OT - Around the NFL and sports


Well July is a big dead time for football and there is not much to talk about.  Well, much outside of cursing Flozell Adam's name.  Therefore, I am looking to spark some talks and debates about anything football or sports.  I will just list a few bullet points and hopefully something gets rolling.  Jump!

  • Well the biggest news in sports right now is LeBron's free agency and pending move tonight.  Word around the street is he is looking to join Wade and Bosh in MIami.  I won't believe anything I hear until the word comes from him though.  Anyway, I bring it up because I hope that he leaves Cleveland and that city goes back to having nothing positive in sports.
  • JaMarcus Russell likes that purple drank.
  • You cannot take the fight out of the dogMichael Vick, although not involved in the shooting, was apparently in an altercation before it happened.  He had to be restrained by a few of the people in his group and forces into a limo before departing.
  • Netherlands and Spain square off in the World Cup on Sunday at 2:30 EST.  This is going to be a great game.  Netherlands doesn't really have any flashy players, but they are the definition of a team.  Spain has the flash and could spell trouble for the dutch defense.
  • The Orioles really, really, really suck.  How is your baseball team doing?
  • It may appear that both the Titans and CJ are nearing a compromise.  Initially, I was completely against CJ, but I understand his gripe.  The life span of a NFL RB is short and an injury this year could kill his chances for a big pay day.  He is simply going all in with the best starting hand, a 2,000 yard season.  I think he could have approached it better, but I understand.
  • Now that is a monster deal, D'Brickashaw Ferguson signs a 6 year $60 million dollar deal.  I heard $38 million was guaranteed.  I wish our LT was that good.  Then again, I wish more that we had a RT.
  • Would you pay Darelle Revis $100 million dollars?  I wouldn't.  I'd pay more for a great pass rush that can make average CBs look decent.
  • The importance of OLBs in a 3-4.  Just a little article that might make you feel better about our draft of OLBs.
  • Ed Reed who said he was "50-50" about returning to football earlier this off season is now sparking up convo about a new contract.  He has 3 years left on his contract, which amounts to 20 million.  That seems pretty good to me, but he wants more.  It should be interesting to see what happens there.  I hope he just retires.
  • Anything else?  Post hijacking and off topic discussion is encouraged.  Also, posting pics of hot ladies is pertinent to this being a good thread.
