Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right So How Come Both The NFL And NFLPA Come Off Looking Like The Biggest Idiots On The Face of The Planet ?

I’m not so sure what to make of the idiocy now taking place between the NFL and NLFPA (Players’ Union) as it relates to the collective bargaining agreement . Several of the patrons of my site have long held the belief that the league and union will come to an amicable agreement that will be equitable for all of the parties concerned . Well with the expiration of the existing agreement due to expire at midnight 3rd March , I’d seriously like to know how is it that the owners , at the league’s behest cannot simply reach agreement with the NFLPA headed by its President Kevin Mawae and Executive Director DeMaurice Smith . On the opposing side of the issue we have NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell , and the owners headed by some of the most powerful men within the game , Robert Kraft , Bud Adams , Jerry Jones , Woody Johnson , Steve Tisch , John K Mara , Pat Bowlen and Art Rooney II .

The Cincinnati Bengals had a disappointing season in 2010 after coming off a 10-6 season where they swept the AFC North with a 6-0 record. They were expected to compete for the division and possibly the Super Bowl.

When they signed free agent WR Terrell Owens, many people thought this could one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Instead, the offense never was able to reach its potential.

The Bengals ranked a disappointing 22nd in points scored (395) and 20th in yards gained (5,289).

WR Chad Ochocinco has established quite a reputation in the NFL. From 2003 to 2007, Ochocinco averaged 92.4 receptions for 1,374 yards, and 8.6 touchdown receptions…

I hope you enjoyed the 2010 NFL season because there is a decent possibility that will be the last football you watch for quite some time. Hopefully that isn’t the case.

Hopefully the powers that be get their acts together so we can have a 2011 season. Personally, I wouldn’t mind a lockout if they lock out because the players refuse to play an 18-game schedule. That would be a disaster. Outside of the owners, I don’t think anybody wants to see that. The NFL wants to work on protecting its players, so how exactly does adding two more games reflect that?

Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez appeared on Jim Rome Is Burning and made an excellent point. He has played 14 seasons in the NFL. Had he played with an 18-game season, that adds 28 games. That is nearly an additional two NFL seasons. This is coming from a guy that has enjoyed no serious injuries in his career, missing only two games!

This mock draft does not project any trades, which ensures it’s inaccurate before it even begins. The depth of talent along the defensive line in incredible this year, and the quality of wide receivers and cornerbacks aren’t too shabby either.

1. Carolina PanthersDT Nick Fairley, Auburn – Before the draft even starts, the Panthers will certainly give up next year’s second rounder so they can move up in this year’s draft. There’s is no way Carolina lets Charles Johnson go a year after they let Julius Peppers walk. They already have good developmental DEs in Everette Brown and Greg Hardy. Teammate Cam Newton may get a long look here, but Fairley offers more immediate help.

There are still some things to work out with the NFL playoff picture, but nine of the 12 spots have been clinched headed into the final week of the season. However, only two of the first round byes have been clinched and only four of the eight divisions have been decided. That means that most of the teams are going to be involved in meaningful games in the last week of play.

Also having been clinched is the first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The Carolina Panthers cannot be passed for futility, meaning that at the close of the season they will have the No. 1 pick in the draft. However, with nine teams sitting at either four or five wins there is a lot to work out before the Top 10 is set.

Barring the unexpected, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will most likely win his second MVP award in four seasons this January.  His only competition was Phildelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who probably lost any chance at the award with a 24-14 home loss to a Minnesota Vikings team that was 5-9 coming into that game.

As with any player’s MVP season, Brady is having one of the best seasons of his NFL career. In 15 starts, he has 314 completions in 476 pass attempts for 3,701 yards, 34 touchdown passes, four interceptions and a QB rating of 109.8.

This weekend, he broke longtime Cleveland Browns QB Bernie Kozar’s NFL record for consecutive passes without an interception (308). Brady has an active steak of 319 consecutive passes without an interception headed into Week 17.

The exciting Wild Card Weekend ended with three great games and one snoozer. Here is a look back at the four playoff games and comments about all eight of the playoff teams that participated this weekend.

1) New Orleans Saints 36 at Seattle Seahawks 41: There is a reason they actually play games instead of have experts decide who should advance to the next round.

This seemed like the easiest pick in the history of sports. The Saints were defending Super Bowl champions, and the Seahawks were the first team in the history of the NFL to make the playoffs with a losing record in a non-strike season. Even though the game was in Seattle, the Saints were a good road team, earning a 17-14 victory at the 13-3 Atlanta Falcons and playing the 12-4 Baltimore Ravens tough to a 30-24 defeat. Seattle was told it did not belong and was given no chance to win the game.

A great thing about sports is teams perceived as having no chance in the postseason that suddenly rise to the occasion and take advantage of an opportunity to be great.

In 2006, the St. Louis Cardinals made the MLB playoffs with a record of 83-78, making many people question whether they belonged in the playoffs.

They beat a San Diego Padres team that won 88 games, a New York Mets team that won 97 games and a Detroit Tigers team that won 95 games on their way to a World Series championship.

The same almost happened in the NFL in 2008, when the Arizona Cardinals won the NFC West with a 9-7 record. Many people thought they would be one-and-done. Instead, they beat an Atlanta Falcons team that won 11 games, a Carolina Panthers team that won 12 games and a Philadelphia Eagles team that was 9-6-1. In the Super Bowl, they led the 12-4 Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20 before surrendering a game-winning touchdown in the closing minute to lose 27-23.

I decided not to comment on this story in my recap, because I wanted to wait and see the extent of the knee injury.  I was not going to make a snap judgment about a player without having some facts to support my opinion.

One of the big stories coming out of the NFC Championship Game (won by the Green Bay Packers 21-14 over the Chicago Bears) was that Bears QB Jay Cutler sat most of the second half with a knee injury.  It caused a lot of people to question his toughness and whether he should have tried to play with the injury.
