    I didn't see one so I apologize if this is a copy.

    Looks like the Jets will let Chad Pennington lead them to their 5-11 record.

    A healthy Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush backfield could be pretty damn exciting to watch.

    Why are the Falcons trying to plug a west coast offense when the talent is a vertical passer with receivers who thrive in the vertical passing game. Michael Vick has taken a lot of hits recently from all forms of media and fans but anyone with two eyes can see that putting this kid in an offense where the main play is a five-yard curl is a waste of time.

    K.C. makes a smart trade to get insurance for LJ.

    Keeping an eye on Philip Rivers in the preseason.

    Over/under on when T.O. and Drew Bledsoe get into a physical confrontation. Week 4...I give the edge to Bledsoe since T.O. will probably have the carcass of Ed Werder welded to his asshole.

    I wonder if that will be enough to cover for the loss of both starting tackles from last season, including one who's a lock for the HOF. LJ's good, but that's going to sting some.

    Wonder how long it's gonna take for the Texans to realize Mario Williams is a solid No. 3 pick - not a No. 1 overall when Reggie Bush is/was on the board?

    How many more times will Brett Favre say he's never been on such an inexperienced team before?

    Can "Me"Shawn truly play second fiddle to Steve Smith in Carolina?

    Will Bobby Carpenter prove to the Cowboys that he's the best rookie OLB?

    Michael Bennett, who's always had promise. He just never reaches it.

    Losing Roaf right before training camp absolutely sucks. No doubt about that. Poor luck on the offensive line seems to follow Herm wherever he goes.

    I suppose Bruschi's a lock for Comeback Player of the Year already with this injury. What a hero.

    What was that ridiculous stat ESPN created for his miraculous return? Like "in on the play" or something.

    If you can't handle a 5-yard curl, you're not much of a quarterback.

    For some reason, I'm curious to see what Lendale White will do in Titans camp, as well as DeAngelo Williams for the Panthers.

    Also, I'm curious to see if Javon Walker will regain his form with Jake Plummer throwing him the ball.

    Finally, I'm keeping a tally of Favres INTs.

    The camp coverage in Pittsburgh is such overkill, I'm beginning to -- ever so slightly -- dislike the Steelers. :-\

    - Murder? Blah, blah, blah.
    - Night club shooting? Yawn.
    - "Big Ben" tossing a football behind a photo of him tossing a football? Now that's news!

    One local TV station did a piece on said photo...unreal.

    Agreed on the 5-yard curl to an extent, the point is draft talent to work in the west coast offense rather than a long-ball QB and a bunch of deep threat receivers.

    I think White starts by Week 4.

    Favre interception total...34

    Vick wasn't drafted by the current staff.

    But I can't explain the receivers, although I think Jenkins could fit the WC mold.
