The Weak Ender: The Redskins are working out who?
No, not her.
We have time for one more Chargers Girl, slutting it up for Halloween. Yeah, just Halloween. But if you would like to see more, go here.
THE REDSKINS openly criticized the conditioning of QB Donovan McNabb, probably best known for throwing up in the Super Bowl. And then they bring in JaMarcus Russell for a workout? Were the Redskins merely trying to make themselves feel better about McNabb.
Like hey look, we don't have the fattest quarterback in the league. It's close, mind you. But he's not the fattest.
THE COWBOYS are circling the drain as one of the worst teams in the NFL, with no realistic shot to compete. But when you team sucks, you have to find a way to entertain yourselves in other ways.
I am saying that it's almost safe for work.
WELL AT least Randy Moss will get a bye week this season.
The Titans have been awarded the enigmatic receiver via waivers. Though, sometimes you should be careful what you ask for — or in this case claim. Adding Moss to your team seems to have the same kind of impact as entering into wedlock with Charlie Sheen. Sure, it grabs headlines, and seems like a good idea. But eventually this is just going to end poorly.
Moss will not put up big, consistent numbers, as those days are apparently long gone. There is a chance Moss could have some value if he buys into what coach Jeff Fisher is selling. The Titans players lobbied for Fisher to claim Moss, so the troubled receiver should arrive in Tennessee with a good attitude. Well, as good as he will have until they roll out the Tennessee barbecue buffet in the locker room.
CRAZY PICK of the week ... I am going with the Lions over the Jets.
IS IT me or are the only people who care about the baseball ratings -- other than the networks -- the Yankees and Red Sox fans. Like a poor rating is validation for their lousy teams not making it to the World Series.
I enjoyed the World Series, and if you did too, great. But let's face it. Baseball is somewhat terrible on television. But if we get more games like the two-hour World Series games we were getting, baseball could get back into this thing.
Of course, FOX realized it missed out on tons of ad revenue that they made because A-Rod's typical at-bats lasted as long as According to Jim, but still, people want to carve out short windows to watch games. Entertaining games that end in under three hours is not a bad way to go.
SEPARATION SATURDAY in the WAC and Mountain West. Well, sorta. Boise State will still have to tackle Nevada eventually. But Hawaii will be tough. And to be honest, I am not sure that I want my Warriors to win. This is why having a tournament without automatic conference qualifiers is lame.
The winner of Utah vs. TCU is going to land in the BCS title game. I just feel it.
AND FINALLY ...
If you voted against Prop 19, you are an awful person.
