Kevin Dyson understands better than almost anyone else the pressure of being a first round receiver with this franchise, and he has some wise words for Kenny Britt:
"The best advice I could give [Britt] would be to just worry about yourself... he is coming on a team that is sort of established and is just trying to add a couple of pieces. He's in a situation where he can just worry about himself. You know people will be shouting your name if you drop a ball and there will be pressure. They will always expect him to do more, but you can't worry about all that stuff.''

Comcast backed-off of their plans to drop the NFL Network all together, and plan to continue offering it on the death-nail sports package ensuring that most folks won't see it. Here's a recap of the very mature fight these two spoiled high school girls high powered corporations are having:
Comcast, the nation's largest cable company, said the NFL asked for a 350 percent increase in the fees it would pay to carry the network, according to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission.
Since the fees are based on the number of viewers, Comcast was able to pay less to the NFL Network by moving the channel from a digital tier with 8.6 million subscribers to a sports package that has 2 million subscribers and costs an extra $7 per month. The Philadelphia-based cable operator said it was allowed to do so under their contract, signed in 2004.
The NFL said Comcast made the move in retaliation for not getting the rights to show eight live NFL games for its Versus sports channel.
The NFL pointed out that Comcast rivals such as Dish Network Corp., DirecTV Group Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. all agreed to the same rates to carry the network. The NFL Network also said that with a smaller audience, it couldn't get sports packages like Pac-10 Conference college football games, which had a minimum viewership requirement.
It has also been reported elsewhere that the NFL said Comcast had a very big butt and dressed like a common tramp. Comcast's responding text message could not be decoded by MCM staff.
