Was thinking the same thing...

This is the same paper that gives platform to the Socialist/PsychHistorian Paul Krugman to be awarded the Nobel for economics; his economic policies whiche he advocates that have gotten us in the mess we're in today...

I'll said it before and I'll say it again. The one thing our offense really missed that a lot of people have over looked is the departure of Bell. We won a lot of games because of his running... it enabled Payton to run the clock out and keep the ball out of other teams hands. One could argue that was a key ingredient in the SB run.

Enter - Ingram.

Definitely had to restrain myself from getting into politics here...but giving up the last pick of the first round isn't that big a deal when you get the one right after it.

Also, Morestead is a badass punter and deserves more respect than a mention followed by an immediate dismissal.

Finally, let me throw in a pre-emptive "Shut up Danno."

Our D was #4 in the league last year. Yes they let us down in that playoff game, but injuries on offense had a big play and what went down last year. We could not get enough healthy RBs on the feild at one time to establish any kind of rythem and the games were placed directly on Drews shoulders.
