    Tackling someone with the ball is one thing. I'm amazed that Hines Ward's hits while blocking (Keith Rivers) haven't come up in all the press coverage of this. To me that's more egregious than someone making a hit intended to force a fumble or an incompletion

    I don't know how Todd Heap was cleared to play on Sunday and then I don't know how they let him go back out after passing out on the field. He's clearly not "right" and I have to think the NFL is going to investigate the Ravens on this one.

    They're saying he collapsed because of the "shoulder stinger", but he also doesn't remember collapsing. I still have to think it's something to do with his head.

    It's cliche but Jay Cutler is Jeff George to almost a T.

    I love watching him flame out because he's so arrogant.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    yet the idea of avoiding Hall apparently never crept into Cutler's mind.

    "No," he said. "Not at all. I've played against him before. There's no reason to shy away from him. I mean that's hard for me to say throwing four picks to the guy, but I still think if we had to play him tomorrow, I'd go after him every time."

    So, as I did last year, here's the quarterly report: The Jags were a roller coaster ride of emotions last year and this year is no different.

    After a winter of discontent, it was a relief to play well at home in Week 1, with a workman-like win over the Broncos. Garrard was decent and no Tebow highlights to inflame the local Gator homers.

    But in week 2, the dreaded west coast curse hit again, and Jags got blown out by 25 points in SD. Garrard looked bad. They pulled him late in the game and backup Luke McCown got hit with a season ending knee injury. And the new backup they signed was the ever exciting Todd Bouman.

    The Jags came home for Game 3 to face Mike Vick and Eagles. They got blown out by 25 points again, yet somehow this seemed even worse. Garrard was terrible. And it was obvious the Jags were letting time go off the clock rather than have a sense of urgency trying to score.

    The only thing that brightened the week 4 preparations for the Colts was the Jags winning the waiver claim on Trent Edwards. Now at least the Jags would have a semi-competent back up QB.

    Despite the doom and gloom over the impending beatdown coming from the Colts, the Stadium sold out for the 3rd straight game. And then a funny thing happened.... the Jags showed up.

    The way the game ended up was a dream scenario like Bruce hitting the walk off homer in the 9th to win the Division.

    Make no mistake about it. The Jags were not the best team that day. They got a couple lucky breaks with fumbles to win. But that just makes it sweeter. After both teams scored on the opening possession, the Jags never trailed (but were tied)... but you just had this feeling that something would happen to enable a Colts win.

    Then with about 1:30 to go and Colts driving for tying score, the Jags safety had a game clinching interception in his hands and dropped it. The Colts went in for the score with less than a minute to play. And worse, the Jags took a time out with the clock stopped for a replay, letting the fans know they were not going for the win, just content to head for overtime.

    And sure enough, when the Jags got the ball with 42 seconds left, they run a draw play for 8 yards and do not call time out. The Colts say " hey, you don't want to win?.... maybe we do!!". The Colts call the time out.

    Something then stirs in Jags, and they throw a couple completed passes, but can only get to the 41 yard line of the Colts. They try another pass and Garrard throws a pick 6 right at one the Colts and he drops it.

    Del Rio decides to let Josh Scobee try the longest field goal in franchise history, and he splits the uprights!!!

    The entire town went crazy...... In one week, the roller coaster went from the absolute bottom to the absolute top.

    Jags end up 2-2 for the opening quarter.

    What else have we learned? If you're a Colts fan, don't be so glad Jags are on your schedule twice a year.

    OK, it's half time. The Jags roller coaster ride continues. The week after the Colts big victory, the Jags went to Buffalo, and after falling behind 10-0 with a turnover, the Jags came back, controlled the game and had a nice clear victory.

    The Jags ride that emotion into a home Monday Night sellout against the Titans. And the Jags lay an egg. An ugly egg. Garrard gets knocked out with a concussion, Trent Edwards comes in an plays fairly well, but not enough to make a real impact.

    And Edwards hit his hand on a helmet late in the game meaning that even though they were way down, they had to keep running the ball giving the impression that they weren't even trying to win. The crowd was angry, and there was a lot of talk that the sellout streak would end next home game.

    However, the next 2 games would be on the road. The next was at KC. Garrard was ruled out, and Edwards was iffy with the hand injury. So as backup, Jags signed Todd Bouman who hadn't played a game in 5 years. As it turns out, Edwards was not ready, and Bouman became the starter. The Jags laid the egg everyone expected, losing their 4th game of the year by more than 20 points.

    So, at it's low point one again, the Jags go into Dallas, and not only pull off the upset, they win easily. The Jags head into the bye week, on a high note, and at 4-4.

    2 weeks until the next game. Will the high of the Cowboys win extend the sellouts?

    The season has exposed lots of weaknesses. The Jags need a QB, defensive backfield help, and more OL. The schedule is tough from here on out. The are probably still looking at a 6 or 7 win season.

    Beating Dallas with Jon Kitna at QB isn't an upset for anyone. Maybe Buffalo. And I don't care if Vegas said Dallas was the favorite there.

    Quite a trade the Vikings made to get Moss, giving up a third round draft pick to get Moss for four games.

    Not sure the Pats want him.

    Teams that I could see signing him include Washington and Chicago. Maybe Baltimore?

    How about the Jets, LOL ... Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Randy Moss. What a trio.

    Even better ... Ocho Cinco, TO and Moss.

    Re: 2010 NFL Season Discussion

    Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the official Monday waiver wire has been released by the league office.

    And that it doesn't contain the name of Randy Moss.

    Thus, it means that Moss has not yet officially been released.
