I think he would recycle into next year's draft. Basically the Raiders got dibs on him for a year, if he doesn't sign with the Raiders then he goes back into the hopper.

oh, right. i guess i was thinking of some kind of trade, but i can't think of any way to substantiate that value.

That's exactly what happened when Bo Jackson got drafted by the Buccaneers like 20 years ago.
He refused to sign with them and played baseball that year instead and when the next year's draft rolled around, somehow he fell into the Raiders' lap and the rest is (albeit short) history.

Back to Jamarcus, I am really pissed that it took him this long to sign but in the end I'm really really hoping that it will be worth all of that fucking stupid bullshit and that enormous amount of cash he's getting.

Chairman Mau
09-13-2007, 07:19 AM
we'll see. i think that it was an appropriate draft pick to what the raiders need... but i also think it was a bit of a reach.


regardless, any team that had a chance to draft joe thomas and didn't is probably stupid.

Belichick fined 500K, Pats fined 250K, and loss of 1st round draft if they make the playoffs, loss of 2/3rd draft if they don't make the playoffs.

500K? ouch.

I suspected this was being done, but wouldn't it be easier to just do it from the stands with a high powered zoom lens?

not only that, but this has to be out of chik's own pocket. no monetary help from robert kraft or any member of the patriots organization.

i mean, i'm sure he has that kinda money, but that's a hefty fucking fine. i'm actually surprised that didn't come with a suspension.

You know Mangini HAD to had been the one who told on Belichik. After getting spanked by the Patriots twice in a row I bet Mangini dropped an anonymous call to the league offices.

Some speculate that Mangini was the one in charging of the spy cameras when he worked for the Pats.


Man, NFL is such a man soap opera.

atomicscissors
09-14-2007, 03:12 PM
I'm sure lots, if not all, of the teams in the NFL spy in some form or another.

The Pats were caught red-handed and now the rest of the league are piling on and acting like they're Mother Teresa.

SweetArse
09-14-2007, 03:27 PM
This is just another Belichickian ruse. The Pats secured a 2nd first round pick for next year, so it wouldn't matter if they lost one. And they'll only lose the lower pick, assuming the Niners' record isn't better than theirs. The Chargers are going to practice a little lighter now, because everyone's thinking the Pats have only been winning by stealing signals. Meanwhile, his own players are going extra hard with that new chip on their shoulders.

Chairman Mau
09-18-2007, 09:21 PM
fuck the patriots any time. win, lose, or cheat.



this is an interesting season... a lot of things are going unexpectedly, which i like. as much as i hate the broncos, i'll have to hand it to their management for bringing in talent.


i hope that lamar hunt's son fires both herm edwards and carl peterson for doing so much damage to the chiefs... the defense looks good and all, but any team that doesn't invest in their offensive line is downright moronic. and who lets tony richardson leave? i know it was a year or two ago, but i'm still bewildered by that.


i hope the ravens can get some stability in their offense.


the lions, redskins, raiders, vikings, browns, and texans will be interesting. the saints, eagles, giants, chiefs, and rams may not be.

Indeed. My top pet peeve is when a team is down by two-scores and they panic, forget their gameplan, and abandon the run.

Chairman Mau
09-26-2007, 01:38 PM
looks like deuce is hurt now anyway. they can say goodbye to their season.

let's see what griese can do for the bears.

adrian peterson (min) is a beast.

i had expected tony romo to fall off this year, but i was wrong. i still hope he does, though, because i've always hated the cowboys. and texas. jason witten is good, too. or at least looks especially good with terry glenn out.


speaking of which, how bout them texans? mario williams over reggie bush doesn't seem like quite such a bad idea now.



the rams and chiefs are both done for. for the same reason. O-Line. actually, i'm curious to see if the chiefs passing game turns into something less hideous now that first-round WR Bowe is making plays.

* Reporter: “Write the check yet, Randy?”

Moss: “When you’re rich you don’t write checks.”

Reporter: “If you don’t write checks, how do you pay these guys?”

Moss: “Straight cash, homey.”

Reporter: “Randy, are you upset about the fine?”

Moss: “No, cause it ain’t [expletive]. Ain’t nothing but 10 grand. What’s 10 grand to me? Ain’t [expletive] … Next time I might shake my [expletive].”

Almost every Viking they interviewed after these statements said this was just “Randy being Randy.”

OK I know the Patriots are a really, really good football team and everything but could everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE on television please collectively rise up off of New England's nuts and remove their overly eager tongues from that ass?

I've never seen such blatant schoolgirl gushing and shameful cock smoking by NFL commentators in my life.

I guess the Pats are going 16-0 this season and scoring 35+ points per game and destroying whoever is unfortunate enough to win the NFC and everyone else should just mail it in at this point.

