Think that trade will benefit all concerned.

Dunno Seanie donít think he has anything left, and Cards have terrible O line.

Exactly. I'd have been happier if they traded for a proven O Lineman that might stop Carson Palmer's life insurance paying out.

I'm pretty sure he has more juice left than Chris Johnson. And that's not even close.

I may have more juice left than Chris Johnson. I'm not sure he's that much of an upgrade though. If they get a couple of OLine guys back he might be useful.

Ellington is the most dangerous of the backs at the moment. Mind you that's like saying the tallest pygmy.

Yeah, we'll see. The o-line is very bad which limits the upside of AP alright. I think he'll do fine, he was a bad fit in New Orleans.

I see Aidan Murray's young lad Patrick is kicking for the Buccs again. Murray played for Monaghan according to Hogan Stand.

 I saw that, I don't remember Aidan playing for Monaghan, certainly not for any meaningful length of time. His 2 brothers Ciaran (ROI physio nowadays) and Brendan were long time county stalwarts with Ciaran in particular one of our all time greats..

College is class. I watched a bit of it, Clemson lost their QB and they just kept making daft mistakes. That really opens it up now. You'd still imagine they'll be there if they can get Brooks back, and win out. They lost at home to Pitt last year.

Broken collarbone. It was a pretty late hit too.
