    Jets shopping Sanchez???

    This guy has a great strike rate at landing scoops on a lot of deals in all sports over the past few years.

    If you look back over time, he's pretty darn good. There are the odd times when he has swung and missed (Scrabble to Bucs last year was one).

    I think even I have a better strike rate....and what I do is make wild left-field predictions weeks before it's even a rumor. IB just waits for word from inside sources at the time of the happening and then posts.

    On the contrary he has a terrible strike rate. He has a high volume of 'correct' results purely because he posts so many rumours.

    Warren Sapp files for bankruptcy.

    Money management and condoms, the two things most lacking with regards to an American professional athlete.

    Your comment is accurate.

    I think Sapp is filing for bankruptcy to avoid a payout/settlement to Jeremy Shockey, tho.

    You will find that Sapp is claiming that he has lost his SB ring to avoid having to give it up like teammate Chidi Ahanotu did...

    My prediction time....Sanchez to Browns as back-up to overtake McCoy! Just a swing!

    They got nothing on BF gridiron members by way of predictions.

    Bucs have signed former Texans 1st round pick DT Amobi Okoye. He is still only 24 years old. Love the signing.

    Re: 2012 Off-Season Discussion

    If IB is tweeting that Sanchez is being offered for trade, then it actually means that Sanchez is locked in to being the Jets starter for the next two years.

    If there was even half a chance of the rumour being actually one that exists and not one that doesn't have legs outside IB's addled head, wouldn't the likes of Rich Cimini (a noted Jets hater), NY Daily News and the NY Post be all over it?

    Snippet...

    Bengals trade former 9th overall pick Keith Rivers to the Giants for a 5th round draft pick.

    Can be turned into a solid LBer addition if he remains healthy. Not expecting too much, but the talent was there. Liked the guy in college, hopefully he can turn it around. Probably wasn't going to re-sign with the Bengals, in the last year of his rookie contract.

    Interesting admission by Brian Billick

    Jamarcus Russell was highest graded player ever on Ravens draft boards over the years

    Raiders signed Andre hardy. Last two years been playing basketball for Fullerton college. He held a pro day recently as a tight end. Raiders able to sign him as he'd be a free agent basketball player doesn't go thru draft.
