Dallas will be fine, Beast is right preseason doesn't mean **** and I've said in the past that I think having bad record in the preseason is more of an indicator that your team will be better in the regular season.

Pre-season play calls are beyond simple. They keep it that way so all the depth chart guys have equal opportunity. They could care less bout the win

BTW...

I just read on PFT that Brett Favre is already getting Ankle injections to get thru training camp/pre season.... I wonder if the Ironman will get thru a whole season. That Ankle could be more serious then first expected.

I've just discovered foxsports.com, I must say it shits all over ESPN & yahoo!!!

Great site to follow all the game scores on the one page

I personally steer clear of NFL and NBA websites (OFFICIAL)

Only due to Positive Propaganda from there newswires.... You need to visit a 3rd party so they can break the GOSSIP stories and incriminating ones.

In saying that... My original question/statement was about boxscores :-P That stuffs usually pretty standard.

Actually I believe the NFL censors itself the least of the major sports leagues - they know that the drama is good for attendance and ratings. Hard Knocks is a perfect example. The NFL is strict when it comes to their conduct policies, but you have to be in a league with 1700 players.

As far as box scores...? I don't really prefer one over the other - I always get the 9er games so there is no issue there. Any other score I care about I check on the in game ticker. Of course I live in the US and in my teams' media market so I can pretty much see all the 9ers, Giants and Warriors games live.

That cut made no sense, some one tell Pete Carrol he is no longer coaching the college game when you can cut guys for free, they still owe dude 7 million.

They have high hopes for Mike Williams( Ex USC Trojan) comeback but its a team sport they could have made room for TJ. I can see the raiders picking him up, i do wonder what went wrong.

Well, they're probably gonna sign Vincent Jackson, so they don't beed Housh to blabber around, when they have Golden, Butler getting better, and Mike Williams on a way to resurrect his career.

And Chargers signing Crayton pretty much means that Jackson is going to sign somewhere else real soon.

Good heads up, did not know Vincent Jackson was in the mix with Seahawks, read more in that and the an article claims he is willing to take a 1 year deal about 7 million, interesting to see how things turn out over in Seatle.
