After going 12-4 last week, things get a little tougher in week 3. One game that has my interest is Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay. Both teams are 2-0, which we expected  from the Steelers, but the Bucs are reminding many of the upstart Bucs that blossomed under Tony Dungy. A young vibrant defense and a unheralded leader in quarterback Josh Freeman has things looking up in Tampa.

Jason Taylor of the Miami Dolphins Traded To Washington Redskins

Posted in Jason Taylor, Marcellus Wiley, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins on July 20th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

JT gets his wish

Does anyone play their entire career with one team anymore? Damn…

Jason Taylor could have kept his talent in Miami being that I’m an Eagles fan. A 6’6″ defensive end coming around the corner is not good news for the NFC East.

Phillip Daniels was hurt on the first play of drills Sunday and Dan Snyder moved quickly to acquire the 33 yr. old, 12 year vet with a 2nd round pick next year and a six round pick in 2010 (2010 sounds like some real futuristic ish huh?)

For some reason he and Bill Parcels never got along after Parcels took over. Maybe Dat Dude was right (See you in a couple of days bruh).

Watch out for the ‘Skins. They have addressed most of their needs the past couple of seasons. Snyder has the reputation of a hardline businessman but the man is really putting his team in a position to win now.

Throwback Thursday: Doug Williams, Soul Survivor

Posted in Blogroll, quarterback controversy, race, race and quarterbacks, Race and Sports, race relations, Racial Divide, Racism in Sports, Washington Redskins on January 31st, 2008 by Ronald Glover

The position of quarterback has been a microcosm of the Black struggle in America – a door supposedly “open to all” – except for us of a darker hue who continuously knock, kick and scream until an answer comes.

For eighty years, the Black man has fought tooth and nail to be in a position to lead a professional football franchise to glory. Many came before Doug Williams some may have even been better skilled. But looking back on the life of Douglas Lee Williams -none were better prepared.
