    Does anyone know where the Cardinals can get a decent QB and a Left Tackle for a reasonable price? No one here is playing like they want the QB job and we have ZERO depth at LT.

      This isn't exactly "NFL", but it is high school football in Texas:  $60,000,000.00 for a &^$$&-in high school football field in the Collin County town right next door to me, Allen, TX.

      BTW:  the UT-Austin coach, Mac Brown, is the highest-paid "public servant" in the Republic of Texas:  $5 MM/year + "extras".
       
      As a native of Pittsburgh, a town which has produced a few decent HS players that went on to "bigger things":  Unitas, Lujack, Namath, Blanda, Kelly, Montana, Marino (just to name a few from just one position that come readily to mind), I really have to laugh at my adopted home state of Texas.

            Where I teach economics here in Texas every faculty member is issued a Mac Air and every student is issued a MacBook.  The entire campus is a wiFi "hot zone".  (Thank you, taxpayers!!!)
             
            I guess Allen's coach is just "old school" on the field, but his office is no doubt a Digital Disneyland.

                Given the current situation with the regular game officials, I found this story to be pretty interesting.

                  Great story! I've always liked the way he calls a game. I didn't realize he was here in AZ. If I ever need a lawyer, he's my guy! Since he's temporarily unemployed and wants to work, maybe he can play QB for the Cardinals!

                    I guess I just haven't caught the spirit of the season yet. Watching Peyton Manning in those Orange jerseys, playing ten minutes then sitting down just doesn't make me want to cheer for Denver this year.  The Colts do have some potential, but I feel the lack of Team-personality when I watch them on the field.  And I have yet to find a Green Bay game, so I can't even identify with the folks in Wisconsin (two of my kids are transplanted Hoosiers).
                       So far this looks like a "5 on a 10 scale" season coming.
                     
                    Even the upcoming U of Louisville vs Kentucky football opener is sounding duller and duller as ISAAC brings some needed rain to town the day of the game.

                      I agree!
                      I don't see any team that's head and shoulders above anyone else.
                      The NFL will blame it on "Parity"
                      May the best team that has the fewest injuries win because that's probably what's gonna happen.
                      I can see a team with a 8-8 record or even a team with a losing record get in the playoffs. PLAYOFFS?????????????

                        I'm wondering what The Commish will be spinning about the "integrity" of the game after the substitute refs start blowing calls in games that count.

                          After watching the redskins play last sunday I may have to take back some of my mocking Dan (the little man) Snyder for giving up 3 #1's for RGIII
                           
                          It is exceedingly rare for a QB to make the jump to the pros and play the same game he did in college.  RGIII pulled that off in his first game and for the sake of my good friends back in NOVA I hope he keeps it up and stays healthy.

                            Heard a good one on the radio the other day down here in Dallas:
                             
                            The Cowboys are going eleven and five this season:  11 indictments and 5 convictions!
                             
                            (Or maybe not, Jerry Jones has hired a "body man" to be with Dez Bryant 24/7!).

                                  After the Packers/Hawks debacle, I've had it. I'm not watching another NFL game until they get real refs back on the field.

                                      While the final call was blown on the field, the replay official was by rule not allowed to correct it.  That might be something for the Rules Committee to look into.

                                        All of the games i watched, from Sunday's to Monday night's game were a travisty. While the commissioner can over rule things( read NFL rules) it wont be done.I have just applied to be a ref. I could have done a better job.However, Brad, there were 3 officials on the field saying different things. THAT should not be allowed, under the rules.Especially high school refs. The NFL should never allowed this to happen.

                                          My favorite picture on the internet today.  It has the ref from last night saying, "After further review, the runner missed second base....Touchdown Celtics."

                                            After the REAL Ref's get back, I don't ever want to hear anyone Booing a Ref again. Those guys are Saints by comparison!

                                              Is Romo really that terrible? And how much does Jerry pay those butterfingered receivers?  Wow.

                                                The Bears  do find there way onto my Positive vote list...In the top 5  and far ahead of Dallas, so I am quite happy with the results of tonight's game.  I watch and sometimes 'cheer'  the Packers, The Colts, then Peyton and the Bronco's and Eli and the Giants, then 'Da Bears'... followed by the rest...With Atlanta at the bottom of the list tied with Philly for "my never will support" teams.

                                                  He might be a Steeler for now but I think this guy has a future with the Cowboys or Bengals...and since he's just a rookie he could go on to put up some impressive stats!

                                                      The AZ Cardinals may have a new QBack!!!!!!!!!
                                                      The Indianapolis Colts have waived quarterback Chandler Harnish, the 2012 Mr. Irrelevant, so they could sign tight end Weslye Saunders.

                                                          I'm trying to watch the Steelers/Skins game, but those Steeler throwbacks are making it difficult!

                                                            Egads...the Steelers actually had that fashion nightmare as the official uniform at one time?!?
                                                             
                                                            I can't believe the Bears pulled it out - they were just terrible for the majority of the game.
