  1. Bell's goal is to get the biggest contract he can and he believes that he needs to minimize wear and tear on his body in order to accomplish that. Therein lies the dilemma. Right now, he's an unquestioned top 3 RB in the league. If he gets the team to limit his number of touches (a big if), let's say he ends up with 250 carries and 65 receptions and falls out of the Top 5 in the NFL in rushing yards. Are teams reluctant to give him the huge payday because they feel he's not a Top 3 or 5 talent any longer? Not to mention the continued potential blowback from some teammates and fans who feel that he's prioritizing himself over his team. It's a tricky calculation for him -- wanting to preserve his value and his body at the same time. That's why the safest bet is to come in for Week 11 when his legs will be much fresher than defensive players and his chances for putting up elite numbers are significantly higher. Each path has risk but if his sights are set completely on the biggest possible contract and the most guaranteed money, coming in after Week 10 likely gives him the best chance of accomplishing his goal.
  2. I actually think it'll be Rosen or Jackson. Higher ceiling for Jackson, higher floor for Rosen. But I think they're both better picks than Mayfield and Allen and likely Darnold, too.
  3. Not to mention the fact that the Rams will likely be playing ahead so often. I could see Gurley approaching 325 carries this year.
  4. Fascinating to see the Rams go all-in to this extent. I'm very curious to see how it plays out for them. Sometimes these things look better on paper and don't mesh on the field the way you expect they will, ala the Eagles a few years ago.
  5. I'm pretty shocked. I referred so many friends to Phenoms based on what an honest, reliable, and first-class organization it seemed to be. Wow.
  6. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82a994a3/article/police-dez-bryant-arrested-for-domestic-violence?campaign=Twitter_atl Bryant's quote: "I'm good, I'm good."
  7. @FG_Dolan: Domestic violence charge for Dez Bryant, as @MDoocy reports. Hoo boy. #Cowboys
  8. Sources confirm to @wfaachannel8 Dallas Cowboy Dez Bryant was arrested by DeSoto Police today. via @rlopezwfaa
  9. I don't see it unless he pulls a Warren Moon and ends up in the Top 5 or 10 in both career yards and career TD's. I also worry that he may not age well. He's already a statue back there and it's only going to get worse.
  10. they have been importing chefs from all over for competitions in the past. i don't see why it has to change now...75% were local this time if not far more. Bourdain/Ripert are sort of permanent one time appearances. Next year is west coast. Has to be.They've done San Francisco and LA, though. Very surprised they haven't done New York yet, aside from a couple of episodes at the end of the last one.
  11. I thought the whole episode felt a bit anti-climactic. Personally, I think that having the celebrity chefs serve as sous-chefs is sort of ridiculous if they're not allowed to give input or help the chefs conceptualize their dishes. What's the point? Just the novelty of it? It certainly seemed that Lisa beat Stephanie to me. Stephanie's 3rd course was the big hit of the night, but it seemed like Lisa's soup wasn't far behind, and she seemed to nail the dessert as well, and her first course was Ted Allen's favorite. Stephanie's dessert looked terrible -- I can't believe they didn't nail her for the presentation. Maybe they did and it got edited out. I've seen more appetizing-looking desserts at Denny's. I hope it tasted better than it looked. I'm not saying that I think Lisa should have won, but if you're going on that meal alone, it seemed like she was the strongest. On the whole, I think they need to come up a better twist for the finale next season than having Eric Ripert chop onions and garlic for the chefs.
  12. Another vote for Gail. Padma seems way too vacuous I'd say more pretentious than vacuous, but another vote for Gail all the same.
  13. she has kind of come alive with each season. the other judges have followed suit. they seem to have found their legs at last. say what you will about padma as a host, she is lightyears ahead of that season 1 stepford wife that was there before her.I really just meant that her boobs looked huge.I actually paused the DVR and stared. They looked tender and juicy and the presentation was fabulous. my fiance' even commented. I pretended to not notice just so I could rewind to get another look and agree with her.Ha! I can just hear it: You: "Oh really? I've never noticed." (sounding uninterested)Her: "Oh yeah, how could you not have noticed?"You: "I was so focused on the show."Her: "Hold on, I'll rewind and show you."You: "It's not necessary, I really don't care."Her: "Hold on, I'm rewinding!"You: "Well, if you insist..."
  14. I don't think you'd get many arguments on that one. He has a classic Napoleon complex. Didn't he say he was 5'4" at one point?
