The worst time for this

Standard

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter San Francisco 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan has been put on temporary leave.

For the 49ers to get rid of their general manager, with a little over a month until the National Football League’s Draft, is one of the worst things to do.

According to reports, the reason for the split is due to personal reasons.

It wouldn’t surprise me that the reasons for the pissing match will be over something stupid.

For this to be happening in the middle of March shows how bad ownership of the team is.

I have read articles before on San Francisco based media outlet’s websites that 49er fans were already upset with ownership before this incident.

I bet the calls for the York family to sell the 49ers are already rolling into sports talk radio stations.

In the end, 49ers ownership should have really kept their mouth shut until after the Draft when front office overhauls are suppose to be done.

Bills fans shouldn’t worry about Edwards

Standard

Many media outlets have been pointing out the fact that the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks never extended a contract to defensive end Dwan Edwards due to failed physicals.

However, Buffalo Bills fans shouldn’t worry about Edwards’ neck.

Edwards had his c3 and c4 vertebrate fused in 2008 after a preseason injury to his neck, which caused him to miss the entire season.

In 2009 Edwards played the entire season, which included starting from week six on due to injury.

The one athlete that comes to mind that had spinal fusion in their neck and went on to have a successful career after is former Detroit Redwings center Steve Yzerman who had it done in 1994.

According to the Buffalo News, the Bills signed Edwards after Dr. Andrew Cappuccino examined him.

In the end, with the job that Dr. Cappuccino did with Kevin Everett I will trust the Bills on this one.

It’s is Leinart’s job to lose

Standard

When Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner retired many thought that the job would be given to back up quarterback Matt Leinart.

According to the Cardinals own website, head coach Ken Wisenhunt confirmed to the media Wednesday.

Wisenhunt met with the media Wednesday after the Cardinals signed quarterback Derek Anderson to a two year $7.25 million contract.

In the conference call Wisenhunt stated that Leinart is the starting quarterback.

However, the most telling quote came from Anderson.

According to the report Anderson stated, “It was (told) to me I was going to be the number two and come in and compete.”

That means even though Leinart is the starter if Anderson is the better quarterback Wisenhunt will not hesitate to make the change.

In the end, it is now or never for Leinart.

A prime example of what every reporter has to deal with

Standard

When going through college teachers let it be known to prospective journalists that there are people out there that no matter what you do there will be someone who will bash everything you do.

Here is one good prime example of it from Steve Weber in regards to my acceptance into the

“There is a ZERO percent chance that this is true. There is no earthly way that any organization would actually approve you to be a member – ESPECIALLY when it concerns writing. I would wager a large sum of money that they made a mistake & will be correcting it VERY shortly. And when they do, you must print an immediate retraction and apologize. Also, just to show the absurdity of this, you state that this “membership” (which isn’t true) will improve the overall quality of the website, BUT you didn’t bother to even proofread the very post where you claim quality is going up?! “Current Buffalo New Buffalo Bills beat reporter Mark Gaughan is currently vice president.” – HAHAHAHA – I rest my case. My second grade teacher would have a field day with her red pen if I wrote this on a paper back then.

First, wow I forgot a s whoopie freaking doo.

Second, what you are saying is slander and libel as I do have proof of the transaction and a direct email from the president of the PFWA.

Thirdly, if you are the same Steve Weber from Warsaw Country Radio Station WCJW 1140 Am, hopefully you are not stupid enough to call me a liar on air as it would result in your radio station getting sued.

Actually, I do hope you go ahead, because the lawsuit would probably show up on the local news and give me a ton of free exposure.

In the end, next time readers you want to email a journalist to blast them over an article just save it as we usually just laugh at them and then look at it like your an idiot.

Have the Bills lost their marketing touch

Standard

While looking through my twitter account my caught a retweet by WECK’s Brad Riter from Mike Sullivan of East Aurora on the picture that accompanied a letter from the Buffalo Bills for him to renew tickets.

With the picture as bad as it is one has to wonder if the Bills have lost their marketing touch.

The picture is an endzone shot of Brian Moorman punting the football in their loss to the Cleveland Browns this past year.

You mean to tell me that you don’t have a picture of Lee Evans catching a football for a touchdown or even.

Heck, even safety Jarius Byrd making an interception would have been better.

What makes things worst is that the quality of the photo isn’t even that good as there is a huge glare spot just above Moorman’s left knee.

Either someone making up the letter didn’t clear the photo with their boss or they have become real idiots down at One Bills Drive.

In the end, the Bills got some damage control to be doing.

Glanville’s Revelation is startling

Standard

According to Thom Abraham of WNSR in Nashville, TN, via ProFootballTalk.com, former Atlanta Falcon head coach Jerry Glanville made a startling revelation about why he traded quarterback Brett Farve to the Green Bay Packers.

The revelation being that Farve’s addiction to alcohol and pain killers was really bad.

“I had to get him out of Atlanta. . . .  I could not sober him up,” Glanville said.

Glanville went on to state that the reason Farve sobered up due to the fact he got traded to a place where almost everything was closed.

As we have seen with what has happened with former San Diego Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf an addiction is really hard to overcome.

Glanville is right what most likely happened with Farve is that he realized he had a problem after he went to some great lengths to get a hold of some alcohol and painkillers in the middle of the night.

In the end, hopefully this will will serve as a motivator for Leaf to clean up his act.
