    “Scout.com ranks WR Terrell Owens, most recently of the Bills, as the top unrestricted free agent still available.”
    Guess that means there ain’t a whole lot left in ‘free agency’.

    Why on earth isn’t Johnny Unitas, Pittsburgh’s 9th round draft pick (1955) in the top for ‘pound for pound’? Granted he didn’t play long for Pittsbugh, but his impact as a 9th round pick that became one of the best QBs of all time has to be up there with Brady. Has to be.
    What about Roger Staubach, 10th round (1965)? Doesn’t he have to be there as well?

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Padres Opening Day.
    ————————————————-
    That is the closest thing the Padres will see to a good arm until at least 2013.
    Although I think Mat Latos can really be their ace someday……….Yeah nobody knows and cares about what I am talking about.
    Just like all my posts :)

    Padres havent had their home opener yet, so Rivers has not done that yet haha.
    And Chris Young pitched a great game the other day, and the rest of the bull pen has talent, just need to produce more runs to support them

    ***********************
    A couple of good picks but I nominate the recently deceased Merlin Olsen, who made the Pro Bowl in every year but one and Anthony Munoz, who was the most dominant OL that I’ve ever seen and made the Pro Bowl in all but two years of his career.
