I couldn't believe the contract they gave Flacco.

I know everyone says "he won the Super Bowl". So did Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson. I wouldn't have paid either of them a hundred million.

 

I'm not defending that contract he received, but I'd hardly put him in with Dilfer or Johnson in the postseason. 11 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions to go with a Lombardi is hardly something to scoff at. That is a pretty different Ravens team from just a year ago as well.

Solidifying the softest franchise in the league! Great work ATL!

Congrats to former Panther RB Tauren Poole for getting signed by the Steelers to their off-season roster today.

Quarterbacks will get big contracts as long as there are not enough of them for every team to have a franchise guy. All one team has to do is not pay them and they will simply go to someone else in need.  Anyone think Jacksonville or Houston would pick a guy like Flacco if he were available.

Fun (or not so fun, depending on your perspective) fact: Panther CB Josh Thomas was drafted eleven picks before Richard Sherman.

 

Mind you, not by us.  Thomas was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys at pick # 143 (fifth round).  Sherman was selected at pick #154 by Seattle.

 

Sadly, that particular piece of trivia doesn't get us off the hook,  seeing as we spent our top pick in the fourth round on CB Brandon Hogan and the first pick in the fifth on WR Kealoha Pilares :(

The Rams fired DC Tim Walton and may be replacing him with Gregg Williams, who must not be as toxic for them a year later.

This is pretty much official, being reported everywhere.

 

With Fisher and Williams, the dirty plays will be at an all time high.

I was being sarcastic :lol:

 

I think they're just trying to look like they didn't make a huge mistake by letting Rob Ryan go and hiring Kiffin.

Start the speculation: Delanie Walker referred to 6 "cancers" that ruined the Titans last season
