    I hope he is! Come on Andy. Here is another reason to come here:

    You will be a freaking hero here Andy!

    Seriously. You think those other teams fans are lovin on a free agent guard like we are?

    I bring the tax issue up all the time. If i was going to sign a contract that included a $10M SB the taxes i would have to pay on that $10M would have to matter. In some states you would pay 7% of that in state income taxes alone. 0% in states like Tennessee, Texas and Florida. The difference is hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    As far as the higher sales tax is concerned you have control over how you spend your money. Consider that an incentive to invest more and spend less on meaningless luxury items. If you really want to avoid the high sales tax you can make a trip to Huntsville or Bowling green for a large purchase like a car.

    We've done a lot of moving linemen around lately, ideally you want your guards to play guard and tackles to play tackle.

    It's hard to build chemistry when you're always moving players around like we have the past 2 years.

    Not to my knowledge.

    They'd be dumb to show their hand here, waiting til March 12th has to be their plan.

    If we don't learn of them pursuing guys that day or the next then we're in trouble.

    Words don't mean much. But the question is how do you sell someone. I would sell that we are going to be a major player in NFL championships over the next decade. Why not?

    As far as one of the worst teams in the NFL, we were not in the bottom quarter of NFL teams. In other words, that is a very liberal use of the term "worst".
