NFL Regular Season 2009
« on: February 13, 2009, 04:05 PM »
I just heard that the Falcons are trying to trade the rights to Vick now. Who is going to want to trade for an overrated QB that hasn't played in years and is still suspeneded? Even if a team wants (I wanted to say is dumb enough) to trade for him some day wouldn't they wait to see what the NFL is going to do when he does get out of prison?

I am crossing my fingers that Jerry Jones' blackberry is broken and he is away from his office until Al Davis makes that deal...

Was he ever that good anyway?  Let's say he gets out tomorrow and there are no penalties from the NFL, is there a team that currently has a worse option at QB?  Well I suppose there's always the Vikings...

He absolutely was never very good. AND DON'T JOKE ABOUT THE VIKINGS GETTING HIM. I don't care how bad T Jack is.

Just heard that Goodell took a $2 million pay cut to help the NFL from having to cut more jobs. Good for him. I like him more than I did before.

Vikings close to deal for QB Rosenfels

I could deal with that!!!

I'll try not to think about the fact that the Vikings could have made the exact same trade last offseason and what that could have meant this last season. :-\

Haynesworth to the Skins.... Bucs just traded for Kellen Winslow - reportedly a second round pick (which makes no sense to me).

Vikings close to deal for QB Rosenfels

I guess Jackson isn't that good, but is this that much of a step up?  Rosenfals played ok in those games, but not really stellar.  I guess I'm asking if this will make a difference? 

Any word yet on who/when the Vikings get the home opener?

I'm not saying that Rosenfel is the best QB ever, but he actually can throw a ball and with the Vikings running game and defense that is what they need. They weren't going to get a super star, but the fact they are admitting T Jack isn't their future makes me so happy.

No comments on the Patriots? They shipped Matt Cassel off to Kansas City for a few draft picks, so I'm assuming they have a lot of faith in Tom Brady next season. They also signed Fred Taylor I assume because their running game is meh.

Also Kurt Warner is going to meet with the 49ers sometime soon.

The Cassel thing is killing me.  Reportedly the Bucs offered more than the single 2nd round pick that the Chiefs did so they could get Cassel and trade him to Denver for Cutler.

But apparently it took too long and Belichick went forward with KC.

The idea that a QB like Cutler may have been available and it didn't happen kills me.  Now the rumors are that Cutler is pissed and wants out.  And if he does, he'd better end up in Tampa.  I don't care if it costs this year's 1 and 3 and next year's 1.




Also, the Bucs just signed Derrick Ward.  Between Ward, Bryant, Winslow, Graham, and maybe Williams, the Bucs are starting to actually compile some playmakers on offense.  And, they've invested heavily in their O-line over the last 3 years. 

Now all they need is a QB, or for Luke McCown to be better than advertised.

I heard on the radio tonight that Houshmanzadeh was traded to Seattle.  That effectivley eliminates any interest I have in fantasy players from Cinci or Seattle next season.   :P

He wasn't traded.  He was a free agency and chose Seattle over Minnesota and Cinci.
