The most interesting (and surprising) part of that story... Tampa Bay, the best team in the NFC. Does Raa Raa Rahaaaahahaaa Morris really know what he is doing or are the Bucs lucking up?

Sparano benches Henne

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...benches-henne/

Posted by Mike Florio on November 10, 2010 1:20 PM ET

Shortly after noon ET, we shared with you rumors from the Dolphins locker room that quarterback Chad Henne could be benched for quarterback Chad Pennington.

And it's happened.

Per multiple reports, Sparano made the disclosure at a Wednesday press conference. As a result, Pennington is the new starter.

"This is not an indictment on Chad Henne, not an indictment on his future," Sparano said, via Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "At this particular time this is something I feel I need to do."

Sparano said that Henne "was disappointed, as I would expect, but a tremendous professional."

It had been suggested that Pennington would provide a bridge to Tyler Thigpen. It sounds like Henne will still have a chance to become the starter again.

Until then, Henne becomes the latest second-round pick that the Dolphins have wasted in an attempt to find the next Dan Marino. From A.J. Feeley to Daunte Culpepper to John Beck to Chad Henne to Pat White, the Dolphins have swung and missed on five second-round selection, via trading or using the picks.

I wouldn't say Henne is a bust. He's an "ok" QB that can still get better.

Jaguars lose Aaron Kampman for the season

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...or-the-season/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 12, 2010, 1:04 PM EST

In only eight games, Aaron Kampman had transformed himself into the leader of the Jaguars defense, not to mention their best defensive lineman.

Jacksonville will have to move on without him after learning that Kampman suffered a torn ACL at practice Thursday, ending his season. Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio announced the move at his Friday press conference. Kampman’s career in Green Bay ended with a torn ACL to his other knee, and he made a quick recovery to play well for the season’s first eight games.

It’s a crushing blow for the beleaguered Jaguars defense. They have struggled to consistently pressure the passer, and will now have to turn back to recently benched former first-round pick Derrick Harvey. Kampman also represents a huge investment by the organization, which had been paying off. He received a $10 million signing bonus on a four-year deal.

In a deep AFC playoff picture, both the Jaguars and Texans can’t afford to fall to 4-5 on Sunday. We seriously doubt Jacksonville can make a second half run because of their tough schedule, and this news will only make their task tougher.

It's looking like Kerry Collins may get the start for Tennessee versus Miami on Sunday, as Vince Young is battling an ankle injury.

If he beats Miami, Collins will join Brett Favre as the only other QB in NFL history to beat all 32 NFL teams.

Report: Pennington and Henne likely out for the season

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...or-the-season/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 14, 2010, 7:05 PM EST

The Dolphins won’t have to choose between Chad Pennington and Chad Henne for the rest of the season; they both aren’t expected to play again.

Mike Berardino and Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel report that Pennington and Henne are expected to miss the rest of the season. Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Pennington has a dislocated shoulder, the fourth serious shoulder injury of his career.

Henne left the stadium on crutches and was headed to undergo an MRI. His kneecap bent forward in ugly fashion on the play that took him out. While one source of the Sentinel’s expects Henne to miss the rest of the season, the other source wasn’t as sure.

Tyler Thigpen will take over as the starter for the 5-4 Dolphins; Miami has started to search for a possible backup for Thursday’s game.

I think Quinn is available. Maybe McD can get 7th for Quinn?

Colts still fear listening devices in Foxboro

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...es-in-foxboro/

Posted by Mike Florio on November 20, 2010, 4:51 PM EST

For the second straight weekend, the three-year-old notion of the Patriots engaging in tactics not recognized by the rule book hovers over one of the team’s biggest out-of-division rivalries.

In his look-ahead to the coming weekend, Peter King of SI.com (via StampedeBlue.com) points out that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning fears the presence of enemy ears in the visitors’ locker room at Gillette Stadium.

Manning hasn’t said it, but King says he’s heard “reliably” that Manning and former offensive coordinator Tom Moore used to huddle in the hall outside the locker room when the time came to talk strategy. “So if you’re outside the locker room Sunday,” King writes, “don’t be surprised to see Manning and his first-year coordinator, Christensen, huddling for a few minutes.”

None of it means that bugs have been planted in the locker room, but there’s nothing wrong with being cautious. Even if the caution becomes paranoia.

Report: Hakeem Nicks out indefinitely with leg injury

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...th-leg-injury/

Posted by Mike Florio on November 22, 2010, 4:18 PM EST

Injuries arguably have fueled the Giants’ latest late-season slide. Last night’s loss to the Eagles resulted in another key injury.

Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that receiver Hakeem Nicks is out indefinitely with a lower leg injury. Garafolo cites two unnamed sources with knowledge of the situation in support of the report.

The specific nature of the injury and the duration of the absence are not yet know.

Already absent is receiver Steve Smith, who suffered a pectoral injury in practice earlier this month. The 6-4 Giants host the 6-4 Jaguars on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's sprained foot is actually broken, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.

The Post-Gazette said that the fifth metatarsal bone or the outside metatarsal on his right foot was broken during the first quarter of the Steelers' win Sunday in Buffalo.

However, Roethlisberger practiced again Thursday and told the paper that he fully expects to play in Baltimore on Sunday night.

