    What is the origin of “bang it here”? You have used that before and I like the ring of it. Is that a new world web-related term or is that a remnant of newspaper days?

    J.J Watt is going to be a terrific 3-4 DE in this league. Probably the next aaron smith

    I think Jerry Jones just hires people who make him look more handsome. He can’t get any more face lifts and more Botox will kill him eventually. Note to Rob Ryan, lose some weight, get a dang haircut, and start showing that your family can actually practice some self control. Also, please don’t color your hair anymore. It scares and confuses kids.

    It looks like a decent group but not the best underclassmen class by far. As usual some over hyped OT’s will go in the top 5.

    Suggestion: the scope of your post would benefit greatly if you simply added how many underclassmen declared for the draft last season and the season before that. If together we aspire to gain wisdom from our understanding of this sport, then can we at least say that football is a game of field position. There is no reason to punt on 3rd down, which is how my feelings on this post ultimately sum up. It is what it is.

    That is the t-shirt worn by female Georgia college students when sports celebs come to town, right?
