They'll sign H.B. Blades as a backup to Larry Foote. Relax.

Butler said it'll be a miracle if spence can play in 2014. He already ruled him out for 2013

His careers over, a shame... Hopefully he's saved up the 2 years of NFL checks he'll get

Feel so bad for Spence. Dude had promise and the fact that it seems his career may be over before it even began is just so damn sad...

I pray he comes back. I don't really care how long it takes. Just wanna see the dude play again.

No surprise on Spence. Figured he'd at least be gone for 2013. Hopefully he gets to study and learn a lot, so if he ever heals, he can get onto the field.

Terrible title and one of the no-story fluff pieces, but I feel like the back-lash against Batch by some is a bit much

Guy did a good job here as a backup, usually won and rarely cost games

His time is up, but he had a good stint

What connection does Moorman have to Pittsburgh that put him on the front office's radar screen?

Dwyer had the 7th most broken tackles in football last year and did so on fewer touches. Redman led the NFL in broken tackle rate.

He's right, though he really should have been smarter in how he said what he said. Brady's completion percentage drops like a stone when he has to hold the ball more than 3 seconds.

The Bengals put 2-packs on sale today. I got 2 tix for $40 each to the Patriots and Ravens. I'll just list the Ravens game on Stubhub or Ticketexchange.

That being said, there were plenty of seats to MNF with the Steelers for 40. You'd have to buy their Browns game too, but I'm pretty sure you can make the $40 back selling somewhere.
