    $8m guarantee will help soften the disappointment for him. I don’t blame him for taking this deal

    Something definitely stinks, but it’s not like he was getting interests from other teams

    Why do you hate Big Al so much?.I love patriots that fought for our country, I salute him for his courage, and he will always be one of my Favorite Players ( even though he sucked the last couple of years ) ...One of my Sons is in the Military, my Dad served in WWII, many family members in, or were in... Captain America? Do you hate the people who defend our Country?

    Good for Big AL he got at a minimum $8 million to the old bank account.

    Signing still makes no sense to me, Ravens like to run, AL V is not a good run blocker

    Of course I respect people who defend our country. The problem became when Al couldn't differentiate that he's now being paid millions to be apart of a team that's made up primarily African Americans. He couldn't listen to his teammates and let his view which was the minority in that locker room to the side for the betterment of the whole team.

    Like I said I know for a fact how he acted here isn't going to fly in the Ravens locker room. So it's going to be funny to watch.

    You should save your breath trying to reason with that guy, he complains about everything, and tries to create controversy when there is none.
    And i salute your brave son.

    If Big Al was so honorable wouldn't he just retire? I mean there's NFL fans that have quit watching the sport over the kneeling. Yet, he's willing going to an organization that kneeled. That's like the Steelers fans who quit watching because another team kneeled. Or going hey, the Steelers didn't kneel and the Ravens did so I'm going to be a Ravens fan now. Seems a little ass backwards, no?

    There's nothing to see here. If it was such a deal breaker, then why sign him? AV is not going to kneel, no way in hell. I'm sure Baltimore is aware of that. Why would it be honorable for him to retire? Doesn't he have as much of a right to earn money in the league as those that do kneel as a form of protest? This is some big time Keystone Pretzel logic.

    Ok, lets not dive into the kneeling thing for the gazillionth time.

    Thats mainly for @SDOT

    Do you ever post anything thats not designed to wind people up? Getting tiresome.

    SDOT. I served 24 years in the military. I find your comment disrespectful in the extreme. Just thought you'd like to know my opinion.

    Which comment? Not my intention. I respect those who served our country. I'm just seeing a lot of hypocrisy from Big Al.

    Probably best to just leave this one alone ..People who see kneeling as disrespect to the troops will probably always see it that way..People who see kneeling as a way to protest peacefully will probably always see it that way...AV is his own man and I respect his right to view it however he sees fit..I may or may not agree with his view , but he has the right to it and the right to play with any Team that wishes to sign him..But back to the Football part AV is a better fit for a running QB system ..Football 101 really it's a lot easier to block for a QB the Defense doesn't know where he will be than a QB who is in 1 spot and is no threat to escape or move from that spot...

    The DE'S start crashing the OC starts calling boots..The DE starts looping then it's zone read QB cutting it up inside and so on..

    I normally don't post that much on here, but I think it is appropriate to do so tonight.

    SDOT, your comment is way off base. You should apologize to Big Al and to all members, active and non active, of our Armed Forces.

    God bless you all for serving our great country.

    Do you really expect SDOT to ever let anything go? I know I can be relentless, but I'll at least drop some things until someone else brings them up again.

    That said, I'm not sure he wrote anything that disrespected veterans. He disrespected one veteran, and even then it wasn't Villanueva's service that he was talking about.

    I've got great respect for veterans in general and Villanueva in particular, but I can't say I was thrilled with the way he hung his teammates out to dry that day. The team made a decision together, then he chose to ignore that decision. I get why he did it, but I can also understand why some of his teammates would have been pissed, and rightfully so.

    What you don't say about a Running Qb...Football 101 ...is while the Defense doesn't know where the Qb will be, neither does the O- line. How many time is the Oline flagged for holding because they don't know where the Qb is. A nice block can turn into a hold real quick by where the Qb is positioned.
