There exist some subjects in need of analysis and discussion. The topics are varied as the fans on this site.
I notice that no fanshot has been posted regarding Dez Bryant's recent antics. It seems Mr. Bryant refused to carry "#1" Roy Williams' pads in from practice. While I agree it's stupid to have the guy carry another players' pads on a pro team, I also think that rookie initiations, hazing, etc. are fine, and Dez is showing his contrarian nature by doing this. I believe this will be indicative of future issues. Enjoy your fancy WR, Dallas. What do you think, MHR?
Can anyone tell me what happened to Ted Bartlett? I really enjoyed his insights, and the debates between him and others on this site. When he struck out on his own to form SmarterFans, I checked in from time to time. Sadly, his last update was a mock draft, and I've heard nothing from him since. He seemed stalwart in his resolve to make SmarterFans a great site for football knowledge, and abandoning the dream seems contrary to his style. If anyone knows what's going on, I'm curious. If it's none of my business, give Ted my best.
I have heard rumors that the Broncos are trying to sign our 1st round rookies by training camp so they are there the whole time. I believe that to be true, but my question is: Why would Tebow or Thomas hold out of Rookie TC? Would they really? We drafted them. Wouldn't holding out just drive their value down? Especially in light of the way Doom was rewarded for playing the game the right way, does anyone really see Thomas, or ESPECIALLY Tebow holding out? Just curious...
I miss Horvil Tiki. Can I get an Amen? The blowhard running that site now annoys me. I guess controversey sells, though. I keep going back... mainly just to see if that nonsense-talking South Pacific Islander has posted anything. I don't know why I liked the guy so much. He's just funny to me.
What do you think about the Redskins? Will Shanahan be redeemed? Did he learn from being fired? I think so. I think he never would have been as good again, but when Bowlen shocked him, he went back to school, modernized, and got a valuable change of scenery. I think the Redskins will do well over the next few years. McNabb under Shanny reminds me of Elway under Shanny: agin excellent QB who's never won the big game. Just a hunch. I still don't know if I'll root for him or the 'skins yet.
This is an open discussion thread. Feel free to hijack it. Thanks!
