    The RGIII trade will have NFL historians searching for new descriptions.  As the Herschel Walker trade is known as "The Great Train Robbery", perhaps this will be "The Brinks Job". 
     
    Or maybe Danny "the midget megalomaniac" Snyder and his boot-licking lackeys will become known as "The Gang who Couldn't Shoot Straight" (if they aren't already).
     
    In any case, RGIII will make Redskins fans forget Desmond Howard (they wasted only one #1 on him).  He'll be the second coming of Kordell "Slash" Stewart.

      I was a Broncos fan many years ago...Guess I need to dust off my Blue and Orange stuff...I am pleased that Peyton Manning has found a new home.

        How much you wanna bet the Broncos change their Uniforms with the advent of the arrival of the Messiah?
        Let's see---- Broncos are horses---Horses wear Horseshoes-----That's it! Let's put horseshoes on the Bronco's Uni's!!

                Roger Goodell has brought the hammer down on the Saints and former d-coordinator Gregg Williams something fierce.  Could be a down year in New Orleans...

                  Elway usedto be 6" taller. Defensive Linemen jumping on top of your head tend to drive your head into your butt!

                    Far out prediction...The Redskins sign Sanchez, trade the #2 or Draft RG111, then trade him for more high draft choices.... gotta run, got some guy who says he was a defensive co ordinator for a bunch of NFL teams applying for a job, can you imagine that!

                      First and goal, I'd definitely prefer Tebow to Sanchez (or to most other QB's in the NFL). 
                       
                      For the other 90 yards I'd prefer Sanchez (or most other QB's in the NFL).
                       
                      Talk about your "role player":  that's a helluva "role" to be able to play.  Tebow has found his NFL niche. 
                       
                      Smart move by the Jets, especially for just a 4th. round pick.

                        Peyton is 6'6"; Elway is 6'3".  Two of the three inch difference is due to Peyton's long neck.

                          The Saints got the NFL version of the death penalty...going to be a long season in NOLA.

                                Yes, there was much more than a 3" difference. Looked like more than 6" difference to me.

                                  Maybe Peyton was in Lucchese boots while Elway was wearing his businessman's Allen-Edmonds.
                                   
                                  Or maybe Peyton was standing on his bank-book.

                                      This was the photo I saw. Bigger neck. Bigger forehead. The bounty hunter Saints failed to pound Manning into the ground in the Super Bowl.

                                          Word on the street;
                                          Ditka's coming back to coach the Aint's.

                                          Just in time to spend another entire draft on one player!?!
                                          Wait!  Dan Snyder already beat him to it ... and more.
                                          In any case, does the "street" know that Ditka turns 73 in October?

                                          Marv Levy, George Halas, Paul Brown were "Seniors" too when they coached!
                                          Wisdom of the ages!


                                          Nothing against my fellow Pittsburgher, Ditka.  But he is no Dick LeBeau when it comes to the "X's & O's".  Never has been.  As a leader and disciplinarian he has had some fine moments.  Maybe that's just what the Saints need at this point: discipline and to let Brees call his own plays.  Just keep Mike away from personnel decisions, otherwise they may as well hire Mike Singletary to drop his pants (not to confuse this with the 3" - 6" difference between Manning & Elway).

                                            Once upon a time long, long, ago there was a season when neither the
                                            Packers nor the Bears made the post season playoffs. It seemed so
                                            unusual, that the management of both teams got together and decided that
                                            there should be some sort of competition between the two teams because
                                            of their great rivalry. So, they decided on a week long ice fishing
                                            competition. The team that catches the most fish at the end of the week
                                            wins. So, on a very cold day on a northern Wisconsin lake they began
                                            their contest. At the end of the first day, after eight hours of
                                            fishing, the Packers had caught 100 fish and the Bears had 0. By the end
                                            of the second day the Packers had caught 200 fish and the Bears 0. That
                                            evening the Bears coach got his team together and said, "I suspect some
                                            kind of cheating is taking place". The next morning he dressed one of
                                            his players in green and gold and sent him over to the Packer camp to
                                            act as a spy. At the end of the day he came back to report to the coach.
                                            The coach asked "Well, how about it, are they cheating?" "They sure
                                            are," the player reported, "They're cutting holes in the ice".

                                              Tebow to the Jets will be a disaster! 1st, that locker room already has enough controversy. It doesn't need anymore. 2nd, Sanchez has enough confidence issues as it is without having to look over his shoulder all year. The NY media is going to be very unkind to both Qb's and that is putting it politely. Also, an interesting tidbit I.saw yesterday, last time the giants won the superbowl the Jets signed Favre in the offseason. This year, tebow. We are starting to see a pattern.

                                              As for the Saints, well we will see how bad it is when the player penalties come down, but right now they won't have both their headcoach and OC for the first 6 games until the OC is reinstated. This is the curse of the superbowl hosting city. Much like the maddened curse, every year since I believe 2002 a major injury to the team's Qb has happened (peyton this past season, romo the season before) this year the SB in NO and instead of brees going down the whole team is.

                                              I think the rams are the ones really hurt by this if they didn't know Williams was being investigated. I think they should be compensated the rams lost draft pick.

                                                The Rams shouldn't be "piggy".  Dan "the midget man" Snyder has already filled their trough to the brim.

                                                  Far out prediction...The Redskins sign Sanchez, trade the #2 or Draft RG111, then trade him for more high draft choices....


                                                  Considering that the Jets just signed Sanchez to a contract extension (3 years IIRC) I'd say you're definitely far out!

                                                    In all this Denver going ons there is a quarterback, Adam Webber, who may come out smelling like a rose. He is a University of Minnesota alum undrafted and placed on Denver's practice squad last year as the 4th QB. Now he is the only other QB on Denver's roster. Maybe Denver is high on him. Webber played 4 years for a really lousy head coach at Minnesota and had a different offensive coordinator every year. At times he showed great talent and set many Gopher passing records but was hampered his whole collegiate career in consistent development.

                                                      The more I think about it, the Jets pulled a genius move by getting Tebow.  He may invent a new "specialty": the 1st. & goal QB
                                                       
                                                      He can be an inside runner, a "sneaker", an outside runner, a lead blocker, a wildcat faker, and even an occasional passer.  He gives the defense so much more "to think about" deep in the Red Zone.
                                                       
                                                      How many QB's can run over a linebacker?  How many QB's would even try?  This could be as revolutionary as a kicker who could dependably hit from 70.  Truly, the Red Zone is, and has been, Tebow's "comfort zone".

                                                          You're right, how do you stop Tebow on a sweep from the 2 with a pulling guard.  Any hole between the snap and the pylon, he's through it like quicksilver or runs over a free safety or linebacker.  Who, on the move, is going to stop that "load" running with a head of steam at the pylon?  Pop Warner lives!

                                                            They have to actually make it to the red zone before that can happen.
