    This is hilarious.

    I don't see how he offended Hakeem in any way. Only you took it that way.

    And who tf still says jabroni?!

    Offended? Uhhhhh, No one took it as offense. Have you ever heard of slapstick sayings? If you couldn't tell by the sentence with the usage of words like respek and jabronies, makes you a jabroni. 60% of the time, they show up, every time.

    When someone constantly spews so much bullshit it's hard to tell when they're for real.

    Go back to watching Monday Night Raw.

    That's original man. Did you think of that one all by your little self?

    I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be the first in that regard.

    I'm concerned that people have built Watson up to much in their mind based on very limited data, so that if he isn't the greatest player ever or plays like a normal human being, people are going to turn on him with a huge backlash.

    RG3 is a great cautionary tale. Think about how hyped he was after that rookie year, and that was about 3x as large as sample as we have from Watson.

    The hype is such that I'm sure just typing this is going to set someone off. If he turns out to actually only be a human being, I hope people can forgive him.

    Watson has a better coach that can change the scheme for him, a better ego, knows how to slide, and liked by his teammates

    Thats all fair and dandy, but Watson is a cerebral player that studies the game and knows it in and out, rg3 is not. He is also a natural born leader, which rg3 will never be.

    I agree with the overhype atm and hope he turns out to be at least half as good as he showed in the small sample size. I think he can be, because of the two traits I said rg3 was not.

    RG3 was a diva. Watson has all the intangibles.

    Yep...he is one of the most composed rookie quarterback's ive seen. He wasn't scared to throw against anyone. He's got crazy Brett-Farve - like vision. Most of all, he knows how to win in championship situations. He gets a decent protection next year, he'll cause havoc for other teams.

    Yeah... as someone who watches a lot of NFL but nowhere near as up on it as basketball... you nonetheless have to look at Watson and say how can he not turn out to be a top 10 QB?

    We're not talking crazy protection and running game ala Dak.

    We're not talking "gimmick" based style ala RG3 with the running first approach - which if never injured could have worked a bit long term, but never top 10.

    We're instead talking crappy line, ok running game, 1 receiver, meh offensive team for the last 3 years, turning into an offensive machine, all based on the QBs play, which was making right decisions, putting balls in spots only the receivers could catch them, throwing TDs, and going mano-a-mano with other great QBs and getting heaped with praise by other great defenses.

    He strikes me as a better passing version of Russell Wilson. That's a really f'ing great QB.

    PLEASE DON'T GET INJURED OR SCREW THIS UP IN SOME WAY SPORTS GODS!!!

    Agreed

    But it's not the sports gods that will get DW4.

    It's the failure of the team to provide him adequate protection. (Backup OL signed in FA. Genius idea, I wonder who came up with that idea?) Going on the cheap is going to get DW4 hurt again.
