MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:20 PM) Anyway go Hawks
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:21 PM) Why the Seahawks aren't very good this year. They have 22 or 24 undrafted players on their roster because they had to let hallf or over half of their team go from last year because of having to pay so much to certain star players
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:21 PM) No team with that many undrafted players on the roster is going to be good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) I'm talking about the defense
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) So they have an excuse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) How many starters are back from last year?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:23 PM) They had to let defensive players go too. And that's why they refused to pay Chancellor. They don't have the money
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:24 PM) Most of the Defense is back from last season.. who besides the 2nd CB do they not have?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:24 PM) I don't know how many starters. I didn't look through the whole active roster from last year to this year. But I know they let a good many starters go too
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:25 PM) Anyway we need them to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) it puts us in a 4 way tie for the WC
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) Maybe Hou can win the division
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) They had to let a corner and safety go from the defense and some dline from the starting line up. And some players on the online too
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) That's why Russel isn't getting protection and Lynch is having a down year
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) Yeah but you need to chr
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 PM) check my list of tiebreakers we are down in division and conference games. If the Jets don't beat the Bills and win most of the conference games no playoffs
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:31 PM) Plus we are down in schedule strength to everyone in the hunt for the playoffs except Houston but they have the win and tiebreaker against the Jets
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:32 PM) Oh and also the Bills are below us in schedule strength but have a win against us so have tiebreaker for now
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:33 PM) Chiefs have the easy schedule in the league got the rest of the season so chances of them not getting in are slim
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:35 PM) Chiefs and Stelers are in the drivers seat
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) Right but there is a lot of games to go still
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) who knows maybe we beat Tenn NYG Dal and Buf
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) 10-6?? Maybe
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) 1 game at a time I agree
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) KC and Oakland have to play each other twice
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:38 PM) Pitt Still has to play Cinn and Denver
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Who they may beat.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) We just need Sea to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) Game over
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) Hawks win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:42 PM) Well if they make the PAT
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:42 PM) My bad I thought Pitt had 0 timeouts left
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:46 PM) I don't trust Denver against any good team with their backup qb in. I except the Chiefs to overtake the division. They really don't trust him either since an injured Manning is the #2 qb. He barely won last week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:47 PM) Ben is hurt now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:47 PM) Don't think its anything big tho
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:48 PM) But Steelers losing today and if they lose against the Bengals would help
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:55 PM) Ben has a possible concussion
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:08 PM) And Pitt plays Indy next week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:09 PM) If Pittsburgh lose it help if indy lose Houston might be in 1st and have a tie breaker over indy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:16 PM) I just can't wait for Sunday. Me and my brother are going to the game. He's a giants fan. So somebody is going home mad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:46 PM) Where is frosty??.and his MIGHTY DOLPHINS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:58 PM) Marshall is 70 yards away from being our 1st 1000 yard receiver since cotch in 07
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:03 AM) f*** new England!! And gronk is hurt
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 12:04 AM) Nice to see the Pats won't have an undefeated season. That said the wheat her made the difference. Brady is accurate as heck and the snow affected the pass timing with the wr's
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 12:06 AM) Without the snow I couldn't see the Broncos winning that game. But again great to see the Pats chance at a perfect season go down the tubes

Brunell accepts reduced contract
By David Elfin
March 1, 2007

Mark Brunell's shaky quarterbacking cost him his starting job in 2006, but Brunell saved the Washington Redskins more than $4 million by redoing his contract yesterday.
Brunell, who was due to earn $6.64 million in the third year of a six-year deal, agreed to what is basically a one-year, $2.4 million contract to back up Jason Campbell. With that, the Redskins went from being tight against the NFL's $109 million salary cap to having about $6 million to spend as the free agent signing period begins tomorrow.
Tendering punter Derrick Frost -- but not fellow restricted free agents Ryan Boschetti and Jim Molinaro -- by today's deadline will cost $850,000. However, the Redskins more than paid for Frost when they saved $1 million yesterday by cutting tight end Christian Fauria, a disappointment in his only Washington season before going on injured reserve in November.
The Redskins can save another $2.223 million by cutting receiver David Patten, who has just one catch since going on IR in November 2005, and kicker John Hall, who missed half the games with injuries the past three years. Both will be 33 this fall.
The presence of veteran receivers Santana Moss, Antwaan Randle El, Brandon Lloyd and James Thrash means Patten won't be missed, while Todd Yoder -- who could re-sign as early as today -- was an effective replacement for Fauria down the stretch in 2006. And young kicker Shaun Suisham, who's bound to the Redskins as an exclusive rights free agent, was as accurate in his December trial as Hall ever was.
With more than $8 million then to spend, the Redskins could afford four starter-level players. Assuming there's no last-minute push to re-sign left guard Derrick Dockery, Washington would need to replace the four-year starter.
For now, Mike Pucillo, who re-signed yesterday for the $595,000 minimum for his four years of experience, would inherit the job. Pucillo, 27, started 12 games for Buffalo in 2003 and six for Cleveland in 2005 before coming to Washington last season.
However, the Redskins' bigger concerns are at middle linebacker -- where some believe they already have an agreement in principle with Buffalo's London Fletcher-Baker on a long-term contract -- and cornerback, where they're expected to make a serious run at the Bills' Nate Clements. With most of the Redskins' 31 rivals having many more millions more to spend and not much talent available, it promises to be a seller's market that will bid up the prices for top free agents.
If the Fletcher-Baker deal isn't consummated and Clements opts to sign elsewhere, the Redskins could trade for middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma, the 2004 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year who struggled when the New York Jets switched to a 3-4 scheme in 2006, and cornerback Dre Bly, who wants out of Detroit and whom the Lions are shopping.
Cornerback Fred Smoot, a Redskins starter from 2001 to 2004, also would be a possibility if, as expected, he's cut by Minnesota after two contentious seasons with the Vikings.
If the Redskins need to clear more cap space, they can approach veterans like offensive tackle Chris Samuels ($8.85 million), cornerback Shawn Springs ($7.35 million), running back Clinton Portis ($7.09 million), defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin ($6.16 million), linebacker Marcus Washington ($6.02 million), guard Randy Thomas ($5.41 million), Moss ($5.03 million) and center Casey Rabach ($3.65 million).
Portis and Moss are the only players on that list who won't be 30 by October. If the Redskins sign Clements, Springs might be released. Griffin seriously slumped the past two years and could be in trouble if the Redskins use the No. 6 choice in April's college draft on Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch.
Defensive ends Phillip Daniels, who will be 34 on Sunday, and Renaldo Wynn, a 32-year-old backup last season, also are in serious jeopardy of becoming ex-Redskins with their respective cap costs of $3.21 million and $4.03 million and with Washington eyeing ends Gaines Adams and Jamaal Anderson with the sixth pick.
