Multi-dimensional is never a bad thing.
Harrison looked terrific at the end of the year last season. He showed speed to get to the perimeter, but I was especially impressed with his ability to run between the tackles.

Running back is actually a spot that we are pretty stacked in. Rookie Montario Hardesty is a guy that the coaches have been VERY high on. He tweaked his knee during training camp and will be out for a couple of weeks (precautionary), but some have speculated that he and Harrison are going to make up our one-two punch at RB.

Then, throw in James Davis -- a guy we drafted out of Clemson in '09 -- who looked excellent in the preseason and the first few games before suffering a season-ending injury in around the third game, Peyton Hillis, who we got from Denver in the Brady Quinn trade, and Cribbs who plays RB much of the time...

Lots of weapons and a very good left-side of the line with Joe Thomas, Steinbach, and Alex Mack at center.

Yeah, man... That is the one scary part about training camp. It is a lot of fun to get that close to the players and to really see a practice up-close and personal, but I basically hold my breath the whole time... Many times, the worst injuries for your team come in training camp when guys aren't really in shape yet and are trying to get back into rhythm.

The Clippers are in a big market, they just own a small percentage of the big market that they are in. If that makes sense..

And to ukballer..American Football ain't hard to pick up for a foreigner. Just try to watch full games and the rules & stratergies become much clearer. That's what I did and I like to think I could have an educated discussion with an American NFL fan nowdays.

Default Re: NFL - Teach a noob

here's some fun facts about championships and teams

The 49ers have 5

The Cowboys have 5

very respectable numbers

but both are sitting in second place (<--for their fans)

you might be asking at this point, "If they're tied in second place, who is in first?".

That is an excellent question, the answer:







remember though... no one likes the Patriots.. (I'm serious)

Just having some fun with it, don't get mad at me

Thanks man, and thanks everyone else for all the help!

Not going to hop on any bandwagons yet, and you'll probably all laugh, but I remember watching an NFL game when I was about 5 years old, and one of the teams was the Oakland Raiders, so I kinda have a soft spot for them. Even though I have no idea who any of their players are. I guess Madden will help me a little bit when it comes next week haha.

I quite like the Bengals too. Not basing it on anything other than Chad Ochochinco makes me laugh.

I clearly have much still to learn, but thanks again everyone. Hope I'll be able to start contributing here some more sometime.

Also, if your city/state has multiple teams.. you MUST choose A team.

i.e. Giants, not Jets

Fortunately I don't have a city/state being from England.

So I guess I have free choice! Though like I said, got a soft spot for the Raiders.

Yeah, I read up on Russell. Wow, just..wow.
