My older brother is a big Cowboys fan...he tells me that Cowboys wouldn't win 8 games if not for Romo....unfortunately they wouldn't have lost 8 games if not for Romo.

the good stuff:

– Zero Super Bowl interceptions.

– He’s still on his original neck. Not every NFL quarterback can say that.

– Greatest Cowboy quarterback ever except for Roger Staubach, Don Meredith, Troy Aikman and Danny White.

Ha!

You forgot Craig Morton who led the Cowboys to SB V

In 1971, the Cowboys had a quarterback controversy between Craig Morton and Roger Staubach. Morton and Staubach alternated as the starting quarterback during the regular season. Landry eventually settled on Morton for most of the second half of the season, because he felt less confident that Staubach would follow his game plan (Landry called all of Morton's plays).

Also, Morton had done extremely well in the regular season, throwing for 1,819 yards and 15 touchdowns, with only 7 interceptions, earning him a passer rating of 89.8.

In contrast, Staubach, although a noted scrambler and able to salvage broken plays effectively, threw for 542 yards, and only 2 touchdowns compared to 8 interceptions, giving him a 42.9 rating.

He was a very good QB whose confidence was shaken by the benching in Dallas, and then being sent to Hades (NY Giants), before being re-born in Denver at the age of 34. One of my personal all time favorite players....

i know. but when your GM isn't job scared but is scared to replace a QB it shows badly. until they get a real GM again and a coach with some balls they will never go anywhere.

i agree....Jerry is one stubborn SoB. One fan even sent a petition to the White house to make Jerry sell the cowboys or something to that effect....LOL

hanson played 21 years.... woah. i was 5 when he joined the league ;D

To put the length of his career in perspective in terms of the Lions, Jason Hanson was drafted only 5 months after Mike Utley was paralyzed in a game against the Los Angeles Rams in 1991. I was actually at that game.

Barry Sanders had just finished his 3rd season with the Lions when they drafted Jason Hanson.

Dan Reeves was still the head coach of the Denver Broncos when Jason Hanson was a rookie.

The Kansas City Chiefs last won a playoff game in 1993, Jason Hanson's second season in the NFL.

Peyton Manning was a sophomore....in high school when Jason Hanson was a rookie in the NFL.

Ronnie Hillman was about 7 months old when Jason Hanson was drafted.

Brett Favre was drafted in 1991, but started his first game in 1992....that's kind of amazing to think Brett Favre started his games played streak in 1992 and kept it going until 2010 playing at the QB position.

Rolando McClain - LB - Free Agent

The Ravens are reportedly nearing a deal with free agent ILB Rolando McClain.
After losing both Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe, the Ravens are hungry to add talent at inside linebacker. McClain, the No. 8 overall pick in 2010 that flamed out in Oakland thanks in large part to off-field issues, certainly fits the bill. He also has a tie to GM Ozzie Newsome, as both are Alabama alums. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the two sides are scheduled to talk today "to see if they can iron out unresolved issues."

Ravens ink QB Hanie


Owings Mills, MD (Sports Network) - The Baltimore Ravens signed quarterback Caleb Hanie on Tuesday.

Hanie served as Peyton Manning's backup for the Denver Broncos this past season. The 27-year-old Colorado State product served the same role for the Chicago Bears from 2008-2011.
Hanie has appeared in 10 games, throwing for 679 yards, three touchdowns and 10 interceptions. In 2011, Hanie started four games after Jay Cutler was sidelined with a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

"Later on, maybe, but right now I still feel like I can play at the level I expect and the level they expect me to at corner. Besides, I'm not even close to 36. I'm 34."

Bailey turns 35 in June.

Trent Cole - LB - Eagles

Eagles OLB Trent Cole's February hand surgery was performed to address multiple tendon tears and a snapped bone near his right wrist.
Cole says he played with the injury in 2011, but in 2012 "finally it snapped in half and I had to get some surgery." Cole turned in the worst year of his career last season, which -- in hindsight -- isn't surprising because pass rushers rely so much on hand usage. "I’ll straight up tell you I had a bad year," said 30-year-old Cole. "And it’s not going to happen again."

