Re: Colombi Transferring

I don't know if we can fault GA for bringing in Shelley, but we can fault him for how he handled the situation. If his intent was to bring in Shelley as a strong 2nd option to Columbi, he must not have conveyed that idea to Columbi and family. Gary's disloyalty has been thrust into the spotlight, a...

Re: Colombi Transferring

Well I guess that Henry, and or the staff did not think he was as good as Shelley, maybe they both thought that. The most popular player on the team is the backup Q.B. as far as the fans go. Noone here know just how good Henry would have been, because he only played as a mop up Q.B. Gary hasn’t bee...

Re: Colombi Transferring

I honestly believe that in a vacuum there is not much difference between Colombi and Shelley as far as production. The real problem comes in how this move affects the rest of the team though and how they produce as a group now. I guess I don't see the value in the risk versus reward with this decisi...

Re: Colombi Transferring

Way to throw a bomb in your own locker room GA. I'm sort of hoping the season is cancelled or moved now....this team is going to need some time to figure out what the hell they are.

Re: New QB transfer?

Guys GA wants a running QB, I was told early on not to be shocked if Peasly end up being the starter. Peasley certainly meets the runner part of that equation, but there isn't any proof that he is even serviceable at the remainder of the QB duties. Colombi may not have the straight line speed of Pe...

I think 7 is the floor. I believe people are underestimating how much experience we have returning compared to last year.
