Nick - it's all good. As you might imagine I actually get comments exactly like that so it's hard to "take a joke". But it's all good. I will wear thicker skin. And yes, Wake was very good.
Looks like someone can't take a joke hahah.... Obviously i value every persons opinion more than dog crap, calm down. and the only reason i said it was to MAKE you respond. you didn't in the comment section of the prediction article. Ultimately your pick was wrong, but you obviously were right about the Fins offensive line, very shaky, very very very. Sorry if you took me too seriously, i know sarcasm and jokes can come off the wrong way on the internet. And it was pretty funny tho. ;) Feel free to dish it back, I'm picking the fins every week (no i dont think they'll win them all but i do think they can beat any team on their schedule). I can take it...I'm a ball buster, feel free to bust mine when you see fit.

Stay classy Nick. Seriously. Your insight will be missed.
Well don't you look like a fool, not talking about Cam Wake. I told you, the Dolphins front 7 was much more of a force than the Browns. Nice pick, not. please don't respond to this because i value your opinion less than my dog's bodily waste.
should i start daryl richardson or darren mcfadden?
Say Andrew! Where have you been? My Vikings sports mind needs to feed with your quality writing. Adios Amigo.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm a huge fan of your work on Bleacher Report. I find myself on the site at least 3-4 times a day, so I just wanted to say thank you for all the entertaining reads.
I wanted to share this article with you on Athletes Who Played Two Sports, because I thought it would be right up your ally.

Anyways, keep up the good work. You'll always have a fan in me.
@Andrew: Everybody is crapping on the Steelers just because they have one bad year, and they had an aging roster before the draft, now that the draft is over, they have younger players on the team and people still are low on them. I don't understand you people, one minute you guys are criticizing the Steelers because they are old, and now that they got more young guys, you guys say now they have too-much inexperience. You experts are completely unbelievable. Also everybody is hoping on the Bengal Bandwagon Because they have Atkins, and Green but everybody forgets that Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis are choke artists when it comes playoff time. Do people realize that Lewis has never won a Playoff game as a Head coach? I'm not saying that the Steelers are going to have a winning record next year, I have my doubts like any fan, but my god its not a guarantee that they are guaranteed to be terrible next year either. Also people point out that losing Mendenhall and Wallace is a big deal but the only thing wallace was usefull for was going deep that it, your not counting on him to run a variety of routes are counting on him in the clutch, and Mendenhall was A hole as evident by him not being there for the Charger game. Both Wallace and Mendenhall were cancers to this team judging by their me first attitudes, such as when Wallace said "When the ball isn't thrown my way I lose focus.". As for our offensive line, As long as Decastro, Pouncey, Foster, Adams, and Gilbert stays healthy we should be fine but that is a big IF they stay healthy. All we need to do to shore up depth on the O line is sign a few camp bodies for depth, or bring in Max Starks, and we will be fine as far as O line is concerned.
Hello Andrew, first of all I am huge fan of the bleacher report! I am a Packer fan, and I know that they have many issues that they have to fix. However, it just seems that when the Packers loose they are automatically pegged as the worst team in the NFL. Every team has strengths and weakeness, even teams like the Patriots and 49ers. To me it just seems like when the Packers win, people sing their praises, but when they loose they are scum. For example, everyone is pumping up Colin Kaepernick and the 49ners, but if they loose no one will point out their weaknesses. Everyone will be putting him and the team on the highest thron; the same for Brady and the Patriots. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers troubles seem to be magnified. Once the Packers strengthen their weak areas I believe they will be an even better team. What do you think?
P.S. Sorry for the long post, just interested in your opinion! Thanks
