35 is just a number, could be 32, 36, 37 depending on the player and position. Batch is a QB, Quarterbacks play longer.

Plax could not hold Harrisons jockstrap as a player. Harrison gives 100% every play. without the high cap number, James is back without a doubt.

My whole issue with Burress is that we signed a thug. If the Bengals would have signed him, everybody on this board would have berated them for it. So now we will have to live with that as an organization. If he becomes a force, maybe it was worth it. If he does not, We still signed a player that will be associated with us for years to come.
got to give you that one. I was pretty disappointed with him when that happened as well. And you're right, we were correct to lose him earlier in his career. I have no problem having him here as a back-up though, especially because he has height that none of our other receivers have, could come in useful.
