    Bernie is a narcissist more than he is a socialist. Addicted to the attention.
  2. It's a fact that Jay didn't know about the Smith deal until it was all but done. Amazing this doesn't get more traction. Could be because so many beat guys who know this are dependent on certain people for access and don't want to rock the boat. This is a major issue in sports journalism today. Jay being such a "go along to get along" guy plays a part as well.
  3. Well if it's anything like the Alex Smith trade, Bruce and company "consult" Gruden after the trade is all but done, putting him in the situation where he would have to make a huge stink -- which would come out in the media no doubt -- and put himself in a crap situation with the guys who determine if he's going to stick around. What a joke. Considering the microscope the Skins are always under, it's amazing no one has really focused on how little Jay has had picking the QB, much less the rest of the roster.
  4. Oh man. Spent three weeks in NZ over the holidays. Favorite country in the world. So sad. Senseless.

    Giants gonna trade up for Murray. That's the latest rumor. And that the Rosen stuff is all a smokescreen. Giants coaches and front office out in force at his pro day.
  6. Nah, it's worse than that. 7 to 9 range as long as Bruce and Dan are here unfortunately.

    Based on his track record, one could say Charley Casserly doesn't work hard enough or study enough either.

    Based on their GM's recent history, Rosen might turn out to be a superstar. Steve Keim is rapidly approaching worst GM in the league territory. Obviously, Bruce is in his own special category so he doesn't count. I mean something that doesn't get talked about nearly enough is how Bruce traded for Smith without any really input from Jay. That is bonkers.

    Hard to really complain about this one. Worst case, we have a cheap NFL starter who is easy to root for and will be a good option when Colt -- who will look great in camp and preseason -- goes down in week two.

    He just can't change who he is, can he?
  11. My God the second episode was riveting. What a truly wild and depressing story.
  12. I have met him a few times. Went to a fundraiser my neighbor hosted. He kinda clung to me because I was the only person under 100. Then met him a second time at another event. Politics aside, he came off as a decent and nice person. Good sense of humor too.

    Lombardi is good radio but that doesn't mean he always know what he is talking about -- and had a terrible track record as a personnel guy, something he always spins. Gruden does love PA, but he has gone to shotgun more and more. Maybe he was talking about Jon.

    Skins are a constant dumpster fire when you factor in everything -- not just record -- but Gruden's scheme is super QB friendly. Guys are open all the time. Now, they usually get hurt the moment things start to click, but that's a whole other story. I would definitely take Rosen over Carr. The latter has a huge contract, had one good year, and dinks and dunks a helluva lot for a guy with a big arm. He also appears to wear mascara for some reason.

    There is no way we get Rosen on the cheap draft-picks wise. Would be pretty surprised if it's only a second. If we fall in love, Bruce will go overboard. My God, the Cardinals can't believe their good fortune. They'll settle on an already great deal for the Cards... and then Bruce will throw a good young player just for fun.
