. When did I ever suggest that it didn't?

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    How do I know what Pinkston's frame and bone structure looked like? Easily, from looking at him. He had tiny ankles and wrists. Thin hips, thin shoulders. Different people have different body types and different physical peaks. I have a relative who plays rugby. He's in peak physical condition. About 5'10 185 pounds, barely an ounce of fat on him. 185 is about as big as he can go without adding some fat to him. I have a friend who played D2 football at a high level, was even invited to a regional combine for the NFL. He's 5'10 and about 235. And he doesn't have much fat on him either. Even though the rugby player works out like crazy, he would never ever be able to look like and attain the same strength as the 235 football player, not without the help of steroids or HGH. And why is that? Because they have different body types, different genetics, different physical peaks. Had Owens had a cheesesteak and had a drink every once in a while, it would have made no difference in his physical results. Seriously, it's not like if he had a drink once in a while and ate on a team flight that he would somehow not be the physical freak that he was. I was an amateur boxer. Trust me, I know about sacrifice when it comes to diet and drinking.
  22. phillyterp85

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Todd Pinkston would have NEVER been able to get as big as Owens. His body type was not the same. Could he have gotten bigger and stronger than he was? Yes. As big and powerful as Owens? No. Not even close. Their frames and bone structures weren't in the same ball park. And yes while Owens was extremely dedicated, eating on a team flight and going out for a drink every once in a while wouldn't have made one bit a difference in the grand scheme of things with the results of his strength and power training. He still would have been the same physical specimen.
  23. phillyterp85

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Billy You realize that everyone has their own natural physical peaks right? Like 2 people can go through the same exact training regime and have the same exact diet, yet come out looking different, because they have different natural physical peaks. So unless TO is on steroids or HGH, he has a natural body composition that allowed him the opportunity to get as big as he is. And it's a natural physical peak that is greater than those around him. Unless you think that in a sport filled with gym rats, that somehow he's the only one working out hard.......
  24. phillyterp85

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    "s I said numerous times already, he is naturally a skinny, weak guy." You don't get to be Owens' build and have his power without having a certain natural disposition. The only way a "naturally skinny, weak" person would turn into the physical specimen that Owens is, is with steroids or HGH.
  25. phillyterp85

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    no obviously you wouldn't compare a guy with 130+ targets to a guy with 3 targets.... And explain Owens? Easily. A receiver with elite size, elite strength, elite power. Good speed. Good hands. And elite playmaking ability with the ball in his hands because he was an elite runner when he got the ball.
