Just being a fan today...

So I'm trapped at my mother's house today without my usual tools I use to wander around the web for NFL Jabber. Oh I could still do it, I really just don't feel like it. Instead I have decided to just be a sports fan today and browse around some of my favorite sites. Which leads me back here to The Bloghouse because I feel I have to share.

A couple of things I wanted to share are Sports by Brooks new girl, Teressa. Yep, that's both of them...Click on the link to see Teressa and here reasons.

Elsewhere on the net...Kissing Suzy Kolber does a fine literary piece on Sarah Shahi (with hot video) and the new Dolphins cheerleader, Ashley White...yummy.

Sara Shahi

Could you imagine the response from the Browns fans if Derek Anderson started the season as the QB? Michael David Smith discusses that being likely in The Fanhouse. (Straying from today's chick theme now...)

Mixing football and females... I stumbled across an interesting concept this week. A Librarian that loves fantasy football...and takes the time to blog about it. Stop in and check out the Fantasy Football Librarian.

The Turd Watch is celebrating 28 days without an arrest...the record keeps climbing. The Jax Jags are still holding a solid lead with 41 points.

NFL Jabber 6/16/07

The NFLPA is working overtime this week. They feel the Raiders are "too committed." The Raiders will be punished...they must be dealt with.

"I was notified that the (NFL) Players (Association) believes our total commitment to improving our football team has resulted in some violations of rules regarding practice standards," Lane Kiffin said in a statement released by the club. "The union has complained about the high level of intensity, player aggressiveness and fast pace of our practices and as a result, has taken away the final week of our offseason program."

It's all fun and games until someone gets shot in the nuts. Cheesy I know but I couldn't resist. Redskins rookie D-Back, LaRon Landry could not practice on Friday do to a paintball to the groin. His injury occurred while some of the gang went out to play Wednesday after work.

"I didn't know paintball was that dangerous," linebacker Marcus Washington said. "I hope it wasn't friendly fire."

San Antonio officials are looking to cash in on the Hispanic roots of Tony Romo when he and the boys come down for training camp this summer. They are hoping that people from the place that used to be Mexico will flock from miles around to see a successful Hispanic athlete. I don't usually pay attention to ethnicity but this is news...I would have guessed by the name that he was Italian.

"That's the way I would write the story line if I could," said John Solis, the bureau's executive assistant director of sales and marketing.

"Coming down to a city with 60 percent Hispanic population, (Romo) will have a lot of people surrounding him positively," Solis added. "We are looking forward to being tied to a class act."

Jeff Garcia "felt snubbed" by the Eagles. I think it's time you can quit crying and be happy that a team paid for you to be it's starter. When the Eagles do finally get rid of McNabb, he will be replaced by someone young enough to get away with having a MySpace page (I can say that because I'm only 36).

"I think there was a lot of anger within myself," the 37-year-old Garcia said, describing his feeling when the Eagles waived him goodbye after he led them into the playoffs last season as the very capable fill-in for the injured McNabb. "Here was finally a situation where I felt so comfortable and I felt like I had a good home and a good place, and I wanted to be able to experience more of that and, hopefully, not have to relocate all over again. That opportunity wasn't presented to me."

A few minutes later, Garcia gave a more abbreviated version: "I felt personally snubbed."

Johnnie Morton was juicing

Johnnie boy tested positive for elevated levels of epitestosterone before his fight...or his...I don't know what to call it. Before he was knocked the %$#& out on June 2nd.

Tests on a pre-fight urine sample collected June 1 showed Morton's epitestosterone level was "more than 10 times the normal level for an athlete," commission official William Douglas said.

Since stepping into a haymaker that laid his ass out in the first 38 seconds of his MMA debut, Morton has fallen off the face of the earth. He refused to take a post fight drug test...apparently forgetting that he took a test the day before the fight. They frown on this and he is indefinitely suspended and the $100,000 he was to get for his time is being held.

"We've heard no phone call, no letter, no nothing," Douglas said. "I hope he makes the effort to contact us."

Byron Leftwich and David Garrard are saying that they have been warned of Daunte Culpepper being brought in for a visit.

