    I agree. Players that make it into the NFL can play. Outside of QB very few players are irreplaceable. Especially on good teams.

    Man that looks like an amazing pick. And he wasn't invited to the combine, right? How the hell does that happen?

    semantics. What you described is exactly what I was trying to say. We’re they as good as last year? No. We’re they as bad as some implied? No.

    We aren’t going to see a dominate performance every week. It’s just not possible. I also think some of the teams we played were snake bitten. Philly is injury riddled right now but look how they played the Rats. Wentz is still good and they are coached well. They just have too many players out.
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?
