Exactly, imagine if Clausen went in the top 10, never mind 1st or 2nd like Russel and Leaf did. At least you can recover from a 2nd round QB backfiring, whereas the Chargers are arguably still struggling 13 years later.

EDIT: just cause I forgot, I went and double checked what the Chargers traded to Arizona to move from 3rd to 2nd in that draft. Here's a quote from wikipedia.

At least Clausen just cost you a 2nd round pick, but actually may have helped y'all big time, what if he had tore s*** up last year and won 7 or 8 games? Then you could say bye bye to Newton.

Right, so I'm off to San Francisco next Thursday, first time in the states and all, anyone have any suggestions for things I don't wanna miss while there? Already planning on going on a tour of Alcatraz, touristy as it may be.

Screw stats. Dude is a winner.

As a QB that's all that matters. As a Steelers fan you should know that.

North Carolina is far, far away from the West Coast... to the chagrin of many California area hockey fans wishing to see the player of their dreams, Chad LaRose, in person.

Haha, I know, luckily I will be going to North Carolina as well, and even managed to time it so that I can catch the game against Ottawa in the RBC. Just thought someone on here might have been before

Actually I was onboard with him last year at Auburn (one of a few teams I like so I watched as much as possible) but I just didn't think his game would translate to the pros. Didn't think he had the necessary accuracy to make it work. But so far, despite the Panthers record, he's looked better then about anyone expected.

Needed to post this...

On NHL 12, I'm playing against the Blues... As a filler thing, to make the game more "realistic," the PBP and color guy usually have a set conversation about the team each time they play (ie. Carolina's playoff chances lie with Ward, Edmonton's glutton of good prospects, etc). Here's the one for the Blues:

Gary Thorne: "Bill, in St. Louis you've got a guy at captain that's a bit unheralded."
Bill Clement: "Yeah Gary, Eric Brewer won't score all that many goals, but he's a great stay at home defenseman, and he's a decent mover of the puck that can put at least a couple of points on the board."
GT: "Do you think he's the right choice for captain of the Blues at this time?"
BC: "Absolutely Gary, Eric Brewer is the heart and soul of the Blues. At some point in the near future they'll probably want their recent 1st overall pick Erik Johnson to take the captaincy, but until then, Brewer is absolutely the right choice."

For those of you who don't play video games or are otherwise confused, this game was released in September.

Mission accomplished.

(ps - unlike this delicious pizza, the thread is past its expiration date)
