    I think DeMarcus Ware is one hell of a player but really, Lawrence Taylor, really?

    Back to back one liners:

    Could be interesting. With Clifton out, GB has a rookie who’s played the position only twice going up against Jared Allen. The Vikes probably won’t blitz much but the Allen vs Newhouse matchup probably means mostly quick passes into defended territory – a risk of INTS – and ramping up running plays. The Packers will want to keep the Vikes D on the field as much as possible the first half so this could be a low scoring game for a while despite the secondary matchups.

    “DE Brett Keisel has held off the young players
    the Steelers brought in over the last few years.”

    ———————————————————-

    All that means is that the Steelers haven’t been able to draft very good defensive linemen for a while…

    Keep your head up J.Campbell, like Hue said you’ve done everything asked of you. The Redskins blew it letting you go and keeping Rex, or maybe Kyle Shannahan’s just not that good of a coach. Either way Raider Nations glad we have you.

    Agreed, tinbender. The Redskins let him go and have since started McNabb, Sex Cannon, and Beck, to no success, and the Raiders are going to let him go for two years of Carson Palmer and then…who knows, while Campbell, at 29, had 5+ good years left in him. The guy never got a fair shake in the NFL, and is better than people realize. Not his fault he was starting for bad teams with awful coaching and ownership for most of his career.

  7. tinbender2000 says: Oct 22, 2011 2:49 PM

    I hope the Raiders keep him. Even if Palmer stays healthy (hard for any QB in today’s NFL) does anyone have a better #2? Something tells me Terell Pryor will be the best #3 in no time. While I think they way overpaid for Palmer that’s a damn good 1-2-3 punch.
