    I believe the Rams have gotten the best of the quarterback deals that have been made up to now, IF Matthew Stafford can stay healthy.

    During drive by’s I could not help but notice some high schools are practicing as a team and looking like normal practices. These teams that are violating their city protocols will definitely have a big jump over teams and districts adhering to safe protocols if spring football games are OK’d.

    Can Tebow still play football? Denver needs a QB.
