  1. Jerry Jones reminds me of the rich Texan from the Simpsons. Then again, I always was able to compare Robert Kraft to Mr. Burns…

  2. Titans coach Jeff Fisher on undrafted rookie RB LeGarrette Blount: “He has some unique skills that are different from the others on our roster”
    Come on, that’s simply too easy…
    Seriously, this guy is going to be a beast. It make take 4 years and moving to another team to get a starting job, but he will be a stud.

  3. in regards to the ravens post, i am a ravens fan,and yes it is starting to get a little scary with all the “expert” and analysts picking them,they really havent done much and as a fan i think they are getting way too muchpraise for having never beat the top tier teams on a reg basis

  4. Typical PFT for LT “Another day, another article noting that Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson didn’t stand out during the Spring.”
    What else did the article say: “Making a definitive statement about a running back in non-contact drills is like critiquing a movie based on the trailer. ” And “According to running backs coach Anthony Lynn, “I see myself as having two starters. (Tomlinson and Greene)”
    With half the posts in PFT you get “insert bias here”….

  5. digitalbath just relax. their going to have a bombsquad this year. can’t wait to play in Pitt.

  6. “T Anthony Davis: The path to NFL stardom apparently will be filled with potholes for Davis. It’s hard to get an accurate read in non-contact drills, but the big kid occasionally struggled with both timing (false starts) and pass blocking. By the minicamp, he was getting fewer first-team reps than fellow rookie lineman Mike Iupati.”
    HA ! Wait until he plays at Qwest Field to open the season and the 12th Man is in full roar . This is going to be fun .
