    Yeah, mostly.

    He was jubilant after Bradford was traded and went as far as to get a full-on man-crush with Foles. Started posting pictures of him in action saying "THIS is what a REAL QB looks like!". So I posted pictures in his thread too -- of Foles getting sacked and picked (you know, to give him a taste of his own medicine). Lol. He lost his crap. Cried about me hating the team, and then he reported me. lmao. It was shortly thereafter that he stopped posting altogether. Dude sure could dish it out. But when it came time to take it, he went into full-on bitch mode.

    I think you need to get your eyes checked there. That's clearly three defenders!

    X, you're cracking me up...You dialed up this clip lickitty-split to shut down Les Baker, which to me means you have a folder "marked" Bradford's Greatest Hits somewhere ready...just in case anyone needs a video beatdown...lol:yess:

    Goff and Kupp are both basically rookies. They can both make tiny adjustments to turn that into a highlight reel play, but that might just happen with a little more pro experience. I'm sick that we lost the game, but it didn't solely come down to this play. I am ALSO encouraged by how close this young team came to still walk away with the W. We made so many mistakes, and still looked like the better team.

    With the right personnel adjustments, I think this can be a 12 W team next season. This season, I'd think around 9 is realistic.

    Don't get me wrong. I love me some Kupp but that was his mistake. Wr's at this level are expected to be able to catch "hard" balls. They should be able to catch all balls in their vicinity. Goff threw a bullet so only Kupp could get it. I think he makes that catch next time but no way I'm putting that on Goff.

    That looks more like a hug than a blast.

    I agree both players weren't perfect and in order for that play to be successful everything had to go just right.

    I think its just one of those makeable catches but not easy either. Was some zip on it. Just sucks would of been a hell of a comeback with a minute left and no timeouts against that D.

    I agree with the 60% probability... tough play all around. They'll learn and get better.

    My question is... why didn't he throw it to Watkins? :hiding::LOL:

    I know a lot of people dislike CK but man you gotta give that guy credit for the job he did here. He played his ass off and I really came to like the guy even though his skill set limited him and the offense. I'm glad to see him doing well in MN, he deserves some success and a little time in the limelight.

    Nah, we know Kupp isn't afraid of the hits, he just couldn't get to it that's all.

    If Kupp had caught that pass I'd still be floating on clouds with visions of 1999 in my head. I know for a fact I would be wearing a Kupp jersey as I write this had he caught that pass. I might even mistakenly call my son Cooper instead of his rightful name.

    Maybe Kupp knew as a fan I just wasn't ready to physically and emotionally deal with a game-winning reception like that. Especially against the Seahags. Maybe he knew if he caught that ball I might have even had a heart attack right there on the spot. So he sorta saved my life

    The cool thing though is that this is all now a possibilty -- Kupp with a late second game-winner from Goff! I mean it almost happened. And whether it was on Kupp or Goff (Kupp needs to catch that ball) I am excited to watch a team with such huge upside.

    The two games we lost, we played badly but were still in it at the end - man doesn't that feel good to know we have a team that one day will put all the pieces together

    I think it's the beginning of great things to come
    I'm gonna be ready for it

    This is a young them with a young head coach that is learning and growing together. Losses like the two that they have had are just part of the process. I think we will see steady improvement the rest of the season, as we have already seen a team that has an ability to make in game adjustments and overcome mistakes.

    The question about that play is what a female reporter should have ask.

    Jared what do you think about that route ? Do you think Copper Kupp should have given you a little better angle on his route ? He sort of start lined it with the defender. Your throw was spot on & can't pass it inside any closer.

    It pains me to say this because I hate Brady's guts - but at times, Goff looks like and acts like Tom in the pocket.

    Look how quickly Goff is learning to manipulate the safeties to get his way? Earl Thomas went out of his way to point out how Goff was looking him off with success.

    I will be quick to admit, I was skeptical of Goff last season, although I did see some goods things from him on how he handled the pocket in that poor offense. I am more than a believer now. I do think Goff will be subject to some off days with accuracy now and then. I do think his small hands affect some of his throws. But oh my, the way he handled that last drive, with ice water flowing through his veins. And those throws .... just wow moments. Very few QB's in the world that make that throw to Higbee, and have quick enough reaction time to find Kupp like he did after rapidly looking off the safeties.

    Yeah in the pocket Goff is steady as freak, he doesn't let it get to him at all he either stands in and delivers or he hops out and looks for a place to throw.
