It's not quite the the anniversary date, but screw it. Free agency has been interesting so far. Champ Bailey is no longer a Bronco. Devon Hester has been let go by the Bears. And Adrian Petersen wants the Vikings to sign Mike Vick. Plus, the draft is looking like they will over-inflate the value of QBs, yet again.

...

Amazing with all the QBs that seem to come out every year, that there still isn't 32 consistently awesome QBs playing in the league.

I don't put a lot of stock in the whole Harbaugh talk this off season, but I do believe there are some conflicts there. Lots of teams have won where there were conflicts, but I have to say my hope for a 4th straight NFC Championship game is fading.

As much as I love football, I'm glad for the break. Three years of one or two plays keeping us from the trophy takes its toll. I've not been following much at all this off season.

The NFL free agency period is the only thing that allows me to bridge the gap until the NHL playoffs begin. When my only options are Soccer or Basketball, the tv tends to stay off if not for the offseason reports.

Apparently, the Saints have unofficially declared they don't want to win anymore, as Darren Sproles (and 30% of their total offense) was let go. In addition, four defensive pieces are also gone, (Roman Harper, Will Smith, Jabari Greer, and also Jonathan Vilma, whose contract is done but won't be resigned.)

Titans are looking to ship RB Chris Johnson.

Hester would be a great addition to the Vikings! :D
Mike Vick would be a great addition to the Lingerie League. :lol:

Outdoor football for the next 2-3 years, can not wait.

After being unable to pry Michael Bennett away from the Seattle Seahawks, the Chicago Bears have turned their attentions toward another pass rusher set to hit the market.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Bears are now pushing hard to sign Oakland Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston.

That they did. And I gotta respect Ware....he had calls from the rest of our division, and he declined them all. Hatcher, on the other hand, is a fuckwad. He's now a Deadskin.

I'm a little worried about the middle of the Pats' D with Wilfork and Spikes gone. Sure, passing the ball on them will be tough with Revis, and later, Browner covering on the corners, but nobody will need to if the other team runs up the gut all game long.

I'm quite shocked they resigned Edelman. I didn't think the Pats were capable of resigning Brady's better receivers. :lol:

Sure, if Smith falters, Vick will be an ok backup. But who will replace Vick when he gets injured? (You know it will happen.) Jets need a 3rd QB.

I'd make a lousy general manager. I would only trade/sign/draft players with cool names. And as far as I'm concerned, there is no cooler name in the NFL right now than LeGarrette Blount. There are great names, but Blount is a name so perfect for a RB, it doesn't need a nickname. 8) Hate to see him leave the Pats, but he'll make the Steelers better this year, as his physical ground-and-pound style fits the prototypical Steelers-style RB.

Chris Johnson’s six-season run with Tennessee is officially over.

The Titans announced they will release Johnson, their star tailback, on Friday.

Johnson, 28, rushed for 7,965 yards and 50 touchdowns in regular season play for Tennessee, which drafted him in Round One in 2008. He has exceeded 1,000 yards rushing in all six of his NFL seasons, and he has missed just one game in that span.

At his best, Johnson has been a clear-cut blue-chip player — one of the game’s most dynamic tailbacks. However, he gained a career-low 3.9 yards per carry a season ago, and he was due $8 million in salary in 2014.

“As an organization, we want to thank Chris for his contributions to the Titans. Chris produced many memorable moments, broke franchise records and was durable over his six year career with our team,” Titans G.M. Ruston Webster said in a statement issued by the club on Friday.

Johnson broke many records while with Tennessee including Most total scrimmage yards in one single season: 2,509 in the 2009 season,One of only six running backs to gain 2,000 yards in one season with 2,006 yards in 2009,He is the only player in NFL history with a touchdown of 50 yards, 60 yards, and 80 yards, in one game.A 57-yard rush, a 69-yard reception, and a 91-yard rush. (week 2 vs Texans, 2009),He is the only player in NFL history with 6 TD runs of over 80 yards. No other player has more than three,He is the only player in NFL history to run for 3 80-yard TD runs in a single season on more than one occasion (2009, 2012),He became the first player in NFL history with six consecutive games of 125+ rushing yards and a 5.0+ yards per carry average in each of those games (Breaking Jim Brown's record set in 1958 of five consecutive games),In 2009, he became the first player in NFL history with at least 2,000 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards in the same season,With his three touchdown runs of 85 or more yards in 2009 (91, 89, 85), and one in 2012 (94), he is the only player in NFL history to register four career touchdown runs of 85 or more yards. No other player has more than two such career touchdown runs,Has an amazing seventy runs and fifteen receptions that went for twenty yards or more in his career.Has over sixteen runs and five catches fifty yards or greater for a total of twenty one plays that went for fifty yards or greater.One of only five RB's in NFL History to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons as a player.Has played in every game in his six year career at RB so he has been very durable as far as playing.

