    How do you sprain a left tackle? Perhaps the packers should List all of their o-lineman with this injury.

    Proof read much?
    Bengals QB Carson Palmer may have to hand off with his right hand because of his sprained left tackle.

    Will someone at the 49ers be responsible and stop Michael Lewis from taking the field? I know Singletary has this whole “emotion of the game” thing going on. Lewis’ long-term mental health is at stake here. At this rate, he’s going to end up killing himself at 42.

    “KR Allen Rossum said he dreamed about playing for the Cowboys as a little kid. ”

    This is from the article you referenced regarding the Seahawks and Jack Del Rio:
    Houshmandzadeh didn’t take offense to Del Rio’s alleged actions, but perhaps the Seahawks did, judging from the spanking they handed the Jaguars.
    What part of that leads you to conclude that the Seahawks were fired up by the actions of Del Rio as your one liner so definitively states?
    Can you even spell H-A-C-K? You’ve got to stop this double inference non-sense. It’s illogical and an embarassment. Unfortunately I cared enough to comment, but I’m hoping most people won’t, and will just stop visiting.