So in summary, everyone in the NFL who ISN'T the Patriots:
STOP PLAYING.
YOU GUYS ARE INFERIOR.
THANKS FOR COMING OUT.

Every fan pays their dues. I spent many a childhood Sunday watching the perennial cellar-dwelling Pats and am absolutely basking in this. I think the Pats-Colts were a rivalry even then because they both sucked so bad that even the commentators would be making backhanded compliments like, "Wow, this a great game. Too bad the rest of the country is missing out because these guys have zero national appeal."

FDM
10-07-2007, 02:02 PM
...and the pats are now 5-0. i wonder how much of that is just because we're in a shitty division....jets, bills, dolphins...which makes our strengths all the more apparent.

building on sweetarse's reminiscence, i was a little too young to remember the '85 cinderella year where we got flattened by da bears, but i had to sit thru the "meh" flutie/bledsoe years in the 90's where it was disappointing post-season after disappointing post-season. and yeah, the cheese-bowl loss to the packers sucked, followed by parcells' defection summarily thereafter, which paved the way for pete "jimmy carter" carroll. nice guy, terrible NFL coach. apparently he's doing pretty well at USC now, and more power to him.

so i've waited for a pats dynasty for 20 years or so. i'm not gonna say i've suffered as much as dude's sitting in jimmy o'flanagan's pub'n'eatery in southie for 50 years, but i've had to sit thru some bullshit as a pats fan.

AFC East only accounts for two of the wins. Duh! But it's been a fairly easy schedule so far. The Pats are still in run-up-the-score mode, which is worrisome. That's why we're hated. I expect a Belichickian character-building loss soon.

I guess you're too young to remember that Scott Zolak was our Jesus QB for a while just because he was able to run a single 32-sec game-winning drive against the then hapless Colts. Or that we were *this close* to being the St. Louis Patriots.

And how fucking scary is Brady? Is he supposed to be the perfect human specimen complete with super-sperm?

i think the "stealing signs but really who the fuck cares because they're right there across the field and everybody can see it anyway" thing is enough character building this season. but then again we're playing the colts in a month.

hah, see...all i remember about zolak was he was the second-stringer under bledsoe for 10 years. never really got to see him play other than the odd times bledsoe got taken out. that's kinda weird. so would tom tupa have been the second string qb/place kicker under zolak? hahaha...

yeah....brady's weird like that. nobody expected him to step up the way he did, and honestly i believed that the '02 superbowl was some sort of massive fluke. i'm pretty sure if he wasn't our fucking golden boy, i'd hate him just as much as peyton manning.

Salami Swami

Umm, that Cowboys/Bills game was insane.

Buffalo right now just felt the biggest stomach punch loss of the year I think.

HOW the fuck did they lose that game?
Never mind. I watched it, I know how they lost but it was really fucking lame to see them blow it like that.

Was thoroughly entertaining though, I'll give them that.

Charlie
10-09-2007, 04:58 AM
Is every team gonna do the "icing the kicker" timeout on every game-winning field goal now? They need to make a rule to change that shit. At least the Cowboys kicker made the second attempt to spit in the face Dick Jauron. Sucks to be a Bills fan right now but that sure was a fun game to watch.

golivar
10-09-2007, 11:31 AM
i'm seeing that more and more in college games, too. lame. couple weeks ago they showed urban meyer pull the ref aside and they stood there watching the opposing offense (i think it was lsu?) set up to start the play, and about one second after the kicker steps forward to kick, meyer taps the ref on the shoulder and calls the time-out.

SweetArse
10-09-2007, 03:06 PM
I don't get it. Can they call timeout after the snap? Why don't they just snap earlier so coaches can't anticipate it? Is this new? Icing the kicker is not new in itself.

How 'bout some thanks to the Pats for taking out JP Loserman!

mmmmm, now that's some good stfu T.O.

cowboys succeeded in keeping randy moss pretty quiet today, but they concentrated so much on double/triple teaming him that it left welker and stallworth wide open. moss got robbed on those two td's tho. the incomplete was bullshit, he had possession with both toes inbounds, and the interference call was even more bullshit. fuck a dallas official.

but WE STILL UNDEFEATED, BITCHES.

golivar
10-14-2007, 05:51 PM
not really sure how you can say "fuck a dallas official" when the cowboys got twice as many flags for twice as many yards as the pats. both calls against moss looked pretty legit to me. on that incompletion call, he barely had possession when he fell out of bounds and he clearly dropped it when he hit the ground. and the interference call was good - moss didn't need to push the cowboy defender, moss still would've caught that pass for the TD even without that contact.

i hope we don't lose morris and watson for any games. and hopefully maroney will be healthy by the colts game. the wear and tear might be catching up on morris.

golivar
10-14-2007, 06:03 PM
and did anyone else notice how many NE fans were there? i was surprised by how loud the cheers were when the pats made a good play.

i also heard some pretty loud "let's go red sox" chants in the final minutes of the game. now that's just ridiculous. i swear, sox fans are more obnoxious than yankees fans. i hate how boston fans will take over the parks at away games, giving people shit at camden yards and stuff. if you are an O's fan you shouldn't have to take that garbage at your home field.

sox fans love to feel like the team is the scrappy underdog or something. for christ's sake, the sox spend more money than anyone except for new york.

