The offseason has begun so we might as well have this available.

Looks like RGIII measure out at 6'2 3/8" 223lbs at the combine. He's passed the height hurdle, now lets see how he does in the running drills as he doesn't plan to throw at the combine nor will Andrew Luck.

Stone Hands Garcon has rejected Indianapolis' contract offer. There's one wide receiver who will change teams. I wouldn't mind if Cleveland picked him up.

They better have a good QB in Cleveland. Garcon was a bust without Peyton Manning throwing him the ball. He all but disappeared this past season. I'm not sold on him yet.

He had Curtis Painter throwing to him most of the season. No more need be said.

I think Manning made his receivers look a lot better than they really were.

They might get him at #4. I'm dont think the Rams are looking at a QB. I'm not sure about the Vikes though.

They just drafted Ponder last year in the first. I can't imagine them drafting a qb again. Kalil, Blackmon, Jeffrey or Reiff makes the most sense for the Vikings, at least in my mind. Take that for what little it may or may not be worth.

The Rams are going to sell the second pick to the highest bidder. Cleveland makes the most sense, with both the fourth and twenty-second pick to offer. The Rams could still fill a massive need at four by taking Blackmon and they could also take the best available tackle at twenty-two to help keep Bradford from getting murdered any further.

So Mike Tolbert is a free agent. He doesn't merit the franchise tag, so he'll hit the open market. If Cleveland lets Cover Boy leave, Tolbert would be a good addition. I love watching him run over dudes.

NO is about to get hammered by the NFL for running a "bounty" program. It appears Gregg Williams was running the program and Sean Payton was aware of it and didn't do anything to put an end to it. They will probably end up getting fined and losing draft picks.

I don't find it so bad that there was a "pay for performance" thing going on, like for INTs or whatever, but payouts based on causing injuries is definitely wrong.

Yep, hurting somebody for no reason is plain wrong

So, is your favorite player Bernard Pollard?

2008 - hit causes Brady's leg injury.
2009- Welker tries to dodge Pollard and blows out knee.
2011 - hit causes Gronklowski's ankle injury.

Nah, I couldn't really think of an NFL team I didn't like so I took the easy out and picked an easy target.

The Saints should lose their franchise tag.  That'll hurt them more than losing draft picks, especially this year.

They are already without a first rounder. If this is serious enough they should get players suspended and lose more draft picks.

I think he tried to do it with the Bills, but they never could tackle and so none of them earned a dime.

The part that has never made sense to me in regards to defenders trying to light up the opposing players is that it isn't good football technique. I couldn't begin to count the number of times I've seen a defender try to crush a running back or receiver and either bounce off or miss completely. Instead of using one's body as a battering ram, how about using one's arms to actually TACKLE the opposing players and prevent them from getting more yardage instead of just trying to hurt them?
