    Just in time for the Thursday game with the Cowpunks. It will be tough living amongst the most obnoxious football fans in America.

    One thing is for sure, we're not winning anything this year. And as much as I hate to say it, we're probably entering yet another rebuilding phase.
    I'm in total agreement with literally everything you've written here, except for the rebuilding point. I think one position group needs to be rebuilt, seemingly yet again...Offensive Line. Expected the line to struggle early, then come together mid-year. Given the injuries...that was/is just not going to happen.

    I'm baffled by the McKinnon point too... I guess, if he were utilized as you say, we'd be having a different discussion.

    Enjoy Dallas, some great Texas BBQ down there...it's all about the beef, especially brisket!

    The cowboy fans don't hold a candle to the Philadelphia fans when it comes to being obnoxious

    .
    I think they run between the tackles cause that is where the strength of our crappy line is, guards and center with Fusco, Berger and Boone......when those guys are missing too

    I agree he would be better out of the slot or quick running back flares but with defenses not playing deep zones these are being covered

  8. Spielman has his nose up Zygis Rear and then Pfiefer has his nose up Spielman's rear. Now you know the rest of the story of how WP is run. Don't be surprised to see Zimmer step down as Spielman has ruined two NFL franchises just ask Nick Saban.

    Mike Zimmer said before the final game of the regular season that he thought quarterback Sam Bradford did an amazing job after being traded to Minnesota just before the start of the regular season.

    I think the Bradford trade looks fine. I think he played very well and should be given a ton of credit for how he performed.

    I think there are definitely questions about Spielman, but if Bradford ends up our QB for 5-10 years (which he might be) then giving up a mid-1st Round pick for him was not a terrible trade.

    It certainly hurts that we need O-Line help and we don't get to touch anyone in the first round, so there is a sting, but for a top-half QB (which Bradford certainly showed he might be) we did not give up the farm.

    The big question is how we move forward. If we decide that Teddy is still the future, then it was a terrible trade, but if Bradford starts for the next handful of years and puts up similar numbers (which should be better as O-Line and WR help hopefully arrives) then the trade itself is not bad.
