I'd really like it if Denver drafted Michigan DT Mike Martin in the upcoming draft.

I'd take him Round 4 and look around like I stole something.

He's only around 6'2 and right around 300 pounds and his measurables aren't going to blow anyone away, but put on the tape and watch him play....especially this year after Greg Mattison worked with him.

I've heard some project him as a 4th/5th round prospect....but I could easily see his stock rising in the next few months, as he has been a disruptive force this year.

Fred Davis, Trent Williams leave without speaking to media

Redskins tight end Fred Davis and tackle Trent Williams played their final games of the 2011 season in Sunday’s 34-19 loss to the Jets.

Both players are facing four-game suspensions for violating the league’s drug policy, a suspension both knew was coming but wasn’t implemented until after the game because they weren’t given official notification before kickoff. It was a hot topic in the locker room after the game, although neither player shared their thoughts with the media.

Ryan O’Halloran of CSNWashington.com reports that Davis and Williams showered and dressed in the coaches room before being escorted out of the building by security. So we will have to wait to find out about their previous violations of the policy, as players are only suspended after multiple incidents, and what exactly possessed them to keep using banned drugs after they were given a free pass for testing positive during the 30-day grace period granted to players after the settlement of the lockout.

The NFL has announced the four-game suspensions for Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams for violating the league's substance abuse policy.


Seattle Seahawks rookie guard John Moffitt has also been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The suspensions had been expected. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Sunday that Davis and Williams were expecting to be penalized after failing multiple drug tests. The person spoke anonymously because of the confidential nature of the league's drug testing policy.

Moffitt will serve his suspension beginning immediately, even though he is currently on injured reserve and out for the season with a right knee injury.

The specifics of why Moffitt was suspended were not released.

Moffitt was Seattle's third-round pick in last April's draft out of Wisconsin and started the first nine games at right guard before suffering a pair of torn knee ligaments in Seattle's Week 10 win over Baltimore. He's one of three starting offensive linemen currently on injured reserve for the Seahawks, along with right tackle James Carpenter and left tackle Russell Okung.

Dan Marino's single season record of 5,084 passing yards, set in 1984, is almost sure to go down this year.

I know it's a different league, with different rules, but it's still interesting to see a record that has stood for 27 years ready to be erased.

5,084 yards in 16 games is 317.75 yards passing per game.

There are 4 QBs who can challenge that this year.

All 4 QBs have 3 games left to play, if they stay healthy.

Drew Brees has 4,368 yards passing....336 yard per game. On pace for 5,376 yard passing. To beat Dan Marino's record, Brees will only have to average 239 yards passing per game (717 yards/3 games).

Tom Brady isn't far behind. Brady has 4,273 yards passing....329 yards per game. On pace for 5,260 yards. To beat Dan Marino's record, Brady will only have to average 271 yards passing per game (813 yards/3 games).

The other 2 QBs who have a shot are:

Aaron Rodgers with 4,125 yards....but I think they will sit him for a few quarters down the stretch if they have their games in hand.

Eli Manning is slightly under Dan Marino's pace, with 4,105 yards (316 yards per game). He may have a shot, but either Drew Brees or Tom Brady will probably hold the record at the end of the year.

I guess I wouldn't mind seeing Drew Brees own the record....he was very close in 2008 with 5,069 yards and would then have 2 seasons with over 5,000 yards passing.

Denver's style is unorthodox for sure, but when you can run the ball you keep your defense rested and the other team's offense off the field.

I probably shouldn't have used Denver as an example....but it's a copy cat league and running the ball a lot and controlling the clock will make a big comeback sooner or later.

This is a myth that for some reason continues to spread. Running the ball in and of itself does not in any way guarantee any more rest for your defense than passing the ball does. Regardless of systems/coaches/QBs over the last year, our defense has been out there between 64-66 plays per game.

Also remember that Raheem Morris (Rahim Moore, lol) was a part of that "HC Class", not sure if he will keep his job in TB. Schwartz was part of that class as well, no? Looks like he could be the only that survives as a HC beyond this year.

Gonna have a lot of moves again this year. St. Louis, San Diego, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Miami, Jacksonville... and possibly Dallas and Philly.

A few end of the season notes:

3 QBs went over the 5,000 yard passing mark.

2 broke Dan Marino's record. Drew Brees- 5,476 yards, Tom Brady - 5,235 yards, and Matthew Stafford quietly threw for 5,038 yards.

Props to Stafford on a great season....5,038 passing yards with 41 TDs and 16 INTs. I knew he would be a great QB....if he could stay healthy.

