Fallout from my predictions\Tree trouble

Had a chance, between suspensions and preseason games and all of that good stuff, to go back and read all of the comments to my division winner picks, and division loser picks. First of all, thanks for all the feedback. I love a good, spirited debate and you guys, when you weren’t attacking me, did a nice job of going after each other.

Can’t help but think the Marshall saga is far from over

Is this the last time the Broncos will suspend Brandon Marshall? I’m not so sure.

Cowboys’ video screens OK’d for 2009 season

Jerry Jones won’t have to pay to have his massive video screens lifted in the Cowboys’ new stadium. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled Friday, after speaking with the Competition Committee, on how the rules will operate in instances when the ball strikes the boards above the field of play.

Thigpen deal not dead

The Jacksonville Jaguars remain interested in acquiring Kansas City quarterback Tyler Thigpen, and the Chiefs are certainly open to trading him. That mutual interest has not cooled and sources close to the situation maintain this trade could still occur.

Eagles still giving me some cause for concern

The Eagles didn’t look crisp in their third preseason game and made critical mistakes that likely will upset coach Andy Reid.

Faint chant of ‘We want Vick’

After Donovan McNabb threw an interception on the Eagles’ second drive of the second half, a small portion of the Lincoln Financial Field crowd began chanting, “We want Vick.”

Jets rookie Greene hurt, might miss rest of preseason

Rookie RB Shonn Greene, who’s expected to spell Thomas Jones and Leon Washington in the Jets’ running game, could miss the rest of the preseason because of rib cartilage damage, coach Rex Ryan said.

Vick solid in Eagles’ second and third drives

Michael Vick was on the field quite a bit during the Eagles’ second possession of the preseason game against the Jaguars, but he only had one play on the team’s third drive.

Vick well received by Eagles fans upon taking field

Michael Vick took the field on the Eagles’ second play, to mostly loud cheers from a sparse crowd, entering as the quarterback in a Wildcat-like formation.

Vick on the field, ready to go for Eagles

Not only is Michael Vick in the house, he is on the field. I was standing about 50 feet from Vick near the center of the field as he tossed passes to Eagles receivers. Vick stood with QB Donovan McNabb and former Eagles WR Harold Carmichael.

Eagles without many starters, including Westbrook

Michael Vick is making his debut in a matter of minutes, but the Eagles will not have their full first-string offense available.

Will taking wideouts early hurt your fantasy team?

In my latest experts league draft, I decided to focus on wide receivers and passed on taking a second running back until the fifth round. Check out the my full roster to see if this little experiment worked.

Roy Williams in a no-win situation

Well, maybe “no-win” is a little strong, but Roy Williams is in a real conundrum of a situation. Most teams would give an appendage or two to have two front-line wide receivers.

Desperate for QB help, Packers could look to Bucs

The Packers are concerned enough about their backup quarterback spot that they could get involved in trade talks with the Buccaneers, who are shopping Byron Leftwich, Luke McCown and Josh Johnson.

Kendall Simmons preparing for a comeback

Long-time Steelers starting guard Kendall Simmons is pleased with his progress back from Achilles surgery, and looking for the right opportunity to return.