Obviously ILBs.. There is no way a rookie plays on Dansby's level over a two year span. Dansby has been a forgotten stud ILB in the NFL.. Just does everything right. Darryl Washington reminds me of a Dansby, in that he's very well rounded and talented. Washington is an under the radar up and coming star, where Dansby is an under the radar star already..

He must want big money.. After all he thinks he's the best ILB in football.

Yup. Guys like Abraham, Freeney, Urlacher, etc, can all set their asking price and legitimately leverage with "It's not worth putting my body through a football season for less". But in his early 30s, Dansby's playing this year.

Scott Fujita retires as a Saint

Linebacker Scott Fujita signed a one-day contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday and then announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Fujita signed his contract in Machu Picchu, which is located in the Andes Mountains in Peru. He's there with former Saints teammate Steve Gleason, who is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In a statement from the team, Fujita said he couldn't think of a better place to be to announce his retirement.

"What better place to reach the end of the road than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?"

Fujita was one of four players suspended by the NFL in its investigation of the Saints' bounty program but fought to clear his name of the three-game ban. Commissioner Roger Goodell later reduced Fujita's suspension to one game before the suspensions of all players implicated were later vacated by former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

The 33-year-old Fujita, who played for the Cleveland Browns the past three seasons, helped the Saints win a Super Bowl during his time with the team (2006-09).

Fujita was credited with four tackles in the Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys.

He has 767 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and seven interceptions in 143 career games.

"I've been fortunate to play in this league for a long time and for some great organizations, but there is no doubt that my times spent in New Orleans were some of the best years of my life," Fujita said in the statement.

"The way the team and the community embraced us when we first arrived, and the way they continue to do so, even today, shows how deep this connection is. I'm honored to be a part of this organization and so proud to retire as a New Orleans Saint."

General manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton pointed out in the team's statement that Fujita was the first player the team signed in free agency after Payton became the team's coach in 2006.

"It was an important acquisition for us, getting a player of his caliber to come to New Orleans despite the conditions [post-Hurricane Katrina] for a number of reasons because he saw an opportunity to become involved in the rebuilding of the city, yet quickly realized how important the team was to that effort," Loomis said.

Payton called Fujita "a cornerstone of the foundation that we've built and we won a World Championship together.

"It's been said that when you win a championship together, you walk together for the rest of your lives and that's certainly appropriate to celebrate on a day like today."

I think Freeny is the target of those 2. I saw something in the post today that said they could bring Brooking back if they don't draft a LB but wasn't sure if it was just speculation or not.

I think Freeny is the target of those 2. I saw something in the post today that said they could bring Brooking back if they don't draft a LB but wasn't sure if it was just speculation or not.

hopefully it's speculation. we don't need to rely on that for a 2nd season in a row. we need to either draft a MLB or Irving needs to be the MLB we expected him to be when he was drafted.

Bears have four draft picks signed already. They are not messing around!

Marquess Wilson - WR - Bears

Bears agreed to terms with No. 236 overall picks WR Marquess Wilson on a four-year contract.
Wilson (6-foot-2 5/8, 194) didn't play football in 2012 after leaving Washington State and alleging "abuse" against coach Mike Leach. As a junior in 2011, Wilson caught 82 passes for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has a realistic shot at seeing significant snaps as a rookie in three-wide sets.


Khaseem Greene - LB - Bears

Bears agreed to terms with No. 117 overall pick OLB Khaseem Greene on a four-year contract.
Greene (6-foot 3/4, 241) plays faster than his 4.71 forty time indicates, and he also has a nose for the football. He led Rutgers with 125 tackles and forced six fumbles as a senior. Greene projects as Lance Briggs' heir apparent at weak-side linebacker, but he'll likely focus on special teams as a rookie.


