Goodell needs to be taken down a peg IMO. He's power crazy.
Thank you very much. I avoid many of the Bountygate threads mainly because I just don't have the energy to fight and argue in them, however, it's a great point. Even amongst all this, during those seasons we were far from a hardly "dirty" team. Like Joe Vitt said, we got punished for the spoken word more so than the clenched fist and the fact that we ignored the warnings and kept doing it. While as a team, we do deserve to be punished but I don't think one person can really mention an incident in which we specifically target a player with specific hits to specific body parts. It just didn't happen.
The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''
