George Clooney likes to wear a Bengals T-shirt.  (Get back to us when he paints his face black and orange and dons an Adam Jones jersey for a movie premiere.)

Jaguars G.M. Gene Smith has cracked the code for improving the team:  More talent.

As the prepare to face the banged-up Jets, the Colts are banged up.

Texans WR DeVier Posey says the “vibe was down” after the Monday night game because Houston won only by six points.

    The Jaguars’ GM, Gene Smith, says the team needs more talent…. proving he is a master of the obvious. He does realize that part of of his job description is to find and draft talent, right? Each year, the Jag’s make at least one (and I’m being generous) highly questionable pick. His name should definately be on the GM Hot Seat list.
    Personally, I hope Smith stays….it’s like giving my Texans a 12th man on the field when we play them.

    Gene Smith’s idea of talent is the best guy available in Division II that he can sign for less than the slotted figure.
