Heeeeeeey buddies. Good Tuesday evening to ya! Hoping this one, as always, finds you well. Let’s chat. That is a suggestion for some of you. It is an order for you, ryanJ87.
Who Is Your Spirit Animal?
It’s become a popular, albeit fun, thing to do on the Twitter machine the past couple of days (h/t to @TJHernandez), to identify your NFL spirit animal. The player that is a representation of you or what you want to be. Wolves or lions, something fierce, are probably what most people would like to think lies beneath the surface.
But we’re talkin’ NFL spirit animals. And it all goes back to the NFL Draft.
Year - the year in which you turned 18
Pick - the day your birthday is on
...my spirit animal is Rob Morris, and I don’t want to play anymore.
(here’s an assist -- use Draft History to find your spirit animal)
R.I.P Buddy Ryan
There have been times where I’ve wanted Gregg Williams to treat the Rams’ offensive coordinator like this...
On a serious note though, the NFL family lost a good one today. And one that impacted Jeff Fisher in a big way. Here’s his official statement on Ryan’s passing.
Today is a difficult day as I remember my friend and mentor, Buddy Ryan. Buddy gave me my coaching start in this league and for that I am forever grateful. His knowledge, passion for football and the love he had for his players and coaches are traits that have shaped so many careers, including my own. I will always be thankful for the time that I was privileged to spend with him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rex and Rob and the entire Ryan family.
I Need a New TV Show...
I can’t do some shows though...Mad Men? No thanks. Pretty much anything that involves being in a hospital or a government building is off limits for me. I recently tried watching The Wire...yeah, not happening.
