    I think he think's he's better than Percy Harvin. He's got a good case.
    Of course. But that was HIS choice. He could have played out the tender year and become an UFA. He CHOSE not to. No one held a gun to his head.

    But as I said, he was asked a leading question and has shown recently that he needs a little more training in "media savvy".

    His choice was part of that hometown discount. I have no problem with his comment on Saturday. I PM you to explain further.

    Can you guarantee he would not get injured?

    Players have taken the risk before. Flacco and Wallace did last year and look how it turned out for them. Ridiculous deals.

    No guarantees in football. The scenario where he gets a much better contract after next year is based on HUGE ifs. He made the best move. $15 million in the bank no matter what happens tomorrow, even if he thinks he's worth just as much or more money than Percy.

    I said he could make the case he's better than Percy, but I don't think so. Percy in NY would be insane lined up next to Nicks. Percy has been catching balls from Chris Ponder. You can't tell me that has not affected his productivity. Russell is an upgrade, but neither one are Eli.

    And welcome back my friend. It is not the same without morehead.
    No one remembers who came in second.