Bears ink fifth-rounder Mills to 4-year deal

Bears agreed to terms with No. 167 overall pick G/T Jordan Mills on a four-year contract.
Mills is the first draft pick to sign. The Bears moved quickly to lock up their picks in 2012, and are expected to do so again this season. GM Phil Emery singled out Mills' versatility as one of the main reasons the Bears drafted him. "We'll probably start him out at right tackle and let him learn a little bit and we'll move him around." Mills has prototypical left-tackle size (6-foot-5, 316 pounds, 34-inch arms), but limited athleticism means he'll stick at right tackle and guard


Bears get sixth-rounder Washington signed

Bears agreed to terms with No. 188 overall pick DE Cornelius Washington on a four-year contract.
Washington (6-foot-4, 265 pounds) lit up the Combine with a 4.55 40-yard dash and 1.60 ten-yard split, but a lack of college production sent him tumbling to the sixth round after he was mocked as high as the third. Washington will back up LE Corey Wootton at a rookie. He's a project.

It's just another strong signing for GM Ozzie Newsome this offseason. San Diego could turn its attention to free agent Max Starks, while Miami is likely to roll with Jonathan Martin at left tackle.

He is worth a 2nd and that's why he wasn't traded. Now we're keeping a good (but not great OL) to add to another good one we just got and that's making the team better.

I'm not taking his word at 100% right now because I think they are still trying to trade him. It decreases his value to say that he is a RT.

I think Albert is worth more than a 3rd as seen by his pass protection the last 2 years. I think what's holding him back is his price tag though.
Having Albert back is far more valuable than losing him for only a 3rd round pick. I don't think he's elite, but I think he is good.

I think there is no doubt about it that Fisher will be the long term LT. Might start off at RT at first, but I think in 2014 he'll be the LT.

Reid drafted Andrews in the first round to be an OT in tackle but played him at G his first year before moving him to OT, so he has a history of this.

boltaneer
05-04-2013, 06:27 AM
How are the Chiefs going to keep Albert in 2014? He said he wont to move to RT (meaning he wants to be paid like a LT) and you're not going to pay him LT money to play RT.

Next year is supposed to be another big crop for premium LTs so this whole situation is going to come up again, especially since the salary cap isn't expected to go up again next year. Teams will go younger and cheaper (like the Chiefs just did).

Moreno has blown out his knee twice now on 207 touches. He can't be counted on as a back up. Williams is better then at this point in their careers. There is no team left where Williams would be a clear cut starter, at least in Denver he is with a coach he knows and the primary vet back up on a team that could use him.

Moreno has blown out his knee twice now on 207 touches. He can't be counted on as a back up. Williams is better then at this point in their careers. There is no team left where Williams would be a clear cut starter, at least in Denver he is with a coach he knows and the primary vet back up on a team that could use him.

like i said, i'd be all over him like a gold digger on a rich athlete.
but he might hold out for a starting job so he can regain some of his lost revenue from being cut.

but realistically, the Panthers can't afford to cut him. their running game was pure **** without him doing well.

They drafted Kenjon Barner in the 6th and have tons of money tied up in Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, and Mike Tolbert. Rumors are suggesting that they have been shopping him for over a year now. Seems like he is the odd man out in the eyes of the Panthers FO.

Ed Reed has arthroscopic hip surgery. Supposed to be ready for TC.

Steve Spagnuolo signed as defensive assistant with the Ravens.

Tony Sparano signed as OL coach for the Raiders.

Two former HC's, they've fallen a bit. Add in Raheem Morris who I believe is the DB's coach for Washington. Hey, at least JDR is hanging onto his DC position, hasn't fallen as far as those three.

There sure has been a boatload of former HC's lately that have fallen past the Coordinator level.

Rod Marinelli, currently DL coach for the Cowboys. Lovie Smith, not employed at this time. Mike Tice, not employed at this time. Interesting that Marinelli, Lovie, and Tice were just last season the Bears' DC, HC and OC.

That was before his latest knee problems. I was wrong on the total of touches between knee surgeries. It was only 159 touches and he needed more work to his knee. We can't count on him period. I don't know why you want to keep this turd around when there are better uses of our roster space.

