Default Re: When did this Fanbase become Gary Kubiak?

I would've still preferred teddy b, but manziel in kubiaks offense actually makes sense.

& the guy he compares to the least (Cam Newton) is much bigger & stronger than Manziel will ever be....Oh, he was also able to lead his team to the NC game with his athleticism..... despite a crap defense...unlike Manziel.

Please just stop....Manziel's a good athlete but stop overplaying your hand.
I've never thought of baseball players as athletes. I think of them more as skilled competitors like in golf. So being drafted by baseball doesn't support the concept of athleticism. It doesn't mean they aren't athletes, just that being drafted by baseball teams doesn't supports that position.

Running Olympic class hurdles does support the notion of athleticism though.

Yeah, Manziel would be pretty good in Kubiak's offense; it's why I'd like to see him end up in Minnesota or Cleveland, preferably Minnesota.

I've always thought of baseball players as athletes as sure as the sun shines. Just a different skill set is all. If a guy is drafted by MLB and the NFL I've always said, partly in jest, that he had the braun for football and the brains for baseball. A good combination that could help him in either sport.

A nice friendly disagreement. What a concept.

While they're cool and funny, I don't get the doctor who memes. Heck, I'm amazed us/tx people even know doctor who.

I've been watching Dr Who since I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. Now my kids are even bigger fans, especially my daughter.

Just think how long this thread would be if we were discussing who the "Best Doctor" was? I vote Baker. Let's call him my Blake Bortles pick.

Manziel for Smith.
Tennant for Bridgewater.
Eccleston for Clowney.
