    Uh o! Mark Ingram has a knee injury, a prelude of things to come, cause you know Bush was worthless with his injuries and did nothing for the organization cause he was ALWAYS hurt. Thank you New Orleans welcome to Miami Bush!

    I always considered the Cowboys to be Suzzanne Sommers – OK a long time ago, but embarassing today.

    That’s ok, Dallas fans consider the Eagles to be Anna Kournikova — Flashy, but hasn’t done jack ish where it counts.

    Alright, I am really sick of the media bashing the Bills pick of Spiller. Who else should they have drafted? There are only 2 players in the next 10 picks I would have liked to have seen them take, Pierre-Paul (who is a 4-3 end, and was considered a project) and Pouncey (who isn’t worth a top-10 selection). Spiller was the best player available, by far. You could also argue them trading back, but to pick up who? Odrick would be the only late-1st pick to fill a need, or you could make a case for Bulaga. I think Spiller will break out this year. I am not saying he will start but he will show progress and challenge Freddie Jackson for playing time at some point. Jackson’s comments were out of line, and if the Bills decide to “pay” Fred, they will be making a mistake. He will turn 31 after this season, and has already shown some signs of wearing down.

    I love the parity in the NFL that other pro sports. Honestly. pretty much anyone can win any year. Really, who saw Green Bay going all the way this year? And on top of that, the two most pathetic franchises in NFL history, the Lions and Browns, finally have their franchise quarterbacks and are on the verge of contending. So glad that football is back and just as good as ever!

    Cowboys = Jennifer Aniston????

    Thanks for the link to Taylor Mays’ video interview after he arrived in Cincinatti. I must say that I never realized how little media savvy Mays has. He looked like a high school player getting his first interview: eyes avoiding the camera, mumbling his words, and generally avoiding the questions posed to him. He doesn’t act like a big time athlete from USC. Recalling his hissy fit when Pete Carroll passed on him in the draft – and now the 9ers giving up on him – it seems he doesn’t get over rejection well. The guy seems to have lost all his confidence.

    Just because the only players YOU would have taken wouldn’t have made sense doesn’t mean there weren’t other picks available that would have. How about Bryan Bulaga? He was considered by some analysts as a top OT talent, and worthy of a top ten pick. I think he showed last year that he WAS worth a top ten pick, and would have been a BIG improvement over whatever player you have at either tackle position last year or this year. Earl Thomas would have been a nice addition, and a much better alternative to Donte Whitner as the strong safety (Earl can play either spot). Spiller is a one trick pony, all flash who can’t run between the tackles, and whose speed does you absolutely no good if your line can’t spring him into the second or third level of the defense. Good luck.

    yes the Phins need to open up the offense… but first you need a QB not an expensive merry go round at RB where you already had two good guys
