    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Broncs will be OK, though, having grabbed Sanchez.

    Conditional pick is worthless anyway.

    But I have no idea why they even traded for him. At least RG3 has upside.

    Not sure, but if I had to guess it's really just about securing a back-up QB with a significant amount of NFL playing time under his belt. Denver is obviously a defensive team. Particularly with (who I assume will be) your second-string QB, you want a guy who isn't going to completely lose his shit and go deer in the headlights over playing in a real grown-up football game and looking across at JJ Watt, and will follow the game plan of handing off and throwing safe, short passes. I can't imagine they really see Sanchez as a starting QB solution.

    But Johnny Manziel's available . . .

    Rams traded up to #1. Need a shiny new qb in a new city.

    See above. Clearly Manziel's in LA because his signing is already a done deal.

    Meh. Not even the draft to do it. Risky, and expensive.

    Rams traded up to get a QB in a draft when both QB's are meh... But the Titans being the Titans, I expect them to blow their draft picks on a bunch of stiff's who can't play.

    great move by the Titans, slowly but surely shaping up a decent team. Rams are back at it with ruining any potential they had

    Rams haven't been this exciting since they got Joe Namath.

    Browns have more draft picks to draft more busts.

    At the end of the day, it's all about how the players do. Some guys will be busts just do to injury (sam Bradford and countless more).

    12 picks is a lot - more than 20% of your active roster. Picks in the top 100 are a different kettle of fish to me, then plain old picks.
