  1. Chargers should grab Jamal Lewis
    There isnt anything the Broncos can do to make Kyle Orton an elite QB, it is what it is, he is decent, think Rich Gannon.
    Kolb isnt a franchise QB, think Kyle Orton.
    Say what you want about Joey Porter, but he isnt afraid to be a leader.
    Someone tell McCluster that juking someone in practice doesnt count, its practice. My 13 year old son scored 2 TDs in practice yesterday from the HB position, I doubt he gets a carry on Saturday afternoon. He plays TE/WR.
    I really need Jason Witten and Michael Turner to play this week for my fantasy team, oh well, maybe I still can get Snelling off waivers.
    I like these articles Florio(or Alper), good stuff.

  2. “The fact that he’s a big stud dude in there, he gives us a lot of girth inside.”

  3. Fixing Joe Flacco implies he has some skills capable of being fixed. 3 years into the league and he is what he is. A very mediocre NFL QB, and that is all he ever will be.

  4. Cowher will be back in 2011. Daughters are grown and sadly Kay has died so there’s less family ties. Several 8-8 type teams may be looking, NYG, Bears, maybe Dal (can he get along with JJ?), maybe Minn, as well as the unusual 4-12 teams such as OAK, CAR and at least one good team such as SD.

  5. That’s great that Welker’s giving Faulk advice about coming back after an ACL repair.
    If he can do what Welker did he might be back and healthy for the playoffs.

  6. Good article about Tomlinson’s approach to football this season.
    Schotty’s quote sticks in my head:
    “He’s always had passion, he’s always had fire. But this is the worst guy in the world to question and criticize because he literally takes it to heart, and you see a guy that has got so much to prove.”
    If that is the case, question and criticize all you want, since it only adds gas to his tank. He is proving to many he’s still got it.

  7. I told all the doubters that Tomlinson still had it. And like I said before, don’t be surprised if he becomes the starter by mid-season. He is one of the greatest RB’s of all time.
    Insert Kanye’s voice, “OF ALL TIME!”

  8. “Don’t expect to see much of Falcons RB Michael Turner this weekend”
    Please be careful when you read the articles you link to. The whole article was a bunch of “what ifs.” Your statement is not a fair characterization of what the article stated and represented.
