Bobby Beathard Selected for Induction into Hall of Fame

February 3, 2018

by Steve Thomas

Former Washington Redskins General Manager Bobby Beathard was selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018 tonight.

Beathard served as Redskins GM from 1978 – 88 and was the principal architect of the franchise’s golden era teams of the 1980s, which included three Super Bowl visits and two championships in 1983 and 1988.  Beathard’s influence was also felt on the famed 1992 team, which is considered to be one of the greatest teams in NFL history.  During Beathard’s reign as GM, the Redskins went 11 – 3 in the postseason, for a league-best .786 winning percentage.

Beathard’s draft successes including Hall of Fame enshrinees wide receiver Art Monk, cornerback Darrell Green, and guard Russ Grimm, as well as several other Redskins luminaries such as linebacker Monte Coleman, defensive ends Charles Mann and Dexter Manley, and quarterback Mary Rypien.  Beathard also signed several undrafted free agents who were critical to the team’s championship runs, such as three time Hall of Fame finalist, tackle Joe Jacoby, and center Jeff Bostic.  He also brought USFL luminaries Doug Williams, Gary Clark, and Ricky Sanders to the organization.

Beathard began his NFL career in 1963 as a scout in the Kansas City Chiefs organization.  He later served with the Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins before being hired by the Redskins as the team’s general manager.  He then returned to the NFL after his retirement from the Redskins to become the general manager of the San Diego Chargers, where he stayed from 1990 to 2000.  His Chargers team played in the 1994 Super Bowl.

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder made the following statement about Beathard’s selection:  “Bobby’s illustrious NFL career made him truly deserving of this honor, and the entire Washington Redskins family could not be prouder that the Pro Football Hall of Fame has secured the place in history he so rightly deserves. Bobby was the architect of many of our dearest memories as Redskins fans, and the run of dominance he helped build will always hold a special place in our minds and in our hearts. We cherish his contributions to the Washington Redskins, and we are proud tonight to see that his contributions to the game will be forever immortalized in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

Redskins team president Bruce Allen stated, “I am happy for Bobby and the entire Beathard family upon hearing of this richly deserved honor. His legacy has always lived forever in Redskins history, and I am pleased to see that it will live forever in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as well.”

Beathard will be enshrined on August 4, 2018, in Canton, Ohio.

    33 degrees and cold-ass rain here in Woodbridge with a few ‘soft’ icicles hanging of the deck. Good day for inside stuff. Just finished wiping down all my firearms and running a lightly oiled patch through the bores. I do this quarterly regardless of use.

    Any guesses on if the Skins get a compensatory pick(s) for Garcon and/or Jackson?

    • AustinSkin

      When are comp picks awarded? My guess is no.

    • Lbsand

      Signing Brown and Swearinger would negate that, plus there’s the Irish twins; not positive the twins had a ‘comp’ pick round assigned but assume so.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    65, should’ve responded “well, I heard your wife was, I was just trying to fit in.”

  • HTTRsince65

    here’s another reason not to ever want to visit or live in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Yesterday I was at a local sports bar when I see an elderly gentleman definitely in the 70s come in where in a Vietnam veteran ball cap that’s two sizes too small so it sits on top of his head looks goofy but I still shook the man’s hand and thanked him for his service. We started talking about our military stories and times and service and where we serve and everything was going fine until all of a sudden he drops the n word! now I am a 52 year old white male and I have 3 children and we don’t tolerate that I immediately looked at the gentleman and said we don’t use that language here. And then he looked at me and said I am an N lover!
    the management promptly moved him out of there thank God. But how sad to me in this day and age that hatred and racism runs that deep in someone’s veins.

    • WaitingGuilty

      Dude that’s not surprising to me in the least.

      • HTTRsince65

        living in the South The Stereotype is that one might hear that all the time but I’ve been here since 1988 and it took some idiot from Pittsburgh coming down for me to hear it like that

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Many northern peeps are every bit as prejudice as their southern counterparts.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      He’s not from “this day and age”, not that that excuses his language.

