    Being an LSU alum, it may be blasphemous to say, but I've got concerns about Fournette translating to the pros.

    Btw, the kid that plays behind him, Darrius Guice, is scary good, too.

      What are those concerns?

      • Yeah, that's a bit odd. Pretty much everything I've heard is glowing about how good he could be, and how the NFL age rule is going to just get him injured when he should be in the NFL.

        • I'd like to preface this by saying I'm a huge LSU mark, I've tried really hard to accept Fournette as the one true savior, and when he breaks the NFL single season rushing record I'll deny all of this. So, don't think I'm going all Blue and ****ting on the consensus just to try and seem smart.

          - runs WAY too upright and not behind his pads which has led him to not only be not as good as you'd think in short yardage, but get absolutely planted by smaller, weaker guys when they meet him in the hole

          - hips are super stiff

          - low low low knees, his feet barely leave the ground and I've never seen such a powerful dude get taken down by so many shoestring tackles from DBs in my life. If you hit his foot, he's done because of terrible balance

          This is worst case stuff, but if he ends up being Latavious Murray I'll be bummed but not surprised.

          • Seems a lot of big backs nowadays have issues running upright. I wonder if any of that can be coached.

              My non-expert opinion is that it's a combo of two things:

              - it's harder to run behind your pads when you're tall

              - morons emulating Peterson. The dude is a cyborg, and they can't copy his poor technique and be successful because they aren't cyborgs. He also has lose hips and good lateral wiggle for a man his size.

              • Steelers give VW a 3 year extension. Penciling him in as Timmons' successor. Which I am okay with.

                • They've also brought in Keenan Lewis for a look see.

                  • Browns are trash as usual. 
                    I do like Huge Jackson as a coach figure we have no hope or no life regardless.
                    2-14 again and again.

                    • At least with Gordon/Pryor/Coleman it's going to be an entertaining 2-14 filled with 35-42 games, not 32-3 games.

                      • I'm feeling like 5-11 for Cleveland. Progress!

                          • That Stipe-Overeem fight is gonna have a lot of eyeballs on it with Punk's in cage debut on the same card. Big opportunity for Stipe, especially now that they run USADA testing, Overeem isn't going to be the same guy at all. Unleash the Hellbows, Stipe!

                              Browns are terrible.  We won't be scoring more than 24 very often. 3-13 type year. We are awful team no d. No run game. No line. No qb. One wr maybe. They suck
