By going to Taco Bell...I learned what “No más” means.

Taco, enchillada, you're learning.  Este burrito es muy caliente.  "this burrito is very hot."  

Now Mr. Trivia Expert- let me tell you a little inside (spanish) joke- that I learned in my HS spanish class.  LOL, you're old enough to remember the original Lone Ranger TV show with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels.  Well, "Kimo sabe" is bad Indian spanish for "quien no sabe" (he) who does not know. "Tonto" is silly, or stupid- take your pick.  :D   Would never fly in this day of political correctness.....

My Dad's favorite words for all 5 of his kids and I'm pretty sure it was the first one he learned in language school in Caracas. We all thought it was funny coming from the "Lone Ranger" school of television Spanish as opposed to the "Cisco Kid" school. Now the funny thing is that the most intensive training I had in Spanish was the one year we lived in Caracas. We had a maid/cook with live-in quarters on the property as she came with the house to any new renters. She spoke zero English but very patiently taught us Spanish on a daily interactive basis with plenty of corrections. We also watched TV which had a lot of programs made in the U.S. that we had already seen, but they were dubbed in Spanish. So since we knew already what they were saying from prior viewing, it was easier to learn from the dubbed Spanish.

I'm certainly no expert...hell, I thought Taco Bell was a Mexican phone company! :)

So...you are saying that Kemo Sabe is basically calling someone "Dumbass" and calling someone Tonto is calling someone a "Dork"?

Then how do you explain this:

So...when John Dorsey called  Baker  "Kemosabe".....he really was making a disparaging comment about him?

Maybe John doesn't know much if any Spanish. Or you've got a lot to learn about the pro game kid. :) As a kid, I took that as a way you'd talk among friends, when all along it was an inside joke with the Ranger and his faithful Indian sidekick calling each other dumbasses.

I may have to pull up a few episodes for a trip down memory lane. My great grandmother used to love watching stuff like that, though she knew maybe 10 words of english.

You guys been watching the litany of Mayfield highlight videos on YouTube? I don't think I get tired of watching them, haha. Baker kind of got screwed in that Tampa Bay game. I forgot we were down 14 in the freaking 4th quarter, and Baker shook off a rather poor performance to lead us into OT, where we'd lose for a variety of reasons (Peppers fumble, Bucs' 59 effing yard FG). And don't forget that 40 yard run he had, lol. That was terrific. 

I can watch that football fly out of his hand all day, and I'm always amazed at how accurate his passes are and how receivers generally don't have to make adjustments to catch it. Not always of course, but going from Kizer to Baker is like listening to a game on radio, then watching the game on HD flat-screen. Something else that was truly amazing was how our receivers got better at catching the ball. I think we still ranked towards the bottom in drop rate, but our drops definitely got better in the 2nd half of the year. The one that haunts me is the ball bounced off Landry's helmet for a possible 95 yard TD. Immediately after the refs took away the TD from Peppers by blowing it dead. 

I was a little shocked to see Bob Wylie released, and part of Baker's success obviously came from the OL. The same can be said for the OL's success, as Baker has exceptional pocket feel and is adept at releasing the ball quickly when need be, but I was still shocked to see Wylie go when his unit obviously performed well. I've said it a few times, but the job Greg Robinson did for us simply cannot be understated. Taking over the job after an illness to Desmond Harrison, recovering from off-season injuries, and essentially trying to fill the void left by a legend Joe Thomas can't be easy. And while Greg wasn't perfect and definitely cost us with his unnecessary penalties, these are all things that can be coached.

Finding LT's ain't easy folks, and don't even look at the free agent class. Go back and watch all the highlights you can of our team if you don't have access to the games, and focus on Robinson. It's amazing to see his progression as the year went on. He's big, he's fast, he's very strong, and now his confidence is starting to show up. He's a free agent, but I'd guess he ain't going anywhere. Oh, and Baker likes him, which isn't the be-all, end-all, but it can't hurt!

Fined $10,026 for a “lewd gesture”, that’s over $5k for each testicle. . .

Watching some of his early pre-season stuff and finally some of the tape from the last couple games of the regular season - one of the things I drilled home was Baker's need to improve his ball fake.    Not only from the extension itself but the footwork coupled with it.      

 

Week 1 out the gate, from his first play.  The two handed grasp, the questionable footwork coming from under center, the poor extension...    the attention to detail is what makes good become great.    In this clip, Baker was nothing near great in that regard.

 

 

 

Last home game.     

Go to 1:31 for me and freeze it.    The footwork from his initial step has shortened, it's tighter, good plant and a quick, deliberate turn...  notice the one arm and full extension?  THAT is development right there.  THAT is how you sell a ball fake. The devil is in the details, my friends.  Baker can still change some things from his initial step, speed and shoulder drop.  But from pre-season to the final home game, you see improvement with the little things that help you become a better QB.

According to ESPN he appealed his fine to the NFL, and it was reduced to $1700. (which is still too much)

I don't want to be a grammar nazi but maybe someone is interested:

English native speakers usually make the same mistake: it is "este burrito ESTÁ muy caliente". We have two different verbs, ser and estar, in substitution of  the english to be. 

If I had to explain it simply, Ser defines a permanent quality, mostly used for people/animals or global attributes (a film is good, una película ES buena, a person who is good ES buena), whereas Estar defines a temporal quality/situation. This explaination is partial but may work for you.

The burrito is hot but it is not inherently hot, because it could be cold, so estar it is.

If I'm ill I'll say "ESTOY enfermo" because I'm not always ill, etc.

My way of learning the difference was whether something is temporary or permanent. Su cuca esta' muy caliente.- does not mean this a permanent stay for her.🤰😰😜

I realize that cuca may be just a Venezuelan term.😘

LOL, I forgot that little distinction, been a long time since I actually had to use my Spanish.....  

Sort of like Alaskan Eskimos have 20 different words for "snow".
