Peterson and the Bills (and other perfect fits)

It’s funny how things can change so quickly in the weeks leading up to the draft. Stocks can rise like the dot-com’s of the late 90s – or plummet like those same stocks in 2000 (March of 2000, to be exact, and I know because I have gained back only one sleeve of the shirt I lost that month). There’s a lot of luck involved in terms of where a player goes, especially for a RB.

    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick.
