@a57seMau Maus. One's innards are expected to turn to jelly at the mere sight of such fearsome race warriors. They're here to save the NFL from such evils as "tokenism" and the apparently voluntary retirement of Tony Dungy.

@burr36Any geek can coach, but it takes talent to play. As well, as a rule, it's not the best players who make the best coaches. Plus, when most of these guys were coming into the coaching ranks, there was a much higher percentage of white players. (Most HC's have been at it for 20-30 years.) Finally, the percentage of black jocks who blow off the schooling part of HS and college is depressingly high. At the NFL level, it isn't any longer possible to fake it until you make it, not in coaching or administration.

@thesteelersnatWhy stop with THOSE comparisons? Add this one:
Bell, 3.4 YPC
Bernard, 4.2 YPC
Ellington. 5.7 YPC

There are many names for people who are fans of schools which they didn't attend. One of them is Southerners. Another is Buckeyes. Come to that, I grew up rooting for one Big 10 school and then attended another, while my first cousin was starting for the second school. When my first team came to my new campus, I wore THEIR colors to work that day, in my residence hall cafeteria.
I've little doubt that Herbie takes the L.A. approach to life, though. Anything to fit in.

@Schantzman87Not to mention the absence of Larry Warford. Lots of O-linemen here, of only one of whom it could be said that he played as well as did Larry. Just look at the effect that he had on Dom Raiola's play, FGS! Warford wasn't just a good OG, he was top-5 in the entire league.

@aaallisondawn@AceRHPDonKellyRi-i-ight.... Because, when guys cheat on their wives, they're pond scum. Whereas, when girls cheat on their guys--"in house", so to speak--they surely MUST have done "something" to deserve it. LOL

@AlexPutt02@HOVGIt's a stripper name. Not everyone's experiences with strippers were as good as yours, perhaps.
Not a chance that Marty Mayhew would take a CB, not named Peterson, this high. It'd still be Ziggy.
It's nice to see the love for the Lions' picks this year. They really are an outstanding bunch. Add in Fauria and LaWaddle, both CFA, and this is the sort of class that makes champions. What a pity that Schwartz lacks the flexibility of mind to see when he needs to change course. A man's virtues are often his undoing. Undone by his stubbornness.

@ChrisTrapasso@CharlieFoxtrotWith the exceptions of abstract mathematicians, theoretical physicists, and a handful of chemists and materials scientists, hindsight is how the rest of us navigate our world, 24 x 365. "Experience is the best teacher."
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Fans have no business criticizing play-calling in the NFL
Hmm. Okay, maybe this is how y'all do it, but not me. For instance, during yesterday's Giants-Lions game, Q4, Lions 3rd and short. I called the play, just as I had the prior week, TWICE. Stafford, short, between the hashes, INTERCEPTION!
Why did I know this? Because a season's worth of futility taught me that THE OTHER TEAM ALSO KNOWS THIS. Lions OC Scott Linehan's calls? HC Jim Schwartz's inattention to detail? Staff_9's habit of shoving his head thoroughly up his backside for stretches of (often crucial) time? All of the above?
Who GAFF?! It's my right to bitch about what should be obvious to this team. Anyone who thinks otherwise can and should take a long walk off a short pier.
@RBooey @CUbsfan The only reason that you think that your argument holds any merit at all lies in the fact of your innumeracy. I'd take the time to explain exactly why what you've written is poppycock, but why bother? I'd make better use of my time preaching abstinence in the Castro.

Colin Cowherd is a vicious gossip, nothing more. Were he more, he wouldn't have felt the need to stoop so low, so as to gin up his ratings. The man's tongue should be torn from his mouth and fed to pigs.
Interesting enough, but I would like to see an analysis of the ENTIRE rookie class. For my money, Larry Warford has been the best of them so far.

Those two guys out of OKST were pretty special, particularly #20.

Like Matt Millen, he knows a lot about football, which doesn't mean that he knows how to do the other fellows job.
@greg gabriel I don't think Holmgren is much inclined to introspection. Were he so, he surely would have asked himself by now if he mightn't have been a bit hasty leaving GB in a fit of pique because Ron Wolf wouldn't allow him to control Personnel.
This particular foolishness has been mainstream in many inner cities in America for at least two full generations. Awfully swell of these gentlemen to share their "culture" with the wider community. Let this be a lesson to the skeptics of the benefits of diversity. I'm quite certain that his new neighbors must be thrilled with his fresh new ways. Surely they'll come to know the joy experienced by many a Mother in places like Detroit and Compton, laying out their small children in their Sunday best, as all their friends pay their respects.

@rotunder I agree. So, which of three things is it? (1) He's jammed himself up extra hard, making him desperate for cash. (2) He's got an undisclosed physical condition, which would impact his market value. (3) He's got an idiot for an agent/client.

@SwamiSays Okay, I'll buy that idea, if and only if his therapist is that "dog whisperer" fellow. You can't fix stupid, but maybe it can be trained to come to heel.
On second thought, when it comes to WR's, perhaps a whip and a chair might be more effective.
