ESPN has sucked for a while now. I don't put a single bit of stock into anything they say for ANY sport.

Well put. I'm not too crazy about it either but I like the fact that it benefits QBs that do more than just throw the ball.

I like it for the highlights, other than that I really don't care what their so called experts/analysts have to say.

But theres nothing else on teeveeeeeeee.

Anyways, I saw it, meh what ever not a stats guy. the europeans are befuddled by our statistics fetish, it was so funny. The New York times put out a huge ass flow chart of stats for the world cup, expats were like "WTF"

Sadly, he won't. He's a clown, but a talented one.

I'm wondering his how much they're going to shell out to Lawrence Timmons next year.

Mikel LeShoure tore his Achilles. Bad break for the Lions.

I think Detroit is on the way up. They're definitely in better shape than the Vikings in my opinion, assuming Stafford stays healthy.

Hell, I think Detroit is in better shape than Chicago as well. The NFC North is a shitty division once you remove the Packers.

I'll never believe Detroit is on the up until they show that they can acquire a decent starter at quarterback. Same things goes for Cleveland.

...Stafford has looked like an elite quarterback when healthy, the Lions don't need to acquire anything.

Same goes for the Browns-- while McCoy doesn't have a canon arm, he showed a lot of potential last season leading his team to victory against teams like the Pats and Saints. What the Browns need are competent receivers.

Stafford has had a few good games I'll give you that. McCoy didn't impress me at all, granted he was a rookie and things may change. We will see. But I don't think it's safe to say that these two franchises definitely have their quarterbacks of the future locked in place at this point in time. The same thing even goes for Sam Bradford. All three of those guys have a long way to go and haven't looked "elite" yet. A game here and there where they may have had a huge outing doesn't change that either.

Anybody else getting worried about Jeremy Maclin? He's lost 20lbs from April til' now and he's missed all of training camp. It was also just reported that he's currently in St. Louis getting a lot of tests done. I'm really worried for him that it's going to be something severe. :-/

I'm a bit more optimistic based on most of the reports/interviews I've heard, but there is always that worry in the back of your mind that it could possibley be worse.

Come back healthy Maclin, the Eagles need you.

Kansas St, Kansas and Mizzou, and ISU have NO WHERE TO GO if the Big 12 splits.

Whats more irregardless of what you think of it from a political standpoint, there is no way the government does not get involved if they take the next step to these super conferences. It's too messy.

I can't wait for football to start so we can actually talk about FOOTBALL.
Well, its looks like that Texas A&M is going or close to going to SEC. It looks like it. But things does change and 22 Aug is still far away but it looks like D-Day is coming to NCAA.

49ers played terrible in their first preseason game. Although it was apparent what the lockout had on the team. With no minicamp and OTA's and just two weeks of training came under a new coach installing a new offense. The pass protection was just plain bad. New Orleans brought a lot of blitzes early on (that is what Greg Williams does regardless of preseason it seems), but at the same time some guys were just getting plain beat in one on ones. The starting defensive unit didn't do bad as it held New Orleans' starting offensive unit to zero points.

FSU would be so stupid to join the SEC.





















I hope they do it.

Jake Locker has looked nice today. Starting to make me jealous. At least Aldon Smith looked nice yesterday.
