  1. COUNTDOWN: Greatest WR of All Time

    Randy Moss. I won't go into why because we have all discussed this topic over and over again in many previous threads on the old site.
  2. Owens declines HoF Ceremony Invitation

    When TO was playing, they had to put up with his childish antics because the teams he played for needed him for the next play, the next series, the next game, etc. The Hall of Fame has no need for the guy, so there is no reason for them to put up with his buffoonish behavior. I wouldn't waste a second on any player who doesn't want to be a part of the ceremony.
  3. Marino Favre Brees Young
  4. How will the 2018 rookies fare this year?

    I don't think any of the rookies will be overly impactful this season. They are all 2+ year projects that could develop into something later. I'm hoping the kicker will be good though.
  5. I'm looking forward to seeing Ndamukong Suh playing next to Aaron Donald on the interior of that Rams d-line. Another player I'm looking forward to seeing is Saquon Barkley. He could take the league by storm just like Adrian Peterson did back in 2007.
  6. Most underrated player on your team

    Trae Waynes - many Vikings fans still think he is a liability in coverage, but they need to remember that this isn't 2016. Last season Trae Waynes was a very solid cornerback, both in coverage and as a tackler.
  7. I think Waynes has already taken that step. He is a very good starting cornerback, IMO. He played very well last year. I think a lot of people are underestimating not only him but also how long it takes to learn both the NFL game and how to play at a high level in Mike Zimmer's defense at the cornerback position. I would rather resign Waynes than Barr because Barr would be easier to replace, IMHO. That may not end up happening, but that's what I'd do if it came down to a decision between the two of them. As others have already said, however, Diggs should be the #1 priority at this point.
  8. NFL Suspends Bucs QB Jameis Winston for 3 Games

    Do you think it's a wise practice for an NFL quarterback to be standing around on the sidewalk outside of a bar waiting for an Uber driver to show up? I don't. Seriously.

    I guess if it were me, I would arrange for a private limo. That way there would be no issues with the driver, and no possibility of being left out on the street corner waiting for a ride - especially for a semi-celebrity in a strange city. Then again, I don't drink either, so I don't have to worry about making poor decisions in an inebriated state.
  10. With teams like the Rams, Eagles, Vikings, Saints, etc. in the conference, that would shock the heck out of me.
  11. They have an easy schedule and they should be better than last year, but this sure doesn't look like a 14-2 team to me. The new GM was light years better than Ted in the offseason, so give him a couple years to add some pieces, and some more time for the new rookies to develop and they could be looking at a 14-2 type of record then. I just don't think they have come that far from last season quite yet, even with a healthy Rodgers.

    The guy is a multimillionaire. What's he doing calling Uber for a ride? LOL. Some of these guys just aren't too bright, but then we've known this for a long time.
  13. Owens declines HoF Ceremony Invitation

    I'm not really sure what that has to do with his being inducted in the Hall of Fame. Going to another sport, you can look at Babe Ruth, one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) baseball players of all time. He wasn't exactly a poster boy for health and fitness, but it didn't really matter.

    I just heard about this story. This is just another reason why I'm glad they made him wait to get in. If there was a Hall of Fame for knuckleheads, TO would have a statue on top of the building.
  15. The one on this list who obviously should have been fired long ago is Marvin Lewis. He seems to be made of Teflon, though, so I'm going to say Mike McCarthy will be the first to go. He is a good coach, but I think he is sitting on a fairly warm seat right now after having survived the guillotine in the offseason. Green Bay has a new GM, and unless they have a great season AND postseason, I could see Mike Pettine wanting to go in a new direction with a coach of his own choosing.
