Thanks for posting. Mike D's analysis is among the best available, IMO. It's great that he's from Louisiana and therefore specializes in both general and area-specific knowledge.
Thought his comments regarding mobile QBs and how they impact the modern game were particularly sharp. ...

No question, it'll be a disappointment.
Best team does not win the title every year, but even so I'd be very disappointed if LSU didn't at least make a title game appearance (assume they win a playoff game if they make the cut)....

Clearly a money grab, be the focus on where he lined up or how he produced compared to TEs historically.
Take the 2006 season, for example. There were 314 players total who had one or more rushing attempts during the season.
Of those players, mostly RBs, Mike Vick finished 21st (or top 10 perc...

It can’t hurt that he’s extra-motivated, but I don’t see how that will make a huge difference this season.
Best we can tell, he’s been a hard worker and a solid teammate, so it’s not motivation or preparation that’s held him back so far. The guy doesn’t have that elusive “it” factor—when a big pl...

Then you're wrong. Bert Jones is the answer. Not his fault he played in a run-heavy era and for a coach who swore by a two-QB rotation.
