The Official NFL Thread

Talk NFL shit here.

So...the ball is starting to roll with fools getting released (Bledsoe) signed (Porter, Bledsoe) and traded (Randy Moss (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1998159)??

Fuck...if Randy Moss goes to Oakland - they'll stick suck. Rich Gannon isn't what he used to be, if he ever comes back from what - that neck injury? And forget about Collins.

I'm a keep an eye on Philly and see what they do for free agents. They better wrap up Brian Westbrook.

NICE. Couple of notable signings off the top of my head:

Brett Favre is coming back. Good for him. Glad to hear his wife is doing well.

ha. Garcia is back with The Mooch in Detroit. Now they got 2 crappy QBs.

Minnesota's offseason fun keeps getting better and beter.

Sad to see vets like Ike Reese and Jermane Mayberry. Been VERY quiet down in Eagle camp. Hope they can get a good WR since Plexico is still out there. And snap up Burgess as a 2nd stringer.

Post by: street bastard on March 30, 2005, 06:01:58 PM
Reuben Droughns had a nice year last year but the way the Broncos are I could run for 1,000 yards in their system. I still think we should start Lee Suggs. He knows how to run behind our crappy offensive line. But he's injury prone. I guess this means we won't be taking Ronnie Brown in the draft. I'd like to get either Braylon Edwards or Mike Willams. With one of them and with Winslow coming back the offense should be better.

The Broncos have 3/4 of the Browns D-line.  :shock: Did they hire Butch Davis as an advisor?  :lol:

  Seattle would ok that trade in a second. Even though I hate Owens, he goes over the middle, and he always get seperation on the deep post and sideline routes. Plus he plays hurt. Robinson is always dinged/suspended/doesn't care, and Alexander is losing tread fast.

No way. TO is the guy who gets extra yards and him not being afraid to go in the middle and battle MLBs is what makes him MVP. Dude even backtracked his comments on McNabb and contract shit. Entertaining dude but not when its detrimental to the team. His Super Bowl performance was unfuckinbelievable. :thumbsup

So who is going to go number one this weekend? San Fran is definitely stuck with the pick, unless Ditka gets hired by someone to pull off another stupid trade ala Ricky Williams. Is it going to be Rogers or Smith? They are going to take a QB for sure. Miami is stuck too, they don't want the number 2 pick, but neither does anyone else. The best picks to have are the 8-15 spots. When someone starts to slip (Rogers, Brown, Cadillac), and some team wants them bad, that's when the trades will start flying. I hope the Cowboys can add a 3rd rounder and drop a spot or two, and still get Merriman or D. Johnson.

Jerry Jones Says  They're going to drop some bank on their new picks.  And wtf with Bledsoe?  Drew Henson is making more money than him probably and all he does is hold a damn clipboard!  Just tell all the Cowboys fans here,  "We're going to use our couple million dollar rookie/ 1yr vet( maybe, 1/2 game played) and have a crappy season.  Deal with it!"  The only good things about the Cowboys are Dat Nguyen (Respect for us Asians) and the Cheerleaders.  Other than that THEY SUCK!  and Jerry Jones is SATAN!
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Chan Ho Nam on April 20, 2005, 05:48:55 PM
Let me guess...you like the Redskins, or the Packers. You talk about Satan, talk about Dan Snyder. That fucker makes Jerry Jones look like Einstein. 9 million dollar signing bonus for Brunell?? Trading Coles for S. Moss? Please, let's trade a third (this year), and next year's first and fourth, for the 25th spot in the first round, of one of the weakest draft classes in the last 10 years.
  Anyways, everyone hates the Cowboys, but I like them. It's like everyone hates the Yankees too. I've liked the cowboys from way back, and they have sucked for five out of the last six years, but I still cheer.
 Bledsoe makes more than Henson in yearly salary by the way.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Chan Ho Nam on April 20, 2005, 10:26:39 PM
The 49ers are having contract talks with Tom Condon, so it looks like Alex Smith will be the No. 1 choice. Unless the 49ers won't give up the big cash, and they end up going for Rodgers instead because he will cost them less.

Post by: THUNDERDUCK on April 21, 2005, 06:01:43 AM
According to the Sports Business Journal, Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has signed a deal with Electronic Arts to be the cover athlete for Madden NFL 06. This fits the theme of the new title, introducing a new passing system into the game that factors in a quarterback's vision and placement into each pass.
This is the third year in a row the Madden cover athlete has fit with the theme of the new game. In Madden NFL 2004, the game introduced Playmaker controls and EA went with the ultimate playmaker, Michael Vick, years before anyone even heard the name Ron Mexico. Last year, it was all about the defense, and EA signed Ray Lewis to be Madden's spokesman.
But with the title comes the supposed sports game cover curse. A curse that has seen Vick go down with injury, Roy Jones knocked out, Jason Giambi turn Balco, and can even be traced back to the days of Buster Douglas Knockout.

  I hear ya. You probably see and hear about the 'Boys all day, all year. I understand, because I hear about my cities teams constantly, and I hate them all too.
   Who do you think that the Titans are going to take? It's being projected that they take either Rodgers, or a CB like Rolle or Jones at number 6.

I've been slacking lately on keeping up with the Draft this wknd.  I'll have to check out the fan boards and see.  They lost a lot of their good players to free agency if I remember correctly.  So, they're almost in a rebuilding stage.  Also McNair's health is always in the air.  He plays pretty good when banged up, but there is a limit to the amount of damage a man can take.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Chan Ho Nam on April 22, 2005, 05:52:02 AM
yeah, the Titans got violated in free agency. They have holes everywhere. You're right Mcnair isn't going to play forever, not with the beating he takes week to week. Billy Volek isn't going to lead them to the Super Bowl.

I thought Ten would have taken Rolle instead. Jones has got some character issues, like being arrested, while Rolle's dad, and one of his brothers are policemen. I think his dad is actually the town sheriff. Rolle got arrested, but the charges were dropped.
  I am so glad that Dallas got Ware and Spears. I thought they might take Merriman at 11, but Ware is better in coverage. But getting Spears was key. Without him, they would not be able to play the 3-4 this year.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: street bastard on April 24, 2005, 05:02:04 PM
Aaron Rodgers was just a victim of the fact not too many teams needed a QB badly.

The Browns had a nice draft. Braylon Edwards is a solid player that can make big plays. And we were able to pick up local QB Charlie Fyre in the 3rd so the peeps here won't bitch and moan.

But how bout Mike Willams to Detroit! The Lions have a STRONG Wide Recieving corps. And Maurice Clarett going to Denver in the 3rd round.  :shock:

Post by: Chan Ho Nam on April 25, 2005, 12:20:50 AM
I aggree that the Browns had a good draft, but with an ex-Raven asst. GM at the helm, you would expect that. Edwards was probably the most talented offensive player in the drat. They also got Pool and I was hoping the Cowboys would have a chance to get him. He was the only decent cover safety out this year. Looks like Romeo is going to have the Browns in a cover-2 this year.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Chan Ho Nam on April 26, 2005, 04:23:48 AM
The winners of this years draft all seem to be in the NFC, or NFC East. The Cowboys, Eagles and Redskins are all being rated as having very good drafts. Along with the Dolphins and Vikings. I think the Vikes draft was average, as their two 1st rounders both have some issues (hands&routes, injuries). Green Bay was drafting for the future, and so were the Jets, so they both received low grades, as did the Seahawks, Rams and Lions

Reports are saying Reuben Droughns wants to hold out because he isn't happy with the 2 years, 2 million left on his deal. He wants to restructure it.

I say fuck him. The Browns still have Lee Suggs and William Green. I'd tell him show up at camp or expect to sit on your ass for 2 years. Then let's see how much cash you can get after sitting out for 2 years. I hope the Browns play hardball with him and show him it's all about team.

Things would be so much better (especially the quality of the game), if contracts were structured so that the players were paid based on their performances.  Sorta like what they tried doing in the XFL, where everyone was paid a base salary, then the players who performed more/scored more/achieved certain goals ("x" number of completed passes/TD's scored/yards rushed, etc.) would literally EARN what they're paid.  If a player is injured and doesn't play, give them an version of "unemployment insurance" where they're paid, say, 70% of the base salary to help cover medical expenses and basic costs of living.  That's all they really need.  These "guaranteed contracts" these players get are completely fucking up professional sports in general.

  I think the Browns are in good shape if Suggs stays healthy. They are trying pretty hard to get rid of Green. They were dangling him as trade bait before the draft, but no takers. I think Droughns will have to adjust to having a sub-par O-line though, compared to what he had in Denver.

  The problem now is that the players get these huge signing bonuses, or guaranteed money up front. Most of the contracts now are back loaded, the big numbers don't kick in until the last few years of a contract. If a guy signs a 10 year 130 million dollar contract, the important number is the signing bonus. That is the money paid up front. The first say 3-5 years of the contract, he only makes 1-3 million a season. At season 6, his salary goes up to say 10 million, and most likely he is cut, traded, or re-does his salary, to make it more workable under the salary cap. But most players know that they will not receive that 10 million a season salary. All they want is the guaranteed signing bonus. A guy (ex. Owens...the premier team wrecker/coach killer) is happy with his happy that his first season of his new contract, he makes 14 million (salary and signing bonus). In his second year he is making only 5.5 million or so(rest of his signing bonus and salary), and now he thinks he is underpaid. A performance based system would be so much better, but it will never happen in the NFL. Especially not with Steinburg, the Poston brothers, and Condon out there as agents.

and yeah TO's not THAT much of an idiot to leave. He's just fuckin tired of being called a hero for his Super Bowl play and prefers to be an asshole  :lol:

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Chan Ho Nam on May 07, 2005, 06:17:35 AM
Yeah, Owens is represented by Drew Rosenhaus, who considers himself THE "Super Agent". He is one of the agents teams hate dealing with, also included are the Poston brothers. Rosenhaus is known to have his clients hold out, and/or miss training camp. For example, from last year's draft...Phillip Rivers (Chargers), picked 4th overall and missed most of training camp. Someone will have to budge, or he will sit out most of training camp. What pisses me off is that he signs a new contract last year, and alrteady he wants to re-negotiate. I knew that Owens would cause problems, he was a cancer in San Fran, and he will/is a cancer in Philly. Before Owens, they never had people holding out. Now look...Westbrook, Simon, and the ringleader Owens, will all probably miss some of training camp.

The San Francisco 49ers front office is under fire for an in-house training video that included lesbian porn, off-color racial jokes, a parody of gay marriage and topless blondes, according to a report in The San Francisco Chronicle.

The Chronicle reported that some of the 15-minute video, which also included linebacker Julian Peterson playing the part of a homeless man, was filmed at the City Hall office of San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom.
The video was reportedly intended to give 49ers' players a primer on how to handle the news media in an ethnically diverse city.

Public relations director Kirk Reynolds developed the video, but he reportedly is looking for a new job.

Team lawyer Ed Goines told The Chronicle that the video is "absolutely contradictory to the ideals and values of the San Francisco 49ers."

I saw a very short, censored part of that vid on SportsCentre last night.  It was only, like, 3-5 seconds (probably the only part of the video that they were willing to show on TV).  As I was watching I'm thinking "How much of a dumbass, inbred, redneck does one have to be to NOT know that making a video like that would get one in major shit?

"Oh, it wasn't supposed to be seen by the public.  It was just supposed to be a private thing for the 49ers."  WELL SUCK MY BIG, HAIRY BALLS AND CALL ME MICHAEL JACKSON!!!  OF COURSE it was only supposed to be seen by the team and not the public.  And Paris Hilton's tape with what's-his-dick was supposed to be a private thing between them, too.  

Personally, I'm hoping that any of the players who saw this tape told the guy that it was a piece of shit.  I'm hoping that it was one of them that told management and the media about it so that his ass would get fired.  Any player(s) that publicly come to this guy's defence will totally get burned by the media, and more importantly, by the fans in SF.

OK. watched the 49er Tapes...surprisingly.it wasn't censored!! Or else my work computer's video is bad. The jokes were pretty weak. You suck i suck, I don't see it offensive but just pretty lame jokes.

Troubled Minnesota Vikings running back Onterrio Smith has been suspended by the NFL for the entire 2005 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The announcement had been expected for several weeks, ever since Vikings head coach Mike Tice suspended Smith indefinitely following an embarrassing run-in at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on April 21, when Smith was stopped after his bag set off a screening device. A search found several vials of dried urine and "The Original Whizzinator," which is marketed as a way to beat drug tests.

Smith told police the gear was for his cousin. He wasn't charged, and the NFL has said possession of the device alone isn't enough to violate league drug policies.

The NFL's statement did not give a specific reason for Smith's suspension.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Onterrio that he can shake some of these problems and be with us next year," offensive coordinator Steve Loney said. Smith's attorney, David Cornwell, did not immediately return a telephone call from The Associated Press.

Smith had been expected to battle with Michael Bennett and Mewelde Moore for the starting running back job after leading the team in rushing in 2004.

Despite missing four games last season for violating the league's drug policy, Smith managed to lead the team with 544 yards rushing and entered the offseason as perhaps the Vikings' most talented runner.

But his off-the-field problems continued to surface. He already had two strikes against him before his latest violation. The third strike in the program comes with an automatic one-year suspension.

He was expelled by the University of Tennessee after testing positive for marijuana in 2000. He finished his college career at Oregon and was a fourth-round pick of the Vikings in 2003.

"We first off hate for him as an individual to be going through this, but certainly we know the league and the organization will do all we can to help him overcome his problems," Loney said.

The Vikings raised eyebrows in March when they spent a fourth-round draft pick on Florida running back Ciatrick Fason, which brought another gifted runner into the Vikings' already crowded backfield that also includes veteran Moe Williams.

The move seems to have paid off, with Fason now in the running for serious playing time should Bennett and Moore get injured or fail to produce.

Although Smith's suspension means more practice repetitions for Fason, the rookie was not in a mood to celebrate on Tuesday.

"I feel real bad because Onterrio was a big part of this offense," Fason said. "I feel bad because it kind of hurt the team somewhat. But you have to move on and know that he'll be back here next year ready to go. He's going to prove a lot of people wrong and show what he can do."

The Vikings will be just fine. Bennet has totally re-dedicated himself this off-season, he has gained 10 lbs of muscle, so maybe he will last an entire season this year. They still have Moe Williams and Melwede Moore as back ups, and both of them rushed for 100+ yards in a game last season.  That's why Smith lasted to the 4th round, because he has too much baggage.

MIAMI (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jerome McDougle was shot in the stomach by armed robbers, police said Friday. The team said he was in good condition after surgery.

He originally was listed in critical condition. However, Derek Boyko, the Eagles' director of media operations, said McDougle had spoken to team officials and was walking around his hospital room.
"Our understanding is that Jerome is in good condition after undergoing surgery," the team said in a statement. "At this time, we are still in the process of gathering the facts of his situation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jerome and his family."

McDougle, who played at the University of Miami, was due to be in the team's camp Monday, the reporting date for Eagles' veterans. Rookies reported Friday.

McDougle, 27, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent the surgery.

Three armed robbers approached McDougle at his silver Mercedes coupe late Thursday, police said. The suspects demanded the car, then fired their weapons, police said. McDougle was shot once in the stomach.

The robbers, who police said were likely teens, fled on foot and remain at large.

It wasn't clear whether McDougle was in his car or near it when he was approached, police said.

McDougle was a first-round pick in 2003, but has been plagued with injuries in Philadelphia. In two seasons, he had 18 tackles in 19 games, including two sacks.

McDougle had 114 tackles and 14 sacks in two seasons at Miami, and was a second-team All-American in 2002.

LOL. and Akers was getting his ass slapped on the sideline!! no wonder he was shanking FGs  :O

Fuckin awesome games this week. Eagles destroying the Niners was icing on the cake. What a fuckin floater by McNabb to TO on the second TD. Watched even Koy Detmer methodically march it down field as Lamar Gordon rumbling it in for the score made me pants wet.

I was SO waiting for Alex Smith to get crunched but one series was all she wrote.  :lol:

Props to Green Bay for honoring Reggie White (damn CBS didn't show it) but man are they missing their playmaker!! Fuck. Favre! C'mon man. 50,000 yards and his defense sucks. doesn't help Bubba Franks is hurt too.

I've gotta stop listening to Fantasy tips on TV and radio...the "secret" picks didn't pan out  :evil: I got like Matt Jones from the Jags and that was like a fuckin defensive battle  :evil:

At least Ice Cube picked Carolina over New England!! EAT SHIT BRADY!!

But shit...that's the NFL and why I LOVE IT!! Don't know what happens, it's so crazy to bet on it...and the reason why I'm so poor. I must be high. :pimp:

2 more games TMR!! FUCK YES!!

VIKING SEX BOAT SCANDAL

Quote from: Jim Rome
You’re the Minnesota Vikings, you’re 1-3, you’re coach is under fire, you’re headed for another horribly disappointing season; what do you do to turn that sinking ship around. Maybe that’s a bad choice of words considering they threw a sex party on a boat.

Cornerback Fred Smoot and another unidentified player reportedly chartered a couple of boats and according to authorities, got after it with “possible prostitution, drugs and live sex acts.” I get it. I know I don’t get on a boat, any boat without “possible prostitution, drugs and live sex acts.” Why would you?

Another woman complained that a number of Vikings jumped out of a limo and urinated on her front lawn on the way to the boats. You look back on the history of this league and you’ll find nothing brings a 1-3 team together quicker than nice hookers and a sex party on a chartered boat. Well, except for possibly, group urination on some unsuspecting woman’s lawn.

These guys do know that they’re not real Vikings and they can’t go raping and pillaging across the state of Minnesota right? Oh and for the record, Fred Smoot has denied paying for his boat.


Mike Tice says: "It'll either bring or tear apart the team..." no way man!! I love the idea that this will get team chemistry going!! XD XD That's what JP HiP needs!! Orgy on a boat!

Check this out:

 A three-time Pro Bowl defensive end during two stints with the Eagles, Douglas was released before the season started. He remained with the organization as a team "ambassador," and also does radio and television work.

ESPN.com reported the fight between Owens and Douglas started when Douglas entered the team's training room Nov. 2 and said: "I know there are people in here faking injuries." (http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/PHI/9027643)

Post by: THUNDERDUCK on November 09, 2005, 04:28:11 AM
The team appeared unmoved.
A contrite Owens, hoping to overturn his dismissal from the Eagles, on Tuesday apologized to coach Andy Reid, quarterback Donovan McNabb, the team's owner and president, and fans.

"The mentality that I have, my greatest strength can also be my greatest weakness," Owens said, reading a statement outside his house. "I'm a fighter. I've always been and I'll always be. I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alienated a lot of my fans and my teammates."

"This is very painful for me to be in this position," his said. "I know in my heart that I can help the team win the Super Bowl and not only be a dominant player, but also be a team player. I can bring that."

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Owens made a public apology in hopes of returning to the Eagles immediately.

"We hope he plays again for the Philadelphia Eagles," Rosenhaus said. "We hope he plays right away. We hope he plays against the Dallas Cowboys" on Monday night.

Team spokesman Derek Boyko said the Eagles had no comment.

A day earlier, Owens was told by the team not to return this season because of "a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time," Reid said.

He said Owens had been "warned repeatedly about the consequences of his actions."

The All-Pro wide receiver didn't play in Sunday night's 17-10 loss at Washington, and will remain suspended for three more games without pay. After that, the Eagles plan to deactivate him for the rest of the season.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday that the players' union has filed a grievance on behalf of Owens seeking to overturn the suspension. It will be heard Nov. 18 before arbitrator Richard Bloch.

Owens was suspended Saturday, two days after he said the Eagles showed "a lack of class" for not publicly recognizing his 100th career touchdown catch in a game on Oct. 23. In the same interview, Owens said the Eagles would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre at quarterback instead of McNabb.

Owens apologized to the organization for making those comments, but didn't address McNabb, even though the statement he read from included a direct apology to the five-time Pro Bowl quarterback.

This time, Owens said he was sorry not only to Reid and McNabb, but also to Eagles president Joe Banner and owner Jeffrey Lurie.

"I would like to reiterate my respect for Donovan McNabb as a quarterback and as a teammate," Owens said. "I apologize to him for any comments that may have been negative."

The Eagles are 4-4 this season and last in the NFC East. Last year, they were the top team in the conference, going 13-3 on the way to the Super Bowl.

"It really hurts me not to be part of the team anymore," Owens said. "I came here to help the Eagles get to the Super Bowl and win the big game."

Owens' relationship with the Eagles took a drastic turn after he fired longtime agent David Joseph, hired Rosenhaus and demanded a new contract just one season into the seven-year, $48.97 million deal he signed when he came to Philadelphia in March 2004.

While Rosenhaus spoke to reporters and refused to answer several questions, Owens stood stoically alongside a burly bodyguard.

He flashed his trademark smile and winked at a reporter who asked Rosenhaus what he's done for his client other than have him kicked off the team.

Rosenhaus skipped over that question and criticized the media for being "unfair" to Owens.

"There are players in the NFL that are arrested who violate the program when it comes to drugs and substance abuse and they are not punished as severely as him," Rosenhaus said.

Owens clashed with management this summer and earned a one-week exile from training camp after a heated dispute with Reid that followed a shouting match with offensive coordinator Brad Childress.

Owens forced a trade to the Eagles last year after eight seasons with the 49ers and invigorated the offense with his superior skills. He had 77 catches for 1,200 yards and 14 TDs in 14 games.

Soon after Philadelphia lost to New England in the Super Bowl, Owens took his first shot at McNabb, suggesting he was tired in the fourth quarter of the loss.

McNabb responded harshly and the two didn't speak for a prolonged period in training camp. They eventually reconciled their relationship and performed well together on the field - Owens has 47 catches for 763 yards and six TDs this season.

I fuckin watched that press conference over and over. That quote made me cry inside. Fuckin Rosenhaus rehasing TO's "There's other NFL players who do worse like rape and murder" ... Rosenhaus going "NEXT QUESTION NEXT QUESTION" I fuckin wanna beat the shit outta him!!!  :evil:  :evil:

Philly fans will give him shit, because Philly fans in general all sports are like that.  But, let him play.  I wouldn't want to pay his ass to sit on the bench because of "Principles".  It's the NFL win at all costs (within reason).  Anyway, how can they beat the 'boys without TO?

"The mentality that I have, my greatest strength can also be my greatest weakness," Owens said, reading a statement outside his house. "I'm a fighter. I've always been and I'll always be. I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alienated a lot of my fans and my teammates."

"This is very painful for me to be in this position," his said. "I know in my heart that I can help the team win the Super Bowl and not only be a dominant player, but also be a team player. I can bring that."

He says he CAN be a team player.  All he has to do is prove it by NOT doing what he himself admits to doing, which is alienating his teammates.  Alienating your teammates does not make you a team player, rather, it paints you as a loner, as someone who does not want/need teammates.  TO needs to understand this and try to adjust his "people skills" within the team he ends up playing for.  I'm not saying that he needs to change who he is, because then he would no longer be they type of player that he is.  All I'm saying is that he has to remember that he's just ONE cog in the machine, and that, as was just proven, he needs to be able to work WITH his teammates, because ANY cog can be replaced in order to make the machine work better.

*sigh* it's gonna be tough watching NFL. TO's a playmaker no doubt about it. And too many people like Rosenhaus and The Playmaker have been putting bullshit into his head. Eagles gonna pull it out. New England is 4-4 and banged up. Why are people so stubborn??  :evil:

LOL I was watching Sportscenter. And as much as I hate Ashton Kutcher, TO was on Punk'd. There was this car that flipped over and he pulled all these people out. Then the cop arrives: "You're a Hero. Can I get a McNabb autograph, my boy likes him cuz he's the one that throws it to you?"

Gotta edit my Fantasy Teams. LJ Smith is out. Eagles have no TE option. Priest is out. But not retired:

You go all the way into the redzone and don't fuckin cash in 7....how da hell do you expect Akers to kick a 60 yard FG? McNabb sacrificing at the last play, he's probably worse off now.

Yay Chad Lewis came back. and got like 17 yards on one play.

(http://img396.imageshack.us/img396/4025/mcnabbhp21116058bz.jpg)

MAN! What is with the Cowboys and the Eagles lol. Michael Irvin paralyzed and Philly fans cheering. Last year TO gets horse collar tackled by Roy Williams and breaks his ankle. And now Bradie James slamming D-Mac. ARRGH!

This ain't like in late 2002 when D-Mac broke his ankle  (http://www.sptimes.com/2002/11/18/news_pf/Sports/McNabb_out_for_6_8_we.shtml)and the Eagles relied on the 3 headed monster textbook offense. Everyone enjoys blitzing the Eagles this year, hence why the O-line got so beat up (that and we miss Corey Simon) and McNabb got the sacking of a lifetimes.

Year before. sure, McMahon may be better than Detmer (who doesn't have much of an arm lol.) but shit. I'd take McNabb on a chair. SOMEONE TRADE ME MCNABB!! XD

And yeah, I do agree with Jermiah Trotter, who said this about TO:

"We believe TO’s a good guy at heart and he can rectify the problem. And if he can rectify the problem, why wouldn’t we want TO on the team? I think it comes down to him talking to Andy and saying, ‘Hey coach, I want to come back and I want to do things the right way. That’s it. It’s that simple."

RECTIFICATION BABY!! Get TO back to throw balls for us. lol. This is coming from Trott who clashed with Andy Reid before and went to the Redskins but patched things up and came back.

At least there is Reggie White Jersey Retirement day: http://www.reggie92.com/

Hope it doesn't end up like Green Bay's earlier this year...I still say. if Eagles win 5 outta 7, they can sneak into the wildcard.

It was a nice win for the colts and it was nice for the bengals to atleast keep up for awhile against a winning team.

Philly? Toast? For the season yeah but they didn't do so bad today. Hell, McMahon didn't do too bad. But they definitely need someone like TO. R Brown showed some life but you can't just have 1 receiver. Look at the panthers, they got jacked up...even though their main man Smith got 169 yards!

The question is, can the Bears reach the super bowl? I'm really surprised about them. Yeah. I always knew their defense was awesome even on bad years but man...they beat the panthers!! But they need to power up the offense and score some points...you can't just rely on the defense though.

yeah man, its sad. Steve SMith 169 years. Total panther offense? not even 300 yards. Guess that's all you have to do. Shut down everyone else and let Smith catch them balls...just don't let him into the endzone.

It's gonna be a big game next week though. Indy vs Pitt with Big Ben back.  Big Ben doesn't even show that much poise but somehow...they do REALLY good when he's in there. And poor maddox...losing both games he's started this season. THey should've just threw in Randle El to be the QB.

SEE? Bears, Panthers, no way. lol there really is no definite dominate team so the NFC is really up for grabs. No Wildcard team is coming outta the North or South. so that means two more slots and Eagles need to take it one game at a time and beat the Seattles and the Arizonas. AT FUCKIN LEAST. Man. No more excuses, the secondary so raped as Pro Bowler Lito Sheppard sprained his ankle. Like my boy Thimmy says, DEFENSE fuckin SHIT ARRGH wins Championships. Vick's Falcons are iffy. McMahon looked alright but that ain't enough. Westbrook needs more touches. Follow The Phreak's lead...DUDE made Eli his bitch with 3 sacks!! The only positive Sunday.

Think Colts can go undefeated this year?? Maybe. One against Big Benless (??) Steelers next week but it's Cards, Jags, Titans, 'Hawks ... Chargers might pose a problem. Could be possible! I hope not. I wanna see the 72 Dolphins old farts cheering on the sidelines.

ahaha dude, I like your sig at Hiroayu's place. And Madden 06 sucks..even though it's cursed. And it doesn't even look like McNabb.

The colts might make it to 16-0 considering other than Pitt, no team has a real def that can stop them. Sure, Chargers got LT, Brees and Gates but Manning showed he can still pull off TD magic. Pitt is tough with Big Ben. They are pussies without him. So Roethlisberger will determine if the colts can really stay 16-0.

And nah man, the Eagles are done. Their season is getting worse and worse with the injuries and TO suspension. Look at the other teams fawked by injuries: the pats, the niners (okay okay), the packers, ummmm.

I'm very disappointed with the Rams though. Not being able to run  on the Cards with Steven Jackson is a slap in the face of every RB in the league.

Post by: THUNDERDUCK on November 28, 2005, 12:58:57 AM
From MSN

Just when it seemed as if the Terrell Owens' situation was finally starting to settle down, yet another subplot has emerged — one involving tampering between division rivals.

As first reported on FOX NFL Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles have filed a tampering charge with the NFL against Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for comments he made this week regarding Dallas' penchant for going after players with baggage such as Owens.
The claim was filed early this week and then Eagles owner Jeff Lurie phoned NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue to follow up on the matter. The Eagles were informed that the league office will be looking into the situation.

The charge stems from comments Jones made on a radio show this week when asked about the possibility of picking up Owens.

"I'm avoiding, deliberately avoiding, saying whether or not the Cowboys would be interested," Jones said. "He's a player that is a competitive player. He's an outstanding addition to an offense. ... In general, I am a risk-taker. We've gone down that road. We've had some situations that worked and some that didn't. Alonzo Spellman had a great year with us. Alonzo certainly had some issues. ... I probably have a propensity to try and make things work. ... We've got a quarterback in Bledsoe who is arguably as fine a long-ball thrower as there is in the league. A top receiver could flourish with Drew Bledsoe. That's always appealing."

Under normal circumstances the Eagles would seem to have little chance of getting the league to levy a punishment on Jones and it still may. However, there is yet another twist that makes the Eagles case a bit stronger.

FOX Sports has also learned that the league office last week sent a memo to all teams specifically warning them from direct or indirect contact with Owens as well as talking about the possibility of picking up the controversial All-Pro weapon.

Both the memo and the tampering charge were issued prior to arbitrator Richard Bloch's 38-page decision earlier in the week that sided with the Eagles on all accounts of the Owens matter. It's unclear whether the Eagles continued their complaint after Bloch's ruling made the issue moot.

The penalty for tampering is wide-ranging, with the worst being loss of draft picks. However, that is usually reserved for extreme cases. In this case, Jones never mentions Owens by name, although it's clear he isn't deflecting interest.

Prior to the decision, however, there was rampant speculation inside the media regarding the potential landing spot for the beleaguered wideout. Many believed that Owens would actually be a free agent sometime this season, a notion that was knocked out when Bloch ruled the Eagles were not required to allow Owens use of the facility even after his suspension.

Can this saga get any better?

PLANO, Texas (AP) - Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia after police searched his vehicle during a traffic stop, Plano police said Sunday.

Irvin, an ESPN analyst and semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for speeding in Irving after being pulled over Friday afternoon for speeding in Plano, the Plano Police Department said. Police spokesman Mike Johnson said he didn't know what kind of paraphernalia was found.
Irvin paid a fine on the speeding ticket and posted bond on the drug paraphernalia possession charge. He was released about an hour after he was pulled over.

"We are reviewing the facts of the situation and have no comment at this time," ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said.

Irvin, a member of three Super Bowl championship teams with the Cowboys, retired in July 2000.

In 1996, Irvin pleaded no contest to felony cocaine possession in exchange for four years of deferred probation, a $10,000 fine and dismissal of misdemeanor marijuana possession charges.

Irvin holds Cowboys records for catches (750), receiving yards (11,904) and 100-yard games (47), including a team-record seven in a row in 1991.

An inspiration to all us, Vietnamese and Texas Aggies-

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys linebacker Dat Nguyen is considering retirement after being placed on the season-ending injured reserve list with neck and knee injuries.

"He doesn't feel like he can play up to his standard now," coach Bill Parcells said Monday. "I think he's going to consider retirement."

Nguyen strained his neck Sept. 25 at Oakland, played the next week and then missed three games to end his 43-game starting streak. He played sparingly in the past four games without starting, mainly in passing situations.

The 30-year-old Nguyen, in his seventh season out of Texas A&M, is signed through 2007. He has 665 career tackles and led the Cowboys in tackles the past two seasons, the first player to do that since Ken Norton Jr. in 1992-93.

Besides the neck injury, Nguyen has been bothered by knee problems this season.

"He just physically couldn't withstand some of the things. That's really what the problems were," Parcells said. "You're the first one to know and then it kind of gets you a little depressed, which I think happened to him a little bit too."

Parcells said Nguyen spoke to him Sunday, a conversation that was similar to one they had just a few weeks earlier in which the linebacker also mentioned the possibility of retiring.

Nguyen, the first Vietnamese-American to play in the NFL, wasn't available for comment. Parcells made his announcement after the open locker room period Monday.

