  1. Next year, you mean? Or you think they cut him this year?
  2. Boswell's got at least 10 points (Yahoo scoring) in each of his last six games. No way I'm benching him in the finals.
  3. Good. I don't know why we have to have the attitude of "HOF QB or bust." Given this franchise's recent history, a consistent, slightly-above-average QB is worth his weight in gold. Letting this guy walk and starting over seems like insanity to me.
  4. This has to bump him over Hightower for me, though it could probably still go either way. Shoelace and West in the semis. God help us.
  5. Was planning to just roll with Santos, but this thread convinced me to drop him for Boswell at the last minute. 13 more points for it, which won me my playoff game. <3 this board.
  6. Terry Bradshaw on the Fox postgame show: "For any young person out there, Peterson is about the best role model you can have, in terms of something like overcoming an ACL injury."
  7. Feels bad man. I always liked him as a person, and he was a really special player. This Skins fan is sending thoughts and prayers to him and to you guys.
  8. Tough break on the drop, but very encouraging start I think. 5 touches on his first 5 snaps played, right?
  9. but will they even use him with this game pretty much out of reach? They were still using him on that last drive.
  10. 6 bench spots in Yahoo standard, but mine's a 14-teamer so it doesn't hurt as much keeping him around.
  11. Not sure I want to wait until Sunday to count on him again when the alternatives are Lacy and Asiata tomorrow night. Think I'm gonna play the Thursday lottery and start those two unless we hear some good news tomorrow.
  12. That's the way I see it too. These guys have a very finite amount of time to make their money in this league. Suspending them and then finding out that they were innocent is a problem for the teams. Not saying he's innocent. I have no idea which is why I'm in this thread and not the other. Yes. I would say legal ramifications are a HUGE factor in the decision making process of the Vikings, but mostly for the NFL. Our legal system is a complicated creature and often do not on its face reflect the moral standards of many in our society. If the public is dumbfounded at how a lady can be awarded millions from McDonald's for making their coffee too hot, they will be equally be dumbfounded when Adrian Peterson plays out the rest of this season with no suspension. Not saying that is what will happen, but this does weigh in heavily counter to public sentiment. I talked to a lawyer about that once and he said there was a lot of misinformation out there about that turning it into a kind of fish tale, and by the end had it sounding very reasonable. of course, he was a lawyer. Yea AKAIK the lady ended up extremely severe burns that required multiple skin grafts. But just goes to show that a little tidbit of information construed by the public eye does not necessarily equal what happened in a courtroom. Watch "Hot Coffee" on Netflix. /offtopicsry
  13. Picked him up just so I can stop refreshing this thread.
  14. No one cares if you are a colts fan. Why do people always say this? Brainstorm for a second and see if you can come up with a couple reasons.

  16. The courts love arbitration and other ADR options, because it cuts down on judges' insane workload. There's a strong policy against interfering with arbitration decisions. And for a preliminary injunction, Gordon would have to convince a judge that he's likely to succeed on the merits. I'd be surprised if they file a lawsuit, and shocked if they actually get a preliminary injunction.
  17. 0.4/reception Thanks for answering I think that is giving me incorrect rankings. it is a 2 pt bonus for every 5 receptions, not per reception. What's the practical difference?
  18. This isn't how lawyers decide whether to take cases.
  19. I think the key is that he tore the tendon. What I read is that they actually clip the tendon in the surgery, so he basically did the doctors' work for them and potentially shaved weeks off his recovery in the process. That's pretty boss, actually. I'll keep him until he gets injured again.
