1st year maybe unimpressive. Not his second with 15 sacks (2 off of league lead) and 3 FF.
That's what Payne said, but maybe he overstated Smith's slow start in the league if he really did struggle only during his rookie year.
But thanks for that insight, that gem of wisdom explaining that defensive lineman on opposing teams don't appear on the los against each other at the same time.

Hardly, unless you totally forgot those endless replays of Bush's long TD run vs Fresno State (or was it San Jose State?). I think they even had a song that accompaned the play on ESPN, which is owned by LA-based and USC fan Disney Inc. People back then valued a great pass-rusher just as they do now, but can't even remember why Bush was so highly valued in those days ?

Maybe because Bush had highlight plays his last college year.

Yea, but every 15 minutes, again, again, again, and again to total ad nauseam !
But it was effective as it got Bush the Heisman. Fortunately Casserly saw thru it
all and steered the Texans & their 1.1 elsewhere.

could say same for Manziel. his overwhelming run to Heisman even though he didn't lead Texas A&M to a Rose Bowl or BCS game. ESPN is in love with him, a lot of Texan fans are in love with him, he's already signed a big sponsorship deal Johnny legend grows & media manufactures next darling

It's no secret you've got no love for the GM but you can't deny that he penned it in such a way that there's not that much sting to let him walk.

I'm SURE you disagree but that's my take on it, as well as a few others. (Not that I need validation for my point of view)

The freshman that Rex Ryan was talking about two years ago was Jadeveon Clowney, obviously.

Q: People are saying Jadeveon Clowney is more a traditional 4-3 DE and not a good fit in Houston... do you see him as a fit or is the scheme an issue for the Texans?

Tony Pauline: "I'm hearing the exact opposite, and this is something I reported from the Combine. The Texans are looking at Clowney as a potential good fit at the 2-gap end spot down the road in Romeo Crennel's more traditional 3-4. The feeling is is Clowney's size, growth potential, and strength as well -- because he is a strong guy and has the ability to clog gaps and occupy blockers -- would make him a very good fit in Crennel's 3-4/2 gap system. His athleticism, the ability to take on blockers... I'm hearing that Clowney is a solid fit."

That's the kind of thing that makes me think Pauline is an id!ot more than he has contacts. Clowney is so far away from what Crennel has used in the past AND that eliminates his biggest strength of quick initial step it just makes zero sense.

295 lbs is light for Crennel. IOW Clowney is 30 lbs lighter than a light 3-4 DE for Crennel. He's 40-50 lbs under most of Crennel's 3-4 DEs.

I'm confused here.

Are you suggesting that Manziel didn't deserve the Heisman? He didn't lead Texas A&M to a BCS game? What would you call that win he had against Oklahoma last season? And it's not like his team was losing games this year because of Manziel's awful play where he let down a great defense. He carried his team all season this year and put up a ton of points pretty much duplicating his stats of last year. He earned every bit of the hype and praise he got. It's just that his skill set combined with his lack of size may not translate well to the NFL.

let me simplify it for you then, It's all about Johnny, or what can you do for Johnny thanks but no thanks. No love loss here for A&M but that factors in very little anyway, other than they are annoying species to say the least, but fact is he has never won jack ****! Far as he relates to O'Brain & team first, not. In regards to Heisman, no way in HELL he deserved it! Manti Te'o should have won it at least he led his team to the National Championship, but alas just another dumb jock who was exposed & publicly humiliated, but without his play in key situations ND would/should of never been in that game. Far as his his size, I don't give a **** either, just check out Russell Wilson

PS: just went out for drinks, as usual, had a killer Belgian Quad, a style I recently brewed & won my own Heisman, now out for another, same skill sets, but more complex & aged, lol
