My NFL interest has been waning for years, and this is a big part of it.  I just can't come up with any way for it to not have serious long term effects.  Of course, there's a lot of other issues and bagmen like billionaire owners are playing their part.

It's just hard to enjoy it knowing the issues that are swept under the rug.

We all want a 5* players, but history suggests they're not coming here.  If they're not local and have ties to the team, we don't have the bagmen system or name brand to pull them.

The one nice thing about breaking it down like you did, is that even the hockey style line changes don't make me cringe.    There's weakness, sure, but it's not a complete dropoff (with the assumption that Pemsl is healthy and PMac and Toussaint are able to play right away)

If we could sweep a series, we'd be dangerous.

Still, that was a huge series.  Probably can't catch Michigan, but that 2 seed would be nice to have

oh man, that would be brutal, especially because you KNOW he's going to go off against Iowa.

Definitely hoping Hock and Fant go in round 1, just to say it happened.

Beyond that, the more names get called the better, and if they're not called, I hope their agents get them free agent deals.

Worse than that, he's not a decoy, he's a signal beacon.

If he's on the field, he's not getting the ball, I don't know what the odds of the play being a run are, but I'd guess they were high.  I don't suppose somebody has already looked at the numbers for last year with personnel groups.  My gut feeling is that he was another example of telegraphing play calls.