Johnson's current streak of six straight 1,000-yard seasons is the longest active streak in the NFL. No one else has a current streak longer than three years. Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch have done it the last three seasons.

Johnson is one of seven players in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. The list: Eric Dickerson, 2,105 yards in 1984; Adrian Peterson, 2,097 in 2012; Jamal Lewis, 2,066 in 2003; Sanders, 2,053 in 1997; Terrell Davis, 2,008 in 1998; Johnson, 2,006 in 2009; O.J. Simpson, 2,003 in 1973 (14 games).

Since 2008, Johnson had 69 percent of the Titans' rushing yards. That's the highest percentage of his team's rushing yards of any player in the league. Peterson had 66 percent for the Vikings, Matt Forte had 63 percent for the Bears, Maurice Jones-Drew had 59 percent for the Jaguars and Steven Jackson had 58 percent for the Rams.

Below is an 83 yard TD run in 2012 vs. Buffalo,he also had an 80 yard TD run against Chicago and a 94 yard TD run against the NY Jets that same year for a total of three runs over 80 yards that 2012 season.He had six runs in his career over 80 yards no other player in history has ran over 80 yards more than three times except C.J.who has done it six times.

So, was the grass actually greener?

The Tennessee Titans finally waived running back Chris Johnson on Friday and ended one of the most entertaining yet enigmatic chapters in the franchise’s local history.

From the moment he was selected in the first round of the 2008 draft (24th overall), Johnson was exactly what so many Titans fans wanted. That is to say, he was everything Eddie George was not.

George was big. Johnson was small. George was powerful. Johnson was fast. George ran into, and occasionally through defenders. Johnson ran around, and away from them.

For the vast majority of the seven seasons George played in Tennessee, fans longed for something different. They were lulled into complacency by the 1995 Heisman Trophy winner’s consistency. The cries were almost constant for a more dynamic runner, one who could get into the open field and put points on the board rather than one who settled for first downs and took time off the clock.

They got exactly that in Johnson. He had a 51-yard run in his second NFL game. He scored from 66 yards four weeks later and his 4.9 yards per carry average as a rookie far exceeded George’s best (4.1 in 1996 and 1999).

That was just the start. A year later Johnson became the sixth player in NFL history to rush for more than 2,000 yards and he set a league record with 2,509 yards from scrimmage. Not only was the league’s leader in first downs (97), he had 17 plays of 30 yards or more, including touchdown runs of 91, 89 and 85 yards and touchdown receptions of 69 and 66 yards.

Their careers ultimately mirrored their respective styles, though.

George plugged away for eight years (the team was in Houston for his rookie season) and by the time he was released just prior to training camp in 2004, he and Jim Brown were the only two running backs in NFL history to reach 10,000 career yards without having missed a game. He had at least five touchdown runs every season and his longest gain outside of his rookie year was just 40 yards. The difference between his best and worst seasons with Tennessee was 570 yards.

Johnson became the NFL’s career leader with three touchdown runs of 85 yards or more – and he did so in a span of 10 games. There were seven games in which he had runs of 76 yards or more but he failed to sustain his level of play year-to-year or week-to-week. He scored just four rushing touchdowns in 2011 and barely cracked 1,000 yards last fall. The difference between his best and worst seasons with Tennessee was 929 yards.

As different as the players themselves, though, were the results. George and the Titans had nine playoff games (they won five) over five years and got the Titans to the Super Bowl during the 1999 season. Johnson and the Titans made the playoffs once in six seasons and they lost.

It would be a shameful oversimplification to say that disparity was all about who was the featured ball carrier during each era. However, it is fair to say that George gave the Titans an identity, one that filtered throughout the team and created a clear blueprint for how to win games. Johnson, on the other hand, gave the Titans an incendiary element, one that was thrilling in particular moments yet like the cheetah he famously raced last summer, his best came only in short bursts.

Johnson made history with the Titans. There can be no doubt about. Now that he’s gone there’s no telling when, or if the franchise will get another like him.

However, history has been kind to George and it’s a safe bet that many now have a drastically different view of those days of short gains and playoff runs.

Bottom line once i look back on both of their careers i'd have to say i enjoyed Eddie George's time here much more than Chris Johnson.Sure Johnson was liable to rip off a 50,60 or even 70 yard run at anytime but in the long run his boom or bust style hurt the teams offense and in the win/loss column.All Eddie did was move the chains,wear down defenses and win games and while he didn't have many electrifying runs he did ultimately get his team into the postseason quite often something that only happened once in Johnson's career.
