  1. What the heck is Bill Reiter of FOXsports talking about?? Troubled roads becuz of a babbling wife, a crazy TE, and a Sound Fx bit with the correct plan and a great play? No pass rush, yes…no vertical threat, yes….poor secondary, yes…..but the 3 he picked, no…

    This is a case of wishful thinking…..Pats still have 3 more productive years to chase a title…

  2. From the Green Bay Press….”The gravy train keeps rolling for the Green Bay Packers.

    Their stock sale has generated a mind-boggling $65 million in a two-month span.

    Their share of the NFL’s new network television contract will be far in excess of $100 million per year and, when added to other league-generated revenue, that figure will approach $200 million per year.”
    It’s actually a good article and shows how Packer mgmt. and board of directors knows that it can continue to take advantage of those “stockholder owners” because they’re to naive to understand that they are getting played. My problem is with how the NFL is allowing the other 31 teams to “get played” by the packers. If the NFL wants to allow the Packers to have exclusive rights to print funny money, then that $65 million from funny money should be subtracted from the overall NFL revenue sharing that the Packers get from the other 31 teams…….or otherwise open up the printing presses to the other 31 teams. If the Green Bay and the Packers want to be treated like the other “big boys”, then it’s time they are required to act like the other 31 big boys. In addition, while this has nothing to do with revenue, it does provide an unfairness as to the play of the game. Why when a player from any of the other 31 teams jumps into the stands or as Vernon Davis did in the NFC Championship game against the Giants, get their team penalized 15 yards on the kickoff for excessive celebration after a TD but yet the Packers have yet another exclusive right to jump into the stands after they score a TD? How can it be so difficult for ANY sporting event to expect the two opponents to play by the exact same rules???????????????

  3. Is Oregon RB LaMichael James a possibility for the Raiders?

    Nope, they have RB Taiwan Jones. I can see him going to the Seahawks and pairing him with RB Marshawn Lynch for a little bit of Thunder and Lightning.

  4. Brian Baldinger
    of NFL Network predicts the Browns will make the playoffs in 2012.

    This dude has taken to many shots to the head.

    Browns to the playoff in 2012 with no QB & the division they play in. Come on Brian??

  5. Amazing… The eagles are still patting themselves on the back for feeling “close” to being a good team !
    Vick will never let them win anything of importance.
