  1. I don't drink anymore... but I dam sure don't drink any less.
  2. I was thrilled to hear we had signed him and he's way exceeded my expectations as a play-maker, a leader, a devoted team guy and a class act on and off the field. He's one of the reasons this team has an excellent chance of winning a SB or two in the next three years.
  3. Agree. If they get the ball to him, he'll do good things with it, just like this year. He actually puts as much pressure on a defense as Julio or Sanu.
  4. Same here, brother. My therapist is Jack Daniels Old No. 7, and with his able assistance things have already improved so much, I've given myself the rest of the day off to celebrate. But as to crux of the matter, as for who I Iike at #31, I like whoever TD, Quinn and Pioli like at #31. The way they've been drafting, I've got a peaceful easy feeling. Of course it's maybe cause I'm already standing on the ground.
  5. ...and it will turn out to be somebody that is fast, physical and knows how to get to the QB.
  6. He not only says it, he has the track history of making moves to get the players he wants. I have no doubt this was a "we're (always) open for business" statement. Really always liked TD's aggressive style on draft day. I certainly didn't agree with all his moves, but the block-buster trade up to get Julio made perfect sense to me. Now that TD is working with Quinn and Pioli, the new drafting brain trust has really been clicking on all cylinders. Looking forward to seeing what we do when we get on the clock. We're so close, this draft could well be the one that fills those last couple of holes and wins us that first Lombardi Trophy.
  7. Thanks for this background story, Pape. It really did shed a lot of light on Aaron Hernandez' family, his relationship with his brother...and that fatal weakness he exhibited early on for choosing the wrong friends. Maybe it just finally all sank in after the most recent trial; not only what he'd done to himself, but what he'd done to his family and the families of the dead men who'd crossed his path. Too much shame, too much guilt, nothing to look forward to except....some day dying in prison. So, might as well get it over with and avoid further torment.
  8. Agree. NFL officiating is a joke, except for the fact the NFL is a multi-billion dollar corporation, so the sorry officiating is a travesty, an insult to the fans that also seriously damages the credibility of "professional" football. Having full time officials is the least they can do to try to get a handle on the situation and that should have been done decades ago. As far as putting the lid on TD celebrations, that seems to be just another example of the league's political correctness philosophy being taken to a whole new level of absurdity. But, if it keeps Camilla from doing the Dab, I have to admit I'm in favor.
  9. That's the trauma and the heartbreak for us fans, to see us start to lose some of the emerging stars because of the salary cap. But the thing you have to like and put your faith in is the ability of your HC and FO to come up with new guys in the later rounds or FA that can take their place and keep up the same level of productivity, like the Patriots. And we seem to have the HC and FO to get the job done.
  10. So to keep Short, the Panthers had to take it in the shorts money-wise?
  11. I believe Willis has the maturity and the awareness to succeed in the NFL wherever he lands. I would definitely love to see him land here, but I think he'll be gone before we pick in the second.
  12. Just not worth the price for a team like the Falcons which is in such a good situation at cb. Then you add in the behavior issues with his sideline rebellion, I wouldn't touch him with a 10-foot pole.
  13. I was extremely upset with the PI calls but I didn't call for his head. I think I merely suggested waterboarding and a huge fine per each occurrence.
  14. I'm thinking more like at least two Lombardi Trophies in the next 3 years.
