Been in and out of the country for the last month emceeing a few charity events so you haven’t heard much from me. Both benefit Cystic Fibrosis. Boomer Esiasons raised money for kids in Costa Rica which was wonderful considering how much they need the support. Was in Costa Rica at Boomer Esiason offshore event in Golfito, Costa Rica, and on Abaco in the Bahamas for the Bakers Bay Celebrity Bonefish Classic. I know, I know…. poor Coop, right. Well, it was tough doing business on a satellite phone and as most of you know, I work to go fish. )
P.S. find a charity and do something that’s helps someone less fortunate.
DAY ONE: Love the picks, yep, what do you think?
Thomas: I got to see a lot of him over the years playing against the U. Love the size, speed, blocking ability and a pure number 1. Good to go and he’ll replace the Marshall just fine, with a little time.
Tebow: Love the attitude, size, arm, and I think he’ll become a great QB in this league, reminds me of a Testaverde, (except) Tebow will have great coaching from the get go, Vinny did not. We’ve talked about that before he regarding Quinn.
Marshall: No one said this in the press so you get to hear it here first and THINK ABOUT IT…Miami?, really. I grew up there and was in high school during the 70′s and at the U in the 80′s during the height of the drug cartel. I could write a book about the storys, but watch a documentary. My father was a policeman as were all his friends, so I heard it all. South Beach starts at 2AM and goes to sun-up. Think he can resist that limelight. Nah. There’s a latin “Machismo” he’s never experienced in Miami that most folks don’t know or understand. Ever watch CSI Miami? It’s not all TV, promise. Those boys carry.
Miami’s a tough place period. The U lost a player a few years back to that element whether they want to admit it or not. I hope he reads this or someone schools him up because I would never wish the worst for anyone. I hope he does well, he has all the talent in the world, but often that doesn’t matter….seen it too often.
Scheffler: Go get em. “Wait a minute”, how do you catch passes from a QB that’s on his back or on the run all the time. This one reminds me of the Cutler trade. Hey Tony, Jay threw 27-29 INT’s can’t remember the number because he was being run all over the field and you can’t throw completions when you’re laying on your back.
Day two’s up: What’s your take. Love your opinions.
