What is Nikki doing these days? She was somehow connected with the team last year, but didn't see her around this past season. A great team player, strong on defense, and made good decisions, I hope she's still connected to the game.

That's cool. I guess that means she's settled down in the area at least for the time being. One of my best friends was her high school basketball coach, he's probably got some information to share. I honestly thought she could have added more value to a pro-team or the coaching profession than almost anyone (WBB) who's donned the purple and gold.

I think she is an elementary school teacher, not sure but thought I was told that a while ago.

Looks like former Dukes LS Derek Hart is getting a shot in Green Bay...

Word.
Long snapping has to be one of the best long term jobs in the NFL. You can't get legally hit at the LOS and you play an exhausting 15% of the game.

Heck, I bet its less than 10% (about 128 plays in an NFL game in 2016). How many FG, PAT, and punt snaps on avg per game? 8-10? Even if you're making the NFL rookie minimum salary, just looked up for 2017 its 465k..For about as much exertion as a kicker...Course you have to be able to snap the ball with pinpoint precision into an area about the size of a large mailbox, from up to 15 yards, with velocity, every time. And no one notices or mentions you (outside the players/coaches) unless you screw up.

How did Earl play ? Final score looks ugly but hoping he had a decent game.

I watched some of the game (have 2 Eagles on my fantasy team...Ertz + Blount). The Cardinals are pretty bad all around without David Johnson (also on my fantasy team). Can't comment on Earl's performance, but their running game was crap and like normal QB Palmer was running for his life on almost every drop back. So, I'd imagine the grade for all of the Zona OL's was pretty poor.

On the flip side, Josh Wells is having a good season for the surprising Jags. Great to see.

RE: Pro Dukes
After the Giants terrible start and all of their injuries, hopefully Khalid will get a shot at the practice squad. They're going to have to shuffle some things around.

Interesting that Rashard was cut (again) from the PS on Oct 10th only to be re-signed to the PS by Philly today.

Went to the Iowa at Northwestern game yest, they do a hell of a job keeping the crowd going and entertained amidst timeouts, commercials, etc... one thing that was cool was a nice jumbotron rundown of active NW alums that are in the pros ...great graphic and people were pumped. Maybe its time for JMU to do this

That's how ECU does their pre-game hype video and it was really cool. Helps they have so many legendary players but it would be a great idea for the Dukes too!
