  1. LB Koa Misi a man without a position? Opening lines in the article he stuffs the run well and can cover but cannot rush the passer. hmmm switching to a 4-3 hmmmm sounds a lot like a MLB and both Dansby and Burnett are better suited for OLB in a 4-3. Out of the 3-4 I thought he should have been moved inside all along also and Dansby can rush the passer from the outside like he did in Arizona.

  2. What the hell else are you going to do in Buffalo in February? Golf? Boating? Picnic in the park? Croquet?

    If I lived there, it’d be a fifth of vodka and a football game on the tube, as a means of escape.

  3. Interesting note on Vince Wilfork in the Superbowl: A critical drive killing phantom holding call against the Giants was called involving Wilfork. After the flag was thrown, the officials asked Wilfork whether he was held. He said No. They enforced the penalty anyway, and the Giants subsequently had to punt. I believe this preceded one of the Pats first half scoring drives. The Giants constantly had to fight against blantant bogus calls against them throughout the postseason. It is as if the NFL wanted to handicap the Giants and test their composure.

  4. Love how this site absolutely BURIES the story about Tuck visiting the wounded NY police officer. But they are MORE than happy to play up any story that could make them look “arrogant” or “classless”. WAY TO GO, PFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
