That's what a franchise QB will cost in a draft but it's also the risk you take in hopes that the prospect works out.
Yes, but they did take some flak for it last year when Sam Bradford struggled. I think the Rams got the better of the deal, but if Sam Bradford never becomes what they thought he'd be, it would be atleast fair to question the trade. (Even though they could get another QB with the 2 1st picks they'll have for the next 3 or 4 years)

Eh, I don't like when they do stuff like that. It was a great game, but it really wasn't all that significant to the NFL as a whole. Put it on display at the Linc for sure. The HOF? Not so much. If this was a playoff game, maybe I could see it, but it was a relatively low-impact regular season game. Didn't clinch anything or eliminate anyone, no records (other than team records) were broken. It just snowed. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the game, but that's about as far as it goes for me.

It was the single season rushing record in a game for the Eagles. I can see why it's there... if there's a section specially for the Eagles that is.

There have been between 60-70 200+ yard rushing games in the history of the league

That's harder to come by than no-hitters.

I'm no math whiz, but factoring in the number of games played in an NFL season (16 per team) vs. number of games played in an MLB (162 per team), I think the frequency of 200+ yard rushers is much higher than no hitters. Maybe a math whiz can do the work?

Major League Baseball was also founded about 50 years before the NFL. No hitters are definitely rarer than 200+ yard rushing games.

Certainly, and I'm glad Shady is getting some recognition for it.

I don't think the McCoy exhibit is something that will always be there. It will probably be gone and put into storage after the season. I'm sure they take things from every game each week and have a little current events section there.

This is my best shot, the game numbers aren't exact but they are pretty close. It was also difficult because of the schedule changes over the years.

Since 1970 NFL merger:

About 11,000 games / 100 individual 200+ yard performances = 110 games per 200+ yard performance. For reference an NFL season including playoffs is 267 games. Likelihood of seeing a 200+ yd rushing performance= 0.91%

MLB 1901 - June 13, 2012:

181,921 games / 234 no hitters = 778 games per no hitter. For reference an MLB season including playoffs is about 2468 games. Likelihood of seeing a game with a no hitter = 0.13%

In conclusion, a 200+ rushing performance is about 7x more likely to happen than a no hitter.

Semi finals in fantasy and due to injuries I need help at flex. I have Donald Brown but may put Cooper in. I already have shady and Foles in, too risky to have so much on the Eagles ?

I went ahead and went on Oregon's website where they explain the zone read. It was pretty fascinating. I understand far better what Chip is doing now. It's clear enough that the formations tell you what you need to know is coming-- and Chip happily shows his plays (unless he's pretending the OZR is the IZR -- and runs a mid lin ZR).

At its core- it's 2 formations run the majority of the time, then options based on the defense's over-enthusiasm or if the LB freezes. Gives the RB tons of options. Shady should be happy.
