Also why I am I scared of the mouse that I just caught in a glue trap? Seriously this thing is freaking me out. He/she keeps on making squeaking noises whenever I go into the living room. I can get someone to dispose of it in the morning but I'm scared it'll gnaw its legs off before then. Of course it'll be dead in 5 days considering how much poison it ate. Michael Vick ain't got shit on me.

My life is falling apart
And in related news, Dirtbag's mouse just got offers from the Vikings, the 49ers, and the Steelers to play RB, contracts are rumored to be 5-yrs, 60Mill., with 20 Mill. guranteed. LOL.

Dude was the #4 overall pick.
He's been playing in a 3-4 as a nose tackle. He hasn't done a good job handling double teams, but I think he could be pretty effective as a 4-3 DT. The Jets just gave an assload of money to Kris Jenkins, and here's my comparison between the two:

The Jets gave 3rd and 5th round picks , and 5 years $35M to essentially the same guy as Robertson.

Robertson in 5 seasons: 256 total tackles, 14.5 sacks, and has only missed 3 games.

Jenkins in 7 seasons: 215 total tackles, 20.5 sacks, and missed 27 games!

Plus Jenkins is an injury prone malcontent with a history of coming to camp overweight and missing offseason workouts. And he's two years older than Robertson, and has never played in a 3-4. Robertson has a $9.8M cap number this year and doesn't appear willing to restructure, making a successful trade for him unlikely. So if the Jets have to cut him, they'll take a big cap hit in addition to the huge contract they gave Jenkins.

I don't want Robertson, but I don't think the Jets made a very good move here.

Bengals Reach For Odom
By Chris Maier | March 3rd, 2008
E-mail | Print | Share

Hours after watching their trade for an impact defensive tackle fall through, the Bengals announced the signing of DE Antwan Odom to a five year deal. According to Bengals.com the deal is approximately 5 years and $30 million with around $11 million guaranteed. While some (including Sporting News) rated Odom the top defensive end in the free agent class the signing rings hollow after watching not one but two trades fall through. The optimist sees Odomís 8 sacks in 2008. The realist sees his 21 total tackles and realizes the sacks along side Pro Bowlers Kyle VandenBosch and Albert Haynesworth. Odom is only 26 and may have a bright future but I canít stop picturing Reinard Wilson. Donít forget John Thornton played well for those same Titans along side Jevon Kearse only to be average at best in Cincinnati.

The Bengals defense has lacked an impact defensive tackle since Tim Krumrie departed nearly a generation ago. That also marked the last time the Bengals fielded a capable defense. Sure, you can argue Robertson hasnít produced much to date either but i beg to differ. Robertson has been miscast in a 3-4 defense and appeared on the cusp of breaking through before Mangini force-fed the 3-4 down the Jets throats (much to the dismay of Robertson and Jonathan Vilma). Defensive tackles are much harder to draft (bust city) and finding a productive one in his prime would have been a coup. The Bengals can hope for Sedrick Ellis or Glenn Dorsey to fall to them at #9 in the draft but neither is likely. Top defensive ends Philip Merling and/or Derrick Harvey will be however.

Agreed. The NFL propaganda machine might have jumped the gun on proclaiming Bush the next star RB or the next Barry Sanders.

Lol, Mickey is a scatback that is capable of finding and getting through holes the size of a dime. Steve Hutchinson says "it's great because the defense can't see him when he gets the ball. He's almost as short as Maurice Jones-Drew."