It looks like Richard Seymour used the 'Dim Mak' technique when he punched Ben Roethlisberger.....he punched him in the head and blew out his foot:

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - NFL players might be socking away their paychecks soon to get ready for a lockout that could cost them their entire salary in 2011.



The pro football players' union has advised its members to save their last three game checks this year in case next season is cancelled. In a letter to the players that was viewed by The Associated Press, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said the union's "internal deadline" for agreeing to a new collective bargaining agreement has passed.

"It is important that you protect yourself and your family," he wrote in the letter, which was dated Wednesday.

NFLPA spokesman George Atallah declined to elaborate on what effect the passing of the self-imposed deadline would have on negotiations, saying the letter was an "internal communication."

But copies were strewn across a table on Saturday in the New England Patriots' locker-room, where they were visible to players, reporters and team officials. After a reporter asked players about the letter, a Patriots spokesman flipped the copies face-down.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello called the news of a deadline "disappointing and inexplicable, especially for fans."

"We hope this does not mean the union has abandoned negotiating in favour of decertifying and litigating," he said. "We are ready to meet and negotiate anytime and anywhere. But it takes sustained effort and shared commitment to reach an agreement. One side can't do it alone."

About an hour after telling the AP, "We don't comment publicly on our internal communications with players," Atallah did just that on Twitter.

"Today's memo to NFL players was an internal deadline to prepare, not for CBA negotiations," he wrote, following up with two more tweets: "The NFL knows that we have exchanged correspondence and met regularly," and "To spin this as an end to the NFLPA's negotiating is dumb. Perhaps the outrage can be directed towards preventing a lockout."

The NFL has not missed games due to labour strife since 1987, when the players went on strike and the owners continued the season with replacement players. But the prospect of a lost season in 2011 intensified when owners opted out of the collective bargaining agreement in 2008, saying they could not make a profit if required to give almost 60 cents of every $1 in revenue to the players.

Smith has said that he believes the owners opted out with the goal of locking the players out. The NFLPA's home page features a "Lockout Watch" that counts down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the CBA expires on March 3.

The one-page letter on NFLPA stationery said the union expects the lockout to begin March 4, and that players should work with their advisers to prepare for an impending lack of income.

It also said the league threatened to cancel the players' health insurance.

The union said it would file a grievance to contest a cancellation of health insurance, noting that the CBA promises players their health insurance would continue "through the end of the Plan Year in which they are released or otherwise sever employment."

Patriots offensive lineman Matt Light said players understand the nature of the business, but the threat to cancel health insurance is different.

"You're going to cancel somebody's health insurance and maybe they've got a baby that's due in the off-season?" said Light, who is one of the team's player representatives. "Yeah, it gets personal."

Aiello said that there would be no interruption of health care, because of the federal COBRA law that allows employees to continue coverage at their own expense.

"This means that no player or family member would experience any change in coverage for so much as a single day because of a work stoppage," he said. "The union surely knows this and there is no excuse for suggesting otherwise."

Light said he is doing his best to educate his teammates on how to prepare.

"They've got to look at it like they're going into a period in which they are going to change their financial situation," he said. "Nobody knows what's going to happen. But if you're going to go a year without getting paid, you need to prepare accordingly."

Under the deal agreed to in 2006, the players' share of designated NFL revenues is set at 59.6 per cent. The owners opted out beginning next season, arguing they have huge debts from building stadiums and starting up the NFL Network that make it impossible to be profitable.

The two sides met last month and said they made "some progress" on proposals involving an 18-game regular season and limiting off-season workouts.

But players have gone public with their case in recent weeks, briefing Congress on the job loss and other economic impacts of a lockout and even drafting letters for lawmakers to send to the league. Using many of the same studies the NFL relies on when trumpeting public subsidies for new stadiums, an economist commissioned by the union estimated an average of about US$160 million in local spending and 3,000 jobs would be lost in each league city if the full 2011 season were wiped out.

The NFL called the figures "a fairy tale."

New England linebacker Tully Banta-Cain said he was already squirreling away his savings in case of a lockout. Banta-Cain said he was also working on his outside businesses, which include a clothing line and a music label.

"I'm trying to prepare," he said. "And I'm trying to establish my off-the-field businesses and make sure I can make money in the off-season."

Anyone else here serious about joining a "fan lockout" if it gets to March 4th and there's a league lockout? I personally don't care if they get things straightened out over the late spring or early summer and they salvage part of the season. If they so much as let it get to March 4th without working things out, I'm done.

If one side is being unreasonable (not saying this is necessarily true) then do you blame the other for not giving in and in turn, give up on football?

Nope. I blame the one side that is being unreasonable and choose not to spend my time and money on a system they control. It may not be fair to the other side that may be doing the "right thing" by not simply giving in, but life's not fair.

I simply cannot support an organization like the NFL that is the single most popular and profitable sport in the country, if it doesn't at least pretend to care about us, the fans, by working this whole thing out before March. I don't have a problem with greed to a point, but this is where I have to draw the line.

I hear ya.

I'm also sick and tired of the ridiculous prices the NFL force feeds the fans these days. I don't mind paying for the Red Zone (I think that's one of the only things they give great value on) but I pretty much draw the line there now as well.

Reggie Wayne had 14 receptions for 200 yards and a TD yesterday.

He is having another big year.

He has 90 receptions for 1,107 yards and 5 TDs this year.

That puts him on pace for 120 receptions and 1,476 yards receiving.
