Why Do People Think Tebow is Forcing His Religion on Them?

I truly do not understand why Tebow haters feel that he is forcing his religion on them. All he does is thank God for his success, and act like a professional should. Even when commentators, other NFL players, and fans mock him he never lashes out, he always responds with class.

Which makes me ask the question, why do T-haters hate? I can only think of one answer...because he doesn't acknowledge them.

Ill say what I wish Tebow would. "You don't want to see me pray anymore? Then keep me out of the endzone."

How Will Kitna Do?

For the last 3 seasons I have bitched about Romo. His turnovers, lack of leadership, terrible decision making have been in my eyes why the Cowboys can't get over the hump.

People point to his stats as the proof in the pudding, saying he is always at the top of the league in passing yards and TD's. My argument to that is that he has the most talented team around him in the NFL, and what would be a 5 yd out on another team, turns into a 75 yd TD pass to Miles Austin/Witten/Jones/Williams/Bryant. I have said for years that if they had a mediocre QB that would properly manage the game (not turn the ball over)they would be better off than Romo closing his eyes and throwing to Witten.

Well, I finally get what I have wished for....Jon Kitna. I am saying now that Kitna will get them to at least .500 and with how bad the conference is, they could still make the playoffs.

Now time to just sit back and see what happens.

How Will McNabb Do With the Redskins?

If you ask me Donovan McNabbs carreer is officially over, but some seem to think that the trade is going to work out for both McNabb and the Redskins.

Here is an article from ESPN talking a bout the transition.

ASHBURN, Va. -- As Chris Cooley talked Thursday about how easily Donovan McNabb was fitting in during his first week with the Washington Redskins, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback was proving his tight end's point.

Redskins QB Donovan McNabb dishes on being dealt to Washington, his initial thoughts after finding out about the trade, his conversation with Andy Reid and what he expects upon his return to Philadelphia.

McNabb looked in command as he threw to his new targets on an adjacent field.

"Donovan's outstanding, it feels like he's been here for a couple years," Cooley said of McNabb, acquired from the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles for two draft picks on April 4. "Instantly, he's a leader. He knows what it takes to have a team together. He's talking to all the guys, fits in extremely well. I don't think anyone was worried about his ability to come be the quarterback of this team."

Receiver Malcolm Kelly agreed that McNabb, who started five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl during his 11 years with the Eagles, is already having an effect on the Redskins, who were 4-12 in 2009.

"He's a lot more laid back than I expected," Kelly said. "He's a cool dude. It brings the pressure of practice down. He's got a real strong arm and he's accurate. This guy has won a lot of games, a lot of big games. You have confidence in a guy like that. Even just being out here, being around the offense just for a few days, the things he already knows ... [I have] more than enough confidence in him."

Both Cooley and Kelly are enthused about the offense being installed by new coordinator Kyle Shanahan, whose passing attack with the Houston Texans led the NFL in 2009.

"A lot of guys are excited," said two-time Pro Bowl participant Cooley, who pronounced himself fully recovered from the broken ankle that ended his 2009 season in Week 7 -- against McNabb and the Eagles. "It seems like a very good offense for us ... moves guys around quite a bit. I have a ton of opportunity to move around a lot. I would compare it to what [former coach Joe Gibbs] did with the tight end and H-back. The quarterbacks all talk about really liking it. It makes sense as a scheme. You can kind of learn it as an entire scheme. They've been successful with it. Hopefully, we can continue the success."

Kelly said defenses will have a hard time figuring out how to cover the Redskins' receivers.

"Nobody knows which [of the receiver position] we're going to play. [Receivers coach Keenan McCardell] has us learning all the positions so he can just throw you there at anything and you know what to do," Kelly said. "It really makes you more of a complete player. It causes matchup problems. You can get lined up against linebackers. The way we line up, it really makes it hard for defenses to cover the wide receivers."

Will Tim Tebow Make it in the NFL?

