    $100 Million talent.

    1 cent brain.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    In related news, ESPN has announced the launch of it's new TOPN offering.

    "The TOProgrammingNetwork was a no brainer" said an unnamed ESPN executive. "We've already got months of footage in our archives. It's sports, drama, soap opera, talk, and comedy all rolled into one yapping tsunami".

    Hey TO, how's that decision to hire Drew Rosenahus working for you? Not just in salary, but in overall image.

    T.O. might be a giant distraction, but he's an amazing football player and a difference-maker on Sundays. You can't just remove a component of a team like T.O. and expect to be as effective on offense.

    When does his attitude over shadow his talent? I think that point was reached this off season, I don't think they will ever win a SB with a guy like him around so why keep him?

    I'll take T.O. in Cleveland every day of the week and twice on Sundays.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    TO pushes the argument between "win at all costs" vs. the old school values of sportsmanship to it's outer limits.

    It seems sad to me that we don't seem to care at all about the concept of sportsmanship. In fact, it's laughed at. I'm sure my raising the issue will be laughed at.

    Win at all costs. That's all that matters now. To me, that's very sad.

    Lack of sportsmanship is one of the main reasons I can't watch the NBA anymore. And it's incredibly irritating in the NFL as well. A guy makes a good hit and he's in the face of his opponent. I guy makes a measly 12 yard run and he's showboating like he just won the super bowl. I hate it. I still believe in the value of sportsmanship.

    This should cost him some endorsement bucks. Maybe that'll shut him up?

    I wouldn't. He's a cancer. Just as this current situation shows - he's all about recognition of personal accomplishments with him (translation? = super ego and a BIG mouth). He would never be able to get along with other talented receivers on a team who he feels is getting 'his" throws from the QB.

    In Cleveland - Edwards is gonna be fine. And so is Bryant. So will Winslow once we get him back and keep him from riding his motorcycle up/dpwn stairs. I emailed management and told them to get him a Big Wheel.

    We have to get Frye in there as QB to see what we have. This kid has an accurate arm and had a solid pre-season. But it will also determine what direction we need to go in the next draft. QB? Linebacker?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
