Re: Around the NFL 2013 Offseason (Episode 99)

There's now some local speculation in Denver that the Ravens might get their own painted end zone in Denver's stadium. A PR guy from the NFL called into a sportstalk radio show in Denver and said they're treating it "like the Super Bowl" and fans will enjoy it, then hung up.

This is all idiotic. The Ravens are the "home" team in Denver. Of course, the Orioles are to blame but it's being handled poorly.

Lets just hope RS presents some facts and evidence.Just not buying Hernandez was going to be cut, he was a heavy user of angel dust, or Urban Meyer covered up a drive by shooting. Are you?

You think we might have heard a little of something about any of this other than RS magazine. Who were the writers?
Well, RS is in the biz of selling magazines so...

Read the article for yourself and see what you think.

Heavy user of angel dust? Why would I have reason to be skeptical?

But I get it. You have an ingrained skepticism about the media so you have your doubts there's any legitimacy to any of this
Like I said, not a fan of Urban, but Im gonna give him the benefit. Covering up a drive by shooting, thats pretty low.

Heavy user of angel dust, its just that you typically dont find the a user abusing over and over consistently. You really dont want too. And its just the rarity of finding it. Ill be surprised, but hey get your sherm on.

No ingrained sketicism about the media, Im just considering all angles and see a motive for RS. I would again like to see who actually wrote it as well.

Wow. Talk about no respect. Our backfield of Morris, Young & Helu rated as 19th in the league.

JR, I'd be happy with being ranked 33rd, as it really doesn't matter.

Even if Grossman were our starter, we'd rank higher than that.

True enough. Still, it just goes to show how little some of the talking heads know about the Skins. It really isn't just the RGIII show. This is a deep team.

First how are you almost cut when just got an extension, second Urban Meyer would not cover up a drive by shooting, just how ridiculous is that statement. I know Urban Meyer is a first class POS, but covering up a drive by? No.

Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust? what? are they failed drug test or any evidence at all? And why angel dust, I mean ive know some people with substance abuse problems and they got help and got better. But ive never known anyone who said angel dust was their drug of choice. I could be believe maybe Hernandez experiemented, but a heavy user or addict to that? No way.

Rolling Stone needs to focus on music, they are really on a losing roll imo.
Idk, doesn't seem that hard to believe to me. If he knew how to get past the drug testing who's to know exactly what he was doing. PCP does seem like an oddly specific drug to mention, but I'll wait until I read the whole article to know how they reached that conclusion.

And as far as the whole "close to being cut" argument goes, well I can remember at least one player who was recently here who got a huge extension and was traded the following offseason. It's not unreasonable to believe they gave him the extension thinking he'd earn it as long as he stayed out of major trouble, but looking at what happened I think once they found out the seriousness of the charges it was pretty easy to cut him.

And as far as the Urban Meyer thing goes, it could've been pretty easy for him to make the decision to help cover it up if he didn't know all the details, or if he thought Hernandez's involvement was minimal. We hear articles every day about major NCAA programs violating rules and covering things up, and I have little doubt that at a major program like Florida taking care of the football team is of pretty high priority, because that's probably the breadwinner for the entire program.

I'm not going to call him guilty now but with everything we know it's not hard to see these points as conceivable given the circumstances.

Yeah, I remember the so-called "safest pick in the draft." Surely he'll find some way to put to use the 34 million guaranteed he earned in the NFL.

Revis has to come back healthy to show he's still the best cover man, but that aside, I complete agree that the guys in the league who show little respect for those who came before them (nod to Darrell Green here) need to STFU. I am with Revis on this one.

Love this quote from that article:

As you read this, Sherman is staring in his bathroom mirror, rehearsing his response. Skip Bayless is walking in circles, rambling incoherently.(So, what else is new? )

Yeah. that was pretty awesome. If you want another worthwhile read, whenever we're feeling tortured by our Superbowl drought, you could be a Bills fan (this is hilarious): 32 Reasons Being A Buffalo Bills Fan Is More Painful Than Childbirth
