I mean this, it's not snark: Does this mean we're paying north of $5mil for at least 2yrs for a guy who plays the same position as the guy we traded Jerry Hughes for? And still have major pass rush issues? I mean, I'm not carrying a torch for Jerry, it's just hard to get as excited about this as, given that Robert Mathis himself approves, I'd lik to.

Not to mention obvious offensive PO on an early pick play or tbr personal fouls (facemask, blindsiding TY), which snuff out whatever sympathy that Grantland article about KC sports agony mighta stirred up in me.
I'm really sick of declining push notifications (iPad app used to be bad about displaying the comments, so I deleted it) and the GIFs are always trouble, but in general it's been fine for me. Only persistent issue is how long it takes for comments to load on iPad 2 and iPhone 5, but they aren't fatal flaws or anything. For what it's worth, I guess; not complaining about my favorite site, which is free. Just in case you wanted some feedback.
I've been calling for Pagano's head for awhile (I still blame his Jedi mind powers for the Richardson trade, and anyway, I don't like goattees), but Pep's been getting better all season. Serious kudos to both of them for being willing to make adjustments and toss their stubbornness out the window for the win. BTW, thank you for noting that nobody left when it was 38-10. Got a friend in Miami I need to start baiting again. Didn't want to wait for the NBA playoffs, and it's no fun anymore hassling my buddy the Knicks fan.
Best sports article I've read in a very long time. Thank you.

Dear Chuckstrong, these are some things you don't have to do: 1) run the ball; 2) live like a refugee

Speaking of refs, every time I used to hear that stat about Duane Brown not being called for holding in like 5 years, a part of me died a little bit. DFree shoulda had at least 20 more sacks but for uncalled holding against the Texans alone.
You just made me realize that I know the correct spelling of this name, and that makes me feel ... very confused about how closely. i follow the Colts.
If they'd only signed Josh Scobee, this would be a different postgame show.
I think I pulled my ACL and definitely gave myself cirrhosis.
So much like.

I think the key to the game was my official GF discovering that she has a crush on DBrown and renewing hers on Fleener. I texted her a pic of Werner hoping for a sack, but I think these things take time. I dunno; gotta ask my gri-gri consultant.
That was some rugby s**t right there.
Did I just hear that Avery tried to grudgef***k the Colts? This is really my kinda show.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!!! I'm buying a t-shirt for everyone I know for xmas. Then I'm keeping all teh shirts. And getting "Run the Ball" tattooed across my chest in gothic script, then--Bam!--"Stop the Run" across my shoulders, on my back. Coltstrong4eva

You know, reading this and the article on the NFLization of other leagues, I thought about that proposal to add 2 more games to the schedule. And while I think it's a bad idea for the game as it is, I'd really like to see a lot more football, but in a way that doesn't chew up bodies the way the NFL does. Maybe the point is to make the game less violent so the season can be longer. You know those guys who complain it's turning into flag football? Well, I'm not sanctimonious here—my favorite player to watch used to be Steve Atwater (mainly because Ronnie Lott was a Niner and my brother liked them so I had to hate them)—but maybe there's something there. Restructure the game somehow to make injuries less common and extended recovery time a bit less necessary. I don't know what that would mean. But Rugby's still a pretty hard-assed sport without the spectacular violence, and it has fewer stops in the action as well. Maybe the answer is reducing the padding, instead of increasingly legalistic and fine divisions of what hits are acceptable and when, which nobody really seems to understand (I mean, extremes like James Harrison and Brandon Merriweather are easy to see, but that's in the nature of extremes). Of course, if this resulted in moar Dan Dierdorf, I'd have to give up the game altogether, but it would be fun to watch Mark Schlereth's head explode and see if that actually managed to make him less articulate and coherent. We know it wouldn't affect Merril Hoge.

Just opened the Star and saw mention of the trade deadline looming. I didn't keep reading because I was afraid they'd lead with what I think is going on in Grigson's head: "Oh crap I still got all these draft picks I'ma lose if I don't use them by the deadline!! I will hide them in my goatee and use them next season. Yes, goatees are my strategic advantage. I will never trade you, goatee."
