Peterson considering retirement though I'd be surprised if it happens.


I know there was some debate whether Peterson is a HOF if he never played again. Maybe we will revisit. I'm not definitive, but I'm leaning no.

Adrian Peterson Wins Suspension Appeal

 

This is a meaningful victory for the NFLPA, though, which has now successfully appealed two big suspensions on the grounds that Roger Goodell is making shit up as he goes along.

Is anyone else disgusted in general with the NFL these days? I wish they had a competitor.

Ray Rice punching his fiancé on tape really fucked up the NFL. I think a lot of this starts right there with how the Rice thing was handled.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I think we're about a decade too late for a real competitor. While you can't ever say that something is at peak popularity until it is already on the downswing, I don't know how much higher the league can go with all of the problems hanging over its collective head. Especially with the questions relating to long-term player health, I can't see enough people with the kind of money you would need being willing to invest in a new league.

 

Unless something happens between the pro and college levels that necessitates the formation of a minor league, I don't see there being an opportunity for a new pro league in America for a very long time.

I agree.  I think there's a better chance of some other sport becoming a player in America (soccer, rugby, arena football, etc).

Diggs has played in 2 games... yesterday his first start... 13 catches, 216 yards in those two games.
http://www.startribu...iggs/333941361/

 

“He’s polished,’’ veteran cornerback Terence Newman said. “Runs good routes. Quick as a hiccup. Very smooth. When I first got here I was like, ‘Hey, who is this kid?’ I was impressed with him from Day 1.

“If he keeps his head on straight and keeps doing what he’s doing, he’ll be one to watch. Potential Hall of Famer, down the road.’’

 

Fellow veteran corner Captain Munnerlyn nodded emphatically. “He’s so special,’’ Munnerlyn said. “He’s one of the most polished receivers I’ve ever seen come out of college. I’m glad he dropped into our hands. I feel like we got the steal of the draft. Great routes, great hands, works hard, great attitude.’’

 

“You never know how things are going to go on Sundays, but day in and day out, that’s what we’ve been seeing,’’ said safety Harrison Smith. “He’s an explosive player with great hands, but for me what’s most impressive is his understanding of the game. He knows how to get that good separation. He’s incredibly well-rounded for such a young player.’’

 

“He’s really crafty, really smooth on his routes, runs tremendous routes,’’ cornerback Xavier Rhodes said. “He’s going to be a great receiver.’’

 

 

I'm so glad the Ravens got Tray Walker (136th overall) and not Diggs (146th overall).

Well the Ravens were pleased they snagged Walker:
