| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Hypothetical Future on Jimmy - bigjuice56 on 3/2/14 at 10:12 am|
The whole "He's a WR" thing is a ploy by his agent to get Graham more money than Gronk's recent contract. If Graham is viewed as a TE, he can't and won't get more than the 6 years, 54 million Gronk signed for. And he shouldn't get that because even though they're equals in the passing gam...

| More Sports Board|| re: Is re-seeding each round the best playoff format? - bigjuice56 on 1/5/14 at 8:12 pm|
A couple of things to ponder:
Does the NFL keep the re-seeding format when they eventually expand the playoffs to 14 teams?
Is re-seeding really fair to the #1 seed in the current format? Had Philly won, they would have played Carolina and Seattle would have gotten San Fran.
What I'd like to s...

Years back, I played one through a guy at work that knew a guy. Being young and dumb, I decided to pick 10 games because you still won money on 9 out of 10. Hit the first nine games - last game I took the over in a San Fran-KC game. Hit it by a point when Dante Hall ran a punt back for a TD with 2 m...

I still don't get this - you now have 3 backup outfielders (with Gattis playing some LF) and Pena to backup 3 infield positions. Couldn't we have got an equal return for Reed Johnson? I don't see how you give up on a 25 year old lefty power hitter like Francisco. ...

I've said this in a few other posts about realignment - I think Notre Dame could be a decent Pac-?? fit.

After the Cap One Bowl selects, the Cotton gets first pick from the West and the Outback gets first pick from the east. The Outback "could" choose LSU if A&M goes to the Cotton. However, the bowls do work together to some degree - so if Clemson is in the Chick Fil A Bowl, there's no way South Caroli...
