Browns defense is going to be amazing. Offense just has to find a way to stay on the field for more than 20 minutes a game.

Didn't everyone say how awesome it was that Brady took less money so the Patriots could keep Welker and get him weapons?

Me to. If Amendola can stay healthy on the Pats he'll easily walk right into Welker's role.

A one year deal for Mendenhall in the prime of his career for a (comparatively) measly $2.5mm. My, how his stock has fallen.

Matt Cassel released. Good for him earning enough money to live on for the rest of his life, thanks to that year in NE.

Details of Wallace's contract with the Dolphins. $3.23 million cap hit this year. $17.25 million cap hit next year. :shock:

Good luck with that.

In another sign that the days of punishing, physical running backs like Jim Brown and John Riggins are coming to an end, the NFL is considering a rules change that would penalize runners for lowering their heads and initiating contact with tacklers.

Members of the NFL’s Competition Committee revealed today that they want to see a new rule that would make it a personal foul for either a runner or a tackler to engage in head-first contact with the crown of the helmet when running into each other outside the tackle box.

“This is a pure and simple player safety rule,” NFL Competition Committee Chair Rich McKay said. “We really think the time has come where we need to address the situation in space where a runner or a tackler has a choice of how to approach his opponent.”

They should just replace the ball with a frisbee. I think they are trying to match ultimate frisbee rules.

The game is quickly turning into modified rugby. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I've been watching the Six Nations thing on Saturdays after "Top Gear" on BBCA. I have no idea what's going on, but it's a bonkers sport to watch.

Back in 2003 there was some international tournament going on when I was in London. Wandered into a pub one afternoon and match was on. Didn't know anything about the sport, so I asked my barmates to explain things to me. That kicked off a round of practically everyone in the bar chiming in - simultaneously - explaining everything that happened as it happened, often contradicting each other. Served eff all helpful purpose, but it remains one of my favorite travel memories.

Rugby is simple really. My roommate taught me the game over a span of a 7's match.

i don't really mind any of tweaks they've made that facilitate player safety or bonkers passing numbers. the on-field product has been great - especially the gunslinging in the playoffs. it's just everything surrounding the on-field product that makes me ill.
