    I can't even READ John Walters with out getting goose bumps and teary eyed? Jesus H. Tap Dancin' ****** I am a baby.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: Blum: Imagine the Possibilities

    And those quotes are why I had John Walters sign an autograph ball for me at fanfest. I dare anyone to read those and not hear them in John Walters (or James Earl Jones') voice.

    Nice piece Blum.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Re: Blum: Imagine the Possibilities

    Great read.

    I have to be honest, Tre's post in the "state of the fanbase" thread might be even better.

    These two write-ups have me jacked right now.

    Re: Blum: Imagine the Possibilities

    God, I got chills just reading that. I could picture the plays in my head exactly reading Walter's play by play.

    1 day, 22 hours, 1 minute can't pass by soon enough... Oh wait, 0 minutes now!!!

    Yeah, that was an accident. Through interruptions this afternoon I wrote mine up, posted it, and there was Blums. They are kind of the same thing but a little different perspective.


    It's all snark from here on out
