Kind of reminds me of the old Rodney Dangerfield line: "My high school football team. Now they were tough. After they sacked the quarterback they went after his family."

Because he is the only DT on the team that is worth a damn?

I wouldn't throw huge money at Williams, but he is definitely a big part of the defense when he is healthy.


no reason to rush into extending him now. id rather see what some of the young DTs like Guion and Ballard have. If both of those players show enough promise, KW will no longer be needed.

As for his contract, its very odd, since everywhere (especially Rotoworld) reported that KW had the option, but maybe the team never exercised it?

Anyway, im glad he is in the last year of his deal rather than having to pay him that bonus money he was suppose to get. I see this being his last season in MN, not much incentive for him to hang around a poor team at this point in his career. Heck, id even trade him now if a team came calling.


If we have another rough season we could be looking at taking the best DT available in the draft, then tag Williams and trade him?

not NFL, but CFL...



Those of us who only vaguely understand the subtle differences in the rules between Canadian football and American football can be pleasantly surprised to watch CFL highlights like this one, which shows Calgary Stampeders receiver Larry Taylor doing something that no NFL player will ever do.

Taylor scored a touchdown on a 125-yard return on Saturday, an accomplishment impossible in American football. Taylor caught a missed field goal 15 yards deep in the end zone (CFL end zones are 20 yards deep) and ran it back 125 yards for a touchdown — the CFL field is 110 yards long, 10 yards longer than the NFL field from goal line to goal line. Long plays like that one are a specialty of Taylor’s; he had a 122-yard return last year that was the CFL’s longest play of 2011.

WR Mike Wallace is not reporting for the start of training camp, and the Steelers’ response will be to suspend negotiations on a long-term contract, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

According to Bouchette, the Steelers are willing to let Wallace make the decision of whether he’ll sign his one-year, $2.7 million restricted free agent tender or stay away. If those are his two choices, Wallace will surely take option B, at least for now. Wallace only has to sign the tender by Week One to get his full base salary.

The end zones used to be 25 yards but they changed the rule because a lot of stadiums couldn't fit a regulation field.

The other thing to remember is that Canadian rules football awards a point for a missed FG or punt that is not brought out of the end zone, which is why you often see players run the ball out.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver O.J. Murdock committed suicide this morning in front of the Tampa high school he graduated from, according to the Tampa Police Department. He was 25 years old.

Murdock and Vikings' Jasper Brinkley were both at South Carolina in 2006 (although Murdock was booted that year for disciplinary reasons).

For those that might still have thought that Spielman should have taken Clausen instead of Chris Cook....

Quote:
Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen is no longer No. 2 in the program. And he’s also no longer No. 2 on the depth chart.

Clausen, the much-hyped Notre Dame quarterback who slid to round two in 2010 (48th overall) before being supplanted by Cam Newton in 2011, isn’t even Newton’s backup.


http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/08/clausen-slides-to-no-3/

It's certainly still early, but the returns on that QB class aren't large -

Sam Bradford (starter - St. Louis)
Tim Tebow (backup - Jets)
Jimmy Clausen (3rd String - Carolina)
Colt McCoy (on the outs in Cleveland)
Mike Kafka (backup - Philly)
John Skelton (backup - Arizona)
Jonathan Crompton (probably soon to be cut - Washington)
Rusty Smith - (3rd string - Tennessee)
Dan LeFevour - (currently in CFL)
Joe Webb (backup - Minnesota)
Tony Pike (Out of the NFL)
Levi Brown (in the CFL)
Sean Canfield - (3rd string - New Orleans)
Zac Robinson - (3rd string - Cincinnati)

I'm tracking my own personal NFL Power Poll...I won't post it every week, but will try to post it after every quarter of the season (i.e. prior to Weeks 5, 9, 13, and playoffs). I used to run a forum power poll in the Comparisons Forum, but found that to be too much work (and I have significantly less time to do that kind of stuff now). Here is my poll prior to Week 1. Let me know your thoughts:

1 New England Patriots
2 Green Bay Packers
3 San Francisco 49ers
4 Baltimore Ravens
5 NY Giants
6 New Orleans Saints
7 Chicago Bears
8 Atlanta Falcons
9 Denver Broncos
10 Pittsburgh Steelers
11 Houston Texans
12 Detroit Lions
13 Philadelphia Eagles
14 Dallas Cowboys
15 San Diego Chargers
16 NY Jets
17 Cincinnati Bengals
18 Buffalo Bills
19 Seattle Seahawks
20 Oakland Raiders
21 Kansas City Chiefs
22 Tennessee Titans
23 Carolina Panthers
24 Arizona Cardinals
25 Washington Redskins
26 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
27 Jacksonville Jaguars
28 Minnesota Vikings
29 Cleveland Browns
30 St. Louis Rams
31 Indianapolis Colts
32 Miami Dolphins

I would have the Eagles and Texans much higher and the Bears much lower.

David Akers just kicked a 63-yarder that bounced off the top of the crossbar and through.

Shocked

It's a long season and the 49ers are going to have their ups and downs like all the other teams.

However, this was a huge loss for the Packers because they're effectively two games behind the 49ers in the conference standings and the Packers have a tougher schedule.