Nguyen, a defensive captain who finished this season with 39 tackles, is the second starting linebacker the Cowboys have lost this season. Al Singleton was put on injured reserve after breaking his shoulder Oct. 30 against Arizona.

The Cowboys signed Michael Barrow, who played 11 NFL seasons for the Houston Oilers (1993-96), Carolina Panthers (1997-99) and New York Giants (2000-03), to take Nguyen's roster spot.

Barrow had 148 tackles for the Giants in the 2003, then signed with Washington but didn't play last season because of a quad injury and tendinitis in his knee. The Redskins released him in July.

Parcells believes Barrow, who had 17 tackles in a 2003 game against the Cowboys, is healthy enough and may play Sunday against the Giants.

"I just hope he can give us a little contribution for four or five games," Parcells said. "He's just got to go a month, so maybe we can get him through that."

Scott Shanle, who missed the Denver game with an ankle injury, returned to practice Monday and likely will start at outside linebacker. He had started six straight games in Nguyen's place before Thursday.

Yeah. sad to say. Dallas has an easy sked vs Skins, Rams, Chiefs. But fuck, they so inconsistent...and you know. Like Gung Ho to Bledsoe:

Poor Mike Vick...got JACKED UP. He was asking for it running around like that LMFAO. Solid win over the Saints so the playoff picture keeps getting tighter and tighter.

I saw on yesterday's broadcast, TO had like invitations (yellow flags??) in the Eagles locker room for his birthday party. Check out the pix on his official site soon :P

Quote
"I'm still a Philadelphia Eagle until the end of the year," he said. "I love Philly, I love my teammates and thank you to everybody who came here tonight and showed me their love."

He added: "I ain't ever going to let anyone change me. I will be back."

 Jevon Kearse and Lito Sheppard were among the 11 Eagles who had arrived at the party by 11:15.

"It's a wonderful event and I'm just showing some support," Kearse said. "He's a wonderful teammate."

Receiver Darnerien McCants was the first Eagles player to arrive. He was followed by tight ends L.J. Smith, Stephen Spach and Andy Thorn, injured linebacker Greg Richmond and injured running back Brian Westbrook.


The Phreak being the one who mocked TO with situps during practice. LOL. time to play Madden again.

New England is in a shit division, much like Seattle. Fuck I'd like to play the Cards and Jets twice a year too.

LUTZ, Fla. (AP) -- James Dungy, the 18-year-old son of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, was found dead of an apparent suicide early Thursday, the sheriff's office said.

James Dungy's girlfriend found him when she returned to the Campus Lodge Apartments at about 1:30 a.m., Hillsborough County Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said.

"Based on evidence at the scene, indications are that this death appears to be a suicide," Carter said. She said an autopsy was pending.

Dungy wasn't breathing when he was found, Carter said. A sheriff's deputy performed CPR before an ambulance took him to University Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Tony Dungy took the team plane from Indianapolis to Tampa, Fla., where he had coached the Buccaneers from 1996 to 2001.

The Colts (13-1) travel to Seattle for a game Saturday, and team president Bill Polian said assistant head coach Jim Caldwell will take over "for however long Tony will be away, and however long he will be away is entirely up to him."

ADVERTISEMENT
[-78161]
"The thoughts and prayers of everyone in this building are with Tony and (wife) Lauren, their children and their extended family, and for the repose of James' soul," Polian said at a news conference at the team's training facility in Indianapolis. "This is a tragedy for the Dungy family and by extension for his football family here with the Colts."

Dungy is immensely popular around the NFL and known for his soft-spoken style, ever-steady leadership and commitment to balancing family life with football -- a rare trait in NFL coaches. He shared the blame when Indianapolis lost its first game Sunday against the visiting San Diego Chargers, ending what had been a perfect season.

"It certainly keeps things in perspective," two-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning said. "Players with families, it certainly hits home. Coach Dungy's close to a lot of these players. ... Players feel close to him as well as his family."

Owner Jim Irsay and Polian met with team officials and players to break the news. "It was not easy, and it was somber, to say the least," Polian said.

"I don't think there's anyone here that would wish to play a football game under these circumstances, but it's our obligation and we'll fulfill that obligation because that's what Tony wants us to do," Polian said.

The Dungys have four other children: daughters Tiara and Jade and sons Eric and Jordan. James Dungy spent his senior year at North Central High School in Indianapolis and graduated this year.

C.E. Quandt, the school's principal, said Dungy was a personable student who never flaunted his father's position, and had recently visited North Central. He said the death surprised and saddened everyone at the school.

"It kind of diminishes our school family," he said.

Indianapolis Colts assistant head coach Jim Caldwell gives instructions as the team practiced in Indianapolis Thursday, Dec. 22, 2005. Head coach Tony Dungy's son, James Dungy, 18, was found dead in a Tampa-area apartment, police said Thursday. Caldwell will lead the team in Dungy's absence.
AP - Dec 22, 2:25 pm EST
More Photos
A woman who answered the door at James Dungy's girlfriend's home declined comment Thursday. Jessica James, 18, who described herself as a close friend, said she and a group of friends went to the movies with Dungy on Monday night.

"He was cracking jokes, just being himself," she said. "This morning, it was so surreal."

She said Dungy "was just a really good kid, very laid-back. Unless you asked him, you'd never know he was Tony Dungy's son."

The mood was somber Thursday at the Buccaneers' practice facility, located near the airport where the Colts' plane that brought Tony Dungy to Florida was parked. Players and coaches could see the plane from the practice field.

"It shakes you, there's no doubt about it. Tony and I first came together in 1992 and I got to see the boy grow up. ... Tony's got tremendous faith, and that's what will carry Tony through," said Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, who worked for Dungy at Tampa Bay.

James Dungy was a frequent visitor to the Bucs' practices and games when his father coached the team.

"He was here all the time, hanging out in the locker room and with the players on the field," fullback Mike Alstott said. "If James wasn't here, it was like: `Where's James?' He was part of this football team."

New York Jets coach Herman Edwards, one of Dungy's closest friends, called James a "very, very good kid.

"The whole family is good people. You know Tony, how he raised a family," Edwards said from Jets training camp in Hempstead, N.Y. "A tragedy. I know the prayers of the National Football League go out to him and his family."

Two other NFL head coaches lost close family members this season, both in November. Don Parcells, brother of Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells, died of brain cancer in New Jersey at age 62; Steve Belichick, father of New England Patriots' coach Bill Belichick, died at 86.

Associated Press Writers Cliff Brunt in Indianapolis and Mitch Stacy in Tampa, Fla.,; and AP Sports Writers Andrea Adelson in New York and Mike Marot in Indianapolis contributed to this report.

I hope he doesn't retire, and I hope he stays with the Packers because I can't picture him playing with another team.

I think he is still a good QB. Injuries have plagued the Packers this year, and Brett doesn't have any weapons to go to. Surround him with better players and you might get a shot at the superbowl next year.

First, full disclosure: I am not a football fan, NFL or college.  I know as much about football as I do soccer.  OK, maybe a little more but not a whole lot...

I saw this play on Sunday night's late news and I still have question marks above my head.  Can someone explain this to me?  So Flutie was just attempting an extra point, except he was trying to get more style points from the French Olympic judge?  Could he have just booted the ball after receiving the snap or he had to make that kickball bounce?  Could the "regular" kicker do this too?

Why'd he do such a nutty thing?

Post by: THUNDERDUCK on January 03, 2006, 08:19:50 AM
The dropkick remains a legal maneuver in the National Football League today. It still exists in the NFL's official rule book. Rule 3, Section 8 defines the dropkick as, "a kick by a kicker who drops the ball and kicks it as, or immediately after, it touches the ground."
Obviously, the New England Patriots were well aware of this fact.  In the team's 2005 regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Doug Flutie dropkicked an extra point following a 9-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Tim Dwight in the fourth quarter.  Flutie's point-after-attempt was the first drop kick converted in the NFL in more than six decades.

Some of the legends who've been permanently honored in the Pro Football Hall of Fame were masters of the dropkick. Names like Jim Thorpe, Wilbur "Pete" Henry, and Paddy Driscoll were known to have entertained pro football crowds with their extraordinary talent of dropkicking. Albeit, some of their exploits were exaggerated but nevertheless the dropkick was an integral part of the game in the 1920s and 1930s. It was during this era that the football slightly resembled a rugby ball. Numerous rule changes affecting the shape of the ball took place during the early years of the NFL. Changes to the ball essentially ended by 1934 as it took its familiar shape of a prolate spheroid. As a result, the number of dropkicks attempted in the NFL diminished significantly in subsequent years.

"As soon as they made the ball pointier, dropkicking went out of style. They needed the ball to bounce and to bounce true," commented Bob Carroll, a leading football historian.

In fact, it wasn't until 1963 that the league removed the category of dropkicked field goals from the record book. Driscoll shared the two major records for dropkicking when he booted fourfield goals (23, 18, 50 and 35 yards) for the Chicago Cardinals in a 19-9 win over the Columbus Tigers on October 11, 1925. That mark was equaled by the Kansas City Cowboys' Elbert Bloodgood. His four dropkicked field goals were from 35, 32, 20, and 25 yards as Kansas City edged the Duluth Eskimos, 12-7, on December 12, 1926.

Driscoll's 50-yarder was also an NFL best and matched the record-tying kick he made one year earlier in a game against the Milwaukee Badgers on September 28, 1924. The Cardinals defeated Milwaukee, 17-7.
Prior to Flutie drop-kicking the PAT on January 1, 2006, Ray McLean of the Chicago Bears was the last player to successfully drop kick in the NFL. McLean converted an extra point following Ken Kavanaugh's 42-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown during the Bears' 37-9 win over the New York Giants in the 1941 NFL Championship Game. The drop kick came in the fourth quarter of the title game played on December 21, 1941.

Hall of Famer Earl "Dutch" Clark  is believed to be the last player to successfully dropkick a field goal in the NFL. According to game accounts, he dropkicked a 17-yard field goal in the Detroit Lions 16-7 victory over the Chicago Cardinals on September 19, 1937.

I guess it was used to confuse the fins, into thinking they were aiming for the 2 pt. conversion.

Yeah. I never knew a drop kick was a way to get the ball through the uprights, cuz usually when you kick it like that it tends to wobble to the left or right instead of a set place kick.

Nah I actually like Bledsoe. Hes better than all that crap Dallas has seen the last few years. He made some pretty good throws this season....I think the problem is the running. Julius Jones... :? I don't know what happened to him...I would blame the line or something but the rookie; Marion Barber made plays while Jones didn't...cept for that one game vs Carolina.

I hope theres a miracle and Dat Nguyen recovers from his injury  :( Our defense was solid with him playing linebacker.


I take the Pitts, Skins, Jax, and Carolina.

I'm surprised Giants got shut out 23-0 to the Panthers but next week's Divisional Playoffs.

Predictions?? Me hmm,

Hawks over Skins
Pats over Broncos
Colts over Steelers
Panthers over Bears

then...

Seahawks over Panthers
Colts over Pats

Super Bowl XL

Colts over Seahawks...

hmm...nah, that's too paint-by-numbers. Gotta be an upset in there.

its kinda a shocking game...
colts were down 21-10, it seems like peyton manning threw an interception but dungy challenged and had it reserved, Edgerrin James rushed for a touchdown 21-16, colts going to 2-pt conv... 5 yd penalty false start and reggie wayne caught it in the corner 21-18.

colts got the ball back, 4th down, manning sacked @ the 2 or 1 yd line, with 3 time out... when it feels like the game is over... Jerome Bettis runs up the middle, FUMBLE... Harper takes the ball back and tackled by roethlisberger... manning convert 2 quick pass and got to the 36 yd line... vanderjagt misses a 46 yd FG... woah... too much excitement for one day x____x

well lets just say, Broncos are gonna lose to Steelers now

Steelers over Broncos
Carolina over Seattle

Seattle vs. Carolina (Mini Pre-Game Analysis by scrock7)

You know how most article on sports talk about the most about how the game deciding factor might be the health of Shaun Alexander? Well I think not... Julius Peppers's health.. I believe is the biggest factor in this game, haven't been practicing but i think he will play.

I don't think he will make much of the difference to the offense in this game even if he is healthy. It's a fact that he is a good RB, but also look at all the teams they have a high scoring game against... they have poor overall defense. For all the low scoring game, they played, Jacksonville, Washington, Dallas, Green Bay. Jacksonvilles has a tough D, even the Colts struggled, you already saw Washington's D last week, they knock him so hard that he was forced to leave with a concussion, Dallas also had a good D... well as for the game to Green Bay, it was right before playoff so they didn't play him too hard.

But the point is that, for all those low scoring game against good D, Alexander was held less than 100 yds and i dont think it was even close to 100 yds... then it's up to Hasselback to step up, such as the game in Jacksonville, he did a great job of throwing 3 picks and cost them the game. In my opinion, it might be better for Alexander not to play because Hasselback tends to do better when he is put on the hot seat. When Alexander is in play, he is most likely to throw interceptions.

In the other hand, Carolina might have a little trouble with the running game since DeShaun Foster won't be able to play, its most likely Nick Goings will get the ball and he is a decent 3rd string. Let me ask you a question... Who else/what position does Carolina Panthers need?

Answer is.. No one/nothing, I believe this team is complete and has a good shot @ the title
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: daigong on January 20, 2006, 08:37:26 AM
Funny, Seattle looked like they were toast when #37 went out.  Julius Pepper is a BEAST. You just flinch at Hasselback and he'll fold...I'm going with Seattle though. They're all banged up but Seattle is deep. if Engram or Jackson can't go, Jurevicius is there.

so many strange calls being overturned in the Indy-Pitts game. the pass interference, the Palomolu interception. Yeah, the refs need to be checked. There's gotta be clear cut evidence before you overturn it. There wasn't even a review in their little hooded camera.

Makes me agree with Joey Porter, it's a conspiracy. :lol: Peyton Manning is the posterchild of marketing, but man, dude is so talented but can't win the big game!

Steelers defense is looking so solid, Denver and Pittsburgh look evenly matched with the blitz packages. Champ Bailey, ain't he a little banged up? Just Pittsburgh's offense looks better. The running game, Antwaan Randle El is gonna have a big game.

I like Steelers and Seahawks in the Super Bowl with Steelers winning it.

u know wats funny?... the Broncos practically has Cleveland Browns' old defensive line which never stoppped Steelers... including (Courtney Brown, Ebenezer Ekuban, and overrated Florida DT Gerrad useless Warren), but then again they have Trevor Pryce but i dont think that will make much of a difference... anyways... I don't even know why Broncos wanted this line in the first place, i mean this is the line that gave up 295 rushing yd to Jamal Lewis, and got beat up by everyone else...

well i would just say... Broncos, good luck trying to stop the BUS (well i actually hates the Steelers) but yet i have a feeling Steelers will win

giving up 2 rushing TDs to Jerome Bettis is not exactly stopping the BUS lol[/u] and of course, great job to Gerrad Warren, Courtney Brown who was useless on stopping the steelers running game, and of course most work was done by Trevor Pryce. Well the Steelers didn't have to run the ball cuz the passing game was working so great and Broncos only stopped like 4-5 runs then give up a Rushing TD to Jerome Bettis... then later two consecutive 10+ yd run to Parker and a 15 rushing TD by Jerome Bettis aka THE BUS called back due to the illegal formation on Hines Ward (well i gotta say, there was no holding so technically, thats another rushing TD for him) Jake Plummer is back to his old Arizonca Cardinal self in this game.. Jake "interception" Plummer... and also Plummer was a fumbling machine out there
------
and wow... I was quite shocked about Jake Delhomme.... 3 picks, quite disappointing performance

well, i guess there isn't anyone to stop the Steelers now since Panthers are out of the Super Bowl

But now the real question is who is gonna pick up Vincent Young, and Reggie Bush?

personally i think that Reggie will be picked up by Houston and Reggie will go to Tenesse. But man if Houston picks up Vincent young and use him as a running back it will make for some cool trick plays.

Anyways, Who does everyone think deserves to be Super Bowl MVP?

1. Hines Ward (that ugly passing catch from Ben when 3rd & 28 + a 43 yd catching TD from Randel Al)
2. Willie Parker (ran for 75 yards rushing TD)
3. Antawn Randle El (throwing that 43 yard passing TD... PERFERT SPIRAL to Hines Ward in the End Zone)


Well in my Opinion, Willie Parker should deserve the MVP... well sure Hines Ward was making big plays by making those catches... but he dropped a critical touchdown pass in the end zone... he had that and he dropped it... and he couldn't have caught that Touchdown if Randle El hasn't thrown that perfectly...

In the second quarter, that 75 yd rushing TD by Willie Parker set the game for the Steelers and making the Seahawks play by Steeler's tempo... cuz 14-3, Seahawks must score to get close.. which force them to score faster (cuz needs 2 possesion to tie or take the lead)

I mean yeah, there are alot of controversial calls in the game like the Roethlisberger Rushing TD or the pushing the defender on Darrel Jackson. But Seahawks were making poor decision and mistakes in the end that cost them the game. I mean you have 35 seconds left... and you are in Field Goal Range, down by 11... WELL KICK THE FREAKING FIELD GOAL MY GOD AND STOP WASTING TIME... i guess not... Seahawks... ummm passing on 3rd down with no time out... complete pass but the clock runs... MORON! if they kick the field goal while they had time, they might be able to kick the field goal, 21-13, and then on-side kick and go for a TD + 2pt conversion to tie the game.... i mean thats Moronic

And Ben Roethlisberger was also a bum but throwing that weak little interception near the end zone.... If the Steelers made that Touchdown, it's most likely Ball game... but NOOOOOOO... throw the ball instead of letting Jerome Bettis (who was running like 5-10 yds per carry)... sigh

Anyways... Steelers won, Bengals might lose Quarter to career ending injury... Ravens NEEDS a QB... and time for Cleveland Browns to shine  :lol:  WHOOOOOO GO BROWNS!!!!!!!!!!!!  :w00t:

Well, I can see the Texans draft Vince Young (NOT Vincent unless full name)... because Texans.. and he is like the Texas Hero

Personally, I think Vince Young is gonna suck in the Pros... he is not faster than Michael Vick and he is not as accurate as Vick and I dont think he is better than Vick, that's my argument

If Texas is SMART! then they should trade down and get OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson coming out of Virginia, if u have seem him play... you would know, HE IS A BEAST! Any team could use him。。。 but i am guessing Texas is gonna be retarded by drafting Bush/Lienart/Young

The Superbowl was whack this year to me. I was hoping for a close and climatic game but instead the refs had to ruin it. I was happy though to see the Steelers win and the Bus going out on top. He deserved it.

The way I see the top 4 picks going is:

1. Bush
2. Leinhart
3. Young
4. Ferguson

Texans and Bush is practically a lock since Texans said they were going for Bush. I was hoping the Jets would lose the Bills game at the end of the season so we would have the 3rd pick and Young but I'm happy with Ferguson since our O-line is getting old.

I don't think Houston will draft Vince Young, even though he is native of Houston.  They invested too much in David Carr.  If they spend $X on Vince, they'll be paying just as much for Carr a veteran 1st pick to sit on the bench.  Take Reggie to hopefully improve the run offense, and see how well coaching turns out.

The thing is... Bush is like the same player as Domanick Davis... and Domanick Davis is not a bad RB just that the O-Line is horrible...

just my opinion, that Bush will not be as good in the Pro since he runs with his body straight up... most likely he is gonna get decked a lot.... if Houston is smart... get D'Brickashaw Ferguson....

damn damn. I'll get a Super Bowl take and Draft take and Eagles offseason woes tmr. :D

ETA:

The Super Bowl. hmm...pretty average. Too many questionable calls (Hasselback's tackle at the knees? the offensive pass interference on Darrell Jackson?) too many mistakes by both teams. Seattle had it but the refs didn't fuck em over. Sorry Holmgren, but fuck don't take dumb penalties like that. Willie Parker wrapped it up with that 75 yarder. But yeah agreed, Roethlisberger's "untouchdown" was the back breaker. Barely got in!

Props to Hines Ward, Half Korean, Half Amazing despite the stats. I think Antonie Randle El shoulda got MVP. Wasn't he the one who was folded up? Then left the game only to come back and throw up that TD pass in the back breaking gadget play?

Good for the Bus. The NFL wanted them to win, with all those B&W promos of everyone holding the Lombardi trophy?? MAAN. Why couldn't we get shots of McNabb + TO doing that last year. I'd tape it.

And maan, interesting how Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw didn't appear. That parade of past MVPs was great, even fuckin Bart Starr and Joe Naimath were there!! WTF?

Eagles next year for sure. Trade TO for some good Defensive Linemen.

The draft will be interesting. Reggie Bush might be trade bait cuz David Carr indeed was wrapped up long term. I'd like to see Vince Young with the Titans. Leinhart is too banged up, that extra year at USC hurt his NFL hopes.

so far the Browns is definitely the biggest winner overall in the free agent market, they are filling pretty much all the position needed

C - LeCharles Bentley
OT - Kevin Shaffer
DT - Ted Washington
WR - Joe Jurevicious (Super Bowl traveler)
DE/LB - Willie McGinest
P - Dave Zastudil

no really big names, but yet enough to make the team more solid than before... and with a lot of young prospect on the team (Frye, Edwards, Winslow)... they might be a playoff contender team this yr....

and its not over yet.... there is still be possible signing of players + also the NFL draft coming up end of April  :w00t:

Because of Owens' presence, RB Julius Jones is going to see less eight-man fronts and WR Terry Glenn will become even more of a deep threat because he's going to see less double coverage with Owens on the other side. This offense has the potential to be quite explosive when you realize the Cowboys also have tight end Jason Witten and QB Drew Bledsoe.

Former NFL quarterback Quincy Carter signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL on Tuesday. Carter, who played for the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets, signed a one-year contract with an option for 2007. He will be at Alouettes' training camp in May.

Q-Car Should remember Say Nope to Dope!

The Cincinnati Bengals signed unrestricted free-agent defensive tackle Sam Adams to a three-year contract Monday. The 6-foot-4, 335-pound Adams earned three Pro Bowl selections in the last six years

Eric Moulds agreed to a contract with Houston on Tuesday and said the Texans have worked out a trade to acquire the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver from the Bills. "Yeah, it's done," Moulds' personal adviser Greg Johnson said of the deal.

The Titans told Steve McNair they don't want him working out in their building until his contract is reworked, the quarterback's agent said Tuesday. McNair was told to go home Monday when he showed up at the team's headquarters for the start of the third week in the Titans' offseason conditioning program.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Doug Flutie retired Monday, ending a 21-year career in which the undersized Heisman Trophy winner threw one of college football's most famous passes and played a dozen seasons in the NFL.

"It's just been a fun run for me," the 43-year-old Flutie said.
Flutie finished his career with one season with the New England Patriots, for whom he threw 10 passes in five games but was able to play near his home in Natick and close to Boston College, where he won the Heisman in 1984.

"To finish it up by getting back here is very special," he said at a news conference at Gillette Stadium, home of the Patriots.

Flutie's next job will be as a college football analyst with ABC and ESPN. He'll work in the ABC studio during Saturday's college football games and on ESPN studio shows, and might be an analyst at some games.

Flutie spent 12 seasons in the NFL and played in the U.S. Football League and the Canadian Football League. He won the CFL's Most Outstanding Player award six times and the league's Grey Cup championship three times.

The Patriots listed him at 5-feet-10, but he said Monday he actually was one-eighth of an inch shorter.

"Like some of us," said Robert Kraft, the Patriots diminutive owner, "he was vertically challenged and he never let it slow him down."

Flutie finishes with 14,715 passing yards and 86 touchdowns in the NFL, spending most of his time as a backup. Last season, he converted the league's first drop kick for an extra point since the 1941 NFL title game.

"If that ends up being my last play, it wouldn't be bad," Flutie said after the game, a mostly meaningless regular season-ending loss to the Miami Dolphins.

His college career was also punctuated by a play that endures as one of the most memorable in the sport. He won the 1984 Heisman after connecting with Gerard Phelan on a desperation 48-yard touchdown pass that beat Miami as time expired.

But Flutie started only six games in the last four seasons, the first three with San Diego.

"If he knew he was going out there to play and start, he would not retire. It would be an easy choice for him," Phelan said Monday, but "Sundays are frustrating."

Flutie left BC as the school's passing leader with 10,579 yards, and he remains a hero on campus; his Heisman is the centerpiece of the school's new Hall of Fame. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 11th round in 1985 but chose to play for the USFL's New Jersey Generals, owned by Donald Trump.

He then joined the NFL, but his freewheeling style and short stature were a poor fit for its conservative schemes. He played five games for Chicago the next two seasons and 17 for New England from 1987-89.

Only in the CFL, with its wide-open game, did he truly find success, throwing for 41,355 yards and 270 touchdowns in eight seasons with British Columbia, Calgary and Toronto.

"His accomplishments up there are more than legendary," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday.

He joined Buffalo in 1998 and played more regularly - 39 games over three years. He started all 16 games for San Diego in 2001 then spent the next three years as backup to Drew Brees.

Last April, Flutie signed with the Patriots for a second time.

He made his biggest splash with his drop kick.

"I think Doug deserves it," Belichick said after the game, sensing that the play would be Flutie's football finale. "He is a guy that adds a lot to this game of football, has added a lot through his great career - running, passing and now kicking."
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread

Flutie was pretty good...I'm glad to see him prove himself in the NFL even though he ended up as an exciting backup. Given the good system, he coulda went far.

Me still reeling at the prospects in Eagles training camp. Let's hope their defensive and offensive lines will be solid.

Owens Trashes McNabb In New Book

The book, called "T.O.," from Simon & Schuster and is co-authored by the brother of agent Drew Rosenhaus, Jason Rosenhaus.

And not shockingly, Owens spends much of book trashing former teammate McNabb and blaming McNabb for the fallout between the two stars that led to Owens' exile from Philadelphia.

(http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/465/picture0467785019jf.jpg)

In the book, Owens paints McNabb as a hypocrite, a weak leader and someone who was jealous of Owens and blocked Owens' return to the Eagles after a four-game suspension.

And Owens paints himself as a heroic but sometimes flawed figure who was wronged by McNabb, arbitrator Richard Bloch, coach Andy Reid and the Eagles.

"I accept that I played a role in tearing apart the Eagles season, but the blame was not all mine," Owens said.

But Owens puts most of the blame on McNabb.

Owens' public criticisms of McNabb last fall directly led to the end of the All-Pro receiver's career in Philadelphia.

Giants Game Was Beginning Of Feud

In the book, Owens says it was one play in a game in a 27-6 win over the New York Giants in November 2004 that upset Owens and convinced him that McNabb was jealous.

"I couldn't believe it," Owens said about a pass play where McNabb decided not to throw him the ball. "Donovan had time to get the ball to me. … Donovan ignored me, he ignored Coach Reid's design."

Owens said he returned to the huddle and ask McNabb about the play, and McNabb responded with an obscenity to Owens in front of teammates.

In his opinion, Owens then knew McNabb was deeply jealous of his popularity in Philadelphia.

"I was getting so much of the Philadelphia glory that used to be his," Owens said.

Owens then said he got into a confrontation with McNabb after the Giants game in the Meadowlands locker room and running back Dorsey Levens broke up the two men.

"Donovan was never the same with me again; things were only going to get worse," Owens added.

Owens Compares Himself To Willis Reed

Owens also claims that McNabb downplayed his role on the team after that and blames McNabb for turnovers that led to the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.

He also compares his Super Bowl performance with the legendary performance of Knicks star Willis Reed, who helped his team win a title playing on one leg.

Owens also said it was his financial advisor who inspired to get try to redo his Eagles deal.

"I wanted to send a hungry, aggressive agent into the Eagles' nest," said Owens, who hired Drew Rosenhaus.

Owens also talks about his locker room fight with former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas and his soured relationship with Eagles head coach Andy Reid.

Owens also said he was deeply embarrassed that he was made to apologize about comments he made to a teen journalist about McNabb and the Eagles.

And that it was his decision to not include McNabb in that public apology for saying that Brett Favre was a better player.

"I knew at the time I would pay a big price for taking a stand."

Owens then claims that McNabb forced Reid to suspend Owens for the rest of the season by publicly saying the Eagles were better off without Owens after a loss to the Redskins.

And he also claims that the "majority" of Eagles players wanted him back on team, and that Reid made an effort to bring him back after Owens' suspension was announced.

But Owens believes McNabb forced Reid to drop that effort.

"McNabb viewed taking me back as an affront to his control of the team," Owens said.

Owens also said he was told by a team coach to careful around McNabb because the All-Pro quarterback got "nervous and tight" in big games.

A Costly Stand

Last year, Owens was suspended by the team for his conduct and the suspension was upheld by a league-appointed arbitrator Bloch.

Owens' antics, including the fight with Douglas and several media interviews that criticized McNabb, literally cost him millions in lost salary and bonus money.

The receiver also lifted weights for reporters last August in his front yard in Moorestown, N.J., after he was sent home from training camp for refusing to sign autographs for fans, including children, at a media event.

Owens was officially released this spring by the Eagles and he signed with the Dallas Cowboys, the Birds' bitter rivals.

Dallas and Philadelphia face off on October 8 in Philadelphia.

Was it televised?? GD Canadian TV :evil: Ah well, I heard Rayfield Wright have quite the speech too...deep shit.

Eagles locked up Darryl Dawkins for 2 years! The starters looked really good tonite but omgass. WTF? Jeff Garcia looked like shit. Hate to see Westbrook or McNabb go down. 16-10 Raiders top Eagles.

How about that MNF? Dunno about Tony Kornheiser doing broadcasts - he looked so outta place. Like "Hey! And I like Jessica Simpson!" ..didn't like the score at the bottom, middle part of the screen :/

And how about that new Fox graphics?? The top info bar was so hard to read :doh: I didn't even know what the score was.

The ref uniforms look hilarious too. Penguins? XD

It's football muthafuckaz - we're gonna watch even if there's no play by play.

Let's try NBC's one too...supposed to be interactive - I gotta check it out later.

NBC is launching an online fantasy football game tied to its much-hyped return to broadcasting the NFL this season. Fans will be able to sign up for the upcoming weekly game, Sunday Night Fantasy Football, starting on Aug. 18 at NBCSports.com or immediately at Rotoworld.com.

TO finally practiced today. Should Bledsoe start or should Tony Romo start for the Cowboys? Romo looked pretty damn good in the Seahawks game.

Kornheisher did sound pretty strange. His voice was so deep and out of place. I dunno....he'll figure something out. Hes TONY KORNHEISER!!! Wilbon must be jealous out of his ass.

Just like Tony said, they need to keep the Ref's stripes slim.

McNabb is talking alot isn't he?

But overall my team is STACKED! Hope Randy Moss tears some shit up. But Hasselback, Boldin, EJ, Jeremy Shockey...then again XD *checks free agent list*

I was watching some free NFL network and the new rules is interesting. How're they gonna enforce it? The No Fun League is at it again. Too much dancing, celebrating without the ball = 15 yard penalty XD And like taunting is totally outlawed. That's gay. A sack, stuffing the middle on 4th and inches.

Actually I just want Jones. So Jones for Jordan/McCardell.

EDIT: lol wtf Jordan is ranked 11 and Jones is ranked 23. Why is Jordan ranked so high...I feel like I'm getting ripped off. The trade should be just Jones for Jordan.

KC's defense was grinding it, but yeah - that O-line failed Trent Green fo sho. He said he couldn't remember that hit at all so hope he can recover in a few weeks.

Hasselback and Seattle's 9-6 win sure helped my Fantasy Team :lol:

The game itself was entertaining though.   Indy's defense is still shoddy, with all the yards on the ground and the big bombs they gave up.

Da Bears just killed the Seahawks last night. Would have been cool if Alexander was in the game, it would have make the score a little better.

Back to the Titans game, the guy had to have 30 stitches and the cut came dangerously close to his eye. I hope Jeff Fisher does something about this since the NFL will probably just give him a stiff fine and not suspend him.

Terrell Owens has learned the importance of playing nice - at least in print. The outspoken Dallas receiver is set to release his first children's book in mid-November. But the book, titled "Little T Learns to Share," will be a far cry from the tell-all book T.O. released in July.

T.O. dropped some passes so he needs to stop yapping his mouth. He is just a decoy for Glenn...who actually catches his balls.

Daigong has 2 wrong picks.

