I used to like WR Roy a lot, and I still like him way more than SS Roy, but to trade away a 1st, a 3rd, a 6th, AND a 7th for him?? That seems like a bit much to me. I also found it somewhat amusing that Terrell Owens was referred to as "aging."
Didn't Dallas remember from the Herschel Walker deal that the team giving away the bunch of picks for the single player usually doesn't work out for the team giving up the picks?
“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras
Originally posted by StingArmyBy the way, the REAL victim in all of this is my poor Calvin Johnson. He deserved far better than being drafted by Detroit, and now it looks like he's even worse off than on draft day.
Then again, he could have been drafted by the Raiders, so maybe he has nothing to whine about.
As long as Calvin doesn't wake up one morning and finds out that Reggie Ball is his QB again, he should be fine.
How does the NFL substance testing work? Would he have been testing all offseason, or would he have to start testing now to go to mini-camp? I'm wondering if this isn't just a stall tactic at some level.
