Awesome article today on the legends' perspectives on the whole injury realm of the game both during their careers and now. The Warren Moon perspective is one that gets overlooked by the extremists who largely advocate against football these days and was something I had previously never heard. Great seeing you on BR, bear down!
I read on Twitter that you selected Dez Bryant and Jordy Nelso as All-Pro receivers. According to your tweet, you said that you used a coin to pick the two of them because you did not look at Statistics. When I read this, my first thought was that you were making a point that whoever did not pick Brown, had to use a coin flip. On the other hand, if it is true that you used a coin flip to help you select the All Pro team, you should have your privilege of voting for the All Pro team and Hall of Fame removed from you.As a Steeler fan, any writer who was too lazy to look up stats or watch some game film to allow you to gain enough information to make an educated decision, would obviously never vote for Hines Ward or Jerome Bettis for the HOF. If you were making a point, I am sorry that I did not give you the benefit of the doubt. I have more thoughts on this, but I don't want to attack your intelligence if you were making a point. Because if you were making a point, it went over all of our heads and it shows how gullible we are.
Great story on Forsett and made even better with great writing style.
Fellow Falcon following you. Block from Proska. Need to get you on the radio full time! Cheers Dan!