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: THUNDERDUCK on October 12, 2006, 04:08:18 AM
"Why Am I Here?"
The volatile receiver admits he's frustrated with his role on the Dallas Cowboys, but not simply because he's off to his worst start in years. According to T.O., he'd be fine if Dallas was winning and he had mediocre statistics.

It's the Cowboys' being 2-2 combined with the reduced numbers that he can't tolerate.

"I do have a problem when I don't feel like I'm involved enough," he said. "I know I can make a difference. That's not me being arrogant. I just know what I bring to the table. Otherwise, I wouldn't be here. ... I want to win. I came here to help this team win."

Owens spoke the entire 45 minutes the locker room was open to reporters, passionately describing his feelings on many subjects. He even revealed that the ongoing issues he's faced the last few months, from a hamstring injury in training camp to an accidental overdose, that have driven him to "sit in my house in the dark" instead of having much of a social life.

He never directly criticized quarterback Drew Bledsoe or coach Bill Parcells, the playbook or the play calling.

In fact, T.O. had few specific complaints - just the general one about not getting the ball enough.

"I haven't really gotten started yet," he said.

Owens has 17 catches for 232 yards and one touchdown. It's his fewest catches after four games since 1999 and his fewest yards at this point since 2002. His three-game streak without reaching the end zone is his longest drought since 2000.

In a loss Sunday against the Eagles, his former team, Owens caught only three passes for 45 yards. However, there were 13 passes thrown his way - five more than to any other Dallas receiver, Parcells noted Wednesday. Owens dropped one and two were intercepted, including one that likely would've been a touchdown.

"The opportunities are there," he said. "We're just not connecting."

Owens knew when he signed with Dallas in March he was joining an offense that wasn't designed to showcase a specific receiver. However, he acknowledged for the first time Wednesday he expected that to change for him - like it did in Philadelphia.

"Dude, I am playmaker," he said. "These guys know that. It's simple. ... Get the ball in the playmaker's hands."

Owens was mostly supportive of Bledsoe, especially considering how he's talked about his previous quarterbacks. He even added he is working on his route-running "to give the quarterback better looks, things of that nature."

"I think we all need to play better," Owens said. "That was one of the things he came up to me and said. Even after the game, he sent me a text that said, 'Stay with me,' he'll play better for me. You can only respect that. He's trying his best to get the ball to me in certain situations. It's hard when he has a lot of pressure on him."

Bledsoe reiterated Wednesday that T.O. is a quality receiver who wants the ball and the quarterback is happy to try getting it to him.

"I've never had a receiver, at least not one who is worth anything, that was happy with the number of times they touch the ball," Bledsoe said. "I told him when he got here, 'Listen, I don't expect you to be happy all the time. If you don't get to touch the ball enough, I don't expect you to like that. At the same time, you have to keep playing hard for me and give me good information when you come back.' And he's been very good about that."

Owens thinks he's been good about it, too, adding he's not trying "to come in and stir things up ... to create more controversy and distraction around here."

"I wouldn't say I'm unhappy," said Owens, who is making $10 million this season as part of a $25 million, three-year deal. "I'm not happy about the losing. I just feel like there's really an opportunity for something really special to happen here in Dallas with the team that we have. Once we get the nucleus of guys in the right positions to play and play as a unit, then we're going to be OK."

But is T.O. going to be OK?

"I don't go nowhere," he said. "I don't do nothing. It's frustrating. It's frustrating just to go (through) what I have been going through since training camp. I've had the hamstring. Then I break my hand. Then I go to the hospital. Then personal stuff.

"My way of venting is going out there on Sunday, trying to win ballgames. Now it's added frustration, especially when I know we have a good team. And the team we lost to, they know they should have lost. We made too many mistakes to win. We are stopping ourselves."

Owens watched the game film of the Eagles game with teammates Monday ("It was sickening," he said), then saw a replay of the Fox broadcast Tuesday night on the NFL Network.

He was still peeved Wednesday about some of the things discussed about him, especially the repeated shots of him barking at his teammates.

"The guys in the booth are saying, 'There he goes again, he's up to his old stuff again,"' he said. "It's very unfair. ... It makes me hesitant to try to do what I need to do."

Besides, if he wanted to really do something shocking and get across his message, he could always borrow from the repertoire of his Dallas predecessor, Keyshawn Johnson.

"I need to get a shirt - 'Give me the damn ball!"' Owens said, smiling wide and laughing. "I am just kidding. I am just kidding."

i think the Bears are for real... Rex Grossman throws up alot of prayers though. But there D is very good.  The Bears vs Cardinals didnt display a flook Bears team. Maybe there offense is a flook, but people are overlooking that MATT LEINART played a hell of a game.  He didn't turn the ball over at all.  MATT LEINART shoud have been a higher 1st round pick.  No he doesnt have Jay Cutlers arm, but he's accurate, make good decesions, can handle pressure, understands Defenseses, and has many other qualities that can't be measured by an NFL combine. Don't get me wrong, he doesn't have the athletic upside of Vince Young, but it think he is going to have a Tom Brady type impact.  He should be 2-0 as a starter for the Cardinals but Neil Racker can't make a kick anymore. Next year, the Cardinals will be one of the top offenses in the league.

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: THUNDERDUCK on November 30, 2006, 02:16:41 AM
T.O. loves Vanderjagt

"I don't see what he did wrong to warrant him being cut," Owens said Wednesday. "I hope it doesn't come back to haunt us. Whoever made that decision, I'm pretty sure they're hoping the same thing."

Vanderjagt was released Monday, only 11 games into a three-year, $5.4 million contract.

He was 13-of-18 on field goals, a 72.2 percent success rate that was the lowest of his nine-year career. However, he's still the most accurate kicker in league history (86.5 percent) and only one of his misses was completely botched; three hit the right upright and another was blocked.

The final straw was missing two kicks against his former team, Indianapolis, then barely making a 22-yarder against Tampa Bay. Coach Bill Parcells had lost confidence in Vanderjagt heading into the last month with the Cowboys (7-4) holding first place in the NFC East. Martin Gramatica was signed to take his place, despite his own struggles the last few years.

In their brief time as teammates, T.O. and the "idiot kicker," as Peyton Manning once called Vanderjagt, really hit it off. Owens said he's spoken with Vanderjagt since he was cut.

"Going into the Colts game, the guy was 12-of-15. That's still a high kicking percentage," Owens said. "He didn't lose any games for us. If I had to put myself in the mix, I feel like I lost some games and I'm still here, so it's just unfortunate."

Owens dropped a sure touchdown pass that would've broken open a game at Washington. Instead, Vanderjagt had a chance to win it with a last-second field goal, but a missed assignment by a linemen led to the kick being blocked and the Redskins wound up kicking the winning field goal. It was the only game Dallas lost when Vanderjagt missed a kick.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Thimas X on November 30, 2006, 05:30:31 AM
lol...I honestly think I've only seen one Dallas Cowboy player talk to Vanderjact this whole season on the sidelines...and that was T.O.

T.O. is such a good teammate. XD

Terrible effort from the Pats and the Colts. Both played like absolute crap.

The Pats have major offensive problems without reliable receivers and that offensive line was getting rocked.

The Colts better find an answer to their rushing defense (which I don't believe they will). I did a double-take when I saw the half time stat line for the Jaguars and they had two 100 yard rushers!

EAGLES STILL IN IT!! HOLY SHIT! WILD CARD BABY!!  I thought they were gonna blow that lead lol 21-3 became 21-19 :sweatdrop:

DUDE! Drew Brees was all over the place, and who the fuck is  Mike Karney, dude was rumbling stumbling all over. NO's 4th TD where Reggie Bush's 61 yard gain where he just took a right had me GO DYYAAAMMN!!!! even as the forum was crashed XD

Vince Young going nuts at the end, whipping Houston was an awesome moment, and Brett Favre's "firetruck" move (where he picks up a guy like John Cena) was so gay :lol:

GJ to Alex Smith and Frank Gore tearing the Seahawks a new one, Seattle's fucked up this year.

hmm..


RIP Lamar Hunt. Co-founder of the AFL, helped the merger the NFL, coined the term Super Bowl - always pushing and building the league better. 2 point conversion, Thanksgiving classic. Relevant to the day he went to the hospital WOW

(http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/2870/lamarhunt1cb0.jpg)

Wow...just hearing all the things about him, I do remember the story that he personally picked up this player from the airport. It's all about the relationships, that's how I run my life too. :)

I just never knew he founded the Bulls? Created the Dallas Texans when he wasn't allowed to buy the Cowboys and had to move em to Kansas City when losing a coin toss.

...

Random comments from MNF I wanted to say:
HOLY SHIT DEVIN HESTER! 2 PUNT RETURNS, duhhhhhhhhhhhhh 96 yards on the last one.

This rookie class is banging!! VY running into the endzone to win it in OT stands out for me, too many Reggie Bush TDs to count! WOOT, but yeah, I hate the Thursday/Saturday sked. Bryant Gumbel and Colinsworth SUCK as play by play crew. I like to take and think my picks out. Plot and manipulate my Fantasy team to the last minute. Ah well, NFL Network isn't too bad - weird I ain't getting the games tho :? BUT DUDES, you gotta check out

And he's a standup guy - FOCUSED. He could get 35 TDs in season! PLUS he can throw a TD or two, versatile like his name was Ice Cube.

I gotta admit, looked shaky with Philip Rivers and the conservative Martyball - but shit! TOSS it to Antonio Gates! but CHARGERS FAN! SHOW ME YOUR LIGHTNING BOLT! It's yer year! The defense and offense are clicking on all cylinders! Giving 110%

The Chargers should make it to the Super Bowl, but they can't do it all with LT(next Madden cover model). I can't believe Seattle lost to the Niners, unbelievable.

But you're right daigong, this is the best rookie class yet. Houston must be kicking themselves for not taking Reggie Bush in the draft. I remember the Titans-Texans game last week when one commentator said why Houston should have chosen Reggie. Vince Young should be rookie of the year, if not, it will be a travesty. Sean Payton should be coach of the year at NO.

Thats what happens when you talk shit to Owens. He burns you for 2 TDs and then he spits on you. haha

Dick Vermeil was in the booth for the first half of the game....and DAMN HIS VOICE WAS BAD. He was losing his voice and it was so damn raspy and annoying. Good thing Deion came in the second half and saved the day. Deion is a damn good on TV. I'd rather watch the countdown on the NFL network rather than the one on ESPN because of Prime Time.

Man....about Quincy Carter...I feel really bad for that guy. I didn't even know he still lived in Dallas. I know alot of people that liked Carter when he played for us. It's sad to see the state hes in right now.

BUTT that's why I like TO, he's straight up and honest. Won't beat around the bush or play games with you.

Any given Sunday, y'know? I think the Chargers would prolly whomp the Pats, but I think Pats match up with SD as good as anyone else in playoffs... Long as we don't gotta play Broncos first. Gah, they always beat us. >_<

NFC, I bet the Giants get that last spot. Can they really suck again this week? they've lost what, 7 out of 8 or some shit? Besides, tomorrow is my 8th wedding anniversary. I'll most likely not get to watch that Packers game and if it's an important one that will piss me off, haha.

Broncos cornerback shot and killed in drive-by

DENVER (AP) -- Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting early Monday, his limousine sprayed with bullets in downtown Denver.

Team spokesman Jim Saccomano said police called him about 3 a.m. from the scene and told him three people had been shot, and the 24-year-old Williams had been killed. The killing came hours after the Broncos were eliminated from the playoff race.

A little after 2 a.m., a white Hummer limousine was fired on from a vehicle that pulled up along its side, police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. There were at least eight bullet holes in the limo.

Three people in the limo were hit and were taken to hospitals, where one man was pronounced dead, Jackson said. The other man and woman who were shot were not identified.

Jackson said police were searching for suspects and interviewing witnesses.

ADVERTISEMENT
"We have no motive yet," Jackson said. "We're hoping to talk with witnesses to find out where they were coming from, and that might give us some clues."

Saccomano said he spoke with coach Mike Shanahan and others in the organization. Hours earlier, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime.

"Complete shock. We're speechless. It takes words away. A terrible tragedy," Saccomano said.

Pro Bowl player Champ Bailey was among the players and team staff members who gathered at Denver Health Medical Center, where Williams' body was taken.

"He had a big heart and a lot of courage," said Cedric Smith, assistant strength and conditioning coach. "It's a tragedy, a complete tragedy. It's sickening."

Williams teamed with Bailey to give Denver one of the top cornerback tandems in the NFL. Williams finished the season with 88 tackles, 78 of them solo, and four interceptions.

Players and coaches are off Monday. They were scheduled to meet Tuesday before heading home for the offseason.

On Sunday against the 49ers, Williams had three tackles and returned two punts for 50 yards before leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in the second half. After the game he said he was planning to wait a few weeks before determining if he needed an operation.

In December, Williams spoke of his desire to return to his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, this offseason to talk to kids about staying out of gangs.

Williams, a second-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State in 2005, made an immediate impact on the Broncos. He started nine times in his rookie season following a stellar college career.

AP Sports Writer Pat Graham in Denver contributed to this report.

I didn't know they had drive bys in Denver!!! But man that sucks so much.

Yeah, there's a few clubs downtown in Denver.. And, like pretty much anywhere where there are clubs, there are guys who think they're thugs. Mix it with lots of booze, and a late night (3 AM? Jeez), and you get trouble more often than not. It's sad that a guy with so much promise and so many people counting on him didn't have the common sense to stay away from that sort of situation.

FOXSports.com has learned that the Arizona Cardinals informed Denny Green Monday morning that he has been let go as head coach.
GM Rod Graves, who is also rumored to be on the hot seat, appears to be safe at this point.

Green led the team to a 5-11 record this season, a disappointing showing considering the many moves — most notably the signing of running back Edgerrin James and drafting of quarterback Matt Leinart — the team made during the off-season.

In Green's three seasons in Arizona, the team never finished better than 6-10 and was a combined 16-32 during that stretch.

The team could look to add a personnel guy along with a new head coach, as Green was integral in both roles.

The rest of the staff is meeting with management today to see what their fate will be.

I hope Pete Carroll takes the Cardinals job. Hes a good guy for any football job.

Mora just didn't seem the right stuff this year. Maybe Dan Reeves will come back to coach Vick.

Another coach that is on the hot seat is Nick Saban. Hes gonna make his decision tommorrow and it seems to be all about money. In December he kept denying the job to Alabama...NOW he is freakin considering. He better decline and stay in Miami or he will look like an NFL failure.

I am not a fan of Pete Carroll after the mess he created in New England. I'm glad he has done well at USC, but if he takes the Cardinal's coaching position I highly doubt he does anything significant there.

The problem with the Cardinal's starts at the top, and as long as the Bidwills are running the show I don't think any coach is going to be able to do too much there (same situation in Detroit).

Also, I believe the Cardinals need a stricter coach than someone like Pete Carroll. I remember back when Dave McGinnis was coaching the Cardinals and people were referring to training camp as the "country club" because he was so easy on his players. Pete Carroll is another "nice guy" coach that just doesn't suit such a bad team like the Cardinals.

But, even if he gets 150+ yards, KC will need touchdowns, not just sustained drives. I just don't think that KC's defense can stop Manning, and I don't think that KC will score enough, even if they do win the time of possession game. I hope like hell that I'm wrong on this one, because one of my greatest joys in life is watching Indy choke every year. Indy 28, KC 17

Dallas at Seattle: I have no confidence in either team here, but I can't help thinking that Dallas will lose this one, rather than Seattle winning it. The home crowd will help the 'hawks a bit, Romo will make a few bad plays, and neither defense will do much to stop the other team. Seattle wins, 34-27

NY Jets at New England: Feel free to skip to the next game, as I am a homer here and incredibly biased. Still here? Great! The Patriots are gonna stomp the Jets into the ground. The Jets have no running game and will be forced to win or lose the game in the air. There will be at least two interceptions by the New England defense. Tom Brady will have a statistically poor game, but fantasy season is over. The Pats win this one with screen passes and a fantastic defense. New England 31, Jets 10.

New York at Philadelphia: Eli Manning forces us to rename "The Peyton Manning Face" after this game. "The Manning Face" means that Eli loses this one as the New York teams go 0-2 this weekend. Tiki Barber has a great game in his swan song, but it's not enough as Brian Westbrook has a monster day with 250 total yards and a TD. Jeff Garcia is average but makes no mistakes, throwing one TD pass and sneaking for another score. Philadelphia 24, NY Giants 14.

Stay tuned this weekend as I post my apologies for being wrong in every game, rofl.

Well lets hope your wrong about Dallas. :)  But I do admit I have the same feelings you do for this team.  After the N'awlins game the team seems to just be on a downward spiral and losing to Detroit...come on. :evil:

DAMN sons.....feel sorry for all Cowboys fans, that was a SHITFUCKED way to go out. How about that big scramble in the endzone when Glenn got the ball poked out and cuz of Tatupu toucing the ball, it went from TD to Safety. The breaks just weren't there man. Can't blame it all on Romo.

(http://xs411.xs.to/xs411/07010/cowboys_seahawks_football_sea125.jpg)

I think Parcells is gonna resign. TO won't be back (I was kinda WTF NFL Network cut into Mike Holmgren's interview lol)

KC was so shitty. 255 vs 16 yards, that offensive line was WEAK. Ty Law couldn't return any interception for TD's cuz his blocking was WHERE? WHERE? I'm looking but I don't see NO BLOCKING!! Good luck against the Ravens lol

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Shibo on January 13, 2007, 05:08:50 AM
Ok, playoff prediction time again! I was 4-0 last week, but I guarantee a worse week this week, because... Well, I'm not very smart, haha. ^_^

Indianapolis at Baltimore: Ok, I know this sounds ridiculous when we're talking about the Indy defense, but I just don't think the Ravens are gonna be able to score very much... I'm not a believer in their offense. They're really gonna need to control the clock in this one and I don't think they will. And, yeah the Ravens have a smashmouth defense, blahblahblah. Indy scores points, and I just don't think that the Ravens can score enough to keep up.

Colts 27, Ravens 20

Philadelphia at New Orleans: The dome crowd will be loud, the announcers will spend the whole game talking about how inspirational this Saints story has been... And the Saints will fall just a *little* bit short. Jeff Garcia gets it done with short passes, and Westbrook has another great game as the Eagles win a close one that nobody expects them to win.

Eagles 24, Saints 20

Seattle at Chicago: There were about a million articles this week on why Rex Grossman is not a super bowl quarterback.. Maybe he's not, but he's good enough to beat a 9-7 Seattle team, at home, in bad weather. People seem to be forgetting that this Bears team only lost 3 games all year.. Great Bears defense in this one, and Hasselbeck and Alexander play the way they've been playing all year.. That's "not as good as last year", for anyone who hasn't noticed.

Bears 24, Seahawks 10

New England at San Diego: Yeah yeah, same as last week, a biased fan ignoring the obvious facts.. But let's not count out the three time super bowl champs, m'kay? Bill Belichick is known for being able to shut down one facet of a team's offense, and this week he'll be gunning for LT. If (and this is a big if) Belichick succeeds, the pressure will be on Phillip Rivers. Bill is famous for confusing the hell out of rookie QB's, rattling them, and forcing them into big mistakes. A few costly turnovers through the air could spell disaster for the Chargers. Can Martyball get to the super bowl? I say no. Tom Brady has another good game, New England spreads the field, and three different wide receivers catch touchdown passes. Corey Dillon runs for one score as well and the Pats win a close one.

Patriots 28, Chargers 24


Yeah, so I was undefeated last week.. So, I need to even it out this weekend, with an 0-4 performance, right? Enjoy the games, everyone!!
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: daigong on January 13, 2007, 04:48:29 PM
Nice one Shibo :thumbsup Ravens offense depends on aging McNair and Jamal Lewis.

Odango is gonna kill me but I'm gonna say Pats beat Chargers too now. Never bet against Brady and The Hooded One XD

I'm not saying anything else (I'm superstitious) i been watching previews all week on NFL Network.  The Eagles @ Saints game from this season was TOO close, give a take a break and shutting Joe Horn down. There coulda been a different outcome.

the colts/ravens game were defensive dominated. no td by either side. LOL at the swap at the end XD I never knew how awesome Ed Reed is. Vinatieri is such a clutch. Ravens offense sucked. except jamal lewis. Manning's a choker. He looked like Brett Favre. Slinging the football like that to Raven's D XD

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Shibo on January 15, 2007, 10:39:28 PM
This is the perfect time for next week's playoff predictions.. Stuck in the airport in Casper for 2 hours, on the way to being stuck in Denver for 4 hours since I'll miss my damn connection. >_<

New Orleans at Chicago:  This is gonna be a good game, I think. The question will be whether Chicago's defense can stop the #1 offense in the NFL, and whether a Bears team that scored only 3 points in the second half of that game last weekend against the Seahawks can put up enough points against the Saints. I think that america's sweethearts this year, the New Orleans Saints, put an end to the Bears' super bowl hopes on Sunday. Drew Brees should have some fun, and I'm looking for Colston to have a big game against a Bears defense that just hasn't been performing very well over the past few months. Grossman won't lose this game for the Bears, but he won't win it either. This game will end, and then we'll read articles from all of the experts asking why Cedric Benson didn't get the ball enough. I don't know why myself, but that's been the trend.

New Orleans 24, Chicago 17

New England at Indianapolis: Set your TIVOs, folks. It's time to record The Peyton Manning Face to show to your friends. It's AFC Championship game time, so we know what that means. A tough, tough game, and Mr. Manning looking pained and constipated as he continues his transformation into the second coming of Dan Marino. Indy won't have a lot of luck running the ball this week, and Manning will throw some key interceptions. This will be another great game, with Lawrence Moroney the star on the ground. Tom Brady will quietly and efficiently get it done, as the announcers spend all game gushing about the Colts. The game will be decided in the 4th quarter, and the New England Patriots will be heading to their 4th Super Bowl in 6 years.

New England 27, Indianapolis 24

Excerpt from an article on WWE.com.

Quote from: WWE.com
This season, the NFL’s Chicago Bears finished 13-3 and won their division, the NFC North. As a token of the division championship, starting offensive guard Ruben Brown purchased WWE Championships for the entire offensive line. Brown, along with many other Bears, is an avid WWE fan, and told WWE.com that the championship idea came partially from the offensive line’s on-the-field dominance.

well, i think donovan is being a little selfish here. the past, what five years?, he's been injured nearly every season. sure, he's taken them to the conference finals, but they haven't advanced. if he's feeling butt hurt for being left out, that's selfish because he's clearly not thinking about his teammates and is thinking only of himself.

Post by: thenik on February 05, 2007, 10:26:46 AM
It was a crazy first half. I've been pushing for the Colts but their very first o-drive, after the kickoff TD return, had me a bit nervous. It's was pretty sloppy, 5 fumbles, but exciting nevertheless. And I can't believe Rex botched two snaps. I think Tony Romo feels a little better about himself after seeing that - slightly different situations but both basic.

Grossman totally sucked seriously. The MVP-like 4 weeks he had in the beginning of the season was a fluke.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms are the worst commentators ever. They were soo boring.
Phil: "I don't think the rain will be a factor at today's game"
4 turnovers later.
Phil: "I guess it did factor a lil bit."

LOL FUCKING IDIOT. and no one cares about ur life story that you could still throw the football.

I like the pregame show about Brian Piccolo, Walter Payton and Hines Ward. So touching.

Bears fans booing Muhammad whenever he catches the ball?

Just to clear this up because I've been seeing it a lot today, Bears fans always say "Moose" when Muhammed catches it (it's his nickname). It just sounds like a boo.

Glad Manning and Harrison got a ring. They deserve it. I know the Edge (Edgerin James) stayed with the colts now. Don't feel to sorry for the Bears, i think they'll be back. The way Devin Hester broke the game open i though it was gonna be the Bears game. They didn't pressure Peyton Manning enough, they let him sit back, thats why they got picked apart. Game was crazy though, turnover after turnover.

Hell friggin yea COLTS!! Peyton’s finally above criticism. No more monkey on that back. My football senses tell me the colts win another 1-2 superbowls within the next 1-4 years. Maybe, who knows. Anyways the down to earth, classy Colts and Dungy deserve that ring, its about time.

A lot of people said this sb was boring, but I thought it was super fun to watch, especially with the slick weather, lots of slipin, and slidin. Waayy better then the Steelers vs Seahawks bowl imo. And the Prince show got me hooked.

Chokeman errr Grossman is who he is, an ok qb….people expected way to much from him especially going against a far superior AFC team.  Must be mad tough for him right now with all the media and criticism. But that’s the life of a QB. Oh and the chicago d got totally manhandled  by the colts o. props to Rhodes.

lovin' that purple rain.

i've got to actually completely disagree with you on that one...

i thot prince wasn't that great. it was pretty lackluster.  but that isn't a knock on prince, per se, but more on the whole super bowl halftime. i can't remember a good halftime in the past decade...

can someone tell me why rex grossman threw it to the MIDDLE of the field the last 5 minutes of the game? you're down by 2 scores, at LEAST. you need a TD!

i think lovie got outcoached and rex was crappy. why do you LOB footballs so high in the air? even *I* don't do that!! that's like football 101 of what not to do: lob the ball with the defender in front of your receiver....and how many times is he going to throw off that back foot?

PS, to anyone who says that rex had 20 completions, COUNT HOW MANY HE GOT in the last garbage time 3 minutes, when the colts just stopped defending! ridiculous. he only really had 10 completions. and he had THREE Turnovers.

to anyone who says the bears defense sucked: the bears defense, had to contend with their offense being on the field for like 2 minutes. every other minute was defense time.  even the BEST defense in the world will get tired if you had to play every friggin' minute.

in actuality, the dfense did pretty damn wel, until they gave up in the 4th because of GAME CHANGING Turnovers by grossman. their morale took a huge  hit because of those.

Lovie did get outcoached kinda because he stuck with the same gameplan. Dungy and his crew had to come up with a new one to win the game. Love thought the old gameplan would work...and it almost did. Rex sucked balls and threw those 2 floppers. Actually one of those could've been a TD but it didn't have enough juice.

I'm just really happy for Manning, Harrison, and Dungy. WOO HOO

and Lovie and G-man is not the cause of their defeat(well maybe some)

Rivera the def. coordinator sucks ballz!!!!

he placed like 2 safety's like 10 yards away from the offense

so manning like threw short passes

and they dominated the game

i can't believe that the COLTS hold the ball for like 25 mins!!!!!and BEARS have it for like less than 5 mins!!!!

they should fire Rivera

and use Griese for god sakes!!!!(theyre wasting alot of money on him and putting him on 2nd string)

btw i thought the BEARS would win with Hester's 92 yard TD return

sad memories.....:ONfrustrated:

oh wel..... there's always next year

and there's no way that the COLTS will repeat!!!!

Tomlinson's father killed in auto accident
February 24, 2007

Oliver Tomlinson Sr., 71, father of San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, is shown in his home in Lott, Texas, on Jan. 5, 2007. Tomlinson died in a pickup truck accident in Asa, Texas, Friday, Feb. 23, 2007.
AP - Feb 23, 7:54 pm EST
More Photos

WACO, Texas (AP) -- The father of NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson was killed Friday when the pickup truck in which he was riding flipped on a highway.

Oliver Tomlinson was killed at about 1:30 p.m. in the one-vehicle rollover, said Charlie Morgan, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman. Tomlinson was 71.

The driver, Ronald C. McClain was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center, where he later died, Morgan said. The 48-year-old McClain was Tomlinson's brother-in-law, authorities said.

The Department of Public Safety said that according to the accident report, McClain veered off the roadway and overcorrected, sending the car across the highway and into a ditch. The report does not mention a blown tire as initial accounts of the accident suggested. Both men were thrown from the truck, Morgan said.

Jewel Tomlinson, Oliver's wife and LaDainian's stepmother, said her husband and McClain had been returning to Waco after a trip to the family home in Tomlinson Hill, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported in its online edition Friday. She said Oliver, who lived in Chilton, had been staying in Waco recently while recovering from an illness.

LaDainian Tomlinson starred at Waco's University High School before going on to TCU and the San Diego Chargers.

The Bears gave up Thomas Jones for practically nothing but it seems like the market for RB's isn't what it used to be. With more teams using 2 RB's now like the Bears and Colts it's made it easier to trade for a RB but not to trade one away. I think any team would like to have a LT but having 2 RB's share the load comes much cheaper.

Detroit sure likes picking receivers. Calvin Johnson is supposed to be a sure thing. Good luck to him with the Lions. Cleveland gave up next year's 1st round pick to draft Brady Quinn but he wouldn't have slipped past KC @ 23. If that's the QB they really wanted then it's not a bad deal unless they stink next season and they lose a top 5 pick. I'm surprised to see Greg Olsen fall to the Bears @ 31. I thought someone was going to pick him way before that.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Nike suspended its lucrative contract with Michael Vick on Friday, while Reebok took the unprecedented step of stopping sales of his No. 7 jersey.

In another dose of bad news for the indicted quarterback, a top trading card company announced it was pulling Vick’s likeness from any new packs.

Facing protests from animal-rights groups, Nike announced it was suspending Vick’s endorsement deal without pay, as well as halting sales of Vick-related shoes and other products at its retail stores.

“Nike is concerned by the serious and highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick, and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent,” Nike spokesman Dean Stoyer said in a statement.

Reebok, the official uniform supplier of the NFL, said it would stop selling Vick’s replica jersey at retail stores and through its Web site.

Donruss, one of four major trading card companies, has decided to pull Vick’s card from any future 2007 releases, according to Beckett Media, which covers the collectibles industry.

All three hits came one day after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded not guilty to federal dogfighting charges in Richmond, Va. In the indictment, he was accused of sponsoring a gruesome operation that often shot, hanged, drowned or electrocuted losing dogs.

Since Vick has not been convicted of any crime, Nike left open the door to resume its business relationship with the star player if he’s acquitted. The company already had decided to suspend release of his fifth signature shoe, the Air Zoom Vick V.

“We do believe that Michael Vick should be afforded the same due process as any citizen in the United States,” the Nike statement said. “Therefore, we have not terminated our relationship.”

Vick signed with Nike in 2001, the same year Atlanta chose him as the NFL’s No. 1 overall draft pick. He led the Falcons to the NFC championship game during the 2004 season and last year became the first quarterback in league history to rush for 1,000 yards.

Vick is barred from the Falcons’ training camp while the league investigates his actions for possible violations of its new personal conduct policy. He is set for trial Nov. 26 and faces up to five years in prison.

The case began April 25 when investigators conducting a drug search at a massive home Vick built in rural Virginia found 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment typically used in dogfighting. They included a “rape stand” that holds aggressive dogs in place for mating and a “breakstick” used to pry open a dog’s mouth.

PETA — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — called off its planned protest at a dozen Niketown stores across the country next week.

“Regardless of Vick’s guilt or innocence in a court of law, the facts in this case clearly support this decision,” PETA said. “No company wants a spokesperson with a massive illegal dogfighting ring operating on his property, regardless of his level of involvement.”

The Humane Society of the United States said the companies couldn’t ignore the overwhelming opposition to having any association with Vick. He said some 165,000 e-mails were sent to Nike through the group’s Web site.

“I think there’s a direct relationship,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of the HSUS. “We asked them to do this and the pressure continued to build, especially as the facts of the indictment came out. It simply became an untenable position.”

There was no immediate response from the Vick camp. An after-hours phone message was left with his agent, Joel Segal, while unsuccessful attempts were made to reach his new attorney, Billy Martin, by phone and e-mail.

Although Reebok does not have a business relationship with Vick, the Massachusetts-based company serves as the official supplier of apparel and equipment to all 32 NFL teams. Through that deal, it holds the coveted rights to sell jerseys at the retail level.

“We just find the allegations very upsetting and very disturbing,” Reebok spokeswoman Denise Kaigler said. “While this is just the beginning of the legal process and we know that it has to have time to run its course, we felt that making this decision now was important and the right things to do.”
Reebok said it also was willing to take back any unsold Vick jerseys that are returned by retail outlets.

Kaigler said she already had received numerous e-mails in support of the decision. Even though numerous NFL players have run afoul of the law, this is the first time Reebok has stopped sales of an individual jersey.

“The number of e-mails and statements we’re getting from consumers was pretty telling about how disturbing people find these allegations to be,” Kaigler said.

Beckett Media reported on its Web site that Donruss dropped Vick’s card at the behest of owner Ann Powell, whose five dogs accompany her to work every day and have virtually free reign inside the company’s headquarters.

