Stempniak signs with the Rags for 900k. I haven't done a lot of bitching this offseason but that's a deal the Penguins should have made. Very versatile player with sneaky skill. Would have been a good fit on the third line and wouldn't embarrass himself on the top 2.
Not in any hurry to sign the Stoner. Even at his best, he was a head case--if they had noticed, could've easily dropped a 15-yarder on him in the EZ during the Super Bowl. And that was always the trade-off, game-changers countered by bone-headed drops (on or off the field).
Harrison? Yes. Aside from the desire to see him in the correct uniform to finish his career, I think Jones is going to be a bust. At some point this season, we're going to need someone at OLB that can actually play, and he would be an improvement even at 36.
Maybe. I'm off that week, to celebrate/bemoan the dreaded 5-0, and because we're having our hardwoods refinished, so day trips only. Would love to see this class of rooks, more excited about them than any in a long time.
Meet up for some camp observations and brews after?
Anyone going to camp this year? Starts one week from today. I'm eager to see how many rookies can make it in the starting lineup. Hopefully Shazier and Tuitt can get up to speed.
Looking for Bell to continue the trend he started over the second half of the season. And hope Ben and the new WRs get on the same page quickly, work out the kinks and start game 1 sans the rust of years past.
And Germany it is. A well taken goal from Gotze. Have to say they were the best team, starting with the 4-0 Portugal mauling . Argentina had their chances, but were 2nd best for most of the match. IMO, it's a fair result of the match and the tourney.
