The NFL's labor unrest could delay a deal for Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle, and there's a slim chance that could open the door for the Titans to plead their case with the veteran QB. He says he wants to stay in Seattle, but he's probably a veteran that Fisher & co. would love: he's been to Super Bowl, he's old (35), he' always hurt and he's thrown 34 INTs (plus another 13 fumbles) over the past two years. How can teams not be clamoring for a guy who brings that much to the table? If we did bring him in his jersey should have Hassle-ChandlerO'DonnellCollins-beck on the back.
Montana's future governor made the PFW All-Rookie team as a punt returner, but the most interesting part is Joe Haden making the team over Alterraun Verner. I didn't see the Browns play more than 20 snaps this year so I don't really know if he was better, but I'm calling shenanigans on this one. Also, Clay Matthews is tabbed for DPOY, but he probably didn't notice because he was so excited to win MCM's award for Gramsey's Favorite Hair Style.
Former Titans secondary coach Jerry Gray will be the new
DC secondary coach at Texas, which instantly upgrades his chances of being tabbed by Bud to replace Chuck Cecil.
PFT brings us the shocking news that the Steelers' viscously overrated center Maurkice Pouncey kind of cheated on a crucial 4th and 1. Pouncey used some confusion among the coaches and officials as a distraction while he moved the ball almost a full yard forward. Not ground-breaking stuff here, but it's shocking considering that the Steelers are the ideal image of how an organization should handle itself... except of course for James Harrison trying to paralyze everyone in the stadium, the rampant steroid abuse on those great the 70's teams, their rapist/non-hlemet wearing QB and fans who match Jets fans in obnoxiousness, but live in a city nobody wants to visit.
Congrats to Mike Vick for climbing out of
the graves he dug for countless dogs his own grave to win Comeback Player of the Year.
