So much this. Good for them, but passing league + running back= horrible business move.

so stupid when people say this.

even the pass heaviest teams still run 40% of the time. plus, we're talking about forte and rice, two rbs that are huge in the runnin game.

when you let players like forte, rice, etc... walk, thats a horrible business move.

I don't think that Rice contract is too bad actually, considering how much the Ravens use him.

I am not really a fan of giving big money to RBs but Rice and Forte do so much as all around backs that I have no problem with either deal

plus they are only 4 years

It's really not stupid. Yeah running takes up 40% of the game. But recent memory has showed up that these guys are easilllly replaceable and last a very short amount of time. The difference between ray rice and an averge RB is a fraction of the difference between a great and average qb.

If you're a fan of the BROWNS, EAGLES, LIONS, REDSKINS, or the PACKERS. I was just given a load of old football stuff by an elderly neighbor, and he handed me near mint 1963 official team photos. He told me to find people to take care of it, so if you want one, just quote me. I'll send it out completely free, as long as you take care of it.

What is this stuff you speak of? I have a lot of family that are huge Packers and Lions fans. And this could possibly become good gifts.

So I can't find any news on it myself because my sidekick is a POS but does anyone happen to know what's going on with Mike Wallace? I'd hate to see him hold out because they didn't gvee him big money. I'm sure the Rooney's will get him locked up eventually.

no news because talks hit a standstill late last week.

theyre still optimistic theyll get a deal in place by the 25th and get him in camp. if they dont, hell just probably sit out training camp.

hes not up against a deadline today though, so no news.

Alright thanks. It'd be a damn shame if things went south with him, ya know? If he does holdout though, that could be a huge negative.

From one Phillies fan to another, you've got it. Just PM me a shipping address whenever, I'll ship it out first thing tomorrow.

Just PM me a shipping address so I can send it out tomorrow! I'm so glad to have found good homes!

Well a lot of it is just pennants, old cards, buttons, stuff like that. I think I may separate it all by team soon.

1) Jeffery had trimmed down even before the draft.

2) I pray that Nike "Skilled in Every Position" shirt comes in women's sizes. lol

I have a Browns 1963 team photo with Jim Brown in it. I'm just trying to find it a good home, free of charge, if you'd like it, let me know!
