    SS doesn’t want to be on a rebuilding team but he wants to go to Oak?
    Don’t get me wrong, I think Oak is doing a lot of good things and may contend this season but I think they are still in the rebuilding phase. Kind of like SF isl…why not them if he wants to stay in Cali? If you’re a vet and want to go to a good team, not one that may take a few years (which is his situation- at best- in Carolina), does it make much sense to trade a young 2-14 team with a new HC to go to a team like Oak or SF that’s probably just 2-3 steps ahead of that in the rebuilding phase and also both have new HCs?
    SD makes sense, they are usually in the thick of the race and of those three CA teams, actually have made the playoffs multiple times within the last 5-6 years. They also have a good offensive mind @ HC (which SS has never had @HC) and a
    very good QB.

    Rookie WR Edmond Gates should get a shot returning kicks for the Dolphins.

    If by “returning kicks” you mean “catching kickoffs in the endzone and taking a knee.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    Of course it didn’t. Millions of our tax dollars have gone to a new stadium, new hotels downtown, and road construction for the SB to come to town. We’ve had to endure a few years of altered traffic patters, ridiculous construction delays, and general annoyance to make the city more suitable for hosting a Super Bowl that we’re being told might not even come.

    Of course we’re not happy, and probably more unhappy than a lot of cities right now.

    Good news: There is perhaps only one person on earth that thinks Caleb Hanie is a worse QB than Todd Collins, Dan LeFevour and Nathan Enderle.

    Bad news (for Bears fans): It’s Mike Martz.

    I’m with you, “comeonnowguys” I don’t get what Martz has against Hainie. He was the best QB that played in that last Bears game. He may not be “Martz’s guy,” but he’s a serviceable back-up to Jay. Damn sight better than Todd Collins.

    No idea about Nathan Enderle… hopefully Martz is right and he will be better than Caleb, but I scratch my head over Martz & Hainie…

    “RB Alex Green is the first player the Packers have ever drafted from Hawaii.”

    And the fans anticipate seeing the Haka performed at Lambeau Field.