MJD led the league with 1,606 rushing yards. Dude is a little beast. 6 years in the league and MJD has 74 TDs (rushing, receiving, and returns).

Willis McGahee ended up 8th in the NFL with 1,199 yards.

2 WRs hit the 100 reception mark: Wes Welker with 122 and Roddy White with 100.

3rd was TE Jimmy Graham, who had 99 receptions with New Orleans.

That said, Rob Gronkowski had the best year ever at the TE position: 90 receptions for 1,327 yards and 18 TDs (17 receiving and 1 rushing).

Calvin Johnson probably had the best all around year at the WR position in 2011 with 96 receptions for 1,681 yards and 16 TDs.

San Francisco kicker David Akers set the all-time single season FG mark with 44 FGs in a season and ended up with 166 points on the year.

What a versatile weapon Darren Sproles is for New Orleans....87 carries for 603 yards rushing (6.3 yards per carry) and 2 TDs. 86 receptions for 710 yards and 7 TDs through the air. 294 punt return yards and a TD. 1,089 kickoff return yards. That is a total of 2,696 all-purpose yards and 10 total TDs.

3 players had 7 INTs to lead the league: Charles Woodson, Eric Weddle, and Kyle Arrington.

Charles Woodson has had an incredible 6 years with Green Bay:

6 years with the Pack: 37 INTs (over 6 a year on average). 14 forced fumbles, 10 sacks, and 10 TDs.

Jared Allen came within .5 sacks of the single season sack record. Allen ended up with 22 sacks on the year. DeMarcus Ware had another dominating season with 19.5 sacks, and Jason Babin continued to resurrect his career with 18.0 sacks. Jason Pierre-Paul is proving worthy of being a 1st round pick by notching 16.5 sacks for the Giants.

It was rookie Aldon Smith of San Francisco who made a run at the rookie sack record....not Von Miller. Smith came up .5 sacks shy of the record, but still racked up 14.0 sacks on the year.

Jared Allen came within .5 sacks of the single season sack record. Allen ended up with 22 sacks on the year. DeMarcus Ware had another dominating season with 19.5 sacks, and Jason Babin continued to resurrect his career with 18.0 sacks. Jason Pierre-Paul is proving worthy of being a 1st round pick by notching 16.5 sacks for the Giants.

It was rookie Aldon Smith of San Francisco who made a run at the rookie sack record....not Von Miller. Smith came up .5 sacks shy of the record, but still racked up 14.0 sacks on the year.

^ Sack numbers getting inflated around the league due to more of a "passing game". Especially Allen in the NFCN.

I was looking through some stats and noticed that with 444 yards rushing in 2011, Ricky Williams went over the 10,000 rushing yardage mark for his career, becoming the 26th RB to attain that plateau.

Not bad for a dude who basically missed 3 full years in the prime of his playing career due to drug related suspensions and injuries.

Props to Ricky....at least he's a dude that's always done it his way.

Ricky is signed through next year and is a nice compliment to Ray Rice. Ricky still has some fresh legs and is capable of being a work horse again for a handful of games in a row, if called upon.

Detroit kicker Jason Hanson quietly became the 6th player to score over 2,000 points in an NFL career.

Hanson is 4th overall, with 2016 points.

He is the only player in the 2,000 point club to achieve it with one team.

Morten Andersen (1982-2007) is the all-time leader with 2,544 points.

Jason Elam is 7th overall with 1,983 career points.

If Elam wouldn't have struggled at the end of the 2009 season, he would probably be in the 2,000 point club.

Speaking of Lions, Calvin Johnson had a remarkable season.

12 receptions for 211 yards and 2 TDs in the playoff loss tonight.

96 receptions for 1,681 yards and 16 TDs during the regular season.

CJ's 1,681 receiving yards is the 7th highest single season total of all-time.

A little nugget of info - those 1,681 yards are the 7th most all-time, but still doesn't set the Lions single season mark. Former Lions WR Herman Moore is 6th all-time with 1,686 yards in 1995.

Even more interesting....1995 is the owner of 3 of the highest 6 single season all-time WR yardage marks:

1: Jerry Rice 1,848 yards in 1995
2: Isaac Bruce 1,781 yards in 1995
3: Charley Hennigan, 1,746 yards in 1961
4: Marvin Harrison, 1,722 yards in 2002

Not only were 3 of the top 6 seasons in 1995, the 12th highest yardage total also happened in 1995 by Micheal Irvin (1,603 yards).

