  1. David Garrard’s whole career has been about bounce backs. He has been up and down, up and down and down, up and d0wn and down and down again. Time to cut ties with that clown and finally draft a QB.

  2. Stillerfan predicts….write it down,,,you heard it here 1st. After the Texans destroy Dallas this weekend, Wade Philips WILL be let go.

  3. What a bunch of crap regarding the Vikings……it is the dolts (Bolts) that wouldn’t pull the trigger….the Vikings had the gun loaded, the safety off and handed it to the dolts GM……THEY are the ones that wouldn’t pull the trigger!

  4. yep the bronco’s are patting themselves so much on the back, that they also patted them selves upside the brain, to move up in the draft to get Tebow…that tells you right there how much they bthink about Orton, and how much Chicago thought about him as well when they showed him the door.
