  1. This is the heart of it. Faced with finding out what happened when a three-time Super Bowl winning team was caught blatantly cheating in a way that would throw their wins into doubt the league buried it instead of revealing what they found. Now... why would they do that? Yep. To protect their supposed integrity and their golden boy Brady. The Pats homers in this and every thread on this subject are hilarious in their willful ignorance and abject refusal to accept that their team cheated like crazy to win those titles, and the only reason they got away with it in the end is because ole Roger was mortified by the idea of having to have Championships vacated and a resulting scandal that would irreparably harm the NFL. We're talking The Black Sox & The Patroits kind of legacy. But lets just pretend it's no big deal and they were only doing what everyone else did and sweep it under the rug. That's MUCH easier to swallow and the masses can continue to watch every Sunday in their usual ignorant bliss...especially the Pats fans. Do they really not see how unspecial they've been since they've been prevented from cheating?
  2. No. All he'd have to say is "throw it to x" whoever x happened to be. Or even quicker just say the last name. "Smith" or whoever. The guys upstairs can see the coverages better even before the ball is snapped. And what Flutie said was that they talked to him right up to the snap, rather than getting cut off 15 seconds into the play clock. Which means they could give him signals on how the D was moving right up to the snap of the ball - which would be pretty valuable info.
  3. as both a Lions and MSU homer I was insanely conflicted and stupidly ignored my gut screaming to put Leveon in and played Joique Bell at my flex instead. very very frustrating. But it's great to know he's 100% now and he's going to play ever week after the bye for sure. I suspected he was the best RB in this draft, and so far he looks like it. I think he's going to have a very nice career in Pittsburgh. And as someone who saw every carry of his in 3 years at MSU, you got only a taste of how versatile he is today. His agility for his size is off the charts. He'll never have top end speed, but he is powerful and quick and can make people miss in the open field, and he has soft hands to handle screens.
  4. FWIW: Drayton Florence had the same injury in Week 2 and was able to return to action for the first time today.
  5. you clearly missed Kirk Cousins carving up the Bears last night. 18/23 for 264 and 3 TDs (No INTs) and he looked poised and as NFL ready as any rookie this year. When all is said and Done, Luck and Cousins will be the two NFL QBs from this draft. Wilson is little more than Akili lite...who benefited greatly from an O line and stud RB in his one year at Wisconsin. he may hang around like wallace has, but that's about his ceiling.I don't think you watched many Wisconsin games if you think it was just that Oline and RB that made Wilson look that way.The guy was darn good.first of all, I was being pretty sarcastic there as I'm obviously a Spartan fan and was just having some fun. Yes, I saw plenty of Wilson at Wisconsin, and even NC State. He was a fantastic college QB, but I think ultimately the fact that he's 5'10" (if that, i've stood next to the guy, he's small) limits his potential. He may be the guy to break the rule, but there just isn't much of a precedent to expect him to succeed at this level. He benefited from a tremendous overall offense at UW, but he didn't really play any outstanding Ds other than MSU - and had picks in both games that seemed "uncharacteristic" - and then was stifled in the Rose Bowl when again up against elite competition. I have the utmost respect for what he did last year, and think he's a great guy and wish him the best, but having watched him all year I just don't see him having long term success in the NFL. The Preseason means very little to me in this and any other example as well. The Lions went 4-0 in 2008...how'd that season go?

  7. that's pretty ridiculous. definitely more Fitz than Megatron to me though...amazing control.
  8. Hey! Go #### yourself! Happy Holidays!

  9. Please refrain from posting. Thank you.

  10. Lord knows i've posted some stupid crap here, but eesh. i keep staying away from this but it keeps being on the first page and every few days I peek in to see if there's any actual worthwhile information. nope....just page after page of idiotic moranic BMI debating about a rookie who hasn't played yet. The kid is fast, he's pretty good, but time will tell how many carries he can get with Lendale going #1. that's it. [/thread]
  11. now don't go jumping to conclusions....hey, wouldn't it be neat if you had a matt, and put some conclusions on it, so like when you had a question you could jump to a conclusion on the matt? that's an awesome idea, i will sell them to you all and donate everything to the Red Cross!!
