Welcome back to work

We hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend, including some time with your family, some time eating some hamburgers and/or the pink missile-shaped packages of ground-up pig or cow parts that can’t otherwise be sold (but that are nevertheless delicious), and most importantly some time reflecting on the millions of young men and women who gave their lives for us at a time those lives barely had begun.

We hope that most of you weren’t working.  And for those of you who weren’t working, we know that you need a refresher on the things you may have missed while not checking PFT on your non-work time.

So here’s a quick look at the best of the three-day weekend, in the event that you find it too taxing to press the “previous” button at the bottom of the page.

If Drew Brees decides to sit out all of 2012, the Saints won’t be able to use the exclusive version of the franchise tag — and the compensation would drop to a first-round and third-round pick.

If the trade deadline had been later in 2011, would the Colts have replaced sucking for Luck with snortin’ for Orton?

The Cam Newton/Alex Smith debate should boil down to one question:  Which guy would you rather have on your team right now?

Some fans in Indy have decided to watch the games at home as the Colts rebuild.

The Jags plan to “resize” Everbank Field, whatever that means.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin likes to win at all costs, unless the cost includes paying a bounty.

The 2012 Bears’ offense may look a lot like the Vikings’ offense from 2002 through 2005.  (Is that good news or bad news?)

Dolphins LB Karlos Dansby is delusional.

Lions DT Nick Fairly likes to drive fast.  And drunk.  Allegedly.

How ’bout them 132 Cowboys fans?

The Bears are concerned about Matt Forte’s knee.

But Forte thinks they shouldn’t be.

And his agent is pissed about it.

Jets coach Rex Ryan has gone from wanting to kick Tony Sparano’s ass to kissing it.

With a net worth of nearly $4 million, we should all hope to be as bankrupt as Jamal Lewis.

Here comes the Judge.

Jeff Garcia finally has something in common with Terrell Owens — they want back in and no one wants them.

I’ll bet the farm that New Jersey fails in its effort to adopt betting on NFL games.

  1. I don’t agree with your assessment of “The Cam Newton/Alex Smith debate should boil down to one question: Which guy would you rather have on your team right now?”

    I would rather have Drew Brees right now than Peyton Manning because who knows what Peyton could turn out to be after the injury….that doesn’t mean that Brees is the better QB.

    I’d probably rather have Alex Smith right now than Cam Newton even though Cam could be the better QB, we just don’t know yet.

  2. Wow! It’s sounding more and more like Brees is begining to have the leverage! And honestly, I hope and say, rightfully so…

  3. The Cam Newton/Alex Smith debate should boil down to one question: Which guy would you rather have on your team right now?
    It’s not even close, Cam gets the nod over Smith. Smith had an excellent year by his standards. Newton had an excellent year by EVERY rookie QB’s standards. Put Cam on that team last year with a defense like that to have his back, and we would be talking about the 49ers who won the Superbowl.

  4. Sorry to sound disrespectful, but if Drew Brees has to sit out, someone should test Tom Benson for Mad Cow Disease. I’ve seen some wacky contract negotiations through the years, but this is mind-boggling. Sign your QB.
