Cedric Benson died last night in a motorcycle accident.

KVUE reports that emergency services responded to calls about a motorcycle and car crash around 10:20 p.m in West Austin*. 
 According to police, a minivan pulled out of a crossroad and hit the motorcycle as it was driving by.    Both Benson and a woman in her 30s who was riding with him were declared dead at the scene.

Patriots cut their punter Ryan Allen for a rookie, Jake Bailey.  This will be the first time in 20 years Belichick has had a right-footed punter.  He's always thought left-footed kickers' punts are more difficult to catch because of the spin.

Allen is a heck of a punter.  Should have been in the running for Super Bowl MVP before Julian took over.

Must be nice to only have to worry about a damned punter.     :)

oh, it's all about health, anyway.  Give the Steelers some health the past couple of years, and they would have had about 3 more wins a season.  But also, for BB, give him some credit for depth, too.

well, they need a safety now too:

they have depth.  Harmon I guess is next man up, or they could get really confusing and put both McCourty's back there.  Chung always reminded me a bit of the guy from the Colts at their  peak - Bob Sanders?  Little guy who flew around and made big hits.  Dude broke in two :(

Luck is a smart guy who already has enough to live on- I’m guessing he finds another fulfilling career

Amazing that the top two picks of that draft were supposed to be the next superstar QBs and they're both finished

Better quarterbacks went late. Wilson at 75.
