Envisioning Teddy in a different kind of anguish, non-physical.

I know this is probably a forward-looking contract, but if I'm looking to sign the first $25M QB, Derek Carr is not the one I'd give it to. He's been decent, but he isn't worth that kind of cash to me at this point. He's not even a top-10 QB in almost all statistical categories.

Derek Carr is now the highest paid player in the entire NFL.

Ridiculous....just like this one.

In a surprise announcement at what is ordinarily the slowest time of the year in the NFL, the Chiefs have fired General Manager John Dorsey.

Now, I've never been a fan of Dorsey's, since he's made some odd selections in the draft, but I don't think his firing was warranted at this point. And if they just give Reid the reins, expect them to drop like a rock in a year or 2, just like he did in Philly.

Virtually every QB who signs a new deal becomes the highest-paid player in the league as the cap continues to rise.

This is super cool for people in other countries or that can't otherwise receive NBC/CBS. I don't see it changing the way I view the games. I'll stick with over the air. It still has superior quality and attributes (I can record it and replay as I see fit)

Adam Vinatieri has played so long that he now has Colts teammates born the same year he began his career. Vinatieri, 44, enters his 22nd season still going strong.

With a playoff game on the line I would want Vinatieri in position to kick the winning field goal in the waning seconds!!!!

Any NFL fan knows that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has caught a lot of passes, but many may not realize just how high on the all-time career catches list Witten is. In fact, within the first couple games of the regular season, Witten is likely to be the No. 4 receiver in NFL history.

Witten currently ranks seventh, with 1,089 career catches. But hes only 14 catches away from passing three Hall of Famers: No. 6 Tim Brown (who has 1,094 catches), No. 5 Cris Carter (1,101) and No. 4 Marvin Harrison (1,102). If Witten catches passes this season at the same rate he did last season, hell move ahead of Harrison and into fourth place all time in Week Four.

Wow, that is impressive. Hard not to like a player like Witten.

This gives me an ominous feeling more than anything. The Thursday games are completely unnecessary and a bad idea, because they give the players less time to rest and increase the risk of them getting injured, but the league doesn't really care. It's all about the bottom line for them, and now that this deal is done, the Thursday games aren't going anywhere. Sad
