End of the line for Reed?

Standard

Ed Reed is strongly considering retirement due to a nerve impingement in his neck and shoulder.

With what Reed revealed on the NFL Network’s Superbowl set Friday, via ProFootballTalk.com, it is not looking good for him to play again.

Reed revealed Friday that the nerve impingement is getting worst.

The impingement is in the worst area for any defender as every single defender uses their shoulders for tackling.

Even if Reed was to use his good shoulder for tackling the impingement could get worst just from hitting ground.

Reed went on to state that he will consult doctors to give their medical opinions on the situation.

The reality is that unless surgery can completely fix the problem Reed should just suck it up and play as long after his career is done he will have problems anyways.

In the end hopefully Reed will make the right decision to play as he is still the best free safety in the National Football League.

Facebook page up

Standard

Well we finally have a facebook page.

There is another one with a picture that I tried to setup via my phone.

So, th offical one we will be using is the one without a picture for now.

Somethings never change

Standard

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin has been on the wrong side of the law several times.

Once again Irvin is on the wrong side and this time it is a civi suit.

According to the Miami Herald, via ProFootballTalk.com, Irvin allegedly sexually assaulted a woman back in 2007, right before his Hall of Fame Speech, at the Hard Rock Cafe resort and casino.

Irvin hasn’t been in the news for a long time, but the fact of the matter is that he is in this position because he thinks he can do whatever he wants, because he is Michael Irvin.

Criminals usually don’t change their ways what they do is that they get smarter on how to cover things up, which is why Irvin has not been in the news.

Irvin is already seeing the consequences as he has been let go by ESPN 103.3 in Dallas.

Unfortunately, they were going to let him go anyways due to poor ratings, which means this expedited the process.

In the end it looks like the only thing that Irvin was good at Irvin was playing football.

Who is in and who is out at defensive tackle?

Standard

With the Buffalo Bills switching to a 3-4 defense there is one big question.

Who will stay with the Bills and who will be released by the Bills at defensive tackle.

In a 3-4 a team plays only one defensive tackle with an additional player to back him up.

Obviously, the starter at the nose tackle will be Marcus Stroud.

The big decision is who will back him up.

Many Bills media members will probably say that it is a no brainer as it should be Kyle Williams,

That would be the wrong decision as they moved Williams over to the small defensive tackle to avoid double teams as much as possible.

In a 3-4 the nose tackle is always double teamed by the center and a guard that will help block for two seconds and will move onto a linebacker.

Williams will most likely be release by the Bills as he cannot handle double teams and he is too fat to be a effective defensive end.

As for Spencer Johnson you can say the same thing as Williams, which means he should be gone as well.

That means the backup will most likely be John McCargo as he proved last year in the preseason that he can handle double teams.

In the end boys don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

Facebook page

Standard

Well I guess I am gonna have to create a facebook page for here.

I been debating about that for a while now.

However, with a friend request that I saw on my email today I guess I need to.

For a while now I have been wondering if I actually had any real people reading since I am getting a lot of spam commentary to try Viagra.

I know I am 30 years old and will be needing it sometime in the future, but just not right now as I am not that old, nor a porn star.

Since I already worked out this afternoon I will probably get around to it tonight as right now I am at work.

In the end thanks for reading.

Owens departure would be good news

Standard

Accoring to Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, Buffalo Bills wide receive Terrell Owens will sign with the Bengals.

To the Bills that is great in a couple of ways.

First, wide receivers Steve Johnson and James Hardy will have their playing time significantly increased.

This will allow the Bills to finally find out what they have in the pair.

Also, whoever the quarterback is next year doesn’t have to worry about getting the ball into Owens hands and now can concentrate on just finding the open wide receiver.

Finally, there will be fewer drops as several times a game Owens would drop a pass that would kill a drive.

In the end the Bills can finally get back to just playing football on offense.

Bills have options at linebacker

Standard

The Buffalo Bills have officially made the switch back to a 3-4 defense after being switched to a 4-3 in 2001.

In what looked to be a thin free agent crop will produce some options for the Bills at linebacker.

Right now there looks like there will three options at least at linebacker in Detroit Lions linebacker Larry Foote, New England Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas, and Miami Dolphins linebaxkJoey Porter.

Foote played last year at middle linebacker for the Lions in their 4-3, but is familiar with a 3-4 defense as he was previously a starting linebacker with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If the Bills were to sign Foote then linebacker Kawika Mitchell would play at outside linebacker.

Thomas for the past three seasons has played with the Patriots at outside linebacker, but he appears to be on the way out the door.

That would would move Mitchell to to the weak side middel linebacker position.

Finally, there is Porter as he wants to be traded.

Porter saw the number of snaps he would play a game reduced as the Miami Dolphins forced him into a rotation.

Porter feels he is still an everydown player, which is the reason for the trade request.

In the end linebacker is not a pressing need and the Bills can concentrate elsewhere with their first round draft pick.
