Incidentally I'd class Manning's comment about "insulin shots" as being ignorant and worse in terms of seriousness and stupidity than McNabb's comments regarding overtime rules in the event of a tie. Go and do a day's work for a diabetes charity rather than selling out to attend some kid's Bar Mitzvah, or at least put on a Parka before doing aeroplane impressions at the line of scrimmage.

(And... exhale!)

Entirely agree with you. Both my father and my father in law are diabetics, one worse than the other admittadely. A clear case of not engaging brain before opening mouth .... which a lot of players suffer from sadly ...

Didn't Boldin say he'd never re-sign with the Cardinals? That'll be something to watch this offseason, although I'm not sure what his contract status is or whether or not the Cardinals will franchise him.

Interesting stuff from Mike Lombardi this week on the BS Report. He thinks that 2010 being played without a salary cap suits the owners, not the players. Apparently along with there being no cap there is no salary floor, and so it is an opportunity for teams which are struggling financially to balance the books.

Anything that doesn't involve 3 TE's :rolleyes:

The best play of the season?

Not a single play, but the game winning drive in the SB, 88 yards in 2.24, amazing

League(not team) Moment of the season?

Lions going 0-16, abolutely pathetic

Team MVP?

Dick LeBeau, legend

League MVP?

Ben Roethlisberger, after still getting it done with that shambles of an Oline

Superbowl 44 winner?

These last questions are a bit hard to predict before free agency and the draft, but I believe if the Vikings can sort out their QB position they have a team that could go all the way, thats a big if though

Runner-up?

Houston Texans? :eek: They have collected quite a good young team, stranger things have happened

Most improvement in a team in 09?

Kansas City

Why does everyone expect the Vikings to do well next year? If they've still got Childress and Jackson/Frerotte the best they're doing is to win the NFC North again and bomb out in the first round.

Adrian Peterson, their o-line and defence deserve better.

Not that I'm sure which of the available top line coaches they would be best off going for, so I'll open that question to the floor.

pauldrulez 06-02-2009 08:33 PM

I dont want to mention it again, but I see Cassel at the Vikings and for that reason I think they will do well.

But this wasn't intended to cause arguments ;)

I think anyone better than Tarvaris/Frerotte would get them to the Superbowl with the rest of that team.

But, if they could get one more quality Receiver as well, they would be certainties for their division and possibly the Championship.

In my opinion of course.

Strathclyde Eagle 06-02-2009 10:05 PM

If he does he'll still have Childress on the sidelines as his coach. I think that's a bigger problem.

Everyone can now knock themselves out on the Holmes/catch photos:

All thats done is confuse me even more.

On one pic, i'm sure he's down, I look up and he doesn't have the ball :D

But in one i'm certain he has the ball and his feet down. Until I copied it into paint and tried to get as close as possible. I think I see a gap, but it could be an optical illusion.

Aaaaaaahhhh, so confused :afro:

peagle 06-02-2009 10:25 PM

I have just accepted it was in and am no longer going to view pictures such as that... the decision has been made anyway.

Benzhiyi 06-02-2009 11:45 PM

Cassel is not the answer in Minnesota.

That's not to say they won't trade for him, but if they do, they can enjoy going 5-11.

If 5-11 is what would happen, I am in favor if this move :p

What is your teams favourite play?

Matt Stovers winning kick versus Titans in the play offs, thought they were amazing to win that game, great courage and determination all game.

Close second being the fake punt and two late long touchdowns versus the Cowboys in week 16.

The best play of the season?


Haven't got a clue what game, but it was a pick that Troy Polimero (Sp?) made against someone early on, top catch and despite him being a Steeler is one of my favourite players.

League(not team) Moment of the season?

Decline of the Patriots was good for the league.

Team MVP?

Ed Reed

League MVP?

Troy Polimero

Superbowl 44 winner?

Jets (Rex will sort them out)

Runner-up?

Cowboys (unfortunately maybe with Ray Lewis leading them)

Most improvement in a team in 09?

49ers

Source? Or pure speculation? I read that and was quite excited by the thought ....

Watched an interview with DeMarcus Ware on Total Access last night in Hawaii. Great interview and one thing stands out a mile for me. Why was he not considered a decent shout for MVP of the season? I know there have been some great performances this season, admitadley. But it seems that 20+ sacks in a season has only been done 6 times so quite a feat.

Worrying to think he has only one year of his contract left so free agency could be around the corner for him if Jerry Jones doesn't get his finger out. Am I right?

He's a legend for me and I need to obtain a shirt sooner rather than later as I'm getting rather embarrased to wear my Romo one .. ;)
