Hey hey hey HEY!!!!!  Don't go blaming ganja for Gordon's lack of taste!  There are too many examples out there of people with more dollars than sense and this just happens to be another.

True enough...though I still think his being a total stoner (seriously, dude goes WAY beyond casual smoker) is a contributing factor.  :D

Just saw this one online, and assuming it's true, it's pretty damned impressive.

Since the Jets drafted OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson, they have run 10,708 regular season offensive snaps. Ferguson played on 10,707 of them.

Yep, it is true. And astounding. That's a man who has played through a lot of pain.

Apparently the Rams felt bad about getting all of those picks from Washington for RG3. They just sent Tennessee their first rounders this year and next, 2 second rounders this year and their third rounders this year and next for the #1 and the Titans 4th and 6th rounders this year. All of that for...Carson Wentz? Jared Goff? We aren't exactly talking Andrew Luck-level QB prospects here. Hell, neither of them would have been close to Winston or Mariota last year.

Hell yes! Landing one player wasn't going to put them over the top. Big fan of this move.

one guy isn't putting the Rams over the top, either, but they couldn't just sit there and take whoever happened to fall into their lap, especially if they thought Cleveland was going to take the guy the Rams wanted.

That's bogus. No way Romo makes it to Week 11.

13 Days until Clemson pounds Auburn in Auburn.
Then the Auburn faithful will start talking about who they want as their next head football coach.

At least Bruce Pearl has had a great recruiting year.  Maybe Men's basketball will at least be average.
