SWEEET!!!
I called up DirecTV because I was concerned about the increase in my bill for the NFL package 'Sunday Ticket' and as soon as I mention possibly dropping the package, they offered the 'Super Fan' for Free Plus free DVR including a $10.00 discount so my bill is less than $100/month !!

Report: Tony Romo Dumps Jessica Simpson the Night Before Her Birthday
Monday, July 13, 2009 

It seems Jessica Simpson got an unwanted birthday present for her 29th Friday – according to People magazine, boyfriend Tony Romo broke up with her the night before.

A source close to the singer, 29, told People that she was “heartbroken” at the news.

“She loves Tony. But it’s been difficult lately. He’s busy with his career and she’s getting ready to shoot her show ‘The Price of Beauty.’ They decided to part ways.”

The Dallas Cowboys star even spent his [ex]girlfriend’s party with a group of friends at Hollywood club MyHouse – and was spotted with a few girls who swung by his table.

Simpson’s rep declined to comment on the matter to FOXNews.com.

The lovelorn Simpson – who was married to Nick Lachey and briefly dated John Mayer – said she felt like she was “on top of the world yelling ‘I LOVE GETTING OLDER’” on her Twitter page Saturday.

NFL Looks Into Allegations Against Roethlisberger
Wednesday, July 22, 2009 


Ben Roethlisberger
RENO, Nev. —  In the last year, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a Super Bowl title and solidified his legacy as one of the game's great big-game quarterbacks.

But it's what may have happened at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in the summer of 2008 that is the big talk around Steelers camp as the quarterback gets ready to defend the team's championship.

A woman has filed a bombshell lawsuit saying Roethlisberger raped her in a hotel penthouse a year ago, a claim he vehemently denies. The woman never went to the authorities with her story, and it's unclear why she decided to file the lawsuit seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars a full year later.

"Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct," Roethlisberger lawyer David Cornwell said in a statement. "If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated."

He did not immediately reply to a phone message and e-mail seeking more comment.

The stunning allegations served as a major distraction for Roethlisberger as the Steelers get ready to report to camp next week. The Steelers and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said they were looking into the allegations against Roethlisberger, who has won two Super Bowls in his five-year career and is one of the biggest names in sports.

"I don't know enough of the details, but it's a civil lawsuit. It's something that we obviously will look into," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday when asked about it in New York during an unrelated news conference. "I've been in touch with the Steelers about it."

Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said the team was aware of the lawsuit, and "we are gathering information."

Lockett confirmed that Roethlisberger had canceled a news conference scheduled for Thursday to promote Shaquille O'Neal's new TV series that debuts Aug. 8 on ABC. Roethlisberger is one of the top athletes the NBA All-Star center intends to challenge in a series of skills tests in their respective sports.

The lawsuit seeks a minimum of $440,000 in damages from the quarterback, at least $50,000 in damages from the Harrah's officials and an unspecified amount of punitive damages "sufficient to deter" Roethlisberger and the others "from engaging in such conduct in the future." The suit alleges hotel officials for Harrah's Lake Tahoe tried to cover up the incident.

The woman's lawsuit says she didn't file a criminal complaint because she feared Harrah's would side with Roethlisberger and she would be fired.

The woman was working as an executive casino host last July when she said Roethlisberger struck up a friendly conversation at her desk during the golf tournament.

The next night, she said he telephoned her to tell her his television sound system wasn't working and asked her to look at it. She said she was unable to find a technician so she handled it herself because she had been told it was important to please the celebrities.

In Roethlisberger's room she said she determined the TV was functioning properly but as she turned to leave, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound quarterback blocked her exit, the suit claims.

The lawsuit said he grabbed her and started to kiss her. It said she was "shocked and stunned that this previously friendly man, that appeared to be a gentleman in her previous contacts with him was suddenly preventing her from leaving, was assaulting her and battering her."

She said she feared that because he was a football player he could or would physically harm her if she tried to fight him off, but that she objected and protested several times.

"But instead of stopping, Roethlisberger began fondling plaintiff through her dress and between her legs," the suit said. He then "held her against her will and physically moved plaintiff and pushed her onto his bed" where he raped her, the suit says.

She told him, "You don't want to do this," and begged him "I am not on any type of birth control."

Afterward, he asked if there was a security camera in the hallway. She said he then instructed her to claim she had repaired his television if anyone asked why she was in his room.

The lawsuit says the woman required hospitalization for treatment for depression after the alleged attack.

Efforts to reach the woman Tuesday were unsuccessful.

The woman's lawyer, Calvin R. Dunlap, declined to answer questions about the lack of a criminal complaint and why the civil action was brought a year after the incident allegedly took place.

"Neither I nor our client will be making any comment," Dunlap said in an e-mail. "We believe the matter should be resolved in court rather than in the media."

Teresa Duffy, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office in Douglas County, which includes part of Lake Tahoe, said no complaints were filed about such an incident either with sheriff's deputies or the district attorney's office.

The lawsuit also names eight Harrah's employees as defendants and alleges the cover-up involved the chief of security at Harrah's Lake Tahoe and was carried out with the knowledge of John Koster, president of Harrah's northern Nevada operations.

John Packer, spokesman for the hotel-casino, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

Harrah's Entertainment, the hotel-casino's parent company, declined comment.

"We don't comment on pending legal matters," Jacqueline Peterson said from company headquarters in Las Vegas.

Last week, Roethlisberger played in the 20th annual American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament at Lake Tahoe, finishing tied for 30th in the field of 89 golfers. It was not immediately known if he stayed at Harrah's.

I hate to call someone a lair, but if I were raped, I would certainly:

1.   Call the police ASAP
2.   Call my brother or someone else to break Ben's legs
3.   Have him arrested and get his name in the paper ASAP
4.   File civil suit ASAP

I would certainly NOT;

1.   Fail to call police
2.   Fail to demand a criminal case be brought
3.   Wait a year and then ask for money.

This just sounds fishy.

This one time I'm inclined to agree.

Either that or he started paying her hush money at the time it happened and recently decided that he could cut her off ("No one will believe you now").

Or she's bonkers.

It's women like this who are the biggest problem for other women.

That's how domestic violence used to be handled....the male family members would go "Sonny Corleone" on their ass and cops would laugh at them if they tried to get then arrested.  And that threat would keep a lot of husbands in line.

But the cops are too scared these days for being accused of whatever....

Owens says NFL should reinstate Vick

Updated: July 26, 2009, 1:05 PM EDT
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Terrell Owens wants Michael Vick to be reinstated immediately by the NFL, and said any extension of the quarterback's suspension would be similar to "kicking a dead horse."

Speaking after the Buffalo Bills training camp practice Sunday morning, the star receiver referred to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of Vick's status as "unfair." Owens also lobbied to have more of the league's high-profile players voicing their opinion in support of Vick and asked the NFL Players Association to become more involved.

"I think he's done the time for what he's done. I don't think it's really fair for him to be suspended four more games," Owens said, referring to reports that the NFL is considering to further punish Vick. "It's almost like kicking a dead horse in the ground. ... The guy's already suffered so much. And to add a four-game suspension on a two-year prison sentence, that's ridiculous."

Vick met with Goodell this week but has yet to learn when he will be allowed to resume his NFL career. The former Falcons star was suspended indefinitely in August 2007 after he admitted bankrolling a dogfighting operation.

Vick has served a 23-month federal sentence and was freed from home confinement on July 20. He must still serve three years' probation.

Owens said Vick deserves a second chance.

"Why shouldn't he? I mean, there's a lot more guys around the league that have done far more worst things than that and gotten second chances," Owens said.


Owens said he would welcome Vick as a teammate.

"Michael Vick is a guy that really hasn't any character issues besides what he got a prison sentence for, so why not?" he said.

Bills safety George Wilson, the team's NFLPA representative, agreed with Owens.

"How do you bring a man out of suspension and then suspend him again? I mean, he's paid his debt," Wilson said. "I think you just continue to hold him down by bringing him back and then suspend him."

Wilson said he intends to discuss Vick's status with Owens and other teammates to determine whether to bring the Bills players' position to the union.

"We'll see where it goes, but I think Terrell is right in stating his position," Wilson said. "This is an instance where perhaps our players association needs to try to get involved."

The union's position has been that it will support Vick on a personal level until Goodell decides how to proceed. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith met with Vick this past week, and intends to discuss the player's status with Goodell.

The Bills have declined comment on discussing Vick.

2)  If the Bills hire Vick, this might be the one time GW Bush had a good idea about marching into Buffalo....

Michael Vick Reinstated by the NFL
Monday, July 27, 2009 


NEW YORK —  Michael Vick has been conditionally reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Vick can participate without delay in preseason practices, workouts and meetings and can play in the final two preseason games — if he can find a team that will sign him.

Once the season begins, Vick may participate in all team activities other than games, but could play as soon as October.

Goodell called a news conference for late Monday afternoon.

Vick sweepstakes: One day and, so far, no takers

By RACHEL COHEN, AP Sports Writer 12 hours, 28 minutes ago

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announces that he has reinstated Michael Vick(notes) with conditions, Monday, July 27, 2009, in New York. Vick was suspended in August 2007 when the quarterback admitted bankrolling a dogfighting operation on his property in Virginia.

If any NFL teams are interested in Michael Vick(notes), they’re not saying.

A day after the quarterback was conditionally reinstated to the league, only the Baltimore Ravens would directly acknowledge evaluating him.

“We’ve had long discussions about Michael Vick and we have a feeling about how he would impact our team and not impact our team,” coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday.

General manager Ozzie Newsome declined comment. Previously, he has said the Ravens have enough quarterbacks.

Also, the news reports with the headline "Favre still retired"  had more than a little of The Onion about them.

Delhomme ready to prove he's worthy of deal

CHARLOTTE -- The Carolina Panthers didn't do many deals this offseason, but one they did became a lightning rod for a frustrated fanbase.

After turning in the worst performance of his career in the playoffs, the Panthers gave quarterback Jake Delhomme a five-year extension which will keep him in Charlotte for at least the next three seasons and possibly through 2014.

It wasn't the response fans expected after his six-turnover debacle in the 33-13 playoff loss to Arizona, a night in which he could seemingly do no right.

The reactions ranged from shock to anger to disgust, and even Delhomme's proponents were curious about the details.

But to Delhomme, the new contract (which he never expected) gives him a chance to do two things he has always wanted to do — finish where he got his first chance to be a starter, and to fix the problem he left behind.

“We're trying to do great things here, and I want to be a part of it,” Delhomme said. “Last year, I really and truly felt we were on the verge. We were 12-4, had a great season ... and one game ... especially from me. I can't really say anybody else on the team. I felt everything I put in from the rehab and everything just went down the drain, and it was more ‘Why, what would I do different, why didn't I see them?' It's something I still ask myself. It just wasn't my night. All the preparation ... I probably did too much.

“But if fans were disappointed with the extension, the quickest way to make them happy is to go out and play well. I'm not gonna try to talk about it. You win, it takes care of itself.”

That reaction is typical Delhomme.

Made a mess? Fix it. Things not working out? Work harder. Bad luck? Push through it.

To his teammates, the new contract was a relief as much as anything. They trust Delhomme, despite the playoff performance, and know that the contract eliminates some questions if he has a similar game early this season.

“I definitely don't think you sum up somebody's career based on one game,” left tackle Jordan Gross said. “They say you're only as good as your last performance, and that holds a lot of weight. But Jake's our leader and he's by far our best quarterback and the best guy to give us a chance to win.

“I think that was a huge show of support of him to the community and to the whole league that Jake's our guy and we want to keep it that way for a long time.”

There's likely no one in the city who has beaten up on Delhomme more than himself. It's that kind of accountability that has made him so popular in the locker room. He even joked that as teammates and friends called to console them, he ended up making them feel better, because he's already internalized the implosion and turned it into fuel for the coming year.

“Any player, whether it's good or bad, needs to forget what happened yesterday,” Gross said. “I definitely think he's got a lot to prove based on how we lost that game.

“But he's fine, he's back, and he's probably sick of talking about it.”

Still, his last performance contributes to his own astonishment at the contract. From where he started, he's genuinely fortunate to have gotten the security his last contract extension (in 2004) provided, and never imagined there would be more. He was undrafted out of Southwest Louisiana, and spent six years doing next to nothing for his home-state New Orleans Saints. To come here initially on a two-year, $4 million pact was a dream come true, the six-year, $38 million deal after the Panthers' 2003 Super Bowl run just added to that feeling.

“This is the honest truth; This is not like it was when I was waiting for my first contract,” he said of the discussions. “Everybody knows you have one chance to make a payday in the NFL. That's kind of how it goes. Once I signed in '04, that was it in my mind. I knew we would probably have to restructure, because we had done so every year, and my (salary cap) number had gotten huge. I knew at some point we would.

And Yet Favre Can't say 'WHEN' Yet Again?! ::)

Quote
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Brett Favre's latest retirement lasted all of three weeks.

The three-time MVP has done an about-face for the second time in as many years and will play for the Vikings this season.

The stunning turn of events sent shockwaves throughout the NFL, but should come as no surprise to anyone who read Jay Glazer's column Monday on FOXSports.com.

If the wait for Favre's decision seemed neverending, it was resolved Tuesday in a few short hours: the 39-year-old Favre jumped on a team plane in Mississippi and was picked up at the St. Paul airport by coach Brad Childress himself. The two drove to the team's practice facility, where Favre waved to hundreds of cheering fans.

No less than 90 minutes later, Favre was on the field in his familiar No. 4 jersey with purple shorts and a purple helmet, a vision that has had Packers fans cringing about for months. He shook hands with a few of his new teammates and quickly began throwing as fans peeked through the security fence to catch a glimpse of the superstar.

Shortly after practice began, the Vikings confirmed the agreement that seemed so inevitable all summer, only to be held up on July 28 when the man who holds every major NFL career passing record told Childress he wasn't ready to play, citing a lack of confidence in his beat-up body to hold up over an entire season.

Childress and Favre were expected to discuss the change of heart at a news conference later Tuesday.

Childress a few weeks ago said he had not planned to pursue Favre after he said he was staying retired. And yet here comes Favre, once reviled by a Vikings fan base that hustled to welcome him to town.

"I don't have any problem rooting for one of the greatest quarterbacks ever," said Phil Setala, a 23-year-old from Minneapolis who was at practice proudly wearing a purple No. 4 jersey.

Even the governor chimed in.

"It's going to be good for the team. It's going to be good for the state. It's going to be exciting," a giddy Gov. Tim Pawlenty said after a speech.

Last month, Favre explained his decision by saying he had to be "careful not to commit for the wrong reasons."

"I'm 39 with a lot of sacks to my name," he said.

He has a lot of interceptions to his name, too, more than any other quarterback in NFL history. The last time Favre appeared in the playoffs — a bitter loss at Lambeau Field by the Packers to the Giants in the NFC Championship game following the 2007 season — he put up one of his worst performances in recent memory.

Now the question becomes how Favre will fit in with a team that's already done with the grind of training camp, not to mention how his health will hold up so soon after he questioned it. Favre had arthroscopic surgery to fix his throwing shoulder in May.

The Vikings got an encouraging performance in their preseason opener last week from quarterback Sage Rosenfels, who has been competing with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job, but neither of them have been consistently sharp in practice this month.

And neither is anywhere in Favre's league. His zinger of an arm and toughness in the pocket are a combination few possess. With an offense he claimed this summer he could operate in his sleep, Favre seems to fit well with Minnesota — epecially given the Vikings' problems finding a reliable quarterback since Childress took over in 2006.

The Vikings have Pro Bowl players all over their roster, with reigning NFL rushing leader Adrian Peterson in the backfield and a dominant defensive line. No matter who's behind center, they ought to be in position to defend their NFC North title.

To win the conference, and perhaps that elusive Super Bowl, they'll need stability at the sport's most critical position.

Favre has wrestled with retirement for most of this decade and the will-he-or-won't-he saga became an annual offseason drama for the Packers, his longtime home. In Green Bay, the latest news elicted a few shrugs, little more.

A few months after Favre's tearful goodbye news conference in March 2008, Green Bay traded him to the Jets when he tried to come back, only to learn the Packers were committed to Aaron Rodgers. Favre started strong in New York, but faded down the stretch amid problems with his throwing arm and, with another "I'm done" announcement, headed for his second retirement.

The Jets released him from his contract right after the draft and soon after, the Vikings were openly expressing interest. Favre spent the summer working out in Mississippi and led everyone to believe he was on his way back to the NFL until last month.

"It was the hardest decision I've ever made," Favre told ESPN then. "I didn't feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable."

My prediction, Vikes will be 10-6. Clinch the North easily over the Bears who will go 7-9 and the Packers at 6-10.

I'm hoping for Super Bowl this year, last year was a disappointment. Adrien Peterson is the best player in the league in my (biased) opinion.

The guy organizing the trip to the Bills/ Panthers game I'll be going to has a connection that can make those red 50th Anniversary shirts locally and they'll be ready in time for our game Oct 25
 :highfive:

Hopefully the person making your shirts is not the same one making the bucket hats!

Richardson's sons resign from Panthers

CHARLOTTE -- Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson called his ownership group together Tuesday morning to tell them about the changes in the franchise, but the tenor of his message resounded as much as the text.

His sons, Jon and Mark Richardson, resigned from their respective posts with the team Tuesday. Jon, the president of Panthers Stadium LLC, had planned his departure for months, according to a number of team officials. Mark, the team’s president who worked alongside his father through the awarding and growth of the franchise, was more of a surprise.

The elder Richardson didn’t delve into the details of his sons’ departure, but left his investors feeling more confident than ever of his vision.

"What people need to understand, is when you sell Jerry Richardson short, you better prepare to meet him head-on," said Johnny Harris, the local real estate developer who’s been part of the group since its inception.

Harris described Richardson at Tuesday morning’s meeting as "strong as a bear" and "energetic" as he explained the changes.

Richardson, 73, underwent heart transplant surgery in February, and has gradually begun taking a more active role in his team.

Without his sons — who oversaw the day-to-day operations of the stadium and the business side of things — he’s going to have to be.

There are any number of candidates to oversee the business and operations aspects, and it seems clear at this point that there’s no change coming on the football side.

Harris also underscored the team’s initial statement that the Panthers aren’t for sale, and that there’s no danger of relocation.

"That upsets me," Harris said of that speculation. "There was absolutely no discussion of a sale of relocation."

Harris also described the elder Richardson's approach to the meeting as upbeat.

"Other people can run the operations," Harris said. "This is the man the NFL gave a franchise to, and this is the man we invested with."

Here is the complete text from today's press release

Stadium president Jon Richardson and team president Mark Richardson have announced their resignations from the Carolina Panthers.

Jon, who notified the Panthers' staff last month of his intention, has been involved with Bank of America Stadium since its construction. Mark oversaw the effort to obtain an expansion franchise and has served as the team president since the retirement of Mike McCormack in 1998.

"Both Mark and Jon made great contributions to the stadium and team that have enabled us to enjoy much success over the last 15 years," said Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson. "At the same time, I am thankful that we have a staff that has been in place for many years and knows our philosophy."

Jon oversaw the construction and opening of the stadium in 1996. Although more than 20 facilities have opened in the National Football League since then, Bank of America Stadium remains one of the most highly regarded venues in the NFL.

"It has been a very exciting time, and I feel very fortunate and pleased to have been a part of it," Jon said. "We have a great staff that has been in place for a long time, and I am confident they will move forward without missing a beat."

Mark was most innovative in the marketing and naming rights areas, overseeing the team's business operations from the franchise's inception. He was one of the first executives to obtain naming rights for a stadium, reaching two different naming rights agreements for the stadium. His integrated approach to marketing also enabled the Panthers to be one of the few teams to bring their broadcasting rights in house.

"It has been a great opportunity to work with a franchise from the start and have a chance to see it mature," Mark said. "It has been a unique experience to see dreams become reality."

Both Jon and Mark will remain members of the Panthers Partnership Group.

If so, post and let me know if your preference is for a live draft or auto-pick. ESPN has drafts all the way up to the start of the season.

Not good timing for Mr Merriman.    He could lose his starting job to thier first round draft pick and millions of dollars in free agent contracts after the season.    I hope that "Tila Tequila" was worth it.

It's so cool, and the 1st Half of the Pack/Cardinals game from a couple of weeks ago was completely insane. Notwithstanding my lack of acumen pertaining to football, I thought we looked amazing and am looking forward to seeing this let loose this coming Sunday night against the Bears.

Well, media hype aside, it looks like the Vikings are still Peterson's team.  I'm not surprised.  Favre managed the game today and did a good job - it was all he was asked to do (I don't even remember many deep passes being CALLED - the one that I do remember was ruled an incompletion even though it wasn't).  I expect he'll get better in a few weeks.

As for every other team out there, let this be a lesson for you.  You can put eight, nine guys in the box all game long - and AD can still run for 180 yards against you.  How does it feel to know what's coming and not be able to stop it?  Not good, I'll wager.  Not good at all. ;D

Peterson is a superfreak. Favre just needs to put it on cruise control and enjoy the ride.

Quote
With McCown injured, Panthers ink Feeley

CHARLOTTE -- As if the Carolina Panthers didn't have enough quarterback problems, they had to sign another one Monday.

When they realized backup Josh McCown was going to miss at least six weeks, they decided to sign a veteran replacement, and quickly agreed to terms with former Philadelphia clipboard holder A.J. Feeley.

Feeley was en route to Charlotte on Monday night, and is expected to sign his deal today and get to work learning the Panthers system.


 The Panthers needed the veteran because they weren't comfortable going nearly two months with just two quarterbacks.

McCown was hauled off the field in pain after being twisted and taken down in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Eagles. Sources said his foot injury (which was more serious than the knee) would have kept him on the shelf at least six weeks, perhaps longer.

He shrugged when talking to reporters Monday, not knowing how much to say about his status. He joked that he had “a sprain, as far as you guys know.”

The 32-year-old Feeley is best known for his time in Philadelphia, but also has played for San Diego and Miami. In his career, he has a 7-8 record in 15 starts, with a career passer rating of 69.6.

In his last game (Dec. 2, 2007, against Seattle) he completed 19 of 42 passes for 220 yards, with a touchdown and four interceptions, which sounds awfully familiar to Panthers fans.

He was in camp with the Eagles this year, but became expendable when they signed Michael Vick, who is suspended until Week 3. The Eagles a vacancy when Donovan McNabb suffered a broken rib in Charlotte, but opted to sign veteran Jeff Garcia instead.

Feeley is not exclusively a West Coast offense player (as Garcia is), and two NFL scouts said Monday they thought he had the requisite arm strength to play in the Panthers system.

Cedric was VERY good to me last week, but I would have to go with ANYONE running against the Chiefs.
Aaron Rodgers should be the answer every week.    Like Ron Popeil, set it and forget it.
Vincent Jackson, even the CHIEFS passed on Baltimore last week.   Who on earth would get the ball to Brandon.   Besides, he is likely to go nuts before then.

 >:D

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Someone stole $400,000 worth of jewelry from Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner's home while he was at Ralph Wilson Stadium for a home game.

Whitner spokeswoman Patricia Horton tells The Associated Press that Whitner found out about the larceny after Sunday's win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Whitner, who lives in the suburb of Hamburg, returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown in the Bills' 33-20 win.
Horton says Whitner is upset and hurt by the theft and is on "high alert" because he doesn't know who is responsible.

She says he isn't interested in pressing charges and just wants his belongings back.

The theft comes a week after teammate Leodis McKelvin's front lawn was vandalized by two teenagers following Buffalo's loss to New England.

In the eternal battle between quantity and quality, between steady (Pennington) and spectacular (P. Manning), I guess you have to chalk one up to spectacular quality.

I will say, based on the three quarters of the game I was able to see (and my first extended glimpse at this innovation), that the Dolphins' Wildcat offense is pretty darned impressive.  As long as it is uncommon enough that opposing teams don't knuckle down and find a specific defense for it, Miami is going to reap some real dividends from it. (Uh, just like last year.  Yeah, not an original observation.  Sorry.)

I was starting to think it would never happen!

On another note, I was annoyed with the whole Favre retired/un-retired thing but that was good stuff today. I'm glad he's still out there. He's playing pretty smart and efficient. I assume in large part due to the presence of an first-class RB.

Buffalo NY (AP) –
                A seven-year old boy was at the center of
          a Erie County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a
          Court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a
          History of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially
          Awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody
          Law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to
          The highest degree possible..
         
          The boy surprised the court  when
          He proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he
          Adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested
          That he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they
          Also beat him.
           
          After considering the remainder of the
          Immediate family and learning that domestic violence was
          Apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented
          Step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
         
          After two recesses to check legal
          References and confer with the child welfare officials, the
          Judge granted temporary custody to the Buffalo Bills, whom the
          Boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.


This goes to show you how much faith we have in our Bills back home.. ::)

Rush for Rams? Limbaugh Bids for NFL Team

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

 AP

ST. LOUIS —  The lowly St. Louis Rams have someone who loves them.

Fiery conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday he is teaming up with St. Louis Blues hockey team owner Dave Checketts in a bid to buy the Rams, owners of the NFL's longest losing streak at 14 and just 5-31 since 2007.

In a statement, Limbaugh declined to discuss details, citing a confidentiality agreement with Goldman Sachs, the investment firm hired by the family of former Rams owner Georgia Frontiere to review assets of her estate, including the NFL team.

Limbaugh also declined to discuss other partners that might be involved in the bid, but said he and Checketts would operate the team.

"Dave Checketts and I have made a bid to buy the Rams and we are continuing the process," Limbaugh said.

Forbes magazine has estimated the Rams franchise has a value of $929 million.

Frontiere's children, Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez, inherited 60 percent of the Rams when their mother died in January 2008. Billionaire Stan Kroenke of Columbia, Missouri, owns the remaining 40 percent. It wasn't clear if the Limbaugh/Checketts bid was for 100 percent of the Rams or just the share owned by Rosenbloom and Rodriguez.

"Our strategic review of our ownership of the Rams continues," Rosenbloom said in a statement released late Monday. "We will make an announcement upon the completion of the process."

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined comment. Spokesmen for Checketts and the Blues declined comment.

Limbaugh is a native of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of St. Louis. He's so popular among conservatives — fans of his show call themselves "dittoheads" — that he has been called by some the voice of the Republican Party.

Limbaugh, who lives and works in Palm Beach, Florida, once worked for the Kansas City Royals and is an avid sports fan.

In 2003, Limbaugh worked briefly on ESPN's NFL pregame show, but resigned after saying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.

Checketts, 53, and his SCP Worldwide and Towerbrook Capital Partners purchased the Blues in 2006 from Bill and Nancy Laurie. The Blues have been gradually rebuilt under his leadership and made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2004.

Checketts first approached Rosenbloom in early 2009 about possibly buying the Rams. Eric Gelfand, a spokesman for Checketts, said in June that Checketts had put together a group consisting of local and outside investors.

An NFL rule allows ownership of NFL teams and teams in other sports, but only if they are in the same market. That would be a problem if Kroenke wanted to become majority owner of the Rams because he owns the NBA's Denver Nuggets and the NHL's Colorado Avalanche.

Checketts' company owns Utah's Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. But an NFL spokesman has said the cross-ownership rule does not apply to the MLS.

The potential sale of the Rams has been rumored since Frontiere's death. Her children are both involved in other interests and neither has ties to St. Louis.

The sale has raised concerns in St. Louis, which lost the Cardinals franchise after the 1987 season when Bill Bidwill moved the team to Arizona.

The NFL passed over St. Louis for the smaller Jacksonville, Florida, market when it awarded an expansion team in 1993. Two years later, civic leaders convinced Frontiere, a St. Louis native, to move the team from Los Angeles, the nation's second-largest market, back to her hometown.

Los Angeles is still without a team, and a loophole in the Rams' lease allows them to move as early as 2014 if the Edward Jones Dome is not deemed among the top quarter of all NFL stadiums. Though just 14 years old, the dome is fast becoming one of the league's older venues, and getting it into the top quarter seems unlikely.

Checketts became the youngest person ever to run an NBA team at age 28 when he became president and general manager of the Utah Jazz in 1984. He later ran the New York Knicks and Madison Square Garden.

At least with Limbaugh as owner, I can be safe in the knowledge that Michael Vick will never be the Rams QB.

Not the racist part, but when both of the owner's sons Bailed at the same time earlier this year, that started the speculation as to what he future holds for the Panthers in Carolina..

Besides, Rush would be a minority (oh the irony!) owner in the group.

Eagles' Michael Vick Will Star in 8-Part TV Series

Friday, October 09, 2009

AP

NEW YORK —  Michael Vick will be giving the public an inside look at his life during an eight-part television series scheduled to debut on BET next year.

Tentatively titled "The Michael Vick Project," the cable show will follow the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback as he tries to redeem himself after going to prison for 18 months for his role in operating a dogfighting ring. DuBose Entertainment, which is co-producing the series, and BET officially announced the show Friday.

"I think its important to show our youth and our kids that you face adversity but you're not responsible for falling, you're responsible for getting up," Vick said earlier this week. "I'm very remorseful about what happened and what I did. I just don't want other people to go down that path. I'm trying to make it right and repair past damages. That's all I want to show."

The show is part reality TV, part documentary, chronicling Vick's rise from a difficult childhood to becoming a star at Virginia Tech, the No. 1 overall draft pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 2001, and at the time the highest paid player in the NFL.

Its producers also are promising a stark, candid look at Vick's precipitous fall, which culminated in his prison term and bankruptcy, and his return to the NFL this season.

Vick signed a $1.6 million deal with the Eagles on Aug. 13, with a team option for next year worth $5.2 million. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell gave Vick his full reinstatement Sept. 3 and allowed him to return to the field in Week 3.

Vick has played sparingly his first two games, completing 11 of 15 passes for 45 yards with one interception, and running eight times for 36 yards and a score.

"Michael Vick's story is about second chances, and we are excited to have the opportunity to tell his complete story," BET president Loretha Jones said in a statement.

Vick said he began filming the show with his own crew when he was sent to prison, long before BET got involved. He said he wanted the cameras to see "the ugly results of my decisions" so that other people won't make the same mistakes.

"We started filming that a long time ago, not with BET but just on my own. My own film crew," Vick said. "We haven't been shooting lately, but it's something we've been doing since I was in prison and through the bankruptcy.

"It was all out then and I was doing it. I think as the season goes on, I won't have time for it. Maybe some time in 2010 we can pick up where we left off."

We've been hearing about the throwback uniforms all week, and every commentator used the term "ugly" at some point. I only listened to the radio, so did the TV show the even more hideous socks? The city of Denver actually held a mass rally to burn the things when Denver retired the uniform a few years later.

Really weird Rams game.   We lost to the Vikings 34-10 and it sounds like a blowout, but......

1.    Our back up qb fumbles the ball (somehow) at midfield and the Vikings run in for a TD.
2.    On our next drive we gain yards, but fumble at the one.
3.    On our next drive we gain yards, but fumble at the one.
4.    On a later drive we gain yards but throw a pick from the 6.
5.    On a later drive we gain yards but throw a pick from the 16.

That is a LOT of points to give away...... but the Rams seem to have found a pulse finally.

Also, the Green Bay and Viking fans who traveled to STL were COMPLETE ass-holes.    They may be great mid western people on their own turf, but give them beer and get the away from home, complete ASSHOLES.

Thurman Thomas Statue Missing, Day After Unveiling

Monday, October 12, 2009

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.  —  A chain saw carving of former Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas is missing from a parking lot across from Ralph Wilson stadium, a day after it was unveiled.

The project's creator, Therese Forton-Barnes, says the 8 1/2-foot statue carved from a fallen pine tree weighs more than 1,000 pounds and it took a crane to get it set up for Sunday's event.

She says it would have taken several strong people with a flatbed truck to remove it. It's unclear when it disappeared.

Orchard Park police are investigating.

The statue was unveiled before Sunday's Bills game against the Browns. It's the 34th in a fundraising series that grew out of a 2006 snowstorm that toppled thousands of trees. The carvings feature celebrities, animals and historical figures.

Bills fans rent billboard to rip teamAssociated Press
Updated: October 14, 2009, 10:02 PM EDT 8 comments
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - It didn't take long for Ryan Abshagen to discover how many Buffalo Bills fans are unhappy with their team and want owner Ralph Wilson to make sweeping changes.

In a little more than a week, Abshagen, an unemployed 18-year-old from New Freedom, Pa., raised enough money — $1,402 and counting as of Wednesday — through an Internet campaign to rent a billboard and advertise a message of discontent for everyone in Buffalo to see.
"I honestly never thought it would ever be this big," Abshagen said. "Fans are disgruntled. It's out there. It's big. People are going to hear about it."

 
Paper bag sales might be hotter than the Bills right now. (Mike Groll / Associated Press)

Starting early Monday and running for a week, the message will be flashed up to 3,000 times a day on a digital billboard overlooking Interstate 190 on the south side of the city, said Abshagen after signing a contract with an advertising company.

The display will feature a message that reads, "It's time to clean house, RALPH," referring to Wilson. Next to that will be a checklist of three names: Jauron; the team's chief college scout Tom Modrak; and vice president of pro personnel John Guy.

The level of fan frustration in Buffalo has been evident since the Bills missed the playoffs for a ninth straight season with their third consecutive 7-9 finish a year ago. It's reached a boiling point again with Buffalo at 1-4 and coming off an ugly 6-3 loss to Cleveland on Sunday.

Bills fans showed their displeasure by booing the team numerous times during a game in which the team's offense failed to score a touchdown for the second time in three weeks. Some fans were spotted wearing paper bags on their heads, while one group stood up to display matching white T-shirts with letters on them that spelled: "FIRE DICK NOW!"

Jauron, in his fourth season, is on the hot seat for the team's dreadful start. Modrak and Guy are being blamed for failing to build a competitive roster.

The Bills declined comment when asked about the billboard.

Jauron has declined to discuss his status, but has previously acknowledged the criticism.

Bills punter Brian Moorman rallied to Jauron's support when informed of the billboard.

"It doesn't discourage me because I know there's a lot more people out there that wouldn't do something like that. But it is a free country," Moorman said. "The important thing is that inside these walls, (Jauron) has our support. We believe in him."

Abshagen said he first proposed the billboard idea on a Bills fan message board following the team's 38-10 loss at Miami on Oct. 4.

A few days later, he designed a web site and began seeking donations. Abshagen said the site attracted little attention until several media outlets mentioned the campaign in stories, particularly after the loss to the Browns.

"That was the one that tilted the scales," he said. "That was embarrassing."

The response was so overwhelming that Abshagen said he raised the necessary $1,125 to rent the billboard for a week by Tuesday night. He's now begun a second campaign to raise another $1,125 to extend the rental for one more week or rent a second billboard.

Any leftover money, he said, will be donated to charity.

"We don't hate anybody," Abshagen said, when asked about how the message might be interpreted. "The donors and myself included, we don't mean any harm or wish to insult anyone. We simply just want to get our voice out as fans."

And he doesn't think it'll make any difference among fans should the Bills win on Sunday when they travel to play the New York Jets.

"I think the fans are fed up enough that it won't even have an effect," Abshagen said. "We are in too deep at this point."

And the jokes continue.. ::)

Quote
Buffalo, NY, October 15, 2009:
The Buffalo Bills football practice was delayed nearly two hours today after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the  field.  Head coach Dick Jauron immediately suspended practice and called police and federal investigators.

After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance, unknown to players, was the GOAL LINE.
 
Practice resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again this season.

I think Rivers is going to go off of Denver, so I would pick Jackson.    I would pick Mendenhall too.

I think I'll probably go with Jackson because even though Denver has a great pass defense, the Giant's pass D is insane.

I'm a bit concerned about a returning Willie Parker eating into Mendenhall's carries but how can I pass up that pathetic Browns rush D, right? Jacobs got chumped by Ahmad Bradshaw last week and the NO rush D is formidable so I'll probably go with Williams and Mendenhall.

By the way, T.O. hits the pine this week!

Thanks for the input, guys.

WHO WOULD YOU START?

Eli Manning (ARI) or Aaron Rodgers (@CLE)

Clinton Portis (PHI) or Steve Slaton (SF)

Rashard Mendenhall (MIN) or Brandon Jacobs (ARI)


Eli

Clinton

Brandon

I dont think that RVR II and I see these the same way!

Rodgers, Slaton and Brandon. for me.......

And yeah, Steve Smith has been killing me thanks to the Jake (new 4 year contract) Delhome.   But I would start him this week as after his pouty "I guess the team does not see me as a weapon" cry, they will find ways to get him the ball.

I sure hope you started Rogers and Slaton like I said to............................

I'm actually more satisfied with the Vikings' play this week than I am with their play last week, in spite of the fact that we lost.  Our backup CBs really stepped up in holding Big Ben to 175 yards.  I wasn't expecting that.

We got a few bad breaks and made some mistakes in bad places.  But the way we played gives me confidence that we can beat the Packers at Lambeau - and not just an eke-out win, either, but a sound thrashing.  Bottom line: if Taylor catches that ball, we're still 7-0.  We've been pretty good with turnovers for most of the year - this week was an aberration, I think.

We had to lose at some point - I don't see any 16-0 teams.  Maybe some 15-1 or 14-2 teams, but not 16-0.

Pittsburgh is better on defense and offense than Green Bay, and their fans are even louder and more enthusiastic (perhaps the only ones in the league who are), so I don't think we'll do anything other than play better next week.  If the Vikings go 7-1 into the bye week, the division is theirs.

Hey, RVR II, time to update the title of this thread, I mean, the baseball thread is kept up!

Looks like Larry Johnson must have a guaranteed contract!



Chiefs RB Johnson calls out coach on Twitter
Updated: October 26, 2009, 3:39 PM EDT 132 comments
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has belittled his rookie head coach on what appears to be his Twitter account, saying Todd Haley has "nuthn" when it comes to NFL-quality credentials.

The remarks were posted several hours after the Chiefs (1-6) were routed at home 37-7 by San Diego on Sunday.

One tweet read: "My father got more creditentials than most of these pro coaches." That is followed by: "My father played for the coach from "rememeber the titans". Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn."

Haley did not play high school or college football. He attended college on a golf scholarship. He was hired by first-year general manager Scott Pioli to replace the fired Herm Edwards.

Johnson refused to speak with reporters Monday. Haley's regular news conference was scheduled for later in the afternoon.

A spokesman for the Chiefs said Monday it was not certain if the tweets, posted under the alias of "Toonicon" were posted by Johnson. The Kansas City Star reported, however, that Johnson had said previously that the online alias is his and the account includes a link to Johnson's personal Web site.

The final post read: "Make me regret it. Lmao. U don't stop my checks. Lmao. So 'tweet' away."

The tweets drew responses, including one that referred to a nightclub incident in which Johnson was accused of spitting in someone's face. Johnson's response include a three-letter homophobic slur.

Johnson, a two-time Pro Bowler, is no stranger to controversy. Last year, he was benched for three games by head coach Herm Edwards for unspecified violation of team rules. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the fourth game for violating the league's player conduct policy in connection with incidents involving two women in bars.

He was then 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 earlier this year suspended the sentence and said he would remove the guilty plea from the public record if Johnson finished the probation period without further incidents.

Johnson was one of the best running backs in the NFL in 2005 and '06, rushing for more than 1,700 yards in each season. In 2006, he set an NFL record with 410 carries, but his production fell to 559 yards the following season after sitting out training camp in a contract dispute.

Running behind a poor offensive line, he has not done well this season, averaging only 2.7 yards per carry on 132 rushes.

Ha, a follow up........... I guess he is trying to be suspended.

LJ drama continues with locker-room scene
By KENT BABB
The Kansas City Star

TODD FEEBACK
Chiefs running back Larry Johnson, less than 24 hours after taking on coach Todd Haley on his Twitter profile, maintained an edge Monday when approached by reporters in the team's locker room.
 
Hours after Kansas Citys 37-7 loss to San Diego on Sunday, Johnson tweeted several controversial remarks directed toward Haley and the coach's lack of football experience. Haley, who is in his first season as a head coach at any level, never played football in high school, college or the pros.

A message posted on Johnson's profile, whose username Sunday about 7 p.m. stated: "My father played for the coach from 'rememeber the titans'. Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn."

Johnson continued the rant, and, in later responses directed toward Johnsons Twitter followers, contained inflammatory remarks about gays. In a reference to someones profile picture, Johnson called it a "fag pic" and called the person a "Christopher street boy," a reference to a predominantly homosexual section in New Yorks Greenwich Village. Johnson's Twitter profile was taken private and some posts were deleted.

On Monday in the Chiefs locker room, Johnson used another homosexual slur after saying he wouldnt speak to reporters.

Johnson, sitting next to second-year running back Jamaal Charles, told reporters that "I'm not talking till Thursday," his usual day of speaking with reporters.

Then Johnson turned away and whispered.

"Get your faggot ass out of here," he said.

Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, spoke briefly to The Star on Monday but said his flight had just landed and couldn't talk. Subsequent calls werent immediately returned. Schaffer acknowledged on Sunday night that Johnson's tweets were his own but said the running back intended to compliment his father, Larry Johnson Sr., is the defensive line coach at Penn State and not disparage Haley.

Johnson had expressed frustration earlier Sunday, shortly after the Chiefs' loss at Arrowhead Stadium.

"This is what this organization has been doing since I've been here," Johnson said. "This is my third head coach in seven years I've been here. It seems like this is what we keep doing: going back to the drawing board. We bring in new coaches, new organization, new schemes, new mentality, new attitude."

The Chiefs are 1-6 and have a bye this weekend.

Lingerie football league kicks off

Posted: 1:35 AM, October 29, 2009

If you’re interested in girl-on-girl action — and sports — there’s a new league that’s just the ticket. The Lingerie Football League offers players who could be the offspring of an NFL-Victoria’s Secret marriage. And while two New York and Philadelphia teams are tangling in some other sport, the New York Majesty and the Philadelphia Passion are squaring off tomorrow night in their first gridiron game — and it promises to show more than just pigskin.

The 10-team league is no dainty touch-football played by women afraid to break a nail. (There’s sure to be plenty of touching, though.) This is a full-body tackle sport, and the team, buffed and bruised from weeks of practice, plays like it has something to prove.

“We’re going to war here,” says Majesty quarterback Krystal Gray, a 24-year-old from Buffalo. “Football is such a fast game that you don’t have time to think about what kind of uniform you are wearing. If you are distracted for even a split second, you can lose the ball.”

Since the women do need to run, catch and tackle, their uniforms are more akin to what Olympic volleyball players might wear than the lace teddy of a true seductress. Still, volleyball players don’t usually wear garter belts around their thighs or chokers around their necks. LFL players do.

Majesty head coach Henry Racich has been working overtime to get his first lingerie-clad football team ready for their premier game. He tells us that he had the entire team move into his house for a week, where he could oversee three practice sessions a day, treating them like any men’s team he would coach.

When Racich’s colleagues heard about his new coaching job, he was slammed with applications for assistants and even water boys. But after just one practice session with the Majesty players, he says they "transformed from the beautiful models they are, into X’s and O’s in a playbook, just like any other team."

Still, there are some differences.

"It’s sometimes frustrating because they are women, and they get at it with each other over the strangest of things," he says. "I coach a lot a lot of football, a lot of men’s teams, and I hear arguments here that I would just never hear on any other field."

Game tickets can be purchased at lflus.com, though local fans will need serious dedication (and a car) to catch Majesty home games at the Sovereign Center in Reading, Pa. — a nearly three-hour drive from Manhattan. The players promise their games will be worth the commute.

“I used to be a cheerleader, cheering for other teams,” says Majesty player Stephanie Gayle, 20. “Now I’m the one playing — and cheering for myself.”

Because the guy who wrote it asked Joe Robbie (the original owner) to buy exclusive rights or he'd start shopping it around and Robbie wouldn't.

So, Robbie stopped using it for awhile and commissioned a song but it sucked....the fans kept using this one.

Meantime, because the Dolphins weren't using it the Oilers took it but also wouldn't buy exclusive rights....

And then, I guess since the guy found himself getting paid by two teams he wasn't fighting it.

Oh crap. You're right. Earlier today, the coach said he's gonna share carries with Moats. This isn't good. Makes my decision a tad easier though. Thanks for the head's up, Bob!

I'd feel fine about starting Hester if he didn't have ankle issues but he practiced full-out on Friday. What the hell, I'll start him against that porous Arizona pass D and hope he holds up.

Star NFL Running Back Released After Gay Slurs, Comments on Coach

Monday, November 09, 2009

 AP

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was suspended last month after criticizing team officials and posting two homosexual slurs online.

KANSAS CITY, Mo.  —  Larry Johnson's 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' 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.
I wonder if he was referring to guys on Harleys (latest South Park episode reference) :D

Smith/Harvin is pretty much a toss-up but I have a feeling Peterson will run wild and the MIN/DET game will be so out-of-hand early that MIN won't be throwing it a whole lot.

Smith is actually catching touchdowns today, so I am GLAD I had a last second change of heart and benched harvin and put smith back in.   Panthers are winning, so RVR II is having a good early Thanksgiving dinner.

25 to 23 Dolphins over the Bucs....  Jeez that was a close one.   :speechless:

EDIT - More first downs, 199 yds rushing to 122 for the Bucs, fewer fumbles, a third of the penalties....and they still let them get within 2 points of a tie....

It's a win but...wow.

Smith is actually catching touchdowns today, so I am GLAD I had a last second change of heart and benched harvin and put smith back in. 

I think Benson left the game with an injury, so hopefully it is only a first half thing.


I really should have gone with my first instinct and benched Benson.  :grr: "Unspecified hip injury"...that's not gonna be good for anybody.

Nice game for Smith. Lord knows he was due!

So the Bills fired Coach Dick Jauron.. :o
(The fans Demanded this..)

Quote
The Buffalo Bills' season has apparently hit a new low.

Head coach Dick Jauron was fired Tuesday with the Bills off to a 3-6 start and struggling to score points on offense.

At this point, the staff has not yet been told who will hold the post of interim coach, though the odds-on favorite is believed to be defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.

Bills owner Ralph Wilson says it was "a difficult decision," but one he felt he needed to make in the "best interest of our team."

The Bills are averaging just over 15 points per game on an offense that acquired Terrell Owen this season but remains unsettled at quarterback. The defense is riddled with injuries, and has allowed an NFL-worst 173 yards rushing a game.

The move comes two days after Buffalo returned from a bye week and were beaten 41-17 by the Tennessee Titans. Jauron leaves with a 24-33 record over three-plus seasons.

"I really don't have anything to say," was all Jauron would say when reached on his cell phone by The Associated Press.

The Bills play at Jacksonville on Sunday.

Buffalo, which has not made the playoffs since 1999, has now gone through four coaches since the end of the 2000 season, when Wade Phillips was dismissed. Gregg Williams was not rehired after his three-year contract expired, while Mike Mularkey abruptly resigned after a front-office shakeup following the 2005 season.

Jauron was hired by general manager Marv Levy, who took over the post following Tom Donahoe's dismissal. Jauron has been on the hotseat ever since last season, after he led the Bills to their third consecutive 7-9 finish.

Expressing a need for continuity, Wilson elected to retain Jauron. The Hall of Fame owner, however, noted that he was aware of Bills fans' dissatisfaction with the team, and warned that he wasn't going to be "complacent" in seeking improvements, particularly on offense.

Those improvements haven't come even after the team made a big splash in free agency by signing Owens to a one-year $6.5 million contract in March, days after the receiver was released by Dallas.

Owens hasn't provided a spark to an offense that has been undone by a young and inexperienced offensive line and poor play at quarterback, whether it's starter Trent Edwards or backup Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Bills haven't generated 300 yards offense in eight of nine games this season, including their past seven. They also haven't had a quarterback generate 200 yards passing since Edwards had 230 yards in a 33-20 win over Tampa Bay in Week 2.

Well, sounds like a 'local guy' (from Gastonia, NC - west of Charlotte) has been brought in as Interim head coach..

Also, there's a rumor going around that the Bills are looking at possibly acquiring Michael Vick  for a possible starting QB job for next season.. :-\

Death of NFL Star's Mother Ruled Suicide

Friday, November 20, 2009

GRANBY, Colo.  —  The death of the mother of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been ruled a suicide.

Mina Brees, an attorney from Austin, Texas, died Aug. 7 while visiting Colorado. This week, Grand County coroner Brenda Bock concluded that she died of a prescription drug overdose and ruled the death a suicide.

Bock said Brees died while staying at the home of a friend in Granby near Rocky Mountain National Park.

It took longer than three months for a cause of death to be reached but Bock said that's typical for cases involving toxicology tests.

Relations between Drew Brees and his mother were strained at times and the quarterback asked her to stop using his picture in TV commercials touting her candidacy for a Texas appeals court in 2006.

Bills owner: We will revamp the 'whole operation'

Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson is prepared to revamp his entire football operation after the season and warned that no position is safe.

"I tell you, we have a lot of work to do," Wilson told The Associated Press on Thursday in his first interview since firing coach Dick Jauron this week. "We've got to revamp and take a look at the whole operation and that's what we're going to do."

When asked if that includes the possibility of hiring a general manager with a football background, Wilson reiterated that every position will be reviewed.

The Bills (3-6) play at Jacksonville on Sunday and are in jeopardy of missing the playoffs for a 10th straight year. Jauron was dismissed Tuesday and replaced by defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, who will serve as interim coach the rest of the season.

Though Fewell is a candidate for next season, Wilson said he's open to making a lucrative offer to land a high-profile coach.

"It's not about money, it's about winning," Wilson said by phone from his home in suburban Detroit. "If it was about money, we wouldn't have brought in and paid for somebody we know was a great player."

Wilson was referring to the signing of receiver Terrell Owens to a one-year $6.5 million contract in March after he was cut by Dallas.

"Anybody that says I'm cheap is looking down the wrong side of the street," Wilson said.

Wilson discounted reports that the team is interested in interviewing Mike Shanahan, the former Denver Broncos coach.

"I don't know anything about him," he said.

Later in the day, the Bills issued a statement downplaying speculation regarding their coaching search, saying the team is focused on the final seven games of the season and "the efforts of coach Fewell, the coaching staff and our players."

"We understand there will be much speculation regarding the head-coaching position, but we will not comment during the process until a new head coach has been announced."

After his stint in Notre Dame?! :speechless:

Yeah, you're right. Perhaps they can lure Mike Martz away from Fresno State!  :D

Gruden is having a lot of fun on MNF but I do get the feeling he just wants to run out of the booth down to the field and grab a headset. I could possibly see the Cowher thing happening; he always left that door open. Ditka?!? C'mon.

Did Shanahan respond when the Bills contacted him?

Yeah, Ditka's done, but he had his days :P
Everything is all hear-say.. The Bills higher ups are being real quiet on Shanahan right now hence Ralph Wilson's smart remark "I don't know anything about him."

I heard some wild rumor that Cower is/was interested in coming to the Panthers sometime back and if the Panthers keep their losing ways, we'll see if there's any truth to that.. :-\

NFL Network accidentally airs McDaniels' profanity
Associated Press

Updated: November 27, 2009, 2:36 AM EST

DENVER (AP) - The NFL Network accidentally aired a vulgarity yelled by Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels as he chastised his players on the sideline of their Thanksgiving night game against the New York Giants.

Coming out of a commercial break following a series of false starts near the goal line that resulted in Denver settling for a field goal, the NFL Network showed a clip of McDaniels, who yelled at his players: "All we're trying to do is win a (expletive) game!"

The vulgarity was clearly audible to viewers, and announcer Bob Papa immediately apologized to viewers.

"We want to apologize for that audio as we went to the last break that got out over the air. We do send our sincerest apologizes for the Josh McDaniels audio that got out there," Papa told viewers.

In an interview with The Associated Press and the Denver Post, Eric Weinberger, executive producer of the NFL Network, apologized to viewers and to McDaniels for the "terrible mistake."

He said no one in the production trucks heard the profanity.

"No one heard it as it was said. It would never have been aired," Weinberger said. "It was at the end of a clip, so we missed it."

He said he heard the profanity at the same time everyone else did.

His reaction?

"I probably said the same thing" as McDaniels did, Weinberger acknowledged.

"We're not in this business to do that," Weinberger said. "We're in this business to show sports and to show the most emotion that we can show. And the guy is an incredibly emotional, passionate guy."

McDaniels wasn't miked. The audio was picked up by the NFL Network's cameras.

"It's amazing how aggressive the production is with microphones not even on the guys. We don't have wires on the guys," Weinberger said. "You're picking up ambient sound. If you're watching the game, you're hearing Kyle Orton calling audibles as the game's going on. He's not miked. It's the microphones that are on the sides that are picking up ambient sound."

That was what was so hypocritical about "Nipple Gate" really...

For YEARS you could hear all sorts of choice language during live sporting events - either from the field or from the stands.  In Miami, there was a group of fans who when they didn't like the Ref's call would chant, "Bullshit, bullshit, bull - fucking - shit!".  The on field mics picked that up all the time.  You even heard that on the radio broadcasts.

And when Marino was with the Dolphins and they went three and out, the camera would always have a close up on him as he walked off the field...and you knew exactly what he was saying.  The commentators used to say, "Well, he's upset and rightly so..."

What a fucking duchebag Berman is.    All he does is read script and make his stupid noises and catch phrases.   Man, I would love for him to yell at me so I could punch him in his idiot face.

I heard the Denver coach cussing too and my mom looked at me and said, "did he just say what I thought he said?" and then started laughing.   My dad played it back 3 or 4 times and kept laughing.

Quote
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith has sore ribs and has been added to the injury list as questionable for Sunday's game at the New York Jets.


It was unclear when Smith was injured. He took a knee to the back in a victory over Atlanta on Nov. 15, but hadn't missed any practice time since.

Smith leads Carolina with 45 catches for 599 yards and four touchdowns.

Panthers reserve defensive end Charles Johnson didn't make the trip Saturday and will miss his second straight game with a strained chest muscle.

Programmers at the Atlanta CBS affiliate should only get a painful anal cyst....or the NFL...or who ever decides these things.....

Falcons are on Fox at 1pm.   So our CBS is going to show NFL Today at noon and then instead of some other game at 1pm they're going to have infomercials until the 4pm game!   With all the other games they could be showing instead...

But then, I guess when you have a team like the Falcons you have to force people to watch only them if you want football...

Okay, so I head into tonight's MNF game with a 85-42 point lead.   My opponent only has Drew Brees left and I just need to avoid a 5 touchdown performance...... and Drew has 4 heading into the fourth quarter :gouge:
Yeah.. Stick a fork in the Pats cause they're (dynasty's) done 8)

WHO DAT?! :D

Of both 11-0 teams, the Saints seem much more dominant and have the best success of quite possibly going undefeated this season..
Though both teams don't have much of a threat to face the rest of the regular season IMO.. :-\

RVR II will be happy.
Yes.. I.. Am.. :o 
Quote
Those who know former Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher say he is gearing up to return as an NFL coach next season. Cowher is mentally preparing himself and contemplating how he would structure his organization.

With a return on the horizon, many around the league believe the most logical landing spot by far is the Carolina Panthers, where speculation is mounting that Panthers coach John Fox is on the endangered list. Of course, Fox has been there before and always has done what he could to keep his job. But this time, the Panthers have a newly hired president, Danny Morrison, who has no ties or connections to anyone in the organization other than Jerry Richardson.

A source connected to the Panthers source said he expects the team to pursue Cowher, who lives in North Carolina and has been waiting for the ideal opportunity to return to coaching. Plus, consider these notable coincidences: Cowher has a daughter who is a freshman at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C., where the Panthers hold training camp. Morrison also graduated from Wofford, where he later became the director of athletics and the school's senior vice president. Cowher continues to be on Carolina's radar, and recent signs only reinforce the notion. 
And besides, he resides in Raleigh, NC (just a couple hour drive to the north east of Charlotte) so it would be Perfect for him 8)

If That should become a reality, I'll (Panthers fans will) be Very Stoked about the future possibilities

EDIT: If he does happen to come to town, I'd like to see Cower keep Fox on as maybe a defensive coach or coordinator, like back in the 90's Steeler days :o

Still early in the first quarter, and I am already done watching the Rams game.   Two horrible passes by Cutler that our DBs REFUSE to look at and face guard the receivers who make the catches.    Boller is a horrible QB and he keeps missing wide open guys.

Time to watch better games and read about the 17-0 loss later....

Jackson had his usual 100+ yard game, so you should be happy.

Sounds like a bad situation all around.......



Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry died early Thursday morning, according to a report on the Charlotte Observer Web site.

Police said Henry, who suffered severe injuries when he "came out" of the back of a pickup truck during a domestic dispute in northern Charlotte, died at 6:36 a.m. at Carolinas Medical Center.

A cause of death has not been released.

On Wednesday, Henry was found in the road about eight miles north of downtown Charlotte "apparently suffering life-threatening injuries," according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Henry was transported to Carolinas Medical Center, the local trauma unit.

Police said a dispute began at a home just before noon and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his unidentified fiancee was driving away from the residence.

"The domestic situation continued between the operator and Mr. Henry," the police said in a statement. "At some point while she was driving, Mr. Henry came out of the back of the vehicle."

Fey wouldn't name the woman and said no charges would be filed on Wednesday.

Henry was found on a residential street about a half mile away from the home when police were called to the scene after a medic report that a man was down.

A woman who identified herself as the fiancee's mother but declined to give her name told the Charlotte Observer that Henry and his fiancee had been staying at her house while he was on injured reserve and they were making plans for their wedding.

She said she wasn't home at the time of the dispute and wasn't sure exactly what happened, but she said her daughter is at Henry's bedside at the hospital.

Henry was engaged to Loleini Tonga, and the couple has been raising three children.

Neighbor Karen Clanton said the Tonga family lives in the house where the police say the incident began, adding that she didn't witness it and that "they're nice folks."

Henry broke his left forearm during a win over Baltimore on Nov. 8, had surgery and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Charlotte is home to his fiancee's parents, the Bengals said.

Brown said Rusty Guy, the Bengals' director of security, will travel to Charlotte this morning to assist Henry's family.

Henry was in the final year of his contract with the Bengals, who let him go after his fifth arrest following the 2007 season. Owner Mike Brown then brought him back a few months later, signing him to a two-year deal. Henry had stayed out of trouble since his return, turning into a feel-good story that got fans rooting for him.

“Chris is Chris. He’s personable with his guys, but quiet,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said on the Bengals' Web site Wednesday. “You could tell he missed being out there with us. He was supportive. He’s a big part of what we are. I really admire how he carries himself, how he's changed his life, and how he's made his career his passion. That’s what this team has done. He's one of the guys that has helped give this team that attitude. We’re worried about him and praying for him.”

In an interview with The Cincinnati Enquirer in October, Henry credited his fiancee for helping him straighten out his life, saying, "She's been a big help. She's been right here with me and going through things and helping out on my side. We have the kids, and she has my back with everything I've needed."

From the start, his career has been sidetracked by off-the-field problems.

Henry repeatedly got in trouble at West Virginia, where former Mountaineers coach Rich Rodriguez told him that he was an embarrassment to himself and the program.

Most teams shied away from Henry in the 2005 draft. Cincinnati was the only one that brought him in for a visit, and warned him that he had to stay out of trouble if he was going to make it in the NFL. Then, the Bengals drafted him in the third round.

His ability to run past defenders made him an integral part of the Bengals' run to the playoffs in 2005. He caught Carson Palmer's only pass in a playoff loss to Pittsburgh — both of them were hurt on the play.

His rookie season also marked the beginning of his problems in the NFL. He was arrested for marijuana possession in December 2005, and again on a weapons charge a month later in Florida. He was arrested four times in all, drawing repeated suspensions - two games in 2006, the first half of the 2007 season — for violating the league's conduct policy.

When he was arrested for a fifth time after the 2007 season, the Bengals released Henry. Over the objection of coach Marvin Lewis, Brown changed his mind and gave Henry another chance, offering a two-year contract before the 2008 season began.

After serving a four-game suspension to start the 2008 season, he returned and caught 19 passes in the last 12 games, becoming an afterthought in the offense. He spent the offseason getting in shape and working out so he could become a top receiver again. He impressed coaches and teammates with his newfound determination to resurrect his career.

Before the start of the season, he got a tattoo that said "Blessed" below his left ear, a reminder that he's gotten plenty of extra chances.

"I don't live the way I did in the past," Henry said, in an interview with The Associated Press during training camp. "I kind of plan my days out and take it one day at a time and stay away from the wrong people. I'm not partying anymore. I'm just focused on football right now and my family. I don't associate with the same people. I've completely changed everything."

A thigh injury limited him early in the season. He had 12 catches for 236 yards and a pair of touchdowns before he broke his arm.

Pepsi Ditches Super Bowl Ads for Social Networking Campaign

By MARK FIGHTMASTER
Posted 2:00 PM 12/18/09

While watching the Super Bowl this upcoming February, some viewers may notice a conspicuous absence: PepsiCo (PEP), which has advertised during the past 23 Super Bowl shows, won't be running any Pepsi commercials, according to The Wall Street Journal. Before you brush this off as a non-event, let me remind you of some of the Pepsi commercials of Super Bowl past. The beverage maker has long paraded a series of A-listers to entertain us between plays. Puff Daddy (P Diddy, whatever you call him), Jackie Chan, Cindy Crawford (I will never forget that ad), and Ozzy Osbourne.

So where will all of those unused Pepsi ad dollars go? According to Frank Cooper, senior vice president of PepsiCo Americas Beverages, the company plans to focus its advertising strategy on a "marketing platform" rather than blitzing us with commercials during a single event. Pepsi says it is launching the "Pepsi Refresh Project," a collaboration between PepsiCo and a non-profit/charitable organization that awards grant money to community projects that are chosen by consumers.

Wow....that Britney Spears ad completely forgotten?   :D

You know, if Daniel Snyder were half the George Steinbrenner-wannabe he's made out to be, he would have fired Jim Zorn in the locker room at halftime.  Wimp.

Darn it, I got kinda attached to Zorn when he was quarterback of the expansion Seahawks, doing the best he could with the bad hand he was dealt (except for Largent).  Too bad he couldn't cope similarly as a head coach, but man, Zorn is in over his head.

A shame ... except that it keeps the Giants on the respirator another week.

Delhomme put on season-ending IR

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers placed quarterback Jake Delhomme on injured reserve Thursday with a broken finger on his throwing hand, ending his worst season as a pro and raising questions about his future with the franchise.

Delhomme said he broke the knuckle on his middle finger in a loss to the New York Jets on Nov. 29. He hasn't played or practiced since.

Matt Moore has started the past three games and threw for a career-high 299 yards and three touchdowns in last Sunday's upset win over Minnesota.


The Panthers (6-8) promoted quarterback Hunter Cantwell from the practice squad to take Delhomme's roster spot. A.J. Feeley is No. 2 on the depth chart.

"We thought he might be further along as far as his finger," coach John Fox said. "We kind of looked at it this week as far as gripping the ball, throwing the ball and it wasn't up to speed. We felt we needed to get another quarterback up. Hunter has been with us all year."

Despite committing six turnovers in Carolina's ugly playoff loss to Arizona in January, the Panthers gave the 34-year-old Delhomme a lucrative contract extension in the offseason. Although it's a five-year deal, it's structured to be a three-year contract worth more than $25 million, with nearly $13 million guaranteed.

Delhomme then committed five more turnovers in a blowout loss to Philadelphia in the season opener, and had 18 interceptions and only eight touchdown passes in 11 games before the injury. Struggling with his accuracy, Delhomme completed only 55.5 percent of his passes.

"The '09 year, starting in January with the playoff game, for whatever reason it just hasn't been good football-wise for me," Delhomme said. "Certainly you want to finish, you want to get back out and play, but some things are just not meant to be."

While Delhomme is 58-40 as a starter with Carolina and led the Panthers to the Super Bowl after the 2003 season, his year of bad play has led to calls for a new QB.

If the salary cap remains in effect next season, the Panthers may have no choice but to bring him back because of his contract. But if negotiations stall on a new collective bargaining agreement and there is no cap, the Panthers could more easily jettison Delhomme.


Fox didn't clear up the issue Thursday.

"I'm sure there's going to be a lot of talk, there usually is," Fox said. "But with us, all of our focus is on the New York Giants. After that week, we'll finish up with the New Orleans Saints. And we evaluate everything after that. That would be true of our whole football team."

Delhomme acknowledged the Panthers haven't told him if they'll bring him back.

"There is a lot a time before they have to worry about making decisions and things of that nature," Delhomme said.

Receiver Steve Smith, Delhomme's top receiver, sidestepped questions about the quarterback's future on Thursday.

"I'm nobody to answer a question like that," Smith said. "That's playing somebody that I'm not."

Moore was limited in practice on Thursday with a sore shoulder but is expected to start Sunday against the Giants. Cantwell went undrafted out of Louisville and has spent the season on the practice squad after being cut before the start of the regular season.

The Panthers don't hold a first-round pick next year, which could also factor in on whether Delhomme is Carolina's quarterback in 2010.

But Delhomme made it clear he wants to be back.

"A hundred percent, yes," Delhomme said. "There is nothing inside of me that says let's try to start over someplace. Absolutely not. Not even remotely close."

Meanwhile, the Panthers were again without running backs DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Tyrell Sutton (calf) in practice Thursday. Running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles' tendon) practiced after sitting out Wednesday. Cornerback Richard Marshall (ankle) was limited.

The Panthers added running back Devin Moore to take Cantwell's spot on the practice squad.

"Despite committing six turnovers in Carolina's ugly playoff loss to Arizona in January, the Panthers gave the 34-year-old Delhomme a lucrative contract extension in the offseason. Although it's a five-year deal, it's structured to be a three-year contract worth more than $25 million, with nearly $13 million guaranteed."

And THIS is why the Panthers have at least one more year of Jake!

And the MNF "trick" FG was something that even a 5 year old would not have tried on Madden football.

Sounds like there's a good chance Cowher will be coming back next year.

Quote
After turning down chances to return to the NFL in previous offseason, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher is primed to get back in the game this offseason.

Those who know Cowher firmly believe that he plans to coach in 2010, according to two league sources. He is laying the groundwork, making calls to piece together a coaching staff and acting like a man who will be patrolling the sidelines once again next season.

Many around the league have expected Cowher's name to surface in connection to the Carolina job, and it might. But others also believe that a more likely landing spot might be the Panthers' division-rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Yeah. It kinda sucks for Indy fans to lose the perfect season vibe but this was the right decision IMO. It probably stings a little more given they gave it up to the Jets but they already had a first round bye and home field wrapped up before kickoff. There's no reason to drop back Manning ten or more times under heavy pressure in search of a comeback win. The Colts have their eyes on the prize.

Panthers coach Fox, manager Hurney expected to stay put for 2010

CHARLOTTE -- While the speculation has been going on for months, there was never any firm word that the Carolina Panthers were going to make any leadership changes this offseason.

The Charlotte Observer reported Monday afternoon, citing an anonymous source, that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was not planning to fire either coach John Fox or general manager Marty Hurney.

Both are under contract through 2010, and Hurney was never in danger of being let go, according to multiple sources.

   
 
 Fox’s future was in a bit of doubt, but a strong bounce-back late this season coupled with a solid overall record has apparently earned him another year. He’s 70-57 in the regular season here, and his .551 winning percentage is eighth-best in the league among coaches with at least 50 games. Since 2002, only eight teams in the league have more wins.

Fox is scheduled to make $6.5 million next year, the last season of the extension he signed in 2006. Like the head coach, all the Panthers assistants are under contract through 2010.

Given the current labor unrest between the league and the players union — 2010 is the last year with guaranteed football — owners league-wide are hesitant to extend contracts for any time beyond the portion which they know they’ll have revenue.

A Panthers team spokesman said they’d be making no official comment, and that Richardson wouldn’t be available until after the season.

My memories of that game was idiotic Mike Martz having the ball at the 15 yard line, with 50 seconds left and INTENTIONALLY letting the clock wind down to kick a tying FG (without running a play).   I remember our kicker coming up a yard short on a 50 yard FG attempt in overtime.   I remember Jason Sehorn moving slower than me......

Yeah, they're not limping in by any stretch. Although Green Bay giving it up to Pittsburgh was a joke. Also, I think the Chargers would dispense with both of those teams rather easily.

Title: Re: The 2009 NFL Season of Disarray..
Post by: TeamRAD on December 30, 2009, 02:11:54 PM

Green Bay giving it up to Pittsburgh a joke? Well, it was entertaining, but both teams went bananas offensively b/c of the familiarity w/ each others 3/4 defensive schemes (Capers/LeBeau, no doubt). It wasn't a coincidence, and they were bothTop-10 defenses overall prior to that showdown, too (I believe we were #2 and they were #7 overall). So a joke, nah, more so an anomaly.

The Cardinals pose a real threat b/c our defensive weakness is in our secondary since Harris went out, and no one can stop Fitzgerald. Woodson may slow him down, but to shut him down, it would be so awesome but no way. As for Boldin, it's going to be more than likely chaos for Tramon, and I don't want to think what could possibly happen to Bush. They're in all likelihood going to be our playoff matchup, and it could possibly become wild. Here's hoping our pass rush can disrupt, big-time.

Check it out, Aaron Rodgers for "NFL Player of the Next Decade"...

A "joke" is probably a bit harsh, but they just couldn't hold a lead in that game...and they had a few of them. As for entertaining, it was definitely one of the most exciting games of the season. You are right in being concerned about the secondary. Big Ben threw for what, 500+ yards? If the Cardinals play the Packers, I think it will come down to which Warner decides to show up, the deadly accurate passing machine or the guy who makes really bad decisions.

Either way, I didn't mean to slam your Packers. Best of luck.  :)

Must be due to "Cowher Power"

Even before Buddy Nix was named the Buffalo Bills' general manager, league sources say there was a "stealth meeting" with Bill Cowher last week.


It is believed that owner Ralph Wilson Jr. joined team president Russ Brandon to gauge Cowher's potential interest to return to coaching.


The Bills, who also met with Mike Shanahan after Dick Jauron was fired, believe talks with Cowher were very productive, the sources added, but gave no indication whether Cowher will take their head-coaching position if it is offered.


Cowher reiterated on CBS' The NFL Today that he is "not going to talk about any jobs during the regular season."


A Bills spokesman did not respond to voice and text messages regarding the Cowher meeting.


Nix will interview interim coach Perry Fewell on Monday, as well as meet with other Buffalo assistant coaches.

So i guess the Jets are in the playoffs and the Texans are out.. :(

Uh, yes, that's right.  And has anyone else ever seen a team get ushered into the playoffs like the Jets just were?  The Colts lie down and roll over in the second half last week, saving their stars for the playoffs.  Then the Bengals -- I didn't see much of this game, but by the score I have to assume they were going through the motions, content with not trying to raise their seed one place.  Without those two wins, the Jets are on the outside looking in.  There was already concern about teams heading into the playoffs not giving their all and producing substandard games.  This can only redouble those worries:  the Jets won a playoff berth by, basically, a quirk of the schedule.

Of course, it ends up being a trap for Gang Green.  From what I've heard (not fully confirmed), they'll be playing the Bengals again next weekend in the wild card round.  Cincinnati basically sat back, showing them nothing while knowing the Jets had to go all-out, throw the playbook at the Bengals, to insure that they got to play another week.  Cincinnati now has a massive tactical advantage, having seen most of what the Jets can do while having held much of their own playbook back.

Something is not quite right in the NFL.

Okay, several things are not quite right in the NFL.  This is one of them.

Without Welker, I think the Pats are done. He is so crucial to that offense. Baltimore will blanket Moss.

Yeah. Could be the Saints. Or perhaps the Vikings if Favre can keep playing until he's 45!

Pittsburgh could be considered a dynasty if they win one or two more in the next four years. Of course, there's always the Colts, but they do have to actually get to and win the big game more than once!

The local paper is reporting that Fox may Not be 100% onboard with the Panthers.. :o

Quote
“I have a year left on my contract. I haven't had any postseason conversations yet, and I have an agent who handles those things. I'd like to get through this day, and we'll see where it goes after that.”

Fox is expected to meet with Richardson to discuss his future, but it might not be for a week or more. The Panthers are in no particular rush, because they do have him under contract for another year (at $6.5 million), along with the rest of the coaching staff. At the same time, Fox did little to dispel the rumors that he's looking elsewhere.

The Herald reported Sunday that multiple team sources felt Fox was positioning himself for a move elsewhere. No one said anything Sunday to change that perception, with another team source saying he thought Fox's departure was still very much expected.

But that part of it will have to wait, as Fox would naturally be hesitant to ask out until he sees which jobs were available. Until then, he and the Panthers will engage in an elaborate game of poker, with neither side wanting to show cards too soon.

Glazer: Bills fire entire coaching staff

Updated Jan 4, 2010 8:43 PM EDT
The Buffalo Bills have commenced "Operation Cleaning House."

On Monday the Bills fired their entire coaching staff -- including interim head coach Perry Fewell. Fewell, however, is expected to officially interview Monday for the Bills' permanent head-coaching position.


The Bills released an awkwardly worded statement, saying members of the team's current coaching staff have been informed that their obligations for this season have been completed, and they now "have the opportunity to seek positions elsewhere." The release said their status will then be determined by the Bills' next head coach.

The team has already met with former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher and believes that his interest in the opening is genuine.

Buffalo is also making plans to interview several current assistant coaches to fill their head-coaching void. That list includes Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm and Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Other possibilities include Jets offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer and Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.

Days after firing head coach Dick Jauron in November, Bills owner Ralph Wilson had said no job was safe as he was preparing to revamp his entire front office once the season ended.

The overhaul already began last week, when national scout Buddy Nix was promoted to general manager, filling a spot that had been filled by the team's chief operating officer Russ Brandon, who had no football background.

The Bills closed their 50th season by missing the playoffs for a 10th straight year, and capping a decade in which they enjoyed only one winning season -- a 9-7 finish in 2004.

Fewell, the team's defensive coordinator, finished with a 3-4 record as the interim coach.

Except for highly respected special teams coordinator Bobby April, most of the Bills assistants, including Fewell, had been hired by Jauron.

News of the dismissals came a few hours after Fewell addressed his players in a final team meeting. Players were only made available to the media before the meeting, and discussed the uncertainty regarding the team as they cleaned out their lockers.

"I'm anxious to see what happens. I know coach Perry did a great job with us," linebacker Paul Posluszny said. "We all want to know what the situation is, who the head coach will be, what type of defense we're going to run. There's a lot of questions, but you have to stay patient."

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was frustrated after finishing another losing season, but was hopeful about the team's future.

"We come back here, it'll all be new. It'll be a fresh start," Williams said.

The new coach will have several personnel decisions to make, starting at quarterback.

Trent Edwards, who opened the season as starter, was benched after Jauron was fired. Ryan Fitzpatrick took over and failed to spark a sputtering offense, though he did go 5-4 in games he had a majority of playing time.

Defensive end Aaron Schobel is contemplating retirement after completing his ninth year in Buffalo.

Then there's receiver Terrell Owens, who becomes a free agent after completing a one-year, $6.5 million contract he signed with the Bills in March, days after being released by Dallas.

Owens, on Monday, reiterated that he hasn't ruled out returning to Buffalo, but only with the right coach, at the right price, and if the Bills are interested.

"I think anything is possible, and I think for myself, just be patient, wait things out and weigh my options," he said.

Though disappointed in the Bills' losing season, Owens expressed no regrets about signing with Buffalo.

"I took a chance on the opportunity that the Bills really, really wanted me ... and I just felt like I could fit in and be that added piece to get the team to the playoffs," Owens said. "I never envisioned none of the things that happened this year ... Those are some of the things that were definitely out of my control."

And then the 'after report'..

They said, Glaze said
 
Updated Jan 4, 2010 8:43 PM EDT
The Buffalo Bills have commenced "Operation Cleaning House" -- no matter what they're saying otherwise publicly.

On Monday morning FOXSports.com’s Jay Glazer reported the Bills fired their entire coaching staff, including interim head coach Perry Fewell. Fewell, however, was to interview Monday for the Bills' permanent head-coaching position.

However, shortly after Glazer's Monday's report became public the Bills released an awkwardly worded statement insisting that not one coach was terminated.


The statement read that members of the team's current coaching staff have been informed that their obligations for this season have been completed, and they now have the opportunity to seek positions elsewhere. The release said their status will then be determined by the Bills' next head coach.

So, we felt further clarification was needed considering Bills quickly moved to dispute Glazer’s report. When contacted for his reaction, the always candid Glazer opened up regarding what went down.

“The Bills assembled the entire coaching staff in a room Monday morning and new general manager Buddy Nix informed all the coaches that they all had to clean out their offices and remove their belongings from the team facility no later than Wednesday. Not only that, when the coaches left the room, there were boxes outside the hallway they could use to put their stuff in to clear out.

“The coaches were also told that while they would like for teams to still go about the proper protocol and ask for permission to speak with them if interested in hiring, NOT ONE REQUEST would be denied. The Bills even addressed insurance ramifications in the meeting – a conversation usually reserved for coaches being whacked.

"In reality, if the entire staff is gathered in a room and told they had to be gone and gone by Wednesday and boxes were waiting for them ... Hey, if it looks like a firing and sounds like a firing, you get the gist. Not sure why they went out of their way to dispute it, but if they want to get into semantics that’s fine.

"Buddy Nix is a good man and very good at what he does. He has a lot of respect in league circles and I’d be surprised if the release came from him.”

Can we re-seed the playoffs? If Matt Moore was the starter from day one, don’t you think the Panthers would be advancing?

I'm curious as well to see IF the Panthers do well next season with Matt Moore at the helm, Will coach John Fox stay on after the 2010 season or will he be fired or actually leave on his own ???

My 'dream senario' would be for Fox to stay on but as a Defensive Coordinator, Bring in Bill Cowher as the head coach, and see if Jon Gruden could be brought on board as Offensive Coordinator.. :o
I know that Fox won't take a step down per se, nor would Gruden IMO but I believe those 3 great minds could mold the Panthers into the next great dynasty.. 8)

Los Angeles announces intentions to poach the Jaguars or Bills

There's a company that plans to build a stadium outside of L.A., and that company also has plans to steal a couple of NFL teams from other cities. Their intended targets of thievery: the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.

From the AP: Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the company is still considering at least seven franchises for a new stadium some 25 miles east of Los Angeles. They also include the San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders.

But he said the Jaguars and the Bills are at the top of the list because they play in small markets that tamp down their earning potential and because they have little hope of building larger venues in their home regions.

We're coming for your team RVR!!!  ;)

In reality though, if any team comes to L.A., there will be earth-shattering hype followed by a steady decline in interest ultimately leading to yet another NFL exodus. The winners will be the citizens of Riverside County as they'll have a fancy new stadium to go watch super motocross.

Sources: Seattle, Carroll agree on deal

Pete Carroll has reached an agreement in principle with the Seahawks on a deal to be their next head coach, multiple NFL sources confirmed early Saturday morning.

Carroll was fully expected to be introduced by the Seahawks as early as Monday, after the team interviewed Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Saturday morning.

According to league sources, Frazier met with the Seahawks in Minneapolis, satisfying the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview a minority candidate for head-coaching and senior football-operations hires.

Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke had told Frazier that Carroll definitely does not have Seattle's job. Frazier had been unwilling to talk with the Seahawks about the head-coaching vacancy if Carroll had been promised full control of the Seahawks. Multiple sources indicated he had been.

On Friday, Jim Mora became the first Seahawks coach to be let go after just one season when the team finished 5-11.

Seattle also contacted the agent for Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, but as of Saturday morning, nothing had been set up. An interview with Rivera also would satisfy the Rooney Rule.

But the bottom line is, Carroll's agreement with Seattle is "100 percent done," one NFL source close to the situation said.

Sources: Warner likely to retire


Arizona's next loss could mark the last time that quarterback Kurt Warner plays in an NFL game.

He always could change his mind, but this likely will be the 38-year-old Warner's final NFL season, according to sources close to the quarterback.

Warner has been voted to five Pro Bowls, won two NFL MVP awards, one Super Bowl and became the second quarterback in history to throw more than 100 touchdown passes for two NFL franchises.

Earlier this season, Warner suffered a concussion that raised questions about his future.

Sources: Panthers' Fox can void 2010


There's a reason Panthers coach John Fox continues to be connected to head-coach openings.

Last month, the Panthers took the highly unusual step of giving Fox the right to void the last year on his contract, according to two NFL sources.

Of course, the only way Fox would do it were if he had a job and a contract waiting that made it worth leaving Carolina.

Washington didn't provide it, Cleveland never opened, Buffalo still is searching for a new head coach and Fox appears unwilling to go there, and Seattle is destined to hire Pete Carroll.

Should another attractive opening fail to materialize this offseason, Fox could wait a year, coach out his contract and become a free agent next year.

Some people around the league have suggested that, in time, with the support Fox enjoys in New York, he could be a potential successor to Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

Hang In There Cowher!! Don't Give Up On Us Just Yet! :o

The AFC match-ups are a a bit lopsided but the NFC match-ups are EPIC! It's gonna be hard to top what just happened but we could be in for some great stuff.

That would be incredible but I don't think there's any way that's gonna happen. The Colts are are better than the Pats, especially without Welker. They're a shell of what they are with him playing. The dude is so critical to their offense. And that run defense was just embarassing.

I was hoping Warner would win the Super Bowl and then retire. It would be a cool way to go out. But good lord, you have to play at least a tiny bit of defense to survive in the playoffs. Arizona is a freakin' sieve.

Who knows? Maybe Warner will come back.

Found out the Panthers 2010 schedule already..
Quote
January 08, 2010
Panthers' 2010 schedule eases up

The Panthers' 2010 schedule is the 26th toughest in the NFL,  based on their opponents' 2009 records, according to ESPN Stats and Information. That's quite a contrast from '09, when Carolina's schedule was the second hardest in the league. Next season's opponents will have a cumulative record of 122-134 (.427) from 2009.

Most of that is attributed to Carolina playing teams in the NFC West (24-40 in '09) and AFC North (33-31 in ) next season -- as opposed to the NFC East (38-25-1 in '08) and AFC East (38-26 in '08). Carolina also will play the third-place teams from the NFC East (New York Giants) and NFC North (Chicago) next season, instead of the first-place teams from those conferences (the Giants and Vikings) from '08 that they faced in 2009.

Based on last season's opponents' records, Houston and Tennessee (.547) have the toughest schedules in 2010; Arizona (.445) has the easiest.

Again, here are the Panthers' 2010 opponents (dates/schedule will be released in a few months).

HOME

Atlanta

New Orleans

Tampa Bay

San Francisco

Arizona

Baltimore

Cincinnati

Chicago

AWAY

Atlanta

New Orleans

Here inlies my delima..
I like the Saints cause they're 1) in our division, and 2) they have really come a long way since the Katrina days, but I'm a Favre Fan; not a Vikings fan perse, just a Favre fan (like Bob is a Kurt Warner fan but not a  Cardinals fan) so this will be a tough call for me, but either way, Go NFC to be a Super Bowl Champion..

But I'm also a Payton Manning fan (not a Colts fan) ... Oh.. Decisions decisions :-[

We in Dallas have the Cowboys' number. We know not to invest too much into them, because every time they make it all the way to almost the very end, they screw up so royally, you wonder who the hell they are and why they're getting paid so much.

That game was utterly pathetic. So many early opportunities missed. Hell, it should have been Dallas 14 Minnesota zip in the first quarter, but no such luck. Then Favre continues to baffle us all by being amazing even at 40. Then the Cowboys go into a trance and forget how to play the damn game. Romo was being pummeled every time he got the ball, and the kicker couldn't manage even a close field goal.

It's like they only ever want to get to the playoffs. Lucky for me, I don't really care, in the end.

To be fair......he was a University of Miami player and that was long after Johnson himself was gone (even though the mindset lingered).

And it was that he broke into the girl's dorm room at Barry University (up the street from where I grew up) and he took the dump on the floor of her closet.

Sadly, Jimmy Johnson drafted him for the dolphins and had "issues" after the "dump" affair in college.   Good old Cecil Collins.

"College career
After sitting out his freshman year he began his football career at LSU in grand fashion sitting our the first game of the season serving a suspension for breaking team rules. After this ignoble beginning however Collins went out and compiled 596 yards in his first four games before breaking his leg versus Vanderbilt.

He was kicked off of the LSU squad before the start of his second season after being twice arrested for illegally entering dwellings. He claimed he was sleepwalking and had no recollection of entering the girls' rooms. He received probation as his sentence and made a second attempt at college football at then Division II McNeese State University but violated his probation when he failed a drug screen and was kicked off of the McNeese squad as well.

[edit] NFL career
Collins was selected as the first pick in the fifth round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Dolphins out of McNeese State University by then coach-general manager Jimmy Johnson. Johnson explained that he believed Collins had only been sleepwalking. He appeared in eight games in the 1999 season, accumulating 414 yards and two touchdowns.

[edit] Legal issues
On December 16, 1999, Collins committed burglary in Palm Trace Landings, an apartment complex in Davie, Florida. He admits he broke into the home of a married woman that he knew from the gym, but said he only wanted to watch her sleep. After conviction on the charge, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison. His current release date is in 2014. Upon release, he may face incarceration in Louisiana due to his prior conduct there."

That wasn't Collins dumping in the closet - it was Najeh Davenport (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Najeh_Davenport) who went to the Packers.

And my Ex used to be a process server and went to that apartment complex with eviction notices all the time.  The Dolphin organization used it to put up players because it's near the training facility in Davie.  He was told by people in the office of that complex that what Collins did was "nothing" compared to what some of what other players had pulled or tried to pull.  Collins' stunt was just the first one that couldn't be covered up.

This could be good for the Bills. Gailey has a ton of experience.

Quote
Source: Bills hire Gailey as coach

The Buffalo Bills have hired former Dallas Cowboys and Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey as their new coach, a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The team announced it would hold a news conference at its facility in Orchard Park, N.Y., at 2 p.m. ET.

The Bills are said to be impressed with how Gailey has brought teams to the playoffs with quarterbacks such as Mike Tomczak, Kordell Stewart and Jay Fiedler. In fact, Bill Cowher -- whom the Bills had been courting to replace the fired Dick Jauron -- highly recommended Gailey to the Bills.

Cowher planned to make Gailey his assistant head coach/offensive coordinator if he came back. Gailey has coached in four Super Bowls and has had his teams go to the playoffs in 11 of his 15 NFL seasons.

The 58-year-old Gailey fits the profile set by newly hired general manager Buddy Nix, who preferred hiring someone with head-coaching experience. Gailey has run college and pro teams, including a two-year stint as coach of the World League of American Football Birmingham Fire in 1991-92. He also coached Troy State (1983-84) and Samford (1993).

Gailey was coach of the Cowboys in 1998-99, following Barry Switzer, reaching the playoffs in both seasons but failing to win a playoff game. He was dismissed after the 1999 season, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has acknowledged his mistake in firing Gailey.

The first half was bizarre. Sanchez was channeling Joe Montana for chrissakes! I haven't seen him make throws like that since he was at USC. But reality kicked in again during the second half. Now that's the kind of dominance I was expecting the entire game.

I wouldn't exactly say they were "on fire." They were 3 for 12 on third down conversions and they managed only 68 yards on the ground. They should have dominated the Vikings given how sloppy the Vikings were playing. If they don't play up their potential, the Colts could mess 'em up.

This has been one hell of a tough year for me...Packers fan, yet I was born in New Orleans - and then Favre played great all season, too. Along with being a casual Chargers fan as wekll, I'm glad I don't have to agonize over which team to root for anymore. The San Antonio Spurs of the NFL better watch out in Miami.

In any case, it's time for me to get a new Saints T-shirt before the Super Bowl party, seeing as the only one we have in our house is a Jim Everett shirt.

Just curious, does the Everett jersey periodically crumple to the floor for no apparent reason?

By the way, that was the purest field goal I've ever seen. That dude absolutely smoked that thing! It looks like the ball is still rising when it crosses the uprights. I mean the ball hits the top of the net!

It's available here if you want to check it out again. The actual kick starts at about 35 seconds in.

If you do watch this, listen to the sound the ball makes coming off his foot. It sounds like a cannon!

Ask a question....since I'll admit I know the game mostly but not every little nuance....

Why didn't the Saints try a field goal with a second left?

I know they were probably just out of the kicker's regular distance and therefore it was unlikely that he'd make it....but that didn't make it impossible.  And if somehow he pulled it off they would spare themselves having to hope for the coin toss to go their way - which seems to be the main way you win in overtime.

But what did they have to lose if he tried and failed?  Kicks are almost never blocked anymore and if he missed it couldn't be run back, could it?

What am I missing?

Well, the ball was on their own 48 after the interception. A kick from there would be approximately 69 yards, The all-time NFL record is 63 yards. And a field goal attempt can be returned. I must say that I'd like to find out how far the kick that won it for them would have traveled. That was a moonshot.

I think the idea was probably to take a quick shot down-field to try and get into range but I don't think anything materialized.

Okay....I didn't know that since every missed field goal I've seen the ball just went over to the other team from the spot of the attempt no matter where that was.

I don't know...I still think it would have been worthwhile to try a kick.  As you would a "Hail Mary".  I mean, teams risk those being run back if they're caught by the other team, right?

For some reason if I were the Saints I would have felt more comfortable trying a kick than leaving our chance to get into the Superbowl to a coin toss.....

(and yeah, there's a chance that the team that loses the toss will get a turn to score but....when was the last time, really?)

Well I was pretty sure the Saints were going to win all this week and in the first five minutes of this game I was sure of it.  The Vikings just don't seem to have their heads in this game and the Saints are pretty much unbeatable.  I'm pretty sure the Saints are going to win every Super bowl for the next few at years,they are just that good a team.  I really don't think there is a team in the NFL right now that can beat them.

First off, I'm so happy for the city of New Orleans!

*blows into the Viking's horn*

I, along w/ many, waited for the real Brett Favre to arrive at any point this season, and I was dancing like mad when he threw that interception towards the end of regulation. This entire escapade was so worth it for that one moment! So Monday was most awesome...

The Milwaukee JS, lead away...

Here we go again? He says he's not gonna waffle but I can't take anything he says too seriously. I do hope he decides to come back. He was really fun to watch this season.

Quote
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings must wait to hear from Brett Favre about whether he'll play next season. Coach Brad Childress says he won't set a deadline for the 40-year-old quarterback to decide.

Childress said Tuesday at his season-ending news conference that he'd prefer to know sooner rather than later, but that the team will plan for both possibilities. Favre insisted after the NFC Championship Game loss in New Orleans that he wouldn't take months to reach a decision, unlike last summer's back and forth.

That is so cool you got to witness that in person. Pure magic. I remember watching the game against the 49ers in St. Louis when Issac Bruce basically broke into tears of joy after catching his fourth TD. I remember thinking "This team is for real!"

My favorite memory from that game  was late in the game and one of the 49ers defensive backs (Nate McMillian I think), intercepted a ball in the end zone and was busy flexing his muscles and yelling at the fans.   Everyone in my sections started yelling back and pointing to the field behind him..... there was a flag on the play for pass interference on him.   He turned his head, saw the flag, then lowered his head and walked away.

Second round?    More likely 4th or 5th round, that is, unless Al Davis escapes his chains and picks him sooner.   From everything I read, he is at least 3 years away from being NFL ready.    I wonder why Florida did not try and correct all the mechanical flaws he has?    I know he was great with the flaws, but some coaching could have made him even better.

The whole "Who Dat" thing is stupid.    That clearly should not be "owned" by the NFL.   Reminds me when the Seahawks were claiming they owned the phrase "the 12th Man" when Texas A&M had been using that phrase for decades before.

Look at it from their perspective....

Maybe they get something from the home team for making Pro Bowl and a little in their pockets from the game itself.

But it's a great way to get a possibly career ending injury for no damn good reason.  And they're not even playing in Hawaii anymore.

I'd walk through it, too.

It's pretty fun to watch but I agree with you guys. The bottom line is any potential for injury is too risky. Guys get held up and some dude falls on their knee all the time. Too dangerous at any speed. It seems like there are guys who really don't want to be out there. Like I was watching Frank Gore and he was pretty much jogging around and making sure nobody ran into him.