“If anybody who knows about the current Vick situation knows Donruss, they know that this is a decision we had to make because of Ann and her love of dogs,” company spokesman Scott Prusha told the Web site. “This decision came straight from Ann.”

Donruss had an autograph agreement with Vick, and much of the company’s plans for the remainder of the year included the insertion of both autograph and memorabilia cards bearing the quarterback’s picture.

Prusha said that “wasn’t even a consideration. We met as a company and the idea was brought up to pull him. There was no opposition from anybody in the room.”

Two more plead guilty; no word from Vick
/ FOXSports.com
Posted: 14 hours ago

It's up to Michael Vick now.
His last two co-defendants pleaded guilty Friday and implicated Vick in bankrolling gambling on dogfights. One of them said the Atlanta Falcons quarterback helped drown or hang dogs that didn't do well.

With his NFL career in jeopardy and a superseding indictment adding more charges in the works, that left Vick with a hard choice: Cutting his own deal to hold jail time under a year or go to trial and sit through detailed descriptions of the ghastly operation known as "Bad Newz Kennels."

Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Friday that, "It seems to be a pretty clear indication there will be some sort of plea entered."

Quanis Phillips of Atlanta and Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach entered plea agreements and agreed to testify against Vick. A third member of the dogfighting ring, Tony Taylor, struck a similar deal last month.

Vick's lawyers have been negotiating with prosecutors. One of Vick's attorneys, Lawrence Woodward, attended the plea hearings but declined to answer questions about the progress of the negotiations as he left the courthouse.

"Did you conspire with these folks to sponsor a dogfighting venture?" U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson asked Peace.


"Yes, sir," he replied.

As part of the plea agreements, Phillips and Peace signed statements that said Vick joined in executing at least eight dogs that didn't do well in test fights by various methods, including hanging and drowning.

"Peace, Phillips and Vick executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in 'testing' sessions at 1915 Moonlight Road by various methods, including hanging and drowning. All three participated in executing the dogs. Peace agrees and stipulates that these dogs all died as a result of the collective efforts of Peace, Phillips and Vick," Peace's statement said.

Vick also posed for a photo with three co-defendants and a pit bull they were about to sponsor in a dogfight in North Carolina four years ago, according to Peace's statement of facts.

It was unclear whether prosecutors — or anyone — has a copy of that photo.

Phillips and Peace also backed up Taylor's assertion that Vick was involved in gambling.

"The 'Bad Newz Kennels' operation and gambling monies were almost exclusively funded by Vick," according to statements by the two men.

Those allegations alone could trigger a lifetime ban under the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has barred Vick from the Falcons' training camp but has withheld further action while the league conducts its own investigation. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league had no comment on the latest pleas.

Peace and Phillips pleaded guilty to the same charge facing Vick: conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and conspiracy to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture. Sentencing was set for Nov. 30.

The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The men will get credit for accepting responsibility and cooperating with the government but would be penalized for animal brutality.

Peace remains free until sentencing, but Hudson found that Phillips violated the terms of his release by failing a drug test and ordered him jailed.

About 30 animal-rights activists protested quietly outside the courthouse. Afterward, as police officers cleared the scene, protesters continued waving large pictures of a mutilated dog.

"This is one dogfighting ring that's been annihilated," said John Goodwin, a spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States.

The four defendants all initially pleaded not guilty, and Vick issued a statement saying he looked forward to clearing his name.

The case began in April with a search of Vick's property in Surry County, a few miles from Vick's hometown of Newport News. Investigators seized dozens of pit bulls, some of them injured, and equipment typically used in dogfighting operations.

The four men were indicted July 17.

Michael Vick's NFL career is over.
By accepting a guilty plea today on those gruesome federal dog-fighting charges, Vick won't escape prison and he could be sentenced to more than a year. He will appear before U.S. Judge Henry Hudson next Monday morning for his plea hearing.

No details of the plea agreement have been made public, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has no choice but to indefinitely suspend Vick.

Vick's next big headache depends on how much he admits to being involved in gambling on dog-fighting, how heavily he was betting and what, if any, involvement there was from known gamblers. The NFL has historically come down very hard on players with ties to gambling (look no further than legends like Paul Hornung and Alex Karras). And Goodell is very concerned about the gambling aspects, especially in light of the recent NBA referee case.


The NFL doesn't like to acknowledge how many millions are bet every weekend on its games, but it does want fans to believe that the games are above scrutiny and the mere hint of a fix could potentially jeopardize the league's popularity.

Goodell could possibly suspend Vick for one season for dog-fighting and then another season for gambling. And these suspensions will come after Vick serves his prison sentence. If Vick spends this season in jail, it means Vick could be suspended for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. If he gets 18 months, he may be suspended through the 2010 season.

After that, what would motivate the NFL to allow him to play again? Even if Vick attempts to rehabilitate his image through an unprecedented amount of community service and charitable giving, how many owners would want to risk signing him after this? Besides, by 2010 Vick will be 30 and more than a little rusty.

Last week Vick attempted to get Goodell to agree to piggyback any possible suspension with potential prison time. Goodell was unwilling to commit to that course of action.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank wanted to suspend Vick when the indictment was handed down, but in order to recover any signing bonus money, the team needs Goodell to suspend Vick. Blank definitely feels betrayed by Vick, but another huge problem facing him is how will his fan base — 52 percent of his season ticket holders are African-American — react to the permanent loss of Vick, one of the league's most popular players. Some of Vick's fans in Atlanta actually believe that Vick was unfairly targeted by the Justice Department in this case.

But Vick dug his own hole here. Based on his plea, he lied to Goodell around the time of the draft when he said he was innocent of these charges. According to what his co-defendants said last Friday, Vick was killing dogs in April just prior to the draft.

And now it's likely all over for Michael Vick.

Since he entered the league in 2001, Vick has received more than $60 million in salary and endorsements. It's nothing short of ludicrous that he threw away such a career and earning power by being involved in an illegal dogfighting betting ring.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dallas quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, a former NFL quarterback, was suspended for five games by the NFL on Saturday for buying and using performance-enhancing substances.

Wilson said he took the drugs to try to improve the quality of his life after living with diabetes for more than 20 years.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said both Wilson's suspension and the suspension Friday of New England safety Rodney Harrison stemmed from the investigation by the Albany (N.Y.) district attorney's office. Authorities there have been looking into an Internet ring involving performance-enhancing drugs and allegedly involving athletes from a number of sports.

Aiello said the third NFL person involved in the investigation was Dr. Richard Ryzde, one of the Pittsburgh Steelers' team doctors. He had earlier been fired by the team.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Everett sustained a "catastrophic" and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills' season opener and is unlikely to walk again, the surgeon who operated on him Monday said.

"A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely," orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. "I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit."

Everett was hurt Sunday after he ducked his head while tackling the Denver Broncos' Domenik Hixon during the second-half kickoff. Everett dropped face-first to the ground after his helmet hit Hixon high on the left shoulder and side of the helmet.

Cappuccino noted the 25-year-old reserve tight end did have touch sensation throughout his body and also showed signs of movement. But he cautioned that Everett's injury was life-threatening because he was still susceptible to blood clots, infection and breathing failure.

Everett is in the intensive care unit of Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital, where he is under sedation and breathing through a respirator as doctors wait for the swelling to lessen. Cappuccino said it will take up to three days to determine the severity of the injury and the recovery process.

Cappuccino repaired a break between the third and fourth vertebrae and also alleviated the pressure on the spinal cord. In reconstructing his spine, doctors made a bone graft and inserted a plate, held in by four screws, and also inserted two small rods, held in place by another four screws.

Doctors, however, weren't able to repair all the damage.

Bills punter Brian Moorman immediately feared the worst when Everett showed no signs of movement as he was placed on a backboard and, with his head and body immobilized, carefully loaded into an ambulance.

"It brought tears to my eyes," Moorman said after practice. He said the sight of Everett's motionless body brought back memories of Mike Utley, the former Detroit Lions guard, who was paralyzed below the chest after injuring his neck in a collision during a 1991 game.

Utley, Moorman recalled, at least was able to give what's become a famous "thumbs up" sign as he was taken off the field. Everett didn't.

"That's what I was waiting for, and that's what everybody else was waiting for," Moorman said. "And to have to walk back to the sideline and not see that made for a tough time."

Utley, who lives in Washington state, was saddened to see replays of Everett's collision.

"I'm sorry this young man got hurt," Utley told The AP. "It wasn't a cheap shot. It was a great form tackle and that's it."

Cappuccino said Everett was alert and aware of the extent of his injuries.

"I told Kevin that the chances for a full neurologic recovery were bleak, dismal," said Cappuccino, who works for the Bills as a consultant, specializing in spinal surgery. "I was honest with him, and he told me, 'Do everything you can to help me."'

Cappuccino received permission to operate from Everett's mother, Patricia Dugas, who spoke by phone from her home in Houston. She and other family members arrived in Buffalo on Monday.

Buffalo's 2005 third-round draft pick out of Miami, Everett missed his rookie season because of a knee injury. He spent most of last year playing special teams. He was hoping to make an impact as a receiver.

The Bills now attempt to refocus while preparing to play at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

"It's difficult because you know the situation," said running back Anthony Thomas, one of Everett's best friends on the team. "We have to move on. But he'll always be in our thoughts and in our prayers."

Quarterback J.P. Losman said it was difficult to concentrate during practice.

"It seems like every couple of seconds that go by it's always popping into your head," Losman said. "Going through a walk-through, we're looking for him, wanting to hear his voice."

Coach Dick Jauron said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell called him Sunday evening, offering the league's support.

"We honor ourselves by our work, and we honor Kevin by moving forward and working while never forgetting Kevin and never getting him out of our thoughts and prayers," Jauron said. "We're going to wait and see what the outcome is here and we're really hoping and praying for the best."

I don't know, the Patriots just won two games and its a little to early judge. San Deigo is relying heavily on LT to score and everyone's top pick to make it to the playoff's, Saints, isn't doing that well. A few more games heading to midseason should determine who's great. :w00t:

"Kevin's trip went pretty good. He stayed awake the entire time. He's fine," Eric Armstead, a partner of Everett's agent, Brian Overstreet, told The Associated Press. "He's doing well and he's resting. That's the news: He's resting." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3029933)

The Steelers lost but Smith is still talking. Move on and let it go.

After their game against the Pats, I thought the Ravens would put up more of a fight against the Colts.

Love Smith now gets to tell everyone "Kyle Orton is our quarterback".

Fuckin Pats are prolly gonna smoke the record. Lemon and the Dolphins had no fuckin choice. Giants SUCK. Eli Manning can't even hold Peyton's jock let alone cut his meat.

The NFC is so balanced...anyone can win it, a turnover here and there. Look at how the Packers gor fucked up by the Bears. Anything can happen!

It would be interesting to see if the Patriots could run the entire table. if they win today but lose in the playoffs or superbowl it would be a huge disappointment for New England.  I would like to see NE lose but I don't see that happening.  You would have to play a perfect game against them to stand a chance. Giants might keep it close, but I still think the Patriots win this game.

Jacksonville   at     Pittsburgh  - Rooting for Jaguars, I think they dominate with the run game.
                     
NY Giants   at     Tampa Bay  - Bucs, I believe can pull it off, not sure though. It's a toss up.
                     
Tennessee   at     San Diego   - San Diego shouldn't have a problem with this game.

Hard for me to say this but, Congrats to the Giants, they did their thing and won the game. This is another disapointing end to a good season the cowboys had. Wade phillips still believe the wrong team one that game, but WE LOST.

Eli has finally arrived, lol and his older brother is home watching.
I am picking the giants to go to the superbowl, they are good on the road and the green bay packers cant avoid that. But if the weather is the same as the seahawk its going to be tuff.

Post by: Maikeru86 on January 15, 2008, 04:15:17 PM
Packers and Patriots look to be the 2 healthiest teams right now so it looks like thats how its gonna end up. But then again, The chargers have a pretty good pass rush off the edge with Phillips And Merriman, and now that chromartie is starting, they may have someone who can defend against that jump ball to Moss. As good as the Patriot Offense is, their defense is vulnerble against the run but you don't see it much because the Pats take the lead and everyone is caught playing catch up. . They also have some small corners. I'd go to Vincent Jackson over Ellis Hobbs all day. As much as i'd like to see the Pats go undefeated and make Mercury Morris eat his words, I wanna see Lt get a ring more.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: meowchi on January 15, 2008, 05:44:45 PM
The Pat's fans think Tom Brady and his Patriots of their all high and mighty, are unbeatable with their perfect record. I'm sorry, but NOBODY is perfect.

The Bolts will do their homework this week and believe you me, last years game is still fresh in their minds, especially LT's.

I like the match ups.

Moss vs Cromartie:
--the snow will not allow double moves. im betting on a pick or two

Maroney vs our defensive front:
--this may decide the game, it could go either way

LT or Turner vs their defensive front:
--this is a win for us. no way they can bang with our O-Line playing like they have for the last 2 months

Brady vs Lights out:
--i'd like to see him turn his back on Merriman while holding the ball. I cringe at the idea of watching America's sweetheart end up disfigured.

Let's pray LT, Rivers and Gates mend quickly and that their injuries aren't too significant! Although we won without them, it would be nice to have a full compliment, fully cocked and loaded team on Sunday.

Go Chargers!
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Sev on January 15, 2008, 09:42:44 PM
Aaah meowchi is confident! WOOO! Seriously, LT, Rivers and Gates definitly needs to heal up. I really wanna see them play on Sunday, and at their best. It's gonna be exciting that's for sure. I'm actually a bit nervous already, but yo, don't ask me who I'm rooting for, lol. I'm a Swede and I'm a slut, I can legitimately go either way at any time. Pats being my first (newb) favorite team doesn't really mean anything tho. So I think i'ma hafta slut out and go with the Chargers on Sunday, mostly coz it's more fun rooting for the underdog. That and the fact that Chargers vs Packers would be my ultimate supabowl. Yeah baby!

Oh I hope I'll see y'all in the chat on Sunday for some serious WOOOO-ing. Beers are on me! :rockon:

Post by: meowchi on January 17, 2008, 10:14:26 PM
"The Chargers got killed in week 2 they will get killed again." :roll:
I'm sure you guys heard at least one person say this. The Chargers played AWFUL in that game. They were at the beginning of 5-5 season where they were still getting used to Norv and Ted. Also at this point Cromartie hadn't emerged as one of the best CB in the NFL.

A lot of of peeps think our defense sucks because we give up a ton of yards- but we lead the NFL in turnovers for a reason - and those reasons showed up in the indy and tenn games. Pressure can affect the perfection of a passing game.

If the Patriots can protect the ball, then they should win, but the ball is shaped oblong for a reason and you never know which way it will bounce. So yes, we do have a chance to upset the high an' mighty Patriots.
Statistically over the past 8 weeks, the Chargers have outperformed the Pats... just goes to show how different this team is to the one that got stomped in week 2.

17-0? The best team very rarely wins the SB. Were the Colts the best team last year? Were the Steelers the best team before that? Were the 01 Patriots really better than the Rams? Were the Broncos better than the Packers? I'd have to say no to all of these.
Say we beat the Patriots, does one game make everyone believe San Diego is the best team in the league? The best team doesn't always win.

For a little history, here's something interesting to think about:

In 2003 the Patriots had the best record in the NFL, in 2004 they won the SB.
In 2004 the Steelers had the best record in the NFL, in 2005 they won the SB.
In 2005 the Colts had the best record in the NFL, in 2006 they won the SB.
In 2006 the Chargers had the best record in the NFL, in 2007 they ...?

Guess we'll find out.

Here's my late ASSessment that I was gonna write last week but someone had to turn 23.

EPIC play by Brett Favre. I been rooting for him all season as he broke records, made doubters into believers of his core of weapons. Then he shovel passes in the snow as he's falling on his face?

(http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/3029/getty78766794mw026seattqb7.jpg)

Look at who's also a Romosexual! Cowboys had EVERY chance to win man.
[youtube=425,350]mow7gXW0uog[/youtube]

With the NFC championship on the line, it won't be that easy. Antonio Pierce and Michael Strahan will be running all over the place. What Favre needs to do is hit those weak ass corners...tho they kept TO in check. Props to him for running on one stick again. Glenn was a step behind and Romo couldn't counter Manning's big day. But mark my words, The Mannings are gonna enjoy the super bowl at home and NOT in Phoenix.

AFC on the other hand. SHIT the Pats look too good. Randy Moss and his spiderman jammies will make Cromartie run in circles. Shawne Merriman BEST break Tom Brady - make all his kids flinch. Gisele pack your shovel, it's gonna be a long haul. The X FACTOR will be Michael Turner. Rivers all shrouded in whether he'll start or not lmao

DAMN! That was last weekend. This Sunday is gonna be OFF THE CHAIN! O0

You can't keep a legend down for long! Packers defending the cold turf of Lambeau Fields vs the Giants. I got Packers in a laugher. 34-14

Chargers have it in tough with the Pats but I'm rooting for ya. AVENGE the Eagles loss in Super Bowl XXXIX

NFC - Giants vs Packers

I'm rooting for the Packers to win this game. Favre is having one helluva season and it would be awesome if he had the opportunity to
de-rail and de-throne the Patriots in the Superbowl. Should be a close one though, as the weather is cold as hell in the frozen tundra that is Lambeau field. If Grant can run against a stingy defensive front then they can snatch the dub. Hopefully 20-17 Pack.

AFC - Chargers vs Patriots

How will this turn out? Well the favorites are the Pats by a large margin.  So I wouldn't be surprised if the Pats beat them by a good chunk.  I'm not a Chargers fan, but I'm sick of the Patriots winning.  How boring is it see to another Pats win? it's so redundant and mechanical.  And if they do win, they will be shoved down our throats as the "The Greatest Football team ever created!" as a Niner fan I don't want that.  Please somebody step up and beat these terminator's so that the City of Chump's can be silenced for once. 
Cromartie vs Moss should be one helluva a matchup.  Bolts and their D have a chance if they let Merriman loose on the Golden Boy.  And River's can talk all the smack he wants to if he can just put up points to match a record-breaking Pats offense.  I'm rooting for the Charger's in this game.


Go Packers!

Favre in gunslinger mode, throwing it into quadruple coverage. OUCH! Too many questionable calls, pass interference green bay? Dudes going offisides over and over. There's no way he's gonna retire!

Too bad LT wasn't 100%. Fuck all that talk abut him not being in cheerleader mode and wearing a visor all game. Whaddya want him to do? Play grabass all game? it's FUCKIN SUBZERO. Props to Rivers for playing the whole game, that's grit man.

Totally. Tom brady HAD a bad game ... 3 INTs. He can be had if you just fuckin RUSH him!! RICHARD SEYMOUR stomping on people.

Eli sure stepped it up, gotta give him that. But don't forget guys like Tuck, Pierce, Strahan, and Osi Umenyiora!

I ain't a Giants fan either. 12 sacks on the Eagles still HURTS.

Note this stats, 0-2 teams:

1993 Cowboys = WON
1996 Patriots = LOST
2001 Patriots = WON
2007 Giants = ??

DUN DUN DUN!! And what's this shit about Tom Brady going to a hair plug clinic in NYC with supermodel gf Gisele ... gotta love NY tabloids XD

I'm picking Giants nonetheless :P I can feeeeel the Tynes tonite!

The greatest NFL Quarterback statistically has called it a career, after 17 years. He ranks in my Top 3 all time: along with Warren Moon & Donovan McNabb

Brett Favre to Retire After 17 Years, Many NFL Passing Records

By Aaron Kuriloff

March 5 (Bloomberg) -- Brett Favre, statistically the most accomplished quarterback in National Football League history, will retire from the Green Bay Packers weeks after coming up one victory short of making the Super Bowl.

Favre, 38, said yesterday he would finish his career after 17 NFL seasons, 16 of them with Green Bay, where he won an unprecedented three NFL most-valuable player awards and a league championship after the 1996 season.

Favre was the most popular NFL player in a 2007 Harris Poll and the fourth-most popular athlete in the U.S., behind golfer Tiger Woods, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and former basketball all-star Michael Jordan.

``He has had one of the greatest careers in the history of the National Football League, and he is able to walk away from the game on his own terms -- not many players are able to do that,'' Packers General Manager Ted Thompson said yesterday in a televised news conference.

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said he spoke with Favre two nights ago and the quarterback said he felt mentally tired by the rigors of NFL life. Favre's only comment was a voice mail to ESPN, saying he was worn down.

Favre retires having completed 5,377 passes for 61,655 yards, 442 touchdowns and 288 interceptions, all NFL records. He was selected to nine Pro Bowls and holds the mark for wins by a starting quarterback, with 160. He also started 253 straight regular-season games, a record for NFL quarterbacks.

Trade to Packers

The native of Kiln, Mississippi, was selected in the second round of the 1991 NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons and traded to Green Bay after the season for a first-round draft choice. He replaced injured starter Don Majkowski in the first quarter of the third game and led the Packers to a 9-7 season, the team's second-best in 20 years.

Favre started every Green Bay game through 2007, leading the team to the Super Bowl after the 1996 and 1997 seasons. He won the NFL most-valuable player award each year from 1995-97.

Success made Favre a national icon. He ranks second among active football players on Marketing Evaluation Inc.'s Q Scores, which measure U.S. consumer awareness of celebrities and their marketability, behind Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and ahead of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Favre's longevity contributed to his popularity, said David Carter, executive director of the Sports Business Institute at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business. He said Favre also comes across on television as likeable and comfortable.

``He's a guy that a lot of folks could relate to -- scrappy,'' said Carter. ``He just seems very authentic. I think when you marry that with his consistency on the field, it's resulted in not just football fans, but consumers, having a high regard for him.''

Favre appeared as himself in 1998's highest-grossing comedy film, ``There's Something about Mary.'' In 2004, Men's Journal magazine called him the ``Toughest Guy in America.''

Division Title

Favre discussed retiring after each of the past several seasons. In 2007, he passed for 4,155 yards with 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions as the Packers won a division title after going 8-8 the previous year.

Green Bay lost the NFC championship to the New York Giants, 23-20 in overtime on Jan. 20, after Favre threw an interception that set up the winning field goal.

On the way to the division title, Favre broke records for passing yards and touchdowns held by former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino. He claimed the NFL record for career wins with 149 in the season's second week, breaking the mark held by John Elway.

His final victory included a play that characterized Favre's fearless, and sometimes reckless, style. Against Seattle in the divisional playoff round, Favre and the Packers faced third down and eight on the Seahawks' 14-yard line. As Favre stepped back to pass, Seahawks defensive end Brandon Mebane raced through the middle, grabbed Favre's jersey and tried to swing him to the ground.

Spin, Flip

Favre spun away and ran toward the right sideline. Just before falling face-first into the snow, he flipped the ball underhanded to Donald Lee, who ran for a first down and set up a touchdown run soon after. Favre after the game called the play ``a backbreaker'' that had about a 10 percent chance of success.

``His style of play was as unique as it was effective,'' Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said. ``You knew he was having fun when he played, and that made him fun to watch.''

McCarthy said he spoke yesterday with Favre's backup, Aaron Rodgers, who seemed ``surprised'' at the announcement. Rodgers has played in seven NFL games, with one touchdown pass, since the Packers took him in the first round of the 2005 draft.

Thompson said Favre seemed at peace with his decision and he doesn't expect the quarterback will change his mind. Thompson said he would discuss the team's future at another time.

``I know fans are absolutely devastated,'' he said. ``The Packers will move forward, but certainly we've all been blessed to see this man play the game the way he played it.''

Thompson said Favre's popularity came from his enthusiasm.

``I think he's the little boy in all of us,'' Thompson said. ``He plays the game like you would in the backyard.''

I'll be watching. I want to see who the Bears will draft. Most likely it'll be an offensive lineman in the 1st round.

If the Dolphins are going to pass on Matt Ryan, then they should pick Jake Long. They need help on the offensive line. Without a good line up front, it doesn't matter who your QB or RB is, you're not going to score many points.
Title: Re: Official NFL Thread

Title: Re: Official NFL Thread
Post by: Kamesan on April 25, 2008, 12:08:30 PM
Running backs tend to break down after a while. It wouldn't surprise me if Alexander ends up retiring.

I want the Bears to draft Rashard Mendenhall but they need an OT who can step in and play right away. They should be able to get a RB in a later round. Trading down and getting more picks is also a possibility. If the Bears don't grab Mendenhall, he likely won't slip past the Lions. It's possible another team exchanges picks with the Bears to get Mendenhall. The Bears need a 1st round pick in return though so they can still draft an OT.

Many people are down on the Bears picks but I like them. We needed a LT and Chris Williams is just that. If he can stay healthy, he should be our LT for many years to come. I really liked Rashard Mendenhall but I don't like the idea of investing 1st round money on a running back. They take too much of a beating during the season and most break down after a couple of years. Anyway, in today's NFL, you need multiple RB's and you can often find a steal in the later rounds. Some consider Matt Forte a reach in the 2nd round but from what I've read about him, he seems to be comparable to Thomas Jones.

Raiders WR Javon Walker hospitalized in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker was found unconscious on a Las Vegas street Monday after apparently being the victim of a robbery.

Police spokesman Bill Cassell said in a statement that the 29-year-old Walker was taken to a hospital with "significant injuries" after being found early Monday on a street off the Las Vegas Strip.

Cassell said Walker remained in fair condition at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.

A Raiders spokesman said the team was "in the process of gathering information" and had no further comment.

Walker signed a six-year, $55 million deal with the Raiders after being released by the Denver Broncos in February.

Walker injured his right knee for the second time in his career last season and was limited to eight games and 26 catches in 2007.

Walker was a first-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2001 and had a breakout season in 2004 with 89 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He tore a ligament in his right knee the next season and played only one game.

He was traded to Denver in 2006 and bounced back with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

Packers gaining confidence in Rodgers' strong arm

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The best evidence of how much Brett Favre's presence suffocated the attention of Packers outsiders resides in the right arm of Aaron Rodgers.

As it turns out, Rodgers has a very strong arm. He's had the strong arm since he's been in Green Bay. The football explodes off his hand on each throw in practice. Teammates have noticed it for years because they work with or against him in practice.

Thanks to the towering presence of No. 4, though, who knew?

Favre was a gunslinger from a different era. He was a master of the quick draw, a shootist. But in practice, quarterbacks don't square off at 30 yards and fire at each other. And, because no one expected Favre to miss a start, Rodgers barely caught the eyeball. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=3450317)

In a way, it's a good thing for Rodgers that Favre drew so much attention. It's let him work on and refine his game and throwing technique (everyone already knew he had the strength).  He's also had plenty of time to familiarize himself with the Packers' playbook and how their offense works. Come the start of the season, they sure as hell won't be coming in with some raw rookie.  :yep:

Glenn interested in resolving issues with Jones

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn introduced calm rhetoric into what has become an emotional standoff with owner Jerry Jones. The veteran player now seems interested in pursuing a resolution that might allow him to rejoin Tony Romo and Terrell Owens for the upcoming season in Dallas.

In a telephone conversation with ESPN on Tuesday, Glenn also more clearly defined the issues and provided insights into the impasse that has caused him to miss the team's minicamp this week just as it has separated him from his teammates throughout the offseason training program.

"I want Jerry to understand that I know he has the ultimate power in everything that goes on with the Cowboys, and I'm not trying to challenge him in any way, shape or form," Glenn said. "He can -- and will -- determine the outcome of this because it's ultimately his decision. But what I want is to remain a Cowboy. I've been here for five years and I've made Dallas my home, and I would love nothing more than to be a Dallas Cowboy."  (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3450728)

Walker out from hospital, recovering from robbery, beating

LAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders expect new receiver Javon Walker to be ready for training camp when he recovers from injuries incurred during a robbery in Las Vegas last weekend.

Raiders coach Lane Kiffin finally spoke to Walker by phone on Wednesday morning, more than two days after Walker was discovered unconscious and beaten on a back street near the Las Vegas Strip following a night of partying. Walker was released from a hospital after treatment for a concussion and facial injuries.

"The info that I have is he's going to be fine," Kiffin said. "Training camp won't be an issue. ... But until our guys look at him, I don't want to say [the extent of Walker's injuries]." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3450391)

Gruden comfortable with Bucs' controlled chaos

In light of the events of the last few months, it might be easy to forget that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the reigning NFC South champions.

Maybe they only look like a team in total disarray right now. They've got quarterback Jeff Garcia and running back Earnest Graham making lots of noise about their desire for new contracts. Quarterback Chris Simms is begging the team to release him so he can get a fresh start to his career. A large chunk of the fan base is outraged by the re-signing of troubled tight end Jerramy Stevens and rising ticket prices.

If you listen to local talk radio or read the newspapers, it's become obvious that the lifetime pass coach Jon Gruden got for winning a Super Bowl has expired. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=yasinskas_pat&id=3450814)

Bears sign Harris to 4-year extension worth $40M

Cross one -- and perhaps the most pressing -- item off Chicago's 2008 offseason to-do list.

The Bears have agreed with defensive tackle Tommie Harris on a four-year extension through 2012 worth approximately $40 million, including $18 million in guarantees and $27 million over three years, according to sources familiar with negotiations. The extension makes Harris the highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL and in history. The contract is the richest in team history.

Chicago has been engaged in negotiations with representatives for arguably its three most important players -- Harris, linebacker Brian Urlacher and wide receiver/returner Devin Hester. Urlacher, considered by many to be the face of the franchise, signed for four more seasons but would like his contract upgraded. Hester had outperformed the four-year pact he signed as a second-round pick in 2006. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3453129)

Improved running game shaping up for Texans

Gary Kubiak is ready for the Texans to make their first true playoff run, and the key word is run. Kubiak hired blocking guru Alex Gibbs to revamp the offensive line and install his athletic, attacking zone-blocking scheme. Though much of the success of the running offense depends on the health of veteran running back Ahman Green, the early reviews of the transition along the line are good.

Upstart Titans not resting on laurels

Even though the Titans were a surprise team in 2007 with 10 wins and a trip to the playoffs, they made a lot of changes.

Mike Heimerdinger replaced Norm Chow as offensive coordinator. The Titans wiped out seven of the eight remaining members of the 2004 draft class. They traded troubled cornerback Pacman Jones. Longtime guard Benji Olson retired. The Titans hope the changes will allow new players to emerge, which in turn will help the team take the next stop.

No more Pacman? Embattled Cowboys CB Jones drops nickname

FORT WORTH, Texas -- No more "Pacman"?

That would be the preference of Adam Jones, the suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback who has been known by the nickname throughout his life. He'd like to be called by his given name and make "Pacman" a thing of the past.

"There's really just a lot of negativity behind it," Jones said. "It's just time for a change, man. I'm doing everything to make sure that I'm all right as a person, mentally and emotionally." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3456093)

Iowa town turns to football to recover from tornado

PARKERSBURG, Iowa -- Step-by-step, Jared DeVries walks deeper into the nightmare that is his former high school. Every time his white cross trainers hit the ground, he is greeted by another noise: the crackling of broken glass here and the squish of wet ceiling tiles there.

The Detroit Lions defensive end has read the articles, seen the pictures and watched the videos. His friends and family warned him about what to expect.

It was a just about four weeks ago, on the evening of May 25, when an EF5 tornado, three-quarters of a mile wide, with winds in excess of 200 mph, ripped through this community of 1,900, destroying or damaging nearly half the town. The tornado, which stayed in Parkersburg for 34 seconds before traveling another 43 miles, killed six people and leveled 21 businesses, the city hall and the heart of the community: Aplington-Parkersburg High School.

Job No. 1 for the Tennessee Titans' new offensive coordinator was to help Young get his feet under him so he could play better. It's also an apt metaphor for the face of the franchise as Young searches for his balance heading into his third season.

Walker's world has taken a turn that worries Sherman, the Dallas Cowboys' receivers coach and a longtime Walker mentor.

Upon Further Review: Cowboys end Lambeau skid

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- We can finally put to bed one of flimsiest pregame storylines in recent memory. People who I know in the business, some with solid credentials, honestly thought the Cowboys would lose to the Packers because they'd never won at historic Lambeau Field.

Never mind the fact that the last championship-caliber team to roll through here played the Packers in the 1967 Ice Bowl. By my count, Sunday's wind chill was approximately 91 degrees higher than that fateful December day, and only a handful of players in the Cowboys' locker room could tell you the score of that game.

Rivers outshines his boyhood hero

SAN DIEGO -- Philip Rivers is a big Brett Favre guy.