Heh, I kept rewriting my post- but yeah, nobody stays in New England, but we all keep our sports loyalties. I think it's a mixture of true blue fans being less ashamed and wearing the logos, now that all the teams are top-shelf, and newbies who are bandwagon-ing. I don't have too much of a problem with Brady groupies or cutie Sox fans.

Yankee transplant bandwagoneers are the worst because they're usually Manhattanites who just do it to schmooze.

I met some Newton North peeps at a random house party just last night. Wicked!

re: pats, granted that dallas got plenty of flags, but that was for sloppy mistakes like offsides, and that late hit call....they didn't get (what i still believe are) suspect calls that directly affected the score (especially that pass interference on moss, that was barely a touch, and i suspect it was more just to turn around to catch the pass, rather than pushing the defender away)

re: obnoxious sox fans, pretty much.

Haters = the media looking for a story.

Gamblers such as myself love the run the Pats are on. Can you believe the second half line yesterday was -4?

Sid
10-29-2007, 10:24 AM
^oh i missed that (the -4 second half line). i didn't know you could bet on those things? i would've taken it. you know i almost wagered on the redskins, and i would've when the spread was -17, but then it got moved to -15. what's the line on the colts-pats game? are you taking that one?

Hap
10-29-2007, 10:36 AM
I use Bodog for online bets. I love 2nd half bets.

Colts were also 2nd half -4.5

On Saturday night Western Mich played Eastern Mich. The halftime score was 2 - 3. The over/under in the 2nd half was still 24 points!!!

Sid
10-29-2007, 10:45 AM
Hap, just to clarify, the 2nd half bet has nothing to do with the final score, just the point spread of the 2nd half?

Hap
10-29-2007, 11:40 AM
Correct. 2nd half starts zero to zero.

It bites you in the ass sometimes like with the Chargers yesterday. They had a 30 point lead at halftime. And then they basically ran the ball and played the 3rd string the rest of the game. The halftime line was -4.5 . The 2nd half final was Texans 7 - Chargers 0.

The other thing is that they don't let you tease 2nd half lines.

honestly with golden boy and his aerial weapons in moss, stallworth and welker, we can rest easy on moving the ball forward. still though, maroney was fuckin' dancing a couple times today and even faulk hauled in that last touchdown to take the lead. and even if we switched welker to more of a ground guy, would it be that drastic a shift for him? he's taken a few handoffs already.

and even if there were a couple annoying holding/"unsportsmanlike" calls on the field, that last false start on indy gave us the momentum to take that shit.

and it ain't complete til brady's got the smoking jacket and fez on, and is being fanned with palm fronds by local girls claimed from the city they play that week.

good thing i picked colts with the spread, i was almost going to do mL because of the payoff. i was bitter towards the 2 minute mark because i thought for sure the pats were at least going to go for a field goal. but wait, the pats actually ran the time out! lol, that was too close. it was a good game, colts just have to be able to finish in the red zone. they let that one slip away.

I went 0-6 with my picks for my office's pool thanks in large part to the Saints, the Steelers lethargic 1st half, and the Colts. I should have known all those games were traps. I don't understand why the Colts were playing for the field goal at the end of the game instead of going for the TD. I know they were trying to milk the clock, but wouldn't it be better to be up by more than a field goal? Teams get too conservative at the end of games instead of going for the jugular. In that regard, I gotta give this year's Pats team some props for having some balls.

Maybe I'm just bitter because Manning also caused me to lose this week in my fantasy football league with his putrid performance. 6 INT's!!!

Sid

"inadvertant whistle" brought back to the 20? ouch. reviewing the 3rd down and goal at the end of the game? that was weird. and i agree with Charlie, why not go for the TD? weak man, definitely not something Bellichick would've done.

Yeah, that was some horseshit at the end of that Ravens game and you know it, if you don't you're in denial.

That makes two weeks in a row that the Pats should have lost but oh well. They are really, really good but come on, best team ever? NO fucking way, not impressive the past two weeks at all.

