    True but Brown is probably the best route runner so is more technically sound than the other two. My main concern is not getting to Big Ben and him breaking a sack or something. That is when he is dangerous to go down the field. If we can keep him in the pocket and under wraps we have a real good shot.

    Ya that was last week. I don't look at teams that way. Every bad team in the league is fully capable of beating the best team on any given Sunday.

    I heard about Barr missing practices earlier this week. Wasn't overly concerned tho.
    And thankfully Sleeves MRI came back clean.

    Yeah, I'm a little concerned with Bradford but its somewhat encouraging they had him practicing all week (albeit in a limited fashion). Man if Bradford goes down early in the year (before Teddy can come up) I'm going to be so upset.

    This has me greatly irritated... We have our prototype tight end... Why could we not groom a beast receiving tight end... It's these things that annoy me with this team... I feel like we too often are worried about our starters that we don't look into our depth or our possible future... We are gaining all of these late round picks to either miss BIG TIME... or give them away...

    I definitely don't know what they did NOT see that they'd let Bucky get away. And I agree, he could become a beast. Irritating to me as well.

    OMG why oh why does this happen to us. I am very concerned I must admit. Maybe I shouldn't be but that is the luck of our franchise. However this may be why we can't sign him to a long term contract but lets not get too far ahead. But with the next years draft being potentially stacked with talented QB's you have to think we may spend an early pick on one.

    Onto Bucky, the good news I suppose in all of this is he is just on the PS. So if one gets injured or say Bells services are no longer needed we can steal him back. I wonder if we chose Bell over him due to blocking concerns? Not sure if Bell is a better blocker or not.

    Not really sure about the Bucky thing but about Bell. Was anyone else surprised at how many snaps he was in for on Monday despite being with the team for what I think was less than a week? I felt like he played a ton of snaps.

    Bradford made the trip to Pittsburgh. Kyle Sloter was signed to the active roster. There's definite concerns about the knee. Hopefully our line holds up. Much stiffer test against the Steelers.

    I really hope this Bradford injury is much to do about nothing. We looked like a complete offense last week i was hoping to build on that.

    Doesn't seem like nothing. The MRI signals that. The MRI was negative so hopefully it's just a tweak.

    Good news for the Vikings is that Stephen Tuitt may not play. Supposedly tore his biceps last week. He's a force inside.

    Really eager to see AB and Rhodes to head to head.
