Just finished "Crucible of War" by Fred Anderson. Essential reading on the French and Indian War and how it set the stage for the American Revolution. Also, finished "Be Free or Die: the Amazing Story of Robert Smalls' Escape From Slavery to Union Hero." Amazing story about an amazing American many don't know about. Finally, Eric Foner's "Fiery Trial" about Abraham Lincoln and the issue of slavery. Great read. Just starting Alan Taylor's "Civil War of 1812" and "American Revolutions."

Sorry--I've been off for a few days.

My point is, there are different types of productivity and we've had success at making our TEs all-around performers, blocking as well as receiving. NFL teams seem to like this, which results in them picking them up. I also think that is why we continue to get good recruits.

A lot have bashed our TE use out here, often with reason. I'd love to see the Bucks getting more creative and using them in the passing game more, but it seems to be working for the players.

Remember all of that stickum Biletnikoff used to have all over his hands? I always wondered how sticky those footballs got during the games--not sure how often they changed them out back them.

He and Branch were great.

The situation has gone to pot. I believe there doobie some good players still around though. They need to keep Mary Jane out of the spotlight.

"Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change From Hawaii to Iraq" by Stephen Kinzer. Pretty damning book on America's attempts to change regimes for countries and the long term impact. Reading it for a San Antonio history book club meeting. I have never attended a book club before, so this will be interesting.

I think he ends up being a free agent. I've always liked Andy, and he has been a class act, but he tends to come up small in big games. I doubt he has much trade value.

Still, great team/community guy and he absolutely is great against over-matched teams, or when he gets a lead.

I always used to tell my troops that they needed to understand the difference between a mistake and a crime. I get it, you can say committing a crime is often the result of a mistake, but if guilty, this is a crime.