I couldn't believe that the ref called defensive holding on that 4th down play, that was some serious ticky tack type bullshit! Let the fucking guys play for chrissakes, that type of miniscule shit goes on practically every pass play in the NFL and they call it on 4th down with the game on the line? Horseshit, pure and simple. Ahhhh the Ravens had soooo many chances to win but they fucked themselves and the refs fucked them too, shit happens.

I know what you mean, and its funny that you mention the Raiders because I can't help the hatred mostly because I believe that it was the Raiders that made the Pats what they are today, via the Snow Bowl playoff game. If that bullshit never happens, I'm not saying the Pats don't win all those championships, but that shit definitely vaulted them into the stratosphere.

AND, don't get me started on Moss.
I KNEW that once he signed with the Pats that he'd kill it.
I called that shit. I said he'd get comeback player of the year (done deal), lead the league in yards and touchdowns and make the pro bowl while leading the Pats to another championship (all most likely done also). So you're very lucky once again and enjoy incredible success courtesy of the Raiders! Awesome! They basically got him for nothing, what a fucking deal.

You're right also about that time out among other things, the Ravens fucking defensive coordinator called timeout! I thought only the head coach or a player on the field could do that, but I guess not.

part of being a good player and a great team is discipline. the ravens' wilborne knows the rules. he broke them, period. line of scrimmage was at the ravens 13, he was grabbing onto watson past the 8 and well into the end zone. yeah, that stuff goes on all the time in every game, but that's no excuse. i never understood the whole "let the players play" argument. do we really want games to just devolve into anarchy and dirty tricks?

yeah it was the most crucial play of the game, no doubt. but don't you think that is EXACTLY when a play should be the most scrutinized?

and the ravens definitely didn't help their case by throwing tantrums on the field. that just shows their true colors. they had a shitload of penalties throughout the entire game. that goes back to the whole discipline thing. and let's not forget about the lapse in game management when the ravens d-coordinator made that bad timeout call, which basically gave the pats that first down. that wasn't the pats' or the refs' fault.

it's also not the pats fault that the media has such a huge hard-on for them. the players certainly aren't doing anything off-field to encourage it, and in press conferences belichick still sounds annoyed, as if the team is 5-7 or something. they're far from being attention-whores. seriously, it's not their fault the douchebags at espn feel the need to call the pats the best team ever.

i'm still not holding my breath when it comes to the whole 16-0 thing. next week vs the steelers is going to be tough. shit, i wouldn't put it past the dolphins to upset them. it seems like anything can happen in this league nowadays.

amen, son.

actually even the giants have a solid chance at an upset too. like many folks have resigned themselves to say, the undefeated season is purely ego and a place in the record books. all that matters is the championship. we've clinched the division already, we've basically got home field thru every playoff game, i *could* deal with a 15-1, 14-2 season. but i certainly don't want one.

slight tangent, i thought this was an interesting top story this morning on the patriots homepage: 5 Things The Pats Need To Work On. (http://www.patriots.com/search/index.cfm?ac=searchdetail&pid=29429&pcid=43&rss=1)

alright, the two sacks in a row during the ravens game kinda hurt. but brady's protection in the pocket has been top notch. i agree with strengthening the inconsistent running game tho. specially up against the steelers defense this week.

Giants put up a good fight. Killer first half. Shows how if you're relaxed, don't care much, and just play you can do well. But kudos to the Pats for coming from behind and going 16-0. Randy Moss got drilled on that one hit. Still came back. What are those dudes made out of, cement? Anyhow, for some reason I think that Colts are going all the way. Marvin Harrison will be back, and they just extended Bob Sander's contract. The only thing is Dwight Freeney being out will hurt them.

i was impressed by how well rivers did, considering that he could barely walk on that right knee. he did a good job of connecting with chambers and jackson, and it was pissing me off. i was cursing NE's secondary the whole game. with that said, he does have a big mouth and i'm glad the pats finally shut him up.

i'm curious about what happened to tomlinson; that dude is normally pretty damn hardcore, so he must've been really hurting to sit out the whole game like that. i feel bad for him. he's a talented player and he seems like a real good guy. he deserves a trip to the superbowl, without a doubt.

i didn't catch the other game, but i was rooting for the packers, just so that favre can at least retire with the NFC title. i also suspect that the patriots would've faced less of a challenge against the packers, who are a pretty young team right now, than against the giants, who are on fire. hopefully the two week break will cool them off and bring eli back to his normal bumbling self, that bumpkin mouth breather.

It's amazing when you listen to Eli talk and he inspires absolute... what's the opposite of confidence. But I guess he's pretty good with a ball in his hand. This team scares me. They played the Pats pretty close in week 17. A few bad breaks and it's 18-1. McDreamy better shake off that interceptionitis in the next two weeks.

