As bad as the Panthers' situation is, there are still teams that are run worse. The Browns, for example. On what earth did it ever make sense to draft a 28-year old QB with two years of starting experience when you had a 25 year old one who had 6 years of starting experience between college and the pros?


I'll never understand the decision to take Weeden in the first round. He's already 29 and has looked the worst of all the rookie QB's.

Shelley Smith was waived by the Texans on September 1st and was claimed by the Rams.

Yesterday, he had his first career start and was straight ballin' (tough term for an offensive linemen, but he was that good). He was better than anyone else on the Rams offensive line on Sunday. Monster in the running game, good enough in the passing game.

Any thoughts on him as a player? Maybe he's a better fit for the power scheme the Rams run?

I actually laughed out loud when the Texans drafted him because Apollo, Lork, ET, kenney, mse and probably blaze all predicted like 6 months before the draft that Kubiak would take Smith given his live for Colorado State, late round ZBS linemen and Colorado State. The fact that his name is Shelley also gave me a laugh. The Texans take.....Shelley!!

I don't know why we let him go.

He was good this season in preseason, as well. I'm not sure why he was allowed to walk.

Perhaps he was out of PS eligibility and we'd already committed to Ben Jones and Brandon Brooks with draft picks this year.

Anyhow, good to know he's doing well.

And the Mario saga continues in Buffalo!

After the high paid and over hyped defense gave up 35 points to the titans Sunday, Mario was asked post game if he was living up to the contract he signed, and he replied I don't care about your expectations, or anybodies expectations.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/10/23/mario-williams-i-dont-care-about-anybodys-expectations/


What's the O/u for the years actually played out on his contract? I'm gonna go with 3.

And now Mario has gone ahead and had surgery on his wrist, but he "shouldn't" miss anytime. Maybe he doesn't want to come back to Houston and will make an excuse to stay in Buffalo....lol

How did the Pats get Talib for only a 4th!


Also who do the Chiefs take at #1, Barkley?

Yeah, it'll be Barkley. It'll come down to Geno and Barkley, and Barkley has a better track record of success, is more athletic, and is a pretty polished QB fundamentally.

I'm not sure where to put this, but here it goes.

Beat the Bears next week. Beat them bad. I know you message board posters will try really hard. But try really, really hard for me. Like the hardest you have tried + 1.

Ok thanks! Bye!

Maybe, but I doubt we bring him in. Someone will sign him though.