      • HTTRsince65

        He’s definitely in his 70s but he was an engineer so he’s bright enough to know you don’t use that language it’s pure hatred is what it is and it’s disgusting

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          I can show you an engineer right now that is that way, though he whispers. Not a very good engineer, either. Generally, if you don’t nail a design on the first go-round, yet are also resistant to constructive input, you suck.

    • WHY3

      You would have to be very sheltered from reality for that to be surprising.

      And that’s not just a “Pittsburgh” thing.

      • HTTRsince65

        I’m not sheltered from reality at all racism exists in all cultures I get that but to be that overt and speak out in a public Bar like that and I mean loudly call me out What a hateful person. Racism exists I get it and hopefully it’ll be eradicated I’m not sure but I’m definitely I’m far from sheltered

        • WHY3

          Older generation guy, at a bar (where people tend to run their mouths) does not surprise me at all.

          Granted, I think it is unusual, but not that surprising. But yeah, it would have taken me aback considering you just thanked him for his service. I wonder if he was just fighting to protect white people’s freedom when he was in the military.

          • HTTRsince65

            Evidently

    • Kelly

      Good on you! What does this have to do with Pittsburgh, though?

      • HTTRsince65

        well he said that’s where he was visiting from and I was just piling on since I think Pittsburgh fans are obnoxious just like Eagles fans and this guy definitely proved that to be true at least with this one example

        • WHY3

          Steelers fans are definitely as obnoxious as Eagles fans. Plus, many of them seem to be bandwagon fans.

      Namaste

    • WaitingGuilty

      You never cease to amaze scamp. I had no idea you were so prolific!

    • HTTRsince65

      I think selling your business for a dollar instead of giving it away might be the loophole that you need but just check with attorneys they should be able to answer that very rapidly for you

  • kon, for now
  • SCamp

    So… the bank is making it extremely difficult for me to turn my landscape business into an employee owned business here before I leave. They don’t want to let me out of the personal guarantee for the business Line of Credit. I don’t want to sell it though… I want to give it to my employees…

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      $1?

      • SCamp

        All businesses carry debt. I’m not going to be personally liable for the operating debt of a company I am no longer a part of. $1 isn’t going to get it done. The bank won’t take the employees as personal guarantees

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          $1 represents “loophole options”, the question mark means “I don’t know”.

          • SCamp

            I’ll figure it out… but it might take sometime. The problem is… well, there are so many as it’s a pass through S corp. The personal one becomes buying and selling of homes that are part of or would become part of the collateral.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Maybe ask Squinns, if you want someone up here’s advise.

  • Different_Cat

    If BA does try to hold KC hostage by tagging him I would expect huge league sanctions wouldn’t be far behind.

    • WaitingGuilty

      Ok mara.

      • Kelly

        Would you be surprised?

        • WaitingGuilty

          Yes- I’d be surprised if sanctions came down on a team for doing nothing but following clear league guidelines and rules…oh, wait…

      • Different_Cat

        Just being realistic. You know how the league loves it when teams play fast and loose with the rules in effort to achieve some purpose that clearly runs contrary to the intent of the rule.

        • WaitingGuilty

          It’s a great observation DC.

        It sounds addicting… which I don’t need.

          • SCamp

            I’m sure… but I don’t have more time to invest in a TV show… and binge watching isn’t my thing. Now binge fishing… I can do that.

          • WaitingGuilty

            That reminds me of the old saying- “Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime…buy a man a filet of fish sandwich..and you are supporting Asians that club dolphins to death”

          • SCamp

            Fuck The Dolphins

          • WaitingGuilty

            Haha.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Where I’m from, fathers teach sons how to fish.

  • WaitingGuilty

    Well- we have Smith under a decent contract- that’s an asset. If the team does this tag idea- which I’m kind of digging by the way- we could theoretically trade smith to the browns if it came down to it.

    Fun times!

    • SCamp

      SMITH FOR A FIRST!!!

