Wasn't that long ago that Remmers was on the Vikings' practice squad. Curious to see the numbers on this one. twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/s…

Lol, at comparing him to Asiata, he is closer to being Adrian Peterson then he is to being Matt Asiata.

That said, I understand wanting to test the RB draft class, that is probably the only reason a guy like him isn't signed yet.
I didn't compare him to Asiata, I said he was an upgrade. Would he not fill the role that Asiata presently has? It should be pretty clear why I'm trying to put the two together.

And lol @ you for comparing him to Adrian. AD will be in the hall of fame one day, Lacy will be there too, but with a box of donuts and paying general admission.

Your right, I had no business comparing the two.

Ads 1.9 ypc last year was pathetic, truly not worthy of being mentioned with a monster like Lacy. :whistle:

As much as I love watching people arguing over petty statistics, I wanna know who we lose and who we sign. So if you guys could stop arguing in this thread (preferably stop entirely), that would be nice.

I heard we lost Cap. Can someone actually prove it? It would be pretty sad if we did.

It can't be that hard to effectively replace an immobile trash can.

It's only $3 more mill total. Tackle contracts are insane right now. Reiff is the better tackle and more durable. I would love to see what this board would look like if we gave Kalil the contract Carolina did

Jordy and PHP: knock off. Stop antagonizing each other before you both get temporarily banned. Trolling and name calling are off limits and you're both well aware of it.
I have to get to the post office before it closes. I'll delete the mess when I get back.

Edit: Okay, a bunch of posts have been deleted and frankly, I'm not pleased at having to waste my time doing it.
