So Big Ben, who has struggled all year on the road despite the competition and is banged up, is just going to magically find his groove and torch us? Anything's possible, but using the Seahawks game, which was ages ago and came shortly after we had to adjust after the Jamie Collins trade, is pretty dumb on your part.
USED DRAFT-TEK , WALTERS, DRAFT-SITE rankings as a general guide. Been trying to catch as many college games as possible. HUGE Game for Clemson over Alabama raising the stock of several players.
SR bowl,Combine, & Pro-days will be fun to watch.
