    Clinton Portis, Tamarick Vanover and Robert McCune pleaded guilty to defrauding an NFL program set up to reimburse medical expenses not covered by insurance for retired players and their families.

    McCune could be facing life in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and health care fraud, 13 counts of health care fraud, 11 counts of wire fraud and three counts of aggravated identity theft.

    Portis and Vanover each pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud and could face up to 10 years in prison.

    Well Gentlemen,

    The High Holy Season is upon us. Let us pause and give thanks to the Football Gods for this glorious time.

    May your starters be healthy, may replays go your way, and may your hearts prepared for crushing defeats.

    Not about the NFL, but did you see in that Louisville-Ole Miss game that the Louisville QB was the team's leading passer, rusher and receiver at the half?

    Injury bug has really bitten the Ravens running back group. They've lost Dobbins, Edwards and someone else that I can't recall their name off of the top of my head.

    Yeah!!!

    I meant sorry to hear about that. :confused:

    They are still the old stinkin' Cleveland Browns to me, but Modell should never have stolen them and run South to Baltimore, which was the home of Johnny U. and them Colts.

    I would rather see good players play than be injured.

    Buccaneers get the win 31-29 over the Cowboys in the season opener. Dallas gave them a much better game than most people expected. In fact, Bucs are the first team in NFL history "to lose the turnover margin by at least 3, incur 100 penalty yards, allow 450 yards, and still win the game". Cowboys took the lead late but not late enough, leaving Tom Brady too much time to come back. Never a good idea.

    The game wasn't without reffing controversy - but this is the NFL, so what else is new?

    That was a nail-biter of a game. Awesome season opener.

    Kind of torn about this one, though... On the one hand, Brady won (ick), but on the other hand, my team's main division rival is now 0-1, which is obviously a good thing to me. So I think I can live with it. :)

    To be fair, though, I don't find watching the Brady/Gronk show nearly as distasteful these days now as I did when they were in NE. I think the Brady/Belichick pairing seemed to be a lot more toxically vile then than what they've become after being on their own. I loved the fact that Brady told Belichick to go pound sand, proving that the latter needed the former far more than the other way around. Belichick's arrogance and inflexibility cost him dearly. That is good.

    I wouldn’t dismiss Belichick just yet.
