Posted Tuesday April 16, 2013, About: JaMarcus Russell likely won't get 2nd chance
It all depends on him {Russell}, it was a rag to riches back to rags story, he cannot expect to just walk back into the NFL because of how he left the NFL. If he is serious I think he should be given a second chance, give him the base NFL yearly salary and time will tell. You hear scouts and other NFL evaluators such as Mayock, Kiper and others say that J. Russell was amazing at the combine and during his pro day back before he was drafted, he obviously had a gift, his attitude and work ethics and most likely his over inflated contract before he ever took a snap in the NFL is what hurt him as a player. I am all for giving someone a second chance, there are plenty of players that have went down in flames and came back to be great. For Russell to go from the worst draft bust in history back to even getting a start on an NFL team will be very hard to do but it is possible IF a team gives him a chance.
Posted Friday April 12, 2013, About: Dolphins ready to deal up ... way up
The "fish" pick at #12, I don't see any reason to move up, this draft is a lineman year, O & D.
Most scouts have only a few 1st round QBs I doubt the fins will take one and two or three 1st round WRs which they don't need after giving the farm for Hartline and Wallace. They lost Long so I think they will go with a lineman and there are plenty this year, this draft is very thin at first round RBs, not sure if any are considered 1st round worthy. Instead of moving up the fish would be better off moving back and picking up more mid round picks, either that or stay put but don't move up, they have been busy in FA this year. Stay pat or move back for more picks.
Posted Wednesday December 19, 2012, About: Tomlin downplays play-calling drama
That should have read..........Ben is good but he is NOT an elite QB, he is no Manning, Brady or Brees, yes he won two SB but one was done with Bettis and the running game and the other was with D. Ben could NOT take a 31st ranked D team to the SB like Brady he needs a good team around him.

Ben does not like being told what to do, he thinks he knows best how to run a team but he don't. If Ben does not shape up he will be playing for the Jets next year reunited with Holmes. Pittsburg does not care who you are, if you cause trouble you are out the door.

The NFL is fixed anyway, it is like wrestling, they know who is going to win the superbowl before the season starts. It is a business and it is all about the money now a days.
Posted Wednesday February 09, 2011, About: Ward feeling overlooked on critical drives
I thought for sure the Steelers would pull it out somehow, they always manage. They are the luckiest team in the league, balls bounce their way, refs give them calls or non calls to keep drives going or calls to help them when the other team has the ball. Some games I just shake my head, not just this year either I am talking decades of lucky things that happen. The Jets kicker who missed two kicks in 2005 is another example, the football Gods are always with them but the Pack was too much for them, I think they under estimated the Pack and over estimated themselves as a team.