"Anytime you have a quarterback of Daunte's caliber, it's smart to look into it, especially with me having one year left on my contract," Leftwich said.

Bill Walsh made a stop by Raiders practice. How cool would that be?

"It was important for me to get (Walsh) over here to practice," Kiffin said. "It's one thing to ask a question. It's another thing to have him watch practice and get some thoughts from him on what he's seeing out there and to spend more time with him obviously with some other questions. I've spent some time preparing for him."

Tom Coughlin is tired of all the pissing and moaning of his players.

"Let's just play the game -- talk is cheap -- let's play the game," Coughlin said as the Giants opened a mandatory three-day minicamp. "I would like it to stay that way."

NFL Jabber 6/13/07

Laurence Maroney is set to be the star back in New England. I like this kid. Reading this, it doesn't sound like he has a cocky bone in his body.

J.T. O'Sullivan threw for four TD's in NFL Europe this weekend. How long before the Bears fans get wind of this and call for him to get Grossman's spot?

Thomas Jones has been running with a chip on his shoulder since the Bears drafted Cedric Benson. Makes me wonder how that chip is going to make him run in New York since the Bears traded him away.

The Raiders are going to be playing more of a "left safety and right safety" defensive backfield than the traditional "strong safety and free safety" sort.

Kellen Winslow is taking the Shoeless Joe approach to practice.

NFL Jabber 6/12/07

Giving up a day off is not such a bad thing when your Kendrick Clancy. After being cut by the Cards he is straight to work with the Saints.

"I really don't have any time off, so I'm just going straight into the workouts," Clancy said after practice Monday. "Coming in, they give me this playbook and say you need to know this by Monday. It's cool though. I'm playing catch-up. I guess they're not going to just put me in the fire just like that. I'll get it.

"It was no fun when (the Cardinals) came to me and said to either take a pay cut or you're going to get released. I didn't want to take a pay cut to be out there. I kind of figure I could get on a team that was going to make the playoffs."

Tony Romo is ready to get paid...and he would like to see it before the season starts.

Our guest this week on "Cashing in on an NFL Player" is Lions DT, Shaun Rogers. Headlines read... "Stripper: Lions' Rogers touched me." Was it when the $1 was being put in your G-String or when you were straddling his lap with your chest in his face? I have been in....I mean, heard about strip clubs. Many have a "no touching rule" that gets broken when a customer cops a feel. From what I have "heard" you get reminded of the rule or ejected...doesn't usually make national news. Who knows though...he could have been all over her like she was a jelly roll. I'm sure we will hear more soon and the pictures of her can't be far behind.

Jones Soda, a local product that has knocked Coke out of Seahawk games, is getting an all star cast to pimp it.

"What a lineup. We are really excited about this," said Peter van Stolk, founder and chief executive of Jones Soda. "It's our goal to create a new fan experience."

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, tackle Walter Jones, linebacker Lofa Tatupu, wide receiver Deion Branch and kicker Josh Brown will be featured on bottles in the 2007 season.

The NFL is exploring new ways to cash in on Digital Media...including it's own TV Console in the future.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. In non-Culpepper news, the Dolphins are impressed with their new return man, Ted Ginn Jr.

This could be the break out year for Vernon Davis if he can stay out of the healing room.

Rumor has it that Michael Vick's name first came up after a Texas murder.

After a "disappointing" season, Jake Delhomme has the pressure of the team performing and David Carr lurking with the clipboard.

Yes folks...there are expectations in Houston. Coach has made alot of moves and they can't blame it on getting Capers leftover crap this year.

NFL Jabber 6/10/07

So Chad Johnson ran a race with a horse...and won. A feat that Cris Collensworth could not pull off in 1993.

"Floyd Mayweather, you're next," Johnson said. "I want to fight you. I'd like to take Kobe and LeBron one-on-one. Jeff Gordon, we can take a couple laps. ... Now it's my time to take over the race world."

The Jon Kitna is sweet on the new kid in school.

"No question," quarterback Jon Kitna said after Friday's practice at DetroitRenaissanceHigh School. "The kid is as good as everybody said he was, or better. Every play was designed for Calvin," Kitna said. "He handled it great. He seems to be fine. He's the first one on the field. He takes care of his body."

