Nothing unexpected hear from coach, speaking at the “Match for Michael” event. He is going to stand up for the picks they made. Funny to hear him call the experts “hilarious”. I totally agree, as you have seen in my previous posts.

It’s nice to hear that Tim Tebow is in good shape, but it still doesn’t make me any more positive about the move.
