    Beginning of the end for Vikings GM Mike Lynn. I recall Walker, in his first game for Vikings, having one massive run on which he inadvertently threw off one of his shoes. That was as good as it got for him there, IIRC.

    People forget how valuable an elite RB used to be. These days they're practically interchangeable and are rarely drafted that high and if they struggle for a year can be had for a second or third round pick.

    I look at what teams had to trade to get guys like Faulk or Lynch. Then you see guys like Richardson (traded for a 1) who was supposed to be the best to come out in years, probably since AP, and he's been a disaster.

    There is a lot of great sports writing out there right now. Probably more than there ever has been.

    I think Faulk made a lot of coaches and GMs rethink what made for a top running back. Faulk was not just a great downhill runner, but he excelled as a pass catcher. Most of the top backs in the NFL are good pass catchers.

    Pass protection is the other think a back needs to be good at. Long story short: With the NFL currently a passing league, the best defenses have multiple players who are good at pass rushing to disrupt the QB, so the offense needs a back who can block pass rushers and pick up blitzes.

    This doesn't fit with his old man yells at cloud attitude.

    There is a ton of garbage out there. Writing written for writers.

    The Eric Dickerson trade was another big one

    The Rams got a No. 2 and a No. 4 for Bettis, who had a lot of productivity left.

    Most people though Bettis' best days were behind him, to the delight of my 1996 fantasy team.