      • WaitingGuilty

        Genius!

        Don’t tell me you all wouldn’t like this if we tagged KC.

            He’s no longer a Redskin so I no longer care.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I can think of two or three that would disagree.

      • SCamp

        The point is that it’s a ridiculous scenario that much of Twitter is buying hook, line and sinker because it’s…well… Dan and Bruce

        • Zig-Zag_BC

            It’s great for early breaking news. Just have to tune out the rest of the nonsense. It is often hilarious for this very reason also.

          • noonefromtampa

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          One down

    • DC-Dan

      That would be the dumbest way to handle the situation. If he doesn’t sign it they drag this cancerous nonsense out longer and then if they end up rescinding it they don’t even get a compensatory pick for him. If he does sign it and doesn’t agree to a LTD with any team then a trade won’t happen and we’ll be stuck with his salary leaving us unable to do anything in free agency. Just let him go, it’s over.

      • SCamp

        Agreed… spite is no way to handle legit business

        • noonefromtampa

          the fans do, not sure about the coaching staff
          they like Teddy and Case

          • SCamp

            That’s what I meant… but I wouldn’t count them out. Teddy beat up… Case a one year wonder…

        • Hope-18

          I thought Case Keenum was better than Cousins?

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Yeah

      • WHY3

        That I can believe.

        • SCamp

          You believe Bruce has a buddy? I’m skeptical.

    • HTTRsince65

      he is a joke two NFL insiders as well

      • SCamp

        I don’t think he is. I’ve heard numerous reports that he is considered one of the smartest people in the NFL. I, personally, don’t see it but you don’t get that rep for nothing I guess.

        • WHY3

          Constructing contracts, yeah, I can see that. Playing politics, I can see that as well.

          Judging talent? Meh.

          • SCamp

            I’m not talking about that (talent)… I simply don’t think he’s dumb enough to tag Kirk out of spite and risk the repercussions. He would be out of a job.

          • WHY3

            No, he’s not. I do think he could leak info just to see if he gets any interest. But without something rock solid, no, he’s not an idiot.

  • CJPiper

    I wasn’t a big fan of Rypiens, but I wouldn’t call him Mary.

          Uh, no. There is no infrastructure bill as yet and thus no money has been appropriated for it. What’s more, after the ill-considered tax cuts there is really no way to pay for the needed infrastructure investment.

      • Hope-18

        No shit Austin… but you condemn Cousins behind THOSE guys and no RB that makes a difference? NOW we have to fix LG because Smith needs players around him? Just pointing out the obvious here.

        • HTTRsince65

          Tbf, Austin wasn’t alone saying those things.

        • AustinSkin

          Not really saying that. I’m just dealing with the reality that Cousins is a goner. So keep building the best foundation around your QB.

        • Hope-18

    • Zig-Zag_BC
    • HTTRsince65

      it is interesting how I kept saying over and over give cousins a stout defense and a strong rushing attack and see what he can do but no, that was falling on deaf ears. Cousins should have been able to take the team on his back or else he’s garbage. Now of course, with Alex Smith we’ve got to get the same thing he had in Kansas City, and oh by the way, he had those things and he still didn’t win

    Best Superbowl party you ever attended, or hosted?

    For me it was in Vegas. I was at a large conference, and the conference rented a huge venue for a Super Bowl party. (Packers vs. Steelers). Huge TV screens every where. A small army of babes serving drinks and great appetizers non stop.

    If your drink was half empty, another drink arrived in minutes. The food was amazing. Crab balls, Grilled Thai chicken strips on skewers, meatballs, ribs, you name it.

    Great time, although almost everyone left a wee bit hammered. The next day of the conference started out really slow.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

            I was watching some video of him yesterday. While very powerful, He rushes with a very high pad level. I’m wondering if that will neutralize him at the next level.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            You wanna take Vita at 13?

          • AustinSkin

            I’d prefer Payne, but Vita is cool. Just make sure you snag at least one guy off that list.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            I don’t put HP above those two guys, it’s who I feel like we can get in two that’s my best fit.

