It just looked like you didnt approve of players owning pitbulls.

I'm not trying to get in your head, thats just what it looked like to me.
That's cool, thanks. I edited that part out.

Back to the Combine. Did anyone see Jake Long's body build? The guy appears like he's built like a TE. Historically speaking, he appears to be a proto-type for the ZB scheme. Depending on feet speed of course. I reckon he'll be gone by the 18th though.

Mario is perhaps the most misunderstood draft pick of all time . This is part ESPN and part VY and RB blindness .

I have a friend who has season tickets ( I guess he's a fan ) told me a couple of days ago that the Texans screwed up not taking VY . I asked why ... he said they took a guy no one ever heard of who would have been a 2nd round pick at best .

I don't think he believed me when I said that the Saints would have drafted Mario 2nd if the Texans did'nt take him . I told him Mario actually had a nice career at NC State and had an off the chart combine .

Combine Tips From Mario Williams: Don't Say Mike Shanahan's Questions Are Dumb

I did email the author and asked him about that odd paragraph. I will let you know if I got a response.

As for my old blog posts having someone else's byline on them, I was told by the Chronicle staff that there was no way to fix that. Their blog software is pretty rudimentary, and at some point they are going to have to upgrade all of it because in comparison to their competitors, it is pretty ugly and basic looking.

In small letters at the bottom, it says that entry was posted by me.

The funny thing was that when I first started blogging, I wanted to do it without my name or picture on the byline. They said that they couldn't do that, because they are a newspaper, and a newspaper is all about accuracy and standing behind what you write.
But of course, the irony all my old posts now have someone else's name and picture on them. Good thing I spent so much time putting them together for no pay, and now no credit.
It isn't TH's fault. I can't imagine he is fond of having posts about cute Texans stuff to wear having his name on them.
If memory serves me correctly, we talked about this last summer when the change happened. I firmly believe the chron cares as much about credibility as say the NY times and their fake reporters.

I agree here.

I here people who act so shocked that Mario has turned into a good player. Hello, he was a top 3 pick regardless of what we did. Several GMs have came out and said they had Mario #1 on their draft board too.
