That's a fact.
Here's another fact: You can't go very far if you win on the road...especially when you're playing the damn Browns. ...

[quote]I'd say that Davis is the 3rd most likely to win MVP[/quote]
Don't think so. Everyone is hyper about AD's leap in skills and the world is getting to see it first hand. However, as many talking heads have pointed out, AD has to show he can carry a team deep into the playoffs in order to be ...

Evidently! It's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and they go for $1,500 to $2,000.00.
I know these things because I'm the proud father of a daughter who talked me into buying one of these little bastards.

[quote]just calling the obvious homerism and delusion in this thread[/quote]
This is a Saints board; one would have to be an idiot to expect folks here not to argue in favor of the Saints and exhibit a little "homerism". What a douche bag!

[quote]But it is obvious there is no dropoff in Seattle. So 13-3 seems like a safe bet. Which means we need 14-2 to guarantee homefield, which is the point of the thread.............[/quote]
Hey Nostradamus, they still have 15 games left and anything can happen.

[quote]I'm not so sure of this. I don't think there is some big systemic problem that needs fixing.[/quote]
The system is broken. The fact that only a few teams take advantage of the flawed aspects of the draft doesn't make it a functional process.
I do like the idea of putting some type of l...

[quote]Jus have a tournament with non playoff teams lose and you out [/quote]
The concept of the draft is to help weak teams get stronger. So, you want to help the strongest teams among the non playoff teams to get the best picks. OK.
The system is definitely broken...but this is hardly a fix....

[quote]Would have been nice if he would have just let him go originally, would have been easier to land somewhere else.
This wasn't an accident; it was calculated to give the team the best chance to get him back to put on the PS. I have my doubts whether he'll make it there, or stay the...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: A Davis unsung leader of Team USA - adono on 9/1/14 at 7:06 am|
Yesterday's game against Turkey was a tale of two halves. AD was very passive the first half; he stayed away from the rim on both sides of the court and looked very uncomfortable against the zone. When the second half started, Davis looked like a different player...even getting vocal at the refs at ...

I'm not 100% sure but wouldn't we need a roster exemption to go to 753 players?

[quote]I can agree with that. Seems like CSP already knows what he has with McCown and was trying to find out about Griffin
I have to admit that the move could be interpreted a few ways. I kinda lean towards the school of though that McCown wrapped up the #2 spot....

[quote]Griffin seemed like an obvious #2 from the first 3 games.
IMO Griffin didn't look that good last week. He followed that up with a very weak performance last night. The confidence he showed in the first 2 games has given way to a typical second year QB...very jittery in the pocket...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Final 53 Roster Prediction(and PS) - adono on 8/29/14 at 9:42 am|
A few observations:
This roster is too thin on the left side of the OL. Who on this roster has the experience and ability to move to the left side, if one of those guys goes down?
I don't think we keep 3 NTs.
There's a great chance we keep 6 Safeties because of RRyans defensive schemes(Ba...

[quote]Griffin will clear waivers and go to the practice squad. [/quote]
I hope you're right...but I don't think so.
I agree with Sid; I think Payton goes with McCown. When in doubt, go with experience. Griffin has been regressing the last few weeks and doesn't look very comfortable in the poc...

Isn't that the truth. My daughter just called to tell me she picked up 2 tickets in Section 142 Row 12 for $40.00 a piece (face value well over $350.00 each). Crazy!...
