Craziness: Day 2

The Patriots traded QB Matt Cassel and LB Mike Vrabel to the Chiefs. I haven't officially found out the details but so far the rumour is a 2nd round pick for Cassel, which seems like a bad deal for the Pats.

The Bills signed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The 49ers re-signed LB Takeo Spikes to a 2 year contract.

The Titans re-signed QB Kerry Collins to a 2 year $15 million deal.

The Redskins and their bottomless pockets picked up G Derrick Dockery for 5 years $26 million.
The Eagles traded CB Lito Sheppard to the Jets for a 5th round draft pick and a conditional 2010 pick.

The Broncos signed RBs Cornell Buckhalter and J.J. Arrington.

The Broncos also signed S Brian Dawkins to a 5 year $17 million deal.

The Eagles signed RT Stacy Andrews.

The Giants signed LB Michael Boley to 5 years $25 million.

Apparently the Lions signed WR Bryant Johnson and traded QB Jon Kitna to the Cowboys. No details on either yet though.

Check back later tonight for more updates.

Free Agency

Day 1 of free agency, here's what has happened so far:

DT Albert Haynesworth shouted, "Give me the money!" and boy did the Redskins comply. He got a 7 year $100 million deal.

The Browns traded TE Kellen Winslow to the Bucs for undisclosed draft picks.

The Texans traded QB Sage Rosenfels to the Vikings for a 4th round draft pick. The Vikings signed Rosenfels to a 2 year $9 million deal. He'll compete with Jackson for the starting job.

The Jets signed LB Bart Scott.

The Pats picked up RB Fred Taylor and TE Chris Baker.

The Colts re-signed C Jeff Saturday .

CB DeAngelo Hall signed with the Redskins for 6 years $54 million.

That's all I've got for now. But I'll keep updating.

Marvin's in or out?

So now that the Colts have signed Hayden there's been lots of speculation that Harrison won't be returning. Why is this speculation just starting now? I thought this was pretty obvious as Harrison didn't have the greatest season. Reggie Wayne has stepped up to the number 1 receiver and Anthony Gonzalez got more receptions this season. Harrison's getting up there in the "Brett Favre needs to pack it in" category. As well, the drama with the shooting case isn't something the Colts need. They're not the Cowboys; they don't thrive on it. So Marvin, it's been nice but I think it's time to say goodbye.

Save the Buffalo Bill!

I have this assignment due tomorrow to create an ad for the WWF about saving the polar bears. While I was working on it, my friend suggested the polar bears don't need saving when compared to the Bills. Well here's my revamped ad (click it for a better view). P.S. the WWF really has nothing to do with this.

"OK guys this time I mean it..."

And so today marks the day that Brett Favre retires...again. Look Brett, I know you love football and what not but really if you try to come back again, I will scream. I will scream louder than I scream when I hear Joe Buck's voice. I know you love the game and honestly, I respect that. But there comes a time when that love cannot carry your body anymore (go ask Kevin Costner, he made the movie...or just go to your local video store and rent it). So enjoy your retirement just as much as NFL fans enjoyed your first 17 seasons. The 18th just gave me stuff to write about so I appreciate that but I don't think many others did.

Broken ribs & (a lack of) sympathy

Aw Ben, you want us to feel sorry for you; playing with broken ribs and all. Well newsflash Benny boy, I played volleyball with broken ribs while also suffering from pneumonia and that wasn't for money. So suck it up, princess! No one cares!

Pro Bowl Day

This is probably my saddest day of the year. It signifies the end of the season and now I have to pretend to like hockey for a few weeks until baseball starts. The even sadder thing though is I don't even like the Pro Bowl. It's probably the most pointless game in all of sports. Since it's a week after the Super Bowl, it's so anti-climactic. I know they're attempting to combat this issue by playing the game the week before the Super Bowl next season, but that's going to be even worse. Any of the players playing in the Super Bowl won't be playing. My buddy, Alex, and I were talking about this the other day. We decided it would be more fun if it was a game of touch or flag football played with no equipment and just 100% for fun. But that's just us...what do you think?

Congrats to the Steelers

The Steelers are now the most winningest team when it comes to the Super Bowl . Santanio Holmes was named MVP; although I think it could have gone to James Harrison. But anyway congrats to the Steelers. Hopefully, they can enjoy it while everyone goes on about how the Cards got shafted.

Super Bowl Sunday!!

It's every football fan's favourite day of the year!!! I mean, sure, I'm disappointed the Colts aren't in it but we'll get 'em next year.

So I was trying to decide who to cheer for. I ripped apart both teams pretty bad all season long. But when looking back on my posts this season, I absolutely cannot morally cheer for the Cards. I have such a hate on for the two west divisions that I can't do it. So go Steelers! Plus my Uncle Doug will be disappointed in me if I cheer against the Steelers haha. So here's my letter to Big Ben:

Dear Mr. Roethlisberger,

Please don't get sacked 7 times and blow the game.

Love, Barbie.
