Thanks, I try to catch them when I can. They're really excellent productions.

Speaking of NFL networks. I was listening to a discussion of the Pats tightend situation this morning and one of the commentators referred to Hernandez as 'he who would not be named.' Made me laugh.

News coming out today that Google talked with the NFL about buying the rights to Sunday Ticket after the Directv agreement expires next year.

Combine that with college football and the point of network television disappears for me.

The NFL would make more money if they let all cable/sat Companies just sell games Ala Carte.

Last minute alcohol induced decisions would rule the day.

Most fans don't give a crap about EVERY game, but would pay dearly for a few......

Just sayin'.....

Looks like Tebow mania is about to run out of road. It's sad the guy has heart, he just can't play QB in the NFL. His college coach (Meyer) should have told him, you'll never make it in the NFL unless you can switch positions, guess he couldn't do it or was unwilling to try.

Bleacher Report has a column today saying Tebow looks slower and makes worse decisions than he ever has. They are saying scouts are stunned at how fast his skills have eroded.

I think getting second guessed and torn apart killed his confidence.

I read another report that says his hands aren't good enough to be a TE. Basically, he is a blocking fullback now.

Sad.

Yeah, well a few of those passes last night I thought he was in. I had to check the Jersey # nope, that was Tom, nope that was Mallett. Pitiful. Tebow could have done better and didn't get a chance. That makes me think Bill has given up on the idea of integrating him as a backup QB. I am not sure he has room to keep him with TE problems. hard to have good depth with the roster and salary caps.

Phew, I am done cussing about that game........terrible, just terrible. I hope they went right home and into the practice facility.

Yep, it was bad. They got killed by Detroit in 2010 or 11 preseason, and won 13 games, so all hope is not lost.

Haven't seen any of this year's films. Last year's were excellent.
