There's a lot of room between 'the most blatant push offs of all time' and he didn't push off at all.

I like McMillan, if he is the best player available at 48. I would rather do that than overdraft a lineman if there isn't one worthy of the pick.

Is he a MLB or WLB?

As I have been saying for months, you people have very short memory spans.

Anything short of two offensive linemen that can be starting by mid-season is a poor draft.

That should narrow down your selections for the draft challenge.

Don't be late.

Retired after nailing Boehringer last year. It can't get any better than that.

Mark.. don't fall for it. Brad didn't know that German's name until Mayock started pimping him on live television during draft weekend.

I also don't know the last time Brad participated in the DC. I know for a fact it wasn't last year. I could easily check, but it's not that important.

The Cowboys are going to have Drew Pearson make one their draft pick announcements.

http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/nfl/dallas-cowboys/cowboys-corner-blog/article146822729.html

They should have Nate Wright walk up to the podium, then Pearson come out and push him out of the way and announce the pick.


No, Wright would come and jokingly try and stop Pearson from simply making it to the podium but he'd fall down again untouched.


Nope, it was one of the most blatant pushups of all-time considering the stakes.

Pearson has already admitted he pushed off.


Why do we have to keep doing this?

I know the play is in question (because of fan bias) but Pearson NEVER admitted pushing off. THAT is not up for debate.

Some day with the help of video analysis I will also prove that there was no push off. Can't wait for the day.


Former Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson, appearing earlier this week on PFT Live, spoke at length regarding the original Hail Mary play that resulted in Dallas beating the Vikings in the playoffs at Metropolitan Stadium 41 Decembers ago.
Posted by Mike Florio on December 2, 2016, 1:52 PM EDT

“[Quarterback Roger Staubach] wanted [receiver] Golden Richards to run a post pattern on the left side to hold [safety] Paul Krause to that side of the field,” Pearson said. “You know, the NFL’s all time interception leader. So Roger was going to pump [to] Golden then come back to me down the right side of the field, and by the time he pumped Golden and came back to me the ball was underthrown because I was way down field at that time. I saw it, came back and used my outside arm to get inside leverage on [cornerback] Nate Wright. In doing that there was contact but there was no deliberate push and I was able to catch the ball on the five yard line and back it into the end zone for the touchdown.”

So was there an inadvertent push, Drew?

“I like the way you put that,” Pearson said with a laugh. “What I’m saying is there’s contact, OK? We’re actually playing football out there; it wasn’t tennis or golf. So in doing that and making that move, there was contact on the play. But there was no deliberate push whatsoever.”

The controversial play, which ended Minnesota’s run of two straight Super Bowls and brought a swift and dramatic conclusion to a season in which the Vikings had started 10-0, has stirred passions among Vikings fans for years. An equivocal admission, sort of, that Pearson pushed Wright won’t make it any better.

The only consolation, albeit slim, for Vikings fans comes from the fact that Pearson fired the ball into the air and never saw it again. When did Pearson regret hurling the football out of the field of play?

“As soon as it left my hands,” Pearson said. “I was actually throwing it over the scoreboard and into the parking lot. The only reason I did that is because the night before the game I had this vision that if I was going to catch the winning touchdown in the game [and] I was going to throw the football into the stands. Which was kind of taboo back in the day back then because you got fined $150 and nobody wanted to pay that type of fine because we weren’t making that type of money back then. As it left my hands I realized it wasn’t going into the stands and into the parking lot and after all these years I’ve signed programs, ticket stubs, I’ve met all kinds of people that were at that game that day but no one has come up to me and said, ‘Hey I found the ball.’ Or, ‘I caught the ball.’ Or, ‘Here’s the ball that you caught the Hail Mary with.’ So it’s out there in oblivion.”

He admits that it was an NFL play where two players were making a play and they touched.

Far from admitting he did in fact get away with a pushoff.

I have a huge problem with the stupidity of kids that get busted for pot at the combine...

I have no problem with the pot smoking...

it shouldn't even be a violation...but it is and this is their biggest job interview ever and they can't just stay clean for a month?

Too worried about them never playing to pick them...they are not going to stop smoking pot.

The punch a girl in the face problem is so much worse an offense, but that is not part of a chronic lifestyle problem...

now maybe Mixon or Brantley might go on to have further domestic violence issues...

but that isn't a pattern in their lives which means they are not likely to be suspended...

(well, it isn't clear how the Brantley issue will play out with potential suspension because of how recently it happened)

So I would not take Mixon off my board, but I would hesitate to take Peppers or Foster before the first 3 rounds at least...


So really you only care about the players eligibility, not their morality?

bottom line when drafting, eligibility trumps morality

Just saying Mixon in particular doesn't exhibit a pattern of behavior...

pot smokers who can't abstain for a month or not gonna stop, in my experience...

I can forgive the one time horrible judgement

but I can't risk losing a high pick to someone already in the program...

just too many Randy Gregory's out there


To say Mixon had a "one time horrible judgement" is incredibly generous.

The fact he had the parking attendant incident just a year ago tells you he still has a real anger management issue and/or serious woman issues.


Was the parking attendant a woman?


Its interesting. Everything out there seems to go out of its way to avoid any gender specific pronouns when talking about the case.

Although at the end of this video, the reporter refers to the attendant as "him":

http://kfor.com/2016/11/04/documents-detail-altercation-between-ous-joe-mixon-and-parking-attendant/


I've always understood it was a woman. This report refers to her as "she".

https://nondoc.com/2016/11/04/ou-parking-attendant-reports-joe-mixon/

oh shit, struck her with a deadly weapon

throwing ripped up bits of paper, that is clearly continuing a long history of violence against women!

Now he's off my board...holy shit what was I thinking?


Seriously? Have you seen the video where he decks the woman? Then he does this number?

If you think that's OK you are OK with violence against women.

What is this big deal with violence against women. How about violence against anybody.


It's extra cowardly to attack the more vulnerable.

Sort of like AD did.

So women are more vulnerable. They have to be protected by us big strong powerful men. OK. If you beat somebody up is it really any different effect whether the person was male of female. That person is still just as beat up.


No one said you are big strong or powerful?

I never gave you props for this one. Here they are belatedly.

We'll put this on hold until I can use video evidence to mirror the play front and back in slow motion to show exactly what happened. It will be my magnum opus.

Todd I don't know if what Shakey says is true, but I simply can't fathom how you can watch that play and think Pearson didn't push off.

He is really getting me sick with the continuous claiming that he nailed anything. I think about all he could nail would be an actual nail through a piece of balsa wood.
