I haven't read the whole thread, but my opinion is not to trade Drew. You don't try to change your most important position for the future at a time when you have what many consider the most talented saints roster ever right now. Drew is already a HOFer who can win on the biggest stages, and Luck whi...

Sorry for the long post but,
Only 5 teams on the schedule this year that can match LSU in both talent and coaching:
1. Wisky (neutral site) - LSU's athleticism on D should slow the B10 style offense as usual, so it will come down to making big plays on offense. I think LSU will be explosive bu...

I think Mett was a better 3rd down QB and that is what usually separates QBs in the NFL, but as someone posted before JR was better in college. If Mett had one more year with the type of talent that will be across the oline protecting him he may have progressed and been considered better. Watching b...

About the antenna, I am confused. I see HD antennas in BB that can pick up signal from 65+ miles away for free 1080i HD channels that are broadcast in your area. Is this not true?...

It's not close, and if I had to pick one non-QB player to start a team with, it would be hard not to choose Peterson who I consider the best overall athlete in the league along with megatron. Peterson can effect the game at all three phases O, D and ST.
