    Yeah, so we need a new NFL thread the week before Opening Day, when no meaningful football will be played for almost 6 months??

    Draft, free agent signings, trade, etc.

    Yeah, I know; there is almost no offseason anymore, with the way free agency now works, and the significance and prep the draft now commands.

    As a baseball fan first, it just pains me to see football usurp the entire year now. The NBA playoffs go well into June now, and the NFL preseason starts the end of July/early August. So baseball now has the sports world's primary attention for about 35 days during its 6-month season.

    I understand and sympathize, I lean more towards baseball these days, too.

    I nuked the old thread so we could continue this one. We probably should have started it with the start of free agency but oh well.

    No mention of Bills owner Ralph Wilson dying???

    I heard about it on my way home from work, but don't really know much about him.

    No-shit Knowshon will be an asett to the Fins. He's a very good player.

    As a Jet's fan I am delighted to see "no show" sign with the fins. :laugh:

    Looks like the Raiders are going to try to trade Terrelle Pryor or release him if they can't make a deal. It will be good for both side to have this settles soon, IMO.

    Knowshon was great last year, ending up 5th in the NFL, and is very good as a blocker in the passing game.

    Hell, Trent Richardson could have a great year if his QB is Manning. Who's going to stuff 8 in the box on him?

    His first and only 1000 yard year was last year. He'll be lucky to crack 800.

    And we forgot to put the smack talk in the title. That's the best part. :D

    I like Broncos fans talking smack. It's almost as if they forgot about the Superbowl last year :)

    Don't you have to have a short memory to be a Broncos fan? ;)

    Eagles release DeSean Jackson. Stories say it's because Jackson's "gang affiliations are troubling to the Eagles".

    Sounds like Chip Kelly doesn't want thugs on his team, contrary to all his Oregon teams. ;)

    There are also rumors (and nothing confirmed) that Jackson may be involved in an insurance fraud issue stemming from a "no obvious sings of forced entry" break-in at his condo this winter. To say local sports talk radio has been following this story closely would be an understatement.

    First Vick is gone, now Jackson? Making it easier and easier to root for the team I love!
