  1. No Vegas doesn’t like the Eagles Super Bowl chances! They make the odds on the way the money comes in on team, and adjust accordingly. In Vegas it’s all about money, the have no favorites!!

  2. Can you imagine how much farther the Browns Org is gonna be behind if they spend all this money and still don’t hit .500? They still don’t have a QB. lol

  3. I personally love Golden Tate, but he needs to shut up. Seattle doesn’t have unlimited cap space or they would have re-signed him. 4.5/yr was all they had to offer with other contracts on the table. Was he a better player than Bennett last year? No. And with Thomas, Sherman, and Wilson coming up, there’s no way they could pay him what he was wanting. To act like the fans and front office didn’t value him is ridiculous and infantile.

  4. “The Panthers like the fact that new S Roman Harper knows the NFC South.”

    That’s like having confidence in Sarah Palin’s foreign affair experience because she can see Russia from her backyard.

  5. I never heard that anyone in Detroit put a gun to Tate’s greedy head and demanded that he sign the contract. His post SB remarks re: the “hometown discount”, indicate that he knew then that the Hawks were not going to be in a position to pay big dollars to everyone. Now he’s acting butt hurt that John didn’t bust the cap for him. Enjoy your new friends in Motown, Golden. They’re all you got, and hopefully, all you’ll need.

  6. What’s even funny about the Browns and Bengals is that the Bengals have a longer playoff win drought then the Browns lmao!

  7. Golden Tate’s ego has been punctured because the Seahawks didn’t value him as he thinks they should.

    But the writing was on the wall last year for Golden to read, when the Seahawks signed Percy Harvin.

    Sorry, GT, but that’s a fact. Now, Good luck to you! (except when you play the Seahawks)