Drew Brees is Batman. He will be doing a good deed in your town soon.

With the additions of Randy McMichael and Drew Bennett, the St. Louis media is starting to hype the O, comparing to the "Greatest Show on Turf." Could have been fueled by Steven Jackson saying he wants to get 2500 total yards this season.

The players in San Diego are getting giddy with Norv Turner's Offense.

Culpepper joins "As the QB World Turns"

It was just a couple weeks ago when Daunte Culpepper talked about how he didn't worry about things like new QB's coming in. That was shortly after the Fins used a 2nd round pick on a QB.

So let's recap the last week for C-Pep. He was given the green light to take his knee on the practice field on Monday. Tuesday those trade talks for Trent Green finally came to a head. As no surprise Daunte was told on Wednesday he was going to be traded. Culpepper, who doesn't worry about things like that, told the team on Thursday he would like to be released.

He isn't going to go easy. Although understanding about the business side of the situation, Culpepper feels slighted by the Dolphins here. He makes a very good point in our opinion addressing it on Thursday.

"I must say the impatience the organization displayed in both encouraging me to rush back on the field last year and then rushing me out the door this year is disappointing," Culpepper said. "However, I understand that they have the right to make that business decision. It is now my turn to make some decisions."

So with that we come to Friday. As practice started Culpepper was right there along with the other QB's tossing balls around. He was told prior to practice that he would not be getting any reps beyond one-on-one drills. The Dolphins do have to protect their investment...for now...right? They can't have him getting hurt when they are already trying to trade away his knee and salary.

"I understand totally what's going on," said Culpepper, who is adamant that he wants to be released, not traded. "Instead of wasting time out there watching practice, I went into the weight room and got a little bit stronger.

"They are going to do what's best for them," Culpepper said before correcting himself by adding, "what they think is best for them."

Headlines were a bit misleading. Saying he was "escorted" off the field (by the guy who had the keys to the weight room)paints a picture of a disgruntled postal employee. I don't think he is going to come back with a gun dressed in camo. He is going to hit them where it hurts in the pocket book.

"Any team that's interested in my services, just sit tight," Culpepper said. "I'm not going to agree to a trade."

Culpepper, who acts as his own agent, knows that his contract would have to be restructured for a trade to happen...and he just plain isn't going to do it. I don't blame him.

So what is in store for Culpepper now? Many think he should sit out 2007 and heal. Daunte could be thinking this too, giving him time to have a stare down with the Dolphins.

NFL Jabber 6/8/07

I suggested a week or so ago that if they wanted to be taken seriously prosecuting Mike Vick they needed someone not named Poindexter. The Feds have moved in and stole Poindexter's thunder. How is he supposed to make his "bones" if someone else is digging them up?

"This comes as a shocker to me," Poindexter said. "That's the thing that's so strange, that they've taken such an interest in this. Michael Vick is so big, I guess they want in, too. They want some of this limelight. It's like someone wants to make their bones (reputation) on this case."

Tom Brady is knocking his new WR's down a little bit. It sounds as if he doesn't want people to think these guys are going to "save" the Pats. If I was Tom and didn't like the spotlight on my personal life I would let them have it.

"You hear so much about the new guys, and I kind of take offense a little bit to the guys we had last year and how hard they worked," Brady said. "We were in the AFC Championship game. I think over the last half of the season we threw the ball pretty effectively, and Reche had the best year of his career, Jabar had one of the best years of his career, Troy [Brown] had a great year, Ben [Watson] had the best year of his career. So a lot of guys put in a lot of work last year.

"I think everyone thinks that we get all these new players and all of a sudden we're destined for these huge expectations, but that's not the way it works in football. You've got to go out and everybody's got to find a role and you've got to do the little things that you don't really recognize on TV."

Daunte Culpepper does not want to sit around and wait like his new (for now) teammate, Trent Green. He is asking to be released.

"I must say the impatience the organization displayed in both encouraging me to rush back on the field last year and then rushing me out the door this year is disappointing," Culpepper said. "However, I understand that they have the right to make that business decision. It is now my turn to make some decisions."

