Mike Sherman looks like the favorite to become the next head coach of the Bucs, although it’s entirely possible that the team is secretly negotiating with an unknown candidate, as it did with Chip Kelly.

There’s talk in San Francisco that the 49ers should go after DeSean Jackson.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is heading to the Pro Bowl.

  1. LaRon Landry is “opting for a non-surgical approach to his Achilles injury”….I think the Redskins are going to opt for a non-contractual extension to his contract extension.

  2. “The Texans call J.J. Watt “The Milkman” because he always delivers, which makes no sense because milkmen haven’t delivered in about half a century.”

    No, Conner Barwin gave him that moniker because the kid drinks more milk than anyone he’s ever seen. Barwin said so on his Twitter page a few weeks ago. The “always delivers” saying just came with it b/c that’s what they used to say about milkmen and b/c Watt is a beast on game day.

  3. The Chiefs will miss Phil Emery much more than they realize. When Pioli was in charge of the draft it was a total disaster. 9 picks and 7 of those guys are no longer on the team. Plus of the 2 remaining one is Tyson Jackson a first rounder who has been a HUGE dissapointment. Better give Emery a nice pay raise and keep him.

  4. People say Tom Hanks is a stand up guy too but i wouldn’t want him kicking my field goals either.

  5. How come half of the articles say the Patriots are motivated by revenge and the other half say that there is only a few Patriots left from the last Super Bowl team? Seems a little inconsistent.

  6. Does Tampa have any idea what they would be getting in Sherman?

    Its like the bottom of the barrel. Both Marty and Zimmer would appear to be a better option.

  7. “There’s talk in San Francisco that the 49ers should go after DeSean Jackson.”

    Why? They already have a good returner but mediocre receiver in Ted Ginn Jr, and he’ll play for less money.

  8. I can’t believe people are arguing the origin of “Milkman”. Unless he was named after some obscure guy named Viktor Milk or something, a horrific and brutal warrior who killed more enemies that Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun put together, then its just an incredibly stupid nickname.

  9. MDS, there are milkmen in Colorado. It’s a company called Royal Crest Dairy.

    I, my parents and my grandma all grew up in Wisconsin. My grandma’s dad was a German immigrant cheese maker. ALL of us think Royal Crest is the best milk we’ve ever had.

    So it’s still around.

  10. The Patriots need to be motivated by winning and creating a legacy for this squad, not one that let it slip away. Winning this game won’t change anything about four years ago. But it’ll make waking up the following Monday morning a lot easier.

  11. “There’s talk in San Francisco that the 49ers should go after DeSean Jackson.”

    ———-
    Please no. The last thing the 49ers need is a tiny WR that can only run one route, has mediocre hands and is a pouty, whiny, diva.

  12. “The Texans call J.J. Watt “The Milkman” because he always delivers, which makes no sense because milkmen haven’t delivered in about half a century.”

    “No, Conner Barwin gave him that moniker because the kid drinks more milk than anyone he’s ever seen. Barwin said so on his Twitter page a few weeks ago. The “always delivers” saying just came with it b/c that’s what they used to say about milkmen and b/c Watt is a beast on game day.”

    And it also makes sense since he went to Wisconsin, the dairy capital of America.
