    And in the important off-season news, the Vikes finally appear to be getting their new stadium.

    The House and Senate both passed a bill, then they had to rework a compromise bill. That compromise bill has passed the House and the Vikings have signed off on it (paying $50M more than what they said that their max was and there are some user fees that the Vikes didn't want). The revised bill still has to pass the Senate, but if/when it does, Dayton has already said that he'll sign it. I don't think that too many senators are going to flip their votes on a deal because it'll pretty much guarantee that they lose the Vikes.

    Vibranium, I get being sick of the Browns talk but to say they're going to always suck is a bit much. That's what makes this the greatest sport in the world, competitive balance. Eventually they will be a good team. The Lions were a nightly Jay Leno punchline for 10 years, and only now are they finally getting good. My Patriots had some awful, awful years (so much so they almost left New England, like the Browns and Cleveland). Your Giants had some bad years after those first two Super Bowls.

    Management, and luck, can keep a team down longer than they should be (I'm looking at you Oakland) but eventually everyone is going to get their chance to shine. Maybe not become world champions, but at least be a great team. Heck, those Browns that left have gone on to win a world championship and have been contenders almost every year the last decade. The drawback to this is eventually your favorite team and mine will be in the gutter for a while, probably while the Browns and Redskins of the world are on top.

    finfangfool underestimates:

    The Lions were a nightly Jay Leno punchline for 10 years
    And the sucked for the 40 years before that, too.

    and only now are they finally getting good.
    So it would seem...but we shall see what we shall see. Any team owned by the Fords could collapse upon itself at any moment.

    Except if your read this scouting report on Colt McCoy they discuss that while not having a big rifle arm , he has enough arm strength to be a NFL starter...

    Randy Moss has a new haircut and look for the 49ers. He also dazzled team mates with his practice it seems.

    This seems to be more personal for Moss. That he wants to come back and wants to show he can still play.

    Ok we can just agree to disagree.

    I looked at the Titans 2012 Schedule, and noticed in week 1 they play the Patriots week 1. Looking foward to the playing the Pats because I have wanted to see the Titans payback the Pats after the major embarassment the last time they played. Be a excellent start in Locker's debut if he is the starter to beat the Patriots in his Debut as the Titans starting QB.

    If I'm wrong about BW I'll admit it.

    LOoked at the Titans schedule and noticed they play the Jets on MNF, and the Steelers in a early Thursday Night Football game.

    Arizona just signed DE Calais Campbell, who they had the franchise tag on, to a 5 year contract. He and Darnell Dockett will be bookends on the DL in their 3-4 defense for some time to come.

With the way that the Browns' receivers played last year, you could build a Frankenstein out of the best parts of Brady, Manning and Rodgers and their passing game would still suck. Unless they show significant improvement next year (which is possible for at least one since Little was a rookie), they're pretty likely to continue to suck.

    Josh Cribbs isn't the Browns #1 receiver, either. He was actually #3 last season behind then-rookie Greg Little and Mohamed Massaquoi. Problem is none of them could catch the damn ball when the Browns led the league in dropped passes. Little and Massaquoi are both expected by the team to improve. (Massaquoi is playing for his job at this point.)

    Rookie Travis Benjamin is also now slotted ahead of Cribbs by most "experts." And we have Jordan Norwood, who did okay enough at the end of the season last year to be re-signed for the league minimum.

    Do I wish the Browns had signed a big-name receiver? Hell yes. But we got an A-list running back in the draft, a possible immediate starting quarterback and we shored up the offensive line and the D. Are we going to contend? I doubt it. But we should do better than 4-12.
    Free your soul and let it fly....

    I was going by Firestorm's claim, but Little was even worse on drops. But I'd take him over our #3 receiver (either Jenkins or our rookies). Massaquoi should be playing for his job. He's the kind of crap receiver that the Vikes have had too many of and were drafting a bunch of rookies and signing Simpson to try and get rid of.

    I just don't get why the Browns bothered to go after Weeden. They ignored the biggest problem in the passing game and took him instead. And then they didn't even bother to try and get him help. I'm expecting a lot of handoffs out of the shotgun.


    I'm not sure how much better my Vikes are going to get either. They have made some efforts at their weakest spots, but Kalil isn't going to step in right away and dominate so our line is still going to be a problem. The biggest thing is how much Ponder improves from last year.

    Hell, even my beloved Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl once. Of course they were flat out robbed by the refs, but they DID make it to the big show after a lifetime of losing.
