Michael Crabtree and Jeremy Maclin both declare for the NFL Draft. Two very good WRs. I don't want Crabtree on the Seahawks because I don't want him torching our secondary, but I really like the guy and his overally game so it'd be a pleasure to have him in the NFC West.

Sam Bradford of OU, Matthew Stafford of Georgia, and Knowshon Moreno of Georgia turn pro as well. Both QBs are expected to be drafted high. Moreno is expected to be picked in the first.

Really exciting talent coming out this year. Can't wait..

Dwight Freeney fined for criticising officials...

Of course will all know, if u talk bad about the NFL, they will fine u. But Freeney has a point. That OT was incredibly rigged, which i usually do not say about the NFL. But that whole Ed Hochuli incident early in the season, i bet the NFL wanted to make up to the Chargers, and giving them a playoff win was the way to do it. here's the article, and bolded is what freeney said:
Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney was hit with a $20,000 fine by the NFL for his expletive-laced interview following last week's 23-17 overtime playoff loss to the San Diego Chargers.

The league cited Freeney for making "inappropriate comments on officiating," according to the Indianapolis Star.

Freeney, apparently frustrated by the three defensive penalties incurred as the Chargers made their game-winning drive, told Yahoo! Sports after the game: "Those were the worst [expletive] calls I've seen in a long time ... To have a game of that magnitude taken out of your hands, it's just disgusting. It's not like they made one [expletive] bad call -- it's three calls, in overtime ... They need to start investigating some other [expletive]."

I have to agree. Overtime was practically HANDED to the Chargers. Those were the worst phantom calls I've ever seen.

baltimore/tennessee game getting down and dirty early... these teams taking shots at one another each down.. although its nothing but punts, its looking good so far... especially for someone like me who loves watching dominant defenses in action.

The Titans lost because they didn't know how to take care of the ball. Turnovers killed them. They had a chance ALL game long to take control, but they always ended up turning over. In other words... they "fumbled" the game away.

Man, i'm loving this cardinals game... i've rooted for them all season, mainly for having warner, breaston, fitz, and breaston all on my fantasy team. I didnt choose them to win, but there are sure fun to watch.

And Delholmme should be benched

It's official, the Broncos hired Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as their HC. The news is expected to be announced tomorrow. He did a great job with the Pats offense, but just like any other Patriots coordinator that left for a HC job failed to do all that well. Although, I think this is a good one since McDaniels is good with QBs and WRs and having Cutler, Marshall, and Royal sure helps.

Also, Tony Dungy is expected to announce whether he'll be coaching the Colts next season or not tomorrow as well.

YES!!!! That means Raheem stays as a Buc (although the Rams are also considering him to be their HC, but seems like he's not among the faves).

It's about time we start doing something with our defensive staff. Between Kiffin and Bradley signing elsewhere, Raheem being promoted and Coyer being fired, we have to fill every position in that staff other than coordinator (if Raheem stays, that is).



About McDaniels... I don't know how I feel about the signing. I guess Crennel's tenure in Cleveland and Mangini's firing from NY raise some doubts about the Pats coordinators once they become head coaches (even tho I think Mangini is a good one). Only time will tell...

Now that Dungy has retired, it is time for the Colts to give Ron Meeks the head coaching job... he is a brilliant mind, and is pretty influencial like Dungy, and has been with that club for 6 seasons. That way, most of the staff, will probably stay in place (especially tom moore), and this team can once again have a shot of the title.

They would be foolish to go for someone outside the organization. Its not like Manning will be around forever. Do it Indy.

Edit... Immediately following this posting, i just realized that Dungy has chosen Jim Caldwell as his successor. I really think this is not to smart. Caldwell was gonna stay in the staff anyways (probably), Meeks is getting Head Coach interviews. PLus, they dont need an offensive head coach, as Manning is a genius and serves as a OC on his own, along with Moore, who is too old to go anywhere... I think Indy chose the wrong guy... they should of gone Defensive

Caldwell was chosen more than a year ago as Dungy's replacement, kinda like Mora's situation in Seattle. And he wasn't getting interviews because everybody knew he was going to be the Colts HC. Don't read anything in that lack of interviews.

Ahh i didnt know caldwell was an "in waiting" coach.. i think this whole, kinship system of next in line coaches is stupid, and will prove to be highly ineffective.

Im disappointed, they should of picked Meeks though. Dungy was a defensive minded coach, which brought good balance to the dominance of their offense over the years. They better hope Meeks stays on as D-Coordinator. If not, they're gonna regret it.
