    looks like the Lombardi will be in your neighborhood.

    Ha! PFF lists Adrian Peterson and #38.

    Sports on Earth is very respectable in its assessments. Specials teams unit at #2 is good. I like them better than Balt, but I am bias. Ranking of the O line was very accurate as a bottom five. Not like some idiotic report I read the other week having them as the 7th best…. SMH. LOL I had to do that…. Also this article on SOE was cool ranking the Hawks Secondary as a top five of all time.

    The bit about Bob Sh*tsitt pulling what he did on Largent and then on Rice tells you plenty about him.

  5. This truly is the deadest of dead times for the NFL. We have nothing to get excited about other than Jerry Rice wearing #80 for 11 games before retiring. Oh, what a horrible scam that was….yawn. SMH!

    Yes Todd I am following the CFL!

    It’s a fun game. It took me some time to get used to it when I immigrated 14 years ago but I like it now.

    Helps that my son plays the Canadian game and I’ve been coaching it for the past 5 years.

    Only problem is I’m a Roughrider fan living in Stampeder country.

    Yawwwwwwnnnn…will somebody wake me when training camp begins, please? I swear every year the last month of waiting for the season to start goes by at a snails pace….at least it’s sunny and time can be occupied with outdoor fun. :)

    I don’t want to sleep from now to training camp. I want some input, and I want it now!

    This would be a great time for us non X and O guys to be coached up on what the hell a LEO is and how’s that different than a blitzing LB.

    When RW runs the read option, what does he read and what’s the option?

    The Pro game is more complicated now than HS football was 50 years ago. When I watch a game on TV, what should I be staring at? I’m thinking the O-Line, but what do I know?

    And what does smh mean? Sorry. I’m not up to speed on all of the new abbreviations.

  12. smh = shake my head
