Oh goody, sourpuss got re-elected. Good thing he made that deal with the owners after all that talk of leverage during the lockout.

Shocker. I'll send him a bottle of lube for the next time the owners want something from him.

Great, Now we can get the cap sanction lifted at the owners meeting.

If this is the case, then that it very sick. The purpose in getting a back up QB is for insurance for when your starting QB is either too injured to play or to relieve him when his play leaves much to be desired. The purpose of attaining a back up QB is not to cause controversy and dilemma on purpose. That is absolutely insane and breeds dysfunction.

Seriously can anyone think of one free agent that signed with a new team he was projected to go to?
Whose projection?
I saw about umpteen different ones.
And I figured all along we would get Griffin.

I love it. (NOT a Jets fan is an understatement!)


I'd love to see Landry light up Sanchez in practice, trying to prove he's healthy...and both players end up with injuries...leaving Tebow as the starter.

Great pickup for them. Sit down Marion Barber.

I agree. On both points. Very good signing for them. Couple buddies of mine are huge Bears fans. They are happy.

The bears have made some pretty strong moves this off-season. Now, if only they'd fix that line, they might actually get somewhere...

I think this is par the course when people make projections about who is going to hire who.

But what is more fascinating and worth looking at is why folks made most of these projections: they were either made based on "connections"/networking or reputation, i.e Redskins land every Tier 1 (BIG ONES) free agent under the sun.
Now, I think we did land RGIII precisely because Jeff Fisher might have had a subconcious inkling to help his buddy out, so for once, networking did play a role for us.

It's Sanchez's job to lose. Jets probably intend to use Tebow to replace some of Brad Smith services because...last year's intended replacement did not do that well.

Besides, Sanchez should worry more about his already-wrecked relationship with Santonio Holmes moreso than what Tebow is going to do to him...and he should start milking Sparano's brain on how to get better almost immediately.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker

Ryan should call an open QB competition. Winner takes starting positon. Maybe it will light a fire under Sanchez and he will work harder and perform harder.
