Shut those fuckers out. Would have been a bummer otherwise.

Lol. Dolph just told Kirk that Lincoln Reilly was furious at the refs and KF responded with “i’ll bet he’s not mad at a cut block call”

I couldn’t see it. Was that bullshit? because most of those are bullshit.

Ross did cut him in the open field. Not sure what the rule is. Probably didn't need to attempt the block

I already like La Porta better than the other TE options. Keep him in there.

LaPorta was a nice surprise.
Zero surprise here, it was just a matter of time. He's one of the most talented and productive pass catching TEs to ever walk through these doors. His HS tape is just play after play that look exactly like he did today. The catch is that he played zero TE snaps before he arrived in IC this summer so he has been learning inline blocking from scratch.

And he seemingly had to agonize on whether to take a late Iowa offer or a MAC offer. It was one of those "How is this kid not a major recruit?" deals.

It's wild, his HS tape looks like a clone of Yelverton's and he holds 30+ offers. Not a small school kid either, LaPorta's HS has around 1k students.

Comparing anyone to Hockenson is unfair but it's really hard not to with him.

Chauncey was a bad man today.
He's been awesome the last 3 or 4 weeks. Even if he's not getting sacks he's getting a lot of pressure
