OTAs

Dallas hasn't officially starting the training camp, but voluntary OTAs (Organized Team Activities) are going on, and mini-camp will be coming along. For starters, we have a serious injury to second-string cornerback, Orlando Scandrick, who "shattered" his finger on the 26th of May. The injury is indefinite for now. Scandrick believes he isn't going to be catching balls until training camp starts in late July. He was breaking up a pass intended for wide receiver Manuel Johnson, a seventh round pick from last year, and his hand immediately went numb, but it was a while later before he truly realized how serious the injury was. He had surgery soon after and the pin that was inserted into finger isn't going to be taken out for a while. There has been no news about Keith Brooking's [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Well, it's been a relaxing week here in Louisiana reading up on everything Falcons related. If you're like me, this is the time of year you hate the most. It's off-season, it's after the NFL draft and we are four months away from the Pre-Season. These are the days sports like Basketball and Baseball take all the spots up on ESPN and other related sports affiliates. But we all know there is only one true sport of Kings, and that's the NFL. So to kill time I've caught up with fans over at The Falcons Roost and the topics created a lot of insight. One thing people cannot say in the modern age of technology is that fans are out of the loop. Rather, they are quite involved in the day to day of their respected teams. The Atlanta Falcons fan [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , ,
After a long Memorial Day weekend the Texans returned to the practice field this week to continue workouts and training.  The main thrust has been and continues to be the defense. DE Antonio Smith worked out with the team for the first time this week.  He is still learning the new system but is already forecasting the Texans to make the playoffs this year.  Smith is quoted as saying that he has the same vibe with the Texans that he had last year with Arizona. WR and Return man Jacoby Jones is back with a new attitude.  He received his college degree this summer and is training harder than before.  Coach Kubiak has taken notice of Jones' new work ethic and is starting to like what he see's.  It remains to be seen how much he has matured and whether he will play a bigger role in [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
For the first time in a long time, its not the Carolina Panthers' offense that needs fine tuning in the offseason. The Panthers "O" was good for 25.9 points per game last season, seventh best in the league. They also averaged 152.3 yards per game on the ground, good enough for third in the league. In the past, Panthers teams have been known for their tenacious defense and sub-par offense. Outside of Steve Smith they have never been blessed with a superstar on that side of the ball, and the statistics have backed that up. Now that DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart have burst onto the scene as arguably the best two-back tandem in the NFL, it's the other side of the ball that's having problems. The Panthers defense allowed 28 points per game in the team's final seven regular [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
DeMarcus Ware has officially become my current favorite Cowboy. I used to be torn between a few players actually. I always like Romo of course. Who doesn't like the star quarterback on your own team? Marion Barber: a guy you had to love. He was a fourth round underdog pick who used his toughness to gain a starting job for America's Team. He may struggle at times, but put him beyond the line and he is unstoppable one on one. Terence Newman: a Hall of Famer in my opinion, not based on his stats, but what he did on the field. His interceptions are works of art to go along with his excellent recovery speed and amazing [...] Continue reading → | , ,
