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

Meh, with all the rules meant to help QBs and the way refs let linemen hold pass rushers constantly, I'm not seeing it. Would need to see league-wide sack totals over the years to really come to such a conclusion.

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
5: Torry Holt, 1,696 yards in 2003

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?

The only drug that sours me on a player is the performance enhancing kind. Players are just men. Some are devoutly religious and live perfect lives, others are complete garbage and borderline insane.

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.

Both are Rutgers products.

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.

Hargrove document: I was told to lie
2:52 PM, May. 7, 2012 | Comments

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.

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans announced contract extensions Thursday for general manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak, rewarding them for taking the team to the playoffs last year for the first time.

Texans owner Bob McNair wanted to maintain continuity with both men in the final years of their current contracts. Smith's extension is for four years, which will keep him with the team through 2016. Kubiak's is a three-year agreement which re-does the last year of his current deal and keeps him under contract through 2014.

Pacman is still playing in the NFL for the Bengals.

They will probably try and take or negotiate a certain percentage of his salary that will be taken out to start and pay this money that he owes.

As long as he is making some money and playing in the NFL, he will probably always get a certain percentage of it deducted for this lawsuit.

They will most likely never see all $11.65 million of it.

Yep....I root for Kubes to do well and hope he wins a Super Bowl with the Texans at some point to reward them for showing some patience while he was trying to put together a defense to match his offense.

The fat man, Wade Phillips, is an average head coach, but is one of the best defensive coordinators in the business and is a perfect fit in Houston.

Phillips is a native Texan (as is Kubes). There were/are a lot of chess pieces for Phillips to play with there. I'm sure he will be satisfied and has come to the realization that he is best suited as a defensive coordinator and this is a great place for him to be. I think being the head coach of the Cowboys burnt him out and took a toll on him.

This gig is a lot less stress and he doesn't have to answer to a prick like Jerry Jones.

If he makes money playing football, and they have a judgement, the garnishing of his wages could happen as soon as this yr. What makes you think he can avoid paying? He can appeal, but those don't take yrs and yrs in civil court. Now if a guy hides money, says he has none, doesn't have any etc etc then its tough. But a guy getting a fat game check every week they can find that easy.

“I think (Winslow) feels like he’s been given a breath of fresh air (in Seattle),” the observer said. “He lives in San Diego, and he seems to like it here. Another factor with him is that he just happened to have three monster games against the Seahawks (including a 7-98 receiving day with two TDs in his most recent game vs. Seattle in Week 16 of the 2010 season). When you consider all he cost was a seventh-round pick (that could be upgraded to a sixth-rounder), all you can say is, ‘wow!’ "

Interesting question to ponder during the slow time of the football year.

Abraham has 112.0 career sacks (6 years of 10+ sacks).

The 112.0 sacks places him 16th on the all-time list (Sacks stat has only been kept since 1982).

When I evaluate pass rushers, I love to look at forced fumbles. Abraham has 38 forced fumbles for his career....a nice number, but not an eye popping number of forced fumbles for being in the league 12 years.

Abraham has never led the league in sacks and has been in the top five twice during his 12 year career.

Abraham is 34 years old....even with a few more years of decent sack numbers, I don't think he will make the Hall of Fame.

A very good player and a tenacious pass rusher, but I don't think of him as the elite of the elite, which is what you need for admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

That's a similar discussion to one that Broncos fans have, occasionally. Rod Smith was an excellent player, but not worthy of Canton enshrinement (in my mind).

Interesting question to ponder during the slow time of the football year.

Abraham has 112.0 career sacks (6 years of 10+ sacks).

The 112.0 sacks places him 16th on the all-time list (Sacks stat has only been kept since 1982).

When I evaluate pass rushers, I love to look at forced fumbles. Abraham has 38 forced fumbles for his career....a nice number, but not an eye popping number of forced fumbles for being in the league 12 years.

Abraham has never led the league in sacks and has been in the top five twice during his 12 year career.

Abraham is 34 years old....even with a few more years of decent sack numbers, I don't think he will make the Hall of Fame.

A very good player and a tenacious pass rusher, but I don't think of him as the elite of the elite, which is what you need for admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

I like this move....I'm always finishing up watching the early games and then have to switch over for the Denver kickoff and miss what happened at the very end of the early games.

This will help people watch the end of the early games in their entirety.

I have waited for this to happen ever since we moved away from Denver about 35 years ago!

A defensive end who is on his way to the Hall of Fame is Jared Allen.

Kansas City was foolish to trade away a Hall of Famer entering his prime years.

Jared Allen had 22 sacks last year....a half sack away from the all-time record.

He has 105.0 sacks, 26 forced fumbles, 16 fumble recoveries, and 5 INTs in 8 years.

Seasons of 22 sacks, 15.5 sacks, 14.5 sacks, 14.5 sacks, 11.0 sacks, 11.0 sacks, 9.0 sacks, and 7.5 sacks.

Plus, he is an all around defensive player, who plays the run well and will pick of an occasional pass.

Jared Allen turned 30 earlier in the year....he could very easily challenge the all-time sack mark of 200.0 sacks, held by Bruce Smith.

they just gave Brees $40m for one year. One year. They will probably give him $20m in year two, and then the rest over the remainder of the contract. $60m in two years is huge. Manning will be getting around $40m in two years with the Broncos.

Trading Allen landed us Branden Albert and Jamaal Charles, and got rid of Carl Peterson because the team sucked ass so bad the year after.

I'm cool with the Allen trade in hindsight, especially because we have a great pass rusher in Hali and what is looking to be another good one Justin Houston.
