I would say he is at this stage:

followed by incorporation of strengthening exercises and sport-specific training. Return to overhead throwing is gradual and closely monitored by the physician overseeing the athlete’s care.

as we know he has been doing some light throwing.

No one is saying it is world class stuff, but if I walk into a Skyline, I will be happy by the time I walk out. There are also better Cincinnati-style chili parlors than Skyline.

He has a thing about the Super Bowl. His five-year ban from the Ohio State program ends next year, but he says he won’t go to Columbus until his team wins it.

“Win a Super Bowl first and go back. That’s probably the only time I’ll go back,” Pryor says. “Even if I win it when I’m 32. Whatever road I’ve got to take from here to get to that point.”

I wish this wasn't the case. I wish all Ohio State fans would welcome him back and allow him back. He was a great quarterback/ leader for Ohio State.

Correct me if I am wrong, but if the route had been run short of the line of scrimmage (i.e. about 1-2 yards shorter than where he caught it), there would have been no problem with the other WRs blocking down field.

Or would the pass have to be "backwards" as in a run play? I forget exactly what the rule allows for down field blocking.

Miller is more accurate throwing than Tebow. If healthy (that's always the thing with Miller), he would make a much better NFL QB than Tebow. I'd put his career trajectory more in line with Pryor; similar type of athleticism (speed/ agility compared to the "power" of Tebow) that could make for a great back-up/ spot starter at QB in the NFL.

That is right. The key phrase is proper guarding position, which can be achieved even by a player not initially guarding the player with the ball. Officials have to be more consistent with calling it correctly.

Palmer was just dropping bombs that season. That pass to C. Henry (RIP) was perfect. 

The Bengals almost beat the Steelers with Kitna; with the way Palmer was playing, there is no doubt in my mind that the Bengals would have won that game.

I feel bad for those souls that attended WVU games as well.

Duke Nukem was also pretty bad ass back in the day. 

And original Doom >>>> Doom 3 (apparently flashlights cannot be placed on guns in the future).
