Latrell Sprewell. Sheed was a weed smoking player that had a urinal in his bedroom according to Cribs.

True, although I'm not sure being "a weed smoking player" is the most useful way to distinguish Wallace from Sprewell.

As a Skins fan it pains me to say this, but it looks like Dallas got the best two rookies. Of course, it doesn't hurt to play behind the best o-line in football.

Is Frank Gore the most anonymous superstar ever? He is rarely discussed as one of the best running backs in the game, but he is ninth on the all-time rushing list and climbing.

Really? I don't really think of him as an under-the-radar guy. Just last night when I had the Colts-Texans game on in the background I heard the commentators raving about him -- and that's now that he's clearly not quite the player he was when he was younger.

He's popular here in Miami because he went to school here. But he hasn't had a gaudy number season like Arian Foster or AP or omgcj2k , and perhaps that's why. But to your point, he's been consistently good for long enough that he's tracking along with the all time greats.

He also deserves some kind of fantasy award for being so consistent and durable. I don't remember him ever approaching a top Fantasy RB season, but his floor was very high every single year

He's durable, reliable, and has been around for awhile. I think he gets credit for his quality, but maybe not as much hype as the guys who have led the league in rushing in a particular year. Plus when the 49ers were a top NFC team, a lot of the press focused on their defense.

Burfict needs to go for the good of the game. What's the hypothetical when you criminally charge a baseball or hockey player for intentionally going after someone with the bat/stick? That's burfict.

On a completely separate note, Rasheed needs to be like snoop dog and get a weed endorsement deal.

More total robbery in Seattle. That was an absolutely horrible non-call. I am coming to the conclusion that it is rigged or the officials really are intimidated in Seattle.

How is the QB controversy in Dallas really a controversy? If the Cowboys are winning and Prescott is playing well, you keep starting him. "Starter doesn't lose his job to injury" is the dumbest "rule" in all of sports.

It's easy - you say Tony isn't going to play until he is 100%. Tony wont be 100% until they lose, then he will be 100% and ready to go! Only way for Jerry Jones to save face.

I'd start Romo once he's ready. Clearly Dak is the future so even if things work out for Romo they release him at the end of the year. If not, they restart Dak.

I assume you're saying you think playing Romo ahead of Dak gives the Cowboys a better chance to win right now (or as soon as Romo is ready?)

If I were JJ, I'd keep Romo benched to prevent further injury and to prevent any injury guarantee from kicking in. Then, I'd drop Romo after this year and just swallow the $20M dead cap charge. If he's still on the team for 2017, you're looking at one player taking up like $25M in cap space that''ll most likely be your backup QB.

That's what they get for having such a Fk'ed up cap that they had to restructure his deal like 3 times and kept pushing it back.
