Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

The latest news has New England playing Tebow at QB only and not at any other positions as has been speculated. If that's the case, looks like archeryguy1701's correct. The Belichick and his coaches are taking a gamble and hoping they can develop him into a viable NFL QB.

McGahee to no surprise released by the Broncos. I've been pretty high on Montee Ball in terms on RL and fantasy production, anyone in Denver know more about this guy?

So Aaron Hernandez should probably find a safehouse and lay low for a while. He's wanted for murder.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

Yeah, that story is headed south in a hurry. Latest reports involve someone noting that a cleaning crew left his house the night before cops searched the place, and then when asked to turn over security camera footage and his cell phone, cops were handed a couple of intentionally smashed electronics. If he's totally innocent, he's choosing an interesting way of showing it.

Optimistically, best I can hope for at the moment is that he was THERE, but not the one that shot. Even that's not great, but pretty obvious that he's in this one pretty deep. Drug deal gone bad?

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

The 19th anniversary of OJ Simpson's 405 car chase was the other day. I watched a video on ESPN with footage from back then, and Al Michaels (a friend of OJ's) was quoted at the time as saying these are not the actions of an innocent man.

Hernandez seems to be in this same situation.

Where have we seen this type of situation before??? Funny there's no apparent outrage from public opinion directed toward Hernandez. Maybe he gets a pass for some reason.

Aaron Hernandez is doing everything in his power to remove all reasonable doubt as to his actions. This is truly baffling.

I've seen some outrage directed towards Hernandez, in the vein of "what a fucking idiot, why would you screw up a good, well paying life" to "he's nothing but a gangbanger, this idiot was bound to slip up sooner or later".

What makes you think he would be getting a pass and for what reason?

Well, Aaron Hernandez isn't that big a star (if you don't really follow the NFL, you probably have no idea who he is) and he hasn't done anything spectacularly attention getting in public, unlike OJ. He might be in the midst of the greatest display of self-destructive stupidity ever, but unless he blows up his house, no one will really notice.

That was fast. Really fast.

Seen on Twitter: Even the Patriots have a faster release than Tim Tebow.
