Fun write up @Destructo Spin!!

Look at our backs, too. Along with some other dudes...
Alvin Kamara = Pierre Thomas (only Alvin compares to PT in the ability to make a simple screen go for 35-60 yards)
Ben Watson = Jeremy Shockey (ultimate team player that isn't flashy, but will kill you when it counts)

I'll type more later, gotta do some work.

does this mean David Onyemata is going to light up former super bowl MVP Nick Foles after Cam Jordan picks him off this weekend?

one parallel we wont be repeating? playing the Vikings in the conference game :D imagine paying the largest fully guaranteed contract in NFL history to a """franchise""" QB just to win 8 games!

Most people made teh comment that Cousins isn't a great QB and just a guy that won't lose you the game, a definition of a game manager.  I think Minnesota would've been better off with Alex Smith...
