Villanueva's one of those guys you could imagine becoming president some day. Fascinating guy to talk to.

Eagles have signed US Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva to a contract. He'll play DE. I did a story on him last month: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...-one-last-shot

So I carpooled in with a lady and we talk football and the discussion turns to David Carr and I said I hope this draft pick goes better than that one because he wasn't very good. She took exception and said the team ruined him. I agreed but added that Carr didn't put in the hours studying film to get better. His own teammates said that. She said he was a family man and should be with his family. I said there are other QB's that are family men, but they put in extra time to be great. She said some people just don't like him because he was religious. I said Tebow was an awful because he was just wasn't good enough not because he was religious. She really didn't like that. Good lord. Carr and Tebow apologists are the worst.

I picked her up at the park and ride. She was an older woman around 50's or older. But she also had that old lady smell that I hate. So for that reason alone I won't give her a lift anymore more than because she's a FanGram of Carr/Tebow.

ProBowler DT Marcell Dareus, after Bills extended his 5th year option last week was arrested last night for felony possession of controlled substance (supposedly synthetic marijuana-i.e., "spice") and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.........Add speeding to that, the reason he was pulled over to begin with........dumb ass.

Spice is akin to the junk weed they used to sell us kids in the 1970s that was sprayed with PCP. Dude, pony up for some real non-habit-forming marijuana. If not, just spray some weed killer into your mouth.

By giving us what we want.

It must suck that everything you do to make your fans happy seems like a big money grab.

I want more play off games. I want an 18 game schedule (since I'm paying full price for four preseason games).

Damn that NFL, Damn you Goodell.

I honestly can't see the day that I'll be worried about Blake Bortles.

If the Jags handle Bortles correctly then I'm afraid he will be a very good NFL QB.

not what I want, what you want.

The 16 game schedule is just fine, thankyouverymuch.
Now I do not think preseason games should cost as much as regular season games... no way. Not even close to the same quality of play.

And the current playoff set up is just fine too. The more teams that are allowed into the tourney the more it starts to feel like "everybody gets a trophy". But that's probably just me.

I don't see where either change will make the quality of play any better.

And by the end of the season and into the playoffs, the more star players will be on the sidelines on crutches, while you look at the game card line ups wondering "Who Dat?"
