    Anyone know where I can find the clip of Jim Garrett raving about how awesome Todd Lowber was going to be and then the scene where Wade Phillips was talking about him in a team meeting and was all "Yeah he's a good athlete but he isn't a football player"

    It was during Hard Knocks 2008.

    You knew this was my bat-signal, didn't you?

    Couldn't find the Garrett raving... only vids other than this one I could find have some seriously messed up audio. But this is Lowber getting cut and Phillips' comments at just before 17:00.

    2014=2009, 2015=2010?
