Well, better get used to the idea of an LA team Hal. HUGE tv market, and no team? Commishunur is gonna fix dat dere gud.


Umm, just how long has it been since a team has been here?.. hmm...? It's the bait factor, and the incompetent leadership here.

19 years. Los Angeles Rams

LA will have a team either in the city, or on its way by the draft, 2015.

With Bradford out with a torn ACL, the Rams are considering bringing in Tebow.

And man... last night's loss sucked balls, all because of errors...

It's hard to watch Weeden Suck as bad as he sucks, and watch the Browns not bring in a free agent to at least.... Compete. Jesus, I'd rather watch the Wild Cat QB we've been using play full games instead of this garbage.

Anonymous source says Vince Young will be inked by 5:00PM EST, workout went well.
Same Anonymous source says
Denver has offered Rd1 pick PLUS WR to Browns for Gordon
SF has also put forth an interesting package, with better player, lesser pick.
GB has put forth an offer, but at this point it's not in contention.

yay.....

which WR? Decker, Welkah and Thomas have been ok this year. Only one I can think of is Holliday and he's our punt returner, and he's good provided he doesnt drop the fricking ball.

Only one left is Caldwell.

Harvin is back at practice, and Mike Robinson (FB) has been re-signed. Just what the doctor ordered for the Seahawks' offense to start clicking. I doubt Harvin will debut against St. Louis. We'll have the bye after to get him more solidly in the programme, and be good to go for the 2nd half of the season.

I'm thinking (hoping) it will be difficult for teams to account for Wilson, Lynch, Tate, and Harvin all at once, sine all of them are dangerous open-field runners.

Well, considering that I doubt they would part with Thomas, or Welker, or Decker, and Holliday would be redundant in Cleveland (because really... Benjamin is amazing) I can only imagine they are offering up Caldwell, who I can't say I've ever heard his name called in a game. checking his stats, he has 3 catches for 69 yds and a td.

The SF offer is interesting in the way it was worded. Better player. Not better receiver. We need an RB, could they be thinking of Lemichael james? Surely they're joking. But I can't think of anyone else that they could be interested in.

Observations from the NFL Weekend:

There is no WR in the NFL better than Calvin Johnson. There are also no DB's in the league who can contain him week in, and week out.
Peyton Manning with two sprained ankles > Most other QB's in the league. Even at his age.
Jason Campbell looks like Troy Aikman when compared to Brandon Weeden.
Michael Irvin needs to go back to Dallas, smack Dez Bryant in the mouth, and tell him to shutup, and play.
The Patriots are a mess, despite what their record states.
The Raiders, could end up being a pleasant surprise.
The Chiefs, aren't that impressive for an 8-0 team, even though they should be.
The Steelers should start tanking for clowney, and OL
The Rams Defense is REALLY good. They suck, because their offense is possibly worse than Cleveland's.
The Buccaneers fans are coming to the sad realization that they suck too.
Does anyone doubt that the Vikings are drafting a QB in Rd1?
Brandon Meriweather better not blitz. I have a feeling some O Lineman might have a personal point to get across about his decision to say "I'm going to have to hit their knees, and end their career"
I'm really happy to see Thaddeus Lewis getting a chance to play. It's a shame it's because of injury, but you could see something in him at the end of the season last year. He could end up being a Starter somewhere.

It's time for another installment of one liners about the weekend!

Only the bengals could lose in OT like that.

The Dolphins are an 8-8 team if I've ever seen one.

Incognito isn't very incognito is he?

The Ravens... WTF guys... How can you lose to a team whose leading running back had TWENTY ONE CARRIES FOR THIRTY ONE YARDS.

The Texans are bad. Losing their coach made it that much worse.

Andrew Luck for MVP

The Chiefs are the most "boring" undefeated team ever.

Why aren't the talking heads going 'SUPER BOWL COWBOYS SUPER BOWL COWBOYS!' I mean.. They have a winning record, why haven't we been told how this is the time it sticks?

It's about time that Chris Johnson wakes up from hibernation

The Jets are a young, feisty team. A shame that sexy rexy is on the hot seat. This team is finally starting to show signs of being something other than a running butt fumble joke.

Hey! Look! Maybe Norv wasn't the reason the chargers can't close a game or a season.

The meteoric impact of the falcons hitting the turf in Atlanta is staggering. NO WAY I thought this was a 2-6 team.

Nick Foles is not Peyton, but he's not Vick either.

The lowly bucks lose again. Man... I think that Schiano should start packing.

You know how bad the steelers are? They let the Patriots score FIFTY FUCKING FIVE. A team with more rookies in skill positions than you would believe dropped 55 on the hapless steelers. It warms my shriveled heart.

Sooooo.... This trestman guy... He's a good coach ay? DA BEARS! (And GB's chances at a season just went to the hands of Seneca Wallace...)

I think the worst part has been all the NFL personnel blasting Martin for being weak, not being tough, telling on incognito, et al -- while remaining anonymous.

Can't wait for Chiefs vs. Broncos on Sunday Night Football! :)

Pats vs. Panthers on Monday Night Football should be good too, but the Chiefs game is gonna be talked up all week around here.

I saw that. It's pretty frekkin' cool, especially since it was a team thing, and not a league thing.


And now, on to another installment of my thoughts on the NFL weekend.

I told you Peyton was going to beat the Chiefs.
That was Pass INterference on Carolina. I don't care what the rules say. That was Bullshit. And I hate the Patriots.
This is the Browns team I thought we were going to see after the Trich Trade. It just took a little longer to show up than I thought.
A Muppet was the Browns Leader Rusher.
The Colts are a bizarre team.
But not as bizarre as the titans.
The Jets are showing that every week is an adventure with a RC QB.
And so are the Bills.
We learned that the NFL doesn't care about the weather. They'll wait it out, and so will their fans.
The Redskins are a mess, and Shanahan is fired at the end of the year.
The Eagles might end up winning the NFC E at 8-8.
The Lions don't like to win. They are allergic to it.
WTF happened to the bucs? 0-8 to a 2 game win streak? did schiano threaten to murder them? Oh, and how's that "we waive Bobby Rainey" working out Mr. Lombardi? You're an idiot.
The Cardinals have a winning record. definitely didn't see that coming
Did anyone watch the Raiders game? I mean... really? what a terrible game.
I told you, Norv Turner wasn't the problem in San Diego.
The Saints are going to meet the Ponies in the Super Bowl
Aaron Rodgers for MVP
The Seahawks are a a quiet 10-1. I didn't even realize they were 10-1 when I wrote that about the Saints.... Hm.... tough call.

Their o-line is coming back for the playoffs. Their defense has been great, and Wilson and Lynch have gotten some stuff done all on their own. If the returning starters can elevate their line play as they should, this is a championship calibre team.

edit: Oh, he's already got them back, plus Harvin. Minnesota isn't very good, but 41 points is.
