Actually, Hurney's final gift to us was Dwan Edwards.

Does anyone not remember that this time last year you were ready to trade Bell for a washing machine? Silatolu will be fine.

We'd still at least be able to shift the washing machine in the guard position and get better play there.

From what Rivera said at the time in pressers it seemed like Amini was a Chud pick. He talked about walking in on the offensive coaches watching film of players and saying "Man we need a guy like that" when he saw Amini. It's why they took him over the other guy (forget his name) that people were high on in the 2nd.

I still think Amini is going to be a really good player in this league. He was looking significantly improved until Kalil went out, and then the whole line took a step backward.

He and Bell don't worry me at all going forward. I'm just pissed that Marty thought Hangartner was gold because of the good ole days his first time here. Hangman sucked at RG, and he is now sucking at center. It's hard to believe there wasn't a vet out there that could have come in and helped hold down the RG spot, and/or one that could help us at center.

At least Amini has the excuse of youth and lack of experience. Maybe Byers will even be okay as a backup in a couple of years. Hangartner has no excuse; there is no upside there.

What everyone needs to remember is that Amini has played well in some games too. Then he's played bad like today.

Also, that Dline of the Broncos is young and fast. I mean quick.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt due to him being a rookie.

I remember the same story, but I believe it was Marty that brought him to Ron's attention.

Not ready to give up on him yet. One thing he was good at was pulling and setting down field blocks. However we rarely run plays like that in the run game(heck we don't run enough period). He struggles at times in the pass game though.

He stinks now but I think with the right coaching he can become a competent player. Bell I'm not so sure about.

    • I think people can have concerts wherever they like but if they have a concert that is open to the public it should be open to everyone.   Stores can be open or closed to the public whenever they see fit.  You shouldn't have to provide your services 24 hours a day but when you do provide a service to the public the public should be treated equally. Again, the KKK is a terrorist organization and you can refuse service if there is reasonable concern for you or your customers personal safety.  And a white person can file a discrimination suit against a web designer if they feel like they are being refused a public accommodation because of their race.  A homosexual does not have same protections in federal statutes. And quit saying "participate in".  They aren't asking for gay sex.  You aren't participating in homosexuality.
    • LOL! You mad. It's May, there's not much to talk about. Everything will get over-analyzed right now. Might as well just accept it or disappear until there's more to talk about.
    • A guy who's missed 11 games in the last two years with perpetually bad hammies and a guy who has less than 1000 career receiving yards. Yeah...
