Substances probably stole a HOF career. He was that talented. His ridiculous 2013 season of 1,646 yards was done in 14 games. Was on pace for like 100/1900/11. Hope he gets the help he needs.An all-time What-If player; over 2400 yards in his first two seasons as a 21/22 year old catching passes primarily from Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell.
Unfortunately he is going to have to start to handle this on his own. His NFL career is likely over now. I hope he has good family, it’s going to be very dark days ahead for him. I wish him the best but not confident.Sad news. Still hoping he gets the help he obviously needs.
Well, I'd assume they tried it out in practice a few times and it looked pretty good.But, I do have to ask, as an aside: WTF was Carroll thinking about having him throw a pass? From what I can tell, he's never thrown one either professionally or in college ball.
If a freak injury comes up, maybe you say , "what if?" What if Orr, Namath had been rested instead of playing hurt as youngsters. But Josh Gordon? How many chances does he need for us to see this is what was always going to happen. Short of lovking him up and letting him out to play, this is who he is.An all-time What-If player; over 2400 yards in his first two seasons as a 21/22 year old catching passes primarily from Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell.
It's the reverse Gretzky! or Reverse Blair Macdonald.I maintain that catching 87 passes for 1646 yards and 9 touchdowns, while being thrown to by Brandon weeden and Jason campbell, while being drunk and high, is the most impressive athletic achievement in the history of humanity.
I'm not sure that's something we can really state definitively.Patriots cut him for reasons not related to substance abuse anyway.
Kind of a cold take...
