  1. A 75 Caprice Classic worth $136,000?????? He got robbed when he bought the car!

  2. When you have Bill Belicheat speaking through your helmet to throw the ball to a receiver who will definitely be open because you’ve cheated and know the defense the opponent is running against you on that play, one of the children I left in the pool this morning would look stellar at QB.

  3. Steelers LB James Harrison won a player survey as the toughest player in the AFC North.
    Ray Lewis wonders if James Harrison’s toughness makes him like Jesus.

  4. “Steelers LB James Harrison won a player survey as the toughest player in the AFC North.”
    Not to mention a great father and a having a great backhand (Ask the woman he put in her place.)

  5. “Said Texans WR Mark Simmons…”
    I live in Houston and I’ve never heard of this guy. You must have to do a lot of scraping the bottom of the barrel to find even one thing about some teams this time of year.
    A receiver, huh? The hell you say. Aundre Johnson, Aundre Davis, Kevin Walter, and Jacoby Jones. So the #5 WR (at best) coming off his rookie season (I had to look it up) where he didn’t play a single down says something important enough to wind up here? I hope he printed this page as a remembrance to his career before he gets cut during the 1st week of camp.
