    Wow, things are slow. Soap opera threads staying on the front page for days. Brutal piling on of a poor, confused, (albeit, tight:D ) new member.
    Thank all that is good that we can now turn our focus onto the combine. I will be working through most of it, and this lousy cable system out here does not carry the NFL network. That sux. But at least there will be some newsworthy threads for the next several days!

    get direct tv. i'll be watching the 40 times and the favorite is the 225 bench press, although not too much football oriented.

    Have worked in larger plants in the past. Why the question? Do you make the pinwheels spin, too?

    Ahhh...Worked in two combined cycle facilities. One with a frame 5 and the other had frame 7's.

    But I am hijacking my own thread! How pathetic is that?

    THE HIVES likes being on the bottom of dogpiles, it's very tight down there.

    I have low expectations that NFL Network will spend much time on the players, the Senior Bowl coverage was horrible, they love their face time and with Eisen supposed to be at the Combine it will be even worse.

    Looks like the turbines outweigh the Combine's weigh-ins. :D

    I have a subscription to NFL Draft Scout (www.nfldraftscout.com) so I really won't miss out on much.

    One of those nights, I guess....:rolleyes:

    Topic..Wha? oh, yeah....the combine. I'm actually looking forward to digesting some good numbers coming out of these workouts, and we should hear some good stories about trades and rumors of trades, anyway.
