    Like I said, Talib would be shadowing Torrey Smith, not Pitta.

    Hey James, you're right "hugely" is a word (my bad) as an adverb, per your link as in "hugely mistaken", so "Wilfork graded out hugely in the negative in Week 2" is correct with "graded out" as the verb and "hugely" as the modifying adverb. Still, I think it sounds rather awkward and works OK without "hugely". Maybe "Wilfork graded out predominantly in the negative in Week 2" would work better?

    Hi James. Thanks for checking about resultant compared to resulting in "Circumstances have changed in New England, however, and one of the few resulting silver linings ...". According to (B/R's official reference dictionary), the case for resultant here is as an adjective -- "following as a result or consequence". Resulting, as a noun, is "something that happens as a consequence; outcome". They are nearly identical by definition, but the difference is that I read "resulting silver linings" as a compound noun with "few" as the adjective rather than "few" and "resultant" both being adjectives. Don't know if that clarifies the matter, but you could probably make a case for either one.

    James, yes I'm Kyles dad and I am humbled by your request for an interview. I really don't want to draw any attention to myself. I only joined B/R just to support your comments in reference to Kyle's ability to play in the NFL. He's a very quiet young man off the field and very determined on the field. His dad should in no way add or subtract to his discipline. Whatever positon he plays, I know he holds nothing back and the family is always proud of him. Thanks again for your offer, and I wish you continued success! ,

    My article mentioned plays that were not simple drop-back passes... Not sure why you have chosen to have this discussion on our respective profiles. Agree to disagree.

    I thought the Giants throwing at the goal line against Green Bay was just as bad.

    No problem, James. Great work. And yes, I am a massive Celtics fan. Nice to see them pick it up after the slow start.
