Re: bogus web pages and misleading titles

I've seen that Drew Doughty stuff in news sites and I don't get how so called legit news organizations let this happen.

The other things that I hate are the 12 top ____ where you have to click on page after page to see anything. I no longer bother. 4 clicks to get to tip #1 usually.

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Adams would be an upgrade over Ross just for the reason that he has more experience. It's hard to say anything about Ross as he was given limited chances. We do know that for backups with Wally's QB factory history - it's progress in the second year significantly or go. BUT that QB factory has not b...

Re: Glenn signs in Edmonton

Kevin Glenn would have been GC champion (likely ) but for his broken hand in the WDF with the Bombers.

Hufnagel and Dickenson have no qualms about his skills and have said so - not just blowing smoke.

He's HOF for sure and not to do with the number of teams.

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

Funny thing today on CNN. Woman being interviewed about politics and just before it's over the host cuts to the last play of the Vikings win and asks for comments. She said her husband must have been responsible for tipping them off that she convinced him the game was over and shut the TV off only t...

Re: Alouettes sign QB Josh Freeman

To make any sense out of Montreal these days is difficult. The QB here Freeman looks like a Hail Mary and the QB roster looks sad. Did Popp and Trestman simply mask the knee jerk tendencies of the owners to repeal and replace HCs? It sure looks like it. I thought Tom Higgins back in 2015 looked to b...

Re: Glenn signs in Edmonton

It's a good move for the Esks and puts Glenn back in a similar situation he was in Calgary where when he did play due to injury he did a pretty good job and one that few b/ups ever can do. Now if the Atlantic team comes soon he'd be a likely candidate at his age to go unprotected at QB as they never...

Re: Lions trade for RB Brandon Rutley

Hard to figure this out unless they see losing someone or using Rainey other places than in the backfield like Banks in Ham got moved to.

Interesting to know who the neg list player was. A QB I'd suspect lol

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Does Garcia still run any sort of camp Toppy? I tried various Google searches and can't come up with much on the topic since about the time you talk of with BLM which would be about 5 years ago. I could find info on a Beyond Wealth company he formed but that was about preparing players for life aft...

Re: Alouettes sign QB Josh Freeman

Perhaps "fodder" was the wrong word. Would it be better to say that he has an outside shot at winning a backup role if everything goes right? Freeman - if I read this right - tried out last year so maybe they liked what they saw and want to see if he has that old form again. Montreal can't possibly...

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

Interesting move as that might also ensure some incentives for Lulay as right now his recovery is crucial. Frankly speaking, the CFL and the Stamps saw how beneficial it was for Bo Levi to attend the Jeff Garcia bootcamp (which BLM did on his OWN money at the rec'd'n of then OC Dave D). That was the...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

Giving this topic a bump here as it seems the zest for the name change isn't an easy topic. Mike Reilly is the voice of this infomercial on Edmonton by their Econ Dev't Office I think. Knocks Calgary in his typical joking fashion. "We’re a city of grit. Of love. A city that gets up while it’s still ...

Re: Bighill released by Saints

Great post about past defensive lines Blitz but I am not sure what it has to do with Bighill unless you think he can play DE. :shock: I am a big fan of the Lions new (and former) D line coach, Randy Melvin, so this is a great start to the rebuild. What I think Blitz is addressing are reasons why a ...

Re: Johnny Manziel Offered 2 Year Contract

Check this out!!! It appears that those here who saw MTL as the real location for Manziel might be prescient. I didn't see it and now I think I see what's really going on here. It's now appearing to me that the Ticats HC June Jones wants Manziel but I see Eric Tillman's hands all over this one and w...

Re: Bighill released by Saints

Would love to see him back as a Lion. Aren't fans leaning to no Biggie and putting that money on D Line and O Line? It seems we've had great LBs but that just means they make a lot of tackles if the D Line isn't at the top of their game. Wally might take him in a flash thinking you can never have t...

Re: Bighill released by Saints

Is this basically been his season? Stats here: http://www.nfl.com/player/adambighill/2558295/profile Looks like it was a total of 3 GP and 1 tackle in Weeks 1, 6 and 11 and then the OT W. They lost G1 and won the others. Bighill played six special teams snaps in the 34-31 overtime win over Washingto...
