    Old guys do that, and I understand what you mean, but the league has never has the amount of QB's like it does now with all the young guns coming and doing well. The CFL has jump leaps and bound in the last few years and with the new TV deal it can only get better. Not everyone can play in the NFL ,not enough teams, it seems at times NFL GM's think they are god like and never make a mistake. But one thing you do have to remember, it is the CFL not the NFL. I am not here to say it is a better league, just both are great to watch. And CFL fans love to see a CFL'er make the big league. Look at thigpen, made history in hamilton and now in miami. It is great to see.

    Maybe this should be moved to ''all other sports'' section, I would hate to see it get ugly.

    I have about 50 years of watching the CFL and it has always gone through cycles of high and low scoring. I wouldn't read anything into it more than that. As an example, some years ago the CFL leaned a little more toward hybrid LB/DB players (e.g. Chip Cox) and away from pure LB run stoppers. The result has been a decline in passing yards and an uptick in the running game. I get a sense that the NFL is now leaning toward more hybrids, especially in the 3-4 Ds, as the passing attacks get more sophisticated. As passing levels in the NFL have reached CFL levels, NFL Ds are going to have to make the same compensatory moves. Historically in both leagues there's an ebb and flow between D and O that sometimes span decades.

    Were also seeing a changing of the guard at QB with some outstanding play by backup QBs this year. Burris, Ray and Calvillo don't have much mileage left in their tanks. They're getting pretty immobile these days and without a good O-line they spend a lot of time picking rubber pellets out of their teeth. When these youngsters get handed the keys to the O, we may the beginnings of another shift.

    What's wrong Henry Burris...upset because you have shit stained comments that can't stand the acid test? You're really going to tell me AMcPherson is NFL material? The thread is dumb and maybe your IQ is so low, that you don't even see that. Put me on ignore, you little crybaby bitch. Please bore us to shitdom with another I blew Chad Pennington thread...

    Too late. I gave him his 4th, final, and very last warning 2 or 3 days ago.

    Everyone gets an early Xmas gift this year.

    The hammer has dropped.

    I'm not sure that 4 warnings from me, 2 or 3 from you, and I think even Bearstuff got him once or twice.... even after that... I'm not sure we can call it a "mean" streak.

    Maybe a "fed up to here" streak.

    He had changed the tone of the board -- there just isn't that much crap that goes on here, and when one person seems to be causing 90%, well, yeah, it's time.

    I'd hate to ruin Christmas. Maybe you can ban him again at Christmas just to commemorate the event?

    The best thing about banning Mr. D is that we no longer have a member who wants to squash all discussion. Isn't that the point of a messageboard?
