    “Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald doesn’t think Matt Moore is a long-term answer at quarterback for the Dolphins.”

    Maybe not, but Armando Salguero doesn’t know about football. Armando Salguero is not the long-term answer for Miami sports reporting…

    Veldheer is becoming one of the est LT in the NFL.. he didnt get much help with chips all game either. One holding call, but thats better then letting ur QB get hit

    Stoogy is dead right about Veldheer. Last year as a rookie, he was a dominant run blocker at times who struggled with quicker pass rushers. This year, he’s doing it all, and deserves Pro Bowl consideration.

    Typical Raider draft pick isn’t he? Combine warrior with no decent college experience (Division II Hillsdale College!). Clearly Al reached badly by drafting a raw offensive lineman in the third round based just on his combine scores.

    Yeah, the Raiders really are clueless…

    (Note: that’s sarcasm, for any Broncos fans reading.)