          • AustinSkin

            Here’s HP vs. TCU. Almost everytime, the OL gets leverage underneath him. IMO, he needs to learn how to rush with a lower pad level.

        Minus the Superbowl meals in captivity, a family friend brought BBQ ribs with homemade BBQ sauce that had way too much orange peel in it (lip numbing) and a jug of homemade blackberry wine, which he threw back up on my front door threshold while making a mad, staggering dash for the great outdoors. Both his cooking, and wine are banned.

          Breaded and fried meat product 🙂

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Lol

      • Kelly

        That was the Denver shitshow after the 2013 season, so it was a horrible game to boot. Plus, they don’t get the commercials in Thailand, it was just repeat loop of a local paint company commercial.

      • kon, for now

        That wasn’t chicken. It was bat.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Fruit bat, went with the papaya.

    BB may not be able to nullify the Eagles defense, but you can bet your bottom dollar he’s got a good plan for the Nick Foles WC special. Pats just need to score more than Philly, obviously.

    • kon, for now

      No philly QB has ever broken their leg in the SB. Today could be the day.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        I have no response to that. Next question…..

    • HTTRQGC

      Foles is the weakest link on the field today imo. With all he has both sides of the ball may prove differently.

  • kon, for now

    Anyway, the acquisition of Smith alters, in my opinion, what the team should be targeting in the draft. No sense in bring that guy in without providing weapons and protection.

    RB + LG = shit we need to get the offense’s foundation addressed.

    • Lbsand

      IMO, it doesn’t change anything except not even remotely considering drafting a QB in the first 2 rounds, if at all.

      • kon, for now

        It’s his window…that changes things up. By a factor of a lot.

        • Lbsand

          BPA, every round, every draft. Keep stockpiling talent. Once you get get close, then and only then can you reach a little for a need IMO.

          • kon, for now

            That philosophy neglects specific needs. Such as building the lines.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            But it’s safe…….

          • kon, for now

    Whatever about the iggles defense

    Overrated group

    Super soft schedule

    Padded even further with three straight home games

    • WHY3

      Their defense may be a bit over-rate, but their offense is under-rated with Foles. They spread the ball around and have a strong rushing attack.

      The Pats D is over-rated.

    • Kelly

      Playoff opponents?

      • kon, for now

        Two home games against teams that weren’t prepared.

      I dunno Kon. That was pre Minny speak. They manhandled the Vikes.

    • Lbsand

      One thing for sure: the Eagles D was a much different animal at The Link than on the road.

    • Kelly

      You realize if these clowns tag him, it puts the FA money on hold until they can trade him…. IF they can trade him.

      • HTTRQGC

        Like Smith trade . Get all that worked out before the 14th or 15th. Wont be drawn out deal.

        • Kelly

          Of course it won’t, everything goes smoothly with this crew.

          • HTTRQGC

            Lol…(Bruce has proven to be the trader…lol )

      • WHY3

        It would be ridiculously stupid to tag him and not have a trading partner lined up.

        I mean, Bruce isn’t all that smart, but he’s not that much of an idiot.

        • Lbsand

          Unfortunately, he is. Even leaking he is considering this is moronic.

  • HTTRsince65

    I hate to say it but I think it’s going to be 31 to 17 Eagles win. Their defense is ferocious and their rushing attack is strong .
    I really hope I’m wrong I can’t pull for any division foe.

    • Kelly

      I always pull for the NFC East to make the Super Bowl, and for the NFC to win it. I hope you’re right on the score, but the Pats just have too much big game experience for me to think the Eagles will win.

      • HTTRQGC

        Good points. Tough game to call…

    • HTTRQGC

      Kinda the way K feel. Foles will do just enough.

    • WHY3

      I agree. I think the Eagles win for the exact reasons you said. They put up 38 on one of the better defenses in the league in the NFC championship.

      And I hope I’m wrong. Next to Dallas, they are the team I hope loses every week..

