He didn't have a snowball's chance in hell to stick here.
Did he stand out in the parking lot with a cardboard sign

He was even better at finding out that Price was the stooge in Stalag 17.

So he’s a OG, and a OT in a desperate situation?

+1. Him, Faye Dunaway, and Duvall were outstanding in this classic movie.

If they move, kill 'em. Talk about an OL with a nasty attitude.

You're Eli Manning. You used to be big.

I AM big. It's the team that got small.

What melody do you sing that to?
interesting to see if Lalos catches on with Judge or Graham

Classic movie but they severly downplayed how brutal POWS were treated by the Japanese in WW2
Maybe for the sake of good relations that was intentional

I regret to say this….

Usually I get even a little excited and hopeful when we sign a free agent…..until today. Bill Holden doesn’t arouse that kind of passion I’m looking for. Sorry….

OL Coach Bobby Johnson knows him (sort of) from the Colts  
Big Blue Blogger : 8/5/2022 3:08 pm : link
Might not remember him, though. Holden lasted less than two weeks on the practice squad when Johnson was there, in 2018. Holden had a longer stint in Indy two years later, but Johnson was no longer around.

It appears Holden was coached by everyone in the NFL.

That tells me he's in demand! ;>)
I remember Lalos

involved in at least a couple turnovers in limited regular season action. Must have been more luck than ability?

Sorry to see him go.... Always rooting for the local guys. Hope he catches on somewhere, but if not not, the BA in Economics from Dartmouth will likely come in handy in his future.

body. I'd be surprised if he's on the initial 53. As Eric noted, he's already played for tons of teams in his short career and nobody wanted to keep him.

jokes about the "Bill Holden drinking helmet" along the lines of how it would have been a great idea, considering how he died.
Eric. How to explain the many teams he's played for:

Holden is the litmus test for edge rushers & left ends.
If they can't beat him in practice, cut them.

In "Licorice Pizza," Sean Penn does an amazing riff on William Holden (by another name).

Bradley Cooper even better playing Jon Peters as a sybaritic lunatic. And they got to use Jon Peters' name. He thought it was funny. He's right. Cooper would have been a deserving supporting actor nominee.