I heard he had a pretty nice throw around yesterday but didn't get to see it. Personally I think he could have done just fine with his throw the way it was. Athletics and throwing form are not all it takes to be in the NFL. Hard work and Heart is harder to come by then God given talent.

I think he will be successfull no matter what he does or where he goes, what do yall think.

LaDainian Tomlinson Agrees to Deal With Jets

Heres the story from FoxSports:

LaDainian Tomlinson has found a new home.

Tomlinson has agreed to terms with the Jets on a multi-year deal.

Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed the two-year deal Sunday night. was the first to report the agreement.

Tomlinson visited the Vikings first, then the Jets, who sent him out to dinner with quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer earlier this week.

The running back spent much of his career with Schottenheimer's father Marty in San Diego and the two maintain a close relationship.

"He wanted to go a team that he thought had a chance to compete for the championship," Condon told the AP. "He wanted to go somewhere where he had a chance to have a significant role, and so with the Jets he also was going to be very familiar with the offensive system."

Tomlinson ran for 730 yards last season and scored 12 touchdowns.

The Worst Super Bowl Ever

Well, at least to me it was...a colts fan.

It seemed like the perfect storm of crap that happened for the Saints to win. But that's nothing new, they did it all season. If only Brett hadn't thrown that interception I would be loving life right now.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Bears sign QB Jay Cutler

Call it Da Deal.

Not since the beer-and-brats days of Jim McMahon, Saturday Night Live spoofs and the Super Bowl Shuffle in the mid-1980s have the Chicago Bears fielded a bona fide star quarterback. They will now.

It took a king's ransom — including two first-round draft picks and incumbent starter Kyle Orton — but the Bears outmaneuvered a slew of suitors Thursday to land Denver's Jay Cutler.

Suffice to say, all the criticism being heaped upon Chicago general manager Jerry Angelo for his team's free-agent inactivity this offseason has ended. Angelo knew he had to offer a better package than quarterback-starved teams like Tampa Bay, Washington and the New York Jets. He did exactly that.

After wasting years trying to develop youngsters like Orton and Rex Grossman with only a modicum of success, Chicago finally has the real deal under center. Say what you will about how Cutler handled the rift with new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels that led to his departure, but there's no denying Cutler is magic on the field and has the arm strength to thrive at windy Soldier Field.

In 2008, Cutler reached the Pro Bowl in just his third NFL season. He almost single-handedly carried a team with a porous defense and decimated running back corps into the playoffs.

Cutler now faces a similar challenge in Chicago. This deal betters the Bears, no question. But improvement from last year's 9-7 record isn't a given.

While he will be working with an outstanding young running back (Matt Forte) and a decent enough offensive line after Thursday's free-agent signing of tackle Orlando Pace, Chicago still fields one of the NFL's worst wide receiver corps. Devin Hester has blazing speed but isn't nearly as complete a wideout as Brandon Marshall, Cutler's favorite target in Denver. Rashied Davis and Brandon Lloyd were mediocre at best in 2008. Earl Bennett — a 2008 third-round pick who didn't have a catch last season — was working with the starters during a recent Bears minicamp.

The defense isn't what it once was either. The Monsters of the Midway were more Mothra than Godzilla in 2008. The Bears ranked 21st and 16th respectively in yards and points allowed. Chicago was especially poor against the pass, which explains why opponents attempted more throws against Chicago (622) than any other NFL team.

The Bears struggled to pressure quarterbacks, exposing an injury-riddled secondary that wasn't all that great even when healthy. Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher — the face of the franchise before Cutler's arrival — looked old. Oft-injured safety Mike Brown broke down again and was released in February. And defensive tackle Tommie Harris has yet to prove worth the four-year, $40 million contract extension he signed last offseason

The fact Chicago almost reached the playoffs last year was largely a testament to the NFL's best special teams units, Forte's production and Orton's efficient quarterbacking until a midseason ankle injury.

The drop-off from the Super Bowl defense Chicago fielded two seasons earlier was so great that some Bears fans can still be justifiably upset at Angelo for not acquiring a quality quarterback when the unit was in its prime.

