This is more what youth group is like than actually church.
This is youth group
Wow makes me remember how much the FCA and Young Life crowds sucked
This guy's got Coot stink all over him. Hilarious that he's the one hamstringing Dushaun
"A Columbia, South Carolina native, Easterby lettered in basketball and golf at A.C. Flora High School and Newberry College and studied theology at Erskine College and Liberty University. He served as an operations intern with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the summer of 2004.
In 2005, while working as an academic tutor at the University of South Carolina, Easterby was hired by Dave Odom to serve as the "character coach" of Gamecocks men's basketball team, and worked extensively with Dawn Staley and the women's team.
After leaving South Carolina, Easterby served the Kansas City Chiefs as chaplain, where he ministered to the team following the murder-suicide of Jovan Belcher. Placekicker Ryan Succop, who attended South Carolina when Easterby was there, recommended him to Scott Pioli for the position.
Easterby was hired New England Patriots in 2013, in part to deal with the Aaron Hernandez crisis. Throughout his tenure, he was the only man in the league to hold a paid position of character development coach. He described his work as "to serve the players mentally, physically and help them as people”. He also helped the team with draft evaluations, helped orient new players, and held Bible studies and religious services. He grew close to Bill Belichick, and by his fourth year, the football operations staff reportedly reported to him. "
"What team in their right mind would want this psychopath??????!!!!!1"
He was hired by the Houston Texans in April, 2019, after they outbid the Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins for his services. Several members of the Patriots organization were reportedly furious and felt betrayed at Easterby's departure.
Seriously, is this guy a Coot mole looking to sabotage Houston Taters?
"He reportedly was a force behind the trade of wideout DeAndre Hopkins, saying “we need to move on from that person."
Yes. Also a belichik plant.
I just figured he was a coach at some point, but that hire is just amazingly stupid.
His resume is basically just "character coach".
He has dolphin teeth and looks like a creep.
You typically have to be awful for multiple generations like Cleveland, Detroit, and Buffalo before fans feel bad for you, but Houston is a fast riser lately
The SI article from December explains how he got there.
FCA might legit be one of my least favorite organizations on the planet. I'm disappointed to hear Dawn Staley "raves" about this POS
Recently? I think his tenure with her was a while ago. Although she posts Christian devotional bible verses every day they have a game
the article JGator posted mentions Staley raves about him, it was written in December 2020
He attended Dabo’s Christian Fantasyland for 3 years. Surely he can find a way to make it work with this youth pastor
i can confirm that FCA did indeed suck ass
Dabo may be a hyper religious nut in general, but he's not a hyper religious nut when it comes to fielding a team to win football games.
The more of this stuff I see the harder I cringe
just another evangelical while male being persecuted smdh
I wish he'd hang on a cross
Oh my fucking god
That's not just some cherry picked clip. He's embarrassing the entire video
i randomly clicked on that to 20:45 and he complains about food in europe and then does a weird accent
When I consider how much money this dufus is making, I get the rage hiccups.
That greatest champion “poem”
the amount of money belichick has made these scrubs that worked for him is amazing
The part I heard was a story about a kid getting hit by a mack truck because his friend couldn't throw a football accurately. The dad of the dead kid told the inaccurate child that he should spend the rest of his days telling people that he should have died instead.
Handcuffed, the "nawm sayn?" he always says is hurting me just as bad as the accent he puts on
He spent minutes detailing how someone gets crucified
Someone needs to let Mike know the competent son is running the actual McNair business. It’s literally impossible to lose money running an nfl team so putting the window licker in charge makes total sense by Bob before he died.
damn adam i know myself, along with presumably everyone else, am wondering if the cult leader who's chased off the franchise qb is remaking the franchise for the better. i have massive brain trauma so complicated situations like these are very difficult to grasp
equipment manager refuse to put a Bible verse on the helmet or something?
spoiler: It’s not
all players must wear WWJD bracelets
We can save so much money by replacing all rehab and therapeutic equipment with laying on hands
Dismissing an equipment manager is fucked up. That's a thankless job
So this is what it was like watching us from afar the last two decades? Damn.
it worked! what dysfunction? everything appears great
This feels worse than anything I’ve ever seen from a pro organization.
the browns were just genuinely incompetent. run of the mill stuff
the texans have been taken over by a cult leader. nothing else really compares to this
Cults can be fun though
The evidence seems to point to the single cult leader, but I don't see how it can be a guy who is less than 40, that never played football, who is a cringeworthy public speaker?
Fully expecting McNair to put ownership of the the team in Easterby’s Sunday collection plate at some point
More fun as a follower but you make more money as a leader.
that’s what makes it so much more interesting and bizarre
