I haven't seen any of those yet, probably because Fox Sports is the only unblocked NFL related site at work and I can't even load it on my computer due to how outdated my computer is. This is pretty much my go-to place for news when I'm at work lol.

You are misinformed. The Hornets didn't move away because it was a small market. It was due to the fact that George Shinn wanted a brand new stadium after about 6 years into the league and the Charlotte taxpayers weren't going to foot the bill. He became despised (and still is) that people stopped going to the games just to spite him (including playoff games). Before that time, the Hornets were among the league leaders in attendance.

The only reason nobody cared about the Panthers is because it was a expansion team. Hell, Los Angeles can't even gather more interest in a NFL team than the Panthers can.

Then you'll have to take my word for it when I say that the 49ers cut Patrick Willis and we signed him to a vet min contract.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

i guess peyton figured out the cards couldn't pay him AND have a good team... I imagine he'll look at the 49ers too if they can't work out a deal with smith. SF is really the place to be.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

It'd be funny to see Manning wearing the black and silver.

I'm sure Buffalo and Minnesota are out of the question.

No shit! Well that solves our middle linebacker situation for the next decade! Woohoo! The 49ers are crazy though.

There's no way anyone can claim that DC isn't considered one of the busiest media towns in the nation, up there with NYC and LA.

Charlotte is small potatoes.



The QB of the Redskins is always a big headline-grabber, even with bad and mediocre QBs. Look how much attention McNabb drew from the national media when he came to town. It's going be that times infinity when RG3 suits up.
This is very weird sports media market. It's football and quarterback specific, as you've pointed out. For a team that has been a perennial loser over the past 15-20 years, we probably garner as much national attention as any team in the NFL. In part, because of the team's rich legacy and also due to Dan Snyder's splurging during free agency.

Probably the best thing for that franchise but Gene Smith (Jags GM) apparently hates the idea of Tebow being his QB more then Elway.