1: Jerry Rice 1,848 yards in 1995
2: Isaac Bruce 1,781 yards in 1995
3: Charley Hennigan, 1,746 yards in 1961
4: Marvin Harrison, 1,722 yards in 2002
5: Torry Holt, 1,696 yards in 2003
6: Herman Moore, 1,686 yards in 1995

12: Michael Irvin, 1,603 yards in 1995

So 3 of the top 6 and 4 of the top 12 highest single season receiving yardage totals happened in 1995.

It's actually kind of surprising that no current WR has topped Jerry Rice's mark of 1,848 yards with the way the rules have been changed and the way the passing game has evolved.

One of these years, a freak like Calvin Johnson will break the 2,000 yard barrier.

Thanks....I've always been a stats freak and am always aware of where players stand from a historical perspective and measuring tool.

I think it all started when I was a kid and collected football cards and I would memorize and regurgitate all the stats for each player.

I remember having an old O.J. Simpson card and being infatuated with his 2,003 yard season on the back of his card. Then, when I was 12, and in the prime of my card collecting years, Eric Dickerson ran for 2,105 yards and I thought that was incredible.

We'll see. Maybe it's a story of possession passing games bringing these numbers down. It would be an interesting conversation anyway. Nowadays with teams spreading out 4 wides with pass catching RB's plus the prevalence of pass catching TE's, maybe there are just too many receivers on the field for any one of them to grab those kind of numbers?

I was never a particular fan of his (probably through a lack of exposure) so it wouldn't have been accurate for me to say one of MY all time greats but somewhere in between. I do agree that for things like the HOF, personal matters probably shouldn't come into consideration.

I'm also disappointed Barry Sanders walked away when he did.

Both could've been the best ever. But they're not. At least not statistically though Barry definitely has more achievements under his belt.

IIRC he did not want to break his friends records..

I've never heard that justification. I always thought it was issues with Bobby Ross but Wiki says this which I've never heard before either:

Several years after retirement, and repeated refusals to discuss the abruptness of it, Sanders finally admitted that the culture of losing in the Lions' organization was too much to deal with even though he said that he could still play. He explained that it robbed him of his competitive spirit, and he saw no reason to believe things were going to improve. Although Detroit had made the playoffs in five of his ten seasons, including the season prior to his retirement (losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-10 on the road in a 1998 NFC Wild Card game), Detroit drafted quarterback Charlie Batch in the second round of the 1998 NFL Draft. It became apparent that Batch would become Detroit's full time starter the next season, and Sanders seemed unwilling to embrace yet another change in the Lions' seemingly endless carousel of quarterbacks and offensive philosophies. He had also gone on record to criticize Detroit's front office (most notably Chuck Schmidt) for releasing Pro Bowl center Kevin Glover for salary cap reasons. Glover was an underrated player and close friend of Sanders. He stated there were tears in his eyes as the Lions lost in the playoffs to Tampa Bay in 1998, because he knew in his heart he was never going to play another playoff game for Detroit. "I sobbed for 3 months," Sanders said.[10]

Interesting. At the time he retired he publicly stated he had so much respect for sweetness he felt his record should stand and he did not want to be the one who broke them.

He for the most part was a one man Show and frankly the OL was pretty pathetic. IIRC he is a leader in being tackled for a loss..

So I have to wonder about what wiki is saying. Since anyone can modify that area.

I know that DET was a team I watched whenever I could just to see that kid run. His ability to stop on a dime and go another direction probably cause a lot of sprained ankles on the opposing teams.

But thanks for sharing that I'd never heard that story before.

I didn't realize that Willis McGahee is only the 2nd player in NFL history to reach 1,000+ yards with 3 different teams. McGahee did it with Buffalo, Baltimore, and Denver.

The other back to reach that mark?

Ricky Watters, with San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Seattle.

Looking back, Ricky Watters had a damn good career.

7 season of over 1,000 yards....5 of them were over 1,200 yards.

10,643 career rushing yards with 78 rushing TDs.

Every bit as impressive are his receiving stats.

467 career receptions for 4,248 receiving yards and 13 receiving TDs....5 seasons of 50+ receptions.

Basically, he had about 15,000 yards between rushing/receiving and over 90 TDs.

Police: Lions’ Mikel Leshoure Tried To Eat Marijuana To Avoid Bust
DETROIT LIONS, MIKEL LESHOURE, NFL | COMMENTS

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was arraigned today after allegedly attempting to eat marijuana in his possession in order to avoid a citation, according to USA Today.

