Seems like every year this comes up. DeSean Smith and Jacory Washington are probably our best receiving threats on paper at the position. Allegedly Cameron likes to utilize TEs in the passing game. (hasn't yet at LSU however)...

Anytime I've changed out brakes I've always done a full job, pads, rotors and calipers. For the life of me can't find the calipers anywhere online this time. (except used ones on ebay) Think I'd be ok using the existing calipers?...

Help needed trying to understand this recipe It's an old family recipe that was passed down to me. I've used it before and it comes out fine.

Growing up my family always had Hellman's so that's what I used for a while Tried Blue Plate, it's just as good IMO but I can't really say better Recently tried Duke's as I've heard it's supposed to be some next level shite or something. It tastes different than Hellman's but not sure if it's ...View Topic - Replies (22)

| More Sports|| Dallas Cowboys O-Line next year - Powerman on 5/9/15 at 8:56 am|
I think this could be the best offensive line since the Jimmy Johnson days in Dallas. They already had a solid line last year and drafted 2 offensive tackles before they acquired Collins. If just one of those 3 tackles pans out to be an all pro caliber player early on they could be very difficult ...

I bought one a while back and still haven't used it. Mainly got it to make Creme Brulee just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've seen some sushi chefs use it to sear tuna and I assume it would be good for getting a good crust on a steak or maybe a ham glaze. Any other good uses for it?...View Topic - Replies (9)
