So, in other words, you should never go to BR for any breaking news or rumors because they won't provide it.
How is it that they make millions if they arent providing news or any other service? Do enough people vist that site to have THAT much ad revenue?

They have many millions of people visiting their site each month. They've mastered Google Search so often people see their stories appear first. Their slideshows drive up their pageview/visit numbers. They have a huge audience. Their philosophy was basically get the audience first, then focus on the quality. They have the audience. Some of their new policies and their acquisition by Turner should help with the quality

Bleacher report speculated a Lorenzo Alexander and late round pick for Jennings. All we need is 2 injured star receivers...
Do you honestly think that a good pre-season is going to bring a higher pick for cousins than what we spent on him? I dont.

Griffin has good enough WRs...in fact, he already has too many. Everyone except Butterfingers Briscoe gets in on the action.

I thought it was Criscoe Briscoe.

In my opinion, the site itself is crap. The slides actually annoy me. There is no worthwhile content that i wouldnt rather get some somewhere else.

But I really admire their business plan and execution.

Many of the same reasons I passed on their offer...though I probably could have happily sold my soul had I know what lay ahead for them

They do have some good videos on their YouTube page

Really? REALLY? LOL

Moss would see more targets if Robert was a pure dropback passer. But to call Welker a number 1?

It has so much to do with situation though. If Welker was on the skins / jets over these last 10 years do you think people even know his name? Do you think having tom brady throw you the ball for all these years will help or hinder your career? Do yourself a favor, and check out moss career stats. Now imagine him with Brady all those years. Now add about 50 td's, 7,500 yards, and 250 catches to those totals. Hows Moss stack up now? Having brady get you the ball as compared to grossman, ramsey, campbell, etc etc is night and day. Moss has had to fight for every catch hes ever made. Welker is the recipient of a hall of famer putting the ball exactly where it has needed to be for years.

Wes Welker has had 110 avg recs- a year with avg of 1000 a year with avgs of over 6 tds a year. He is even still the same without R.Moss.

Like the excuses for Moss is killing me he is in no shape better than Welker at all. 05 is clearly diff but thats about it Welker over Moss any day And yes Welker is NE #1 guy who has already 600 yards and 40 rec. Im no big stats guy but even in games you should favor Moss.

And Moss has had 5 diff QB's in WSH Jason Campbell-Rex Grossman-Brunell - And Mcnabb and he is still the same guy . Welker would be an improvement for RG3 if he was here I highly doubt Moss would be as good as Welker if you watch both of em Welker is a bit faster and a much better route runner as well as getting much more open.
