    9 still. No reason to be concerned. I do still think Callis’ draft grades are flawed.

  • A.D.

    9, stay the course.

  • larryf

    10-now that Derek put Minky on his Mantle….

    • LI Kevin

      I can’t believe people (guys) on here say she’s plain. She’s a doll! She just doesn’t look like a porno star (with the bleached hair and the huge boobs)that guys have been programed to like. Also, maybe he actually has true feelings for her. (I know, hard to imagine.)

      • OldYanksFan

        Something wrong with huge boobs?

        • LI Kevin

          It’s a matter of personal taste.
          The obviously fake, huge ones are a deal killer for me.

        Are you questioning my manhood?

        In all seriousness, she’s stunningly beautiful.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

          In all seriousness, she’s stunningly beautiful.

          I can put up with “beautiful”. Anything beyond that is hyperbole.

          (and yes, I know I’m arguing about your own personal opinion, which is incredibly dumb on my part. Whatevs. There’s principalities involved.)

          • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

            If you choose this over this, I think the impact of your comments on this topic may be compromised.

              A) When Derek was with Mariah Carey, she didn’t look like that. That was 10 years and 50 pounds ago. Huge difference.
              B) I never said Mariah (either old Mariah or young Mariah) was better looking than Minka Kelly. All I objected to the other night was the statement someone made that Minka was >>>>>>>>> both Mariah and Tyra Banks (who, again, Derek was dating many years and many pounds ago, at the height of her hotness.)
              I’d say it’s more Tyra >>>>>>>>>>>>> Minka = Mariah. But yes, Mariah is also one of Derek’s lesser conquests. If he would have married here back then, I also would have had snarkiness galore.

              In any event, Minka, Mariah, and Tyra are all beautiful. Tyra is the only one who has EVER been “stunningly” beautiful, at any point in her life.

              • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

                “A) When Derek was with Mariah Carey, she didn’t look like that. That was 10 years and 50 pounds ago. Huge difference.”

                But when you say that she’s >>>>>> hotter than Minka, you’re not talking about 10 years and 50 pounds ago, you’re talking about today. So no, she’s not hotter than Minka. I think we can agree that you maybe stretched a bit too far in making that Minka/Tyra/Mariah comparison.

                “In any event, Minka, Mariah, and Tyra are all beautiful.”

                Agreed. And today, which is really what matters, Minka’s the most beautiful of the three, in my opinion. I’m sure you disagree about Tyra, but the public humiliation she’s brought upon herself through her TV shows and the more advanced age (relative to Minka) make her less attractive, in my book.

                “Tyra is the only one who has EVER been ‘stunningly’ beautiful, at any point in her life.”

                Eh, like you said, totally subjective. Tyra was absolutely stunningly beautiful in her day, obviously. Mike thinks Minka’s stunningly beautiful today, you don’t think she is. Like you said above, it’s totally a matter of personal opinion.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

                  But when you say that she’s >>>>>> hotter than Minka,

                  I didn’t say that.

                  And again, I prefaced all this by saying that I was entering into a dumb argument since it’s Mike’s opinion. You’re taking this way too far.

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

                  Saying that Minka >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mariah is false is not the same thing as saying that Mariah >>>>>>>>>> Minka is true.

                  I don’t much care for EITHER of them.

                • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

                  Ummm… I’m sorry, but you know what’s coming next… You did, in fact, say exactly the thing you’re denying you said.

                  See:

                  JMK @ 8:35 PM:

                  Having said that,
                  Minka>>>>>>>>Mariah+Tyra.

                  You @ 8:37 PM:

                  Only if Minka massively wins the personality battle.
                  On looks/body alone, it’s the exact opposite.

                  [emphasis added]

                • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

                  Ugh. Oversimplification fail on my part.

                  Should have spelled it out more thoroughly. My bad.

                • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

                  Lol… I know that’s the closest we’ll ever get to getting a mea culpa out of you, so I’ll take it without further comment.

                • IRememberCelerinoSanchez

                  You guys are missing a key point. I’m willing to bet that Minka in 10 years >>>>>>>>> Mariah now. That is, Minka’s looks will age better. She’s prettier and less likely to balloon.

                  You can always count on the captain to think long-term.

      • larryf

        she is certainly attractive on Friday Night Lights. I think she must have won over Derek’s family. I think it is a good thing for the next few years. If the love fades, it won’t be till after he retires. Most of Derek’s teammates are married except for Alex…better not to be hangin’ with Arod…

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

        I can’t believe people (guys) on here say she’s plain. She’s a doll!

        Words I’d associate with someone called “a doll”:

        Plain-looking

        • Andy in Sunny Daytona

          Exactly. I wouldn’t want my daughter playing with a doll that looks like a porn star…..oops, forgot about Barbie.

          • CountryClub

            Terrific body. She’s sexy as hell.

            • CountryClub

              sorry, didnt mean to reply to you Andy

              • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                Sure you didn’t. Doll lover.

                • CountryClub

                  haha, that’s funny

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

              Terrific body. She’s sexy as hell.

              That’s a telling statement.

              “Terrific body” = Her face is utterly “meh”

              • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                She has a great personality too.

              • CountryClub

                I think her face is average. But I think she has a better body than Biel (i’m not in to the new muscular version) and Alba (though this is very close).

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  Jessica Biel, facially, is the ugliest of all of Jeter’s girls. She has the face of a dude.

                • JMK aka The Overshare’s Garden Apartment Complex

                  But an incredible body.

              • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

                Dude, did Minka Kelly put you in a dress and f*ck you or something?

          I’m too busy to actually find the clip, but its the thought that counts, right?

          My favorite Eddie Murphy skit of all time.

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Archimedes Torquemada

            The two Tyrone Green poetry pieces were better. Harder to find, though.

            Dark and lonely on a summer’s night.
            Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
            Watchdog barking. Do he bite?
            Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
            Slip in his window. Break his neck.
            Then his house I start to wreck.
            Got no reason. What the heck?
            Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
            C-I-L-L my landlord.

    This Minka debate reminds me of the Hillary Swank episode of The Office. “You’re asking me whether I think she’s hot or not. Not whether I would do her.”

    Wow this went really off topic.

    Still at 9. I wouldn’t mind having Damon Back for 1 yr/$6-7 million.

    • Jack

      I don’t think any of us would mind that.
