  1. “Redskins RB Willie Parker embraces training camp competitions; this won’t be his first.”
    Yeah, but it’s probably his last…

  2. I think Charles Davis missed the boat on best TEs:
    Here’s a glance at Davis’ list; check out the video for more:
    1. Tony Gonzalez (Falcons)
    2. Antonio Gates (Chargers)
    3. Jason Witten (Cowboys)
    4. Dallas Clark (Colts)
    T-5. Vernon Davis (49ers)
    T-5. Jermichael Finley (Packers)
    I’ll go with Gonzalez and Gates as 1, 2, and even Witten and Clark as 3rd and 4th, but Vernon Davis and Finley should be replaced with Zach Miller, Owen Daniels and/or Anthony Fasano; two of which are threatening to become the future #1 and #2 TEs in the league.

  3. Why does everyone keep insisting the Raiders will go after every malcontent, criminal in the NFL? They haven’t gone out of their way to sign guys like that for YEARS. Get over it.. as much as everyone wants to say the Raiders have a criminal element, there are many more teams in the NFL that presently have rosters full of criminals than the Raiders do.

  4. Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi promoted the Got Milk? campaign in Cleveland. (Sorry, we don’t got any better Browns links during the sssslow season.)

  5. If Plax can still play, i would be all for him coming to the Raiders. I think he really got the shaft by the league. He shoots himself in the leg, and then get’s tossed out with yesterday’s garbage. Meanwhile Ray Lewis stabs and kills a guy, pays the family $2 mil to go away and he becomes the poster boy for the NFL. I just don’t get it.

  6. Marv Levy and Bud Grant are living proof that Dan Reeves deserves to be in the HOF. He was an 0 fer but so were those two.
