    Best Free-Agents Bargains at every Position article... QB Brian Hoyer was with the Chicago Bears, not the Cleveland Browns...that was like 3-4 years ago bud

    I would bet Raiders fans disagree with your take on Pacman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VJBmfyEg10

    Your article on Flacco is complete garbage. Please name an established WR/TE he has to throw to other than Steve Smith. How about the fact he has had countless OC changes to deal with over the past 4 years. He tries to do too much because his WRs can't get open. You can't blame the Front Office either because they have $20+ million tied up in dead money from the wife-beater and Ngata.

    Brad Gagnon, you're a flipping idiot and your article sounds like a kid throwing a temper tantrum. You have no business writing.

    Have you really thought the Johnny Manziel thing thru? Let’s quickly sum up Manziel:

    1. Came out of college after only 2 years.
    2. Played in a pick-up, back yard style offense in college.
    3. Had well publicized issues with maturity and substance abuse.
    4. Just finished a lengthy stint of inpatient rehabilitation for substance abuse.
    5. Just finished a lengthy stint of inpatient rehabilitation for substance abuse.
    6. Just finished a lengthy stint of inpatient rehabilitation for substance abuse.

    Are you not familiar with the Tim Couch saga? You do know that QB’s can in fact be ruined? Forget about who gives the best chance to win this season, how about actually approaching his development in the right way? That is what you should be writing about. THAT IS THE ISSUE. You clearly have missed the forest for the trees. Which you shouldn’t have, considering Pettine has said over and over “We have a plan for Johhny’s development, and we are going to stick to it”. Tell me why these coaches, who are much closer to the situation than you, are going about his development the wrong way. Write a story about that – and don’t forget to mention why substance abuse isn’t a factor.