  • AustinSkin

    Super Bowl predictions?

      23 – 20, Pats

    • HTTRQGC

      29-27. Eagles.

    • Kelly

      Here’s the deal for me. The Eagles have the better team… but the Pats have a more mature organization, and Tom Brady has done this a million times, versus zero for young Mr. Foles. I think the Patriots win because this is what they do.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Eagles need a perfect game, period.

    • WHY3

      Eagles 28, Pats 20

    Hail to Bruce ! I may have to eat crow on the FO if they pull off a tag and trade…transition tag is realistic. Maybe the plan is more detailed than we think.
    At least they recognize giving up a 3rd pick for Smith was steep and they are trying to recoup.

    Washington media M.Jones. C.Russell already dissing business decisions that haven’t occured

    • HTTRQGC

      I suggested a 3 team trade some time back. Maybe Browns Broncos or Jets get involved…maybe we still draft a QB high…and maybe Smith is traded to the odd man out after the draft. Saga maybe far from over

      • HTTRQGC

        Still may be some hope to land Baker ‘Joe T’ Mayfield !! I know all ya’ll all in on that hope !

      I’m so jaded at this point – I’m convinced they’re not even going to be able to let him walk without making it worse.

      • HTTRQGC

        Well if they let Kirk/agent pick his team and if that team is willing…satifies all parties. Not sure why Kirk wouldnt go along…

        • Kelly

          Kirk is looking forward to being a free agent. I don’t think that he wants Washington to pigeonhole his next contract again.

          • HTTRQGC

            If he gets 28 mil starting point…?

      That would be so galactically stupid, I don’t even have the words. Unless there is an agreement from team AND Kirk BEFORE he’s tagged, which probably is a rules violation.

    BC, are you seriously up here trying to say that Manley was comparable to LT? If so I can only conclude that you were too young to see them play.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I’m saying LT was top, Manley was better than many others that got the nod. I compared him to LT so as not to “cherry pick” stats, you smell what I’m steppin’ in.

      • Different_Cat

        The thing about Dexter was, he really had no interest in doing anything but rushing the passer.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Bullshit, ask Chicago about that.

          • Kelly

            Dexter was a pure pass rusher. It didn’t mean he didn’t do anything else ever, but he was a pass rusher through and through.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Dex played the run, also.

          • Kelly

            LOL yes. If they ran the ball, he didn’t just sit down and watch.

          • Lbsand

            And the truth is: Charles Mann was a better player. The most underrated Skin ever IMO.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Didn’t say he wasn’t, and I agree. He was the ying to Dex’s yang.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            So, what? I don’t get a response?

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            And you couldn’t stop him with two.

          • Different_Cat

  • Lbsand

    1), If the Skins tag Kirk, they can’t trade him until he signs it. 2), Kirk could just say he won’t sign a LTD any of the teams that might be interested, driving down any trade value. 3) Once he does sign it, the Skins have to count that against the cap, limiting what they can do during the FA period.

    Just keep moving, don’t even look back.

  • kon, for now

    It’s crazy and, not likely. However….if the Skins know they have a couple potential landing spots, putting the tag on Cousins sets a hard ceiling on what it will cost to buy him up. Even though it would be stupid high, those teams will know exactly how much coin they need get it done.

    They bring him in, secured. And then…rework the deal more favorable to their terms.

    • Lbsand

      Yup, that’s crazy. Leave it to Bruce to make a bad situation pathetic.

        The sun rises from Bruce’s loins, travels around his head, and sets in the crack of his ass – flounder

      • kon, for now

        I wish they would. Collusion with a silent look. Secret handshake or some shit.

        • MJ45

          They need position caps. If not where does it end? 100 million a year?

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Can NFL teams do sign and trades like NBA? The deal isn’t accelerated as a dead cap hit like any other player with salary remaining?