Rivers, 26, has followed Favre, 38, since he was a ball boy for his father's high school team in Alabama. He couldn't get enough of Favre. What was there not to like? Favre was a Southern boy just like him. He was a son of a football coach. Most of all, he was a gunslinger quarterback. Rivers was sold.

This summer, when Favre's saga in Green Bay was in full insanity mode, Rivers politely declined to comment on the situation out of respect for Favre. He meant that much to Rivers. Monday before the game, the two men spoke on the field for several minutes. It was easy to tell it was a big moment for the smiling Rivers.

Ravens accuse Browns of intentionally injuring McGahee

The Baltimore Ravens accused certain Cleveland players of intentionally gouging the eyes of tailback Willis McGahee on two occasions in last Sunday's 28-10 victory against the Browns.

The Ravens reported the incidents by sending tapes to the league office earlier this week.

"We talked to the league," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly news conference Wednesday. "We asked them for their opinion on what happened, and we're waiting to hear back on it."

The Ravens are withholding the names they reported to the NFL. But in reviewing the tape, Cleveland middle linebacker Andra Davis is one of the players in question. Davis can be seen reaching under McGahee's visor and poking him in the right eye during a tackle near the goal line midway through the third quarter.

It is unknown who the Ravens believe is the second culprit, but they believe there were two separate cases Sunday that were intentional.

McGahee rushed for 64 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown in the victory against the Browns. So far, he has had limited participation in practice this week because of his eye injury.

"That thing is swollen up badly," Harbaugh said. "As long as he can see, he'll play. But if he can't see, he's not going to be able to play. So we'll have to try to get that swelling down."

This weekend, Baltimore (2-0) has a big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) on Monday night in a battle for sole possession of first place in the AFC North. The teams split their season series last year.

Redskins can join elite ranks by slaying NFC East beasts

When the regular season opened Sept. 4, the Redskins didn't look completely ready for prime time.

First-year coach Jim Zorn was making his debut as a playcaller. Quarterback Jason Campbell wasn't crisp making his reads and running the offense. The offensive line struggled. Of course, the Redskins were going against the Super Bowl champion Giants, whose defense can make a lot of offenses look offensive.

Washington's fortunes have improved considerably since that 16-7 loss in the Meadowlands. The Redskins have recorded home victories over the Saints and the Cardinals, and their offense is showing signs of explosiveness.

Now, the Skins embark on their most important two-game road trip of the season. It starts Sunday in Dallas and concludes in Week 5 in Philadelphia. If they win at least one of those games, the Redskins will establish themselves as contenders for the NFC East title. Losing both will make them 0-3 in the division and extreme long shots.

Russell's growth endangered by Davis-Kiffin duel

The clock might be ticking on the job security of Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin, but let's not forget about one important thing that seems to be getting lost in the bad blood between him and owner Al Davis: the development of second-year quarterback JaMarcus Russell.

It's one thing for Davis to tire of another head coach, a seemingly annual occurrence. But this is the same owner who used the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft on a quarterback who eventually received $30 million in guaranteed money. If Davis wants to keep bouncing coaches out of Oakland, he needs to be aware of the impact that revolving door could have on his investment. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?id=3610593)

Report: Cowboys put foot down on Jones' public appearances

There have been no reports of problems for Adam "Pacman" Jones in his second chance at an NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. And the team apparently is willing to be cautious to keep it that way.

According to a source, the Cowboys, concerned that Jones has been raising his public profile a bit too much of late, put a stop to his appearance at a celebrity beach volleyball match last weekend, The (Fort Worth) Star-Telegram reported. Jones was expected to headline the event along with Dallas Mavericks forward Brandon Bass.

Team owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys want Jones to keep a low profile and focus on rebuilding his image on the field, according to the report.

"What we are doing is trying not to be as visible," he said, the newspaper reported. "It's in his best interest to keep that profile low."

Jones has taken part in a number of charitable events as he continues working to repair an image tarnished by numerous run-ins with the law and a suspension from the NFL for the 2007 season. Proceeds from the beach volleyball event he was scheduled to attend were also earmarked for charity.

Cowboys nose tackle Tank Johnson, who is one of Jones' closest friends on the team and himself a player who has run into trouble, said it's a situation that Jones has to deal with for now, according to the Star-Telegram.

"We are trying to protect each other from being in the wrong situation," Johnson said, according to the report. "They are trying to protect you. If Jerry [Jones] wants to protect us and he feels it's not in our best interest to be there ... they are protecting you. As a little kid, you might throw a fit. As a grown man, you know it's in our best interest."

Jones leads the Cowboys with eight pass deflections and is eighth on the team in tackles with 15.

Romo 'down' after suffering broken pinkie in Cowboys' OT loss

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has a broken finger on his throwing hand and could be out for up to four weeks.

Romo, who had started 30 straight regular-season games since replacing Drew Bledsoe in 2006, broke his right pinkie on the first play of overtime in a 30-24 loss at Arizona on Sunday.

"We don't know how long he'll be out. It depends on how fast that heals," coach Wade Phillips said Monday. "I'd say week to week, depending on quickly he heals. Different people heal differently." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3640890)

Pacman suspended at least 4 games for violating conduct policy

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has been suspended for at least four games for his most recent violation of the league's personal conduct policy, the NFL announced Tuesday.

In announcing his decision, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Jones' "disturbing pattern of behavior was clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL."

Goodell will determine the final length of Jones' suspension following the Cowboys' Week 11 game against Washington on Nov. 16, the league said.

In his latest transgression, Jones was involved in an alcohol-related physical altercation at a Dallas hotel on Oct. 8 that resulted in hotel employees calling the police.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season for multiple violations of the league's personal conduct policy. In reinstating Jones on Aug. 28, Goodell said that the player's participation in the NFL depended on demonstrating that he can conduct himself in a socially responsible manner, avoiding any other conduct that brings disrespect to himself, his team, or the NFL.

The decision on whether Jones can return to play this season will be based on his strict compliance with his NFL and Cowboys treatment plans as well as on evaluations of Jones' progress that will be provided to Goodell by clinical experts retained by the NFL.

Chiefs RB Johnson charged with pushing woman on side of head in February

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been charged with simple assault for allegedly pushing a woman at a Kansas City nightclub in February, the third time he has faced assault charges against a woman.

Citing police and court documents, the Kansas City Star reported that a 26-year-old woman accused Johnson, 28, of pushing her on the side of the head at a nightclub on Feb. 24, 2008.

Johnson is due to appear in Kansas City Municipal Court on Dec. 3, and faces a maximum jail term of six months and a $500 fine.

Johnson's lawyer, Kevin E.J. Regan, told the newspaper that his client will be vindicated at trial. He claimed that the woman did not inform management, security officers or police at the club of the incident but waited 11 hours to report the alleged assault.

The Chiefs had no comment and Johnson was not available Tuesday, an off-day for the players.

Capt. Rich Lockhart, a Kansas City Police Department spokesman, said charges did not come for six months because the police force was working on more pressing cases. The delay made it difficult to find a witness, who was finally interviewed in July or August.

That witness then picked Johnson out of a lineup.

"One has to question the fairness of a lineup shown six months later, involving someone whose photograph is published often in the media," Regan said, according to the Star.

Johnson was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery in 2003 for allegedly waving a gun during an argument with a former girlfriend at his home. The charges were later dropped when he agreed to a domestic violence diversion program.

Charges against Johnson in 2005 were dropped after a woman who had accused him of pushing her to the ground at a Kansas City bar decided not to press charges and failed to appear in three court hearings.

Fans of winless Bengals flood site with tickets, some below face value

CINCINNATI -- Disappointed fans of the winless Cincinnati Bengals are trying to unload thousands of tickets for remaining home games, many of them well below face value.

The online ticket agency StubHub.com has 3,000 tickets for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. At least 4,000 tickets are available for each of the remaining games.

Some sellers don't care about making a profit. There are $64 tickets priced as low as $24.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, more than 4,100 tickets are unsold for the Bengals' Nov. 2 game against Jacksonville, and more than 5,000 tickets are currently available for games against Baltimore, Washington and Kansas City.

The Bengals are 0-6 after losing to the New York Jets last weekend.

Longtime fan Steve Carr told the Enquirer it's gotten so he can't even bear to watch the team on TV.

"It's not worth it," Carr, a longtime fan, told the newspaper. "I was yelling at the TV watching that game" Sunday, a 26-14 Cincinnati loss.

Coach Marvin Lewis said he shares that frustration and feels responsible, adding he hopes fans will wait patiently for a turnaround.

Cowboys add another Williams; T.O. will love this

On the same afternoon that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell trumped Jerry Jones' speedy internal investigation of last week's Pacman Jones incident with an indefinite suspension, the Cowboys' owner engineered a dramatic trade for Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams. ESPN's Ed Werder first reported that the deal was close to being consummated, and the Cowboys have now confirmed it.

It sounds as if Jones fought hard to keep his first-round pick, but in a rare "victory" for Lions management, they finally talked him out of it. The Cowboys gave up a first-round draft choice, a third and a sixth in exchange for Williams and the Lions' seventh-round pick in 2009.

Culpepper, Lions agree to two-year deal to put him at the helm

Less than two weeks after announcing that he's coming out of retirement, quarterback Daunte Culpepper has a new home.

Culpepper agreed Saturday to a two-year deal with the Detroit Lions. Terms of the deal, scheduled to be signed on Monday, are unknown.

Culpepper canceled a scheduled trip to Kansas City to instead visit the Lions earlier in the week.

Culpepper left the Lions on Tuesday without a deal but kept in touch, trying to find a home for this season and next season. After several days of negotiations, Culpepper agreed that Detroit was the best fit for him.

In September, Culpepper announced his retirement after being offered only one-year deals. Culpepper felt ignored despite his belief in his skills, and when he couldn't find a long-term home he announced his retirement at the age of 31.

In agreeing to a deal with Culpepper, the Lions have a quarterback to help finish this season and take them into next season. Culpepper, a former Vikings starter, has great knowledge of the NFC North.

Big win hurts so good for Steelers

LANDOVER, Md. -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger stood in a tunnel in FedEx Field laughing and talking to a small group of people on Monday night.

There was no sling on his injured right shoulder, and no grimace on his face after suffering an ailment that kept him out of half of Monday's game.

Even through aches and pains, big victories can serve as the perfect elixir.

Roethlisberger was knocked out of the game, but Pittsburgh still pulled off a convincing 23-6 road victory over the Washington Redskins for its most significant statement game of the season. Although there were no definitive answers on Roethlisberger's injury -- he didn't talk to the media following the game -- there was a sense from the Steelers that it wasn't serious.

Perhaps that was one reason why the 31-year-old Philadelphia Eagles quarterback didn't register to vote until this election.

McNabb, though, had met Barack Obama, believed in his ideas and supported his policies. Watching Obama deliver his victory speech at Grant Park brought back all sorts of memories. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3685206)

Broncos rookie RB Torain out for season with torn ACL

The Denver Broncos suffered a major loss in their 34-30 comeback win at Cleveland on Thursday.

Starting rookie running back Ryan Torain suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in the second quarter of the game. He will be lost for the season.

One of Torain's agents, Troy Asmus, said Friday afternoon that an MRI exam confirmed the injury. Asmus said the initial diagnosis was that Torain suffered a "clean tear" and that he should be ready for training camp in 2009.

That does nothing for Denver, which is 5-4 and leads the AFC West. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3688537)

Game mismanagement falls on 49ers, not ref

To hear coach Mike Singletary and offensive coordinator Mike Martz tell it, the San Francisco 49ers got a raw deal Monday night.

In reality, the 49ers might have been better off with ESPN's Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski managing the final four seconds of their 29-24 defeat to the Arizona Cardinals.

Romo ready to return, doesn't expect problems from broken pinkie

IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo laughed at the notion his return to the Dallas lineup will be the complete cure for the struggling Cowboys.

"We will find out on Sunday," Romo said. "A lot of different people may have gotten to a point where they feel we might not have a chance to do what we hoped to do at the beginning of the year. ... I think that is something that can bring a team together."

The Cowboys (5-4) have gone from Super Bowl favorites to third place in the NFC East by losing four of their last six. They are 1-2 since Romo broke the pinkie on his throwing hand but had the same record in the three games before he got hurt. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3699040)

Johnson wrestles his biggest foe: himself

 KANSAS CITY -- Just a few days before the start of training camp in 2006, Kansas City Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson strolled into the team's practice facility and stared at a surprising sight. There was his Pro Bowl running back, Larry Johnson, lifting weights alone. It was a scene that made Peterson smile proudly. While other players were enjoying their remaining time off, his star was preparing for his first full season as the foundation of the Chiefs' offense.

That story speaks to the essence of Johnson -- his determination and work ethic -- and it's one Peterson wished he could savor as he sat in his office last week. Instead, Peterson sank into a cushy leather chair behind a massive oak desk and carefully tried to find the right words to express his disappointment with Johnson, a player whose myriad off-the-field problems now have put his Chiefs career in jeopardy. Peterson talked about all the conversations he's had with Johnson, all the times he'd stood by Johnson when the public scrutinized him and the bond Peterson had forged with the running back in the process.

What Peterson didn't have to say was obvious: He was taking Johnson's current plight personally. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?id=3694547)

PITTSBURGH -- If the Cincinnati Bengals are seeking retribution for his hit that broke linebacker Keith Rivers' jaw last month, Hines Ward said they know where to find him Thursday night.

Revenge factor or not, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver expects it will be the Bengals -- as usual -- that end up getting the worst of the AFC North matchup physically.

"I always keep my head on a swivel," Ward said Tuesday. "It's football. ... Their heads should be on a swivel."

Some Bengals players hinted at payback after Ward's block ended Rivers' season during Pittsburgh's 38-10 victory on Oct. 19. Rivers, who can't oppose Ward again until next season, said, "You reap what you sow. What goes around comes around." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3711360)

Living Scared

A year after Sean Taylor's murder, NFL players still live in fear.

First comes the gate, a heavy metal barrier that halts visitors' cars about 100 feet from Clinton Portis' waterfront condo in Miami. It's manned by a security guard who reaches out from behind thick glass to check the ID of each driver and passenger, while high-tech cameras snap pictures of their faces and license plates, before allowing them to pass. The immaculately groomed grounds of cobblestone and palm trees are fortified with well-disguised cameras by the front door, the loading dock, the concierge desk and the private guest elevator. After navigating past those, plus a metal door secured with a dead bolt and a wall-mounted computerized alarm system, guests are finally allowed entry into Portis' sanctuary in the sky.

Enjoying a rare weekend off, the NFL's second-leading rusher is on his couch, yawning constantly while watching college football. He's wearing pajama pants, orange footies and a white T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of friend and departed Skins teammate Sean Taylor. Favoring a sore left knee, Portis shuffles across his marble floor to show off the views. To the east, windsurfers ride the glassy waters of the bay. To the west, Miami's skyline. And behind the blinds to the north: another shiny condo tower, where a woman stands on her balcony, peering directly at a startled Portis. (http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3711336)

Cowboys CB Jones expected to return Dec. 7 against Steelers

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The NFL is giving Adam "Pacman" Jones another chance.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday the suspended cornerback has been reinstated by league commissioner Roger Goodell, but he must miss two more games -- this Sunday and the following game on Thanksgiving. He'll be back Dec. 7 at Pittsburgh.

Goodell suspended Adam Jones indefinitely on Oct. 14, saying he'd put a timeframe on it after the cornerback missed at least four games. This decision means it will be a six-game suspension. Jones also missed the entire 2007 season. By the time he returns, he will have been suspended from 22 of a possible 28 games.

His yearlong suspension was for repeated legal troubles while with the Tennessee Titans. Over the offseason, he was traded to Dallas and then given another chance by Goodell. The Cowboys gave him a bodyguard to help keep him in line, but on Oct. 7, Jones got into an alcohol-related scuffle with the bodyguard during a private party at a Dallas hotel.

Now, he's getting another chance. The league did not immediately make any comment.

"He's just chomping at the bit to get back and come back and be successful," teammate Tank Johnson said Wednesday, before the announcement. "He knows we're all with him and we're never going to turn our back on him and as soon as he gets back it will be business as usual. I can't wait to have 21 next to me in the locker."

Jerry Jones said Adam Jones could return to practice Monday. The owner said the player would have "limited participation" this week, but would not be part of full-squad practices or conditioning.

Quarterback Tony Romo said Jones will be welcomed back into the locker room.

"When he was here he worked very hard and he helped us," Romo said. "He's a good football player and I don't see why you wouldn't welcome a guy back that works hard on the practice field."

Bengals deactivate Ocho Cinco for game against Steelers

PITTSBURGH -- The Cincinnati Bengals have deactivated receiver Chad Ocho Cinco for Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers for violation of a team rule.

The Bengals would not elaborate further on why Ocho Cinco was deactivated. The team said there will be no comment until after the game.

The Steelers (7-3) will host the Bengals (1-8-1) at 8:15 p.m. ET at Heinz Field.

Reserve receiver Chris Henry likely will start in place of Ocho Cinco.

Ocho Cinco had ankle surgery in June and a shoulder injury in August, and has not been as involved in the Bengals' offense as much as in previous years. Meanwhile, his former college teammate, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, has become the team's primary receiver.

Houshmandzadeh leads the NFL with 73 catches, and has four touchdowns. Ocho Cinco, a down-field threat in previous years, has 41 catches, none for more than 22 yards.

Livin' large ain't easy for an NFL big man

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The day ends at Taco Bell, which, in his world, sounds inevitable. Of course the big man retreats to food. He's gone to the car lot and tried to wedge himself into one of the tiny vehicles; he's strolled by the mall and the racks of clothes that won't fit him.

If Calvin Klein and Mini Cooper won't accept Langston Walker, surely Chalupa and MexiMelt will. Taco Bell, Walker explains, is a rare jewel in Buffalo, sort of like a coatless day in December. There are very few of them in town. The closest one to Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the Buffalo Bills, is a stomach-rumbling 15-minute haul in light traffic.

Ex-Lions WR Rogers agrees to substance abuse counseling

NOVI, Mich. -- Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has agreed to enroll in substance abuse counseling after violating his probation.

Rogers, who starred at Michigan State before the Lions made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 NFL draft, has been held in the Oakland County Jail since Wednesday. He will be released by 8 p.m. Monday.

The 27-year-old Rogers, from Saginaw, Mich., originally was arrested in September and charged with assault and battery involving a female acquaintance. He later pleaded no contest to trespassing.

Novi District Judge Brian MacKenzie says Rogers had been entered into a three-quarters treatment house as part of his probation. He later tested positive for the painkiller Vicodin.

LIKE YOU CAN'T STOP REGGIE BUSH FROM DOING YOUR WIFE/GF.

And just like nobody can stop DeAngelo Williams. FOUR FUCKING TD'S in one game. He almost won over the Giants all by himself. But yeah.. Fuck me. That was one hell of a game. I was up until 5:30AM (had to get up 6AM to go to work) for that game, and it was fucking worth every g'damn second. Damn.

Broncos vs Chargers next week then! Who gon go to the playoffs? My heart is with the Chargers, but only if they let Cutler get 4-5 TD's. I NEED TO WIN THE FANTASY LEAGUE. This season has been a Cinderella story unheard of ever before.

Nuff said.

Ps. Cutler is a cunt and made an end to my Cinderella story as a rookie dominating everyone. Next seasons is gonna be mine for sure. I'm going 16-0-0.Looks like the motherfucking champ I was born to be won. Sorry about the confusion, I counted Ai's Thighs score wrong.

BLEEDING CHARGER BLUE BABY.

The Chargers have finally shown, within the last several games, the promise that we, their fans expected to see after their terrific 2007 season. Our key players are finally healthy (with the exception of Merriman and boy do we miss him in the pass rush).

The Chargers have already gone further than anyone could have forseen when they were 4-8. The stars have aligned correctly and every little thing that needed to happen in order for the Chargers to go to the playoffs has happened. As a long-suffering fan who bleeds Charger blue, I for one, am proud of my team and what they have managed to accomplish--against all odds.

Remember...the Chargers only lost to the Colts on a field goal this year and the team the Colts faced early on in the year is not the same team the Broncs faced a few  nights ago.

Yes our secondary (what the hell happened to Antonio Cromartie this year?) and our pass rush still leave something to be desired--but with healthy players (all LT has needed all year long was a blocker big enough to give him a two second hole) and a fire to succeed, my Bolts could go all the way.

Props to LT, to Darren "Zoom Zoom" Sproles, Phillip Rivers, Jacob Hester, Vincent Jackson, Brandon Manumaleuna, Antwan Applewhite, Jamal "the Wall" Williams, Shaun Phillips, and Luis Castillo for their outstanding dedication to the game last night.

I love my CHARGERS! I'll be wearing my RIVERS jersey on Friday AND Saturday!! CHARGER PRIDE!! (http://www.google.com/images?q=tbn:AvkPIiIRUtl8EM::www.chriscreamer.com/images/logos/7/164/full/ba8afwzk8flb7xy0sya5.gif)

I just got one thing to say...
(http://www.imgur.com/files/090103/GREEN_wallpaper_1024x768_Defense.jpg)

Eagles also copied my "non shaving" 'tude lol..but I live and die with my Eagles. It was a long hard road to get here, and it took the Football Gods to align shit right. I'M JACKED THE FUCK UP!!

The only thing I'm worried about is the 3rd down conversions but the past month, it has steadily improved. And stopping the run versus Adrian Peterson?? 4th in the league stopping the likes of Marian Barber and Clinton Portis. Onlt that MANCHILD Brandon Jacobs rushed over 100 vs the Eagles in WEEK 10. But when Jim Johnson dials it up, Tavaris Jackson IS TOAST. ASSante Samuel will make the field, who the fuck sits out a playoff game?? Turnovers is key, B-Dawk, Sheldon Brown, Trent Cole, and Quintin Mikell will be popping and locking straight into the endzone. Oh, and the Eagles are first in the NFC in yards allowed (274.3 yards per game)

McNabb is gonna have plenty of time to operate the Offense. Westbrook has had an up and down season, but WILL make that big play(s). Buckhalter has come onto his own, and the offense is spread wider than Tori Black's eagle. DeSean Jackson, Greg Lewis, Kevin Curtis, even freaking Brent Celek  - all making that big play. It is McNabb that is gonna be key, bumbling the OT, counted out over and over again, he just keeps that positive vibe and "Kill Em With Kindness" as he says. He just picks himself up, and keeps shuffling, scrambling, making pinpoint passes. 2008 marks his highest passing yard total EVER, and that included his MVP-like season with TO. His size and legs will make Jared Allen and the Viking defense think twice before trying to rush him, Offensive Line NEEDS to play it's A game. Look for McNabb to hand it off more.

WHOA JPHiP.com's tama-chan is reporting that LT's groin is detached. I don't even wanna imagine what that looks like  :bleed eyes:

HOLLATCHABOY!!!

Gates and Tomlinson both questionable for an ankle and groin injury, respectively. Which obviously is a set back for the Chargers. There's no love in me for Rivers, but tonight, hopefully, he will get the fucking job done. I'm so seriously not staying up until 6AM again just to watch [Colt fans can stop reading now] Manning and his butt bitches make it through.

meow asked me to simulate the game on Madden 09 with the latest rosters and shit. I aint telling how it went.. It's just a fucking game and it don't matter what the outcome was COZ TONIGHT IS ALL ABOUT BABY BLUE AND THE THUNDER TEARING THEIR OPPONENTS ASUNDER!

SPROLES. GOD DAMMIT! That boy is fucking awesome. And what a game. Close right from the beginning to the end. As it mother fucking should be. The flags. Kaedings field goal. Sunshine Smile's 2 1st downs in the end. It all made a difference. But it was Speedy Gonzales Sproles who got the pleasure of sending the Colts back to wherever they came from. Mad props to butt bitch Manning tho. He did good. He did good for sure.

And Atlanta got the short end of the stick against Arizona. Not quite as an entertaining game imo, but not one sided at all. The Arizona D# was looking seriously slick. If they keep that up they might be in for a loooooong time. We'll see.

Now watch Minnesota make bird stew outta the Eagles and Baltimore (Sorry Maria) have their way with the Flippers.

How Gates went for back-to-back 1st downs is beyond me. Indy's defense must've been spent. Brainfarted at the end. Bob Sanders just wasn't himself. I fo sho Indy was gonna seal the deal. It was odd in OT man, like penalty after penaly like they making up for that Denver game...Refs made so many calls that the flow was wack as fuck, you just gotta let players play in the playoffs.

Hey Sev, Eagles D will make you shit outta your face by the time it reaches 5 pm PST. Yeah, Dawkins is DAT SCARY. It be the titanium skeleton.

No conspiracy. Every penalty was followed by evidence of the act, slow motion replays showing the penalties in action. You can only prove what you have seen. The Colts are also one of the leading teams in the NFL with penalties. Coincidence? Not at all.

So on that note, I've got zero sympathy for the Colts and that holding call. They are the ones who whined beyond belief when the Patriots were constantly beating them in the playoffs using that same tactic. Bill Polian was the one who led the charge to the the rules committee to make it a point of emphasis. They finally benefited from it in 2006 when they won it all and now they have to deal with the consequences when the call goes against them.

Ron Rivera did an amazing job calling the defense.
Mike Scifres really was the MVP, pinning the Colts down to the 2 at the end. Punters don't get much credit but this guy had an amazing game.
Sproles? The Colts will be haunted by 5'6" little smurfs running all over the place for the next year.

Specially this guy:

Yup, I agree-
Wins in a season don't tell the whole story. We won 14 two years ago and the Pats won 16 last year and neither earned a Super Bowl ring.

If the Steelers lose Sunday, they'll finish with 12 wins and they'll view their season as a disappointment, even with a 12-5 record.

If we win out, we'll have won 12 games too (and finish 12-8) but it will be considered a more impressive season.

Being a long-time Chargers fan has taught me to not underestimate any team and take nothing for granted. Our only Superbowl appearance was with a team that started 0-4. We started 4-8 this year and beat the hottest team in the NFL. We've also had great teams who faded in January and had their seasons end in disappointment.

We could very easily lose on Sunday - any sensible Chargers fan can appreciate that. However, any Steelers fan that thinks this upcoming game is a piece of cake doesn't remember our last playoff meetings.

In the NFL, the only way to win in the postseason is to play your best football, limit your own mistakes and capitalize on your opponent's mistakes.

I said it a few times and I'm holding with it. Chargers will win this weekends game as Baltimore (this is my wild card) and go AFC final. NYG and the Panthers will face eachother in NFC. -- Now Tennessee are looking awesome, but i have faith in the Ravens. So do I in meows Sunshine Smile & the Baby Blue's. Carolina on their hand should, I'm saying should, coz again, this is sports and you never know what happens, win against the Cards. And, sorry daigong, I think NYG will crush the Nuggits, I'm hoping otherwise, coz I have no love for the Giants.

I love you guys. I love sports. Everything and anything can happen. Can't wait till this weekend. WOOOOOOOO!!

Eagles too were counted out like the Chargers. A TEAM OF DESTINY. On any given Sunday - anything can happen! It was a defensive battle for 3.5 quarters and finally they broke through. Momentum is a bitch. Jim Johnson knows. I knows it. GIANTS KNOW IT? I don't think so.

(http://i43.tinypic.com/2vwbwg4.jpg)

This Sunday's matchup is gonna be a chess battle fo sho. Spagnuolo be under the Eagles tree until he became the "genius" of Giants D.

Eli and the Giants are in for a big beatdown. Manning is not as mobile as that 'epic' pass to Tyree vs the Patriots would make you think! Dawkins, Sheppard, Brown, ASSante, will swarm. Clemons and Cole are much larger than what the Giants have to offer. I am watching the NFL Network AS WE SPEAK and the gameplan is simple. Rush Manning and make he wish he really joined the Oreo licking league, keep McNabb protected like an extra thick condom a slippery cock. Jon Runyan will be BALLS cuz he won't let Just Fuck and the LBs penetrate.

That's the gayest post I ever made. I need to go wank to some Meiko Kaji :sweatdrop:

And hey TDUCK - with superstar coaches taking their pick, who knows. Shanahan and Cowher waiting for that big payoff. I suddenly got a JPH!P forum award in mind lol.

CHALLENGE!

You know what's a fuckin awesome challenge? Whoevers team makes it the farthest in the postseason has to get that OTHER dudes jersey. For example. If you a Cards fan and I'm a Panthers fan, if Panthers lose, Cards win, I gotta get a Cards jersey. AND WEAR IT! ALL WEEK. Without showering. Dude, I am so fucking evil   :tama-mad:

I think Sev already has that deal with the chargers! But i'll be cheering for the Eagles in that game... I just don't like Eli Manning (I'm San Diegan).

As for THE GAME- Bolts VS. Steelers? MY PREDICTIONS:
Close game.

Field will be the factor.
*Can Sproles and company be able to play through the rough weather conditions/field conditions.
*Can Rivers find his receivers?
*Can O-line Prevent Pass-Defense by Steelers?
*Can Chargers Defense get to Ben RottenBurger early and often...punch him in the mouth all game long and make him think instead of just sticking with game-plan?
*Can Norv find a way to utilize the Chargers offensive weapons?
*Can Ron Rivera find a way to beat the Steelers early?


I say Score will be:


Chargers-24 (3 TD's 1 FG)
Steelers-19 (4 FG's 1 TD)

Well. Our deal is that i get a Chargers jersey when the Baby Blue's win the bowl. And I'm down with that for sure. Finally gettin some colors.

Chargers-24 (3 TD's 1 FG)
Steelers-19 (4 FG's 1 TD)
DAMN! That's some in depth freaking predictions girl.

What can I say? You got it that detailed then I'm with you. I mean when you put it out like that then you cant be but right. And I will add that Sunshine Smile will score 2TD's in the game and LT the third. LT is out, Sunshine Smile is Q. I really hope he will play.

As for Eagles - GiAYants im not sure. I want McNabbet and the Chicken Nuggets to win but I think it'll be tough. We'll see. I'll pass on predicting anything there.

Todays games:
Bal @ Ten (19 - 17)
Ari @ Car (14 - 31)

Game's on in 3 hours. I can't wait.

And Titans - whoa. Ravens delivered. CJ being knocked out was hella key, but fuck wind to your back ya gotta do something - love that CFL reference on Westwood One with Marv Albert and Warren Moon. Giving The Eskimos PROPS!

33 - 13, Cardinals. I wonder who listened to the media more - the Cards or the Panthers? The Panthers looked like they thought all they had to do was show up and the Cards' will roll over and die. Cards looked like they felt they had something to prove to everybody.
Looking forward to the NFC Championship game.
Sev, sorry brotha- but it is what it is... maybe next year!!

It Happens again. Cards D leads the way to victory. Hat's off is the least I can do for them. Warner is looking good and the pass game is anything but bad. And when your D forces 5 turnovers, then you'll have a party.

meow said it on IRC, and it's true. It don't matter how you've performed in the reg season. Your team can be on the sickest win streak, and every element of your game can look spotless, but when playoffs begin you doubt yourself, you underestimate, look past the challenges ahead and you lose. Delhomme had his probably worst night since that late autumn day in '94 when he passed out at a party and woke up with penises drawn all over his face, a tabasco bottle in his butt and his wallet stolen. (this is a joke)

- Warner, Fitzgerald, Cards D#: You have proven yourself again. I salute you.
- Delhomme: Every time you throw an INT a panther kitten dies. You murderer.

meow: Don't worry. I get emotional for the moment (being a team player myself). It aint no thing tho. And you know I wont be rooting for no Panthers next year (probably). You know which way my colors are leaning. Baby Blue's baby!!!!!

This is sport. And this is why I love it more than anything else! And this is why I'm SERIOUSLY looking forward for tonight.

Sometime's I begin to think, especially when it comes to NFL, that every game should be thought of as 0-0. Look what happened to the Patriots last year, there's just no telling what can happen. You ALWAYS gotta treat the next team as it's the biggest game of the season if you wanna have a perfect record. (Of course it's a different case if you don't have a perfect rec and need to rest your guys, but that's a gametime decision, not a pre-game one.) It just makes more sense to do it in the playoffs cause it's 1 and you're out.

It was a great game with the Ravens makin' a drive late in the last quarter to set up for the field goal and not allowing the Titans to get into FG range. Good job. As for the Panthers game, their whole O was off sync. Steve Smith not making a catch until the last couple minutes of the 3rd quarter? At one point of the game, Delhomme had 5 completions and 3 interceptions. Give it up for off rhythm O coupled with good pressure D to make them give up the 6 TOs, 5 of them being interceptions. Not to mention the Cardinal's offense really stepping it up with sweet drives for the whole first half and most of the second.