Sid
01-21-2008, 03:18 PM
^hmmm weird, I think he seems totally confident in his interviews. Almost too casual and laid back, like nothing is fazing him. I think a big thing that is helping Eli, is the absence of Jeremy Shockey. He needs to be on Lexapro, he is way to high strung, and bitches like a baby when he doesn't get the ball from Manning. That's just adding more pressure on Eli. Now that he's on injured reserve Eli doesn't have to worry about him.

Pats are opening up at -13.5 already. If anyone plans on laying with the Pats, wait it out, the line will drop. If you're on the Giants, grab the points now while you can. I'd grab the under too before the Sharps bring it under.

that was an amazing game, regardless of the outcome. gotta give credit where it's due, though. congrats to the giants. their D line was just great all night long.

but as a football fan, and not just as a pats fan, it would've been awesome to see NE complete a perfect season. mainly because i don't think we'll see too many teams come close to that in our lifetimes, and also because i was really getting sick of seeing those grumpy old '72 dolphins every year, celebrating whenever the last undefeated team gets its first loss.

this loss would've been easier to swallow if the pats had lost a game or two along the way. it also would've been easier to take if the pats hadn't teased us by getting that td with less than 3 minutes left. they were so close. i had this bad feeling all week that the pats defense would somehow come up short at a crucial time. ugh. they showed glimpses of that for the last month or so, and it finally caught up to them.

i still don't get how this is such a big fucking deal when you could obtain the exact same information with written consent from the NFL. it's the same goddamn shit that goes on, whether you have a writ or not.

and again, defensive signals are something that not only one guy with a camera can see, but dozens, if not hundreds of people in the stands can see. like i said before, it's not like they were tapping the line into the offensive coordinator's booth or something. that shit is out in the open, right on the sidelines.

i don't think the league will give you teams' signals and what they mean, but obviously teams trade game tape all the time, and teams do tape the other team with cameras elsewhere in the stadium.i thought belichick got in trouble because of WHERE the cameraman was, not the fact that he was taping. and didn't goodell specifically warn teams about illegal taping before the season? i don't really know, i didn't really follow the whole controversy.

actually, one good thing to come out of this game is that the giants won a SB without shockey and tiki barber, two shitty teammates. hopefully the pricks at the daily news and ny post will rub that in their faces.

and i do feel bad for junior seau, who i've always respected and felt that he deserved to win a championship to end his career on a high note. i even think moss deserved a ring, mainly because of the change in his attitude this year and the hard work he put in.

i don't know if seau is gonna stay. i have a feeling this end to the season might be too much for him to recover from emotionally. he's a great teammate and all, but he's getting up there in age (39!), same with harrison, bruschi, and even vrabel. there's gonna come a time when, even with all the experience they have, their ages are gonna be a liability for the pats defense, and i think that time is coming up fast. the past few weeks, the media kept talking about how the pats D "bends but doesn't break", well it looks like they finally broke. the team needs to invest in some solid young players in the secondary and linebacker corps this spring.

anyways...two weeks until pitchers and catchers report. GO SOX!

Unless something changed over the past couple of weeks, he's an unrestricted freeagent.

My Bungles, I mean, Bengals did okay in the draft. Would've liked Dorsey or Ellis to clog up the middle at DT, but Keith Rivers should do quite nicely at LB. Felt they reached a little with their two WR picks, but what do I know?

I think the sleeper is DT Jason Shirley. He has some off-the-field issues, but he's a behemoth at 6-5 and 335 lbs.

I'm not a huge Raiders fan, but getting McFadden (even with their deep existing RB corp) was an awesome pick. It would've been interesting, though, if they had taken Dorsey.

CHRIS HENRY IS BACK.

:confused:

08-19-2008, 05:42 AM
Marvin Frazier, one of Chris Henry's representatives, confirmed Tuesday morning that his client is in Cincinnati getting a physical and is expected to sign a contract but can't play or practice in the regular season until the fifth week because he's on the suspended list.

The Bengals don't comment on players until they sign a contract.

A signing indicates that Chad Johnson's sprained shoulder is serious enough that they look to be preparing for the possibility that Johnson could be sidelined for several weeks. Although Johnson insisted Monday night he'll be back for the opener.

But that's not the only injury that has clouded the receiver picture in the last 48 hours. There is also rookie receiver Andre Caldwell's sprained foot and T.J. Houshmandzadeh's hamstring. He's 50-50 at best to play in his first preseason game Saturday night against the Saints, and the Bengals could be forced to sign a receiver in addition to Henry.

Henry became the face of the Bengals' off-field problems that marred the 2006 season and as late as last week head coach Marvin Lewis indicated he was not interested in him.

