Wondered if you guys had any views on the Jordy Nelson extension.  Nelson got $39m over four years with an $11m signing bonus following a season where he had career bests in receiving (85-1312-8TD).


For reference, Decker got $36.25m over FIVE years with a $7.5 signing bonus.  Last season he had 87 catches for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns.  And that was the second straight year with numbers at that level.


If Decker is a "product of Manning" then isn't Nelson a "product of Rodgers"?  (Of course the difference is that he get to stay with Rodgers.)  Nelson is also two years older.

Mike Vick goes long to Gates for a long TD. Milliner in coverage. Approval from the spectators.


Just when I had high hopes for Milliner, he puts himself in a position to be cut.

Cimini referred to CJ-Ivory as the "two-dreaded monster." Did he steal that from someone here?

Brendan - DL entrance music can't get any better than "The What"

I didn't sign the Bills petition for a couple reasons: 1.) Ownership listens to money, not petition signers and 2.) I kind of want the Bills to move. If they go to Toronto or LA, that's a much better road trip than Western New York....

I think Brandon Hardin isn't a football player, he's just an extra who plays training camp football players.

See that picture of him above wearing a practice jersey and holding his helmet, facing towards the camera?

Go do a Google Image Search for Brandon Hardin and all you get is multiple iterations of that same pose from Bears camps. All Hardin does is pose for that specific pic. It's uncanny.

QBs are going to see a lot of that first picture. Right in their face. In the face.

Of course he handles bull rushes. He's the BullDozier.

@williamg1 I doubt it, but yes it did take him several months to come up with something one of us came up with before they even signed him.

@Jeff E. Guy As someone living in LA, I would love to see Los Angeles get a team (for economic reasons). At the same time, Buffalo has it tough right now from an economic standpoint. Bills leaving would hurt Buffalo economically and psychologically. Seeing business after business leave town has to take its toll.

@Jeff E. Guy If they go to LA, realignment is probably going to follow. Or maybe we can get some more awesomeness like "NFC East team, the Arizona Cardinals." 


I signed it because as much as I want that team to fail miserably, I know some good people who root for that team that are from Buffalo and the team means a lot to the city. I can still respect that franchise despite the long rivalry between them and the Jets.

It works better to include Daryl Richardson and go with the Three-Dreaded Monster, anyway.

@Brendan @idothis2  that's cool, but I got one better. "Shook Ones" or if you really want the DL to go to that place then "Diary of a Madman" stops the show

The NFL would not allow the Bills to move cross country. Nor do they have any interest in breaking up the AFC East, West, or North's rivalries.

The only teams you will ever see relocating to LA would be the Rams, Raiders, Chargers, or Jaguars (and even the Jags is far fetched.)

They'd only approve of a move that does NOT involve a realignment of the divisions.

@Brendan  If geography is a determining factor, then Baltimore makes better sense in the AFC East. Its more of an East Coast town whereas Buffalo belongs in the upper midwest. Plus: fsck those guys.

@tsjc68 I could see the Jags moving, only because its easy for Jags fans to move their trailers to a different state.

@Jeff E. Guy @Brendan If they move to LA then they'd be in the AFC West, Baltimore would come east and I guess KC would move to the AFC North.

@Brendan @bradysucks heh, I was making fun of Bassett's pictures, not suggesting entrance music for the DL.

@tsjc68  "Manziel regressed in practice after the first week of organized team activities, and some in the organization attributed it to too much jet-setting and not enough dedication to the playbook.

Team officials had bought into Manziel's pre-draft promises to tone down the partying and leave his frat-boy lifestyle back in College Station, Texas, and they've been stunned by his non-stop antics, sources said."


That is so delicious.

@williamg1 That I agree with, but geographically it isn't, and that's what determines the alignment.

@williamg1 @tsjc68 "Playbook?  You mean I can't scramble around and then throw a jump ball because all our receivers are six inches taller than everyone else's tallest defensive back?"

@williamg1 I bet Pettine is loving this. You can tell he never wanted this kid, but it was their mutant owner who was pushing it. Manziel is such an idiot he doesn't realize he's giving Pettine the ammo he needs to keep him riding pine. This is actually good news for the Browns, Hoyer makes them a much better team.

@Brendan @williamg1 No doubt. Its just that Buffalo has that Pittsburgh, Cincy, Cleveland feel to it. They even speak similarly.

@Bent This was on my Get Hype mix senior year of high school. That mix had a LOT of DMX on it.
