What would a Friday afternoon be without Len Pasquarelli? Today he starts by addressing the issue of revenue sharing and the owners' deal with the players. Jerry Jones feels more optimism than he has any reason to feel: "We'll find an answer, because we have to, and everyone knows that. But what [the solution] is, well, I don't know yet. I don't think anyone does, really."
Pasquarelli also reports that a couple of former first-round picks, Dimitrius Underwood and Rashard Anderson, are going to play in the CFL. Anderson "was reinstated by the NFL a year ago after finally kicking a marijuana habit he had been unable to shake for a long time," according to Pasquarelli, but I can't help but think maybe he's still using the marijuana but is now also using the Original Whizzinator.
The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