The citation was issued on March 12 when Leshoure was a passenger in a rented 2012 Mitsubishi SUV that was pulled over while driving westbound on I-94 in the southwestern part of Michigan. This was Leshoure’s second run in with the police in regards to a substance related citation.

“My guy stops him, he’s a passenger in the car, you’ll read the report, and when my guy’s approaching the car Mr. Leshoure’s trying to eat it,” Baroda Lake Twp. chief Gary Ruhl said. “It was just enough for personal use.”

Leshoure missed all of his NFL rookie with a torn Achilles tendon. He was drafted to the Lions in the second round and was the 57th pick overall. He won the 2011 CFPA Running Back trophy at Illinois and was also second-team All-American.

Smith, who was born in Penrith in Australia but also played college basketball for Metropolitan State in Denver, has been signed to play the offence position of ‘tight-end’ after the Jets were hugely impressed by the agility and speed of the 6ft 7ins forward during their fitness tests.

“The most prominent test is the 40-yard dash and some agility drills, like a three-cone drill and a 20-yard drill. I managed to run 4.75 seconds for the 40-yard dash, which turned some heads,” said Smith, who joined Saracens in 2008.

...Dan Pompei says the Broncos' acquisition of Peyton Manning, their trade of Tim Tebow to New Jersey, the signings of Alex Smith in San Francisco and Matt Flynn with Seattle, and Shanny's trade up to the #2 pick have created a sense of desperation for the teams that failed to land a big QB fish this offseason.

And the potential outcome of this urgency is A&M passer Ryan Tannehill flying up draft boards, perhaps even into the top five or ten picks to the Browns at four, Dolphins at eight, or the Chiefs at #11. Why? Because it's all about quarterbacks in this league, as the last nine Super Bowls have been won by the Manning brothers (three combined), Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger (two each), Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees (one each).

Adam Teicher says that after having passed up on Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez, and Josh Freeman in recent years, Tannehill could be the guy that makes KC pounce. As Teicher sees it, the Chiefs roster has few holes, with QB being perhaps the most glaring one.

Every year some team over drafts a QB and this year that QB will be Tannehill. He's a nice prospect with lots of upside. Unfortunately for him, he won't get the huge rookie contract that picks got a few years ago, but if he's drafted high, he will almost certainly be thrown to the wolves so to speak.

Yeah, I don't think the Broncos were all that willing to bring back McBean especially with that 6 game suspension on his head. Now if he would have been available or free agent after the the suspension maybe the Broncos would have looked at bringing him back.

Hargrove document: I was told to lie

Former New Orleans Saint Anthony Hargrove (center) submitted a declaration stating Saints coaches instructed him to lie about the team's bounty system. / File/The Times

That documentation which current and former Saints players may seek in fighting their bounty-related suspensions? It's already beginning to surface, and not necessarily to their advantage.

Yahoo! Sports has unearthed evidence revealing that former New Orleans (and current Packers) defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, who's facing an eight-game ban this season, was told to lie about the existence of the program by former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams (who's suspended indefinitely) and current assistant/interim head coach Joe Vitt (who will miss six games once the regular season starts).

Yahoo! obtained a signed declaration Hargrove submitted to the NFL, via the NFL players association no less, in April in which he admits being told to cover up the program. Vitt and Williams allegedly warned Hargrove, who played for the Saints in 2009 and 2010, of the league's investigation while instructing him to deny any knowledge of it. Williams said, per Hargove's declaraton: "Those (expletives at the NFL) have been trying to get me for years (and if all the Saints) stay on the same page, this will blow over."

Hargrove was called into the 30-minute meeting following Super Bowl XLIV under the auspices of an increased role in Williams' defense in 2010, though that never came to fruition.

The union apparently provided the document to the league for the purpose of showing one of its members was acting under orders from coaches, though it may only serve to bolster the NFL's case regarding the Saints' use of bounties and their subsequent dishonesty in trying to keep them under wraps.

If you were crossing your fingers in hopes that Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor’s injury wasn’t a torn pectoral muscle, you can go ahead and stop now.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur confirmed the worst on Friday when he said that Taylor did tear his left pectoral muscle while working out on Thursday. Shurmur said that Taylor would have surgery next week and resisted putting a firm timeline on his expected recovery.

That's a big loss for the Browns....he played well last year as a rookie.

McNabb is working out with QB coach George Whitfield Jr with hopes to get back into the NFL. I think we have a good idea who the next Jeff George is.

He does look about 15 to 20 pounds lighter.
