Texans P Shane Lechler (flu) was released from the hospital on Friday.

Maybe Colts LB Erik Walden should want to be suspended for the next two games, in order to avoid a rematch with Titans TE Delanie Walker; “I whupped on him the whole game and I’m going to whup on him again in two weeks,” Walker said. “We are not cool.”

Upgraded cell service at Mile High Stadium will be unveiled for Sunday night’s game between the Chiefs and Broncos.

    Shouldn’t the Snelling arrest reset the “Days Without an Arrest” ? Also what’s the longest it has been this season in number of days without an arrest?

    That’s the first video I’ve seen on the incident during the Jets/Pats game. The original article indicated it was a brawl in the stands where a couple of women pushed some man down on the ground and were kicking him in the head. I said then there was no excuse for a man to punch a woman but that women shouldn’t be brawling in stadiums either. These days you see all kinds of behavior from both genders.

    But this just shows some Neanderthal nut going berserk and punching a woman half his size! His lawyer says off-setting penalties? Not from what you see here.

    Glad you got to see the video Deb, that’s why I was sticking to my guns on that one. We’ll never know the whole story, and the whole thing will prob get dismissed anyway, but I couldn’t condone what I saw. The fact that a lot of people could rubbed me the wrong way. Tide should roll tonite.

    Thanks, ted. Many times I comment based on just what’s presented here without clicking other links or checking additional info. It’s just a time issue. If it’s about my team, I’ll spend more time fact-checking. Otherwise, these days I just zoom through. Have good friends who went to Miss. St., but can’t cut them any slack today :)

    Dez will be broke when his NFL career is over. If you want to keep your money, you can’t spend it on random strangers mang.
