    Is Binghamton Bills country?

    For a few years the Jets had training camp in Cortland, which isn’t far from Binghamton. They probably knew there was a fan base to draw from. Bandwagoners are everywhere, thus the Pats stuff. As a Utica area person, I can attest to the fact that much of the fan base here is split between Giants and Bills. I imagine in Binghamton the draw of the New York City teams is stronger. Also, the college crowd in Binghamton has a large New York City area contingent.

    Vlad Ducasse...NFLs best pass blocker?

    Excellent. Thank you. You point out that the TE and RB not blocking or picking up blitzes correctly are as big, or bigger, problems than the basic O-line play. That’s an interesting observation that I haven’t seen discussed. You also point out that rookie quarterbacks don’t always understand or trust the pocket. I hope that can be fixed with coaching and experience.

    It sounds like her sport is pretty worthwhile. She should be encouraged.

    Where’s John Cocktosten been lately? He hasn’t posted on here in a while.

    If I Had $1,000,000

    I’ve heard this argument many times. I paid off my house a few years ago, but I don’t pay cash for cars. Those zero interest car loans are too good to pass up, even for a person as debt averse and nervous as I am.
  9. Next year Beane will have a ton of draft picks and a ton of money. That will be his chance to build a winning team. I have very little faith that he will choose and spend wisely. Am I a pessimist or a realist?

    Where’s @Bocephuz? I always enjoyed his informal, non-expert, highly informative, complete, and easy to follow breakdowns of line play. No sarcasm intended. I’m being serious.

    I could too. My wife, on the other hand...

    If I Had $1,000,000

    $1,000,000 isn’t $1,000,000 anymore. You really need $10,000,000 to have $1,000,000 these days.
  13. My friends at work are asking if I’m going to “do a Vontae.” They all know I’m going to retire in the spring, and they’re wondering if I’ll wait until there’s an all-day meeting with a customer, and I’ll go out to lunch and never come back. Sounds like a plan!

    SNF football, Cows and Giants

    I don’t like Dallas, but I’ll take a little less abuse from Giants fans if they win.