Director of player personnel Matt Russell says the Broncos liked Alabama RB Eddie Lacy, but "backed off" due to concerns about his 2012 toe injury and "how many years he could play."
Lacy was popularly mocked to the Broncos, but they ended up selecting Wisconsin's Montee Ball before the Packers scooped him at No. 61. Viewed as the No. 1 running back for a majority of the pre-draft process, it's clear teams took Lacy's 2012 toe/foot operation much more seriously than draftniks. Regardless, Lacy claims he's now 100 percent healthy, and should be motivated by his draft tumble. He's landed in an excellent spot.


Broncos executive VP John Elway compares Montee Ball's running style to Terrell Davis'.
"Obviously, that got us real excited," Elway said on a conference call with season-ticket holders. Davis, not coincidentally, is who Ball says he modeled his game after. The former MVP and 2,000-yard club member is a good role model for a running back, but the Broncos have to hope Ball's career trajectory takes a different path than Davis', who carried the ball just 312 times after his age-26 season. It's a legitimate concern that Ball's 983 college touches will lead to a short NFL career.


The Broncos are "confident" they'll reach a long-term agreement with unsigned franchise player LT Ryan Clady.
"We want him here," director of player personnel Matt Russell said. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Clady has yet to sign his one-year, $9.828 million tender. The sides have until July 15 to hammer out a long-term pact.


Executive VP John Elway confirms Robert Ayers will be the Broncos' starting right end.
With the Broncos out of the mix for Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, Ayers will slide into Elvis Dumervil's old spot after Shaun Phillips was signed to be a nickel rusher. Ayers should cede snaps to Phillips on passing downs

Free agent WR Titus Young was arrested twice in 15 hours last Sunday.
The troubled ex-Lion was busted for drunk driving at 12:01 Sunday morning in Moreno Valley, Cal. He was then arrested again 15 hours later after he was caught trying to steal his impounded Mustang from a tow-company lot. It's the exact kind of confounding, short-sighted behavior that earned Young his walking papers from the Lions less than two years after he was a second-round pick. Young needs to get serious help before his life spirals completely out of control

Ronde Barber - DB - Buccaneers

Ronde Barber has decided to retire.
"I've had a better run than I ever could've dreamed," Barber told FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. One of the longest tenured players in the NFL, Barber is hanging it up after 16 seasons. A three-time All Pro, Barber helped the Bucs to Super Bowl XXXVII win, and holds the record for most consecutive starts by a defensive back (215). Barber showed well as a safety last season, but would have returned as a reserve after the Bucs added Dashon Goldson and Johnthan Banks. Barber should be enshrined in the Bucs' Ring of Honor, but his Hall-of-Fame candidacy is harder to quantify. He benefited from playing for an all-time great defense during his prime, and wasn't an elite player the second half of his career. If not for his durability and longevity, Barber would be a borderline, at best, candidate for Canton. Those qualities are likely to put him over the top, however.

More drama in Jets qb camp:

Here we go again.

The circus-like atmosphere surrounding the Jets’ quarterback position is getting a little bit crazier, with a report out today that David Garrard, who was brought in to provide some veteran leadership and stability, has told teammates today that he is planning to leave the team.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Garrard told two teammates he no longer plans to be with the Jets. It is unclear whether that’s because he plans to retire, if he’s been told he’s getting cut, or if something else has happened. According to the Jets, Garrard is still on the roster.

Asked about the story, Garrard told NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington:,”I’m not talking about that right now. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.”

Bruce Irvin - DL - Seahawks

NFL suspended Seahawks DE Bruce Irvin four games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing substances.
Irvin has no plans to appeal, admitting he took Adderall without a medical exemption. He'll participate in training camp and preseason, then be barred from all Seahawks activities until Week 5. Irvin, the 15th overall pick in last year's draft, registered eight sacks and a forced fumble as a nickel-rushing rookie. For the first month of the season, at least, Seattle is deep enough to withstand Irvin's loss after adding Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett to their pass-rushing corps.

Third player busted from the Hawks in two years. Yeah no wonder that D is so good.

NFL suspended Seahawks DE Bruce Irvin four games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing substances.

Reid being a so called QB guru is a myth.

