    Why do border collies run in circles? Lots of energy.
    But they are damn good at what they do.

    Forget about that one. I'll concede that :p

    Although Ocarina of Time was right up there too.

    Maybe it helps prevent him from jumping offsides. I don't think he had one today.

    Easley just has a lot of fun playing football.

    I am pretty sure that he will be on some highlight shows this week for his barrel roll (actually it is more of a bellyroll, but so what?) among other things. I expect he keeps his teammates loose and energized while he is at it.

    Sadly, NFL coaches will probably suck the fun out of him.

    Once in a generation, an athlete comes along that redefines his sport. Dick Fosbury gave us the Fosbury Flop. Dominique Easley gives us the Easley Barrel Roll. Not sure what purpose it serves, but it's fun to watch. Now we need to get the whole defensive line to do it simultaneously. The offensive linemen will have their minds blown.

    Agree a highly stylized shift. I though the defense created some excellent plays from its shifting yesterday. In the first quarter the fumble created by Fowler on the Tennessee handoff was one of those plays. If I recall correctly initial lineup looked like a 3 man front with Fowler as a linebacker when play started Fowler had moved up towards the line and shot to the handoff point. A huge play when we needed it. Someone looking at the game again might see other great shifts by the defense.

    No offense will catch him on his back, he's too quick plus he's rolling to where the online is not. He's going to time it right eventually though and roll himself into a gap and absolutely kill a quarterback.

    It's to say "I can do this but can you do that?" Maybe cause them to flinch?

    His exuberance is infectious. The D is playing with an intensity that gets the blood flowing! I have said this for years, as much as I like a beautiful pass or a long run, a vicious defense makes me feel that visceral animal that football is supposed to bring out.

    Barrel roll B*!ches!

    Speaking of DLinemen, this may have been brought up, but Fowler's tackle-forced fumble-recovery was reminiscent of Clowney's play against Michigan. Not the hit, but the explosion off the ball and the fumble recovery. We got monsters on the Dline.

    As long as he keeps playing the way he does it is fine with me.
