When do you switch over to WR?

We got this question recently, and I thought it would make for a good topic today, since all there is to talk about in the NFL these days is Tank Johnson, Trent Green’s scrambled eggs, and that moron Daunte Culpepper’s hearing.

People ask me how I can still have the Bear D #1 this year with Johnson gone.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
