    The Flacco deal doesn't have a lot of guaranteed money though and if IIRC the cap hit this year is only $7m which shouldn't affect their other free agents much.

    The female kicker failed miserably. Boy were those kicks bad. I know she hurt her leg, but her approach was very odd. For a soccer player she didn't appear to have a soccer style approach.

    she was also, as she put it, rather out of practice.

    Who the hell tries out for the NFL when you're "out of practice"?
    This stinks of publicity stunt or something worse.

    to some degree yes. she's not kicked for, i think the article said, at least four years. the one that was linked to earlier. might have been more, maybe less. but that's pretty freaking out of practice.

    @solojones What do you think about our 5-yr deal with Bowe? Glad we could use the tag on Albert too, hopefully lock him up next offseason with a stronger line.

    I'm happy with the offseason so far.

    Seems like the NFL doesn't see how the economics of AEG's downtown L.A. stadium proposal will work at all. So it looks like a "no-go" for the NFL.

    Seems kind of amazing that the NFL is doing so well financially and is so powerful that it doesn't really need the nation's second largest TV market. Having a team there would just merely be icing on the cake at this point.

    I have to believe there's some defensive player out of the SEC or something who's worth the #1. Though if they trade down for multiple other round picks, I don't think I'd mind that all that much.

    It does make sense that they've got issues with AEG's financial stability, since the company is in the process of being sold, but does the NFL not see how well L.A. Live is doing? They should wait until a sale is done to see how viable a Downtown site would be for the future.. BUT, there was also this from the article:


    "I think there are many major, if not fatal, flaws in the AEG plan and it's surprising the Los Angeles political leadership has not picked up on it from the NFL," said Marc Ganis


    No, that's not surprising at all because the folks who make the city government here are absolute morons, who have helped to bankrupt this city while so many things have gone undone (such fixing so much of the bad infrastructure that L.A. has). Pathetic. Also, there's this:


    Soon-Shiong and Guggenheim have each met with the NFL to discuss the downtown project and possible interest in the NFL. As part of that, the sources have said that Guggenheim has floated the idea of flipping the stadium project by moving the Dodgers to the downtown site and then build a football stadium on the Dodger Stadium site in Chavez Ravine.



    NO, NO, NO! I don't care if the Downtown site doesn't end up working for the NFL, but there are other options (Inglewood, City of Industry) to explore. Moving the Dodgers out of Chavez Ravine would be completely soul crushing, not necessary, and would have the potentially to alienate many fans away from the NFL.

    Just face facts, Tunick, the NFL is never coming back to LA. Come to grips with it and move on.

    considering some of the games he had last year despite no real passing game... he's still a highly capable back. just needs a better situation/offensive line i think.

    Which strikes me as odd given Bayless is (or was before the Heat won their championship last year), the biggest LeBron hater around.

    more like he was trying, per his own words, to push lebron to be better and takes a lot of credit for him finally getting a ring. because, you know, a journalist had jack **** to do with it.