Things have been quiet on the Jets front this offseason. They did pick up a stud RB and the offense is excited about their passing game.

Jerry Jones likes having a National Enquirer rep leading his team.

"We all want Tony to be everything he can be on the field," Jones said. "From my perspective, I like his colorfulness off the field. That is good for the Cowboys and good for football. There is an element here that is entertainment and you have to back it up with action. But if you are in my shoes, you are looking at the Cowboys franchise ... our role and where we are from an entertainment standpoint."

It's good to have goals SJax!

"My goal is 2,500 total yards from scrimmage," Jackson saidThursday. "And how I get it doesn't matter. But I want to get to that number."

NFL Jabber 6/7/07

Robert Meachem is not off to a great start as the Saints first round pick. He showed up overweight, sprained his ankle, and now has had knee surgery...all within a little over a month of being drafted. He is expected to be back by training camp.

"I kind of feel discouraged a little bit because I want to show the coaches what I can do and you can't show them what you can do when you're hurt," Meachem said Wednesday. "For me, it's going to be a time I've got to keep praying and just stay focused -- don't let the knee injury get to me."

The Culpepper to Raiders talk is starting. Cam Inman of Is getting the debate fired up.

"What do the Raiders have to lose? It's not as if they're married to McCown, whom they took from Detroit in the offseason for a fourth-round draft pick. As for Walter, we learned Wednesday he recently underwent knee surgery, further lowering his stock."

Former Steeler, Jerome Bettis, has opened "Grill 36" a few hundred yards from Heinz Field. That isn't the story here, it's a lead up to me letting you know Kordell Stewert is still alive as he was one of the guests on Tuesday.

Chad Greenway is pumped about getting on the field for real.

"It's just about learning your position and learning the ins-and-outs and when you can maybe jump a route," Greenway said Wednesday after the Vikings had wrapped up another practice during a week of organized team activities. "Just kind of learn that process. ... Those first couple games I'm going to be out there flying around trying to make plays. As the season goes on, I'll be able to become a smarter player by listening to what E.J. says, what the coaches say. Just kind of learn from my own experiences."

New Johnnie Morton KO video

For some reason the video we had posted before has been removed per request from You tube. Either K1 thinks they have enough exposure or Johnnie Morton doesn't want you to see him get his ass kicked.

We have replaced the old video with one that works...HERE

New Bronco, Sam Adams, is five pounds lighter than his listed weight of 350...which basically means they weighed him before lunch.

Now with Trent Green is gone the Chiefs can concentrate on keeping Larry Johnson unhappy.

So on the same day that the Fins get Green...Culpepper is shooting off the email letting everyone know he has medical clearance...

'Andrews did a thorough exam with X-rays and gave me a very positive report and clearance for this week's mini-camp,'' Culpepper wrote Tuesday. ``Today, the Dolphins also cleared me so I am preparing to practice tomorrow [Wednesday]."

Mike Martz is playing Pop-Warner coach with Drew Stanton.

"He broke the way I hold the ball, putting my fingers up and more toward the point of the ball so it can really roll off my index finger," Stanton said. "He rotated my wrist, too, so that the ball turns out with my grip so that I can snap it more. I hold the ball tight to my chest now, instead of holding it back a bit, which led to things like my front shoulder going down and the weight not being on my back knee like he wanted it to be."

Vernand Morency wants to be the next surprise RB to come off the bench in the NFL.

"I really don't pay a lot of attention to what people are saying or what's in the newspapers," Morency said. "People questioning me is something that has been with me my whole life. In high school (in Miami), I had to follow my brother as the running back. Then in college at Oklahoma State, it was Tatum Bell. There's always been uncertainty about me replacing somebody. That doesn't affect me. I just go out and work harder."

It's getting Green in Miami...

FINALLY! It's over. Trent Green is now a Dolphin. The Chiefs get a 5th rounder in the 2008 draft that can become a 4th rounder depending on playing time. So we know they have the bigger balls in KC. These two teams have been waiting for the other to crack for months.

It's a good thing Cullpepper doesn't think about these kinds of things...
