Quincy Morgan Reaches Out to TCF

Unread postby peeker643 » Mon Jan 30, 2012 1:37 pm

No joke.

Got an email yesterday from Rich advising Quincy Morgan was weary of his reputation on this site and wanted to talk somebody about it.

So we had Jonathan Knight verify it was Q-Money and interview the man.

Tell Q to relax. This is the first time I have thought of his name since he left.

Personally, I think that might be the entire point of his email.

I thoughts was really fine work by Jordan. And Q is right. He really didn't have a bad stint here.

What I did find interesting was the topic of the 2002 playoff game as a watershed moment. I couldn't agree more. Between that and Al 's passing we went from being on track from expansion to a relevant franchise to a disaster.

Butchum flipped out at 1/2 time and essentially fired Fazio and the vets on D knew he was off his rocker. they called him on it and he manufactured a salary cap "crisis" and gutted the team on D of its veteran leadership.

Enter Randy.

Butchum begets Collins/Savage/RAC begets ManKok begets the LaMonte syndicate.

I agree with Q that fans are hatas in C-town. But the circumstances create a "dem bums" culture. Wasn't always that way at all and can easily swing back.

Winning solves everything.

Jonathan Knight interviewed Q, but yeah... well done.

Bleedat!!

And I agree; Q was okay. Appears he may be a bit sensitive at this point but whatever. I'd even go so far as to say if he walked into the berea facility today he'd be no worse than the #2 receiver on that team. Don't care if he's lost a step or his hands are shot.

Have zero problems with Morgan, nor anyone else in that recieving corp during that time. Hell, give me that receiving corp right now, and I'm a happy man.

I can't keep trek of all the NKOTB writers' names. Sorry.

Seriously, it was good work.

Frankly, I think Q and Little are very comparable.

What's NKOTB?

I agree with you. We know what Q ended as, and I'd say Little has more upside, but yeah...similar.

Little's a bit bigger and stronger/physical while Q was a bit faster.

You guys are joking about not getting the Jordan/NKOTB reference, right?

And I don't see much similarity between Little & Q. Little, unlike Braylon or Q, did not have a dropsy rep coming out of college. Concentration drops are a common young receiver problem, and I'd think especially excusable for a guy who hadn't played football the year before. If it continues, I get the comps to WRs who've driven us crazy in the past, but it's too early for that. And, though he didn't show it very often in 2011, he should be a far superior YAXer.

Hard to drop a lot of passes in college from the dorm room.

Lots of other stuff to drop in there, but not passes.

Ugh... I meant in terms of what Little brings physically. He and Q similar as to size and build. They bit remind me of Reggie Langhorne. I think Q was bit more deep threat but both bigger, more physical guys.

Oh... And I'm okay if guys wanna shake their heads or make fun of my 'NKOTB' ignorance. Seriously. Y'all go ahead ;-) ;) :wink:

Enjoyed his take as an ex-player. Agree with some of his positions but the fans not caring about the players is a real stretch.

We don't care about average or below average players. Hell, the second you make some sembleance of an impact by winning, they are ready to erect statues and dedicate sandwiches and songs in your honor.

Q's just coming from a different time in this team's era. Sad thing is, imagine if he was here the past 5 years. What type of viewpoint would he have now. Hell, I look back at a couple of his years and I think those have been the glory days since '99.

Good read.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

The reason the Stillrz are worshipped is because they win. It was the same way here in the KK days and the late 80's, Same way with the late-90's Tribe.

Q has to recognize. He just wasn't here.
