The problem with Kitna is that you have to budget one turnover per game for him. And it seems to come historically in the 2nd half. But he will turnover the ball at least once a game.

Even in his great year for the Bengals when he won NFL comeback player of the year, he had 23 td's, 15 picks, 7 fumbles.

However, he's smarter than Harrington probably, and can scramble more. He works best in a game managing situation where the running game is clicking and he has a bit of a lead to sit on, he is not the kind of guy you want back there throwing 40 passes per game and trying to catch up from behind.

And Drew Brees just signed with New Orleans!

This really changes the draft up. I still think the Titans take Vince Young, but Leinart could slip as New Orleans and Miami both fix their QB problems.

i wouldnt say that.

who exactly did culpepper have to throw to last year?

They went 2-5 with Culpepper and 7-2 with Brad Johnson last year.
I'm not telling you Johnson is a better talent, but he spread the ball around nicely, didn't turn it over, has won the SB, and maybe most importantly, didn't fuck around with strippers at a boat party.

It's essentially a one year deal since there is a 12mil roster bonus due at the end of this season. Maybe they move down by trading their pick and still grab someone like Leinart or Cutler for much less money. Fergeson is probably going either #1 or #2 now.

D'Brickshaw...what the fuck? Naming him Brickshaw wasn't enough?

Lions sign Josh McCown
Dude couldnt' get out of Denny Green's doghouse. Instead he winds up in Detroit with the mad scientist Mike Martz which couldn't be a better situation for a young, up and coming qb.

It's pretty interesting how quickly the interest in taking on a qb in the first round has been replaced with teams grabbing young, inexperienced guys with some years on their plate. You don't have to pay them nearly as much money and they have a much smaller learning curve.

What the fuk are the Raiders up to?

In Kitna and McCown, you have the two biggest bible thumper QBs in the league. The large Arab / Muslim population in the Michigan area won't know what hit them.

Enough of the disingenuous rhetoric, please, about how Drew Brees signed with New Orleans because he felt at home with the Saints and was comfortable with the program that they are trying to rebuild. The fact is, Brees was left on Tuesday morning with nowhere else to go after he essentially failed the very rigorous physical examination the Miami Dolphins administered to him the previous day. Physical exams in the NFL are very subjective things, and the Miami medical staff felt that Brees' surgically repaired shoulder, although improving, wasn't quite far enough along for the financial exposure the Dolphins would have had if they had agreed to sign the former San Diego starter.

So, on Monday evening, with the medical evaluations in hand, the Dolphins, after determining that Brees and agent Tom Condon wouldn't reduce the contractual liability, turned their attentions back to acquiring quarterback Daunte Culpepper in a trade. Then, very early Tuesday morning -- reliable sources told ESPN.com -- Dolphins coach Nick Saban apprised Condon that Miami was out of the bidding for Brees. In fairness to Brees, Saban told Condon, the Dolphins would stay quiet about the results of the physical exam and the pending trade for Culpepper for a few hours. That would provide Condon and Brees, who had no negotiating leverage remaining with the Dolphins suddenly out of the picture, some time to complete the six-year, $60 million deal with Saints officials. In the end, the Dolphins simply thought Culpepper had a better chance of being on the field for training camp than Brees did.

"We're talking the quarterback position, right?" one Miami source said. "So what would you rather have, a guy coming off knee surgery or off shoulder surgery? You don't throw with your knee."

Izzy's gonna get paid!

You'd think someone who played nine-man football at Kinsmen Stadium in Brandon would be bouncing off the walls after being guaranteed $1.8-million US to play in the NFL.
If Israel Idonije is feeling it, he's not showing it.
The man from humble football beginnings in the Wheat City is still being his same old humble self, even after signing a reported four-year, $8.2-million offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills over the weekend.
Buffalo's contract proposal came with a $1.8-million signing bonus, which means even if Idonije's current team, the Chicago Bears, matches it by Monday's deadline, the former University of Manitoba Bisons defensive tackle is getting that cash no matter what.
"It's good. I'm happy," Idonije said yesterday after a workout at Charleswood's Pro Fitness Training. "It guarantees my family's security, and I'm not really a lavish person, so I'll be smart with that money and put it to work, and I'm going to continue living how I've been living."

His unbelievable story just keeps getting more unbelievable, but Idonije has his feet planted firmly on the ground.
BLESSED
"I've been very blessed," said Idonije, who only started playing football with Brandon's Vincent Massey Vikings nine-man squad when he was in Grade 12. "It's been a great journey so far. To whom much is given, much is expected.
"Regardless of where I am, in Chicago or Buffalo, they're giving me a whole lot, so my focus is ... I want to play to the level beyond what they've paid me. That's what I'm focusing on, and that's what I'm ready to do."
The 25-year-old has spent the last two seasons as a backup defensive lineman and special teamer with the Bears, and now he's a restricted free agent.
Buffalo's contract offer works out to $2.05 million a season, and the Chicago Tribune reported that the Bears had offered him the league minimum of $712,000 per year.
The Bears have until Monday to match the Bills' offer and keep him. If they don't, Idonije will be shuffling off to Buffalo.
OBVIOUSLY A BIG FAN
The Bills' new defensive co-ordinator is Perry Fewell, who was the Bears' secondary coach last season. So it's obvious Fewell is a big fan of Idonije, who isn't really sure where he's headed.
"I'm 50-50 right now," he said. "(The Bears) might match it, they might not. I know they like me there, and I know I like it in Chicago.
"We'll see what happens."
Chicago's defence was one of the best in the NFL last season, and Idonije said the personnel on the D-line isn't expected to change at all.
Buffalo, on the other hand, is starting over after a dismal 2005 campaign.
"Buffalo's a great situation," he said. "They use the same defence we do in Chicago, and I have an opportunity to go in there and ... they're not guaranteeing me a starting spot, but I have an opportunity to go in there and earn a starting position.
"Nothing's guaranteed, but I have a great opportunity there. I've played the defence for two years, and it's a great situation for me."
Regardless of where he ends up, Idonije, who made approximately $230,000 the past two seasons, is about to be set for life. You won't see him blowing his nose with $100 bills, though.
"I'm going to buy my parents a few things, and I bought a house in Winnipeg I'm going to furnish and take care of," he said. "Apart from that, everything's going to be invested."
Besides, NFL money isn't guaranteed, and Idonije knows it. That's why he's working out like there's no tomorrow and has dropped his weight to a lean, mean 263 pounds on his 6-foot-7 frame. "It's a whole lot of money, and I'm excited," he said. "But now that business is done, so let's get back to work."
