1. Don't get married
2. Live off of 15% of your salary and put the rest in a safe mutual fund.
3. Don't have baby mamas.
4. Don't get married.
1)Get married ,just find someone who knows who you are and visa/ versa
2)Diversify your investments ,and don't buy a bar or resturant
3) Grow Up,parting and drinking all night always ends in trouble
4)treat Joe Public,like you would want to be treated.
5) keep your d#$% in your pants,and nothing up your nose.

Terrel Thomas to return to Camp Without Surgery.

“The suggestion on the part of the group of doctors that have looked at Terrell Thomas is that we try to rehab him and see how he does and if he can get back on the field to do so,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He’s coming back to camp. He’ll jump into a rehab program. We’ll watch him very, very closely. We’ll hopefully accelerate his… the strengthening of the knee and see how soon he can join us and we’ll hope for the very best


.....good news for him and NY.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

^ No it's not. We've learned from LaRon Landry that when a player needs surgery and tries the rehab route, he never gets better.

His knees are garbage, he needs to take some time off and get them fixed.

Good news for the Redskins.

Giantone, I don't think I've ever agreed with you more. Or ever agreed with you for that matter. J/K ; )

1. 90% of women are greedy and marry rich to help themselves. Tom Brady did it he right way. He married someone that makes ore than him.
2. True
3.The players are young and rich, they're gonna party. Just do it responsibly
4. True
5. Are you kidding me?

If what I heard about the contract is accurate, there is no down side to signing Owens in Seattle.

One year contract, based on ten year vet minimum. Owens knows his role going in. He understands is is the #3 WR. He knows he won't be getting many touches a game.

And if he tanks or opens his trap, Carroll can release him with minimal cap hit.

How much is the ten year vet minimum though?

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Its amazing the Jets get this much press for such a shit team. Even when they were decent they were pretty much overrated. PFT is running a headline: Rex makes the Jets run laps after more practice fights. Give me a effing breaking, the ESPN coverage is pathetic enough. The Jets are garbage, they might be the worst team in their division, its a realistic possibility.

The media vultures are circling the Jets because they know the implosion/meltdown is imminent this year. All the flammable pieces are in place (Sanchez new contract, Tebow, Holmes attitude, Revis contract..etc) and the only thing that remains is a single spark to watch it all go up in smoke. I assure you, this fall is going to worth it. :cool-smil

How much worse (or better) would it have been if the Jets had done Hard Knocks this year! Such a shame to let such good drama go to waste.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

When Ryan was first hired, I said he would be great for a couple of years but that, in the not too distant future, it's all going to implode. He started with whole it's "us against the world, no one respects us", chip on the shoulder, play by our own rules thing - that works great initially and as long as there is success. Unfortunately, it also encourages players to blame everybody but themselves. I believe we have entered that phase and hope to enjoy it immensely.

Never liked Buddy 'cause I thought he was an arrogant ass. Never liked Rex or Rob 'cause I thought they learned their sportsmanship from dad. The concept "win with class" is simply foreign to the entire clan.

I intend to get a bag of popcorn and enjoy the Rex Ryan Kabomb. I only hope it can live up to my expectations.

He signed for 1M. But is only guaranteed 65K. And he only gets that guaranteed is he makes the team and is on the 53-man roster at the end of week 1.

Up until that time, if he screws up Seattle can cut him and take zero cap hit.
