Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

I'm so very pissed at Denver right now. First they are willing to release Marshall for 6 pennies and a pack of cigarettes. Then they released Andra Davis (who I thought did a pretty good job this season). Now they've given the Browns Hillis and 2 draft picks for Quinn. God, why Hillis? Give them Moreno.... the guy has potential to be scary, but if you even look at him funny, then he's going down for little-to-no yards. The only good things I can say about any of this is if Seattle takes Marshall, we'll get the 6th draft pick (though we can still get so much more out of him... or better yet, keep him!), and also that we should now have something that we can pretend is a backup QB. Buh-bye Simms!!

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

So LT signs a 2 year contract with the Jets. Good for him. He is still at the back end of his career unfortunately, but at least he found a team quickly.

LT was in Minnesota the day before he talked to the Jets. I guess he wasn't willing to be a third down back and sit on the bench most of the game. The Jets are probably a better fit for him. And with the incentives in the contract, he could end up making a lot more money than he could with the Vikes.

Considering the relative success the Jets saw with Thomas Jones (who was cast off by the Bears), maybe they'll see a similar resurgence with LT.

I hope Big Ben is innocent of sexual assault in the 2 cases pending against him.

It's not Ben's fault, these girls pretty much sexually assault themselves!

Seriously though, even if he's not a rapist, he's a total dumbfuck. Glad I never liked him.

^Which is why I said "stupid" teenage girls. They're most likely after the money rather than trying to get him locked up.

I never liked him much either, but he's got a target painted on him and he's gotta act smarter, even if he isn't smart.

NFL adopts new playoff overtime rule. If you only score a field goal, you have to kick off to the other team now.

^Not quite what I imagine as the ideal overtime, but it's a step in the right direction. Just wish they had applied it to the regular season as well.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

I can't believe that idiotic thing passed. What a dumb rule.

What's next. Oh, uh you know get 5 downs in the postseason, or something else ridiculous.

Was anyone actually in favor of that?

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

Just make is so that if the score is tied at the end of a game, both teams are awarded a loss. In the playoffs make them play two ten minute periods with a kickoff at the beginning of each. Done and done. This new system sounds a little stupid, and I thought it was fine the way it was.