Two good games yesterday, and two more great ones to look forward to today.

BUNKLY STICKING HIS HAND UP ELIS ASS!! BACK TO BACK $TH DOWN STOPPAGE! That was the play(s) of the game.

Eagles made it close with the 25-24 lead. But fuck, they shouldn't have hard blitz'd Warner when knowing he is the extreme. Not enough pressure. Fitzgerald madness. Drop passes. Bad routes. Injuries...esp. in the running game.

Ward got injured but they still pulled it off with ease. Maybe it was the pressure that got to young Flacco, or it just wasn't his day. Two strong D's facing off and an all out exciting match. Roth looked smooth on the field, moving like he was 100lbs lighter.

It's gonna be one great Super Bowl for sure. Not the teams i ever thought about picking. But who can't support Warner and his cards. I won't call it a cinderally story like Flacco and his Ravens could've made it, but one for the book for sure if the old man makes it through. Hightower, Fitzgerald.. you go boys.

Same with McNabb. For the life of me I hate Joe Buck. By the time the Cards went up by 20 in the 2nd quarter, we were getting montages of the last time the Cards Franchise won a title. Throughout, we were hearing how McNnabb was having a poor throwing day, that he coulda made a better throw. Always an Eagle fan. McNabb loyalist. Fuck those guys who vandalized his lawn.

(http://i44.tinypic.com/15rld6r.jpg)

How about Eagles getting a reciever who don't drop the ball?? He throws it low, behind them, so balls don't get picked off. Terrell Owens was an expert at this west coast offense passing style. Bullet passes like Favre.

Get Musin Muhammed, somebody with better hands than Hank Baskett or Greg Lewis.

I switched it to Marv Albert after and waddya know. Eagles took a 1 point lead in the fourth. Fuck Joe Buck. He makes Fox sports the shithole that it is.

NFL teams wary of undergrad QBs

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

 INDIANAPOLIS -- The fascinating part of the 2009 NFL draft isn't just that the four top-rated quarterbacks are underclassmen. The fascinating part will be how quickly the NFL can accept four quarterbacks who skipped their senior seasons.

Judging college quarterbacks is harder than ever. The spread offense totally has changed the college game. Thanks to the spread, quarterbacks operate out of shotgun formation. They complete higher percentage passes to a more diverse group of receivers. Completion percentage is as much a byproduct of the scheme as it is the quarterback, because there aren't enough good corners to line up on the pass-catchers.

Vick is in federal prison on felony charges related to dogfighting and is scheduled to be released in July. The Falcons have said they will try to trade him, though they could cut him and make him a free agent. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3922780)

Source: Cards offer Warner $10-12M

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

Arizona and quarterback Kurt Warner have not agree to a contract extension, but the Cardinals have crossed an important barrier. Arizone is now offering more than $10 million a year to keep him, according to a source.

Warner, whose accurate arm and flair for the passing game helped carry the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl appearance, is hoping to land a contract offer that would reflect that he is a top five quarterback. Top five quarterbacks make between $14 million and $16 million a year. The Cardinals, according to a source, are believed to be offering between $10 million and $12 million a year.

Warner threw for 4,583 yards and 30 touchdowns last season, completing 401 of 598 passes (67.1 percent).

Both sides have until Thursday night to reach a deal or he will be an unrestricted free agent starting Friday.

Report: Texans, Vikings talk trade

ESPN.com news services

The Texans and Vikings are close to a trade that would send quarterback Sage Rosenfels to Minnesota, possibly for a fourth-round draft pick, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.

This is the second consecutive year in which the Vikings have been interested in acquiring Rosenfels, who is near the end of his contract, to be their starting quarterback.

Rosenfels wanted to be traded to the Vikings last season in hopes of starting for a team that has Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor at running back and has led the NFL in run defense for two straight years. At the time, the Vikings reportedly offered a third-round draft choice, but the Texans wanted a second-round pick. Both teams denied an offer was made.

Minnesota already has quarterbacks Gus Frerotte and Tarvaris Jackson on its roster and will want to extend Rosenfels' contract if the trade is completed.

The Texans had no comment Monday on the report.

Trial date set for Kevin, Pat Williams

ESPN.com news services

A trial date has been set in the case of Minnesota Vikings defensive tackles Kevin and Pat Williams, who are fighting a proposed four-game suspension by the NFL for use of a banned substance.

The two Pro Bowl tackles went to federal court and were granted an injunction halting the suspensions in December, allowing them to finish the regular season and participate in the playoffs. They are seeking to have the suspensions overturned, and are asking for $10 million in damages.

U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson set a June 15 trial date in the case on Tuesday. According to Peter Ginsberg, a New York-based lawyer representing the pair, Magnuson also also denied the NFL's motion to delay discovery proceedings pending an appeal and will hear motions in the case on May 14.

Kevin and Pat Williams, who are not related, along with three New Orleans Saints players, were suspended after testing positive for bumetanide, a diuretic contained in the weight-loss supplement StarCaps. Bumetanide is banned because it can be used as a masking agent for steroids.

Bumetanide was not listed as an ingredient on the StarCaps label, and the players' union claims that the NFL did not properly inform players that the banned substance was contained in the supplement.

The NFL has maintained that it rightfully suspended the players under the league's collective bargaining agreement, claiming that StarCaps was listed among products that players were banned from endorsing.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported that NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an e-mail the league would proceed with discovery yet remained "confident that we will prevail in this case based on the merits of our positions."

In a letter included in the court filings, Kevin and Pat Williams admitted they used StarCaps to help them make a prescribed weight, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Both have a contract clause that pays a $400,000 bonus if they make a certain weight at several points during the season -- but the clause stipulates that the players not undertake any "last-minute weight reduction techniques," which included "use of diuretics."

Brooks is an 11-time Pro Bowler and a potential Hall of Famer. Wide receivers Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard, halfback Warrick Dunn and linebacker Cato June were also released.

"Our family and the entire Tampa Bay community owe Derrick an indescribable measure of gratitude for all that he has meant over the last 14 years," Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said in a statement. "His play on the field and leadership in the locker room helped resurrect our franchise and we look forward to celebrating his certain enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame."

With Raheem Morris taking over for Jon Gruden, the Bucs are apparently starting a youth movement and a major change in philosophies. They are also getting away from the Cover 2 defensive scheme that had been employed by former Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

Jim Bates has taken over the defense and is changing the style. In the Cover 2, Brooks was considered the perfect weakside linebacker. He was quick enough to cover the field and make most of the tackles.

He was a first-round pick of the Bucs in 1995 and never missed a game. He had 25 interceptions during his 14-year career in Tampa Bay.

Dolphins, Wilson agree to deal

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

The Miami Dolphins reached an agreement with former New York Giants and Oakland Raiders safety Gibril Wilson on Thursday. Terms weren't available, but according to a source, he agreed to a five-year deal.

In his first season with the Dolphins, football operations vice president Bill Parcells aggressively hit the market, signing guard Justin Smiley and others right after the free-agency period began. This year, Parcells is doing some of his best work before the start of free agency.

The signing of Wilson, along with the re-signings of tackle Vernon Carey and inside linebacker Channing Crowder, resolved three starting lineup issues as the Dolphins prepare for free agency.

Wilson signed a six-year, $39 million contract with the Raiders last season but was cut within the past week to clear cap room.

Report: Vick OK'd for home confinement

Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. -- Imprisoned NFL star Michael Vick will be allowed to finish his sentence under home confinement because there is no room at a halfway house for him, a government official told The Associated Press Thursday.

Vick is serving a 23-month sentence at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., after pleading guilty to bankrolling a dogfighting operation at a home he owned in eastern Virginia's Surry County. He also admitted to participating in the killing of several underperforming dogs. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3936529)

QB Collins to re-sign with Titans

ESPN.com news services

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans started free agency with a thud. They rebounded quickly by holding onto their starting quarterback.

Kerry Collins agreed to a new contract with the Titans on Friday after leading Tennessee to an NFL-best 13-3 record. The move was announced only hours after the Titans lost two-time All Pro Albert Haynesworth to Washington for a seven-year, $100 million deal.

"This is where I wanted to be, and my family loves Nashville," Collins said. "It is just part of the process. Free agency comes about, and there are lots of talks and rumors. At the end of the day, this is where I want to be, and I am happy it worked out." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3940451)

Sheppard likely to start for Jets

ESPN.com news services

The Philadelphia Eagles completed their expected trade of cornerback Lito Sheppard on Satuday, sending him to the New York Jets for two undisclosed draft picks.

Sources told ESPN.com Friday night that the Eagles are believed to be receiving a middle-round choice in the 2010 draft and conditional 2011 draft choice. The level of the 2011 choice will be determined by a number of factors, including Sheppard's 2009 playing time

"I am excited to be joining the Jets organization," Sheppard said in a statement. "It is a fresh new start, a new coach and a new system. I am looking forward to getting back to playing top notch football and bringing a winning attitude with me."

Sheppard, a first-round draft choice in 2002 draft, appeared in 93 games and started 53 of them. He has 253 tackles, two sacks, 18 interceptions, and 54 passes defensed. The recent re-signing of cornerback Joselio Hanson to a multiyear deal made Sheppard expendable for the Eagles.

In addition, Sheppard, 27, was supplanted last season by Asante Samuel, who had signed with the Eagles as a free agent.

Sheppard is expected to step right into the Jets' starting lineup at the cornerback spot opposite the one occupied by Darrelle Revis.

A seven-year veteran and two-time Pro Bowler, Sheppard played mostly in nickel and dime situations for the Eagles last year. He started three games, the fewest number of starts since his second season.

"We acquired a veteran corner with Pro Bowl ability," first-year Jets coach Rex Ryan said in a statement. "This young man has already gone to two Pro Bowls. He is a great athlete with the top end speed that we look for to play that position. We think he can match up with some of the best receivers in the game."

Cassel sent to Chiefs

Associated Press

The New England Patriots sent Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs and a message to their own fans: Don't worry about Tom Brady's knee.

One question, though, remained.

How could the Patriots obtain only a second-round draft choice for a solid, young quarterback and a 12-year veteran leader, linebacker Mike Vrabel?

That mystery persisted Saturday after the Patriots announced the trade for the 34th pick in this year's draft, which the Chiefs earned with a franchise-worst 2-14 record. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3942130)

Lions' Smith, Raiders' Cooper missing

ESPN.com news services

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Coast Guard was searching off Florida's Gulf Coast on Sunday for a fishing boat carrying NFL players Corey Smith and Marquis Cooper and two other men missing nearly a day in choppy seas.

Smith and Cooper were on a 21-foot vessel that left Clearwater Pass for a fishing trip Saturday morning and did not return as expected, the Coast Guard said Sunday. Crews used a helicopter and a 47-foot boat to search a 750-square mile area west of Clearwater Pass, but poor weather made the search difficult. Officials did not receive a distress signal from the missing craft.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports that the Coast Guard has added two Air Force helicopters, a C-130 transport plane, and an 87-foot Coast Guard cutter to the search. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3943945)

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The father of an NFL player among three men lost at sea said the Coast Guard's hopes are waning of finding survivors off the Florida Gulf Coast.

Bruce Cooper said Tuesday he still has hope, but the Coast Guard told families privately that officials weren't optimistic because of the time frame and possibility of hypothermia.

Cooper's son is Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper. The search for him, free-agent lineman Corey Smith and former college player William Bleakley entered its third day Tuesday.

The Coast Guard wouldn't publicly say whether they thought the men were still alive. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3947949)

Giants GM: Burress could return

Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Plaxico Burress could be welcomed back by the New York Giants -- if the Super Bowl star can straighten out his legal problems stemming from a weapons charge and get his life back in order.

"Right now he is still a Giant and if things work out and he's on board with what we want coming back, we'd love to have him back," general manager Jerry Reese said Tuesday.

Burress' future is cloudy because he faces an illegal weapons possession charge relating to a gunshot wound he accidentally inflicted on himself at a New York City nightclub in late November. He faces a mandatory 3½ years in prison if convicted. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3948827)

Source: James wants release

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

Arizona Cardinals halfback Edgerrin James contacted Cardinals general manager Rod Graves on Tuesday and pleaded with him to be released, according to a source.

James, who was benched in the middle of last season, is entering the final year of his contract and is scheduled to make $5 million. He had lost his job to Tim Hightower, so he figured he would be released by the first of March.

James' concern, the source said, is that he's entering the free-agent market too late, with a number of potential options already closed. Derrick Ward took away a chance to go to Tampa Bay when he signed a four-year, $17 million contract. Cedric Benson re-signed in Cincinnati on Tuesday with a two-year, $7 million deal. Fred Taylor took away an option in New England when he signed a two-year, $5 million deal.

James assumes he's not going to be with the team this season because he figures Hightower will be the starter and the Cardinals wouldn't want a $5 million backup. But as of Tuesday night, James remains part of the Cardinals.

James has rushed for 12,121 yards during his NFL career, including 1,159 and 1,222 yards during his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Last year, he had only 514 yards on 133 carries.

He is 30 years old and is entering his 11th season.

Young aims to regain starting job

ESPN.com news services

Vince Young's agent says the Tennessee Titans quarterback, who lost his starting job to veteran Kerry Collins early in the 2008 season, intends to stay in Nashville and win his job back, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported.

Young's agent, Major Adams, told the newspaper that the re-signing of Collins to a two-year, $14 million deal has only fueled Young's desire to prove himself on the field once more.

"That decision has no bearing on Vince's thinking,'' Adams said Wednesday, according to the report. "He is just trying to get himself together, not worrying about what they are doing with Kerry. That doesn't matter to him.

"Vince is not upset. He is not asking for a trade or anything. He loves the organization, loves [Titans owner] Bud Adams, and he wants to be in Tennessee," Adams said, according to the report. "But he still wants to play, and is approaching this offseason like he's going to.''

Young started the Titans' first game of the season, but was booed by the home fans and injured his knee. He played in two more games the rest of the season as Collins took over as starter and the Titans went 13-3 and won the AFC South.

But Young, who won the BCS championship at Texas and led the Titans to the playoffs in his first full year as a starter, is hungry to get back on the field, Adams said, according to The Tennessean.

"Vince wants to be the starter. He has started all his life, so he wants to start,'' Adams said, according to the report. "And he is preparing like he is going to start, doing all the things he needs to do.

"He looks hungrier to me than ever before. I don't know that he is doing more than he's ever done, but this is as early as he's ever started.''

Longtime Eagles LT Thomas joins the Jags

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Former Eagles Pro Bowl left tackle Tra Thomas has agreed to a three-year deal with the Jaguars, according to ESPN.com's John Clayton. Thomas went to four Pro Bowls with the Eagles and was a staple on the left side since the club took him in the first round of the '98 draft.

He wanted to stay in Philly, but the team didn't show a strong interest in re-signing him. The Eagles have shown once again that sentimentality doesn't mean much to them in terms of signing players. They didn't put up much of a fight (if any) to keep local hero Brian Dawkins and they weren't interested in paying an aging player to play left tackle.

So where does this leave Philly? Well, Andy Reid loves to talk about how he can turn guards into tackles. There's a chance the Eagles could move Shawn Andrews to left tackle and play his brother Stacy at right tackle, where Jon Runyan has played for years. I think that move could backfire. Shawn is trying to return after dealing with clinical depression and then a back injury last season. Is this really the best time to put him at the most important spot on the offensive line?

The Eagles have the Nos. 21 and 28 picks in next month's draft. You have to think they'll be thinking offensive line on at least one of those choices. But no matter what happens, the Jags ended up with a quality player. The only problem I could foresee is Thomas' adjustment to a more run-based offense. He's been used to playing in an offense that passes the ball about 65 percent of the time. At this point in his career, he's not an elite run blocker. And the Jags love to run the ball.

Rebuilding Rams release WR Holt

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

After they failed to gain trade value, the Rams announced Friday they have released wide receiver Torry Holt.

Holt had a $1.25 million roster bonus due March 17, and the Rams didn't plan to keep him at his $8 million salary. As they did earlier this week with left tackle Orlando Pace, the Rams parted ways with Holt.

"The Rams will forever be grateful for the way Torry Holt represented the Rams on the field and in the community," Rams owner Chip Rosenbloom said. "He is an All Pro in every sense of the word. Over the past 10 seasons, Torry has proven himself to be one of the finest wide receivers in league history. This is a difficult decision because Torry has meant so much to the organization. In my mind and for all Rams fans, Torry will always be a Ram and we wish him and his family nothing but the best as they move forward."

The releases of Holt and Pace cleared out $14 million of cap room for the Rams. Holt, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, ranks 11th on the league's all-time reception list with 869 catches. He started 147 games in 10 seasons.

Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch expects to be suspended by the NFL for his latest run-in with the law and added he's gotten the message that the league "won't tolerate any more screw-ups" from him.

Delivering a message of humility and repentance -- and minus the flashy gold grill he usually wears across his teeth -- Lynch vowed Wednesday that he's ready to change his ways and prepared to accept the consequences for his actions.

"It has kind of sunk in, and I felt that this was the next step to letting you guys know that there will be a change," Lynch said. "I never had the intention of getting into trouble or anything like that. But along the way my road got rocky, and now you know it's time to set my pavement straight."

The Detroit Lions will retire the number 93 for the 2009 football season in memory of player Corey Smith, one of three men lost when their fishing boat capsized off the Florida Gulf Coast three weeks ago.

Lions player development director Galen Duncan told several hundred mourners in Smith's hometown church Saturday that Smith's number would be retired for a year in honor of a player of extraordinary heart and competitive drive.

"I want to tell you something about Corey Smith playing with pain," Duncan said of Smith, who played with such abandon that high school teammates called him the Tasmanian Devil. (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090321/ap_on_sp_fo_ne/missing_boaters_nfl)

Jay Cutler has just been traded to the Bears per NFL.com. They gave up two firsts, a 3rd, and Kyle Orton for a 5th round pick and Cutler. Seems a bit steep but if they sign a stop-gap like Marvin Harrison or Torry Holt, they may just have a good offense. Article:


New home Chicago: Broncos ship disgruntled QB Cutler to Bears


NFL.com Wire Reports

The Denver Broncos announced Thursday that they have agreed to trade disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears.

NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports that the Broncos will receive first-round draft picks this year and in 2010, a third-round pick (84th overall) this year and quarterback Kyle Orton in exchange for Cutler and a 2009 fifth-round selection.

The Broncos were trading Cutler on his terms, and there was no shortage of teams lining up to take a crack at acquiring the 25-year-old Pro Bowl passer.

Cutler had asked for a trade last month after his relationship with new coach Josh McDaniels soured. Their relationship began to disintegrate when McDaniels broached a potential trade of Cutler for Matt Cassel earlier this offseason.

McDaniels and Cutler likely will see each other again on Aug. 30, when the Broncos host the Bears in a preseason game.

An air-supported roof over the Dallas Cowboys' practice field collapsed during a heavy thunderstorm Saturday afternoon, leaving 12 people injured, authorities said.

About 70 people, including more than two dozen of the team's rookies, were in the facility when it was blown down shortly before 3:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. ET), team officials said.

Two or three suffered serious injuries, but none were believed to be in life-threatening condition Saturday night, said Dr. Paul Pepe, Dallas County's emergency medical services chief.

CNN affiliate WFAA reported Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis, the son-in-law of former NFL head coach Dan Reeves, suffered a broken back. DeCamillis was seen on a stretcher wearing a neck brace.

A line of heavy thunderstorms was moving through the Dallas area at the time, he said, but no other damage to buildings was reported, said Mike Adams, a dispatcher for the Irving, Texas, fire department.

Arnold Payne, a photographer for WFAA, was shooting the Cowboys' practice session when rain began falling "tremendously hard."

"I noticed the walls started to waver ... and then I noticed that the lights that were hanging from the ceiling started to sway, and it wouldn't stop," Payne told CNN. Shortly after that, he said, "It was as if someone took a stick pin and hit a balloon."

Payne said Cowboys staff photographers were up in the metal framework beneath the canopy to film the practice session and "actually rode the building down with the storm." At least one was in surgery Saturday night, he said.

"There was nowhere for them to go, and it fell so fast -- it just collapsed as if it was being imploded," Payne said.

Video from CNN affiliate WFAA showed the roof caving in during a heavy storm, sending players, coaches and a handful of reporters and photographers scrambling to escape. Watch the roof collapse on players, coaches »

Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones told NBC that about 27 rookies from the NFL team and members of the team's coaching staff were inside the suburban Dallas facility at the time.

"They did not get good warning there, and the structure did collapse," Jones said, speaking from the Kentucky Derby in Louisville. "We're assessing who's injured at this particular time."

Goodell reviewing Burress incidents

By Chris Mortensen
ESPN.com

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday notified Plaxico Burress that his office is initiating a review of incidents involving Burress under the personal conduct policy, league spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed.

Burress, who shot himself in the thigh Nov. 29 in a Manhattan nightclub, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and faces up to 3½ years in prison.

He made a brief appearance in court Monday, where Judge Felicia Mennin adjourned the case until Sept. 23, enabling the former Giants receiver to continue negotiations with several NFL teams in hopes of returning to the field in 2009.

Goodell had been waiting for the legal process to be complete, but as it is delayed with no clear indication of when it will be concluded, the commissioner decided to take the initiative, league sources said.

The NFL's vice president of labor and law policy, Adolpho Birch, notified Burress of the commissioner's review on Friday.

The Giants signed Burress to a five-year, $35 million contract extension in September. The team later withheld $1 million after the shooting and the NFL Players Association filed a grievance on Burress' behalf. A special master ruled the Giants had to pay Burress because the money was a signing bonus he earned upon agreeing to the contract extension and could not be withheld for future conduct.

Burress has 505 career receptions for 7,845 yards and 55 touchdowns in nine seasons with the Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Supreme Court to hear antitrust case

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide whether the National Football League and its 32 teams can enter an exclusive licensing deal with a maker of team jerseys and other gear without violating federal antitrust law.

The court said it will hear an appeal from American Needle Inc., of Buffalo Grove, Ill., that challenges an agreement the NFL struck with Reebok International Ltd. American Needle had been one of many firms that manufactured NFL headwear until the league granted an exclusive contract to Reebok in 2001.

The NFL won the case in the federal appeals court in Chicago. But it also asked the Supreme Court to hear the case in a quest for a more sweeping decision that could put an end to what the league considers costly, frivolous antitrust lawsuits.

The case concerns whether the league is essentially a "single entity" that can act collectively or 32 distinct businesses that must be careful about running afoul of antitrust laws by working too closely together.

Other than Major League Baseball, which has an antitrust exemption dating to 1922, the other sports leagues have an intense interest in the case. The National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League both asked the court to rule in favor of the NFL.

The case will be argued late this year or early in 2010.

The case is American Needle v. National Football League, 08-661.

Vick's NFL future to be evaluated

Associated Press

SEATTLE -- Commissioner Roger Goodell is beginning to focus on evaluating Michael Vick's future in the NFL.

That doesn't mean a decision will come any time before the 2009 regular season begins in September.

Goodell said Thursday his decision on whether to reinstate the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback, convicted on federal charges of running a dogfighting ring, will come "in due time." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4287696)

Jurevicius sues Browns over staph

Associated Press

CLEVELAND -- Former Cleveland Browns receiver Joe Jurevicius sued the team and the Cleveland Clinic on Friday, saying the team misrepresented the cleanliness of its training facility and blaming doctors with negligence over a staph infection in his right knee that kept him from playing last year.

The lawsuit alleges that physicians Anthony Miniaci and Richard Figler failed to warn Jurevicius that therapy equipment was not always sanitized at the team's training facility in suburban Berea.

The filing was first reported by the The Plain Dealer on its Web site. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4290038)

Peterson would welcome Favre, trusts Childress with decision

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson would welcome Brett Favre to Minnesota with open arms if the quarterback decides to come out of retirement for the second straight year and sign with the Vikings.

Peterson said Friday that he grew up watching Favre and admires his passion for the game. But he said it's up to coach Brad Childress on whether to pursue Favre or stick with Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson as the Vikings quarterback.

Peterson said he thinks Childress will do whatever gives Minnesota the "best team possible to win games."

At least for a few days, Peterson was the featured quarterback. He spent time dropping back for passes and avoiding blitzers during his football camp for about 400 kids on his former college campus at Oklahoma.

Vick to work at Boys & Girls Clubs

ESPN.com news services

NORFOLK, Va. -- Suspended NFL star Michael Vick is leaving a job with a Virginia construction company to work with youngsters at Boys & Girls Clubs.

Steven Kast, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula, says Vick will be working with children on health and fitness activities at several clubs in the Hampton Roads area. Vick was a regular at the Boys & Girls Club in Newport News as a youngster.

"We were disappointed by some of his recent actions and decisions but believe he has learned from these experiences and is now conscious of his obligations and responsibilities as a prominent sports figure that impacts and influences our kids," Kast said in a written statement.

Vick needed a job to meet the conditions of his probation and had been working as a $10-an-hour laborer. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4297245)

Jags deal Northcutt for Alexander

Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded receiver Dennis Northcutt to the Detroit Lions for safety Gerald Alexander.

The deal was finalized Tuesday after both players passed physicals.

Northcutt gives the Lions a veteran receiver opposite rising star Calvin Johnson.

Alexander, a second-round pick in 2007, gives Jacksonville depth in the secondary. He started 16 games as a rookie, but missed most of last year following a neck injury.

Northcutt, who has 364 receptions for 4,584 yards and 17 touchdowns, has been projected to start this season. But Jacksonville's three rookie receivers were impressive enough during offseason drills that Northcutt became expendable.

Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and a woman were found shot to death Saturday afternoon inside a condominium in downtown Nashville, police said.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said authorities were still investigating the shootings and that no suspects were in custody.

"I don't have any answers for you now as to what's happened, who's responsible," Aaron said.

Aaron said the 36-year-old McNair died of a gunshot wound to the head. He said police tentatively identified the woman, but did not release her name.

"There are persons who were around the complex today, visitors, who have been taken to headquarters for questioning, just to see what they know, what they may have seen," he said.

Aaron said officers went to the scene after receiving a call about injured persons inside the condo.

"When police officers arrived in response to that call, they found two individuals who had been shot to death inside the residence," he said.

The condominium is one that McNair was known to frequent, but police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford said she didn't know if he was the owner.

McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL and led the Titans within a yard of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, which they lost 23-16 to the St. Louis Rams. He also played for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in April 2008.
We don't know the details, but it is a terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to the families involved," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.

"We are saddened and shocked to hear the news of Steve McNair's passing today," Titans owner Bud Adams said in a statement. "He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl."

About 50 people crowded just beyond police tape outside the complex in the upscale Rutledge Hill neighborhood, some wearing Titans hats. The condominium is located within walking distance of an area filled with restaurants and nightspots, a few blocks from the Cumberland River and within view of the Titans' stadium.

McNair began his career in 1995 with the Houston Oilers, who eventually became the Titans, and finished with 31,304 yards passing and 174 touchdowns. McNair played with pain for several years, and the injuries ultimately forced him to retire.

McNair's most noted drive was the final one of the 2000 Super Bowl. He drove the Titans 87 yards in the final minute, 48 seconds, only to come up a yard short of the tying touchdown. Kevin Dyson caught his 9-yard pass, but was tackled at the 1-yard line by the Rams' Mike Jones.

McNair accounted for all of Tennessee's yards in that drive, throwing for 48 yards and rushing for 14. The rest of the yardage came on penalties against the Rams. Before that, he brought the Titans back from a 16-0 deficit to tie the game.

"The people who didn't know Steve McNair before will know him now," Tennessee tight end Frank Wycheck said after the game. "Did you see that desire? Did you see that heart?"

During a five-game stretch at the end of the 2002 season, McNair was so bruised he couldn't practice. But he started all five games and won them, leading the Titans to an 11-5 finish and a berth in the AFC championship game for the second time in four seasons.

McNair played all 16 games in 2006, his first season in Baltimore, and guided the Ravens to a 13-3 record. But he injured his groin during the season opener last season and never regained the form that enabled him to earn a berth in four Pro Bowls.

"I am deeply saddened to learn of today's tragic news regarding the death of Steve McNair. He was a player who I admired a great deal," said New England Patriots senior football adviser Floyd Reese, who was GM of the Titans when McNair played there. "He was a tremendous leader and an absolute warrior. He felt like it was his responsibility to lead by working hard every day, no matter what.

"I don't think there was a player who played with him or against him that didn't look up to him and respect him," Reese said. "My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, his friends and the many teammates who loved and admired him."

Titans coach Jeff Fisher was out of the country, taking part in the first NFL-USO coaches tour to Iraq.

Ellis: Ware helped me out

ESPN.com news services

According to former Cowboys linebacker Greg Ellis, DeMarcus Ware played hide-and-seek with the Dallas coaching staff during games last season to help Ellis get more playing time.

Ellis, who was vocal about his displeasure with his diminished role with the Cowboys last season, said on ESPN 103.3's "Michael Irvin Show" Wednesday that former teammate Ware shared his frustration to the point that Ware would hide from coaches during games so Ellis could play.

"It's a disgrace when DeMarcus Ware comes off the field just so I can get in the game and when the coaches tell him to come on the field, he tries to hide so I can play," Ellis said on Irvin's show. "And you're telling me we're trying to win the Super Bowl?"

Ellis, who had played all of his 11 NFL seasons in Dallas, was released this offseason and subsequently signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Ware, who has one season remaining on his rookie contract, earned his third straight Pro Bowl nod in 2008 thanks to a 20-sack season.

During the interview Wednesday, Irvin asked Ellis to clarify his statement that Ware would take himself out of games.

"On his own. He would say, 'G, come on.' And I would tell him, 'No, DeMarcus, go ahead, man. You're coming up on your contract year. Don't mess that stuff up. Go ahead and do you, and we're just going to do what the coaches, or whoever the powers that be, what they want to do.' "

Ware was asked to react to Ellis' comments on Sirius Radio's "Opening Drive" show Thursday. He didn't dispute Ellis' claims but defended his effort for the Cowboys last season.

"You know, on the concept of hydration, I think I was probably going off the field maybe to get hydrated," he said -- and then laughed. "But I think that everybody at the end of the day got ample amount of time and I went back and looked at a lot of the things, and I, what, played in like 95 percent of the plays? And, you know, maybe sometimes guys rush better against certain guys, so I don't know. I don't know what the deal is, but at the end of the day, I did what I can do to help the team out last year."

Report: Trainer looks in on Favre again

ESPN.com news services

For the second time in four weeks, the trainer for the Minnesota Vikings traveled to Mississippi to assess the physical condition of quarterback Brett Favre.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Eric Sugarman was in Hattiesburg on Wednesday to check on Favre. The report did not indicate the condition of the surgically repaired biceps tendon in Favre's throwing arm.

Sugarman visited with Favre in June to discuss exercises Favre could do to improve shoulder strength following the arthroscopic surgery he had at the end of May.

In an interview with HBO in mid-June, Favre said he was considering a return to the NFL if his throwing arm will allow it and that the Vikings are the only team he has spoken to about a comeback.

"You have two quarterbacks [Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels] who don't know exactly what is going to happen. All of a sudden these two guys thought they were going to be competing. To be honest with you, I thought Tarvaris would be the starting guy this year. I've watched him off and on. The most important thing for him is the consistency. He shows that at times 'OK, I can do this.' I think he was moving in the right direction, making progress. Now you have this saga, and everybody is sitting back wondering what is going to happen."

Brinkley stable after shooting

ESPN.com news services

CHELTENHAM, Pa. -- San Diego Chargers rookie running back Curtis Brinkley was hospitalized in stable condition Friday after being shot at a suburban Philadelphia intersection, authorities said.

Brinkley, 23, was shot multiple times early Friday morning as his car was stopped at an intersection in Cheltenham, police said. Investigators are looking for a gunman who fled the scene in a car. They did not have a motive.

Brinkley was able to drive himself a short distance, then was taken to a hospital by a police officer who responded to the shooting, according to Cheltenham Township police.

He was listed in stable condition at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, hospital spokesman Rodney Yancey said.

In a statement, the Chargers wished Brinkley a speedy recovery but said they would have no further comment while the shooting was under investigation.

It is the third time in six years a Chargers player has been shot. In September 2006, linebacker Steve Foley was shot three times by an off-duty police officer in Coronado, Calif., who suspected him of driving drunk. The injury ended his career.

