The NFL showed linebacker Jonathan Vilma a sworn statement from former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams saying that Vilma placed a $10,000 bounty on Brett Favre. Vilma's attorney calls the charge a lie.
For those of us who worship football, it's been a long off-season without our favorite sport.
Even if you pick the top QB for that season, you could end up with a fantasy football flop in that spot. Even the best of players could end up giving you zero value in that category.
The Chargers have already lost their RB and a major WR, Kansas City is a sleeping tiger for 2012, Oakland still goes as Darren McFadden goes and, despite appearances, it's not all about Peyton Manning in Denver.
Why would Peyton Manning, who probably has all the money he will ever need, risk his health to play football? He believes he will be happier playing the game than sitting at home.
When the finely honed bodies of elite athletes break down, these players' compulsion to get back in the game sometimes can lead them to embrace medical procedures that eventually may benefit the duffers among us and more.
Can one huge signing, like Peyton Manning maybe, put your favorite squad over the top? Somewhat surprisingly, the answer has (in recent history) been "yes."
I'm not trying to dump on some of my newscasting brethren, but there were a couple of doozies over the weekend.
Eli Manning wasn't as good as Peyton, but he certainly wasn't terrible. Let's go with the word "serviceable" for Manning -- a word that's a bit too strong when describing the overall quality of this week's show.
John Fox's offensive indifference may have been a source of intense frustration for Panthers' fans, but it was a far more positive attribute when it came to Manning's selection of the Denver Broncos as his second-act home.
I hoped every single day that Peyton Manning would not join the Jets because I want Mark Sanchez as the starter. But all that hoping made me get a big slap in the face when Tim Tebow joined the team.
It was the week of the Etch A Sketch, but apparently the Internet made comedy out of that so fast that there was nothing left for the late night shows...
Broncos fans have lots of reasons to be deliriously and unapologetically excited. In fact, even more exciting than the man that will be the Broncos' quarterback in 2012, is the man that won't.
Is Peyton Manning afraid of the unknown? Is he afraid of facing new defensive strategies? Are we supposed to honor him as the greatest quarterback of all-time because he chooses to play against most of the teams he has met before?
Peyton Manning hit a home run in his introductory news conference yesterday in Denver. He said it's all about hard work and winning. Period.
The Madoff trustee wanted a billion, he got $162 million instead. And nothing has to be paid for three years. So now the Mets are solvent right? They can go back to being a big league team in a big league city right? We can only hope.
