[quote]Do we know when the Players voted?[/quote] I'm guessing the offseason. The QB rankings reflect team success more than any other position. People forget how good Aaron Rodgers was down the stretch. What would the rankings be if Atlanta didn't blow their lead? Would M. Ryan be higher tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Cowboys fans, explain to me what happened to your franchise - Ghost of Colby on 6/24/17 at 7:48 pm
It was the salary cap. Teams manage their rosters much differently now. The Cowboy roster was decimated over the course of just a few years because other teams would sign solid contributors off their roster to huge contracts. Cowboys didn't replace those players with solid draft picks or smart f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Are the greens still holding moisture? The leaders won't tee off until nearly 3:00. The golf course could be completely different by then. The early groups have to contend with strong wind, but the greens are still on the soft side. The leaders won't have as much wind, but the course will be har...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
