  1. “The Bills are inviting their fans to an open practice in June.”
    What you’re not hearing is that the “open practice” is in Toronto.

  2. Buccaneers LB Brandon Ruud is looking forward to playing behind the two rookie defensive tackles the team selected in April.
    “Brandon”? I think you mean Barrett, genuis.

  3. Hey, I know the Bucs aren’t very good right now, but the least you could do is know the name of the starting LB! Who the hell is Brandon Ruud? Unless we made some offseason move that I don’t know about, I assume you are referring to Barret Ruud!

  4. “on the day of his retirement, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald …”
    For a brief moment I jumped for joy, thinking that useless POS was done. Then I read the rest of the line and realized you were referring to Zach Thomas’ retirement.

  5. I don’t understand what Edelman is getting huffy about. Would it make it better if people said he was filling in for Welker? I mean Welker is out and some one has to replace him on the rooster… oppps sorry.