In July 2003, rookie safety Terrence Kiel was shot during an attempted carjacking in Houston. Four years later, he pleaded guilty to felony and misdemeanor drug charges for shipping prescription cough syrup to Texas. He was released by the team after his plea and died in a car crash in July 2008.

Brinkley signed with the Chargers as a rookie free agent following this year's draft. As a senior at Syracuse last season, he rushed for 1,164 yards and seven touchdowns.

A native of Philadelphia, Brinkley was a prolific running back at West Catholic High School. He set city high school records with 7,429 career rushing yards and 85 touchdowns.

In a statement, Syracuse coach Doug Marrone extended the program's thoughts and prayers to Brinkley and his family, wishing him a speedy recovery.

Cowboys' facility designer: Building safe

Associated Press

DALLAS -- The company that built the Dallas Cowboys' indoor practice facility that collapsed this spring is telling its customers that the ill-fated fabric structure got a new roof last year because of team concerns about "aesthetics," not structural problems.

Nathan Stobbe of Summit Structures LLC included the explanation in a letter sent to customers of the Allentown, Pa.-based company. The letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press, seeks to reassure customers that their buildings are safe.

"Please be assured that your buildings have been designed, engineered and manufactured to meet or exceed all local applicable building codes," Stobbe wrote.

The Cowboys' 80,000-square-foot facility collapsed May 2, the fifth Summit building known to have fallen in the last seven years. A member of the team's scouting department was paralyzed from the waist down and 11 other people were injured less severely. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4319980)

The family of former Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Korey Stringer won an important legal victory Monday against the manufacturer of the helmets and shoulder pads he wore when he died nearly eight years ago from complications of heatstroke.

A federal judge in Ohio concluded that manufacturer Riddell Inc. had a duty to warn Stringer that its helmets and shoulder pads could contribute to heat stroke when used in hot conditions.

As a result, U.S. District Court judge John D. Holschuh ordered a Nov. 2 jury trial to determine whether Riddell's failure to warn Stringer comprises legal culpability for his death. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4324917)

Smith trying to avoid lockout

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- As NFL owners and players resume talks on a new collective bargaining agreement, the new union chief and 20 current and retired players plan to meet with members of Congress Wednesday in hopes of building political support to head off a lockout.

In an interview with The Associated Press Tuesday, the union head, DeMaurice Smith, said the group will remind lawmakers about the "gifts" Congress bestows on the league, such as an antitrust exemption for broadcasting contracts.

It may be hard to conjure up much sympathy for players making seven-figure salaries. But Smith noted that thousands of people work as stadium workers. "And I'm not sure in an economic downturn whether a business that generated $8 billion in revenue last year should be contemplating" throwing those people out of work during a lockout, he said -- adding that lawmakers should think about the consequences to their home cities.

The union and league held a negotiating session in Washington Tuesday. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4327298)

Other sports leagues support NFL

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- U.S. Olympic officials, Major League Baseball and other professional sports organizations are getting into the NFL's fight with two Minnesota Vikings linemen who face four-game suspensions for violating the league's anti-doping policy.

MLB, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League asked Monday for permission to file paperwork in federal court in support of the NFL, which wants to suspend the players at the beginning of the upcoming season. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency filed a similar motion on its own.

Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, who are not related, have never been accused of taking steroids. The two defensive linemen tested positive last summer for a banned diuretic, bumetanide, that can mask the presence of steroids. They took the weight-loss supplement StarCaps, which contained the diuretic but wasn't listed on the label. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4327101)

Suggs gets $38M guaranteed

BALTIMORE -- Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs signed a six-year, $63 million contract Wednesday, making him the highest-paid linebacker in NFL history.

The contract, which assures him $38 million in guaranteed money, provides a long-term solution to Suggs' unsettled status as the team's franchise player.

"I'm looking forward to showing them that they didn't make a mistake and they got the right guy," said Suggs, the Ravens' franchise player for the past two seasons. The 6-foot-3, 260-pounder had until 4 p.m. ET Wednesday to work out a deal or face being stuck with the franchise tag for another year.

"I am glad it is over. Now we can get back to football," Suggs said. "Getting this done took compromises on both ends. I wanted to stay in purple and black, the Ravens wanted to keep me in purple and black, and they stepped up and showed me that." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4328590)

Ravens take wait-and-see approach

By James Walker
ESPN.com

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a conference call Wednesday that he plans to meet with top receiver Derrick Mason soon.

The subject undoubtedly will revolve around Mason's sudden retirement earlier this week, and whether there's a chance he will change his mind before the start of the 2009 season.

The Ravens were caught off guard Monday when Mason, who led the team in receptions and yards in 2008, told jocklife.com that he was calling it quits after 12 seasons. Mason had been rehabbing his shoulder this offseason and was in Baltimore as recently as Monday.

Mason cited the passing of longtime friend and former teammate Steve McNair as a major reason he is leaving the game and recently told ESPN that he is "99 percent" sure of his decision. Baltimore is still taking a wait-and-see approach until Mason meets with team officials and files the official paperwork.

"We have an appointment to talk real soon, either by phone or when I get back next week," Harbaugh said. "So it will be interesting to see where he is at with everything. I know he's going through a lot in the last couple weeks with Steve's situation and those kinds of things. But I'm looking forward to talking to him."

The Ravens have been in the process of examining what's available in the free-agent market at receiver. Veterans such as Marvin Harrison, Matt Jones and Amani Toomer are some of the established names still looking for work.

Right now the Ravens are thin at the position, as Mark Clayton is one of the few receivers with starting experience on the roster. Baltimore is hoping to get the issue resolved before the team opens training camp on July 28.

"Whatever he does, I stand behind him 100 percent," said Ravens defensive end/linebacker Terrell Suggs, who signed a six-year, $63 million extension Wednesday. "I would love to have him for another year, but only Derrick Mason knows what's good for him."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The widow of slain former NFL quarterback Steve McNair says in court documents that her husband left no will and a judge in Nashville has ruled that she will oversee his estate.

Davidson County Probate Judge Randy Kennedy granted Mechelle McNair's request to administer the estate and gave her 60 days to file an inventory of her late husband's assets. She says in court documents that she did not know her late husband's worth, but documents contend it is "of sufficient size to be administered."

Police say McNair was shot to death on July 4 by a girlfriend who later turned the gun on herself. Nashville police have ruled it a murder-suicide.

Mechelle McNair listed herself and her two sons, Tyler and Trenton McNair, as the heirs to the estate. McNair also has two other sons from a previous relationship.

Prosecutors expect to refile the case within three months.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Federal prosecutors announced gun charges Friday against a convicted murderer who admitted he sold the pistol that was used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair.

Adrian J. Gilliam Jr., 33, of LaVergne, Tenn., was arrested by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

He is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Conviction could bring a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, federal prosecutors said.

Gilliam is in custody in the federal courthouse in Nashville and will appear in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Clifton Knowles at 4 p.m. ET. The U.S. Attorney's office will ask that he be held without bond, a source told ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky.

A criminal complaint says that Gilliam -- who was convicted in 1993 in Florida for second-degree murder and attempted armed robbery -- told police he sold the gun to the woman who later shot McNair. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4336409)

Source: Browns QB Anderson healthy

By James Walker
ESPN.com

Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson has recovered from a calf injury and will be ready for the start of training camp, a source told ESPN.com Friday.

Anderson, who is competing with Brady Quinn for Cleveland's starting quarterback job, missed the final two days of mandatory minicamp in June after injuring his right calf.

Anderson finished minicamp with a limp and a heavy wrap on his leg, and neither Anderson nor Browns coach Eric Mangini would discuss the severity of the ailment.

But a source told ESPN.com on Friday that, after a month of rest and rehab, Anderson's health is no longer an issue.

Cleveland's full team will practice for the first time in training camp Aug. 1.

Anderson made the Pro Bowl in 2007 after throwing for 3,787 yards, 29 touchdowns and leading the Browns to a 10-6 mark. But he couldn't duplicate those efforts last season, which opened the door for Quinn, a former first-round pick from Notre Dame.

Both quarterbacks have a clean slate this summer under a new regime. The Browns gave Quinn the slight edge when the pair began practices this offseason, but the team likely will not make a firm decision until late in the preseason.

Plenty of work ahead for former NFL QB

Associated Press

Michael Vick's federal dogfighting sentence is scheduled to end Monday and that is also when he will go back on trial -- facing a whole new series of judgments.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, teams, fans and sponsors are among those who will weigh in on Vick's future.

First and foremost, Goodell must decide whether Vick's suspension will end and, if so, when -- allowing the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback a chance to play in the league again. Goodell is expected to act fairly quickly, so Vick and teams know his status for the coming season. Training camps for veterans start opening next weekend.

There has been communication between Vick's camp and the league about the process, although neither side is making substantive comments publicly about where things stand.

"As we said in 2007, when he was indefinitely suspended, Michael Vick's status will be reviewed following the conclusion of the legal proceedings," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4338388)

In an eight-episode reality series set to premiere Monday on the VH-1 cable network, Owens says he'll present a counter argument to critics who portray him as a one-dimensional showboat perhaps known as much for self-indulgent sideline eruptions and quarterback criticisms as for being one of the most prolific receivers of his generation.

Childress: Favre's throwing motion OK

ESPN.com news services

MINNETONKA, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says he has watched video of quarterback Brett Favre throwing a football and his motion "looked fine" to him.

Childress spoke to reporters on Sunday at a charity event for former Vikings center Matt Birk. He told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis that he has not spoken to Favre in a couple of weeks.

The coach has watched video of Favre working out in Mississippi and says, "I liked his throwing motion, the little bit that I saw on tape."

Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice, however, is skeptical about Favre's latest potential comeback. In an interview with the Star Tribune, Rice said the move could "backfire" on the Vikings. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4340316)

Goodell won't say when he'll decide

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn't revealing when he'll decide whether to reinstate Michael Vick now that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback has been released from federal custody.

"The process is ongoing, and I hope to make a decision sometime in the near future," Goodell said Tuesday, a day after Vick's home confinement ended.

He wouldn't define what "near future" means.

Vick served 23 months on a dogfighting conviction.

NFL training camps open for veterans next week. Goodell would not say when he'll meet with Vick.

"We're not going to give any details right now," he said after a news conference announcing singer Marc Anthony's involvement with the NFL.

The commissioner has said he wants to see remorse and evidence of change from the player he suspended indefinitely.

Even if Goodell reinstates Vick, the 29-year-old quarterback would still have to find a team willing to sign him.

Goodell, Vick could meet this week

By Chris Mortensen and Sal Paolantonio
ESPN.com

While NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would not define Tuesday what "near future" meant in terms of a decision on suspended quarterback Michael Vick, sources say that a meeting with Vick could take place by Thursday or Friday, likely resulting in a conditional reinstatement next week.

Under a scenario involving conditional reinstatement, Goodell would reserve the right to extend or further define Vick's indefinite suspension but allow him to attend training camp if he is signed with an NFL team, sources said. A conclusive reinstatement, or additional suspension, for the 2009 season would be expected before Sept. 1, the first mandatory date for roster cuts.

The time and location of Goodell's meeting with Vick was still being finalized, sources said.

A league spokesman said the NFL will remain mum on specifics, other than what Goodell briefly addressed Tuesday when he told reporters he expected a decision in the "near future."

Another league source labeled a conditional reinstatement "smart speculation" but said Goodell could choose another option, especially if the commissioner does not feel his meeting with Vick is positively productive.

Goodell's decision could be made by Tuesday and he probably will not delay it beyond next week, barring new information being made available to him, a source said.

Vick's agent, Joel Segal, said, "Absolutely no comment."

NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith met with Vick on Tuesday night in the Washington, D.C., area, NFLPA assistant executive director George Attalah confirmed to ESPN. He said what was discussed "will remain confidential for now."

Sources: Favre anguished over choice

By Ed Werder
ESPN.com

With Minnesota Vikings players scheduled to report to training camp in less than a week, Brett Favre remains anguished about whether he should come out of retirement and join the team. That decision, according to sources, has become more difficult in recent days because of the efforts of Vikings players including Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and Steve Hutchinson, all of whom have now begun calling and texting Favre in an attempt to convince him to become Minnesota's starting quarterback.

"If it weren't for the involvement of the Vikings players directly telling Brett they want him on their team, I think he might have already decided against playing again,'' a source said.

A source said that Favre is beginning to feel a sense of obligation, not only to Vikings players but to a coaching staff that has been recruiting him since the moment the New York Jets released him in April. According to sources, Favre has been communicating regularly with Vikings head coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who was Favre's offensive coordinator in Green Bay for three seasons.

Draft to expand to three days

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

The audience for the NFL draft has been growing, and the league has responded by expanding the event from two to three days.

Commissioner Roger Goodell notified teams Thursday that the draft will be spread over three days in 2010, running Thursday, April 22, through Saturday, April 24.

In addition, the first round will start in prime time at 7:30 p.m. ET.

"We continue to look for ways to make the draft more accessible to more fans," Goodell said in a statement. "Moving the first round to prime time on Thursday night will make the first round of the draft available to fans on what is typically the most-watched night of television."

ESPN and the NFL Network will televise the entire show.

The second and third rounds will start at 6:30 p.m. ET on April 23.

Rounds 4 through 7 will be on April 24, starting at 10 a.m. ET.

More than 39 million watched the draft during the 2009 two-day broadcast.

From 1988 to 1994, the NFL held its draft on Sunday-Monday two-day blocks. From 1995 to 2009, the league made it a Saturday-Sunday event.

Sources: Vick can sign, may sit 4 games

ESPN.com news services

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell may be close to reaching a decision on Michael Vick, NFL sources told ESPN.

League sources told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio and Chris Mortensen Thursday that sometime next week Goodell is expected to announce a conditional reinstatement of Vick, which would allow Vick to go to training camp if he signed with a team but that could also include a four-game suspension.

"Can we suspend him in basically double jeopardy?" asked the league source. "That's the question."

Goodell had already given Vick an indefinite suspension that ran concurrent with the 23-month federal prison sentence and home confinement stemming from Vick's role in an illegal dogfighting ring.

According to a source close to Vick, the former Falcons quarterback is hoping to receive no additional punishment. A four-game suspension would likely inhibit his ability to catch on with an NFL team. No teams have expressed interest in bringing Vick in for a tryout as of yet.

McDermott takes over for Johnson

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Sean McDermott has replaced Jim Johnson as the Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator, two days before the team opens training camp.

The 68-year-old Johnson took an indefinite leave of absence in May to continue treatment for a cancerous tumor on his spine. It's uncertain whether he'll return to the team in any capacity.

"First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with Jim Johnson and his family as they battle through this difficult time in his cancer treatments," Eagles coach Andy Reid said Friday. "I have been in constant communication with Jim and his wife throughout this offseason and they are thankful for all the support they have received from the Eagles organization, the fans and the entire NFL community."

McDermott, 35, will be introduced at a news conference Saturday afternoon. He ran the defense in Johnson's absence after serving as secondary coach last year.

McDermott originally joined the Eagles in 1998 as a scouting administrative coordinator, and has served in various roles as an assistant on the defensive staff.

"We have full confidence he can continue to lead this defense in his new role," Reid said. "He showed great command and presence in the offseason camps and has had an opportunity to learn from the best in the business. He's very smart, works very hard, and has a good rapport with the players and the assistant coaches. He's ready for this and I'm confident he'll do a great job."

McDermott has big shoes to fill. Johnson is widely regarded as one of the top defensive masterminds in the game. He's known for his aggressive, attacking style and his defenses have played a major role in the team's success over the last decade.

Last year, the Eagles finished third in total defense and fourth in points allowed. They advanced to the NFC title game for the fifth time in 10 seasons.

Johnson spent two seasons in the NFL as a player with the Buffalo Bills in 1963 and 1964. He began his coaching career at Missouri Southern in 1967, and was the secondary coach at Notre Dame when the Fighting Irish won the national championship in 1977.

Johnson spent the last 23 seasons coaching in the NFL, including 10 years as Philadelphia's defensive coordinator.

The Pittsburgh Steelers reached an agreement in principle Saturday on a five-year deal with first-round choice Evander "Ziggy" Hood, the 32nd pick in the NFL draft, according to a source.

 Terms of the deal were not available, but Hood, a defensive end out of Missouri, became the fourth first-rounder to come to a contract agreement.

The Browns signed center Alex Mack to a five-year deal Friday. Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford (Detroit) and Mark Sanchez (New York Jets) are also under contract.

The Steelers have signed all nine of their draft choices.

Hood, 6-foot-4, 300-pounds, will sign the contract later in the week. Hood could also be used in the future at nose tackle.

PHILADELPHIA -- New Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott has learned too much from Jim Johnson -- in life and football -- to discuss in one news conference.

"What haven't I learned from Jim?" McDermott said Saturday upon being introduced as Johnson's replacement. "I don't think it would be fair to Jim, in this setting, to try and limit in one statement, one press conference, the effect that Jim has had on my life."

After spending the last eight seasons as a defensive assistant under Johnson, McDermott on Friday was named to succeed his mentor. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4356160)

Broncos reach deal with CB Smith

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

The Denver Broncos reached a four-year agreement with cornerback Alphonso Smith Sunday, his agent Drew Rosenhaus announced Sunday.

Terms of the four-year deal weren't available. Smith, the 37th pick in the draft, became the highest second-round pick to reach an agreement. The Broncos traded their No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft to the Seattle Seahawks to acquire Smith's rights.

This agreement brings the numbers of second-round deals to 11. Earlier Sunday, the Browns reached a four-year deal with defensive end David Veikune, the 52nd pick in the draft.

Smith, 23, could be the team's third cornerback this season and eventually might challenge for a starting job.

The Broncos' rookies are scheduled to report to training camp on Monday.

Unsigned Maclin a no-show at camp

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Philadelphia Eagles top draft pick Jeremy Maclin remains unsigned and was a no-show on the first day of training camp.

Maclin was selected with the 19th overall pick in the draft. The Eagles traded up two spots to take the receiver out of Missouri.

The deadline for rookies and selected veterans to report to camp at Lehigh University was 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Eagles coach Andy Reid says the team is close with Maclin in a "couple of areas" and needs to get closer in others.

Reid also said running back Brian Westbrook isn't expected to return to the team until next month after undergoing ankle surgery June 5.

Defensive end Victor Abiamiri isn't expected back until mid-August because of an injured pectoral muscle.

Source: Marshall arrives at camp

By Bill Williamson
ESPN.com

Disgruntled Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall lived up to his word Monday by arriving for the start of the Denver Broncos training camp, a team source said.

Marshall's arrival was first reported by Fox31 in Denver.

Marshall, who had previously asked the Broncos for a trade, said earlier this month at the ESPYs that he would attend training camp because he was under contract. Monday was the reporting date in Denver for rookies and select veterans, including those coming off injuries. Marshall had hip surgery in March.

Denver's full squad starts camp Friday.

While his arrival may not necessarily mean he no longer wants to be traded, it is a sign that Marshall, who can be a free agent next year, plans to play in Denver despite his request. He situation will likely be addressed by the team, and perhaps him, after Monday afternoon's practice.

Marshall, who is entering his fourth NFL season, has developed into one of the better receivers in the league. He has had back-to-back 100-catch seasons and made his first Pro Bowl in 2008. Marshall's career has been hampered by several off-field issues and injuries. He was suspended by the league for one game last season for violating its personal-conduct policy.

Marshall asked to be traded because he wanted a raise and because he had medical trust issues with the team.

Lawyer: Decision to testify imminent

ESPN.com news services

The attorney for Plaxico Burress said Monday night that he and the former New York Giants receiver, who shot himself in the thigh at a nightclub last year, have been discussing whether Burress will testify before the grand jury.

Benjamin Brafman told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that he expects the two to reach a decision by Tuesday.

"If he testifies, it will be Wednesday morning," Brafman said.

Earlier Monday, Manhattan's district attorney said he wants Burress to serve time in prison, the New York Post reported.

Robert Morgenthau told the newspaper that Burress, who shot himself with an unlicensed gun early on the morning of Nov. 29, was willing to agree to spend a year in jail, but prosecutors insisted on two, the Post reported.

"We've always taken the position that he's going to have to go to jail, whether by trial or by plea," Morgenthau told the Post.

Burress is charged with criminal possession of a weapon and faces up to 3½ years in prison. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $100,000 bail. The Giants released Burress in April.

Brafman said earlier Monday that he was "disappointed and surprised" that Morgenthau spoke publicly while a grand jury decision on indicting Burress is pending.

"My concern is that the comments by the district attorney's office may have irreparably prejudiced those proceedings," Brafman said Monday. "I am now considering the legal options available to respond."

Brafman had previously said he no longer thought the matter would be resolved through a plea agreement and that prosecutors would take the case to a grand jury. He also said Burress would plead not guilty if the case went to trial.

"The comments by DA Morgenthau are completely out of character and show a lapse in judgment," Brafman said.

Burress, who caught the winning touchdown in the final minute for the Giants in the 2008 Super Bowl, also could face disciplinary action by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell under the league's personal conduct policy.

Burress has yet to sign with another team and Goodell's office announced in June that the league already had started its examination of the incident.

Favre opts to remain retired

By Ed Werder
ESPN.com

After nearly three months of what he described as intense and often emotional soul-searching, Brett Favre decided to remain retired from the NFL rather than become the Minnesota Vikings' starting quarterback.

Favre told ESPN's Ed Werder that the decision not to play for the Vikings was incredibly difficult, and in the process he indicated that he is unlikely to ever considering playing again in the NFL.

"It was the hardest decision I've ever made," Favre said. "I didn't feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable. I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings -- but, most importantly, the fans."

Favre, who had shoulder surgery in May, experienced soreness in both ankles and his left knee during his private workouts in Mississippi. The pain would not subside and worsened as he continued to prepare for a potential 19th NFL season, which Favre considered proof that his health was too precarious to be trusted for a 16-game season.

Former NFL coach Steve Mariucci told NFL Network, however, that Favre said to him on Tuesday that he does plan to continue to work out and throw. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4362093)

Vikings QBs ready to compete

ESPN.com news services

Now that Brett Favre is out of the picture, the focus in Minnesota Vikings camp turns to the quarterbacks the team had hoped Favre would supplant as the starter. But Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson are saying they understood the situation all along -- and are ready to compete for the starting job.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Rosenfels recounted that in one of the Vikings' last organized team activity sessions, coach Brad Childress told his quarterbacks they should prepare as if Favre would not be joining the team.

"He said: 'I'm not sure what's going to happen. But prepare as if he's not coming,'" Rosenfels said, according to the report. "I would have done that, either way."

Tuesday, Favre, who had been courted by Vikings coaches and players alike, informed the team that after months of soul-searching, he had decided to stay retired.

If Favre had come to Minnesota, "It would have been a tough pill to swallow," Rosenfels said, according to the report. "But I understood what was going on."

Rosenfels, whom the Vikings acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans before the Favre-to-Minnesota frenzy began, said his coaches and teammates don't owe him any explanations.

"I don't think it's necessary because I understand the situation," Rosenfels said, according to the report. "I've been around the league long enough. ... I feel no animosity toward players or coaches."

Jackson began last season as the Vikings' starter, was benched for Gus Frerotte and then returned to lead the Vikings to the NFC North title and the first round of the playoffs.

Jackson wasn't available for comment Tuesday, the Pioneer Press reported. But his agent, Joel Segal, told reporters that Jackson is ready to compete for the starting job and has no issues with the team's courting of Favre.

"Tarvaris is very even-tempered," the agent said. "He's got a very calm demeanor. No matter what he's always ready to compete."

Rosenfels said the constant speculation about Favre was a source of frustration, but did not affect his offseason preparation, according to the Pioneer Press. He said he would let his play in practices and games do the talking for him.

"Players will see how I react to this," he said, according to the report. "But we're back to where we were. I'm preparing to battle with Tarvaris. The whole story was a non-issue."

Pierce arrived Thursday at a lower Manhattan courthouse, a day after the grand jury heard testimony from Burress, a former Giants wide receiver.

Burress has pleaded not guilty to illegal possession of a weapon. He shot himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub in November.

Burress was with Pierce, who still could be charged. Giants President John Mara has defended Pierce's actions, which included taking Burress to a hospital under an assumed name.

All the team's draft picks are under contract heading into the first full-squad workout under new coach Steve Spagnuolo on Friday.

Smith began his career at Baylor as a tight end and started 31 games, 24 at left tackle and seven at right tackle, after growing out of that position. In 1,147 plays at left tackle his last two seasons, the Rams said Smith allowed only 4½ sacks.

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Score Round 1 to the rookie.

Mark Sanchez received the slight edge from coach Rex Ryan on Friday in the first practice of what could be a summer-long competition with Kellen Clemens to be the New York Jets' starting quarterback.

"It probably wasn't the best day in throwing completions, but I thought Sanchez had a really good day," Ryan said after the morning practice. "When you look at it, he threw a couple of balls that could've been picked, but other than that ... I thought he threw the comeback and deep out exceptionally well today."

Added Sanchez: "It was a great day. I took care of the ball well. I think I got off to a good start."

Still, Sanchez, the fifth overall pick out of Southern California, and Clemens, a veteran heading into his fourth season in Brian Schottenheimer's offense, had their share of struggles in a steady rain at SUNY Cortland. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/trainingcamp09/news/story?id=4370301)

Lemon expected to join Patriots

By John Clayton
ESPN.com

The New England Patriots, in the market for a backup quarterback, have worked out NFL veteran Cleo Lemon and are expected to sign him.

Lemon was the quarterback who had a mid-afternoon workout Friday. There had been reports the Patriots worked out Michael Vick, but Lemon was the quarterback who was on the field throwing with front office people watching. Vick was in Virginia at a bankruptcy court hearing.

The Patriots were in contract talks with Lemon on Saturday afternoon.

A Lemon signing could mean the Patriots won't bring in Vick. Coach Bill Belichick didn't rule out interest in Vick, but he also wouldn't say they were interested on Friday.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft had this to say regarding signing Vick on Sirius Radio Saturday: "For us that's an academic problem because we've got the No. 1 player at that position [quarterback] in the world as far as I'm concerned. Why would ever want to do anything that would take him off the field for one play?"

Lemon is a 29-year-old veteran who has played for the Ravens, Chargers, Dolphins and Jaguars.

He was waived by the Raiders on Thursday.

Gutierrez joined the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Idaho State in 2007. He played in five games as a rookie, completing one pass for 15 yards. He began last season on the practice squad before being signed to the 53-man roster on Sept. 13 following a season-ending knee injury to Tom Brady.

Reeves, Myers sidelined by injuries

Associated Press

HOUSTON -- Houston Texans starting cornerback Jacques Reeves and starting center Chris Myers were injured in practice on Tuesday morning.

Reeves fractured his left leg in a collision with receiver Andre Davis when both were going for a pass in the end zone. Reeves, who signed as a free agent in 2008, is expected to be out 6 to 8 weeks.

Myers sustained a high ankle sprain and will be out indefinitely. Both players attended practice wearing walking boots in the afternoon.

Myers, who started all 16 games last season after being traded by Denver, was injured early in a practice coach Gary Kubiak called "sloppy." He was taken off the field on a cart.

"We're checking the severity of that," Kubiak said of Myers' injury. "But obviously he's going to miss some time."

Kubiak was unhappy with all aspects of the practice.

"It [Myers' injury] happened on a sloppy play," Kubiak said. "We were sloppy as a team. I didn't like much of anything I saw this morning."

Source: Eli, Giants agree on extension

ESPN.com news services

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Eli Manning has agreed to a new six-year, $97 million contract extension with the New York Giants that will make him among the highest-paid players in the NFL with an average salary of roughly $15.3 million, a source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.

A person close to the talks who asked not to be identified says Manning is guaranteed $35 million under the deal that will keep him with the Giants through the 2015 season, The Associated Press reported. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not signed and had not been announced.

There is a chance the deal could be signed Wednesday, but both sides wanted to review the contract, the person said. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4378407)

Teams institute messaging restrictions

Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. -- The only tweets during the Miami Dolphins scrimmage Saturday will come from the officials' whistles.

The Dolphins are at the forefront of an NFL clampdown on Twitter and other social media, with new restrictions imposed on players, reporters and even spectators.

Miami's secretive Bill Parcells regime prohibits fans and media at training-camp practices from tweeting, blogging or texting. At least six other teams have also imposed such restrictions on reporters, even though the workouts are open to the public.

Twitter intolerance is no surprise in a league where paranoia is part of the playbook. Like many Americans, coaches are anxious and a little confused about the rapid pace of change in communication.

"I don't really have a Twitter policy," Denver coach Josh McDaniels said. "I don't know what it means; I don't know what it is. I don't know MyFace, Spacebook, Facebook stuff. I don't know what that is either." (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4379573)

Nothing says "don't cut me" like a bouquet of roses.
Which is why Bears wideout Devin Aromashodu's idea is sort of brilliant. Rather than leave his NFL chances to fate, he went ahead and purchased all the Bears coaches flowers:

"I sent flowers to all the coaches, to keep me in mind," he said Tuesday.

The Bears are, like so many NFL teams, very near the process of player elimination. Cuts are happening. Professions will be decided. Performances will be either accepted or denied. A whole bunch of players will be returning to whatever it is sub-NFL players do when there's no Arena Football League anymore.

I hope he's found innocent, that she just attention whored or something. Which she probably didn't. He prolly did it. Coz that's what he seems like; a big dumb ass that can't fuck a girl the way she's supposed to be fucked.

One thing to say to Merriman: You fucking idiot... (http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/7484/facepalmw.gif)

TOZ: Drafting TE's is actually a good plan in fantasy. The 10 extra points you get / game with a good TE is worth it, as is an active kicker. With the small amounts of team we have in the league you'll get good (meaning scoring points) WR's, QB's and RB's regardless if you pick them 3rd or 4th or whatever. What I did was a wild shot. Simply filling up the gaping holes i left open last season.

Yeah you heard me bitches. If your asses aint filled with my giant loads from last year, I will make sure i fill them up properly this year. Watch me win again.

Bears lose injured Urlacher for season

ESPN.com news services

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Finally healthy after two years, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher launched his regular season by making a run at Aaron Rodgers, lowering his shoulder and plowing over the Packers quarterback in the first quarter.

His 10th season was off to a good start. And then, it was over.

Chicago's star linebacker underwent surgery Monday to repair a dislocated right wrist, was put on injured reserve and will not be back this season, a major blow for a team with high expectations.

There was no immediate word from Urlacher other than a text message to the Chicago Tribune that said simply: "season is over." But coach Lovie Smith said Urlacher clearly was disappointed. (http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/news/story?id=4472175)

NFL probing Mangini's actions

Associated Press

CLEVELAND -- Browns coach Eric Mangini can't seem to escape from New York.

The NFL is investigating Mangini's role in the Jets' failure to list quarterback Brett Favre's arm problem on injury reports last season. Mangini coached the Jets during Favre's one season in New York before he was fired after the team collapsed down the stretch.

Last week, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum admitted the club should have listed Favre, who had a torn biceps tendon, as "probable" on the injury report for the last four or five games. Favre said the Jets knew of the injury, which required offseason surgery.

Spokesman Greg Aiello said Mangini's actions will be examined as part of the league's inquiry.

"Since he was head coach of the Jets at the time, we are reviewing his role in the situation as part of the overall review," Aiello said in an e-mail response to The Associated Press.

On Monday, commissioner Roger Goodell said he expects to rule on the matter this week. The Jets and Mangini could be subject to a fine.

Mangini said he has always abided by the league's guidelines for injury reports.

"That was true there [New York]. It's true here," Mangini said. "It'll be true every week of the season and that's how we approach it."

Goodell said the Favre case is an opportunity to stress that all teams must abide by the injury report rules.

"We establish policies. They're to be followed. And all 32 clubs are going to be held accountable for that and, unfortunately, when someone violates it, the other 31 know that," he said.

McNabb out of practice; Kolb preparing

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Donovan McNabb was a causal bystander at Philadelphia Eagles practice. Wearing black sweatpants, an Eagles cap and his red No. 5 jersey, McNabb looked more like a fan on a football Sunday than their starting quarterback.

Unlike those Philly die-hards, McNabb hopes to be playing instead of watching against the New Orleans Saints.

McNabb, who has a cracked rib, could not practice Wednesday and likely won't all week. So third-year reserve Kevin Kolb took snaps with the first-team offense in preparation for possibly the first start of his NFL career.

