Broncos to trade Cutler

Well boys and girls, it's official. The soap opera known as the McDaniels/Cutler saga will be coming to an end. The Broncos have announced that they will be trying to trade Cutler. Now let's see how quickly the rumours start about who is interested. From a logical standpoint, I'd guess the Lions or the Jets. Both need a QB. We'll see how it plays out.

NFL Commissioner wants longer season

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is planning to propose to extend the regular season from 16 games to 17 or 18 games. This would mean less preseason games, which is fine by me! This will be proposed to team owners in May.

Free-for-all in Cleveland

Cleveland Browns new coach Eric Magnini has announced that he hasn't decided who will be the starting QB in Cleveland this year. He's going to have an open competition for the role of starter between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. My hope is that Quinn gets to be the starter. I think if he can stay healthy, he'll put the Browns in a better position than Anderson can. And plus, I'd rather look at him throwing the ball than Anderson...but that's my little Barbie heart speaking.

Stallworth drove under the influence

Last week, Cleveland Browns WR Donte Stallworth hit a pedestrian while driving and 59 year old Mario Reyes died as a result.

Today, it has been reported that Stallworth's blood alcohol level was above the legal limit at the time of the accident. No charges have been laid yet but Stallworth could be charged with DUI manslaughter and could spend a maximum of 15 years in prison.

I act like I'm 8; But I wear 81

Because T.O. loves being the new biggest topic of my blog, he's acting like a spoiled little brat and WR James Hardy has switched his number from 81 to 84 so Owens can have his number 81. I know veteran players often get their number when they switch teams, but when you're a drama queen and this is basically your last shot at redemption, just suck it up and take whatever they give you.

L.T. stays classy in San Diego

RB Ladainian Tomlinson will return to the Chargers after his future in San Diego was uncertain. His renegotiated contract keeps him with the Chargers until 2011, which gives the Chargers some breathing room in their salary cap.

And the Bills continue to annoy me...

You've got to be kidding me! The Buffalo Bills signed WR Terrell Owens to a 1 year $6.5 million contract today. I feel the urge to buy season tickets to the Bills this year now so I can constantly chirp him. Also, this means that T.O. will be playing in T.O. since the Bills will play another home game in Toronto, like they did last season. The Bills seem excited but I have this feeling QB Trent Edwards is sitting somewhere saying "Oh f*** my life."

Bye bye T.O.

The Cowboys cut WR Terrell Owens yesterday after being the resident drama queen in Dallas for the past few seasons. Now there's rumours that the Patriots might sign Owens. All I can say is oh dear God, why?! Yes, Owens is a talented receiver. But his talent is shadowed by his oversized ego and princess-like personality. He can't get along with teammates, especially quarterbacks. Look at his past: Jeff Garcia's gay, Donovan's a pain, Romo won't throw to me. Oh Terrell, you are so whiney. Go back to the good old days when you ran around with a Sharpie signing EVERYTHING. That was loveable ego. This is just annoying.