Frazier said that Henry traveled to the Bengals' Georgetown College training camp a few weeks ago and met with Lewis after the coach put it in as strong as terms as possible on July 22.

"I'm not interested," Lewis told reporters at the Bengals training camp luncheon. "I don't think it would be productive for our football team. You have to be a productive part to be an NFL player, and there's responsibilities to being an NFL player. It's a privilege, it's not a right. There's a lot that comes with being an NFL football player."

Frazier said Henry talked to other clubs, including the Ravens, the opponent in the Sept. 7 regular-season opener that he can't play in because of his four-game suspension.

"It was a family decision more than anything," Frazier said. "They felt like he needed to go someplace where he was going to get support and the Bengals have been tremendous that way. Not only does he know the offense and the guys, but he wants to show people there that he's not the kind of guy they think he is."

Henry is on his third NFL suspension and the Bengals cut him April 3 after his fifth arrest, this one for assault, a charge that was later dropped. He also began last season with a suspension, an eight-gamer for two alcohol-related arrests in the spring of 2006.

"This last incident was proven to be bogus and it was an unfortunate incident because he was doing everything he had to do," Frazier said. "He was suspended for four games because he shouldn't have been there, and I believe he gets it."

Frazier confirmed that Henry is basically broke and says he seems to have undergone a transformation in order to get his life back in order.

"No one has lost more than this young man," Frazier said. "He could have gone the other way. He could have been bitter and complained and moaned. But he's really been great. He's got no choice. You can't run away and hide. You've got to grow up."

Asked if they had considered a change of scenery because of the community and media scrutiny in Cincinnati, Frazier said, "No matter where you go, it's going to be like that for NFL players. That's the way it is.

"Hopefully with the organization giving him another chance, the fans will, too."

Johnson's injury, which involved the shoulder popping out and then back into the joint, the club's withering receiver depth, and the miserable effort on offense in the 27-10 loss to the Lions on Sunday night has apparently won the day despite Henry's notorious track record.

"If you mean by extended period the last two preseason games, that's all it's going to be," Johnson said. "It's great (Henry) is back. He'll be fine."

At least one veteran endorsed the move when it surfaced last week that the Bengals were talking to Henry.

"If he's going to play for anybody in the league, why not here?" asked defensive tackle John Thornton, who served as defensive captain last year. "The Bengals took a lot of crap for him. Why let him go somewhere else, and he goes plays for Dallas and he becomes a superstar? He knows this offense.

"If he screws up, he's done. It's a one-strike policy. If everybody is comfortable, if the NFL is comfortable with it ... in my opinion, as a friend and a player, I think the locker room would light up just to see him back because everybody's been reading about how tough it's been with him with foreclosures and all that."

Henry's stats are seductive. The 6-4, 200-pounder showed a great knack for tracking the long ball by scoring 15 touchdowns on his first 67 catches during his first two seasons in the NFL. His production dipped last year to just two touchdowns in eight games after spending the first eight games on the suspended list.

The Bengals figure to sign Henry to a contract with minimum salaries. Like last year, Henry can practice and play in preseason games before sitting the first month. But since he hasn't been with a team since the Bengals cut him, he may not be ready to play at all in the preseason.

Wow. Must remember avoid all Bengals offensive players in the draft.

I was reading that some scouts now attribute Shaun Alexander's success mainly to the Seattle O-line of yore. Current thinking is that if Alexander wants to play anywhere this season, he may be stuck having to sign for the league minimum.

CINCINNATI -- Maybe receiver Chad Johnson can go by the name that his head coach hates.

Chad Johnson

Johnson

The Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn't return a message left on his cell phone Friday night.

"It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," he told the team's Web site. "Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I'm having fun."

Two years ago, Johnson gave himself the moniker -- a reference in Spanish to his No. 85 -- and put it on the back of his uniform before a game. Quarterback Carson Palmer ripped it off before the kickoff. After the season, coach Marvin Lewis -- who dislikes Johnson's attention-getting stunts -- referred to the receiver as "Ocho Psycho."

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the Bengals had no comment on the matter.

Johnson has been a concern for the Bengals this season. He unsuccessfully lobbied for a trade in the offseason, threatening to sit out if he didn't get his way. When the Bengals refused, he relented and showed up for minicamp, but complained that his right ankle was bothering him.

He had bone spurs removed from the ankle and was limited at the start of training camp. In the second preseason game, he landed awkwardly and temporarily dislocated his left shoulder. Johnson is wearing a harness and expects to play in the season opener against Baltimore.

