Vernand seems to be a French word, according to this link.

Quote:
Vernand pourrait donc signifier le fort du bois sacré.
Which translates to: Vernand could thus mean the fort of crowned wood.

From here on, I'll refer to Vernand as Woody.

No matter how he spells his name, he will be able to push Davis. Double"D" will respond with a probowl year.

Don't think we can expect Pro Bowl numbers from Davis, though as a pair they may put up some impressive combined numbers. Just depends on how the carry ratio works out.

The key word being American.The sooner Americans realize this
and quit allowing polititions to seperate people into catagories
of race or religion the sooner we can come together as a
people and begin changes in our system that will benifit all
Americans.
Together we stand,divided we fall.(Or in this case,manipulated)

It's quite ok to cherish your heritage. I don't think that was a political statement.

It wasn't taken as a political statement.Ididn't mean
to infer that.I would just like to see all people come
together as As Americans.Double "D" has a promising
future in the NFL and his country should be proud,
we should also celebrate his accomplishments without bias.
And hopefully we Texan fans will be celebrating alot this
year and many to come.

We have a ton of non-American fans...they can be proud as well....not sure what that has to do with anything. This thread went downhill fast. Too much off topic ranting...I'm killing it.