Angelo still has plenty of time for more personnel upgrades before the regular season begins. Maybe the Bears will continue dipping into free agency — cornerback Ken Lucas took a visit Monday — or can strike gold in the draft like in 2004 when Harris, defensive tackle Tank Johnson, wide receiver Bernard Berrian and cornerback Nathan Vasher were the team's first four picks. Maybe the defense will rebound with head coach Lovie Smith now calling the plays. Maybe an aged starting roster has enough left in the tank for a championship run in what is considered a wide-open division.

I just wouldn't be expecting a Ferris Bueller-like parade down the streets of Chicago in February quite yet, even though the Cutler acquisition itself is reason to celebrate.

What to do with Terrell Owens?

Bottom line: the Cowboys were a joke this season. They have many things they need to change before they can even think about making the playoffs.

One of the biggest looming decisions is whether or not the Cowboys should keep TO. I personal think he is a waist of money and plays like he has no heart, and would rather see the Cowboys go down a little in talent, to improve on chemistry and work ethic.

TO is not all of the problem, but attitudes and play like his are. I think its time the Cowboys show that it doesn't matter how big of a contract you have, there will be consiquences to stupid actions, play, and statements.

What do you think?

Should Peyton Get the MVP

Here is a great article I read on Fox Sports by Ian O'Connor talking about why Peyton should get win the MVP vote. I thought it was a great article and I agree he should win it.

Peyton Manning is the NFL's most widely marketed player, and yet he was destined to spend this season, as they say, under the radar. Even an alarming injury could not elevate his personal drama to a level of pressing coast-to-coast interest.

As it turned out, his knee surgeries were greatly overshadowed by Tom Brady's.

Manning didn't have to be Manning this year; for all practical purposes, he could've taken the season off. He had his built-in excuses.

He was hurt, he had missed the entire preseason and he'd already taken the Indianapolis Colts to six consecutive playoff appearances and the one Super Bowl title he desperately needed to remove that ugly A-Rodian stain from his otherwise epic career.

Peyton had carried the Colts and the Manning name long enough. With his team at 3-4 and booked for games with the Patriots and Steelers, he could've temporarily surrendered the league to little brother Eli in New York, to the Titans of Tennessee, before picking up next year where he and Brady had left off.

That Manning chose to win seven consecutive games instead came as little surprise to those around him in the immediate wake of his liberating Super Bowl triumph over the Bears.

"Some quarterbacks kind of get what I call 'the pass' after they win the Super Bowl," Manning said that dark and rainy night in Miami. "I don't want the pass."

Manning delivers passes but never accepts them. For building what could be a 12-4 season out of what had 7-9 written all over it, he deserves to win his third Most Valuable Player award.

Peyton's would be an ironic MVP victory, as this year marked the first time anyone dared ask a question that once would've inspired the same news conference reaction caused by the guy who threw his shoes at President Bush.

Is Eli the better player?

They're both going to the Pro Bowl, of course, becoming the first quarterbacking brothers selected for the same game. Eli was named for the first time, Peyton for the ninth. The last two Super Bowl MVPs are once again joined at history's hip.

But there was a time this season when Eli was playing a better brand of football and leading a Giants team that appeared on the verge of a dynastic run. Peyton, meanwhile, had nine interceptions to go with his 10 touchdowns across his first seven games.

The family dynamic was first flipped on its ear the previous January, when Billy Volek's Chargers, of all people, eliminated the Colts from the playoffs on the same day Eli knocked out the top-seeded Cowboys in Texas.

"I have a heavy heart for Peyton," the boys' mother, Olivia, said outside the winning Giants locker room, "but I'm proud of Eli."

The kid brother got his ring a lot faster than Peyton did, kept playing at a high level in 2008 and suddenly people were thinking the unthinkable: Was this Serena blowing by Venus all over again?

No, it wasn't.