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Kelly, so about your RV trip…
    Oklahoma and Kansas (not on your route) have this taskforce that targets RVs on the interstate with the idea that they could be rolling meth labs. Be especially careful in Muskogee County, Oklahoma. The DA drives his Crown Vic out there on I -40 and directs marked units to pull over certain vehicles. Don’t give them probable cause, if that’s even a thing. Maybe put a MAGA sticker on the back, a Thomas Road Baptist Church Spring jamboree or bust poster, something. Just be careful in Oklahoma.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Of course, heaven forbid we let “him” in…

          Having all of your talking heads be HOF’rs is good for business.

          “You know, Howie just really represents what we fantasize we’d be like if we weren’t douchebags in suits”

  • etrod

    Congratulations to Bobby Beathard for making it in to the HOF.

    F them for no Jacoby.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      k0n has a movie trailer for you.

  • Flounder

    Does anyone have interest in going after either of these guys they are the best DT in FA’s.

    Dontari Poe DT 27 ATL
    Bennie Logan DT 28 KC

    • etrod

      I like Logan.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Yes

  • Kelly

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday, people – time to start firing up your whatevers and checking on those marinades.

    The Kirk Cousins saga may not be over. I’m told that rival teams talking
    with Redskins brass believe Bruce Allen and Washington could make a
    concerted effort to trade the QB, preventing Cousins from hitting the
    open market.
    _____________________________________________________

    Well that would be a ballsy bit of brinksmanship. The only way that happens is if we tag Cousins, who could then simply sign the tag.

    Is Cousins willing to sit on the bench this year for one last Redskins payday and spite?

    Is Bruce willing to make that gamble to save a little bit of face and a draft pick from a situation that has humiliated him?

    Yikes.

    • Flounder

      I would love to see it happen but not sure they could pull it off.

      • etrod

        They would have to work with Kirk and his agent

    • Flounder

      Not sure how it humiliates BA, Kirk was never going to sign here had no intention on negotiating so not much else BA could have done.

    What to say about Joe Jacoby snub? Ridiculous!?!?

    You know Lawrence Taylor is widely viewed as the prototype for the modern edge-rusher. Football’s answer to that was to develop a next-generation left tackle. The prototype was Joe Jacoby.

    Their careers spanned the exact same time frame 1981-1993, and became the iconic representation of trench-warfare in the modern NFL.

    The problem is that there wasn’t a lab of bean counters like PFF inventing fancy stats to rank the kind of thing that Jacoby was doing. At the time it was enough for the football universe to simply know that Jacoby was a monster and pity the fool who had to match up with him.

    Whatever. The Gibbs-era Redskins were the greatest football TEAMS ever constructed in the NFL. Sadly, the HOF is a collection of stat-monkeys and don’t know what to do with the players involved in building the greatest TEAMS in the ultimate team sport of football.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Dexter Manley has 103.5 career sacks and two Superbowl rings, yeah, I’m counting his rookie year and yeah, he was double teamed for his entire career. The HOF is more than a collection of stat- monkeys, they’re also a pack of assholes.

  • p1funk

    Steve, my man, you forgot to mention the single biggest achievement of Bobby – hiring Joe Gibbs, who was a coaching “nobody” at the time!

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    And later, Go Pats

  • SCamp

    Alright gentlemen… another long day with the Union Rescue Mission Superbowl party tomorrow. Need a soak and a cigar… my last vice.

    Hasta Manana

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Later

  • SCamp

    So what’s the criteria for the “senior” selection?

    • SCamp

      Okay… so no one knows

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        For the HOF? I figured you’d Google it like I’d have to.

        • SCamp

          It’s been a loooong day of wrestling and I was too lazy

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            I hear ya, how’d lil SCamp do?

          • SCamp

            He did well… came in 6 out of 16. For him that’s pretty good. He’s usually middle of the pack. Our team did spectacular. I coached a lot of medal holders and even a couple trophy wielders today.

          • SCamp

            850 kids… 12 mats. LOT of wrestling

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            12 mats, jeez.

          • SCamp

            Unreal… first outdoor tournament I’ve ever seen

          • Big Buck64

            Never heard of that before .

