    NFL Thread 12-13

    I'll start it off......

    Brown,
    How does it feel having a Steelers fan as your new owner?


    Also, Preseason or not it's AWESOME that football is on TV right now!

    Wow it sure is starting to look like the Cardinals made a very big mistake in getting Kolb. With them being a division rival, it makes me laugh. Have fun watching Skelton this season Cardinals fans.

    The guy is from Tennessee, owns Flying J/Pilot. He went to Tenn. Anybody that buys into a team is going to say that sort of thing. You could have heard what he has to say now, but that's not something tools at ESPN can chuckle about. It's a good thing he had the Rooneys as an example, they are one of the best in the league. Really it's a pretty similar situation to Cowher who was an assistant under Marty before he replaced Knoll in Rapistburgh. Of course Bill also wore the orange helmet as a player.

    TBH it feels really good having Lerner out who didn't want to have anything to do with running the organization and was constantly giving total power to guys who couldn't handle it. Holmgren was easily his best hire and selling is now his best business decision. If I was a Pitts fan I would not be happy about this development as it removes the one thing that was a constant in so many losing seasons since 99.

    It is an upgrade however you look at it from what you had in place previously. With that being said can you imagine a Lakers Minority owner purchasing the Utah Jazz?

    Did they not do the same thing last year?

    Wasn't there a Tuesday night game a couple years ago? They had to push the Monday night game in Philly back a day because of snow right?

    You seriously don't get it. You need to see it within the context. Haslem had just gotten done explaining he had been a Cowboys and then Colts fan (probably for Peyton). This is when he was buying into his minority interest in the Steelers. This guy is not a lifelong Steeler any more than I am. Of course ESPN uses the one sentence to jab at the Browns. They know how many of us there are and it gets attention.

    It's a non-story. NFL ownership is not easy to get into and you don't get there by putting your nose in the air. I'm certain Haslem would have rather have bought the Titans but these were the opportunities he was afforded. They don't just let anybody in that club.

    As of the other day the dude is somewhere around a billion percent Browns fan.

    Seattle sure does love castoffs from the 49ers. They signed Antonio Bryant (who was later cut) and Braylon Edwards. Now they are bringing in T.O. for a workout.

    I love me my Bills. I hope we have a good defense this year... and a good offense. Special teams wouldn't be bad either.

    Actually, I would just like to sniff the playoffs sometime this millennium at this point.

    Hey Seattle fans, get your popcorn ready. Terrell Owens signed a 1 year deal with the Seahawks today. Assuming they both make their respective teams, this means T.O. and Randy Moss will be going head to head twice this season. So who will have the better comeback season?