With two games to play, including Thursday night's date in Jacksonville, Manning has a chance to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season for the ninth time. He's on track to finish with a completion rate of at least 65 percent for the seventh consecutive year. That 10-to-9 touchdown-to-interception ratio from October? It now stands at 23-to-12.

Manning's passer rating (90.3) might be the lowest he's posted since 2002, but that vague statistic — however it's calculated — has never been an honest measure of a quarterback's worth. The Colts' running game ranks 30th in the league. Without Manning, this team could've never achieved the way the Patriots have without Brady.

Without Manning, the Colts would be 4-10.

"Peyton really went through a lot with his initial knee surgery, and then when they all of a sudden quietly opened it up again," his father, Archie, said Wednesday morning by phone. "He was rusty when he got back, they were missing some linemen, they couldn't run the ball or stop the run.

"But they kept fighting and scratching. To get to this point, it has to be one of Tony Dungy's best jobs. You look at 10 wins and you say, 'My gosh, how in the world did that happen?' "

It happened because of Peyton Manning.

Funny how these things work out. Dating back to his days at Tennessee, Manning wasn't known as much for his victories as he was for his defeats. When he approached the AFC title game against the Patriots two years back, Boomer Esiason said if Peyton "doesn't get to the Super Bowl, he might as well buy a house next to A-Rod, because they're going to be living in the same neighborhood."

Manning beat New England and Chicago and left A-Rod to his own title-free devices. When Super Bowl XLI was complete, Adam Vinatieri, a three-time champ in New England, approached Peyton and said, "Welcome to the club."

Now Manning is defined by the games he wins, not the ones he loses. This year's Colts have won seven times by six points or less, if only because of their quarterback's fourth-quarter poise.

Indy was staring at an 0-2 record before Manning drove them back from a 15-0 third-quarter deficit against the Vikings. Indy was staring at a 1-3 record and a loss to the Texans before Manning became the first NFL quarterback to lead his team to victory in regulation after trailing by 17 points in the final five minutes.

Peyton set up Vinatieri's field goal to beat the Patriots and get Indy back to .500, then threw three touchdown passes against the Steelers' top-ranked defense to complete a late comeback and give the Colts their first victory in Pittsburgh in 40 years.

Manning set up Vinatieri's field goal to beat the Chargers by completing a 14-yard pass to Marvin Harrison on fourth-and-one at the San Diego 49 in the final seconds.

"I've always been proud of Peyton in the fourth quarter," Archie Manning said. "One time while he was at Tennessee, playing at Kentucky, it was cold and ugly and nasty. Kentucky wasn't a very good team, but they came out and played great and the crowd really got into it.

"Peyton put together a couple of fourth-quarter drives to win it, and I was waiting on him outside the locker room when one of his offensive linemen came up to me and said, 'Mr. Manning, he just wouldn't let us lose.' I've never forgotten that. I still get emotional thinking about it."

Now, Tony Dungy's Colts are on the verge of securing their seventh straight playoff bid, and their 32-year-old quarterback is the reason nobody — not the Titans or the Steelers — wants to see them in the playoffs.

Peyton has outlasted and outperformed Eli as an MVP candidate. He deserves the honor more than an 8-6 Kurt Warner and a 7-7 Drew Brees. Adrian Peterson and Michael Turner have earned their places in the discussion, but the job of quarterback, as Peyton once said, "is the hardest job in sports."

Manning makes it look too easy. It isn't just the genes. After his Friday night games at Isidore Newman High in New Orleans, Peyton used to be there on Saturdays waiting for his coaches when they arrived at 7 a.m.

"I hadn't even washed the uniforms yet," the head coach, Tony Reginelli, would say, "and he'd already figured out the next opponent's cover-one or cover-two defense."

So no audible comes as a surprise, not when pride still matters.

In the wake of his knee surgeries, Peyton refused to play this season as Eli's brother, or as Archie's other son. He refused to concede the season to the Giants or the Titans or anyone else.

More than anything, the record will show that Peyton Manning refused to let his team take a pass.
