| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: What if- Jimmy Graham gets traded as well - higgsBoson on 3/7/14 at 6:33 pm|
I don't think Graham had too much affect on the recent cuts. Moore, Sproles, and Thomas are getting older and are dropping in production.
With our defense finally on track, we can afford to clean house and draft offense this year. ...

[quote]I know this rarely factors in but....he's likely one year away from a college degree. I don't know that he has an NBA game so it may serve him well to get his degree. [/quote]
He can always come back and get his degree in the offseason or if he doesnt make it in D-League or Euro. But i thi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Jarvis Landry Official 4.77 40 time and 28.5 Vertical - higgsBoson on 2/23/14 at 6:23 pm|
The good thing for Jarvis is that with the way press corners are becoming the thing in the NFL his toughness and ability to physically pull away from CBs will help him in the draft. That skill will be sought after by teams who are looking for that in a slot receiver. ...

Because there wasn't anything different about pre-2006 and post-2006 years.
I'd agree that he's pretty average. He's good at getting us under the ca...

Yeah I haven't heard of him getting in trouble, but apparently he has some bad influences they want him to get away from.
I can't blame parents for wanting...

[quote]Why come out now before the draft other than to get publicity and get talked about. [/quote]
He said it in the ESPN interview. Most scouts already knew, he knew it would come out, and he wanted to tell his story on his own terms. I think it shows maturity to come out instead of waiting fo...

I don't know if we could get that much for him, but I think we could get a first. And honestly, I wouldn't mind trading graham for a first. ...

Again I'm not a professional, but I think it's pretty rare to have arch windows below another set of windows.
The arches are there to send your eyes up and make the building look taller.
In the first rendering, you are halting the viewers eyes by putting another set of windows above the arch...

| Coaching Changes|| re: Strong will end up failing HUGE - higgsBoson on 1/6/14 at 3:54 pm|
What you have to like about Strong is that he's never really been a loser. As DC of Florida he fielded great defenses under an offensive head coach. He also was never a loser at his time in Louisville.
I think if he can recruit Texas, he will be successful at UT. Not Saban successful, but no one...
