Soxcat, Fisher has proven time and time again you can't believe a word out of his mouth
Calico has strained his Schfino
i hope i can still sell my signed calico card for enough money to buy some chips.
I think Roby in particular would have some trade value. He's looked good.
Roby and Orr look like clones to me.
I'd like to see us balance the roster out a little bit. We've got an extra WR, TE and RB and all of these positions are in demand on the open market. We could use another OL and CB.
What would a guy like Roby bring on the market? Assume he looks good early in the pre-season.
Whew. Lukewarm article at best. Doesn't say much when the home town paper only pitches you half a biscuit.
Heard an interesting discussion yesterday on Sirius... basically saying that some teams (not Calico specifically) draft great athletes and hope to make them into great football players.. it doesn't usually happen...more often than not they become average football players and that appears to be the case with Calico
Yep, it started way back with that guy...was it Bobby something? Anyway, he was an Olympic quality sprinter. Sometimes you can get some use out of them, but in the cap era, you can't afford to keep a guy on the team just so he can run fast on certain plays. You need football players.
I remember in the 80s when it was Renaldo "Skeets" Nehemiah- Olympic hurdler/sprinter.
I consider it more of a tie breaker, but I don't like when it vaults you a few rounds in the draft. I don't trust that. I'm more of a football player guy myself. I figure all that athletic talent would have translated to football plays at some point in your life before the nfl draft. And if it hasn't, then forget you. Nehemiah actually wasn't all that bad. He did average 18 yards per catch.
