I'm thinking more selfishly. Harvin and Boldin enter our division, Amendola is looking like an Eagle (or maybe a Raven?), Gibson is definitely gone...Bradford needs some serious help. Our three receivers after that are Chris Givens, Brian Quick and Austin Pettis.
The selfish side of me likes the Harvin trade. Not only does Harvin leave the NFC North, but I have him on my fantasy keeper league team and I think he'll put up more points with a halfway decent QB throwing to him.

The Vikings got pretty good compensation for Harvin, but WR was a position they were already weak at. I see some parallel to their Randy Moss trade years ago. Once again the deciding factor seems to personality issues rather than talent.

I feel so sorry for Vikings fans. Not only do they lose Harvin, but the straw that broke the camel's back was Harvin going to management and complaining that Ponder is a terrible quarterback. Holy moly.

I don't even understand how something like this happens. The only way this is possible is that these guys are older and not tech-savvy and don't understand how calls are routed/connected. Especially when one of them says he's been calling all day, and suddenly gets through on that same number, but the other says it must have been a wrong number.
Those pranksters are going to be in a world of hurt, legally speaking, very soon. Assuming Dominik was in Florida, there's a tremendous amount of exposure on their part, as Florida is a two-party consent state when it comes to wiretapping / eavesdropping.

So is Fitzpatrick going to get another job? He could be a capable backup.

Then again, not surprised at all.

Guess the rumors that he and Belichick didn't get along anymore were true.

It's like shuffleboard. Or bocce ball. Or darts. Or really any game where the goal is to get closest to the target.

Denver plays at New England in the 2013 season. Will Smoothie have a nervous breakdown during that game?

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

Worst part of Welker deal is that it was only 2/$12. Pats apparently just decided to get younger, as they signed Amendola this evening for same 5/31, so about same money, and only 10M guaranteed. Similar player, although Amendola has been hurt lately. Things like a broken collarbone, though, so shouldn't be lasting injuries or show any risk going forward.

Not thrilled, but will see how it works out.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

Did Flacco's elite contract completely screw up the Ravens that much? I thought you were supposed to blow up losing teams, not Super Bowl champions.

As for Urlacher and the Bears, I think he'll re-sign with them for less than he's asking.

I don't think it was his contract (or at least not exclusively the contract). However, while they were willing to pay whatever it took to re-sign Flacco, they seemed to believe the others were worth only a certain price and other teams were willing to overpay (in their minds) so they let them go.

I'm really bummed to see Amendola go. He plays all-out every play, and will do whatever it takes to move the ball downfield. He plays without fear, which is partially why he's hurt so often.

The Rams receiving problems are getting worse by the day...