Reid is a regular Bill Walsh at developing QBs if you compare that to his ability of raising his own children.

I've seen posts like this before about Reid and his kids. It's incredibly judgmental and insensitive. I've never heard of Reid being abusive and his sons don't blame him or their mother for the way their lives played out, at least not publicly. That doesn't mean Reid didn't have a hand in their development, but people looking at a kid and then saying "they have horrible parents. It's all their fault" is total BS. We have no idea how the Reid family was or what kind of parents they were to their kids. I've met some really cool people with terrible parents. I've met some amazing parents with horrible kids. People ultimately are responsible for their own actions.

Did Kolb even play in a playoff game in Philly?

Vick had a fair game. 2 TD's and 1 INT and just under 300 passing yards. If I remember correctly, the Eagles lost that game in the last minute on a last minute scoring attempt.

That was my point.

that's because in general people believe that a person will follow what their parents taught them in times of trouble.
or basically, if the parent taught them right they wouldn't do this because they'd know it was wrong.

that's true in some situations but without knowing the whole scenario it's hard to say it's someone's fault other than that person.
the person makes their own choices regardless of it being a good idea or not.
not everyone has the same moral compass on right, wrong, acceptable or unacceptable.

Jason Avant - WR - Eagles

The Eagles have been working WR Jason Avant at defensive back.
Coach Chip Kelly is certainly putting his stamp on the team. We already mentioned how TE Clay Harbor was dabbling at outside linebacker. Avant set a career-high with 53 catches last season, but he's nothing more than a middling slot talent with no big-play ability. The Eagles traded for Arrelious Benn, and Avant might be on the outside looking in at the 53-man roster.

I'm still holding out hope we can send them Tony Carter for something.

Jeff Garcia looked fantastic and led them to the playoffs when McNabb got hurt, Kolb looked so good that a team gave up a 2nd and a starting CB for him and he made Vick look like a respectable passer.

I think Alex Smith will be a big test for him though. This will prove his reputation.

You don't have to be abusive or a drug using parent to have your kids turn out bad. The worst thing a parent can do is not spend quality time with their kids....as in being too busy to show them the right path. Being a head coach in the NFL could certainly make a man too busy.

Andy Reid is a decent coach. But he owes a lot of his success to the late Jim Johnson. And he lost two NFC Championship Games as a home favorite (once to the John Fox coached Carolina Panthers), and lost another (to Arizona) that many think they should have won. His act got stale in Philly and the fans were long past ready to move on. It wasn't working any more. Will be interesting to see if he can make it work again somewhere else.

Andry Reid is an NFL Head Coach and thus did not spend enough time with his family. All NFL Coaches are awful in this regard, and if they aren't, then they are bad coaches and are fired quickly.

Reid's son died of a heroin overdose. Both of his sons were in prison. Previous to that they were living in his house with weapons and a lot of pills. He had younger children living in the house.

He also probably allowed all of them to watch both Ghostbusters movies while he was at the Eagles complex breaking down Koy Detmer tapes. Guess I should have used the standard obese man joke. No offense!

nothing wrong with having balls. his success will come from his ability to reach the players and teach them the things they need.
if he can't do that then he will flame out.

How much did he pay attention with Vick? It's the little things that kill.
I saw this on Twitter:

“So I showed him how I was running with it, and he looked at it and he knocked the ball right out of my hands. And he was like, ‘Hold it like this.’ And what he told me felt comfortable. I had a tighter grip on the football. That should secure that problem as long as I work on it.” -Michael Vick

Now, imagine you were drafted by a team other than the team you grew up rooting for. Imagine the team that now employs you is the arch-rival of your favorite team. How quickly would you be able to abandon allegiances?

Perhaps we should ask Keenan Allen. The rookie wide receiver -- a third-round choice by the San Diego Chargers -- recently posted a Vine video of himself sipping on a beverage while wearing a black Oakland Raiders cap.

The Chargers and Raiders are rivals, of course, going all the way back to their days together in the hardscrabble AFL.

Allen removed the video following an avalanche of criticism. The inevitable mea culpa soon followed.
