    That is a plus.

    I just wish the weather was colder in Dallas. Maybe we could get some frozen snot on it.

    Reading Vela, the key metric for a center is how fast he can rotate his hips twelve inches.

    I agree with this. If you can't see he's already the best OL we have, you should stop opining.

    There is an ideal weight for each person. If you're already at that weight, then losing more will not be beneficial.

    People generically refer to the forty, but it was actually his 10-yard time that worried people.

    Unless you're a year-around well conditioned athlete in peak condition, then comparing anything that you do physically to an NFL athlete is comparing apples to oranges.

    It's not his play that's the problem. The guy is a headcase. Fine, he's looked really good in a few plays in preseason. Wait for it...

    Sounds like a good skill for a male escort...

    Escobar wasn't drafted for his blocking skills, though the hope is that he can develop them going forward. At least he doesn't show signs of being a complete meathead like his predecessor.

    Thomas is gone for the year, this was just my thinking during and immediately after the draft.

    I was totally on board with you here! These were the same guys I was hoping for at the time. The Williams pick was ok to me, but I did want Phillip Thomas. He's gonna be good once he returns.

    After watching Detroit playing New England we should be happy we passed on Larry Warford, he may get better but he was a turnstile on that Oline. He would be number 7 for talent in our Oline pool maybe higher. In other words no help at all this year. We hit the lottery with the Beard no doubt and then to get T Williams hard to bash Jones family on this one.
