Pitchers and Catchers Report

The fact that the season does not open in Cincinnati is all that is wrong with the game.

It should go further than that, Belicheck should be suspended. If HGH for erectile dysfunction get you 5 this should get you at least 6. And chants of cheater should follow the team where ever they play (and I was a pats fan too).

Colts are Superbowl Bound.

Anyone else catch the post game where Boomer Esiason was going on and on about how Manning has a chance to win a Super Bowl and finally be one of the greats. And then he kept going and on and on about how a career isn't complete without the championship? Marino was just sitting there stewing, you could almost read his mind, "I'm gonna kill you Norman, and you never won either!"

Tom Brady Blitzes Yahoo!

From what I read at pro football talk, players have control over single players images/likeness but once it gets to be 6 or more players it is in the hands of the NFLPA (and this image is of 6). Don't know yet if Yahoo has a deal with NFLPA though

The good, the bad, and the in between.

I have nothing but respect for Mike Brown (Bengals). He took a tough situatuion (an estatte tax dodge his father set up before his death) and rode it out in the 3rd smallest market. If it wasn't for this creative work around the Brown's would have had to sell the team and there is little chance that they would have remained in Cincinnati.

20 minutes later the doctor was tripping all over himself saying that he was quoted out of context. He meant an injury like this CAN be career ending but is optomistc about Palmer Plus, isn't it illegal for doctors to talk about a patient's medical status?
