Heh. Well, since Tony Gonzales [link=(http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/falcons-release-tony-gonzalez-after-he-does-not-file-retirement-papers-124421143.html)]refused to submit his retirement papers[/link], Atlanta was forced to cut him.

Love Lance Romance, one of my all-time favorites. He'll find work soon enough, no question.
Thanks for everything, especially what's got to be one of the most exciting and pivotal two-point conversions in SB history.

Nothing shocking, really. Remember that Jeff Fisher had planned on hiring him but backed off when the ban was passed down.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Program Alert: Leonard Marshall Interview (at approx. 2:25 CST)-Fox Sports 1 - ffhouston on 1/28/14 at 2:30 pm|
Interview with Chris and Matt Hasslebeck.
Intro was of Scott Norwood's missed FG in SB XXV, followed by a vid of his sack on Joe Montana in the NFCCG. LM said that effort was "indicative" of what's expected out of a Bill Parcells team.
Along with Parcells, Belicheck, Romeo Crennell, and Al G...

I just switched over and Chris Myers is going to interview LM after the break. I'll post a recap once it's done.
It's channel 219 on DTV.

Should be a fun few years here, after having to rebuild from ground up the last few.
Also excited about the likely AAA team's move to the Conroe-The Woodlands area. Really think having the AAA team in the same metro area will gin up interest given the "get to see the stars of tomorrow today"-kind...

I like this idea. There are going to be many really interesting interviews conducted on radio row this week and I, for one, would like to have a single thread to check out all week that has links to interesting podcasts, etc.

| More Sports Board|| re: Andre Johnson for Ryan Mallet? - ffhouston on 1/21/14 at 11:48 am|
I'm a fan of sending the 33rd pick overall to NE for Mallet and picking Clowney with the 1st pick.
Certainly more realistic than trading your best offensive player, even if he is 33 on opening day, for a QB with zero NFL starts....

Naw, a single draft pick isn't enough for that a-hole.
Since Sharper was in the team in 2009, looks like Goodell just found an excuse to vacate the Super Bowl title that year, like the NCAA did with USC and Reg...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Graham's contract situation could get ugly - ffhouston on 1/14/14 at 12:42 pm|
No way this includes playoffs. A rule like this has to apply equally, one would think.
Makes zero sense to use a ratio over a 16 week period for 20 teams and different ratios for the other 12....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Early departures next year? - ffhouston on 1/14/14 at 12:39 pm|
The way things have gone the past two off-seasons with early entrants, I half expect this to happen. Dude tears it up, then legally challenges the NFL for inclusion in the 2015 Draft.

Great article. Think it's important to move the pocket by rolling Drew out, maybe going no huddle at times, rather than have him be a sitting duck in the pocket all game.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Saints recievers getting bullied at line - ffhouston on 1/10/14 at 12:14 pm|
Agree on the stack formation, great way to mitigate press coverage and try to free up Graham.
I feel confident that there were things in the Saints gameplan that Payton didn't get to against Seattle due to how quickly the game got out of hand.
I think he knew we'd see them again and didn't wan...

Seriously doubt he plays, more likely they have him on track for return next week or (at worst) for the Super Bowl...else they'd put him on IR.
GTD is to give the Hawks something to think about until right before game time....