Coach Andy Reid made it clear on Wednesday: Kolb is the starter if McNabb can't play. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4477956)

Coach Wade Phillips said Barber had an MRI on Monday, a day after he was hurt on a 35-yard run in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 33-31 loss to the Giants.

"We don't know exactly where he is," Phillips said. "Other than that, I think we came out fairly well injury-wise."

Barber gingerly walked off the field after his final run in the home opener. The hard-running Barber appeared to stumble on his own just before getting tackled at the 7, setting up Felix Jones' touchdown run the next play.

Barber had 18 carries for 124 yards with a 2-yard touchdown, the first scored in the new Cowboys Stadium. Jones finished with 96 yards rushing and Dallas had 251, its most since 1993.

The Cowboys host Carolina next Monday.

Westbrook also might sit for Eagles

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Donovan McNabb could have a sideline view for Michael Vick's debut.

McNabb is doubtful to play Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles host Kansas City because of a broken rib. Kevin Kolb will make his second straight start if McNabb can't go. No matter who's under cente

"We put some things in for him," coach Andy Reid said Friday. "He will be up and we'll go from there."

Vick is expected to run Philadelphia's version of the wildcat offense. He might take a few snaps at quarterback and line up as a receiver or running back. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4503638)

As tight as an asian on prom night

EDIT: Larry Johnson released

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)—Larry Johnson’s(notes) record-breaking career as a Kansas City running back is over.

The Chiefs confirmed Monday that they had run out of patience with his off-the-field problems and released Johnson the day he was due to come back from his second suspension in a year.

Johnson, who turns 30 on Nov. 19, was just 75 yards away from breaking Priest Holmes’(notes) team rushing record.

The decision by the Chiefs (1-7) was not a surprise.

“A part of him is excited and a part of him is very regretful,” Johnson’s agent, Peter Schaffer, told The Associated Press. “There’s a lot of feelings going on right now. It’s analogous to breaking up with a girlfriend. Maybe you saw it coming, but it still hurts when it happens.”

A No. 1 draft choice out of Penn State in 2003, Johnson was one of the best running backs in the NFL in 2005 and 2006, rushing for more than 1,700 yards in each of those Pro Bowl seasons.

But often angry and sullen, he was dogged by controversy and frequently at odds with coaches and fans. On Oct. 25, in what turned out to be his final episode with the Chiefs, he posted on his Twitter account several insults to fans, questioned coach Todd Haley’s credentials and used a gay slur.

He repeated the slur the next day to reporters and was suspended for two weeks. At Schaffer’s urging, the Chiefs cut the financial penalty in half, saving him about $315,000.

Johnson was the subject of an online petition last week calling on the Chiefs not to let him break the team rushing record. He was never a fan favorite and his apology for the online comments came almost exactly one year after issuing a similar apology for alleged incidents involving women in Kansas City night clubs.

In 2008, then-coach Herm Edwards benched him for three straight games for violating team rules. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him a fourth game for violating the league’s player conduct policy.

Johnson was later sentenced to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace. One woman accused him of throwing a drink on her and another said he had pushed her head at a Kansas City night spot.

A judge suspended the sentence and said he would remove the guilty plea from the public record if Johnson has no further legal problems during probation.

On the field, Johnson has not run with the quickness and strength that characterized his Pro Bowl years since setting an NFL record with 416 rushing attempts in 2006. He set the team single-season rushing record that season with 1,789 yards.

This year, in 132 carries behind inconsistent blocking, he averaged only 2.7 yards per carry. He ends his Chiefs career with 5,996 yards rushing and 55 touchdowns. He also caught 151 passes for 1,369 yards and six TDs.

Speaking of Vince Young, lol man he sure did get emo last season. He txt'd Kobe for help XD

Quote
A couple of times last year, when he was most frustrated, Vince Young would text Kobe Bryant, who had become something of a mentor. He'd write something like, "Man, I wanna play so bad. What do I do?'' The answer would always come back from Bryant with something like this: "Stay focused. Work on your craft.''

As Young told me last week: "That's what I needed -- someone I respected, like him or Brett Favre, to tell me everybody goes through tough times. Adversity comes, work hard, work on your game, and you'll come out of it OK.''

Chris Henry, dead at 26, could have been a role model

Redemption stories are the best kinds of stories. If someone's failed, lost their way or made more mistakes than we deem acceptable, I always find myself on that guy's side.

I'm not there supporting what they've done or making excuses for them, but hoping that they'll find a way to be better. Hoping that they'll learn from their mistakes, grow and become the person they can be. In one way or another, I think we're all striving for that.

That's what Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was doing when he lost his life this morning after falling out of a truck reportedly driven by his fiancee.

We know the guy had made mistakes, getting arrested multiple times and being suspended for half of the 2007 season, but those aren't important today. That was Henry's past. By all accounts, his future was better and brighter, because he had worked his tail off to make it that way. Changing your life is not easy.

Henry was doing it, though. In the preseason, his quarterback, Carson Palmer(notes), had raved about Henry's work ethic and his ability. According to Palmer, Henry had a great offseason and had "really turned his life around." Unfortunately, his season was cut short by injury when he broke his forearm against the Ravens on November 8.

He was 26 when he lost his life this morning. Just 26 years old. For as many headlines as he had made, it seemed like he should be older. The fact was, though, that he was still a very young man. He was just entering his football prime, and considering his natural gifts and the signs he had been showing before being put on injured reserve this year, he could have gone on to have a great, great career.

That's the tragedy here. It's not that we'll miss out on seeing a man who could have been a brilliant player, it's that someone who had once been so far down the wrong path could have come back. He was on his way. If things had continued to go the way they were headed, Chris Henry could have one day stood in front of the world as an example that no matter what you've done in the past, that your future can be better. He could have told the at-risk youth of the world, "Yes, it can be difficult to change the direction of your life, but it can be done, and you have the power to do it. I did it, and you can do it."

What a great thing that could've been for the world to have. Too many times, a gifted person comes along, and we automatically make them a role model. Inevitably, they end up doing something to let us down. The truth is, though, that those were never the role models we needed. The role models we need are the people who let us down first, and then show the strength and character to fight back from that.

Sooner or later, we're all going to let somebody down. We're all going to screw up. But life is about how you come back from it, how you learn from it and how you use it to make yourself a better, stronger person.

Chris Henry was becoming that guy. And we could have used that.

~~~

Really sad to hear about this and my condolences go out to his family and friends R.I.P.

so the Eagles beat the 49ers, awww, now from ESPN, Holmgreen becomes Browns President.

Holmgren to join Browns as team president

By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer

BEREA, Ohio (AP)—Mike Holmgren has decided to see if he can fix the Cleveland Browns.


Browns owner Randy Lerner said the sides reached an agreement on Monday. Lerner said current president Mike Keenan will transition to the role of chief financial officer.

“We will spend the rest of the week finalizing the details of the agreement and will make a formal announcement next week,” Lerner said in a statement.

It’s still not known what affect Holmgren’s hiring will have on first-year Cleveland coach Eric Mangini, who improved to 3-11 on Sunday following a 41-34 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

On Saturday, the 61-year-old Holmgren turned down a front-office position to return to the Seattle Seahawks, sparking speculation that he was headed to Cleveland.

Holmgren said he was intrigued by the Cleveland opportunity because of the absence of “layers” between him and Lerner, who in November announced he was looking to add a “serious, credible leader” to his organization.

Mangini might have some job security issues down the line lmao

would anybody be interested in playoff fantasy football?  Picking people from the playoff teams and ride them until the Super Bowl, the catch is if your player was part of the losing team, you can't use that spot again.  (sort of the NFL.com one but they don't have leagues though)

Chicago Bears DE Gaines Adams dies in SC at 26

GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP)—Gaines Adams(notes), a defensive lineman for the Chicago Bears who was an all-American at Clemson, died Sunday in South Carolina, the Bears said. He was 26.

The team said Adams died Sunday morning at Self Regional Hospital in his hometown of Greenwood, S.C.

“We are stunned and saddened by the news of Gaines’ passing,” the Bears said in a statement. “Our prayers are with his family during this difficult time.”

Adams was selected fourth overall in the 2007 NFL draft by Tampa Bay, but was traded to the Chicago Bears in October 2009. He had not been able to live up to expectations that he would revive the Buccaneers’ once-feared pass rush, having just 17 tackles and one sack in 15 games this season.

Adams fell short of the benchmark set by Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris, who said at the start of training camp that Adams would be considered a “bust” if he didn’t reach double digits in sacks.

The 6-foot-5, 258-pound defensive end was well-known among Clemson fans for breaking up Wake Forest’s field goal try and returning it for a touchdown in 2006 to defeat the Demon Deacons.

Adams said during training camp that he welcomed the challenge posed by Morris, who also called out the third-year pro after Adams began the season with lackluster performances in the first three games.

“In football you need that. Players tend to get in their own element and do things that they want to do. They need to be called out sometimes. He’s the coach. Whatever he says, goes,” Adams said in early August.

“I take it as a challenge. Being drafted fourth overall, that comes with the territory. It’s year three for me. Obviously it’s time for me to step up.”

I am speechless and sometimes it shows what it can do when you meant to performance and not for health :(  Too young for a heart attack  :smhid

Sorry Keith I might somewhat agree with you but didnt you do the same thing to Philly the last 2 weeks. I didnt see Dallas shut it down and put in the backups until like 2 min to go. Dont cry when it happens to you. Here is the whole story.

watched most of the 2nd half of the Colts-Jets. Sanchez had a real good game, just fuck. Jets gameplan to shut down the top weapons didn't include Garcon and Collie, whatever happens in Miami, Manning got a lease on life. Colts gotta establish that run!!

Fuck. You can't put this on Favre, he may be the gun slinger but for fucksake. ALL THOSE FUMBLES. AP WTH man.

And fuck all that talk of Favre retiring. He's coming back until he wins another Super Bowl.

Lotta suspect plays, like a few pass interference calls and the spot of the ball in OT. Brees didn't look right and if Freeney and Co. rush the fuck at him like the Saints put Bretts pants on the ground, Eli's gonna be whooping it up with Cooper in Miami.

What moog said x10 - chargers. Not that it makes sense but yeah whatever.

The thing about the colts is what i said on IRC. They have two teams (well duh. no srsly.) Manning is a fucking team of his own. So Saints will not just be facing Colts, theyre up against Colts + Manning. Coz yeah sorry Brees, you're neither as handsome nor anywhere near as good. Then of course. Saints has their own secret weapon tho. My boi Reggie Bush. Any man would go gay for him, and what position except taking-it-up-the-ass-position can't he play? Put him as KR/PR and he'll get there, get him running some routes and he'll get there. Put him in as an elusive RB and he'll get there. Reggie Bush and the endzone is like The Schlongtong and vagina. No matter what, it goes in there. Nuff said.

Again. Congrats Peyton.

CINCINNATI (AP)—Chad Ochocinco wants to show a Pro Bowl audience that he can kick it as well as catch it.

The Bengals receiver did some kickoffs Thursday during practice for the Pro Bowl in Miami, hoping to convince the coaches that he’s capable of going toe-to-toe in the all-star game.

Ochocinco told The Associated Press in a phone interview after practice that he’s planning to kick field goals during practice on Friday. He’s hoping to persuade AFC coaches that he could be more than a just receiver during the game on Sunday.

Ochocinco kicked an extra point and had a kickoff during a preseason game for the Bengals this season.

Chad "almost hachi-go" ochocinco, please stick to catching, but i do give him credit for kicking when the kicker was out :lol:

Warner brings end to stirring 12-year NFL career

By BOB BAUM, AP Sports Writer 23 minutes ago

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP)—Kurt Warner(notes) has called an end to one of the great storybook careers in NFL history.

The 38-year-old quarterback announced his retirement from the game on Friday after a dozen years in a league that at first rejected him, then revered him as he came from nowhere to lead the lowly St. Louis Rams to two Super Bowls, winning the first of them.

Written off as a has-been, he rose again to lead the long-suffering Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl a year ago.

“I’m excited about what’s next,” Warner said. “Before I was always excited about next season.”

Warner walked away with a year left on a two-year, $23 million contract, knowing he still had the skills to play at the highest level.

He had one of the greatest postseason performances ever in Arizona’s 51-45 overtime wild card victory over Green Bay on Jan. 10, but sustained a brutal hit in the Cardinals’ 45-14 divisional round loss at New Orleans six days later.

Warner leaves the game with a legacy that could land him in the Hall of Fame even though he didn’t start his first game until he was 28.

In a comparison with the 14 quarterbacks to make the Hall of Fame in the last 25 years, Warner has a better career completion percentage, yards per pass attempt and yards per game. Only Dan Marino had more career 300-yard passing games.

In 124 regular-season games, Warner completed 65.5 percent of his passes for 32,344 yards and 208 touchdowns. He and Fran Tarkenton are the only NFL quarterbacks to throw for 100 touchdowns and 14,000 yards for two teams.

Warner, who grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and played collegiately at Northern Iowa, ranks among the career leaders in a variety of passing statistics.

He was also the fastest player in NFL history to 10,000 yards passing and tied Dan Marino as fastest to reach 30,000.

He has the top three passing performances in Super Bowl history. His 1,156 yards passing in the 2008 playoffs broke the NFL record of 1,063 he set with St. Louis in 1999.

Warner’s rise from obscurity seems the stuff of sports fiction.

He played three seasons in the Arena Football League and one in NFL Europe, mixed in with a sting stocking grocery shelves back in Iowa.

Warner made the Rams as a backup in 1998, then was thrust into the starting role in 1999 when Trent Green(notes) was injured.

What followed was a masterful and wholly unexpected season, when he led the Rams to a 13-3 regular-season record, then a Super Bowl triumph over Tennessee. He was named the league and Super Bowl MVP.

St. Louis was upset in the first round of the playoffs the following season, but Warner had them back in the big game in 2001, where “The Greatest Show on Turf” lost a squeaker to New England. The season earned him a second NFL MVP award.

But after an injury-plagued 2002 season, he was sacked six times and suffered a concussion in a 2003 season-opening loss to the New York Giants. He never started for St. Louis again.

He signed a free agent contract with the Giants for 2004, but was replaced by rookie Eli Manning(notes) after nine games. Warner came to the Cardinals in 2005 and was an off-and-on starter before replacing the injured Matt Leinart(notes) part way through the 2007 season.

Warner had to beat out Leinart the following spring, then led the Cardinals to the NFC West crown and playoff victories over Atlanta, Carolina and Philadelphia before the narrow loss to Pittsburgh in last year’s Super Bowl, where he threw for 377 yards.

Off the field, Warner has been just as impressive.

He and his wife operate the First Things First Christian charitable foundation. Last year, he was named the NFL’s Man of the Year for his off-field and onfield accomplishments.

Warner’s departure leaves Leinart the presumed replacement. The former Heisman Trophy winner has started 17 games for Arizona but only one in the last two years.

 :cheers good career and good person

Reversal would've put Vikes in red zone

ESPN.com news services

It was the third-quarter hit during the NFC Championship Game that injured Brett Favre, a low blow the NFL is now acknowledging should have been called a penalty, reversing a subsequent interception.

"It's the type of hit that we don't want," NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira said, "... because clearly we're trying to protect the knees and we need to focus on this to make sure we don't miss [them]."

Appearing on the NFL Network and NFL.com this week, Pereira said the right call had not been made during the New Orleans Saints' 31-28 overtime victory Sunday.

With the score tied 21-21, Favre took a hit from Saints defensive end Bobby McCray. The quarterback's left ankle was injured during the play, and he got it treated on the sideline and remained in the game.

"Pretty much a direct shot into the back of [Favre's] legs," Pereira said of the hit.

The Vikings would have had a first down at the Saints' 19-yard line.

Instead, linebacker Jonathan Vilma's interception put the Saints at their own 31-yard line, though they failed to score on the resulting series.

McKinnie tossed for missing practice

ESPN.com news services

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Minnesota Vikings offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie has been dismissed from the NFC Pro Bowl team for unexcused absences.

The NFL said McKinnie missed practice Friday and Saturday and is subject to a fine. His agent didn't respond to messages seeking comment.

McKinnie released a statement through his publicist Saturday evening, saying he withdrew from the game because of injury.

"I am extremely honored to have been selected for this year's Pro Bowl," McKinnie said in the statement. "However my ongoing injuries in my feet and left ankle that I have encountered during the last portion of the season has hindered me during this week's training and preparing myself both mentally and physically for this Sunday's Pro Bowl game.

"I am very knowledgeable and appreciative of all my loyal fans and supporters and would like to apologize if I may have disappointed you in any way, but getting back 100 percent healthy at this time is my number one concern to perform even better in the upcoming season."

This was the first Pro Bowl selection for McKinnie, whose Vikings lost to New Orleans in the NFC championship last Sunday.

Defensive end Julius Peppers also had an unexcused absence Friday, but was back at practice Saturday.

Since the rosters for Sunday's game in Miami were first announced, more than a dozen players have been scratched.

Novacek's wife found dead

By Jeff Caplan
ESPNDallas.com


The wife of former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay Novacek has died, a spokesperson with the Tarrant County medical examiner's office said on Monday afternoon.

LeAnne Novacek, 45, was found dead at 9:05 a.m., according to Linda Anderson, spokesperson for the Tarrant County coroner's office.

At 8:37 a.m., Burleson police and fire departments responded to "a report of a medical emergency, possible suicide" at a residence in Burleson, according to Burleson police department spokesperson Sally Ellertson. The body was found in the bedroom of the residence, according to the police report.

Ellertson said police on the scene called the Tarrant County coroner's office, detectives and a victim's assistance coordinator.

The Tarrant County coroner's office said an autopsy would be performed on Tuesday. The police investigation is ongoing.

Jay Novacek, 47, played six seasons for the Cowboys from 1990 to 1996. The five-time Pro Bowler, who ranks ninth in team history with 3,576 career receiving yards on 339 receptions, was a beloved member of teams that won three Super Bowls in four seasons. He was a sixth-round draft choice out of Wyoming in 1985 by the St. Louis Cardinals.

After a back injury forced him to miss the 1996 season, Novacek retired in 1997. He and LeAnne continued to live in the area after his retirement, and Novacek remained involved with team. He signed autographs at Cowboys Stadium earlier this season.

2011 logo is first of NFL's standard look

By Calvin Watkins
ESPNDallas.com


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The North Texas Super Bowl Committee and the NFL unveiled the logo for Super Bowl XLV on Thursday morning, displaying Cowboys Stadium in the background with the Vince Lombardi Trophy sitting on top of the roman numerals for the game.

There is a new logo for every Super Bowl, but starting with the 2011 Super Bowl the logo will basically remain the same. The only difference is that the stadium backdrop and the roman numerals for the game will change for every year thereafter.

NFL officials looked at eight different designs until finalizing it recently. The NFL didn't present it to North Texas officials until last week.

"It's a unique mixture of icons that represents what this whole thing is all about. It's well done," said Bill Lively, the President and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host committee. "We've approached our mission not just for 45 but for many, many [Super Bowl] games to come."

The NFL also announced it's changing its postseason logo system and trophies.

The AFC and NFC Championship Game trophies will change from a brown base with a 'A' or 'N' on top of it surrounded by a players layered on a wall, to silver trophies in the make of a football.

Playoff logos will also change to reflect the football as a trophy.

All the new logos and trophies will take effect starting with the 2010 season.

"We feel that 45 is a special year," said Mark Waller, chairman of marketing for the NFL. "It feels like its the perfect time to launch it."

Epic indeed. I stopped watching football over the past few years for various reasons, but I still tune in for the Super Bowl, and this one was pretty damn epic in terms of a perennial underdog finally coming up on top, and doing it in comeback fashion as well.

Before the game I really wasn't too sure about who I would've picked to win, but I did want to see the Saints take it after all the franchise had gone through for its entire existence, as well as what their city had gone through in recent years, so it was awesome to see them not only win but win in the way that they did. The surprise onside kick, the two point conversion, the late interception TD return...now everyone will know who exactly dat is.

Congrats to the New Orleans Saints for finally getting theirs! :twothumbs

ESPN.com news services

NEW YORK -- The New Orleans Saints' victory over Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl was watched by more than 106 million people, surpassing the 1983 finale of "M*A*S*H" to become the most-watched program in U.S. television history, the Nielsen Co. said Monday.

Compelling story lines involving the city of New Orleans and its ongoing recovery from Hurricane Katrina and the attempt at a second Super Bowl ring for Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning propelled the viewership. Football ratings have been strong all season.

"It was one of those magical moments that you don't often see in sports," said Sean McManus, president of CBS News and Sports.

Nielsen estimated Monday that 106.5 million people watched Sunday's Super Bowl. The "M*A*S*H" record was 105.97 million.

The viewership estimate obliterated the previous record viewership for a Super Bowl -- last year's game between Arizona and Pittsburgh. That game was seen by 98.7 million people, Nielsen said. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2009/news/story?id=4897094)

Rams sale agreement in place

Associated Press

ST. LOUIS -- Rumors that the St. Louis Rams were being sold have been rampant the past couple of years, raising concerns that the franchise would end its recent sad-sack run with a move out of town.

The Rams announced Thursday that its majority owners have indeed agreed to sell their stake, but to a potential buyer within driving distance -- and one who doesn't want to relocate the once-proud franchise.

If approved by a 75 percent vote of NFL owners, Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez, the children of the late Rams owner Georgia Frontiere, will sell their 60 percent stake to Shahid Khan, the 55-year-old president of an auto parts manufacturer, Flex-N-Gate, in Urbana, Ill.

"Today is a tremendously exciting day, I think, for the organization," said Kevin Demoff, Rams executive vice president of football operations and chief operating officer. "Whether or not the sale to a prospective buyer goes through I think it reaffirms to everybody the commitment this club has to St. Louis and our belief in this marketplace."

Ravens sign Stallworth to 1-year deal

ESPN.com news services

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Wide receiver Donte' Stallworth has signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, hoping to resurrect a career that was halted by a manslaughter conviction.

Stallworth was recently released by the Cleveland Browns after being reinstated by the NFL following a one-year suspension. He was suspended for violating the league's personal-conduct policy after pleading guilty to a DUI vehicular manslaughter charge.

Stallworth served 24 days of a 30-day sentence in a Miami jail for striking and killing Miami construction worker Mario Reyes with his car while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The Ravens announced the signing Wednesday.

The deal is worth $900,000, with an additional $300,000 in incentives. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4921333)

Butler to 'step away from the game'

Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills starting right tackle Brad Butler announced his retirement on Thursday.

The news comes as a surprise to the Bills after the 26-year-old Butler completed his fourth NFL season.

Butler majored in government studies at Virginia, and spent the 2008 offseason interning at Kemp Partners in Washington DC with former and late Bills quarterback and congressman Jack Kemp.

"My passion for education, country and community is something that I am ready to devote my full attention to," he said in a statement released by the team. "I believe the best way to pursue these spheres of interest is to step away from the game of football at this point in my life."

Butler started all but two of the 33 career games he played in after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2006 draft. He was limited to just two games in 2009 after sustaining a serious knee injury in Week 2 against Tampa Bay.

NFL may change OT rules for playoffs

INDIANAPOLIS -- An NFL spokesman said Saturday the league could change its overtime format for playoff games at a meeting next month.

Under the new format, both teams would get the ball at least once unless the first team to get the ball scores a touchdown, Greg Aiello said. If the first team to get the ball makes a field goal and the other team ties the game, action would continue until a team scores again.

Under the current rules, the first team to score wins.

"There have been various concepts that have been discussed in recent years, but this one has never been proposed," Aiello said.

The competition committee will discuss the new concept with teams and players at league meetings March 21-24 in Orlando, Fla., when it could come to a vote. At least two thirds of the teams would need to agree to the changes for new rules to be adopted.

The competition committee met with the players' union and players on Thursday during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Discussion continued when the competition committee met with a general managers' advisory committee on Friday.

The debate about the rules gained steam after the NFC championship game, when New Orleans beat Minnesota 31-28 in overtime and Brett Favre's Vikings never got the ball in the extra period. Under the proposed rule, Minnesota would have gotten another possession because the Vikings didn't allow a touchdown.

Overtime was adopted for regular season games in 1974, a sudden-death format that allowed games to end in a tie if neither team scored in 15 minutes. Overtime for playoff games always has been sudden death.

Bills decline to offer Owens contract

Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Terrell Owens is on the market after the Buffalo Bills announced Saturday they do not plan to offer him a contract.

The Bills also declined to offer contracts to defensive end Ryan Denney and wide receiver Josh Reed, allowing them to become unrestricted free agents at midnight on March 5.

"We wanted to inform all three players ahead of the start of the free agency period so they could begin making their plans," Bills general manager Buddy Nix said. "We just felt that was the right thing to do. All three have represented our organization with class and we thank them for their dedication and hard work."

Owens, who will turn 37 in December, caught 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns in his only season in Buffalo. He also ran for a touchdown.

"I would like to thank the great fans in Buffalo, Ralph Wilson & the Bills organization for all their supports this past season," Owens said on Twitter.

The six-time Pro Bowl receiver caught his 1,000th pass in Week 16 at Atlanta to become the sixth player in league history to reach the milestone. Owens then moved into third place on the career list with 14,951 yards receiving in a 30-7 win over Indianapolis in Week 17.

Denney and Reed were both second-round picks in the 2002 draft.

Denney made 318 tackles and 23½ sacks in his career, while Reed is fifth on the club's career receiving list with 311 catches for 3,575 yards.

Funny tweet I just read: millions of people in the USA will likely bypass the NHL product even after today's instant classic hockey match.  On the other hand, 80 million people who watch the Super Bowl don't watch any of the regular season. 

I assume the NFL gets by, somehow...

Report: Pacman to work out for scouts

ESPN.com news services

Adam "Pacman" Jones will continue to try to get back on an NFL roster by holding a pro day-style workout for NFL scouts on March 19, a source told NFL.com.

The workout will be in New Orleans following Tulane's pro day, according to the report.

League sources told ESPN Insider Adam Schefter that Jones worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Feb. 11 in what was thought to be the cornerback's first workout with an NFL team since the Dallas Cowboys released him in February 2009.

Jones has avoided trouble since his last brush with the law in October 2008. He was involved in an alcohol-related incident with a bodyguard assigned to him by the Cowboys, and hotel employees called police. No arrests were made nor charges filed. But the NFL suspended Jones for four games because the incident was a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

Jones began his time in Dallas under close league scrutiny after he was suspended for the entire 2007 season for multiple violations of the conduct policy while he was a member of the Tennessee Titans. The Cowboys traded for Jones before his suspension was over, and he was reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Aug. 28, 2008.

RB Choice: 'I know I will land on my feet'

By Calvin Watkins
ESPNDallas.com


Dallas Cowboys running back Tashard Choice has heard some of the offseason rumors, and he said he wouldn't mind a trade if it meant more playing time.

"I heard a lot of rumors and speculation," Choice told ESPNDallas.com after a workout in his hometown of Atlanta on Monday. "It lets you know other teams want you and that they've noticed you. I want to stay here. It's a great place and a great organization to play for. It's just that the situation that I'm in, man, it's hard.

"I only get to actually run the football when the other two guys get hurt, and I don't want the other two guys to get hurt. I want them to play well and be on top of their games."

Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said during the NFL scouting combine that the team hasn't received any offers and that the team plans to keep its three main running backs -- Choice, Marion Barber and Felix Jones.

"We don't have any control, but God willing everything will be straight in the long run," Choice said. "If I land somewhere, I know I will land on my feet and I know I'll be cool."

In two seasons mainly as a backup, Choice has rushed 156 times for 821 yards and five touchdowns. During his career, Choice has never rushed for 100 yards in a game.

Barber and Jones have combined to miss 15 out of a possible 32 regular-season games the last two seasons. Barber played through thumb and thigh injuries last season to finish with 932 rushing yards on 214 carries.

"It's not pretty cool when you only get to play when those two guys go down," Choice said.

Trade rumors surfaced when San Diego started shopping cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Cowboys coach Wade Phillips was Cromartie's defensive coordinator in San Diego.

But it didn't make sense because Cowboys starting cornerbacks Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins both reached the Pro Bowl as alternates. Nickel corner Orlando Scandrick, who lost the starting job to Jenkins early in the 2009 season, is highly regarded in the organization.

The rumors left Choice perplexed. His agent, Ben Dogra, said recently he hasn't heard anything about a trade for his client.

NFL, players union fight over pay cuts

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- In their latest round of bickering, the NFL and its players' association have exchanged prickly statements disputing whether players will have to take pay cuts as part of a new collective bargaining agreement.

After the NFL wrote on its labor Web site last week that no player would take a cut as a result of its proposal, the NFLPA responded Tuesday by saying -- tongue in cheek -- that it was ready to sign a deal guaranteeing that the salary cap won't be lowered and there will be no reduction in retired players' or other benefits under the CBA.

The NFLPA says on its site that, based on the league's statement, it renewed its proposal to freeze the salary cap at the 2009 level and asked the league to meet with its representatives immediately to extend the current labor agreement.

The NFL released a statement in response, saying the NFLPA intentionally misstated the league's proposal and is simply trying to "preserve an unacceptable economic system."

The current CBA expires in March 2011 and NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith has characterized the possibility of a work stoppage as a "14" on a scale of 1 to 10.

Without a new deal in place by Friday, 2010 will be the league's first uncapped season since 1993.

It was heartwarming when the long-downtrodden Saints won the Super Bowl. It didn't get any less heartwarming when Drew Brees made the media rounds in the weeks after the game, establishing himself as the sweetest and most humble man in America.

Vick gets Ed Block Courage Award

Associated Press

BALTIMORE -- Dozens of protesters lined up outside a banquet hall where Michael Vick said he was "very humbled" to be honored as one of 32 NFL players to receive the Ed Block Courage Award.

The award is presented to players who exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. Each NFL team selects a recipient, and most of the winners were on hand for the gala event Tuesday night.

Vick was picked as the Philadelphia Eagles' representative by a unanimous vote of his teammates. Once a star quarterback with the Atlanta Falcons, Vick was convicted in 2007 for his role in a dogfighting ring and served 18 months in federal prison.

This was the first award Vick has received since being reinstated by the NFL in September 2009.

Hall of Fame lineman Olsen dies

ESPN.com news services

Merlin Olsen, a Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive lineman who was part of the Los Angeles Rams' "Fearsome Foursome" line of the 1960s, has died after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 69.

Utah State, Olsen's alma mater, said he died outside of Los Angeles early Thursday after battling cancer. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a cancer of the lung lining, last year.

"This was the voice of a man who not only became one of our country's most decorated athletes, but also one of the most accomplished and respected people ever to hail from the state of Utah," said Stan Albrecht, president of Utah State.

The burley giant from northern Utah joined Deacon Jones, Lamar Lundy and Rosey Grier on the Rams' storied "Fearsome Foursome" defensive line known for either stopping or knocking backward whatever offenses it faced. The Rams set an NFL record for the fewest yards allowed during a 14-game season in 1968.

Olsen was rookie of the year for the Rams in 1962 and is still the Rams' all-time leader in career tackles with 915. He was named to 14 consecutive Pro Bowls, a string that started his rookie year, and was voted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1982.

Olsen was also an established television actor with a role on "Little House on the Prairie," then starring in his own series, "Father Murphy," from 1981 to 1983 and the short-lived "Aaron's Way" in 1988.

Olsen was a consensus All-American at Utah State and won the 1961 Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman. The Rams drafted Olsen third overall in 1962 and he spent the next 15 years with the team before retiring in 1976.

Utah State honored Olsen in December by naming the football field at Romney Stadium "Merlin Olsen Field." Because of his illness, Olsen's alma mater didn't want to wait until football season and made the announcement during halftime of a basketball game.

Olsen was well enough to attend, but did not speak at the event. He stood and smiled as he waved to fans during a standing ovation and chants of "Merlin Olsen!" and "Aggie Legend!"

Utah State is also planning a statue of Olsen at the southeast corner of the stadium.

The Rams also honored Olsen during a game Dec. 20, with a video tribute narrated by Dick Enberg, Olsen's longtime broadcast partner. Olsen did not attend because of his health. His name was already part of the Ring of Fame inside the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis along with other franchise standouts.

He was voted NFC defensive lineman of the year in 1973 and the NFL MVP in 1974.

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- LaDainian Tomlinson's visit with the New York Jets is going to overtime.

The free-agent running back met with team officials at the Jets' training facility in Florham Park, N.J., on Friday and had dinner with coach Rex Ryan, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and others in New Jersey.

Tomlinson was scheduled to fly back home to San Diego but changed his flight after arr
