This article is well written and thoughtful and should really resonate with all sports fans. I was particularly taken aback by his comment, "I was born in this dirt." I was raised in a pretty bad neighborhood, too, and I would hate for anyone to judge me because it.

On StubHub, the LSU side consists of section 130 to 140 plus 101 to 106 or thereabouts. I'm only listing the bottom sections because tickets are so cheap. On this board, people are selling sections 107 and 108, which are endzone seats nearer to the Clemson side.

I drafted Andre Roberts and started him this week because of the Hakeem Nicks injury. Nicks is still uncertain and Roberts plays on Thursday.
229 yards and 4 TDs so far. Is it time to make him a starter?

I thought with Maclin out that Jackson would explode. Instead, he's dropping TD passes and getting benched. I know he's a head case, but I thought he'd be performing with his contract on the line.
Is it time for him to ride the pine? ...

I didn't see the game. He has an injury cross next to his name on CBS. This is critical. I droppped Bradford and picked up Kolb because I need an upright QB for week 9 when Stafford is off.
I need an injury update quick.

Cutler was on fire at the start of the season, then the Giants game and he's been off track since.
He's got a tough match up this week, too.
Is it time to replace Cutler even if the alternative is not all that great?
My back up is Palmer. The wavier wire is at the bottom of the barrel (e...

After watching that debacle they tried to pass off as a football game last night, I have grave concerns. Putting aside the suicide watch that was implemented after Cutler's negative points snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, there are other issues to worry about.

I hear that Ahmad Bradshaw isn't practing; Jacobs says he'll play. Denver is not the best at run defense (not the worst either, I know). Jacobs has been such a disappointment this year. Even with his TD last week, his yardage total was paltry. With the short week and Bradshaw gimpy is this the w...

I can't believe there's no thread discussing Sunday's emergence of the 49ers. I know Houston's defense sometimes makes mediocre teams look good, but there's no ignoring Smith numbers--the guy only played one half, Crabtree's 56 on 5 catches, and Davis's 3 TDs.
So what do you think about:
