    “William Rhoden of the New York Times thinks Jets fans should be seething because of their team’s refusal to pursue Owens. [Editor’s note: We didn’t know T.O. could play quarterback.]“Well, William Rhoden is clearly a moron. The biggest question mark on that team is who will be under center at the start of the season. Why would they bring in a “me, me, me” receiver. Idiot.

    “Browns TE Robert Royal’s agent said that his client is going to be the starter, regardless of how TE Steve Heiden recovers from knee surgery.”
    Another Cleveland regime on the in-and-out 4 year plan. Next?

    “Jaguars assistant coach Mike Tice helped out at a food demonstration by TV chef Bobby Flay.”
    Well, I could have guessed that they were equally qualified to coach in the NFL – but would you want to be in the kitchen when Meathead picks up a sharp knife?

    The feeling will not be mutual in Tampa.

    Not too sure I agree with that statement… it’s the agent that is talking him up. The agent has no relevance to who starts and who is number 2. For all we know we are running two TE sets with Daboll next season.
    Heiden is a beast though, expect him to be back and be the starter because he is a true dawg.

    Come on Florio, there must be something going on in Packer land. The only thing you can find is DT Dave Pureifory passed away?

    Jason Whitlock is a bad journalist hiding behind ideals. He is correct that it is there job to question Pioli. However, it is not Pioli’s job to give him that information. Pioli’s job is to put a winning football team on the field. Jason – you’ll just have to work harder to get the information you so badly desire.
