Niners Sign RB: The 49ers have signed RB Brian Westbrook who will replace the retired Glen Coffee. - 8/16

Can’t Catch a Break: Titans RB Stafon Johnson will likely miss his rookie season with a dislocated ankle that he suffered in Saturday’s preseason game vs. Seattle. Johnson is the former USC RB that had his larynx crushed in a weight lifting accident last year. - 8/15

2010/2011 NFC Championship Predictions - We give our picks to win including a short favorite, middle of the road and longshot. - 8/9

Elvis Dumervil Injury - The 2009 sack leader has suffered an unfortunate pectoral injury that will likely sideline him for the whole season. - 8/6

Favre Watch: Instead of reporting whether Favre WILL or WON’T play this season, we’re going to side-step the drama as nobody really knows until the regular season stars. Our guess is yes, he will be back for the 2010/2011 season.

Injuried Bronco: Denver RB Knowshon Moreno will miss the next 3 weeks with a “partially frayed hamstring”. For those of us who hae experienced the all-mighty crippling hammy injury, it’s tough to believe that he won’t be down for longer but the team says he’ll be ready for week 1. - 8/1

Wednesday Notes: The SD Chargers have extended the contract of TE Antonio Gates. The Oakland Raiders have named QB Jason Campbell as their starter. - 7/28

Rest in Peace: Jack “The Assassin” Tatum has died of a heart attack at age 61. Tatum was a hard nosed free safety who administered bone crushing shots to opposing offenses. His greatest, being an absolute blasting of Vikings WR Sammy White in Super Bowl 11. R.I.P. Jack, you will not be forgotten. - 7/28

It’s Official: WR Terrell Owens has joined forces with Chad Ochocinco in Cincinnati. - 7/27

LOL: Brett Favre was recently quoted as saying that he “may be doing this when he’s 50”. We believe that pretty much ends all speculation about whether he’ll be back for the 2010/2011 season. - 7/27

Where Will T.O. Go? The St. Louis Rams are expected to offer WR Terrell Owens a contract as early as Monday. Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer is also pushing team management to sign Owens as well. - 7/26

2010 Miami Dolphins Season Preview - Many believe that the Dolphins will be much improved this season.

Dolphins D Taking a Beating: Starting DE Phillip Merling will miss the 2010 season after tearing his Achilles” tendon (ouch!). This is the 2nd blow to the Phins defense after NT Jason Ferguson went down last week. Rookie Jared Odrick will now be called upon to likely become a first teamer. - 7/23

Seahawks say NO to T.O.: Pete Carroll has stated that the team will not be signing free agent WR Terrell Owens. This makes sense as the team already has 2 formidable starting wideouts and a solid rookie in Golden Tate. - 7/20

Sorry Browns Fans: If losing LeBron wasn’t enough, the Browns are saying that Jake Delhomme is their starting QB. Xanax anyone? - 7/18

All Talk: Rumors out of NY are that Darrelle Revis is not going to hold out despite prior comments that he made. - 7/11

Doing The Right Thing: Giants WR Steve Smith who had 107 receptions last year would like a new deal but is doing the smart thing by not holding out. It’s refreshing to see a player ask for a raise without acting like a cry-baby. - 7/9

Rest in Peace: Don “Air” Coryell has passed away. He was 85. - 7/1
