I still plan on putting together some more substantial videos, but here is a quick montage of macro video I took on my last SCUBA diving trip in January to the Philippines.

They could give him time because they had a HOF QB playing for them. If it was so simple, why doesn't everyone do that? You need at least above-average QB play to be able to pull off the GB or KC transitions, and in the case of KC, they only waited a year. Justin has had enough time (definitely gro...

He had 4 years, not 3. And was allowed time to mature and be ready to play. Had he been thrown into the wild as a rookie, my guess is things would be quite different with him.

When you see the photos and videos of the renovated Hallas Hall you have to wonder how players can't give the facilities top grades.

I don't really see the problem there - Waldron's task is to mold whoever the next QB is. Of course he'll have input, but the Bears have been evaluating Fields for some time - you think Waldron's going to walk in here and suddenly they'll change their position on Fields? Also, I'm pretty sure the thi...

Same. Especially if Atlanta makes the expected move for Fields over the next day or two. My guess is that Fields is traded by Friday and the Bears trade 1 to Washington by the end of next week. I still think Williams will be the pick. But if Poles can pull a haul trading down 1 spot, he has to cons...

Not trynig to be difficult here, but there's a massive logical flaw going on. The one thing, above all else, that makes a QB considered historically elite is winning super bowls.
