I don't think much of it. I certainly don't remember it at the time. Would the Rams have known what to do with the extra picks anyway? And you're probably right about taking Chris Long at No. 2 overall. But he did have 41 1/2 sacks over a four-year period. That's excellent production. Probably should've made a couple of Pro Bowls over that stretch. He was a pretty good player.
The impression I get is that Randy Moss wasn't nearly the headache in that sense as Terrell Owens. Part of being a Hall of Fame player is being a great teammate. Three teams had their fill of TO to the point where they got rid of him. That has to be taken into consideration. Judging a player just by looking at the numbers isn't the way to go. In fact, it's overly simplistic. And this has nothing to do with off-the-field issues like Lewis _ there is no baseball-like character clause guideline for pro football voters. With TO, we're talking about how he was on the field, in the huddle, on game-day. But let's look at the bigger picture. Every year, Hall voters are trying to funnel 15 finalists into five slots. That's tough to do. TO has had to wait two years. Both Lynn Swann and John Stallworth had to wait much longer. So I don't get all the whining by TO himself and TO backers. He'll get in, just not on his timetable. Personally, I think Isaac Bruce deserves to go on in before TO. Where's the outcry for Isaac? Oh, that's right. Isaac wasn't a self-promoter, diva, or whiner.
I would think that might be a possibility. But in so many words, he kind of indicated at the Super Bowl that he still wanted to play.
Wow, that's cold. Still stuck on the haircut thing, are we?
He certainly has more experience and more of a resume at this point.
I think they're contenders. I can't see Ryan going into a Cam Newton-like slump, and I don't see the Falcons stuck with basically no proven talent at cornerback to open the season. Of course, if anyone is going to have a Super Bowl hangover after a tough loss, this would be it.
No. From everything I can tell it was just sports talk radio shtick.
Yeah, I hear you. But there aren't many games like in the NFL. And as the Super Bowl showed, most teams never feel like they're never really out of a game.
All good in theory. But Davis isn't selling.
I appreciate the invite. But you run with a pretty wild pack. I'm getting a little too old for that. Always good to hear from you.
There's no doubt in my mind.
And that's why his fellow owners love him. He's helped show them the way.
I don't think there is one.
To me the Romo health would be a deal -breaker, unless Jerry Jones' asking price is cheap. And none of us expect that to be the case. And I say all this without knowing the cap ramifications of picking up Romo. That could be an issue.
I wouldn't go as far as saying the league didn't want to be in St. Louis. But they were lukewarm about the market. As a reader aptly suggested to me many months ago, St. Louis was viewed as collateral damage to get a franchise and a palace of a stadium built in LA.
That's a lot of money too spend for 10 years.
I don't think he has any business interests or business acumen outside of owning the Raiders. And although things currently look good in terms of the on-the-field product, they haven't exactly been a raging success since he took over as owner.
Yeah, even Quinn conceded that the Falcons' defense may have run out of gas late.
It is difficult to see a Chiefs preseason game drawing well here.
