Bye-Bye T.O.!!! posted on 03/06/2009
Maybe Terrel will finally figure out how special he is not!!! Yes he puts up good stats but the Cowboys actually had a shot there for a minute. They tried to shrug off the drama in the locker room like it wasn't going to affect the way they played the game. Obviously it did. I mean how can an organization such as the cowboys, and let's face it, they are all about the aspects of Pro-football that most people hate, but, how can they focus on the playoffs when you're worried about Jessica Simpson, T.O., the cheerleaders little TV show and Jerry Jone's ego. It's a messed up crew down there right now and I think that they made the right decision for now. I believe they have a lot of work left to do though. Romo is good and I think he has the capability of taking "a" team to the playoffs, at least. But we'll just have to wait and see what they do down there. It's unlike the cowboys to go into a season without a big play wide receiver. So I wonder who they think they are going to get. We can only wait and see as the Dallas Drama unfolds once again.

What's up with the Redskins and Jay Cutler? posted on 03/03/2009
So let me get this straight. The Redskins sign Albert Haynesworth to an outrageous 100 million dollar deal. Then they go out and resign Free Agent DeAngelo Hall, and then release DE Jason Taylor. And why, because he didn't want to spend his off season sitting at the Redskins stadium. Why should he spend eight of his thirteen weeks off working? I don't know. But the Skins sure thought he should. The man has three kids and a wife in Florida. As a professional football player I'm sure he doesn't get a lot of time with his family any ways. I just would've thought Jason Taylor would be an asset to that team. He'll find a new home with out a problem though I'm sure.
And Jay cutler, what can I say besides what a little baby. McDaniels thought about trading him and now Cutler won't even answer his phone. Boo-hoo. Get over it. I think McDaniels should be upset. He could have got a deal if he would've got Cassel. There is no reason for McDaniels to have faith in a little whiny baby who throws fits on and off the field. How is a team supposed to be led by someone like that. And all this comes at the same time as Brandon Marshal getting arrested for the fourth time in three years. Yeah the charges were dropped but still, he's a pro-bowl wide receiver but how much can an organization put up with before you just have to move on. If you want to be a professional football player I think you should probably learn to be more of a role model. Not always fighting with your girlfriends in public and getting arrested. Brandon Marshal missed last years opener for the same reason. Now it looks like a repeat, but this time his punishment will be more severe and the Broncos need Marshal. They are going to need whatever help they can get after last years horribly disappointing season. And as For Jay Cutler. I hear that the Lions are looking for a Quarterbach kc
Good news, Kind of, Not really posted on 03/03/2009
Six time All-pro LB James Harrison turned down the third offer made by Pittsburgh today. Harrison signed with Pitt. in April 2006 to a four year 5.5 million dollar deal that ends at the end of the 2009 season. Obviously the Steelers would much rather keep Harrison than watch him lead some one else's defense through the playoffs and into the Superbowl like he did this year. He was absolutely unforgiving with his 59 tackles, 16 sacks, 7 forced fumbles and 1 record breaking interception. LEGIONDARY!!! Thank you James Harrison for the awesome year of football, hope to see you in black & gold in 2010.
No more Nate Washington in Pittsburgh. After 1,705 receiving yards, 12 touchdowns, and 104 catches in his three seasons with the Steelers. Nate Washington decided to sign a 6 year 27 million dollar deal with AFC rival Tennessee. Washington probably didn't want to stay number three man in Pittsburgh behind Ward and Holmes. So good luck to him.
Free Agency Day 1, already going crazy with greed!!! posted on 02/26/2009
So free agency just started and already it's going crazy. I heard that they are even talking about a non-capped year in 2010. But I guess, with the economy being as bad as it is, even owners might have trouble coming up with enough money to shell out to these athletes. Who, in my opinion, should just be glad that they get to play. I can barely find a job, these guys complain about not getting enough millions!!!
That is what drives me crazy about free agency. It causes some of the not as good players to become over payed. Like DeAngelo Hall, first free agent to sign, and for good reason. He signed his new six year 54 million dollar contract at the moment free agency started. That is a lot of money for someone playing less than a half a season, don't you think?I do. I sure hope he can live up to it. Those poor Redskins have had high hopes at the beginning of the last few seasons just to fall short of their hopes. Maybe this year guys, maybe.