For some stupid reason, the CBS feed here in NY thought I would want to watch Jets-Dolphins instead. I only caught the "highlights" at halftime and the end. It didn't look like much. The defender guy was sort of driven into Brady's legs by an O-lineman. Brady crumpled and was said to have screamed like a little girl. He limped into the locker room by his own accord, but didn't return, which could be serious, or could be a Belicheck mindfudge.

alright, after getting a chance to peep the
"highlight" after i got back from work today, it really looks more like a really misplaced grope by a defensive lineman who was basically already on the ground. it's not like he was GUNNING for brady's knee or anything, i think he just saw blue pants and made a half-assed lunge.

Week 17, Pats at Buffalo. Both teams are 9-6 and playing for the Wild Card. Cassel goes down in the 1st after a tremendous hit by Aaron Schobel. Camera cuts to Chris Simms putting on his helmet. But wait. Out of the visitor's tunnel. A familiar figure. No 12 jogs on the field to take command of the offense. Belicheck had kept Brady on the roster this whole time and listed him as Doubtful, meanwhile mindfudging the League into thinking Brady had torn his ACL. Brady goes 25 for 27 with 400 yds and 6 TDs, all to Moss. The Pats seize momentum and win out the rest of the games. Soon after, Tom Terrific lifts his 4th Lombardy Trophy high above his head.

Don't bet on it. I mean when things got shitty with the Raiders and the Vikings, Moss wasn't exactly an inspirational figure that rallied the troops.

In fact he was the complete opposite.

If the Patriots make it, I expect someone else to lead the charge.

If our defense is going to continue to play like they did last night, it's going to be a long season.

Al Davis is a FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT, pretty much always has been.

Did Lane Kiffin give away those two fucking games against Buffalo and San Diego?

Don't think so.

Anyway, it doesn't matter who coaches the Raiders, they could dig up Vince fucking Lombardi and put him on the sidelines, they're still going to be a bunch of choking assholes that can't finish a goddamned game.

Buffalo?
San Diego?
The Raiders had them right where they wanted them both times and both times predictably snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

3-1 would have been nice and having the Chargers at 1-3 would have been equally dandy, but those pussies of course had to revert back to what they know best, and that's doing dumb shit and gift-wrapping games for the other team.

I'm numb to this shit already, it stopped surprising me a loooooong time ago.
The team actually shows signs of getting better but right when they appear to be on the verge of doing something positive, the same shit happens again and again and again and again.

Al Davis should be fucking killed. I mean that in the most serious way. I'm talking like someone put a fucking hit out on that motherfucking Crypt Keeper looking piece of shit and allow the team to finally be run by someone that understands modern day football and is not stuck in fucking 1967.
I'm not kidding.
If that dude fucking died, no sane Raider fan ("sane Raider fan" is an oxymoron, I know, I know...) would give a shit. They'd probably have a parade in Oakland to celebrate.

OK, that about sums it up!

I'm not really following the NFL this year. This year for Seattle is, as Sports Illustrated put it, "sportspocalypse now."

The Mariners took either dead last or second to last in all of baseball. I didn't pay attention to the race to the cellar that last week, but we were neck and neck with the Nationals.

After 37 years, the Sonics are now the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Oh yeah, in NCAA football, both WSU And UW are having record seasons of suckitude.

And the Seahawks, just 3 years after playing in the superbowl, are having their worst season since an evil owner ran the team in the ground so he could move the team to LA. In '92, ownership was trying to lose games, and the 'Hawks had a 2 - 16 season. This year, with a huge payroll and a hall-of-fame coach, they're on the same pace. I'm glad I'm not in a fantasy league, so I don't have to turn on ESPN on Sundays.

naw, i'm thinking pats will at least secure a wild card spot this season, and get knocked out in the first round when we take on the jets or the colts or whoever. shit's over and done with. granted, cassel's done a pretty goddamn decent job getting thrown into the shit stew this season, attempting to find his rhythm with receivers, too bad he just can't work out any plays with moss tho. but i guess cassel ain't that "60 yard miracle pass" kinda QB. fair enough.

How about an 8-8 team like the Chargers?
I hate them but it was awesome to see San Diego deal the Donkeys the final humiliating death blow that eliminated them. The Donkeys are so fucking weak, they deserve to have to watch the playoffs on TV with the rest of us.

The Raiders took out Chucky but I didn't enjoy that as much as I thought I would.
As shitty as the Raiders were this year they won some huge games (beat Denver in Denver, beat Tampa in Tampa and also beat the Jets who were very hot at one point).

The Raiders could have been .500 this year if they knew how to finish games, and I say this every year but they should be good next year or at least very decent.

