    Anyone else get sad watching the Saints,Chiefs, Rams

    I was sad because it was arena football. This is the travesty of roger badwill’s vision of what football should be. It is likely based on marketing studies of what gets the highest ratings and drives fantasy football interest. I wouldn’t get too over excited about either of those QBs. (1) Injuries will be part of their careers and (2) neither was reading defenses like Brady or Rogers. Regarding Wentz, it doesn’t seem like he is reading defenses as well as last year which is weird because he is a very smart QB. As many have pointed out, the loss of the two coaches who most closely interacted with him could be the cause. Doug needs to recognize this. Admittedly I might be a dinasour with regard to the sport but watch the A Football Life edition about Lynn Swann and John Stallworth. Watch how rough it was when they played the Raiders. Football as oppposed to footsieball that the game has become.

    And, Bradshaw, Montana, and Aikman would have shaken hands with Nick Foles after the game not like the classless model humping brat who fumbled the game away.

    You can't call PI on a hail mary with that many players around. Maybe if it were 1-on-1 or if Gronk was held down but every player has a right to try and catch the ball. If players all jump up to catch it, which they all did, then its just a bunch of players competing to catch the ball. Not PI
  7. This is a silly article and a non-normalized comparison. If you are going to compare things, you need to normalized them to a standard. Like you got a dollar and I got 9 quarters in a trade so I did better. You have to include the value of the positions, a high performing QB is worth more than 9 high performing players in other areas. Said another way, you think you could get any of these players in a trade (what you hope to achieve with the risk of trading for a top QB): Brady, Rogers, Newton, Roethlisberger, Wilson, Brees, Palmer or Luck in a trade where you said, take any 9 players (what you hope to achieve by gathering lots of round 1, 2,3 draft picks), 2 pro bowlers, 3 starters and 4 backups? The 9 players are a lot easier to assemble/replace than the 1 franchise QB.
  8. A "good" jury and bench might be somewhat less than receptive of your position given that millionaire entitled athletes were "incapacitating" off duty civil servants. You can make the argument but I've seen it lose when the injuries are disproportionate.
  9. Oh yeah, defending yourself and intent to injure are two different standards. Striking a person when they are down, even if they started it, and causing injury, like a broken orbital bone or fractured skull, moves into intent to injure territory. A drunk throwing a punch at you doesn't give you the right to maim them when they are down.
