    You need to be logged in to see what it links to.

    Which means you need an account.

    Which means I don't see it.

    Crib sheet version?

    Not surprising. We ran Forte to the edge more times than not since our interior line was soft last year. After McFadden went down the Raiders turned their running attack inside the tackles. You don't break break as many tackles when you run right into someone instead of veering away from them.
    The legend of Doug Atkins was real:
    “Look, here’s some things I want you to remember,” Skornoski said. “Number 81 is Doug Atkins, he’s 6’9” and he weighs 265 pounds. He said DON’T CUT HIM, and if he falls down, help him up and say nice play, Mr. Atkins.”

    “Well, I (Curry) started to laugh,” Curry said.

    “Kid, this is not a joke, and I’m not kidding you now, because if you cut him, on his knees, the first thing he’s going to do is kill you, and then, he’s going to kill me.”

    Link works now. Maybe they were doing some site maintenance of some sort?