          • SCamp

            I hadn’t either

          • SCamp

            It was at the Army Navy Academy in Carlsbad… about a half a mile from the beach

          • Big Buck64

            I bet there was some good wrestlers .

          • SCamp

            Olympic coach there for a clinic before the matches too.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Good deal, my congratulations to the both of you!

          • SCamp

            Thanks… couple of pins had him really pumped

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            That’s good, build that confidence.

          • SCamp

            It’s just starting to click… now at the end of the season

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            He’s 8, right?

          • SCamp

            yep

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Yeah, no sweat. His next growth spurt will have you struttin’ like a proud papa, lol.

          • SCamp

            It’ll be interesting to see how competitive south carolina is compared to here. These desert kids and parents take this WAAAAY seriously. It’s amazing to see the skills on some of these little kids

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            It oughta be pretty competitive.

          • SCamp

            I know Georgia wasn’t when I moved there from Ohio. I rolled through that state after getting my ass handed to me in Ohio

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Well, I mean… that’s Ohio. There’ll be some kids

          • SCamp

            Yea… California is so big with so many farmer and desert teams… the competition is unreal.

          • SCamp

            I don’t remember seeing a single Mexican kid when I was wrestling. Now they LOVE the sport

          • Zig-Zag_BC

          • SCamp

            Got a while before we get there. He still likes it for now. Let’s see how long that lasts

          • Big Buck64

            Ohio is wresting crazy . Talent everywhere .

          • SCamp

            The whole midwest really… Michigan, Ohio, Penn, Iowa, Nebraska

          • Big Buck64

            Yeah. That’s where all the great coaches wind up too.

          • SCamp

            My high school coach just went into the Hall Of Fame. Great coach

          • Big Buck64

            Va Tech had a nice program going , then the coach got the job at Iowa St

          • Big Buck64

            I don’t think you will find it like that in SC

          • SCamp

            Already scoped out a few wrestling clubs…

    • Steve Thomas

      I do. We interviewed Rick Gosselin from the Dallad Morning News about it 7 or 8 months ago for the show. Basically, the senior committee gets together, nominates their candidates (I think it’s 2 per year. I think.) Then those name(s) go to the full committee for an up or down separate vote, which is essentially guaranteed. Rick said the odds of selection out of the senior committee are very long because of the sheer number of candidates. So, in effect, Joe’s odds just became even slimmer, which is why he really wanted to make it on the regular ballot. A real shame.

      4 offensive linemen in over 70 years. (Not sure on Gatski)

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Obviously need to get some red blood on that judging panel.

  • Kelly
    • Zig-Zag_BC

      He pulls that off and I’ll pull the green light off of him.

    • DC-Dan

      Yea, that ain’t happening.

  • DC-Dan

    4 OLineman made the top 10 finalists…Jake wan’t one of them. Tony Boselli made it even though he only had 6 healthy seasons in the league and even missed 8 games during those years, so 5.5 seasons got him closer than Jake.

  • Kelly

    Great writeup!

    • kon, for now

      It’s all nice’n stuff. Not being critical of anyone or anything.

      Awwwww!

      • Kelly

        There was zero need to bring up the murder accusation. That’s like being the dude who shows up at Kobe’s HOF induction and starts yelling “Rapist!”. It’s not untrue, but it isn’t the time or place.

        • kon, for now

          Twitter is like showing up at a HOF induction?

          Hmmm. I didn’t realize twitter was that powerful.

          Just rib’n ya btw

          • Kelly

            Twitter can be *extremely* powerful 🙂

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Just ask the POTUS

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    from the last thread about joe jacoby:

    i remember thinking, “jeez…. joe is over 300 pounds”. that was HUGE in the 80s. 305 and fast and agile…. changed left tackle.

  • kon, for now

    Haven’t been the dominant competitive team we were since that first piece left town.

    Congratulations Bobby Beathard.

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      i had hoped scot were another beathard. those are hard to find.
