Let’s Define A “Truck”

According to dictionary.com a truck is defined as “any of various wheeled frames used for transporting heavy objects.”

Job well done. A great post if I do say so myself.

No, just kidding, this post is not about  a lorry -as the Brits call it- but instead it’s about the word “truck” as a verb, and more specifically the meaning it has acquired with football connotation. Most people know this term, but for those of you that don’t it is in reference to when a player (usually in possession of the ball) flattens or “runs over” his opponent – like a truck.

Eric Berry – More Than Just A Great Football Player

I have recently read a large number of stories, articles, blog posts, twitter feeds, etc. saying how great of a person Eric Berry has been since arriving at the Chiefs training camp in St. Joseph – a great teammate, great to the fans, and of course a great player. Each time I’ve read something about this I swelled with Big Orange Tennessee Pride and considered posting about it. Unfortunately then I would hesitate and think that KC writers, and bloggers that are fans are, of course, going to be writing these things. However today I received an email that was forwarded to me from Bryan. I’m not exactly sure where it originated but it was a first-hand account of just how amazing Eric Berry is – and I’m talking about off the field. We already know how amazing he is one the field. The email I speak of will be copied and pasted in it’s entirety at the bottom of this post.

WMD: 1998 Colts vs 2010 Rams

This segment of WMD (Weller’s Musing and Divination) came via a suggestion from Bryan, which he mentioned in this post. The suggestion was to compare the 1998 Colts team with the 2010 Rams team. The ’98 season was Peyton Manning’s rookie year with the Colts and this 2010 season is obviously going to be Sam Bradford’s rookie year with the Rams. The Colts were coming off an abysmal 3-13 season that landed them the top pick in the 98 Draft. The Rams are coming off an abysmal 1-15 season that landed them the top pick in the 10 Draft. Colts top receiver, Marvin Harrison was entering his third season and had yet to really put together a great season. Rams top receiver, Donnie Avery is entering his third season and has yet to really put together a great season. It was Colts head coach, Jim Mora’s first year with the team. It’s Rams head coach, Steve Spagnuolo’s second year with the team. The Colts star running back, Marshall Faulk, who was easily the best player on the team, was entering his fifth season and was coming off a good season in which he was able to play in three more games than he had the previous year. The Rams star running back, Steven Jackson, who is easily the best player on the team, is entering his seventh season and is coming off a great season in which he was able to play in three more games than he had the previous year. The Colts had finished dead last in the worst division in the league the previous year. The Rams finished dead last in the worst division in the league last year. Also, when all else failed the Colts had the small bright spot that was their punter, Chris Gardocki. And, when all else fails the Rams have the small bright spot that is their punter, Donnie Jones.

New Recruiting Technique

Be original.

If that’s what the new coaching staff for Tennessee football was going for then I would think it’s safe to say that they achieved it. There are multiple reports that multiple coaches ripped off their shirts and got everyone fired up at Tennessee’s Junior Day, where more than 100 high school players were in attendance to see if they would want to be part of Tennessee’s 2010 recruiting class. I have certainly never heard of anything like this happening. Continue reading

Why I’m Excited for the 2009 Tennessee Vols Football Season

Defense.

It’s simple, I am so ridiculously excited about our defense for next year. Let me start by pointing out a few defensive players that I think we will miss next year: DB DeAngelo Willingham, LB Ellix Wilson, LB Nevin McKenzie, DL Robert Ayers, and DL Demonte Bolden. Though we will definitely notice the absence of each and every one of those players, I only see Ayers and Bolden being drafted this April. With that out of the way, I’ll go ahead and bring up the good things. Continue reading
