Besides the Super Bowl, about the only football-related thing I watch is the NFL kickoff show. This year, we have the good fortune to have Keith Urban as one of the performers.

Damnit, more Brett Farve crap. Dude needs to just Let. It. Go. He's turned into the biggest drama queen since T.O.

Re: NFL Football - 2008-09 Season Discussion

How quickly teams' fortunes (specifically, the Jaguars) change.

Reggie Williams (WR) is out through the whole preaseason with a knee injury.
Jerry Porter (WR) is out through the whole preaseason with a hamstring injury.
Matt Jones (WR) is likely to be cut due to pending charges of a felony posession of cocaine and a severe lack of talent.

Which leaves our #1 receiver as....Troy Williamson. Even as a diehard Gamecocks fan, this thought scares me to death. We've also got Mike Williams (out all last year with injuries), John Broussard (old and more of a pass returner), and Dennis Northcutt (missed half of last year with injuries). Oh. Joy.

Re: NFL Football - 2008-09 Season Discussion

The Texans foolishly signed another injury prone running back during the off season, Chris Brown from the Titans. He's already missing time in training camp because of injuries. Aman Green is doing fairly well though, but I don't think that will last. After those two, we got rookies and 2nd year players.

Gibbs had better do a good job with the O-line and teaching them the ZBS and cut blocking or the Texans will be in the bottom of the league in running again.

To show how bad things are, the Texans are giving a try out to Mike Bell, the cast off from Denver.

If Troy Williamson is your best receiver, that's a sorry state of affairs. The guy has the hands of a lobster. You'd better hope Northcutt stays healthy.

Amen.

I don't know what it's like around the country, but here in Wisconsin, you can't turn on the TV without hearing the latest tidbit about "Favre's Future?". They're rehashing the same shit over and over and over again.

And now there's this marketing deal that would keep him off the field, yada, yada, yada, YAWN! He seriously needs to go away.

As for Rodgers....eh. I'm not too optimistic about the Packers this year. If you look at Rodgers the wrong way he pulls a hamstring. It's gonna take a while for my team to regain its strength (MINUS FAVRE!!!).

Re: NFL Football - 2008-09 Season Discussion

And in NFL news that I care about, the NFL Hall of Fame induction is tomorrow and another great 49er is going, Fred Dean. I never got to see him play, but he was around during the early Bill Walsh era and that be default deserves great respect. I'm also glad Monk is going in, but I'm afraid I don't know too much about the others. Will anyone be watching these ceremonies tomorrow?

I'm not sure anyone can out-drama queen T.O. but Farve is at least in second place. What a fiasco.

One piece of advice for Jaguars fans from an old Vikings dude:

Duct tape.

Re: NFL Football - 2008-09 Season Discussion

Sounds like Broncos are letting Lynch go. It really sucks that that's happening... the guy's been having great seasons, he takes a paycut to stay in Denver, and then Shanny reduces his playtime. Lynch was one of my favorites too. So, no more Lynch, no more Elam, no more Sharpe (though I do think that's the best thing for him). I hope Marshall is feeling 100%.

I didn't watch all of the game, but I did see some of Colt Brennan play. Not bad. Not bad at all. I had my doubts as to whether he'd make it in the NFL. There's a long way to go and a whole lotta better defensive players to go against. But I thought he looked alright out there.

Re: NFL Football - 2008-09 Season Discussion

Well, preseason has started. It's a nice time to get ridiculously excited about games only to realize halfway through how boring they are. It is a battle of PA teams for me to watch on Friday, which might make it somewhat worthwhile when AJ Feeley is throwing to Shaheer McBride with 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter against the 3rd string Steelers defense.