Shit, if the AFC West stays the way it is (sucky), they have a great shot at winning it next season.

if i were to bet, i think i would go steelers -7 and the over 47.

defense wins games, and i think cards hot streak ends here. but man, fitzgerald is unreal. i feel like if warner just throws the ball in his general direction he'll come down with it every time. also, whisenhunt was offensive coordinator for the steelers. i think that puts a coaching advantage for the cardinals.

i mean, unless on sept 14th we hear "CLOMP, CLOMP, CLOMP, click-WHIRRRR" and brady steps out onto the field lookin like this:

on paper.

looks like galloway's got some problems gelling on plays. and that walters dude from oaktown is scarily bad. i'm guessing o'connell gets the backup spot, walters gets put on third string.

the brady-to-moss looks good despite a few sputters. that shit will get back to running the table come first real game though. i can feel it.

motherfucking julian edelman tho, welcome to the team, you weird-ass-name-havin', white-troy-brown you! also that baker dude is pretty solid. i honestly thought that was ben watson on his first td reception!




how about that breaking news during the game, huh? michael vick in philly! if he's stayed in shape, dude has the potential to be an awesome backup qb. i heard they might just stick him at running back tho? weird shit.

faulk had some great carries and receptions. i was kinda disappointed in welker though. after an entire season of being the go-to guy for the short quick route plays, he ended up botching a few easy receptions. watson earned his spot though. dude had a couple great blocks in addition to the mad frenzied 2-minute drill at the end. i'm disappointed in joey galloway too. i dunno if it's just....not enough time on the field for galloway to gel in a live-action, non-practice setting, or what.

well, young inexperienced defense. you know how it is. i hope jerrod mayo bounces back for the next game though.

also, where'd edelman go?

09-15-2009, 07:38 AM
Edelman was on the injured list or something. I think a lot of the incompletes were Brady's fault, so I'm not too worried about the receivers. To me, Galloway is mostly a decoy. On that crazy off chance that he's open way downfield and Brady has oodles of time, he'll get that long bomb. Still can't believe that Bills returner came out of the end zone like that, only to get punished by Meriwether, stripped, and then freakin' little Gostkowski recovered.

Yep, Beli-smartguy (maybe no genius?) took the risk. I think I can see his logic. Defense was tired. It was a non-divisional game. Looked like Brady was begging to go for it. Maybe he saw something. What angered me was that the defense was still tackling after they didn't get the yards. They should have let the Colts stroll in. Give them the quick points so Brady has some time to put it in field goal range. Belichick is Keith Hernandez.

And the Pacers beat the C's.

yeah it was a gamble but if they had been able to convert it would've sealed the game, so i agree with you, i can see belichick's logic behind the call. it seemed like such an easy play too, i'm surprised faulk juggled the ball and couldn't squeeze out that one yard he needed. oh well. i'll grudgingly take a reg season loss if it means the pats can come back in the playoffs (with a bit more experience and stamina under the D's belt) and knock off the colts.

see, they DID convert it. welker caught the ball BEYOND the 30, even. and even if the refs were dicks and spotted the ball where welker landed, he landed RIGHT ON the 30. he got the first down, what belichick did wrong was NOT CHALLENGE before the 2 minute warning. they had one time out left, might as well use it, and then regain composure for the last 2 minutes and march on in with a tried-and-tested drill. ah well.

Faulk caught the ball, not Welker. He *may* have broken the plane when he caught it, but he bobbled the ball and was pushed back, landing well short of the yellow line. Belichick could not challenge because they used their last time out drawing up this play.

I blame Lawrence "stutter step and then dive into large piles of humanity" Maroney more for fumbling at the goal line. This guy can never seem to get that extra yard. He gets tripped up if someone breathes on him. Faulk would bust through walls (or spin around them) to get an inch.

ah, i thought saw 83, not 33. we were pretty much beside ourselves watching the last 2 minutes. maroney's fumble definitely hurt, but what was up with belichik's earlier decision to just settle for a fucking field goal and only be ahead by 6???

i feel bad for tomlinson. by all accounts, he's a stand-up guy, and i think he deserves a superbowl ring. he's a future hall of famer, no doubt, but a championship would be the icing on the cake for his career. he's coming up on 10 yrs in the league, and i'm not sure he has too many left in him. seems like every season the chargers get so close to the SB, only to miss it by that much.

i do get a perverse pleasure in watching rivers lose, though. i think that guy's a little bitch. he talks so much shit during the game, and i just think that takes a lot away from his leadership.

a chargers/saints superbowl with a saints win would've been cool, though, as brees would be vindicated against the team that was too quick to get rid of him only a few years ago.

barring a miracle, i think we all know the colts are gonna destroy the jets next week, so the vikes/saints game is gonna be the one to watch. right now it seems like it could go either way. the vikings front four has the potential to really harass brees and flush him out, and he's not the best out-of-pocket qb.
