    The start of everything

    121 years ago today, Pudge Heffelfinger accepted $500 to play in a football game. 

      And pro football was born.

    $500 one hundred and twenty one years ago!  Damn sure he didn't get that kind of crazy money from Belichick.

    Ed Reed is more than a year younger than Tom Brady.

    If you said Tony Gonzalez (almost 38) or Adam Vinatieri (40) I'd have been more inclined to chuckle

    Gonzalez and Vinitari are still playing at a high level, Ed Reed is gassed and on the wavier wire.

    I still think he would add some athleticism and experience ( not to mention good hands) to the secondary.  Its a no-brainer.

    Belichick will Sign Ed Reed...  .  Right after he clears waivers.   Period.

    Book it Danno.

    Just a classic name, but Not A Shot will tell the board the modern pro game was invented in Europe when Robin Hood was bored from shooting apples of off stumps.



    Ha ha ha.

    I remember that thread.

    Boy, did you look stupid in that one.
