Re: Game Day Chat or Game Day Thread?

My personal preference is chat with a "post-game thoughts" thread. My reasoning is there's not a ton of substance in the gameday threads, it's like 80% "woohoo Diggs TD!" or "that's holding!" type stuff.

Vikings Analytics: Standard Rating System

Interesting nuggets here from Josh Norris. I'm trying to locate the source story.

With the roster coming back and (at least in theory) a better QB with an upgrade at 3T, playoffs minimum. If injuries hit, expectations should be tempered accordingly.

Posting here for obvious reasons:

Free agent OG Richie Incognito informed the Bills he will not retire before they granted his release on Monday.

Re: Jason Witten retires.

Quite the 14 months for the Cowboys. They lose Romo, Bryant and Witten.

Re: 1st Round Pick- Mike Hughes- CB, UCF

I like this pick. Insurance and competition for Waynes as well as a replacement for Newman. Corner is the toughest position on sports imo so it's always good to add talent there. I'm wondering if he will be the kickoff returner. A bit short so I'm not sure if that limits him from playing outside in...
