    Face it, the doucheier they are, the more attention they get...
    If that's the case, it could have been intentional. But that would mean Ed is clever and I doubt that

    Good point though.

    Ed Bouchettes apology regarding HIS mistake on the mandatory NFL Players Association Rookie Premier:

    --- We were wrong about rookie Dri Archer skipping spring practices last week in order to appear at the NFL Players Association Rookie Premier. He was required to attend because he was chosen to attend, per league rules. It may be a stupid rule that keeps a rookie away from his team for his first few practices with his new veteran teammates while others are getting a leg up, but that’s the rule. So, in reality, the practices were not voluntary for Archer last week because it was mandated he stay away. It is nearly as dumb as the rule that prevents rookie linebacker Jordan Zumwalt from practicing with his teammates because UCLA’s spring classes have not yet ended. Archer should be ready to go when OTAs resume Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

    i'm just happy to hear that OTAs wasn't some guy
    1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
    2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
    3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
    4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
    5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
    6) Incredible depth and ST demon
    7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier

    Way to deflect Douchette.

    Blame the league for a dumb rule, rather owning it for not getting your facts straight before you publish something derogatory.

    Of course, I expected no less from the sorriest sports reporter in the 'Burgh.
