Hmm.. They say they want him at running back (or he says that), but he sounds like he'd be better off as some sort of H-Back or Fullback or something. Fullbacks generally block for running backs, but are involved in the passing game sometimes, too. I guess thats more of the H-Back thing. Knowing nothing about this guy, I can see him (in my head) catching passes in the flat, and then taking off down the sideline.
He usually plays fullback for Parramatta and the NSW Origin side, but I don't know how well that translates to the fullback role in your game. Sideline running is something you see a lot of wingers do, and he has played wing before...
Oh man, Bills.. I don't know how to feel about anything.
Last night, or yesterday, the Bills traded with the Eagles: Kiko Alonso for LeShaun McCoy. There aren't many times when one would feel tentative about getting one of the best running backs in the league (ran for 1900+ last year?), but we just lost our most promising Defensive youngin' (though he did spend last year on the IR with an ACL injury). Extend that to "ok, so why are the Eagles OK with this trade?" They freed up a lot of cap space, so I guess that could be the main reason, but do they know something about McCoy's health that we don't? I guess the Bills didn't NEED Alonso as they still had the best Defense in the league last year without him, but again, one of our most promising prospects.
No Draft Picks were mentioned in the trade though, so we've still go April to look forward to. I guess I'm leaning towards a Linebacker now (since Kiko is gone..).
Am I crazy? Someone talk me through this. Its hard to objectively look at the Bills' moves as a fan.
The Bills will be the Yankees of the NFL this year. Big money, small results.
The problem is simple, though. No one wants to play in Buffalo (the city). It's a shitty city next to a shitty lake.
When Buffalo collectively moves, falls into Lake Erie, or simply vanishes from the planet, then the Bills will be more attractive.
But anyways, I'll be in Pittsburgh this weekend for a critical NHL matchup on Saturday between the Penguins and Bruins. Bruins need to keep winning to avoid a charging Senators and Panthers teams to keep their wild card playoff spot. The Penguins need the win to try and catch the Islanders, which is a long shot. Should be an exciting matchup!
Honest to god shocked that the Braves are 5-1 to start the season. I would have figured they'd be 1-5 at best. Sure it is way early in a long season and there is plenty of time for my well-grounded pessimism to take hold but I'll take this for now.
They are in Tampa right now, facing the Lightning.
No, not THAT Lightning.
We're into the second period, and the Wings are up 2-1. Keeping my fingers crossed for a win. Detroit hasn't exactly had the best season this year, but I hope they at least don't embarrass themselves in the playoffs. They have a legacy to uphold.
