This team looks about 10 times better than I was expecting. I have to make an effort to curb my enthusiasm to keep myself from using the P word. Maybe in two more weeks.

Because there have actually been 33 seasons. 34 if you count the specials year. 35 if you count the TV movie. (Then there's Dimensions in Time, which if anything should count as a negative...

Why thank you, kind sir.
Naturally, given such fascinating material, I just had to acquire a copy of my very own. And so, after laying down $12 of my own money ($11.99 of which went to cover...
When I hear the term "safety" in connection to our DBs, I'm always reminded of Steve Martin's fork in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
'Course, the last...

Why, here he is right now - shooting off into outer space!

Hello again, everybody! It appears I've been away from you all for quite some time, thus depriving you of my infinite wisdom. But never fear, boys and girls - ol' BBQ is here to talk about the...

I have no idea what the future holds in store for us, draft-wise. But I'd be curious to see your plan to resolve all our positional needs in a single draft. When your task is as great as this one,...

Few things aren't a need for this team right now, Caine. And frankly, there will be other drafts. The Vikings drafted two receivers in this draft. We'll see how they work out.

I know. If you insist on naming yourself after him you could at least add a 1 to the end or something.

The same applies to cornerback or literally any other position. This barely even qualifies as an argument. Besides, the general consensus is that this draft is much thinner at O-line than it is at...

I'll grant you this point if and only if you can bring up quotes in support of this viewpoint. You've certainly expressed your preference for trading the pick far more vocally than the people who...

As for the broader issue, I would be happy if they drafted either Kalil or Claiborne. Both are excellent players who would help the team out a lot at a position of need. You could make a case for...

I see you're still at it. Would it be pointless to remind you once again that literally no one is saying this? People who think drafting Kalil is a good idea are in no sense advocating the idea...

No one is saying that. No one.
What they are saying is that Kalil would be a major help to him, and would do a lot of good to fixing a the second-worst unit on the team last year (over three...
Seattle decided their need was greater, and ponied up more money than Miami was willing to. The guy has played in two games - you have to hedge your bets a little when you're getting a guy with that...
Wow. I am amazed. This makes you MORE confident that TJ will be the starter than you were before? You're never going to quit, are you? No matter what happens, you will never give this up. Wow.

I started this dumb thread when I was still in high school. I'm 24 years old and this thread's still going. Granted, it's going very slowly, but it's still going.
I'm never going to amount to...
Not really all that relevant. Apart from the fact that one quarterback is being replaced by another, the two situations are very different. The Colts are an organization that has hit rock bottom...

Yes. Will I? No.
Well, okay, maybe I can show you the chorus and the first two verses. The lyrics have been translated into English from the tonal fart-based language which will be the lingua...
So, in summary, Spielman has chosen to rebuild the Vikings by completely ignoring all the gaping holes in their roster that no two or three top-quality drafts put together could completely fill and...
Really speaks volumes of the amount of faith the Seahawks have in T-Jack when they bring in a guy who has started two games in his professional career and pay him $26 million to take his job.
The Seahawks have signed QB Matt Flynn to a three-year, $26 million contract.
It appears Tarvaris Jackson's reign as starting quarterback will be just as short as most people expected it to be.

I'm a bit uneasy about signing a guy who's had two major injuries in the past year and a half to a five-year deal. At least less than half of it is guaranteed.
03-14-2012, 05:42 AM
Disappointing. You whiff on 100 percent of the moves you don't make. This team needs help however it can get it. You don't need to forsake free agency entirely. That's not how most successful...

It's good to be appreciated. When I take over the world, every day shall be Platypus Day. And everyone shall be required to sing a song in praise of how awesome I am, on pain of death. So says the...
