Faneca Playing Final Season in Pittsburgh

Hat tip to our good friends at PFT: Alan Faneca says that this will be his last season in Pittsburgh and that he hesitates to even remain as co-captain of the offense.

On the other hand, Faneca also said something to the effect that Ben Roethlisberger wasn't ready when he came into the lineup in 2004, and he did pretty well, from what I recall.

Raiders Fire Lombardi

Hey, if Vince was still around, I'm sure they would get rid of him, too.

Occasionally, the ESPN commenters get a good one in.

MMQB: Why Green Is Still a Chief

I thought this would be about the Muppets attempt to overthrow Kermit.

Sadly for "Peter King Discovers Beer and Technology" fans, he's stuck to the old standbys this week.

There's also a lot of really good insight into the Trent Green situation which will probably be ignored in lieu of commenting on the coffee comment. Oh well.

Falcons Defense Good At Hurting Themselves

The draft-day news that Demorrio Williams had torn his pectoral muscle lifting weights (ouch, by the way) has been exacerbated by today's news that Rod Coleman ruptured his right quadricep boating over the weekend and could miss part of the regular season. Combined with the handbags being tossed by Grady Jackson and the team, the Falcons might want to bring Ian Scott back in for a second look.

How do you tear a quad on a boat, exactly, anyway?

Ogden Returning to Ravens

Great news for Ravens fans, as Jonathan Ogden's returning to the Ravens in 2007. He didn't even pull the Dan Wilkinson "I'm going to spend all of training camp deciding" move out of the playbook.

Attn: DC FO Readers

You traded your first-round pick for a bag of footballs.

No, just kidding. I am heading down to DC for the weekend and I have no idea where to watch the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Your suggestions on where to enjoy the agony of Berman and the musk of Kiper would be appreciated. I'll be staying a few blocks away from the White House, near the Metro Center stop on the Red Line. E-mail the suggestions to bbarnwell (-a-) footballoutsiders.com. Much obliged.
