Next link is for Patriots fans really, but does have a great quote i'd like to share:

Quote:

In any offseason, Belichick is the standard by which all other football front office men are judged. But typically his offseasons are shorter than most other GM's and he has to play catch up. This year that's not the case. And the last time the Pats missed the playoffs... when Belichick had a jump on the competition so to speak... was after the 2002 season. Here's what he did that year: Drafted Ty Warren, Eugene Wilson, Asante Samuel, Dan Koppen, and Tully Banta-Cain. Traded Tebucky Jones for a 2nd Rounder in 2004 (Corey Dillon) and traded for a another '04 No. 1 (Vince Wilfork). He also signed Rosevelt Colvin, Rodney Harrison, Ted Washington, Tyrone Poole and Don Davis. Oh, and they went 14-2 each of the next two years and won both Super Bowls. The bottom line is you don't outsmart Belichick when he's got extra time to prepare.

Interesting enough actually.

Pity for everyone else that the Steelers take on the NFC North next year, going from the hardest schedule this year to one of the easiest next. (full details here)

NO! NO! Surely that is after the initial contact when he is falling over!?

Strathclyde Eagle 04-02-2009 09:27 PM

Agree with peagle on this one.

Think the replays were pretty clear that both feet were in.

pauldrulez 04-02-2009 09:27 PM

No idea.

Only posting what I find :D

The Nashville City Paper is reporting that the Titans and DT Albert Haynesworth are still far apart on a new contract. The Titans reportedly have made an initial contract offer to Haynesworth, but there’s still some work to do. Haynesworth was tagged as a franchise player last season and met incentives worked into the deal in order to reach free agency this year.

The Tennessean is reporting that the contract talks between the Titans and QB Kerry Collins haven’t progressed. Collins has said he won’t return to the Titans unless he’s their starter.

It’s easy enough to refer back to last week’s report, but now there’s smoke coming from the Vatican.

The Oakland Raiders are on the verge of officially hiring interim head coach Tom Cable as their full-time head coach. The announcement is expected to come this week, possibly as early as Wednesday.

The Raiders said last week that no decision had been made, but they continue hiring assistant coaches who have connections to Cable.
I'd say i'm shocked but i'm not.

Everyone loves a Cable Guy.

For the second year in a row, Pro Bowl players practiced at Kapolei High School, a few miles from their hotel. The football stadium is still under construction, as the press box was only half standing, and crews in hard hats building new bleachers stopped what they were doing to watch the AFC all-stars pour onto the field for the first of three practices leading up to the Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium.

On a windy and cool morning, students crowded the bleachers on the opposite side of the field to see the NFL’s best on display, until a loud bell signaling the change of class compelled some of them — but not all — back inside.

Chaos surrounded the field, but the field itself looked pristine. That didn’t last long. Ten minutes into practice, assistants started filling in divots caused by Patriots WR Wes Welker and Chiefs TE Tony Gonzalez as they made cuts to catch balls from Peyton Manning.

Manning, voted the AFC’s starting quarterback for the seventh year in a row, kicked off Pro Bowl week Monday night at a meeting with all the players before they split into separate AFC and NFC meeting rooms. He told the players, 33 of whom were voted to the Pro Bowl for the first time, what to expect this week, how to handle themselves and then, naturally, took the opportunity to pick on his younger brother, Eli, who will suit up for the NFC squad for the first time in his career.

In the NFC locker room, inside the players’ hotel, each player had a Nike rolling suitcase, two pairs of Nike shoes, Nike cleats, a visor, a hat, his team helmet and a practice jersey waiting for him.

After he had given his final interview, Eli Manning searched his area, and then the entire room, looking for his shoes so he could go for a run. He gave up the search rather quickly and settled on a shiny, new pair of cleats and set off to find a treadmill as other players called after him, “How are you going to run in those?”

Back inside the locker room, four chairs remained untouched, as Cardinals QB Kurt Warner, special teamer Sean Morey, WR Anquan Boldin and WR Larry Fitzgerald had yet to arrive. The Super Bowl runners-up — along with three members of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense, who attended the team’s victory parade Tuesday afternoon — should be at practice on Wednesday.
They should really get a lot of money for charity out of the Pro Bowl. If they bothered to exploit it properly.

pauldrulez 04-02-2009 09:38 PM

Off several sources - Sports Network main one

pauldrulez 04-02-2009 09:44 PM

Knew about BO'B weeks ago.

He is going to be the unofficial Offensive Co-ordinator as well.

Think Josh McDaniels in his first year.

Jets OC WANTS Favre back next year. :eek:

And NFL.com also reporting that Cable Guy is officially in.

Do you think the Titans can hang onto Albert Haynesworth this off-season? If not, how will they try to replace him?

Gil Brandt, NFL.com
They have franchised Haynesworth, Sean. He's looking for a long-term deal and the two sides are apart right now. But he will play for Tennessee in 2009, even if it's a one-year deal.
Heard nothing about that. Even his own website mention terms are way apart.

Unless he is referring to last year.

:confused:

peagle 04-02-2009 09:52 PM

paul, how many pats are there on here? if we have 10 we can get it registered as an official fanclub ;)
