All of these guys have seen poor years on D when there is a talent deficit.
IMO, Chavis had one of his best years this year. That defense was depleted on the DL as bad as I've ever seen it. Mult...

Went this weekend. It was great. Service was top notch, and the food is nearly as good as the original.
Their oysters Rockefeller is my favorite dish of anywhere. I wont say the BR location is just as good, its close, but not the same IMO.

[quote]The key to stopping Auburn is stopping the run. If your DE's are smart and don't go flying towards the QB, and your LB's take good pursuit angles and use their head, then you can man to man their receivers all day. [/quote]

| Tiger Rant|| re: Auburn this Year - Are they overrated? - Bear Is Dead on 7/11/14 at 9:21 am|
I think theyre pretty good.
Quille Williams and Sammie Coates is a really good WR duo.
They have two super fast backs that should cover up the loss of Tre Mason.
Oline is very good IMO, not as good as LSU, but real solid for their system.
Marshall is an awesome running threat and should imp...

Your theory is correct, but there comes a point where the franchise is getting fleeced.
He's not worth $20.75Mil today. There are far more franchise QB's in the league today than 5 years ago. ...
